To help any one else trying this, here is what I have had to do. Install Fedora with full dev tools, then install the following packages. Code: sudo yum install SDL* glew glew-devel libmad-devel tre tre-devel libogg libogg-devel libvorbis libvorbis-devel boost boost-devel bzip2-devel bzip2-libs fribidi* lzo lzo-devel mysql-libs mysql-devel jasper jasper-devel faac faac-devel enca enca-devel hal hal-devel hal-libs cmake gperf nasm Create this sym link: Code: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.15.0.0 /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so I also had to edit the following file from the latest svn (latest as of 40 minutes ago) XBMC/xbmc/utils/CharsetConverter.h from Code: #else #include #include #include #endif to Code: #else #include #include #include #endif So far, so good after all that. Hope that helps other Fedora users. find

I'm actually trying to compile XMBC on Fedora 9 and I'm struggling with the same problems. My experience on C is so old that we can say it's null but anyway, I don't give up. I did what you wrote down here and I managed to ./configure Of course I faced the same issue described above with XBMC/xbmc/utils/CharsetConverter.h and the other one. I read the message from AlTheKiller but I don't know how to sort this out so I changed the two .h files with vi. I knopw this is not correct but well... I told you I was not good at C. So here I am, I modified the two .h files and did make. Here comes a new issue with xbmc/utils/RegExp.h "pcre.h: No such file or directory" at the very beginning of the make process. So i vi-ed /xbmc/utils/CharsetConverter.h: from namespace PCRE { #ifdef _WIN32 #define PCRE_STATIC #include "lib/libpcre/pcre.h" #elif defined (__APPLE__) #include "lib/libpcre/pcre.h" #else #include #endif to namespace PCRE { #ifdef _WIN32 #define PCRE_STATIC #include "lib/libpcre/pcre.h" #elif defined (__APPLE__) #include "lib/libpcre/pcre.h" #else /*#include */ #include "lib/libpcre/pcre.h" #endif And I got further, it's still on the make process, but I just wanted to show you the progress with Fedora as I can't find anyone compiling this on Fedora. I'm glad I found that post :-) Just in case, I did a checkout 1 hour ago and it was the first one I did. The purpose of my post is not to fix the issues as I'm not capable of doing this, it's more like I want to point out the issues I have on Fedora. I understand you cannot check the compile process on Ubuntu, Suse, Debian, Fedora... so it might be good to have people telling the community how it is on several distros. PS: While I was writing this, the make process eventualy finished in error: /usr/bin/ccache g++ -MD -c -g -D_DEBUG -Wall -DDBUS_API_SUBJECT_TO_CHANGE -I/usr/include/dbus-1.0 -I/usr/lib/dbus-1.0/include -I/usr/include/hal -I/usr/include/lzo -D_LINUX -D_FILE_DEFINED -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DHAS_SDL_JOYSTICK -DHAS_XRANDR -D'SVN_REV="14729"' -DINSTALL_PATH="\"/usr/local/share/xbmc\"" -I. -I.. -I../linux -I../../guilib RegExp.cpp -o RegExp.o RegExp.cpp:30:18: error: pcre.h: No such file or directory make[1]: *** [RegExp.o] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory /home/Ludo/XBMC/xbmc/utils' make: *** [utils] Error 2 It took about 6 minutes to accomplish this on my E8300, I'm running Fedora 9, 2.6.25.11-97.fc9.i686 I'll put back the source files to what it was, go to sleep and then we'll see. I hope my 2 cents were useful in any way, but I have a doubt. Cheers find

However while running make install as root, I still had the same error with pcre.h so I vi-ed xbmc/utils/RegExp.cpp and did the same change I mentioned above. And then I make install as root user. And 5 minutes later...

Hope that helps someone! find
