Thanks for your email.

I executed the following commands one after the other, it exited showing at the bottom.

- git clone git://
- ./cerbero-uninstalled bootstrap

Can you please help me fixing this?
Apart from this, Don’t I need to download the gstreamer code explicitly? If not needed, how do I control version of gstreamer cerbero downloads?

However I would recommend to use the following cerbero branch "upstream-1.0" instead of the old 0.10 version:

For that replace the "package" step from the instructions with "package gstreamer-1.0" instead of "package gstreamer-sdk".
