Mplayer needs libmad.so.0


Hey.... I'm trying to install Mplayer on SUSE linux 9.3.... I have the source and the rpm for it. The source tells me that I need the GTK developers packages, which I dont know where to get those from... and the rpm wont install because it needs codecs, namely libmad.so.0 among a few others that I may or may not have installed yet.. I checked and I'm pretty sure I have libmad installed already, so what do I do? I think I have to link it somehow to get Mplayer to see it?? Any help is greatly appreciated!

add this site to sources
http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/9.3/
and run yast=>install softwares=>search=>mplayer
You'll install mplayer with all necessary dependencies.

whenever you install packages with YaST, if you want it to resolve the dependency issue, then simply select autocheck before pressing "Apply"

One note...

One minor tweak for SUSE:

On my SUSE 10.0 installation, I had to set up packman as an ftp source. It just wouldn't set up properly as an installation source in http mode.

But works fine for me too, so thanks! Now if I could just get the dang volume widget in GNOME to actually change the volume...

I have SuSE linux 10, & am trying to install MPlayer without much luck.

I got the file from the top of this list. When I try to install it it says I don't have ;

libmad.so.0

libmp3lame.so.0

Does anyone know where I can locate these elusive little critters? Or perhaps other suggestions?

Thanks;
Bill

Don't install mplayer to SuSE 10.0.
It works great without it. All you need are codecs from this Packman source.
in the search field type:
xine=>Update xine, kaffeine.
amarok=> Update amarok
xmms=> Update xmms
w32codec, divx, xvid=>select to install=>Finish

Logout. Login

I went onto YAST, then copied & pasted;

xine=>Update xine, kaffeine.
amarok=> Update amarok
amarok=> Update amarok

then selected Accept, logging ou + in.

I also already have installed;
W32 codec-all Win32 and other Codecs 29.8MB


The only thing I can play is rm files. Kaffenine is still completely useless.

When you have these three: w32codec, divx, xvid
then your Xine player plays even a kitchen sink

P.S. : I know that mine does!

Xine is even worse than Kaffene. It won't even open, it just says "There is no mrl". At least Kaffenie will open then not work.

Patience is a virtue

Again. Add this site to sources:
http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/10.0
Disable source of CD/DVD
Start Software Management and update xine and kaffeine

I put that in as an http in the sources, I tried about four different ways of putting the url in. All failed. I got a copy og SuSE 9.2 PRO last winter & tried for days to get a video player to work. I just gave up. I am beginning to think this is hopeless.
