    What do you mean I don't have codecs?


    Hello all.

    I am having a problem with Yast acknowedging that I have the win32-codec package installed.

    Every type of media I have plays fine, It's just that when I go to Install software It complains that it needs w32-codecs, and ImageMagick. (Both work.)

    When downloading the codec pack, It crashes. Something about a bad blob. I have tried to install this through Yast, by Command Line RPM, and by tar, uninstall and reinstall. Yet still apparently Yast is not satisfied.

    I guess my question is how do I trash my Yast RPM Database and rebuild it?

    Thanks in advance.

    to rebuild the rpm database, in a console type
    Code:
    rpm -rebuilddb
    (think thats right,haven't done it for a while)

    Minor typo deltaflyer, it should be:
    Code:
    rpm --rebuilddb
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
