Broken SDL Install (Adventures in upgrading)


Okay, I decided to upgrade from 1.2.5 to 1.2.6. Stupid me however, neglected to uninstall 1.2.5 first, and hence, after installing the 1.2.6 RPM and devel RPM, all SDL applications ceased working. When I backtrace, I get a different error for different apps, but an error nonetheless. In the end, they all get a SIG_PIPE error now.

I have tried uninstalling 1.2.6 and reinstalling 1.2.5, and did the same with all of the broken applications, but the problem persists. I've attempted to install from source, but neither the release nor the CVS will make. The release dies with this error:
SDL_RLEaccel.c: In function `RLEClipBlit':
SDL_RLEaccel.c:845: error: invalid `asm': invalid expression as operand
SDL_RLEaccel.c:845: error: invalid `asm': invalid expression as operand
SDL_RLEaccel.c:845: error: invalid `asm': invalid expression as operand


So, my question is this: How can I get SDL working again (i don't care which version), short of wiping and reinstalling, which is something I didn't expect to do again after leaving Windows behind?

I'm running Mdk9.2, GForce4Ti4600 with the latest drivers.

If I was you, I'd to uninstall all rpm's, source-whatever and then use whereis and (s)locate to track any remaining files of sdl and delete them manually. Then reinstall sdl... and sure, reinstall with Mandrake disks to make sure it won't screw stuff up
