    working with src.rpm, mplayer install

    I am trying to install mplayer on fedora core1. I have the 3 packages for mplayer and the lame src.rpm from sourceforge. When i try to instal them all at once it says
    "warning : mplayer-comon....rpm V3 DSA signatuer : NOKEY , key ID 75aa026a
    error: failed dependencies: is need by mplayer-gui......"

    on another site someone said
    "you need to rebuild a *.src.rpm first before you can install it.
    basically as root:
    rpm --rebuild *.src.rpm
    i don't use fedora so i don't know how different it's file structure is from red hat. but for me, after rebuilding, rpm binaries are found in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386"
    i tried this and it said
    "rpm: arguments to --root (-r) must begin with a /"
    How do I use this .src.rpm file? If you guys could help me that would be absolutly wonderful!

    You should probably use rpmbuild --rebuild <src.pgk>

    Try that instead...
