    Exclamation Multimedia HOWTO Help

    Hi!

    Just caught hold of the Ubuntu Multimedia HOWTO and ... thanks!

    But I am stuck now!

    I am at the step $ sudo apt-get install x-window-system-dev! and have run into probs!

    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:
    x-window-system-dev: Depends: libxrandr-dev but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages

    Re: Multimedia HOWTO Help

    Are all of your repos enabled? I don't think you need Universe, but I may be wrong about that.

    Re: Multimedia HOWTO Help

    The Marillat repo no longer has a functional MPlayer, but I do have some of the .debs from when it did work. If you want, I can try and send them to you via email, but I don't know if I'll be able to since they are rather large files.

    PM me or send me an email @ adam, dot, m, dot baker (at) gmail dotcom if you're interested.

    Re: Multimedia HOWTO Help

    Does
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install x-dev
    work?

    Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list here?

    Does
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    correct the problem?

    What
    Code:
    apt-cache policy libxrandr-dev
    returns?
