Like Linux Hate the issues..Please Help, MPlayer,Flash, Other Nebie issues


Hello Everyone,
I have a small list of issues that I need to get working. I like slackware but it seems that when ever I try to install anything I just errors out. I am installing as root, example is MPlayer, Errors out, I get it configured and then when I try to make it I get the following error:

In file included from mplayer.c:4:
/usr/include/stdlib.h:776: parse error before '*' token
/usr/include/stdlib.h:780: parse error before "wchar_t"
/usr/include/stdlib.h:784: parse error before '*' token
/usr/include/stdlib.h:788: parse error before '*' token
mplayer.c: In function `main':
mplayer.c:722: warning: passing arg 2 of `m_config_register_options' from incompatible pointer type
make: *** [mplayer.o] Error 1
root@rich:/home/powerismine/MPlayer-0.90#

Okay now I am also having issues with CD-Burning, I need to find software that will convert MP3 to CDA like nero does, I don't want to have to convert it manually(maybe I should get into programing ). I have tried to use other programs in the past with Slackware 8.1 but I would like to not worry about what program to use. I Primarily make Data (mp3) CD's and Audio CD's. Nautilus thinks that my plextor 16x10x40 is only a 1x burner. I have not installed any other programs for burning, I have to use my brothers WinXP machine.

Yet another issue, Printing to an XP Printer. I want to be able to print to a HP PSC 750 via network. I have figured out samba kinda, enough were he can listen to all my music with no write permissions. But i can't seem to figure out how to print to his printer, I tired to do the KDE Printer setup but that was NFG.

Okay that last thing that I can think of is that I can't use launch.com and can't get Flash 6 to install. Again Errors. Error listed below:

root@rich:/downloads/install_flash_player_6_linux# ./flashplayer-installer
./flashplayer-installer: line 76: [: 8): integer expression expected

ERROR: Your glibc library is older than 2.2.
Please update your glibc library.

root@rich:/downloads/install_flash_player_6_linux#


How do I update my GLIBC??


Thanks Ahead of time.

Rich

first... while I haven't tried making a music cd with it yet have you checked out xcdroast? It has been great for burning data CDs.

http://www.xcdroast.org

second... to install flash simply copy the libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt to mozilla's plugin directory.

As for the stdlib error... I'm not sure... (I don't use Slackware 9.0) could it be that development libraries weren't installed when you installed slackware?

once the files are moved to the plugin directory (just libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt files) the install is done. that's all their stupid installer does.

if you want the write acces to samba, What I do is that I mount my music share somewhere (like /mnt/share) and I give the option user=myself (change the user and look at the manual)

with my slack 8.1, I use k3b to burn cd's.... really sweet.

I would be carefull if you want to change your glibc... you might have to recompile everything.

for your flash thing, you might need to to check in your preferences and reload (or load) your plugins.

see ya

powerismine: if you're still reading this I just looked over xcdroast's documentation and burning an audio cd is possible (but looks to be a pain in the @$$). First you convert the mp3 to wav, then to stereo quality wav, then you burn.

there's gotta be something better out there.

Here is a script that I use to convert a batch of mp3's to wav. I then run them against normalize because I got tired of futzing with the volume levels. It wasn't that hard to write.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

#This file will prepare all the .mp3 file in cd/ to normalized .wav


echo ""
echo -e "***********  Removing white space from .mp3 file names  *********** \n"

for i in *.mp3
   do
      mv "$i" `echo $i | tr ' ' '_'`
   done

ls -1

echo ""
echo -e "***********       Converting .mp3 files to .wav         *********** \n"
for i in *.mp3
   do
      mpg123 -w `basename $i .mp3`.wav $i
   done

ls -1 *.wav

echo ""
echo -e "***********         Normalizing .wav files              *********** \n"

normalize -m *.wav

echo ""
echo -e "***********           Deleting .mp3 files               *********** \n"

rm *.mp3

THANKS

I am going to see what I can do. I do not have alot of time on my hands and I know learning this takes time. I am going to see what I can do.

Thanks to everyone on these post for helping all the newbies out. I can't wait to be able to help people with stuff myself.

Thanks again and I am sure we will be chatting again soon.
