    vlc how to get it in F13?

    Hello,

    i've setup a fresh F13 x86 installation today, and everything seems to run very nice. But i don't get vlc (video lan client) installed. I get the following error:

    Code:
    --> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Package: vlc-1.0.5-1.fc13.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)
               Requires: libcxcore.so.4()(64bit)
    Error: Package: vlc-1.0.5-1.fc13.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-rawhide)

     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
     You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Try using VLC's official instructions for Fedora on their website, their repo may have the packages you're missing. This is assuming you're trying to install VLC using Fedora's stock set of repositories.

    Hello,

    thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately the vlc-repo refers to the rpmfusion-repo which is the one I already use (with no success)

    Think you just have to wait. That's what an alpha is about assembling the packages and getting them working. It's weird but it just happens at a strange set rate. It's like there's always about 120 packages being tested at any one time. The more people give a package a go the faster it gets pushed to stable.

    Re: vlc how to get it in F13?

    It's funny, but I've had a depsolving problem due to VLC that I installed back in pre-alpha (i686). It's due to opencv.i686 0:2.0.0-7.fc13 wanting to update from opencv.i686 0:2.0.0-5.fc13 that's already installed. So I have to keep using --skip-broken to get around it (because I'm not going to remove vlc, and otherwise things are working ok...)

    I believe if you can downgrade the opencv package you have installed (and I don't know how to do that...) then vlc will probably install for you. Of course then you'll likely have to use --skip-broken when you do your yum updates, so everything but the opencv will install. I think (hope) eventually that dep issue will be resolved....

    Re: vlc how to get it in F13?

    This nasty hack worked for me, at least, vlc loads and I can play an ogv file in it which was what I wanted it for anyway... but no guarantees it'll work for anyone else:

    Code:
    # Install dependencies first
    su -c "yum install libmpeg2 libtar minizip libcddb libdvbpsi libebml \
    libmad libmatroska libupnp xorg-x11-fonts-misc xosd zvbi"
    
    # Create a temp folder
    mkdir ~/rpmtemp
    cd ~/rpmtemp
    
    # Download RPMs using wget, should work for i686, untested on x86_64
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/i386/os/vlc-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/i386/os/vlc-core-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/i386/os/vlc-devel-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/i386/os/vlc-nox-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/development/i386/os/vlc-plugin-jack-1.0.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm
    
    # Manually install the RPMs without checking dependencies
    su -c "rpm -ivh --nodeps vlc*.rpm"
    
    # Remove the rpmtemp folder afterwards
    cd ~
    rm -fR ~/rpmtemp
    Hope this helps

    I don't know what's wrong with RPM Fusion right now but if you rebuild the source RPM, it will just work:
    get the source:
    wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...1.fc13.src.rpm
    install the build requirements (as root):
    yum-builddep vlc-1.0.5-1.fc13.src.rpm
    build:
    rpmbuild --rebuild vlc-1.0.5-1.fc13.src.rpm
    install the rpm with
    yum --nogpgcheck install vlc...


    You can find x86_64 RPMs built by me here:
