Actual Results:  Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)

Resolving dependencies
Package rhythmbox needs libgstcontrol-0.7.so.5, this is not available.
Package gnome-media needs libgstreamer-0.7.so.5, this is not available.
Package rhythmbox needs libgstreamer-0.7.so.5, this is not available.

Comment 1 Martijn Bakker 2004-02-28 18:17:34 EST
not a bug in yum, but in libgstreamer.

Certain files have a different name in the development version of

Possible solution #1:
Dependencies/buildlinks should be redone in rhythmbox, gnome-media and
nautilus-media, causing them to dynamically link against
libgstreamer-0.7.so.6 instead of libgstreamer-0.7.so.5.

Possible solution #2:
The build process of libgstreamer should be altered so it produces the
correct file(s).

(first bugzilla post, forgive me if I did wrong)

Off to gstreamer for fix ...
Comment 3 John Thacker 2004-03-11 02:33:14 EST
Should be closed.  This is just a result of gstreamer's API changing
with the developmental version to require changing the library
version.  Rebuilding those packages, which has already happened in
Rawhide/Development, solves the problem.
