Slackware MPlayer Setup

Filed under: General Linux,Linux Software,The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 12:03 am on Tuesday, December 4, 2007

I’ve updated the MPlayer Installer and uploaded it.

Instructions:

1. Download The MPlayer Installer that I made (Right click Save Link As).

2. Change to root user and run the MPlayer Installer OR run the MPlayer Installer with sudo as followed:

bash-3.1$ su root
 
Password:
 
bash-3.1# sh mplayer_setup.sh

OR

sudo sh mplayer_setup.sh

Changes to this version:
mplayer-1.0rc1try3-i486-2kjz.tgz is now being used as mplayer-1.0rc1-i486-1goa.tgz is no longer available.
Instead of using the essential codecs pack I am now using the all-20071007.tar.bz2 package. This includes so many more codecs. Even apple.com trailers work for me now.
A bunch of dependencies / libraries are now being downloaded and installed here is the list:

a52dec-0.7.4-i486-1kjz.tgz
libmpcdec-1.2.6-i486-1gds.tgz
libmpeg3-1.7-i486-1gds.tgz
avifile-20071003-i486-1gds.tgz
mpeg2dec-0.4.1-i486-1gds.tgz
faac-1.25-i486-1gds.tgz
faad2-2.6.1-i486-1wim.tgz
speex-1.2beta2-i486-1kjz.tgz
ffmpeg-20070622-i486-1kjz.tgz
twolame-0.3.10-i486-1kjz.tgz
jack-0.103.0-i486-1kjz.tgz
x264-20070722-i686-1mfb.tgz
lame-3.97-i486-1kjz.tgz
xmms-1.2.11-i486-1McD.tgz
libdv-1.0.0-i486-1gds.tgz
xvidcore-1.1.3-i486-1kjz.tgz
mplayerplug-in-3.45-i486-1kjz.tgz
libdc1394-1.2.2-i486-1gds.tgz

Notes:
The following error is caused because samba is not installed:

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libsmbclient.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If you run into any other problems, as always you can e-mail me (owen @ thelinuxblog.com) for help.
Because of all the changes the line by line breakdown of the installer from: Slackware 12 – MPlayer Setup in 3 Easy Steps post is no longer accurate.

Glad it worked out for you. What version of Vector are you using?

very good script. Thank you.

works like a charm for slackware 10.0. Resolved my issue after entangled with some errors with “make”.
