mplayer doesn't need gcc-3.4.3 to compile. sound's like you should look for a precompiled binaray package for your distro..

*** 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

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed

that is what i get when i do the ./configure command to mplayer

if you're installing mplayer, why do you want ffmpeg too? a fork of ffmpeg is included inside mplayer, which will work much more effectively.

either way, it says you have no gcc installed at all. what happens if you run "gcc --version" ?

well then, you do NOT have gcc installed after all... all the error messages that said exactly that were correct... install it.

alternatively if you're on a distribution that supports it (--- please fil in your profile), install apt4rpm (or use the orignial apt on ubuntu / debian) to download the prebuilt packages for you automatically, that way you won't need to compile stuff and the installation of programs will be very simple, which is what you'd prefer i assume... especiailly with a nice visual front end like synaptic.

ok, suse 9.2. in yast there's probably an option to install "development packages" or something... that'll dump all the relevant packages from the cd into your system, and you'll be off compiling all over the place.
