Compile Boxee Linux on PPC (PowerBook G4)
not sure if this has been answered in the past or if it is possible. I downloaded the souce for linux and tried to compile Boxee on a PPC running Lubuntu 12.04. Bootstrap went fine but when in ./configure I get the following message:
checking if we have SIMD optimisations for cpu type... no ("powerpc")
configure: error: CPU is not supported
configure: error: Submodule xbmc/lib/cximage-6.0/jpeg-turbo failed to configure
I get the feeling that cximage is not supported under PPC? If this is the case do I have any alternative? XBMC compiled fine under this configuration and is running but would like to give a try to boxee. Any help will be much appreciated.
