xawtv 3.95 install problem

Post by mbill » Tue Jul 17, 2007 10:27 pm

I have been trying to install xawtv 3.95 in fedora 7, with what i believe is a successful zomeminder install.

from this prompt, [root@localhost ZoneMinder-1.22.3]#
i did the following.
wget http://dl.bytesex.org/releases/xawtv/xawtv-3.95.tar.gz
tar xvfz xawtv-3.95.tar.gz
cd xawtv-3.95
dir

from the dir listing i could see xawtv was there. I opened the README and it said.

You can install the programs (as root) with:
# make install

I then tried "make install" hit enter and received the following errors.

I have spent the last few hours searching these forums for any help in xawtv install but it looks like no one ever had a problem. Nor have i found a single instruction on how they did it.

Does anyone have an idea?

You will most likey find better help through their support:
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo ... linux-list

Building xawtv is outside the scope of this forum but,
If I had to guess I'd say it's not happy with the v4l drivers.
