Thread: "home:user" applications on software.opensuse.org

  1. #1

    Default "home:user" applications on software.opensuse.org

    I've been trying to install FlightGear on openSUSE 13.2 but it says "nothing provides libavcodec.so" even after I installed everything related to libavcoded from packman. I noticed there's a newer version of the sim, but it's on "home:lemy04"'s repo, and I'm wondering if it's safe to install via that because it seems any user can build something and upload to that website, and since I'm paranoid I'd like to hear from you guys.

    Regards,
    Junior

    Hi
    Files ending in <somelib>.so are always in the devel package. You need
    either libffmpeg-devel or libffmpeg_oldabi-devel depending on your
    system setup..... This is from the packman repository

    It is provided by libavcodec56-2.6.1-1.1.x86_64, in my 13.1 system. On
    your's the numbers may be different. There is no
    "/usr/lib64/libavcodec.so" file, but versioned files like
    "/usr/lib64/libavcodec.so.52". Thus if Flightgear wants "libavcodec.so",
    there is none.

    I have FG installed on another machine, but for 13.1.

    In general, you should avoid home repos unless you have a reference for
    the one you want that tells you that it is safe to use. A home repo is
    the personal playground of its owner, and it is up to him what he does.
    Maybe he does not intend tha packages for general use, but for himself.
    Or they are made for testing things.

    if you want the "latest" you could just build the development code

    http://www.flightgear.org/download/source-code/
    or
    http://software.opensuse.org/downloa...age=FlightGear


    there is a ton of related information on "The Virtual Terrain Project"
