Rebuild Gstreamer

Hi all,

I have a need to rebuild the gstreamer and gst-plugins in CentOS 7. So I found the wiki for rebuilding a source package… I downloaded the vault.CentOS.org files, installed them with dependencies.

I did the rpmbuild -ba for each of the four packages. All seemed to go well. No errors reported.

However – the /usr/bin/gst-inspect* listing shows the files as OLD
ls -l /usr/bin/gst-inspect*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 16000 Jun 9 2014 /usr/bin/gst-inspect
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 45488 Jun 9 2014 /usr/bin/gst-inspect-0.10
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 45552 Nov 20 2015 /usr/bin/gst-inspect-1.0

However the file was genereated as shows here:
pwd
/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/gstreamer-0.10.36/tools
[root@W530 tools]# ls -l gst-inspect*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 36632 Feb 7 08:42 gst-inspect
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 8436 Feb 7 08:42 gst-inspect-0.10
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 1768 Feb 7 08:42 gst-inspect-0.10.1
-rw-r–r– 1 silentm silentm 1768 Dec 11 2011 gst-inspect.1.in
-rw-r–r– 1 silentm silentm 53933 Feb 7 08:42 gst-inspect.c
-rw-r–r– 1 silentm silentm 47400 Dec 29 2011 gst-inspect.c.rpm-provides

So the package built… why did /usr/bin/gst-inspect* not match the above directory.

Did I miss something?
Thanks,

Jerry

  • Gordon,

    All I did was the rpmbuild -ba for each of the items: gsteamer and the plugins.

    I was expecting that command would build and install?

    If that is not the case what do you run to install the package for gstreamer and the plugins?

    THanks,

    Jerry

  • Hello Jerry,

    don’t know why you need to upgrade gst-inspect plugin. But I did update gstreamer plugin last year. If you like to take a view

    http://CentOS.cms4all.org/repo/7/gstreamer/

    cms4all.repo

    [cms4all-gstreamer]
    name=cms4all-gstreamer
    #baseurl=http://CentOS.cms4all.org/repo/7/gstreamer/
    baseurl=file:///srv/repo/CentOS/7/gstreamer gpgcheck=0
    enabled=1

    This are private package, does it fit or what you are looking for?

    Plays all my personaly files.

    Sincerely

    Andy

  • Hello Jerry,

    it is a little while back, but:

    First I’m analyse what the steps to do.

    – Unpack the packackge rpm -i
    that place it into my home folder /home/xxx/rpmbuild

    – make my changes

    – rpmbuild -bs rpmbuild/SPECS/..spec (file)

    . mock rpmbuild/SRPM/new.src.rpm (file) – creates a sandbox for
    build, doesn’T screw up your system.

    – move it to my repo location (createrepo) or install it by

    sudo yum install “new.rpm” (because of dependency check)

    Hm, that’s how rpm’s are build in most cases.

    Sincerely

    Andy

    ps: yum provides /usr/bin/gst-inspect -> tells you which (current)
    package.

  • When rpmbuild finishes, it will list the rpm packages that it generated. You can install those packages. They are not installed automatically.
