    Code:
    [root@RedhatPart Garrett]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
    [root@RedhatPart yum.repos.d]# tar -zxf repos.tar.gz
    tar (child): repos.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    [root@RedhatPart yum.repos.d]#
    When I went to use Add/Remove after adding those two files Add/Remove now searches the internet as I had hoped, thanks. But I'M still not getting anywhere with VLC.

    When I searched for and tried to install vlc, this is what I got.

    required stuff
    vlc-1.1.7-67.1.el6.i686 requires libminizip.so.1
    vlc-1.1.7-67.1.el6.i686 requires libXpm.so.4
    vlc-1.1.7-67.1.el6.i686 requires libdvdread.so.4
    SDL_image-1.2.10-1.el6.i686 requires libSDL-1.2.so.0

    I got to install these lib packages, or at least the onse I can find, and then I get this error:

    GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-atrpms

    GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-atrpmsvl

    I just need to be able to play .avi files from RH so I can make my way through the Linux RH training course but apparently I need to be a pro just to watch the training videos.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can skip the gpg signature check with the yum option --nogpgcheck when you go to install those packages.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I didn't download or install the packages with the command line, nor do I know how. I used Add/Remove.

    Go to command line. SU to root. Then do this:
    Code:
    yum --nogpgcheck install package-name

    You need to remove the Red Hat repositories from /etc/yum.repos.d in order for this to work. The SL or CentOS repositories will serve up the same set of applications, code, kernels, etc, but without holding you hostage.
