Problems compiling XMMS 1.2.10 on Ubuntu 6.10


The ./configure went well

make gives this error at the ending:

Code:
sm.c:151: error: conflicting types for ‘sm_init’
sm.h:24: error: previous declaration of ‘sm_init’ was here
make[4]: *** [sm.o] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/thezealicon/Desktop/xmms-1.2.10/xmms'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/thezealicon/Desktop/xmms-1.2.10/xmms'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/thezealicon/Desktop/xmms-1.2.10'
make: *** [all] Error 2
What do I do?

What do I do?
I'd open a terminal window and do the command
Code:
sudo apt-get install xmms
You are trying to install it from source. Why?

It may be that you have to modify your /etc/apt/sources.list if the package manager isn't showing much as available.

This is a pretty good place to look if it does transpire that you have to do that. Theres no real reason to install from source unless theres no .deb available for the package that you want to install. If you looked in your menu there should be an entry for either aptitude, synaptic or just "package manager" or "software installer". I'd use that.

regards

John

Da nada my friend.

It's just that I'm a great believer in using the package manager where possible. Installing from source might be a useful thing to know for obscure packages/apps but it can make life hard work. Like a river, I try to take the easiest possible course.
