I'm new to Linux and have a dedicated server that I recently had video share software loaded onto by the company I purchased it from. After the support staff loaded it, they sent me an email saying that my "modules" were not correct.
I ask for specifics, and they sent me an email with 4 items that needed to be addressed. svn checkout for Mplayer, lame source file not installed, flvtool2 not installed, and install codecs.
While I know how to edit files on the server, I have no clue where these things are, and my search tool on the server doesn't seem to help.
I also checked in my "Add modules" option, and there were none.
Can anyone help me?

You probably have to add them through the command line. I'm sure they are already on the HD in whatever packages RH uses. I use FreeBSD so I don't know exactly where they are found.

What version of RedHat is this? That's going to determine which repos you can use - and you'll have to add at least one to get flvtools. Once you have the right repos, it's just a matter of (as root):
Code: [ Select ]
up2date install subversion lame-devel flvtools mplayer


I must say though, it looks as though you mean to install mplayer from source on an RPM-based machine, if you do this, you'll lose your customized version the very next time you attempt to update the system or install/update any packages dependent upon mplayer. If you must install from source for whatever reason, you should be building an RPM or using a source-based distro, like Gentoo.
