    Kernel Bloat--Will this package make my kernel look fat?


    A general question here about adding packages:

    I recently was trying to install DVDrip (to back up the movies I own) and when I opened the rpm with 'Software Installer' it experienced an error resolving the dependancies:

    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Server) is needed by package dvdrip
    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Client) is needed by package dvdrip
    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::ExecFlow) is needed by package dvdrip
    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC::Logger) is needed by package dvdrip
    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::RPC) >= 0.89 is needed by package dvdrip
    Missing Dependency: perl(Event::ExecFlow) >= 0.62 is needed by package dvdrip

    So I went to 'Add/Remove Software' and typed in 'perl,' and got about 2,000 different packages with perl in them. There were no matches for 'perl rpc,' so I was about just go ahead and install all packages that had perl in them, but then I got to think---

    IS THERE A DANGER OF INSTALLING PACKAGES YOU DON'T NEED? I have just installed every package that might fit a desciption in order to get something to work in the past, and everything seems to be okay. But how many times can you do this? Should you do this?

    And can anybody tell me what I need to get DVDrip to work?

    Thanks!

    I don't know why you are refering to the kernel here, it has nothing to do with packages or Perl.

    There's no danger on installing packages you don't need, but I have a question: Have you used yum??

    Yum is a no go

    Sorry about the kernel mixup--still a bit of a newbie here.

    I tried yum--

    [root@localhost ~]# yum install dvdrip
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    No Match for argument: dvdrip
    Nothing to do


    I read another forum where someone said that they got yum to install dvdrip by enabling atrpms and freshrpms. How do you do that?

    Thanks in advance.

    To install yum rpm repo
    rpm -ivh http: //ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm

    Argh. Still more troubles

    Thanks for the reply. I successfully installed the repos as you suggested. Now when I yum install dvdrip, it starts going through the install process but errors out with this:

    Transaction Check Error: file /usr/bin/lsdvd from install of lsdvd-0.16-4.lvn6 conflicts with file from package streamdvd-streamanalyze-0.4-6.lvn5


    Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks in advance!
