I have found yet another bundled lib in my review request 2140
(bombono). The lib is Adobe Source Libraries (ASL), a large,
general-purpose addon to STL and boost. The situation:
- bombono includes some files from ASL, clearly a bundling situation.
- ASL depends on boost 1.44, two versions behind current 1.46.
- The nature of ASL (large, general-purpose) probably means that they
will always lag boost by one or more versions. At least, this is what
the release history shows.
So, packaging ASL means dependencies on an outdated boost version. To be
frank, I have no idea how to handle this.
Any ideas, out there?
I have been using rpmfusion for Fedora for ages and I have recently
introduced it here for RHEL6. However one thing it seems to lack are any
multimedia tools. For me these would include mplayer, VLC and the codecs
Totem looks for when asked to play non-built in file types.
Any plans to build these for RHEL6?

Bug #: 2140
Summary: bombono-dvd - DVD authoring program with nice and
Product: Package Reviews
Component: Review Request
Bombono DVD is an easy to use program for making DVD-Video. The main features
are an excellent MPEG viewer with time line, a real WYSIWYG menu editor with
live thumbnails and monitor, and comfortable Drag-N-Drop support. Authoring
to folder, making an ISO-image or burning directly to DVD as well as
re-authoring by importing video from DVD discs is also supported.
Why not Fedora: package linked to ffmpeg libs.
rpmplint: 2 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
This is my first RPMfusion package, I need a sponsor.
I have tried to do my homework by checking the review guidelines, see
Besides other possible problems, here are issues on bundled libraries
which need to be resolved in a review process.

If at all possible, could someone please update mplayer?
The latest release -- 20110816 -- has some bugs in that caused many of
my videos to not work. It forced me to stick with the version before
that -- 20110412. Staying with the previous version of mplayer means
I'm staying with the previous version of it's prerequisites, which in
turn is preventing me from upgrading to Firefox 10.
Those bugs have since been fixed, but rpmfusion hasn't released an
update for mplayer. I've been trying many different way to update the
package myself, but my lack of familiarity of the lack of help from the
mplayer community has made this a frustrating experience.
I was hoping one of the mplayer maintainers could step up to the
challenge, or at least provide me some help to do so.

after taking care of mplayer in F-17+ I have tried to check which is the
latest mplayer compiling w/ ffmpeg in F-16. The answer is 2011-09-24
snapshot, aka r34129 - in r34130 CODEC_ID_G729 was added, which is
missing from ffmpeg-0.8 branch.
This is almost a month fresher than what we have now, and limited
testing shows it fixes  at least.
The question is why Rathann chose to update to 2011-08-16 (r34996)
snapshot on 23rd September. Rathann, do you happen to remember? Were
there any things blocking update to later snapshot?
If not, I would like to update mplayer in F-16 to the latest possible
One of my packages, imagination, relies on sox for audio support. Of
course this is provided by Fedora with MP3 disabled and can not be
duplicated in RPM Fusion.
I remember a review request that used a binary diff to add whatever
was not allowed in Fedora, and although it seems a rather messy way to
do things, I'd be willing to maintain it if there were sufficient
