I've packaged libx264 version 0.83 and the current in Synaptic is versioned 1.65, and thus I can't update it. Can synaptic be told to force the package?
It is possible to either force the installation or use epochs here locally.
I've built two packages, one that replaces the current x264-1.65 (with libx264-65) and the latest version of the library libx264-83. Needed to to this to make them live side-by-side.
The two srpms are in dropbox.
I tried the epoch strategy but ended up thinking that this approach is 'not nice' so I just wonder if/how the package can be dealt with. A great deal of programs depend on libx264.so.65.
I'm currently updating/repackaging the dependencies but will wait with this until I know how to handle this package.
The new packaging of x264 uses the version number as part of the rpm name, and let different versions live side-by-side.
BTW. can't compile Cinelerra, looks like the code is from 2007, is there anyone using this at all? Got a fresh version from Git - this does not compile either. Git also don't tell what revision the downloaded source is at, so annoying.
Finally, does anyone know the command to find the srpm from the name of the rpm? I can't find the srpms for these packages:
mythTV 0.22 is ready for testing, but need this X264 sorted out,
