Description Chris Ricker 2004-10-02 01:05:43 UTC
Installing 20041001 tree on x86_64, I see

Installing gstreamer-0.8.5-1.i386.
error: %post(gstreamer-0.8.5-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 127
Installing gstreamer-0.8.5-1.x86_64.

(%post errors for i386, not for x86_64)

Comment 1 Colin Walters 2004-10-05 18:45:59 UTC
I suspect this has something to do with the registry conflicting. 
I'll investigate further.

Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-10-06 15:02:39 UTC
I can't reproduce this, works fine for me on a fresh x86_64 rawhide
install.  Do you have any additional GStreamer plugins installed?  Say
perhaps the linva.org ones?

If you remove gstreamer-0.8.5-1.i386, do you get the error again?
If so, can you try removing the > /dev/null 2> /dev/null from the
postinst and reinstalling?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-07 03:51:55 UTC
This is because gstreamer.i386 is being installed first, without
gst-register (as that will be provided by the x86-64 package.)

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-11-03 20:43:24 UTC
It seems to me that gst-register is currently broken rather
fundamentally on multilib systems.  It has the same problem that e.g.
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders had.  So my plan is:

1) move gst-register-0.8 binaries into /usr/libexec/gst-register-$ARCH
2) write a wrapper script /usr/bin/gst-register-0.8 which invokes
3) move /var/cache/gstreamer/registry.xml into arch-specific versions,
4) modify libgstreamer to look for the arch-specific registry.

Comment 5 Colin Walters 2004-11-09 22:58:54 UTC
Ok, gstreamer-0.8.7-6 built into FC4.

Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-11-09 22:59:38 UTC
Err... didn't mean to close.

Comment 9 Colin Walters 2004-12-14 21:41:34 UTC
This is fixed now by gstreamer-0.8.7-4.FC3.0.
