Fedora :: KPackageKit - Waiting For Service To Start?
Aug 6, 2010
I have a couple of problems - and am new to Fedora which, up until about three days ago, was flawless.Am using KDE on F13. (Gnome & LXDE are also installed.)First problem is easy to solve, I think. How do I prevent "inactive" windows from fading out? It's an incredibly inconvenient feature and utterly defeats the whole purpose of the "Always on Top" option! I can't seem to find the option anywhere?On to KPackageKit. It has been trying to update KDE for the last three days but always gets hung up with the message: "Waiting for Service to Start."I notice that this problem might be listed as a Bug? - but not entirely sure.Is there a straightforward solution to this or is it, in fact, a bug?It also wants me to repeatedly restart because a new Kernel 126.96.36.199-124.fc13 has supposedly been installed.
Whenever I try to get KPackageKit to do anything, it says "Waiting for other tasks..." and just hangs. I can cancel (when there's a cancel button, but sometimes there's not) and yum runs just fine.Any advice on how to get this working? I hate hunting for the names of packages.
i am a new fedora 12 user (kde spin, 64bit)but received not-so-nice welcome from kpackagekit. i cannot install anything it always complains that "waiting for other tasks". how do i solve this?yum also does not work telling that
Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 1880.
The package manager runs when a user clicks on a .rpm file automatically. I tried clicking on it from a normal user dolphin window and it opened up but since it can't install to a /something directory, I had to run it as su. So I try to open dolphin as su and then click on my file. I see the package editor starting up (bouncy icon and a space in the panel) but it never actually pops up a window. Now when I click on the file from either user this is happening. What's going on? Is this a bug?
**update, it popped up from normal user after like 10x attempts and it said that the repository already exists and this is an unexpected error. what does that mean? what errors are "expected"?
It is the first time have I used VPN. I installed OpenVPN in my Fedora 11 computer. I did it following:URL...And I stopped at step 16: service openvpn start . The service can not start up. Even if I disabled Selinux . Does anyone know how to treat this trouble.
I used samba on FedoraCore2 before...and now i cannot config the same on FC10. I cannot start the service smb ( /etc/init.d/smb restart or service smb restart ) those commands dont work. How can i do to config samba service.
How can I start the vncserver serivce before any uesr log in? because I only have one screen now what I already did is when I log in the vncserver service going to be startup, but I want it can start before I log in. I try the "chkconfig --level 345 vncserver on" but after I reboot, I still cannot access the system before I have a log in action.
Does anyone know a secure method for starting a service after a user logs in to the desktop environment? There are a couple of issues that I'm trying to work around / troubleshoot and this would assist with doing that.
I'm running Fedora 11, not sure if that matters for this question.
I performed the first update in 4 months to my Fedora 12 Constantine. I also removed a 'dial-up' package (figured i didnt need it) and the KDE package after the update. Firefox was not getting a connection to the internet at this point. The network view showed the ethernet as inactive. Everything besides Firefox appears to work fine.
I restart machine.
It boots until right after the fedora logo fills up. At this point my dual monitors go to sleep. No response from anything. When I start in interactive mode I hit y for everything. Everything works great until libvirtd, libvirt-guest, and local. After y on all three nothing happens. I can type on the screen but no response. It just sits there. I can boot into text mode and do whatever I want. What can I do? What other information do I need to move forward?
I have looked at the Xorg.0.?? i forget what its called. I am not versed in reading the messages in it. Same for the other logs I looked at.

I have one problem regarding my web server. When I am try to restart my httpd service it shows...
[root@localhost ~]# service httpd restart Stopping httpd: [FAILED] Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down Unable to open logs [FAILED] [root@localhost ~]#
Just installed a Sparkle GeForce 8400 GS on my Dell Dimension 2350 running FC9. As stated, every time the system goes to start the card, a stack trace occurs. I know the first thing that everyone will ask for is the output from the stack trace, but for the life of me I can't capture it. Tried grabbing the STDOUT and SDTERR from the 'service start' command, but nothing interesting is ever there. If anyone knows if and where such things get stored, just letting me know that would help. I assumed there would be something in /var/log, but no. For some reason, there's a lot of python errors in the output. I imagine I could try to type in as much of the output as possible, but I'm hoping someone has seen this before.
Anyway, I've tried the Nvidia install executable, the nvidia-newest RPMs, the nvidia-96xx RPMs and they all fail the same way. I also can't get the card to come up as the primary device on boot, which I don't think should be a problem since they all boot into VGA mode, don't they? If I disable the internal video setup in the BIOS, the machine freezes on bootup with blinking lights on the keyboard, which I imagine is the BIOS's way of telling me there's no monitor available.
I also tried getting the nv and nouveau drivers going with no luck. They are installed on the machine, but I'm embarrassed to say I don't know how to get them configured. Not really a driver guy, I guess. Also, the reason I installed this card is to get TVOUT, and I don't know if generic drivers will have support for that sort of thing.
At this point, I'm just looking for a way forward. One thing I remember is that when I removed the 'fglrx' drivers (because they conflicted with the NVIDIA stuff) I remember that a few python/fglrx based packages went with it. I'm wondering if that could be at the root of the failure, given the python errors in the stack trace.
Recently i've upgraded my fedora 11 to 12 using the preupgrade command and now I have a problem booting! when i start the interactive boot it hangs after trying to run the service local, it looks as if its trying to boot because the cursor blinks really fast then blinks normally after a few seconds. no error was stated during the event. what seems to be the problem here?
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?
Does anyone know where to get documentation for KPackageKit? I've searched on KDEs web site and this forum without success. Also on Fedora.org and googling but nothing so far.I recently loaded this distro (F13) to try it out after using mostly openSUSE and some of the minimal distros. I'm finding there is quite a learning curve, even I started in linux with RedHat 5.1.
I love Fedora and have been using Redhat since v5. I am using Fedora13 x86_64 and when I use kpackagekit if I use the dropdown list of groups it says waiting for service, then returns with no entries. I have done a yum clean all; yum clean metadata; yum clean dbcache; yum makecache
I have searched, and I have found that it's a problem of Kpackagekit. The solution would be to install Wicd, but according to the official page, Wicd don't support connection from usb modem, that it's what to occupy generally, but often I need connect to internet from wi-fi.Is there a option for connect so much to wi-fi as to usb modem
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.
In an effort to reduce/eliminate adware, I installed Provoxy from the F12 repos using yumex. The config file is unchanged except for the addition of the this line: forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .
I note that rpm placed the following (/etc/rc.d/init.d/privoxy), and that in that file are the following lines:
I seem to recall that network manager was changed somewhat to allow those using static ip addressing to NOT do dhcp on boot. Could this be the reason for the non-starting of the privoxy service on boot? Sometimes it starts on boot, and other times I must manually start it in Gnome's System->Services.
If these lines and the network starting is the problem, how do I fix it? Can I comment out these lines in this file, or is there somewheres else where I should be looking?
I have installed fedora 13 in my system. httpd server is also installed. when I tried to start the service of httpd, following error message displayed: Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
