    Make is part of a whole collection of tools for compiling things in general on linux. Everything you need almost guarenteed does come with the OS, but if you selected a default installation, they didn't get installed. Just use whatever package manager you can, and install the developer stuff- the tools and the headers. It really shouldn't be that hard.

    The site has links to RPMs... I'm suprised you didn't see them. However, as of yesterday, an important security update was released, and they apparently haven't updated the RPM page yet, so you'll want to recompile anyways.

    What do I do when I have installed every possible selection from the package manager, making double sure I installed all of the developer parts, and it still says that make is invalid?

    I'm a newb to linux, but I got make at

    Just search for 'make' and then pick the appropriate version.

    There are rpms there for mplayer also.
