[mythtv-users] ld: cannot find -lXvMCNVIDIA

Thanks, I ended up using the following configure command:

./configure --compile-type=release --cpu=i686 --tune=i686 --enable-mmx --prefix=/usr/local --libdir-name=lib --enable-xvmc --enable-xvmc-vld --enable-xvmc-pro --enable-xvmc-opengl --enable-opengl-vsync --enable-opengl-video --enable-libfftw3

I'm curious, what benefits do you derive from using Axel Thimm's drivers?

Is there a specific reason why you're overriding XvMC autodetection? Axel
Thimm's MythTV RPMs seem to use the XvMC wrapper, which then in turn is
configured by /etc/X11/XvMCConfig to use libXvMCNVIDIA.so.

Try something like:

./configure --compile-type=release --cpu=i686 --tune=i686 --enable-mmx
--prefix=/usr --libdir-name=lib --x11-path=/usr/include
--enable-joystick-menu --enable-lirc --enable-ivtv --enable-firewire
--enable-dvb --dvb-path=/usr/include/v4l/ --enable-audio-oss
--enable-audio-alsa --enable-audio-arts --enable-audio-jack --enable-x11
--enable-xrandr --enable-xv --enable-xvmc --enable-xvmc-vld
--enable-xvmc-pro --enable-xvmc-opengl --enable-opengl-vsync
--disable-directfb --enable-libfaac --enable-libfftw3 --enable-fribidi
--enable-opengl-video --enable-ffmpeg-pthreads

If that flag is being picked up automagically, then it ought to have a
-L/usr/lib/nvidia, I reckon. Personally, I use Axel Thimm's nvidia driver
packages in preference to Livna's.
