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.

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!

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.

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

THanks disturbed1 for your help!

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.

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
