Unhappy Need FFMPEG CVS tarball....


I know this is a weird request but I've been dead in the water all weekend trying to find a recent ffmpeg cvs snapshot. mplayerhq cvs and mailing lists for ffmpeg have been out of commission for days. The only page accessible is their homepage on sourceforge which hosts no files what-so-ever...

I found 20060329 from debian but compilation bombs on libavcodec/ppc/dsputil_snow_altivec.c

Found a patch full of garbage for it on gmane but after deciphering it, it's still a no-go....

AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have many more multimedia packages to build and ffmpeg threw a wrench in the gears... This entire weekend has been a waste. Can some kind soul toss a recent tarball my way? I'll love ya' forever....

I went to ffmpeg.sourceforge.net a few days ago and used the cvs command listed there:
Code:
cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous@mplayerhq.hu:/cvsroot/ffmpeg co ffmpeg
That worked for me then. Today I tried and I get a connection timeout.

I don't have a clean copy of it anymore. I did a ./configure and make and checkinstall right in the directory where I downloaded FFmpeg. The slackware tgz file created by checkinstall is about 11 MB. If I tar the entire directory where I downloaded FFmpeg, it is 46 MB.

If you want the slackware tgz package I made or if you can tell me how to clean up the FFmpeg directory to it's original status, I'll tar it up and send it to you.

Ooooooo.... Cool. Yea, you should be able to do a
Code:
make distclean
in the source directory. That should get it down in size. Then cd out of the source and
Code:
tar cjf ffmpeg.tar.bz2 name-of-ffmpeg-directory
Should make it around 3.8Mb or so. Try to email it to me at jgrosshart at gmail dot com. Hopefully that will work. Thanks much for helping out. Much apprecieated.

I'm on a PPC arch so your slak-pak wouldn't do much good...
