Mplayer and Xine Re-install

Just installing mplayer from RPMS leaves a number of dependency issues. However, now that we've added freshrpms to our yum table (see last post), the command

sudo yum install mplayer mplayer-fonts mplayer-skins

takes care of most of that. I suspect that I could now do the full update if needed, all the libraries are present.

And, in fact, to get a proper working copy of mplayer I had to repeat all of the steps I'd done before.

A proper installation of xine requires:

sudo yum install xine xine-lib xine-lib-devel xine-skins

So far they both seem to work.
