Fedora Installation :: Possible To Update Packages On F12 USB Live?
Jan 4, 2010
I installed F12 to a live USB stick. When I boot up the system it says there are several hundred updates available. I've tried to update packages, but when I reboot the updates that claim to have been made do not appear. The system reverts to its original state after reboot.
So is it possible to do this? Can one have persistent packages? (this does seem to work with ubuntu)
Or is F12 on a live USB stick supposed to be pretty much the same thing as having a live (read-only) CD?
What I'd really like to do is have a small version of F12 on a USB stick that has up to date packages I need while dropping the packages I don't need.
I am creating custom install media using the Fedora Core 14 DVD as a base and I have gathered all of the packages and their dependencies I require using the yumdownloader command.I made sure to download the @core group along with the ones listed above. The problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to update the media's repo information to reflect some of the updated packages I have downloaded. So when I go to install on the device, it's saying it can't read/open a certain package and you can see that it's looking for an older version because I'm guessing its repo is telling anaconda that this is the specific version to look for. I'm looking for a way to "update" the repo found on the installation media.
I just installed ubuntu 10.10, and im triying to update, when i uncheck the packages that i dont want and click on the "install updates" button in the update manager, the update manager check it again and download the packages that i dont want
In the future I plan on switching video card brands and I was wondering if there is a way to delete or edit packages on a hard disk install from a Live CD? Also, will switching brands of video card cause a fedora install to crash upon booting?
I recently upgraded from F13 to F14 using "preupgrade". This is the first time I've used preupgrade. So far, F14 is running OK. There are some leftovers from F13 and I'm wondering if this is correct.
Q1: There are 176 F13 packages remaining. [alfrugal@localhost Documents]$ rpm -qa | grep fc13 | wc -l 176 Is this OK? FWIW, after the upgrade, I ran "package-cleanup --orphans" as recommended by the "preupgrade" page on the Fedora Project wiki.
Q2: Also, my GRUB menu was correctly updated for F14, but it still contains the three entries it had for F13. Is it normal for the preupgrade process to require the user to clean up the obsolete entries from the GRUB menu?
I need to substitute the openssl package modified by ubuntu with the original openssl package because I have to collaborate to a university project that use SSLv2 protocol.I tried to install it manually (by ./config and make) but nowaday the system continues to use the old one (0.98o-5ubuntu1).What i have to do to substitute the modified version with the original one?
I'd like to update /etc/apt/sources.list with all the packages available on packages.debian.org and packages.ubuntu.com without apt-get, aptitude, and synaptic then trashing my system by trying to update all the obsolete packages. (I'm stuck with 8.04) I only want to update the packages / install new ones with their dependencies as I request them. How do I do that?
9.04 has not been updating and is giving these messages.

I can't seem to figure out what's going on here. Whenever I use synaptic to attempt to add/remove anything I receive the following error: (Reading database... 65%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting: files list file for package 'dnsmasq-base' is missing final newline E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2) A package failed to install.
Going from 10.10 to 11.04 and I get this message:[URL].. I honestly have no idea what most of those are (yes I'm a huge noob), so it's possible that it's necessary to delete some of them, but Handbrake? Open Office? Why would it delete those? What possible reason could there be?
Additionally, what does "no longer needed" mean? Is it going to delete those packages too?
I've been a long time ubuntu/debian user, and I decided to give fedora a try. Durng my first set of updates after install, the updater (gpk) seemed to stall on an 'updating libraries' step (it lasted for over 12 hours). Anyway, I force quit the program, restarted the system, and all appears fine. What I wanted to ask is this; is there some way to check the yum log to see if the update completed successfully, or an equivalent to 'apt-get -f install' to fix any broken/partially installed packages.
I would like to know if it is possible to disable apt-get's on a few packages I have compiled from sources : I have removed some ext from PHP and I don't want it to upgrade itself to a new version when there is one.
A few weeks ago, i installed Ubuntu Desktop 10.10. I installed several of my previously used programs and am now having trouble with the update manager. It refuses to download updates; insisting that it does not trust the source. The details in the error message indicate that the problem is with a package for Banshee Media Player. I am posting a link for a video I made that displays this problem. [URL]
I would like to update my Kernel from 22.214.171.124 (from liveCD) to the 126.96.36.199, because of my modem problem (huawei e 169).>UBUNTU 9.10< I know that I can do it trough synaptic- but the problem is when I restart my pendrive, the kernel want be recognized. I think I have change something in some boot documents- but it looks here everything a little bit different than with HDD install:there is no menu.lst , etc.
Is there a way to rollback the packages installed in the last software update?I cannot reach the gui login screen (x-server) ever since my last software update.Hence cannot login.Too bad the old xserver restart key (crtl+alt+bkspace) dont work anymore.Also, I dont remember the command to view the system logs to know what went wrong.
After yum -y update I get this at the end of the process. What should I do, have no idea...is it mandatory to erstart with right kernel for each package?

How to update packages from Media Instead of Internet Repository. When I install package using the below command the packages are getting updated from Internet repository. How can I update the packages from media (ex fedora 12 dvd).
I have an old laptop running Fedora Core 6. I need to update it for a project at work. I am using my home network and a hard wired connection. I can ping my router, and ifconfig shows my interface is active and has the right IP address assigned. When I try to open the GUI package updater, it fails to connect. Opening an browser also fails to connect. My firewall is turned off. I suspect a service is not starting, but everything I can think of is running. why layer 3 is working, but my apps won't connect to the Internet?
I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?
