Use flag confusion


Hi everyone,
I understand the concept of use flags, so that you dont compile programs with useless things/things you dont want to use.

I was wondering if there is a way to emerge a program with all available flags, e.g. totemplayer.

for some reason emerge wont use my package.use file either, here is what is inside it.

Code:
net-fs/samba acl cups kerberos ldap ldapsam pam swat winbind
media-video/mplayer "MMX MMX2 SSE SSE2 3DNow 3DNowExt mad avi live matroska mpeg oggvorbis real theora xanim opengl aac sdl xv dts dvdread win32codecs"
media-video/totem "3dnow sse aac dts mmx x264 xvid"
Also for some reason i cant access my fileserver, do i have to setup samba to do that?

Why double quotes in package.use?

What kind of fileserver you have there? Linux, Mac, Windows, something else?

the fileserver is running XP SP2

Right now im making a new package.use and i will later reedit my make.conf file, and then redo my packages.

Here is the new package.use im making however ive got a few questions:
1. do i have to put for say mplayer; media-video/mplayer or mplayer.
2. do i need a special command to use my package.use file/how do i tell its being used
Code:
##Video Programs

# Mplayer
media-video/mplayer aac amr dts mad matroska theora win32codecs xanim xvid directfb alsa fbcon opengl oss xinerama xv 3dnow 3dnowext dvd dvdread mmx nvidia sse sse2 xvmc samba 
mplayer aac amr dts mad matroska theora win32codecs xanim xvid directfb alsa fbcon opengl oss xinerama xv 3dnow 3dnowext dvd dvdread mmx nvidia sse sse2 xvmc samba

# DVD::Rip + transcode
media-video/dvdrip a52 avi dvdread divx4linux dv encode fame mpeg ogg quicktime vorbis xvid
dvdrip a52 avi dvdread divx4linux dv encode fame mpeg ogg quicktime vorbis xvid
transcode a52 avi dvdread divx4linux dv encode fame mpeg ogg quicktime vorbis xvid
media-video/transcode a52 avi dvdread divx4linux dv encode fame mpeg ogg quicktime vorbis xvid

##Audio Programs
# Audacious
media-sound/audacious chardet nls gnome
media-plugins/audacious-docklet nls
media-plugins/eq-audacious mmx sse sse2
media-plugins/audacious-xosd 
media-plugins/audacious-plugins aac alsa chardet flac modplug mp3 musepack nls sndfile vorbis wavpack wma
I would also like to know about automatic mounting of things, like when i plug my USB Fat32 disk in i would like it to automatically mount. If someone could reccomend me packages for things like this, also for dvd's e.t.c.

cheers.
Julius

media-video/mplayer is the correct form, if you get the syntax right package.use will be used without any additional command.
You need smbmount to mount Windows shares. I think it comes with net-fs/smbfs.
You may want to open a new thread for your automount question.
