Thread: suse 11.2 updater not working?

  1. #1

    Default suse 11.2 updater not working?

    I'v not seen any security or any other updates, including firefox for many months(since January or earlier). Is there anything wrong?

    If you want updates you'll need to add the Update repo'.

    Package repositories - openSUSE

    Samsung RV510 + openSUSE 12.1 64bit + KDE 4.7.2

    su terminal

    Code:
    zypper mr -d 1
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/ updates
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss/ non-oss
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/ oss
    Use your mouse to copy and paste the code in to the terminal, one at a time.

    then do
    Code:
    zypper ref
    then
    Code:
    zypper up

    I forgot to save the terminal data. So, this is what I remember. All statements entered and successful. "314(?) packages to update. 8 new.". Terminal showed download and install for those packages. Firefox is now at v3.59 --- Looks like that did the job, thanks.

    I'm still going to wait and see if I get another update for anything. I'll look for any updates on suse news(or where?) and see if they appear on updater applet.

    The updater icon changed to software update available(not security). When I clicked on it, it requested the admin password. After, it didn't do anything. When I went to yast to check for online updates. It showed software updates available. So, I clicked to download and install.

    The manual update worked. Software updater(icon) seems be not working right. Yast online update works. So, i'll have to use yast for updating software. Taskbar icon(software update) will notify me of updates, but will not retrieve them if I enter admin password.

    Personally, one of the first things I do in a new install is tell the updater applet NOT to start at boot and then I reboot. From then on I set up everything in Yast Software Management. And I run most of my updating from there too, as I use development repos. But zypper up works fine on a basic system once you have it all set up.
