Does ./configure provide any clues ?

I just downloaded mplayer and ran ./configure and make without a problem on F8 x86_64

Mplayer svn compiles fine for me in Fedora 9. It's in my repo (ftp://ftp.brebs.me.uk/fedora/9/).

if you can see red lights, that is a problem i guess.

basically, my choice of players is VLC (http://www.ilovetux.com/2007/07/vlc-media-player-install-howto.html) , suits for me though

there isn't anything like that..any other suggestion

am not sure how you are posting here since you do not have any internet connection.

if you do have, simply

# yum update mplayer*

The i386 and i686 shouldn't be an issue. The i386 is the basic generic version.

Has anyone suggested that you add the livna repo and install it via yum? (I don't see that specifically mentioned, only a mention that you do yum install mplayer.)

It is in the livna repos and has worked for me on a 32 bit and 64 bit machine.

Transfer the RPM files using a recordable CD or USB stick. Then use e.g.:

yum --nogpgcheck localinstall mplayer-blahblah.rpm
