Building Pd-extended 0.42.5 on Debian Wheezy amd64

UPDATE: Currently (29 June 2011) this is broken :(

!!:This has not been thoroughly tested. Last update 29 June 2011

Credits: This method is based on the instructions found on the ../Debian page and the use of (see ../AutoBuildScripts)

(Adding the Debian multimedia repository)

Use the instructions provided on the multimedia repository page. This is needed for the lame mp3 library. Once added update sources.

NOTE: adding the "Debian Multimedia" repository is known to cause troubles with Debian systems, and Debian maintainers usually refuse to give any support once they find out that you are using it. Luckily, the lame mp3 lame library is now in official debian (starting with "wheezy"), and you can get it ofr "squeeze" as well, by using the official backports (follow instructions on that page. Once added update sources).

Installing the needed packages

Install the build dependencies for the puredata,gem and pd-pdp packages (notice "pd-pdp" not pdp):

UPDATE: Currently (29 June 2011) pd-pdp is not present in wheezy! (See below for guessed dependencies)
UPDATE: As of 8 September 2011, pd-pdp is again present in wheezy!

apt-get build-dep puredata gem pd-pdp
Install the following packages (updated 29 June 2011 considering the previous missing ones! Many will already be pulled by gem):

NOTE: Although this was tested on a fairly 'clean' system it may vary largely from system to system.

apt-get install libmp3lame0 libmp3lame-dev ladspa-sdk dssi-dev libimlib2-dev libtheora-dev \
                rsync tcl8.5 tcl8.5-dev tk8.5 tk8.5-dev libglu1-mesa libglu1-mesa-dev libv4l-0 libv4l-dev \
                libmagic-dev libmpeg3-1 libmpeg3-dev libquicktime2 libquicktime-dev libavifile-0.7c2 libavifile-0.7-dev \
                libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev libjpeg62 libjpeg62-dev libtiff4 libtiff4-dev \
                ttf-bitstream-vera ttf-dejavu

Installing libquicktime

Libquicktime is needed for pidip to build properly, but it seems the lqt-config is not included in the packages proposed by the multimedia repository, so you have to install it manually from the main repositories. You can fetch the debs here:

Get the sources and prepare to build

Get the source code package for Pd-extended

Unpack in some directory and cd to that directory (from now on the "source root").

(29 June 2011): pdp and thus pidip 'not working

From the source root:

cd externals/pidip/

Build pidip

Configure with the following switches and make pidip directly (for some reason the autobuild script failed when it got to pidip):

./configure --with-pd=../../pd --with-pdp=../pdp

Start the autobuild script

Cd to the scripts/auto-build/ directory from the source root:

cd ../../scripts/auto-build/
Start the script
Wait... Cross fingers... Ignore some scary messages and errors (be brave!)...

Install the .deb package

If everything went well there should be a message saying you have a .deb in dir ./packages/linux_make/Pd-0.42.5-extended.deb (stil the source root):

cd ../../packages/linux_make/

Finally as root install the .deb:

dpkg -i Pd-0.42.5-extended.deb
