    You need to install the devel versions of libmad, modplug, mpcdec, ebml and modplug. If you don't have the versions you need in the repos, you may need to compile from source. Another option would be to install VLC from the livna repo by doing
    Code:
    #yum install vlc

    If you don't want to use yum, then you have to compile the packages from source (if you enter the names in google, you should see links to the homepage of the developers of each library). Another option would be to search for the devel packages from pbone and install using rpm.
