Xpra: Ticket #2106: Xpra installation error in CentOS6

I am trying to install xpra in centos6, however it is returning this error:

# yum install xpra
---> Package lz4.x86_64 0:1.8.0-1.el6_9 will be installed

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

The spacewalk repository is "linked" with http://xpra.org/dists/CentOS/6/x86_64/ Any ideas? Regards.

Please try again, centos 6.10 came out after xpra 1.0.12 so a rebuild was needed. Now that xpra 1.0.13 is out, the problem should not occur.

Note: there are no el6_9 tags in any of the centos 6.10 packages. If you are installing and not updating, then maybe you need to force a repository refresh: yum clean all will do the trick.

Please close the ticket if that works for you.

Hi Martin,

I updated my host 6_10. Installing:

yum install xpra fail. Error:

I think that the package ffmpeg-xpra-4.1-2.el6_10.x86_64 asks for libx264.so.148 ... but it depends on the package x264-xpra whose version that is tied as dependency has in it the version libx264.so.155 of lib. So, the error in the installation.

I've rebuilt ffmpeg-xpra against the correct version of x264-xpra, try:

yum clean all
yum install xpra

Wed, 16 Jan 2019 14:16:44 GMT - Wilhelm de Araujo Rodrigues: version changed

I removed all packages from xpra and installed the following specific versions of the following packages:

yum remove xorg-x11-drv-dummy-0.3.8-1.xpra1.el6_10.x86_64 xpra-common-1.0.12-2.r19800.el6_9.noarch python2-rencode-1.0.6-1.xpra1.el6_10.x86_64 x264-xpra-20170704-1.el6_8.x86_64 python2-pyopengl-3.1.1a1-10xpra1.el6_10.x86_64 libvpx-xpra-1.7.0-1.el6_10.x86_64
yum --setopt=obsoletes=0 install -y x264-xpra-20170704-1.el6_8.x86_64 ; yum --setopt=obsoletes=0 install -y xpra-1.0.12-1.r19858.el6_10.x86_64

This works for xpra-1.0.12.

When trying to update to version xpra-1.0.13, dependency chain is broken like kleber said. Update asks for libx264.so.148, which is not available, because the update installs x264-xpra-20190109-1.el6_8.x86_64, who has libx264.so.155.

x264-xpra-20190109-1.el6_8.x86_64 : x264 library for xpra
Repo        : xpra-el6-x86_64
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/xpra/libx264.so.155

It's ok now.
