So we have the problem, where currently on SeaMonkey linux build machines we hit:

checking for gstreamer-0.10 >= 0.10.25
                      gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10... configure: error: gstreamer and gstreamer-plugins-base development packages are needed to build gstreamer backend. Install them or disable gstreamer support with --disable-gstreamer

The largest problem is that we don't have the ability to update to 0.10.25 on a RHEL5 machine from what I can tell.

The problem with that is gstreamer is disabled *by default* anyway, so expending too much effort to get this lib added is probably not worth it...

[comm-central] fix mozconfigs to disable gstreamer

Review of attachment 766499 [details] [diff] [review]:

Actually, I think I just read that Firefox is turning it on but preffing it off for now in 24 (currently trunk). But still, it's better to have us build and not support gstreamer for now than not build but support it.

I hope some kind of new builders with newer OS are in the plans, though. ;-)

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 SeaMonkey/2.23a1 ID:20130810003001 c-c:854f8af28f57 m-c:c5946a8bcd5b

Linux builds are appearing again for both for both i686 (interrupted 26-Jul) and x86_64 (interrupted 21-Apr, see bug 890594). Mac and win32 builds are also being made but I don't remember if and when building had been interrupted on those platforms. Unless there is some reason not to, I suppose this bug may be RESOLVED FIXED.
