Linux VLC FAQ
Q.- I am trying to compile VLC and i'm getting the errors "Missing header file ffmpeg/avcodec.h" and/or "Missing header file postproc/postprocess.h"
A. To get rid of these problems while compiling, run configure with these flags at least: ./configure --enable-shared --enable-shared-pp --enable-pp --enable-gpl
The description of each of those is available when doing ./configure --help
Q.- I am trying to compile VLC and on a 64 bit system and i'm getting the errors "cc1: error: invalid option `tune=opteron'"
A. From what I can see, the -mtune flag is not available for this type of processor in man gcc. Edit the configure where it says mtune=opteron to say march=k8. It will pass that error. (Putting it as march=opteron should work according to the man pages, but I put k8 anyway).
