Mplayer-1.3.0+38016-2.x86_64 has missing requires of

Actually this is discovered by running ‘dnf check’ which at the moment finds 3 problems 2 of which are packages the obsolete themselves. Just reporting in case these could become a problem or a bug.

# dnf check
kdnssd-5.53.0-1.x86_64 is obsoleted by kdnssd-5.53.0-1.x86_64
mplayer-1.3.0+38016-2.x86_64 has missing requires of
rfkill-2.33-2.x86_64 is obsoleted by rfkill-2.33-2.x86_64
Error: Check discovered 3 problem(s)

Post-edit: I think to only have these 3 errors at this stage of development is pretty darn good actually. Kudos to all devs and package maintainers.

For mplayer. Do you have enabled restricted repo? If not, try enable it. Then update system and check again.

Yes it is enabled. I would suspect an incorrect package name in a file somewhere.

mplayer is looking for libx264 where we have lib64x264 maybe also it is looking for 120 and we have 152?

Has the @AngryPenguin been busy? I see progress:

Changing title to reflect current conditions.

Only one error on this at this stage, remarkable, simply remarkable.

From what I see, issue with rfkill has been fixed by @bero Here: rfkill shouldn't obsolete itself · OpenMandrivaAssociation/util-linux@0f92efe · GitHub

You’re probably right. Last Mplayer for x86_64 was build 11 Jan 2018 (almost one year ago). Also as - omv3001.x86_64.
It looks like Mplayer just needs to be rebuilt with current libs.
Anyway, the existing version does not work anyway, so I think it need to rebuild as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, there are errors during its building:


I’ll fix mplayer, but the preferred fix is to use mpv instead. mpv is a more actively maintained fork of mplayer that works pretty much the same way.


OK, this was just reported because it is what came up with ‘dnf check’. I’ll test 'em both but I’d be more concerned with issues with mpv than mplayer. To be honest haven’t really done much detailed testing of multimedia yet. Testing is time consuming.

All these are fixed. Here ‘dnf check’ reports no issues.
