more script failure [SOLVED]


It seems that something has reverted in recent invocations of the build script. I'm unable to complete a successful build on my Debian Squeeze and my Ubuntu 10.04 systems, the script fails here :

g++ -I/home/dlphilp/kdenlive/20120620/include -Wall -DPIC -DUSE_MMX -DUSE_SSE -DUSE_SSE2 -g -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -fPIC -pthread -Wall -DPIC -DUSE_MMX -DUSE_SSE -DUSE_SSE2 -g -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -fPIC -pthread -I../.. -Wall -DPIC -DUSE_MMX -DUSE_SSE -DUSE_SSE2 -g -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -fPIC -pthread -I/usr/include/qt3 -I/usr/include/kde -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I/usr/include/libexif -Wno-deprecated -c -o kdenlivetitle_wrapper.o kdenlivetitle_wrapper.cpp

I asked friends and searched online forums on what people talk about with regards to effective skin care. They do have some effective inputs but all of them say the same thing – for the anti wrinkle serum or cream to take effect, you would need to apply it daily for at least 2 months. Well, frankly I don’t have that much patience and given my job, I can’t go on an extended leave if I want to go under the knife.

Marketing Using SEO Optimized Articles

Seo Company India
SEO stands for search engine optimization. search engine optimization articles are documents that are written to improve the visibility of web pages to the target audience without having to pay. This is because the earlier a given web page appears in a search engine then the greater the chance that people will visit the site. There are different types of search engines such as image, local, and academic among others. SEO optimized articles are written to target a particular search tool or engine. However sometimes you may want to target more than one search tool to increase the chances of your web page being visited by the target audience.

Git tagging enhancement request

Currently there is only a single git tag of 0.9 for all 0.9.x releases.

Request each release have it's own tag as in...

0.9.2 for current release.

0.9.3b for pre/beta of 0.9.3 and then 0.9.3 when it releases.

This makes pulling a certain release very easy.

Make chugs along fine until it gets to this:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/', needed by `src/kdenlive'. Stop.
make[1]: *** [src/CMakeFiles/kdenlive.dir/all] Error 2

I am attempting to build mlt 0.7.8 from source on SUSE 11.4 64-bit. Configuration finds all required dependencies, and make chugs along until it gets to this:

Build script failure MLT


I am a new user of Kdenlive on Fedora 14. As there seems to be some serious problems with the binary from the Fedora 14 repositories, I decided to see if I could build Kdenlive myself.

Environment is 32 bit Fedora 14 on an Intel i7 machine

I followed the directions linked to at the sticky at the top of this page. When I ran the build script, it exited with an error while building MLT (I think) I am no programmer. Here is a clip of the error message:

v_mmx.o -L/home/fred/kdenlive/20120529/lib -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--as-needed -L../../framework -lmlt -lpthread -lm -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--as-needed `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0` `pkg-config --libs gdk-pixbuf-2.0` -lexif -lm `pkg-config --libs pangoft2`

compiling kdenlive 0.9 fails on nl-handbook

When I try to compile kdenlive 0.9 from source (for packaging purposes btw) I get an error while building the handbooks:

[ 1%] Built target pt_BR-handbook
[ 1%] Generating index.cache.bz2
index.docbook:21: parser error : Entity 'Ronald.Stroethoff' not defined
index.docbook:644: parser error : Entity 'vertaling.ronald' not defined

build script fails with "KImageCache not found" error SOLVED


I searched Google before posting and learned that this issue was previously reported by a user trying the build script on Ubuntu 10.04. I'm trying the script on a Debian system (AVLinux) and have met the same problem, likely due to having KDE 4.4 installed. Was a fix ever prepared for the Ubuntu user, and if so, where can I find it ?
