Thread: Gstreamer updates - is it not odd to get at least ONE update per day for this????

  1. #1

    Question Gstreamer updates - is it not odd to get at least ONE update per day for this????

    I am about to dump gstreamer and all of its bits down the crapper and just do without.

    I have received two updates in the last 18 hours for this thing, and at least one per day since I installed it some fifteen days ago. Is it THAT broken that it requires being bloody re-installed (in essence) every day of the world??

    Wrong Forum. As this is just a rant, it is being moved. Thread closed and moving.

    OK, but it was the best guess I could make. "Wrong" it may very well be but "Right" is more than "obscure." Frankly it's bloody opaque. Enlighten me, oh forum gurus. Prithee sirrah, where SHOULD it go?

    Also, "rant" it may be but the query is still valid. One to two updates a day? Is the thing THAT unstable??

    As long as 90% of your posts is no technical information about what you did/have with a clear technical question, but uttered frustration, you may be glad that it is only seen as Soapbox and not removed at all.

    I update twice a week. I don't have to update immediately.

    The chances are that "gstreamer" itself did not change, but it had to be recompiled because of a change to some library that it depends on.

    Tumbleweed or LEAP 15? Because here on LEAP 42.3 the last gstreamer update was ay least 3 weeks ago, probably more.

    Dangerous thing to ask in a snotty manner. Read my mind at what my answer might be.

    Maybe you missed that this is in Soapbox?

    No serious technical answers are expected here. Basically because there is no serious technical problem description

    I didn't, obviously, but I was curious if this is a TB thing or something. I've seen this happen with youtubedownloader some time ago in oS 13.2 IINM, an update every other day, to the point that I blocked it on yast. Or perhaps the OP system is silently failing to update (improbable)?

    It's just idle speculation, feel free to disregard it.
