Description minfrin 2016-08-28 19:17:17 UTC
The current master of gst-omx fails to build on Raspbian as follows:

Making install in omx
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/pi/packages/gstreamer-master/gst-omx/omx'
  CC       libgstomx_la-gstomxvideodec.lo

compilation terminated.

Makefile:505: recipe for target 'install-recursive' failed
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

The primary cause is that gst/gl/gstglconfig.h has moved from the include/ directory to the lib/gstreamer-1.0/include/ directory, and gst-omx does not appear to include this directory from within autoconf.

That would be a problem in gst-plugins-bad in the gstreamer-gl-1.0 pkg-config file.

And that would be caused by

    gl/pkgconfig: add the lib include dir to the list of includes
    714d8aa in core removed this include dir from it's pkgconfig file.

Oh I see, I didn't see the connection between the core commit and gstglconfig.h :)
