How to install latest smplayer


hi all

i'm running CentOS 6.4 x64 and want to install smplayer 0.8.4. the latest smplayer for centos6 is provided by 'nux dextop' and its 'smplayer-0.8.1-1'. in smplayer's official website they have given instruction for ubuntu/suse/arch/mandriva/slackware, but not centos.

i downloaded 'smplayer-0.8.4.tar.bz2', and followed setup instructions (install.txt):

2) How to make a rpm package
----------------------------
Run rpmbuild -tb smplayer-0.6.x.tar.bz2
You'll find the rpm pachage under /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i586/

Take a look at this document to know how to create a rpm from the SVN sources:
http://smplayer.berlios.de/forums/viewtopic.php?id=188
1. but i'm getting errors
Code:
[root@srv archives]# rpmbuild -tb smplayer-0.8.4.tar.bz2

2. and there is no 'packages/RPMS/i586/' directory
Code:
[root@srv src]# pwd

[root@srv src]# ls -lh
total 12K

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   34 Mar 17 13:15 vboxhost-4.2.10 -> /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost
While installing CentOS 6.4 i had included 'Development Tools'. What i'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

...but they are all v0.8.1 or less only. i've already installed v0.8.1-1 from 'Nux Dextop'. i'am hoping to install v0.8.4 for latest fixes.

Just two notes from the output of the rpmbuild command line:
Code:
cd /root/rpmbuild/BUILD
this tells you that the build directory is not in /usr/src anymore. Indeed it changed since CentOS 6.0, whereas prior releases used /usr/src.
Code:
/bin/sh: qmake: command not found
this one tells you that the system misses some dependency. The qmake command is provided by the qt-devel packages. I've never installed smplayer, but most likley it uses the Qt libraries for its graphical user interface and the build process depends on a proper Qt development installation. Try
Code:
yum install qt-devel
to solve this step.

smplayer is a QT4 frontend to mplayer

so qmake and the qt development files needs installing
along with mplayer and it's -devel package

see:
Code:
su -
yum grouplist
for the software groups to be installed

Great!!! smplayer is up and running. thanks

To sum it up, for all who want to install latest smplayer for rhel6/centos6/scientific linux6, these are the steps:
  1. # yum groupinstall "development tools"
  2. # yum install qt-devel
  3. # PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib64/qt4/bin ; export PATH
  4. install audio/video codecs
  5. download smplayer-0.8.4.tar.bz2
  6. # rpmbuild -tb smplayer-0.8.4.tar.bz2
  7. # /root/rpmbuild/BUILD/smplayer-0.8.4/src/smplayer
that's it
