i have a quick question, i was trying to install xine and followed the website's instruction to install xine-lib first and then xine-ui. i installed xine-lib-1.0.1 and i think everything went fine. then i tried to install xine-ui-0.99.3 and getting the following message
checking for xine-config... /usr/local/bin/xine-config
checking for XINE-LIB version >= 1.0.0... no
*** Could not run XINE test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding XINE or finding the wrong
*** version of XINE. If it is not finding XINE, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error: *** You should install xine-lib first **
i tried ldconfig as root and tried to recompile but still getting the same error. my question is , how do i set my LD_LIBRARY_PATH? thanks in advance
You can set variables like LD_LIBRARY_PATH in quite a few places. /etc/profile, ~/.bash_profile and ~/.bashrc are the obvious ones. However in this case it would probably make more sense to edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add the line
and then run ldconfig again (read man ldconfig) or (my prefered option) compile xine-lib with
Then it will be installed in /usr/lib which ldconfig will always check
