$ git clone
$ cd tenacity
2. Configure Tenacity using CMake:
$ mkdir build && cd build
$ cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -Duse_ffmpeg=loaded ../tenacity
$ cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -Duse_ffmpeg=loaded ..
By default, Debug build will be configured. To change that, pass `-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release` to CMake.
3. Build Tenacity:
$ make -j`nproc`
Note that this may slow your computer down quite a bit. To avoid this, you can use the alternate command:
$ make -j$(($(nproc)-2))
This will use 2 fewer CPU cores than the default, which is to use the absolute maximum number of cores. Feel free to change this to `make -j$(($(nproc)-3))` if you want to use (MAX-3) cores, or any other custom values.
Alternatively, you can manually specify the number of CPU cores to use:
$ make -j2
# Uses only 2 cores
4. Testing the build:
Adding a "Portable Settings" folder allows Tenacity to ignore the settings of any existing Tenacity installation.
