Compile Blender 2.56 on Fedora 13 and 14


 
To have Blender 2.56 successfully running on Fedora 13 and Fedora 14 you need to compile it from source.
 
This is not as hard as most people would think if you follow these simple instructions.
 
1. Install needed package dependencies
2. Download Blender source
3. Edit scons config file (WITH_BF_FFMPEG = False)
4. Compile Blender
5. Run Blender
 

So lets start with first step:
UPDATE: There were two dependencies missing: gettext and gettext-devel

su -

yum install gcc-c++ subversion esound-devel freeglut-devel libjpeg-devel libogg-devel libpng-devel libtool libvorbis-devel freealut-devel openssl-devel python3-devel scons SDL-devel zlib-devel libtiff-devel libXi-devel xorg-x11-proto-devel libGL-devel libGLU-devel freetype-devel OpenEXR-devel glew-devel libsamplerate-devel fftw-devel ftgl-devel ode-devel openjpeg-devel qhull-devel gettext gettext-devel -y
exit

 
Second step is also really easy:

cd ~
mkdir blender-build
cd blender-build
svn co https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/trunk/blender

 
Edit scons config file
Just open Linux config file, find line with “WITH_BF_FFMPEG = True” and change it to “WITH_BF_FFMPEG = False”:

gedit blender/build_files/scons/config/linux2-config.py

 

Now compile Blender:

cd blender
python scons/scons.py

 

Running Blender
After compilation blender binary executable file is located in ~/blender-build/install/linux2/blender. So just create symbolic link to it:

ln -s ~/blender-build/install/linux2/blender ~/blender-build/blender/

 
When you start Blender you should see something like this in terminal:


$ ./blender
Info: Config directory with "startup.blend" file not found.
found bundled python: /home/liveuser/blender-build/install/linux2/2.56/python

    Worked perfectly fine for me
    created a folder and went inside
    then

    su
    yum install gcc-c++ subversion esound-devel freeglut-devel libjpeg-devel libogg-devel libpng-devel libtool libvorbis-devel freealut-devel openssl-devel python3-devel scons SDL-devel zlib-devel libtiff-devel libXi-devel xorg-x11-proto-devel libGL-devel libGLU-devel freetype-devel OpenEXR-devel glew-devel libsamplerate-devel fftw-devel ftgl-devel ode-devel openjpeg-devel qhull-devel gettext gettext-devel -y
    Then i typed
    blender
    The system downloaded dependencies, registered them and started the Blender. Works perfectly fine
