    I have tried install mplayer in suse 9.1, and i got this

    *** Please downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or gcc-3.x! ***

    You are not using a supported compiler. We do not have the time to make sure
    everything works with compilers other than the ones we use. Use either the
    same compiler as we do, or use --disable-gcc-checking but DO *NOT* REPORT BUGS
    unless you can reproduce them after recompiling with a 2.95.x or 3.x version!

    Note for gcc 2.96 users: Some versions of this compiler are known to miscompile
    mplayer and lame (which is used for mencoder). If you get compile errors,
    first upgrade to the latest 2.96 release (minimum 2.96-85) and try again.
    If the problem still exists, try with gcc 3.x (or 2.95.x) *BEFORE* reporting


    *** For details please read DOCS/HTML/en/users-vs-dev.html ***

    Error: Bad gcc version

    Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

    ************************************************** *************

    ok... I downloaded gcc3.0, because i have not found 2.96 version, but i have a problem installing the compiler:

    Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
    Created "Makefile" in /home/allan/Programas/gcc-3.0 using "mt-frag"
    ./configure: line 7: cc: command not found
    *** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
    *** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

    ok... i'm just new in linux and i don't know wich is the next step

    there are rpms of gcc available for SUSE, from or you could find one via a google search. Advantage is that you don't need to compile gcc as you are trying to do now.

    Or the other thing you can do is install gcc which came on the SUSE 9.1 install media, then upgrade to gcc 3.x series via compilation.

    IMO the easiest way would be just to download an rpm of gcc 3.x and use that to compile mplayer.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
