retitle 524953 incorrect location for mplayer.conf inside the comment
severity normal

True, but:

>> strace -e open mplayer >/dev/null 2>&1 | grep mplayer.conf
open("/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3
open("/home/siretart/.mplayer/config", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_EXCL|O_LARGEFILE, 0666) = -1 EEXIST (File exists)
open("/home/siretart/.mplayer/config", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3

Okay, one could argue that location in the comment of the file should
match the --prefix parameter of the configure line. I'm retitling the
bug accordingly. The fix should be in the configure script to rewrite
the comment in mplayer.conf accordingly.
