suse unsupported gcc??

ok, i have downloaded MPlayer-1.0pre5 extracted it, and in a console window, went to the directory, and typed ./configure i get this error:

Detected operating system: Linux
Detected host architecture: i386
Checking for cc version ... not found
Checking for gcc version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.3 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.2 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.1 version ... not found
Checking for gcc3 version ... not found
Checking for gcc-3.0 version ... not found
Checking for cc version ... not found

*** Please downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or gcc-3.x! ***

You are not using a supported compiler. We do not have the time to make sure
everything works with compilers other than the ones we use. Use either the
same compiler as we do, or use --disable-gcc-checking but DO *NOT* REPORT BUGS
unless you can reproduce them after recompiling with a 2.95.x or 3.x version!

Note for gcc 2.96 users: Some versions of this compiler are known to miscompile
mplayer and lame (which is used for mencoder). If you get compile errors,
first upgrade to the latest 2.96 release (minimum 2.96-85) and try again.
If the problem still exists, try with gcc 3.x (or 2.95.x) *BEFORE* reporting


*** For details please read DOCS/HTML/en/users-vs-dev.html ***

Error: Bad gcc version

Thanks for any help I use suse 9.1 personal.
In yast, if u search for gcc, it shows cpp (gcc processor) or sumthing like that. Is taht an unsuported version of gcc? y cant i install mplayer???

Suse personal won't install compiling tools by default. You can either install gcc and other compiling programs by yourself and/or download a rpm version of mplayer which you can find here:
