total newbie HELP!!!!!!!!!!
I am a total newbie to the linux os and i need help with the installation of programs.
I have tried numerous times to install the tar.gz files and i cannot figure out what is going on ... i have made it as far as the make command and after that i cannot go any further because i keep getting error messages. Please help me out here.
The program i really want to install is xmms because i need a media player that can play aac files but in the shell when i try to install it i am told i need to install glib and gettext. When i try to install these i keep getting error messages in the shell at the make or make install command. Can someone please help me install these programs ?
