Installation of GStreamer Base Plug-ins

[Note]

Note

If you need a plugin for a given dependency, that dependency needs to be installed before this application.

Install GStreamer Base Plug-ins by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --with-package-name="GStreamer Base Plugins 1.8.2 BLFS" \
            --with-package-origin="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/" &&
make

To test the results, issue: make check.

[Note]

Note

When installing, the Makefile does some additional linking. If you do not have Xorg in /usr, the LIBRARY_PATH variable needs to be defined for the root user. If using sudo to assume root, use the -E option to pass your current environment variables for the install process.

Now, as the root user:

make install
