If you already have a cross-compiler then you can ignore the complete
sections about "Building the toolchain".
You can continue at either the section:
- "Setting up Opie cross-compile environment" or
- "Cross compiling libraries needed by vlc""
The look into one of the ipkg/rules.* scripts for hints on how to
cross-compile VLC for your target. Of course you must have all the 3rd
party libraries you want to use already cross-compiled. The libraries
and VLC source code can be found on the VLC download site. From the
binary download area http://www.videolan.org/vlc select the "source
code" link and then select "browse the list" for finding a previous VLC
version. Otherwise download every library in there.

Depends on for which Linux distribution you want to build VLC for. The
examples given here are for building VLC for use in a Opie Familar Linux
distribution or a GPE Familiar Linux distribution.

ipaq-config.site is a file you write yourself. I don't have one around
at the moment, since I am going on a 10 days holiday right now. So if
you have any further questions in the meantime, then I suggest you
e-mail your questions to "vlc-devel at videolan.org". Make sure to
