    I am trying to update fedora core 4 with yum but keep getting this error
    Error: Missing Dependency: /usr/bin/gst-register-0.8 is needed by
    package gstreamer-plugins
    now I have /usr/bin/gst-register-0.8 but that doesn't seem to matter and
    I also tried the --exclude= option and that doesn't work.
    what do I need to do to get past this.
    This is what I have installed:
    gstreamer-tools-0.8.11-1.1.fc4.nr
    gstreamer-devel-0.8.11-1.1.fc4.nr
    gstreamer-0.8.11-1.1.fc4.nr
    gstreamer-plugins-devel-0.8.11-1.1.fc4.nr
    gstreamer-plugins-0.8.11-1.1.fc4.nr

    thanks

    This seems to be unofficial RPMs, the latest version for FC4 is 0.8.12-1 and
    the previous one is 0.8.10-1.

    '--exclude' option makes RPM to install without a program, this will in your
    case make the installation even more unstable, you should use '--force
    --nodeps' options.

    Avoid to use '-i' option, do use '-Uvh', as you want to upgrade and not dubble
    install packages (this breaks things even more).

    Last, use the official packages.

  3. Re: dependency hell

    Thanks for the info but still no joy. It looks like my only option here
    is to remove all the gstreamer rpm's. I'm not even sure how they got
    installed. I don't use them to my knowledge.
    I believe these are used with gnome and I don't use gnome but kde. I
    can see this is going to be fun...........

    gstreamer is rather common. I believe I have it installed on this KDE-only
    SuSE box. I can't recall what it was needed for. I suggest you
    install/update that package in isolation or ignore "system inconsistencies"
    warnings. I can often do so in YaST as I don't have access to the
    installation CD's.

    Best wishes,

    Roy

  5. Re: dependency hell

    Hi,

    Well I got past the gstreamer problem. I forgot I had apt-get
    installed and ran that but now I have a bigger problem.
    While running apt-get or even yum at this point I run accross this
    error: There are multiple versions of "librsvg2" in your system.
    Now when I try to remove or update it I get the following:

    Committing changes...
    Preparing... ###########################################
    [100%]
    /usr/bin/update-gdk-pixbuf-loaders: line 27:
    /etc/gtk-2.0/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf.loaders: No such file or
    directory
    error: %postun(librsvg2-2.9.5-2.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

    Now this one is one I haven't been able to get past whether I try to
    update the file or remove it. So I am literally stuck in limbo now.

    Philip,


    I had this too in the past, so I made the directory.
    In your case:
    mkdir -p /etc/gtk-2.0/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/
    and created the file by touch:
    touch /etc/gtk-2.0/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf.loaders

    And tried the rpm -e again.

    For me it worked.


    Kind regards,


    Jan Gerrit Kootstra

    Hi,

    Thank you. That did the trick. You just saved me a reload. The
    updates are going without a problem now.
    Again thanks to all who helped get me going again..
