Builder Script Errors

Hi everybody and salute to all of my masters,

I have a c++ compile problem on Ubuntu 7.10 with "KdenLive Video Editing" Application. I'm a newbie programmer on Linux c++, so I can't solve the problem myself. I googled for all related topics but can't found any solution.

This application will be very useful for my video editing school project. I must to make some small changes on this application and compile it. So firstly, I decided to compile the original code, after it works, I will start to change some codes and recompile it. But I can't compile the original yet.

Ok, here is the what I did and what is my problem:

I read all dependencies on

Wiki Pages and install all of them, including KDE environment and lots of extra dev packages. So, I found a builder script:

This builder script is downloading some other dependencies (ffmpeg, mlt, mlt++) and KdenLive from SVN, and compiling all of them. Everything looking almost right until it come the last part of the script: compiling the KdenLive.

I'm getting some warnings like below before compiling KdenLive:
flvenc.c:131: warning: ‘videocodecid’ may be used uninitialized in this function
And some warnings like this:
nutdec.c:823: warning: passing argument 3 of ‘av_tree_find’ from incompatible pointer type
Like this:
rgb2rgb_template.c:274: warning: cast discards qualifiers from pointer target type
And like this:
yuv2rgb.c:397: warning: unused variable ‘Y’

But I think the warnings are not very important, aren't they?

And finally, this is the final error that stops the compile process:

I said "OK"! I will try another way. And I read the INSTALL file that comes with KdenLive SVN package.

So I run the command:
sudo cmake .
Ok, no warning and no error. Next step:
sudo make
I saw some warnings again, like these:

[  0%] Generating avfile.moc.cpp
/home/alphan/kdenlive/kdenlive/avfile.h:0: Warning: No relevant classes found. No output generated.
[ 10%] Generating kdenlivesplash.moc.cpp

And finally it is start to scan and gave an error:

So, I'm here now. Is it possible that I'm using a wrong compiler? Or what can it be?
Any suggestion would acceptable. I will wait front of the monitor for your reply.

Thank you.

is it now working with last svn versions of all ?

which compiler do you have ?


the scritp you are using is out of date. Try the one attached to this post:


or go here an try this other version: ... live-devel

Both should work if you have all necessary dependencies installed (except MLT & ffmpeg that are updated and installed by the script).
