    I think your clock is wrong..

    try date

    and if you want to set the clock, use a gui thingy (like in windows) or do man date
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    Looks to me like your system clock is off by four years, if it's reporting the date as 2000-04-15. You can fix this by syncing your clock with a remote one that is pretty much guaranteed to be correct by using the following command:

    rdate -s clock.psu.edu

    Of course, you need to be connected to the Internet at the time to run this command successfully. If you don't have a connection to the net, try using the date command as follows:

    date MMDDhhmmCCYY

    Where:
    MM = month (e.g. 04 for April)
    DD = day (e.g. 15 for the 15th)
    hh = hours (24 hour clock, so 13 = 1pm)
    mm = minutes (e.g. 30 for half past)
    CC = century (you'll want 20 here)
    YY = year (you'll want 04 here)

    Try again after running one of these commands and it should hopefully work. If not, let me know and I'll have another stab at it.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, you'll need to be logged in as root (or su to it) in order to change the system date/time.

    What do you get as the output of the date command?

    If your clock is correct, you can fix this error by using touch. Type touch Makefile in the same directory as the source for mplayer. If your clock is wrong though, you'll have to touch all the source files which will be a bit more effort that fixing your clock...

    you made an empty makefile

    the file you want is Makefile (note in linux and most unixes these are different files (not in win))

    so:
    rm makefile
    touch Makefile


    and remember the CaSe sensetivity of unix filesystems

    Why didn't anyone suggest checking the BIOS date/time since that is where it pulls that information?
