Todays update wants to remove mint-meta-codecs and mint-meta-debian.
That does not sound correct. I have not tried this ofcourse yet :-)

Probably those mint-meta-packages use some =-dependency instead of =<... Anyway, I went ahead with the install. Maybe I'll get back to you at some point to report on what happened. ;)

OK, you busted me. Once a day I update from the terminal. I let it do whatever it wants. While the updates you have are what I installed, I do not recall having anything removed. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

It seems that gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad (coming from debian-multimedia) has not been updated yet so it is removed because it conflicts with the new gstreamer0.10-plugins-xxx (coming from debian).
mint-meta-xxx stuff depends on gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad so they get removed too!
I would refrain to update the four gstreamer-related packages (the other updates should not break) until the debian-multimedia package get updated too.

I just updated the python-xapian package plus the gstreamer packages:
  • gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
    gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio
    libgstfarsight0.10-0
Updating just these removed the gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad package. Checked and I can still play MP3s in Rhythmbox, play flashvideo in VLC and youtube with audio in each.

I did notice the mint-meta-debian packages is no longer in the update list.

From the description of gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad
This package contains plugins from the "bad" set, a set of non-free
plug-ins that might pose distribution problems.

Bad plugins are faac, mpeg2enc, vdpau and xvid.
Maybe some multimedia format can no longer be played by gstreamer-based players after the update.
AFAIK vlc and mplayer should not be affected.

Thanks Ok So that answers that but I am still no further forward with the problem of the screen refresh. The problem is definitely with these files as I cannot get a working system after the update. I am having the same problem with Mint 11 so assume there must be a bug.

SOLVED SORT OF

I noted that after updating the above that the 3D graphics which were not working previously, were working. If you rotate the cube when the screen is not refreshing then the screen refresh works perfectly. If I stop compiz at startup then all is perfect. This is therefore a problem with compiz and the new intel driver

I made update today without any following problems. (sudo apt-get update and sudo apt dist-upgrade) As usual.

Isn't a meta-package only a kind of container for a number of packages, only used for easy-installation purpose?
In that case, it should only be like an empty box to throw away when it's used? :roll:

Same issue for me. The dist-upgrade wanted to remove gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad libtar mint-meta-codecs mint-meta-debian.

I decided to freeze these packages (echo "name_of_the_pkg hold | dpkg --set-selections) and wait.

I don't know if this is a good solution because the next dist-upgrade wanted to remove vlc. So I had to freeze it too.
Now my list of pkg that won't be upgraded is : gstreamer0.10-plugins-good libgstfarsight0.10-0 vlc vlc-nox vlc-plugin-notify vlc-plugin-pulse

LMDE has been completely trouble free for a while now, but yesterday I ran into this which started with 'gecko-mediaplayer' not updating, I don't think it has been mentioned before so here it is:
apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgconf2-4 : Depends: gconf2-common (>= 2.32) but 2.28.1-6 is installed
Incidentally you might be interested in the output of apt-get -f install:
apt-get -f install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
python-opengl guile-1.6 gnuchess-book gnome-games-extra-data wvdial
libgoffice-0.8-8-common tcptraceroute libwvstreams4.6-base bison libots0

Slightly OT: I noticed I had some weird dependency and breakage problems from using a mirror other than ftp.debian.org. Not sure if this was just a weird blip, or something that can happen?

(Ex. cheese package not available. odd!)

Code: Select all

stmiller@brahms:~$ cheese
The program 'cheese' is currently not installed.  To run 'cheese' please ask your administrator to install the package 'cheese'
cheese: command not found
stmiller@brahms:~$ sudo apt-get install cheese
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package cheese is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  cheese-common

E: Package 'cheese' has no installation candidate
After switching back to the main debian.org repo, things are happy.

Code: Select all

eamer0.10-plugins-good (from .../gstreamer0.10-plugins-good_0.10.29-2_amd64.deb) ...

hi viking, welcome back :lol:
and with a though one
Thank you zerozero your information is both timely and effective.

I have no idea how this has happened, but I seem to be several versions ahead of you in both libgconf and gecko-mediaplayer. I forced downgrades of both these packages and now my system is back to normal again. So thank you for those apt policy reports they were invaluable. As you probably know, I do not mess with my sources on LMDE so I just cant understand how I have got in front of everyone else on these package versions :?:

BTW, thank you for my welcome back, but I haven't actually been away, I have just been lurking instead of contributing, it is like that every summer with me, I will be back to torture you again full time in the Autumn :lol: :lol:

Funny viking777, I can see that you use "LMDE, Mint 10, PCLOS". That is exactly what I have installed too. Those are the most performing dists at the moment I think. :D
I am also trying LM11, installed on an USB stick, but it is not as good as LM10 yet. :( Too many Ubuntu bugs.

Well I just noticed that I'm also hit by this missing libcairo 1.10.2 issue. I don't need F-Spot (although it is currently uninstallable), but GIMP (2.7.3 ~git from Frickelplatz sid/main repo, in use due to their packaging of Chromium) now fails to start with an error:

Code: Select all

The Cairo version being used is too old!

GIMP requires Cairo version 1.10.2 or later.
Installed Cairo version is 1.10.0.

Somehow you or your software packager managed
to install GIMP with an older Cairo version.

Please upgrade to Cairo version 1.10.2 or later.
I tried removing the frick^^freaky GIMP v2.7.3, but the regular v2.6 doesn't show up and I still only have the non-debian libcairo2 1.10.0-1ubuntu2 installed/available. What's blocking the Debian Testing libcairo2 1.10.2-6 from showing up? I do see the genuine Debian libcairo2-doc of that updated version.

Can I just use the Package -> Force Version option?


PS. There's a bug filed some two months ago against libcairo2: "LMDE ships with broken libcairo2"

(offtopic mumble... I do appreciate having the Frickel packaged Chromium around, but I'm increasingly worried about the side effects of Frickel's other packages intruding...)
