    video editing apps

    I am a newbie trying to convert from windows, have loaded Mandrake 10.1on to a clean system it has pretty much everything I need, quick to learn and works well. But I need to find a solid video editing app. Every app so far has not installed asking for further files to be present and these files then don't install because something else is missing (I understand this is part of the "fun" with Linux). Is there good self contained video app or am I stuck with windows for video editng
    Have tried
    mainactor v5
    kdenlive (included with mandrake)

    Firstly you should look into urpmi which is the Mandrake package manager, and should download all the files needed (these are known as dependanceis or 'deps'). You can read about urpmi in this software installing tutorial (about half way down is the part about urpmi).

    Now since you want some video editing software, I've heard good things about kino.

    have fun;

    video app install

    Thx for the reply
    Have tried to install kino and dvgrab which gives me

    error: avc1394.h not found, install libavc1394-devel

    and kino gives me error: avc1394.h not found, install libavc1394-devel

    urpmi tells me everything is installed and also libraw1394 is installed, but I don't understand the devel part of name as there appears to be nothing like this to be installed.
