xine and ESD install problem


(new to linux)

I'm trying to install xine from its source (I've tried rpm, but it just creates a xine that won't work properly), and as I'm trying to ./configure one of the deps it complains:

checking for ESD - version >= 0.2.8... no
*** The esd-config script installed by ESD could not be found
*** If ESD was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the ESD_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to esd-config.

If I try to ./configure xine itself, it outputs this same message (among others for missing deps).

I checked /usr/bin for esd-config (it's there and version 0.2.28), and then I tried setting the environment variable using:

# export ESD_CONFIG=/usr/bin:$ESD_CONFIG
and
# export ESD_CONFIG=/usr/bin/esd-config
(I saw a bit of different syntax somewhere else)

but the ./configure for the dep gives the same error message for both export variations....

what i normally do with things like that is to look at the configure script to see what the test being done actually is and replicate it. there should also be an option to specificy the location of esd to configure, like --with-esdprefix or something, --help for details

(or install a good player like mplayerhq.hu )

Thanks for the advice; I checked configure and tried:

# ./configure --with-esd-prefix=/usr/bin/

...but it gave exactly the same error....

It's alright... I eventually went with acid_kewpie's recommendation of MPlayer, and after a good deal of (solvable) problems compiling from its source, I've got it working (mostly).

If I would have taken the time to read the configure script, I probably could have forced it to notice esd (as I had to do with png support and the gui for MPlayer--the effect of learning as you go along); next time I'll be more through
