Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.
I have added a small checkinstall section to the guide and I would be interested to hear any comments about it. I am not such big fan of checkinstall but I acknowledge that it has a place in putting MPlayer within the package management system of Ubuntu and allowing the installation of such programs as smplayer, the MPlayer plugin etc without overwriting the svn files with the older repository MPlayer.
In particular I am not all that happy with the requirement for the '--fstrans=no' option which has been an issue with checkinstall for a long time now but seems to have only bitten Ubuntu with some force since Intrepid Ibex.
Anyway a checkinstall section is in place now as an option.

You think that's air you're breathing now?
