Get an error message when trying to open gui for Mplayer

Well here is the message that I get when trying to start my Mplayer.

[home@localhost home]# gmplayer
MPlayer 1.0pre3-RPM-3.2.2 (C) 2000-2003 MPlayer Team

- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Well if anyone has an idea I would appreciate the help

Are you running it as root!? Well, it almost seems as if your CPU isn't read correctly by something or something along those lines.

I installed the program with apt and yes I was running it as root, but it also wouldn't work when i tried to run it as a user. If someone could help me install by source I would greatly appreciate it. I am still trying to learn my way around linux.

Thanks for the replys
