Why is it that every decent multimedia production tool always requires stuff 
to build its tarball that is not part of the fedora repositories?

I have now failed for the second time to build a video editing application 
that is compatible with the camera I have, and the multimedia build tools 
available for fedora.  Most recently, kino, which FWIW I had running 
flawlessly on FC2.

2 weeks ago I gave up building OpenMovieEditor for the same reason, its 
dependencies simply cannot be satisfied on an F8 system.

Here is the exit stanza for a 'make' in the kino src tree, most recent 

In file included from
../frame.h:51:35: error: libavcodec/avcodec.h: No such file or directory
../frame.h:52:37: error: libavformat/avformat.h: No such file or directory

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kino-1.3.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Those files are similar to the failure of OpenMovieEditor, which if I could 
build, I might be able to use, but I still need kino to manage the video 
importation from my camera, which has a firewire port and handles video in 
real time, something that I don't believe OpenMovieEditor can manage.

I've been with redhat/fedora for a bit over 10 years now for my main machine.  
When F8 support ends, I think that will be grounds for a divorce.  I'm tired 
of the "keep the good stuff on the other side of the pond for legal reasons" 
BS that is endlessly repeated from Research Triangle Park.  Why the hell 
should we be 2nd class citizens?

Cheers, Gene
