Description Sebastien Cote 2005-10-18 16:04:37 UTC
Start by installing gst-plugins-base in a folder which is not in your

The Libs flags in gstreamer-plugins-base-0.9.pc is empty. Since some plugins in
gst-plugins-good depend on gst-plugins-base (like libgstriff), gst-plugins-good
doesn't build.

The problem is not detected by the configure script, the build just fails when
compiling the avi plugin.

proposed fix

This patch fixes the build issue by setting the flags for linking against

Marking as blocker since gst-plugins-good-0.9.7 doesn't compile if
gstreamer-0.9.7 and gst-plugins-base-0.9.7 aren't installed in the same directory.
