VLC Slackware 14 libva
 
Ok, I'm a bit stumped here with an error I'm getting compiling alienBOB's vlc script. The build fails when it tries to build libva. I have already compiled using his script. I've built this script many times and I have never seen this error. Here's what I'm getting:
Code:

libva - 0.32.0

 • Global :
    Prefix: /usr

 • Drivers: dummy
 • Winsys : x11 egl glx
make: the `-j' option requires a positive integral argument
Usage: make [options] [target] ...
Options:
  -b, -m                      Ignored for compatibility.
  -B, --always-make          Unconditionally make all targets.
  -C DIRECTORY, --directory=DIRECTORY
                              Change to DIRECTORY before doing anything.
  -d                          Print lots of debugging information.
  --debug[=FLAGS]            Print various types of debugging information.
  -e, --environment-overrides
                              Environment variables override makefiles.
  --eval=STRING              Evaluate STRING as a makefile statement.
  -f FILE, --file=FILE, --makefile=FILE
                              Read FILE as a makefile.
  -h, --help                  Print this message and exit.
  -i, --ignore-errors        Ignore errors from recipes.
  -I DIRECTORY, --include-dir=DIRECTORY
                              Search DIRECTORY for included makefiles.
  -j [N], --jobs[=N]          Allow N jobs at once; infinite jobs with no arg.
  -k, --keep-going            Keep going when some targets can't be made.
  -l [N], --load-average[=N], --max-load[=N]
                              Don't start multiple jobs unless load is below N.
  -L, --check-symlink-times  Use the latest mtime between symlinks and target.
  -n, --just-print, --dry-run, --recon
                              Don't actually run any recipe; just print them.
  -o FILE, --old-file=FILE, --assume-old=FILE
                              Consider FILE to be very old and don't remake it.
  -p, --print-data-base      Print make's internal database.
  -q, --question              Run no recipe; exit status says if up to date.
  -r, --no-builtin-rules      Disable the built-in implicit rules.
  -R, --no-builtin-variables  Disable the built-in variable settings.
  -s, --silent, --quiet      Don't echo recipes.
  -S, --no-keep-going, --stop
                              Turns off -k.
  -t, --touch                Touch targets instead of remaking them.
  -v, --version              Print the version number of make and exit.
  -w, --print-directory      Print the current directory.
  --no-print-directory        Turn off -w, even if it was turned on implicitly.
  -W FILE, --what-if=FILE, --new-file=FILE, --assume-new=FILE
                              Consider FILE to be infinitely new.
  --warn-undefined-variables  Warn when an undefined variable is referenced.

Any ideas?

Hmm, it appears that for some reason, libva did not want to compile with ${NUMJOBS}. I had to do the following around line 3007.

Code:

#make -j${NUMJOBS} 2>&1 | tee $OUTPUT/make-${PRGNAM}_libva.log
make 2>&1 | tee $OUTPUT/make-${PRGNAM}_libva.log

Once I took out -j${NUMJOBS}, the script continued on without errors. Will mark this as solved once the build completes.

Well done for figuring it out .... any reason why you didn't just use his binary package ? It's kinda a lot easier to install :-)

The VLC packages which I built for Slackware 14 have been created with an updated vlc.SlackBuild which I have not yet uploaded to the server. I will do that once VLC 2.0.4 is released. Some Slackware 14 related build issues were resolved in that script.

I need vlc to have pulseaudio support. Long story. :)
