    Xine installation


    I have just installed red hat 9 on my laptop and have tried installing Xine. I have downloaded the two packages below and simply double clicked them to install. Both appeared to install ok but when I try to run xine nothing happens and I can't find the xine executable anywhere.

    xine-lib-1.0.0-fr0.beta12.1.i386.rpm
    xine-0.9.21-fr1.i386.rpm

    Have I installed them correctly ???
    Have I got the right packages ???

    Thanks

    Open a console and run xine from it, to see if it gives you any errors.
    Otherwise, I'd really recommend that you use MPlayer instead of Xine.

    K3b

    Think I'll give K3B a try

    Why Mplayer instead of Xine ??

    both have their advantages, some people like xine, some like mplayer, I tend to prefer mplayer, but with both offering fairly new releases, they are close to equal now. I have installed and running well on my red hat 9 system using the files I have listed on my site. My k3b has all the features it could possibly have too. If you get those files listed and install them properly, then you should be set for a long time.

    Maybe you aren't like me and therefore prefer GUI programs. In that case, I guess Xine is for you. If you were to ever repent, though, learn to use the shell properly and discover its advantages, then do check out MPlayer. And, I'm not sure about this, but I think MPlayer is a lot faster.
