OpenSUSE :: Get Zypp To Apply Deltarpms After Downloading All Of Them?
Feb 2, 2011
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.
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?
in KDE:Factory:Desktop you can find a new version of kupdateapplet. In the changes you can find the following:
- dropped zypp plugin (bnc: 590192) - V 0.9.11
I have no access to 590192 in bugzilla, so can anybody tell me why the only real working backend is dropped? The PackageKit-Backend is not showing the updates from 3rd-party-repositories (packman or obs). Is there any possibility to get back the working 0.9.10?
I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.
I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.
I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.
I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.
So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.
Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!
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.
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 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 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.
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?
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
I'm experiencing complete system freezes when dowloading torrents with more than 800kb/sec (I think this is the limit, I've capped it at 750, and it seems to be running ok now). I had this same problem in Ubuntu aswell. But not in Win 7. The problem also appeared in ubuntu when streaming video through VLC with more than 800kbps.
As my connection gives me quite alot higher download speeds this kind of annoys me, and me being quite new to this whole Linux thing, don't really know what to do. I had a dialogue with someone at Ubuntuforums regarding this, but we pretty much got nowhere.
Everything else seems to work, but there is a problem with sound. I have a Xonar DS card that is recognised by the system and which works when I test it under the sound section of Yast.I have the Packman repository and Libdvdcss repository listed in Yast.However, no sound from any application/cd/dvd/internet or on boot.I've noticed that, in KMix,f I go into the mixer there is settings option -> audio setup. Under this there is a speaker option which offers the choice of the source of sound to the speakers - from my sound card or from the internal Intel sound - which does not work, hence my sound card. WhenI choose my sound card the test L & R speaker sounds work fine - but it won't hold the setting after I have clicked "apply" and left the audio setup. It then reverts to the internal sound chip and, lo and behold, no sound is now produced
I just tried to install virtual box by downloading the RPM from their website running it with yast. It said install succesful but I checked the install log and this is the result that I got. The program will not start. I want to run opensuse as my host and install Windows XP to run on top of it for my wife.
My software is System Atom 2GB of ram ION Linux 188.8.131.52-0.4-desktop x86_64 openSUSE 11.3 (x86_64) 4.5.2 (KDE 4.5.2) "release 10" NVIDIA 260.19.12
I did try to run sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup it failed I than ran vim /var/log/vbox-install.log and this information was in the file /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/build_in_tmp: line 55: make: command not found
I searched the faq, I did a search online for this etc. The reason I ask is that suse on the download page of 11.3 states don't download directly since it is very slow and has no check sum. Therefore the iso may be flawed and you have spent 10 hrs trying to download the iso. My "fast" internet through qwest is at 1.5 mbps download so I assume that is why it is so slow to download the iso of 4.7 Gb.Now for the question the download page suggets you use bit torrent since it does the checksum but will download the iso no faster than the direct method. Second is to use check metalink with the addon in Firefox downthemall. I did this and had quite a time getting the iso link for 11.3 to start downloading. I would start downthemall from the Firefox toolbar and I thought wow!!! it downloaded that iso fast, how cool. Well it was not the iso but the website for the download page! At one point I got it to start downloading the iso but came in this morining and it was still going after 17hrs and showed several hours to go. I gave up and deleated it.
This afternoon I just gave in and started the download again using the bit torrent and I am waiting for the download to finish. I did eveything the site indicated but after and hour I noticed under logger it said **** openSuse-11.3-DVD i586 iso: PIECE 2206 FAILED HASH CHECK. It shows this same message from the begining of the download 7hrs ago to the last few minutes on each section. It states it is 75% complete? Is this normal or am I wasting 10 more hours? Sorry if this is not the place for this question but I never had trouble with downloading 11.2 and burning it to the disk. I think I just used the Directlink method and crossed my fingers. It did download ok!
I put a few Itunes songs into my music folder and tried to play them. It didn't. Then, I got to reading in the forums and noticed that there was a "one click" configuration for Gnome users. After doing some more reading, I saw a lot of references to restricted codecs and things of that nature. After beginning the one-click process and then aborting midway through installation, three questions come to mind:
1) Why all the warnings about legalities of downloading the codecs/files? If I bought the music and I use the codecs to listen to it, where does legalities come into play?
2) While installing some of the different files, etc in the one-click process, I received a few warnings that a particular file was not from a trusted source (I don't remember the info verbatim) and then it gave me an email address, presumably from the developer, and asked if I wanted to install it anyway.
3) If I do go through the one-click process, will I be able to listen to I-tunes or am I pretty much screwed on I-tunes on linux?
I am new to opensuse. I want to install multimedia codecs on my opensuse 11.4. Is there any way to download multimedia codecs as an iso file and then burn a cd to install them on opensuse? Now, I am downloading "NonOSS CD" in add-on downloads section, is this iso file containing multimedia codecs?
I dont have a internet connection and I want to install VLC. I want to create a local repo for a vlc by downloading all the required packages. I tried to do by downloading all the packages from from VLC repo and create a local repo but failed. Its say this dependency failed and that dependency failed. i tried to manually install each and every dependency but still the problem exists.
I am running OpenSuse 11.2 on my desktop here in the office and when I download anything, other users are complaining over very slow internet speeds. My download speed seems to be the same as other users using Windows, but downloading from a windows machine does not cripple the network. So is there something in my network setup that can be tweaked so that I do not cripple the network when downloading ?
I am using KDE, 3.5.10 Linux 2.6/26-2-686 on an Eee-PC note book. When I try to configure Konqueror web behavior, the window is bigger that the screen and no scroll bar. It won't let me reduce the height of the screen. I can make my changes, but the apply button is off the screen. How do I do the apply?
When I Installed Ubuntu On My computer Sound Wasn't Working But I Found a solution for it in this link.But Today I Don't Know How But The Sound Sudendly Disabled So I Tryed That Method Agian And Nothing Working, I Tryed It Like 2 times OR 3 And Nothing.
I have compiz fusion and an ATI card (FGLRX driver) installed. This means that my windows are painfully slow to resize/min/max. This has bugged me for awhile, but apparently someone found a fix, as specified in: 107_fedora_dont_backfill_bg_none.patch
[Basically, they commented out most of a function].
how do I apply this patch? It causes problems for people using KDE on intel cards, but that won't bother me since I'm AMD on gnome.
