Problems with mplayer GUI in Fedora C2 x86_64


I recently compiled and installed mplayer-1.0pre3try2 on my Fedora C2 T2 x86_64 system. I'm running kernel 2.6.5-1.327. In command line mode, mplayer works great, playing music and video with no problem.

The trouble is that when I try to compile for the GUI version, the configure script insists that I need X11 support. I have tried even specifying the location of X11 libraries and include files - to no avail. Here is my configuration command:

./configure --enable-gui --with-x11libdir=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11 --with-x11incdir=/usr/X11R6/include/X11 --with-codecsdir=/usr/lib/win32

Here is the end of the output from the configure script:
____________________________
...
Checking for byte order ... Little Endian
Checking for shared postprocess lib ... no
Checking for OSD menu ... no
Checking for QTX codecs ... no
Checking for Subtitles sorting ... yes
Checking for XMMS inputplugin support ... no
Checking for FLAC support ... yes (using internal libmpflac)
Checking for inet6 ... yes
Checking for gethostbyname2 ... yes
Checking for GUI ... yes

Error: X11 support required for GUI compilation

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

I realize that this is all pre-release software. But this seems to be more along the lines of a configuration problem. When I installed Fedora C2 T2, I had it install everything. Anyone have any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

i expect the development package has not been installed, but a trick i use to get info about things like this is to open the configure script and go to the line that says "Checking for GUI" and see what tests it performs. you should easily be able to see what is missing, or recreate the tests yourself to see what errors it is dealing with to assume there is no X support.

The configure.log file kept complaining about incompatible libXext files when it tried to make a test window as part of the X11 test. When the attempt to make a test window failed, the script was concluding that X11 was not supported.

It turns out the problem was that I was compiling using /usr/X11R6/lib. When I compiled using lib64, all of the problems vanished!

My final, successful configuration command line was:

./configure --enable-gui --with-x11libdir=/usr/X11R6/lib64 --with-x11incdir=/usr/X11R6/include --enable-largefiles --with-codecsdir=/usr/local/share/mplayer/codecs

I copied all of my downloaded codecs to /usr/local/share/mplayer/codecs before configuring.

Thanks!

Did the compilation for win32 codes support succeed?

When I enable win32 using the "--enable-win32" configure switch, it configures OK, but the compile fails. It seems to run into trouble at this point:

... and so on

I have never played around much with Wine. It is not installed on my system - which is probably why the compile fails ...

I have the same problem, I also get always the the error "Error: X11 support required for GUI compilation

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

I checked the configure. log and looked as you said under "Checking for GUI" and its empty.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
