    i'm still having dependency problems, I tried again to install smpeg-xmms. I got this error message

    checking for XMMS - version >= 1.0.0... no
    *** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
    *** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to xmms-config.
    configure: error: *** XMMS >= 1.0.0 not installed - please install first ***
    [root@localhost smpeg-xmms-0.3.4]#

    I'm pretty positive that i have xmms, since i was playing it yesterday and all, so do i just have really bad luck or is my linux box cursed? I believe that i am still carrying my windows scent and linux can smell it on me and will try to be as problematic as possible.

    BTW, distro is Red Hat 8.0.

    thx

Though when I was around 8 my uncle taught me dir and tree commands for dos... lol
    i'm using MPlayer 0.90rc5-3.2.2 (use mplayer --version to find your version)

    It becomes inoperable? hmm. just run 'mplayer' and look near the bottom of the list. there are a list of keystrokes. like by pressing the right aarow key you can advance ten seconds.

    I think redhat may be at fault again. and not having a copy of redhat handy, i can't install it to find out.

    the most i could help is by telling you that you need the following to install it

    * /sbin/ldconfig
    * /sbin/ldconfig
    * ld64.so.1
    * libSDL-1.1.so.0
    * libX11.so.6
    * libXext.so.6
    * libXi.so.6
    * libartsc.so.0
    * libaudiofile.so.0
    * libc.so.6
    * libdl.so.2
    * libesd.so.0
    * libgdk-1.2.so.0
    * libglib-1.2.so.0
    * libgmodule-1.2.so.0
    * libgthread-1.2.so.0
    * libgtk-1.2.so.0
    * libm.so.6
    * libpthread.so.0
    * libsmpeg-0.4.so.0
    * libxmms.so.1

    I think xmms should have installed most of them.

    Other than that, try running xmms-config and seeing if you get anything like this:
    Code:
    tom@dreamer:~$ xmms-config
    Usage: xmms-config [OPTIONS]
    Options:
        [--prefix[=DIR]]
        [--exec-prefix[=DIR]]
        [--version]
        [--libs]
        [--cflags]
        [--data-dir]
        [--plugin-dir]
        [--visualization-plugin-dir]
        [--input-plugin-dir]
        [--output-plugin-dir]
        [--effect-plugin-dir]
        [--general-plugin-dir]
    if you do, then something has gone wrong with the configure operation. try that, and then we'll take it from there.

    if you don't. try searching your hard drive(s) for xmms-config. if it finds a copy of it that is a binary, copy it over to /usr/bin and make sure its executable by all users. If its allready in /usr/bin, but you get nothing from running xmms-config, then you've got soething seriously wrong. if that happens, i couold only recomend re-installing xmms.
