That message either means the Makefile didn't get created, make wasn't ran, OR if everything is "ok" then it simply means with your options, on your platform, there is nothing needing to be done; it's just a message not an error or warning.

Cool

If that was the make install command, nothing is left to be done...run the application it's installed.

If it wasn't added to the menu, you should be able to launch if from the terminal by simply typing in "xine".

It really depends, there isn't a definitive answer. If you are set on installing from source instead of using your distros package manager, you should read the associated README and INSTALL files that usually accompany the source. Typically a make install with put the executable binaries in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin both of which are usually in your environment variable PATH. So by opening up a terminal and just typing:
xine
You should be able to launch it, this assumes it got installed somewhere inside the $PATH variable.

Cool

Or you can use whereis

whereis xine

It should return the path to xine; type that into a terminal and it should launch. Not sure whether it will do more than just that, though. Mine crashes as soon as it comes up although it is fine whenever I run it by right-clicking a video file and selecting xine to play it.

Hi, we answered your question... xine-ui appears to have successfully installed. If it did it will symlink xine-ui to just xine, so typing "xine" should launch it. As I said above, if you must install from source you should read the associated README/INSTALL files accompanying the source code. Installing using your package manager will help to avoid quarky build issues including the installation location.

Cool
