Just got today's F12 updates, which included changing Firefox, Thunderbird & Lightning from Beta to full releases (FF=3.5.6; T'Bird=3.0; Lightning=1.0-0.16.20090916hg.fc12.x86_64). My remote calendars from Google come up fine but my local "home" calendar now gets the following errors:
Error: Error updating timezones: Error: mozIStorageStatement::step() returned an error
DB Error no such column: recurrence_id_tz
Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)
Shutdown hangs after recent update(s) and will not power off, requiring use of manual power switchHave tried the following ..1 # shutdown -P now .. in terminal .. same result2 Disabled selinux .. same result
This has been bothering me for a while. I thought if I waited a dependency would get fixed and the update would work, but it hasn't for a while now. I have included the error when trying to update gcc and the libraries. Skip broken skips everything so no dice there.
There is a problem with dependency resolution for the recent updates; i can't update my system even with the skip-broken, there is something to nautilus and phyton-devel and phyton, pls, take note of these.
I've just installed 100+meg of updates and rebooted only to find that when I login the desktop fails to boot. Opening a root-console, I killed Compiz which dropped me back to the login screen where I logged-in again with the desktop starting successfully. From there I disabled Compiz and have no problem starting the desktop now. But that's not really a solution.Even stranger, if I now try logging in with and older kernel version and with Compiz off - if I try enabling Compix now, the desktop just freezes - it also fails to complete loading the desktop. So both the current-kernel/Compiz seem to be linked to the problem in some way!Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a solution? I miss my desktop-effects!

Trying "yum update": Gives the following error.
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: libssl.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:
Additional info: Last update in log is from march 11. But has nothing to do with yum, ssl or python.
A recent (last couple of days) update to Fedora12 involving libunicap seems to have completely trashed VLC video player -- as in causing it to be completely uninstalled. No biggie, I thought; when I went to reinstall it, I saw that VLC 1.0.5-1 fc12 was available. Tried to install it, and KPackageKit calmly proceeded to throw up, telling me:

Wonderful. Now I don't have a video player that natively does mpg/avi; Dragon Player pretends to play them, but there's no video; same with Xine. BTW, I tried to report this via Bugzilla at Redhat, but couldn't find anything that resembled a way to report an actual bug/problem (what app doesn't work, how it doesn't work, any error messages).
Problem surfaced roughly 2 days ago (March 6th, 2010). When laptop lid is closed, and then opened, the screen remains black. Hard reboot is usually needed. Problem occurs when behavior setting is set to close laptop lid -> suspend, and also when setting is set to close laptop lid -> blank screen. I haven't tested under other settings.
Expected behavior: gnome login prompt appears. Please note that the expected behavior occurred consistently until a few days ago. Additional details: Intel driver. Fedora 12. GNOME. Thinkpad T60.
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:
The kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-43 upgrade will not boot on my Dell 1545 notebook. The initialization stops and the systems freezes right at the point that the login prompt should appear. I do not have invidia drivers. I have Intel video drivers. Also there is a loud 'pop' in the sound system early in the initialization sequence. For the time being, I have removed the 126.96.36.199-43 upgrade via yum.
I just rebooted my netbook after updates this last week and notices the wireless is broken now. The updates updated my kernel and wl modules. I'm using a broadcom 43224 driver.If i reboot to the older kernel the wireless works.
I started the upgrade to 10.4 from 9.10 through the update manager. It started the update to 10.4. After downloading almost 95% of the update, it gave an error message of "could not download certain components. downloaded files will not be erased" and stopped the update. I restarted the PC, and started the update manager again. But now it does not show any option of update to 10.4. how do I continue or resume the update process? I just started using ubuntu about 15 days back. So, I am relatively new to this.
im on mint 10 and when I run Update Manager i get this

Jaunty Jack - 9.04. Ran update manager last night and ubuntu-one client failed as part of the upgrade. At a loss as to figure out how to fix this. I have removed the ubuntuone-gnome-client and re-installed from the website but now luck.
I have a cyclical problem. After a new fedora installation the calendar week start with sunday and I want to change it with monday. I tried with many guide without success (the latest is this: [URL]). Is possible to say how to change it? The version is fedora 14.
I was wondering what smartphones do people have and what applications are they using with them. Is there a calendar/address book application which synchronizes with the phones? I've used a Palm Pilot with J-Pilot before. Would it work with an iPhone or Blackberry or Nokia N900?
I have installed Fedora today after trying various Linux Distributions. The only other one I really used for a longer time was ubuntu. So, theres an application for syncing Evolution with my Palm (Tungsten E2) which is called gnome-pilot. I set it up, but in contrast to ubuntu, I can't sync my Contacts and calendar with fedora. THe only things I can chose are shown on the screenshot below.
Is there any way to make my palm also sync its calendar (like it perfectly worked in ubuntu) ?
Edit: I was too stupid to search for "Gnome-Pilot" in the packet manager. Because if I did, i would have found "Additional conduits" which allows me to do that
Initially installed 5.3 on a 64-bit platform and was able to compile just fine. Foolhardily updated to 5.5. Somewhere in that process I lost the ability to compile even the simplest "hello, world" C program.
$ gcc hello.c In file included from /usr/include/_G_config.h:44, from /usr/include/libio.h:32, from /usr/include/stdio.h:72, from hello.c:1:
Where do I look to change the calendar preference in Gnome Shell from Evolution to Osmo? I have uninstalled Evolution and installed Osmo. I have looked in all of the settings available in System Settings, Tweak Advanced Settings, Alacarte, and Configuration Editor (gconf-editor), but I am obviously overlooking something.
Is it safe to delete all references to evolution when I find them in gconf-editor? I assume I would have to do that as root since it does not seem like trying to do so as a regular user works.
What I want to do is when I click on the date/time on the top bar and select "Open Calendar", Osmo will open. Right now I just get a message: "Execution of 'evolution' failed: command not found." Of course it would fail since I removed evolution. However, I can't seem to find out where to change it to look for Osmo instead.
I have an offline machine and the full 8 DVD repository set and have added them to the system and they work fine to install packages. I used jigdo to download the update 6.0.1 DVD and the "packages" file and the one inside of "packages.gz" are empty files. This prevents the disk from working at all. I'm not sure who to report this to.
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'm using KDE and after some update GStreamer seems to be broken. Firstly it was unable to play sound at all, and I've got around this by changing Phonon preferred engine to Xine. But Clementine is still unable to play with error message:
Clementine Error GStreamer could not create the element: volume. Please make sure that you have installed all necessary GStreamer plugins (e.g. OGG and MP3)
I've already read this and this topic, but none of the things, proposed to try, worked for me.
I want to fix this annoying thing with ppa keys broken. There was a script named launchpad-update that used to do that for you, but everything I find is for pre karmic. Is there any alternative to that script? Any way to do it manually? Some programs I installed are not getting updated and I'm having to add new ppas manually..
After doing a update in ubuntu 10.04 this is the message I get: E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libimobiledevice1_1.0.6-1ubuntu1~lucid1_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/20thirdparty/31-apple-mobile-device.fdi', which is also in package libimobiledevice0 0
How can I recover from this? The problem is made worse because I can not install any software because of a broken package on the system use broken filter to locate it I don't have any clue
I'm just getting back into Linux after (quite) a few years away; from Fedora Core2/3. Trialling Ubuntu Natty with Unity and Linux Mint 11 running for 2 weeks.
So last night I clicked on the (Mint 11) Software Update Manager - a small shield appearing on the taskbar which listed about 30 pkgs to be updated. I've no idea what all these lib-xyq-012 files are but I thought, well the system is basically asking me to update my system, so why not?
A few minutes later it finished, and I went to my VPN connection but nothing happened. I rebooted and noticed some errors displayed during shutdown but I didn't catch them.
a) date time has disppeared from the taskbar
b) network connections icon disappeared from taskbar
c) no internet connection at all!
d) menu --> system --> network manager --> (nothing happens)??
If anyone has some idea what I could try? (install Natty might be a valid solution at this point). I searched the forums but couldn't see anyone else had this issue (is updating recommended updates from software update manager not a good idea?)
I don't have internet it's difficult to use the usual "google-and-resolve" approach, I have to keep booting back into WinXP.
