Thread: SDB Method for Building HandBrake Fails - No Checkinstall!

  1. #1

    Default SDB Method for Building HandBrake Fails - No Checkinstall!

    I am trying to build and install latest version of HandBrake (1.0.1) from tar file.
    I was able to configure and get all dependencies installed. Then compilation seemed to be OK but when I ran (as root) checkinstall there was no command "checkinstall" found.
    Tried to sort this out with Yast but no joy. Could it be that SDB is out of date?

    Of course. It depends on people like you to add the latest experiences

    Isn't there is README (or similar name file) in the tarball with instructions?

    IMHO you are long enough here to know that apart from your conclusions, we always want to see the computer facts to be able to draw our own conclusions. Thus please, the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt copied/pasted between CODE tags in a post.

    Henk your rebuke is accepted and once more I apologise. I have just a few hours at the weekend and posted purely from recollection of previous day having moved on to preparing to move from 42.1 to 42.1. Will complete that process, (which has stalled btw) and return to Handbrake. Sadly no installation instructions in the tarball and website instructions worthless.

    Hi
    Why not use the packman version?

    This is how it's built...
    https://pmbs.links2linux.de/package/....spec?expand=1

    I still use the 0.10.2 version here as it's more self contained...

    Hi Malcolm,
    I was using the packman version but had some issues and it did seem rather out of date so thought I would update. Back on it now. I downloaded the tarball and unpacked as usual. Alas no installation instructions.
    Ran ./configure in the extracted directory and a few dependencies were identified which I duly installed with yast.
    Then ran make which seemed to run OK.
    Went to build directory and ran make install as root. No joy. Tried checkinstall but seems that went out with the brown ball.

    Here is the result of make install:-
    Code:
    ibmserver2:/home/alastair/Downloads/HandBrake-1.0.1/build # make install
    /usr/bin/cp ./HandBrakeCLI /usr/local/bin/HandBrakeCLI
    /usr/bin/cp: cannot stat ‘./HandBrakeCLI’: No such file or directory
    ../test/module.rules:20: recipe for target 'test.install' failed
    make: *** [test.install] Error 1
    ibmserver2:/home/alastair/Downloads/HandBrake-1.0.1/build #
    There are a couple of log files which may have clues:-

    config.info.txt is as follows:-

    FWIW,

    About a year ago,
    I also tried to build Handbrake from source,
    After spending the better part of a day resolving issues, I still hadn't completely succeeded, and at that point felt that it was just better to use the Packman version.

    Hi Tsu,
    Yes I have reverted to the repo version for now. If even you with your knowledge and experience had problems building, what chance for me?

    I have, however, posted the problem on the HandBrake forum and have their attention. Just uploaded the text from my last attempt running make. File is 1.2MiB.
    Will post results if I get lucky.
    Regards,
    Budge

    Hi
    Is libdvdread-devel installed? I originally compiled handbrake way back
    ~2009 and worked with Pascal Blesser to get it on packman.

    If you look at the rpm spec file at all the build requires...
    pkgconfig(some_name) it's just shorthand for the devel package in most
    cases and uses the info from the pc file for linking, libs etc;
