Installing kino in Fedora 11... libdv not found?

Just did a clean install of F11 on a machine that had had F10 on it. The F10 machine also had been updated to play DVDs (libdvdcss...?)

I was able to "yum install" kino or use the package manager to install it on my F10 machine (nonstandard repository?), but not finding it with package manager in F11.

I have downloaded the source package for kino and and following the installation instructions, but the "./configure" step tells me that libdv is not there:


checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for LIBDV... configure: error: Package requirements (libdv >= 0.103) were not met:

No package 'libdv' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBDV_CFLAGS
and LIBDV_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

[root@notebook kino-1.3.4]# yum install libdv

Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package libdv-1.0.0-7.fc11.i586 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do


I am at this point in the README file:

1. Install libdv
2. Install libraw1394
3. Install libavc1394
4. Install libiec61883
5. test capture using dvgrab. (You may find that you need to enable DMA on
your IDE hard drive using the hdparm utility.)
You can get dvgrab from
6. Install libsamplerate
7. Install Kino:
sudo make install

Any guidance would be appreciated. My jaw dropped at how well Kino worked under F10, and I formatted my Vista partition to make more space on the hard drive for home video files.

problem [solved]... kino is in rpmfusion repository

I went to the rpmfusion website and used their rpm to add the repository to my packages system. Then, kino shows up in the package list.


editing, kino, video
