Hi - I tried searching for other reports of this on the forum but did not find anything matching....
Basically, I cannot compile Bombono on an Arch Linux system due to a problem with the libavformat/url.h file that is included by src/mgui/ffviewer.cpp. The actual error text is:
src/mgui/ffviewer.cpp:41:58: fatal error: libavformat/url.h: No such file or directory
On searching for an answer to this, I came across this http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue ... ?id=118986
which gives a clue. The same issue has been reported on Chromium, the cause is the fact that the url.h header file is not public (or is no longer public), so applications should not be using it.
I checked the Arch package for 'ffmpeg' and sure enough the url.h header file is not there. Given that Arch is a 'rolling release', it has picked up the latest 'ffmpeg' before other distributions. I would imagine other distributions will also be using this version in the coming months, so I would expect this problem will be seen there too.
Any clues on how to fix this?
