Thread: Cannot install VLC for opensuse

  1. #1

    Default Cannot install VLC for opensuse

    Whenever I try to install it I get this message.



    nothing provides libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.21)(64bit) needed by vlc-2.2.1-172.5.x86_64

    [ ] do not install vlc-2.2.1-172.5.x86_64

    [ ] break vlc-2.2.1-172.5.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

    Any ideas?

    how are you installing it?
    do you have a 64bit OS cos that error it suggest you don't have 64bit run time.
    to install vlc in 2 (maybe 3) steps
    add packman as a repo
    Code:
    su -
    zypper ar -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_13.2/ packman
    zypper ref
    zypper lr -d
    zypper dup --from packman
    zypper in vlc vlc-codecs
    that should be it.
    note opensuse does not come with patented software you need to get it from packman, so when doing a zypper dup --from packman you will replace a lot of packages, then zypper in vlc vlc-codecs will install vlc and it's codecs. plus the above commands do not depend on the OS architecture it will download and install 32bit vlc for 32bit opensuse and 64bit for a 64bit OS.

    That's what it gave me when I put the code you posted in. Also I'm having an issue installing Google Chrome but I can't make another topic. Why is this?

    Default AW: Cannot install VLC for opensuse

    Code:
    1 | SuSE | SuSE | Yes | ( p) Yes | Yes | 99 | rpm-md | http://download.videolan.org/SuSE/Tumbleweed/ |
    Delete this Repo, it is :
    1. for Tumbleweed, not for openSUSE 13.2
    2. when you activate Packman you should delete Videolas because it will break the Multimedia on your Maschine.

    Add Packman as described by I_A without the zypper lr -d Command.

    Okay I installed vlc media player but whenever I try to open it I see the icon for a bit then it just fades and doesn't open the program. I'm confused. When you told me to do whats on your post I had already done what I_A had said. Is that the issue? If so how do I undo that? Better yet how do I delete what it is that you want me to?/

    You probably installed some incompatible libraries from the Tumbleweed VLC repo.

    Do a full switch to Packman as described in the following link and VLC should work.
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Vendor_c..._Vendor_change

    If that doesn't help, please post your repo list again, and run "vlc" in a terminal window (e.g. Konsole, gnome-terminal, or xterm) and post the messages you get.

    IIUYC you haven't removed that Tumbleweed VLC repo yet, right?
    You can do so in YaST->Software Repositories, or run:
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr SuSE

    I don't see packman in your repo list.
    add packman with this command
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_13.2/ packman
    the vlc that comes from the vlc repo is broken, has been for a long time, use vlc from packman, you should uninstall vlc from vlc repo.
    ps if you have an nvidia or an ati graphic card don't forget to install the appropriate drivers.
    go to yast repository management, click add, select community repository, then select nvidia or amd/ati repository, click OK then finish.

    Then start yast/software management, the nvidia (or ati) drivers should be automatically selected for download, to do a full vendor change in yast/software management select view->repository then select packman, on the right you will see a blue link saying switch system packages to this repository click it, then click OK.

    The way they are telling me to switch repositories in that link you gave isn't working. Whether by going to Yast2 ( I don't even see the exact things they are asking me to do, interfaces are vastly different) or doing it by command prompt. When I tried I got this.

    I recently (a couple of days ago) used VLC from the 13.2 and Tumbleweed
    repos and they worked fine. I'd had trouble with the ones from the
    openSUSE repos and the replacements from the VLC repos fixed the
    problem.

    Having said that, the problem wasn't with the openSUSE version of VLC
    but the switch revealed that I needed an extra library module for
    the NTSC DVD that I was having trouble with. That was automatically
    selected for installation as soon as I switched to the VLC repo.
