    Exclamation Mplayer Won't Install!


    Hi,

    Here's what I'm trying to do: I've got a ton of downloaded AVI's that are off-pitch, so I extracted the audio, fixed the pitch in Audacity using its batch feature, and now just need to re-encode the files with the new audio. Since there's nearly 200 of them, doing this one-at-a-time using something like Vegas is simply not a viable option. Then I read somewhere that mencoder can remove/replace audio and re-encode via command-line, so I decided to go with that.

    First I tried to do it from Windows. Unfortunately, the only Win32 (.exe) version I could find crashes on any XP machine (even a fresh install) when I try to encode any kind of file, so I decided to just do it from a linux machine instead.

    Unfortunately, I can't get it to install! I did configure (output below) and that seemed to go just fine. But when I tried to make (from the main install directory; same place I did ./configure), all I get is the following error (NOTE: I had to replace the the at sign with "(AT)" because apparently this forum software thinks that this symbol automatically must belong to a URL and won't let me post otherwise):

    Code:
    [root(AT)localhost mplayer-r29280]# make
    help/help_create.sh help/help_mp-en.h UTF-8
    make: help/help_create.sh: Command not found
    
    
    Huh?!  I tried Googling this and found absolutely *nothing*!
    
    I'm running a fresh install of RedHat Enterprise 5 in VMware.  What should I do?!  I checked and the file help/help_create.sh IS there!  I'm not a linux expert so I really don't know how to interpret this vague error, let alone how to fix it.
    
    Please help!  Here's the full output from configure plus my subsequent make attempt:

    'config.h' and 'config.mak' contain your configuration options.
    Note: If you alter theses files (for instance CFLAGS) MPlayer may no longer
          compile *** DO NOT REPORT BUGS if you tweak these files ***
    
    'make' will now compile MPlayer and 'make install' will install it.
    Note: On non-Linux systems you might need to use 'gmake' instead of 'make'.
    
    Please check mtrr settings at /proc/mtrr (see DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#mtrr)
    
    Check configure.log if you wonder why an autodetection failed (make sure
    development headers/packages are installed).
    
    NOTE: The --enable-* parameters unconditionally force options on, completely
    skipping autodetection. This behavior is unlike what you may be used to from
    autoconf-based configure scripts that can decide to override you. This greater
    level of control comes at a price. You may have to provide the correct compiler
    and linker flags yourself.
    If you used one of these options (except --enable-gui and similar ones that
    turn on internal features) and experience a compilation or linking failure,
    make sure you have passed the necessary compiler/linker flags to configure.
    
    If you suspect a bug, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

    Hello and Welcome.
    Why don't you install Mplayer from your system repos or download a version that's already precompiled for you?
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I don't know what "system repos" means so I can't answer that question. Like I said, I'm not a Linux expert.

    As for your second question, as I stated in my post, that was the first thing I tried. It was a Windows binary directly from the developer's website. Unfortunately, it crashed on every XP system I tried it on. That's why I decided to just compile it fresh in Linux instead.

    I have installed other programs in Linux before (including a few of my own) and never encountered this vague error. There has to be somebody out there who would know how to shed some light on this for me.

    System repos=your distribution's online repository of software.

    Package management system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    RPM Package Manager - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are various package management tools, both graphical and from the command line, provided by different distros. In RHEL5, the command line manager is yum.

    Assuming your distro provides the package, you can just do
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install mplayer'
    to download and install.

    However, I think RHEL does not have mplayer available. It's not really a multimedia oriented distro. But other people have put together unofficial repositories of software for RHEL, and it is available through them.

    Here is a guide to enabling the DAG repository, which has the software you're looking for.

    That was helpful, but I got the following errors when I tried to install mplayer with yum:

    Error: Missing Dependency: libungif.so.4 is needed by package mplayer
    Error: Missing Dependency: libartsc.so.0 is needed by package mplayer
    Error: Missing Dependency: libgif.so.4 is needed by package mplayer
    Error: Missing Dependency: libfribidi.so.0 is needed by package mplayer
    Error: Missing Dependency: libartsc.so.0 is needed by package openal


    I tried installing those with yum but it said they're not found. What should I do?

    This is crazy!! I installed libungif and it still shows up as a missing dependency! I couldn't install libartsc because it had missing dependencies, and its dependencies wouldn't install because they had missing dependencies. I'd have to spend weeks on Google trying to find all these missing RPM's!

    WTF am I supposed to do?! This is so FRUSTRATING!!

    I would strongly suggest getting rid of RHEL and go with something like Fedora or LinuxMint.

    Isn't there a way to make this work without reformatting and downloading an entirely different operating system??

    RHEL = RedHat *ENTERPRISE* Linux

    This is not Windows - an ENTERPRISE Linux distro is built for server usage. It will not come with nice desktop applications like audio/video players. You don't take a server OS (like say, AIX) and decide "I'd like to put this on my desktop and play movies with it."

    Unless you have the time/inclination to understand Linux and how you'll have to change RHEL to do what you're trying to do, you will have less headache with a desktop distribution.

    With all due respect, please don't reply to my thread if you're not even gonna bother to read it. And especially if you're not going to try to help.

    If you had bothered to read my post, you'd know that I'm NOT using this to "play movies with it." I don't even have any interest in mplayer. I'm only installing it so I can use MENCODER! You know, that program that lets you re-encode video files. I have hundreds of video files I need to re-encode over an extended period of time, and am planning to create a server batch (and possibly a cronjob for regular conversion of new files) to facilitate this.

    So doing this in a SERVER environment seemed (and still does seem) the most logical approach. It's also worth noting that I originally did try this on Windows (also stated in my original post, hence why it seems obvious that you didn't read it), but quickly learned that it's just too unstable to handle this operation.


    So again, if you're just going to judge me without even reading my post, then please don't hijack my own thread in order to do it. I was under the impression that this forum is newbie-friendly, despite the hostility in your post.

    I'm posting here so that I can learn how to change RHEL to make this work, just as you suggested. I'm not posting this just so you can belittle me for not being as knowledgeable about RHEL as you. If you have something constructive to suggest, I'd be happy to hear it, but please read (and pay attention to) my post first before commenting on how stupid I seem to you.


    To everyone else, can somebody please help me with this?? Reed9, if you're still there, your suggestion seems the most promising, but I couldn't get it to work because of missing dependencies and I don't know how to get past that.
