Mplayer build: configure finds ALSA, but mplayer doesn't[SOLVED]


Hello!

I just built mplayer from source on my amd64 debian testing machine. './configure --enable-gui --enable-menu' outputs (among other things):
Code:
Checking for ALSA audio ... yes (using alsa 1.0.x and alsa/asoundlib.h)
and in the end:
Code:
  Enabled optional drivers:
    Input: ftp network tv-v4l2 tv-v4l tv mpdvdkit2 vcd dvb
    Codecs: libavcodec real xanim faad2(internal) libmpeg2 liba52 mp3lib tremor(internal) libmad
    Audio output: alsa jack esd arts oss nas mpegpes(dvb)
    Video output: xvidix cvidix md5sum pnm jpeg png mpegpes(dvb) opengl xv x11 xover tga
    Audio filters:
  Disabled optional drivers:
    Input: vstream tv-bsdbt848 live555 cdda dvdread smb
    Codecs: qtx opendivx x264 xvid libdv amr_wb amr_nb dshow/dmo win32 faac musepack libdts libtheora speex twolame toolame liblzo gif
    Audio output: sgi sun openal polyp dxr2 dsound win32 sdl
    Video output: winvidix bl zr zr2 dxr3 dxr2 directx sdl vesa gif89a fbdev svga caca aa ggi xmga mga dga xvmc directfb tdfx_vid s3fb tdfxfb 3dfx
    Audio filters: ladspa
so everything should be fine concerning ALSA. Then I do the build (using the suggested command 'DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-gui --enable-menu" fakeroot debian/rules binary') and the install of the debian-package without any errors. However the installed mplayer doesn't have ALSA output:
Code:
jorgen@panter:~/dill/mplayer/MPlayer-1.0pre8$ mplayer -ao help
MPlayer 1.0pre7try2-3.4.6 (C) 2000-2005 MPlayer Team
CPU: Advanced Micro Devices  (Family: 8, Stepping: 2)
Detected cache-line size is 64 bytes

Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 3DNow 3DNowEx SSE SSE2


Available audio output drivers:
        mpegpes DVB audio output
        oss     OSS/ioctl audio output
        null    Null audio output
        pcm     RAW PCM/WAVE file writer audio output
Anyone knows what I have to do to get ALSA?

Cheers!

Okay this maybe totally unrelated, but an observation:

Are you trying to compile MPlayer 1.0pre8? If so, why would the compile show "MPlayer 1.0pre7try2-3.4.6"?

I'm not sure how builds work in Debian, but I would have run:
# ./mplayer -ao help
from the build directory which would check the local binary.

Ahh, excellent.

The ./mplayer -ao help in the build directory yielded the expected audio output. I had totally forgotten the old install (not installed in the debian way ). Now I just have to clean that one out...

Thanks for the observation!!

Can you check if alsa-lib is linked properly using 'ldd' ?

[mirandam@charon MPlayer-1.0rc2]$ ldd ./mplayer | grep asound
libasound.so.2 => /lib/libasound.so.2 (0x0555a000)

yes,
I think:

Code:
laj@NeXT:~/Desktop/mplayer-checkout-2007-09-19$ ldd ./mplayer | grep asound
        libasound.so.2 => /usr/lib/libasound.so.2 (0xb71f5000)
laj@NeXT:~/Desktop/mplayer-checkout-2007-09-19$
on Ubuntu
