Cool Unable to compile gstreamer from source


I am a complete NOOB when it comes to linux.

Im running Fedora8

I get this error.
checking for LIBOIL... configure: error: liboil-0.3.8 or later is required


rpm -qa|grep liboil
liboil-0.3.12-11.fc8

rpm -ql liboil
/usr/lib/liboil-0.3.so.0
/usr/lib/liboil-0.3.so.0.1.0
/usr/share/doc/liboil-0.3.12
/usr/share/doc/liboil-0.3.12/ChangeLog+

yum install liboil
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
updates 100% |=========================| 2.6 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package liboil - 0.3.12-11.fc8.i386 is already installed.
Nothing to do

So I see the latest version is installed as per YUM. But the system is not seeing it.

Any help would be appreciated.

hi ,you do know that on Jan. 7 fedora 8 reached it's End Of Life and there will be no more software updates - EVER .

you need the liboil-devel.rpm
Code:
yum search liboil
su -
yum install liboil-devel
-------- and why not install the gstreamer.rpm
yum install gstreamer

Welcome to Linux Questions.

Quote:

When "configure" asks for a library, it always means
"library-devel", in order to have /usr/include/files.h
and /usr/lib/library.so .

Method to look for liboil : # yum search liboil
( Will return : liboil, liboil-devel )

Also try : # yum search gstreamer
No need to compile gstreamer, should be available
as packages. ( If all support hasn't ended yet ? )

Thank You for the quick reply.

liboil may no longer be available for fedora 8 .Livna moved to rpmfusion install that repo
the rpmfusion repo.rpm should be in livna
Code:
yum repolist
to see what repos are running
and
Code:
yum search rpmfusion
but fedora 8 is NO LONGER SUPPORTED !
