Fedora Installation :: Updating To KDE 4.2 In F10 - Error Downloading Packages
Feb 17, 2009
I got a problem while updating KDE from 4.1.2 to 4.2. In our college we can't download more than 20MB officially. So I'm unable to get kdegames which is 32MB from Konsole so I downlaoded it using proxy and I copied it into the /var/cache/yum/updates/packages/ folder and now using this command (yum groupinstall 'KDE (K Desktop Environment)').
I tried to update to KDE 4.2 using Konsole but it is showing:
Error Downloading Packages:
6:kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386: failure: kdegames-4.2.0-1.fc10.i386.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
And even by double-clicking the KDEgames rpm file I'm unable to install it is saying GPG (I'm not sure GPG or not, start with G i think) Key missing so it is taking too much time and not doing anything.
I'm trying to update Ubuntu 10.04 after a clean installation, it downloaded 245 files,and there is an error in the indexes of the 2 last packages:Failed to fetch [URL] difiere (bad size) Failed to fetch [URL] difiere (bad size) This happens even changing the repository to main server or another through "Software origins".Update-manager doesn't conclude the update because it can't download all the packages.
if there is a way of downloading some extra packages and including some extra repositories that will automatically install during the main installation? With the option of a few settings being saved too... like for those that are used to windows having the gnome menu on the bottom.
I am promoting and convincing a lot of people to try Linux and I always recommend fedora as the OS of choice. I have no interest in creating my own distro, because I love Fedora. I just want to make sure these users can have all the codecs and little extras that makes computing fun without being a geek.My main issue is when I wipe their HDD and install Fedora, I then have to repeat the same tweaks and installs every time. This is my 7th time doing the exact same install and am looking for a quicker way.
im using fedora 14 and i have a slow internet connection. i want 2 install some packages from the fedora 14 dvd instead of downloading from internet using add/remove packages. i tried to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo but it dint work.
what this means? installArchives() failed: Preconfiguring packages ... Preconfiguring packages ... dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 11756 package 'vinagre': `Depends' field, reference to `libgconf2-4': version contains ` ' I get it while trying to update my computer.
Just during the last three days, when running Update Manager, clicking Check, downloading all available updates, then Clicking Install Updates, the Downloading Files window pops up but it is blank. and it stays blank. The little rotating icon indicates something's going on but, NO. Nothing has happened, even after a couple of hours. Trying to close Downloading Files brings up a window to Force Quit. Then trying to close Update Manager has no effect. to shorten the story, finally a window pops up saying that the "AT SPI Registry" is not responding. I'm sure trying the same thing will not yield different results. I'm running 10.04.
I did the UPGRADE from Karmic Koala to Lucid, and everything was going well. But now I've been having problems with the UBUNTU UPDATE tool for the last 2 weeks. Every time I try to do an update check on the packages, I get the following message:Failed to fetch http:[url]....Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I've tried changing the servers to MAIN and others, and still no way to solve it. I've also checked for other posts, but haven't found a solution yet. Here's my SOURCES LIST (gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)# See http:[url].... for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution.
I've downloaded the DVD version of Fedora 12 with a torrent so it shouldn't be corruped - checked the hash anyway and it wasn't - and I burnt it at a low speed and has my burning program verify that it did indeed burn what it was supposed to. I tested the disc for errors and every time it shows up that around the 70% mark that the DVD has an error.
I just installed ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my Acer Aspire 5745. The installation was successful. However, I found that my internet is not working. Later I realised that there are no ethernet drivers. The one that I need is Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet controller(NDIS 6.20). My wireless is also not working. This one is a Broadcom 802.11n Network adapter.On googling, I found this thread : URL...
To install the driver first, I had to do build-essential and headers-generic. Since I have a desktop, i thought of manually downloading the packages on my desktop and then transferring it to the acer. But i came across many dependencies for build-essential, that is, I first had to install something else before build-essential. The dependencies led me to further dependencies and so on. Is there any way for me to get all the packages without downloading each individual ones?
if I can grab a copy of the Lucid packages that my laptop's downloading and dump them into a directory on the desktop computer, then upgrade the desktop in a way it makes use of the packages it wants and that I have to hand already.
for some reason my first updating was interrupted and from then i cannot update. i get the following message:
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db3 error(-30974) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - (-30974) error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm CRITICAL:yum.main: Error: rpmdb open failed [root@laptop etc]# yum repolist [Code]....
I recently had to rebuild my computer with a new HDD and decided to load the new Ubuntu 10.04 which seems to work great. I was in the middle of downloading packages from the Ubuntu Software Center when the computer decided to reboot in the middle of downloading 6 packages. I went to the Synaptic Package Manager and it said to run "sudo dpkg --configure -a Here is what I got when I did that. What do I do next to fix and continue downloading the corrupted packages?
When I try to update my packages, or install new packages, I get this error:"E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libglib2.0-0_2.26.1-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb: subprocess new post-removal script returned error exit status 1"I tried the "sudo apt-get install -f" but it didn't work.I'm running 10.10, on a Asus laptop
Ok, so I just finished correcting my driver issue with my wireless card when I'm struck with another problem....after gaining access to the net and updating my packages, ubuntu fails to boot up. It freezes at the boot screen where it runs the 5 orange dots with the ubuntu logo.
Whenever I do sudo apt-get or use the Ubuntu Software Center, I can't download anything because a message comes up saying "Action requires installation of untrusted packages: The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources." I've been trying to download GIMP and Thunderbird, so... I dunno what the problem is.
After a hiatus, I'm fussing with Fedora again. I'm using the 64 bit version of R13. A screen popped up saying I needed to apply fixes to the installion. The maintenance process fails, when tried several times.
FWIW, I get an analogous error associated with packages trying to install Flash into FireFox.
Is it possible that the package archive has been corrupted?
when ever i give yum update am geting this error. failed to use search generator: failure:repodata/318b9912817ec3309c6defc47d79e878c52a21fd1457d191bb ff060fdb7f7f8d-primary.sqlite.bz2 from rpmfusion-free-updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. I was trying to install tomcat using yum. Is there any way i can install tomcat other than yum utility. I downloaded he zip folder for tomcat which i downloaded from apace tomcat site.
having upgraded two days ago to lucid studio from karmic studio, i have had recurring issues with either a total lockout of wireless connection, despite inputting IP and WEP etc correctly and telling me it has full connectivity. my other problem was i had wireless connection, but could not connect to the repositories for updating or downloading new software.
i'm having a problem in downloading the repository indexes.its giving me the following error.""Could not download all repository indexesThe repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.[URL]ome index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.""Though its giving a msg saying check ur network connection,my net connection is fine.
Booted my laptop up for the first time in a while and ran
Code: sudo apt-get upgrade to get updates for my packages. After installing I needed a reboot since I was on kernel 2.6.35-28. Post-reboot, I get stuck on a black screen with random artifacts after the purple screen after Grub, regardless of kernel (back to 2.6.35-22 is the oldest I have) with exception to the recovery mode options. Pressing the power button will shutdown the system in what seems to be the usual manner. The screen changes to the purple with ubuntu in the middle and the dot loading bar and shuts down.
I booted into recovery mode and opted to repair packages and rebooted but to no avail. I can get into a terminal by editing the boot options in Grub swapping out " quiet splash vt.handoff=7 " with "--verbose". Currently have a terminal on kernel 2.6.38-10 Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit. Win 7 partition also boots fine.This feels like a driver issue, but I'm not sure. Boot log (/var/log/boot.log) looks fine except for these lines:
Code: fsck: fsck.ntfs: not found fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.ntfs for /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3: clean, 262541/8560640 files, 2310841/36228480 blocks init: ureadahead-other main process (723) terminated with status 4
The first 2 shouldn't be affecting my Ubuntu boot in this manner (other than failing to automatically mount my NTFS partition, which is a different problem), however the last one worries me. Doing some research on the termination status 4 of ureadahead-other I came across this page here, but am wary to just go around willy-nilly deleting things I don't know much about. It wouldn't be a great loss to simply blow the disk away and restart, but I'd rather salvage what's there if I can..
APT - it really has me mystified at times so I'm looking for an idiots guide on how to use it. I've googled and read the APT How to on the Debian site, as well as a lot of other APT pages, so I understand what it does and the command structure, but I can't seem to download one off packages from the Debian site.
I've managed to get the updates to work (ran an update the other day) so I know my source file is working (my source.list points to deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ lenny main) however I don't understand/can't figure out how to get single packages from Debian.
As an example I want to get the rsynch package which has a download page in Debian and my mirror in the source.list file can be used. However when I do apt-get rsynch I get an error message that says it can't be found.
Looking at the Debian package website it does say that the rsynch package can be requested from the subdirectory of pool/main/r/rsync/ at any one of the listed download sites (of which the site in my source.list file is one of those listed). Do I have to add the pool/main/r/rsync/ information to my sources.list file, or add it to the apt-get command?
