  • Hi,

    I managed to run
    ./configure
    make

    but when I ran make install I got this :-

    for file in xvidcap-C.omf; do \         /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./$file.out /usr/local/share/omf/xvidcap/$file; \ done
    /usr/bin/install: cannot stat `./xvidcap-C.omf.out': No such file or directory
    make[4]: *** [install-data-local-omf] Error 1
    make[4]: Leaving directory `/root/xvidcap/xvidcap-1.1.7/doc/xvidcap/C'
    make[3]: *** [install-am] Error 2
    make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/xvidcap/xvidcap-1.1.7/doc/xvidcap/C'
    make[2]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/xvidcap/xvidcap-1.1.7/doc/xvidcap'
    make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/xvidcap/xvidcap-1.1.7/doc'
    make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

    This is on SUSE 10 - i386

    Cheers

    • Oops,
      are you sure, you're not doing make install-docs ?
      Will need to look into this ...
      I suppose you don't have scrollkeeper, do you? Installing it should fix your issue, or manually creating the files make complains about.

      Does it work  properly ?

       
    • Hi

      I've got the same problem on SUSE10.3

      Installing scrollkeeper does not solve the problem and creating the file "xvidcap-C.omf.out" neither.

      • Can you rerun configure and make from a freshly extracted source tarball and send the complete output of configure and make to me in a private email?
        TIA,

        Karl.

         
    • Hi Karl,

      sorry for the late answer. I created the logs of configure and make.

      But I don't know your mail address. Could you provide me your adress anyhow?

    Got a problem running make and make install. ./configure works fine. On running make, i get this error

    /usr/bin/ld: frame.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XGetWindowAttributes'
    /usr/bin/ld: note: 'XGetWindowAttributes' is defined in DSO /lib64/libX11.so.6 so try adding it to the linker command line
    /lib64/libX11.so.6: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
    collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: ***  Error 1

    make: ***  Error 1
    make: Leaving directory `/home/Jose/xvidcap-1.1.7'
