     19== Switches ==
     20There are a number of build switches, which you can see with:
     21{{{
     22./setup.py --help
     23}}}
     24[[BR]]
     25
     26Many of those switches are related to [/wiki/Encodings picture encodings].
     27On some platforms with older versions of libraries, it is possible, preferable and often mandatory to build static versions of the codecs. (see "{{{--with-static*}}}" flags)

     31There are a number of [/browser/xpra/trunk/src/patches patches in the source tree] that may need to be applied to build on some platforms to deal with library or tools compatibility.
     32
     33In particular, many Debian versions require the "{{{old-libav*}}}" patches.
