Dependency problem for x264 on openSUSE 13.1 (32-bit KDE) & Packman

I just finished upgrading an old (dual Xeon) Dell to Win7 and also installed the 32-bit version of openSUSE 13.1 KDE (it’s now a dual-boot machine).

I added the libdvdcss and packman repositories per, but ran into a problem installing the x264 package when I did the copy/paste instructions for KDE.

Problem: nothing provides needed by x264-0.142svn20140321-1.1.i586
 Solution 1: do not install x264-0.142svn20140321-1.1.i586
 Solution 2: break x264-0.142svn20140321-1.1.i586 by ignoring some of its dependencies

So I did a search for “libffms” and found libffms2-3 is available from the packman repository (but is not installed).

Unfortunately it provides and x264 is quite specific in it’s requirement of

I’d appreciate an clue as to how best to proceed.



Be patient. :wink:
ffms2 got upgraded today, it takes a while until all other packages (including x264) are rebuilt against the new version.

The specific problem in this case is that x264 fails to build at the moment because of a wrong changelog file.

I will report this to Packman shortly.

I can do that.:X

As long as I know that it’s a known issue that’s being worked on, I can be quite patient.


FYI, this should be fixed in the meantime.

I installed an updated x264 today and was able to uninstall afterwards without any dependency issues.
