    RE: Problem to install VLC and xmms on RHEL 5
    old thread but, for those searching ... On RHEL 5 or 6 i would NOT even try to install VLC ,or mplayer, nor totem. it is, by far, WAY to easy to kill he install using incompatible software repos that it is not worth the hassle. if you NEED to listen to music or watch movies RHEL is not a good choice of Operating System

    but it isn't "there" yet

    is true BUT fedoras fancy boot uses nouveau so....
    reading leigh's "how to" post is a good start

    remember that if you usr the nvidia.run on fedora you will ALSO need to reinstall therpms for mesa and it's -devel to REINSTALL these
    - gl.h,glext.h,glx.h,glxext.h,libGL.so,libglx.so,
    the .run replaces the DIFFERENT version that fedora uses .

    editing inttab ?

    i would run as root


    su -
    telinit 3

    relogin as root in the text terminal and install the .run

    REBUILD the boot image !!!!!! - a MUST !!!
    one time only when changing from the nouveau

    HOWEVER
    unless you want to do this for EVERY kernel .xorg,mesa,x11 update install
    the " akmod-nvidia" rpm
    that is BY FAR THE MOST easiest one text line and you are done


    yum install akmod-nvidia

    RE: Whats New with Linux
    For a server Debian stable or my preferred ScientificLinux 6.1 or CentOS 6.0 - 6.1 not out yet They are rebuilds of RHEL 6.0 & 6.1 these are not for the normal everyday Desktop install but are very stable repackaging of Red Hat for a "everyday Desktop install " i would use Ubuntu 11.10 for a debian based or OpenSUSE 11.4 for a rpm based ( [b]not[/b] red hat based )

    For a server

    Debian stable
    or my preferred ScientificLinux 6.1
    or CentOS 6.0 - 6.1 not out yet
    They are rebuilds of RHEL 6.0 & 6.1

    these are not for the normal everyday Desktop install
    but are very stable repackaging of Red Hat

    for a "everyday Desktop install "
    i would use Ubuntu 11.10 for a debian based
    or OpenSUSE 11.4 for a rpm based ( not red hat based )
