Motion with mysql on x86_64


Hi I have the same problem that was seen in and i have been taking a look in the mailarchive without getting further on that solution.

Im testing FC5 test3 on a 64bit PC, Mysql is installed from RPM's and is working but on FC 64bit many libs is to find in/usr/lib64/ and i think thats the problem.

As in the closed error report i have tryed to point the libs out for configure and i have tryed to place the lib paths in + ldconfig but no matter what i try configure claims that it can not find libmysqlclient.x but they are there in /usr/lib64/mysql.

I will not post this as an bug for as long the Fedora version im using is a test but i'm afraid that the problem is not in Fedora but in the configure script but i can't figure out why og where?

Any sugestions what goes wrong or what to post here to get to the solution?



Motion version: 3.2.4 + latest
ffmpeg version: 0.4.9pre1 i think
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql
Server OS: Fedora Core 5 Test3, Kernel 2.6.1x x86_64

What it the full path for mysql.h and*/*libmysqlclient.a ?

I've check configure and it doesn't look in autodectection method in /usr/lib64/ , anyway if you pass --with-mysql= parameter to configure it should work , so please try to do it and report if it work .

That looked okay now.

LDFLAGS:   -L/usr/local/lib

I had a little trouble first as i could see that configure did not change but after manual delete of configure and config.status it worked. The only thing that i noticed was this:

gcc -g -O2 -DHAVE_FFMPEG -I/usr/local/include/ffmpeg -DHAVE_MYSQL -I /usr/include/mysql -DTYPE_32BIT="int" -DHAVE_BSWAP  ..
..  -Wall -DVERSION=\"3.2.5\" -D_REENTRANT -Dsysconfdir=\"/usr/local/etc\"   -c -o picture.o picture.c
picture.c: In function ‘overlay_smartmask’:
picture.c:407: warning: value computed is not used

But that has nothing to with this stuff i'm sure wink

configure, make, make install is okay - motion is working okay but i have not tried if motion is working with mysql as i do not know how to test that, i just didn't like that motion couldn't find mysql.

If you want me to test if it does work with mysql i need to know what fields and structures to make tex. motion.dist.conf working or another tiny test config for netcams.

Was this fix made special for this case or can the result hopefully be used generaly so configure works on both normal and 64 bit systems?


-- TWikiGuest - 04 Mar 2006

To test mysql just take a look to the guide :

This fix i actually fixed for 64 bit systems , so i've included it in motion svn trunk.

Thanks for the report wink

Well everything looks fine now, also latest daily after the autoconfig thing.

Thanks. smile
