Missing Dependency: libFLAC.so.4 is needed by package libsndfile

by jagbir on June 18, 2008

In mood to listen some music on my CentOS 5 system, I found that mplayer is not installed.
I’ve followed instructions from http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS
but stuck with error:

Error: Missing Dependency: libFLAC.so.4 is needed by package libsndfile

I have then forcebly removed following:

$ rpm -e --nodeps flac-1.1.2-27

and installed:

$ wget ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/dag/redhat/el3/en/i386/dag/RPMS/flac-1.1.0-4.rhel3.dag.i386.rpm
 $ rpm -ivh flac-1.1.0-4.rhel3.dag.i386.rpm

This resolved the error and system is now happily playing music.
