MPlayer help needed...error during installation


Let me start off by saying I'm a total when it comes t o Linux...I just installed RH 9.0, on a dual-boot system alongside windows XP. WHen I downloaded and ran the ./configure --enable-gui command on the MPlayer source code/binary files, it wnet fine-then I try the make command and all hell breaks loose-these are the errors I get:

Here is the easiest way to install MPlayer ( and other RPM based )software
1) go to http://freshrpms.net
2) download apt
3) download synaptic
4) install apt by using the command
rpm -ivh <filename>
5) install synaptic by using the command
rpm -ivh <filename>
6) Type synaptic ona command line and let the fun begin

Hope that helps....

That may be a dependency problem, but I'm not sure.

Red Carpet and apt4rpm are pretty good at depencency resolution. I suggest you install one or both of those and use one of them to try to install it.

Thanks to both

Thanks to chem1 for the advice-I switched to xine, and got it installed with fairly minimal problems, but I'll keep the hint in mind for the future. Also to fancypiper, I think I wll install apt4rpm...heard about it before, but it never applied to me. Many thanks to both of you!
