pidgin dependencies missing + solution.

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

pidgin dependencies missing + solution.

Post#1 by edge226 » 01 Mar 2012, 10:05

pidgin required dependencies that are not correctly linked.

pidgin: error while loading shared libraries: libgstreamer-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Fixed by installing gstreamer-0.10.32 package.

pidgin: error while loading shared libraries: libgstinterfaces-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Fixed by installing gst-plugins-base-0.10.32

Run this command as root.

Code: Select all

slackyd -u && slackyd -d -f pidgin && installpkg /var/slacky/*.txz

Running it through the Porteus Package Manager should resolve all dependencies, and create modules for you.

should being the key word and did not being the reality, I've had a few things not resolved the dependencies. Could Multilib being enabled be confusing ppm?

Looks like booting into true 64 bit I am getting no more problems from ppm resolving dependencies. Looks to be confirmed that it is in fact a multilib issue.
