What is wrong with Livna?

For the past three days, when I run smart, I've had recommendations to
roll back several updates of packages that I originally installed from
Livna. I have a stop-gap in place, which is to ratchet up the priority
of my installed-base to be equal to those of Livna, Core, and
Released-Updates. That lets me take the genuine updates without those
alarming rollbacks (and in three cases, complete removals).

Two days ago, Livna was in even worse shape, and smart was recommending
/more than two hundred downgrades/ as a result.

At least I have the packages I need, in their still-current versions.

The downgrade recommendations, furthermore, are all to repos for which I
set the priority as lower than that for Livna/Updates/Core.

This problem will only go away when the Livna repo maintainers rebuild
their metadata, or perhaps replace certain versions of multimedia and
other utilities.

VideoLAN Client, Mplayer (and its gui), and ffmpeg are but three of the
apps/utilities that this problem affects.


why don't you try to post it in the livna mailing list?

I can't seem to find it, nor any way to create a new account.

The "ffmpeg" rebuild project is noted. That seems to be at the heart of the current issues.
