Fedora :: Permanently Remove Package From Update Check List?
Sep 13, 2009
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 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'm new to GNU/Linux and recently installed Edubuntu 10.10 beta on a workplace computer. I'm currently a technology intern at a public school and want to install Edubuntu on some older computers here. I am working behind a network proxy provided by the department of education.I tried to install flashplugin-nonfree and noticed I didn't have a full package list. After running sudo apt-get update I get the error "unable to connect to[url]....
I'm thinking this might have to do with the network proxy, but for some reason I'm able to browse http:[url]... just fine in Firefox.How do I update the package list?
Edit: I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on another machine at work and it has the same issue, i.e. I can't update the package list.
I get this message when automatic update runs: Apt Authentication issue Problem during package list update. The package list update failed with a authentication failure. This usually happens behind a network proxy server. Please try to click on the "Run this action now" button to correct the problem or update the list manually by running Update Manager and clicking on "Check". When I click "Run this action now" It comes back with a whole list of items that can't be updated for various reasons
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?
I recently got an iPhone 3g and have been trying to upload music onto my device with Rhythmbox because my computer exclusively runs Ubuntu (10.04 LTS, Lucid Lynx). Rhythmbox would show files that were dragged and dropped as being on the iPhone, and they appeared in the iPhone's folders, but they weren't recognized in the iPod player. I followed a variety of forum threads to try to fix the problem, but ended up creating a whole new set of problems with my package manager.
I get this error message before package manager opens: E: Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
And this message after I close the first error message window and the package manager opens: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
'E:Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.' Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this? If it isn't already apparent, I am very inexperienced working with ubuntu, so the more detailed the response, the better.
Ubuntu 10.04, update manager: the package "libmyth-perl" shows up, but is greyed. I have purged all myth-tv (assuming this package belongs there) from my system, but I am unable to remove this package from the update manager.
I've been google'ing around recently for some good solutions for creating local yum "update" repositories without syncing entire repositories. (or adding hundreds of exclude statements in config files)
I have several boxes with a common base build (centos 5.5/x86_64), one has nagios3, another has apache, and another tomcat6 (also a couple of others) For tomcat and nagios I'm obviously using 3rd party repositories (jpackage, epel, rpmforge to name a few) Everything is installed via RPM from kickstart.
I would like to make an updates repository which contains the updates for everything that's installed (including centos base).
Updates will be downloaded on a separate box, but not sure how to get the list of packages required on that box where the packages are not actually installed. I've looked at reposync and mrepo, but appear to be syncing from what's available rather than what's required.
I was hoping that I can provide an "rpm -qa" output, compare this to a "yum list" or perhaps running "yum check-update" on a list rather than installed packages. I could then use the yum-downloadonly module to get the packages which have changed from available sources.
I have recently taken delivery of a Dell Inspiron mini netbook with Ubuntu on, and I am new-fangled .install updates, I clicked the (orange down-arrow) button, and it compalined "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.24-22-lpia_2.6.24-22.45netbook9_lpia.deb: files list file for package `libxcb-shape0' is missing final newline"
I am new to Debian but not Linux-based systems. I have been experimenting a lot with Debian Lenny/Squeeze. I am growing more comfortable each day with the Debian design. Yet there remain many unexplored areas. I am creating a migration check list. Things to check, prepare, or reconfigure when moving from one Linux-based system to Debian.
I have a good computer background and my current check list probably is fairly good. Yet I would appreciate input and opinions from experienced Debian users of things to watch in such a migration. Login defs, passwd/group files, different directory locations, keymaps, services and daemons, etc. I am not too concerned with the desktop as I plan to stick with KDE 3.5 for a while and I can basically move those settings across.
I have spent hours installing different packages and have everything pretty much how I want them. Is there a way to get a list of all the packages and/or save it in a way that should I need to reinstall, I do not miss anything
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 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?
While trying to install a package using gpk-application ("Add/Remove Software" under System Tools), I accidentally checked the "Do not show this message again" checkbox, and now gpk-application does not list the package dependencies anymore.
I tried to go back to listing the dependencies, however, I could not find a way to do it. How do I revert to the default behavior, i.e., having gpk-application listing the dependencies again?
I am a newbie and I am compiling a kernel in order to reduce the bootup time. I have a question as follows.
I am trying to remove a module. I used rmmod and modprobe. I can remove the module, but it is loaded again after reboot. How can I remove a module permanently? The module that I am trying to remove is lp.
Recently I have installed Fedora 10. It comes with firefox 3.xx by default. Now I was wondering if there is any way through which i can update it to 3.5 version though yum. I have tried yum update firefox but it did not work and returns following messages Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update I know that one way to update is download the latest Tar package and use it, but I want to totally remove my previous installation and use solely one package i.e. firefox 3.5.
I got this problem where my USB ports don't work. So if I do the command:
modprobe -r ehci_hcd
it fixes it. I can put it in the /etc/rc.local so that it runs every time when the server reboots. But, I want the ehci module removed without ever being loaded because sometimes the server goes through an fsck and the module is loaded and therefore I cannot use my IPMI to access the server.
I believe that my kernel has it within it because blacklisting the module does not work. I've tried remaking the initrd with this:
add module to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname-r).img $(uname -r)
and that didn't work. I've searched on how to do it but nothing is really clear. I would like to know what the command would be to do this. I use Fedora 8.
I would like the ehci_hcd module to not be loaded so that if the server goes through an fsck, the module is still not loaded.
