I run debian squeeze updated this week.

Steps to reproduce: after loading all dependencys according to the debian source pkg.
1) Extrac the VLC source in /usr/src (i get a directory named vlc-1.1.3)
2)configure : # ./configure --enable-run-as-root : résult ok.
3)Compile using make or ./compile : result ok
4) Launch vlc from the current directory as well:#./vlc result OK (work find)

5) Try to make the .deb file as describe in "building package" "DEBIAN"
To build a Debian package, you need to get the packaging info
svn co svn:// debian (ok)
and then
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc (fail)

the results are :
dpkg-source: info: utilisation du format source « 1.0 »
dpkg-source: info: construction de vlc dans vlc_1.0.0-git-1.tar.gz
dpkg-source: info: construction de vlc dans vlc_1.0.0-git-1.dsc

It seem to be a bug in the patch file 104_notify.diff, and I am unable to solve it.

Could you please note this probleme ?

Attached the log file of this step.

LOCALE LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 is not acting in vlc, it remain in LANG=us

No way to decode the sound of a video stream with mpeg AAC audio (mp4a), movie ok, no sound. Same bug for HDTV stream, video ok but no sound.
