    Default Trying to compile Boxee on OpenSuse

    I just got the invitation from boxee and they only provide a .deb for ubuntu, so I must compile the program.
    After installing a lot of dependencies I got stuck on a dependecy that I don't have any idea where it can be.

    This is the error on the making process:
    Code:
    make -C xbmc/cores/VideoRenderers/VideoShaders 
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/gabo/Desktop/trunk/XBMC/xbmc/cores/VideoRenderers/VideoShaders'
    make[1]: Nothing to be done for `lib'.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gabo/Desktop/trunk/XBMC/xbmc/cores/VideoRenderers/VideoShaders'
    Where I can find those "VideoRenders". I'm getting crazy trying to find it with no success. Any help is appreciated.
    Btw I'm running Gnome and I have invitations for anyone interested. We must build an rpm for this.

    I'm afraid I don't see an error... it said "Nothing to be done"...

    I suppose I'd have to join to download the source...

    Please Sir, may I have an invitation? I'm at 'lornix@lornix.com'

    {Chuckle} Nice how they tried to obscure the google.analytics request...
    didn't work.. but nice.

    And the 'autocomplete="off"' in the login form is just mean...

    Supposed to be the 'next best thing' ? hmmm. Sure is pretty.

    And just a thought... but why not ask about Boxee errors on the Boxee
    forums? Strange...

    I already post the problem on the boxee forums but seems like nobody
    knows about it.

    I'll send you the invitation so you can download the source. I just paste the part of the compilation that causes the problem because this post has word limit.
    I'm sure its a dependency problem.

    Before I click on anything... What is it you're compiling?

    From Boxee's site, they state that Boxee doesn't support ANY compiling from
    source. If anything, you're compiling the (huge!) open source xbmc subsystem,
    upon which Boxee is *based*.

    So you CAN'T compile it. At least can't compile Boxee's product. You CAN
    compile xbmc... but that's not Boxee.

    Looks like it's going to be a proprietary product. I'd rather not. Thank
    you though.

    If you wish to try the Ubuntu .deb's on your system, there *ARE* applications
    which can convert .deb files to .tar.gz and .rpm

    I think 'alien' is the name of one. You might try that, as it would enable
    you to convert it to something you could deal with. Available through YaST.

    Do remember that Ubuntu/Debian linux systems are not always *entirely*
    binary compatible with openSuSE linux systems... Alien may not produce a
    workable result.

    Oh, and I think you violated Items 4, 5 and 6 from the Boxee Evaluation
    Agreement... they read like "Fight Club" Rules...."Don't tell anyone about
    the Product, the Product doesn't exist, and if anyone asks, there IS no
    Product"

    I'd quote it, but you're not allowed to tell anyone about the Evaluation
    Agreement either, since it TOO doesn't exist. (I never clicked it though,
    does that count?)

    Fun!!

    Take Care now,

    Loni
