Screenshot showing "kerneloops needs plugin"

Description of problem:
Each time I start rhythmbox and start playing a clip, I get a popup error indicating a missing plugin:

"XXXX requires an addition plugin", where XXXX is a "random" process (e.g., kerneloops, pidgin, ...)

No music....  When I clear the error by selecting "close", the clip immediately pauses.  Pressing "play" a second time starts the music. 

This only occurs on the first "play" of a session.  Restarting rhythmbox repeats this.

I attach 2 different screenshots showing the error popup.

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2009-06-18 12:11:25 EDT
What's the output of "ps aux" when this happens?

I'd like to see what arguments are passed to the helper.
Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2009-06-18 13:59:26 EDT
I get this too on F11, always happens after rb start the first time I hit play. This is how the helper is called in that case:

/usr/libexec/gst-install-plugins-helper --transient-for=60817442 gstreamer|0.10|rhythmbox|GStreamer element input-selector|element-input-selector
Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2009-06-18 14:04:53 EDT
Hmm, actually my case is a bit different, it's always saying "<song name> requires additional plugin" and the plugin is always gstreamer input selector. Searching for it doesn't succeed but it does play the song ok.
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2009-06-18 14:10:01 EDT
$ gst-inspect input-selector
Factory Details:
  Long name:	Input selector
  Class:	Generic
  Description:	N-to-1 input stream selectoring
  Binary package:	gst-plugins-bad rpmfusion rpm
  Origin URL:		http://rpmfusion.org/


Rhythmbox really shouldn't require a plugin from gst-plugins-bad. I'll try to fix this.

Tom, could you clone the bug against gnome-packagekit? The "kerneloops needs this" is bogus, and a bug in GPK.
