How to compile, install and make rpm packages of showtime in Fedora 16

First of you need (a clean install of) Fedora 16 (Graphical Desktop)


###############################################################################


Section 0 - RPMFusion Repositories

Section 1 - Nvidia Graphics Drivers (if you like the nvidia blob and have a nvidia card)
(Showtime works prefect with the drivers provided in the default fedora installation so you can skip this part and continue at Section 2)

Section 2 - Install Development packages
Section 3 - Showtime Source
Section 4 - RPM


###############################################################################


If you like to work with a good graphical package manager install yumex for future use, (this turtorial uses command line)
root@computer ~]# yum install yumex


###############################################################################
## Section 0 - RPMFusion Repositories
###############################################################################


Setup your Fedora to use RPMfusion as 3'rd party repositories by web or command line

Browse to rpmfusion.org and goto the configuration page and install both the free and nonfree libraries that is correct for this version or do it command line stile.

root@computer ~]# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm


###############################################################################
## Section 1 - Nvidia Graphics Drivers (Showtime works without section 1...)
###############################################################################


Nvidia will conflict with the free Nouveau drivers so to be on the safe side we do

Disable the SELinux environment
root@computer ~]# gedit /etc/selinux/config and change enforcing to disabled

Reboot to disable selinux and enter runlevel 3
root@computer ~]# reboot
root@computer ~]# init 3

//
you can also enter runlevel 3 from grub by pressing e to edit the grubconfig and enter the digit 3 last in the vmlinuz line (after UTF.8) then press F10 to boot
//

when in runlevel 3 delete the nouveau drivers and rebuild the initramfs and install the nvidia drivers

root@computer ~]# yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau
root@computer ~]# mv /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko.old
root@computer ~]# mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
root@computer ~]# dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
root@computer ~]# yum install kmod-nvidia akmod-nvidia

reboot end nvidia proprietary drivers should engage
root@computer ~]# reboot


###############################################################################
## Section 2 - Install Development packages
###############################################################################


Become root in a shell (su -) and add theese groups to make the computer a basic development workstation

root@computer ~]# yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries" "GNOME Software Development"


Next add the development packages that Showtime depends on

yasm			to compile the libav
alsa-lib-devel		alsa support
pulseaudio-libs-devel	pulse support
libXScrnSaver		X.Org screen saver support, not default on fedora
libXScrnSaver-devel	X.Org screen saver support
libXv-devel		X.Org libXv support
libcdio-devel		cdio cdda support
libcddb			cddb servers support, not default on fedora
libcddb-devel		cddb servers support
avahi-devel		Avahi support
libvdpau-devel		VDPAU support
mesa-libGLw
mesa-libGLw-devel
mesa-libGLU-devel
librtmp-devel
libdvdread-devel
libdvdnav-devel
polarssl
polarssl-devel

// ffmpeg		will be needed when libav is not in main branch			
// ffmpeg-devel

root@computer ~]# yum install yasm alsa-lib-devel pulseaudio-libs-devel libXScrnSaver libXScrnSaver-devel libXv-devel libcdio-devel libcddb libcddb-devel avahi-devel libvdpau-devel mesa-libGLw mesa-libGLw-devel mesa-libGLU-devel librtmp-devel libdvdread-devel libdvdnav-devel polarssl polarssl-devel ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel


###############################################################################
## Section 3 - Showtime Source
###############################################################################


//as user

user@computer ~]$ git clone git://github.com/andoma/showtime

//if you intend to make an rpm do not run ./configure in the folder.. (will fail to build later because folder will be renamed)


###############################################################################
## Section 4 - RPM
###############################################################################


add rpmdevtools to create rpm packages 
root@computer ~]# yum install rpmdevtools

Then in you home folder as user (not as root) run
user@computer ~]$ rpmdev-setuptree

copy showtime-f16.spec from the $HOME/showtime/support/fedora folder into $HOME/rpmbuild/SPEC directory

Check the spec file for the version it intends to build and rename the showtime folder to showtime-3.2.3 if 3.2.3 is the version in the spec file

Add that folder to a bz2 archive.  showtime-3.2.3.tar.bz2 (this archive now has the showtime folder and all it's subcontents within.

Move the archive to your newly created $home/rpmbuild/SOURCES folder (was created with rpmdev-setuptree)

change directory to $home/rpmbuild/SPEC  and make the rpm files.

user@computer ~]$ rpmbuild -ba showtime.spec
user@computer ~]$ rpmbuild -ba --target i686 showtime.spec  //if you are on a 64bit machine and need to make the 32bit rpm
