Mplayer, GCC and Red Hat 7.1


I need helppppp...

I would like to have the new mplayer version on my red hat 7.1.

The pb is that it refuses to compile because of gcc ( 2.96 wich is unsupported)

i decided to try gcc 3.xxx which is on the red had 7.2 cdrom but how to install 2 version of a same program on my linux ????

i try some rpm -ivh --force, some rpm -Uvh ....

and lost my gcc, nothing at all compiled !! i had to reinstall gcc through the installation wizard.

i would like to have the 2 versions of gcc on my computer and launch the one i desire, is it possible ?

thanks for any advice.

just installing them with rpm -ivh WILL work fine. you should NOT need to force anything, as they are seperate packages and will happily live side by side.

not the faintest idea. make sure you're using the newest cvs for it, but that error doesn't look particuarly mplayer based... maybe an issue with your glibc or something...

try making clean and starting again.

DEMUXER: Too many (4096 in 8266519 bytes) video packets in the buffer!
(maybe you play a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed)
a52: CRC check failed![


is this a memory problem ?

a hardware problem ?

if it continues, i will have to use win... to watch DVD !!!

(only a joke!!!)

thanks for any help!

dunno exactly what that would mean, i get that when i'm playing totally screwed up files. maybe you're not decrypting files properly or haven't installed it properly. I'd think that any questions from this stage would really best be aimed at the mplayer lists, there's vastly more info there.

I found this....

I found this on the mplayer webiste which may be off help to you.

2.3.2. Audio output devices

MPlayer's audio interface is called libao2. It currently contains these drivers:

General:

oss

OSS (ioctl) driver
sdl
SDL driver (supports up/downsampling, ESD, ARTS etc)
nas
NAS (Network Audio System) driver
alsa5
native ALSA 0.5 driver
alsa9
native ALSA 0.9 driver (works, but has problems -> use OSS)
sun
SUN audio driver (/dev/audio) for BSD and Solaris8 users


Fact is, Linux sound card drivers have compatibility problems. It may take a while to find your optimal settings.

If you have an OSS driver, first try -ao oss (this is the default). If you experience glitches, halts or anything out of the ordinary, try -ao sdl
(NOTE: you need to have SDL libraries and header files installed). The SDL audio driver helps in a lot of cases and also supports ESD, ARTS,
and up/downsampling. (ESD is the sound daemon from GNOME, ARTS is from KDE.)
If you have ALSA version 0.5, then you almost always have to use -ao alsa5 , since ALSA 0.5 has buggy OSS emulation code, and will crash
MPlayer with a message like this:
DEMUXER: Too many (945 in 8390980 bytes) video packets in the buffer!

If you have ALSA version 0.9 you may choose between -ao oss and -ao sdl. You can also use -ao alsa9. It works, but there are problems like
lost sync and disappearing audio.

On Solaris/FreeBSD systems, use the SUN audio driver with the -ao sun option, otherwise neither video nor audio will work.


Hope this helps
