VLC???

Postby chrispche » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:53 pm

I'm running 64 bit Mint Debian. It won't let me install VLC. It says it won't install some of the dependencies. Can anyone tell me whats going on? If I force it to install the dependencies, it wants to remove amarok and other programs.

If you did the update and want your VLC back again,

add

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

to your /etc/apt/sources list, then

apt update
apt install libva1/stable
apt install vlc

and then wait for the package to be fixed this time instead of tinkering

hi,
re VLC see : http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=70719.
but I did not follow the above...
while waiting for a fix, for the time being, I have reinstalled VLC this way:
temporarily removed from my sources.list following:
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free
and replaced with:
deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
then

Code: Select all

# apt-get update

and

Code: Select all

# apt-get install vlc libdvdcss2

after the reinstall, have deleted again from the sources.list the two videolan.org repositories, and added again the debian-multimedia repository
:mrgreen:
