MPlayer or whatever DivX Playback in gnome

Postby Dan-yell » Wed Oct 24, 2012 9:38 am

Hi folks!
First: To the Guy who hast to approve this Post: Take this one, not the other one in which I had a not so good Idea to bring my slashes through!

I'm lying in my bed with a cold :| and wanting to watch some Star Trek Voyager :oops: from my USB HD on my XO 1.5 using the gnome environment of the newest OS built.
No Idea how to install evil divx codec on this virgin open source laptop, but ... doesn't mplayer usually do play all the files on its own?
The wiki page about mplayer seems to be outdated and what I get from typing
Code: Select all
sudo yum install mplayer
is:
Code: Select all
[olpc@xo-cf-85-18 Downloads]$ sudo yum install mplayer

Kein Paket mplayer verfügbar.
Fehler: Nichts zu tun

(Attention: For the forums security configuration reasons I had to replace all slashes by "⁄" (Fraction slash) 

Sorry for this being in german. I would't mind switching the terminal-output (not the rest of the szstem!) to english but someone would have to tell me how ...? (Please?)

For now: Everything seems OK (just some server-hopping) until it says "No package mplayer available" and "error: Nothing to do"

BTW: trying this out nearly took an hour using umts...

Please help a poor sick guy watch his tv shows!
