    Hi

    yum localinstall where will be installed path location???
    suppose if i want to remove local install, how can i do this?

    but here http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/ different details given

    Not exists the repo
    ————–
    yum localinstall –nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/testing/6/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-6-0.1.noarch.rpm
    yum localinstall –nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/testing/6/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-6-0.1.noarch.rpm

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @narayana – Thanks for pointing out..the links are corrected and working now..

      1. You can get actual location of install file using following command.

      rpm -ql rpmfusion-free-release-6-0.1.noarch.rpm
      

      2. If you want to remove a package from the local install use the following option.

      yum remove rpmfusion-free-release-6-0.1.noarch.rpm

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Chandan,
      Remove libcaca-0.99-0 and then try the command.

    • Chris says:

      Go into terminal and type “yum –enablerepo=rpmforge install libupnp-1.6.6-1.el6.rf.x86_64″ Once this completes, then run the “yum –enablerepo=remi-test install vlc” command and it should install. I just ran into the same issue, and that is how I was able to solve it.

      Hope this helps.

      • Ravi Saive says:

        Chris, thanks for the trick, hope it will help other users.

    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

    In your instructions for running VLC, you note that it is not supposed to be run as root, yet your bash command is for a root shell (admitedly there are many users who skim the article text and just read the commands)

    It Should read as follows

    “$ vlc”

    But you have

    “# vlc”

    The ‘#’ is reserved for root shells.

      Sorry for delay in replying, May I know on which version of Linux distribution you trying to install VLC?

    i installed vlc by login through root user and i can see the icon of vlc also but when i clicked on it , it doesn’t work means nothing happen , please tell me what to do

  31. av says:

    Another way to
    Install VLC in RPM base linux distros, Open the terminal and follow few steps as root

    #cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
    #wget http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/release/linuxtech.repo
    #yum install vlc

    NOTE: may your system will update few library files, accept all or as required, but all those are required for vlc.

    • Ravi Saive says:
