    Default Apps That Would Not Install

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for an answer to a problem with N900 applications. I have a problem with several of these that would not install due to missing files/components. One of these is “Extra Decoder Support” for playing video files. It is missing a “gstreamer0.10-plugins” Does anybody know what is wrong with decoder? Is there a fix for this? Or perhaps I have to have “Devel” enabled in order to install it? Righ now there are some video formats that can not be played on 900 and I am hoping extra decoder might help. It would be nice to be able to play these without having to convert to a different codec. Thanks for the answer in advance.

    I think you need to install gstreamer0.10-plugins before you can install the Extra Decoder Support

    I should also add Devel extras repo.

    I forgot which repo the "Extra Decoder Support” or “gstreamer0.10-plugins” are in.
    But in such a case always enable all repo's and install.
    As with any Linux distro if a 'dependency' is missing it will look in all available repo's to try and find the missing files.

    To save rootfs space, disable all repo's you do not need, just the updates repo would be enough.
    Extras-devil is already 18MB ! (out of your 228 available).
