Slackware 14.1 - Unable to recompile MPlayer


Hi, I am having trouble recompiling the MPlayer package.
Using Slackware source tree I downloaded the script made by Pat.
Unfortunately, it gives the error described in this IRC talk.

Any suggestion?

ffmpeg is such a mess. The API should have been frozen a long time ago- or at least no changes between minor versions.

You need ffmpeg from MPlayer:
Quote:
git clone git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg
ps: It is just to build MPlayer: "Extract the ffmpeg source inside the MPlayer directory". Don't install this version on your system, K?

I built MPlayer svn trunk with ffmpeg git-master yesterday and it built just fine. I wasn't using the slackware script however, just doing the basic configure, make, make install dance.
