Installing VLC under Redhat/Fedora
Set up Yum Repositories such as Livna http://rpm.livna.org etc.After you have followed the instructions there.
[email@example.com]# yum install vlc
will install VLC Media Player.
If you have any issues inputting from an external device to the "line-in" under Redhat, be sure to check the /etc/.aumixrc file. By default, it doesn't contain an entry for recording from the line-in device. Add one and reload the mixer settings (the command can be found in /etc/modules.conf) and you're good to go.
