    Hi I just resently install vlc player with yum in fedora core 4. It work right away without any problems. Here is how I did it.

    first open konsole, type 'su' then your password for administrator rights
    Then finally type 'yum install vlc'
    And now your system will install vlc player without any problems

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers

    He is using Yoper and your instructions are Fedora specific. As for Yoper I believe it uses apt. Have you tried from the command line (as root):
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install vlc

    thank you for your answers .
    Yes I have already tried to use apt get but Vlc is not in the Yoper 's depository .
    To resolve the dependancies : the system lacks 10 libs , is it possible to install them by hand one by one .....?

    You could but you could be there for ever tracking down dependencies. Try and get as many as possible through apt.

    A better solution would be to see if there is a third party apt repository that has vlc packages for Yoper. I haven't had much luck finding a 3rd party repository but maybe you know of a good place to look (sorry, my Yoper knowledge goes as far as using it for about 10 minutes once).

    Just use yum to install the missing libs you need. Or just download the latest versions from the web, it doesn't take as long as you might think. Libs are fast to install.
