Description Zeno Davatz 2010-04-06 14:00:58 UTC
When I start mplayer it complains about 

 mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libpulse.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I uninstalled (emerge -C) and reinstalled mplayer. Makes no difference.

oh, you were faster ... I want to mention:

Can you please attach build.log and environment for us to see the version and USE-flag combination you tried. 
If I have to guess, I would say that this libpulse.so.0 should be in media-sound/pulseaudio, do you have it?
Which version do you have? mplayer[pulseaudio] should depend and install media-sound/pulseaudio.
Maybe you wanna check "equery files sound/pulseaudio" or "locate libpulse.so.0"
for it and post the output.

Do you want the buildlog from mplayer?

Comment 5 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-06 16:59:14 UTC
Just to get this right: Pulseaudio was never installed on my system and mplayer  always used to work fine. I normally use mplayer to play .wav files from my audio-Mailbox.
Comment 6 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-06 17:06:34 UTC
Libpulse is here:

~> locate libpulse
/usr/lib/ao/plugins-2/libpulse.la
/usr/lib/ao/plugins-2/libpulse.so

I believe that some library moved and I need to link 

 libpulse.so.0

to some old location. I just do not know which one.
Comment 7 Rafał Mużyło 2010-04-06 17:15:37 UTC
@comment 6: quite obviously, it's not the libpulse in question.
Would you attach that aclocal.out already ?
Comment 8 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-06 17:17:56 UTC
Ok, pulseaudio depends on the latest automake version ... I just updated automake and now pulseaudio compiles as well. ...

I wanted you to report success or failure of running mplayer _after_ you let revdep-rebuild recompile all packages.
Each package in the list is broken and will not run properly, so do yourself a favour and recompile them all.
Comment 12 Rafał Mużyło 2010-04-06 19:51:48 UTC
media-plugins/libao-pulse has been redundant for nearly 3 years
(ever since 0.8.8 release).
If other packages on your system follow that pattern,
this bug is simply INVALID.

Please reopen the bug after revdep-rebuild has finished. :)

Can you please be more articulate? Does that mean that I can purge the package and mplayer should still work?

> If other packages on your system follow that pattern,

What pattern?

> this bug is simply INVALID.

Please don't close a bug without being more explicit.
Comment 15 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-07 06:33:09 UTC
Sorry, but there should be a way to solve this problem without running revdep-rebuild.
Comment 16 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-07 06:46:56 UTC
To which package does 

 ~> equery b libdts
 * Searching for libdts ...

belong? I can not find it. See above. 

Ok, it obviously belongs to the libdca package. But that again only installs

 ~> locate libdts
 /usr/lib/libdts.a
 /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libdts.pc

 

Comment 17 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-07 06:52:12 UTC
As shown above, this has nothing to do with rev-dep rebuild as libca does
not install

 /usr/lib/libdts.so.0

libdca is not even in my list of revdep-rebuild. Also see:

No there isn't. 
Please note that by looking at the partial output of your revdep-rebuild run I think your system is quite screwed and this kind of problems usually doesn't belong into bugzilla but our discussion forums. 
Simply out of curiosity I will give you some help here once again in the hope that you at least _try_ my suggestions.

Do the following steps to get your system in a sane state again.

First run revdep-rebuild just to make sure there are as few packages with broken libs as possible:

  revdep-rebuild -i -- -v --keep-going

the "--keep-going" makes sure that as many stuff compiles as possible.
Then run

  emerge -a --depclean

and let it remove all packages that are either no longer available in the tree (like all the xmms stuff) or are no longer a dependency of any other package.

By the way, if portage complains about installed packages no longer being in the portage-tree you should remove them. Keeping such cruft in tnstalled can lead to such problems you now suffer from.

Finally after having --depclean removing all unnecessary packages you run revdep-rebuild once again:

  revdep-rebuild -i -- -v --keep-going

If revdep-rebuild finds broken libs which it cannot assign to a package just delete such files. But double check that they are orphaned or else you make your system just more broken than it already is.
Report back any packages/libs that still weren't sucessfully built by the last revdep-rebuild command.
Comment 19 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-07 09:06:47 UTC
To start off: My system is not broken. It works perfectly well. Just do not see the sense of running

 revdep-rebuild

as that command have never been of any help and just complicates matters. I am still willing to hear your advice though.

(In reply to comment #18)

>   revdep-rebuild -i -- -v --keep-going

Ok, I know. But this does not help. I wants to recompile to many packages.

I done that.

> the "--keep-going" makes sure that as many stuff compiles as possible.
> Then run
> 
>   emerge -a --depclean

Again, this wants to many things installed and starts with:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Is there a command to remove all broken packages and there dependencies? I.e. I do not use kde or gnome so all those dependencies and packages can be purged and deleted off my machine.

Thank you for the tip. Is there a command to list all packages on my system that are no longer in the portage tree?
Comment 20 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2010-04-07 12:35:29 UTC
Please put the output of

  revdep--rebuild -i -- -pv

and the output of 

  emerge -uDpNv world

and the content of your 

  /var/lib/portage/world 

file into one single file and attach that here to this bug.

Comment 23 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2010-04-07 13:34:28 UTC
Thanks for proving me right. You screwed your Gentoo quite a bit.

For a start, unmerge those packages listed by this command:


for pkg in $(</var/lib/portage/world) ; do emerge -Oqpv ${pkg} ; done | grep -v "\[ebuild"


Then clean your world file from system packages (there's no need to haven them listed there). Make a backup copy of your /var/lib/portage/world file then run the following "script":


for pkg in $(emerge -qpe system | awk '{print $4}' | sed 's:\(^[[:alnum:]\/_-]\+\)-[[:digit:]].*:\1:g') ; do sed "/${pkg//\//\\/}/d" -i /var/lib/portage/world ; done


And then try to do the suggestions I gave you in my previous posts. 


This kind of problems is definitely no topic for a bug tracker. For further assistance please seek help in our forums.

Marking as INVALID again.

This command does not work. I do not receive any output.

Comment 26 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-07 15:56:07 UTC
This solved it all:  

 ~> sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libdca.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libdts.so.0

also see: http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mplayer-users/2007-April/066635.html

I wonder what package broke that during my upgrading.

Are you sure you followed Funtoo's bug reporting instructions from their FAQ?

That doesn't matter one bit.
This "problem" is in fact a PEBCAK.
He is quite happy with breaking his system a step at a time.

libdts -> libdca was one more old upgrade, that a proper cycle of
'emerge -upvD world;revdep-rebuild' should and probably would pick up.
He's not interested in fixing his system, just adding new hacks.

Ok people, this bug has gone far away from its original purpose(a simple bug report). Zeno, thanks for your report(s), you've been a gentoo user for a long time, it seems. But this time, we cannot help you more than Lars did. Your gentoo box seems not well maintained. I would suggest to read again the gentoo handbook (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml) and my personal opinion would be to seriously think to do a fresh gentoo installation, after reading the handbook. I will close the bug, because more "not-so-helpful-anymore" comments, only serve in increasing the size of bugzie's database. Thank you again for your original report(it doesn't matter if it was invalid or not)

It is true, I never do "emerge world" as I do not see that as efficient. There must be another way of dealing with old libraries. Every second input is "do revdep-rebuild" ... I run many Gentoo servers and that has never helped. For the record: I do not like linking old and new libraries either... So the there must be a third way as well.

That's bogus. The symbols are prefixed with 'dca_' in the libdca where as they are prefixed 'dts_' in the (old) libdts.

Only correct way to fix your system is revdep-rebuilding it, those symlinks will screw it even more up

Well good to know. Practice will tell. I am always open for another solution but not revdep-rebuid, as that just does not work.

In pages http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&chap=1 we explain why revdep-rebuild is so important when maintaining a gentoo linux system. What we provide is open-source tools/methods for distributing open-source software. If you're going to use these tools or not, it's of course, your decision, to make. We suggested to you, more than one, "official" solutions, to fix your problems, on an upper level. But nobody pays us to solve bugs, we are volunteers and we spend our free time trying to contribute. I 'm going to lock this bug, cause there is no bug anywhere, and I don't care about revdep-rebuild. I don't want more developers and contributors to spend time making "not-so-helpful" comments in here. I hope you understand.

Unlocked again, after zeno's mail to me. But please, stop continue discussing here, topics that are not for bugzilla. I didn't want to bother you, zeno, I'm sorry if I did.
Comment 35 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-08 08:45:19 UTC
Evcharistopoli.

What is wrong with some feedback of a critical Gentoo user?

I am running "emerge -u world" now on my personal machine. 

But hey: I would never ever do that on a production server as that is the
ultimate death of your production server. So that is the reason why I ask for
another solution as well: i.e. updating your packages individually should
absolutely be possible for an open System like Gentoo.

Also which part of the forums to you suggest, that I start a thread?

Thank you for your Feedback.
Comment 36 Zeno Davatz 2010-04-08 12:43:25 UTC
Just for the record and Google: I believe 

 emerge -u system

would have helped me out with the least hassle, as it does not take as much time as emerge -u world.
