Missing library, I think I have found it!?!
I have installed slackware 11, along with mplayer and kplayer from hte linuxpackages.net website.
When I try to play a wmv in kplayer it complains that it can't find libavformat.so.1
afetr a breif search on hte internet all references to libavformat (and libavcodec) point to a program called ffmpeg.
Does this mean that I need to install ffmpeg to get that required library? looking on linuxpackages.net there is an ffmpeg package but the description says it has further requirements, do all those requirements need installing as well? and is this what is meant by dependance hell?
