The best way to get a working mplayer is to forget about rpms and compile it from source. I can tell you how exactly if you want. There is perfect instructions included in the source code package's READ ME as well. A tricky bit is LAME which you need if you want to use mplayer's mencoder to make divx from dvds. I personaly think that mencoder makes the nicest rips i have ever seen. Cheers.
well. Go to... http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/
and download the source code package, untar it, then navigate to the place you untarred it and then open it then look around until you see the READ ME and then read it. That should do it. You are going to need your kernel source installed and your X11 development packages to satisfy dependencies before you compile Mplayer. Cheers.
The kernel source is different than your actual kernel. Look in /usr/src and see if there is anything there. The source is about 150 meg. There will be your kernel source on your disc three (a guess). Also there should be all kinds of devel pckgs, including the X11 stuff. cheers.
