Fedora :: KPackageKit - Failed To Initialize Backend?
Jun 16, 2010
Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.
Code: Failed to initialize Failed to initialize packaging backend This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously. under more details i get:
Code: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root. I get to terminal, and as a root I try yum-complete-transaction, but it just says there are no unfinished transactions left. I tried to update thru yum, but this is what I get:
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 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:
I receive following error when trying to enable strigi. "strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to installation problem" I have searched internet, obviously not good enough, and i have found nothing. Nothing that would work. i have tried installing openjdk-devel as suggested, soprano. And still nothing. I have same problems on both boxes running Fedora 12.
I have a problem updating packages when using the kpackagekit systray notifier, it fails with the error "failed to obtain authentication".I've looked around and can't find any log output of this.If i start kpackagekit from the menu it all works fine, but not this way.This is with kubuntu 10.10, upgraded from 10.04, it did actually work before.
I downloaded the latest version of DirectX and installed it through Wine. It seemed to work, but whenever I try to play Akane's new Death Note game, it says 'Failed to initialize DirectX Audio' and closes the window. How can I fix this problem? I need my fan service!
I am having an issue with KPackageKit, actually 2 issues but one makes it unusable. The major issue is that when I go to apply the updates I get the following error message (at least here are the details of the message)
I do not run my connection through a proxy and my internet works correctly. This is on a laptop I upgraded using zypper from 11.3 to 11.4 (I did the same with a desktop which does not have this issue). zypper refresh successfully refreshes the repositories, and the various Yast repo tools all work correctly. Additionally after I am shown the updates and am prompted for root pw, the packages will no longer show up for a while, each time it tries to look for updates the message comes through but they will show up after a while again. The other issue I have is that it requests my pw multiple times, this also happens on my desktop that actually will update. I get prompted twice, they are immediate and back to back. This one is a little minor annoyance but there should be no reason that it needs to make this request multiple times.
I updated kernel and everything seemed ok, except HD-PVR is locking up and recording only two minutes of every show it records. So, I have gone back to my previous kernel, but it seems that X isn't starting:
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 195.36.31 Thu Jun 3 08:27:29 PDT 2010 (II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
Fatal server error:no screens found I had done a yum install kmod-nvidia for the newer kernel. I am thinking I need to get the kmod for the current kernel again (22.214.171.124-115.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 19:46:25 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux), but am not sure how that is done?
Everytime I log into Gnome Desktop I get this message : failed to initialize a HAL contextHere is the exact error message when I look into auth.logQuote:gnome-keyring-daemon: failed to initialize a HAL context: (null)gnome-keyring-daemon: Scheduling hal init retry
I just finnished my slackware upgrade to current (as you may know from my previous post), and now i am facing another problem.When i type startx i get error:Failed to initialize the GLX module,...,try reinstalling the NVidia driverno screens foundOkay, i thought i should reinstall the Nvidia drivers..And then when i ran the driver install file, i got another error:Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'....Kernel module load errorWhat should i do now ? Nothing works! New kernel
When I try to upgrade, I always get this message: "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64_2.6.32-35_i386.deb: failed in write on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/s2io.ko'"
I have 2 NVIDIA card intalled - GT 240 and Geforce 9500.After updating by repo kernel to ver 126.96.36.199-0.5.1 and Nvidia driver by to ver 270.41.06 X server cant start

So for now only dismounting one of cards gives working X server.
I installed Blueman & paired my headset successfully but I get this error message when I connect my headset, "Failed to initialize pulseaudio bluetooth module. Bluetooth audio over pulseaudio will not work". When I go to Pulse Audio Volume Control, it's not showing in my hardware list.
im using a toshiba satellite u305-s2804 laptop with windows 7 installed it has 2gb ram .intel centrino dual core processor,160 gb hd ., what i wanna do is dual boot between windows and opensuse 11.3 which i downloaded today . i went ahead and set up a partion for the linux to be installed on (the space i gave linux is 25 gb) . but during the installation i got this error
failed to initialize the software repositories .aborting the instillation.
Every time I start up my Ubuntu 10.04 install, instead of the graphical login screen, I get an error dialog stating the following:
Code: Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this. Also in the dialog are several lines of text:
Code: (EE) <date and time> Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details. ***Aborting*** Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.I'm not sure what it means by "kernel log," or where any error logs might be saved. Any tips? Perhaps if I can find such error logs, posting them will help diagnose the problem.
If it matters, I have 2 monitors, an NEC AccuSync 120 CRT and a Samsung BX2440X LCD. I use them in Xinerama mode with the Nvidia drivers under my Ubuntu 9.10 install and have no problems there. To get normal graphics under 10.04, I have to start up in low-graphics mode, kill X server, reinstall the Nvidia proprietary drivers, and restart the X server. Then I have to do it all over again after the next restart, every time I want to run 10.04.It's very annoying.Also possibly relevant: I use the latest 32-bit Nvidia drivers for 10.04, version 256.53.I've found a few other threads where people had problems similar to this, but nothing exactly like my situation nor any real resolution so far. I hope it can be fixed, because there are other things about 10.04 that I really like.
I am recently getting a very weird error on my Webmin. The result of this problem I suspect is I am no longer able to log into my Maia Mailguard which is my Spam Viewer.

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 64 bit (2.6.31-20-generic) on a Z600 HP. My graphics card is Nvidia quadro NVS450. I am using the Ubuntu Nvidia driver 185.18.36. I am experiencing random, daily system freezes where the system has to be manually rebooted. After installing the crash dump packages I am now getting a crash dump file and it's clear the problem relates to my graphics card.
Is this a red herring or the cause of my problems: (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so (EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
The NVIDIA X Server Settings shows a message "Failed to query the GLX server vendor".

I have had this error for way too long. This post will be done in parts. I've had it for months now and I'd like to solve it. Every suggestion on linux forums, ubuntu forums, or some XYZ-linux blog seems to either work for just one boot or none at all. since I have updated my kernel on several occasions, I have also re-installed my NVIDIA kernel module by downloading the run file from NVIDIA's website. It also follows instructions from this post. I have installed the linux header files and the xorg-dev files from repository I have also tried this.
my sound works when i boot up but as soon as i play a couple of files with VLC video or audio it doesn't matter the sound stops and comes up with an error saying: ALSA version problem:VLC failed to re-initialize your sound output device. Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.22 or higher to fix this issue.Potential ALSA version problem:VLC failed to initialize your sound output device (if any).Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or higher to try to fix this issue. I found latest version on net and installed and yast said install fail version already installed my sound device is HDA Intel (ALC C880 Analog)
I keep getting a warning messaged almost every time I reboot about Ubuntu running in low-graphics mode on a Macbook 5,1. This has been happening since Lucid Beta 1.
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details.
After I finish loading in low graphics mode I have to run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". Then, the next reboot the graphics card driver is loaded properly. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have an idea how to correct it? I know it is a long shot, but do you think doing a fresh install of the stable release would work?
This problem has bothered me in both my previous install of 10.04 and my current one. Intermittently, booting into ubuntu results in ubuntu running in low-graphics mode, informing me that the Nvidia kernel module has failed to initialize.Running nvidia-xconfig does not help. Removing and then reinstalling the nvidia driver in Hardware drivers does not help. I experience the issue with both the 173 and current drivers.I love ubuntu, but this is making me seriously consider exploring other distros. Perhaps this not a bad thing - after I return from this exploration,
I am trying to get my Debian system running. I have an older Dell Precision 490 with two dual core CPUs. It has 16G Ram, an 150G Intel solid state drive, a 230G data drive, and a 600G backup drive. I have two Samsung monitors attached to the NVIDIA Geforce FX 5xx card. I have been using this machine for several years with Etch, then Lenny, running KDE 3.5. I recently needed to upgrade to Squeeze and KDE4 and have had nothing but problems since. I keep having issues with the video drivers, every time I touch anything the drivers seem to upgrade from the legacy 173 to the current 195.
There have been other library compatibility issues as well (gclib) and the machine has not been stable. This morning the system was running very slowly with X running at 100% (from top) and then the entire system froze. After a hard reboot, X did restart. The Xorg.0.log has the following message: "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly..."
I just got a popup from KPackagekit saying: Code: Distribution upgrade available. Fedora-12 Fedora 12 (Constantine) Start upgrade now Do I want to do this? Is it safe to do so? Can I roll back afterwards? Is there a better way to upgrade?
