I tried to install Ardour form the Multimedia project repo on OBS. It

Can't set it back now to see what is missing exactly. If I recall it
had something to do with Raptor. Thought it was odd that a critical
dependency would be unresolvable, so figured it wasn't critical.
Following is what it coughed up on the CLI.

Is there something I'm missing in resolving this, or is it a packaging
problem? BTW, If I recall this was the same issue with 12.1.

Hi Roger,

This is what generally happens when you ignore missing dependencies. It
"breaks" your system (or makes the installed libraries and packages

Here's what I'd do... in a terminal, as user:

rpm -qa --last | less

Make note of any packages that Ardour pulled in when you installed it.

su to root, and:

rpm -e ardour <space separated list of other packages pulled in>

This will / should restore the system to it's consistent state.

You can then proceed with attempting to install Ardour again, making
note this time of the missing dependencies so you can hunt them down to

hth & regards,

I checked and ardour pulled in nothing extra.
