6. June 2005: gmerlin-dependencies and gmerlin-all-in-one fixed
There was a tiny bug in both packages, which caused compilation to fail on some systems. If you don't want to download the huge files again, edit the file tools/get_directory.sh in each package and change the second line from
find -name '*?' -type d -maxdepth 1
to
find -name '[^.]*' -type d -maxdepth 1
Furthermore, if you install gmerlin-all-in-one into the default directory (/usr/local), you might need to set the enviroment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH before:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
It turns out, that you need a quite recent linux distribution, also because the dependencies require some features not found in older distributions.
