    Crashed, now can't re-install smplayer, et al


    I had a serious system crash, and have ALMOST gotten things back to normal. I've a few more things to do, but they are on the back burner for now.

    I'm running openSUSE 10.3, and when I tried to get SMplayer back, I got errors that it needed MPlayer. SO, I tried to get that, but got a bunch of dependencies that I can't seem to get...

    I've done a search here, and found a thread with the same problem, but it was from 5 or 6 years ago, and the link provided (as per a post on the thread) doesn't even show up, let alone work.

    My question is this...I need to get mplayer/smplayer back working on my system, but have NO idea how to get the dependencies

    Please help me!

    Just a bit of an update...it seems that most things I try to install (using Yast) shows unresolvable dependencies. Maybe I had a repo in the old install that I don't have now or something. I'm at a loss for what to do or where to look.

    Check in yast software for an option that gives the repos to use.
    Then check them against those listed here:
    Additional YaST Package Repositories - openSUSE
    and here
    Index of /update
    Yast should resolve the dependencies.
    Use the dvd smplayer from the packman repo for full multimedia support.

    What caused the crash?? How did you resolve the problems?

    If you reinstalled you will need to reset the repositories at least add packman.

    I've check the repos to use, and HAVE packman, and TRIED to install smplayer. But Yast ISN'T resolving the dependencies. I'll put the list of stuff here for ya to see:

    disregard this thread now. I had failed to insure the right stuff was selected in COMMUNITIES (repos)

    Now I just have to get things sorted that I thought were sorted...thanks for the help.

    Your RPM database may have been corrupted try

    as root

    rpm --rebuilddb

    expect it to take a while

    No, I hadn't checked in Yast->Software->Community Repositories. I went through and checked Packman's there, and voila! dependencies got resolved.

    My other issues are/were now just tracking down what I used to have on the computer. I think it may have been on another forum that the idea to check the Community Repositories was mentioned.
