How to setup Cinelerra in 64 Studio

Submitted by Quentin Harley on Tue, 07/24/2007 - 20:00

Cinelerra CV is an open-source non-linear video editor and is one of those incredible pieces of software that you just cannot believe is free... but that is part of the problem. 64 Studio cannot include it as part of the distribution because it has too many patent encumbered dependencies. But not to worry, if you install it yourself from other sources it is yours to use as you please! And this is that story...

64 Studio 3.0
8.04 Hardy Heron

1) Add repository
deb http://akirad.cinelerra.org akirad-hardy main

2) Install package: akirad-keyring-and-mirrors

3) Reload synaptic

4) Select package cinelerra, and dependencies and install
- These packages set shmmax to 0x7fffffff and add non-English language support for Cinelerra.

64 Studio 2.1
Debian Etch
Dependencies
Cinelerra has quite a few exotic dependencies, but all of it resides in two extra repositories:


deb http://apt.64studio.com/backports/ etch-backports main
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ etch main

I like to keep the 64studio repository active to make sure Synaptic does not break my system in it's absence (paranoid?)

According to the Cinelerra website it is a good idea to make sure that you have an OpenGL graphics driver module loaded. Although the application will run without it, the performance hit is significant. I installed the nvidia driver module that comes with the 2.0 distro for my graphics adaptor.

Installation
From here on it is quite easy. Look for the "cinelerra" package in Synaptic and mark it. A whole lot of other packages will be selected - accept and apply. Go make yourself some coffee (or whatever it is what you do to relax.)

When completed, close synaptic.

In a terminal:

tux@64studio:~# sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

and add the following line before "exit 0":

echo "0x7fffffff" > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

After a reboot you should be ready to go!

APT KEY
I think its... wget -q http://apt.64studio.com/backports/dists/etch-backports/Release.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update OR wget -q http://apt.64studio.com/backports/dists/etch/Release.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update haven't tried it yet, just had a small look through the site and found it...

on second thought...
It said that the Keys are invalid, but looked in "New in Repository" and cinelerra and others are clearly there to install. I personally cant install it, (I can't get liblame, libmjpeg or libquicktime)

I tried this but it was not
I tried this but it was not compiled with opengl. I am looking for a binary with opengl enabled.

Keys
I installed it without bothering to install the keys. Sure, it complains about not having it, but you can continue and install it - no problem.

No Cinelerra
I have added the required repositories to synaptic, but am still unable to find cinelerra. Everytime I start synaptic I get the following. I am new to debian based systems. Any help is appreciated. An error occured The following details are provided: W: Couldn't stat source package list http://http.us.debian.org sarge/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_sarge_main_binary-amd64_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory) W: Couldn't stat source package list http://apt.64studio.com etch/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/apt.64studio.com_backports_dists_etch_main_binary-amd64_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)

Repositories
In the run-up to the latest release, the repositories has changed. The backports repository is now deb http://apt.64studio.com/backports etch-backports main Change this, and everything should be fine again. Cheers,

Architecture
On which architecture do you install? I tested this how-to on AMD64 64 Studio 2.1 RC2, and it worked.

cinelerra
I'm on a dual Opteron system. In synaptic it says my installed version on 64 studio is 2.1~pre14. My sources file looks like this: # # deb cdrom:[64studio 2.0 (1)]/ 64studio main # deb cdrom:[64studio 2.0 (1)]/ 64studio main # deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ sarge main deb http://apt.64studio.com/backports/ etch-backports main deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main deb http://apt.harleystudio.co.za/cinelerra/ ./ deb http://giss.tv/~vale/debian64 ./ Why would I be getting the messege above? -Dan
Posted by mattephotofinish on Thu, 05/08/2008 - 17:13
Got it...
Remove the giss.tv repository. It has a version of cinelerra (same version) but built against Lenny. The version for etch AMD64 is in the harleystudio repository That should do it. Let us know!

Posted by mattephotofinish on Thu, 05/08/2008 - 20:40
Change repository
The harleystudio repository has been updated. Please change it to: deb http://apt.harleystudio.co.za/ etch main Now it should actually work! Thanks for reporting the problem,

Thanks Harley, It installed. And it seems to be working. Tomorrow I'll try capturing and editing. Thanks again. -Dan

RE: Cinelerra

Broken dependencies...
Looks like there are broken dependencies. I don't have a system running 64 Studio 2.1 at the moment as we are testing the 3.0 alpha. I'll see if I can find the problem
