This page describes how to build Cinelerra on a brand spanking new Gutsy box, and tested with Cinelerra-CV subversion revision 1036.

Shmmax

Linux usually has an issue with memory allocation, whereby you get a weird warning about shmmax.

As a workaround for the current boot session, issue the following command as root:

echo "0x7fffffff" >/proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

The above workaround does not survive a reboot. A permanent fix is to add the following line to /etc/sysctl.conf:

kernel.shmmax = 2147483647

To do this, open a terminal (KMenu->System->Konsole), then type :

cd /etc
sudo kate sysctl.conf

Then enter your password if sudo asks for it. Finally, just copy & paste the line into kate.

Dependencies

In previous versions of Ubuntu, there was a reliance on external repositories, and a few other packages that you had to build yourself. Fortunately, this no longer seems necessary. The following packages should be sufficient (there may be the stray unnecessary package - but you might as well install everything anyway) to build Cinelerra from a fresh install of Gutsy:

g++
git-core
cogito
subversion
automake
libtool
nasm
x11proto-xf86vidmode-dev
libxv-dev
libxxf86vm-dev
libogg-dev
libvorbis-dev
libtheora-dev
libopenexr-dev
libdv-dev
libpng12-dev
libjpeg62-dev
libtiff4-dev
libfreetype6-dev
libsndfile1-dev
uuid-dev
libasound2-dev
libavutil-dev
libmpeg3-dev
libavcodec-dev
libx264-dev
libfaac-dev
libmjpegtools-dev
fftw3
fftw3-dev
liba52-0.7.4-dev
liblame-dev
libfaad2-dev
libesd0-dev
libiec61883-dev
libavc1394-dev
texi2html
texinfo

The quickest way to install the dependencies is save them in a file like "apts", and then issue the following command as root:

xargs apt-get install -y <apts

Downloading, building and running

You don't need root privileges to perform the following.

You can download the latest version of Cinelerra by typing:

svn checkout svn://svn.skolelinux.org/cinelerra/trunk/hvirtual

Then

cd hvirtual
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install

>>> I had some problems with the procedure above and had to do a few extra things. Here is my whole procedure (didnt replace the original in case not everyone needs to do what I did) :

cd hvirtual
./autogen.sh
./configure
touch po/de.gmo
touch po/es.gmo
touch po/eu.gmo
touch po/fr.gmo
touch po/it.gmo
touch po/pt_BR.gmo
touch po/sl.gmo
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

cd libmpeg3/video
nasm -f elf reconmmx.s -o reconmmx.o
mkdir .libs
cp reconmmx.o .libs/

(above solution originally suggested here)<<<

You can run Cinelerra by typing

cinelerra

or start it from

Applications > Sound & Video > Cinelerra

>>> Mine was in Multimedia (not Sound & Video). <<<

Enjoy!!!
