Being from old school Debian :) I knew that there was some ~easy way to install Handbrake through the deb-src of the older version of the source repository. Add this to your /etc/apt/source.list or /etc/apt/source.list.d/stebbins-handbrake-releases-precise.list
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu oneiric mainThen run 'sudo apt-get update' or 'sudo aptitude update' to update the local software database.
Follow these steps that I got from Debian's Manual:
- Now, first get the source package:
- apt-get source foo
- and change to the source tree:
- cd foo-*
- Then install needed build-dependencies (if any):
- sudo apt-get build-dep foo
- Then create a dedicated version of your own build (so that you won't get confused later when Debian itself releases a new version)
- dch -l local 'Blah blah blah'
- And finally build your package
- debuild -us -uc
- If everything worked out fine, you should now be able to install your package by running
- sudo dpkg -i ../*.deb
Worked perfectly. I was having trouble building from source (could only get command line to work properly). This saved me a lot of time and frustration.ReplyDelete
