I'm trying to build zbar, a barcode reader.
I'm running Slackware64-current with the latest updates, generic kernel.
The sourcefile is zbar-0.10 and the slackbuildscript is from slacky.eu
I've changed the arch to -x86_64 in the script.
./configure fails because /linux/videodev.h is missing
I found the following messages in config.log
configure:18727: checking linux/videodev.h usability
configure:18744: gcc -c -O2 -fPIC conftest.c >&5
conftest.c:71:28: fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file or directory
configure:18805: result: no
configure:18838: checking for linux/videodev.h
configure:18847: result: no
configure:18859: error: in `/tmp/txz/zbar/zbar-0.10':
configure:18864: error: test for video support failed!
rebuild your kernel to include video4linux support or
configure --disable-video to skip building video support.
See `config.log' for more details.
But I cannot seem to find out what my system is missing. In fact the module videodev is loaded. What is /linux/videodev.h?
I've appended the logfile to this posting.
Note that I want to use zbar with my webcam an I suppose that this would not work if I build the package with --disable-video
Thanks in advance
