    Mplayer Installation Help

    ok i just installed fedora 5. now im trying to get mplayer to work on my machine but the gcc verion is too high and when i compiled it all sorts of errors popped out. so i download gcc-3.4.4-3.I686.rpm. when i tried to install it with rpm -ihv an error popped out: failed dependencies cpp = 3.4.4-3 needed.

    i've looked everywhere for cpp ver 3.4.4-3 to no avail. is there a easier way to install mplayer or does anyone know where i can download cpp-3.4.4-3? any help would be appreciated thank you.

    if you are going to use the rpm of gcc, why don't you just install the rpm of mplayer?

    MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: vo_check_events

    It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
    gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
    DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
    won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

    any idea whats wrong with it? im think it's got something to do with the graphics thing. because mp3 files work fine. just anything having to do with graphical display such as avi files or dvds it displays this error. thx in advance
