Hi,
For the past week or so the updated xine-lib package shows up as an available update, but I can not get this update.

I go through the same phenomenon here. I am using BLAG 70000. Every package is upgraded but xine-lib and xine-lib-extras:
Code:
# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages have been kept back
  xine-lib xine-lib-extras
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 removed and 2 not upgraded.


I do not know either why it is so.

I uninstalled xine-lib-moles, and then the update went through. Not sure what xine-lib-moles does.

When I try to add xine-lib-moles back in, it says I have the wrong version of xine-lib (or something like that).

I don't really use Xine, so I probably wont miss it. Still concerned when there is a little glitch.

When you remove xine-lib-moles, xine is removed as well... and xine-lib-moles is reinstalled if you try to reinstall xine...

This problem is well known (just check how many times you count "xine-lib-moles on this page).

A workaround exists for those who cannot wait for the new package in the repositories.[color=blue]

Thanks for the info. Since I don't use Xine, I will hold off on re-installing it.

I use xine, so I was disappointed to see it disappear after my most recent BLAG 70000 update. I inquired on the Fedora forum (see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=181509) and was only told:

Code:
You will need to delete the freshrpms repo as it is obsolete, then remove all the xine packages and install the Livna repo. Then re-install xine.


Of course I used the BLAG repo and not freshrpms, but what I think is being suggested is that I remove any references to xine and replace them with xine, xine-lib and xine-lib-moles from Livna. I'm not sure I want to do this. I might just content myself to use mplayer where I had previously used xine.

I am switching over the xine in the repo to the livna version and not the freshrpms version.

In the past I "preferred" the freshrpms packages to the livna ones, but from now on I will prefer livna over freshrpms as that appears to be the "approved" trend.

Thanks for tracking this down for me and I'm sorry I didn't do it myself earlier. The time that I have spent in development seems to be getting eaten by kernels.

ok, so now i have a slightly different problem.

Code:
[root@box ~]# rpm -q xine xine-lib xine-lib-moles
xine-0.99.5-1.lvn7
xine-lib-1.1.10.1-1.fc7
package xine-lib-moles is not installed
[root@box ~]#


i don't actually use xine for image watching [why would use anythung but vlc?], but use amarok for audio stuff. amarok uses libamarok_xine-engine v1 fw30:

Code:
[root@box ~]# rpm -q amarok
amarok-1.4.8-1.fc7
[root@box ~]#


tells me that everything i try to play [whether ogg or mp3]:

Code:
Error Loading Media
There is no available decoder.
file:///home/r7/aud/foo.ogg


i'm assuming therefore that xine-lib-moles contains the decoders amarok/xine needs. i therefore do

Code:
[root@box ~]# apt-get install xine-lib-moles
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  xine-lib-moles: Depends: xine-lib (= 1.1.10)
E: Broken packages
[root@box ~]#


as i mention above we have 1.1.10.1, so this seems a little odd...

Maybe same problem here

After:
Code:
May 01 00:36:17 Installed: libxcb.i386 1.1-1.fc7
May 01 00:36:21 Updated: xine-lib.i386 1.1.11.1-1.fc7.1
May 01 00:36:24 Installed: vcdimager.i386 0.7.23-5.fc7
May 01 00:36:24 Installed: xine-lib-extras.i386 1.1.11.1-1.fc7.1
May 01 00:36:26 Updated: xine-lib-moles.i386 1.1.10-1.fc7

no mp3 playback for me ...
(all that was for xine-lib-extras package)

then:
Code:
May 02 13:47:39 Erased: xine-lib-moles


and when trying yum install xine-lib-moles ... broken dependencies ...

things like:
Code:
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps xine-lib
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps xine-lib-moles
...
May 02 14:23:26 Installed: xine-lib.i386 1.1.7-1.fc7
May 02 14:24:03 Installed: xine-lib-moles.i386 1.1.7-1.fc7

didn't help ... still no mp3 playback for me ... tired.

Have you tried using APT to straighten it out? You needs the moles for mp3. I'd erase all the xine and then reinstall it using APT.

so my quest is over here is the story:

after removing all xine-lib and xine-lib-moles and all their dependencies i tried to install
xine-lib 1.1.7 and xine-lib-moles 1.1.7, went well but maybe this rpm (xine-lib) has problem with alsa and then amarok complains "xine unable to initialize audio drivers", nothing against amarok didn't help (deleting of configuration files etc)

after short walk through my directories i found that xine-lib 1.1.11.1-1.fc7.1 installed itself into /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.20, but xine-lib-moles 1.1.10-1.fc7 was in /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.1.10

Code:
$ pwd
/usr/lib/xine/plugins
$ ls
1.1.10  1.20


so my solution for mp3 playback - copy all files from xine-lib-moles directory into xine-lib directory, this way i ended up with:

Code:
$ yum list installed | grep xine
xine-lib.i386                            1.1.11.1-1.fc7.1       installed       
xine-lib-moles.i386                      1.1.10-1.fc7           installed

i believe jebba has mucked around with the sources for the various packages and this particular combination works:

Code:
[root@box ~]# rpm -q xine xine-lib xine-lib-moles
xine-0.99.5-1.lvn7
xine-lib-1.1.11.1-1.fc7.2
xine-lib-moles-1.1.11.1-1.fc7
[root@box ~]#


ta muchly.
