Fedora problems with dvd-slideshow and how to solve them

I’ve just returned from our holidays in Florence… nice city by the way, very nice in deep.

Since I’ve carried my DSLR Olympus E-510 with me I’ve done several photos, now I’m involved in the post production job

I wanna some photo slideshow that keeps amused my family on the TV so I search some software for Linux and I found that (in my opinion) most mature and proper software seems to be dvd-slideshow and it has just one but; there’s no GUI for more complicated command line options, it really doesn’t matters to me but may to you.

Installation and dependecy problems resolutions are not complicated in Fedora. The only thing I’ve to take care is to specify -p and -mp2 options in command line. The first one, -p is for generate PAL video output and the second one -mp2 is for generate mp2 audio since it crashes if try to let it with mp3 by default although I got the propers codecs installed.
