Right... istanbul. I wasn't going to start with that. I have to take
a close look at what gstreamer is available for each epel branch. I
do remember that gstreamer 0.10 good plugins was missing the
necessary video capture module in at least one Fedora release, which
has consequences on which istanbul codebase version that has to be used.
Not to diss istanbul or anything, but the gstreamer framework
complicates things. Have you look at the other option in this area...
gtk-recordmydesktop and recordmydesktop... which does not rely on gst
at all and is using libraries directly. I haven't made a comparison
myself, but I'm concerned that the gst framework might make istanbul
problematic to maintain for EPEL.
I was in a hurry and recompiling istanbul +
python-xlib for centos
5/i386 took < 30 min so i did not look at recordmydesktop (despite the
fact that I've done "cvs co recordmydesktop" immediately after "cvs co
istanbul" but before "make srpm istanbul"). These are the versions I
packaged and used :
