The Buzztard Project, Part 1

"As mentioned, Buzztard's current public release is version 0.4.0. Alas, Buzztard may not be included in your distribution software repositories, and if it is listed it's unlikely to be the latest release. For example, neither my Ubuntu 8.10 nor my 64 Studio systems list Buzztard in their main repos, and only version 0.3.1 is available for my JAD 1.0 system. For the latest & greatest version you'll need to compile and install it from the public tarball or the SVN sources. Fortunately the build process is relatively straightforward, and complete instructions are available on the Buzztard home page.

"Buzztard's audio capabilities depend on an up-to-date installation of the GStreamer software. GStreamer will be treated to its own future article, so for now we merely need to know that it provides the media-handling mechanisms for Buzztard and that you'll need the most recent GStreamer to build the latest version of Buzztard."
