VLC media player without AltiVec

Postby xeno74 » Thu Jun 01, 2017 11:35 am

Hi All,

The default VLC doesn't work on the X5000. I think the problem is the AltiVec support of the default VLC. I try to compile VLC without AltiVec.

  1. Code: Select all
    git clone git://git.videolan.org/vlc.git
  2. Code: Select all
    cd vlc
  3. Code: Select all
    ./bootstrap
  4. Code: Select all
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ --disable-altivec --enable-static
    (Maybe you have to install a lot of missing packages because of dependencies and run the configure command again)

    libvlc configuration
    --------------------
    version : 3.0.0-git
    system : linux
    architecture : powerpc64
    optimizations : yes
    vlc aliases : cvlc rvlc qvlc svlc nvlc

  5. Code: Select all
    make

**** Work in progress ****

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Unfortunately VLC doesn't work. I have to figure out why.

Vlc has issues with Qt. If you use a distro that makes use of qt in specific places then the combination might affect vlc. The solution on LXQt was to disable some tiny features of the taskbar. You should also check the window manager.
