I just installed Linux and am trying to install DRI drivers/Wine... I got to a point where it said check and see if some things are visiible when u type glxinfo, but all i get when i type glxinfo is:

name of display: :0.0

visual x bf lv rg d st colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer ms cav
id dep cl sp sz l ci b ro r g b a bf th cl r g b a ns b eat
----------------------------------------------------------------------
0x21 16 tc 0 0 0 c . . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None
0x22 16 dc 0 0 0 c . . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None

Does glxgears work (type glxgears at the terminal prompt)? If it does, GLX works. I don't know how glxinfo works, sorry.

For mplayer configure, maybe I'm not getting what you're saying. Are you typing:

./configure
make
make install

as root for all three (or at least the last one)?

And not getting any errors at all? The easiest way to check this is to do this
./configure &> configure_output
then do:
grep "***" configure_output
(The backslashes are necessary). Any lines that are output will contain three stars. These lines are errors - the making is failing because of them.

Similar for the rest:
make &> makelog
grep "***" makelog
make install &> makeinstalllog
grep "***" makeinstalllog

Another thing you might want to do is change configure to be:
./configure --prefix=/usr
then the files won't be installed in /usr/local, but instead in /usr. This would be, for logging, as
./configure --prefix=/usr &> configure_output
grep "***" configure_output

If all this works and you still cant find anything try:
updatedb
then:
locate mplayer

That'll output the locations of any files that have mplayer in their filename.
