If you want to install the packages required to build VLC..try apt-get build-dep vlc
it will install the packages required to build VLC...It should install most if not all what you need to build.It says you are using Ubuntu right?should work on any debian based system thats uses apt.

You surely need to install gcc and make.
use

# apt-get install gcc make
and try again,
or use the solution proposed by stratotak.

What is wrong with simply doing it the way it says on vlc's website ?

Ubuntu Dapper Drake LTS 6.06

Dapper will be supported until June 2009 by Canonical. However, its VLC version is very old, so use our packages to get the latest version.

You can add our repository this way:

Be sure to have a universe repository enabled. Type these commands in a terminal:

echo "deb ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/videolan/ubuntu dapper universe" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vlc.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-esd mozilla-plugin-vlc libdvdcss2

I don't know. It probably works fine.
I use Debian/Lenny. This distro doesn't have the latest version, and when I tried to Install it from vlc website according to Sid's instructions ...

Debian unstable (sid)

VLC's latest packaged version is always in the official Debian unstable branch. However you should still use our apt-get line if you need libdvdcss:

deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main

For a normal install, do:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install vlc libdvdcss2


... it simply couldn't update my sources.list file

So I had to compile from source

How would it not update??or do you mean you couldnt edit the source.list file?
Im running lenny to..and only issue i had when compiling latest vlc was at./config it said live555 was to old..and to either update it or disable it..i choose to disable it..other issue was a libavcodec issue..it said it wasnt built with img_swcale..if i rember right.i had to disable it too ./configure..those were the only 2 issues..it built and installed fine.Like i said if you still want the latest and want to build just use apt-get build-dep vlc..and it will install all the lib-dev files you need..there are alot of them...

No i edit it alright..
# nano /etc/apt/sources.list
added those two lines,

deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main

saved the file and then
# apt-get update

and errors occurred!
