have you got Freshrpm's an or Livna repo enabled?.. you can play mp3 within Audacious an xmms an you can play DVD in Xine or Mplayer

if your dualbooting, go to Freshrpm's an or Livna an download the appropiate codecs

Hi Greg,

See the bit about no internet connection? At best it's going to be difficult

I think one problem would be satisfying dependencies when installing players, etc.

exactly,, yum will complain about other deps but he should be able to browse for those rpm's by going to those websites

Note Just dont Mix the rpm's with others, have livna an freshrpm's together in 1 package

No, there are many files to download and their dependencies. Best advice is to borrow someone's internet connection and follow one of the many guides already posted many, many times in this forum.

if you choose to use xmms you'll need xmms-mp3 ..for DvD an avi files.. Mplayer
Quote:
mplayer-1.0-0.90.rc2.lvn8 mplayerplug-in-3.45-2.lvn8 mplayer-gui-1.0-0.90.rc2.lvn8 vdr-mplayer-0.10.1-1.lvn8
will be the names of the files you'll need yo play DvD or if you wanna play DvD's in xine you'll need

xine-lib-1.1.10.1-1.fc8
xine-lib-arts-1.1.10.1-1.fc8
xine-0.99.5-1.lvn8
xine-lib-extras-nonfree-1.1.10.1-1.lvn8

as Wayne said get or borrow someones internet connection to download these , as yum will need to resolve the dependancies as it may need other software

Why would you recommend freshrpms ? ( there repo is poorly maintained and will just cause deps errors )

also why would you recommend two conflicting repos ( livna & freshrpms )
