This is how ends for me:

checking for /etc/mandrake-release... no
checking for /etc/redhat-release... no
checking for /etc/fedora-release... no
checking for /etc/gentoo-release... no
checking for /etc/debian_version... yes
Your distribution(debian) is not yet supported!  (patches welcome)

And in the TODO file I can read this:

- Support static IP addresses

We need to support static IP addresses for interfaces.  This should be
done by parsing the normal /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files.


I don't mean to be harsh, but I expect more of a standard, [1] the GST
backends are almost in a 1.0 stage, support lots of distros, will be
distributed separatedly after gnome 2.8 (and gst 1.0) and will be
proposed to fdo. They are thought for this kind of problems, why not
using them?


[1] I'm getting tired of telling this again and again
