I'm having a problem installing VLC on Red hat 6.3

When I try to use

yum install vlc

all goes well until it shows me this in the end:

Error: Package: vlc-2.0.3-6.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires:

Error: Package: liblrdf-0.5.0-2.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires: ladspa

Error: Package: libffado-2.1.0-0.8.20120325.svn2088.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires:

I'm running on a 32-bit processor and I don't know what's wrong.

You are trying to install the 64-bit version of VLC based on the errors:

Error: Package: vlc-2.0.3-6.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires:


Error: Package: libffado-2.1.0-0.8.20120325.svn2088.el6.x86_64 (linuxtech-release) Requires:

You sure your processor is only a 32-bit that would mean its either fairly old ( i.e. over a decade ) or severaly limited and under powered.

>You are trying to install the 64-bit version of VLC based on the errors: so what can I do to install the 32-bit version ? – holddame Sep 21 '12 at 12:49
@holddame - Use a 64-bit operating system considering the Pentium D is a 64-bit processor. – Ramhound Sep 21 '12 at 17:03
