Hi Frank I'm as new as you are in this. 


And I also have problems with my Ffmpeg compilation in Solaris 10 Sparc.


The grep version that Solaris has not includes the -q option that is why
you get an error in the compilation. 


I did this, to replace the grep version to the proper GNU .


vi configure




Still after the compilation I couldn't see or listen anything after
convert from avi to flv. So I added "Lame". No I can hear the sound but
I'm not able to see the video.


Did you found the solution?

Are you able now to see the video?
