i am a new opensuse user from vietnam. I installed opensuse 11.3 last week, and i have a serious problem with repo. I can't enter it . It's mean i can't update (by update applet), install codec, new software, .
My kupdate-applet tells me it has a recommended update: KDE 4.3.5 from the official opensuse update repo. Problem is I already have a more recent version of KDE 4.3.5 installed from the official opensuse KDE repo. In yast I pressed the "switch system packages" button for the KDE repo. How can I make the update applet ignore this "recommended" update? Note that the updateApplet itself is installed from the opensuse update repo. If I don't do this, then the older update applet from the KDE repo always has a recommended update for... Kupdate-applet.
I want to play M4A, ive downloaded gstreamer, and installed, it said i needed gstreamer multiverse, so i began to get that but then it said
Processing triggers for man-db ...Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/liblame0_3.96.1-1_i386.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) I cant use -f install or -f upgrade or -f update or anything, this is what i get when i use -f install
How can I make the security applet stop showing an update for firefox 3.5.9? I have a more recent version installed from mozilla repo: firefox 3.6. The mozilla repo already has a higher priority (95 instead of 99), so I don't know what to do.
when I launch Yast2 - Online Update, I get an error during the repository refresh that it could refresh the repository.Since it's easier to copy-paste - here is the output from 'zypper ref' with the same error:
Code: Retrieving repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.3 11.3-1.82' metadata [|] Failed to download ./repodata/cefcc9d56264aa169f70a53c560ffc39cb6af575-deltainfo.xml.gz

I just reinstalled my OpenSuse 11.3 with the GNOME desktop. As soon as I was done installing and I was on a fresh desktop, I installed the Yast updates that were available, rebooted, and now I can't login to any of my User accounts. Whenever I try to login, it tells me that it is "Unable to Open Session".o any of you know how I can fix this without having to reinstall all over again
how to update my system online (for example my firefox 3.0 to 3.5) but i can't figure out how this possibly works. I tried the "online update" using Yast2 but apparently (according to Yast) there is nothing at all to be patched on my system. I tried to click on the Firefox-3.5.5 rpm in the repository web-interface and open it using "install software" but the process aborts because of unresolved dependencies. Is there an easy way to update software without having to download/install every dependency manually?
I have just visited this page here, Updating openSUSE - openSUSE I have been trying to update my OpenSuSE system for a week now and I have absolutely no idea what causes this problem. The update would start but would stop right in the middle and refuse to install some pulseaudio(...) package... It would indicate that network is down while I am sure it is up.
I am behind a proxy and I have again and again made sure that the proxy settings are correct and alright. Since it downloads some of the packages in the start I believe my connection and settings are OK. Maybe the SuSE server is down, but not for a whole week, I don't think so. I would also like to mention that I have only tried updating through YaST GUI and I am, as of yet, unaware of any console or command-line methods of updating.
I really would like to update my system because I happen to be paranoid in matters of computer security. (Just kidding) But since I cannot install any updates it should mean I might have problem installing new software. So my digital life is literally crippled because of this problem.
I had my motherboard fail and had to do a replacement. The motherboard I got has a feature (I don't think I can shut off) that lets you select what drive you want to boot off of. I have XP installed on the first drive and openSUSE 11.1 on the second drive. I am running openSUSE 11.2 with KDE 3.5 and I simply dropped my drives onto this new motherboard. I can boot up (Linux) just fine but am having other issues with my mouse. I am thinking of Updating to openSUSE 11.2 and the current KDE version.
Should I just update to 11.2 or do a new install. I have LOTS of data in my home directory I really don't want to lose and have a partition for data as well that is pretty full. I don't want to lose this stuff. What should I do about Grub with this BIOS that lets you pick which drive to boot off of? Put Grub in the MBR of the drive with openSUSE on it and nuke the MBR of the XP drive?
I am looking to update from 11.1 to 11.3. My question is would it be better to update my current setup, or do a fresh install of 11.3? I was never able to get 11.2 to install no matter what I tried so I gave up on it and went back to my tried and true 11.1. What is the best way for me to get 11.3 on my computer?
On a fresh install (tried two new installs now) I'm getting an error when I try to go out to the update repositories after the install. I'm getting a "failed to download /suse/setup/descr/packages.DU.gz from [URL] It seems to get about 48% and just hangs there. This happens both if I try downloading updates during the install or if I try doing an on-line update after the system is up.
I get the following error when YAST tries to install the latest updates----Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: db3 error(-30987) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Requireversion index----could it be from removing KWALLET? Now I cannot re-install it due to this error.
Is it just me or your update applet also stopped working recently? I'm running Factory KDE-4.4.2 and openSUSE-11.2. It's always "Checking for updates..." without finding any, even though I can always see new ones through Yast - Online Update. And sometimes it asks me to accept some key, when I click OK it asks me for a root password but after I type in half of the password it simply disappears and starts "Checking for updates..." again without end.
And YAST doesn't show any newer packages anymore but rather has "Switch system packages" on the top. If I click on that, then it starts showing newer packages and wants to update them all. But what if I want to use Packman's packages for multimedia and Factory KDE for KDE? If I select "Switch system packages" for KDE then it will update, for example, Kaffeine to KDE's but I want to keep it Packman's. If I search for Kaffeine, it shows no newer packages, but if I go to Versions, there's clearly a newer version there!
Whenever I check for updates, or download/install them, the openSUSE updater applet never shows the loading bar. The border showing the loading bars position is there but the loading bar never appears. It always sits at 0% but still successfully complete updating.
Using XFCE with OpenSUSE 11.3. XFCE's Update Applet runs without superuser privileges. It finds updates without problems, but when I try to install them, it reports that it failed to authenticate or something like that. I have to start YaST Online Update module in order to install the updates. Is it possible to enable XFCE Update Applet to prompt for superuser authentication or to directly use YaST Online Update as panel applet, like in KDE?
In my update tray applet I often get a notification saying an update for my system is available and when I click for details the only patch listed is dummy Patch. Anyone know what or why this is? It's happening on my 11.1 and 11.2 machines.
I had to reinstall OpenSUSE after I reorganized my hard Drive partitions... I was trying to update the system when I encountered an ERROR: Problem connecting to a software origin There was a (possibly temporary) problem connecting to a software origins. DETAILS File"/repodata/repomd xml' not found on medium [URL] My repositories too seem all right.
I have a minor problem with my "Update Applet 2.28.0" in Gnome. It occurs when I want to make the applet do one or more suggested update(s). It always asks me for the password of superuser/root: "Authenticate : Authentication is required to update packages. [...]". I think under my installation before (11.1 maybe updated from an older version) I could tell the automatic/semi automatic updater to remember the su password (in YaST or in the authentication dialog?).
In the help manual on my computer (and in the internet) there is the possibility to make the updater remember the password via policy kit: ("Access to all privileged operations is controlled via PolicyKit." See: GNOME Documentation Library : gnome-packagekit Manual : Introduction) I could not find any policy kid or any other possibility to give to the automatic updater (or its user) that privilege permanently (=to remember authorization). I think on a system with more (real) users this could be a real problem (not just an inconvenience).
I'm using openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.5.4. The updater applet works fine for me, however I think it only checks for updates from the update repo. I tried to modify this behaviour by right clicking the icon and checking "show available updates, when the backend provides it(for experts)" (translation from polish so it may not be 100% accurate) but the behaviour is the same, it only prompts me when there are updates available in the update repo but I would like it also to prompt me when there are updates available in the packman and KDE stable repo. Is it possible to force the updater applet to do this ?
I have a few PCs that are used by average joe's and whenever updates are available the update applet apears indicating there are updates. I usually update all these machines at the same time using zypper so in order to remove additional confusion how can I disable this? I've read in the forum how to stop it from starting up by going to Control Center | Startup Applications and unchecking Packagekit Update Applet. Is there a way to do this using the command line? I'm sure there is, after all this is Linux, I just need to know how. Reason being is I'll be ssh'ing into these machines to disable the update applet and don't want to touch all the machines and click my way to stop it at startup. Figure there has to be an easier way
i have huawei usb stick modem, i'm connecting to internet with wvdial command, i have configured the file "wvdial.conf" to be able to connect, everything works fine i guess but the update applet still show me the message
Code: Unable to check whether updates are available
connect to the internet and connection manager too .. it tell me i'm not connected, i think i must configure my connection in an other way .. but i don't know how ..
i installed Ubuntu rel 9.10 download as a first time user. all was fine until the update manager bugged me enough to update. i allowed it to download and install the updates for rel 10.04. after the update i started having intermittent GRUB errors at boot. i worked on this problem and without warning Ubuntu returned to rel 9.10. the Linux kernel is still at level 2.6.31-21. rather than do another update manager update i am considering a download of rel 10.04 and install from that. i would then have a backup for rel 10.04. my concerns are my user data i do not have a user partition. also how would the install partition my hard drive. i allowed the install to partition my 9.10 system. my current FDISK output not sure why devices show sda i thought they woud be hda hard drive??
In OpenSuSE 11.2 YaST -> Online Update Configuration I can configure how often the system should check for updates (i.e. daily, weekly). Does this operate independently from the Online Update Applet(kupdateapplet)? The reason I ask is that the Applet doesn't always seem to work correctly. However, if the system will check for online updates automatically regardless of the Applet, perhaps this isn't an issue. If I can avoid messing with the Applet, that would be great.
Two days ago my system (11.3) was running fine with KDE 4.5.1. I received an update notification from the applet and installed the change (it was only one package, but I dont remember its name...it wasnt a kernel though). When I tried to boot yesterday, I can only login to the console.
I dont have any special repositories installed next to KDE 4.5 and Packman.
I did had trouble with duplicate kernels last week when I installed the latest ati-driver. I had default and desktop kernels installed. After removing default everything worked fine...until the update mentioned above.
I have suse 11.0 installed and now that 11.1 is out i would like to update. I have searched for this already and have found three ways of doing it:
zypper dup zypper up
in YAST view all packages and right click and click update all if update available. I have tried all these methods but i still seem to be running Suse 11.0 as it says in sysinfo:/ . How do i successfully update from 11.0 to 11.1?
