Fedora :: Won't Let Me Remove Gnash / Force It To Delete?

Jul 18, 2009

I have messed up, I downloaded something about gnash through the repositories trying to get a flash player to feed my little house on the prairie on ..... habit(I know, addiction is sad). Anyway, it didn't work but now it won't let me remove it. I have flash player installed but it's doing the same thing as gnash by itself, I have black lines across the screen instead of a flash player. Is their some way I can force it to remove gnash?

I'm new to Fedora and not sure how things are done so please keep that in mind while you're trying to help me fix my stupid mistake. Thanks

Fedora :: How To Force A Package "downgrade"

May 28, 2010

I installed F13 on a system by doing and install from an F12 Live USB key and then doing an update do F13. Unfortunately the upgrade failed to update a package because it thought the F12 package was more recent. I can't just do a clean install of F13 because I'm in Massachusetts and the system is in Chicago so I need to be able to fix this remotely.

I tried to install Google Chrome. I'm getting the following error, package nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc12.x86_64 (which is newer than nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-17.fc13.i686) is already installed As you can see the F12 package is -19 and the F13 package is -17 which is confusing yum. Is there a way to force yum to install the F13 package?

Fedora :: There's No Package In 'Add And Remove Software' List

May 7, 2010

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.

Fedora Installation :: Add / Remove Software / No Package Cache Is Available

Jan 28, 2009

I now want to review and possibly remove some software with the Add/ Remove Software Tool. When I try to locate installed packages I get an error that reports 'No Package Cache Is Available'. It also says 'the package list needs to be rebuilt', 'this should have been done by the backend automatically'. When I click on 'More Details' it says 'Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify it's path and try again'.Can anyone please explain what's going on, and what I need to do to get the package list rebuilt?

Ubuntu :: How To Force Reinstall Package After Removing

Jun 7, 2010

I'm trying to re-install tomcat6 after removing it and all it's dependencies, but it got corrupt when trying to re-install. I'm on Ubuntu Sever Lucid 10.04 LTS with command line only.

I started with:
sudo apt-get auto-remove tomcat6
Then I deleted the /etc/tomcat6 directory manually since it contained file settings I didn't want. I assumed it would automatically install the missing files.

Then I tried re-installing tomcat6 as follows:
sudo apt-get install tomcat6

This yielded an error:
Setting up tomcat6 (6.0.24-2ubuntu1) ...
chmod: cannot access `/etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing tomcat6 (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Setting up authbind (1.2.0build3) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
How are you supposed to completely remove a package and re-install it normally?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Remove / Install Package Via Yum - Invalid Mode

Jun 2, 2011

Since the Fedoraplus site is down, I alternatively downloaded the FC14 version in hopes that it would work. Instead, I now receive the following error any time I try to remove or install a package via yum:
[Errno 22] invalid mode ('w') or filename: '//var/lib/yum/rpmdb-indexes/conflicts.tmp'
I'm pretty sure the issue here is a typo in a file (the extra "/" in the path to "conflicts.tmp").

Ubuntu Installation :: Force A Package Version Via Command Line?

May 19, 2010

I have the suspicion that the latest gdm update (2.28.1-0ubuntu2.2) broke something because the login screen isn't displayed anymore on my desktop. My question is the following:How can I revert an update or force a package version via command line? It's pretty straight forward via Synaptic but I only have access to the recovery command line so that is not really an option.

Ubuntu :: Update Installed Packages List Or Force Removal Of Package?

Jul 21, 2011

I was working on my flash drive install of Ubuntu, when I squashfsed my /usr. Long story short, I some how ended up with a working /usr, but with a few packages marked as installed, but not having its components installed (emacs). When I try to remove emacs (emacs23-nox), it gives me numerous errors about files (all relating to emacs) not existing (all in /usr). Thus my questions are as follows:

1) Is there a way to force the removal without it caring about missing packages?


2) Is there a way to reload which packages are installed by checking which files exist, etc?


3) Should I just nuke and re-install?

Software :: Force Synaptic/update Manager/aptitude To Accept A Broken Package?

Nov 9, 2010

I forced the install of graph-tool package [URL]. Now it is of course tagged as broken, so update manager wont do anything. But I want to accept it, I know it is not really broken. (In fact, graph-tool_xxx.deb asks for libcgal4. squeeze only has libcgal5, so I am betting this is not an issue, as far as graph-tool is concerned.)

Ubuntu :: How To Remove The Package

Jun 17, 2010

10.04 installation (that worked fine for weeks) does not boot anymore (soft lockup). After some googling I suspect that the problem is the installation of the hostap_utils-package that I performed the last time I could use it. I am on a Thinkpad X30 without CD-drive and don't have my docking station at hand, but fortunately I still have a working 8.04 installation on it and I from that I can mount the 10.04 partition.

So my question is: Is there a good way to remove a package from a 10.04 installation when you cannot boot it directly but have access to the filesystem? Alternatively could someone please post all the files that belong to the hostap_utils package so I can just delete them manually (even though that probably is not a clean way to remove a package..).

Ubuntu :: Cannot Remove The Package Kdm

I had installed some kde app a while ago which I didn't want anymore so I uninstalled it and noticed that I didn't need the million kde dependencies that program had required. So I uninstalled all those, and everything went fine except for kdm which gives me the following error:


$ sudo apt-get purge kdm
[sudo] password for user:
Reading package lists... Done


I was able to autoremove it, just not purge it (removing the config files left over).

Ubuntu :: How To Remove Package I Can't Find?

May 28, 2011

I couldn't find an amd64 version of the package I wanted, so I forced the architecture on the i386 version I found. (The package in question is xinput-calibrator, so that I can finally get my touchscreen to work.) I later found and added the repository that has the 64 version and tried to install it. It won't install the 64 version because I already have the i386 version. But it also won't let me remove the i386 version.
