downloaded xine player from www.xinehq.de

xine player will also play wma avi...


The problem I am having is installation part...


I unpacked xine but during ./configure, the terminal generated an error.

It returned, missing gcc compiler.

Can somebody help me know how I can get past this "./configure"


I am on Gnome.


:'( Is it a problem with the software(xine) I downloaded?


Thank you
Bugg

Create your own thread instead of hijacking someone else's.

Regarding the problem, you need to have a compiler installed before you can convert the source code into a binary. It's way easier if you get a binary, avoiding the need to compile it. This link has third-party sites that offer binaries of xine:
http://xinehq.de/index.php/releases#binaries

Or if you have Ubuntu/Debian (which I assume you don't, since you're posting in a SuSE thread), all you have to run is a couple of commands:

# apt-get install xine-ui
# aptitude install gxine
