Installing Xine


Well... it's been a couple of days and I'm actually really enjoying F3. A couple of problems have arisen that I will post in two seperate threads.

I downloaded Xine to view the joke mails I get (good business case, eh?) and read the installation guide. Here is a dump of what happened:

[rob@localhost xine-lib-1-rc3a]$ ./configure
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
[rob@localhost xine-lib-1-rc3a]$ make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.


So what can I do to rectify the compile error?

Thanks in advance...
Rob

I think you have not installed gcc the C compiler. Take a look on the Fedora cd's for it.

Why don't you use Yum Extender [click me] or just yum and install Xine without problems. Run "yum install xine" and it should work installing all dependencies too.

Fedora diesn't ship xine, it ships totem with a gstreamer backend. You need to add extra yum repositories such as freshrpms and dag.

i also found out today that i had installed the codecs into /usr/lib/win32, which was correct for xine, but i also had to install the same codecs into /usr/local/lib/codecs for totem and mplayer

but now i still have sound problems, , bascially, when i stream, i have no sound, but they do play the mp3 files i have on my computer

also, nothing i have plays wmv or wma files

any suggestions?
