Install Handbrake on Fedora 11

What is Handbrake?

It is…

… an open-source, GPL-licensed, multi-platform, multi-threaded, video transcoder, available for Max OS X, Linux, and Windows.

Simply put, Handbrake is useful for ripping your favorite DVDs into .AVIs MP4s.

Installation

You need to install the following package groups:

  • Development Tools
  • Development Libraries
  • X Software Development (gui)
  • GNOME Software Development (gui)

In your terminal, as root, just key in:

yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries" "X Software Development" "GNOME Software Development"

And you also need the following packages:

  • yasm
  • zlib-devel
  • bzip2-devel
  • dbus-glib-devel (gui)
  • hal-devel (gui)
  • webkitgtk-devel (gui)

In your terminal, as root, just key in:

yum install yasm zlib-devel bzip2-devel dbus-glib-devel hal-devel webkitgtk-devel libnotify-devel gstreamer-devel gstreamer-plugins-base-devel

Checkout Handbrake from the repository:

  1. I currently have FC11 installed on my desktop.I followed every step listed so far and every command worked apart from “sudo make install”.Since i was already working as root i just typed “make” while in build directory…this seemed to work but later when i typed “install” i did not get any response.I later found it(Handbrake) installed and appearing under..>Applications>Sound & Video..seems to work just fine..thanks a lot

  2. @Patrick, I meant that “make install” be done in one execution. But good thing it’s working now. =D

    Thanks for pointing out the sudo’s. Removed them already.
