fedora core 3 users/install xine/dependency on libcurl.so.2/fails to install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
when using fedora core 3 and when installing the programs xine or
xmule one will notice they are dependent on libcurl.so.2 and will not
install apparently because fedora core 3 uses licurl.so.3. Apparently
libcurl.so.3 will not work with the latest versions of xmule and xine.
these are only 2 programs that i've experienced personally that will
suffer the libcurl.so.2 problem. I've looked around on google.com and
apparently many people are having this problem with the same programs
and others. A simple search on google.com keywords "libcurl.so.2
fedora" will suffice. the remedies that have been suggested in the
various forums, such as "only install src rpm's" and 'here download
this library" have all failed in regards to getting these applications
running on fedore core 3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the latest fedora core 3 and the latest xine and xmule.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.whether using apt-get, synaptic, or installing yourself with rpm or
src.rpm or tar.gz you will experience this problem.
programs fail to install due to dependency of libcurl.so.2
programs that are dependent on this libcurl.so.2 ought to be able to b
e installed in fedora core 3 considering the popularity of both xine
I think you may be better off asking about this on the fedora-list mailing list
(http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/ ) as it's not actually a bug using
programs shipped in the stock distro (neither xine nor xmule are shipped with
Fedora Core 3). Maybe freshrpms.net would useful to you. If you are installing
programs from elsewhere I suspect this bugzilla is the wrong place to report
I'm also not sure what this has to do with Synaptics Touchpad Driver either...
Thanks Sitsofe. synaptic != synaptics I guess.
Closing NOTABUG. Required packages need to be rebuilt against FC3, please
contact appropriate 3rd party repo. Note fedora.us has not rebuilt for FC3 yet.
