Description Chris Ricker 2004-10-01 21:05:43 EDT
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 14:45:59 EDT
I suspect this has something to do with the registry conflicting. 
I'll investigate further.
Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-10-06 11:02:39 EDT
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 2004-10-06 23:51:55 EDT
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 15:43:24 EST
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 17:58:54 EST
Ok, gstreamer-0.8.7-6 built into FC4.
Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-11-09 17:59:38 EST
Err... didn't mean to close.
Comment 9 Colin Walters 2004-12-14 16:41:34 EST
This is fixed now by gstreamer-0.8.7-4.FC3.0.
