Im sorry I forgot to tell you to extract the freeking files
this is the command (i was typeing this in my terminal and installing the file without thinking about it and telling you the wrong thing to type here) sorry about that. You can credit it to old age
"tar xvf MPlayer-0.90pre3.tar"
Then you CD to the new directory and compile the program
damn i feel stupid now. this is a good example of useing a command for to long and posting off the top of your head. If i had looked in my books we could have had this done an hour ago. Sorry again for waisting your time.
