I just installed opensuse-11.0 64-bit version. Almost everything works but when I try to install libxine1 I get a message saying it can not find a distribution for libavcodec51. Going in the software management tool I see that libavcodec52 is available. Anyone has an idea how to deal with this.
You need the Packman version of libxine 1
You may have to upgrade all your multimedia packages to packman, that is best anyway.
This is the version I’m using. If I click on the technical data tab in yast it says
Yesterday was update de FFMpeg packages and libavcodec51 doesn’t exist.
libxine1 need libavcodec51.
I don’t know where I can write this problem for Packman.
PD: My first post
Do you have VLC repo enabled?
If yes - Disable
Some packages in Packman might now show RED, roll them back.
FYI: libavcodec52 is provided by Packman’s libxine 1
I recently got this same error on somw multimedia packages. I believe it is because not everything has been updated in packman’s repository to link against the new libavcodec.
Probably here (I don’t speak german) -> [packman] libavcodec.so.51](http://22.214.171.124/pipermail/packman/2008-September/006060.html)
$ rpm -qRp “ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/11.0/x86_64/libxine1-1.1.15-44.pm.0.x86_64.rpm” | grep avcodec
$ rpm -qRp “ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/11.0/x86_64/libxine1-1.1.15-0.pm.1.x86_64.rpm” | grep avcodec
I suppose there exist some incompatibilty between xine and latest libavcodec and they have created a new xine package linked statically against libavcodec51.
Just wait for your mirrors to sync…
The problem is fixed. Today exist this package
Thanks to the maintainer.
OK. I was able to install it, but not until I removed xine-lib. So far it doesn’t look like removing xine-lib broke anything else.
Thanks for the tip alainleblanc. I removed xine-lib and am now able to install libxine1 etc.
Thanks too alainleblanc!!
All is working perfectly now!
