Gatos: help please with basic compiling of Components

Hello, I'm taking on this task to get my video in on the Radeon 64MB DDR Vivo to work. I'm a real Noob so here goes:

ffmpeg: downloaded CVS

I ran the ./configure in the ffmpeg directory and I get this output:

"CVS repository has been moved to mplayerhq. Check at http://"

I don't know what it is telling me or if the command did anything.

I then type "make" at the prompt as per the instructions and get:

"Makefile:5: config.mak: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `config.mak'. Stop.

so I'm stuck and cant do the next instruction which is:
Type 'make install' to install ffmpeg and ffserver in

so what the heck is going on please

Ok I figured it out. I went to the website and did another ffmpeg CVS update from there. Then everything worked fine I think.

So now I am trying to install drm-kernel. so I downloaded it with CVS and when I follow the instructions "make -f Makefile.linux" I get:

Error: Could not locate kernel tree in /lib/modules/2.4.21-199-default/build/include /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-199-default/include /usr/src/linux/include /usr/include

Can anyone tell me what that is all about?

the package needs the kernel source tree, download the kernel, make sure you download the kernel it asks for (2.4.21-199-default) and extract it in the /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-199-default/ directory, then try compiling the package again
