I have a problem with my openSUSE-10.3 and 11.0 PCs (both kde3) with the
latest caca-utils-0.9_0.99.beta15-0.pm.5.i586.rpm and
libcaca0-0.9_0.99.beta15-0.pm.5.i586.rpm from Packman not being
compatible with MPlayer-1.0rc2_r27637-2.pm.1.i586.rpm also packaged by

When trying to play an flv or mpeg file, the error I get is:

    oldcpu at stonehenge01:~/data/musicvideos> mplayer oldcpu-video.mpg
    mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libcucul.so.0: cannot
    open shared object file: No such file or directory

It is a puzzling error message, as I had thought libcucul.so.0 comes
with the libcaca0-0.9_0.99.beta15-0.pm.5.i586.rpm.

On my openSUSE-10.3 PC, I rolled libcaca back to
libcaca0-0.9_0.99.beta14-0.pm.5.i586.rpm and the problem went away, and
I could play mpeg and flv files with no problem.

My 11.0 mplayer is still broken, as I did not keep the older libcaca
version (and hence I could not roll back on 11.0).

Hence I suspect this problem is a libcaca0 problem?

Could you look into this?
