ok, all I wanted is somebody to certify that gst works on RH9 :-P, it's
now fixed

they are supposed to be integrated in the gnome control center menu so
they should appear in applications/desktop settings/system tools, but
that's an issue to solve, since they aren't for desktop settings...

I agree, but I'll change them in 0.27 :-P, (tonight 0.26.1 should be

You're right, we need other icons that could represent the same and are

I just wanted to wait what would happen with such program, but adding a
dependence to it and removing the gst-dialog functions is trivial

hmmm, I think that sometimes it takes so much time for just showing a
busy cursor, it might be worth to talk more deeply

hmmm, it shows an icon in the list, just beside the interface name...

hmmm, maybe... I'll have a look at this

that's still a to-do, it does automatic device assignment, but it
