Kubuntu 8.04 KDE4 building problem [Resolved]

Running Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE4 but the packages are out of date (KDEnlive is from December 2007, that is too old for me!)

Using the script here


I am able to successfully compile FFMPEG it looks like, but I get stuck when it comes to MLT. Here is my terminal output:

My source and build directories are "/home/eljefe/kdenlive080412/src/" and "..../build" and I don't want anything installed system-wide. Anyone having these issues or have suggestions for fixing them? A google search for "factory.c:34:22: error: avformat.h: No such file or directory" brings up this *buntu, MLT-specific thread but I don't understand what it is saying:


Additionally, does anyone know how we could make *buntu packages of these so that users wouldn't have to build this every time to get a newer version of these apps than the *buntu devs provide?

I've been able to successfully build with Espinosa's updated 'classic' script, located here:


So consider this issue closed. Espinosa, thank you for your commitment to the community forums and the application!
