MPlayer Installation Problem


I'm using Mandriva 2006.

I tried installing mplayer with gui but i was unable to. I managed to get it installed without gui. But I want to have gui now.

What do I do?

Here is the error when I type "./configure --enable-gui" when i want to compile mplayer:

Checking for GTK+ version ... GTK-2 devel packages were not found, trying GTK 1.2
Checking for GTK version ...
Error: The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

Ok so that means I need GTK-2 Devel packages. Where do I get them from and what dependicies do I need. Please help.

Why do you wan to install it from source?
Anyway visit easyurpmi.zarb.org, setup your sources, use the software installer to install programs. You can install mplayer from there too.
