Mplayer make error


Hi,

I'm trying to install mplayer (following mjmwired.net's MPlayer - Fedora Guide guide) Everything is working perfect until I have to run the make command. I get the following errors at the end:
...
In file included from pci_names.c:7:
pci_dev_ids.c:1617:18: warning: trigraph ??) ignored, use -trigraphs to enable
pci_names.c:1577:23: warning: trigraph ??) ignored, use -trigraphs to enable
#cc -shared -Wl,-soname,libdha.so.1 -o libdha.so.1.0 libdha.o mtrr.o pci.o pci_names.o
cc -shared -Wl,-soname -Wl,libdha.so.1.0 -o libdha.so.1.0 libdha.o mtrr.o pci.o pci_names.o
ln -sf libdha.so.1.0 libdha.so.1
ln: creating symbolic link `libdha.so.1' to `libdha.so.1.0': Operation not permitted
make[1]: *** [libdha.so.1.0] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jan/docs/downloads/programs/MPlayer-1.0pre6a/libdha'
make: *** [libdha/libdha.so] Error 2

I don't know what to do about it. Anyone an idea?
Thanks,

Jan

Well try not to run it as root... 'cause the error comes from problem of rigths so it can't create the link...

Have you check permissions on the directory and its subdirectories...
Does your filesystem is ext2/reiser/xfs or jfs ??? 'cause if that's fat or vfat I think it will never cause it can't manage linux symlinks
