mplayer


I have read through the posts and googled the question but I can't seem to find a specific help to my problem.

In trying to install mplayer I have come across this problem:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mozilla-mplayer: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.0-7) but 1:3.4.3-13 is to be installed
Depends: mplayer (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-custom (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-386 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-586 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-686 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-k6 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-k7 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-powerpc (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-g4 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-amd64 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-nogui (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

can someone help me work through this problem to meet these dependencies. Thank you.

Thank you ... the problem now is that if I try to install anyother packages i.e. gtk-gnutella I get this same message and it refuses to load the package that I am trying to install. I have tried this from the Package Manager and also from the Terminal. How can I get around this so I can continue to work.

I'm sorry I forgot that I needed to mention that I am using running Sarge.

ok just edit your /etc/apt/source.list file and put a # in front of the line deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main (instead of unstable it should be written sarge or stable for you). This will cancel this repository and it should work... if you *really* need sofware from this repository *now*.. try to add deb http://rarewares.org/debian/packages/unstable/ ./ (dunno if this one exist for stable, check apt-get .org) but I would advise you to just edit your /etc/apt/source.list as I said and wait nerim be up again... :-)
Good luck!

Thank you again.

I did as you suggested and I am still receiving the same error when I try to load the gtk-gnutella package. Let me post the entire process so you can see the whole problem.


<pt-get install --yes 'gtk-gnutella' ;echo RESULT=$?
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mozilla-mplayer: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.0-7) but 1:3.4.3-13 is to be installed
Depends: mplayer (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-custom (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-386 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-586 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-686 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-k6 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-k7 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-powerpc (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-g4 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-amd64 (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable or
mplayer-nogui (>= 1.0-pre5) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
RESULT=100

This is even after an update of the apt-get. The other odd thing that I finding is that Konquer is recognizing the mplayer plugin even though it is being shown here as not being installed and also KPackage is showing libgcc1 as being installed. Do you have any further suggestions?

I don't know gtk-gnutella, does it depends on mplayer??? becasue the error i see makes sense, it is just saying that it cannot download mplayer, which is normal cause you cancelled the repository... However, if you tried to install mplayer *(or packages depending on it) before it is maybe becasue there is something in the cache... try apt-get clean and let me know how it goes... mmm.. .confusing

EDIT: and what is this mozilla-mplayer thing? you have it installed?

Hi Mosher

Try reading through the following very clear site:

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/DVD-Playback-HOWTO/index.html

There are a couple of interesting methods of solving dependencies and conflicts there.

I did as you suggested and the message is the same.

mozilla-mplayer is just mplayer it is just a specific debian package version that I got through the officiasl debian website.

mmm weird, I checked this mozilla-mplayer.. it is only a plugins depending on mplayer... it does not work right? and as it is in the regular repositories what about trying to uninstall and just do apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to see if you have the error... just trying to find ideas there... hope I'm not confusing you... but your message is normal since you blocked the mplayer repository (and anyway it is down)... really try uninstalling this mozilla-mplayer, then apt-get clean, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade... and let me know... sorry not to be more helpful...
Good luck!
A.
PS: actually I think your problem will be fine when the mplayer repository will be up becasue you'll get the dependencies but looks like some stuff you have or try to install need them so get rid of it for now :-)

I didn't even thing of uninstalling it .... funny how simple things like that are sufficient.

In anycase it worked and I was able to download what I needed. Thank you. Now my next task is to actually download the mplayer plugin for mozilla so I can use it in Konquer ... unless anyone knows of any other way I can run M$ specific streaming audio in my Konquer browser.

Again thank you for your help.
