[SOLVED] VLC and RHEL 5 - still a problem?
 
Hi there,

on my PC with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.3 (Tikanga), VLC doesn't install at all:

yum install vlc

Hi,

check if the reported libraries really exists in /usr/lib. I think it's a version conflict.

Thanks mesiol,

the VLC package looks for libdvdread.so.3 and libcucul.so.0 deps, and as shown below there are new version installed.

ls /usr/lib | grep libdvd
libdvdread.so
libdvdread.so.4
libdvdread.so.4.1.3

ls /usr/lib | grep libcu
libcupsimage.so.2
libcups.so.2
libcurl.so.3
libcurl.so.3.0.0


Of course, making a symbolic link by hand doesn't work.

Which repo are you using to install vlc? I'm using dag(rpmforge) and vlc installs with no problems. Are you enabling other repos by any chance? Are you using both rpmforge and epel? I don't think epel plays nice with rpmforge.

Hi storm,

thanks for your replay. Honestly I am not so expert, anyway I will try to figuring out what is the configuration:

by using the following command to install the rpmforce-release it says:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm

Retrieving http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386 is already installed


ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
adobe-linux-i386.repo epel.repo epel-testing.repo graphviz-rhel.repo mirrors-rpmforge rpmforge.repo atrmps.repo epel.repo.rpmnew GoOo.repo livna.repo rhel-debuginfo.repo

Could this help?
thx

max,

Based on your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory, you are mixing too many repos. There are certain repos that are not compatible and thus could cause some problems. For example, you are trying to install vlc which has a set of dependencies. When yum begins to fetch for those dependencies, instead of looking in just rpmforge, it looks on some of the other repos. Here's a few things that you can try. First, try running this as root on the command line:
Code:

yum --disablerepo epel atrpms livna install vlc
If after running this command, you don't get any errors, then your problem is mixing repos. You can solve that by either disabling the repos, or just removing them completely. To disable a repo, you can follow this example:
Code:

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/epel
Where it says "enable=1", change that to enable=0.

Or, you can remove those rpms by doing this as root on the command line:
Code:

rpm -ev epel atrpms livna
Try that and post back with your results. This should work though.

Hi Storm*,

Sorry to say that I got the following usage instructions by using the --disablerepos as shown:

Storm is right, you are mixing too many third party repos. The problem comes into play becuase not every bodies library X is the same. Atrpms version may have a certain feature that rpmforge's does not (or the other way around). If you have Atrpms version of the library installed and you try to install a rpmforge rpm that has that library as a dependency, you will have a conflict(your current situation). The short version is that you can only safely run one(1) third party repo on any one system.

stormtracknole 03-17-2009 01:43 AM

Max,

I think I this point, I would consider starting over and re-install RHEL. You've probably mixed too many rpms from different repos. If you don't know which one to take out, then I would consider starting over again. This ensures that you have a clean system. If you decide to go this route, make sure to only activate one repo whether that is rpmforge or atrpms. I personally use rpmforge with no problems.

No, I'm sorry but I can not reinstall the whole system, since there is no problem other than VLC installation.

It could be another way to try to recover the repos status...

lazlow 03-18-2009 03:07 AM

First you need to decide which third party repo you need the most(preferably only one repo). After that you will need to go through and remove the rpms that are not from your chosen third party repo or the base repo. It is a long drawn out process that gets ugly pretty quick(which is why a reinstall is almost always faster, safer, and easier).

Heh...sorry for that advice. Sometimes, I get lazy and just rebuild the whole thing whenever I mess up my system. I don't think my method may work for others though! lol Sorry about that.

Ok, so it seems that dvdread is giving you problems (I missed that from your post earlier). Try doing this as root: "rpm -ql dvdread" to see if dvdread is installed. What I think may be happening is that you installed another program that requires dvdread. More thank likely, dvdread was downloaded from atrpms and thus made it incompatible with rpmforge's dvdread. If dvdread is installed, then do "yum remove dvdread". This will take care of the dependencies. Make sure to uninstall or disable every repo except rpmforge. Then, try installing vlc again.

No problem, storm! I thank you so much for your effort on fixing this annoying problem.

Ok, so it seems that dvdread is giving you problems (I missed that from your post earlier). Try doing this as root: "rpm -ql dvdread" to see if dvdread is installed. What I think may be happening is that you installed another program that requires dvdread. More thank likely, dvdread was downloaded from atrpms and thus made it incompatible with rpmforge's dvdread. If dvdread is installed, then do "yum remove dvdread". This will take care of the dependencies. Make sure to uninstall or disable every repo except rpmforge. Then, try installing vlc again.
Here my unlucky results:
rpm -ql dvdread
package dvdread is not installed

yum list | grep dvdread
libdvdread.i386 4.1.3-1.el5 installed
libdvdread-devel.i386 4.1.3-1.el5 installed


This sounds crazy for me.

Sorry, I meant to write libdvdread instead of dvdread. In any case, go ahead and remove libdvdread with "yum remove libdvdread". Make sure that rpmforge is the only repo active. Then, go ahead and install vlc with "yum install vlc". Two ways to deactivate repos are by either removing the repo rpms, or by making the following changes on your /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo (change local to epel, atrpms, etc):
Code:

enable=1
to
Code:

enable=0
Let me know how that goes.

Hi stormtracknole!

I have to thank you so much for your patience and accurate indications on how to fix this problem!

Finally, after having libdvdread removed and leaving only the rpmforge repos active, the installation of vlc got successfully!

Great person. Thank you again.
Also I updated the title as SOLVED

Another happy vlc user !
