OpenSUSE :: Zypper Won't Download Any Packages / Resolve This?

Jul 8, 2011

Zypper seems unable to reach the openSUSE servers. I am currently on a network that may or may not block certain traffic, so I don't know if their firewall is in the way. I am able to browse the web without any problems. Sometimes Zypper downloads proceed eventually, but the download is doggone slow. I did this code...

Apparently Zypper has trouble downloading this URI, but if I open it in Chrome it loads perfectly without any problems. How can I find the root of this problem?

OpenSUSE :: Restrict Zypper To Install Only Updates And No New Packages?

Feb 23, 2011

I'm a long time Linux user but new to Suse. I got a couple of questions I was hoping someone might shed some light to. I'm running OpenSuse 11.3. -After running 'zypper update' I see it's listing a couple of new packages it wants to install (flash-player among them). I thought update would mean update existing packages, not install random new packages. Is there a way to restrict zypper to install only updates and no new packages?

-I'm trying to find a repository that has the complete courier mail server (smtp, webmail and all the rest, not just the imap server) but I'm having no luck. Anyone know where I could get it? I know I can build it myself. -Is there a way to automatically download all available updates so that they can later be installed interactively?

Fedora :: Terminal Command For Installing Packages Zypper / OpenSuSE?

Jun 24, 2011

I'm considering making a switch from Ubuntu/Linux Mint to Fedora 15 because I just adore, love, cannot be without Gnome Shell any longer. SELinux - I actually am finding I hate this program as it blocks certain plugins (like Java), some programs I run it blocks functionality, etc. What's the best way to disable it or make it more like Ubuntu where it's pretty much permissive of everything. Common Apps I use - I haven't checked the repos, but at the least I use the following (some I know work, but I can't remember the specific ones I want to know if I need to compile or if it's in the repos)

a - Snes9x
b - PCSX Reloaded
c - KeepNote
d - libdvdcss2 and libdvdread4
e - MP4, MP3, AVI, MPEG, OGG, OGV codecs (I think I've converted any others like WMA and WMV... wait I have a few WMA files, crap)
f - Flash 64-bit - this one I have issues with SELinux wise, (reason for first question)
g - VirtualBox - it runs so much faster under Fedora so I know this one works
h - Sun Java

RPMs - Fedora uses RPMs right? Is there like an DEB Alien to convert DEBs to RPMs? Apache2 - Now maybe I found this as httpd or lightppd or something, but why isn't it listed as Apache2 in the repos? I'm more or less guessing that Fedora is not a "rolling" release, is there a variant or version that is or a repo I can enable? A software center, other than Synaptic; I'm pampered when it comes to Ubuntu Software Center and that, is there anything like that in Fedora that isn't Synaptic? What's the terminal command for installing packages, is it zypper or is that OpenSuSE?

OpenSUSE :: Get Zypper To Show The Full Description Of Packages Rather Than A Truncated Summary?

Jan 10, 2011

How can I get Zypper to show the full description of packages rather than a truncated summary? When I use zypper to list installed packages or search for packages from the command line I would like to see the full detailed description of the packages that are returned in the results. Currently zypper only shows me a truncated summary description.

OpenSUSE :: How To Update The Via Zypper

Dec 6, 2010

updating via Zypper. Recently I decided to do all the system updates via Zypper, because I trust Zypper more than the other update mechanisms. since 2 days I always get the following message in the terminal, when I do


zypper up


The following package updates will NOT be installed:

gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base kcm_gtk kdebase4-openSUSE
kdebase4-runtime-branding-openSUSE kdebase4-workspace-branding-openSUSE
kdelibs4-branding-openSUSE kdm-branding-openSUSE kio_sysinfo


the packages mentioned in there are always the same, but I am more concerned about this message in general. In Ubuntu (which I used before) and in Debian, such a message meant, that you have to install some additional packages to resolve dependencies.


apt-get dist-upgrade

with this command the system installed the required additional packages and afterwards the packages which were listed as "will not be installed" so does this message in Zypper mean the same? Can I also do something like a "dist-upgrade" in OpenSuse, without bringing the whole system to (for example) 11.4, but to get all the updates including some new dependencies?

OpenSUSE :: Can't Update Via YAST Or Zypper

Jun 10, 2010

Turned on my PC as soon as I got home & found that Factory repo had a whole bunch of updates, so I selected to 'switch system packages' & clicked accept.

Whatever I tried to download & install displays an error message

Have even deleted the factory repo & re-added, to ensure it wasn't a change of url causing problems.

I'm running 11.2 64bit KDE 4.4.3

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Hangs / Freezes After Zypper Update?

Sep 8, 2010

zypper refresh
zypper update -d
zypper update


After that both systems hang with a black screen, running high CPU as I could hear the CPU fans running at max speed. Waited on both systems, but had to hard reset both.

#1 (using ext3, but mounted as ext2) tried to reboot, but had a LOT of file system issues that had to be resolved (fsck). After that the Video driver had to be reinstalled. Finally the system did reboot, but all icons on all GNOME desktops (~/Desktop) are white and have the ".desktop" extension in their name.

#2 (using ext4) came backup fine, but also required the video driver to be reinstalled. After that the system worked fine.

Still wondering how to resolve the GNOME Desktop Icon issue with #1. Tried to create a new user, but that had the same effect for the icons (launchers) in ~/Desktop. Icons for "Home", "Trash" and connected networks do display the normal names and have a normal image.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Zypper Corrupted After Aborting Update

May 8, 2010

I was updating all the installed packages on my system yesterday via YAST. The package manager seemed to hang when downloading a small update for YAST itself (related to ncurses, I think) so I hit the abort button. The package manager quit but now it doesn't work. Trying to start the software management module (Qt version) give me the following error:
UI Syntax Error
Couldn't load plug-in qt-pkg
Check the log file!

So I then tried the console version of YAST. The software management module doesn't work here either. It give me the following error:
UI Syntax Error
Couldn't load plug-in ncurses_pkg
Check the log file!

I Googled a bit and came to the conclusion that for the second error I should try the following command:
zypper install yast2-ncurses-pkg
But this just gives me another error:
zypper: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So now it appears that both YAST and zypper are corrupt!

OpenSUSE Install :: Update From 11.2 To 11.4 - Unable To Get Correct Display Using Zypper Tool?

Jul 10, 2011

I used the zypper dup tool to upgrade my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop and my display is now broken into columns and partially obscured. I can barely see anything on it. When I ran zypper it stopped about half way and locked up.I then ran it again to completion. At boot, GRUB gives me my startup options as before and is clearly readable with good resolution. When I select openSuse to start it, the screen goes blank for a few seconds and then comes back with the screen problems.

The problem continues all the way into KDE. I have approximately four columns displayed but I can barely see anything. Most of the lower half of what should be displayed is obscured so I cannot load any applications. If I right click, I can make out the dialog box and select the run command. From there I reran the zypper command using the 'zypper up rpm' option and it says "nothing to do" and the "highest update version is already installed."

The display problem also exists if I use the failsafe boot option. I remember having to download nVidia driver last year to get a better resolution, but 11.2 (64 bit) worked great until the repositories stopped working and I no longer was able to load software. Now I can't use the computer to download and burn a DVD version of 11.4. Again, I do seem to be able to use the terminal, so I could presumably fix something with it if I had the right commands and I do seem to have access to the repositories.

OpenSUSE :: Run "zypper Up" Get Recurring Updates For Same Packages?

Mar 19, 2010

I noticed that when i run "zypper up" i get recurring updates for the same packages. these are mainly KDE packages, but also virtualbox and vlc. I understand that at least with KDE 4.4 - the version i now have, it is under constant development, but it looks to me like i keep getting the same updates all the time. i'm talking about several times a week. running zypper lr yields this:


my guess is that i might have repositories that contain the same packages, and i'm upgrading downgrading all the time.

General :: Packages Seemingly Install Fine With Zypper But Can't Be Run And Aren't In Menus

Oct 3, 2010

I'm not sure how to describe this because no-one else on the internet seems to have had anything even vaguely resembling this problem. I'm trying to install wxPython for openSUSE 11.3 (which seems to be called python-wxGTK which is fine). I don't think it's a problem with that particular package because I seem to remember something going wrong ages ago, the last time I installed something, but it didn't affect that particular install so I paid no notice. I'm sorry, that was a really vague statement and won't help anyone in the slightest. Anyway, the reason I think that event was relevant is that ever since then my Gnome menus have been out of sync - the new package I installed didn't appear on the menu.

Anyway, onto actual useful stuff. Just as a test case (to see that nothing was wrong with wxPython) I installed another small application with zypper (just the standard sudo zypper install moneyplex). zypper didn't complain at all and as far as I know it went perfectly.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE 4.6.0 - Older Packages Available In Update List

I was following this thread: Upgrade kde4.6>
But just before I clicked accept after saying switch system packages to kde4 repo (the one in that thread) I noticed loads of the packages were older than those installed. In the list it has installed (available) and lots of them were all highlighted in red, and the installed version numbers were higher than the available, yet I'm running kde 4.6.0.

OpenSUSE :: Updater Applet Prompt To Update Packages From Different Repos?

Jan 8, 2011

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 ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Scriplet Failed, Signal 11 When Trying To Update Packages In Yast?

Sep 2, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 11.1 (this may be the thing that causes me to finally update ) with KDE 4.4 (specifically, 4.4.4 release 5). Recently (maybe the past month or so... give or take a week or two or so... first time I really remember it happening is when I realized they changed the repository for KDE 4.4 from factory to stable and switched them) >90% of the things I try to install via YAST fails with the following error... this example is me trying to upgrade avidemux from the Packman repository.

Error: RPM failed: warning: /var/cache/zypp/packages/Packman_Repository/x86_64/ Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9a795806 error: %post( scriptlet failed, signal 11
Oddly enough, the main avidemux package threw the error, but the avidemux-qt4 package didn't.

OpenSUSE :: Critical Zypper Bug ?

Sep 7, 2010

I don't know why but sometimes zypper (v1.4.5) removes some of the installed packages before upgrading them.

Actually it removes it even before downloading a newer version. I just wonder what a stupid f**k implemented this behavior. I wish something awful happens to him.

An hour ago I tried to update few packages, among those were sysconfig, firefox and yast. Guess what? Zypper removed those before downloading newer versions. Due to a temporary network connection loss zypper could not download packages and quit leaving me without firefox, without yast and, what's even worse, without sysconfig package which contains essential system scripts such as ifup, ifdown etc (so my network went down completely without a possibility to restore). It's a big luck there was no new package of rpm (or it would be removed by zypper too) so I could just download those packages with my second PC and reinstall them from a memory stick.

Now I'm interested where should I file this bug, because without a doubt it's a critical one.

OpenSUSE :: KDE Fails After Zypper Up

Sep 14, 2010

Yesterday I performed a zypper up on my system. Stock KDE4 that comes with 11.3. After I restarted the computer, it would get about 4/5 the way through the progress bar that displays when first starting then lock up hard. Starting in safe mode works. With a little experimenting I found that typing x11failsafe to the boot up options line let me start without a problem also.

The sleazy workaround would be to add that parameter to the grub menu, but I'd rather have a real fix. Has anyone else seen this issue? Is there a fix for it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Run Zypper Dup In X Or Not?

Dec 6, 2009

I'm upgrading from 11.2 RC1 to the final release.

I searched here, but didn't find much in the way of tutorials. This page was the best I found: Upgrade openSUSE

That page indicates that I only need to run

zypper dup

Very simple, but is it complete?

Thinking it is not that simple, I put together my own list of steps and I'd like some feedback on whether all this is necessary. In particular, is it necessary to run zypper dup outside X? Are my steps too complex?

sudo -s
zypper lr --export backups/repos/foo.repo
zypper ref
zypper in zypper libzypp (nothing to do)


I solved that by going into yast and disabling the CD-based repository. How do you do this in zypper when the error message doesn't tell you the name of the offending repository? That error could be very confusing to someone who didn't realize that a CD-based repository would be responsible for this.

OpenSUSE :: Zypper R - Best Version Of Package

Jul 5, 2010

I installed R using zypper some time back, but then I read that I should have used a specific repository called Rpatched. So (note order) I added the repository, then remove R (called R-base) and then proceeded to install the package. Clearly in my repository list there is more than one source of R. Should I have removed the package first and then add the new repository? How in fact does zypper deal with different repositories when they all have the same package? I expect it might choose the most recent version. But what happens when the packages are patched? How does it determine the best version of the package to use?
