I want to install pymedia an a debian linux with 2.4 kernel. But I always get this error:

according to the header file faad.c includes, the function the compiler is bailing on (FaacDecDecode) only takes 3 arguments but is passed 4 in the code. The source code states that faad support is unfinished but it does play something. try building without faad support if the file will let you.
