Description of problem:
Gstreamer 0.10 and the plugins are available. Is it possible to make them before Fedora Core 5 Test 2?
Gstreamer website already provides srpms packages on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to 0.10 version

The problem with getting GStreamer 0.10 in is will we have to still support
Gstreamer 0.8? If all apps are ported to 0.10 or an app in Core absolutely
requires it then it can go in but for now it is probubly better to get it into
extras. If it is packaged in extras then it will be easier to move it to core
when the time is right. As per core policy we can not just add library
packages. There has to be another app that depends on it.
Current gstreamer apps in fedora core + extra as I know of:
Rhythmbox and totem have 0.10 ports.
Istanbul, gnome-media and soundconverter might not have ports but shouldn't be
Amarok have got patches but i don't think there will be a stable release any
There are probably more packages depending on gstreamer.
The gstreamer 0.10 packages may be installed in parallel with the 0.8 packages.
Because of this, I think we should get the ball rolling in Extras. the
gst-launch utility will provide much to test as we await desktop applications to
Many modules have not yet been ported to the 0.10 framework. Therefore, we are
not only awaiting applications, but also plugins.
See the following package proposals:
I have provided very fine grained packages in order to address bug #108463.
Each module that require an external media library is provided in a separate
Wierd timing. Warren Togammi, worked on getting this in core today and it is
almost there pending the transition of gstreamer08 packages (gstreamer-0.10 will
now be the gstreamer pakages in core and 0.8 is moving to gstreamer-0.8).
Should be built tomorrow morning.
Well, I guess I go and Ctrl-C my ongoing compile...Thanks, John. I've been
using the packages on my Fedora Raw Hide box for a few days and they seem to
Can we convince Warren to address bug #108463 in his packages?
Well, I still own the packages. I'll look into it. I don't want to split them
up too much but gnome/kde sub packages do make some sense.
Should this bug report be closed now that gstreamers version 0.10 is available
I'll close it after I get all the apps either ported or ref the correct
gstreamer version. Thanks
All apps ported now, right John ?
All core apps are, yes
Assuming thats the case.
