prob with MPlayer, gcc compiler


when I try to install. I get this:
Code:
[brutal@localhost MPlayer-0.90]$ ./configure enable-gui
Detected operating system: Linux
Detected host architecture: i386
Checking for gcc version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.1 version ... not found
Checking for gcc3 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.0 version ... not found
Checking for cc version ... not found
 
*** 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/users_against_developers.html ***
 
 
Error: Bad gcc version

anyone able to help a guy out with this?

OK, you try to compile mplayer with a gcc (gnu c compiler) version, which is not supported.
You need to upgrade you C compiler. Which distro are you using?

DUH! Just saw it! LOL

So, redhat 9 , right?

well, then make it easy on yourself and go to:
http://shrike.freshrpms.net/
and download the rpms. Why compile, when somebody else did already?

True!
But...*speechless* does Linux run without GCC?

Anyways, yup, you need to get GCC if you wanna compile - or stick with rpms....
