OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Initialize The Software Repositories
Jul 15, 2010
im using a toshiba satellite u305-s2804 laptop with windows 7 installed it has 2gb ram .intel centrino dual core processor,160 gb hd ., what i wanna do is dual boot between windows and opensuse 11.3 which i downloaded today . i went ahead and set up a partion for the linux to be installed on (the space i gave linux is 25 gb) . but during the installation i got this error
failed to initialize the software repositories .aborting the instillation.
The red updater icon alerted me to about a dozen patches, which started to install, then halted with an error: Download failure from download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss. When I try to update repositories, the same error recurs for that repo and also for .../oss and download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/,
If I attempt to "register for support to get update repository," clicking on Configure Now and Next produces the same three error messages: "Failed to download", one for each repository. The screen then returns to Registration, with another error message "an error occurred while connecting to the server". Clicking on the Detail button show exactly "ERROR:"
This AMD desktop machine with this install of 11.2 has updated many times in the last few weeks. Has something changed? The update servers do respond to a ping, so they are up and apparently I have connectivity.
I have 2 NVIDIA card intalled - GT 240 and Geforce 9500.After updating by repo kernel to ver 188.8.131.52-0.5.1 and Nvidia driver by to ver 270.41.06 X server cant start

So for now only dismounting one of cards gives working X server.
my sound works when i boot up but as soon as i play a couple of files with VLC video or audio it doesn't matter the sound stops and comes up with an error saying: ALSA version problem:VLC failed to re-initialize your sound output device. Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.22 or higher to fix this issue.Potential ALSA version problem:VLC failed to initialize your sound output device (if any).Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or higher to try to fix this issue. I found latest version on net and installed and yast said install fail version already installed my sound device is HDA Intel (ALC C880 Analog)
have an OpenSuSE 11.4 (Linux 184.108.40.206-0.5-desktop) with XBMC (10.1) installed.During installation of SuSE, I've created a user called "xbmc" and enabled autologin for this user. After XBMC have been installed I added the following to /home/xbmc/.xinitrc - "exec /usr/bin/ck-launch-session /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone -fs"... so far so good - everything is perfectly fine..... or at least almost - when trying to play some musik I get the message "Failed to initialize audio device, Check your Audio Settings"... but if I close XBMC, log in to Gnome as root, open a terminal an su to user "xbmc" and start xbmc from commandline it works if I choose "Internal Analog Audio" in System -> System -> Audio Output. Now the spooky/funny parts appears... I check the options in Audio Output I see the following:
Defaults iec958 hdmi HDA Intel Defaults
When returning to auto-login - it stops working again... By the way - to be sure that it wasn't a rights-problem, I ended up changing the UID for the "xbmc"-user to "0" to ensure root-privilegies
I recently installed 11.4 32bit on my computer at my summer home. I carry a DVD with all my /home data. Then today I noticed that all my repositories are labeled "11.3" repositories. Everything works. Here is the output from "zypper lr -d"...
# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type | URI | Service
What is the correct method of moving to the 11.4 repositories?
I have the problem that for working properly my soundcard needs sort of re-initialisation after every reboot (11.3, 64 bit). I have to change a setting in the sound module of yast that causes the yast to rerun its final steps. What is not working otherwise is audio playback from a usb TV-stick (recording is no problem, same as playing an audio/video file). any idea what might be the problem? how to call the final steps of the sound module of yast from the command line, I could at least put that call into boot.local to avoid having to call yast.
Everytime I log into Gnome Desktop I get this message : failed to initialize a HAL contextHere is the exact error message when I look into auth.logQuote:gnome-keyring-daemon: failed to initialize a HAL context: (null)gnome-keyring-daemon: Scheduling hal init retry
I just finnished my slackware upgrade to current (as you may know from my previous post), and now i am facing another problem.When i type startx i get error:Failed to initialize the GLX module,...,try reinstalling the NVidia driverno screens foundOkay, i thought i should reinstall the Nvidia drivers..And then when i ran the driver install file, i got another error:Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'....Kernel module load errorWhat should i do now ? Nothing works! New kernel
I am running Suse 11.1 64bit, with KDE, recently I received a pop up on my screen, "something about update problems", I used Yast 2 and selected online Update and it couldn't find updates for Nvidia and froze at that point. I dis-enabled that repository and refreshed all of the remaining Repositories individually and it seemed to work. I then went to the repositories listing and selected "Add" and selected "community" repositories and received the following: WARNING Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. What is my problem? How do I acquire the list of community repositories? I can live with out the Nvidia repository for now but would eventually like to get it back.
I receive following error when trying to enable strigi. "strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to installation problem" I have searched internet, obviously not good enough, and i have found nothing. Nothing that would work. i have tried installing openjdk-devel as suggested, soprano. And still nothing. I have same problems on both boxes running Fedora 12.
Code: Failed to initialize Failed to initialize packaging backend This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously. under more details i get:
Code: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root. I get to terminal, and as a root I try yum-complete-transaction, but it just says there are no unfinished transactions left. I tried to update thru yum, but this is what I get:
Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.
I installed Blueman & paired my headset successfully but I get this error message when I connect my headset, "Failed to initialize pulseaudio bluetooth module. Bluetooth audio over pulseaudio will not work". When I go to Pulse Audio Volume Control, it's not showing in my hardware list.
Every time I start up my Ubuntu 10.04 install, instead of the graphical login screen, I get an error dialog stating the following:
Code: Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this. Also in the dialog are several lines of text:
Code: (EE) <date and time> Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details. ***Aborting*** Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.I'm not sure what it means by "kernel log," or where any error logs might be saved. Any tips? Perhaps if I can find such error logs, posting them will help diagnose the problem.
If it matters, I have 2 monitors, an NEC AccuSync 120 CRT and a Samsung BX2440X LCD. I use them in Xinerama mode with the Nvidia drivers under my Ubuntu 9.10 install and have no problems there. To get normal graphics under 10.04, I have to start up in low-graphics mode, kill X server, reinstall the Nvidia proprietary drivers, and restart the X server. Then I have to do it all over again after the next restart, every time I want to run 10.04.It's very annoying.Also possibly relevant: I use the latest 32-bit Nvidia drivers for 10.04, version 256.53.I've found a few other threads where people had problems similar to this, but nothing exactly like my situation nor any real resolution so far. I hope it can be fixed, because there are other things about 10.04 that I really like.
I am recently getting a very weird error on my Webmin. The result of this problem I suspect is I am no longer able to log into my Maia Mailguard which is my Spam Viewer.

The rsync module "opensuse-full" which worked well so far seems currently broken. It tries to mirror a huge number of additional stuff (factory?) but fails with "permission denied". Any place where I could report this?Command:
I am trying to install openSuse 11.2 from netinstall disk into a vmware virtual machine under vmware server 2 (free edition). The installation process starts ok, but later i receive a warning indicating that the opensuse repository can not be found. (download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss /)I have checked the network setup and works perfectly, also i can ping download.opensuse.org from console successfully.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 64 bit (2.6.31-20-generic) on a Z600 HP. My graphics card is Nvidia quadro NVS450. I am using the Ubuntu Nvidia driver 185.18.36. I am experiencing random, daily system freezes where the system has to be manually rebooted. After installing the crash dump packages I am now getting a crash dump file and it's clear the problem relates to my graphics card.
Is this a red herring or the cause of my problems: (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so (EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
The NVIDIA X Server Settings shows a message "Failed to query the GLX server vendor".

I have had this error for way too long. This post will be done in parts. I've had it for months now and I'd like to solve it. Every suggestion on linux forums, ubuntu forums, or some XYZ-linux blog seems to either work for just one boot or none at all. since I have updated my kernel on several occasions, I have also re-installed my NVIDIA kernel module by downloading the run file from NVIDIA's website. It also follows instructions from this post. I have installed the linux header files and the xorg-dev files from repository I have also tried this.
About 2 years ago I installed SUSE10.3 over the internet. Now the older repositories seem to have disappeared completely and I can't install any new software or little tools that I have missed. Is there any way to find 10.3 repositories somewhere or do I need to make a completely new installation every year?
I upgraded my system from 11.1 to 11.2, unfortunately after the upgrade there were no repositories set up. My notebook already has 11.2 on it, so I just copied the addresses from there and tried to update. Everytime I try zypper up, or from yast online-update. I wait for 10 min, and get an timeout error.
In this blog post I explain how to use "Install/Remove Software" to configure your repositories, which repositories you'll want to add, how to configure their priority, and updating your system with the correct versions. Musing Allowed: OpenSUSE 11.4: Repositories
I may eventually transfer some of this to the opensuse website, but I never expected it to take several days just to write this one blog post so it probably won't be soon. Still, I hope that it's helpful to opensuse 11.4 users and I wrote the post so that it was targeted to regular users primarily but also for those looking to see how the repositories have changed with the update to 11.4.
