[ SOLVED ] Need help finding libx264.
« on: July 10, 2014, 08:03:07 am »
I am trying to run a program called "Cinelerra" (found in the "testing" repository), and I get the following output (from terminal mode):

doctor:$ cinelerra
cinelerra: error while loading shared libraries: libx264.so.112: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Yes, I know that it was in the "untested" repository for about a week or so, but between the time that I first installed it and now, I ended up having to re-install things, and as a result, libx264 has since disappeared from the repositories  :(.

And the end result is:

doctor:$ slapt-get -u; slapt-get -i x264

slapt-get is a root utility.  Run is as root.

I tried that, and the end result was:

x264 is up to date.
0 upgraded, 0 reinstalled, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, 0 not upgraded.

And when I tried to run Cinelerra again (as a regular user), the end result was:

doctor:$ cinelerra
cinelerra: error while loading shared libraries: libx264.so.112: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Where did you get that package from?  The error indicates it was built against an older version of x264.  

FWIW, we have cinelerrra-cv version 2.2 on 7.0 "testing" repositories.  Remove your package and as root "slapt-get -u; slapt-get -i cinelerra-cv"

Thank you. After doing a bit of research into the matter, I come to find out that Cinelerra is only intended to run on 64-bit systems.
