Am I missing something here;

Download the RPM packages tarballs listed in the section below and uncompress them in the same directory :

$ tar zxf

Then, as root, install the packages:

# rpm -U vlc/* --force

I said I was retarded I just extracted into the root of the folder but the command was looking for the vlc folder, duh! noe I get "[[email protected] DVD]# rpm -U vlc/* --force
warning: vlc/a52dec-0.7.4-6.1.fc2.fr.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
error: Failed dependencies:
fribidi is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1
libfribidi.so.0 is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1
libkdeui.so.4 is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1
libkio.so.4 is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1
Which looks like I don't have the vlc media player installed.
