Hi thuongkiet82!!!

You are typing the wrong commands. The correct should be:

make && make install

usually, the errors are reported when you type ./configure. Configure checks for the installed components and create other files necessary for make. First try ./configure, if any errors appears, post it here. If no errors are reported, then make and make install. Remember to always read the documentation of Xine. Sometimes, you need to pass some sort of "special" information to ./configure, as telling where a library is, enable/disable features or path to install the application. You might want to read this thread for further information:

the very best way, is to always read the documentation. ./configure, make && make install are _not_ standards. Some program compile directly using make, some with a direct call to gcc -o yadda yadda yadda, for example

Good luck!
