Output of typescript demonstrating the problem
1) The error message should be clearer
2) Now I am getting a message that gnome-media needs Xft.
1) What was confusing? The fact that it looked for gstreamer-0.5?
That was actually an optional check, the real error was from
gstreamer-libs-0.6. It is understandable to think that
gstreamer-libs-0.6 would be in gstreamer-devel, but there is no
required correlation between pkg-config module names and RPM package
names. In any case this isn't really a bug in gnome-media.
2) Install XFree86-devel. The BuildRequires in the latest package
should pick this up at least.
What was confusing was that is was talking about gstreamer not
2) I already have XFree86-devel installed. But the program is talking
about Xft not XFree86-devel?
Please stop closing this, the problem is still outstanding!
Xft is included in XFree86-devel. Without more information I can't
help you further.
