I try to do a upgrade on my fedora 6 ill 10. But when I try to write yum update or yum upgrade on my server a get this error:
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up update process
Setting up repositories
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Repository updates is listed more than once in the configuration Determining fastest mirrors YumRepo Error: All mirror URLs are not using ftp, http[s] or file. Eg. 13 is not a valid release or hasnt been released yet/ removing mirrorlist with no valid mirrors: /var/cache/yum/i386/13/base/mirrorlist.txt Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
I am attempting to upgrade Fedora 12 to 13. I get an error screen that said root could not be found. Four options are given. Not sure exactly their wording, but two appear to allow you to cancel the other two warn that if you reinitialize you will wipe out all data.
I have a Vista partition and a Fedora partition. I've added the vista ntfs partition to fstab with no help. All of the partition use the long UUID form. I added the root location (root (hd0,5) to the upgrade menu item in grub.conf and that didn't work either.
I'm reluctant to proceed for fear of initializing the entire drive. I could live with installing Fedora 13 over the existing partitions.
I have done a base install with CD#1 and can boot to a prompt and login with root. I cannot use the network. There is no system-config-network program for me to run. There is also no network-manager in chkconfig --list. There is a network item in chkconfig --list and I have turned it on and rebooted to no effect. Googling for base install has found me virtually no information to go on.
This file (and a couple others) are missing from packman ATM.I've seen them (need version 0.10.30 or greater) at multimedia:/libs.My doubt is, does these gstreamer packages housed at download.opensuse.org are limited due to DCMA/patent issues, like OOTB k3b/libxine are
I recently did my first installation of centos on a vm. I tried playing around for a while but when I tried doing an update it says Determining fastest mirrors for a while then gave me Could not retrieve mirrorlist [url]
i am trying to install the GD2 extension for PHP but i am not sure how to do this. i have try the
yum install php-gd Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://apt.sw.be/dries/fedora/fc4/mirrors-rpmforge error was [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: rpmforge
I have a server running centos 5 located in a datacenter. I am setting it up as a web server but haven't bothered to move the domain from my current registrar to the server as there are a lot of things I need to get done before that. I am having a problem where I couldn't install httpd. So i tried some of the basic fixes i knew as far as yum clean all and checking that my /etc/resolv.conf was ok. I have the two nameservers I am using listed there but I have no hostname set because I simply dont have the domain transferred or anything like that yet. Is that the reason I am having these issues. I installed the system with a network install fine about a month ago so im not sure why I am having problems now.When i try to ping centos.org I get an unknown host www.centos.org error. I tried changing the resolv.conf to have localhost as the hostname and I still have the same issues. I havent made any changes to anything that would potentially cause this.
My etc/resolv.conf looks like this: search nameserver 12.34.567.8 nameserver 12.34.566.8
Also it seems the problem may have got worse after yum clean-all because before that when I would try 'yum install httpd' it would show the files and filesizes and ask to install, when I would select yes It would give an error showing it could not find the fastestmirror. Now it doesn't give any file size or files or an option to approve the install. It just responds with an error saying it could not retrieve mirrorlist <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution' Error Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
I am using the Ubuntu 7.10 Livecd with some modifications I did, and I wanted to update the base-system to the most recent release of Ubuntu. Once I have chrooted into the custom ISO's root filesystem do I use:
Code: apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get dist-upgrade or
Code: aptitude update aptitude upgrade or neither?

Well the topic name says it all. I only installed the base system and when I try "apt-get install gnome" it tells me it can't find package "gnome".Now, I'm actually to much of a noob to try to build my own Debian from the base system and up. But it still seems to be the easiest option.When I try "Debian GNU/Linux on CDs" I can't get online. I start Iceweasl but it just gives me that message telling me that it can't find the website I tried to enter (e.g www.google.com).When I try the net install I get "Bad Archive Mirror" at the configure apt part. I've tried searching your forums for this and it seems to happen to a lot of people but I still can't find a solution in any of those threads
I'm having problems mounting an Edirol R-09HR digital audio recorder (as a USB drive, to read the recording files) on a system running openSUSE 11.2. fdisk or other partitioning tools recognize the device as a "W95 FAT32" drive with a filesystem code of 0b, apparently. I was under the impression that mounting this as a vfat file system should work, but the mount command dies complaining "FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors" and "VFS: Can't find a valid FAT file system." This happens even with a freshly formatted card in the recorder. The device mounts properly with Windows XP systems and late-model Ubuntu/Kubuntu systems, Any clews as to what I'm doing wrong here?
I have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?
I'm trying to design an inexpensive large scale DNS server but fail to find any metrics or methods to base scalabilty.Can anyone offer information on building a stable dedicated DNS server? That might be able to scale well.
I want to upgrade to Meerkat from Lucid but am unable to find the upgrade in my Package Manager.I have been receiving and installing regular updates recently so I don't think there is any problem with receiving notice of updates other than the Meerkat update.Did notice that my packages have not been updated in 46 days.how to update the packages if it is.
I wanted to Upgrade from Fedora 13 to 14 and downloaded the Upgrade Image using the Pre_Upgrade Installer. My system downloads the upgrade just fine but when it starts to perform the it asks for the location of the new Fedora 14 ISO and I have no idea where that is or what to enter as a possible location which I have no doubt is in the default area.
I am trying to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 using "Preupgrade" but it fails in the last part and tells me that the system cannot find the previous system (fedora 12). I have tried to do the upgrade several times and always the error is the same.
