EL7: No package xvidcore available

Reported by: Alan Schmidt Owned by: Alan Schmidt
Priority: major Milestone: 1.0
Component: packaging Version: trunk
Keywords: el7, xvidcore Cc:


A "yum update" is failing to update xpra-0.16.3 to xpra-0.17.0 on my CentOS 7 machine (it succeeds elsewhere).

The error is:

No package xvidcore available.

rpmfind.net believes the last pre-packaged version of xvidcore was made available by atrpms.net, which has been dead for about a year and a half.

I'm not putting my eyes on the correct third-party repository to enable to make this installation go through. I have tried epel, rpmforge, and remi.

I believe this may be a packaging error.

I believe this may be a packaging error.

I believe you're right - sorry about that, the xvid package was used for building but never pushed to the stable repo.. it worked for me because I had installed the beta, which included it already.

I've pushed it now and rebuilt the repository, you may need to clean the cache first, but the next update should pick it up.

@aschmidt: please close if this works for you.
