Some time ago I did an automatic update and after that firefox, thunderbird and yast2 don't start. It's not that there is an error message or sth. Their icons just start jumping and after a while it stops without anything opened. I tried even removing the zilla directories and so on but it doesn't help. Of course I tried to simply reboot the machine and strangely enough, still does not work. Opera works though and I am ok with that, however yast2 not opening is more annoying. I do all the stuff that I want from the console, but of course that's not the point
About a week ago, I installed all the updates that popped up. I didn't actually look at what was being installed.
Since then, most of the items in the Yast2 Control centre won't run and just pop up an error box with the following (Firewall):
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error' what(): basic_string::_S_construct NULL not valid YaST got signal 6 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/firewall.ycp:20 /sbin/yast2: line 440: 19436 Aborted $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "::ffff:127.0.0.1:11.0".
This is the error message I got today when updating. patch:yast2-control-center-4200.noarch conflicts with yast2-control-center-qt.i586 < 2.20.2-1.3.1 provided by yast2-control-center-qt-2.19.3-6.1.i586
I did a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.1 i586. Everything worked fine. Then I used YaST2 Software Management to add a package. Worked fine. Then I did the Online Update to get the Installation up to date. Worked fine so far. I had to restart the Machine because of the Kernel Bugfix Update. Since then, the YaST2 Software Management is not working any more.
When I do start it, it starts the software manager, shows the "Search Phrase" and so on but when I enter a word and press "RETURN" the software manager immediately closes and takes me back to the YaST2 start screen. No messages, no warnings, nothing. With zypper I am able to install software but no longer within YaST2.
When I ran YaST | Software Management | Package | Update if newer Package Available this morning I get this message:
Code: #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2011-01-22 09:40:42 #### libxine1-codecs-1.1.19-2.pm.48.15.i586 requires libpostproc.so.51, but this requirement cannot be provided uninstallable providers: libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586[ftp.uni-erlangen.de-suse] [ ] break libxine1-codecs by ignoring some of its dependencies [ ] Following actions will be done: install libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586 despite the inferior architecture ..... [ ] do not install libxine1-codecs-1.1.19-2.pm.48.15.i586 #### YaST2 conflicts list END ###
What is it telling me? What should I do? What are the implications?
I am trying to update Flash-player and yast2-core as prompted by today's update icon.
I am now faced with a loop that goes like this: 1) click on icon 2) window pops up, "2 packages selected" 3) click on apply, subwindow pops up 4) click on continue, "waiting for authentication" 5) after minutes of waiting, click on cancel, nothing happens 6) click on icon killing subwindow 7) now back to 2)
Aborting the process, starting at 1) again, same mess
On my opensuse 11.2 pc, the Decmber 3rd KDE 4.5.4 update proceeded to install all updates except libkdecore4 (and maybe others). libkdecore4 now has a dependency on liblzma5 which is not available. The result is an all white desktop with boxes where the widgets should be.
I found this bug report: [url]
But I can't find liblzma5 in the repository that is listed in the 2nd posting.
I get following error during automatic patch upgrade of my SuSE 11.2 to latest path revision. I assume it is due to the KDE 4.3.5 Update part of the patch set: compiz-kde4-0.7.8-9.14.x86_64 requires libkdecorations.so.4()(64 bit) but there are no providers. The package manager suggest to replace compiz-kde4-0.7.8-9.14.x86_64 with kwin-4.3.5-0.2.1.x86_64 but I don't want to loose compiz-kde. which repository I must add to resolve the dependency.
how to update my system online (for example my firefox 3.0 to 3.5) but i can't figure out how this possibly works. I tried the "online update" using Yast2 but apparently (according to Yast) there is nothing at all to be patched on my system. I tried to click on the Firefox-3.5.5 rpm in the repository web-interface and open it using "install software" but the process aborts because of unresolved dependencies. Is there an easy way to update software without having to download/install every dependency manually?
Fedora 12 18.104.22.168-67.fc12.i686I have tried doing the recommended as its saids at the bottom. However, that didn't work. So I have to yum upgrade --skip-brokenDoes anyone know how to solve this problem?

I'm having some perl problems while using yum update... I recently upgraded to 5.3 and have the latest MailScanner.. I do not want to have to remove perl because it will remove a bunch of other things along with it.
I have to wonder how much testing Opensuse has done with yast-dns-server package. After adding zones to the dns server - the system loses the ability to perform name resolutions. I can copy a named.conf file from a system that does work, except everytime the system is restart the named.conf file is rewritten trashing the updates done and again rendering the system to perform name resolutions.
Anyone have suggestions on how to get yast-dns-server from interferring with the configuration file? I tried just uninstalling the package, but then bind doesn't even start up on boot up.
I just recently updated my firefox and now I cannot find it anywhere. I have tried yum reinstall firefox and I get the following:

I have tried the given commands and I can a reply of: Code: Setting up yum Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit Reading local RPM database Processing all local requires Missing dependencies: Package java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-22.214.171.124-25.b16.fc11.i586 requires libxul.so Package firefox-3.5.2-2.fc11.i586 requires xulrunner >= 126.96.36.199 Package firefox-3.5.2-2.fc11.i586 requires libxul.so Package xulrunner-188.8.131.52-1.fc11.i586 requires libxul.so Package libproxy-mozjs-0.2.3-10.fc11.i586 requires gecko-libs >= 1.9.1
downgrade also does not work. I just updated F12 to F13 using DVD and this occured. Also prevents me from doing "full" yum system update, these packages always fail. I do not understand the problem, it says that perl-libs 5.10.1-112 requires perl-libs 5.10.1-112, but I have that installed.

I am running Fedora 12 64-bit on a MacBookPro5,1 system. After two weeks of not running Fedora on the system, I boot into it and check for updates with Yum Extender. It only finds a small handful of updates despite the fact that my other system running Fedora 12 32-bit has installed several update over the past two weeks. When I try to apply the available updates I get the following errors: Dependency Resolution Errors:

What is needed to resolve these update issues? Also, I suspect the system is not picking up all the updates that it should. What can I do to determine which updates the system should be getting?
I'm trying just a generic yum update to bring the machine up to date, I'm running into problems with two packages and their dependencies, kpartx and lvm2
I've removed any additional repositories, and performed a yum clean all
I think my problem comes down to device-mapper, it's asking for 1.02.32-1 to install lvm2 however if I run a yum list device-mapper it only shows 1.02.24-1.el5 as installed, and it is not marked for update. I've tried downloading the rpm directly, If i try to install the rpm with yum I'm told that there is nothing to do, if I try to install directly I run into problems with conflicts with the already installed package.
The kpartx seems dependent on device-mapper-multipath
the following message appears after I enter the root password.
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData11detach_growEPii
It doesn't launch from the root console, either. But, the text-based YaST works fine. I assume that something went wrong after my last system update. which package I need to downgrade, to get things working, again?
I am trying to update PHP on a centos server by using
yum update php which results in the following...

Error: Missing Dependency: php-common = 5.2.9-1.el4.art is needed by package php-xml I think PHP was previously updated using the centosplus repository which may be causing this problem. yum install php-common results in a nothing to do error.
The problem is that yum is refusing to install gcc on a new SL6 install. As far as I can make out, a security update that I applied prior to my attempt to install gcc has caused problems. I did a new SL6 install (x86_86) a couple of weeks ago. This was a minimal installation, and I didn't install any dev tools, as I intended to install them later from yum. Since then, I've done very little; I installed a few packages (samba, xemacs, etc), and I let the system update itself. The update installed 'kernel', and updated 'kernel-firmware' [URL]. I now need to install the dev tools (g++, and so on), but I can't. I've tried this from gpk-application, and directly from yum. The complete yum output is below, but the basic error is:
I got the following errors in spite of having both the packages installed. What can be done?

I'm using openSUSE 11.4 64bit (KDE). I enabled Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/oss repository through YaST2 but it is empty and I can't see any source rpm file in YaST2. I even delete that repository and add it again but still empty. I open the link in firefox and it's not empty or invalid link.
11.4-KDE4.6.5 32bit install,,,perhaps it is the normal way now, but it was new to me: Opened Yast2 Partitioner module, and attempted to set up an extended partition on space unallocated of sdb. Went thru the steps to create and hit finish, immediately i get a kdesu authorization dialog and yast2 Partitioner disappears/crashes. entry in var/log/messages:
Aug 22 09:08:25 blkdragon polkitd(authority=local): Operator of unix-session:/org/freedesktopConsoleKit/Session3 FAILED to authenticate to gain authorization for action org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal for system-bus-name::1.38 [kdeinit4: kded4 [kdeinit]] (owned by unix-user:blkdragon) so, does this mean I have to set up udisks/polkit rules for using the Partitioner? Yast2 was not considered in the default polkit rules for the install?
Is there a way to know the size of a package in YaST2?I only have 50MB left in my root partition / (Btw, my /home is in a separate partition.) and I'm looking for a way to selectively delete package depending on it's size. Also, when we "remove" a package in YaST2, is it "completely" removed? or is there some residual rpm left? (of course /home/configs would be kept as it is an expected behavior).
A package nss >= 3.12.8 is not available. But it is needed by thunderbird update in the course of "yum update". yum exits with RC 1.Is "--skip-broken" the right way to exclude the thunderbird update ("Resolve depsolve problems by removing packages that are causing problems from the transaction")? Or is there a better way to exclude a package? Problem screen output:

I am trying to install the gcc package using Ubuntu 9.10, but fail to do so because of an dependency error, which seems to go in a circle. gcc-4.4-base needs libgcc1 before installation, and vice versa. Downloading the recently updated karmic packages did not help.
I am not having a lot of good fortune with Xfce, this time. The LiveCD had a kernal error, and after doing an install, the update chokes on dependency errors. I tried unchecking the problem update files, but then I ended up in a loop that I couldn't find what else was causing these problems. This doesn't seem to be a big problem listed in this forum, so how do I resolve this?
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.
