I have been at this for so long that no one short of John Skeet can tell me to RTFM.
I am trying to install VLC as per this answer and these instructions, but that installation requires several (read 'dozens') of modules, one of which in turn requires libfaac-dev. Installing that should be relatively painless:
sudo apt-get install libfaac-dev
However, I get the following error
E: Unable to locate package libfaac-dev
Which, turns out is due to the
libfaac-dev package being technically not free so it is in the 'multiverse' respositories. So all you have to do is edit your
/etc/apt/sources.list file and add a few repository addresses. But 'multiverse' is for Ubuntu, and Raspi runs on Debian 7.0 ("wheezy") so it uses a different system altogether (see here).
At this point I had so many tabs open, and I was trying to install so many dependencies of dependencies that I hit a wall, so my questions are:
- Is it possible to install libfaac-dev on Raspi?
- If so, is it even necessary (ie. not already installed)?
- If so, how do I install
