Hi all and Happy New Year,
I'm trying to compile the last snapshot on a Gutsy.

I installed all the dependencies using an 'apt-get build-dep'

I'm using the following configure:
./configure --enable-static --enable-python-bindings --disable-shared

...and I get this error:

   1. Making all in python
   2. make[3]: Entering directory `/home/giorgio/Desktop/vlc/vlc-0.9.0

On IRC somebody told me to ask here because probably that function changed.

Thanks in advance,

Giorgio Salluzzo
