compiling xvidcap-1.1.7/ not found

  • Hi,

    i use UBUNTU 8.10 desktop AMD64 on a ASROCK 780 FUllHD with build in ATI Radeon 3200 HD grafic card and the lastest ATI driver for that.

    I tryed xvidcap 1.1.2 or something (the one that comes with ubuntu 8.10) but i crashed.
    So i donloaded the xvidcap-1.1.7.tar.gz   Platform-Independent and wanted to compile and install it.

    Since i am wuite new to Linux and Ubuntu i read a few formus and the Errors discussed here.
    What i did is:

    a) downloaded the tar.gz
    b) sudo tar xfvz xvidcap-1.1.7.tar.gz
    c) cd xvidcap-1.1.7/
    d) sudo checkinstall ./
    e) created the DOC packages and wanted to go on

    But he prints out: /var/tmp/tmp.Tmeev32230/ 4: /media/bu/Downloads/xvidcap-1.1.7/ not found

    So someone mentioned to start the thing not from the downloded home directory but from / so i did it , too but the same result.

    Now when i look at the  ..../xvidcap-1.1.7/ directory i can see two similar files

    install  and install-sh but not

    What should i do noe to make the wonderful peace of software to work on my super PC ????? ;)

    PS: To the coders of this software: GREAT JOB GUYS thanks a lot and i hope i can make it run on my box to come back and donate!
