[opensuse-factory] DirectFB compat package

For those running FACTORY on a machine having installed a particular
M(edia)Player from packman, there is a problem since the 10.2 version
there needs DirectFB < 1.2.9, but FACTORY now has 1.2.9

So to fix that, you can install DirectFB-compat-120 (i named it after
the library version) from

Note that I had to

rpm -e --nodeps DirectFB
rpm -hiv DirectFB-compat-120.*.rpm

(probably because of not-perfect provides/obsoletes/whatever), but you
hopefully only will need to do this once in this FACTORY cycle.

Then I could do

zypper up

and get everything that did not get installed before (DirectFB-1.2.9,
splashy, ....) because it would have broken MPlayer.

Hope that helps someone.

Oh - and I do *not* recommend anyone to add home:seife:testing as a
regular repository ;)

Have fun,


Stefan Seyfried
