i've always used the X11GL repo to install compiz and emerald because i've never managed tu make compiz run using X11:Compiz repo. But since some day the X11GL at Index of /repositories/X11:/XGL repo has disappeared. What's happened? How can i install emerald and its themes now?
I searched the forum with various terms and didn't find anything, so my apologies if this is a common and/or newbie problem.It seems that when I have a USB driveplugged in to switch the files around, those that I delete are still taking up space. I first noticed it with a Chinese MP3 player and thought it was the player being crappy. I could still play all the songs that were supposedly gone. Today, I noticed it with a little thumb drive that I've had for years. I plugged it into my husband's computer running winXP, and the files showed up in a weird, unusable form. I was able to delete them for real.
Just installed OpenSUSE 11.4 a few days ago and am totally updated.
When in KDE, if I create a new, empty folder using Dolphin or Konsole (Or from any application within KDE) and then log out, the folder is deleted. If I create a folder and put some data in it, then it stays.
When I ctrl+alt+f1 to a console and create an empty folder, then it stays, so its just inside KDE where this happens.
Im not even sure how to troubleshoot this. I checked dmesg and some log files, but don't see anything of interest.
I installed OpenSUSE 11.4 into a Virtual machine and it did the same thing, so this doesn't appear to be an isolated issue; sounds like a pretty major bug. I wanted to get some ideas from here before I submit a bug report, however.
I was trying to delete a printer software package and some how managed to do away with part of my system.Guess I clicked on something I shouldn't have.Before I realized what was going on about a page of deleting this and that zipped by before I aborted.Is there a way of finding out what was deleted so I can put it back together?The stuff in my home folder is still intact, so if I have to do a new install it's no biggy.Just hoping I wouldn't have to.Had to reinstall dolphin just to see that the home folder was still there and intact.
I have accidentally deleted the last desktop activity for Plasma. I cannot access the cashew and right clicking on the desktop does nothing. I can still see and use my panels just as I would before but there is nothing that I can put on the desktop do I get a desktop activity back from where there is nothing?
I usually use the default KDE desktop with a few changes. I deleted the bar the bottom of screen. I can't get those setting right. There's no undo function. I was able to recreate some things. I can't get the icons into right position. Also, I can't get the display for all programs or get the right wigits running . I need someone to walk me through it. Else, I'll just reinstall suse(11.3)
A friend of mine had inportant files on his windows 7 PC. the pc took a virus, he took it with some "experts" wich happily DELTED the partition and reinstalled W7, and apps, WITHOUT backing up his files.
Ibe faced similar cases before, and on windows ibe used Recuva with mixed resutls, but. Is there an application in linux i can install on my opensuse 11.4 box to do the same task? Can you guys recommend good linux software (available for suse) that will do this? I read about "TestDisk", but ibe never used it.
I have Fedora 13 in a VPS. I cannot work with yum. I got this error: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try # yum list Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again.
I am trying to configure DNS on my CentOS 5. When i am trying to install BIND using YUM, i am getting the following error.

It mentioned bug report but I don't know where that is. I'll try later.
Today I installed Fedora12 from the DVD, so this is my first contact with all of you. The last years I ran very well with gentoo, but the time for system maintenance got to big the last few times I updated the system, so I decided to change and here am I. The Problem: My system is newly installed from the DVD and I was trying to run the first update, but got the following errormassage by KPackageKit:
Code: Error Type: Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 710, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args, args[1:])
It occured after informing me about the amount of packages that need to be updated and a message about some dependencies that have to be newly installed. At the moment I'm a bit lost about what to do. Also I realy don't know which system-information would be useful - let me know and I will answer.
I installed Fedora 13 in my new system from DVD image. Now I want to update all repositories. I coul'nt update. error message as below: Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again
I installed FC10, but do not find xfig (command not found)..then I do password:xxxxxxx, and then do the following $yum install xfig, and I get the following error Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit [URL].. [Errno 14] HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: adobe-linux-i386.
yum is completely broken. I cannot install or update any software. yum is always throwing:
Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-12&arch=x86_64 error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 7 - "" Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again I have tried globally to disable the gpg check as stated in other threads. I have no proxies or such in yum.conf or in my bashrc. If I manually click on the link it will resolve in firefox so I am sure it is not my net connection per se, it seems yum or curl is adding a : to the end of the url thats why it wont resolve properly.
I have done a yum clean all , which didnt really help either. reinstalling the rpmfusion repos isnt an option either as I start getting curl errors in the terminal. I am really at a loss here and am completely out of ideas as I cant install any updates or software , at first I thought the repositories were having problems with the holidays but this has been going on for 4 days now. /var/log/messages isnt showing anything either.
I updated my up to date F12 to F13. I have what must be a 640X480 display with no way to change it. I get an error:
"Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: pgdg90. Please verify its path and try again" on all Yum commands so no yum installs are possible. I don't have the /usr/bin/GLX command So theAIGLX doesn't work.
I did a clean install of Fedora 12 (AMD64) two days ago and I have been trying to update the packages. But it won't work. I keep getting these errors. I tried both Software Update and command-line utility to update. code...
I just did a fresh install of F14 using a Live USB. I can't do a yum update, I'm getting Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.I've done a yum clean all and I've tried coping the .repos from another F14 system that's working fine.
I recently registered a Red Hat 5 machine. It registered ok and was able to do a yum update. Now, yum update gives this error:
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security There was an error communicating with RHN. RHN support will be disabled. Error communicating with server. The message was:
Temporary failure in name resolution Could not retrieve mirrorlist <red hat mirror url here>error was [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')> [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')> Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmforge. Please verify its path and try again I can ssh into the machine, and I can open up Firefox and browse the web. I have another Red Hat 5 machine set up and working fine, and I've checked that the /etc/yum.conf, /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date, .bash_profile, and /etc/hosts files are all the same (except for hostnames and ip addresses). I'm fairly new to Red Hat, and I don't know what other configuration files to check.
