How to setup Cinelerra in 64 Studio
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
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.
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!
