In file included from pix_video.cpp:18:0:
../Pixes/videoV4L.h:43:29: fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file
or directory

When compiling from svn instead I'm getting this:

		install -p -m 644 examples/$file /home/renato/src/pd-extended-svn/pkg/usr/lib/pd-extended/extra/jmmmp/examples; \
test -z "" || \

You can see the exact command lines that were given by looking at the file called PKGBUILD linked to in [1] and [2] - you're interested in the "build" function there. The sed lines there seem to be crucial - removing them throws other errors before these (except from the tclpd one in pd-extended-svn which actually has to be commented out)

So, anyone can help us Archlinuxers compile pd-extended?

kind regards,
