    hello,
    i have downloaded the gstreamer from following location
    gstreamer download for red hat-google( its not allowing urls here)

    and i placed in the root/Zoom directory.

    now i want to install that on my system so that i can devolop some gstreamer related applications and run it.

    now how i need to install it on my system.
    i never installed any thing in linux yet ( new user) so i dont have idea which file goes where.

    please guide how to install.

    my general doubt is where actually i need to place files if i want to install on linux.

    thanks.

    Welcome my friend!
    to know how to install software read this:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...are-linux.html
    i suggest you to install software using your package manager Yum.
    Feel free to ask question if you face any problem.

    That gstreamer download that you are using is for red hat 9.0 and it is a source rpm. Are you using red hat 9.0 (if so why, since it is extremely old)? Why are you trying to build from source rather than install regular RPM or use yum package manager?

    i tried installing ubuntu 9.04, but it did not install properly.
    actually i have taken this initiative of gstreamer two months ago.
    but i failed to get downloadable image(ubuntu) ( i downloaded image from ubuntu site but i could not make it as a bootable CD and tried variuos forums for help but every one suggested by providing the links which i already know rather than understanding my problem)so i was frustated and requsted free CD( it takes time to get that) . but i cannot wait till that CD comes . and i decided to install it on RED hat which i already have.


    i am literally crying here because i am new to linux, have less knowledge of commands , directories , installation procedures , and versions.


    Please guide me i will be very thank full to this forums .
    at least got two replies .( posted the same problem in another forum still no reply )

    as far as i know, downloadable image is available here:
    Download Ubuntu | Ubuntu
    and you have to burn it, but not as data cd, you have to choose "burn image to disk" it simply create bootable cd.

    hey man! this forum is the best across the globe as far as linux's world is concerned. people here are so friendly that you can only imagine.
    you will get best advise here. all you need is to use recent distro that provide best support.
    you are using source RPM, it's bit difficult. instead use regular RPM.
    you can find them here:
    Index of /pkg/redhat/9/i386/RPMS.gst
