    Cannot install vlc media-player...

    Hello..
    I run Knoppix 6.7.1 from an USB pendrive on my HP Pavilion g6-1b67ca Laptop.
    Using Synaptic Package Manager I tried to install vlc mediaplayer.
    From S.P.M. I get the following message:

    vlc:
    Depends: vlc-nox but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: vlc-plugin-notify but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: vlc-plugin-pulse but it is not going to be installed

    I'm not that well educated to understand what this is all about and I really
    appresiate if somebody could help me with that.
    Thanks

    Thank you, utu,
    Yes, it really helped...the installation was flawless...
    For some reason it's not playing though.
    When I open a video, let's say an .avi file, it starts and immediately stops again.
    Exactly the same behavior as the default GNOME MPlayer..
    When I try with a .divx file I get an error message: see screenshot.

    Greetings, Karibu.
    Have you tried both the stable & unstable versions as Klaus suggested?

    You did not write that you found a solution for your audio device issue. Therefore I am not surprised that the media player cannot play sounds through the default sound device. VLC media player might have an option to disable sound.

    You are totally right: this issue is not solved.
    Therefore my thought was to try vlc, but this didn't solve the issue either ....

    Sorry for the trouble.. there is no need to install vlc... default player works! It was all my fault---! the USB flash drive was only 2GB and therefore not enough space to run a movie. Sorry! PS.: Still no sound though???
