MPlayer install problem (Suse 10)- library conflict


I'm running Suse 10 but I'm having issues installing MPlayer pre7try3-5.

It seems to be a library conflict of some sort. can someone tell me where I can get the 3 library's it says I'm missing.

MPlayer 1.0pre7try3-5 conflict
Unresolved Requirements:
MPlayer requires libartsc.so.0()(64bit)
MPlayer requires libdirectfb-0.9.so.22()(64bit)
MPlayer requires libdv.so.4()(64bit)

I tried adding a link to packman in YaST2 Software source media and I still get the same conflict error.

Any help would be much appreciated.

First of all, it's always a good idea to consult google;
just ask it about the name ("libartsc").
Secondly, I'd guess that your system is already equipped
with the libs in question (provided you have KDE installed,
as arts is part of it). If that is the case, your error
message either means that
1. the libs in question aren't in your PATH variable (un-
likely)
or
2. you have them, but in another version.

As to 2.: if so, they're very likely in /usr/lib (/usr/local/lib). Just go to the directory, and see if you
can find anything with a name connected. You may find, for
example, a libartsc.so.1. If you find that, you may try to
simply link your version of the library to the required
name (in the given example, open a console as root, then
enter
ln -snf /usr/lib/libartsc.so.1 /usr/lib/libartsc.so.0)

Thx HTH - I still can't find it. As you suggested I looked in:

/usr/lib> ls libartsc.so*
/bin/ls: libartsc.so*: No such file or directory
/usr/lib> ls libart*
libart_lgpl_2.so.2 libart_lgpl_2.so.2.3.17

And there are no files at all in /usr/local/lib

As root from root I did a find |grep libartsc and didn't find it either.

Any other thoughts? I've looked the other similar posts on this site and others and I just haven't been able to figure it out yet. Seems like it should be a simple solution.

Thx.

I have the same problem and installed the libraries needed from downloads. Still cant open it though. I installed it as an RPM. Only one item was missing, and that was a lamemp3 SO file I installed. Still cant find it from the terminal or the applications menu though.

I finally got the video to work for mpg and wmv files using xine. I figure I'd post the solution that worked for me . I tried following similar instructions on other posts but none worked. I appears the key was to completly remove xine and all xine related packages before installing clean versions. It's appears like the suse 10.0 version of xine is intentially broken to not play mpg, wmv, and mp3 files. By getting the xine packages from the packman site they worked fine.

The details of the solution. I finally got the video to work for mpg and wmv files using xine. I figure I'd post the solution that worked for me . I tried following similar instructions on other posts but none worked. I appears the key was to completly remove xine and all xine related packages before installing clean versions. It's appears like the suse 10.0 version of xine is intentially broken to not play mpg, wmv, and mp3 files.

This part is probably obvious to an experienced user, but as a newbee I needed to learn suse software update procedures.
Go to Menu->System->Control Center (YaST)
Choose the "Installation Source" option.
By default there should be a single entry in the "Software Source Media" for SUSE Linux Version 10.0. Click the Diable Enable/Diable button at the bottom right to shut it off. Then hit the Refresh on or Off until it is off as well. This will tell your system not to go to suse to install the official suse packages.

The following tells the Yast updater where to go to get software updates. Then add (using http) in the server name field enter http://packman.rsync.zmi.at/suse/10.0/
Also hit the enable button to turn status on and also hit the refresh button to set it to on as well.

Now repeat this process and add the following servers to your installation sources using the FTP option instead of HTTP:

mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source-java
mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source
mirrors.kernel.org/suse/i386/10.0/SUSE-Linux10.0-GM-Extra

What this does is replace the suse CD or DVD with the packman site as the place to go for installation software. As a newbee it took a while to figure out I had to actually specify where to go to get the software if I'm using YaST.

I learned a lot of how to fix it by reading the Jem Report (Hacking OpenSuse)
www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/178/42/

After seting the Software Source media hit the finish button at the bottom right.

Now the YaST control pannel should still be open.
Go click on the Software management option.

In the Search box type in xine and search.
This will tell you all the packages that are installed in your system that contain the word xine. I uninstalled every single one. Even the ones that had a lock on them saying there are other programs dependent on them. I did this by marking evey currently installed ones to delete (trash can icon). Then I hit accept and zap - they were all removed. I will assume at this point the intentially crippled suse version were removed as well.

I went back to re-install then. search for xine again and this time check autocheck to validate dependencies when you check you package selection. I did this and re-checked all the packages I thought I needed. I then Hit "Accept" and it re-installed xine.

Afterward xine video worked fine for all the types I was looking for. I still don't have sound working yet - but I'm working on that next. I can tell it's playing CD's etc because it reads the tracks and the progress bar is moving.

Hope this helps. It took a while to learn how Suse Linux installations work but i think I have the hand of it.

Good luck.
FJD.

You also will often encounter this problem when, for instance, the app wants to find the library in /usr/local/lib but you have it installed in /usr/lib. The easiest way to deal with this is to symlink from /usr/lib to /usr/local/lib and vice-versa.

I was able to solve the failed dependency "libartsc.so.0 is needed by MPlayer-1.0pre7-pm.3.i686" by installing the are arts moudular software synthesizer package from Yast. You can find it by searching for arts in Yast.

The only thing not working correctly is the Dolby Digital SPDIF output to my decoder-equipped speakers. I have a Dell Creative Labs Live! Value Digital sound card with Altec Lansing ADA8800 speakers with a built-in Dolby Digital decoder. I have not been able to get the raw digital output using "ac=hwac3," in the /home/username/.mplayer/config file.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

The Jem Report - Hacking SUSE Linux 10.1 is really awesome! I spent hours trying to get MPlayer working on my new SuSE 10.1 installation with no success. I came across a link to the Jem Report and within 1/5 of the time previously spent, I got MPlayer up and running! All I did was follow the instructions step-by-step!

i just had a very similar problem with not being able to install mplayer on SuSE Linux Enterprise v.10.0.

I had added the repo's suggested by Jem from his page detailing adding OpenSuse10.1 repo's to SLED.10.0 =)

Was still receiving a conflict error about libdirectfb-0.9.so.22

Simply disabling the reposiory that come with SLED 10.0 - mirrors.kernel.org/suse/i386/10.0/SUSE-Linux10.0-GM-Extra ,

and
adding repositories

packman.unixheads.com/suse/10.1
mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1/non-oss-inst-source
mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source

Now all seems to be fixed...
i dunno
;P

so have essentially managed to add the openSUSE 10.1 packages to my Suse10 Enterprise installation.
i think your right that the xine implementation that comes with sled 10 has problems.. whether intentionally or not -
