Hi,

I am running mandrake 10 and am trying to install xmms 1.2.10 instead of the 1.2.9 that comes on the CDs. I have got GT+ and Glib, and can run make. However, when I run make install (as root of course) I get the following message:

libtool: install: error: cannot install `libmpg123.la' to a directory not ending in /usr/lib/xmms/Input
make[3]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/mat/programs/xmms-1.2.10/Input/mpg123'
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/mat/programs/xmms-1.2.10/Input/mpg123'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mat/programs/xmms-1.2.10/Input'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
[root@localhost xmms-1.2.10]#

what can I do? ANy help would be appreciated, aprt from telling me to be satisfied with 1.2.9! I have been trying for ages!

Thanks

As you are installing from the source code.What you should probably do is..
1.Remove existing Xmms.
2.Then while installing from soure code use..."./configure --prefix=/usr/local"
Or try installing to a different location.And tell us if it works.

Hi,

I tried that. I get a nice executable file in /usr/local/bin/lb, and indeed xmms opens, but does not play. The make install command simply comes up with the same error message.

I am going to back up my data and install 10.0.1 anyway. I hope that this will solve the problem.

It all started because my computer does not have an audio cable, becuase Microsoft Media Player does not need it, so manufacturers save pennies by not installing it- I guess I'll stick to totem, which does not use the cable anyway.

thanks for trying.

Mat

You could always get an RPM. Try places like rpm.pbone.net - Or plf.zarb.org

Thnks for your help. Am now using Amorok. Just as good for music. Totem is just as good for movies. I'll live without it!
