I am trying to update Flash-player and yast2-core as prompted by today's update icon.
I am now faced with a loop that goes like this:
1) click on icon
2) window pops up, "2 packages selected"
3) click on apply, subwindow pops up
4) click on continue, "waiting for authentication"
5) after minutes of waiting, click on cancel, nothing happens
6) click on icon killing subwindow
7) now back to 2)
Aborting the process, starting at 1) again, same mess
I've found the following irritating problem with the default update applet in 11.4 (the one available in 'Software Management' in the KDE system settings):
Applet prompts to update the system, click Apply updates Accept licence agreement for flash player update
The applet goes back to listing the available updates - ie. it doesn't run the update The workaround is to untick the flash player update, run the other updates and then do the flash player update by itself.
I wanna install adobe flash player with yum but it fails to download, I think there may be something wrong with the repositories. Totally, could you give me a step by step instruction for installing the flash player.. i have already tried downloading it from adobe web site for linux and rpm (yum) but i couldn't install it. i also had NOKEY letter in the result
When I try to use wget or install anything that uses wget to install (flash player plugin), it fails, as my IT admin blocks direct access to IPs. I see wget takes the domain and resolves it's IP and then downloads (atleast thats how I get it?), and then I get "connection refused". Is it possible to force it use the domain and not the IP?
I did a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.1 i586. Everything worked fine. Then I used YaST2 Software Management to add a package. Worked fine. Then I did the Online Update to get the Installation up to date. Worked fine so far. I had to restart the Machine because of the Kernel Bugfix Update. Since then, the YaST2 Software Management is not working any more.
When I do start it, it starts the software manager, shows the "Search Phrase" and so on but when I enter a word and press "RETURN" the software manager immediately closes and takes me back to the YaST2 start screen. No messages, no warnings, nothing. With zypper I am able to install software but no longer within YaST2.
When I ran YaST | Software Management | Package | Update if newer Package Available this morning I get this message:
Code: #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2011-01-22 09:40:42 #### libxine1-codecs-1.1.19-2.pm.48.15.i586 requires libpostproc.so.51, but this requirement cannot be provided uninstallable providers: libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586[ftp.uni-erlangen.de-suse] [ ] break libxine1-codecs by ignoring some of its dependencies [ ] Following actions will be done: install libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586 despite the inferior architecture .....

What is it telling me? What should I do? What are the implications?
Now this is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04. I have done nothing but follow the steps on installing flash and ati driver from the main site. I have this problem on my desktop too which also has ATI graphics but with a AMD cpu. The desktop was upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 and the driver installed from ATI site like my laptop. This is really troubling because while the video is in full screen its using over 90% of my cpu?? Then my laptop gets really hot so I just switch back to Windows 7(which only uses 15%). Last time I had this problem was with the FGLRX proprietary drivers on Ubuntu 9.10 with the desktop.
Ubuntu 10.04 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz 4GB ATI HD 4650 1GB
I just installed Adobe Flash Player 10 and it says it's installed, when I go to firefox and Epiphany it still has flash player 9, Ive quited the browsers and everything Ive uninstalled/reinstalled still no luck.
Annoying problems I have with Yast2 Software Management?
1. Sometimes when starting Yast2 Software Management it fails to connect to the SW repositories. It happens inevitably (i.e. without exception) at the first attempt after a fresh boot up, and sometimes otherwise. I can only retry or abort, and retrying usually brings no success anyway. Is it perhaps due to a time-out somewhere?
2. If I click on the 'abort' button (see above) or 'cancel' in Yast otherwise, I inevitably (i.e. without exception) get the following type of error message Code: ** (<unknown>:4220): CRITICAL **: giop_thread_request_push: assertion `tdata != NULL' failed
Why our men cant workout a Free Flash Player which we can use? I am a free software enthusiast and not a programmer. Except NVIDIA driver and Adobe Flash Player I am use only free softwares for years. Not even Dual booting windows. All of our programmes are excellent ones and suited for almost all the computing needs of a user like me.
If I install flash player from yast or from "firefox plugins search", I only install version 10.0.*.*. Now I want to install version 10.1 beta. I downloaded package "flasplayer..." from adobe flash website. Then I extract it and run:
Afterward, I restart firefox and firefox requires install flashplayer . In some tutorials I see " Create symlink plugins to..." after "Install plugin ./libflashplayer.so...". In my computer I can't see this. I use opensuse 11.2 64bit. I try to install flash player 10.1 beta because I can't upload to mediafire Site. How to install 10.1 beta to solve this problem.
when I launch Yast2 - Online Update, I get an error during the repository refresh that it could refresh the repository.Since it's easier to copy-paste - here is the output from 'zypper ref' with the same error:
Code: Retrieving repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82' metadata [|] Failed to download ./repodata/cefcc9d56264aa169f70a53c560ffc39cb6af575-deltainfo.xml.gz
from http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.3/ A[code]...
About a week ago, I installed all the updates that popped up. I didn't actually look at what was being installed.
Since then, most of the items in the Yast2 Control centre won't run and just pop up an error box with the following (Firewall):
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error' what(): basic_string::_S_construct NULL not valid YaST got signal 6 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/firewall.ycp:20 /sbin/yast2: line 440: 19436 Aborted $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "::ffff:127.0.0.1:11.0".
Some time ago I did an automatic update and after that firefox, thunderbird and yast2 don't start. It's not that there is an error message or sth. Their icons just start jumping and after a while it stops without anything opened. I tried even removing the zilla directories and so on but it doesn't help. Of course I tried to simply reboot the machine and strangely enough, still does not work. Opera works though and I am ok with that, however yast2 not opening is more annoying. I do all the stuff that I want from the console, but of course that's not the point
This is the error message I got today when updating. patch:yast2-control-center-4200.noarch conflicts with yast2-control-center-qt.i586 < 2.20.2-1.3.1 provided by yast2-control-center-qt-2.19.3-6.1.i586
when pdf files didn't load into firefox (problem still not solved), i tried to remove mozplugger, of which there were two instances in plug-ins. i first though flash-plugin was the culprit, so i removed it. but it wasn't. so i removed nsdiswrapper and then, i could remove both mozploggers (same version) i*still had icedtea, and itunes application detector, which i*found no way to remove since there is no file name associated with it in add-ons, plug-ins (rather weird, if you ask me).
so i reinstalled mosplogger, flash-plugin 32 bit and nsdiswrapper (i*don't remember in which order) and now not only pdf files don't load in firefox, or any viewer, but i can't watch flash even at videos, which is rather reliable flash-wise. i receive this error message:
you need to upgrade your adobe flash player to watch this video.
i*still have 2 mozplugger instances.
what's my next step? i*checked google for this error message and found nothing relevant.
p.s.: flash-plugin is, of course, the latest release:
On a fresh install (tried two new installs now) I'm getting an error when I try to go out to the update repositories after the install. I'm getting a "failed to download /suse/setup/descr/packages.DU.gz from [URL] It seems to get about 48% and just hangs there. This happens both if I try downloading updates during the install or if I try doing an on-line update after the system is up.
I am trying to install a program on my Linux system (Fedora core 5) but it fails because there is no fort77 compiler. I know that I have working ifort on my system, but I need fort77. It looks like that the program that I am trying to install can also be compiled with g77, but again this one is also missing. how I can get these compliers and get them work on my system.
The automatic updater cannot install bundle-lang-gnome 2233: "A protected system package cannot be removed" ("Ein geschtztes System-Paket kann nicht entfernt werden.")Detail info: "Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: package bundle-lang-gnome-extras-de-11.2-19.21.1.noarch is not installed"
how do you download an update or an upgrade (or whatever it's called) on a command line. for chromium internet browser. opened the computer and couldn't watch videos. i tried all the downloads available on adobe's website and all of them are on my "downloads" folder and when i click on any i just get stuff i don't understand and i simply find it easier to download through terminal.
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 ?
We have a small cluster of 20 HP systems, all running CentOS 5.3 in an NFS-root environment. Half are quad-socket, quad-core Xeon E7340 @ 2.40GHz (total 16 cores), the other half are 8-socket, quad-core Opteron 8354 (total 32 cores). All systems have a Mellanox Infiniband adapter ("Mellanox Technologies MT25418 [ConnectX VPI PCIe 2.0 2.5GT/s - IB DDR / 10GigE] (rev a0)")
With kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5, infiniband works fine on all systems.
With the update to kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 (and both types of node running the same NFS-root image), the 16-core Xeons still work fine. Infiniband no longer works on the 32-core Opterons. Specifically, either the ib0 interface fails to appear, or it does appear but when configured with an IP address, doesn't actually work. In either case, loading the IB kernel modules takes a long time, but I haven't instrumented the load script yet to see which module, if any, is at fault. More errors listed below.
However, if I tweak the BIOS of the 32-core systems to reduce the per-socket core count to 2 (so effectively 8-socket, dual-core, down to a total of 16 available cores), Infiniband starts working again. Putting it back to 32-cores makes it fail. Booting the older kernel makes it work again. In summary: old kernel, IB works on all systems. Newer kernel, IB only works on 16-core systems.
Updating the IB firmware from 2.5.0 to 2.7.0 (latest available) doesn't help. I also did a full 'yum update' to make sure that libmlx4, openibd all other associated packages were up-to-date. Doesn't help either.
Some errors that appear on 32-core nodes:
ib_query_port failed (-16) for mlx4_0 ib_query_port failed (-16) for mlx4_0 mlx4_core 0000:04:00.0: SW2HW_MPT failed (-16) mlx4_core 0000:04:00.0: SW2HW_MPT failed (-16)
