The problem was Incompatible libXext in amd64 FC3 with mplayer. It is
not missing X11. the subject is misleading. After some investigation,
I confirmed that.
Let me thank Alexander again for his reply.
I found out the issue from the following investigation:
Do a YUM update with my FC3 installation, I got more than 300 packages
+ all xorg-x11 amd64 rpm packages. I also noticed the packages
including non 64bit version - i386.
YUM did an installation at the end with a completion station.
After the installation, I started to re-do .cofigure. I got the same
error: "Incompatible Xext lib". The Xext was newly compiled at Nov
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Nov 20 23:02 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Nov 20 23:00
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 -> libXext.so.6.4
I went to my P4 stations, where I got a copy of FC3, did the
installation of mplayer. the configure has not issue and the
installation went well.
Well now I could only watch my famous movie "mansfield park" at my P4
4xAGP station, but not at my amd64 8xAGP station.... :(

The .so files, only needed at compile time, are (nearly) always in the
-devel package. Did you install both the i386 and the x88_64 (32bit and

Answered: the devel RPMs hold these files.

That may be the problem.

Can't say, I don't run a 64bit system. Btw. there is an own mailing list
for this platform.
