Trying to install FFMPEG?
 
Hello, i have been trying to install ffmpeg but i keep getting this error:
I'm using slapt-get by the way.

slapt-get --install ffmpeg
Reading Package Lists...Done
Excluding ffmpeg, use --ignore-dep to override
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ffmpeg: Depends: libva >= 0.31.1+sds4-i486-3sl
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
ffmpeg
0 upgraded, 0 reinstalled, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, 1 not upgraded.

Done
root@Stigmata:/home/miguel# slapt-get --search libva
libva-0.31.1+sds4-i486-3sl [inst=yes]: LibVA (Video Acceleration Library)


so as you can see it complains that ffmpeg needs libva >= 0.31.1+sds4-i486-3sl but i actually have installed it already.
what do you think? what can i do?

Well this is solved, just use the slackbuild :)

are you sure you have the right version? the output says it needs 0.31.1 or higher, so maybe you have an earlier version installed

yes i'm sure, see in this line i search for libva and it says i have it installed:

root@Stigmata:/home/miguel# slapt-get --search libva
libva-0.31.1+sds4-i486-3sl [inst=yes]: LibVA (Video Acceleration Library)

try using the slackbuild from slackbuilds.org. That might install better than with slapt-get.

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...imedia/ffmpeg/

edit: now that I look at it, libva isn't even on the dep list. So I don't know why its asking for that

yeah, weird isn't it?, I'm gonna try the slackbuild I'm pretty sure it will work.

this depends on the repository you've set in slaptget (slacky's one, probably) and can manifest a problem with that: you should probably report it there.

for ffmpeg, an alternative solution, can be Eric's all-in-one static package.

I had problems installing ffmpeg from slackbuilds because of a small problem with where documentation was supposed to go during the install. Partially sorted in this thread.

However the best advice, aslo offered in that thread, was to build from Eric's / Alien Bob's slackbuild which has made a big difference to various multimedia packages that rely on ffmpeg since it builds with a most of the optional features "on".

Why not install it from svn? ffmpeg is one of those apps that are very often updated and the svn version is always going to be the most up to date, once all the dependencies are sorted and the various configure options are set I found that the svn version was by for the best route.

This is my configure:
Code:

./configure --enable-libspeex --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libopenjpeg --enable-nonfree --enable-libxvid --arch=x86_64 --enable-libx264 --enable-gpl --enable-libvorbis --enable-libtheora --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libfaac --disable-ffserver --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-pthreads --enable-postproc --shlibdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-shared
Shared libdir has to be set other wise it defaults to lib and not lib64 ( I'm on a 64 bit system obviously )

I agree completely, breakages are rare and benefits are huge. Mind you I think you mean the git FFmpeg :).

Have they gone over to git then? I am still updating via svn, I havn't been to their hompage in a while in fact I did an svn update a couple of days ago,guess I better visit the homepage and see what's what.

Keith Hedger 02-25-2011 03:04 PM

Yep they've changed to git, I hate git I much prefer svn, oh well :(
Thanks for the heads up on the change
