mplayer application does not work after upgrading from Fedora Core to Fedora Core 2.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem: Mplayer no longer works after upgrading to
Fedira Core 2. I get the following error if I attempt to start the
application from a command line:
[rmccord@Hendrix rmccord]$ gmplayer
gmplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libdv.so.2: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
After running the 'find' command as root (find / -name gmplayer -print
), its located in '/usr/bin/gmplayer'. An rpm query shows the
[root@Hendrix rmccord]# rpm -q mplayer
However libdv.so.2 was never found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run 'Movie Player' from gnome menu, or 'gmplayer' from command line.
Steps to Reproduce:
We don't support mplayer.
You can work around this problem with FC2. Search in your lib
directory, mine is /usr/lib for file name like libdv*. I found
libdv.so.4. Then create symbolic link to libdv.so.2:
ln -s libdv.so.4 libdv.so.2
For FC2 libdv.so.4 is linked to file libdv.so.4.0.0
it's all good
