Dear all,
I bother you again with my probleme on compiling VLC with Msys.
First of all, thank you for your guide, I could compile vlc 0.9.8 with msys,
having the gcc 4.2.1sjlj. But I still need your help to be sure on
1.What sed version do you have in msys? My sed I have (after doing all of
the update as you said in your tutor) is  3.02. And it is can not treat the
option -i. This option was specified in the Makefile of gcrypt as following:
(line 1874)
ifdef HAVE_WIN32
 (cd $<; ./autogen.sh && $(HOSTCC) ./configure $(HOSTCONF)
--target=i586-mingw32msvc --prefix=$(PREFIX) CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" $(CIPHDIG)
--disable-shared --enable-static --disable-nls && sed -i
46s at sys/times.h at sys/time.h@ cipher/random.c && make && make install)
I try to compile the latest sed (4.1), then I have other problem with sed
(probably due to the option -e). That is why I reused the version 3.02 and
just simply cut the part "sed -i 46s at sys/times.h at sys/time.h@
cipher/random.c" off.  Can you send me the right snapshot of sed I should
2. After doing as mentioned above, I could compile gcrypt, and vlc itself.
The problem is that whenever I open a film, the video is presented in
another window, and the VLC controls remain in the origin window. I wonder
Best regards
