    Default packman update dependency problems

    Is anybody else seeing weird dependency problems in the latest round of packman updates?

    I am getting multiple dependency problems when trying to update a range of software.
    The message is "dependency cannot be met"

    e.g.

    Try to update Amarok to 2.5.09-1 and get the message

    amarok 2.5.09-1.x86_64 requires libavformat.so.54()(64bit), but this requirement cannot be provided
    getting similar messages about dependencies cannot be provided for a large range of software that I have had installed for a long time such as

    ffmpeg
    mplayer
    mplayer2
    smplayer
    etc . . .

    Guess something has gone wrong with their latest updates.
    Hope they fix it up soon.

    Just to confirm that I see similar problems. I have updated my wife's
    laptop yesterday to 12.1 with Gnome 3 and several multimedia
    dependencies for totem cannot be fulfilled (some ask for libavcodec 5.3
    which does no longer exist and some other gstreamer plugin versions
    which are no longer there).
    So I decided to be just patient and wait a few days until the whole
    thing is again in a consistent state.

    So caf4926 also noticed the issue and got the following reply from Packman ...

    Please wait until your mirror is up to date, I've updated ffmpeg to 0.11
    and there are a lot of packages that don't build against this. I'm still
    on fixing it (about 15 packages to do). The fix for k3b has been checked
    in 14 hours ago and two hours ago the results have been put to our ftp
    server.
    It seems its due to a ffmpeg update and its being done to the active and live repository. We would suggest you wait for the updates to complete. We did not get a time frame for that action.

    Are you using gwdg? It was broken last week, the list of packages was out
    of sync with the content.

    Smile FFmpeg 0.11 adds Blu-ray and ProRes support



    The FFmpeg developers have announced the first major update to the open source audio and video codecs package since January. FFmpeg 0.11, code-named "Happiness", includes several new encoders and decoders for additional video formats including Blu-ray and Apple's ProRes. A significant number of bugs have also been fixed.


    Following the footsteps of the MythTV project, which added Blu-ray capabilities in version 0.24, the FFmpeg developers have also added support for the protocol in their tool collection. This should bring the capability to play back Blu-ray content to the many Linux applications that use FFmpeg to encode and decode video and audio files.


    FFmpeg 0.11 also includes an encoder for Apple's ProRes format, which supports resolutions up to 4K. Other additions to the software include decoders for WMA Lossless and RealAudio Lossless files. Transcoding support for the v408 pixel format in QuickTime and Microsoft's AYUV Uncompressed has also been added. Furthermore, the developers have made the libavfilter API mandatory for running FFmpeg, and the program now supports full audio filtering via libavfilter.


    More information and a complete list of changes, including the addition of several other media formats, can be found on the FFmpeg site and in the change log for this release. FFmpeg is licensed under the LGPL or GPL depending upon the configuration used and its source code can be downloaded from the project's site. The developers recommend that all users update their version of FFmpeg to this release as soon as possible.
