I am getting 'no such file/directory errors' during compilation of sources located in /avi/intern folder... header fiels are missing from jpeg library. where is jpeg library supposed to be located or am I tasked with manual installation. Please advise.
Likely you need to install it. On linux, the headers come from a packaged named -dev or -devel (depending on your distro) Or you can install the package from source and get everything.
On a Debian system or derivative (e.g. Ubuntu), try this to get the necessary base dependencies:
|apt-get build-dep blender |
