why wouldn't you just go to mplayers homepage, or sourceforge, or a
similiar site and just download the tarball ?!@

how about you actually read and follow the instructions... -zxvf

actually though as you downloaded a tar.bz2 instead of a tar.fz, use -jxvf instead

so then what do i do for this:

*** Please downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or gcc-3.x! ***

You are not using a supported compiler. We do not have the time to make sure
everything works with compilers other than the ones we use. Use either the
same compiler as we do, or use --disable-gcc-checking but DO *NOT* REPORT BUGS
unless you can reproduce them after recompiling with a 2.95.x or 3.x version!

Note for gcc 2.96 users: Some versions of this compiler are known to miscompile
mplayer and lame (which is used for mencoder). If you get compile errors,
first upgrade to the latest 2.96 release (minimum 2.96-85) and try again.
If the problem still exists, try with gcc 3.x (or 2.95.x) *BEFORE* reporting
bugs!

GCC 2.96 IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED BY US !

*** For details please read DOCS/HTML/en/users-vs-dev.html ***


Error: Bad gcc version

don't try to compile gcc from cold, either pick an rpm to match your distro, or use another approach to compile mplayer... i.e. disable the check.

quote:downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or gcc-3.x

quoter use --disable-gcc-checking

quote:*** For details please read DOCS/HTML/en/users-vs-dev.html ***

ok i did that i went to there site and thats what they said to do. now your telling me not go agianst what that sites saying the one you told me to go to and do it another way with out even telling something useful like somewhere i can find the tar files your think i should have or maybe some more detailed instructions. id think a moderater would be alittle more help full then you have been.

i meant don't compile it as it's a nasty program to try to compile, and far too easy to never get it to work. there are other ways to upgrade to a newer version than going from source, i.e. using an RPM.

You'd do well to carefully read the error message you get. when the configure failed you were given more than two whole paragraphs explaing exactly what the problem was in very straightforward language. that's why they put that in there, so you'd read it and make the change. personally i'y just run "./configure --disable-gcc-checking" but you're free to do whatever you want.
