Fair enough. I was going to include a bit more, but sent the message in
haste more as 'fyi' than a 'help me'.
I'm beginning to think I sent to the wrong list. But, I don't see
another list to post to. Hmm.
Reading http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html I just
don't see a definition of a proper description. I'll try harder, then:
I installed MPlayer from CVS this morning, got the error (again at
bottom), re-installed to the previous release as I'd mentioned. I
thought, since I'd gotten some help from the list about these realaudio
streams that don't play, I'd at least check out the CVS and see what
happened when I built it. And I posted what happened... really, that's
all there was. Work was slow this morning.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to report all the info you may want.
I'd've liked to tell you what 'kernel' I'm using but didn't know how...
Linux version 2.4.20-8 (bhcompile at porky.devel.redhat.com) (gcc version
3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)) #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003
Now I do. Does that help? More about gcc:
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/specs
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix
--disable-checking --with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)
... but, then, it compiled without a sqwawk...
pkg-config --modversion alsa
What else can I provide? Is there some flag I can set where I run
mplayer and it gives more helful info than it did?

Right. It's not a problem but a report of the install from CVS, which I
just undid immediately thereafter.
It had nothing to do with the info about the stream, it's just all there
was to post.
>Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.
>Audio: no sound
>Video: no video
This was the unexpected error.
Now, if I missed some big, obvious thing, let me know. I did only what I
said. Installed from CVS. Tried new mplayer. No joy. Reinstalled old
MPLayer. So, something is broken, somewhere. Either in the post-install
instructions (are there post-install instructions?) or in the new code.
Or somewhere else, but, I'm not in a position to go hunting it down
unless someone helps me provide the proper descriptions. I'm not sure
yet as to all of what is involved.
However, I'd _like_ to help someone else figure it out, if it helps the
development overall. Is this unreasonable? I haven't followed the list
long enough to judge.
