mingdao@paul:~$ whereis mplayer
Probably something like /usr/bin/mplayer but I don't have that app.
But you asked where to recompile it, sorry. Now, mind you, I run
Slack and it ain't the same as SuSE, but let's give her a go...
You can compile from just about anywhere. A lot of times I just do
it in ~/ and then use "checkinstall" rather than "make install" and that
creates a package for me. So from source we just untar the app,
then cd to it's directory, and read it's README and INSTALL files.
They will tell you how to, and then issue as normal user
su -c "checkinstall"
and enter the root password
and afterwards I "rm -rf <directory>" since I don't need that anymore
and move my package checkinstall created to where I store them.
