Installation of XviD

[Note]

Note

This package tarball expands to xvidcore, not the expected xvidcore-1.3.7.

Install XviD by running the following commands:

cd build/generic &&
sed -i 's/^LN_S=@LN_S@/& -f -v/' platform.inc.in &&

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

sed -i '/libdir.*STATIC_LIB/ s/^/#/' Makefile &&
make install &&

chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libxvidcore.so.4.3 &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/xvidcore-1.3.7/examples &&
install -v -m644 ../../doc/* /usr/share/doc/xvidcore-1.3.7 &&
install -v -m644 ../../examples/* \
    /usr/share/doc/xvidcore-1.3.7/examples

Command Explanations

sed -i 's/^LN_S=@LN_S@/& -f -v/' platform.inc.in: Fix error during make install if reinstalling or upgrading.

sed -i '/libdir.*STATIC_LIB/ s/^/#/' Makefile: This command disables installing the static library.
