packman update dependency problems

Is anybody else seeing weird dependency problems in the latest round of packman updates?

I am getting multiple dependency problems when trying to update a range of software.
The message is “dependency cannot be met”

e.g.

Try to update Amarok to 2.5.09-1 and get the message

amarok 2.5.09-1.x86_64 requires libavformat.so.54()(64bit), but this requirement cannot be provided

getting similar messages about dependencies cannot be provided for a large range of software that I have had installed for a long time such as

ffmpeg
mplayer
mplayer2
smplayer
etc . . .

Guess something has gone wrong with their latest updates.
Hope they fix it up soon.

Just to confirm that I see similar problems. I have updated my wife’s
laptop yesterday to 12.1 with Gnome 3 and several multimedia
dependencies for totem cannot be fulfilled (some ask for libavcodec 5.3
which does no longer exist and some other gstreamer plugin versions
which are no longer there).
So I decided to be just patient and wait a few days until the whole
thing is again in a consistent state.


PC: oS 12.1 x86_64 | i7-2600@3.40GHz | 16GB | KDE 4.8.3 | GeForce GT 420
ThinkPad E320: oS 12.1 x86_64 | i3@2.30GHz | 8GB | KDE 4.8.3 | HD 3000
eCAFE 800: oS 12.1 i586 | AMD Geode LX 800@500MHz | 512MB | KDE 3.5.10

So caf4926 also noticed the issue and got the following reply from Packman …

Please wait until your mirror is up to date, I’ve updated ffmpeg to 0.11
and there are a lot of packages that don’t build against this. I’m still
on fixing it (about 15 packages to do). The fix for k3b has been checked
in 14 hours ago and two hours ago the results have been put to our ftp
server.

It seems its due to a ffmpeg update and its being done to the active and live repository. We would suggest you wait for the updates to complete. We did not get a time frame for that action.

Thank You,

I can confirm it’s a mess
It’s being worked on and should be OK by tomorrow, so they say.

Are you using gwdg? It was broken last week, the list of packages was out
of sync with the content.

Tomorrow? Who said that?

AFAIK it’s fixed for Tumbleweed now

The FFmpeg developers have announced the first major update to the open source audio and video codecs package since January. FFmpeg 0.11, code-named “Happiness”, includes several new encoders and decoders for additional video formats including Blu-ray and Apple’s ProRes. A significant number of bugs have also been fixed.

Following the footsteps of the MythTV project, which added Blu-ray capabilities in version 0.24, the FFmpeg developers have also added support for the protocol in their tool collection. This should bring the capability to play back Blu-ray content to the many Linux applications that use FFmpeg to encode and decode video and audio files.

FFmpeg 0.11 also includes an encoder for Apple’s ProRes format, which supports resolutions up to 4K. Other additions to the software include decoders for WMA Lossless and RealAudio Lossless files. Transcoding support for the v408 pixel format in QuickTime and Microsoft’s AYUV Uncompressed has also been added. Furthermore, the developers have made the libavfilter API mandatory for running FFmpeg, and the program now supports full audio filtering via libavfilter.

More information and a complete list of changes, including the addition of several other media formats, can be found on the FFmpeg site and in the change log for this release. FFmpeg is licensed under the LGPL or GPL depending upon the configuration used and its source code can be downloaded from the project’s site. The developers recommend that all users update their version of FFmpeg to this release as soon as possible.

Thank You,

From that we know there were still about 15 packages to fix. And that one package, k3b, should be in the mirrors by now (it is in mine).
Those ~15 packages include thinks like gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg… that happens to be important and unmaintained upstream. So don’t hold your breath…

Thanks Red
Maybe we should post a notice about this.

Actually using the ffmpeg 0.7.x until things can be fixed for ffmpeg 0.11.x things have been improving quite fast. If you can live without lightspark, opencv, k9copy, kmediafactory and some other random apps…

We truly appreciate all you guys do and understand what wait means.
It’s just that we find ourselves needing answers for all our user base here in the forum.

I notice MPlayer is broken in 12.1 too. Well at least SMPlayer is crashing out on my .mp4’s

  • MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
    Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a ‘gdb’ backtrace and
    disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
  • MPlayer crashed. This shouldn’t happen.
    It can be a bug in the MPlayer code or in your drivers or in your
    gcc version. If you think it’s MPlayer’s fault, please read
    DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can’t and
    won’t help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

It should be easy to get a general idea of the status at any moment.

Report it in https://bugs.links2linux.org/ (test also with just MPlayer, without SMPlayer, and report results). Pascal is who is taking care of it and otherwise it’s going to be forgotten.

all sorted out now for the packman factory repo

12.1 also seems back in shape. (other than mplayer as mentioned above - but separate issue I guess :slight_smile: )

FYI, clicking on that link gets me a “This connection is untrusted” page in Firefox; clicking it in Opera produces a message that says “The signer’s certificate chain is incomplete, and the signer(s) are not registered.”

I tested also today that it seems to be consistent now, all gstreamer
plugins for my wife’s laptop for totem work now in 12.1.

Install ca-certificates-cacert and import the certificates.

IMHO this “a HTTPS signed by an unknown authority is the biggest danger humanity has ever seen, but HTTP is just fine” doesn’t make any sense.

MPlayer works just fine with my three mp4 files and any other kind of file I have.
