I tried to upgrade picard package (from 1.3.2-55.1 to 1.3.2-59.1)
from packman multimedia repository
<http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_13.2/> but zypper complained
about missing *python-discid* library:

# zypper up picard
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: nothing provides python-discid needed by picard-1.3.2-59.1.x86_64
 Solution 1: do not install picard-1.3.2-59.1.x86_64
 Solution 2: break picard-1.3.2-59.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its

I attached my /etc/os-release and a dump of 'zypper lr -d'.

After some research I found the missing python-discid
OpenSuSE /devel:/languages:/python

I suppose that only a few picard user are also python
developers so, probably, this dependency will trouble many.

Thank you for your work,

LLaP, Andrea
