Please provide full instruction on how to compile handbrake for Debian based linux mint (LMDE3)

Post by webstuff » Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:42 am

Description of problem or question:

There is no source compilation for non PPA method. I downloaded the source from Handbrake's web site and proceeded to compile but I get error. Your web site should provide detailed instructions (and up to date) on how to compile these for "other linux" distros. I can't use flatpak because I want max performance on this old pc.




Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

On the machine where I have LMDE 3 installed, I downloaded (from the Handbrake website) and decompressed the source files and thought I would do the usual to compile:
sudo ./configure
cd ./build
sudo make
sudo make install

However, I got this from sudo ./configure:
probe: host tuple...(pass) x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
compute: available architectures...(pass) x86_64
find: ar...(pass) /usr/bin/ar
find: cp...(pass) /bin/cp
find: gcc...(pass) /usr/bin/gcc
find: gmake...(pass) /usr/bin/make
find: gm4...(pass) /usr/bin/m4
find: mkdir...(pass) /bin/mkdir
find: gpatch...(pass) /usr/bin/patch
find: rm...(pass) /bin/rm
find: ranlib...(pass) /usr/bin/ranlib
find: strip...(pass) /usr/bin/strip
find: gtar...(pass) /bin/tar
find: nasm...(fail) not found
find: autoconf...(pass) /usr/bin/autoconf
find: automake...(pass) /usr/bin/automake
find: cmake...(fail) not found
: name[0] = cmake
ERROR: unable to continue; configure stop.




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.2.0


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

LMDE 3 (linux mint debian edition 3) available to download at the linux mint site. Note that this version is Debian based.

Have you even tried the flatpak? There is no reason it shouldn't perform as well as "native" on any system. If it's not performing the same I would like to know about it so I can investigate the cause. The only performance issues I have heard about with flatpak involve access to things like OpenGL or Vulkan which HandBrake does not use.

To answer you question though, full instructions for multiple linux distros are here:
