well I'm having problems installing it. I keep getting gcc error I need to update it so how do I update the gcc?
Actually I got the latest GCC 3.3.2. Now I'm having a problem installing GCC into the comp.
cant say i know a lot about mandrake, just that its similar to red hat as far as being system V. No advice there, just usually when you get only sound out of a video, its a codec issue. Have you done searches on this elsewhere?
beejay - Mandrake can use terminal URPMI commands to snatch updates, codecs, etcetera for programs and applications. I snagged my copy of mplayer with skins and codecs just by punching in various URPMI commands. Perhaps you could give that a shot and see if you can get some codexs for your player.
