Upgrade the Entertainment System

Hacking and cracking is a tedious activity that requires a certain level of distraction to help you stay sane. Specifically, we're talking about audio/visual entertainment that will keep the right side of your brain amused while the left side comes up with attack strategies. You'll need a media player that works well with numerous formats and OS types, which pretty much means you need to install VLC (aka VideoLan).

To install VLC, type the following:

su –l
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm
http://dl.atrpms.net/all/libdvdnav4-0.1.10-2.fc7.i386.rpm
yum install vlc (this take a while)

Everything should now be ready to go. Music should be playing. And you can take some delight in seeing a customized icon each time you look at your desktop. It's time to take a break and enjoy some classic gaming.
