OpenSUSE Install :: Adding DVD's To Repository List?
Feb 7, 2010
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
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.
I wanted to add a repository so I took the steps of zypper ar -f ((repo directory)) and got:
Code: zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.4 If only one argument is used, it must be a URI pointing to a .repo file. addrepo (ar) [options] <URI> <alias> addrepo (ar) [options] <file.repo>
I was using Kbibtex under 11.2 on my Lenovo (32-bit) but YaST does not find it now that I have upgraded to 11.3. Perhaps it is as simple a matter as adding another repository. Can anyone clarify for me?
I have a shared folder that has it's access restricted to certain users on a file server at work. Currently when I try to add a user I follow this process: Right click the Folder, go to Properties Click the "Access Control List" tab Select a user from the "Participants List" Click Add
For most users this process works fine but with one of them I get the following error: "Could not add ACL entry: Invalid Argument" I also tried a script that a former employee created which seems to employ this command: setfacl -m u:<USER>:rw- <PATH> Running the command with the correct user and path returns a similar "Invalid Argument" error. We're using OpenSuse 10.2.
I understand there is a file that stores the repositories' information, but I can't find it!Is there a way I can create a list of what applications have been installed?The idea is that if I am running a backup, finding a way to save the repository list and applications installed so if I am upgrading, or fixing a borked system by re-installing Fedora, I could copy the repo list back, and run the applications list like ode:yum install <cat apps.txt?> and get all of the applications I've installed via Yum without having to remember them all?Is there anything else, outside of /home, I should look at backing up? SELinux settings?
I have a Fedora 12 and OpenSuse DVD with me. It consists of lots of packages and hence to install these packages I don't have to download them. What I want to do is copy the package folder on my local machine and then add them as repository in Synaptic Packet Manager.
I would like to install a program called VariCAD. I downloaded the install file (full file name: varicad2010-en_2.06_amd64.deb) but was wondering if one couldn't somehow do this via the repository, kind of like I did for my nvidia drivers? Is it possible?
I was trying to install Gnome 3 in ubuntu 11.04 & some other applications.While adding repositories throgh terminal encountered this error."Error reading https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~gnome...rchive/gnome3: <urlopen error [Errno -2] Name or service not known>"
Can I ask if it is possible to add the newest version of rrdtool to CentOS repositories? Now I'm using 1.3.8 but there is already 1.4.5. We have some policy so I'm not able to install it not via repo way...
Some while ago I decided to add Firefox repository directly through terminal. (Idea born when I saw in one old page (yes, never look for info in old pages ) "tutorial" how to do it.) The whole idea was simple: just add one line in terminal.The line was like this:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stableBut since that, when I try to update through update manager I get errors:Quote:

Couple of days I go I setup VLC using Kubuntu's graphic software manager, and installed the 3 plug-ins, one of which was related to pulse. After doing this sound stopped working in flash videos. I had read, not sure where, that Kubuntu didn't use pulse (which slipped my mind when setting up VLC).
So I make the mistake of removing everything which had pulse in it's name (again, via the graphic software manager). A message popped-up saying that some packages needed to be removed/edited (a LONG list, a big clue that I was doing something stupid I guess). I let it run it's course and after that it won't boot properly.
If I boot it normally it hangs at the Kubuntu screen with the five dots filling endlessly. If I press F1 it's stuck at "checking battery status."
Recovery mode boots, but the recovery option does nothing.
So I was wondering if I could boot into recovery mode and go into the terminal and add a live USB as a repository for apt, and try to salvage the install?
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 tried to install emergent using following guide:[URL](Ubuntu) However, I did not succeed, it seems that it could not install emergent properly. My far worse problem now is that it messed up my software center and update manager. I get following error message when starting the software-center:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/apt/aptcache.py", line 105, in open self._cache = apt.Cache(GtkMainIterationProgress()) File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/apt/cache.py", line 88, in __init__
Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Malformed line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)'
I am newbie to linux so please understand. My boot loader was overwritten by windows 7. so I inserted the boot cd and repaired the boot using YAST. now I am able to login to suse but when I select windows it says bootmgr missing. I read thru some of the board and added the following lines to menu.1st:
###Windows 7 title Windows 7 rootnoverify (hd0,1) chainloader +1 linux-d8a4:~ # fdisk -l
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 just done a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.2 over 11.1 (and I love it). Grub has the options of booting into Opensuse and windows but has missed Mint.It normally wouldn't bother me, but I use Mint for a few things I can't get working in Suse. I was just wanting to manually add Mint to the Grub menue.I would like it to be added to the Suse grub as I prefer the look of it to the Mint grub.
I want to upgrade to 11.2 from 10.3. I was looking at disk usage and noticed the last time I set up my system, I allocated too much space to the / partition. It's only 50% used, while /home is 83% used. Rather than resizing and messing up /home, I thought about just adding a new partition created from the / partition. Call it say /data or something and put music, pics, pdf files and such there. But, would it be automatically mounted and what about permissions?
