Avidemux install (Wiki addition)


I've been struggling with Avidemux and SpiderMonkey installation.
I couldn't find decent tutorial (not on Avidemux Wiki or elsewhere), and after successful installation, I decided to write a tutorial that would be helpful to LFS (and other) users.
I tried to add the tutorial to BLFS Wiki, but I don't have "WIKI_CREATE" permission.
I would appreciate if someone uploads it to BLFS Wiki.

Here's tutorial:

***********************

Avidemux

This page explains how to install Avidemux. Avidemux requires SpiderMonkey scripting engine, so it will be installed first.

    • Installing nspr
    • Installing js

Installing SpiderMonkey

In order to install SpiderMonkey, Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) API needs to be instaled first.

Installing nspr

Download nspr form here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/nspr/releases/. After unpacking the source, do the following:

Code:
cd mozilla/nsprpub
./configure --with-pthreads
make
rm -Rf dist/bin
tar -czhf nspr-bin.tar.gz -C dist/ .
Make yourself superuser, and install nspr by doing the following:

Code:
tar -C /usr/local/ -xzf nspr-bin.tar.gz
ldconfig
Installing js

Download js from here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/js/. Unpack it, cd into src directory and edit Makefile.ref file, so that it can find nspr.
Section

Code:
ifdef JS_THREADSAFE
DEFINES += -DJS_THREADSAFE
INCLUDES += -I../../dist/$(OBJDIR)/include
ifdef USE_MSVC
OTHER_LIBS += ../../dist/$(OBJDIR)/lib/libnspr${NSPR_LIBSUFFIX}.lib
else
OTHER_LIBS += -L../../dist/$(OBJDIR)/lib -lnspr${NSPR_LIBSUFFIX}
endif
endif
should be replaced with

Code:
ifdef JS_THREADSAFE
DEFINES += -DJS_THREADSAFE
INCLUDES += -I/usr/local/include/nspr
ifdef USE_MSVC
OTHER_LIBS += ../../dist/$(OBJDIR)/lib/libnspr${NSPR_LIBSUFFIX}.lib
else
OTHER_LIBS += -L/usr/local/lib -lnspr4
endif
endif
Next, compile js:

Code:
export JS_THREADSAFE=1
make -f Makefile.ref BUILD_OPT=1
Make yourself superuser, and install js:

Code:
mkdir /usr/local/include/js
cp *.h /usr/local/include/js
cd Linux_All_OPT.OBJ/
cp *.h /usr/local/include/js
cp js jscpucfg /usr/local/bin/
cp libjs.so libjs.a /usr/local/lib/
ldconfig
Now, you can proceed with installing Avidemux.

Installing Avidemux

Download latest Avidemux source code from http://www.avidemux.org.
Install it by typing:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-jsapi-include=/usr/local/include/js
make
su
make install
Comments

This was tested with nspr 4.6.5, js 1.6 and Avidemux 2.3.
If you're using FreeType-2.1.7, you'll need to upgrade to newer version in order to install Avidemux 2.3.

What part of the Avidemux wiki was not helpful for you? I wrote about half of the Avidemux Wiki, and I still maintain it daily, so if there is something you want added, please post about it.

If this tutorial of yours is complete, I think I may just move it into the documentation.

There are several solutions on Avidemux Wiki, but I couldn't figure that it is necessary to compile threadsafe SpiderMonkey. I spent too much time to figure that. My problem was that older Avidemux version (2.1.2) compiled well with SpiderMonkey already installed on my system (non-threadsafe, I think), but 2.3.0 didn't compile. So I thought it was Avidemux problem.

Maybe current Wiki is too complicated (some solutions use Mozilla SpiderMonkey, some use independent library). Maybe, there should be tutorial for compiling from source, and distribution specific tutorials with package managers. Just a suggestion...

Yes, I wrote it. Please add it to Avidemux Wiki. It should be there. Thanks.
