building multimedia software, problems finding dependencies


Downloaded multimedia software sources, and am looking for the dependencies needed to build it. Have some questions on what to do. Read below to help.

What is needed to get these supported on the Linux box? If there is a particular library needed, what is the library name and website for sources?

Mozilla XUL/ GECKO support
Joystick support
Renoir
DVB support
XMLPRC support

Also, I would like to add additional sound support, could someone help on if these different sound support options conflict with each other?

OSS
ALSA
Jack
PulseAudio

Currently, I have OSS and ALSA...but was thinking of adding Jack and PulseAudio. Would this cause a conflict?

Okay:
Joystick support is built in. See what joysticks are supported.
Mozilla GECKO you can get sources from mozilla.org.
Next three, use google.


Pulse has plugins for OSS,jack, ALSA.

What about Mozilla XUL, or is that the same as GECKO support?

What about Renoir:
http://www.google.com/linux?hl=en&q=...rt&btnG=Search
What about DVB:
http://www.google.com/linux?hl=en&q=...rt&btnG=Search

This seems to be for XMLPRC:
http://tldp.org/HOWTO/XML-RPC-HOWTO/...o-applist.html
http://xmlrpc.sourceforge.net

I was looking for XMLPRC support...is that the same as XML-RPC?

So joystick support is built into the kernel...how can I find what is built in, and what joystick modules are built?

There is a website that has some information about DVB, but no downloadable sources: http://www.dvb.org

There is a website that has LIBDVB downloadable sources, but no md5sum nor gpg signature: http://www.metzlerbros.org/dvb

It looks like the multimedia sources want XMLRPC-C and there is a download site, but no md5sum nor gpg signature: http://xmlrpc-c.sourceforge.net/

It also looks like there is DVB support in the linux includes! How can I find what version of DVB support that is or resolve the errors? These errors are coming up:

Quote:
In file included from /usr/include/linux/dvb/dmx.h:28
/usr/include/time.h:105 error: conflicting types for 'timer_t'
/usr/include/linux/types.h:22: error: previous declaration of 'timer_t' was here
It also looks like there is joystick support in the linux includes! How can I resolve these errors:

Quote:
In file included from /usr/include/sys/time.h:31
from /usr/include/linux/input.h:12
from /usr/include/linux/joystick.h:31
/usr/include/sys/select.h:78 error conflicting types for 'fd_set'
/usr/include/linux/types.h:12 error previous declaration of 'fd_set' was here

also conflicting types for 'dev_t', 'gid_t', 'mode_t', 'nlink_t', 'uid_t' 'blkcnt_t' and 'timer_t'
EDIT: there appear to be conflicting header files. The conflict is from /usr/include/sys/types.h and /usr/include/linux/types.h. How can I find out what versions of glibc-headers and kernel-headers are installed?

Quote:
# rpm -qf /usr/include/sys/types.h
file /usr/include/sys/types.h is not owned by any package
# rpm -qf /usr/include/linux/types.h
file /usr/include/linux/types.h is not owned by any package
I know how to find out what kernel version is being used, but that does not mean that the same version kernel headers are installed!

Here is what I can answer:
Everything will not have a GPG or md5 signature, you have to take that chance sometimes.
Use the libs available: dvb, xul, etc and then find an application or applications which are front ends.
Recompile the headers for the current kernel if you haven't downloaded them.
