Check if you have a compiler (gcc) installed.

Depending on your distro, you may find a pre-compiled package which makes the installation much easier.

You could search in synaptic for xine packages, providing that you have a source in your sources list. I don't have any sources at hand, but I am sure you'll find some in a quick google search.

you need to install gcc so
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
and that should install gcc and other compilers for you or you could just install xine with synaptic as abisko00 sugested
