max_analyze_duration reached

Ubuntu 11.10:

<code> sudo aptitude remove gnome-screensaver

sudo aptitude install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data-extra electricsheep

sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/xscreensaver-command   /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command</code>


<code>GL: electricsheep --root 1                \n\</code>

to ~/.xscreensaver

Run electricsheep either directly from commandline or as preview from xscreensaver-demo:

<code>[avi @ 0x1b10080] max_analyze_duration reached
[avi @ 0x1b10080] max_analyze_duration reached

Terminated only written to CLI if running electricsheep directly. From xscreensaver-demo, the message "signal 15" appears on the screen as well.

[nb -- html code tag seems to be broken?]


fork it

I had the same problem in Ubuntu 11.10 but noticed that the preview view in xscreensaver was working, and that I could run electricsheep from a terminal without problems.

I always activate my screensaver by manually locking using xscreensaver-command --lock command tied to blueproximity and was seeing the information max_analyze_duration reached displayed instead of the sheep.

My solution: running xscreensaver-command --lock &
The & forks and allowed me to see my sheep when walking away from my computer.

there's a new and completely rewritten client for linux, but you need to install it from source.  see "Linux Client Instructions" topic in this forum.

sorry i don't understand your question.

More Detail:

More detail:

got electricsheep source via svn from trunk/electricsheep-readonly. Source resides in ~/electricsheep/electricsheep-read-only/client_generic

ran ./

installed wxWidgets 2.8.12 from deb repository

set environ: CXXFLAGS="`wx-config --cxxflags`" LDFLAGS="`wx-config --libs all`"

ran ./configure

After running through some steps, it failed at this point with


<code>checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config

checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes

checking for AVCODEC... no

configure: error: Package requirements (libavcodec) were not met:


No package 'libavcodec' found


Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you

installed software in a non-standard prefix.


Alternatively, you may set the environment variables AVCODEC_CFLAGS

and AVCODEC_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.

See the pkg-config man page for more details.</code>

man pkg-config is not informative; to what exactly should the above two environ variables be set? Or another solution?libavcodec is part of the already installed ffmpeg packge. I also see that there is a ffmpeg folder in the source.




you need the development

you need the development version, not the runtime.


I looked through ./config -- not willing to spend the time and effort to pursue creating a build system for electricsheep. I'll check back once in a while until an up to date deb package or repo is available. Thanks for your patient help.

im going to second the

im going to second the content of this thread... spot plz build a ubuntu virtual machine to get a zero to sheep build going... it works under gnome-screensaver but theres nothing for the xfce users / lxde / xscreensaver / non gnome, and non kde users.... unlike the previous poster i am rather patient about building dev environments, and cannot get a build of the SVN. the SVN needs a checkout revision number flag for the "working" build you get going to keep everyone on the same page.... i cant go forwards or backwards in versions to get anything to run.... and i suffer from the same problem of mplayer crashing and printing the messages... "max_analyze_duration reached"

if you are using mplayer then

if you are using mplayer then you are using the obsolete SVN.

please see the linux release notes for how to get started.

we are working on fixing the problems but we only support gnome.  other screensaver frameworks we take contributions from people who use them.

are you sure you have updated

are you sure you have updated to the latest code?  we have fixed a bunch of linux problems and it compiles clean afaik on ubuntu 11.10.
