Cannot comiple mplayer1.0pre5

I tried to compile mplayer1.0pre sources on Fedora Core 2.
But when I ran "./configure --enable-gui --enable-largefiles --enable-menu" I got
"Checking for bitypes.h (inttypes.h predecessor) ...
Error: Cannot find header either inttypes.h or bitypes.h (see DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html)."

Could any one help me solve this problem?
I am running Fedora Core 2 on the Thinkpad T22.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried reading DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html? I know it may seem strange, but when a program tells you to do something to solve a problem, it's usually best to do so.

You could simply download the RPM from http://tettnang.freshrpms.rnet.

if you take that road log in as root or type "su"

the rpm -Uv mplayer-1. (press tab)

it will undoubtedly spit back dependancies that aren't met but everything you need is at the same site you downloaded the stuff from.

hint it might tell you something like that it needs fame, and All of that will be gotten with thew fame package.

also mp3lame will be put in with lame

You don't get as many options with rpm, but it usually works pretty well.

I read the readme file, but it was of no help.
The readme file told me to copy a inttypes.h file from a "invalid" Web link to /usr/local/include/
