Hello Linux users.
I am on Fedora core 1 and I have been trying to install xvidcap - to no avail.
I got the ffmpeg thingy at:
It compiled ok - no errors.
Then I got “xvidcap-1.1.3-fc1.i386.rpm” and this is the output:
[[email protected] video]# rpm -ivh xvidcap-1.1.3-fc1.i386.rpm error: Failed dependencies: ffmpeg >= 0.4.8 is needed by xvidcap-1.1.3-fc1 libavcodec.so is needed by xvidcap-1.1.3-fc1 libavformat.so is needed by xvidcap-1.1.3-fc1
ffmpeg is installed… and the version is 0.4.9. huh?
When I look for ‘libavcodec.so’ and ‘libavformat.so’ I cannot find them. Dunno why they did not get made when I built ffmpeg from source.
Then I tried to get ffmpeg0.4.8 as an rpm and it said:
[[email protected] 03.Downloads]# rpm -ivh ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr.i386.rpm warning: ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b error: Failed dependencies: faac is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr faad2 is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr imlib2 is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr lame is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr libfaad.so.0 is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr libmp3lame.so.0 is needed by ffmpeg-0.4.8-2.fr
So - you can see that this is a messy deal and I am confused. I’m not in the mood to track down each of those deps and whatever deps they may need - it’s a nightmare.
