I'm having a problem installing VLC on Red hat 6.3

When I try to use

yum install vlc

all goes well until it shows me this in the end:

Error: Package: vlc-2.0.3-6.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires: libminizip.so.1()(64bit)

Error: Package: liblrdf-0.5.0-2.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires: ladspa

Error: Package: libffado-2.1.0-0.8.20120325.svn2088.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires: libconfig++.so.8()(64bit)

also I can't use

yum update

I'm running on a 32-bit processor and I don't know what's wrong.

ok I'v installed live555 and tried again nothing really happened here is my

yum whatprovides *BasicUsageEnviroment

`live555-devel-0-0.34.2012.01.25.el6.x86_64 : Development files for live555.com streaming : libraries Repo : linuxtech-release Matched from: Filename : /usr/include/BasicUsageEnvironment

@quanta it's still persists with yum install vlc , sorry man but I can't run any of my videos it requires updated codec and I can't get any

@quanta here is my yum repolist

repo id repo name status elrepo ELRepo.org Community Enterprise Linux Repository - el6 219 epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64 7,774 linuxtech-release LinuxTECH.NET el6 production repo 934 rpmforge RHEL 6Server - RPMforge.net - dag 4,434 repolist: 13,361

the output is

Setting up Install Process No package vlc.i686 available. Error: Nothing to do

When I tried to use yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rpmforge install vlc

it showed me this at the end

Error: Package: libcaca-0.99-0.1.beta17.el6.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge) Requires: libglut.so.3()(64bit) Error: Package: dirac-1.0.2-1.el6.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge) Requires: libcppunit-1.12.so.1()(64bit)

arch? yum repolist? yum install vlc.i686? –  quanta Sep 21 '12 at 16:19
    
yum install vlc.i686 doesn't work either and it shows me more Error: Package –  holddame Sep 21 '12 at 16:24
    
Append the output of yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rpmforge install vlc to your question? –  quanta Sep 21 '12 at 16:27
    
yum --disablerepo=epel install vlc? –  quanta Sep 21 '12 at 16:40
    
the same original flaw –  holddame Sep 21 '12 at 16:42

You are installing 64-bit package on 32-bit OS. Try this:

rpm -ivh http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/vlc-1.1.13-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm


On my CentOS:

# yum whatprovides *BasicUsageEnvironment
...
live555-devel-0-0.27.2010.04.09.el5.rf.x86_64 : Development files for live555.com streaming libraries
Repo        : rpmforge
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/include/BasicUsageEnvironment

live555-devel-0-0.27.2012.02.04.el5.rf.x86_64 : Development files for live555.com streaming libraries
Repo        : rpmforge
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/include/BasicUsageEnvironment

So, install live555 and try again:

# rpm -ivh http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/live555-0-0.27.2012.02.04.el6.rf.i686.rpm http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/live555-devel-0-0.27.2012.02.04.el6.rf.i686.rpm

I'm appreciating your effort but I used the code and it shows me this error: Failed dependencies: libBasicUsageEnvironment.so.0 is needed by vlc-1.1.13-1.el6.rf.i686 and I'v tried to install it form http and the result was this The name org.freedesktop.PackageKit was not provided by any .service files –  holddame Sep 21 '12 at 14:30
    
@holddame: BasicUsageEnvironment is included in live555 package. updated my answer. –  quanta Sep 21 '12 at 15:15

If you're going to use a bunch of rpmforge RPMs, why not just install the repo? –  Michael Hampton Sep 21 '12 at 15:15
