OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - Repository Signature Required For New Updates

Jan 13, 2011

Today, shortly after booting my OpenSUSE 11.3 I got this popup. [URL]. I guess it was caused by the Updater Applet when checking the repos for new updates. But what does it mean? Why do I get this now and not when adding the repo. It seems to belong to the filesystems repo and I have indeed added that some time ago (in order to install davfs2). I'm not sure what it means to accept a signature.

Normally with public key infrastructure, you need to accept other's public keys or certificates containing their public keys. And before doing so you need to verify the fingerprint, otherwise the whole procedure is useless, because it might be a fake certificate / man in the middle talking to you. Once you have accepted (trusted) the public key (or a certificate containing it), the system will check signatures for you.

So the question "do you want accept this signature" sounds weird to me. In openSUSE repos I have come across fingerprints many times before. But whenever I have searched google in order to verify the fingerprint I have not received any useful hit. I would have expected that valid keys and their fingerprints are listed on some web site. It appears there are three instances of package signing keys ... but there has not been any answer.

OpenSUSE :: 11.1 - Repository Signature Required Message In Updater

Mar 5, 2010

After booting up openSUSE 11.1 i586 this morning, I got a message I had never seen before:

Repository Signature Required
Do you want to accept this repository signature?
repository_name: repo-update
key_url: [URL]
key_useridpenSUSE Project Signing Key <>
key_timestamp:Fri Nov 7 09:10:07 2008
type: gpg
Yes No

So I said Yes. But then it wanted root access, which I declined to provide and canceled the thing, whatever it is. Now, of course, my updater is displaying the yellow triangle with the ! in the center. This is the creepiest thing I have encountered since starting to use openSUSE several years ago. Did this result from some kind of screwup by the folks of openSUSE?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Add Repository Required By Hugin 1-click Installation

Jul 8, 2010

I'm trying to do a 1-click install of hugin (hugin-2010.0.0-13.8.i586.rpm) from Search Results and during installation the repo can't be added due to a missing primary.xml file in this repo: Index of /repositories/graphics/openSUSE_Factory

all the other possibilities on this page to do an installation result with same error.Can someone have a look please? Or what can I do to add this repo? There are some dependencies that could be fixed having this repo.

OpenSUSE :: Why Getting Request To Accept New Repository Signature

Oct 22, 2010

I have NVIDIA installed and I have the repo installed as well, but I have not made any changes to it. So why all of a sudden am I getting the following popup? Is it safe? Should I accept it?

Also, why am I getting it now if it's from 2006?

OpenSUSE :: Force System Updates To Use Packman Repository?

Sep 23, 2010

I was wondering on the updater service slowly over time installing packages overtop packman packages.

For example, some multimedia guides mention to switch all packages to a certain repository like packman. At some point afterwards system updates will overwrite these.

I don't fully understand how updates work, however, is it needed or possible to set a rule for which repos are used as a reference for system updates?

OpenSUSE :: Package Updates - Repository Priorities And Vendor Change

Jul 19, 2010

I read a few threads about updating packages in opensuse 11.3, and about switching to a repository, but I still don't understand a few things. On earlier versions of opensuse I was used to set the repository priorities in an order that was convenient for me, and when I did an update, the vendor changed if needed.
Now, vendor change is not allowed by default, and I don't understand the right way to handle repositories, and updates. I found out that in Software Managment there is an option to allow vendor change, but I'm not sure that's the right way.

Fedora :: Reboot Required Notification For Auto-updates

Feb 12, 2011

I'm currently administering an Ubuntu box remotely. It's set to install security updates automatically, and it notifies me when I log in via ssh whether it has installed an update which requires a reboot. For example, if it installed a kernel update a few days ago, the update manager will touch a "reboot_required" file in /var/run, and when I ssh into the machine today I'll be greeted with a "System restart required" message. Is there a similar functionality for yum or Packagekit?

Apr 9, 2010

OpenSUSE 11.2 installation DVD has many many applications that are installed by default.How can I install just the minimum for a working system. As an excercise I am trying to build a Nas system which I can install into our Windows Active Directory at work and have user access controlled via an Active Directory user group. I have no need therefore for so many of the applications available. I have tried uninstalling some applications and have managed to remove some features that I infact needed to keep.just a minor thing like the Gnome interface (gee!). Is there a list available of core applications required to function etc. that would help me to streamline my build?

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Pasword Required At Boot - Command For Startup?

Mar 22, 2011

I just burned the iso of openSUSe 11.4 onto a dvd, and I make it through all of the installation. At the end it reboots the computer and starts in the kernel/command line or whatever you call it. I think it's kernel. Anyway, it asks for my username and password and then it says like "have fun.." () or something and then just has like my directory or whatever waiting for commands. Is there some command to start up the OS?

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install 12.1 M5 From Hard Disk - Error - No Repository Found

Sep 13, 2011

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.
