Ticket #22561 (closed defect: fixed)
ffmpeg and mjpegtools dependency conflict
|Reported by:||jash-macports@…||Owned by:||devans@…|
Someone ran into the problem I'm having in #21771. Evidently mjpegtools depends on libsdl_gfx which in turn depends on libsdl but cannot work with the newer libsdl-devel. Their solution was to remove libsdl-devel and use libsdl.
But ffmpeg depends on libsdl-devel. So I have a dependency conflict here. I need both ffmpeg & mjpegtools ports installed simultaneously. I didn't find a FAQ on how to deal with conflicting port dependencies.
I just upgraded to Snow Leopard, did a new install of Xcode tools, deleted all my old ports, and reinstalled from the ground up. I'd be happy to post other details if needed.
