OpenSUSE :: Yast2 - Software Mgmt Parsing Error On Start
Mar 31, 2010
I haven't been able to locate this cause. The problem developed as follows:
1. Used a downloaded .ymp file to add a community package, chose NOT to add the repo permanently from the Customize button... installation of package failed.
2. Added the repo manually in Yast Software Repositories and it went thru the process without error, BUT the repo never appeared in the list. (this is where i think the problem lies)
3. Tried to add the package using .ymp package without blocking the new repo addition... package installed successfully. Then deleted the repo using Yast Software Repositories gui.
Now starting Yast Software Management the process starts and downloads the repo.xml files from each enabled repo, then displays a error msg stating "Parsing Error". Dismiss and it loads the normal interface and seems to work properly from then on.
I am using opensuse 11.3. I am encountering a problem while trying to log in. The problem message was "could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation" I tried to solve this problem by following the instructions given in OpenSuSE 11.0 Could not start kdeinit4... i.e., I opened yast2 and then I had to select "software management" from there in order to update all the packages in kde4. But I got another error when I clicked it.
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base:/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.6: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/YaST2/plugin/libpy2wfm.so.2)
The error list continues. I cannot type whole error list ending with similar wordings as above as am using different computer. I tried to solve this one too by following the instructions in Relocation Error but I could not understand its line "...fixed the problem by taking /usr/local/lib out of ld.so.conf, and then running ldconfig" as am new to linux.
Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are : From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm After installed suse linux. error messages for all options in yast2.
The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.
So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?
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 am unable to examine Apache httpd error log from YaST2 because the lines are too long; the browser just truncates them and thus it does not show any description. The only option is to save it. However, when I chose that option, YaST2 encourages me to save it in /tmp, and as soon as I do that, the log becomes accessible to every user!
I've been running a SuseStudio-built VM for a few weeks with no issues. I built a new one recently, and now I can't configure a new vhost in Apache using the http-server module. It gives me this error. Screen shot 2010-11-06 at 11.42.24 AM.png. Why YaST suddenly decided that my hostnames aren't valid?
I get this error when I try to start up firefox: Code: XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: (null) Line Number 30, Column 7: <menuitem id="context-copy" ------^ It's a GTK window with black text with yellow background. I've tried removing the .mozilla folder uninstalling firefox completely and deleting /usr/lib64/mozilla and /usr/lib/mozilla folders. Same error. So I tried running firefox under root, and it displays the same error plus:
Code: 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 [URL] 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.) So after long hours of frustration I created a new "test" user and firefox ran fine. It still doesn't work on my old user account and root. My system is "Linux localhost.localdomain 126.96.36.199-102.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Dec 4 00:18:53 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"
I am new to Ubuntu linux and recently installed it on my computer. I did a system scan and this is what it said, ML Parsing Error: not well-formed Location: file:///media/Cruzer/submission.xml Line Number 4807, Column 53: Checking for hardware/setup problems... [#[33mWARN] What exactly does this mean and what is a possible solution
I'm trying to install PPTP following this guide http://www.dotcomunderground.com/blogs/2010/04/10/poptop-pptp-centos5-installation-setup/but when I enter the command yum --enablerepo=poptop-stable install pptpd
I have to wonder how much testing Opensuse has done with yast-dns-server package. After adding zones to the dns server - the system loses the ability to perform name resolutions. I can copy a named.conf file from a system that does work, except everytime the system is restart the named.conf file is rewritten trashing the updates done and again rendering the system to perform name resolutions.
Anyone have suggestions on how to get yast-dns-server from interferring with the configuration file? I tried just uninstalling the package, but then bind doesn't even start up on boot up.
I'm having some issues upgrading my F9 to F12 using 'preupgrade' so I'm looking for anybody who has ever been able to complete a preupgrade from F9 x86_64 to F12. The error message I receive is TypeError: Parsing primary.xml error: attributes construct error. To my knowledge this has been reported as a bug in F10 which was resolved by a yum update to version 3.2.24.
For F9 the latest yum version is 3.2.21 which has this Parsing error bug that prevents the preupgarde to continue. Interesting enough that the preupgarde lets me select Fedora 12 and progresses with all the preupgrade steps properly until the parsing error occur. How to fix this Parsing error on a F9 x86_64 system.
As trying to update my system the other day I was greeted with a message I did not want.
Code: tpsv@titantest:~$ sudo apt-get install update Reading package lists... Error! E: Problem parsing dependency Replaces E: Error occurred while processing language-pack-kde-nds (NewVersion1) E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I tried to upgrade ubuntu , downloaded everything that was needed but I am not able to install anything. It gives an error

i traying to install php memcache module and alot of other things but evrytime i tray to use yum i got this error $Loading "fastestmirror" plugin Options Error: Error parsing '1enabled=1': invalid boolean value i have centos 5 server 64bit is there anyone now what this error and how to fix it
I searched a bit on the 'snet-sensor-mgmt' but I couldn't make sense of what it is for. Why is it running? and does it have to be on port 10000? I am thinking of installing webmin, but that port is taken. Fedora 14.
the following message appears after I enter the root password.
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData11detach_growEPii
It doesn't launch from the root console, either. But, the text-based YaST works fine. I assume that something went wrong after my last system update. which package I need to downgrade, to get things working, again?
I'm using openSUSE 11.4 64bit (KDE). I enabled Index of /source/distribution/11.4/repo/oss repository through YaST2 but it is empty and I can't see any source rpm file in YaST2. I even delete that repository and add it again but still empty. I open the link in firefox and it's not empty or invalid link.
Is there a way to know the size of a package in YaST2?I only have 50MB left in my root partition / (Btw, my /home is in a separate partition.) and I'm looking for a way to selectively delete package depending on it's size. Also, when we "remove" a package in YaST2, is it "completely" removed? or is there some residual rpm left? (of course /home/configs would be kept as it is an expected behavior).
11.4-KDE4.6.5 32bit install,,,perhaps it is the normal way now, but it was new to me: Opened Yast2 Partitioner module, and attempted to set up an extended partition on space unallocated of sdb. Went thru the steps to create and hit finish, immediately i get a kdesu authorization dialog and yast2 Partitioner disappears/crashes. entry in var/log/messages:
Aug 22 09:08:25 blkdragon polkitd(authority=local): Operator of unix-session:/org/freedesktopConsoleKit/Session3 FAILED to authenticate to gain authorization for action org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount-system-internal for system-bus-name::1.38 [kdeinit4: kded4 [kdeinit]] (owned by unix-user:blkdragon) so, does this mean I have to set up udisks/polkit rules for using the Partitioner? Yast2 was not considered in the default polkit rules for the install?
When I start yast2 it seems to hang at around 50% (the lower progress bar) while refreshing the repositories. It can sit there for a minute before moving on. Once yast2 has started and I add / remove repos the refresh happens very quickly. It's only when starting that it gets stuck.
This is something that really only started after I upgraded to 11.2. In 11.1 the progress bar would move cross quickly and you could see the various repos flashing up above the progress bar. I didn't bother with it too much but it's starting to annoy me now. It also sometimes just hangs there permanently and I have to abort it.
I've tried unconditionally updating the yast stuff but it hasn't helped. My network connection is fine and I have now problems or speed issues with browsing the repo urls from a browser.
I've been trying for awhile to install the restricted formats, but when in the download & and install process, YaST2 pops up saying that such and such RPM has failed. I hit ignore, and it happens again and again to all the other packages, bar the odd few that work.
I'm using the yast2 gui interface to configure apache. I think its called yast2_http_server. I added one website with *:80 set as the virtualhost ID. When I go to add a second website with the same thing, it errors out with: The IP address is already configured on another virtual host: *:80/mydomain.com. I have another opensuse box with many websites in apache configured this way.
if I open Yast2 via SSH I see the garbage (code page related issue; similar to this). If I set some other than UTF-8 in PuTTY (KOI8-U, iso-8859 etc) Yast looks good, but then the same problem appears with Midnight Commander. How can I have Yast to use 'right' UTF-8 instead of any legacy code pages? Or how better deal with the situation?
I'm trying to get yast2 to default to the QT interface. I have used these instructions but each time I run yast from the KDE launcher it still uses the GTK interface. I have also checked that the Yast2-qt package is installed. And have rebooted after setting it up, but it has still not worked.
I know it can work as if I run in konsole /sbin/yast2 it uses the correct interface?
