OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded From 11.2 To 11.4 - Switching Systems Packages To PACKMAN Packages

Aug 31, 2011

I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.4 and the installation/upgrade worked just perfect. I than followed the instructions in the "New User How To/FAQ", "Multimedia and restricted format" post. I was following the instruction in the 11.4 section. I added the additional repositories as explained. I then was on the section where it talks about going into software management and selecting the "Packman" repository and clicking to "switch systems packages" to the versions in this repository (packman). I than click this link and the "warning" screen appears and I am present with conflict resolution after conflict resolution dialog. It just seems that there are some many conflicts, it just seems wrong and I canceled.

The installation/upgrade appears to have worked just fine. My mail is there, audio and dvd play back worked the first try after the upgrade. I am not clear if this is what I should expect or their is something wrong or if I even need to complete this step for a successfully installation.

Slackware :: Find Upgraded Kde Packages For Slack13 Without Going Current?

Apr 30, 2010

I have a new install of Slack 13 and upgrading to current will break a lot of things for my 4 year old son (he's a gnome guy, what can I say). I will be using this machine too, and I NEED KDE, but of course the stock KDE packages are unstable to say the least. I know I've seen people talking of downloading upgraded kde packages for slackware 13, but when I google, I find a lot of things complaining about the stock KDE and of course Eric's packages for current.

Ubuntu Servers :: Upgraded From Maverick To Natty - Installed Unwanted Extra Packages

Apr 30, 2011

I upgraded my dedicated server using the do-release-upgrade command, and it seems to have installed many extra packages I do not require. This is a headless server in a datacentre, yet the upgrade caused me to install GUI packages I do not need. Is there a way to quickly remove all but the default server packages?

Debian :: Installing I386 Packages Prompts Removal Of Amd64 Packages

Apr 8, 2015

I am working on a project which targets both 32 and 64 bit architectures at the moment. My system is amd64. I added i386 architecture using this guide. However, my problem is

Code: Select allapt-get install package-name:i386

prompts the removal of currently installed packages (amd64 arch.) which is the problem.

Code: Select allReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:

[Code] ...

Some of the packages I am talking about are


Now, as of now, I want to carry out the compilation using 32 bit libraries, however, I really don't want to install 64bit version of all prerequisites each time I switch the compilation from 32 bit to 64. Is there any way to have both architectures at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Apt/dpkg: Segregate User Application Packages From System Packages?

Dec 2, 2010

Is there a way using dpkg or apt-get to segregate user application packages from system packages? What I envision is an /apps directory structure that can be the install target for selected packages so not to "clutter" the storage areas for the system administration files/packages - maybe even with permissions set so that (a GROUP of) users could install packages on an Ubuntu server w/o SysAdmin guidance. This could also allow 1)system upgrades with or w/o including these packages, and 2)the sharing of /apps (via NFS) among common Ubuntu systems. Is this doable using the dpkg or apt maintenance tools?

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade Leftover Packages - 176 F13 Packages Remaining

Nov 17, 2010

I recently upgraded from F13 to F14 using "preupgrade". This is the first time I've used preupgrade. So far, F14 is running OK. There are some leftovers from F13 and I'm wondering if this is correct.

Q1: There are 176 F13 packages remaining. [alfrugal@localhost Documents]$ rpm -qa | grep fc13 | wc -l 176 Is this OK? FWIW, after the upgrade, I ran "package-cleanup --orphans" as recommended by the "preupgrade" page on the Fedora Project wiki.

Q2: Also, my GRUB menu was correctly updated for F14, but it still contains the three entries it had for F13. Is it normal for the preupgrade process to require the user to clean up the obsolete entries from the GRUB menu?

OpenSUSE :: Yast Exits After Install Of Packages?

Nov 18, 2010

Is it possible to configure Yast Software Manager module so that it does not completely exit when done installing a package? It get's annoying to search for a package and install it, the software manager exits, you then have to reopen it, install another etc. a few minutes later.

Seems this would be a config option, but if so I can't seem to find it.

OpenSUSE Install :: YaST Selects Packages On Its Own?

Jul 17, 2010

I'm not talking about YaST auto-resolving dependencies for me or the auto-updater checking for patches... sometimes, when I start up the Software Management portion of YaST, there will be a package or two marked for installation. Today, for example, it wants ksshaskpass. This is 11.2 64-bit. (I know I'm bucking the trend of 11.3 questions, but I'm hoping you can overlook that.)

Is this behavior expected? I don't think I ever noticed it prior to 11.2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Add Packages / Add Founts / Set Up Desktop

May 10, 2011

I have been using Linux for a few years, but am new to openSuse. I can use Ubuntu and Debian, but Suse is quite different. So my difficulties may seem childish. Problem 1 - Adding packages: I was able to download scim, because I know the name of the package. However, I cannot add languages. I have the extra languages c.d., but Yast will not install anything. I have a list of folders on the disc, but Yast thinks they are empty. I checked the package download area of Suse's web-site, but searching for languages turns up nothing. Apparently one needs to know the name of the packages. Is there a simple way to download packages? I should not need to know the name of every package. I found Chinese in the package manager (I have yet to try it, so do not yet know if I have what I want.), but cannot find Latin. I am not worried about German, because it should be part of the basic system.

Problem 2 - Adding simple things: I also cannot add founts. Does Suse have a permissions system like Debian and Ubuntu? I need to add these founts for the documents I work on. How do I gain access to the user foulders? With Debian and Ubuntu it is alt+F2, then, gksu nautilus. Does Suse use something similar? Problem 3: This problem is embarrassing. After freshly installing the system I played with desktop customisation. The result is strange. The only way I can have the cute green screen with the chameleon logo is with the "virus" theme. Ugly; do not want it. If I set it up the way it originally was with "image" I can only have a solid colour of my choice. Are there bugs in the system or am I hopeless?

OpenSUSE :: Restrict Zypper To Install Only Updates And No New Packages?

Feb 23, 2011

I'm a long time Linux user but new to Suse. I got a couple of questions I was hoping someone might shed some light to. I'm running OpenSuse 11.3. -After running 'zypper update' I see it's listing a couple of new packages it wants to install (flash-player among them). I thought update would mean update existing packages, not install random new packages. Is there a way to restrict zypper to install only updates and no new packages?

-I'm trying to find a repository that has the complete courier mail server (smtp, webmail and all the rest, not just the imap server) but I'm having no luck. Anyone know where I could get it? I know I can build it myself. -Is there a way to automatically download all available updates so that they can later be installed interactively?

OpenSUSE Install :: Don't Have To Completely Reinstall And Set Up All Packages And Stuff Again?

Sep 3, 2010

I've installed open suse with no problems however I accidentally put my root folder on an external HD. I want to have my root on a partition of my main drive so I can continue to dual boot windows. Is there a way to move root so I don't have to completely reinstall and set up all my packages and stuff again.I assume to do this I need to use the installation disk again and fix it before boot up but should I partition my main drive first. I'm being intentionally cautious as there is data I'd rather not lose on there.

OpenSUSE Install :: What's The Point Of Installing Obsolete Packages

Jul 2, 2011

I made a network install of a new 11.4 system yesterday. It went all fine, but I was suprised that at the end of the installation some 80 packages required updating.

So what's the point in installing obsolete versions first? A significant amount of time is wasted downloading and installing packages, which will be replaced shortly thereafter. Of course that's the way it works for a media-based installation, because one does not want to create, test and release new installation media everytime a package is updated. But in network installation all it would take is to use the repository with the updated version.

The only argument I could imagine is that an updated package could make the installation fail. Installation with original packages has gonew through some QA. Well yes, of course it's all software, so everything can fail. But when you install updates into your production system there is always the theoretical risk that they contain a fatal bug causing damage. For a new installation the damage would be much smaller, should the installation fail because an untested combination of package version happens not to install cleanly.

I have an HP dv7-1285dx. First, I attempted to install openSuse 11.2 KDE via the live disk. A small ways through the installation, I was told that the image could not be properly copied to the disk. Then, I attempted to do it via the standard DVD, and a small ways through the installation I kept receiving errors saying that the packages could not be found, and gives me the option to skip. I can't install unless I skip all 600-something of them.
