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.
I need to somehow do a yum installation (or equivalent of) on a system that is offline with no access to the internet. (I do have access to another Linux system that has internet access, but the Linux installations on both systems have different packages installed and enabled.)
Let's say the command to enter is 'yum install pkg1 pkg2 pkg3' (the documentation for some applications I need indicate the installation instructions this way, and not as the actual RPMs I need). Is there a way for me to run that on my offline system?
e.g. one way I can think of is to run that command on the online system, somehow if possible take note of what RPMs get installed, then transfer them to the offline system via USB and install all the RPMs via rpm command.
The problem with my above idea is that the two systems have different packages enabled, so even if yum on the online system shows a few dependencies being downloaded, I could run download and install all these RPMs and their dependencies on the offline system only to find several more missing dependencies, and dependencies of those dependencies.
I have a custom made rpm. I need to install my particular RPM in a list of rpms which are part of a program. Say I have around 20 patch rpms which needs to be installed I need to install this through yum command. My particular RPM namely Patch-list.188.8.131.52-1.noarch.rpm needs to be installed as the first rpm in the total list of 21 rpms. I can modify my spec files and Makefiles as per my wish. what needs to be changed so that my rpm Patch-list.184.108.40.206-1.noarch.rpm will be installed first.
I can use KRPMview or midnight commander to see what's in an RPM, fine. I might want to inspect a file inside an RPM or actually install some of its files but this latter might upset already installed files. Or, it is so dependent on something else being previously installed. Therefore I need to install it elsewhere, take a look at he file content and/or copy, it to where I want.
There are options: --badreloc --prefix --relocate --nodeps --ignoreos --force
Some are mutually exclusive but the result is it still tells me - package not relocatable. Is there any other magic incantation or do I need to do some time-consuming backup, run the RPM install and any deps hell, do my intended thing, then another time-consuming restore? Or maybe set up a partition with a suitable suse version and just run the RPM there and then copy over?
We found a link to binutils-32bit-220.127.116.1180912-1.5.ppc64.rpm in software.opensuse.org: Search Results but the page states that the object is not found. We had the same problem with these packages: compat-32bit-2008.8.13-1.10.ppc64.rpm and linux32-1.0-414.13.ppc.rpm.
We have an appliance with image being installed from CD/DVD installation This appliance image is based on CentOS 4.7 kernel/installer/etc. Everything works fine, we ship this product for about 2 years. Recently I had to move it (port everything) to CentOS 5.5 Everything went fine and it works fine except one minor thing )) We can't install it from CD/DVD image yet. Actually it start fine, finds kickstart file, creates partitions correctly, copies install image to harddrive, but fails the next step when it tries to install RPM's
The message we get:
Quote: the file termcap-5.5-1.20060701.1.noarch.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require re-installation"
I have installed Centos 5.3 64 bit version and run yum update so the system is up to date. However, I have noticed the kernel version that is installed is:
uname -a Linux elektra.chemresearch 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
and when attempting to install from ATrpm.net the nvidia driver I get this message:
yum install nvidia-graphics169.07 nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-`uname -r` ... Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 is needed by package 1:nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5-169.07-94.el5.x86_64 (atrpms)
Now, yum says the kernel is up to date so how can I get the nvidia driver rpms to install? The entries in /boot are:
I have checked to make sure that the update repo is enabled. There were quite a few updates applied after the initial installation and the initial kernel was updated as the yum log indicates and also the entries in /boot.
I'm trying to install some wireless drivers, but apparently I don't have a /lib/modules/<kernel>/build directory, which is causing the Makefile to throw an error. Is there a specific place I should point the Makefile at?
I am looking for explanations on how Opensuse utilizes the root directories. Like what decides if a program goes in /bin vs /sbin vs /usr/bin etc...In other words, a breakdown of the directory structure and how each part is utilized. I am trying to get more familiar with it so it will be easier for me to locate things and I will know where to look for X part of a program that does Y.
I have 3 disks in my PC which are partitioned equally as I use them for Raid 1.The first partition on every disk is a simple ext2 partition for booting. No Raid there. So I mount them as /boot and /boot2 and /boot3. So I can backup my /boot to the other boot directories. That worked for some month and this morning I just want to look if all directories have enough free space left. So I did a df -h and got this:
Code: Dateisystem Grove Benut Verf Ben% Eingehängt auf /dev/mapper/system-root 6,0G 301M 5,4G 6% / udev 1,5G 292K 1,5G 1% /dev /dev/sdb1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot /dev/sdc1 38M 21M 16M 59% /boot2 ... /dev/sda1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot As you can see /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 are both mounted on /boot
Here is what mount says: Code: /dev/sdb1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr) /dev/sdc1 on /boot2 type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr) ... /dev/sda1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr)
This is no Problem for me as I could just remount it correctly, but I would like to know if this problem is known. I did not change anything by now and this PC is a server which is running 24/7, so I can deliver more debugging Information if someone is interested.
I get this error when I boot opensuse default and fail safe. It takes me to a console log in, which works. This happened after new kernel install in Linux Mint, which is unbootable atm. I can boot windows, bsd but no Linux.
Normally I find everything I need either in the documentation or forum, but it's been months, and this time I'm stumped. I'm posting the results of my latest tests, so I'm really sorry about the length of this post.
I can't play DVDs unless they've been burned by myself or a friend. I had no problems until around the beginning of April. I was running 11.2 on both my laptop and desktop. I think an update changed something. This was before 11.2 was officially retired a week or so later. I wanted to upgrade to 11.4 anyway, so I began with my laptop. During installation I wiped everything from my hard disk by creating new partitions and formatting them. After installation I installed the multimedia packages using one-click (opensuse-guide.org, not opensuse-community.org, although I did read what they said). I know one-click is not ideal, but I was curious. The result was that I still couldn't play DVDs.
I did a fresh installation, just to be on the safe side. This time I installed the packages according to Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide by caf4926. But I still couldn't play DVDs, so I went through the thread Check your multimedia problem in ten steps. Then I ran mmcheck (v2.35). I tried a few times, experimented, and in the end did another fresh install.
In the meantime, on my desktop, which still has 11.2 on it, I found the file which had been changed and changed it back, so I could play DVDs on it again. It was in /etc/udev/rules.d/, 70-persistent-cd.rules. This does not appear to be the problem in 11.4 on my laptop.
I have again installed the packages according to the multimedia installation guide, and done the ten-step check and run mmcheck and these are the results as they stand:
I couldn't find a package called mplayerplug-in. I used zypper to look for it.
I tried installing the totem packages in a previous installation, but they didn't make a difference, so I left them out this time.
I deinstalled my jdk, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference, except that I get an error notification everytime I want to use LibreOffice. And I need it, so I'm putting it back soon.
So, these are my packages:
And this is what happens when I try to play a DVD using Kaffeine (since I don't an error message except from Kaffeine, and I've forgotten where my logs are):
And then comes Read error from: Error reading from DVD over the GUI.
And nothing else happens... I get no feedback from smplayer whatsoever. It opens, trys to read the DVD, and sits there. Even on the console.
I have a problem when booting my pc.I uninstaled bootchart and since then kernel goes to panic..saying /sbin/boot:no such file or directory..I followed the Repair Installed System from my dvd but it fails at the end and it just reboots the system..Is there any way to baypass this problem without reinstalling the OS?
I have just followed the instructions here: Upgrade/Supported - openSUSE to upgrade from version 11.1 to 11.2. When it was upgrading the system, by using: It had problems with a couple of rpms (one oppenofice extras and the other i cant remember). I went away for a moment and when i returned the computer was blocked. I whaited to no avail. I pushed the power button and turned of the PC. I started it again, and in the boot menu it still said version 11.1, but the background was not that of 11.1, but that of 11.2. I booted but did not started X windows, worse still my /home/ directory is empty!
I am setting up a LAMP server for my home LAN. I want to move the data out of / into a new disk partition for ease of backup and especially away from any clean installation I might do. What
I have in mind: Shut down MySQL and Apache Make a new partition, format as ext4 Mount new partition on /mnt Copy all of /srv to /mnt Copy MySQL stuff from /var/lib/mysql to /mnt/mysql Update /etc/my.conf to point to /srv/mysql Unmount /mnt Update /etc/fstab to mount new partition on /srv mount /srv Start mysql, apache
Will a fresh install or upgrade keep its fingers out of /srv, in the same way as /home? Or will those parts of apache installed in /srv/www be updated?
I am having a problem setting up an encrypted home directory with openSUSE 11.3. I used Yast User and Group Management to edit an existing user to encrypt the home directory and the user.key and user.img files were created in the /home directory. I tried it out and logged in as user and created a new file. I logged out and logged in as a different user and was able to see the newly created file in the first users home directory.
I figured I did something wrong so I went back to Yast and deleted the user. I deleted the /home/user directory using file manager su mode. I tried again to create a new user with an encrypted home directory using Yast and now when Yast tries to write the changes I get an error: "pam_mount is already setup for user. Use --replace to replace the existing entry." I do not know how to proceed from here except to try with a different user name as I do not understand what the error message means and what command to use --replace with.
My machine telling me that my home directory is running out space,It is said 95% in usage.Try to delete the big unwanted files in users (just two user in my machine),df ing, but the home usage status keep on 95%.
I would like to have a directory Code: /home/shared Where all human users have r/w permission for all files and sub-directories under this path. Can I achieve this buy just setting the permissions correctly or do I need to do something else?
I want to do something that would make my life easier. Problem:
1. I use OpenSUSE as my main OS for over 2 years now. BUT I like playing with a flavor of the month OS.
2. Virtual OS installs are not my cup of tea. a) You don't get a "true" feeling for the OS without it being installed on metal. b) I have a OLD cpu and virtual anything is painfully slow.
Solution: Split the /home directory into three partitions.
1. Shared /home partition holding all visible data files
2. OpenSUSE /home partition having all the hidden .files and .directories for its configuration.
3. Flavor of the month OS /home partition having all the hidden .files and .directories for its configuration.
Reasoning: I can therefore install another OS or Distro and just format and install to 2 partitions. I still have all my documents and files in a separate shared partition.
Issues: 1. I understand why they made the configuration files in /home for multiple users, but when someone wants to keep trying out different things it causes problems. 2. I don't want to place my files on my NAS. I have the same issue. My config files are saved in the NAS/home/and I can't share it without headaches. Doesn't solve my issue. 3. A symbolic link (soft) won't work since it will not update itself if files are moved. 4. Drop Box won't solve my issue and just take up space. 5. Syncing the /home/ folders between the two would take double the space. Just an issue with videos music and pictures. 6. If I make any changes won't this causes issues with the operating system and applications placing .config and defaults to the wrong place?
Solution I can't figure out how to process:
1. Save my .config files on a separate partition.
2. Making a link for each folder from the SUSE or Flavor of the month's /home folder to the storage /home folder located on a separate partition.
I just installed suse 11.3 on formatted partitions (5GB swap, 30GB / and 500GB /home). Just after the installation, My computer showed 25.2GB of /home to be used. When I do:
Code: dyn-0a2a1f40:/ # df -h .....
That seem to be roughly correct because since yesterday I've been running a program that constantly writes logs and other data files and plots, which might have accumulated a few GB's. It is also collaborated by the output of
Code: dyn-0a2a1f40:/ # du -sk /home 10548452 /home
I'm not hard-up on space right now but storage has been dear until the recent past. Also out of curiosity, the size of the /home partition is shown as 493 instead of the 500GB allocated while the swap also lists only 4GB instead of 5GB. Below is the output for fdisk -l in case anyone needs it:
