OpenSUSE Install :: Installation Fails While Installing Package

Jul 1, 2010

I'm installing openSUSE 11.2 on a notebook from DVD + locally mirrored update and kde4 buildservice repositories. This usually worked fine, but this time, the installation always fails at about 89% while installing some package, whose name I can't find out. Its script fails with error 127, the error message blocks access to the log.

Is there a way to continue the installation process afterwards, instead of always trying to reinstall and hoping to find out the name of the failing package?

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE Login On 11.4 Fails (after Installing Patches)

May 22, 2011

I m try to explain the structure I tried to use here:Symptoms: Describes what is happening right now What happened: Describes the history leading to the problem My tries so far: Describes, what I did (so far in vain) to clean up the problem Questions: I already searched the forum (see "My tries so far") but missed to write down the URLs for the threads. (So they aren't mentioned under "My tries so far")

Symptoms: The system boots up ok, I get to the KDE login, but for both my user account and the root account, the login fails. After entering username and password a progressbar comes up. This gets to 3/4 (if I counted the steps correctly) then stops. If I wait for several minutes, the screen will finally just turn black. (It is *not* switched to suspend or somesuch by DPMS; I didn't wait for that turning black in all tries described below) I can login on a console into the system.

System Intel CPU Core2, E6750 Suse 11.4, 64 Bit (both original and backup system) Kernel: Linux x86_64 (backup system) / vmlinuz- (original system) KDE: 4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6" (on the the backup system, because I don't know how it get the info as long as I can't login to KDE)

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing NVidia Driver For Geforce GTX 275 Fails

Aug 20, 2009

I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.

Debian :: Installing Kernel Sources - Make Command To Build Package Fails

Jul 22, 2010

I'm trying to build the package zaptel on debian, but I'm encountering two errors:
1- When I try to run the "make menuselect" command, I get an error stating that I need ncurses which is missing. I tried to get it installed but didn't get to do it yet.
2- After that, there's the command "make" I think it's to build the package. Yet again this fails, and the error I get is "you do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.26-2-686 kernel installed".

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation 11.4 Fails ?

May 9, 2011

I wanted to update my 11.3 installation to 11.4. Everything went fine, but at the point the installation switched to the installed new system, it went completely wrong. This is the first time after more than 15 years of using (open)SUSE I have got trouble to install a new version.

What went wrong: the display shows some hundred miniature thumbnails of the screen to continue the installation. Only possibility was to switch to a console session. I did change the settings in initrd to NO_KMS_IN_INITRD to 'yes', then rebooted the PC. But the display is still unusuable. Then I tried the failsafe option, without any success. So I had to re-install the previous version, where I don't have this troubles. Fortunately, I made a backup of most of my settings, but it takes me still a lot of time to re-install everything, as I have to re-install a lot of libraries and recompile some programs.

I did a try with a live-DVD of Knoppix, the display is also scrambled but not so bad as with 11.4. Then I tried a live-CD of Kubuntu, and there anything worked PERFECT!

If openSUSE cann't give me a valuable explanation and solution, I have to consider to switch to Kubuntu after more than 15 years of openSUSE.

Some details of my hardware:
- graphics card: nVidia GeForce 6150SE
- driver: nouveau
- display: Acer HD 24inch screen with a resolution of 1900x1080

Remark: with the installation of 11.4 on other PC's of friends and family, I didn't have troubles, but they don't have such a high-resolution display.

OpenSUSE :: MonoDevelop Fails To Package With Error

Feb 26, 2010

I am brand new to openSUSE (coming from Fedora then Kubuntu then Linux Mint) and I must say I am very impressed. Unfortunately I am also a C# developer and I need Mono (and more specifically MonoDevelop) to function correctly. I installed MonoDevelop from YaST and started with the simple "Hello World" command line project that is included by default. I then added Tarball packaging to the solution and attempted to build the package. It spit out the following error:

"Package creation failed. Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

I then tried double clicking on the Tarball package in the solution and it gave me an Unhandled Exception error dialog with a stack trace. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem? It's as if I am missing a required package or something. I have tried to install automake but that didn't change anything.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Reboot Fails During 11.3 Installation

Aug 3, 2010

I am trying to update my OS from Opensuse 11.2 to 11.3 using the installation DVD (checked OK). Everything is OK during the installation process until the message "System is going to reboot" is displayed with a countdown : when the countdown is finished, the screen becomes black and the screensaver starts, but the system does not reboot. When I reboot manually, after selecting "Opensuse 11.3 desktop" on the first menu, the screen becomes black and the screensaver starts.

So the installation seems incomplete and I do not know how to finalize it. When I select the failsafe option on the first menu, it seems to work but some behaviours are quite "strange"... When I choose update instead of installation at the beginning, the behaviour is the same.

I do not know if it is linked but the firmware tests started from the installation DVD show the following errors :

Memory tests are OK.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation Fails On IBM XSeries 440 Server

Jul 7, 2011

I am trying to install openSuSE 11.4 on my IBM xSeries 440 Server and I am not having much success. I am getting to the welcome screen and installation menu screen fine, but when I select the 'install' option it loads the Linux kernel up to %100 and then just goes to a black screen from which the only escape is a reboot, the same thing happens when I select 'check installation media' and 'Firmware test'. I have tried the 'no ACPI' and 'safe settings' setting and still no luck.

I have successfully installed Windows server 2003 Enterprise edition on this machine so I know the hardware is ok.I suspect it could be a driver issue, but as I am very new to Linux and server installations I am grasping at straws.

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.2 Installation Fails While Copying Root Filesystem

Jan 27, 2010

Have been running 11.1 on a generic notebook (eRacks) just fine until a few days ago when CUPS couldn't be reached. Rather than futz more with 11.1, I decided to install 11.2 (which has been on my desktop). Using the same CD, which continues to check ok, the install has failed many times at about the same point: 87% through "copying root filesystem" in yast2.
Specs: Intel P4 2.4 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, ATI radeon PV250Lf

The HD was partitioned into /, swap, /home, and an extended partition of /opt, /var, /usr. Only / was ext4 and the rest were ext3. Tried various options:
* no apic
* no acpi
* "noapic acpi=off" entered manually
* Vesa instead of 1024x768

Each time had to edit partition table to mount the extended partitions. Always formatted /. At first didn't format the extended patitions, later formated all but /home. Then set yast2 to format / as ext3, to match the other partitions. In the sysinfo page the / partition is now shown as /mnt containing 723.6 MB out of 7 GB, still formatted as ext4. On rescan by yast2 partition manager, / shows as ext3. The install halts every time with an error while "copying root filesystem." Tried booting from the CD direct to install and to the Live OS followed by install--same result. So, hours later, went back to 11.1--which installed in minutes.

OpenSUSE Install :: Lenovo W520 - Installation Fails When Formatting Partitions

May 6, 2011

I'm trying to install openSuSE 11.4 onto my brand-new Lenovo W520 laptop, using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (FakeRAID?) controller, ROM version I have 2 physical 500GB disks configured in a mirror (RAID-1). Everything looks fine, the installation program comes up and asks if I want to use mdadm to manage the RAID, to which I answer yes. I go through the normal setup screens, and select the partition layout that I want (for sake of this post, I'll limit myself to the layout that the system itself recommends).

The problem comes when it becomes time to format the partitions. Somehow the partitioning program gets it into it's head that the root partition is 10TB, not 20GB, and the ext4 partitioning fails in various ways (short reads to sector zero, unable to map using 4096 byte sectors, etc, etc) depending on exactly which partitioning scheme I'm attempting. I pretty much get the same result no matter how I play the partitions, which file systems I use (XFS, ext4, etc [of course, I can't use XFS for /boot...]).

For now I've gone ahead and set myself up using software RAID, since this system is unlikely to become dual-boot with Windows for a few years at least. (As an aside, but as a hint to others, when the installation fails, I end up having to go back into the Intel RAID controller BIOS boot to clear out the entire RAID setup each time it fails - the disks are left in a completely useless state).

Debian Installation :: Package Updater Fails After Update To V8.0

Apr 27, 2015

After Updating to version 8.0 today...

Package Updater GUI is Failing with the message:

No updates are available
No network connection was detected.

I did updates almost daily on wheezy

Todays updates [via the Pkg Updater GUI] were over 300 meg.
After the updates and reboot
System was showing version 8.0 in the GUI desktop and using 'cat /etc/debian_version'

From terminal I did ...

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The dist-upgrade was over 40 minute and ~ 500meg

Things seemed to go well.

I updated sources.list with apt-spy.

[In order to trouble-shoot: I subsequently commented-out the apt-spy sources and found some generic sources on internet]

# sources.list generated by apt-spy v3.2.2
# Generated using:


apt-get and Synaptic GUI both work.

I did/reviewed some settings in the Synaptic GUI I imported two v8 signing keys into Synaptic from [URL]

Fedora Servers :: LAMP Package Installation Fails / What To Do?

Mar 7, 2011

I have a desktop running on Fedora 14. I installed LAMP by using scripts for package installation. That works fine. Also, I have a virtual environment (Virtual Machine Manager), in which I installed Fedora 14 as well. I tried to install LAMP by the same scripts and the same packages as on my desktop, but strangely - it does not work.

I figured out that in both cases two instances of httpd.conf are installed, one residing in /etc/httpd/conf/, the other one in /usr/local/apache2/conf. The first one seems to belong to the server that is by default installed together with Fedora 14. The second one is the result from the package installation.

For a reason unknown to me, the second one (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf) is always activated on my desktop, while the first one (/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf) is activated by default in my virtual computer. I have been able to change the DocumentRoot with succes.

I know how to install LAMP with yum, I have a second virtual computer with LAMP installed by yum, and the whole question is not an urgent one, but... I am just curious... what could have caused the difference? And what would I have to do whenever I would like to use the package installation or vice versa?

Debian Installation :: Dpkg-scanpackages Fails When Package Limit Exceeded

Nov 2, 2015

After receiving no response either here or on IRC, I copied 80 package files to a temporary directory and ran dpkg-scanpackages . /dev/null > Packages with the expected result. The curious part is the delay when output redirection is not used: nothing appears until the script completes, when the result is dumped to the screen. It therefore appears that there is an upper limit to the number of packages that the script can handle, somewhere between 80 and 42,474.

Is this an undocumented feature, or just a peculiarity of my system?

I'm new to Debian and wanting to set up a local repository on my work drive. After following instructions online and copying all packages (~43,000) from the DVD set into /work/Debian/8.2/packages/ I ran dpkg-scan-packages as instructed:

Code: Select all# dpkg-scan-packages . /dev/null | gzip -9c > Packages.gz

This produced an empty file. I then ran dpkg-scanpackages with no output redirection expecting to see a flood of text on the screen, but all I got were error messages suggesting that it can see the .deb packages but is not parsing them:

Code: Select allroot@qbx:~# dpkg-scanpackages /work/Debian/8.2/packages
dpkg-deb: error: invalid character ' ' in archive '/work/Debian/8.2/packages/libshhopt1_1.1.7-3_i386.deb' member 'debian-binary' size
dpkg-scanpackages: error: couldn't parse control information from /work/Debian/8.2/packages/libshhopt1_1.1.7-3_i386.deb

[Code] ....

This all seems in accord with the man page, and it's so simple I'm wondering what I'm missing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting From Grub2 LVM In A KVM Guest Fails When Using - Virtual Package

Jun 7, 2010

I switched a working Lucid KVM guest from linux-server to linux-virtual and it could not mount root at boot time and issued a panic instead. Switching back (booted from CD and used "rescue a broken system") revived the VM.

My first guess is that some DM driver module needed for LVM is missing from the linux-virtual package.

What's the best way of installing gnuplot (or some other aplication) on our systems? Should we download from sources and compile? Could we add some special source to our list and download from there?

OpenSUSE :: Installing RPMs Elsewhere - Package Not Relocatable

Jul 19, 2010

I can use KRPMview or midnight commander to see what's in an RPM, fine. I might want to inspect a file inside an RPM or actually install some of its files but this latter might upset already installed files. Or, it is so dependent on something else being previously installed. Therefore I need to install it elsewhere, take a look at he file content and/or copy, it to where I want.

There are options: --badreloc --prefix --relocate --nodeps --ignoreos --force

Some are mutually exclusive but the result is it still tells me - package not relocatable. Is there any other magic incantation or do I need to do some time-consuming backup, run the RPM install and any deps hell, do my intended thing, then another time-consuming restore? Or maybe set up a partition with a suitable suse version and just run the RPM there and then copy over?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing Driver At Time Of OS Installation

Aug 4, 2011

Is it possible to install a video driver at the time of the installation of the operating system? I have made multiple installation attempts using the various 11.4 x64 live & non-live versions. As soon as I get past the splash screen with the boot options, the display becomes corrupt & continuing is impossible. I have attempted using the various video options under the F6 menu (text mode, vesa, safe mode) without success.

I am reasonably certain it is a failure of the video driver. I have observed the identical behaviour while installing MS Windows with the incorrect video driver. The video chipset manufacturer does provide a linux driver on their website. It is a .run file. I have the .run file on a USB stick along with the OS files. This is a link to the hardware platform I am attempting to install to. Is it possible that my video chipset has insufficient video memory?
