openSuse 11 64 bit: gstreamer--ffmpeg issues


Has anyone figured out how to install gstreamer-ffmpeg on 64 bit openSuse 11? I seem to be having the same issues that I had when I tried to install 10.3: I can't get gstreamer-ffmpeg to install. It makes yast crash and that is the end of the story. Smart was not exactly helpful either. Because the default repositories have a higher priority, it first wouldn't touch anything at all. When I raised the priority of packman it immediately replaced dozens of packages with versions from packman. Net result: good old Suse dependency hell and still no functional gstreamer-ffmpeg...

How does it crash? Some output or error messages would be nice. I have opensuse 11.0 and I have the packman repo's configured. I installed gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg and it worked fine. There was no gstreamer-ffmpeg package for me in the pacman repo.

I'm afraid I can't really reproduce the message. Something about Yast having received signal 11. I did some research but I couldn't find anything more useful than "Yast is broken and you should Smart instead". Which I did, to no avail. And none of those suggestions was related to the package in question, by the way.

So you are using the 64 bit version too? Then clearly mine is an odd case. Would you mind telling me how you installed? Did you customize anything or did you just go with the defaults. All I can think of right now is that I may have deselected a feature that is required to install gstreamer_ffmpeg and that Suse can't resolve for some reason. Usually you would get one of those dialogs to fix those things up but like I said, nothing, Yast crasted the moment I clicked on Apply.

Can you reproduce the error and if so, what steps?
Does it crash while loading yast, while loading repositories, or does it crash during SuSEconfig?
Does the error say anything about an SQL database or 'db'?

I have a few things that you may try to fix this.

First, rebuild the rpm database as root:
Code:
rpm --rebuilddb
If that doesn't work, try creating a new rpm databaswe as root:
Code:
rpm --initdb
Also, try manually refreshing the yast repositories(if you can open yast):
-Open yast
-Goto Software section
-Click Software Repositories icon
-Click "Refresh" button at the bottom right of window
-Select "Refresh All Autorefreshed"
-Click finish

Post back with more error/info if you still have problems.
