I'm compiling xpra 0.17.4 on Ubuntu 14.04 from source with
--without-vpx, but the vpx libraries are still being pulled in.
This produces a crash on 14.04 in reference to: https://www.xpra.org/trac/ticket/1084
Therefore it's impossible to get xpra 0.17.4 to run on 14.04.
0.16.0 (previous version I compiled) worked fine with
--without-vpx, and the vpx initialization was skipped properly.
Not sure why
--without-vpx is not working. The first time I compiled it I forgot to use
--without-vpx. I then installed it and realized the mistake. I ran
./setup.py clean and recompiled with
rm -rf build also before recompiling and installing, but makes no difference.
--without-vpx not working, and how do I disable it in 0.17.4?
Where in the code are the vpx libraries being initialized. Is there something I can comment out manually?
Manually commenting out all references to
xpra/codecs/loader.py disabled vpx properly.
No. This change is definitely NOT correct. Do not do this. Anyone reading this ticket should not follow these instructions.
You must have had some old build laying around. Make sure you clear everything before you install again and you will not have vpx included, and it will not be found:
rm -fr build dist/ install ./setup.py install --without-vpx --home=./install find install/ -name "*vpx*" PYTHONPATH=./install/lib64/python python ./install/lib64/python/xpra/codecs/loader.py
--without-vpx works as expected, as shown in comment:3.
