compiling mplayer


i'm trying to compile mplayer in man 9.1. I think i have all the right libs. I get two errors after the make stage tho and i have no idea what they mean.

make[1]: *** [libdha.so.0.1] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/win_c/My Received Files/Mandrake/MPlayer-0.92/l ibdha'
make: *** [libdha/libdha.so] Error 2

If someone could explain a) what they mean and b) how i am supposed to know that i'd be very grateful.

Here's my guess:
The partition you are trying to build in doesn't maintain proper permissions. If you were to move and untar the mplayer tarball to a Linux filesystem/directory then my thought is it would work properly

Cool

./configure --enable-gui

You might not have it installed, or you might now have the -devel version necessary (the headers) that it looks for. You can [usually] point it to the location of the missing file(s) with something like:
./configure --enable-gui --enable-gtk=/usr/local/whatever
OR, you might just have gtk2, check the configure options to see if you need to specify which gtk to use:
./configure --help

Cool
