ffmpeg render help - Ubuntu 8.10

Help. I am running the latest blender build from graphicall.org under Ubuntu 8.10. I just finished a quick test, and I want to render. Before, I would use ffmpeg and set all my rendering there. But not, under a new ubuntu install(I ended up losing my old ubuntu install to this and that), I do not have an ffmpeg render option. I do have ffmpeg installed on my computer, I used to to convert an ogg video to image sequence to import into blender. Thanks


Maybe you downloaded a version that has been compiled without FFMPEG. I compile my own and have the option to save as FFMPEG.
