Debian / Ubuntu: Install Latest Version Of OpenSHOT on-Linear Video Editor

Posted on in Categories , , last updated December 6, 2012

OpenShot is a free and open source video editor designed to create videos on Linux. This app act as an alternative to iMoive or Windows Movie Maker. I am using Debian Linux 6.x. This version ships with an older version of OpenSHOT software. How can I install the latest version of OpenSHOT under Debian GNU/Linux?

I‘m trying to use Cinelerra video editing and compositing software under Linux operating systems. However, I’m getting the following error:

MWindow::init_shm: /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax is 0x1000000.
It should be at least 0x7ffffff for cinelerra.

How do I fix this problem?
