Fuppes ./config error in Ubuntu 8.10


I seem to be just unable to install at this point - wondering if anyone had any pointers on what I may be missing.
First - my system (in case it makes a difference) is:
* GOAL3+ 754 SiS 761 GX Micro ATX Motherboard
* AMD Sempron 1.6GHZ 64 Bit
* New system - Ubuntu 8.10 AMD_64 (2.6.27-11-server) just did my update/upgrade/dist-upgrade today

I followed each step in this post and I'm erroring out during
Code:
./configure --enable-video-transcoding
here's the ending bit that's making me go crazy:
Code:
checking for _LARGEFILE_SOURCE value needed for large files... no
checking for off_t... yes
checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no
checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... no
checking whether byte ordering is bigendian... no
./configure: line 15948: PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG: command not found
checking for ld used by GCC... /usr/bin/ld -m elf_x86_64
checking if the linker (/usr/bin/ld -m elf_x86_64) is GNU ld... yes
checking for shared library run path origin... done
checking for iconv... yes
checking for working iconv... yes
checking for iconv declaration... 
         extern size_t iconv (iconv_t cd, char * *inbuf, size_t *inbytesleft, char * *outbuf, size_t *outbytesleft);
./configure: line 16974: syntax error near unexpected token `PCRE,'
./configure: line 16974: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(PCRE, libpcre >= 5.0)'
any help would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to LQ.

There are some issues in earlier versions of 'fuppes'.
Which version is used ??

'fuppes-SVN-578' can be build with some easy editing :

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ghlight=fuppes

May be the 'autoreconf' described in
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=984325
takes care of that ? Or just messes up things ??

( I don't recall using 'autoreconf' so better try with the
original "configure" file too ! )
Code:
./configure CC=gcc-4.1 CXX=g++-3.3 --enable-video-transcoding --enable-gnome-applet --enable-libnotify
will work, any newer gcc, g++ will not.

EDIT : edit line 711 in
fuppes-SVN-578/src/lib/Transcoding/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.cpp , from

Code:
  snprintf(buf + strlen(buf), sizeof(buf) - strlen(buf), "%X", (int)lrintf(log(qp_histogram[j]+1)/log(2)));
to
Code:
  snprintf(buf + strlen(buf), sizeof(buf) - strlen(buf), "%X", (int)lrintf(log(qp_histogram[j]+1.0)/log(2.0)));
for "transcoding" to compile.

Good luck.

....

And later ... I found this
http://fuppes.ulrich-voelkel.de/wiki...iling_on_Linux
https://fuppes.svn.sourceforge.net/s.../fuppes/trunk/
> > command
'svn co https://fuppes.svn.sourceforge.net/s.../fuppes/trunk/ fuppes'
to get fuppes (-svn-629 )

It is even worse ! ( If libmpeg4ip-dev is used )
But I used the new
fuppes-SVN-629/src/lib/Transcoding/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.cpp
to edit line 711, see # 2

(EDIT : fuppes -svn-629 can be compiled with libmpeg4ip,
libmp4v2-dev is required. )

just as an update I found I'm apparently missing pcre...
Thank you both for the advice!

I reinstalled pkjg-configit after I saw the error, thinking it wasnt there.
ran pkg-config --version. returned 0.22
ran pkg-configure --cflags libpcre. returned a blank line. I can only assume I don't have the library - which is crazy since one of the instructions is to install libpcre3-dev and when I tried it just now it told me it's already installed....


so I went and got it manually. now I'm still getting the same issue, but when I do pkg-configure --cflags libpcre I get
Code:
pkg-config --cflags pcre
Package pcre was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pcre.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pcre' found
as opposed to a blank line. looking into it now, but we'll see how that goes. any tips?

gonna look into those other suggestions as well right now...

Try this : click libpcre3-dev in Synaptic and
reinstall it.
....

'dpkg -L libpcre3-dev'

will show that all files are in place, ... hopefully !
