There are one problem with mplayer - it colud not be compiled with gcc 2.96 - so it cold not be compiled in RedHat 7.2

You can find xine at www.freshrpms.net(enigma.freshrpms.net for RH 7.2) that should play divX ;-) for you. It needs the win32 codec dlls.

And its an rpm.

2.96 is a slightly broken release, made by redhat, it doesn't compile properly, but redhat decided to use it anyway. you can just give an option to ignore the error to MPlayer at ./configure. Alternatively just install a newer version of gcc. MPlayer whups Xine's ass completely.
