Install Handbrake on Fedora 18
Unfortunately, there are no repos that contain Handbrake pre-built for Fedora. That's not always a bad thing, it just means we need to download and compile it on our machines. It's not as hard as it sounds! Here's how I did it:
We need to get any and all dependencies for Handbrake. I found these by checking the readme and a few other places on the web:
Lets get the development stuff first:
sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
Now lets get all the other dependencies for Handbrake:
sudo yum install libass-devel libsamplerate-devel libogg-devel libtheora-devel libvorbis-devel yasm zlib-devel bzip2-devel fribidi-devel dbus-glib-devel libgudev1-devel webkitgtk-devel libnotify-devel gstreamer-devel gstreamer-plugins-base-devel libsamplerate-devel svn
Once we have all those installed, we can download a copy of Handbrake using SVN:
svn checkout svn://svn.handbrake.fr/HandBrake/trunk hb-trunk
OK. Now we have everything we need to begin compiling lets change to the proper directory and compile!
That's all there is to it! You should now have Handbrake installed and ready for use. Please post below if you come across any problems.
