    Mplayer - unmet dependencies

    Hey

    Can't install mplayer/ogle because of "unmet dependencies". Thought with apt-get dependencies were taken care of? Obviously not.

    Code:
    miickee@miickee-gutsy:~$ sudo apt-get install mplayer
    [sudo] password for miickee:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... 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:
      mplayer: Depends: libamrnb3 but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libamrwb3 but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libc6 (>= 2.7) but 2.6.1-1ubuntu10 is to be installed
               Depends: libcaca0 (>= 0.99.beta13b-1) but 0.99.beta11.debian-3 is to be installed
               Depends: libcairo2 (>= 1.6.0) but 1.4.10-1ubuntu4.4 is to be installed
               Depends: libcucul0 (>= 0.99.beta13b-1) but 0.99.beta11.debian-3 is to be installed
               Depends: libfaac0 (>= 1.26) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libfribidi0 (>= 0.10.9) but 0.10.7-4build1 is to be installed
               Depends: libgif4 (>= 4.1.6) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libjack0 (>= 0.109.2) but 0.103.0-6ubuntu1 is to be installed
               Depends: libncurses5 (>= 5.6+20071006-3) but 5.6+20070716-1ubuntu3 is to be installed
               Depends: libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.20.1) but 1.18.3-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
               Depends: libpulse0 (>= 0.9.8) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libx264-57 (>= 1:0.svn20071224) but it is not installable
    E: Broken packages
    I tried installing these dependencies but it would not work. For example
    Code:
    miickee@miickee-gutsy:~$ sudo apt-get install libamrnb3
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done

    Tried using sudo aptitude install mplayer, no use at all.

    Oh, for those who are about to ask what I'm using it's ubuntu 7.10
    Code:
    miickee@miickee-gutsy:~$ uname -a
    Linux miickee-gutsy 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 07:42:25 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
    A prompt and complete reply would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Your trying to install an mplayer package meant for hardy. check your sources for hardy listings
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    Re: Mplayer - unmet dependencies

    I see you have some broken packages, repair with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Next, you want to install ogle. You can install this with Synaptic Package Manager. You may need to enable backports in your software sources first. Synaptic will look after all dependences. The software is quite old (2005). It may be a better bet to get the Xine media player (totem-xine in Synaptic) and then use Quickstart to install codecs.

    Ok, yes I do know what my sources list is. Although exactly what to enter to enable hardy repository listings is somewhat of a mystery to me, please explain.

    Yes I have done this.

    Now what do I do?
    This link will tell you how to add medibuntu from the terminal, also if you go to software sources in system-administration or synaptic you can also add 3rd party urls there and enable other support repositories. Personally I have every one clicked except source code and have never had a problem, but others have very few I suspect. You can also choose a the main repository or choose the one the computer finds to be the fastest for you.
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
    You can also install Mplayer from add remove in applications.

    You could run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then install ogle or xine player as detailed above.
