  Hi Hartmut,

Your post, and Toni's answer, perked my curiousity, so I gave Tony's 
suggestion a try on my old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M laptop, which is 
still running openSUSE-11.1 (it needs to run 11.1 since the kernels 
after the 2.6.27 kernel don't work with the i855GM hardware in this laptop).

I updated the openSUSE-11.1 KDE4 desktop software on this laptop to the 
latest KDE-4.4.4 from the KDE4 stable repository (as opposed to 
KDE-4.1.3 which comes with openSUSE-11.1).  I then ensured my Packman 
packaged apps were up to date, and then downloaded to /home/oldcpu the 
kde4-kdenlive- from the packman web site.  Next 
I opened a terminal, and ran:

rpmbuild --rebuild kde4-kdenlive-

which gave me a very large list of 'devel' rpms that I needed to 
install.  I installed all of those rpms, and again I ran

rpmbuild --rebuild kde4-kdenlive-

which after a long time on this old laptop successfully built the 
kde4-kdenlive rpm (placing it in /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i586).  I 
installed that custom built rpm (using toni's .src file) on my 
openSUSE-11.1, and then I ran kdenlive and it ran well.  Amazingly well 
actually. :) This is with mlt -0.5.6-1.pm.1.8.  The fact that it was 
that simple to build is a testament to Toni having a very well build 
.src file.

Hartmut, give it a try.

Toni, many thanks for the idea and for building a good .src file.

I'm amazed that this old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M laptop (w/intel 
i855GM graphics, 1.2 GB RAM, and a 1.5 GHz Intel CPU) can actually run
