I love sparky a lot. It's got openbox which i love for its simple looks and low resource. Thought I do like to watch a movie on my computer and so i install pipelight. Recently i installed Sparky 4.0 Openbox, advertised as no codecs. This would be great if it were completely true. Let me explain. I have noticed that pipelight has stopped working with Sparky. Help from the freenode chat with pipelight help has made it clear that multimedia codecs from the deb-multimedia.org repository are not compatible with multiarch and pipelight. Fair enough, but on a new system that cam mean uninstalling a lot of your desktop. So i propose that from now on, all files from that repo (deb-multimedia.org) not be used to ensure compatibility with with multiarch and programs that require the use of mulriarch compatible media drivers. Also, i think it would be firring to move that repo into sources.list.d directory for people to activate later if they wish, like the many others there. Now back to the files i deleted from openbox 4.0. They weren't many and maybe they weren't from the deb-multimedia.org repo but i disabled the repo for my use just the same. Here are the files I had to delete to install pipelight: libasound2-plugins libavcodec56 libavresample2 libavutil54 libswresample1 pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-x11. Small list to be sure but if you had a system loaded with codecs from deb-multimedia.org uninstalling those could have caused lots of other things to uninstall as well. Food for thought to the powers that be.
