OpenSUSE Multimedia :: XBMC Playback Of DVD Folders Broken After Packman Updates?

Jun 29, 2011

I run XBMC 10.1 (packman version) on openSUSE 11.4 x86_64. After a normal package update (zypper up) last weekend, I can't play none of my DVD folders (VIDEO_TS structure) anymore. When selecting a movie to play nothing happens (XBMC log file message "WARNING: could not find codec parameters for /path_to_movie/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO"). AVIs still play fine. I reproduced the problem on my laptop too: After the following updates the problem occurs:

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded From 11.2 To 11.4 - Switching Systems Packages To PACKMAN Packages

Aug 31, 2011

I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.4 and the installation/upgrade worked just perfect. I than followed the instructions in the "New User How To/FAQ", "Multimedia and restricted format" post. I was following the instruction in the 11.4 section. I added the additional repositories as explained. I then was on the section where it talks about going into software management and selecting the "Packman" repository and clicking to "switch systems packages" to the versions in this repository (packman). I than click this link and the "warning" screen appears and I am present with conflict resolution after conflict resolution dialog. It just seems that there are some many conflicts, it just seems wrong and I canceled.

The installation/upgrade appears to have worked just fine. My mail is there, audio and dvd play back worked the first try after the upgrade. I am not clear if this is what I should expect or their is something wrong or if I even need to complete this step for a successfully installation.

OpenSUSE :: Force System Updates To Use Packman Repository?

Sep 23, 2010

I was wondering on the updater service slowly over time installing packages overtop packman packages.

For example, some multimedia guides mention to switch all packages to a certain repository like packman. At some point afterwards system updates will overwrite these.

I don't fully understand how updates work, however, is it needed or possible to set a rule for which repos are used as a reference for system updates?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 - No Packman 64 Bit Stuff

Oct 21, 2010

I have these supposed missing 64 bit libs for everything on my main computer. I keep getting the following type messages whilst trying to get things working on a fresh 11.3 install on my test box. All these 64 bit things were installed on it before I wiped it and did a fresh install. I got it when I installed the codecs for gstreamer/kaffeine as well but went ahead and installed. Where did the 64 bit stuff go? I even changed packman mirrors.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Packman MPlayer And Vorbis On 11.2?

Dec 21, 2009

I've noticed the Packman mplayer's ffvorbis doesn't seem to be working on 11.2 (x86)-any vorbis seems to be decoded as very quiet noise that roughly matches the sound that ought to be made. Audio output (-ao) doesn't make any difference, and I've the same problem on three different machines. Xine, vlc, ffplay, etc. all work, as does -afm tremor (the reference decoder) with mplayer. The verbose output from mplayer seems to be the same between these systems and an older 11.0 system with a not-very-recently-upgraded version of mplayer. Unfortunately, packman does not keep old versions of packages, and compiling mplayer is somewhat of a chore, so it is not immediately easy to test an old version of MPlayer on 11.2 for me.

I'm using the samples from Music to test with, so I assume there is nothing peculiar about the files.

Is anyone successfully using current (1.0rc2_r29796) Packman MPlayer to play either vorbis .oggs or video with vorbis audio on 11.2? If so, was it a fresh install or an upgrade system? Architecture? Etc.-I've run out of machines to easily test on, and it doesn't work on any of them.

I realize that this is better-addressed to the Packman mailing list, but very few users seem to read it, and for whatever reason, the packagers never seem to have any problems with their own packages (even when they are clearly broken for many others); so I thought I would give it a try here first.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Tapping Instead Of Packman For Cecilia / Csound?

Feb 25, 2011

I downloaded it from packman and it's not working. I tried loading some old projects from when I was working Cecilia in Xandros, but they don't load. I tried loading .wav and .aiff files, but they don't load. Unfortunately, this app is useless, but it worked perfectly in Xandros (which is useless). Is there a particular repository I should be tapping instead of packman for Cecilia/Csound? Maybe this app is just plain outdated.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulse Audio Volume Controller: Stop It From Changing Settings?

Jun 12, 2010

I'm still working on ubuntu 9.10 with an acer aspire 1810tz. To use my microphone I found out that I have to change my microphone settings because it's mono and the default setting is thinking it's stereo: With the Volume Controller I setup one chancel to 5 and the other to 90 and the mic is working fine. Starting Skype and using it I see that the setting is reducing the volume for the mic below 20, so nobody can hear me. I tried closing first Volume Controller and then starting Skype, no matter the volume of the mic is reduced. How do I stop this behavior?

OpenSUSE :: Restrict Zypper To Install Only Updates And No New Packages?

Feb 23, 2011

I'm a long time Linux user but new to Suse. I got a couple of questions I was hoping someone might shed some light to. I'm running OpenSuse 11.3. -After running 'zypper update' I see it's listing a couple of new packages it wants to install (flash-player among them). I thought update would mean update existing packages, not install random new packages. Is there a way to restrict zypper to install only updates and no new packages?

-I'm trying to find a repository that has the complete courier mail server (smtp, webmail and all the rest, not just the imap server) but I'm having no luck. Anyone know where I could get it? I know I can build it myself. -Is there a way to automatically download all available updates so that they can later be installed interactively?

OpenSUSE :: Run "zypper Up" Get Recurring Updates For Same Packages?

Mar 19, 2010

I noticed that when i run "zypper up" i get recurring updates for the same packages. these are mainly KDE packages, but also virtualbox and vlc. I understand that at least with KDE 4.4 - the version i now have, it is under constant development, but it looks to me like i keep getting the same updates all the time. i'm talking about several times a week. running zypper lr yields this:


my guess is that i might have repositories that contain the same packages, and i'm upgrading downgrading all the time.

OpenSUSE :: The Packman Repository Not Refreshing?

Jan 18, 2011

I'm having a problem with the Packman repository lately. First, I added the Packman repo using a Germany mirror link. Everything worked fine until I decided to switch the repository URL to the standard Packman one [URL] instead of a mirror.Then I started getting an error while refreshing repositories:


Error refreshing service Packman Repository ( Parse error: repoindex.xml[1] Document is empty

Quite frustratingly, for some reason zypper has made the Packman repo invisible and I can't see it anywhere (not in Yast Software Repositories or in the /etc/zypp/repos.d folder. Yet, it still tries to use that repository when refreshing, and obviously gives me an error in the process. how to completely remove all traces of this Packman repo from my system so I can start anew? (aside from an OS reinstall?)

OpenSUSE Network :: Why No Firestarter In The Packman

Apr 22, 2011

this is in part a *****. The Yast2 firewall interface is inferior. Firestarter and Guarddog are much better - but they are not in the packman list of stuff you can install because you like it better. How many of you care to offer an opinion as to why these other firewall apps are NOT packaged for openSUSE installation?

OpenSUSE :: RPM Warning Installing From Packman Repo?

Nov 28, 2009

I've just done a clean install of OS 11.2 x86_64, KDE 4.3.1, and got the following message from RPM while installing multimedia support files from Packman using zypper on the command line:

warning: /var/cache/zypp/packages/ Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9a795806 Similar messages were coming up while installing other packages through Yast, and I'm wondering what the issue is. All of the messages were about the "key ID" at the end of the example line. (Everything is working so I'm not sure if this is a problem or not.)

OpenSUSE :: Deluge 1.3.0 - Request Packman To Package For 11.3?

I know the packman people don't pay attention to these forums. How do you request they update to Deluge 1.3.0 which is the current stable version for 11.3? Where do you go that they pay attention to?

I don't know how to package this myself so really don't need to be told how to do it.

I don't care if they change it during their session, but it must revert to the default when the session is logged-out or shutdown.
