libxine1-devel-1.1.3 installation problems


SuSE 9.0 (old I know) operating system.

I have only managed to install xine-lib-1.1.3 from a tarball, all the rpms I could find bombed out using YaST.

configure --prefix=/usr
make
as root
make install

and everything seems to be installed just fine.

I am now having the same problem with libxine1-devel, all the rpms I find bomb out, except now I cannot seem to find any tarballs for
libxine1-devel.

Does anyone know if there is anywhere I can download them

Xinehq doesn't help much!

You have the tarball with the source. The devel stuff is in there and has probably been installed already. Anything that didn't get installed automagically is still in the source tree.

Hi Arow,

Thanks, but I really don't understand your reply!

"You have the tarball with the source."

The tarballs I have are xine-lib-1.1.3 and xine-ui-0.99.4 from which I have unpacked the source.

in xine-lib-1.1.3, I do configure --prefix=/usr
make
(as root) make install

However xine-ui tells me it needs libxine1-devel, but I cannot seem to find a tarball from which I can build from source, and all the rpms I have found don't work. The YaST doesn't warn of missing dependencies, it just bombs out and closes. So my question is, is there anywhare at all I can get the source? I have been searching for a long time with no luck, is it even open source in the first place?

Also, do you mean the devel stuff should be in the xine-lib-1.1.3 directory? It certainly doesn't seem to be. Again, I can download xine-lib and xine-ui from sourceforge, but libxine is not there either.

The non-source based distros provide the 'executable' stuff in the FOO package and the development stuff in the FOO-devel package. But they make both available of course. They also rename things like libxine instead of xine-lib. That's why you can't find a libxine-devel package at Xinehq; the Xine developers don't create one.

When you use a package manager like YaST, it takes care of alot of details that are your responsibility when you install from source. Did you update/verify that your PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH contain the path to the xine binary and xine library that was installed? Did you execute ldconfig as root?

From this

I presume you downloaded the tarball with the source code for xine. First you configured everything for your machine, then you compiled and linked it, then you installed it. Typically, this exercise installs the 'devel' stuff in addition to the libraries and binaries needed to run the program. So, by downloading the tarball with the source code, you *should* have everything that would be found in the libxine-devel package.

Since the subsequent install of xine-ui is failing (are you attempting to build xine-ui from source?), something went wrong with the xine-lib installation. It is a good rule of thumb to post the last 20-30 lines of output from the failed configure or make command to facilitate troubleshooting. It would also be a good idea to post the actual configure or make command you executed.
