vmware, apache, mplayer under kubuntu dapper [beta]

I follow this guide by Stoltenow, and it works for me.

apache2+kubuntu=SUCK!. I expect directory public_html in my home directory will be in apache DocumentRoot [like Suse and FreeBSD], but it not as expected. Have to edit the apache2.conf manually.

No mplayer in kubuntu dapper[beta]! Had uncomment /etc/apt/sources.list for universe and multiverse, but still no mplayer after `sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; apt-cache search --names-only mplayer`. Also had add `deb http://honk.sigxcpu.org/linux-ppc/debian/ mplayer/` in /etc/apt/sources, still no mplayer. I try the hard way, but the video don't want to come out.
VDec: vo config request - 208 x 170 (preferred csp: Planar YV12)
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.

FATAL: Could not initialize video filters (-vf) or video output (-vo).

Can't restore text mode: Invalid argument

Hey! the mplayer Makefile don't want me to uninstall mplayer.

make uninstall
/bin/sh: -c: line 6: syntax error: unexpected end of file
make: *** [uninstall] Error 2

Conclusion, my VMware Workstation 5.5.1 build-19175 works! (apache or mplayer)+kubuntu dapper[beta]=SUCK!

Kubuntu? What happen to FreeBSD?
FreeBSD is retired from my harddisk. Sayonara...

Hmm, a lot of distro doesn't want to include mplayer due to the codec violations. On my debian, i had to add an unofficial src for mplayer alone to make apt-get find all the mplayer related binaries. I'm sure there is a similar way with kubuntu or ubuntu.

Anyway, good luck.

Apache website had provide an article howto setup per-user web directories.

How I setup in my kubuntu dapper:
sudo ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/userdir.conf
sudo ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/userdir.load

I read somewhere that apache2 disable UserDir by default. Sorry just close the tab, so google yourself
