Xpra: Ticket #613: {x264,ffmpeg,libvpx,libwep}-xpra packages

As we discussed on IRC, the idea is to have xpra specific packages for x264, ffmpeg, libvpx, and libwebp that do not conflict with packages provided by 3rd party repos, such as rpmfusion.

Libraries get installed in /usr/lib64/xpra. Development files get installed in /usr/share/include/xpra

This allows xpra-x264 and x264 (rpmfusion) to coexist without conflict.

In the xpra spec, we must set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to include /usr/lib64/xpra/pkgconfig and pass rpath to the linker.

# set pkg_config_path for xpra video libs
CFLAG=S-O2 LDFLAGS=-Wl,-rpath=%{_libdir}/xpra python setup.py build --with-opengl %{strict_build_args} %{sound_build_args} %{ffmpeg_build_args} %{vpx_build_args} %{x264_build_args} %{opencl_build_args} %{webp_build_args} %{server_build_args}

I have built these packages against EL5, EL6, Fedora 19, and Fedora 20. I tested xpra builds against these packages and tested on EL5, EL6 and Fedora 20.

I have attached the following specs: x264-xpra, ffmpeg-xpra, libvpx-xpra, libwebp-xpra, and xpra.

The xpra spec is included to provide context on my build procedure. The changes to the SPEC are being discussed in #606.

These spec files should replace those in trunk/rpmbuild/{ffmpeg, x264, libvpx, libwebp}

For F19 and F20 we should probably depend on upstreams version of libvpx and libwebp (as these are likely to be fairly new). For el5 and el6 we should depend on our own.

Sorry about the delay. Looks good.

I've replaced all the lib* spec files with the updated ones in r6911, also bumped ffmpeg to version 2.2.4 and x264 to 20140719.

(maybe we can find a way to trim down ffmpeg further? no need for postproc, swresample or avfilter..)

I'm holding off on the xpra.spec changes for now as I need to test the build thoroughly first.

The good bits:

The not so good bits:

We'll follow up on the xpra spec file in #606. Bar the python-nose, I think we can close this ticket?

Any idea why the ffmpeg debuginfo packages end up really small? (2 to 6KB - see beta area for examples)

After successfully build testing everything, in r7192 I've added specfiles for:

Wasted too much time on the nose vs sphinx vs lz4 madness, ended up disabling the tests to get going again on centos: r7200.

No immediate ideas. I built the latest ffmpeg-x264 using the spec in trunk and I got a debug package that was about 24KB and contains about 6 files.

I didn't see any debug packages for el6, but the el7 xpra-x264 debug packages were empty.

Can I close this or is there something we can do about the empty debug packages?
