How to install binaries ?


I got some divx codec i wanted to install.

the codec are divx4linux-20020418.tgz
The pakage contains:
decore.h
DivX MPEG-4 Codec and Its Interface.htm
encore2.h
install
install.sh
libdivxdecore.so
libdivxencore.so
license.txt
README.linux

The installation information in README.linux say's:
"Extract the archive, and run "./install.sh" as root".

My distro:suse 8.1

Questions:
1)which commands must i give to install the filles listed above.
2)Can i convert the files listed above in to a RPM and then install it with yast?

Thanks

Ummm...did your run:

1 thing to add, you might have to chmod the install.sh file first:
chmod u+x install.sh
THEN
./install.sh

Cool

chmod should have returned nothing, that's good. Then ./install.sh should have started the install process. Try:
sh install.sh

You are typing these into a terminal within the directory containing these files, correct?

Cool

Well nothing is suppose to be returned when you do:

chmod u+x install.sh

If you ran:

./install.sh

and it returned nothing then it probably just installed automatically.

Fire up a text editor with the install.sh script in it:
less install.sh
See what it's doing. See if it tells you where files are going, if it does, then:
updatedb (this will take a good while)
locate <file>
Replace <file> with a file that is being copied somewhere (according to the install.sh file).



If you have questions, and the install.sh isn't too long, post it up so we can give it a look over.

Cool
