XBMC Frodo compiled using Gotham patches

It seems who slackbuild files and dependenciess are not enough for compile XBMC, eg lack avr-binutils, and patches who I comented.

I have suffered enough to achieve compile this nice player and may not be worthwhile, but it is already known among nerds

Thanks who people what make patches

If anybody like to try to make, could comment thanks.


I compiled XBMC Gotham 13.1 now, the trouble was deactivate library vdpau with --disable vdpau in slackbuild in ./configure section. This was for avoid this error

CPP     xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDCodecs/Video/DVDVideoCodecFFmpeg.o
In file included from DVDVideoCodecFFmpeg.cpp:53:0:
VDPAU.h:232:3: error: 'GLsync' does not name a type
   GLsync fence;
VDPAU.h: In constructor 'VDPAU::CVdpauRenderPicture::CVdpauRenderPicture(CCriticalSection&)':
VDPAU.h:218:48: error: 'fence' was not declared in this scope
     : refCount(0), renderPicSection(section) { fence = None; }
make[1]: *** [DVDVideoCodecFFmpeg.o] Error 1
make: *** [xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDCodecs/Video/Video.a] Error 2
I stand while somebody comment anything about XBMC.

I have installers from 12.2 frodo and 13.1 gotham with all dependencies for fresh slackware 14.1. installation (need to try before).

How could create a patch from this code
--- a/xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDCodecs/Video/DVDVideoCodecFFmpeg.cpp
+++ b/xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDCodecs/Video/DVDVideoCodecFFmpeg.cpp
@@ -181,7 +181,7 @@ bool CDVDVideoCodecFFmpeg::Open(CDVDStreamInfo &hints, CDVDCodecOptions &options
       if(pCodec->id == hints.codec

-        if ((pCodec->id == CODEC_ID_MPEG4 || pCodec->id == CODEC_ID_XVID) && !g_advancedSettings.m_videoAllowMpeg4VDPAU)

         CLog::Log(LOGNOTICE,"CDVDVideoCodecFFmpeg::Open() Creating VDPAU(%ix%i, %d)",hints.width, hints.height, hints.codec);
to avoid deactivate vpau.

I'm clumsy in this matter.

...... sorry this patch was for frodo 12.2, I was confused.
I'm still researching some path for vdpau error in gotham.

Are you running slackware current, 14.0 or 14.1? Which version of xbmc do you want to compile and have you upgraded any slackware packages?

Easiest is to try the xbmc packages made for slaxbmc.
Latest sources are here:

Latest packages for 64-bit are here:

Hello hendrickxm

Yes, I run on Slackware 14.1 x64, I don't upgrade to a current but I compiled all dependencias as was possible.

The XBMC packages compiled with slaxbmc don't work on slackware for lack of libraries but if someone work on it, he must work.

If I had Know about Slaxbmc , I could save some efforts thanks.

I already built it, but now only handle for improve SlackBuilds repositories.
