Fedora :: Comand Line To Update The System Via Yum Update?
Jan 28, 2011
Yesterday i have installed F14 and then went to the comand line to update the system via yum update. It was about 860MB of updates in 430 packages. The strange thing is that only one package was a delta rpm and all other were normal rpm. Is Fedora giving up on presto or it needs some special configuration?
I have a error when i want to update my system via YUMI execute the next command.sh@ yum -y updateYou could try using --skip-broken to work around the problemYou could try running:package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigestThe program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
I am using Fedora 12 Live Disk to post this because Fedora 15 seems to be missing the Network Manager, which is what I need to set up my Dell 1525 laptop.I cannot update nor download anything in Fedora 15 because I cannot get on line.I can't find the Network Manager in F-15.I have the Intel PRO?Wireless 3945ABG internal Mini Card.
I am starting to learn about the nuts and bolts of Linux and I wanted to have an option in my Grub boot loader to boot up without x window or any services just a log in so I can test changing config files and experience a system that isn't bogged down by all the things that come along with them.
using tomcat6 server os is fedora9 i need to run test.jsp file every 20 minits i assigned the cron job */20 * * * * wget http://<my host>/containfolder/recurring.jsp but, its take long time so i need to run test.jsp file in linux command prompt, Is it possible to run JSP in linux command prompt?. If there is yes mean, plz tell how we can do that.
I have two txt files containing x and y coordinates: xcoord.txt & ycoord.txt. I need to open them; read them line by line to get each coordinate; then each time I need to update Xs and Ys parameters inside another file called "dc.in" with the grabbed values.
Finally each time I need to run two exe files ( dc_2002 and st_vac) and produce corresponding output for each Xs and Ys ( dc.in is an input file for this exe files)
I have written the following code but it does not work:
I originally tried Ubuntu 9.10 via a windows installation through Wubi. I had a VERY complex problem with a "Kernal Panic" due to an update through update manager and my system would not run proficiently. I wanted to know if that bug was exclusive to Wubi installations or does it also exist with this method of installation. I'm not going to update ANYTHING until I know for sure.
I've install F10 to use it as server and router and found a strange problem on my XP machine which is behind the F10. I've tried to update my Lineage2 client from official server but the update crash, tried to open the web page it didn't open. Also tried to open microsoft web it didn't open. When i try to open the same pages on PC with F10 they open with no problem.
I was updating my F12 and the system crashed .. no idea why.. anyway I cannot boot anymore using the kernel 126.96.36.199-174, but I can boot using the 188.8.131.52-166 ... now when I issue the yum update, the system says its up-to-date...is there any way to 'force' the yum to update the system again ?
My system system suffers from frequent kernel panics, which I think are due to gnome-shell with the nVidia driver. (I see no panic message and nothing is logged, but I've enabled magic SysRq and it makes no difference.) Twice this has occurred during yum-update's install stage, which is making me wonder. Uum-update then complained about an unfinished transaction, so I ran yum-complete-transaction as suggested. I've also tried yum-clean-all and rebuilding the RPM database, suggested in other threads, but I'm still seeing the following errors on yum-update:

I don't know where these 32-bit packages have come from this is an x86-64 system and the only x86-32 stuff I've intended to install is the Adobe flash plug-in. Also the later dupes are different 64-bit versions. I've tried "package-cleanup --cleandupes" as suggested in this thread: [URL]. It wants to remove the old versions, but also wants to remove packages that depend on them, including clutter, so I cancelled that. The first time round I was left with a barely usable system and had to reinstall, which I'd rather avoid, especially if this is going to be a regular occurrence. I'm not familiar with RPM (or kernel panics for that matter).
There is a problem with dependency resolution for the recent updates; i can't update my system even with the skip-broken, there is something to nautilus and phyton-devel and phyton, pls, take note of these.

I've upgraded from FC11 to FC12 32-bit (live CD to HD install). Now when I try to perform software updates it gives me an Internal System Error. I've clicked on more details and it gives me the following:
Code: Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'> Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in <module> main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 710, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args, args[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 657, in dispatch_command self.update_packages(only_trusted, package_ids) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1948, in update_packages signed = self._is_package_repo_signed(pkg) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1437, in _is_package_repo_signed repo = self.yumbase.repos.getRepo(pkg.repoid) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/repos.py, line 121, in getRepo 'Error getting repository data for $s, repository not found' $ (repoid)
Everything else seems to work, including all of the programs I've installed from non-Fedora sources i.e. DOSEmu, Adobe Flash plug-in and Cannon LBP-660 printer driver.
Wednesday I went to work, docked and fired up my older Dell C840 laptop (running Fedora 12). It had a long list of updates that it downloaded and installed (it had been off for about a week). When the updates were finished, I noticed that my laptop had locked up. After waiting a while, I ended up doing a cold reboot. After that, I get the Fedora symbol that fills up, and then the screen goes black with a single cursor. You can type in anything and it is reflected- even control and ALT codes. If you hit CTL- ALT-F2, it goes into a terminal mode. You can do almost anything that you'd normally do in terminal mode. The video driver is the original off the install disk, and it's never been changed- it works fine right out of the box.
If I try to start up X-Windows, I get a segmentation fault error. I've tried deleting and then re-installing some of the packages that were updated (trying this via yum), no difference. I don't know what else to do. I need to get this laptop going before next week- it's my work computer and I do use it a lot. Is there any way to get in touch with the people who wrote the updates, and file a bug report? I'm using my main (home) system right now, that for a couple of reasons needs to stay on windoze XP for a few more weeks. I've been around computers for years, but not Linux.
I ran update on my ASUS N51Vf laptop yesterday and among the updates there was one for udev. After installing it udev refuses to start at all saying: "iTCO_wdt: unexpected close, not stopping watchdog". Then I get to login but not for long: after several seconds either system reboots instantly or it hangs shutting down display. Is there any way to rollback udev update somehow considering I can't even login into system?
I was using Fedora 9 until about 1 month ago when my hard drive crashed. I installed F12 on a new hard drive last week. Due to some other software issues (empathy), I decided I should try to get the latest updates. PackageKit kept giving errors and would not update. So, I researched and found that I needed to run " su -c 'yum update' " for the first update then PackageKit would work. I did this and after about an hour of updating, the screen went black. Nothing you can do at that point but hard reboot.
When I did that, I could only get a "GRUB" command line. I played with it for a minute but really I have no idea what to do with GRUB cmd (beyond my experience level). So I decided to wipe it out and reinstall F12. I did that, and was just working thru the updates again. Same thing happened, went to black screen. I have not rebooted it yet, but Im sure when I do, it will be GRUB again. What in the world am I supposed to do with this? I am not a Linux star, but I have been using it for around 8 years now with various distros, so I would say I have at least moderate experience.
