Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it's a great player, does about all the stuff mplayer does (and some more), and it has very good user support. also, the newest version plays divx 5.
wow, that's *the* way to get my back up right now! bad thing to say! mplayer does VASTLY more than xine does. Xine is just shiny, mplayer DOES stuff... and mplayer is 2nd most active project on freshmeat (95%. kernel = 100%) and Xine comes in around 30% i think.. anyway. MPlayer kicks 10 shades of something or other out of Xine any day of the week, expect in terms of GUI's.. which you don't need anyway. try running xine without X.. that's a good enough start...
Ok here is what you do - go to http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/~jcm/skyblade and get yourself a xine rpm. It works fine with suse 7.3 should be ok with 8.0 too but I didn't try and probably never will.
To compile mplayer you first read the doc's to see what you need or want and how to enable it.
If you just want to check it out. Unpack the tarball. Then cd to the directory of mplayer. When you are there do ./configure and then make and make install.
Works without any trouble (with suse 7.3)
Yeah I have the same problem with divX. It says just extract and install but it doesnt work. When I run MPlayer it says that the filetype is not supported. So if anyone knows how to get rid of this then please tell me. Thanx

mplayer (in my experience) only supports codecs if it can find them at compile time. I suggest compiling it yourself and paying careful attention to the list of codecs that it says are and are not available after you ./configure
Make sure you grab the win32 zip file from the site too and extract its contents to /usr/lib/win32
Instaling xanim and its codecs should give you even more possible files to play.
I'm having problems with mplayer divx audio codec.
I have the latest version of mplayer.
I've recompiled several times after making multiple changes:
- added /usr/local/lib to ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig
- moved the w32 codec to /usr/local/lib/w32
- ./configure --enable-gui gives me only oss for audio
I'm using emu10k1 for my audigy platinum card, but I can't get audio from a divx format!! mplayer gives me an error stating i need to specify divx audio at compile time, but it's installing the libavcodec, which I thought has all the divx audio stuff.
