Default totem: something wrong with gstreamer-plugins-ugly

When running totem to play a move (e.g. mpeg-1 file), it fails with the
message: "A MPEG-1 System Stream demuxer plugin is required to play this
stream, but not installed."

After reading docs and trying various things I've reduced the source of
the problem to the package gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

# rpm --rebuilddb
# rpm -q libdvdread
libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5
# rpm -i gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libdvdread.so.3 is needed by
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386

And, after erasing libdvdread and trying to install both packages in one
command, I get pretty much the same contradictory error message:

# rpm -iv libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5.i386.rpm
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libdvdread.so.3 is needed by
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386

There's no problem installing libdvdread by itself:
# rpm -iv libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5.i386.rpm
Preparing packages for installation...
libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5
# rpm -q libdvdread
libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5


So how are people getting totem to play movies?

Also:

# rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-ugly
package gstreamer-plugins-ugly is not installed
# yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
...
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386 from rpmforge has
depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3 is needed by package
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386 (rpmforge)
Error: Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3 is needed by package
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386 (rpmforge)
....

So is there an upgrade to gstreamer-plugins-ugly which looks for the
upgraded libdvdread?

You problem is to mix packages from different repositories. This causes
non matched dependencies. As the install if gstreamer-plugins-ugly
states it misses a specific library version. The libdvdread package you
are hand installing does not provide that one.

It is much easier to properly setup repositories using yum. Details are
documented within the CentOS wiki and on the rpmforge project site as well.

Dependency problems from the rpmforge repository should be communicated
on the project's mailing list, so that the maintainers can fix the
packages provided.

Looks like your yum setup or cache is not proper:

tmp $ rpm -qp --provides libdvdread-0.9.7-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
libdvdread.so.3
libdvdread = 0.9.7-1.el5.rf

The latest libdvdread rpm from rpmforge provides the required lib. Maybe
retry to install after a "yum clean all".

Alexander,

Thanks for your replies. What you say above sounds plausible because I
have libdvdread-4.1.3-1.el5 installed, but
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm is looking for
libdvdread.so.3.

Per your recommendation, I searched the centos wiki but got thousands of
hits, read through the first (and most relevant) hits and found nothing
which seemed relevant. So I browsed around, found
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum; it didn't say anything
relevant.

Then I found and read
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories?action=show&redirect=Repositories.
This page does mention specific repositories, but I don't see where my
yum repository setup doesn't conform with what the wiki describes:

# pwd;ll
/etc/yum.repos.d
total 88
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 302 Dec 21 11:48 atrpms.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2882 Oct 23 14:20 CentOS-Base.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2323 Oct 5 00:51 CentOS-Base.repo.v.3.4
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 267 Jan 13 12:06 centos-livecd.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 600 Oct 5 00:52 CentOS-Media.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 954 Apr 25 2008 epel.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1054 Apr 25 2008 epel-testing.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1070 Dec 6 2008 livna.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 739 Jan 4 08:55 mirrors-rpmforge
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 436 Jan 4 08:55 rpmforge.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 325 Jan 4 08:55 rpmforge-testing.repo

Moreover, after erasing my installed libdvdread, I did:
# yum install libdvdread
....
================================================== ==============================
Package Arch Version Repository
Size
================================================== ==============================
Installing:
libdvdread i386 4.1.3-1.el5 epel
54 k

Transaction Summary
================================================== ==============================
Install 1 Package(s)
Update 0 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
....

Isn't epel pretty much a standard repository?

If I'm missing something of what you're saying, please clarify and/or be
more specific, because I'm not seeing where in yum the problem might be.

Thanks again,
ken

I've never been able to get totem to work at all on any of my CentOS
machines. There's some magic involved that I don't know.

I use xine and mplayer, and they handle most everything, thought xine
is better for movies. Thus, I am not a totem user.

Good luck.

Are all those repos enabled? If yes, you for sure will run into
problems. This list has a history of examples.

"Standard" in which way?

You already found the right wiki page

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

which explicitly says:

"It may not mix well with other 3rd party repos. So, make SURE you are
using the Priorities yum plugin if you are using EPEL ... especially if
you mix its packages with those from other 3rd party repos."

> If I'm missing something of what you're saying, please clarify and/or be

Be selective with the repositories you use. Make use of priorities and
protectbase yum plugins. Using ATrpms, EPEL, livna and rpmforge
alltogether, you will see lots of conflicts.

rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME} %{VENDOR}
' | sort -k4

can help you to see from which source you already installed which package.

as stated on that page, mixing 3rd party repos does not always work so
well. Your problem is an example of what can go wrong.

epel is one of the big 3rd party repos, rpmforge is another.

you are installing libdvdread from epel and trying to install
gstreamer-plugins-ugly from rpmforge.
Unfortunately the former doesn't have the right lib version for the latter.

One solution would be to give higher priority to rpmforge over epel.
Then uninstall [the epel] libdvdread, and yum install
gstreamer-plugins-ugly should properly pull in the rpmforge libdvdread.

Yes, I saw that warning... in the section on epel. There's also a
general 'mea non culpa' on that page about using 3d party repos in
general. For that matter, I'm pretty sure that there's a "we don't
guarantee" clause packaged somewhere in every linux distro. I even got
that line at work from paid-for redhat support in regard to a paid-for
redhat system. If I stopped doing things that "might not work", I'd be
fastened to the couch with cobwebs. I tried several of packages from
epel and they worked-- at least I haven't traced any specific problem
back to epel... well, until now... with your help. Point is, I don't
feel much tech shame for getting a package from epel. I figure that if
it was a terrible repo, it would say so in the centos wiki... or epel
wouldn't be listed there at all.

Right, and that's what was bugging me from the start: I had
libdvdread.0.4 installed and gstreamer-plugins-ugly wanted a *lower*
version. Aren't all the capabilities/functions from the 0.3 version in
v.0.4? My hunch was that, yes, they would all be there. This is basic
upward compatibility, a part of what linux has been about for decades.
If I had the time, I'd compare the two libdvdread library files to find
out for sure. The point of it would be to find out why the
gstreamer-plugins-ugly rpm complains about the newer libdvdread version.
To my mind, that simply shouldn't happen... might be an error in the
way it was packaged.

Yes!! That works... at least to get both of those packages installed at
the same time. However, totem is still broke; i.e., it's still telling
me that I'm missing a plug-in when I try to play a movie (mpeg-1 or wmv).


Hmmm. I didn't mention this previously for the sake of simplicity, but
few hours ago I did have both libdvdread.0.4 and gstreamer-plugins-ugly
installed at the same time and was able to play a movie (mpeg-1) in
totem. But "yum update" complained about it, so I figured I should fix
it. If anyone from redhat or someone packaging gstreamer should be
reading here, this might be a direction to look into.


Thanks again, Nicolas. You did help, but I guess totem needs more than
you and I together can give it.
