Description Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-08 14:57:25 UTC
I updated quicktime4linux to 1.5.5, and solved an issue that causes transcode 
to fail to build. It is a headerfile issue (the quicktime dv.h is found 
first), about a header that quicktime4linux should not even install.

I don't understand this to be honest.  What's downport?
Comment 4 Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-23 02:58:03 UTC
I meant I applied the same fix to the old version of quicktime with less
checking as with the new libquicktime. The fix basically only installs what the
make install installs, so no libdv headers anymore as it conflicts with libdv
when building transcode
Comment 5 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-24 07:07:44 UTC
Paul, thanks for the ebuild.  I have added it to portage.  What I do not like
about this application is that there is no possibility of cross-compilation. 
That is just bad form.  Note, that I am blaming upstream for this.  Is there an
alternate library that we can use that actually uses configure and make?
Comment 6 Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-24 07:13:02 UTC
At the website of heroinewariours they say that they recommend the use of 
OpenQuicktime( instead of quicktime4linux, the problem is that
these libs are not entirely compatible and certain programs require one of them.

Closing the bug
