The current package for cheese throws up the following error in the beta and needs to be rebuilt against the newer gstreamer.

Code: Select all

One or more needed gstreamer elements are missing: gconfaudiosrc, gconfvideosink
I'm still refreshing my memory on building slack packages. Could some kind soul rebuild this one for me?
I don't think - I am

--> you need to adjust at least the version (and maybe arch for x86_64 if needed) in SlackBuild and download the current tar.bz2.

# slapt-get -search cheese
cheese-2.24.3-i486-1gv [inst=no]: cheese - take pictures and videos from a webcam
Is it really a problem of cheese itself or maybe better some of gstreamer?
This is the oppinion of the author, it does not force you to share and is signed automatically.
You are free to keep them all errors for your own. Linux is the best game I ever played.

omns, are you sure you have all gstreamer packages installed? salix-codecs-installer should take care of that if you haven't. If you have, then it's probably a bug with one of the gstreamer packages.
