MPlayer installation error


Hi,
I cannot compile successfully MPlayer. Here is make log.


In file included from /usr/include/asm/byteorder.h:63,

/usr/include/linux/byteorder.h:8:3: error: #error Fix asm/byteorder.h to define one endianness
make: *** [stream/stream_vcd.o] Error 1


I checked my asm/byteorder.h and found that one endianness already defined

Strange... what distro and kernel version are you trying to compile on?

Is it a 64bit system?

Which gcc version are you using? (To find out, type gcc -v in a terminal)

I've managed to compile the current MPlayer successfully on various older Fedora kernels (starting from FC6) - this includes 2.6.18.1 (FC9) and the FC11 and FC10 kernels, with both GCC 3 and GCC 4 - on both AMD and Intel CPUs.

I'm guessing you are trying to compile on a 64bit system?

In general, when posting, always state at least what kernel and distro you are using, or include this in your sig. This helps in evaluating whether to answer, since ppl can see what you are using.

Also, have you tried installing MPlayer via your distro's package manager, instead of compiling from source? That can sometimes be tricky, but just installing a package is usually easy - especially if you are new or just starting out. Later, when you need more precise control (and you also have more experience) you might want to try compiling your apps yourself.

Regards,

Thank for you advice & I'll remember that. Also, I have some experience

You are COMPILING MPlayer on Fedora 10? yum install mplayer mplayer-gui and to launch it type gmplayer, although it should show in the menus. I use nothing but MPlayer, and the thought of compiling never crossed my mind.

it dose build but i have not done that since fedora 8
install rpmfusion then gmplayer from yum .
see:
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...l#mediaplayers
or make your life easier and use DM's autoten
http://www.dnmouse.org/autoten.html

also fedora 10 will hit it's " End of Life " in about 60 days . I would install fedora 11 or in about 30 days install fedora 12 .

Updates will stop, but the repositories will keep running, hell, FC7 still works in YUM.
I still use Fedora 10 on my desktop, and I see no reason to go through the bandwidth of upgrading, and I have about 80GBs worth of data I cannot back up. (I do not have a medium large enough) so a clean install is out of the picture. If I see reason to upgrade, I will do it with preupgrade. I already did a upgrade from FC9 to FC10.

You still should have used the repo. It's much easier.

If you do use a repository, what can you do to get a library or feature in MPlayer that the packager of the .rpm you eventually get did not include?

Is there a way to get, for example, lirc functionality without recompiling MPlayer yourself locally? (Besides of course trying to find somebody who has .rpm'ed the specific type of MPlayer binary you want...)

Ok, have you tried a different version of MPlayer than the one you are trying to compile now? I seem to remember once having problems getting it to compile on GCC 4 with an older version of MPlayer - getting the latest source tarball (at that time) solved the compile issue.

Hmm - the error says "Fix asm/byteorder.h to define ONE endianness" - how about putting

#define CONFIG_X86_BSWAP

at the top of the byteorder file?

How about if you post the contents of your

Code:
#include <linux/byteorder.h>
as well?

from source ??

well What version of mplayer is it ?
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html
from here - svn - or an older version ?
Code:
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
and do you have the 1/2 million prerequisites installed ( there are a lot of them )
