gqview gwenview and mocp can't all be broke? [Solved]

Postby joe3 » Mon Oct 03, 2011 19:56

I think it was just the beginning of September when I installed Sabayon from the Sabayon_Linux_6_amd64_E17.iso I've got most things working the way I want them now, so I really don't want to reinstall from one of the more mainstream iso's. I went with the Sabayon_Linux_6_amd64_E17.iso because I use only E17 and E16, except in extream desperation when I'll fallback on xfce. The last time I could stand kde was before version 4, and I never could stand gnome. So it seemed wasteful to load more of either of those than is called in by the dependencies of the applications from them that I do use. But I'm thinking that something I need must be missing...

You see I installed Music On Console, only to find that it couldn't even play wav files. But for some reason kaffeine has no trouble playing the same files. Then there's jpeg images. Most of the time I would open them with display (from imagemagick), which worked. But I needed to find one for which I couldn't remember the filename So I navigated to my images directory and started gqview But it represented the *.jpg files with an icon that looked to me like it thought the file was broken. And in anycase it couldn't display it. So I installed qwenview But it didn't seam to be able to display the *.jpg images either...

I'm thinking there must be some libraries and or cdecs missing or something Possibly because I installed from a "spin" iso. Could anybody point me at the most likely packages that may be missing from the spin iso to cause this????

And while you didn't inquire which versions of the image viewers I wasn't able to view my *.jpg files with... Though I may have spoken too soon concerning kde's gwenview. It too didn't work when I first installed it. But unlike gqview I hadn't tried rebooting after the install, And I've since added Konqueror which, I think, may have provided or pulled in something that gwenview needed. In any case, now gwenview works. Though I like gqview better, and it still doesn't... {sigh}

Also make sure you got media-plugins/alsa-plugins installed.

See if building the package from source on your machine using Portage makes any difference:

Code: Select all
# equo install git # Sabayon overlay uses Git, so need to install it.
# emerge --sync # Update the Portage ebuilds on your machine.
# layman -a sabayon # Don't worry if the Sabayon overlay is already added.
# layman -S # Update ebuilds in all added overlays.
# emerge -1v moc # Install moc from source code.
# equo rescue spmsync # Tell Entropy what you did via Portage.
# # Now use eix utility to check status of what you installed:
# equo install eix
# eix-update
# eix -I moc


Also post the output of the last command above so we can see what USE flags were used to build the package.

And in my previous attempts to use Sabayon I had tried to use equo as much as possible (because it was easier to understand) but I used emerge to get some applications that were not {at the time} available in entropy. I wound up with a system that was stuck in dependency hel^Hck. I was unable to upgrade anything. This happend more than once... This time around I promised myself a pure entropy system. I very much like being able to:
Code: Select all
equo update
equo --ask upgrade


But of course You probably qualify as an "advanced user" so I'll trust that the code you specified won't hose my system. Well almost... Please be patient, but before I risk emerge, I need to find enough time to do a full system backup... Might take a few days.

Portage & I never did mix well...

Well that didn't take as long as I thought it would to find the time. {I must want moc worse than I thought...} But anyway since I had enough room on
a usbdrive I did a:

tar -cpzf /mnt/sabaBU/EsabaDesk3.tgz --numeric-owner .

from the mountpoint of my Sabayon partition (using Arch) So I feel like I can risk your emerge suggestion now...

And the sequence is:

equo update
equo upgrade

{test if anything in the upgrade happened to fix moc... No still broke}

equo install git
emerge --sync

{ERROR...}

Portage doesn't like me... 24 tries all had same error...

Code: Select all
>>> Starting retry 24 of 24 with rsync://81.223.20.162/gentoo-portage
timed out
rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(549) [Receiver=3.0.8]
>>> Retrying...
!!! Exhausted addresses for rsync.europe.gentoo.org
