Well , from the looks of your .mplayer directory...
That build was my first attempt at mplayer..
I recognize my callsign (name) in the folder.
I quickly removed that afterwards in the next build...
You should usually download the latest builds from
the repository.. Many have improved, shrunk in size,
had file permissions corrected, and themes/styles added.
Fortunately, I have not made a lot of big changes to the dsl
since it's first creation, so re-download it, and install it again.
It won't make things any worse, but it may fix a problem with
permissons. An "illegal instructon" may be a corrupted file.
DSL extensions have only been in existance for a about 30-45 days,
so it's a new concept, and should be handled with care.
Most all of these extensions have been donated by contributors,
and are still in need of further testing and feedback.
My first extensions were never tested in a HDinstall
environment, because the first few extensions were made to
replace constant downloading of dpkg, gnu-utils, etc.,
by LiveCD users...
They were originally another way to install these packages
without downloading every time you boot. from LiveCD.
The HDinstall users never had a problem, just apt-get install.
Who'd guess that they would become so popular!!
