Istanbul relies on deprecated pygtk functions on FC6.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
Istanbul crashes on use on current FC6, it is relying on a deprecated pygtk
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6
2. yum install istanbul
3. from terminal run istanbul
4. Right click on tray icon
No python traceback (Sorry, I need istanbul working for now), would provide more
but this app really doesnt work on FC6 pygtk.
There is a newer version of istanbul that works with fc6, records voice and 3d also.
Hey Jef :).
See the thread on fedora-extras-list:
"Call for devel tree testing with an aim at resurrecting istanbul"
due to some rather serious limitations on bandwidth I'm forced to work through
others to get buildable packges out.
I hope to have something submitted to the build system next week. Though if
you want to take over maintainership of this... its yours.
Don't get your hopes up over 0.2.1's new claims as to functionality. So far on
my systems the gst 0.10 based versions has much worse video quality.. and
several of the advanced options like cursor recording make istanbul fall over
and die. I plan to get 0.2.1 into the tree... but i don't know how useful its
going to be.. concerning the video capture issues with the ximagesrc module
for gst 0.10.
closing as next release. 0.2.1 is built in fe-devel and is awaiting signing.
If there are functionality problems...drive the issues to the upstream
