building mplayer2 in debian

apt-get install libxv-dev libasound2-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev
apt-get install libavutil-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libpostproc-dev
apt-get install autotools-dev automake autoconf yasm

git clone git://git.mplayer2.org/mplayer2-build.git
./init –shallow
./update
./make -j 6
(apt-get remove mplayer)
(make install)

after a few weeks playing with mlayer2 I’ve decided to upgrade the repository:
./update
gave me the following error:

tatico@tortuguita:~/codigo/mplayer2-build$ ./update
Updating 90e07b3..5079c04
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
README
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
Aborting

so I did a:

tatico@tortuguita:~/codigo/mplayer2-build$ git checkout -- README

then ./update worked!
