Well, technically you don't. You can compile the package and then use something like checkinstall ( www.freshmeat.net ) to install it. At that time it will create a .tgz for you for later use when you hose your system and you need to re-install, you'll then have a slackpack (.tgz) handy

Cool

What file?

rm filename

If it's a directory:
rm -r directoryname

I suggest using -i with ALL rm's:
rm -i filename
rm -ir directoryname

Cool

I believe there is no configure script with that file, I think you just make it...

Is there a README or INSTALL file in the directory?

If not, is there an install.sh file? Looks possibly so..

Make sure you are in the directory containing all the files, then type this:
chmod a+x install
And then type:
./install
And see what happens. You will likely have to be root when you type:
./install
But if there is a README or INSTALL file in that directory follow those directions instead.

Cool

AFAIK there is no program to run, you are installing Libraries to read the DIVX codec, a media player will then use the libraries to watch movies encoded with that codec. In fact you don't even need to install this, if you download:
www.mplayerhq.hu
Then it plays them natively, excellent too, and MANY threads on it.

With your above errors, since there is an INSTALL file you should read it first and do what it tells you to do as they are specific to that application.

Cool
