Software :: Glib For GStreamer For Banshee Installation / Upgrade
Oct 9, 2010
I'm running Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5 . I tried to compile banshee from source, which required gstreamer, which required glib >= 2.20. Of that, my system has glib 2.12.3. So I downloaded the source for glib 2.24.2 and I ran the ./configure, make and make install which seemed to run without issue. When I tried to run ./configure on gstreamer 0.10.30 after installing glib 2.24.2, however, it told me that my glib was 2.12.3. So I ran configure, make, and make install on glib 2.24.2 once again, rebooted, and then tried to configure gstreamer 0.10.30.
It still told me that my glib was not sufficient.
(configure: Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.20' but version of GLib is 2.12.3:
configure: error: This package requires GLib >= 2.20 to compile.)
I am doing all this in a terminal window, having SU'ed to root. So I'm lost. Any solution other than ditching OEL in favor of another distro?
I want to install "gst-plugin-base" but i get this error: "this version of gst-plugin-base needs glib 2.20 but installed version of glib is 2.18". I installed glib 2.20 and now I'm trying to install gst-plugin-base but i get that error again.
I installed OSSv4 replacing the default ALSA and everything worked just fine with some workarounds... until I upgraded to Lucid Lynx. Now apps like Totem and Rhythmbox which use the gstreamer framework have no sound. Does anybody know why?
Nothing to do. Used zypper dup to upgrade from 11.3. Still have boot problems (will open another thread), but had major problems upgrading timezone. File downloads would reach some percentage of completion, then B/s would slowly reduce, to zero. Upgrade would halt until manually aborted. Solution was to manually download 5 timezone files and install them in a directory repository. File download did not specify just the timezone file, but also a part of the directory. Could this be part of the problem? example: ./rpm/i586/timezone-2011d-0.2.1.i586.rpm instead of just the file name.System is a Dell 3000 (Pentium 4, 512MB memory).
I am using Banshee 1.6 (beta 2) 1.5.1. I'm actually interested in is getting the Amazon mp3 extension to work, and I don't see this extension in my current version of Banshee. I tried to upgrade & ended up wiping my whole hard drive & had to re-install 11.2 but I'm sure that was my inexperience more than anything else.
I'm not sure of the proper procedure to upgrade any particular package on 11.2 actually. I just leave them alone & it works great. I could add the Banshee repo (which I have not done) but even if I uninstall 1.6 which I have now, and then re-install the newer app from the repo, it will not work. It says it installs properly (I know this from yesterday) but the program doesn't show up in the menu.
I was trying to convert a flac audio to mp3 using soundconverter & its failing with the error:
GStreamer error: Gstreamer encountered a general stream error.
I should note that the flac is a rip of an actual Mono Vinyl disc. Am not exactly sure how that was done but I was interested in converting some those files to ogg & mp3. OGG conversion doesn't give any error.
Below is the result when launching soundconverter from the terminal & trying to convert the flac file(s) to mp3 (i just tried ogg to mp3 & the same error occurs):
Code: $ soundconverter SoundConverter 1.4.4 using Gstreamer version: 0.10.28, Python binding version: 0.10.18 using gio
I'm currently installing GTK+ under Fedora Core 13. Before you install GTK+ you have to install GLIB, Pango and ATK. When installing ATK it goes wrong. After giving the "./configure" I get following error:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.25.8, but GLIB (2.24.1) *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best *** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error *** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing *** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is *** required on your system
Apparently there is an old version of GLIB on my system bugging my installation process. Does anybody know how to get rid of this old version?
I'm trying to install the latest version of tracker - 0.8.15. When I run ./configure, I come up with an error like this:
Code: checking for getline... yes checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes checking for GLIB2... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.24.0) were not met: No package 'glib-2.0' found
Surely the libglib2.0-0 package is some kind of replacement for glib-2.0? My understanding from the man page is that PKG_CONFIG_PATH is some way of linking to and checking requested packages... is this right? Can I change it to point at the libglib package instead?
Just upgraded to ubuntu natty and evolution hangs.
Receive the following errors.allen@FA2096349:~/.evolution$ evolution(evolution:25316): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Object class EMFolderTree doesn't implement property 'paste-target-list' from interface 'ESelectable' (evolution:25316): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Object class EMFolderTree doesn't implement property 'copy-target-list' from interface 'ESelectable'
The evolution app starts, but all you get is Loading... for the folders in the side bay and the app is hung. Nothing is selectable and you have to CTRL-C out of it or use the kill app.
I pre-upgraded a working F14 system which was reading MPEG4 xvid (xvidcore rpm). Since the upgrade gstreamer refuses to handle that stream: ** Message: don't know how to handle video/x-xvid.It seems the codec is not registered with gstreamer.
I am trying to build Pidgin on my Lucid install and on running configure, I get the following:
configure: error: You must have GLib 2.4.0 or newer development headers installed to build.
If you have these installed already you may need to install pkg-config so I can find them. I tried installing pkg-config, but it's already in its newest version. I then tried going to the following website
and downloaded and extracted glib on my computer. That changed nothing. I was hoping someone could tell me what's going on here. I just tried the this:
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0
libgtk2.0-0 is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
i just tried to install Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 on my old Amilo Lifebook P Series.

When I try to use Rythmbox, I got a message error saying that your "GStreamer installation is missing a plugin" and it says that is ID3 tag demuxer I already have this streamer plugins installed, so I don't know which one is missing
I keep getting the following msg as I try to upgrade from 10.04 -> 10.10 ... "Could not calculate the upgrade An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages. This can be caused by:
* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report." I don't think any of the issues above apply - can anyone offer advice on how to get around or "force " the upgrade

We are considering using Ubuntu server as a plat form for an erp software we are purchasing. The erp software company wants to know what the glib c is so that they can tell us if their sofware will work. Can anyone tell me what the glib c is? I have not downloaded it yet.
I have posted this a couple of places - The Bodhi team and I are looking for some help from someone that knows their way around C and GTK/glib. Firstly - we are interested in having an extension written for the Midori webrowser that would allow it to open apt: protocol links with the command /usr/bin/apturl Second, I am interested in getting this and this added to the file manager PCManFM as features.
While upgrading to a newer version of Ubuntu I noticed a warning saying that the installation/upgrade should not be interupted. Unfortunately though, during this process my computer froze up and I had to shut it down. Ubuntu no longer starts on my computer. I still have Windows though, which is what I'm using now.
