I want to install GTK+. I see there are also numerous dependencies, which i've been slowly tackling, and the Cairo package has been particularly difficult. It claims the following upon ./configure --prefix=/usr configure: WARNING: Could not find libpng in the pkg-config search path checking whether cairo's PNG backend could be enabled... no configure: error: requested PNG backend could not be enabled I've done some searching and found that libpng.pc is in my /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ directory and that the following commands don't do the trick:
In Fedora 10 evolution 2.24.5 is installed. I have downloaded and extracted evolution-2.30.1 to my home folder. Evolution still shows 2.24.5 not 2.30.1. How do I update 2.24.5 to 2.30.1? Do I just commamd install 2.30.1, and if so, how?
I got a problem while updating KDE from 4.1.2 to 4.2. In our college we can't download more than 20MB officially. So I'm unable to get kdegames which is 32MB from Konsole so I downlaoded it using proxy and I copied it into the /var/cache/yum/updates/packages/ folder and now using this command (yum groupinstall 'KDE (K Desktop Environment)').
I tried to update to KDE 4.2 using Konsole but it is showing: Error Downloading Packages: 6:kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386: failure: kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
And even by double-clicking the KDEgames rpm file I'm unable to install it is saying GPG (I'm not sure GPG or not, start with G i think) Key missing so it is taking too much time and not doing anything.
for some reason my first updating was interrupted and from then i cannot update. i get the following message:
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db3 error(-30974) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - (-30974) error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm CRITICAL:yum.main: Error: rpmdb open failed [root@laptop etc]# yum repolist [Code]....
I had configured the evolution to send/recive email. After it had been configured, it could receive emails. Suddendly it can't fetch email anymore. In the inbox of evolution, there were about 200 emails. There are maybe 5K emails in the server, I guessed. I'm not sure whether it's the problem that there's one email in the server too big, so the evolution can not fetch it. The error of evolution is: error while fetching email. Evolution version: Evolution 2.28.0. OS version: Linux xxx220.127.116.11-70.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Wed Mar 3 04:57:21 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux I'm sure my network is fine, I use pop3 to receive email.

From the GUI, software update gives the error "Failed to Initialize - Failed to initialize the packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously." In the more details, "There are unfinished transactions remaining.
I run a terminal, switch to root and do as it tells me. It returns saying that there are no unfinished transactions. I've run it several times with the same result. Then I run "yum clean all" and "yum upgrade." The upgrade processes runs and reports "there are unfinished transactions..." However, the upgrade process still completes. Basically it is now a severe annoyance, but the system does seem to upgrade. I just cannot figure out why there are somehow unfinished transactions that I cannot get rid of. I tried reinitializing the rpm database - no luck. How can I somehow reset yum?
I've recently upgraded to 10.04. I'm trying to import my evolution data using the following instructions. Everything seems to work ok, but when I start evolution up, it continues to act as a new installation. What do I do?
You have an Evolution installation in one home directory and you want to duplicate that configuration in a new home directory. This may involve moving your data from one computer to another. Keywords: migration, user data, new partition, new computer, new home directory
1. Completely shut down Evolution on the old machine/home directory: 1. evolution --force-shutdown 2. If you've used Evolution on the new computer/home directory, remove its config files: 1. evolution --force-shutdown
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
I have just installed Fedora on my laptop. I tried to install the updates but there is something wrong:

I was trying to install tomcat using yum. Is there any way i can install tomcat other than yum utility. I downloaded he zip folder for tomcat which i downloaded from apace tomcat site.
just installed a fresh copy of fedora 12 and getting this error when trying to update the system.

Running System>Adminstration>Software Udates, I get the following errors
Similarly, if I click on System>Add/Remove Software>Package Collections, I get No groups could be found. A cache refresh should fix this. I don't see how to do a cache refresh. I tried rpm --rebuilddb, which didn't do any good and um clean all which also did no good. I did manage to do the updates with yum updates But I don't want to have to use yum at the command line all the time to do updates.
When I send mail via Evoultion it does seem to send ok but still the following error message comes up: Error while sending message. Failed to append to : Unknown error Appending to local 'Sent' folder instead. Not sure what's up with that but thought I would mention it.
I have been trying to update my server from 6.06 server to 10.04 server. My attempts have been complicated by versions later than 6.06 not being able to properly read my CD-ROM. I used the 'do-release-upgrade' mechanism to upgrade to from 6.06 to 8.04 and then to 10.04. 8.04 loaded OK, but 10.04 fails to boot with the surprisingly common "Gave up waiting for root device" error. It stops at the built-in shell prompt. If I exit from the shell, it seems to boot up normally.
I have verified that the boot partition is /dev/sda1 and the UUID for the partition is correct. My system is an older IBM eServer xSeries 350 with quad 700MHz XEON processors and a 36GB SCSI drive. This system properly installed from the 6.06 CD and boots under this version without problems. So I have some questions. Only the first one needs an answer.
1. What do I need to do to get my system to boot properly? 2. Why was this software released with this error? 3. Why wasn't the faulty loader pulled from the release until it was fixed? 4. Is it possible to revert to the 6.06 loader, which works fine? 5. Why doesn't the loader attempt to try something else that should work instead of just giving up?

Getting error when updating from update manager and also checking for upgrades in synaptic package manager...The below error is of update manager...However sometimes i dont get this error and update works.
i have using ubuntu 10.10 from past 3 months and about a week before upgraded to 11.04. The upgrade was a successful one and everything was back to normal, was enjoying unity. upgrading disabled most of the ppa's in the source list and later i enabled them and still everything was okay. yesterday suddenly when i clicked on the ubuntu software center it was just showing as if it was still processing the source list but after sometime it started giving me the below error: "E:Type 'rc' is not known on line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/geod-ppa-geod-natty.list"
Using Update Manager this morning, I received the following error message while it was updating Firefox:

I have installed Fedora Core 12 and all seems fine. I have also set up the main repostiories as was suggested on the following fedora set up guide website:[URL]..I have since tried to update my Fedora release with all the updates available, alas I get the following error message:
