    installing amaroK - FC5, fresh install


    let me start by saying that I had amarok up and running on FC4, but when I updated to FC5, i couldn't get it to open.
    so, i uninstalled it using yum: "yum remove amarok"
    that worked.
    so now, i go back to yumex to reinstall it, and it says that i don't have to proper dependecies which are:
    libgstreamer-0.8.so.1
    libcrypto.so.5
    libssl.so.5

    so now i open a konsole and decide to look for these myself, and much to my suprise (not really) i actually do have these three things that it says i am missing.
    Code:
    [root@localhost]# locate libcrypt
    /lib/libcrypt-2.4.so
    /lib/libcrypt.so.1
    /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7a
    /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8a
    /lib/libcrypto.so.4
    /lib/libcrypto.so.6
    /usr/lib/libcrypt.a
    /usr/lib/libcrypt.so
    /usr/lib/libcrypto.a
    /usr/lib/libcrypto.so
    /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libcrypto.pc
    Code:
    [root@localhost]# locate libssl
    /lib/libssl.so.0.9.7a
    /lib/libssl.so.0.9.8a
    /lib/libssl.so.4
    /lib/libssl.so.6
    /usr/lib/libssl.a
    /usr/lib/libssl.so
    /usr/lib/libssl3.so
    /usr/lib/firefox-1.5/libssl3.so
    /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libssl.pc
    Code:
    [root@localhost]# locate libgstreamer
    /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so
    /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0
    /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0.7.0
    /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/gstreamer-0.10/libgstreamer.ht
    as you can see, from the output of the locate command, i clearly have those 3 dependencies that it claims i am missing

    so, how do i fix the problem?

    thanks in advance

    I'd fix it by downloading the binary distros from somewhere like livna. There are instructions on that site for installing the repository in FC5. That should allow you to install all the codec packages you need without having to build anything from source.

    thanks for the reply,

    i was using yum to install it, not installing from source. thats the thing - I can't figure out why its saying i don't have the dependencies when i do. any other ideas?

    If it cant satisfy dependencies then there are packages it cant find. Did you try setting up the Livna repository?
