Trouble installing Miro-TV program

Post by bg3075 » Sat Nov 14, 2009 0:30

Sorry, I am a newbie (to Gentoo/Sabayon). I previously had Fedora, but decided Sabayon may be easier to share with XBox 360. Anyway, I have tried to install the Miro tv player, via emerge, which returned that install failed. I tried the same thing, first, with version 2.5.3, which did the same. I don't know why, but have the log file results below. Please help.

Code: Select all

      >>> Unpacking source...
      >>> Unpacking Miro-2.0.5.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work
      >>> Source unpacked in /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work
      >>> Preparing source in /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work/Miro-2.0.5/platform/gtk-x11 ...
      >>> Source prepared.
      >>> Configuring source in /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work/Miro-2.0.5/platform/gtk-x11 ...
      >>> Source configured.
      >>> Compiling source in /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work/Miro-2.0.5/platform/gtk-x11 ...
      python build
      /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work/Miro-2.0.5/portable/ DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the hashlib module instead
      import sha
      Using boost_python-mt
      libtorrent-rasterbar (0.13 or later) and python bindings are installed--using system version.
      Package config error:
      pkg-config --list-all outputted the following error:
      Failed to open '/usr/lib/pkgconfig/cblas.pc': No such file or directory
      Variable 'exec_prefix' not defined in '/usr/lib/pkgconfig/vmguestlib.pc'

      * If you need support, post the output of 'emerge --info =media-tv/miro-2.0.5',
      * the complete build log and the output of 'emerge -pqv =media-tv/miro-2.0.5'.

      * S: '/var/tmp/portage/media-tv/miro-2.0.5/work/Miro-2.0.5/platform/gtk-x11'

I even tried "3. Using downloaded ebuilds" at, with same results.
