Basically, the GStreamer-0.8.x and GStreamer-0.10.x series are for most
purposes like completely independent libraries. They can be installed at
the same time and know nothing about each other. Plugins for each series
are installed into separate locations as well and are not compatible.

In short: you will need to install

 * gstreamer core (0.8.12)
 * gst-plugins (0.8.12)

for Aldegonde. You'll need nothing GStreamer-0.10-related for Aldegonde.

Having said that, you should really go for GStreamer-0.10 if you are
just starting with GStreamer, since GStreamer-0.8 isn't maintained any
longer (for all practical purposes at least).
