I am unable to download rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm from [URL]. i always get a error 404 -Not found. But i am sure my internet is working fine. I tried from windows, Fedora 14 got the same error message all the time.
I use Fedora 15.Not sure if I understand how EPEL is related to rpmfusion. Is EPEL a branch of rpmfusion or are they a completely different projects? What other major 3-rd party repositories would you recommend for Fedora?
I have a laptop with an nvidia graphics card: GeForce 9200 Nouveau causes problems, I can't boot the Live F14 CD except in safe graphics mode. I want to install F14. I have F12 and use kmod-nvidia How do I tell the installed F14 to boot in safe graphics mode? Some command line parameter? Or alternatively: how do I get the rpmfusion repos written into yum.repos.d? After that I can install kmod-nvidia. if I can't boot into GUI, I don't know how to write to /etc/yum.repos.d
I started with a fresh install of fedora 12. I have never encountered this problem before but yum seems to stall when I install rpmfusion packages. I have tried this multiple times, it works as long as I do not install them.
It stalls after this line.
I am guessing it has to do with the rpmfusion servers/mirrors? I just want to install the propreitary wireless and graphics card drivers, can this be done without using rpmfusion? (i.e. alternatives to kmod-wl and kmod-nvidia)
Something I haven't see explained or discussed here. On a new install should we do a full update and then setup the rpmfusion repositories or setup the rpmfusion repositories and then do a full update?
Unfortunately things like h264enc and I'm sure others have moved on ahead and the dependencies on the x264 libraries means things like ffmpeg, mencoder, gstreamer, vlc, avidemux are having issues. With major dependencies it's difficult to upgrade the individiual components. A couple of examples, ffmpeg requires a newer build as it has some issues with MS's dvr-ms format. Apparently it was fixed in a newer release of the code. Another is some of the encode parameters in x264 being used in h264enc such as "weightp", "mbtree" which appear to be only supported in newer versions of the x264 libraries. Any chance that this is being looked at and newer and more recent builds of x264, and then I suspect with mencoder, ffmpeg etc...?
I opened a bug report on this in the RPMFusion bugzilla and other people have asked on the mailing list over there, without an answer.why the Fedora 14 repos are empty? See: [URl] Both i386 and x86_64 are empty in both the free and nonfree trees. Though strangely the updates trees for F14 are populated.
I was one of those chomping at the bit to get F15 going, and as a result I had enabled the Rawhide repos before the F15 repos were posted. Now that the F15 repos at RPMFusion are there, I should move off Rawhide, correct? And this is as simple as removing the existing repo files from /etc/yum.repos.d and then installing the new ones from RPMFusion? No extra steps necessary?
when RPMfusion will have the ATI catalyst driver for Fdedora 14 in its repo? If it is going to take a log time then I might just install it from ATI's site, but I'd rather not go through all the trouble if I don't have to.
I am wondering if there is someone who have succeeded in installing the driver for nVidia GT 330M from RPMFusion in Fedora 13.
I followed the instructions here [url], namely,
1. recreate the initrd manually
2.yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE
It didn't work. I also tried the method mentioned at the section 'Troubleshooting', but it did not either.
The trouble I encountered after rebooting is : The progress bar changed from an icon at the center to three lines at bottom. After the three lines reached at the end, the whole screen just went to blank.
I am guessing that the three lines, instead of the icon, only shows if your video card is not so powerful. And In my case, the reason could be the driver didn't work properly.
I have Fedora 13 in a VPS. I cannot work with yum. I got this error: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try # yum list Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again.
Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'> Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in <module> main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main code....
It mentioned bug report but I don't know where that is. I'll try later.
Today I installed Fedora12 from the DVD, so this is my first contact with all of you. The last years I ran very well with gentoo, but the time for system maintenance got to big the last few times I updated the system, so I decided to change and here am I. The Problem: My system is newly installed from the DVD and I was trying to run the first update, but got the following errormassage by KPackageKit:
Code: Error Type: Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 710, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args, args[1:])
It occured after informing me about the amount of packages that need to be updated and a message about some dependencies that have to be newly installed. At the moment I'm a bit lost about what to do. Also I realy don't know which system-information would be useful - let me know and I will answer.
I installed Fedora 13 in my new system from DVD image. Now I want to update all repositories. I coul'nt update. error message as below: Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again
I installed FC10, but do not find xfig (command not found)..then I do password:xxxxxxx, and then do the following $yum install xfig, and I get the following error Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit [URL].. [Errno 14] HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: adobe-linux-i386.
yum is completely broken. I cannot install or update any software. yum is always throwing:
Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-12&arch=x86_64 error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 7 - "" Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again I have tried globally to disable the gpg check as stated in other threads. I have no proxies or such in yum.conf or in my bashrc. If I manually click on the link it will resolve in firefox so I am sure it is not my net connection per se, it seems yum or curl is adding a : to the end of the url thats why it wont resolve properly.
I have done a yum clean all , which didnt really help either. reinstalling the rpmfusion repos isnt an option either as I start getting curl errors in the terminal. I am really at a loss here and am completely out of ideas as I cant install any updates or software , at first I thought the repositories were having problems with the holidays but this has been going on for 4 days now. /var/log/messages isnt showing anything either.
I would prefer to be able to use the rpmfusion nvidia driver instead of the closed driver but when I try it, KDE4 runs fine for a while but then the whole display starts blinking and the cpu % goes to 99% for XMy PC is Fedora 12 x86_64, the video card is a XFX 8800GT[URL]1) installed the kmod-nvidia-190.53-1.fc12.1.x86_64 and dependencies2) blocked nouveau with rdblacklist=nouveau in grub.conf, 3) Ran: setsebool -P allow_execstack on4) fixed the xorg.conf (I had to move my old xorg.conf out of the way and merged my DontZap option back in) 5) rebootedI did not yum remove the nouveau driver,.... didn't seem necessary.My desktop will run for a while but inevitably starts flashing uncontrollably. I can't even ssh to it to run init 3 to kill X (I can ssh to it but for some reason I can't su to root to kill X).
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.
