Debian multimedia buffs will need the archives at
http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ in their repository list (for things
like Lame, etc).

It's Cinelerra Version 2.0.0-3, which has an RPM binary on
sourceforge.net The supporting libraries need are libguicast, libmpeg3hv
and libquicktimehv, likely on sourceforge somewhere.

I had intended to use 'alien' to convert the RPM to a DEB.  I had used
'alien' in the past and it usually does very well with Userland
packages, less well with services that need to start at boot time.  It
would be in cases like this, with multiple library dependencies, that
cause the most grief.  I would have had to figure out I needed the other
three packages (and possibly others), what the RPM package name was and
get those installed to get it to work. 

Since there are no binary complies available for Version 2,1 on
sourceforge.net, I just consider it the development version of Cinelera.

The AMD64 distribution (which supports em64t) is part of Etch AKA
Testing. All current repositories should have it. They are hoping to
release it as stable by the end of the year.
