mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libdvdread.so.3: cannot open shared ob


That's the error.

This is the third thing I've tried to install using installpkg with a .tgz file, and I'm not having any success. Well, I don't know about swaret, because I haven't tried to use it yet - just installed it with installpkg.

I did installpkg mplayer-1.0pre3-i686-1rob.tgz and figured that would get the job done. It seemed to work just fine, no error messages and it returned me to # but when I typed mplayer I get ->

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libdvdread.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've searched here and Google, with no solution. I'm new to Slack and don't know if this is a dependency I can go get somewhere, or what to do. I think it's time to forget about installpkg and .tgz files and just continue to compile from source. That just always seems to work for me.

The dependencies are listed in ftp://ftp.linuxpackages.net/pub/Slac...slack-required . You'll find the packages in the ftp://ftp.linuxpackages.net/pub/Slackware-9.1/robert/ dir I guess

Hello.

You have to install dvdread library.
But it is better to compile mplayer by yourself. It will detect the system and installed libraries, codecs etc. You will have mplayer prepared to run on your system.
Compiling mplayer is very easy, just go to the folder that contains source and type:
./configure
./make
./make install
Default install directory is /usr/local/bin, you can change it by:
./configure --prefix=/your/choice

Arek.

hi there!

just a short info...
if you run mplayer as "normal" user you problably won't have access to
these libraries.. And the error message will look like that..

xxx yyyy - permission denied..
xxxyyy libdvdead cannot be opened...

Cheers,

np

I've downloaded the source, and will read some more (after a few hours sleep) before I mess it up again. Thanks Slackie!
