Installing Xine


Hello

Trying to configure Xine-Lib-1-rc7 on Mandrake 10.0 Official...

So I type configure and it goes on for a while then I get this.....



checking for g++... no
checking for c++... no
checking for gpp... no
checking for aCC... no
checking for CC... no
checking for cxx... no
checking for cc++... no
checking for cl... no
checking for FCC... no
checking for KCC... no
checking for RCC... no
checking for xlC_r... no
checking for xlC... no
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.


Any ideas what I need...

Cheers

You need to install the gcc (Gnu C compiler). Basically, you are trying to compile a program without the compiler. Install it from your Mandrake CD's, then re-run the ./configure. There will be more a hell lot of dependencies until you have Xine up and running (if you are lucky). A little suggestion, try learning how to use urpmi:

http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

it will make your life much easier. E.g:, if you type "urpmi xine" at the console, as root, urpmi will download and install xine and all it's dependencies for you. It works very well.

Good luck!

Ok...A little more progress..I did xine on urpmi, and it seemed to go ok, I also got Kaffeine off of urpmi, it installed and that appeared to go ok, I found kaffeine in /usr/bin I made a link to it on my desktop, when i try and open, it just stays at starting Kaffeine, and thn nothing happens?

No idea, sorry . Try running kaffeine from the console though, it usually gives a better output of error messages. Also, if there's not an specific reason to use Xine (unless you want/need DVD menus) mplayer is a much better alternative...

And when you are not sure about if an rpm is or not installed, use:

rpm -qa | grep gcc

at the console, for example.

That gives me

gcc-3.4.1-4mdk
gcc-cpp-3.4.1-4mdk
gcc2.96-cpp-2.96-0.83mdk


So GCC is cleary installed...

This is what kaffiene from console gives me ....

./kaffeine: Symbol `_ZTI18KUniqueApplication' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
./kaffeine: Symbol `_ZTI9KComboBox' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
./kaffeine: Symbol `_ZTI7QWidget' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
./kaffeine: Symbol `_ZTIN6KParts4PartE' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
./kaffeine: Symbol `_ZTI11KMainWindow' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
Main: XInitThreads()
kaffeine: relocation error: kaffeine: undefined symbol: _ZN11KMainWindow7setIconERK7QPixmap
ERROR: Communication problem with kaffeine, it probably crashed.

A bit mysterious...?

I'd say very mysterious . Not really sure... gcc is version 3+ (which is current) while gpp (the GNU c++ compiler) is 2+, which is really old.

If I was you, I'd try this. But you may want to wait for somebody else post with another thought before trying and screwing everything up . Fire up Mandrake Control Center and remove all gcc, g++ packages you've there and install them again, from your CD's or from Mandrake's ftp. Get matching versions as g++ 3+ and gcc 3+. Run again ./configure and see what happens.

Odd with Kaffeine though. You may need to try another GUI for xine. I still think that mplayer through urpmi is a better shot though .

This is a GNU advice, meaning it comes with no guaranty whatsoever, use it at your own risk

Right thanks for the help...

I got mplayer, and it works through the console, /usr/bin/mplayer

But, if i click that nothing happens, do i need to installer a seperate GUI?

Cheers

Maybe the gui is already installed. Try typing "gmplayer" at the console to see if that works.

Can't?. Odd. Not sure how to install the gui through urpmi, but try "urpmi mplayer-gui" or "urpmi gmplayer".

That's great . I hope it will work and most important, that you will like mplayer. The only thing it lacks is a descent DVD-menu. Other then that, it's an awesome player, ported to a hole lot of systems out there as Xbox (works amazingly), FreeBSD and even Win32 itself. It supports an incredible number of codecs and can play a lot of known formats as DivX, mpeg, avi, mov, mp3, ogg as well as VCD's and DVD's . It also comes with memcoder, so you can create/edit your own videos (never done that though)

You are welcome . I'm glad it works. About the MPEG-4 ACC codec, I'm not sure. I always compiled mplayer from source (it compiles surprisingly easy) and I usually install the package codecs-all they have at their homepage. Not sure is ACC comes too though . Sorry...
