I am rebuilding some K12LTSP installations our school district currently
maintains and gearing up to take an entire school building 95%+ with
linux terminals. Part of the requirements for the installation are .wmv
and .qt capable plugins for mozilla/firefox and a stand-alone video
I have chosen vlc (VideoLan-Client) because of it's cross-platform
nature. It is use on our Win and OSX systems already and will provide a
fairly transparent experience for the user.
All of this being said, I am having a monster of a time installing it.
Installing from an RPM gives a huge laundry list of missing lib
dependencies and installing through yum (by adding the appropriate
freshmeat.repo) results in the following error msg:
file /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrps.repo from install of
freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc conflicts with file from package
I have done my best to search for a resolution but have come up empty.
Hopefully someone on the list has some experience in this area and can
guide me. Else, I am willing to resolve the listed dependencies on a
case by case basis. Suggestions?
