[MPlayer-users] mplayer compilation error

It's just possible that you may have to include the option 
'--disable-shared-pp', that is, disable shared post-processing. It's just a 
guess from the message about postproc. It's also possible that your kernel 
dosn't support the MMX registers in which case compile with the 
'--disable-mmx --disable-mmx2' switches (1 or the other or both).

I doubt it's a GCC problem as I've compiled mplayer under 2.95, 3.2, and 3.4 
without problems.

That's a pretty strong statement.  I'm aware of bugs in 2.96.x
and 3.1 but 3.2?  I don't see anything in the docs about this either.

I'm not disputing you.  I'm only asking if your statement is made
based on a deep understanding and pretty certain knowledge or
just a guess.  (My knowledge about these things is nearly _zero_
other than what I've read.)

I'd love to get the thing compiled so any help will be appreciated.

P.S. To anyone else willing to help me, please see my original
      post on this from last week.  It contains the details of what I did to
      get this error.
