I'm running Fedora 7 and everything seems to be going fine. I did run into trouble last time I let the Software Updater update fglrx: it screwed my graphics up completely to the point that I just uninstalled everything related to fglrx, ati and beryl (using Add/Remove software) and followed the instructions at another forum (click here
) from the beginning. Now I've got my Desktop on a cube and even my native resolution works (1440x900, which was hard to get to work with my ATI X1300).
Following all that fiddling, I am now running into the problem that Software Updater cannot resolve dependencies and therefore does not install anything. This means that the updates are slowly accumulating in that list of Available Updates...
Here's what comes from clicking "Details" in the error message:
Packages to be installed/updated:
Missing Dependency: libdts.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package xine-lib-extras-nonfree
Missing Dependency: libx264.so.54()(64bit) is needed by package ffmpeg-libs
Missing Dependency: libdts.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package vlc
Missing Dependency: libx264.so.54()(64bit) is needed by package vlc
Missing Dependency: libdts.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package ffmpeg-libs
The problem is, "vlc" and "ffmpeg-libs" are not in the list of available updates so I think libdts.so and libx264.so may be dependencies of dependencies or something...
The packages that were in the list the first time this happened are:
I know I wrote a lot but I hope it's enough info and that you'll appreciate how organised it is
. If there were at least a way to figure out which one is screwing it up and to remove it from my "Available Updates" list so that the problem doesn't prevent me from installing other updates, that would be a start.
