OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Yast2 Error In Repository Initialization
Apr 19, 2011
I just installed 11.4 and was adding a new repository which I entered incorrectly. Yast2 complained and did not add it to the repository list. Now when I run Yast2 Software Management.
I get the following error message...
"There was an error in the repository initialization.
Error refreshing service Packman 11.4 (vaval.com - Islam Resources and Information. This website is for sale!
Parse error: repoindex.xml Opening and ending tag mismatch: meta line 2 and noscript"
Since this line does not show up in my repository list I cannot remove it. How do I edit the data file directly and where is it located?
trying to install broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop and broadcom-wl-220.127.116.11-7 for my wireless driver. The yast2 keep saying error. Don't know why. I installed opensue11.3 with not problem. Missing packman when i zypper repos command.Do anybody know why.I am very new to linux.I always been window user.
'm new to linux as of today, and I'm really liking it so far, but I've already run into issues. When I open up the software manager in openSUSE 11.3 (KDE), I receive the following warning message:
There was an error in the repository initialization.'repo-update': [URL].. Repository is not cached From there, I'm unable to install anything (I want to install WICD because KNetworkManager is not working for me). How do I resolve this issue?
I'm using openSUSE 11.4 64bit (KDE). I enabled Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/oss repository through YaST2 but it is empty and I can't see any source rpm file in YaST2. I even delete that repository and add it again but still empty. I open the link in firefox and it's not empty or invalid link.
Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are : From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm After installed suse linux. error messages for all options in yast2.
The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.
So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?
I am using opensuse 11.3. I am encountering a problem while trying to log in. The problem message was "could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation" I tried to solve this problem by following the instructions given in OpenSuSE 11.0 Could not start kdeinit4... i.e., I opened yast2 and then I had to select "software management" from there in order to update all the packages in kde4. But I got another error when I clicked it.
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base:/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.6: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/YaST2/plugin/libpy2wfm.so.2)
The error list continues. I cannot type whole error list ending with similar wordings as above as am using different computer. I tried to solve this one too by following the instructions in Relocation Error but I could not understand its line "...fixed the problem by taking /usr/local/lib out of ld.so.conf, and then running ldconfig" as am new to linux.
I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.
I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.
But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.
I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.
So I installed the Unison synch software with sudo apt-get install unison-gtk. When I set up the two directories for synchronization it looks like this: $ unison ssh:\SERVER\pathpath /var/www/path/path/path
I am getting this error in terminal Uncaught exception Gtk.Error("GtkMain.init: initialization failed ml_gtk_init: initialization failed") Fatal error: exception Util.Fatal("Error in getLogch: /home/path/.unison/unison.log: No such file or directory"
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.
The /etc/profile said that i should do that in /etc/profile.local.I create /etc/profile.local, set the aliases, then i reboot.Now i've got a broken bash enviroment. Prompt has gone, ls colors gone, useful aliases (md=mkdir) gone.I've got this prompt: 'bash-4.0$' instead of the 'username@hostname:actual dir'.The root account has got the same errors, so i think i broke something system-wide.I removed the profile.local but the problem stays.What should i do to regain the standard bash enviroment?
I haven't been able to locate this cause. The problem developed as follows:
1. Used a downloaded .ymp file to add a community package, chose NOT to add the repo permanently from the Customize button... installation of package failed. 2. Added the repo manually in Yast Software Repositories and it went thru the process without error, BUT the repo never appeared in the list. (this is where i think the problem lies) 3. Tried to add the package using .ymp package without blocking the new repo addition... package installed successfully. Then deleted the repo using Yast Software Repositories gui.
Now starting Yast Software Management the process starts and downloads the repo.xml files from each enabled repo, then displays a error msg stating "Parsing Error". Dismiss and it loads the normal interface and seems to work properly from then on.
I am unable to examine Apache httpd error log from YaST2 because the lines are too long; the browser just truncates them and thus it does not show any description. The only option is to save it. However, when I chose that option, YaST2 encourages me to save it in /tmp, and as soon as I do that, the log becomes accessible to every user!
What the heck do I do now? 2 times I've re-installed suse 11.2 and this is what I get every time it tries the first update. I just had a perfectly fine working version of 11.2 that was installed using the network install just 3 days ago but I messed up and couldn't access mySql. Today I blew it away thinking I'd just start over and now it doesn't work. I installed it exactly the same as 2 days ago, whats changed? How do I fix this? I can't access the software repository settings in yast, nothing happens when I try to start it.
I've been running a SuseStudio-built VM for a few weeks with no issues. I built a new one recently, and now I can't configure a new vhost in Apache using the http-server module. It gives me this error. Screen shot 2010-11-06 at 11.42.24 AM.png. Why YaST suddenly decided that my hostnames aren't valid?
I am installing from the scratch a 11.3 on a PC on which previously 11.1 did run flawlessly. (Athlon 3700 with 3GB ram and Asrock socket 939 mainboard. Graphics is Nvidia. The installation comes every time up to 90% when it arrives at "font initialization). No error message is displayed. The little "cursor wheel" is still turning but else, there is no activity.
DVD from an sha1 checked and MD5 doublechecked download was burned with lowest speed in K3b and verified by the same program post burn, with full success of every verification. Tried to change DVD reader but does not change the result. Runs speedy up to that step.
I've been trying for awhile to install the restricted formats, but when in the download & and install process, YaST2 pops up saying that such and such RPM has failed. I hit ignore, and it happens again and again to all the other packages, bar the odd few that work.
Whenever I tried to install LXDE using the 1-click install, YaST2 just freezes and doesn't respond and doesn't install anything. In fact, YaST2 always freezes whenever trying to install a program with the 1-click install.
So my question is, How do you abort YaST2 from installing because obviously the Abort button doesn't even work! And lastly, how can I install LXDE through the terminal as I always never have a problem installing something through the terminal.
I have problems with running Yast2 under Gnome when I connect via VNC to the computer. The first 20-30 times it worked, but then it simply stopped to work. When switching to another VNC-Server (instead of :1 to :2) it works again for approx. 20-30 times. The behaviour is very much similar to the one described here:
Yast2 startet nicht unter VNC (SUSE 11.1/Gnome)
I use OpenSUSE 11.2 with german language set. The VNC server I use the one that is installed "by default".
When I try to run Yast2 from a terminal under Gnome as normal user I get the following output:
./yast2: Zeile 30: ./lib/YaST2/bin/yast2-funcs: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden ./yast2: Zeile 267: set_lang_from_sysconfig: Kommando nicht gefunden. ./yast2: Zeile 192: check_qt: Kommando nicht gefunden. Qt GUI wanted but not found, failing back to ncurses.
11.3 ; looking to play with DNS; nothing of the kind is showing in Yast networking menus. Checked, and BIND shows as installed. Also, while I'm crying for help: cant see the windows box next to me; can ping it, and could browse to it with File Manager yesterday, but not working today ! Also; I tried KDE desktop (like new things) but it's driving me nuts (menus too small, I lose the choices as I move through submenus) and I'd like to go to Gnome ; how to ?
Whenever I try to install anything from YaST2, it decides to include a lot of extra stuff I don't need. It says it's just added dependencies, but I hardly think the Russian translation for the open office help files counts as a dependency for WINE. This also happens when I try to install the amarok mp3 codec.
This is my second day trying to learn opensuse. My lack of terminology makes it very hard to google for the answers. I need to do this: opensuse:~ # yast2 install postgresql-server apache2 perl texlive perl-DBD-Pg libapr-util1-dbd-pgsql I know about yast, however this looks like something that needs to ran from terminal.
I'll get to the point straight away... I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 on a HD that already has Win 7 on it.I left out 15.52 GB of space just to install Opensuse but when I select that partition (which of course is empty) and tell YaST2 to install OpenSuse there it tells me there isn't enough space. Is 15 GB not enough!?inimum requirements where supposed to be 3GB I think...S this is how the disk is devided... Primary partition of 50GB for win 7, 400 of Logic partition for Programs, and supposedly 15GB for OpenSuse...
It's been a while since I've use linux (specifically suse). But my wife and I are expecting our first child and our office/second bedroom is now being converted into the baby room. I built the computer that is currently in there and it is a really nice one that I do not want to get rid of. Two 500GB Sata2 drives and 8Gigs of RAM (not to mention my quad-core Phenom AMD processor and sweet asus motherboard) -- I just can't get rid of it. So what I planned to do was turn it into a small home server. I did some research and kept coming back to using opensuse as the server. I read this article The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials and it seemed to have just about everything I'd like to do (maybe some extras that I don't really need, but might in the future). Everything was going fine until I got to a certain point. The install went fine, and I was starting to customize some of the settings for my own home setup. Now, the problem...
I've gotten to page 3 of the tutorial The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] - Page 3 | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
and I am installing packages through yast2, and all the packages installed fine except for 'compat-readline4'. I think this is a form of command line editor or something to do with that. I am sure I am going to need it to finish the server set up, but I can't get it installed anywhere. I've tried to install it by pointing directly to the mirror found at rpm.pbone.net and still I get nowhere.
Yast2 auto refresh seems to fail everytime I run it. Even though I installed all the other packages, I get an error message that says it can't get the medium. When I look at the details of the error it says it can't resolve the host for downloads.opensuse.org.
I was running openSUSE 10.3 using yast2-firstboot and everything worked perfectly. I have since upgraded to 11.2 and after a post on this forum I was able to get yast2-firstboot to run. The control file was moved to touch /var/lib/YaST2/reconfig_system instead of touch /etc/reconfig_system. All is well there and firstboot does run. I have a script that basically sets up the hostname, IP addresses, etc on the machines. This worked in 10.3 but in 11.2 it doesn't execute. I can manually run the script which I have defined in the /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file. The SCRIPT_DIR="/usr/share/firstboot/scripts" I noticed a new entry this file labeled - # Action that should be done after the firstboot sequence finishes.
FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_ACTION="" Should I place my script here? I read the doc and you can use reboot but need my script to run first. To I just put the name of the script or the entire path to the script if that is the place to put it. On a side note. Does anyone know where the default FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_FILE="" is located? I want to use that as a template but change and add a few lines to this. I just can't locate it anywhere on the system.
