Missing x264 dependency for CentOS 6

Description

I get the following error when trying to yum install xpra on Centos 6.9:

Error: Package: xpra-1.0.12-2.r19800.el6_9.x86_64 (winswitch)
           Requires: libx264.so.148()(64bit)
           Available: x264-xpra-20170704-1.el6_9.x86_64 (winswitch)
               libx264.so.148()(64bit)
           Installing: x264-xpra-20190109-0.el6_9.x86_64 (winswitch)
               Not found
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I tried various ways of installing the lib manually, as discussed on stackexchange: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/509424/yum-wont-resolve-a-lib-dependency-though-it-is-available-installed, but none of them resolved this issue. Seems to be an issue with the packaging itself.

For some reason, the 1.0.13 packages are missing from the centos 6.9 repo.
It is present in 6.10 (aka 6) and 6.8 and earlier.

IIRC, Until I can re-spin those packages (sometime next week) you should be able to install 1.0.13 from the 6.10 repo. (there are no major differences between 6.9 and 6.10 that could cause breakage)

I have successfully installed from the 6.10 repo. Thanks for the quick answer!

I have just posted some rebuilt 1.0.13 packages for centos 6.9.
We'll try to make sure problems like this one never occur again in #2040.

Akcope: you can switch back to the 6.9 repo for installing everything.
