  1. VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
    If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
    you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root and
    cannot be run by non-trusted users first).

  2. it didnt work for me
    i did the above process

    at last im getting this error….
    Error: Package: liblrdf-0.5.0-2.el6.i686 (linuxtech-release)
    Requires: ladspa
    Error: Package: vlc-2.0.5-8.el6.i686 (linuxtech-release)
    Requires: libminizip.so.1
    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
    please help me…

  3. I can’t get it to work. From root if I do command sed -i ‘s/geteuid/getppid/’ /usr/bin/vlc I get sed: -e expression #1, char 1: unknown command: `?’
