I am in the process of attempting my first build of VLC on MacOS X,
using the 1.0.0-rc2 tarball, and I am attempting to follow the
I have MacPorts installed, so to 'disable' it I typed in my bash shell
(BTW it would be worth mentioning this in the Wiki):
# Build the third party libraries
at this point I am getting a failure:
contrib ajmas$ make
/usr/bin/curl -L -O ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/videolan/testing/contrib/contrib-macosx-i386-1.0.tar.bz2
curl: (56) FTP response reading failed
make: *** [contrib-macosx-i386-1.0.tar.bz2] Error 56
Trying to manually access the ftp server I get:
Ghostwalker2:contrib ajmas$ ftp ftp.videolan.org
Connected to ganesh.videolan.org.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.
Is something broken?
BTW Once I have successfully built VLC on MacOS X, I would like to add
some quick-build instructions to the Wiki page, which people could
just copy and paste into their shell, though I'll have to get someone
else to add this, since I don't seem to have the necessary permissions
to update the page.
