strange library problem


Hi Everyone,
Im running an FC3 system. It was running fine with everything working until recently. I tried to reinstall mplayer and xine so that all the video formats can be supported. When I reinstalled it , the output told me that a bunch of libraries and shared objects cant be open. Then on reboot cups and HAL failed to start. I have also noticed that xmms wont start because its missing its own object. (libxmms.so.1) I ran ldconfig and it listed three pages of missing objects like this. How do I fix this? What caused it? Thanks

Have seen reports of similar symptoms several times already. In all cases, unknown external repositories were involved. Can you state the repositories you use and provide the output of

rpm -qa --last | head -n 25

?

The interesting thing is that the problem seems to have occurred when I used synaptic to re-install the programs.

Actually that might be the answer to your repository question. The problem didn't occur for me until I tried to install an app through synaptic. When I compile from source everything is ok. Also the problem occured once and then dissapeared. Then it occured again as I am still trying to get the media players to work properly. Please let me know of any solutions you can think of. Thanks

With "repositories" I refer to the sites you download packages from. A "repository" is the term for a download site which carries RPM packages and meta data for package tools like Yum, up2date, Apt-RPM. In the output I see several packages from freshrpms.net, which makes your installation and configuration unsupported. In particular, because some of the packages even upgrade Fedora Core. Using Synaptic (and Apt-RPM) also makes you unsupported, unfortunately.

If the problems reappear, it would be important to file a bug report and also find out whether it is reproducible with Synaptic and just Fedora Core packages. For instance, the person behind freshrpms.net takes bug reports via the bug database at http://bugzilla.atrpms.net

Does this mean there are no known ways to correct this? At the very least some things I could attempt to do?

Last time I queried http://bugzilla.redhat.com no similar symptoms had been reported before by anybody. Since you have run into it, you should report it. I would if I could reproduce it. But I haven't run into it myself.
