    It's been a few months since I've compiled the HandBrake SVN and I thought I'd give it a try after hearing some good things after the recent improvements. However, I've been unable to actually compile a working application.

    Like before, I followed the steps listed here. I know pretty much nothing about terminal, so maybe I'm doing something wrong in the process. I've tried using RapidSVN and Terminal to checkout the SVN, but neither seems to work. After navigating to the folder, I type "make" into terminal. Previously, it would take a few minutes to compile the application. However, now terminal just responds with "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."

    Can someone help me correct what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

    I had the same issue. You need to navigate into the 'build' folder and then run make. I believe that's how I got it working...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just checked out the SVN again but I'm unable to locate the build folder. I thought maybe you meant the "make" folder but after trying that it didn't work either. Anyone else out there that can help me?

    I hate to make you do more than you'd like :)p), but do you think you could provide me a little more information about the first two steps? I have no idea what you mean about the ./configure. I'm guessing for step number two I'm supposed to navigate into the build folder (obvious, right?), but with the SVN that I've been checking out I can't find a build folder.

    The steps I have tried following are:

    1. svn co svn://svn.handbrake.fr/HandBrake/trunk
    2. cd trunk (I've tried build and make, both to no avail)
    3. make

    Anymore help for this noob would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: After a little more trial and error it appears I've been able to get it working. Thank for your help jocab64 and wrc fan.

    For clarification for anybody else that might look this up, I was saying to do this:

    1. svn co svn://svn.handbrake.fr/HandBrake/trunk
    2. cd trunk
    3. ./configure
    4. cd build
    5. make

    For some reason it always fails to build.
