MPlayer compilation problem.


Hi everyone!
When i'm installing MPlayer-0.9 on RH9, I can read the following text:
ldt_keeper.c: In function `Setup_LDT_Keeper':
ldt_keeper.c:168: storage size of `array' isn't known
ldt_keeper.c:201: sizeof applied to an incomplete type
make[1]: *** [ldt_keeper.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/space/MPlayer-0.90/loader'
make: *** [loader/libloader.a] Error 2

...and I can't doing anything.
Can you help me?

Looks like you are trying to install from a tarball. Have you considered using an rpm.
mplayer.rpm

nah, rpm's suck.

apparently that's an error with the win32 back end, should be affecting you though really,... try...

./configure --disable-win32

and compile again

so does your mother.

and much like acid's mother rpm can be a real bitch...but it is also quite handy for getting things done quick (again like acid's mum).

Uhhh...., is there something I am missing here? Big Nate, are you two really friends, or is it just your time of the month?

Nah, acid likes to post a lot of negative replies and I was just tired of it when I read it.

To acid_kewpie:
Thanks...
I've compiled MPlayer without win32, and now it's working.
