Wish to Install QuickTime


Because of some friends of mine, I have started "playing" SecondLife. In this "Second Life" world, there are movie theaters where you can actually watch real movies and such. However, these require that you have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer.

This poses no problem in WindowsXP (I have Windows and Fedora set up on a dual boot), however when I am running Second Life from Fedora, I can't watch these movies. Everything else about Second Life runs just fine. So I am figuring that my inability to watch the movie is due to the fact that I don't have quick time installed.

Also, I have not been able to get the voice chat feature to work.

If anyone can help me out in getting QuickTime installed, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if anyone knows how to get the voice chat working on Second Life while running it in Linux, I would greatly appreciate that as well.

Thank you,

Jason

Okay. I checked out that link you sent me and downloaded the quicktime4linux-2.2-src.tar.bz2 file. I then ran the command:

tar jxf quicktime4linux-2.2-src.tar.bz2

This generated a directory named quicktime4linux-2.2. I changed into this directory and ran the command:

./configure

Once this finished I typed:

make

Here is where I ran into a problem. After typing make, I got the following as output:

[root@localhost quicktime4linux-2.2]# make
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
/bin/sh: i686/c_flags: No such file or directory
/bin/sh: i686/lame_flags: No such file or directory
/bin/sh: iy86/objs: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `i686', needed by `all'. Stop.
[root@localhost quicktime4linux-2.2]#

Any ideas why I am having this problem?
