Mplayerplug-in does not build, what's missing?


I've learned some nice stuff about Linux but getting the mplayerplug-in for Mozilla to build seems over my head. Is there any way i could get the mplayerplug-in.so and mplayerplug-in.xpt precompiled?

All I get when running the config is:

bash-2.05b# ./configure
checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

----------------------------------
And the config.log file says:
----------------------------------

configure:1469: checking for C++ compiler default output file name
configure:1472: g++ conftest.cc >&5
g++: installation problem, cannot exec `as': No such file or directory
configure:1475: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h. */
|
| #define PACKAGE_NAME "mplayerplug-in"
| #define PACKAGE_TARNAME "mplayerplug-in"
| #define PACKAGE_VERSION "2.66"
| #define PACKAGE_STRING "mplayerplug-in 2.66"
| #define PACKAGE_BUGREPORT "mplayerplug-in-devel@lists.sourceforge.net"
| /* end confdefs.h. */
|
| int
| main ()
| {
|
| ;
| return 0;
| }

What's missing here? Grateful for all speculations/tips.

I have had that same error message with a couple of other compiles that I have done. I am still searching for the answer. Are you trying to compile while your in Gnome or X? This is when I had the problem. Logout and try again, then if that does not work, then reboot and try in console. I have not done what keefaz said, but I did a full slack install. But definately try all of these separate to find, the problem, and let us know. Good Luck

Just install binutils package will fix your issue, try that before any other solution

Try doing "whereis as". If you don't get a result, you need to install the binutils package.

If you do get a result, add it to your path like this:
export PATH="$PATH":/path/to/directory/as/is/in/
before you run configure.

Binutils got the configure script blasting all the way through. Great! Also, i realised that i skipped the devel packages when installing slack ... duh. So i went to pkgtool and installed the entire /d dir again. This cleared things up a bit.

Still, when doing the Make, most .h files are included without hassle but some of them seem to have tons of syntax errors looking like these:

Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.h:131: error: parse error before `)' token
Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.h:134: error: parse error before `)' token
Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.h:137: error: parse error before `)' token
Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.h:140: error: parse error before `)' token

Source/nsScriptablePeer.h:129: error: parse error before `)' token
Source/nsScriptablePeer.h:129: error: parse error before `)' token
Source/nsScriptablePeer.h:129: error: parse error before `)' token

And in the end gives a "make: *** [plugin.o] Error 1".

If you guys still bare with me =) - What did i miss this time?

Can you post the line 131 of Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.h file ?
