Having assorted problems accessing v11.3 update repositories. The issue appears to be either with IPv6 or my ancient 2Wire 1000SW router.
Last week, I replaced Ubuntu with openSUSE on this Dell laptop. When I couldn't access repositories initially, I turned off IPv6 in YaST, with no luck. Turning off IPv6 in Firefox did allow me to see opensuse.org and other otherwise unavailable sites.
I edited my primary/default repo list in YaST with IP addresses replacing DNS names with great success -- except for the non-OSS repo, which YaST couldn't find. Anyway, I had a successful update!
Now adding repos to the default set is the problem. When going to Add > Community Repositories, I get the "Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined" message. Trying to add Packman.unixheads.com either with named URL or with IP address doesn't work either (it was curious that when using the IP address, YaST still says it can't find Packman.unixheads.com).
When I read that Packman was converting all its servers to IPv6, just for grins I went back to YaST and Enabled IPv6 again. After a reboot, I tried adding Packman again. No luck, but suddenly editing the default openSUSE non-oss repo and entering the IP address WORKED!
One more data point: I tried using a few 1-click installations from the collection at opensuse-community.org. Most failed, but for some reason, I could add the NVIDIA repository!
While I think the simple solution is probably replacing the router I've had since 2004, I'd like to avoid that particular expense right now. I'll note that I never had a problem accessing (K)Ubuntu repositories.
I'm wondering if there's a zypper or YaST config file I can edit that might allow access to the Community Repo list (though the Packman experience is somewhat discouraging in that regard). Is there something weird going on with MirrorBrain too? Figuring out how to handle IPv6 might be relevant here too.
I have upgraded successfully to 11.4 I note that with zyper repo ls I have 11.4 and 11.3 repos. The 11.3 are all disabled. Do they need to stay in 11.4 or can I remove and delete them - will probably do this via YAST?
All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.
I don't know why I can't get listed the installed and not installed packages in the "Add and Remove Software" utility in Fedora 11 with KDE Desktop. I have already used it with no problems, but for some reasons I had to reinstall the system, and I got this problem since then. So, I can't remove packages because the list is empty (picture attached), and for the same reason I can't add new sofware from the Installation DVD.
I accidentally clicked on a wireless network once and now every time I boot up, it tries to connect to that network and asks for the password. I have to keep pressing cancel and then it connects to my regular network.
I tried fiddling around with the network settings but I couldn't see any place where I could remove that network from the 'List of preferred networks' or at least try to prevent it from connecting automatically.
How to remove this network from the list of preferred networks? Edit some file somewhere maybe?
I m using pidgin2.5.5-1 that is old version of pidgin because of some proxy issue, I dont want to update it anymore but it keeps on showing its update in package updater its very annoying...How could i get rid of it ?I want package updater show all updates except this...that is permanently remove it from update check list.
I got Fedora 10 and I installed a proftpd server it works in local network but not from outside. Actually I can see it checks for user and pass but when it has to list the user dir it freeze. The server is behind a router. I am using passive ports 60000-60100 and I forwarded all connections to and from 21 to 60000-60100 onto internal (192.168.0.109) IP address.
I installed squid on my machine, and for a while it was starting up automatically when the computer would turn on, and I would only have to reconfigure on ip-up for the new dns, etc.Now for some reason, I notice that squid isn't even started.To fix this, I wrote a start up script in /etc/rcS.d/ that runs:/etc/init.d/squid3 startAnd I notice it still isn't starting.So I write "/etc/init.d/squid3 start" and put it in my ip-up.d/ script.Everything in the script is being executed, but the squid server.I've tried reinstalling squid... what am I missing? where does the computer start these services?
I can add my own wallpapers to the list shown in the Desktop Activity Settings box, but can't find a way to remove them again. Is there a control for this somewhere else, or a config file somewhere that I could at least edit manually? I am using KDE 4.4.2, with the kubuntu-desktop package installed on top of Lucid/GNOME.
That is my problem:First i use Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Gnome.Wen i select file and pres right mouse button on it an select Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Open with other Application" I see very long list and some Application their don't work
have installed some programs from source and found no trace where and what were installed and I would like to remove those installed files. So I am looking for any script or app to list all orphaned (I mean not related to any installed package) files. I am using Ubuntu Server 9.10 without any fancy X11 stuff so console version is preferred. I have found bitbleach and computer janitor in this forum but they are X11 apps.
I want to know if there is any way that one could remove the user list from the login screen requiring the user to type in their user name. I am not quite sure why this feature is not implemented and it is one of the very few things I don't like about Lucid but hopefully there is a fix for it.
In Ubuntu 9.10 I was able to remove the user list from gdm. However in 10.04 I am unable to do this. I searched the forums with no luck. I opened gconf-editor using sudo and went to apps>gdm>simple-greeter. I then checked disable_user_list. After complete shutdown, I was still placed in the list screen. I checked gconf-editor and the disable_user_list was still checked.
I've got a server running on some old hardware miles away from me, to convert to a newer version seems counter-productive as I'm happy with what's there, just want to add a few packages, but yum can't find the repos - have they been totally removed or are they still mirrored somewhere?
I accidently deleted every file in /etc/yum.repos.d. I would be very glad if anyone could send me the default configuration for the default repositories. I am stuck very badly. Can't download/update using yum. If you could send me your entire yum.repos.d folder there would be nothing like it.
i m mounting one ext4 partition onto some folder inside /home, have added things on fstab but now i dont want this thing to be listed on the desktop or on the places menu. i m using karmic.i have checked gconf-edit but
