    I wouldn't install MPlayer from an RPM at all, you'll miss a lot of optimization that way. Download the source code instead. You probably won't get depency errors that way either, as long as you have the basic build tools installed.

    ok, dolda I am a total noob and probably couldnt compile the source

    the error message is:
    Packages not Found
    The Following packages could not be found on your system.
    Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
    then long list:
    the probleem is: I HAVE installed most of these and it still asks for them

    It's not hard to compile from source. GNU autoconf/automake has automated almost everything for you. Just download the .tar.gz file, unpack it with "tar -xvzf filename.tar.gz", then enter the new directory with cd, and run these commands:
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    And that's it.

    I installed it by rpm in red hat 9 and it works fine.
    Dolda is right, you can optimize more by using the source, but I can't be bothered, lol.

    Anyway, what linux are you using and what are the exact names of the packages you have installed and what are the dependencies and how exactly are you installing them?
