Did you ./configure --enable-gui or did you install it as a package?

no when i install the rpms it doesnt make a directory so i dont know where to compile it, it says it did it with: Compiled with Runtime CPU Detection - WARNING - this is not optimal!
To get best performance, recompile MPlayer with --disable-runtime-cpudetection

My suggestion is to then remove any and all mplayer related packages, and get apt-get.

use apt-get to install something like gxine or xine with your mplayer packages
i think gxine/xine uses mplayer at the backend?

First make sure an remove any packages you installed when you first tried to install mplayer. Then from the comand line, do
#apt-get install mplayer

just download the source and compile it, its way easier than installing from rpms and it installs nearly everything u need. if u are using a unsupported compiler just tell it to ignore the compiler and walla u good to go

I downloaded all the rpms I needed, then just did rpm -ivh *.rpm (making a special directory for it to put all the downloads in; really easy that way). I got the gui to work that way, so if nothing else works try getting the rpms. (are you using the source?) What rpms?
