compile XMMS2

Recommended Posts

So this will hopefully explain a bit on how to install xmms2. First for the bare min you need the following things installed. I'm doing this on a slackware-current install so things are always pretty current for me


* Python (http://www.python.org/) (>=2.2.1)
* SCons (http://www.scons.org/) (>= 0.96.90)
* GLib (http://www.gtk.org/) (>= 2.6.0)
* SQLite (http://www.sqlite.org) (>= 3.2.6)


So right off the bat.. i know i need to install SCons.. most likely you will also. So lets do that first


download and extract it


wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/scons/scons-0.96.1.tar.gz
tar zxfv scons-0.96.1.tar.gz 
cd scons-0.96.1


Now lets build and install it. You will need to install it as root


python setup.py build
python setup.py install


Now I also needed the sqlite libraries and headers installed


So lets download it and extract it


wget http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-3.3.4.tar.gz
tar zxfv sqlite-3.3.4.tar.gz 
cd sqlite-3.3.4


Now lets compile and install it.


./configure --prefix=/usr
make install


Now lets download xmms2


wget http://surfnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/xmms2/xmms2-0.2DrCox.tar.bz2 
tar xfj xmms2-0.2DrCox.tar.bz2 
cd xmms2-0.2DrCox


Now lets install it


scons PREFIX=/usr
scons PREFIX=/usr install


now you can run xmms2d and then xmms2
