#728 closed defect (wontfix)

MythTV doesn't have support for finding packages in non-standard locations

Reported by: Kevin Atkinson <kevin.mythtv@…> Owned by: Nigel
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.18.1
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

I have lirc and mp3lame installed in "/opt/mm". In order to configure and compile MythTV I had to hack configure and settings.pro. I tried using "--extra-cflags " but configure was still unable to find lirc.

Also, the test for xinit failed since on Ubuntu the binary is not in "/usr/bin/xinit" not "/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit"

For your reference I am attaching the chnages I needed to make to built MythTV.

Kevin, installing software in /opt/mm isn't something that other MythTV users are likely to do, so adding this path in is probably not sensible. <BR> 1) The configure script does search in /etc/ld.so.conf for library paths, though. Is /opt/mm/lirc/lib in there? <BR> 2) The xinit program is no longer used to detect if X11 is on the machine. Try a more recent version of configure to see if it works on your system. <BR> Adding a more generic "search here" argument to configure may be useful, though (e.g. on Mac OS X that has nothing similar to /etc/ld.so.conf). Isaac, Daniel, any thoughts?

Nigel, a generic --extra-include-path would work for me.

So does that mean you have no interest in adding support for finding software in non-standard locations?

And, no I do not have /opt/mm/lib in ld.so.conf. Nor should I need to.

How am I not "understanding English"?

Well, I think completely misreading two previous comments counts as not being able to understand English.

Yes I guess I misread them. Sorry.

So you mark it as 'won't fix' due to a mistake I made?

Fine. But that seams's like a stupid reason.
