I see a package “x246-0.120-5.20120303.el6 (i686)” available in my Add/Remove Software tool. I can’t find said package in any of the repos I’ve searched through.
Can anyone point me to a link where I can download that package to my local repo?
on my CentOS 5.8 box, “yum whatprovides /usr/bin/x264” says:
x264-0.0.0-0.4.20101111.el5.rf.i386 : Library for encoding and decoding H264/AVC
: video streams
the “rf” in the rpm name implies rpmforge, I believe.
It should be x264, not x246. Mixing repos will give you lots of head aches, but anyway here you go:
If “Add/Remove Software” sees it, that means that yum can also see it. Simply doing “yum install x264” as root should work.
Perhaps the problem is that you misspelt the name, as Nux said.
Thank you for your help. I really appreciate your assistance.
Please forgive the slightly dyslexic typo.
Found that one a couple of days ago. I don’t like the idea of mixing repos either that’s why I was looking for the one that the package manager found, “x264-0.120-5.20120303.el6.i686.rpm” , not the one from the nux repo.
“yum info x264”
I found the package in rpmfusion-free-updates.repo.
Thanks for the help all.
