Fedora Installation :: Updates After Install And Repo Lists / Saying Repo Not Found?
Mar 26, 2011
i'm attempting to know and understand fedora more and i will spend probably the next month pouring through all the forums and documents to answer more of my own questions. but there's quite a bit here, so i'd thought i'd ask some noob questions to get me started a little.
ive installed fedora 14 64bit and chosen only kde as the desktop. i selected an extra 2 repos besides the default, fedora 14 -x86_64 and fedora 14-x86_64 -updates. i believe this kernel is installed: 188.8.131.52-83
1. i can only see the 2 extra repo's as being "checked" in kpackagekit, shouldn't i see the default repo also ?
2. i dont have an applet in the system tray indicating the system is up to date, does fedora have this by default ? also after a clean install i ran yum check-update and yum update but the message sayes: "no packages marked for update". i'm not sure if the system is auto-updated during install or not, but with other distros iv tried there is always atleast a few updates needing to be done after install.
3. is kpackagekit the fedora gui package manager ? i dont see any others.
4. i want to upgrade to nvidia drivers, but i think i am missing a non-free repo or something. when i enter: yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 i get messages stating "no package" i get the same message with yum install nvidia-settings.i also tried this: LANG=C yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree info akmod-nvidia but it sayes repo not found.
I am using Fedora 13 and I have one program (wine) that I need to start grabbing for the updates-testing repo instead of the default repositories in order to get newer versions. I think I can figure out how to add that repository, but I need to know if there are any others I need to disable or any other changes I need to make to my system so that I don't confuse my set up with conflicting updates.
Also, is there anything special I need to do to be sure that only that one program is grabbed from the testing repo when I run regular updates?
I have been trying now for 3 days to install Fedora 15 on my computer. I have Windows 7 installed and have created a free partition for this install. When I am installing I get to the repository selection part and I get only 3 options (Fedora 15, Fedora 15 Testing, Fedora 15 Updates), by default the Fedora 15 and Fedora 15 Updates are selected. There is no option for DVD Repository and if I click add repository and select DVD it says no repository found. Furthermore, if I proceed with the 2 default repositories checked off it takes about 8 hours to download everything online and then towards the end it says it couldn't retrieve a file and exit installation. How to use the DVD to get all the packages so that my install doesn't keep taking 8 hours to fail?
This is the 64bit version I am trying to install, system specs: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz 16.0 GB Ram ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series 1 TB Harddrive The original DVD I got from the direct download. I also downloaded via torrent to see if that worked and got the same results.
The repository [URL] is not currently (or no longer) valid. The path still exists up to the "Contrib" level, however, there are no files or subdirectories under it. There are also two siblings at the "Contrib" directory level ("Live" and "Update:") and there are no files under them either other than a single subdirectory called "Test" under "Update:". Does anyone know if the updates that used to be available in this repository have moved and, if so, where to? If the repository is no longer required and there is no replacement, I'll simply remove it. I have also noticed issues for several months where the updater applet will go into an "updating" state and never return from it.
Now the issue is about the openSUSE 11.4 Updates repo (priority 99). It shows newer packages version than the KR46 repos for some packages, therefore I'm not sure if I have to push Updates repo up in priorities or just forget its update messages an keep the KDE repos as first source.
I need to installing updates on fedora in my computer.

I just learned that warsow 0.6 is out, and went to see if it was available in the ubuntu software center yet, as opposed to going and downloading and installing it manually from the warsow website. The ubuntu repo's still have version 0.5, and at the bottom of the page it says:
"Updates: Canonical does not provide updates for Warsow. Some updates may be provided by the Ubuntu community."
So if I wanted to 'update' this item in the repo's for the better of the community what would that entail?
Zypper ref stalls: Repository 'Apps Update' is up to date. Repository 'Extra' is up to date. 1Repository 'KDE 4.4.4 packages (openSUSE_11.2)' is up to date. 1Repository 'QT' is up to date. 2File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium [URL]... And YAST: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium [URL]... Has the repo been moved?
I have successfully installed fedora 10 and have rpmfusion in my /home/ directory. i don't know how to edit yum.conf to make yum install from this local repo. i tried once. But when i tried to install vlc i got an error saying some lib****** files are missing and missing dependencies.
YaST-->Software-->Online Update Getting error: There was an error in the repository initialization. 'repo-non-oss': Failed to cache repo (139). History: - repo2solv.sh "/var/cache/zypp/raw/repo-non-oss" > "/var/cache/zypp/solv/repo-non-oss/solv"
Output of zypper lr:

If I disable the repo-non-oss repository the update works fine. The URL I have for the repo-non-oss repository is:
Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss
This has been going on for over a week. Do I need to use a different URL for the non-oss repository? I live in New York, United States.
I just walked into a system that has a yum repository with both the 64-bit and 32-bit RPM's all in the same directory. I've never seen this before so it seems very wrong to me. Is this a problem or should it be ok?
The following packages have no delta rpms in 11.2: acroread - Adobe Reader ,java-1_6_0-sun, java-1_6_0-sun-plugin, Opera Web Browser, flash-player A quick check on 11.0 and 11.1 update repos shows that there are delta rpms for latest acrobat reader, sun java and opera updates. Is this a new Novell/openSUSE policy and has there been an anouncement made to inform users.
I wasn't paying proper attention when adding a repo to yast and need to find the file were the info is saved to delete this. The problem is that whenever i use yast it comes up with an error code saying that it can't find the data for the 'problem' repo. Have tried zypper rm but that comes up with a similar error advising that the data is in a format that was not expected. My thinking is to track the file were the yast repo source details are saved, delete this and then just add the repos that i use back.
I know I have seen instructions for this before but I can't find them searching.I have a fresh install of Fedora 13x86_64 and need to temporarily enable 32 bit testing repositories so I can grab 32 bit Wine and Firefox (need flash to work in FF). Can someone please tell me how to add these?
Earlier I have no problems when I install opensuse. After installation the network runs and I can run online updating in yast for the system. But since a few version it doesn't work after installation and I don't know why. I think maybe the errors could happen because I have no internet connection. Today I install 11.4 and get this message when I want to run online updates in yast.
There is an error in the repository initialization 'repo-update' [URL] [repo-update URL] Repository is not cached I think this problem stars with 11.1 or 11.2.
I just installed the repo for Go-OO (an OpenOffice derivative). Apparently I didn't go about installing the actual Go-OO program from the repo correctly (i.e., I missed something crucial to actually run it), so I went ahead and reinstalled Open Office proper until I figure out exactly what I'm doing. (N.B: I'm still quite new to Linux and yum.)
Is there a way I can list yum installs strictly by their repository? That is, is there a command I could use to simply list every install that came from the "GoOo" repo? I'm aware that yum list installed returns repo info, but I'd rather be able to list by one repo at a time because (a) I want to very thoroughly clear off everything from the GoOo repo, and (b) it would definitely make it easier in the event that I have to perform any blanket removes in the future.I'm unable to find any single or short string of commands that does this, so I'm guessing either the answer is no or I'm overlooking something ridiculously simple.
I'm using a system which is based around 9.04 and yes I know this is not the latest and greatest however the softwares in question hasn't been confirmed on the newest version of ubuntu. However I was doing a new build and noticed when I went to do and apt-get install there didn't appear to be any repo's I'm just wondering have the repo's for 9.04 been turned off??
I recently upgraded successfully from F8 to F10 with no problems. I have a question about repo compatabilities. The livna repo is still enabled after the upgrade. Is is compatable with the rpmfusion and fedora repos? should I disable the livna repo? will this cause any problems?
I installed VirtualBox (and the virtualbox repo) a few months ago and it works brilliantly. The other day it informed me there was an update available. I downloaded: VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.2_56127_fedora11-1.x86_64.rpm from [URL]
Why doesn't yum update find these new versions of VirtualBox? Is the original repo file out of date? Here it is:
I just had to do a reinstall of 11.3 when plasma refused to run. Now I'm noticing that applications are missing from (pacman) repo, but when I browse the repo with firefox, the rpms are there, they're just not being found by a yast search... Both mplayer and kdelnive are not found by yast. There are probably others...
FYI - Bug Team: I have had this issue all day today:
PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dmitry_serpokryl:/Enlightenment-cvs-core-metapackage/openSUSE_11.2/'
