SUSE 11.3 Amarok MP3


Hi,

I just installed SUSE 11.3 and I am really liking it.I tried to play MP3s with Amarok. It advised me that the MP3 support was not installed,so I clicked on the Install MP3 support button.It went on to install libxine1 with Yast, to which I get the following error:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2010-11-10 09:34:15 ####

libxine1-codecs-1.1.19-1.pm.44.7.i586 requires libxine1 = 1.1.19, but this requirement cannot be provided

I have been going nowhere fast with this. I also tried looking this up on the web and found the following page:http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats/11.3, which seemed promising.I then went to install codecs-kde.ympand got the following error message:

The messages are quite clear. It's telling you that you CAN perform the installation, and is giving you options. The option you should choose is to make the vendor-change (in this case, from the openSUSE packages to the ones from Packman).

Thank you for the prompt response. The problem here is that I did, in both situations, went with the corrective action (with vendor change). Then I restart Amamrok and I get the same error message over again. Hoping this clarifies the problem.

Nope, not a bit.

Starting Amarok does not bring up the package installer. If you've actually DONE the installation, the packages will be there, and you won't be prompted. What exactly are you doing to get prompted for package installation? And are you running YAST as the root user?

If you keep clicking the link to install, it'll keep trying to install. Go here:
http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats/11.3

then do the 1-click install, and say YES to vendor changes. That's it. If you say yes, it'll install and not prompt again, but if it keeps asking you, that means you're not accepting the vendor changes, or the installation is failing.

Unhappy

Hi,

I am sorry if I am unclear. Amarok does ask me if I want to install the support for MP3, which it does - Yast comes on and then asks me for the root password. I go through the whole thing including the fix (vendor changes). The install finishes with no other errors. Then I go to re-start Aamarok and get thew exact same message - MP3 format not supported, and will ask me again if I want to install the support , just like nothing happened

I also did install, like you suggested, the codecs-kde.ymp on the http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats/11.3 page; clicked on the on the link, installed - went with the vendort changes at the conflict warning and finished the installation with no other errors. When I re-start Amarok, I still get the message that MP3 format is not supported.

Sorry, that's not true. Works and plays fine for me, and has for years, on several versions of Linux, and works for a lot of others too.

Mp3 Support Amarok

Hi Guys,


Try This :

Try to play a mp3 file, amarok asks for support to be installed, click yes ---> then it says additional repositories need to be configured, do you want to configure them now ---> click yes ---> yast opens up---> click add ---> community repositories-----> in the list displayed check 'packman'---> accept----> the repository is imported and there after the support installation goes on by itself-----> at the end you will get the message 'the required support was successfully installed'------> Restart Amarok---> you guys should be able to play mp3 now.

Thanks,
Anshul

Please open your own thread for your own question. This thread is over four months old.

If you want to do the installation, you can download the packages and save them to a CD/DVD/USB drive, and do the installation manually from there. However, you will HAVE to connect to the internet somewhere, to pull the packages down. They're not on the DVD, but come from one of the community repositories.
