After an update in mid-February I can no longer get Network Managero run anyinterface. I tried downgrading ppp, but that did not help. I have tried to delete all devices, but there is no user interface from which I can do that. Network Manager does not appear in any system tray. I even did a complete remove and reinstall, to no avail.This is true on both 32 and 64 bit Fedora 12, and on laptops, desktops and VBox VMs.Here is what I see in messages.log:
Code: Mar 27 12:09:46 vmf11x64 NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0) Stage 4 of 5 (IP6 Configure Timeout) scheduled...
The driver has crashed X and before I had a chance to find RPMfusion instructions on dealing with initrd, I removed the package just to keep X running.Uninstalling the package does not restore kernel and Xorg operation. I am still in VESA mode.Although they claim they don't put stuff in non-standard places and use RPM, still there is something left over, as nuoveau driver no longer loads.Now that system configuration is all over the place, it is not clear what they actually changed or replaced.
I installed a piece of software that is not in the Fedora repository using Code: make install. [the software is BloGKT, actually a Python script and various supporting parts] now the software doesn't work well and I want to remove all its components, including the entry in the application menu. can anyone tell me how to remove a package that is not in the repo? is there a command?
I have suffered the same fate as many who have yum updated to the latest NetworkManager; "The system network services are not compatible with this version."Could this faulty package then be removed from the repos so that many others do not suffer the same fate
I am using Fedora Core 4. While trying to install a package or update yum repository I get the following error
# yum update Setting up Update Process Setting up repositories Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: legacy-base failure: repodata/repomd.xml from legacy-base: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
tried to search the web but couldn't find any working solution.
I have googled it profusely but still am quite confused about how to remove an svn repository:I have accidentally imported the contents of a directory into the repo instead of the directory itself and now I need to remove everthing from the repo (in fact i would like to just delete the repo and re-create it)."you can svn delete directories, but if you want to get rid of the entire repo forever-ever, just delete the database file from your repo directory. since the project info is self-contained in its .svn directory, the correct way to delete a repository is actually to delete the directory. "
- what is this 'database file' being referring to? - what is 'the directoy' being referred to?
I downloaded RealPlayer and tried to install it. Well the install screwed up and now I am trying to remove it and I'm not sure how. I just tried to just reinstall it by double-clicking on the rpm file and it give me an error saying it already installed.

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 installed Debian without desktop enviroment and then I aptitude installed fluxbox, everything worked fine, but I wanted to try LXDE so I purged fluxbox and installed LXDE.But my old computer is too slow now. I purged the LXDE, but it is still here and it didn`t remove as many packages as it installed them, I also removed lxde-core, but it continues to work.
How could I get back to non-desktop enviroment without reinstalling the whole system?

Just need my own repository for storage away from the laptop....still have the deb on hand just in case I want to reinstall....
Here is my issue. I installed dropbox and removed it. I noticed in the first start of dropbox it installs a daemon called dropboxd. Is dropboxd removed when you uninstall? I uninstalled and purged. I just want to make sure the daemon is gone as well. Trying to be as tidy as possible. Less code rolling around the better.
I need to reinstall both windows and ubuntu as dual boot. I tried to install windows 7 from the recovery partition but after windows starts the recovery and then does its first reboot it always loads to the grub prompt. I booted with ubuntu 10.10 live cd and wiped off all the partitions except the windows recovery partition and I tried sudo ms-sys -m /dev/sda3 which is supposed to restore the windows mbr but still when I reboot it just boots to the grub command prompt with windows only partially installed.
If I completely wiped off the old ubuntu partition and the windows partition then how can grub still be loading up? where is grub located? How to completely remove grub. I don't have a windows recovery cd, I only have the recovery partition which is still intact. I have tried to install ubuntu first and make an ntfs partition but when I try to install windows the recovery partition program says there is not enough space to install windows but there is 260gb.
I want to completly remove wine, so i figured that using the package manager, and apt-get remove will make it work. Using apt-get, i get the message that there is no wine installed, even though the package manager is telling me the opposite. After that i removed wine via the package manager, but i can still run wine. And that is the point where i am getting completly lost, how the hack can i run a removed program? I did compile and install wine myself once, so the problem might hide there. But how to i remove a program without the routines of the package manager?
I seriously need to deinstall wine completly to figure out a couple misterious problems i am having lately.
I'm installing CentOS from the netinstall in Virtualbox now. I was about to post a different thread because Anaconda kept crashing on me. Whenever I would try to uncheck Gnome, clicking next would always fail. I really don't want Gnome, but I need to get the VM installed, so I just accepted the default software selection. (It's not an iso problem either because I originally tried the DVD as well.)I've been using Linux for several years, but I need to use a GUI-less server. I found some instructions on how to disable X by entering runlevel 3, but that's not what I want to do. Is there a meta-package that I can remove "yum remove" and it will remove all the GUI dependencies, or perhaps something like "yum groupremove"?
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?
I am trying to streamline a desktop install into a more streamlined server-esk install. I have edited the inittab to change the runlevel at startup to 3. How do I now remove KDE completely? Also are there any other large programs I need to uninstall?
