    yum dependency problems


    I am trying to install a media player that can play .wmv files. I first tried mplayer and then xine.

    In each case I get yum dependency errors:

    yum install mplayer
    Error: Missing Dependency: libtheora = 0:1.0alpha3-5 is needed by package theora-tools

    yum install xine
    --> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Missing Dependency: libssl.so.5 is needed by package xine
    Error: Missing Dependency: libreadline.so.5 is needed by package xine
    Error: Missing Dependency: libcrypto.so.5 is needed by package xine
    Error: Missing Dependency: libkrb5support.so.0 is needed by package xine
    Error: Missing Dependency: libFLAC.so.7 is needed by package xine-lib

    How do I go about fixing this?

    I am running CentOS 4.4 and I believe that I have installed The Grey Sector YUM Repository @ http://rpm.greysector.net/yum.html

    I have added the greysector.repo to /etc/yum.repos.d and imported the key.

    I also have freshrpms.repo, Centos-Media.repo, Centos-Base.repo, rpmforge.repo, kbsingh-CentOS-Misc.repo, kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo

    Do I need to add additional repositories? I don't understand why all the dependencies are in the repositories.

    Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

    thanks.

    Evidently they arn't on the repo sites, You can try adding livna but i don't know if it supports CentOs or not.When i used it as a server i compiled everything from source.I would just google for repo's if you can and cross your fingers.If you can't you're going to have to install them all by hand.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was able to get a little bit farther but ran into more problems with what yum says are missing dependencies.

    I think that if I am to get these applications working on CentOS I will have to do as you say and install them from source.
