I'm using:
%if %suse_version >= 1030
%define _prefix			/usr
%define _prefix			/opt/gnome

so I think my gstreamer is installed in /usr for 10.3, see also the output 
from the examples...

the only one was gstreamer010-libschroeder and gstreamer010-fluendo-mpegmux, 
and those two where fixed today.

that's exactly what I want. All gstreamer010 packages from packman or 
nothing :)

ok, this can be done after you proved that pm related packages are the "bad 

only as an example:
rpm -qlp repos/packman/openSUSE/10.3/i586/gstreamer010-0.10.14-0.pm.2.i586.rpm
second example:
rpm -qlp 

so please deliver the exact package names and version ...

have fun
