1.0.5b1 of gmtk, gnome-mplayer and gecko-mediaplayer

Announcing the release of version 1.0.5b1 of the following packages


The building of these packages is a little different than 1.0.4 due to the addition of gmtk.

gmtk is a common library that is used by gnome-mplayer and gecko-mediaplayer. So build and install it first, it should auto configure for most situations

About the only options you will need other than the prefix and the libdir are the following

--enable-gtk3 or --disable-gtk3

And then to select the backend for preference stores, either let the application configure it self to choose the best option or pick _one_ of these

--enable-gsettings   GTK 2.26 or higher required for this one

On Fedora 15 (x86_64) I use the following command to configure gmtk

./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64

Once gmtk is compiled and installed build gnome-mplayer and then gecko-mediaplayer. They will use the version of gtk and backend that were chosen in gmtk, so no need to re-specify those options. So please check your flags if you have scripted these builds in the past.
