Applications :: Error Message While Attempting RPM Install
Dec 15, 2010
I was trying to install a newer version of Firefox and thought I would just try to install the newer RPM for Fedora without doing anything else and this dialog message appeared.
Could not do simulate: Can't install /home/kbs/Downloads/firefox-3.6.4-0.4.build6.fc13.remi.i586.rpm as no transaction
I have Ubuntu Jaunty & Linux Multimedia Studio 0.4.2. In attempt to update to LMMS 0.4.5, I downloaded & attempted to install : lmms_0.4.5~ppa-1jaunty_i386.deb and got the following error message : Error : Dependency is not satisfiable : lmms-common (=0.4.5~ppa-1jaunty). What went wrong and is there an easier way to update ? Also, should I remove the older version or just install the latest on top of it ?
I looked through my command history to verify I hadn't done anything stupid. The only thing I had done since my last zypper command was to install ngspice....WITH zypper.
Looks to me like libreadline.so.6 is corrupt.
Is there a way I can "update" or reinstall libreadline.so.6 with an uncorrupted version without bricking my OS? I looked into uninstalling libreadline.so.6 from Yast Software Manager (GUI) but it throws all kinds of warnings about how it can't complete operations and it will break links and such....so I'd like to avoid it unless a guru says otherwise.
Im trying to instal Sun Virtualbox but when download completes and I click on install I get the following error>>Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) I wont even bother with this software if there are others out there that are as easy to use. I used it on Windows and thought it was great ! (thats how I eventually switched to Linux, by using it virtually at first)
Greetings from Greece. I tried to install opensuse 11.3 in an empty disk . Unfortunately the installation progress stops in 88% and the message error says "error copy live image to the disk". I have burn two different cd but the result is always the same.Is it a hardware problem or the cd is not correct?I had the 11.2 version in the same pc without any problem for a long time.
I'm having an issue when I'm trying to install SuSE linux onto my desktop.I go through all the steps and everything looks okay, but when it starts to install the packages, I get an error message that basically says:kernel.desktop - unable to install, exit status 127.I have a ATI X1950 video card in the computer, as well as a AMD 64 FX CPU in the system.
I receive an error mesage during install of ubuntu 10.4 while partitioning ext3 freezes at 5% then a black screen. I see the cursor but can't move it with the error message "process:304): Glib - warning **: getpwuid_r() : Failed due to unknown user id (0)", I have tried installing 9.10 and 5.0.5 Debian when I installed 9.10 ubuntu and debian it just froze and wouldn't do anything.
I have Ubuntu 9.10. The batter drained several days ago, and now when I attempt to boot I simply get a string of indecipherable error messages which last for about 5 minutes, and the screen then goes completely black. I am not able to even get to the login screen. Windows 7 Starter boots fine, so it's definitely a software issue. Any solutions short of completely reinstalling? I really don't want to lose all of my data.
I'm getting the following error which seems quite odd. Trying to change the server to my local country's update server results in the same error (with slightly different URL). I've also disabled any extra repositories I was using.Code:W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick/ReleaseUnable to find expected entry extras/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?When trying to upgrade to Natty I get the same error, just for the natty path:Code:W:Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/natty/ReleaseUnable to find expected entry extras/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
We have a server running suse 9. I had to do a reboot yesterday. the server dropped off the network, but did not reboot. It was attempting a connect, but I don't know why or to what. These are the lines that I saw on the screen:Connecting to (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=IPC)(KEY=EXTPROC1) ))
I download a few times and burned a few CD's but after I select install on hard disc or use the livecd the computer will hung up and then I have a message saying boot error, I download the iso image from 2 different sources but still not working. I'm installing on a Dell 500 with 256Mgs of memory (I have Ubuntu installed but its too slow).
I am just now starting to go deeper than the surface of my computer so I am very much a beginner. I have downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and have tried to install it by mounting the image and installing "inside windows." Next, upon reboot and selecting Ubuntu from the windows loader it eventually went to a colorful screen but stayed there... the first time I let it sit there for 20 minutes or so then restarted, uninstalled/reinstalled tried again... then I let it sit there for 3 hours, nothing. Next I tried to mount image and install "demo and full installation." This time upon reboot I choose Ubuntu from the windows loader menu and an error message came up. I will type it out below exactly as I see it because this is the same message that came up when a friend suggested I boot from a USB drive.
I'm new to Fedora 13, although 10 years ago I fooled around a little with Red Hat 4.2 and Mandrake 7. I'm trying to install flash on my desktop. The install went as smooth as can be on my laptop, but the desktop isn't going well. First of all, My system is an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core in an Asus M4N78 PRO motherboard with 4 Gb of RAM, although Gnome reports it as 3.8 Gb. Video is Invidia GeForce 5500.
The Flash install goes ok until I enter the command: "yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libcurl.i686"
Once that command starts running it pops out this error message: Error: Package: glibc-2.12-2.i686 (updates) Requires: glibc-common = 2.12-2 Installed: glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64 (@updates-testing) Available: glibc-common-2.12-1.x86_64 (fedora) Available: glibc-common-2.12-2.x86_64 (updates) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I've tried the work arounds suggested by the error message and they didn't work. I tried downloading the missing file and it seems to not exist. I also tried this command: yum downgrade glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64
That generated this output: Setting up Downgrade Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * fedora: mirror.hiwaay.net * livna: rpm.livna.org * rpmfusion-free: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-nonfree: mirror.hiwaay.net * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.hiwaay.net * updates: mirror.hiwaay.net
When i shutdown my SuSE 11.2 box with all current updates i have started to notice an error message.Something about failed to unmount, trying remount as read only or something like that.The trouble is its almost the very last message that appears and its not on the screen long enough to read properly.Somewhere is there a logfile that i can recover this error message from so that i can make some sort of an attempt to resolve the issue, post the whole message here in more detail?
I was trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my windows xp. dowloaded and installed wubi. All worked well and system asked me to restart. After restart ubuntu was showing on multi boot screen, selected it. Then the system asked me to ESC installation or not, i didn't Esc. The Ubuntu screen was showing, but all of a sudden an error message saying INSTALLATION FAILED occurred.
My system Processor: Intel pentium IV Ram 1 GB Harddisk:- 160 gb

It has gone flawlessly on all 4. i a want to install it on my hp to dual boot(the others i just wiped the drives) but when i tell it to boot from the cd at first it looks like it might work, with the purple page, but after a few minutes, before i get to the install options i get an error message. my current operating systime is windows and i have an hp pavilion. with 2.5 gigs of ram and a descent graphics card.

I just installed Ubuntu. I like it so far. After installing like 10 apps, I started getting this error: Quote: An unhandlable error occured There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon, the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks. Please report this error at www...
Just ran into a problem involving mdadm, a disk which had been in a raid array, and an attempt to reformat. Basically, I went to reformat some partitions which had been in raid, and one of them threw the error andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb5 mke2fs 1.41.11 (14-Mar-2010) /dev/sdb5 is apparently in use by the system; will not make a filesystem here! An attempt to umount revealed it was not mounted. lvdisplay and fuser did not reveal anything to me, so I just started looking around. I was graphically navigating /dev and noticed a /dev/md_d0 which did not look like /dev/md_d1 etc (it was missing a little arrow). I had not seen this notation before (my raid was md0), but figured it couldn't hurt to try stopping it.
andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mdadm --detail /dev/md_d0 mdadm: md device /dev/md_d0 does not appear to be active. andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mdadm --stop /dev/md_d0 mdadm: stopped /dev/md_d0
After this, the partition formatted fine! I saw a lot of instructions including zeroing the partition and removing a logical volume, but the above was the only thing which worked for me! Just posted it in case it helps someone else. I know I've not been terribly technical!
My son wants to install Wintendos so that he can play starcraft 2 on my new comp. But it doesn't seem to work. Every time I try to install it the install breaks down with an error message like, no boot disc/media can be found. (This is after the install has started, a couple of minutes in.) I suspect that Microsoft doesn't support usb 3.0 in their native distribution of win7, not sure though. And that my comp only has usb 3 ports. How do I check what kind of hardware my comp is packing, specially USB ports.
been a fan of openSUSE for years now and peridocially go back and forth between Suse and Windows. However, I'm still an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to this stuff. Well, I bought a netbook (Acer Aspire ONE) several months back and loved Win 7 (a first for me). However, like all Windows, they all go down the crapper. So I'm wanting to completely wipe out Windows and go all Suse on my netbook.So I downloaded KDE Live and "burned" it on my USB. BTW, the image writer that are in the directions only writes, .raw files not .iso. I had to use a third party software.I then went into my BIOS and put the USB drive first on the booting list, and then restarted. Right off the bat I get the error message.Could not find kernel image: gfxbootAll I want to do is install openSUSE on my netbook
