    real player installation


    I have Mandriva 2008.1 Spring and am trying to install real player. I down loaded real player 11 rpm and when i double click the file it asks if i want to install it then it blips to a small window for just a second and then stops. package manager doesn't have it at all. what am i doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Use the rpm command instead of double clicking on the package e.g.
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh somefile.rpm
    RPM will show detailed output if there is any problem. Post that output back.

    what i tried

    I looked at the other post and when i try to install the rpm i get

    Desktop]# rpm -Uvh RealPlayer11GOLD_1.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    lsb >= 3.1 is needed by RealPlayer-11.0.1.1056-20081001.i586


    I tried to do Desktop]# urpmi lsb
    The following packages can't be installed because they depend on packages
    that are older than the installed ones:
    vim-common-7.1-10mdv2008.0
    vim-enhanced-7.1-10mdv2008.0
    lsb-core-3.1-14mdv2007.1
    lsb-3.1-14mdv2007.1
    Continue installation anyway? (Y/n)

    and having the symbols and 3.1 included with no luck it just gave me a list of about 200 items that had 3.1 in them

    Try the following
    Code:
    urpmi.update -a
    urpmi lsb-core lsb
    You need to first make sure that you have added the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva using the tools at easyurpmi.
