MPlayer Installation Problem

I'm using Mandriva 2006.

I tried installing mplayer with gui but i was unable to. I managed to get it installed without gui. But I want to have gui now.

What do I do?

Here is the error when I type "./configure --enable-gui" when i want to compile mplayer:

Checking for GTK+ version ... GTK-2 devel packages were not found, trying GTK 1.2
Checking for GTK version ...
Error: The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

Ok so that means I need GTK-2 Devel packages. Where do I get them from and what dependicies do I need. Please help.

Why do you wan to install it from source?
Anyway visit, setup your sources, use the software installer to install programs. You can install mplayer from there too.
