Fedora :: Software From Updates-testing Repo / Grabbed From Testing Repo When Run Regular Updates?

Jun 22, 2010

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?

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:

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.

Ubuntu :: Community Repo Updates / Canonical Does Not Provide Updates For Warsow?

Dec 20, 2010

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?

Debian :: Upgrade An App Without Using Testing Repo?

Aug 4, 2011

I want to have most my system in Debian Stable and a few packages updated to a version that is not in Stable repos.For example Abiword. With the one in Debian Stable I have many issues.I could add Debian testing repos and update it, but then I will have to upgrade to testing a lot of programs that I didn't intended to upgrade.ex: Abiword in testing may requiere libc6(testing) and with that I would have to upgrade a lot of programs that will not work with a newer version of libc6.

Fedora :: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Not In Updates Testing

Feb 19, 2011

It was released a couple days ago, and the Scribus team always sends new releases to Fedora, but on my Fedora 14 x86_64 computer I can't find it in updates-testing:

# yum install scribus --enablerepo=updates-testing
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
updates-testing/metalink | 15 kB 00:00
updates-testing | 4.7 kB 00:00
updates-testing/primary_db | 880 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Package scribus-1.3.9-1.fc14.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

I can always download the RPM and install it directly, but I prefer to use yum. Did the updates-testing people misplace it? Or did the Scribus team forget to send it to Fedora?

Fedora :: How To Downgrade Updates Testing Package

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Updates Fail (Repo Not Available)

May 21, 2011

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.

Slackware :: Call For Testing - Xorg Updates (20100830)

Aug 30, 2010

For anyone interested in testing new xorg stuff, here it is: [URL]. The good news is that this package set should work fine in either 13.1 or -current. The build box is 13.1, so I know they're compatible there; however, I'm running them on both 13.1 and -current systems, so I'm pretty sure they'll work on either. Be sure to read the NOTES file before you go digging around in PACKAGES.

OpenSUSE Install :: KR46 And Updates Repo Priorities?

Jun 20, 2011

Currently I have the latest stable KDE packages through two repositories:

KDE-KR46 | .../repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4/
KDE-Extra-KR46 | .../repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.4/
The priorities are:
KR46: 75
Extra-KR46: 85

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Error In Repo Initialization While Running Online Updates

Mar 18, 2011

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.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Removing A Repo - Error "can't Find The Data For The 'problem' Repo"

Nov 20, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot After Regular - Security Updates - Installed

Apr 22, 2011

A few weeks ago I did a WUBI 10.04 LTS install on a Windows XP desktop that went perfect. System ran great until this morning. I was prompted to install "Security Updates", which I allowed the system to do, but thereafter was unable to boot. What happens is at the point of selecting either Windows or Ubuntu for booting, and I choose Ubuntu, the computer goes right back into a re-boot process and brings me back to the Windows/Ubuntu boot selection prompt. It doesn't even bring me into the secondary boot level of asking which type of Ubuntu boot I want (generic, etc.). Is there a solution for this problem besides reinstalling Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Wireless Stopped Connecting - Applying Regular Updates Via Update Manager

May 9, 2011

My self-built PC had a BT wireless adaptor in it which worked, albeit after a bit of a faff, with Ubuntu 10.10 in connecting to my BT HomeHub2.

When I came to use it last week it would not connect. I'd not changed any hardware but I had been applying regular updates via Update Manager.

Bearing in mind the "faff" factor, I decided to try a different (Edimax) wireless card but got the same result. Upgrading to 11.04 has made no difference either.

It does *try* to connect but fails, so I think the card is installed correctly. I've also tried a full reset on the HomeHub and the setup works fine with W7.
