Thread: Mplayer update problem

    Default Mplayer update problem

    I'm running 10.3, 64 bit version.

    I recently updated Mplayer to a new version, using Yast. The new version
    appeared to not work. Trying to run it from the console, I get

    mplayer: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libschroedinger-1.0.so.0:
    undefined symbol: oil_function_class_ptr_multiply_and_acc_8xn_s16_u8

    Thinking I might need a new libschroedinger, I removed both mplayer and
    libschroedinger using Yast, then reinstalled mplayer, so Yast's
    dependency analysis caused libschroedinger to be reinstalled.

    It still doesn't work, with exactly the same error message.

    Any suggestions?

    Ian

    Which repository's to you have? If you have both the videolan and packman repos it can cause issues like this, so you should never add both of them.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I did indeed have both of these repos enabled. So I
    1. Disabled videolan
    2. deleted mplayer, libschroedinger and libx264-65 packages, using Yast
    3. refreshed packman repo.
    4. reinstalled mplayer, using Yast, which reinstalled the above 2 libs.
    Installation proceeded cleanly with no error messages.

    Mplayer still appears not to work, and running from shell still gives
    the same error message as above.

    HELP!

    I'm by no means an expert, but if it's installed correctly then maybe you have a driver issue? Have you tried installing vlc (at least temporarily) to see if it's able to play videos? (vlc mostly uses it's own muxer/demuxer, so if it works you may be able to weed out driver related issues and focus on mplayter codec/rendiring issues).

    OMG, you're completely clueless. Symbol lookup errors have nothing to do with driver issues. it's a problem in mplayer which contains a function/pointer/whatever that points/calls to a non-existent one in libschroedinger. Lookup errors won't prevent you from installing something, they only pop up when you actually try to run the program

    Also, VLC doesn NOT use its own muxers/demuxers. MPlayer, VLC, Xine and any other video player for Linux is built around libavcodec/libavformat, which is part of ffmpeg

    To the OP: the only way to fix your problem is either compile from source or contact the packman team and tell them about this problem
