[SOLVED] VLC1.1.7

Post#1 by blablotin » 06 Feb 2011, 16:21

Hello, I would like to know if somebody albready built or installed VLC1.1.7 for porteus, because I tried to install from this non-US mirror: http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/re ... uilds/vlc/, but when I open VLC, I do not have any interface. It is like if I have only 'cvlc'.

And when I run VLC from Konsol; it say "main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help." so I am not abble to find missing dependance.

best option is to build it from sources by using alien's slack.build. go here:
http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/slac ... vlc/build/

grab all the stuff and put into one folder (when in firefox: right mouse click and choose 'FlashGot All').
and then open console:
' sh vlc.SlackBuild'
you will find txz package in /tmp dir so just convert it to porteus module.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

If there are missing libraries you could try:

ldd $(which vlc) | grep "not found"

@ fanthom, I got error

Code: Select all

nasm  -Ox -f elf32 does not support section alignment (nasm <=2.08?)

Configuration failed. This could reflect a misconfiguration of your
toolchains, improper options selected, or another problem. If you
don't see any useful error messages above, the next step is to look
at the configure error log file (config.err) to determine what
configure was trying to do when it died.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
cp: cannot stat `libvpx.a': No such file or directory
And I cannot see why, cannot read useful error messages above, and don't understand config.err: http://pastebin.com/7xneAV1y

and if I instal yasm, 30minute later it say

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/libsndfile.so: undefined reference to `FLAC__seekable_stream_encoder_set_sample_rate'
/usr/lib/libsndfile.so: undefined reference to `FLAC__seekable_stream_encoder_set_seek_callback'
/usr/lib/libsndfile.so: undefined reference to `FLAC__seekable_stream_decoder_set_error_callback'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [fluidsynth] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/build/tmp-vlc/fluidsynth-1.1.1/src'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
sed: can't read /tmp/build/tmp-vlc/vlcdeps/usr/lib/pkgconfig/fluidsynth.pc: No such file or directory
that mean fluid synth is a missing dependencie althought it has been downloades with slackbuild
Then I have 750 Mo in tmp that mean in every case, the modul will be Huge, and that I have not enought memorie to use the best way to build VLC 1.1.7 How do other guy to do 20 Mo size vlc module with all dependencies?

@ brokenman 'dd $(which vlc) | grep "not found"' say me
'dd: unrecognized operand `/usr/bin/vlc''

@ crashman, I installed QT4.5.3, but there is still no interface. More over, I cannot launch anymore any application, cannot killX, and when I do ctrl alt f6, and type root, it freez befor asking my password. So there is noway to 'reboot-f', the onlyway to reboot is to unplug booth the AC and the batterie.

moreover it has been said that
Alien's VLC packages have no dependency on additional packages (except for libdvdcss if you want to play DVD's)
by this sentence I understand that every dependency are in http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/re ... 1alien.txz

@blabotin
Download vlc from slax site http://www.slax.org/modules/3958/dl/vlc-1.0.6-all.lzm unpack them and only copy any libs libQT....from /usr/lib to vlc-1.7.7 /usr/lib path, folders dont have copy.

Hello blablotin,

I was able to use Alien Bob's vlc version 1.1.6 by adding qt-4.7.0_7abde40-i486-2.txz . I don't remember where I downloaded it from but a google search took me to this package that "should" work: http://packages.zenwalk.org/?p=qt-4.7.0 ... n=snapshot

hope that works for ya...

Can anyone post me a link to a working vlc version?

Something to do with root access i think.

I feasted to soon...

Vlc works but now my sound is messed up in porteus... (the sound mixer is messed up and hdmi port doesn't forward sound).
When vlc breaks porteus more that it is an addition, i'll have to wait till someone with more knowledge posts a working tested version.
Anyone applying? (btw I tried the workaround crashman suggested using the old vlc 1.06 module, copying the qtlibs to the new usr/lib folder)

One of the reasons i left vlc behind is the dependencies required for slack.

a52dec, aaa_elflibs, amrnb, amrwb, atk, cairo, cxxlibs, cyrus-sasl, dbus, faac, faad2, ffmpeg, flac, fluidsynth, fontconfig, fribidi, gtk+2, jack, glib2, glibc-solibs, gnutls, hal, lame, libcap, libcddb, libcdio, libdca, libdrm, libdvdnav, libdvdread, libebml, libgcrypt, libgpg-error, libgsf, libid3tag, libjpeg, libmad, libmatroska, libmpeg2, libnotify, libogg, librsvg, libsamplerate, libtheora, libtiff, libva, libvorbis, libxml2, lua, mesa, openldap-client, openssl-solibs, pango, pixman, qt, samba, sdl, taglib, util-linux-ng, vcdimager, x264, xvidcore

For this version of porteus (latest version of vlc) ffmpeg may also need to be recompiled for libva. This version has started using VAAPI accelerated video decoding and uses libavcodec from ffmpeg.

I don't find where I hide the secret: I said I have choosen crashman's solution:
that mean to download from alien 's built all dependencie: http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/re ... 2alien.txz
to add any libs libQT....from /usr/lib to vlc-1.7.7 /usr/lib path found in an older version: http://www.slax.org/modules/3958/dl/vlc-1.0.6-all.lzm. (who avoid to download 50 Mo extra for libqt


that give the working VLC 1.7.7 version: http://www.mediafire.com/?au8ntq4in4x4388
