Re: HOWTO: Compile the latest ffmpeg and x264 from source
Ok..finaly done, but after i locked App...
"6. Lock your packages. If you named your packages "x264" and "ffmpeg" then aptitude and apt/Synaptic will attempt to "upgrade" your new x264 and ffmpeg installations with the ancient official versions in the repository. If you use aptitude:
sudo aptitude hold x264 ffmpeg
Open System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> Choose the x264 package -> Package -> Lock Version
I'll sugest instead "sudo aptitude hold x264 ffmpeg" in guide to be only "Lock Version" for both ffmpeg and x264 before they start to install them even at the begining, so people will not be confused anymore
