Installation problem - RPM dependency check still fails


Hi I am trying to install motion on my CentOS 4.4-based server (effectively RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 4). Having read the preparation notes, I have downloaded the "known good" ffmpeg tgz snapshot, configured (with shared option), made and installed it. I edited /etc/ as instructed and ran ldconfig. The various libav*.so files are now in /usr/local/lib.

When I try to install the Motion RPM, it is still complaining of failed dependencies - etc etc.

However these files do exist in /usr/local/lib.

Any idea why the dependency check is still failing ?


Motion version: 3.2.7
ffmpeg version:  
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 4 (CentOS4.4)

If you want to use motion RPM package you must satisfy all the dependencies from RPM , so you cannot use a package compile by hand.

Anyway you can get the motion tarball and compile by hand.
