Hi all, when I type gmplayer in to a prompt I get the messages below. Can anyone shed any light on this, I'm completely lost. I've got my nVidia drivers installed. I've installed all the rpms including rpms
for the gui and skins and it just ain't working. How close ( or far ) am I from playing movies?
What does "To get best performance, recompile
MPlayer with --disable-runtime-cpudetection" mean? How do I do it?
The output messages:
[root@pc3-cani1-3-cust38 root]# gmplayer
Using GNU internationalization
Original domain: messages
Original dirname: /usr/share/locale
Current domain: mplayer
Current dirname: /usr/share/locale
MPlayer 0.90pre9-RPM-3.1 (C) 2000-2002 Arpad Gereoffy
CPU: Advanced Micro Devices Athlon K75 Pluto,Orion
(Family: 6, Stepping: 1)
CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 0
Compiled with RUNTIME CPU Detection - warning, it's
not optimal! To get best performance, recompile
MPlayer with --disable-runtime-cpudetection
[cfg] read config file: /root/.mplayer/gui.conf
gmplayer: relocation error: gmplayer: undefined
Drop the gui, it's very alpha and buggy. Besides mplayer works fine without.
Try to run mplayer, if it does not work try to run mplayer -v for more verbose output and try to make sense of it. In case you fail, try another post here with the output of mplayer -v.
oh and make yourself an user account, toying around with the root account is outright dangerous.
I don't know exactly what your problem is, here are some possible problems:
You have to have the default gui install for gmplayer to work
Also either font package
Read the docs on where to put these, and also some other possible solutions if these don't work, it has helped me alot.
I've solved the problem! After going to the download site, I found links to specific hardware which were at the bottom of the page after telling you which files to download......... so I downloaded the RPMs for the AMD K6 and hey presto it worked !!! How annoying !!
