XBMC 9.11 on Slackware64 13.1 compilation problems
 
Hi!

I am trying to install XBMC 9.11 on my Slackware64 13.1 machine and experience some major problems. I am trying to install from the Slackbuild script.

I installed absolutely all pre-requisites and all packages necessary to run XBMC. All of them compiled & installed without a single glitch. All from Slackbuilds.org

Now to the XBMC problem, I followed the instructions at the Slackbuild page that says:

Quote:

...a52dec (aka liba52) libass and python (all available
at slackbuilds.org or included in Slackware). Look inside the slackbuild for additional information to turn these options on.
So I went inside the xbmc.Slackbuild script and looked around to finally change a few things to benefit from all the installed options. In the section ENABLE_OPTS I modified as follows:

Code:

ENABLE_OPTS="\
  --enable-external-libogg \
  --enable-external-libwavpack \
  --enable-external-ffmpeg \
  --enable-external-liba52 \
  --enable-external-libdts \
  --enable-external-libmpeg2 \
  --enable-external-libass \
  --enable-external-python \
  --enable-external-libraries"

And ran the command as this:

Code:

USE_WII=yes xbmc.SlackBuild
but after a while, the compilation ended up with (truncated to save space):

Code:

/usr/include/libavutil/common.h: In function 'int32_t av_clipl_int32(int64_t)':

Anybody know why this is happening?

Build with the internal ffmpeg, not external. ffmpeg constantly changes their api among other things, and many programs can have difficulties building against a newer ffmpeg with code updates.

--disable-external-ffmpeg

Xbmc 9.11 came out quite a while ago compared to recent ffmpeg releases.

That did not work. I tried changing enable-external-ffmpeg to disable-external-ffmpeg but I get the same error.

Can you post the whole content of the Slackbuild?

Thanks!

I noticed several discrepancies between your script and mine. I believe all minor stuff. I modified the options to be like yours and I commented the option lines:

# --enable-external-python \
# --enable-external-libraries \

and I got past the last error. Now it gives a new error:

Remove these lines from the configure section this is why you get that error. It's reading the --build= as a separate command instead of being part of the configure options

# --enable-external-python \
# --enable-external-libraries \

Or, instead of modifying the SlackBuild, you could use the attached one. It's an earlier version from the same script maintainer.

lpallard 11-22-2010 09:14 PM

Thanks for your help!

the script you sent me ends up very early in the progress with:

Quote:

./xbmc.SlackBuild: line 78: /home/louis-philippe/xbmc/patches/libpng14.patch: No such file or directory
I must admit I am lost!

disturbed1 11-23-2010 01:30 PM

Download the original xbmc SlackBuild Archive - http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...ia/xbmc.tar.gz
Untar-gzip it. Replace that xbmc.SlackBuild with the one attached above.

There's nothing wrong with the one from SlackBuilds.org, you just need to correctly enable/disable external libraries. Just built it myself without external ffmpeg, and everything works fine.

lpallard 11-23-2010 07:18 PM

I finally got xbmc installed, I had to disable avahi and ffmpeg to get it to compile without errors...

THanks disturbed1 for your help!

disturbed1 11-23-2010 08:00 PM

Good deal!

We use XBMC on our HTPCs in combination with MythTV. I like XBMC's Movie and Music interface better along with it's built in UPnP support. If only they had better integration with MythTV for TV playback. A new release of XBMC should be coming soon with better MythTV support, right now it works when you manually enter myth://$BACKEND_IP as a source. Commercial skip doesn't work, and the recorded show listing is a little awkward.

lpallard 11-23-2010 08:16 PM

In term of installation, I marked this thread as solved because it is installed and running..

Now I will have to solve my bugs and learn how to use XBMC...

One thing I am looking to solve right away is a playback problem with HD content (namely I tried with avatar ripped as mkv). I might be opening a new thread for this one... I immediately noticed three major problems: light flickering, colors are all over the place and some refresh problems, like horizontal sharp bars...rather difficult to explain.

XBMC also creates a crash log in my home folder. It seems that fglrx is the root cause...

Quite possible.

We use all Nvidia hardware with VDPAU playback. Allows even a cheap Celeron e1400 (2.0 dual core) to playback 1080P h264 streams without using more than 10% CPU. Plus VDPAU has hardware IVTC, deinterlacing, color correction, noise filtering, and resizing - which makes our 1080i TV shows look beautiful :)
