Install libdv by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --disable-xv \ --disable-static && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
make install && install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/libdv-1.0.0 && install -v -m644 README* /usr/share/doc/libdv-1.0.0
parameter is required if an X Window
System is not installed. It also prevents configure testing for
libXv which is only used for an
obsolete program playdv that will not be built
with current linux headers and
would also need other obsolete dependencies.
--disable-static: This switch prevents
the static libraries being installed.
