Download instructions for Red Hat Linux 9

GStreamer is distributed with Red Hat Linux 9. If you want to get updates, you can use the repository hosted by us, which is compatible with and This repository has both packages not in the base distribution mirrored from those two sites, as well as packages created by us and submitted back to those two repositories.

Our repository

Here's the five step guide to getting our packages.

  1. You can use either yum or apt for rpm. The current repository contains packages built using mach for the Red Hat Linux 9 platform.

    If you use apt, then add these two lines to your sources.list file, or your sources.list directory:

    rpm redhat/9/i386 deps gst
    rpm-src redhat/9/i386 deps gst

    If you use yum. add these lines to your yum.conf file:

    name=Red Hat Linux $releasever - $basearch - GStreamer dependencies
    name=Red Hat Linux $releasever - $basearch - GStreamer

  2. Import the GPG key for this repository if you haven't already done so:
    Get it:
    Verify it:
    gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 55f3aa6f
    gpg --list-keys | grep Stichele
    gpg --export -a 55f3aa6f > tmp
    diff tmp thomas.pubkey
    Import it into rpm:
    As root, run
    rpm --import thomas.pubkey
  3. Install all GStreamer packages:
    • Using apt:
      apt-get update
      apt-get install gstreamer-universe
    • Using yum:
      yum install gstreamer-universe
  4. If this gives problems, it is probably due to you having installed packages from another repository. Try removing those packages, or only installing part of the GStreamer package set.

    You can also browse the repository.
