error on update

Postby tatewatkins on Thu Oct 06, 2011 5:25 pm

So i did a new install, updated the repo info and then ran the update to get this:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstxvid.so', which is also in package gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad 0.10.22-0.1

Thanks but i think i actually fixed it by telling it to install the meta codecs package and then re-do the rest?
