Motion - Free BSD Fix Compile

FreeBSD Fix Compile

Problem description

When you try to compile FreeBSD version of motion without bktr support ( V4L in linux ) passing --without-v4l to configure , make don't work raising an error about some not defined vales METEOR_* that's because the headers files containing METEOR_*_* values are not included due are not needed without bktr.

If you have ffmpeg installed but don't have lame library motion fails to compile :

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmp3lame

So i've updated the patch to solve that in excluding -lmp3lame, ( linux version ) had that issue fixed already, so i guess now both are synchronised.


Apply this patch , How ? ( see below ):

  1. -. Get & descompress the patch gunzip freeBSD-patch--without-v4l.diff.gz
  2. -. Apply the patch tar xfvz motion-3.1.16.tar.gz ; cd motion-3.1.16 ; patch -p1 < ../freeBSD-patch--without-v4l.diff
  3. -. Configure & Build motion for FreeBSD cp ; autoconf ; ./configure --without-v4l ; make ; make install
