My KPackageKit is not downloading any update, it shows updates, I click apply, I authenticate, then it asks me to accept an agreement, after which it returns to an empty KPackageKit (as if there were no updates). If I open it again, there are the possible updates again (naturally, since it didn't download anything).
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 currently mirror the updates repository to my computer using rsync. I was wondering if I could save space and bandwidth by only rsyncing the .delta.rpm files? Are there any disadvantages to this or does zypper/YAST handle updates just fine with it?
Ubuntu 10.10 did download the updates when first installed but has never updated since. When I try manually I get the message, failed check internet connection which is working OK. How can I get around this.
I Installed Ubuntu 9.10 on April 12th On April 14th I got a screen message advising me to download and install 257 update programs.The download got up to at least program 241. That�s the last one I remember seeing.Then the screen brightened for about one second and I got a message saying that Ubuntu had to be restarted to finish downloading.I restarted and this is the screen I got.
I, like many people, don't have access to fast internet at home (only 56k). That makes downloading the hundreds of mb of data impossible. But, like pretty much all of those same people, I do have access to local libraries. So, I would like to know the best way to download updates at a library, then come back and install them with ubuntu.The version is 10.04 32-bit, and is 100% stock (just installed from CD), and I want to bring it up-to-date.
I have noticed that when installing Jessie, the graphical installer downloads updates to packages while installing if connected via Ethernet to the Internet. Remaining disconnected solves this problem. Is there any way to avoid this and install without downloading files other than apt lists?
I'm a bit of a noob at Ubuntu (I can use the terminal and stuff though), and I want to know if I can specify a custom server for downloading updates and packages.I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and I want to use Adam Internet's FileArena server: [URL]... It's not listed in the list of servers and I want to know how I can add it or use it(because downloads from there don't count towards my download allowance).
I'm currently using ubuntu 9 for 4 years, then I decided to upgrade to ubuntu 10.4 then after wasting long hours of downloading updates and reinstall of new packages my computer request to restart the machine. after the boot sequence of grub my computer hangs up and no display at all, I tried to select different kernel but it won't help me at all what's the possible error after upgrading
I recently installed Suse 11.4 (running KDE) and my first experiences with the new updater are not great. It seems to stall, require a lot of intervention, fail, and generally not behave nicely. I would much prefer to use zypper manually as I used to but can't find anywhere to disable this applet or process in KDE. Is there any way of disabling this so that the process and systray icon never start?
The package manager runs when a user clicks on a .rpm file automatically. I tried clicking on it from a normal user dolphin window and it opened up but since it can't install to a /something directory, I had to run it as su. So I try to open dolphin as su and then click on my file. I see the package editor starting up (bouncy icon and a space in the panel) but it never actually pops up a window. Now when I click on the file from either user this is happening. What's going on? Is this a bug?
**update, it popped up from normal user after like 10x attempts and it said that the repository already exists and this is an unexpected error. what does that mean? what errors are "expected"?
I can't get KPackageKit run successfully even once. Every-time I get the same message that can't correct the software origin as following:
While I can update the software through zypper in the terminal window, I also get a warning message to say some package will NOT be update as following :
I already implement the one-click solution to thread:Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide, except that I got another warning message when I click to switch system packages to the version on packman repository as following:
Another question is every time I click the accept button of the YaST2 window, it will install the packages and quit directly and never give any confirmation of the result. Is this normal?
The last question is when I use Amarok or qmmp to play music which be shared via Samba on my homeserver, the system always copy the music file to the local folder,/var/tmp, and then can begin to play rather than play it immediately by stream. Is this also normal?
I am having an issue with KPackageKit, actually 2 issues but one makes it unusable. The major issue is that when I go to apply the updates I get the following error message (at least here are the details of the message)
I do not run my connection through a proxy and my internet works correctly. This is on a laptop I upgraded using zypper from 11.3 to 11.4 (I did the same with a desktop which does not have this issue). zypper refresh successfully refreshes the repositories, and the various Yast repo tools all work correctly. Additionally after I am shown the updates and am prompted for root pw, the packages will no longer show up for a while, each time it tries to look for updates the message comes through but they will show up after a while again. The other issue I have is that it requests my pw multiple times, this also happens on my desktop that actually will update. I get prompted twice, they are immediate and back to back. This one is a little minor annoyance but there should be no reason that it needs to make this request multiple times.
On my 11.3 KDE if I leave the computer alone to download something and come back to check after a while I sometimes find that torrents or usenet downloads have been stopped long ago and kdeapplet displays the wrong time, anything from half and hour to ten hours late. I usually open NTP configuration screen, check if server is accessible and okay out of it and everything goes back to normal by itself, time is corrected and downloads resumed. What could be the reason for stopping downloads and how can I correct this problem? Is NTP the cause or just another symptom of a deeper problem? NTP is set to "now and on boot", interval is set to 5 min - I think those are all default settings.
How do I stop YaST from downloading the repodata every time I open the software manager?Even if I have opened it 5 minutes before, YaST still downloads the repomd.xml again.This is also a real pain if I am offline and trying to install an rpm, because I have to wait for it to realise that it can't access the data before it allows me to skip the auto-refresh.By the time that happens I could have installed the software already if I was using a debian or windows based system.
By default, when zypp does an update, it downloads a deltarpm and applies it immediately, during which time the internet connection is open and unused. Can I make zypp apply the deltarpms all at the end, only after it has downloaded all of them? I'm used to this sort of behavior on Fedora/yum, and it reduces the window for which I must keep my internet connection open.
I though i would try out Clamav. After installation and a reboot, As su I issued freshclam.ClamAV update process started at Mon Apr 18 22:29:22 2011Downloading main.cvd [ 72%] the time at that point is 23:32 for 19 MB The download is so slow that I wonder if Clamav is really meant to be used.
I just got a popup from KPackagekit saying: Code: Distribution upgrade available. Fedora-12 Fedora 12 (Constantine) Start upgrade now Do I want to do this? Is it safe to do so? Can I roll back afterwards? Is there a better way to upgrade?
Does anyone know where to get documentation for KPackageKit? I've searched on KDEs web site and this forum without success. Also on Fedora.org and googling but nothing so far.I recently loaded this distro (F13) to try it out after using mostly openSUSE and some of the minimal distros. I'm finding there is quite a learning curve, even I started in linux with RedHat 5.1.
I have removed IcedTea packages but I am unable to run Sun Java after downloading the recommended version from sun website as per the instructions at Installing Sun's Java on openSUSE - openSUSE.I do a lot of web games and need sun java installed.In addition, I need help with -
1. Installing fdisk or similar. 2. Read and write for ntfs partition on same hard disk. I've Samba but SUSE can't see 2 ntfs partitions on same hard disk. 3. Gnome/ LXDE desktop install. 4. Testdisk install. 5. Gparted install. 6. Convert .deb packages to .rpm and install those. I used to convert .rpm to .deb in Ubuntu with alien tool.
Whenever I do anything in Zypper, there is always a huge lag before it starts downloading a file, but then it downloads at normal speed. I think this has to do with the fact that it is now trying to download from multiple servers, and I would like to turn that off. Where do I go for that?
I'v downloaded the new versions of suse many times. I average 3 to 4+ times before it's successful, bad downloads(bad checksum) or download stops for no reason. I'v used direct link and bittorrent. Bittorrent takes 2-3 times as long. So, I usually use direct link. I can do the download in about 6-8 hours. The first time, it stopped at 334 megs, using direct link. Using bittorrent, it took about 16 hours. I got a bad checksum. Is there a way I fix the file without downloading it again? Suse 10.4
