library linking question. linking question

I am trying to get dvdrip to compile but I need libmpeg2 as a dependency first. I run the following with the latest libmpeg2 tar ball.

make install

and it tells it installed the libraries in /usr/local/lib however I don't see any .so file just .a and .la for libmpeg2

I checked my /etc/ to make sure /usr/local/lib was added and it is and tested by running ldconfig -v > results.txt

It recognizes the xine libs in /usr/local/lib but no libmpeg2

If anyone can give me any ideas this would help tremendously on learning some new things.

Best Regards,

When you make libmpeg2 check configure --help and see about static builds.

Also, just in case, I find some programs either fail to check or something else just as make sure that your LD_LIBRARY_PATH includes everything that is in

There was one other thing ... oh yeah, when you ./configure xine, there is usually an option for it to add a library path --include-libs or something like that, you can always use that to point to it as well.

While the above may not solve your problem, it usually helps me.
