RCS & RDS lanseaza internetul mobil Digi Net Mobil cu abonamente de pana la 15 lei

Meaning .. our ISP finally launches mobile internet..
I/We already have mobile* from them (+ internet + phone + tv), so no *new* subscription (and other tools - i guess) needed.

Some weeks ago I wanted to buy an usb modem from Orange but I bought a WRT54GL instead.

* the mobile is theoretically a 3G phone.. but only the SIM card is. (meaning no 3G services are available with it, or with other 3G compatible phone)

gstreamer stuff on OpenSolaris

I've compiled some "encumbered" stuff for gstreamer. (and added the mp3 codec available from fluendo.com)

if you want to give it a try.. download them:

gstplugins support a wide range of audio + video codecs

install instructions:
download it, unpack it, put it in /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/

so:

mkdir /tmp/gst
cd /tmp/gst

wget http://pkgsrc.sartek.net/gst/gstplugins.tar.gz

gtar xf gstplugins.tar.gz

pfexec cp gstplugins/* /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/

cd
rm -r /tmp/gst
