iriverter compile problem on suse, iaudio x5 video


I've downloaded iriverter 0.14 to be able to convert video to the format supported by my new iaudio x5 player. When I do a ./configure it says in the end:

javac not found in PATH

ifwhen I type javac the program does start, and I did a PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/java/bin/ to add javac to the path without luck;(

Any clue? This program would be really useful to me

Question Same problem on Ubuntu 5.04

krisealv, I have the same problem on Ubuntu 5.04, and would be willing to donate a little $ if someone could help me (although my pockets are running pretty dry atm after just buying my H340 )

Greetings
A little late but I hope I might be able to help you two. I recently got my IAUDIO X5L back from the RMA Dept, and have been looking into the video capabilities. Iriverter is supposedly the best program so I decided I wanted to try it out. After fiddling to install iriverter I believe I figured out how to install it. Mind you, I haven't exaclty tested iriverter yet but I believe it works fine. Heres how I installed iriverter:

1.) Download swt from (current at time of this is swt-3.1-gtk-linux-x86.zip)
2.) Unzip swt, to do this I moved and extracted swt-3.1-gtk-linux-x86.zip to a folder somewhere ex: ~/swt
3.) cd %JAVA_HOME%/jre/lib (%JAVA_HOME% that I used on slackware-current is at /usr/lib/java)
4.) cp ~/swt/libswt*.so i386/.
5.) cp ~/swt/swt.jar ext/.

Download iriverter: (currently it is iriverter-0.14.tar.bz2)
Install iriverter:
1.) I extracter iriverter to a directory where I usually move everything to for compile make and make install
2.) export JAVAC=/usr/lib/jdk1.5.0_04/bin/javac (make necessary changes to JAVAC location, locate javac)
3.) cd into your untarred dir for iriverter
4.) ./configure --with-swt=%JAVA_HOME%/jre/lib/ext/swt.jar
5.) make && make install

Then run iriverter and hopefully everything works.

Worth a try, good luck.

Talking Thanks!

BrianW, thank-you very very much! You were a great help - I now have a working iRiverter!
Would you like me to donate a little $$ for your efforts (either to you or your fav. Open Source project).

Unhappy Hmm, maybe not quite

Bugga - I was so excited that iriverter launched I forgot to check if it actually would encode.
When I go to encode a file it just sits there doing nothing - I think it is a problem with the encoder.
I installed mplayer binary for Ubuntu, as well as libxvidcore4 and avifile-xvid-plugin.
Are these packages sufficient or do I need to do some custom mplayer compiling?
Once I get it working I would definetely be glad to donate

Its a mencoder issue, I'm looking into solving it myself.
If you run mencoder from the command line you'll find that you get a segmentation fault.

EDIT: I believe it is an .mpg issue. Try converting an .avi file and see if it works fine.

A simple answer

Hmm, after seeing your comment about running mencoder, I type mencoder in my terminal.
It said "not found", so I realised I might not even have it installed correctly.
It turns out that I didn't install the mencoder package!
Now everything appears working
I will donate a little $$ to the iriverter project as soon as I get some more money.
Would you also like a donation, BrianW? Or maybe to the Slackware project?
P.S. don't think I am some rich guy - I am just a student who loves the concept of OSS - check out my project at: www.websitebaker.org

So are you able to convert mpg and avi files to avi correctly with out any problems? If so thats great. I believe I'm having issues with the mpegpes decoder included in mplayer so I have to solve that, however I'm tempted to just format and reinstall since its about time for a vanilla install.

I don't want any money, I'm helping you since I was in the same boat and its worth sharing what I've done in order for others to hopefully solve their own problems. If you so feel the need to donate, donate to whatever open source project you wish or perhaps to a favorite charity organization. (There are others who much more needy than myself.)

Thats an interesting site, I might have to look into it more

Well, I am having troubles converting DVD's and certain WMV files (DVD doesn't work at all, WMV is like 2 frames out of 100).
However, I just successfully converted a Matrix MPG trailer.

Hmm, maybe I will just use my money to pay for the server, domains, etc. for my Open Source project.
Hopefully Website Baker is enough in return for your help!
If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know

I am having the exact same problem....when i configure it, I get an error saying that it cant find ´javac´, when it really is in the path (can be executed from the prompt)

Like i said, it can be run from the shell by typing ´javac´....but following the above instructions, when i type ´locate javac´ - the correct path doesnt come up!?!?!??! if i type ´locate JAVAC´ (capitals), nuthin comes up!?!??!?!

AHHHH.....totally lost. Been trying to figure this out for weeks!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey....all the problems i am having with iriverter, i tried and after a few an hour of playing around i got the 0.13r1 release to open....but, now i have the same problem as you!!!

If i run mencoder with the same options that iriverter uses, i get the segmentation fault and it looks as though its the mpegpes decoder.

how did you fix this?????????

thanks,
jungmin

Well what I later found out that my problem was (IIRC) that iriverter was passing incorrect parameters to the command line for encoding the video file. I posted a deal at the iriverter sf forum but I haven't checked for quite a while to see if there has been any updates on it.
