have you build gstreamer (the core package) with --enable-gst-debug. Only
then debug-logging is enabled. Anther thing to check is that you don't mix
prefixes. Many ditributions install stuff with --prefix=/usr and your
self-compiled stuff goes to /usr/local. Check /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10 and
/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-0.10. You can either build you modified
plugins-base with --prefix=/usr or use GST_PLUGIN_PATH env var to point to
the plugins in /usr/local.
