Could anyone clarify this scentence in the current version a little:
Be careful! Some of the libraries are better not to be installed (at all, beware of old installations) and should be linked to directly. These are mostly ffmpeg and liveMedia.
What does that mean? You shall fetch the source code and compile it (make) but not install (make install) it, but leave it in the source tree? --Rabenschwinge 12:28, 31 August 2007 (CEST)
Exactly. Don't make install on them. jb 19:41, 31 August 2007 (CEST)
latest contrib that works?
Using Debian Lenny.
I've followed the instructions in the HACKING and INSTALL.win32 files. Installed: autoconf (also pulls in automake) libtool gettext mingw32
Put the latest contrib contrib-20080528-win32-bin-gcc-4.2.1-sjlj-runtime-3.13-only.tar.bz2 into /usr/win32.
`make' didn't work.
I've tried `apt-get build-dep vlc'.
`make' works till some QT4 error:
