Yep, that one is easy.

Never had any problems to get it compiled in. However, I doubt many will
have DirectFB RPMs installed, especially because there seems not to be
any DirectFB-RPM-packages out there. I myself installed it as a rpm with
checkinstall. <http://checkinstall.izto.org> Could make a working spec
file for it easily.

I don't know :-) It is still in CVS v2003.08.25: "--enable fame" and
I still happen to have libfame installed on the system, so... never
used it though as I seldom encode anything in this system.

Yes, that is easy. I basically just have it compiled in because it is
possible. I sometimes have tested if it would make any changes in speed
as it is said to be "Decompression is simple and *very* fast."

Compiling is easy if just libdv-devel-*.rpm is installed.

I hope the official RPM packages then some day when released will have
GPG-signatures. MD5sums without signatures is just false sense of security.
Integrity without authenticity can be dangerous.
