Motion - Support Question 2006x 11x 17x 025432

undefined symbol: NeAACDecOpen when trying to run motion

Question

Every time I try to run motion I get an error message

I am using Slackware 11 with the 2.4.33 kernel. I installed a motion binary package from www.linuxpackages.net. It was version 3.2.7 of motion. Also when attempting to compile 3.2.7 I get a similar error msg.

I have ffmpeg version 20061004 mysql version 5.0.24a and postgresql version 8.1.5

The two error messages are what get attempting to run the precompile binary and then compiling 3.2.7. Following that is my .configure and make.

motion: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libavcodec.so: undefined symbol: NeAACDecOpen

Answer

From what I can see all around Motion is OK.

But something is missing in the ffmpeg libs. Probably some dependency that is not satisfied.

You have two options. Either find out what is missing.

Or uninstall the ffmpeg and compile your own. If that is what you did you may try a newer version of ffmpeg. I compiled a fresh SVN checkout from the ffmpeg project two days ago and it compiled fine. And Motion compiled fine with it also.

All the deprecation warnings you get are OK and can be ignored. Another silly thing from the ffmpeg team.

I just Googled for the error. Some links

So common problem. And with a solution. If you do not use ffmpeg for anything else, uninstalling it and building latest SVN from source will probably work.

Remember to build ffmpeg with ./configure --enable-shared followed by make and make install.
