    Avifile for Debian – Non Free (UPDATED)
    Submitted by locke on Tuesday, January 02, 2001 – 12:46
    Hi, I’ve packaged avifile for Potato. This package can play avi files (such as divx, asf, etc…) on Linux box using Windows dll.
    This is my first attempt to create debian packages, and due to this is completly unofficial. You can found the apt lines and other notes about this utility on my web page. I hope it will be usefull and please send me comments.
    UPDATED: This requires non-free, copyrighted DLLs to work. Legal issues are cloudy at best.

    It’s a little bodgy, but this works for me:

    export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libqt.so

    Good job, and good timing. That’s a program that just this morning I was trying to compile.

    I had just a few problems with the deb, though. It depends on the libqt2.2-mt package from rkrusty but I have libqt2.2 from woody installed. So I ripped open the deb and made a few changes to make it have different dependencies and the programs to be linked to libqt.so.2 rather than libqt-mt.so.2. I’ve uploaded the resulting package to my web page, here in case anybody else is having the same problem.

    I had used Ivan Moore’s kde packages, which seems to be official-semioficial KDE packages for potato.
    The principal site has the next apt-line:
    deb http://kde.tdyc.com potato main crypto optional qt1apps
    There are some mirrors, check this page for the nearest.
    I installed this package in a woody and it seems to have no problem.

    You have a potato libqt2.2 deb package at:

    Hi.

    I just installed your package along with the dependencies necessary. Running aviplay gives me the error message:
    aviplay: error while loading shared libraries: aviplay: undefined symbol: __ti9QStrIList

    I’m running unstable and downloaded the Windows dll’s via the package’s post-install. Any suggestions?

    TIA,

    Martijn

    It seems there are some library version problems. Probbaly the best solution
    is trying to rebuid the package in your system. I have no acces to any unstable system – so you have to try it yourself. It can be done semi automatically, so don’t worry.

    1. Add this line to you apt/sources.list:
      deb-src http://gul.uc3m.es/~locke/debian potato local
    2. You probably need the next dev packages: dpkg-dev, libqt-mt-dev,
      libsdl-dev, libc6-dev, make, gcc, could be any more I can’t remember now.
    3. Run “apt-get -b source avifile”. This will download avifile sources,
      extracts them and automatically build the package.

      If compilation fails saying can’t find xxxx file. you can try to search it on
      debian “http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages” page. Look at bottom for
      section “Search the Contents of the Latest Release” chose corectly your
      architecture/distribution. If your search for xxxx file, it will tell
      you the package it is included in.

    Good luck, and I hope it works.

    Thanks to Andres for this info. It worked for me (I’m running unstable). If you don’t want to compile the stuff yourself, you can also download a binary package for Debian unstable from
    http://www.win.tue.nl/~martijna/avifile_0.53-4_i386.deb

    Try to run “ldconfig” as root. And make sure you have “/usr/lib/index.html” in “/etc/ld.so.conf”. Well, this is a default, but check it anyway.
    If this doesn’t help send me an e-mail.

    I have this same problem and I’d appreciate it if any resolution to this problem was posted here.

    BTW, /usr/lib is automatically cached without putting it in /etc/ld.so.conf (just run ‘ldconfig -v’ each way if you want proof).

    Thanks.

    Great start! But, is this going to be one of those projects that never gets updated again?

    Well, there wasn’t changes on the official avifile page, so I have no changes either. Now I’m working on 0.6.0-beta2 version. Ihope it will be ready this weekend or earlier.
