All *NIX systems

Download the latest sourcecode.
Unpack the source code

tar xvzf miav-0.3.4.tar.gz

in some local directory.
Now simply run



make install

in the souce directory.
If the ./configure command fails with missing dependencies see the proper section further down to fix it.
If the installation is a server-only installation, the ./configure command can be called with

./configure --without-client

to remove all client-only dependencies (QT3 amongst others)


Getting depencies on Gentoo is easy. first make sure you have the Xand xv flags in your make.conf USE=… section.
Then simply call

emerge -va "<x11-libs/qt-4" libdv libsdl jpeg libraw1394 libfame lame

or just

emerge -va libdv jpeg libfame lame

if the installation is a server-only installation.


On Fedora Core 3 a simple add to the yum repository can make all these installable: Simply create the file



name=Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core 

and then run

yum install qt-devel libdv-devel SDL-devel
libjpeg-devel libraw1394-devel libfame-devel lame-devel

to install the development packages.


FIXME Describe how to configure the installed client and/or server.
