Cross Compile VLC to arm9

Hello Guys,

Does anyone successfully tried to cross compile VLC 1.1.7 to arm9? Howto document? Step-by-step instructions?

I found this but the howto is incomplete and not updated(??).

Badly needed your help

Thanks in advance!

I was able to configure it successfully using this config options:

./configure --prefix= --host=arm-linux --target=arm-linux --disable-mad --disable-a52 --disable-libmpeg2 --disable-hal --disable-dbus --disable-dvdnav --disable-libcddb --disable-x11 --disable-glx --disable-xvideo --disable-xinerama --disable-opengl --disable-screen --disable-bonjour --disable-qt4 --disable-skins2 --disable-taglib --disable-freetype --disable-lua --disable-ffmpeg --disable-postproc --disable-swscale --disable-xcb--disable-libgcrypt --disable-remoteosd --enable-run-as-root
but after executing "MAKE" command, im getting this error:

libtool: link: link -dump -symbols .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin_la-mms.o .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin_la-mmsh.o .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin_la-mmstu.o .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin_la-buffer.o .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin_la-asf.o ../../../compat/.libs/libcompat.a | | /usr/bin/sed 's/.* //' | sort | uniq > .libs/libaccess_mms_plugin.exp

make[6]: *** [] Error 1
make[6]: Leaving directory `/home/zzz/vlc-1.1.7/modules/access/mms'
make[5]: *** [all] Error 2
Any idea what causes this error on libtool and how to fix it?

Any help will be deeply appreciated.

thank you and good day!

You may need to update libtool, but I'm not so sure about that.

It seems you disabled all UI parts (x11, qt4...) . If you just want to run a command line application to play video, it would be easier to simply build ffmpeg. AFAIK vlc is based on ffmpeg.
