Comment 1 Damian Kołkowski 2011-03-30 08:30:13 UTC
So for now with 2.6.38 kernel, we have to compile it without video flag.

USE="-video" emerge media-libs/mediastreamer
Comment 2 Someone Else Who Won't Be Here 2011-04-07 13:38:52 UTC
I'm seeing a couple things here:

1) having media-libs/libv4l installed always makes mediastreamer think it should support v4l1
   a: libv4l provides /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libv4l1.pc or /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/libv4l1.pc
   b: mediastreamer checks for libv4l1 using pkgconfig during configure
         if it finds it: checking for LIBV4L1... yes 
         if it doesn't find it: checking for LIBV4L1... no
               verified that file is checked by moving libv4l.pc and rechecking configure

2) the autotools for media-libs/mediastreamer are bad and don't produce a correct src/Makefile
   a. config.log show v4l2 support is found and v4l1 is not:
          # grep libv4l ./config.log
          $ ./configure --prefix=/usr --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --htmldir=/usr/share/doc/mediastreamer-2.6.0/html --datadir=/usr/share/mediastreamer --libdir=/usr/lib64 --disable-strict --enable-external-ortp --disable-dependency-tracking --disable-artsc --enable-alsa --disable-pulseaudio --disable-macsnd --disable-macaqsnd --disable-debug --disable-gsm --disable-ipv6 --disable-jack --disable-oss --disable-portaudio --enable-speex --enable-theora --enable-libv4l --enable-video --enable-x11
          configure:19235: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libv4l2"
          configure:19251: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libv4l2"
          configure:19310: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libv4l1"
          Package libv4l1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
          Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libv4l1.pc'
          No package 'libv4l1' found
          configure:19326: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "libv4l1"
          Package libv4l1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
          Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libv4l1.pc'
          No package 'libv4l1' found
          No package 'libv4l1' found

   b. references to videodev.h are found in the correct files:

          mediastreamer-config.h is included many places, including src/
          configure scripts doing checks act properly and mediastreamer-config.h has:
                  /* Define to 1 if you have the <linux/videodev.h> header file. */
                  /* #undef HAVE_LINUX_VIDEODEV_H */
                  /* Define to 1 if you have the <linux/videodev2.h> header file. */
                  #define HAVE_LINUX_VIDEODEV2_H 1

   c. src/ should be testing whether v4l1 and/or v4l2 is supported, but doesnt

          if BUILD_V4L
          libmediastreamer_la_SOURCES+=msv4l.c msv4l2.c

          should be
          if BUILD_V4L
             if  <some test on a variable for v4l1 support>
             if  <some test on a variable for v4l2 support>

          similar tests should be run for other things so that the src/Makefile doesn't include filenames in the build that shouldn't be there:

          line 56:  am__append_14 = msv4l.c msv4l2.c
          line 133: (as part of am__libmediastreamer_la_SOURCES_DIST) has msv4l.c
          line 152: am__objects_14 = msv4l.lo msv4l2.lo
          line 583: #include ./$(DEPDIR)/msv4l.Plo

I successfully built media-libs/mediastreamer-2.6.0 by hacking around the problems: moving the libv4l1.pc file and editing /src/Makefile to remove the msv4l.* parts (leaving in the msv4l2.* ones) but it was just a workaround and not a proper patch/solution since ebuild compile did not work with it.  Dug into some autotools manuals to try to create a better fix, but I'm not there yet.
Comment 3 hirakendu 2011-04-09 05:52:56 UTC
Attaching a working ebuild (and patch) for mediastreamer-2.7.3 that works with linux-headers-2.6.38. Emerges fine, not sure if it works though.

Comment 7 Ted Rodgers 2011-04-09 09:50:26 UTC
Thanks Peter and hirakendu.
Comment 8 Juergen Rose 2011-04-09 11:17:22 UTC
Hi Peter and hirakendu,

thanks for the patch, which worked for me. But it seems that the patch is still not included in the mediastreamer-2.7.3.ebuild.
Comment 9 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-04-09 14:07:13 UTC
(In reply to comment #8)

It is splitted in two parts:
1. v4l automagic patch which is included (mediastreamer-2.7.3-v4l-automagic.patch)
2. Don't build parts depend on linux/videodev.h. This is done in ebuild with the following: sed -i -e 's:msv4l.c::' src/ || die
