Installing VLC on CentOS 5.8

Postby pschaff » 2012/06/08 19:26:13

Looks like several problems.

1. Some obsolete repos in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Vault.repo are enabled and should not be.
2. No sign of a repo that would carry vlc - such as ATrpms or RPMForge.
3. There appears to be a networking problem.

Fix 3 before tackling the other two. Has yum ever worked on this system?

If more help is needed then please provide more information about your system by running "./getinfo.sh" and showing us the output file.

Hi,

I have resolved the issue regarding update via network. But still yum install vlc is not working. Please see the error:

Code: Select all
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: ftp.oss.eznetsols.org
 * centosplus: ftp.oss.eznetsols.org
 * extras: ftp.oss.eznetsols.org
 * updates: ftp.oss.eznetsols.org
Setting up Install Process
No package vlc available.
Nothing to do


I guess I need to add certain repository. Please let me know step-by-step approach to successfully install vlc on CentOS 5.8.

Thanks

Please read about Installing Software and Repositories, and note the warnings and advice about installing and configuring the yum priorities plugin. Non-core repos should have a higher numeric value, which is a lower priority. Lower is "better" as in golf scores.

Install either ATrpms or RPMforge repo and then "yum install vlc"
