Installing Mplayer & Mplayer GUI

i kno this has been asked a million time...and i've been through the older threads trying to find a solution..but i if anyone can help me fully get this installed i would really appreciate it..i've been trying for 2 days now lol..i have Fedora Core 2 installed on a Compaq Presario with a 160 gig hard drive and 512mb ram

i have everything installed...mplayer rpm...fonts..skins..and codecs..

when i type ./configure --enable-gui
or even ./configure by itself

i get this error message

Check configure.log if you wonder why an autodetection failed (check whether
the development headers/packages are installed).
Do not report compilation errors if you used any of the --enable-* options
(except --enable-gui and maybe --enable-debug).

Pllleeaseee i would love to get this fully installed

First off, read the configure.log like the message tells you, it will most likely contain some better information.

As a first-aid: make sure you have installed gcc and it's dependencies/related tools, because if you do not have all the needed compilation tools (those that configure needs), it will fail.

So the problem is where? Try typing this into a terminal:
I'd imagine the Fedora RPM would have the GUI enabled...

As you can see, ./configure can't find some header files needed, or find them too old for the installation. You should read your configure.log, find the failed stage, check header files and versions needed, and install them.
