RHEL 7.6 : Unable to install VLC

anonymous coder asked:

I am having issues install VLC Player on RHEL 7.6

I get the following error

Error: Package: libplacebo-0.4.0-2.el7.x86_64 (epel)
           Requires: libvulkan.so.1()(64bit)
Error: Package: 1:vlc-core-3.0.6-17.el7.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
           Requires: libprotobuf-lite.so.8()(64bit)

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I have tried fixing this for the last 3 days, but not able to fix .
Can you someone help with explanation, So that I can understand better and help others as well?

My answer:


The missing package is in the RHEL optional channel, which you need to enable on your system.

subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-optional-rpms

When using RHEL on AWS, enable it this way instead:

yum-config-manager --enable rhui-REGION-rhel-server-optional
