thanks acid, sorry trickykid,

im wondering if someone here has succesfully installed mplayer using gcc version 3.2

gcc - suggested versions are: 2.95.3, 2.95.4 and 3.1. NEVER use 2.96 or 3.0.x!

i didnt relize this until i had already installed mplayer. the reason why i ask is i get no video but i do get sound. i think i unpacked the codecs fonts and skins right. so any answers would be very helpfull. also how do you go about uninstalling something like mplayer. i havent found any documentation about doing this.

thanks,
AD

http://packages.debian.org/testing/d...ibpng-dev.html

this is what it is. source code is at the bottom of the page. downloading and installing doesn't mean that it will solve the problem either. could make for more problems. i might need to downgraded on the compiler. that means something else i will screw up. was hoping someone has installed mplayer with my compiler version 3.2-7.

thanks,
AD

Since you're running RH, can't you get RPMs and install it that way?
