    Installing vlc player


    Hello,

    I had extracted a tar file of vlc media player. In the directory that I had extracted the vlc player, this is how the it looks :

    Code:
    [gini2012@localhost Downloads]$ ls
    vlc-2.0.4
    vlc-2.0.4.tar
    [gini2012@localhost Downloads]$
    What would be the step by step to install the vlc player now.

    Please help.



    Thanks,
    Aigini

    vlc for redhat/fedora is part of and can be installed via the RPM fusion repositories.
    Configuration - RPM Fusion

    However, if you have reason to compile from source:
    UnixCompile - VideoLAN Wiki
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    compiling from source is cumbersome if you haven't done it before. First you need vlc not vnc inatalled right.
    1.Get rpm fusion anywhere online.
    2. run
    Code:
    yum install vlc
    as root
