Feature #310472, revision 5
Title: Make automatic installation of gstreamer codecs work

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Vincent Untz (vuntz)
Developer: Dominique Leuenberger (dimstar)

PackageKit has some magic to install codecs when needed. However, this
requires some Provides in the rpm containing the codecs. We need to add
a script that will create those provides and change rpm to call that
script if it exists.

#1: Dominique Leuenberger (dimstar) (2010-09-02 16:33:34)
1) rpm needs a patch to look for a gstreamer-provides script
2) gstreamer should be extended with a gstreamer-provides script.
for 1, I just submitted the 'fix' to Base System (SR#47013)
For 2 I had contact with Fedora who implemented this already and have
working packages in home:dimstar:branches:multimedia:libs

+ #2: Dominique Leuenberger (dimstar) (2010-09-09 14:44:17) (reply to
+ #1)
+ patched rpm has landed in Factory.
+ gstreamer-0_10 is submitted / pending.
