    Cannot open VLC for Redhat EL4


    I have installed VLC 0.8.6f and rpm for Redhat EL4.
    But i cannot open the VLC. How can i do?

    Anyone can tell me the detail process of install VLC 0.8.6f for Redhat EL4?
    And then I would like to stream out MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 files from different ports, is it workable?

    Thanks!!

    Hi
    run
    Code:
    yum list all | grep vlc
    or
    Code:
    rpm -q vlc
    to make sure the vlc package is installed. If it is properly installed, run the following command
    Code:
    vlc
    Good Luck

    If you installed vlc properly I don't think you need to add the path to your $PATH variable.Try to run vlc command if it works the directory that contains vlc is already added to your PATH.
    To add the path to your $PATH variable do
    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin
    then open your .bashrc file and add the following line
    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin
    Note that this assumes that vlc is located under /usr/bin. If you don't know the right location you can use find or whereis command.


    Regarding VLC package if you have your repositories set up you only need to run
    Code:
    yum -y install vlc
    this will allow you to install vlc

    Use the following command to check if yum package is installed
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep yum
    If not then you need to install it. You can get yum source from this website
