OpenSUSE :: Software Installs / System Updates Failed

Mar 3, 2010

Cannot access installation media [URL] (Medium1). Check whether the server is accessible File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium '[URL]'. This has been happening whenever I try to update the system, install new packages from or from Software Management. I installed openSUSE to test while I repaired another system, I'm more familiar with Debian. I've been checking any offered additional repositories when I install software, this is probably my problem. How do I remove the "Death_Knight" profile from my repros and do I need to install another in it's place?

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 Upgrade To KDE 4.3.5 Says Failed - But Installs Just Fine?

Feb 15, 2010

OpenSuse and rpm. Been using Debian for 7 years, so be gentle. I upgrade KDE 4.3.1 to 4.3.5 through the one-click install. After confirming some actions due to dependencies the install runs and in the end it said it failed to install a bunch of packages. These packages installed just fine and everything works as it should.

I was wondering if this happens more often, as it makes me kinda nervous if the installer warns me? Perhaps even more if it warns about things that aren't correct.

Ubuntu Installation :: Sharing Updates Between Two Installs

May 11, 2010

I'm planning to have two installs on the same pc, so I can break / test one and still have a usable system. I've got my partitions setup so I have a separate /home for both installs to share, but how do I share the updates? I'm going to use clonezilla to copy the working (/) partition, but how can I use the updates for both installs. I'm just trying to save downloading twice if possible. Is there a way to copy or use the updates applied in one partition to the other? Does apt save the updates somewhere?

OpenSUSE Install :: Official Updates Failed In KDE

Jan 22, 2010

I've recently ran the Updater Applet to install any pertinent official openSUSE updates, but I got 2-3 (they vanished before I could click on them) popups on the bottom right of my screen saying that an update had failed. Additionally, I found the following message in the Updater's lower panel:

This update fixes an issue caused by a previous
yast2-ncurses update, which would leave some ncurses

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 :: Application Launcher Not Working After System Updates?

Sep 15, 2011

I have searched the net but can't seem to find answer for this issue. I am using Opensuse 11.4 with KDE Version 4.7.1 and kernel on an Acer TravelMate 4200.I updated my system yesterday and since that update the default Application Launcher for KDE is not working, when you click on the launch icon you get the "Kickoff Application launcher" balloon dialog but nothing else happens. A sort of a work around for this issue is that I have found when the application launcher is switched to Classic Menu Style then the classic menu works without any problems. I would however like to use the default launcher and not the classic one as it has so much more functionality and is easier to use and navigate

OpenSUSE Install :: Minor Updates - Fatal Error - System Halted

Mar 1, 2010

Since yesterday my computer behaves really strange. I fear it's a hardware issue. At most I did some minor updates, but no big software or OS change.

When I turn it on it goes immediately to [url]

I guess it reads

Chasis intruded
Fatal Error... System Halted.

So this happens before the boot manager... When I press the reboot button it goes to the boot manager and works seemingly fine - all I noticed that it doesn't remember the time, or better remembered the time form the last usage but doesn't count it forward. While using the time seems to pass in a normal speed.

What could this be? Some chip on the mainboard broken? Some BIOS virus (does something like that exist?) Or maybe just a cable which got lose?

I don't know which other informations could be helpful. I built it myself some years ago and the parts are pretty random (back then I didn't even know about linux compatibility nor used it at all). I have a dual boot with openSUSE 11.2 and windows xp, but the network card is deactived in xp for a year at least already.

Fedora :: Partition Resizing On F12 System For New Installs

Jan 15, 2010

I am new to linux and have installed fedora 12 on my system. The partition sizing which I had done is :

- 17 gb
home- 8 gb
mp -1gb
usr -2gb
Boot -200mb
swap - 4gb (I have 2 gb RAM)
all partitions of ext4 format.

I would like to know that whenever I am going to install any new software or packages then it will be installed in which folder or partition? I have only 170 mb space free in user and have not installed any thing yet. Do I need to resize it. If yes, then how can I do so?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unplug Windows Hard Drive While OpenSUSE Installs?

Jun 14, 2010

I want to dual boot openSUSE 11.2 and Windows 7. I already have Windows 7 installed but I have encountered multiple issues in the past with trying to make dual boots. Usually when I install Linux, GRUB decides it wants to go into world domination mode, and "breaks" my Windows installation. I have reason to believe this is because the distros I use come with legacy GRUB, (v0.97) and for some odd reason it lacks commands such as "update-grub" etc. This means I cannot add Windows 7 to the boot menu without going into extreme complications, which have NEVER, I repeat NEVER succeeded. When I boot the Windows drive directly, I get some error about GRUB not finding the device, and it puts me into a grub rescue command line. Now I am no expert in this field at all, but wouldn't that mean that GRUB wrote itself to the MBR of...oh I don't know, ALL of my hard drives? I really want to install openSUSE 11.2, but from bad experience I am really put off as I know that it ships with legacy GRUB v0.97.I am also running Fedora 13 at the moment, I have quite an experimental dual boot running..been trying to get GRUB 2 for hours now, it is definitely there but no commands work, "upgrade-grub-from-legacy" and "update-grub" return with command not found. I've heard this is just a bug but can anybody confirm that there will definitely be a way for me to "fix" my windows installation after it gets "broken" by GRUB?Second idea, unplug my windows hard drive while openSUSE installs?

OpenSUSE :: All RPM Installs Do Not Have Icons

Sep 10, 2010

I have a little problem going on with my openSUSE 11.3 // GNOME computer. Whenever I install a RPM package, whether it be from a .rpm in my Downloads, etc. or from the zypper repositories, they never have an icon. I continuously have to go to Google and find an icon for my application and change the launcher's properties in my menu.

why this is happening and how I may be able to fix it? It's getting a little tedious having to do this for everything that I install.

OpenSUSE :: Update 2 11.2 Installs With Dial-up?

Mar 16, 2010

I have a Pentium3 & P4 with fresh 11.2 installs. Can I capture the update files from one to be used on the other? These boxes aren't connected together, but each has an unused LAN card if that would help. Each box has a 56K modem that runs about 40K! I haven't started the update process yet, so I don't know if there any new options to the SW Management tools in 11.2.

Ubuntu :: Power Failed During Install Of Updates

Apr 5, 2011

Had the update manager running this morning and it was in the install dpkg phase of the operation when the wonderful power grid I am on went down due to the thunderstorm we were having at the time. I was watching the update at the time the power failed and the install was not completed at the time the computer shut off. When power came back on and I restarted the computer, the log in screen came up only showing 1 and 1/2 of the 4 accounts I have on the computer. When I clicked on the one full account showing, nothing happened. After manually powering off at the tower button, and restarting, I was able to get a log in screen that was usable to log in.

I was even able to launch Firefox, although it is running extremely slow, and my audio properties will not come up and the pop down bar at the top that shows applications, places, etc, does not come down. Just overall, the whole computer does not run properly. Windows take forever to open, if at all, and forever to close, if at all, etc. Restart button does not work, etc. Is there any way to manually run update manager to re-install the parts that obviously are corrupt on the previous attempt at install? Or, is there anyway I can revert back to the status prior to the update attempt?

OpenSUSE :: Remove KDM And KDEBase Extraneous Installs?

Jan 21, 2011

Following some advice here elsewhere about changing a login screen which actually declared that extra KDE stuff did not get installed when installing KDM I found exactly the opposite to be the case when I tried! installed KDM via the yast installer which seemed to be a small 4MB install. However lots and lots of other KDE stuff DID get installed alongside it. 187 MB in fact! 187 MB that's 183 MB I never asked to be installed!

The bad thing is that removing KDM and the KDEBase package does not remove all these components which are now firmly embedded in the system including Oxygen Firefox theme and all sorts of other KDE branding. Could anyone advise how short of reinstalling 11.3 from scratch I can get rid of all this guff the KDM install has introduced into the system by apparently exploiting some bug or other in the installer.... Uninstalling KDM and KDEBase has only uninstalled the 4MB I thought I had chosen. The other 183 MB it glued to my system seems to be invisible to the Yast installer although there are many lines in the history file /var/log/zypp
