Unhappy Problems compiling xine


Hi,

I am trying install xine onto my new install of Fedora Core 3. Im quite new to linux so please be patient wih me.

Ok here goes.

I downloaded xine-lib-1.0.tar.gz and then decompressed it using:
tar -zxvf xine-lib-1.0.tar.gz
cd xine-lib-1.0

then i ran configure and all seem to go well untill it ended with this:

checking if gcc supports "-fbranch-probabilities" flags... yes
checking for sane -Wpointer-arith... no
checking if gcc supports "-Wall" flags... yes
checking __attribute__ ((aligned ())) support... 64
checking if gcc supports "-mtune=i386" flags... yes
checking if gcc supports "-mtune=athlon" flags... yes
checking for sgmltools... no
checking for fig2dev... no
checking dependency style of ... none
configure: error: conditional "HAVE_XV" was never defined.
Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally.

I have tried searching google but cant find anything to help other than a reference to a file called libXv.so and that i can get this as an rpm but i have searched and cant find this file or how to install it.

I have tried re-downloading the file but it does the same thing.

Any help sorting this would be great apreciated as since moving over to linux I havent been able to play any movies.

Also does xine play divx?

Cheers

David-Allan

i'd assume it implies you've not got xfree86-devel or xorg-x11-devel installed (depending on which you run).

and yes it can play divx. but not as well as mplayer.

I'm not sure if I have or dont have.

How would I check?

i'm using gnome just now but have recently installed kde. Dont know if this is relevant.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

i've already told you what i think it causing it. it won't hurt to just reinstall the packages if they're already installed. but on redhat, try
Code:
rpm -qa | grep XFree86
and see if a -devel package is listed. if not, install it from your CD's.
