Fedora Networking :: F11 Official Repositories - Cannot Download Packages?
Jul 12, 2009
I'm user of Fedora 11. Back this weekend the official repositories works 100% I can download packages with 100 kbytes. This weekend cannot download packages, only with 3 Kbytes! PTM! What is happening?
I installed openSUSE 11.3 off the 4.7 GB dvd two days ago. The first thing that I noticed was that the official repositories didn't seem to work. Starting the Install/remove software manager would throw three "Package-kit error: repo not available file (in one of the cases) repomd.xml not found on medium (the url of the official repository)".I searched for a solution online, but couldn't find anything, except for the downtime on Aug 21(I didn't have the system installed back then). The last thing that I did was to edit the URL of each repository by simply copy-pasting the URL from the website, in case of gremlins. This stopped the twelve or so error messages each that I used to get each time Install/remove started to autorefresh.Now I just get one error - WarningThere was an error in the repository initialization.Which tells me as much as the first series, but definitely saves me time
I am running Suse 11.1 64bit, with KDE, recently I received a pop up on my screen, "something about update problems", I used Yast 2 and selected online Update and it couldn't find updates for Nvidia and froze at that point. I dis-enabled that repository and refreshed all of the remaining Repositories individually and it seemed to work. I then went to the repositories listing and selected "Add" and selected "community" repositories and received the following: WARNING Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. What is my problem? How do I acquire the list of community repositories? I can live with out the Nvidia repository for now but would eventually like to get it back.
I download all packages of Fedora 12 64 bit and all rpmfusion packages , all of them free and nonfree. all of them is near 20GB, I download all of them by rsync.I download them in work,In home I use Fedora12 64 bit and do not have internet connection , I copy all packages with USB flash and copy them to my Fedora box , and I want install VLC and other codecs and Nvidia driver for some games.What I must do ?I said again I do not have internet connection in home but I have all packages , free and nofree and rpmfusion packages
this one might be simple BUT, where tha heck, I can download some non official software for slackware,I can use installpkg, pkgtool or even gslapt, but WHERE can I download packages or even better set as source for slapt-get.For example two applications: blender 2.49bor due to suckage of craps like mplayer that is installed by default with slackware VLC media player
I'm quite new to Linux/CentOS. I installed LAMP from official CentOS repositories and I'm wondering why the PHP (5.1.6) or MySQL (5.0.77) versions are so old. Why there is now the latest versions available.
Is it recommended to use these versions or should I update to the newest one - if so could you plesae provide me some links to official repositories&tutorials.
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 have 2 nic cards. One I use for my LAN and the other for my WAN (ftp, web). I am using a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. If I disconnect the WAN I can download packages (apt-get), ping etc. If both nic cards are active I cannot do either. This behavior is the same whether or not iptables is enabled. BTW I am using the server version. I was only able to find examples that used a GUI, nothing from the command line.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. I was unable to connect to the Internet with Firefox or to download packets using command line or Synaptic Package Manager, or run updates. I disabled IPv6 in Firefox and am now able to browse, but I still cannot connect to repositories, I cannot download packages, I cannot run updates either.
I was wondering if there is a possibility to configure yum in such way that it would download and install packages at the same time?What i mean is that after downloading certain package it continues to download the next one but at the same time it is installing the one it has already downloaded? Is it possible in fedora? I remeber back when i was using openSUSE 11.2 that the behaviour of the installer was configurable and would let users to choose if they want to download all packages first and then install them or download a package, keep downloading next ones but install the already downloaded ones .
I want to install some things on machine without internet connection. There is something like packages.ubuntu.com or debian.packages.org for Fedora? Well - as you can see on this site i can see packages with depends (ex. frozen-bubble): click to Debian packages site, click for packages.ubuntu.com. I can download packages with their depends easily from that sites. How i can get rpm with depends? I need to collect everything on usb flash drive and install on off-line machine without any problems. I can download single rpm with yumdownloader but i need depends too. Koji not satisfy me - no depends info. I need to download few apps from repo (on machine with internet connection), but with their depends - how? Or maybe there is something like Keryx for rpm-based distros?
I have downloaded fedora 9 iso to my xp os so I can dual boot my machine. I can't seem to find a place to plug up my RJ-45 to download the extras package in an RPM or a tar file so that I can transfer it onto my linux os so I need a wireless site to download from.
I noticed that the official Slackware packages don't contain static libraries. The SlackBuild scripts from slackbuilds.org or from Slackware DVD usually contain --disable-static option to prevent building the .a file. And if configure script doesn't allow such option, the .a file is deleted before the package is created.I am wondering what is the reason for that? Is it just the matter of conserving disk space? Are there also other reasons?
I've been trying to install a few programs with the basic Debian repositories on my Jessie edition, but I keep getting a "broken packages" error and "cannot be installed" error, and the programs won't install.
I went to other repositories, e.g. Mint and Ubuntu, and with these included in my sources.list file, I was able to install the desired programs.
If the programs are listed in Debian and the dependecies as well, why would they not install?
After upgrading to 11.2 I'm trying to install required codecs for restricted formats and following the advice that is given, and starting at "Step 1", making sure that I have at least the OSS, non-OSS etc. repos.
For some reason, when I try to add community repositories through yast, I get a Warning pop-up, stating "Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined".
Am I doing something wrong? If tried about 20 times...and so far no luck.
Just reinstalled kde 11.3 on second hd. Everything seems to be okay except for getting additional repositories. Under yast I get the message unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. Any ideas on what I can check?
I recentley added a few extra repositories to apt, and I can use them well normally.However, today I needed a deveploment library only found in the "unofficial" software repos. I did a search in synaptic, but nothing shows up except the offical packages, or if the unofficial ones do show up, they don't all show up. All my new repos have the new key added as well.How can I get synaptic to index all of my packages, regardless of where they come from?
I am still having trouble installing Debian 6.0.1a (Squeeze) from either CD #1 (KDE version) or netinst version. I tried for a few months to install Squeeze with KDE desktop; now I am trying to build a server, which seems easier (no X.org and KDE problems to worry about.)
Part of the problem common to all my failed attempts (about a dozen!) seems to be that the installer tries to get packages or updates/upgrades from repos but for some reason fails.
I have a commercial all-in-one dslmodem/router/firewall which has very, very limited monitoring capabalities, just enough to show that the PC in question contacted the expected repos (I tried several in different regions) and also shows that no DNS requests failed during that time frame. I did try decreasing the security of the commercial firewall, but that seems to make no difference. I did try to save the install logs, but they didn't fit on a floppy. Any idea what could be going wrong?
After testing Opensuse 11.4 since it was released, I decided to go back to version 11.3. After installing 11.3 I find I cannot add the community repositories, such as Nvidia, Packman, etc. It attempts to download the repository list but gives the following error message : Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. I've used this DVD before and it installed perfectly. I then tried installing 11.3 from a network cd but got the same error when trying to add a repository. At this point I don't know what to do. Joe
