avifile compile problem


Hey!

I'm having some problems with avifile-0.7.5-20020503.

My config is : slack 8.0 Kernel 2.4.5, kde3, SDL 1.2
It compiled fine on a previous install with the following config :
slack 8, Kernel 2.2.19, kde2, SDL 1.2

**I'm posting this here instead of the slack forum because I think its more software related than distro related...


it gives me the following error:


win32.c:1562: warning: #warning FIXME
win32.c:2577: warning: #warning FIXME!
win32.c:4116: mangle.h: No such file or directory
win32.c:3800: warning: no previous prototype for 'expRegisterClassA
win32.c:3806: No previous prototype for 'expUnRegisterClassA
win32.c: In function ext_stubs
win32.c:4129: parse error before MANGLE
win32.c: In function LookupExternal
win32.c:4202: warning: passing arg 2 of PE_FindExportedFucntion makes pointer from integer without a cast
make[4]: *** [win32.lo] Error 1

and then leaves...

Has anyone had a similar problems, or does anyone have any insight at all?

thanks in advance

yeah i just got that too. that version is only just being delevoped now, probably just a CVS bug. you should stick to 0.6.0 for a while. oh and while i'm here... *cough* mplayer*cough*

Thanks, I use avi cause it uses less ressources, I have a 366 celeron MMX ibm TP iseries 1400, I'm kinda borderline for DiVx, and aviplay is the only one working for me (mplayer didn't even start, yet that was with RH... i'll probably try it)

Anyway, thanks

hmm, on a system that low i'd DEFNINTELY recommend mplayer w/ the FFMpeg divx codecs, they are MUCH more efficient than the avifile ones, and with them i can watch a moderate bitrate divx file on a lowly p200 mmx... not even slightly possible with other codecs. incidentally, mplayer have *jsut* released their very first rpm if you were having troueble compiling it, right at the bottom of the download page.

it does more than any other player you have used, i promies. it can output full screen using erm... 14 different interfaces i think, 5 of which don't even need X running. and version 0.90 is gonna be declared stable next week. kickass. also include THE fastest and best divx encoder/ripper i've ever used

Plus a wonder happend - downloaded mplayer, compiled it and everything worked just fine except gui - as always!!!??
Why don't the mplayerguys fix that permissionthing with the gui?
I know it's easy to complain and whine - but that stumps a lot of people.

cos the gui is alpha. not stable. they think it's *slightly* more important to make an amazingly good player core than a pretty front end, and they've done exactly that. even the gui aurhot says it's crap. but you really don't NEED a gui... so much quicker to go from console.
