I am currently working on a project that requires me to build ffmpeg locally on an Amazon Linux instance. I did a repo search and could find nasm, but ffmpeg didn’t like it at compile time. Here is how to get yasm installed. I am documenting this because I will probably need it again. It is assumed you have already installed git-core.
git clone git://github.com/yasm/yasm.git cd yasm ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
Git is a handy little tool.
