What the heck do I do now? 2 times I've re-installed suse 11.2 and this is what I get every time it tries the first update. I just had a perfectly fine working version of 11.2 that was installed using the network install just 3 days ago but I messed up and couldn't access mySql. Today I blew it away thinking I'd just start over and now it doesn't work. I installed it exactly the same as 2 days ago, whats changed? How do I fix this? I can't access the software repository settings in yast, nothing happens when I try to start it.
Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.
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.
YaST2 -> Package -> All Packages -> Update if Newer Available that YaST would install the most current in the highest priority repository. Given the example data below, I thought package A, version 01, which is currently installed from repository abc, would be updated to version 02 from repository xyz.
How do you get YaST to update packages from the highest priority repository?
Code: Sample Data: Repository: xyz package A Ver:02 priority:50 Repository: abc package A installed Ver:01 priority:99
If you attempt to install VLC by simply adding the VideoLAN repository to YAST, the version that's installed won't have audio.Follow the Zypper instructions on the VideoLAN website (bottom of the page)VideoLAN - VLC media player for openSUSE Be sure to specify 11.3 as described, and VLC will install fine.
Looking for source code packages I have configured the "Main repository (Sources)" into the yast list of repositories. However when I select the repository view in th esoftware manager it shows this repository as empty. Other repositories work. I have checked the link to the repository to be valid. I have added it automatically from the "Community repositories".
I'm not sure what when wrong since I have a few DVDs and they all play well in my normal DVD player, I later attempt to mount it in my Ubuntu 8.10 I'm presented with the following message:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
May I know what does this really mean?Is there something in my computer that require a fix?
when I connect my iphone (3GS, 4.3.3) to Fedora 15 it gives me this error: Unable to mount iphone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus). The weird thing: after looking in var/log/messages it appears that it is trying to be used by NetworkManager. And when I lookin NM, i can see iPhone as an ethernet device (cable unplugged).
I encrypted my home partition with the YaST Partitioner tool, but now I can't access it anymore. After I encrypted it I rebooted the machine and thought that it would prompt me a password field to access the partition, but now I can't access it at all. I tried "mount -t ext4 /dev/sda7 /home" which gives me that error after I entered the password: "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda7, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so"
The info I get from "dmesg | tail" is: "EXT4-fs (sda7): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem" Before I encrypted it I converted the /home partition from ext3 to ext4 without any problems and it worked properly. After playing around with it I also discovered that /dev/sda7 got wiped out of /etc/fstab, but I entered it again.
Why does this happen? I am (this time) trying to install Atmel's gnu-avr toolchain. Atmel's web site gives the repository as http:www.atmel.no/avr32/suse/11.0/i586. I put that into YAST2's repository manager, and it comes back with "unable to create repository from URL..."
Why does this happen? It's hardly unique to the Atmel repository: in fact, it seems to be YAST's default behavior on ANYTHING other than the official SUSE repos.
Is there some way to fix this, or bypass it with some other installation tool, so I can get the software I need?
I have written a script which builds a repository into a website document root and it seems to work OK apart from one little problem other servers which use that repository have set it to autorefresh, but they don't, I have to manually execute "zypper refs".how yast2 knows that a repository is out of date?
When I deleted uninstalling and installing some packages in Yast2 I got this output:
Deleting mc Additional rpm output: rpmdb: PANIC: Invalid argument rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db4 error(-30977) from dbcursor->c_put: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: error(-30977) storing record "4.0-1" into Requireversion rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db4 error(-30977) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: error(-30977) setting "3.0.4-1" records from Requireversion index rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db4 error(-30977) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: error(-30977) setting "" records from Requireversion index and on and on for 3 pages for every package.
I'm having trouble with Yast, I noticed today that I can't open the control centre from the desktop (along with install/remove software) when opening from the command line I get. the following output:
** (y2controlcenter-gnome:9050): WARNING **: error accessing /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_command_line [Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)]
Yast2 control centre opens, but none of the options load when selected. I have tried updating everything through Zypper which didn't work. (aka zypper ref/up etc). Then I tried removing yast and installing it again. When I did this (and downloaded the Yast control centre again the above errors, reappeared.
I tried to add another repository to yast (Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2) and when I was done, Yast gave me an error message and now no repositories show up. The error is: "/etc/zypp/repos.d/_mozilla_openSUSE_11.2.repo:Line 2 is missing '=' sign"
How do I fix this? How do I get my repos back? I took a look in that directory and this is what is in it:
do have installed glib and dbus and can find them manually , /usr/include/glib-2.0/glib.h , but while comipling applicaiton it gives following error messages.
/usr/include/libosso.h:32:18: error: glib.h: No such file or directory /usr/include/libosso.h:38:23: error: dbus/dbus.h: No such file or directory /usr/include/libosso.h:39:32: error: dbus/dbus-protocol.h: No such file or directory
I've just upgraded from 11.1 to 11.3. When I go into Yast and try to invoke the Graphics Card and Monitor settings, nothing happens - I get the spinning circles for a few seconds and nothing after that. How can I get at those settings, and why doesn't Yast let me do that?
I have a laptop running OpenSuSE 11.2. I use the Yast menu to set up network settings via "traditional" ifconfig setup (not NetworkManager), because I found NM unusable in prior releases when doing network gymnastics such as router re-flashing, LAN reconfiguration, etc. where I needed control of the IP address, netmask, DHCP, tftp, etc. My laptop works fine with Yast "traditional" ifconfig configuration for eth0 connected to router to Internet. Works fine with Yast ifconfig configuration for USB WiFi as wlan1 to WiFi router to Internet. Also works fine for virtual machines on vmnets NAT-ed to the Internet. Works fine as long as there is only one network connection, that is.
Now, I have a second laptop. I want to network laptop #2 eth0 to laptop #1 eth0 for file transfer and/or Internet access WHILE laptop #1 is is linked to the Internet through wlan1. Unfortunately, I have not figured out how to get Yast/Network Configuration to do that. I have not been able to get Yast/Network Configuration to see both wlan1 and eth0 at the same time--when the Yast utility finishes, I do >ifconfig and >route, and I find that I have lost either eth0 or wlan1. Thus, when I do direct-connect file transfers, I loose the WiFi Internet connection on both machines.
I suspect that it might have something to do with Yast/Network Configuration utility not being able to handle two network interfaces on the host with different IP addresses. how to properly put an OpenSuSE machine on two networks simultaneously? And then how to turn on IP forwarding so that I can use laptop #1's WiFi as an Internet gateway for laptop #2?
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.
trying to install broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop and broadcom-wl-126.96.36.199-7 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.
I just installed 11.4 and was adding a new repository which I entered incorrectly. Yast2 complained and did not add it to the repository list. Now when I run Yast2 Software Management.
I get the following error message... "There was an error in the repository initialization. Error refreshing service Packman 11.4 (vaval.com - Islam Resources and Information. This website is for sale! Parse error: repoindex.xml Opening and ending tag mismatch: meta line 2 and noscript"
Since this line does not show up in my repository list I cannot remove it. How do I edit the data file directly and where is it located?
I just installed 11.2 kde 64 bit and I get this error: DBus error : Unable to get transaction id from packagekit. How do I correct this?also: the other updates have been running for a hour and they're still running. is this normal?
I have just downloaded Wine and I am trying to install it on my computer. as far as I know I should do it with yast, and so I try to do. When I start the installation, I allways get the message :Failed to mount cd:///?devices=/dev/sr0,/dev/sr1 on /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001: No medium found (mount: No medium found)" I don't know why it's asking for a CD if I already have downloaded the file to install it
