I've already seen this problem for people who install vdr. People
seem to expect that vdr is installed to /usr/local/bin while plugins
go to /usr/local/bin/PLUGINS/lib. The current Makefile puts:
vdr to $(DESTDIR)$(BINDIR), plugins to $(DESTDIR)$(PLUGINLIBDIR), with
DESTDIR empty by default.
ok.. so vdr goes in /usr/local/bin, as expected.. but plugins go in
./PLUGINS/lib.. Again, the most common expected behavior that I see
from users is that vdr be installed to $(BINDIR) and plugins installed
to $(BINDIR)/$(PLUGINLIBDIR). vdr in /usr/local/bin, plugins in
Also, when cleaning plugins, shouldn't ALL copies be cleaned? Why
would you clean plugins binaries from ./PLUGINS/lib but not from your
install path is as well? In the previous example,
/usr/local/bin/PLUGINS/lib.. It seems fitting & expected to: @-rm -f
Just my observations...
