I am new to linux. I am trying to install suse 11.3 on my desktop which has following configuration:
Intel Pentium 4 processor 32 bit 512 mb RAM 80 gb Hard Disk
I made a 20gb partition on my hard disk and formatted it as fat32 for installing suselinux on it. I changed my boot priority and booted the system from the bootable dvd. The problems are:
1). Message is displayed telling to ensure that cd 1 is in the drive. I cannot make out what this means when the dvd is already in the drive. If I press ok same message keeps coming if I press back following occurs. 2). The installation starts and asks for language and keyboard type. Then it asks me to specify the hard disk and then a message is displayed that it cannot find repository.
I am trying to update four OpenSUSE 10.3 servers. This worked once on one server, but I have been unable to repeat that success. I use yast's Online Update to select repositories, but at the end of the repository refresh they keep coming back with 'No active update source is available. Exit Online Update now?' I get this error: Download failed: File /repodata/repomod.xml not found on media: [URL]
It appears to connect to remote repositories, but always fails. Is it realistic for me to expect to update 10.3, or is it a lost cause? I am not ready to jump to 11 yet, but I am required to update them. I am a newb, so I am not clear on the process. Are package versions locked in place for specific versions of OpenSUSE? If so, how can I find out what the final versions were for 10.3 so that I can at least tell my auditors that they are as up-to-date as they can be?
Im not able to install the package mesa-32bit from this repository: Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.3. It tells me to make a huge change on architecture on many packages, plus downgrading mesa to 7.8.2 from 7.9 !
I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.
I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.
But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.
I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.
I want to upgrade Koffice to 2.1.1. When I do a search at software. [URL]...search, I see koffice2-2.1.1 available at KDE:43/openSUSE_11.2 and KDE:Backports/openSUSE_11.2.
zypper info kdebase4 shows Version: 4.3.1. OpenSUSE is 11.2. What's different about those 2 repositories? They both appear to be the same. I'd like to get updates for KOffice. I'm using it for project management.
I have a new install of opensuse 11.2 with gnome as desktop & gdm as window manager. Login OK. I added the Gnome community repositories & packman & ran an update. Now, with gdm login gives just wallpaper & no desktop. If I change to xdm as window manager I can login OK. The installed version of gdm is gdm-2.28.2-1.3.i586.
I just purchased openSUSE 11.2 x64 on DVD from osdisc.com, as well as the 5 x64 repository DVD's. The base install went fine, but when I try to add thos's to my software repositories using yast they all have the same listed name, "repository" - I can change that to show "repository disk 1" etc, but when I go to install stuff and the software installer asks for "repository disk 1" I put that in the dvd drive, and it cannot recognise it, spits it out and asks for the same disk again...hmmmm. Should I not change the default name that comes up when each DVD is added to the list? If I leave them unchanged will I be told which is the correct disk to insert, remembering that in the list they all have the same name
I have a small installation problem with openSUSE 11.2 I have read the relevant stuff in the forums for new users. I have downloaded openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586-iso and verified the file using MD5. I am currently running windows XP (SP1) on a Fujitsu Siemens V1000 laptop andI am trying to install linux from my hard drive and not from a DVD drive.
The path to the downloaded file on my windows partition is: e:/OpenSuse/openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso I have initialised installation and selected sda6 as the partition where the sourcefile is located. and when prompted for the directory, I typed " /OpenSuse/openSUSE-11.2DVD-i586.iso " The installations then proceeded through to "Initialising Package Manager" upon which I get the following message:
" Unable to create repository from url' iso:/? iso=openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso&url=hd:/OpenSuse?device=/dev/sda6"
DETAILS: Failed to mount iso:///?iso=openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso & url=hd:/OpenSuse?device=dev/sda6 on: Unable to find iso filename on source media.
History: - File:/openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso not found on medium 'hd:///OpenSuse?device=dev/sda6'
There is an option to try again at which point an additional dialog box appears and I have the opportunity to change things. Other than that, the only option is to cancel and terminate the installation. I've tried the process around 3 times, but if I'm doing the same thing then not surprising I'm getting the same result.
I am trying to add a few additional repositories to SLES 11 64-bit but I can't seem to get them added. I am trying to add Index of /repositories/server:/database but I get the error "Unable to create repository from [URL]... Try again? So I browsed that repository and then tried to add Index of /repositories/server:/database/SLE_11 but still got the error message with this new URL listed instead. I tried just the 11.2 repository and it worked - Index of /distribution/11.2/repo/oss/suse.
How or what do I need to do in order to get Index of /repositories/server:/database added to my repository?
trying to install broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop and broadcom-wl-188.8.131.52-7 for my wireless driver. The yast2 keep saying error. Don't know why. I installed opensue11.3 with not problem. Missing packman when i zypper repos command.Do anybody know why.I am very new to linux.I always been window user.
Decided today is the day to do the network upgrade of my 11.3 to 11.4. One small problem: The repository has stopped responding, right in the middle of the install! Anyone have any ideas on how to recover, or should I just wait it out?
I cannot download the timezone RPM(and other RPM's) from several repositories(I haven't found ANY that will allow me to DL the timezone RPM's and I have checked 8 so far!) This breaks the update as it will stall on any of the undownloadable(new word for O.E.D. undownloadable) RPM's
If there are e.g. multiple repositories with the same prio, which contain different versions of an RPM. What happens if an install is made and a particular package has a dependency, where no version is specified? Would all repositories of the same pri be searched and the newest RPM version be installed. OR Would simply once the RPM is found in one of those pri's simply be taken and no further searching made. So summarized when all repositories are the same priority, is the first found RPM taken or the RPM with the latest version?
I am having a problem since upgrading from OPENSuSE 11.2 to 11.4 (both 64bit). The problem goes back to some issue with repositories which is what "forced" me into an 11.4 upgrade.
So, upon completing the install, and every time I run YAST to do updates, I get a message about this: "Error refreshing service ATI Repository (http://www.ati.com/suse/11.2):" How is it that this repository entry survived the upgrade install? Ok, forget that, how do I get rid of this when I can't get it to display in the list of repositories I have?
What is even worse, I don't have ATI drivers on this system (I had uninstalled them a year ago, pulled in the NVidea, esw, etc.) as I had put an NVidea adapter card in, in place of the ATI built in (on the MOBO). Somehow that dropping of the repository didn't work, and now I have this thing in limbo? ps. I can't figure out what string to search in my file system or I'd have deleted the sucker last night during the install manual reboot.
how do i install the latest deluge release from the repository? Do Deluge have their own repository of the latest release? openSUSE repository does not have the latest release. I am in search of a bitorrent client. i have uninstalled Ktorrent, i dont want that. in windows i was used to Utorrent.
According of technical support of this repository yast is not able to handle HTTPS repository and as result yast going to point error of download failed. There are no other repository available than HTTPS.
It would be nice if someone have ideas about that? Is it really bug or is it have work around available? Idea was try with some other HTTPS repository for random software but i did not find any from the Internet.
I have everything in 11.2 working awesome and loving this experience just wish I could get this card to work.I added the repository but it gives me an error saying there is no checksum and no certificate?Can I say ignore this and install the repository so I can get at the opensource drivers? Its the only thing I am lacking in getting done.
Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.
