Dominik, Thank you for replying, but I have more to tell I guess.
Originally, I ran rpm for common, gui, and skins all in one line and the
thing just said "preparing XXXXXXXXX [33%] for about a half hour. That
is when I thought I had misunderstood the example on
http://www.piorunek.pl/~dominik/linux/pkgs/mplayer/ and that maybe I
should only have done the common. So I quit the session and then did
only common. Now I cannot seem to get the whole thing installed.

Could I ask you for some more detailed instructions please?

Thank you sir.

Kind regards,
