1. I'm trying out ratpoison (a windows manager). It's cool, but a few commands weren't working - I now think that it's because Debian delivered ratpoison 1.4.3 (Feb 2008), while development has issued two more releases (the latest being 1.4.5). Should I (or should I not) install the later release?
2. IF I do, I need to figure out how to convert the tar.gz to a debian package
I recently installed 11.4 32bit on my computer at my summer home. I carry a DVD with all my /home data. Then today I noticed that all my repositories are labeled "11.3" repositories. Everything works. Here is the output from "zypper lr -d"...
# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type | URI | Service
What is the correct method of moving to the 11.4 repositories?
I am running Suse 11.1 64bit, with KDE, recently I received a pop up on my screen, "something about update problems", I used Yast 2 and selected online Update and it couldn't find updates for Nvidia and froze at that point. I dis-enabled that repository and refreshed all of the remaining Repositories individually and it seemed to work. I then went to the repositories listing and selected "Add" and selected "community" repositories and received the following: WARNING Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. What is my problem? How do I acquire the list of community repositories? I can live with out the Nvidia repository for now but would eventually like to get it back.
I just installed ubuntu because the newer versions were not working for me. So I installed 7.10 and there is no repositories that are still up. Is there any repositories that I could add from the newer ones or other distro repositories.
About 2 years ago I installed SUSE10.3 over the internet. Now the older repositories seem to have disappeared completely and I can't install any new software or little tools that I have missed. Is there any way to find 10.3 repositories somewhere or do I need to make a completely new installation every year?
I upgraded my system from 11.1 to 11.2, unfortunately after the upgrade there were no repositories set up. My notebook already has 11.2 on it, so I just copied the addresses from there and tried to update. Everytime I try zypper up, or from yast online-update. I wait for 10 min, and get an timeout error.
In this blog post I explain how to use "Install/Remove Software" to configure your repositories, which repositories you'll want to add, how to configure their priority, and updating your system with the correct versions. Musing Allowed: OpenSUSE 11.4: Repositories
I may eventually transfer some of this to the opensuse website, but I never expected it to take several days just to write this one blog post so it probably won't be soon. Still, I hope that it's helpful to opensuse 11.4 users and I wrote the post so that it was targeted to regular users primarily but also for those looking to see how the repositories have changed with the update to 11.4.
I try to install the detdeb repo, i get this error.. Only one software management tool is allowed to run at the same time close the other application e.g. 'update manager', 'aptitude' or 'synaptic' first. i have none of those open. it was working completely fine before i installled the medibuntu and get deb repos... im completely new to ubuntu and linux. the only linux i know is from hacking my wii which is basically nothing. then when i try to install ANY software, i get this error. Previous installation hasn't been completed The installation could have failed because of an error in the corresponding software package or it was cancelled in an unfriendly way. You have to repair this before you can install or remove any further software.
I've just tried to install freepascal [URL] on CentOS 5 using 'yum install fpc', and it installed package fpc-2.2.2-3.el5.1.i386. Since official stable version of freepascal is 2.2.4 (and version 2.4 will soon be released as new stable version), is it possible to update "official" freepascal in CentOS 5 repository to 2.2.4 (and later possibly to 2.4) ? I've read somewhere (wiki or website or some other place), that CentOS wont have php 5.2.5 because official CentOS repositories are never changed. Does this also apply to other software (like freepascal)?
done 11.4 update from DVD on my two laptops and I'm trying to do my home machine now.Problem is that the DVD update does not find any repos. I told the update system to set up wired network using DHCP and everything seems OK, when I check the box to use separate media during installation the system won't find any community repositories and when I specify URL it simlply won't connect to the repo. As for as I can tell there is a connection to the internet, but maybe not
I have contacted Novell by telephone and they can' support the OpenSUSE OS.I'm downloading via a library (window's XP) computer and it does not download every thing I tell it to; so I have to often go back and some times I am sure I don't go back because I don't notice or can't figure out that I'm missing something. Also when I try to download any part of the repositories I have to (to bring it home and install it on my computer openSUSE 11.4 KDE,) sit there and click right, click open in new tab, go to the next one repeat.... and then once you reach the bottom of the screen you minimize the web page, and then click save, then tell it where to save, then go to the next one.......
1: put each and every repositories into a bunch of .tarbz2 (or any other achiving method,) files (700 MB would be greate,) so I can bring them home easier; reassembling the achives is mutch easier ten not downloading what I need and it takes mutch less time.
2: send me an E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org detailing how to tell your machine: 2A: it's a sever 2b: it's serving X and X infomation 2c: when someone types in lets say "free software" my website is in the choises (in other word advertizing,) and 2d: where to send the money it gets from someone logging on to my web page.
I am running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as my Samba/LDAP PDC on my network. Unfortunately, I need to get a newer version of samba than the current repositories for 8.04 provide. I need the Samba 3.4.0 that has been updated for Ubuntu 8.10 to allow Windows 7 to join domain as outlined here (I am currently running 3.0.28a I think). Is there a way to set 8.04 to use the 9.10 repositories and use apt-get to install samba 3.4.0 from them?
I am trying to install the build-essential package on my new Jaunty install, but I seem to get 404 Not Found for all the repositories. I have tried main repositories, US ones and the ones recommended in Software Sources as being the best choice, but I get the same response. I can't install any packages because of this. Could someone help me find the repositories for this distro?
Today I was trying to install the Bespin window theme for KDE. To compile Bespin I need a few packages that I do not have installed. I googled and looked around for a few hours but I'm not sure which repo they are in. The packs are called kdebase-dev, kdelibs5-dev, libplasma-dev, kdebase-workspace-dev. How can I find these packeges?

I recently download the new 11.3 suse. I Install from the cd, and choose the update option to make it all auto-.Now I Found out that I have no Mozilla repository, Packman repository, OpenOffice one, as well as others. Then I go the repositories packages screen that repositories aren't displayed. Where can I found them ?What's new on this website that take those repositories apart ?
I am new to OPEN SUSE. I installed 11.4 without any problems. It is working fine. I did Multimedia install with oneclick option. All the updates were done. Today while going thru forums FAQ, I saw repositories list and their priorities. When I checked my repositories in YAST, there was no PACKMAN so added the PACKMAN repository. I noticed in Software Manager there is Upgrades OpenSuse-release 11.4-1.8 - 11.4-1.9! What does this mean?
I did zypper dup to move from 11.3 to 11.4. Almost everything works fine. But when I try to add community repositories I get the 11.3 repositories, not the 11.4 repositories. So there must be a .conf or .rc file somewhere telling yast that we're on 11.3 when in fact we are on 11.4. How/where can I change that? And while we're at it, how do I load a Factory repository? They do not appear in the list of Community" repositories.
After I upgraded from KDE 4.5 to KDE 4.6 I ran into a problem with changing the the status of different repoes from enabled to disabled, and vice versa. As I only did a desktop upgrade it is perhaps just a coincidence and hence the problem may be related to something different. But in any case, if I tick or untick the 'enable' or 'disable' option within the Yast module Software Repositories for the repo I wish to activate or deactivate, nothing happens. Deleting and readding the repoes has no effect, neither has rebuilding the rpm db or zypper refresh. I'm not very familiar with the command-line for these operations so I am grateful if anyone could give me a hint on what to try next.
After testing Opensuse 11.4 since it was released, I decided to go back to version 11.3. After installing 11.3 I find I cannot add the community repositories, such as Nvidia, Packman, etc. It attempts to download the repository list but gives the following error message : Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined. I've used this DVD before and it installed perfectly. I then tried installing 11.3 from a network cd but got the same error when trying to add a repository. At this point I don't know what to do. Joe
The red updater icon alerted me to about a dozen patches, which started to install, then halted with an error: Download failure from download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss. When I try to update repositories, the same error recurs for that repo and also for .../oss and download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/,
If I attempt to "register for support to get update repository," clicking on Configure Now and Next produces the same three error messages: "Failed to download", one for each repository. The screen then returns to Registration, with another error message "an error occurred while connecting to the server". Clicking on the Detail button show exactly "ERROR:"
This AMD desktop machine with this install of 11.2 has updated many times in the last few weeks. Has something changed? The update servers do respond to a ping, so they are up and apparently I have connectivity.
