You can make the description anything you want. It's just for your future reference.step 3 Yasm
ok its asking me
ummm Im lost? for the record I typed in yasmhelpCode:sudo checkinstall checkinstall 1.6.1, Copyright 2002 Felipe Eduardo Sanchez Diaz Duran This software is released under the GNU GPL. The package documentation directory ./doc-pak does not exist. Should I create a default set of package docs? [y]: y Preparing package documentation...OK Please write a description for the package. End your description with an empty line or EOF.
it created a deb file
Checkinstall is telling you that it installed yasm and you now have the option to remove it later by using dpkg. Since you used checkinstall, you can also later remove yasm with apt-get/Synaptic, or aptitude--whichever you're comfortable with.so what do I do now? i understand it as saying its installed so I guess I just go on to step 4Code:Done. The new package has been installed and saved to /home/mark/yasm-0.7.1/yasm_0.7.1-1_i386.deb You can remove it from your system anytime using: dpkg -r yasm
Looks like network problems.Step 6-the wheel falls off?
svn ffmpeg works untill...
and thuis the ./configure fails because libswscale is missingCode:Fetching external item into 'ffmpeg/libswscale' svn: Unknown hostname 'svn.mplayerhq.hu'
at this point I go to bed
what to do next?
Good thinking and it probably worked, but I would delete the ~/ffmpeg folder and try again due to the network issues from before. Once you delefe the ffmpeg folder start at:ahh but b4 i do i tried
then ./configure.......etcCode:git clone git://git.mplayerhq.hu/libswscale/
It should attempt to download what it couldn't get earlier.Code:cd ~/ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
Not your fault. Look at Dark Shikari's response above. Since this is the bleeding-edge, there will be problems once in awhile, but the x264 and ffmpeg developers are usually quick and get things fixed within a few days.which worked up untill
now I am lostCode:libavcodec/libx264.c: In function ‘X264_init’: libavcodec/libx264.c:230: error: ‘struct <anonymous>’ has no member named ‘b_bidir_me’ libavcodec/libx264.c:231: error: ‘struct <anonymous>’ has no member named ‘b_bframe_rdo’ make: *** [libavcodec/libx264.o] Error 1
If you don't feel comfortable doing this you can use ffmpeg from the Medibuntu repository, but it's an older version and you can't customize it they way you want...and you won't learn as much/get as frustrated as doing it this way.
