Subject: ffmpeg: missing library link
Package: ffmpeg
Version: 5:0.5.1+svn20100512-0.1
Severity: important

(Maybe this should be filed against libva1. I don't know.)

When trying:
$ ffmpeg -i neverGonnaGiveYouUp.ogg
I get:
ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

$ ldd /usr/bin/ffmpeg
... => not found

$ apt-file search /usr/lib/
libva1: /usr/lib/
libva1: /usr/lib/

To be able to use ffmpeg, I made a symlink to one of the above.
# ln -s /usr/lib/   /usr/lib/
Now it works again.

$ dpkg -l  | grep libva1
