    You might try to update gcc in YAST see what that does.

    Any reason you're trying to compile MPlayer, rather than installing the package from the Packman repository?

    If you don't intend to patch MPlayer, or add something during the compiling process, may I suggest installing MPlayer through YaST? Installing the package through YaST will be much easier than compiling it from the source packages. If you are unsure of how to do this, open YaST and login with the root password and adding the Packman repository (Software Repositories -> Add -> Community Repositories -> Packman -> Next -> Finish -> close Repository Manager). Once you do that, simply following the instructions below to install MPlayer through YaST Package Manager:


    1. Open YaST Package Manager
    2. Enter root password when prompted
    3. Enter "mplayer" into the search field
    4. Select the "MPlayer" package
    5. Click the "Install" button
    6. Click the "Apply" button
    7. Wait for the package to install
    8. Decline to add more packages


    If you wish to install MPlayer from source, try the following:


    1. Open YaST Package Manager
    2. Enter root password when prompted
    3. Click the dropdown labeled "Groups" (or possibly "Search")
    4. Select "Patterns" from this dropdown
    5. Scroll down to the heading "Development"
    6. Select "Base Development"
    7. Click the "Install All" button
    8. Click "Apply"
    9. Wait for the packages to install
    10. Decline to install more packages


    That will install all the base development packages.

    Doing that should eliminate the chance of having development packages missing.

    Hope that works for you!

    The yast software manager can be configured to search for and download from a number of online repositories. Rather than repeating what has already been published many times, have a read of:

    Package Repositories - openSUSE

    Additional YaST Package Repositories - openSUSE

    What Packman refers to is a repository. A repository is a server on which files and programs are added. When you subscribe to a repository through YaST (the package manager for OpenSUSE), you are able to install the application without having to compile it through the terminal. Another advantage is that when there is a newer version available from the repository, you will be alerted on your desktop (through the updater applet on your system tray) or when you view the Upgrades section of YaST Package Manager. For more information on Linux repositories, refer to the following pages...




    The following page is also a good read for new users...




    To add the repository and install MPlayer through YaST, complete the following instructions:

    6. Wait for the repositories to refresh
    7. Once the refresh ends, click the "Add" button
    8. Select "Community Repositories" from the circle-and-dot list
