    how to compile gmplayer for rh9

    I have installed mplayer, using the rh9 packages, however the documentation says nothing about how to install the gui version (gmplayer) there are some command options but nothing for rh9 packages. I assumed it was already included in the packages but when i run the command: whereis gmplayer i find nothing. anyone there that can help me? also, for those familiar with mplayer, how do i get it to start-up and stay on the lower left hand corner of my screen? i was able to change the size of the display, but it run in the center of the screen, i am able to move it but when it plays the next mpg file on the playlist it goes back to the center of the screen.

    seems to me as if you have not installed mplayer-gui package

    visit this site :

    this site has everything you need to have a complete MPlayer, btw, the new version has NO separate mplayer-gui package, both the cmd line mplayer and gui mplayer ( or gmplayer ) have been packaged in the mplayer package.
