Summary: PackageKit: gstreamer codec installer randomly fails.
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.4
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME
AssignedTo: bnc-team-gnome@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: dimstar@xxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---


We now have all the logic in Factory to automatically provide codec
installation via PackageKit, which rocks.

unfortunately, pk-gstreamer-install seems to have some issues, if no other PK
actions have been performed shortly before.

A small transcript from a shell session:

dle3ams@3120-3560:~> /usr/lib/pk-gstreamer-install "gstreamer|0.10|bash|MP3
Codec|decoder-audio/mpeg,mpegversion=1,layer=3"
** Message: PackageKit: xid = 0
** Message: PackageKit: Codec nice name: MP3 Codec
** Message: PackageKit: field is: mpegversion, type: gint
** Message: PackageKit: field is: layer, type: gint
** Message: PackageKit: structure:
gstreamer0.10(decoder-audio/mpeg)(mpegversion=1)(layer=3)()(64bit)
** Message: PackageKit: Did not install codec: failed to find codec
dle3ams@3120-3560:~> gpk-install-package-name zypper
dle3ams@3120-3560:~> /usr/lib/pk-gstreamer-install "gstreamer|0.10|bash|MP3
Codec|decoder-audio/mpeg,mpegversion=1,layer=3"
** Message: PackageKit: xid = 0
** Message: PackageKit: Codec nice name: MP3 Codec
** Message: PackageKit: field is: mpegversion, type: gint
** Message: PackageKit: field is: layer, type: gint
** Message: PackageKit: structure:
gstreamer0.10(decoder-audio/mpeg)(mpegversion=1)(layer=3)()(64bit)
** Message: PackageKit: Did not install codec: did not agree to download
No further actions were done like adding repos or the like.

As can be seen: the first call to install the codec fails with 'failed to find
codec'. After executing any install action using pk-install-package-name
(tested with zypper, which is already there) and right again using
pk-gstreamer-install, the codec is suggested to be installed.
