    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    It was libvpx that was the culprit, which was a dependency for gstreamer-plugins-bad-free, which was available as a dependency of ffmpeg-libs which was available in rpmfusion-free-updates-testing (did I get that right?)

    I've been running F15 with updates testing since install without problems and wanted to enable the updates testing repos on my F16 installs from the beginning, but, was not motivated. Last nights problem with libvpx got me motivated, since I wanted the FF 10.0 update. If anyone is interested, my F16 KDE install with updates-testing enabled is running without problems. Hopefully it will continue this way, with the occasional use of --skip-broken during yum upgrade, as was the case with F15.

    yum update
    It works, thank you!

    The dependency was also preventing my nVidia driver from updating (kmod-nvidia-3.2.2-1.fc16.x86_64.x86_64). I'm using FC16 with XFCE.

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    The offending packages are gstreamer-plugins-bad-free and libvpx. Do this workaround:

    1- Remove the offending packages but ignore dependency using rpm
    $ sudo rpm -e --nodeps gstreamer-plugins-bad-free libvpx
    2- Then do the update. The packages will get reinstalled again with firefox
    $ sudo yum update -y

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    Thanks DBelton for the fix. My only remaining question is whether in the coming days we will have any housekeeping to do, such as downgrading after the regular package is fixed, or can we leave it alone for good? Thanks again, I'm now typing this in FF10!

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    that is the "regular" package if no problems are encountered with it.

    rpmfusion-*-updates-testing is like the fedora updates-testing. Updated packages are put in there, then get pushed into the regular updates repo if there aren't problems. Nothing to do on your part.

    If problems are encountered, then an updated package will go into updates-testing, and when it gets pushed to updates, your system will automatically pull it in with a regular update. (If you keep updates-testing enabled, you would get it as soon as it is pt in there)

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    Keep getting error...
    Code:
    Error: Package: chromium-15.0.874.106-1.fc16.x86_64 (@fedora-chromium-stable)
               Requires: libvpx.so.0()(64bit)
               Removing: libvpx-0.9.7.1-1.fc16.x86_64 (@koji-override-0/$releasever)
                   libvpx.so.0()(64bit)
               Updated By: libvpx-1.0.0-1.fc16.x86_64 (updates)
                   Not found
     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
    I tried all of the above but with no luck. Any ideas?

    @Mitsakos-

    Post #10 in this thread will resolve the problem for you. You can have both libvpx-1.0.0-1.fc16 and libvpx-0.9.7.1-1.fc16 packages installed at the same time as none of the files in either conflict with the other. I did this yesterday and it works.

    Download the libvpx-1.0.0-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm package then use the rpm command, not yum, to install it.

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    Wow, I also did a manual install of the libvpx, and now I can't watch any movies with either vlc or mplayer!

    And now it seems they have pushed out the borked libvpx package into regular updates repo.

    ****storm incoming!

    ** edit **

    I did a forced upgrade of the 1.0 package didn't try to install it, maybe they fixed the package so it will be pulled in and installed beside the old?

    Re: Broken Package(s) Prevents Update

    Vlc plays movies (from DVD or any video file) for me without complaint with the upgraded libvpx-1.0.0 package.
