VideoLAN (vlc) - error

Well, I've been using vlc for some time now and had no problems..  For some strange reason when I try to start it now it gives the following error:

vlc: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libavcodec.so: undefined symbol: faacDecOpen

I'm in fluxbox (0.9.13)

Any ideas?  I've uninstalled (pacman -U vlc) then re-installed (pacman -S vlc) - still the same. 

I tried to build from abs, but it won't complete (I get the following on makepkg):
autopoint: *** cvs program not found
autopoint: *** Stop.
==> ERROR: Build Failed.  Aborting...

The only thing I can think of that's changed is that I've been playing with xPlanet.  I have the earth setup with current cloud/weather overlays as my background w/cron updating the .png every so often. 

Thanks!

Re: VideoLAN (vlc) - error

To fix the build error, I think you have to install cvs -- pacman -S cvs

dusty:~ $ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/libavcodec.so
/usr/lib/libavcodec.so is owned by ffmpeg 0.4.9.pre1-1

That information might help you too, though to be honest I don't know what you could do with it.

VLC works fine for me though, just so you know. My system is up to date.

Re: VideoLAN (vlc) - error

Are you using faad2-devel from unstable? This version breaks with most packages compiled against the stable version.

Re: VideoLAN (vlc) - error

Yep:

#pacman -Q faad2-devel
faad2-devel 2.0.cvs20040915-1

There's no telling what I've installed that loaded it..  ;-)  I normally keep up with my packages very well, but spent the weekend playing around with a number of new packages and let it slip by. 

But... When I try to install faad2 from current (and it tries to remove faad2-devel) I get the following:

error: this will break the following dependencies:
faad2-devel: is required by ffmpeg

Is it OK to force the faad2-devel remove and load of faad2?  What's the best way to clean this up? :-)

Thanks!

Re: VideoLAN (vlc) - error

Use:
pacman -Rd faad2-devel
pacman -S faad2
the -d option skips dependency checks.

Yeah Baby!  big_smile

After moving back to faad2, vlc is back in action.

Thanks for the help!
