An ogg music player / compiling MPlayer in Slackware


Hi all,
I'm trying to compile MPlayer on Slackware 12.2 and it isn't going too well. I've done my best
to get things to work, but I am not getting anywhere. I get the error:
Code:
vo_ivtv.c: In function 'ivtv_reset':
vo_ivtv.c:79: error: storage size of 'sd' isn't known
vo_ivtv.c:80: error: storage size of 'sd1' isn't known
vo_ivtv.c:85: error: 'IVTV_IOC_STOP_DECODE' undeclared (first use in this function)
vo_ivtv.c:85: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
vo_ivtv.c:85: error: for each function it appears in.)
vo_ivtv.c:95: error: 'IVTV_IOC_START_DECODE' undeclared (first use in this function)
make[1]: *** [vo_ivtv.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/glen/util/MPlayer-1.0rc1/libvo'
make: *** [libvo/libvo.a] Fehler 2
I tried disabling ivtv but that just caused more problems. Does anybody have any hints? Or
does anybody know a smaller, easier music player that can play ogg files? ogg123 would work if
it only would rewind and fastforward! I can't live without that.

Thanks for the help!

I rtecently had problems installing mplayer - the best thing is to make sure you are using the svn version - the others are more buggy and difficult to compile. There is also a slackbuild script at slackbuild.org but I had trouble getting it to work.

[edit:] sorry! I think I've found the "svn version". There was a how-to on Ubuntu that gave
the command to download it. I'll give it a shot and post back.

I read something about the "svn" version somewhere else too, but I couldn't find it! Sorry for
my poor google-ing skills, but could somebody point me to where I can find it? I checked the
mplayer website without luck.

Have you tried the Slackbuild? I installed it on 2 12.2 systems 2 days ago and both went of without a hitch.

Failing that, the svn version:

Code:
http://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk
to check it out:

Code:
  svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
This is from the mplayer download page:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

which also contains a link to a daily svn snapshot, so I'm not sure how you missed it.

Anyway, I'd try the slackbuild first, then try the daily svn snapshot, then svn directly, but mplayer can be a bit of a pig to compile sometimes.

cheers,

Thanks very much for the help! I am going to have to read up on svn since that was new to me.
I've gotten the svn version to compile successfully on my machine, and it is playling some
lovely music right now. Once again, thanks very much; I really appreciate the help.
