Thread: nonexistant 11.4 repository files

  1. #1

    Default nonexistant 11.4 repository files

    I tried to install an application to view MOV files with gwenview. It wanted H.264. That led to an attempt to download mplayer over my dial-up connection.

    About half a dozen files required were not available. I have Packman, openSuse Update, 11.4 enabled. Most of the nonexistant files seemed to be mplayer files. I couldn't pick up the file names with the mouse to past in here.

    After being disappointed with 12.1 I reinstalled 11.4. Google shows lot of repositories for mplayer, but none for 11.4.

    Am I too late to install openSuse mplayer on 11.4? Maybe the nonexisting files are being moved to another repository.

    As a last resort I suppose I could download mplayer as a tarball and use that. Have I covered most of my options? heboland

    MPlayer is in Packman
    Having dial up is not so good
    So for me to point you to the multimedia guide might not help so much

    Did you know someone packages multimedia that you can download and save and use as a local repo. Maybe you could get that?

    Then you just use that and the default repos: oss, non-oss, updates

    As far as I know, all needed mplayer files for 11.4 are in packman. I have
    it from there. That you are using a modem only means that it will take much
    longer for you, there is no other difference.

    Thanks for the responses guys!

    This morning I tried to install mplayer with zypper so I could get some specifics to show. My dial-up is slow but it works. I have unlimited use so downloads can run overnight.

    zypper behaved like this:

    You have "auto-refresh" disabled. So you need to run 'zypper ref' first, then 'zypper in mplayer'

    Thank you Knurpht!
    Nice job of remote trouble-shooting!

    On dial-up the repository refresh often takes more time than the SW update!

    zypper is so smart, I expected it would do a refresh if necesary after comparing refresh dates.

    So with your advice I got mplayer, but I'm still missing the file that started all of this off - H.264 that gwenview wanted to display MOV files.

    When I put H.264 into the yast SW management it wants this:

    h264enc-9.4.1-2.noarch

    so I tried to enlist the help of zypper again.

    root[501] zypper in h264enc-9.4.1-2.noarch
    System management is locked by the application with pid 5387 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base).
    Close this application before trying again.
    root[502] zypper in h264enc-9.4.1-2.noarch
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Package 'h264enc-9.4.1-2.noarch' not found.
    Resolving package dependencies...

    Nothing to do.
    root[502] zypper ref
    Repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.4 11.4-0' is up to date.
    Repository 'Packman Repository' is up to date.
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.4-Non-Oss' is up to date.
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.4-Oss' is up to date.
    All repositories have been refreshed.
    root[503]

    Do I need another repository added, or some other solution? heboland

    When you install a package, you leave off the version number and the arch:

    zypper in h264

    and it will pick the current version. If you specify the version number you may be using an old version which is no longer relevant due to the refresh.

    OK, here's what's next:

    Your search is too literal . If you search for "264" you'll see libx264-VERIONNUMBERHERE(currently 119), that's what you need AFAIK

    Re. your question: nope, you don't need more repos. Packman serves all codecs etc.

    Sorry, I meant

    zypper in h264enc

    which does exist in Packman just not the version you specified, but a more up to date one.
