I would like to have (commandline) VLC installed on my 6.5 server. After several days I decided to see if I can get some help, because I'm stuck.

#yum --disablerepo=epel install vlc

Results in ->

Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/lib64/ from install of libva-1.0.6-1.el6.rf.x86_64 conflicts with file from package libva1-1.3.1-11.el6.x86_64

This issue seems to be the only one.

libva-1.3.1-11.el6.src.rpm is apperently installed.

My repo-list

ClearCenter Marketplace: fetching repositories...
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* clearos:
* clearos-addons:
* clearos-contribs:
* clearos-core:
* clearos-extras:
* clearos-fast-updates:
* clearos-updates:
* epel: Prio = low
* private-clearcenter-dyndns:
* remi-safe: Prio = low
* rpmforge: Prio = low

Any other install process is even worse and I don't want other repo's.

How-to proceed ?

    I hate to say this but running with third party repos enable carries high risk and it is hard for anyone to know the state of your system. You are having a conflict with an rpmforge package, I think. How to sort it I have no idea.

    If you do add third party repos you should add them disabled and only enable them when installing specific packages otherwise a "yum update" will pull packages from them automatically.

    Also why do you have epel? ClearOS comes with clearos-epel, but disabled by default. It is set up to exclude a number packages known to conflict with ClearOS.

    You can possibly try sorting out the mess by doing a "yum list installed" and see if you can downgrade packages back to the ClearOS versions where possible but you'll need to do a lot of dependency checking.
