LiVES - LiVES is a Video Editing System
CVSThe CVS version is the "bleeding edge" for those who like to LiVE dangerously.
The CVS version can be viewed/downloaded from Sourceforge.
These builds may or may not run or even compile, and if they do they may hang your X server or even worse... mostly it's OK though.
You have been warned!
LiVES CVS mini HOWTOFor debian/ubuntu users, you will need at least the following packages:
autoconf 2.57 or higher
automake1.9 or higher
Users of other distros will require similar packages
Various other packages are recommended: check the output of "./configure" (below) for more details.
You MUST checkout both LiVES and the LiVES plugins.
First do a CVS checkout of lives:
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/lives co lives
then do a CVS checkout of lives-plugins:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/lives co lives-plugins
./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make
You probably need to do the "make install" as root (or use sudo). Replace the "/usr" with wherever you want the CVS version's root to be.
After installing you should run ldconfig, again probably as root, in order to locate the newly installed libraries.
Before running lives, you may need to adjust the values of <prefix_dir> and/or <lib_dir> in ~/.lives if any components are installed in non-standard directories.
