hi sameer here....
im new to gstreamer...
i got some problem that needs some urgent attention... plz try to help
it goes like this.

i had installed the gstreamer-0.8 rpms on my fedora core 3, i386 system, 
and it worked well...i could rum the example in the docs and test it 
with some modifications too...

then since gstreamer-0.10 has been released i am interested in making 
the switch right away. and since the rpm's aren't released at the moment 
i decided to compile the sources my self.

so first of all i upgraded my glib libraries.. ran configure with 
"--prefix=/usr" option
and then i installed gstreamer and the other stuff with the same 
"--prefix=/usr" option..
the pakages i've installed are:


i was'nt able to install the gst_python-0.10.0 pakage though...

now heres the problem
if i run the following command
[root at nextbitcpu ~]# gst-inspect-0.10
i get the following output:

coreindexers:  memindex: A index that stores entries in memory
coreindexers:  fileindex: A index that stores entries in file
coreelements:  capsfilter: CapsFilter
coreelements:  fakesrc: Fake Source
coreelements:  fakesink: Fake Sink
coreelements:  fdsrc: Disk Source
coreelements:  filesrc: File Source
coreelements:  identity: Identity
coreelements:  queue: Queue
coreelements:  filesink: File Sink
coreelements:  tee: Tee pipe fitting
coreelements:  typefind: TypeFind
staticelements:  bin: Generic bin
staticelements:  pipeline: Pipeline object

and thats all...no ffmpeg,mad and so on

even if i try
# gst-inspect-0.10 osssink
i get the error msg
"No such element or plugin 'osssink'"

and this is the same for most of the plug-ins that i used in gstreamer-0.8

i used the following commands to compile all the above mentioned sources
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install
gst-register (for gstreamer-0.10)

i cant figure out whats happening...

i need help deperately, im sure u guys will help me out on this one
thanks in advance
waiting for ur replies...

Warm Regards
