Compile and Install VLC 0.9.9a on Ubuntu Hardy

Here is what I did to install VLC 0.9.9a on my Ubuntu Hardy:

sudo apt-get build-dep vlc
sudo apt-get install paranoia*
sudo apt-get install libx264-dev

wget http://www.live555.com/liveMedia/pub...-latest.tar.gz
tar xvfz live555-latest.tar.gz
cd live
sudo ./genMakefiles linux
sudo make
cd ..
sudo cp -r live /usr/lib

wget http://download.videolan.org/pub/vid...0.9.9a.tar.bz2
tar jxvf vlc-0.9.9a.tar.bz2
cd vlc-0.9.9a
sudo ./configure --with-live555-tree=/usr/lib/live --prefix=/usr --disable-zvbi --enable-flac --enable-libass --enable-caca --enable-faad --disable-kate --enable-twolame --enable-realrtsp --enable-cddax --enable-theora --enable-mozilla --with-mozilla-pkg=libxul-plugin --with-x264-tree=/usr/include
sudo make
sudo make install

Enjoy :)

What do you exactly mean? What errors did you face? It compiled successfully on my Ubuntu Hardy without any problems, hope I can help.
