Unhappy xine and gcc


Trying to install xine or mplayer. I have RH9 but when trying to configure it says I have no cc or gcc compilar. Found where to get gcc but install is confusing, any rookie way to do this. Dos rh9 come with one? found a folder in usr/lib/gcc-lib that has 2 files that may apply Any help I just want a video player.

well..... i shudder to think what the redhat enthusiasts out there might say about this solution, but i'm always inherently drawn to installing new stuff with apt whenever possible, and since it now exists for rpms, you might want to give that a try. here is a good article for newbies explaining how to do it in rh8, but it works fine in 9 too, just whenever it tells you to look for 8 stuff, look for 9. hope this helps.

Smile finally


About time I got some good advice. What you suggested saved me 2 days work. I've been trying with countless downloads and sites etc. Can't belive it was just this easy, everyone should use this method. Thanks a lot for making it easy, the windows way(pardon me but isn't that how its supposed to be)
Thanks again

this isn't the windows way-it's the debian way!
