gstreamer0.8 plugins problems.


Hello everyone.

First, im glad to enter this forum. First post .

Like every linux user, i want to get the most out of my system.
I want everything.

I have a huge library of AAC audio files on my windows partition.

I need to install gstreamer0.8-faad ( d for decoder) in order to play these files in Rhythmbox ( hard to write :lol

I edited my etc/apt/sources.list with a new unsupported repository that countains the gstreamer0.8 plugins

cought

The problem is, these files are not for A64 .

But i can have the source so

apt-get source --compile gstreamer0.8-faad


Code:
root@amd64:/etc/apt/gst-plugins0.8-0.8.7 # apt-get source --compile gstreamer0.8-faad

Build command ‘cd gst-plugins0.8-0.8.7 && dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc’ failed.
E: Child process failed
It does not work. Okay. Ill compile it myself then

Cd directory.

With my first ./configure, i learned that i had no g++ compiler

The second one still does not work because i need GStreamer.

This post is getting big

What i learned from the README ( i hope) is that you need to be a mega cool geek developper to have GStreamer core.

Which im not.

To install the plugins without the core , i have 2 solutions

COMPILING FROM SOURCE
---------------------
- make sure you compiled and at least did a test-run of GStreamer (core)
- check output of ./configure --help to see if any options apply to you
- configure the source tree:
- if you installed GStreamer, then do:
./configure
If configure complains about missing GStreamer, you should try
./configure --with-pkg-config-path=prefix/lib/pkgconfig
where prefix should be replaced by the prefix you used to configure
GStreamer. (Be mindful NOT to ADD a trailing / to that option !)
If this doesn't fix it, you have other issues

- if you didn't install GStreamer, you can still compile the plug-ins.
Add the path to gstreamer-uninstalled.pc (which lives in the gstreamer
source tree) to PKG_CONFIG_PATH
or run configure --with-pkg-config-path=(path to gstreamer uninstalled)

- the output of configure will give you a list of plug-ins with external
dependencies (ie, depending on other libs, see below). By no means
should you try to get them all built on your first run. This is hard
enough as it is Resist the urge to get the most features for now.
It doesn't list all of the non-depending plug-ins, which get built
regardless (unless you explicitly asked it not to).

I don't understand this
