Mplayer problems installing it on mandriva 2006


my problem is i try to install player and it says I did ./configure before that happened

Code:
Detected operating system: Linux
Detected host architecture: i386
Checking for cc version ... 4.0.1, bad
Checking for gcc version ... 4.0.1, bad
Checking for gcc-3.4 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.3 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.2 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.1 version ... not found
Checking for gcc3 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.0 version ... not found
Checking for cc version ... 4.0.1, bad

*** Please downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or gcc-3.x! ***

You are not using a supported compiler. We do not have the time to make sure
everything works with compilers other than the ones we use.  Use either the
same compiler as we do, or use --disable-gcc-checking but DO *NOT* REPORT BUGS
unless you can reproduce them after recompiling with a 2.95.x or 3.x version!
i dont really know what a compiler is or where could i get one and theres may versions of linux so im lost i be thankful if you could guide me in how to install mplayer

any help is appreciated

Compilers and stuff can be hard to understand, definitely. Have you tried just using urpmi to install it? Just log in as root, then type "urpmi mplayer" without the quotes. If you haven't set up urpmi, try easyurpmi.zarb.org for help.

Open "configure your computer" then "Install software".Type mplayer in the field near to Search buton and press it.In the results below choose mplayer and mplayer-gu.Install them.
About gcc you need version between 2.95-3.x.
Where to find - in the same place "Install software".

You can find it in Start--> Multimedia

thanks for the help
one of the plugins i had on mozilla din't let the video play i just unistalled it now it works fine

i appreciated all the help I been trying to do this for a while

few more question how do you find the path of a program
like i have a program and is asking what program to use and i need to use the mplayer for it but theres no right click and properties like windows that will tell you whres the program and when i do search it doesnt tell me where it is

damm got another problem now i went to the site and it says
Quote:
Win32 codecs: If you plan to use MPlayer on x86 architecture, you will possibly need them. Download a codec package from our codecs page and put the codecs in /usr/local/lib/codecs BEFORE compiling MPlayer, otherwise no Win32 support will be compiled!
so i need to unistall and install mplayer back again but before that i have to put the codecs in that folder
i managed to make the folder codecs on there by using the command mkdir but now im trying to drag and drop the codecs there and it wont let me put them there for some reason so i think i have to use the commands cut and paste but im not sure what commands those are any help is appreciated

Install the package 'win32codecs' (no quotes) the same way that you installed mplayer - using urpmi or menu->System->Configuration->Packaging->install

The whole point of having packages for stuff like this is that you don't have to go through tedious and difficult manual steps like they list at the mplayer website
