OpenSUSE :: Updater Wants To Update Non-installed Package?

Feb 27, 2010

I'm on OpenSuSE 11.1, and since I needed some features of Firefox 3.5.x I manually updated via 1-Click intall to 3.5.8. Now the Updater-Applet signals a security repo update for FF 3.0.18 which is no longer installed since replaced by the 3.5.8, and I see no way to get rid of the red warning sign; this is very bad since now I get no longer informed about other new updates to really installed packages ....

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Prevent Package Update

Feb 26, 2011

I've recently downgraded kaffeine to 0.8.8 to get back the EPG which was working under hardy. Is there a simple way to prevent a package from updating when I update the rest of the system? I realise that this is not normally a good idea to keep packages back like this, but the upgrade to kaffeine caused the loss of a useful tool.

OpenSUSE :: Zypper And Package Management (Yast GUI)

Jul 16, 2010

I might switch to OpenSUSE from Debian, but I have my doubts still about package management with OpenSUSE. I'm glad to see that zypper now has the --clean-deps option. Is there a YAST GUI for this as well? I don't like the command line very much. Additionally, is there any way to remove a package with all its config files? In Debian with the Synaptic front end, you can right click on package and click "remove" and it will just uninstall the package but leave its configuration files intact.

But if you select "Completely Remove" it will remove all the configuration files so that if you later install the package again it will use the default settings once again. Is there any way to do this with OpenSUSE? Again, I'd prefer a GUI. Does 11.3 offer Delta RPM updates, and are there many repos that offer delta RPMs? Does Zypper cache downloaded packages by default? And using the YAST package management GUI are packages caches by default? If so, where? Does the YAST GUI try to refresh the package cache all the time, or can I do it manually?

Ubuntu :: Bad Package (xulrunner Prevent General Update

Setting up xulrunner-1.9.1 (

This prevents me to even see other updates cause update manager says the index is broken. How can I solve this? I don't want to reinstall firefox because I'm worried it blocks again (now firefox works).

OpenSUSE :: Zypper Installs Conflicting Package Without Complaint?

Apr 20, 2010

I created an rpm that attempts to install the file /etc/rsyslog.conf (which on my system is already installed and owned by the rsyslog package). When I install this through rpm, I get the appropriate error. However, when I install the rpm through zypper, I get no complaints, and in the end two packages end up owning the file.

Is this the expected behavior? Does zypper force install rpms despite errors? I looked through all the config files, but couldn't find any setting dealing with this case. Is this something that is controlled by a config somewhere? I'm running openSUSE 11.2-0


linux:/usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 # rpm -i testfile-2.0.1-0.x86_64.rpm
file /etc/rsyslog.conf from install of testfile-2.0.1-0.x86_64 conflicts with file from package rsyslog-4.4.1-3.1.x86_64

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 Install :: "zypper Lp" Lists Patch With Cannot Be Installed

Apr 30, 2010

I administer a lot of OpenSuSE 11.1 x86_64 machines and one of them has the problem that the command "zypper lp" lists a needed patch for "translation-update", version 532, but then "zypper patch" says that there is nothing to do.

I cannot get rid of this "needed patch", check out these commands I tried:

machine:/root # zypper lu
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
No updates found.


Also note that about 50 other machines use this (mirrored update repository), none of them has this problem. They are all updated correctly, showing "0 needed patches".

Ubuntu :: Update Installed Packages List Or Force Removal Of Package?

Jul 21, 2011

I was working on my flash drive install of Ubuntu, when I squashfsed my /usr. Long story short, I some how ended up with a working /usr, but with a few packages marked as installed, but not having its components installed (emacs). When I try to remove emacs (emacs23-nox), it gives me numerous errors about files (all relating to emacs) not existing (all in /usr). Thus my questions are as follows:

1) Is there a way to force the removal without it caring about missing packages?


2) Is there a way to reload which packages are installed by checking which files exist, etc?


3) Should I just nuke and re-install?

Fedora :: Screen Locks Up During Graphical Boot After Update?

Jan 5, 2010

After a recent "yum update", my laptop screen locks up during graphical boot. I use rhgb on the kernel line. The container on the screen fills up with charge and then the screen locks. I have to use the power button to reboot. If I press ESC when the boot splash appears (i.e., boot in text mode), it works.

If I set plymouth to "details" mode using
$ plymouth-set-default-theme details --rebuild-initrd
It boots up correctly. This is equivalent to a text boot screen. I doubt whether it is a video driver problem. I reinstalled the nvidia driver and it is working. I also reinstalled plymouth and plymouth-themes-*.
