Putting Synaptic to one side, and after having done the apt-get update,
you can simply type.
apt-get install vlc

To say the least, it will be interesting to see if apt-get has any
problems with the vlc package, especially as you've had problems
installing it with Yum.
I really have to admire the ingenuity...telling someone that is stepping
on their dick with cross repo contamination from yum to use apt-get.

I'm going to monitor this thread for sure


The only reason I suggested apt-get, is that he would be effectively starting with a clean sheet. I gave him the URL for adding freshrpms to /etc/apt/sources.list, so he then could do an apt-get update, which would download the package lists for the first time with apt-get, for fedora updates, everything, and "only" freshrpms. Livna not entering the equation.

Then an apt-get install vlc  may have printed out some usefull info.

If he does have some problem with Yum, trying with Apt, if Apt worked ok, might confirm it.

He doesn't appear to have read what I said though, as now he's trying to get apt-get to get vlc from Livna.

I'll post him back on list, and try and find out what he's done.


Hi Nigel, I wanted to see if apt-get would work with livna and found out it doesn't as I sent you. I am now looking at removing yum from this F8 and from the F8 DVD re-load an entire new yum. But not yet sure I can do that.

But it doesn't matter much. This is just fun to see if old time methods work. If not nothing much lost.
