I recently reinstalled my OS and went to reinstall XBMC. I had previously had 9.11, the stable version from the packman repo. Now, the version in Packman is 10.0. I get the following error message when installing:
nothing provides the libva-glx.so.1 needed by xbmc 10.0.1.pm.13.8.i586
If I choose to ignore this issue and install anyway, I’m told upon trying to open XBMC that I need something that supports OpenGL graphics. I’m running an nVidia gt240 card with driver 256.53 (both of which definitely support OpenGL). I’ve installed VLC (no problems) and tested 1080p video files with it and they work like a charm (something that would absolutely not happen if my mobo was running the video output, so I know the driver’s working right).
I can’t find the libva-glx file to download anywhere. Can anyone help? I’d like to just install 10.0.1 without having to compile it manually. Alternatively, can anyone provide me a .rpm file for 9.11 so I can just install that?
So I am seeing the same problem with openSUSE 11.3 and Packman. If you try to update xbmc to the latest version then you get the libva-glx.so.1 dependency can not be met even as libva1 is installed. I think it is just another glitch in the Packman repository that will need to be fixed. Just stick with the old XMBC version for now is my suggestion.
I was having the same problem when trying to install the latest version, 10.0-1.pm.13.8, from the Yast Software manager, but if you choose the previous version, 10.0-1.pm.11.4, all the dependencies are resolved correctly.
Everything seems to have worked for me. I was given the option in the software manager to “install libva… using a different vendor,” which I’m assuming is this new repo. Anyway, it would appear I am up and running!
