x264, FFMpeg, wxWidgets et Aegisub RPMs pour Fedora 13

Aegisub is a powerful subtitle editor.
However, there is no official deb or rpm to install it easily on Debian and Red Hat based OS so we have to install it from the sources.

Many people have problems installing from the sources and getting everything to work as they want.
I recently compiled a working version of Aegisub on Linux Fedora Core 13 x86_64 and wanted to share the generated rpm.

This version is meant to work with a custom version of x264 and ffmpeg (built on today's snapshot, Aug. 22nd 2010) that decodes/encodes a wide range of audio and video codecs, including both free and non-free codecs.

The configure used during the compilation of ffmpeg and the codecs available from this build are shown here: ffmpeg-formats.txt
As you can see, this build is able to en/decode most of the video/audio formats.

To install Aegisub with this build of ffmpeg (and x264), just install the following rpms from the web browser:
x264-0.27-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm
libnut-0.0.0-1_r661.fc13.x86_64.rpm
ffmpeg-0.6-3.fc13.x86_64.rpm
wxWidgets-2.9.0-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm
aegisub-2.1.8-4749.fc13.x86_64.rpm

Or with these command lines (as root or sudo):

su -
wget http://rpms.dallagnese.fr/x264-0.27-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
     http://rpms.dallagnese.fr/libnut-0.0.0-1_r661.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
     http://rpms.dallagnese.fr/ffmpeg-0.6-3.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
     http://rpms.dallagnese.fr/wxWidgets-2.9.0-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
     http://rpms.dallagnese.fr/aegisub-2.1.8-4749.fc13.x86_64.rpm \

yum -y install --nogpgcheck x264-0.27-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
               libnut-0.0.0-1_r661.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
               ffmpeg-0.6-3.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
               wxWidgets-2.9.0-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
               aegisub-2.1.8-4749.fc13.x86_64.rpm

N.B.:

This is my first time making RPMs from my compilations, so this is not guaranteed to work!
If you try, please give me some feedback on how it works.

And please give me any comments, suggestions or critics you have!
