OpenSUSE Install :: SneeikerNetting OS Online Updates?

Apr 11, 2011

I have an OS 11.4 system running on a network which prevents me from using the publicly available update repositories. Is there a way to mirror the update repositories onto a flash drive and updating from there?

Is this as simple as using wget to mirror certain directories on the public repository?

OpenSUSE :: Online Update Not Working After 11.2 Package Updates?

Mar 26, 2010

Since applying a number of updates using the online update tool in Yast, the online update tool can no longer contact the software repositories which were configured in Yast.If i browse to the URL which is configured within the software repo config tool, I can see the updates & folders fine in Firefox.Zypper seems to do the same thing & just sits there if I do zypper update.I see a number of other people in this forum have had the same problems, any ideas as I couldn?t find a resolution?

OpenSUSE Install :: Online Updates For 11. 2 And 11.0 Corrupted Yast And Zypper

May 9, 2010

Using 11.2 64 bit on Amd 3200 64I installed 4 Days ago After running a online update yesterday with Yast which was completely finished, starting the machine today, I wanted to add a program Yast reports "UI Syntacs Error Couldn't load plugin qt_pkg" Using 11.0 on P2800 I run an online update 3 days ago. Today I started, the updater reported updates. When I accepted I got the error message "DBus error :Unable to get transaction id from packagekit." Disabling the updater, starting Yast, I got "error initializing the repositorys.Parse error." and "UI Syntacs Error Couldn't load plugin qt_pkg" On both machines I gave the command rpm --rebuilddb On the 11.2 Yast started without error.

I wanted to instal a program when the download was completed I got again the message "UI Syntacs Error Couldn't load plugin qt_pkg"On the 11.0 Yast installed a small Program without error.When I opened Yast online update, I got the "parse error again. When I say o.k. there, Updates are shown and installed. However using the updater kit it reports still "DBus error : Unable to get transaction id from packagekit". How can I fix the DBUS error of the 11.0 (On an 9.0 I had to deinstall Rug and thereafter run only Yast) I can deal with the Parser error myself, checking all Repositories should do it)

OpenSUSE :: Online Update Applet Running In Order To Be Notified Of Updates?

Sep 8, 2010

In OpenSuSE 11.2 YaST -> Online Update Configuration I can configure how often the system should check for updates (i.e. daily, weekly). Does this operate independently from the Online Update Applet(kupdateapplet)? The reason I ask is that the Applet doesn't always seem to work correctly. However, if the system will check for online updates automatically regardless of the Applet, perhaps this isn't an issue. If I can avoid messing with the Applet, that would be great.

OpenSUSE Network :: Error In Repo Initialization While Running Online Updates

Mar 18, 2011

Earlier I have no problems when I install opensuse. After installation the network runs and I can run online updating in yast for the system. But since a few version it doesn't work after installation and I don't know why. I think maybe the errors could happen because I have no
internet connection. Today I install 11.4 and get this message when I want to run online updates in yast.

There is an error in the repository initialization
'repo-update' [URL]
[repo-update URL]
Repository is not cached
I think this problem stars with 11.1 or 11.2.

Everything was OK until Ive made update (yast/software/online update <-- BTW kupdate applet isn't working, just update bar appear and stuck on 0%). i haven't installed any additional packages, only the defaults (KDE desktop). after update only fail safe option is working (booting normally and looks like normal desktop, no visual differences between normal and fail safe booting, if there should been any). When I've tried to find solution for this problem, very ofter answers were -> graphic drivers problem (im using ati hd 4670 AGP <-- yea, AGP . well when i start normal boot green screen with lizard logo appear, then screen goes black for a second or two, then the green screen come again, and after another few second screen goes black permanently with working hdd for 30-40 second (hdd led blinking) BTW i have windows7 pro (booting fine) on this machine too, it was installed as first system on hd0,0. opensuse was installed on stand alone PATA disk (secondary EIDE master, ODD on slave). how to gather info which u all need to get this problem more detailed. PS> sorry for my English, its not my native language.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Install Any Updates?

Jun 27, 2010

Automatic updates fail because:

PackageKit Error cannot-remove-system-package: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: package libpackagekit-glib12-0.5.1-3.7.i586 is not installed

Manually updating from yaST gives the same error. However, I cannot find the above packge available for installation. i found the following link in the "Yast2-ncurses broken?" thread, but it doesnt automatically install, and I am unsure whether it will work with ver 11.2:

Index of /pub/gnu/ncurses

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Select Individual Updates For Installation?

May 3, 2010

I appear to be unable to select individual updates for installation anymore from the Yast Online update screen. I use this to install updates manually on 11.1. But everytime I think I've chosen an update to install, all the updates listed get installed, and not just the one I've chosen. For example I just chose a "Fuse security update" to install and clicked the "Install" button. Nothing further happens until I click "Apply". Then all patches listed under the "All available" listing get applied. How do I just apply the patches that I want to ?

OpenSUSE Install :: RPM Repository / Database Corruption - Unable To "Online Update" Or "Software Manage" The System

Jul 26, 2010

I manage a computer remotely in a different country. The last upgrade I did (to openSUSE 11.2) seems to have had one issue that I didn't work out until later. I am unable to "Online Update" or "Software Manage" the system. Whenever I do I get the following error:


I have been through a number of attempted fixes via the thread 434687-software-repository-corruption but have not managed to resolve the issue. There is no one at the location that could repeat the "update" to hopefully fix the issue that way. I have a copy of the 11.2 DVD iso file on the remote computer. Is there some way that I can get the repository DB rebuilt or reinstalled so that I can then install other software and do Online Updates? Whatever I try has to be doable with the system running so that I can OpenVPN connect and issue commands remotely.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Run Eve Online

May 2, 2011

i am using VMware player, on it i have dedicated 40gb of my hdd and 1gb of my ram for Ubuntu 10.04. i installed eve-online using WINE 1.2 and followed some instructions from a thread of eve online forums [URL]

Quote: to avoid some random crashes launch eve with the command: wine explorer /desktop=EVE1,1920x1200"C:Program FilesCCPEVEeve.exe" this emulates a desktop in wine. replace 1920x1200 with the resolution of your monitor

i changed the res to 800x600 and attempted to load eve, the splash window loads up and then nothing, the splash window dissapears and i am left with the background of the WINE UI (in which case i cannot close the wine window either) i then attempted to find out my graphics card and i cannot find it using

$ lspci
$ lspci -v
$ lspci -v | less

i then tried to hardware drivers, in which case there are none shown from system>administration>hardware drivers. I then attempted to change my screen resolution or modify my display settings in which case i got Quote: It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead? Quote: You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

at this time i will say my graphics card is a geforce 8600GTS 256mb let me know if i am missing information which will help resolve the problem, but be warned, if u require the info, u are litterally going to need to spell out to me what info and how to get it, as i am not used to commands

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Stay Online/problems Logging On?

Sep 15, 2010

What happens is that it seems the system has problems logging onto the wireless network. Once I have tipped in the router access code it sometimes logs on immediately, but most of the time it keeps searching for a long time before logging on if at all.Once I have a connection established it is very unstabile. After a few minutes it logs off and starts searching for the network again, asking for the access code every 2 or 3 minutes. Sometimes it finds the network again and sometimes not.As you can probably understand, this significantly reduces the euphoric enthusiasm over having sacked mr. Bill Gates from my life. I should mention at this point that I am a regular pc user with little indepth knowledge and experience so any advice has to be like teaching a bonobo monkey rocket science.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Know About The New Updates

May 5, 2010

1) I thought linux (or Ubuntu) would tell me somehow when there are new updates I need to install, like Windows does. But I never see any indication. I used this software name "Ubuntu Tweak" to check for update and found 32 new packages. Why wasn't I told about these? Did I accidentally turn something off and I need to turn it back on? Or do I have to configure something special?

2) How can I find out what features or bug fixes these updates provide. For example, one of the files was named "linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic". I'm guessing this is part of the core system. I would really like to know what changed in this and the other 31 updates.

Whenever I try to check for updates, it will say updating cache, but then it will say Failed to download repository information Check your internet connection.

I'm connected to the internet fine, so I don't know what to do. Also, at the top right corner next to the power button on the top panel, there is a message thing saying "The update information is outdated"

OpenSUSE :: Online Video Playback, BBC IPlayer?

Feb 15, 2010

I previously posted about noob attempts with Google Earth Problems with Google Earth - openSUSE Forums and discovered my setup 3Ghz Intel p4 i386 with RADEON X300(PCIE) and RADEON X300SE as shown in YaST Hardware Information may not be compatible with linux/opensuse. I've attempted some of the suggestions and either I've had difficulties following instructions (noob alert!) or the solution didn't work for another reason. any offers on improving online playback, in particular; should I get a new graphics card, what would be my best option with limited funds (<50) when I want to be able to watch streams online smoothly but not play games/edit video. Efficient rather than powerful?

OpenSUSE :: After Updating Online 11.3 KDE Is Not Working Anymore

Oct 4, 2010

After a lot of work I succeeded in making my Icon 225 Mobile Broadband working under Linux, so I immediately took advantage of this by updating my system.But unfortunately not everything went well. I have to say something:in Linux when you solved a problem another one pops up. And this is what happened to me. The first problem was the following error message: PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium [URL]

It seems that in the Online update system there is a error: or the address is wrong or something is not working as it should be. Anyway I got over it and the system started to download the updates and so on. At the end the system asked me to reboot and I did it. Unfortunately a cold shower was waiting me : the KDE interface did not work anymore, the only thing I could see was something like a fog all around the video. The mouse cursor was a dark square. I was still able to hear the welcome sound so I deduced that only the graphic interface was corrupted. I rebooted again and when the system show me the booting choices:

1) Desktop opensuse 11.3-
2) Failsafe opensuse 11.3-
3) windows 1
4) windows 2
5) Floppy

I chose this time the second one (I think it is like a safe mode)and fortunately it worked but the system looked like having lost brightness (I think this choice change the card driver). Now I do not know why the KDE inrface got corrupted, because I download everything from the opesuse website, so no strange repository has been installed. I checked in the little manual supplied with the DVD and I found the following suggestion: If the KDE interface got corrupted please try to remove the cache files of the KDE desktop using the following command rm -rf /tmp/kde-user /tmp/ksocket-user

OpenSUSE Install :: Online Update In Virutal Box?

On my work computer I installed Opensuse11.2 in VirtualBox. However online update or installs which are downloaded through YAST2 are not working. I get the message "Failed to download media ....." and that's it. I configured the proxy and when using the test proxy button it tells me that the proxy works OK. If I copy the link from yast into Firefox I get to the site of the repositories without problems only Yast cannot connect. Neither from the GUI nor from the console. I had no problems with Opensuse11.0 and previous versions. WHat is the problem?
