yum list ruby

3. Once you make sure that Ruby is not already installed, execute the following script to install Ruby:



yum install [RUBY.VERSION]

this may take a while……………

4. Once ruby is installed download flvtool2:

1 wget -c
2 tar -zxf flvtool2-1.0.6.tgz
3 cd flvtool2-1.0.6
4 ruby setup.rb config

Flvtool2 is now installed in /usr/bin/flvtool2. The installed flvtool2 is perfectly compatible with Adult Video Script (avs), Clipshare, MediaXXXScript and AdultWatchPro.

Problems Faced While installation.

I have faced two problems while installation of MP4Box

1) Permission of “./Configure” was not set; I have corrected it by setting permission of the file to 755

[[email protected] gpac]# ./configure
-bash: ./configure: Permission denied
[[email protected] gpac]# chmod 755 configure
2) Error on 64 Bit OS. Following Error was thrown. This Error can be fixed by creating an symbolic link of /usr/lib64/ to /usr/lib64/

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lglut
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status


[[email protected] gpac]#ls /usr/lib64 |grep glut
[[email protected] gpac]# ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/
