Unlocatable package cdrecord
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:During an attempt to add packages, I get the
message: Unlocatable package: cdrecord required by nautilus cd-burn.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select any package to add
2.click - install packages
Additional info:CDRecord is installed and is found by rpm -qi. It was
instaled during the original installation. CD Recording with my DVD
drive onto a CD had been painfully slow, 1X at best. I believe I
installed a source code version in the hope this would improve speed.
I hope this process does not break RPM since much software for sound
and video editing is not included in the distribution.
I have a similar problem that is probably the same bug.
I did a FC2 install without gnome installed. I have subsequently 'yum
installed' pretty much everything gnome-related.
If I run system-config-packages and try to select "Gnome Desktop", it
complains that "xorg-x11-libs" is not installed, despite the fact that
it IS installed. In fact, upon startup, system-config-packages reports:
* using xorg-x11-libs-0:6.7.0-2.i386 to satisfy xorg-x11-libs-6.7.0-2
I have pointed system-config-packages at the CD isos as well (with the
command line argument), but that has no effect: the error message
Perahps this is useful info: xorg-x11-libs is "required by"
xorg-x11-xfs, xorg-x11, xorg-x11-devel. All of these packages are also
I've hit the same problem on a virgin install on a i686 box. The only
rpm I've instlled is one for RealPlayer, everything else has been
updated through Up2Date as I'm a newbie to the happy world of Linux.
Cdrecord works fine and seems to be registered ok in everything but
the package manager accessed through add/remove applications.
Hehe, the same thing happend to me yesterday.
I wasn't able to install k3b and various other files.
(DVD-Installation with "Everything" and also other selections failed)
I found out that the installed comps.rpm hat wrong versions. i copied
the hdlist, hdlist2, etc files from the fedora core 2.b dvd directly
to their installed location (these files are located by the comps.rpm)
and everything worked out fine.
(ah, i used the fc 2.b dvd from the german redhat magazin)
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing as resolved in later releases
