Fedora :: Kpackagekit Waiting For Other Tasks

Oct 3, 2010

Whenever I try to get KPackageKit to do anything, it says "Waiting for other tasks..." and just hangs. I can cancel (when there's a cancel button, but sometimes there's not) and yum runs just fine.Any advice on how to get this working? I hate hunting for the names of packages.

Fedora :: KPackageKit - Waiting For Service To Start?

Aug 6, 2010

I have a couple of problems - and am new to Fedora which, up until about three days ago, was flawless.Am using KDE on F13. (Gnome & LXDE are also installed.)First problem is easy to solve, I think. How do I prevent "inactive" windows from fading out? It's an incredibly inconvenient feature and utterly defeats the whole purpose of the "Always on Top" option! I can't seem to find the option anywhere?On to KPackageKit. It has been trying to update KDE for the last three days but always gets hung up with the message: "Waiting for Service to Start."I notice that this problem might be listed as a Bug? - but not entirely sure.Is there a straightforward solution to this or is it, in fact, a bug?It also wants me to repeatedly restart because a new Kernel has supposedly been installed.

Software :: Waiting For Other Tasks

May 26, 2010

for the past several months now, whenever the YUM-deamon goes to automatically update, it just says "waiting for other tasks" and after about 10 min it says "can't get yum lock, other program accessing yum" or something to that effect.i get the same message if i try to manually install programs using the graphical program in gNu.

is there another deamon that also could be using yum or the database for programs? i haven't had too much time to trouble shoot the past few months, so i can't give you better descriptions i'm afraid.

May 13, 2010

I just got a popup from KPackagekit saying:
Distribution upgrade available.

Do I want to do this? Is it safe to do so? Can I roll back afterwards? Is there a better way to upgrade?

Fedora :: No Documentation For KPackageKit

Jul 10, 2010

Does anyone know where to get documentation for KPackageKit? I've searched on KDEs web site and this forum without success. Also on Fedora.org and googling but nothing so far.I recently loaded this distro (F13) to try it out after using mostly openSUSE and some of the minimal distros. I'm finding there is quite a learning curve, even I started in linux with RedHat 5.1.

Fedora :: KPackageKit - Failed To Initialize Backend?

Jun 16, 2010

Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.

Fedora :: KPackageKit: Failed To Initialize Packaging Backend?

Feb 26, 2010

I have error in KPackageKit when i try to install anything or check for updates:

Failed to initialize packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously.

Details: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root.

I don't know anything about other packaging tools - I think I don't using any. Yum works fine in terminal. Reinstall PackageKit and KPackageKit files doesn't helped me. I also try to rebuilt rpm db:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb
yum clean all

I'm using Fedora 12 x86_64.

Fedora :: Firefox Hangs Too Often With Other Tasks In The Background?

Apr 14, 2010

Ever since I preupgraded to Fedora 12 Firefox has been behaving annoyingly under certain circumstances. I guess the issue is not specific to Firefox, but just that it is the most obvious example. What happens is that whenever there is another program/process in the background using CPU heavily (burning a DVD, for instance) or doing heavy disk I/O (say, Filelight scanning the root folder) Firefox hangs for a few seconds about twice every minute. If I open System Activity during such hangs the Firefox process will report "disk sleep", as if it was paused by some process management mechanism which is prioritizing the background task. Since I never observed such behaviour under similar circumstances under F11, F10 or F8 I wonder if there could be any OS setting which was changed and triggered this change of behavior. I should mention the computer has a dual-core processor.

General :: Automating Administrative Tasks In Fedora 10

Jan 10, 2011

I am a student at DeVry University, newly introduced to Fedora and Linux in general, and have a project whereby, we have been asked to consider some administrative tasks that we could automate via a script.I was wondering if there were any thoughts or directives from the community on what admin tasks you guys find to be of inestimable use in automating via a Linux script.

I am new to the Linux commands but have done a wee bit of programming before in C++ and others.I have also done basic DOS batch files before.

Fedora :: KPackageKit - "An Error Occured"?

Dec 26, 2009

Trying to install Frostwire as well as RPMFusion on Fedora 12 KDE.I simply just got an error from KPackageKit "An error occured." No additional details.I then tried to do the same with RPMFusion, where I also got the same error.I figured I'd ask here before I go any further. I know with Kubuntu I had some issues with particular packages with KPackageKit so I'd use GDebi for those. Should I do that here, or what's the proper protocol to get things like RPMFusion and Frostwire fired up?

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From 9 To 10 - DVD Waiting For GRUB To Load

Feb 10, 2009

I've just tried to upgrade my Fedora 9 (x86_64) installation to Fedora 10 using the installation DVD. The upgrade seemed to proceed very smoothly, no errors ,nor warnings, it just seemed that it is upgrading grub (yes, I chose to upgrade grub as well) and all the packages (it took about 20 minutes). However, after the upgrade was over, it asked me to reboot my computer, so that's what I did, I took out the DVD and waited for GRUB to load.

It loaded just fine, but I was quite surprised when there was no option to boot Fedora 10 in the list. Ok, so I booted into Fedora 9 which went fine, the layout changed to the new one and some programs don't run. When I looked into /lib/modules I couldn't see any fc10 kernel installed. So the question is what happened and what should I do, so that it upgrades to fc10?

Fedora :: Bash Arrows While Waiting For A Command To Complete

Jul 31, 2010

For as long as i can remember, using arrows (and home/end) in a bash shell that has a command running would print some fancy ^[[A caracters and then return the prompt at the end of this.

Now this behavior has changed. Using the arrows while a command is running actually moves the cursor on the screen. When the command completes the prompt appears at the new cursor position which is kind of strange and messes the screen.

For testing, just enter "sleep 10" and during the wait move the cursor with the arrows and home/end.

How can i get back the original behavior?

> rpm -q bash

Fedora :: Wireless Connection Hangs On Waiting For Authentication

Mar 20, 2011

Has anyone else been having problems with their wireless network connections since the network manager updates? I have two different networks that I connect to and have in the past had no problems since figuring out what files were missing and had to be either created or corrected and copied into the correct locations. I have tried everything I know to get my secondary wireless connection working to no avail(currently connected through my neighbors unprotected network), from deleting the connection, rebooting and recreating it, editing the files and copying them back into the correct locations and nothing works.

I have even had many crashes while using network manager. Using system-network-config eliminated the crashes but still does not allow the connection to connect. It attempts to connect and just hangs on waiting for authentication after prompting for the WEP key and clicking OK. What in the heck is going on since the devs created all these updates and have once again broken the most important aspect of any usable system, the network? I'm running F14 and KDE 4.6.1.

Fedora :: Minimize / Prevent The Memory Leak Other Than Waiting For The Next Version Of Gnome 3?

May 27, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15 with Gnome 3 on a 32 bit laptop. I noticed that there seems to be a huge memory leak issue with Gnome shell. When I restart it, it is around 20 MB. But it keeps rising, and after around eight hours, I noticed it was around 250 MB! I found a solution online that said to simply restart the shell if the gnome-shell memory consumption becomes too large. While this is fine as a temporary solution, I am looking for a permanent one. Is there a way to minimize/prevent the memory leak other than waiting for the next version of Gnome 3?

OpenSUSE :: KPackageKit Not Downloading Updates

Mar 29, 2011

My KPackageKit is not downloading any update, it shows updates, I click apply, I authenticate, then it asks me to accept an agreement, after which it returns to an empty KPackageKit (as if there were no updates). If I open it again, there are the possible updates again (naturally, since it didn't download anything).

Ubuntu :: Can't Install Software By KPackageKit

I mean that - when I'm choosing any soft to install or remove, the authentication was fail. Despite this, by using "apt-get" command software installs normally.

Before some time I am by my mistake was removed any groups from my linux-account. Now, my account stay in these groups:

andrew@xoompc:~$ groups andrew
andrew : andrew sudo virtualbox

Maybe I need to enter some group for installing software with KPackageKit ?

OpenSUSE :: Disable Kpackagekit / Kupdate Applet?

Apr 6, 2011

I recently installed Suse 11.4 (running KDE) and my first experiences with the new updater are not great. It seems to stall, require a lot of intervention, fail, and generally not behave nicely. I would much prefer to use zypper manually as I used to but can't find anywhere to disable this applet or process in KDE. Is there any way of disabling this so that the process and systray icon never start?
