View Full Version : help with dependency

14th February 2007, 03:39 AM
trying to install media player on my fc6
I run this
yum -y install xmms xmms-mp3 xmms-faad2 gstreamer-plugins-ugly libmad libid3tag

after it start checking for dependencies
I get this error:

"Error: Missing Dependency: faad2 = 2.0-19.20050131.lvn6 is needed by package xmms-faad2"

and when I download this faad2 = 2.0-19.20050131.lvn6 and try to install it, It says that a newer version is installed!!!!!!!

why am I doing this? because everytime I play mp3 with amarok I get something like chach,chach,chach,chach,chach,chach sound and it goes for ever... If the sound is getting distortion or something...

It's because you probably installed it from freshrpms repository, remove it and install it directly from livna:

yum install faad2 --enablerepo livna --disablerepo freshrpms
Remember that next time you run a yum update you will risk to go back to the same situation unless you disable 3rd party repositories.

I configured yum with all 3rd parties repositories disabled and enable them just when I need to install something. When I need to update, I first run a yum update just on fedora official repositories (core, updates and extras) then I update the single packages from the third party repositories, one by one.


# Updates from official repositories:
yum -y update

# Updates from livna:
yum -y update faad2 libdvdnav x264 lame-libs amule a52dec mjpegtools ffmpeg lame mplayer-fonts faac libmad xvidcore gsm libdvdcss mplayer mpeg2dec libquicktime mjpegtools-libs mencoder libmp4v2 xine --enablerepo livna

# Updates from rpmforge repos:
yum -y update tcptraceroute scapy enblend fragrouter gnofract4d dwscan nmbscan wipe strobe lmbench weplab ncrypt httping wifiscanner nbtscan flash-plugin asleap dnstracer netwox sodipodi ap-utils snmpbrowser dhcping bing airtraf etherape fakeap xmess python-wifi dnstop wol john ettercap traceproto nasty furl sendip yersinia arp-scan peacock cowpatty --enablerepo dries --enablerepo freshrpms

To build the list I check which packages I have installed from those repositories with: rpm -qa|grep ".lvn" and rpm -qa|grep ".rf".

I hope this helps.
