    Default Vlc compilation

    Hi there, the early version of Backtrack vlc worked well about the proxy configuration.
    When I downloaded the Backtrack 4R1 version Vlc stopped to work behind a proxy server.
    On Vlc site , the problem has been noticed, so right now i'm trying to install it from the source
    but i'm getting the following problem...
    configure: error: Couldn't find DBus >= 1.0.0, install libdbus-dev ?
    Tried apt-get install libdbus-dev
    And i got this error:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package libdbus-dev
    Can someone help me???

    apt-get install libdbus-1-dev should solve your problem.

    Well if the error message didn't tell you the exact name of a package to grab, you might want to look into # apt-cache showpkg exactvlcpackagename, to check for dependencies, however it should have pulled them in, if it is a dependency.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    @Archangel-Amael, thanks for the suggestion, but during the compilation it
    gives me a lot of error likes libs outdated, libs not present ect. So is there an alternative way, let's say a bit faster??
    how about the sources.list, which one is the suitable?
    Thanks in advanced

    What I would have done at the command line is type:

    Code:
    apt-get install libdb
    and then I would have pressed the TAB key. Wait a second and it will give you a list of all available packages that start with "libdb".

    Also you can be a little girl and use the Synaptic Package Manager
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    I do not want to be unpolite ther's no need, but when someone is answearing back, could he be more appropiate, i mean trying to understand, and read the exact thing requesting!!!!.
    Doing an apt-get in stall vlc it gives me the same version of vlc, like doing thathe for the libs or what so ever,so i think its necessary to comment out the normal repository and install anothere one, but doing that the backtrack stuff are not responsable for upset function of the S.O.
