Fedora :: Yum Clear Cache And RPM Update - Internal System Error
I just installed F9 and updated to F11 (fedora 11) and I updated the system because I couldn't get the media player working and then I installed all these packages for two days. I have tried yum clear cache and the rpm update. Here are some of the ones I tried:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
yum update PackageKit
; yum clean all;

And this is the error:

Ubuntu :: How To Clear OpenJDK Cache
I've been advised to "clear the java cache", and to do so under Windows, one would open the java control panel. Of course, I'm using OpenJDK, and not Java's java.

Can anyone tell me how I would clear the java cache?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Clear Video Cache
Ubuntu 10.4 64-bit.I am almost certainly using the wrong term here, but if I knew for sure what I was looking for I probably would have managed to google it.In a fit of minor insanity, I used ffmpeg to convert all my video files I've impulse downloaded over the last decade or so to mp4, mostly because Easytag will happily tag them an assist in reorganizing them, but of course some videos didn't convert, either properly or at all due to issues with the original file.

But - every 108 -123 (Going by the filecount in my trash when it happens; I've wondered if the actual number is 127 or 128 but haven't gotten that definitive yet.) videos or so, totem dies, and so does every other video player I can use, VLC, mplayer, et al. For awhile I rebooted, then I figured out just logging out/in cleared the error, but I've yet to narrow down what exactly is causing it.Since it crosses all players I can only assume that there is some kind of cache that is getting filled up that is cleared when you logout, but after doing some digging it's nothing cleared by anything I've found like bitbleach.

Programming :: SHM Memory Counted As Cache Memory With Kernel 2.6.18?
Is that possible that SHM shared memory is counted as cache memory on Linux with kernel 2.6.18?If find it really odd since this memory is not file backed, but I have a piece of code that loads data using shm_open+mmap, and it generates an amount of cache memory in /proc/meminfo that corresponds exactly to the amount of shared memory (I load that data from a file but I am using posix_fadvise(fd,0,0,POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED) to ensure this file is not cached and I made sure that it is working as expected). As far as I know SHM memory was not tagged as cache memory with kernel 2.6.9.If it is the case it is really unfortunate since normally cache memory can be considered to be part of the "available" memory since it can be flushed promptly but this is clearly not the case with SHM memory... Is there an easy way to get the total amount of used SHM memory on a system?

Debian Configuration :: Clear DNS Cache ?
A friend has a website. the site has been moved to another server. I am inside of a private network.

Problem: when trying to reach his website, my browser keeps connecting to the old server which is on another continent

Windows machines have no problem with this. They connect to the new server without issues.

NOW what is hard to understand: even the PING utility is pinging the old server.

I tried these and none works:
- computer restart
- Clear private data in Iceweasel (has ntg to do with PING, but tried...)
- installed nscd and restarted the service
- modified /etc/resolv.conf to point to another nameserver than modified it back

At the same computer, if I reboot and load Windows, the browser has no problem connecting to the new server.

OpenSUSE :: How Clear Apache Cache ?
I'm getting a weird situation where even though I updated an image in a folder for a website in apache, it's still showing the old image. And yes, I checked it in multiple browsers and on diff. computers. (Apache is in a virtualbox OS)

Here's what I've done:
1. Checked it in firefox on the host, cleared cache, reloaded
2. Restarted apache
3. Checked it in konqueror for first time, still showing old version
4. Checked it in the actual file folder and it's correct there
5. Checked it for first time on virtual machine's OS in its firefox, and it shows the wrong/old image

Server :: Clear /var/cache/apt/archives On My Dedicated ?
I have a dedicated server and I am having email issues etc (seemingly) because the /var directory is 97% full

I would like to know if it is safe to clear it and how to clear it (assuming it will not disrupt/kill server services to do so).

I have a 'Matrix' control panel so i can view the storage etc but it does not have an way of clearing the /Var directory.

I have Putty Access to root but do not know much about command line access.

I found a few threads but the information is not clear to me as there seems to be an assumption of (basic?) knowledge I don't yet have.

My linux support guru that usually does this kind of thing for me is away and not contactable and my server is grinding to a halt and unable to store/send email.

I have only a very basic understanding of command line but really need to get this sorted ASAP.

Is it possible and SAFE to delete files via FTP from the /var/cache/apt/archives?

Debian :: High Memory Usage In Cache?
I've installed my debian sid about one month ago (first xfce, next gnome) but noticed that it's kind of really slow. The upgrades take ages, launching (and using) firefox takes so much time,... In comparaison to my ubuntu, archlinux (on the same computer) or previous installation of debian there is clearly a problem somewhere.Today I tried to do a "top" sorted by mem usage : 3.5% xulrunner-stub, 2.1% dropbox, 1.4% aptitude (doing upgrade), 1.4% clementine,... nothing terriblebut still I've 2.7Gb or RAM used (more than 50%)

$ free -m
total†used†free†shared† buffers†cached
Mem:† 3967†26851282† 0†79†1938
