Question a version trouble about gstreamer

I trying to play my music(.mp3) on my new slackware laptop(13.37), what I used is clementine, and it tells me
GStreamer could not create the element: uridecodebin. Please make sure that you have installed all necessary GStreamer plugins (e.g. OGG and MP3)
So I trying to update my gstreamer to 0.10.35, but I could not complied it with only the souce code, so I find a slackbuild script for it, then it installed, but while I trying to install the "gst-plugins-base 0.10.35", it says
configure: Requested 'gstreamer-0.10 >= 0.10.34' but version of GStreamer is 0.10.33
, but I'm really sure that in pkgtool it shows that the GSTreamer is 0.10.35

It puzzled me, what's wrong with it/me?

Hope you guys happy everyday! Amen!

mp3 is a propriety codec that is not installed by default on most distros. I'm not sure how to do this in Slackware, but in Ubuntu you have to activate the non-free repositories and install the restricted extras packages.

Yes, the mp3 decodec is in the package "gst-plugins-ugly", but the package "gst-plugins-base" should be installed at first
