Have you seen the error while installing a package using yum / yumex?
Error: vlc conflicts with faad2 >= 2.5
Error: Missing Dependency: faad2 < 2.5 is needed by package ffmpeg-libs
The error is because of using freshrpms repository or other repository to install recent version of faad2. Now let’s see how you can solve it.
This is a common error when you are trying to install / update vlc or some other video libraries. To solve it follow the steps below:
- Remove faad2 - yum remove faad2
- Re-install faad2 from livna - yum –enablerepo=livna faad2 and any other removed libraries like ffmpeg-libs. Remember not to include freshrpms repository while re-installing. It contains an advanced version of faad2, which is incompatible with most software.
- Now install vlc from livna.
