Thread: Possible error in openSUSE 12.3 zypper/yast updation process (openSUSE12.3 |x64 | KDE) or 12.3 Repo

    Default Possible error in openSUSE 12.3 zypper/yast updation process (openSUSE12.3 |x64 | KDE) or 12.3 Repo

    Hello everyone thanks for making this wonderful distro work.

    I have been using openSUSE from version 12.1 onwards. After the release of 12.3 as I did not have time to go through a
    compleate install I chose to stay away from it and continued to use 12.2. Two months later I first tried to do a fresh install
    of 12.3 but encountered a typical problem of zypper becoming inresponsive or hangs in the middle of a first update.
    What happens it starts to download packages, after some packages it shows ...starting and then waits forever. If I Press
    Ctrl+c twice and then zypper up it starts, but again gets stuck ....Ctrl+c twice ...zypper up and back to business
    ....Again stuck! Every time it got stuck I checked my internet connection and found it was working fine.

    I follewed caf's instruction to switch to packman repo(multimedia guide), yast got stuck as I cannot press Ctrl+c to abort it press cancel but it also waits forever.
    Killing a process works but it also takes time.


    I have had three attempts to make 12.3 work for me but failed everytime. Problem was same, as I have 12.2 image taken I atleast was able to
    be revert to 12.2 and 12.2 woks like a charm absolutely no problem in updating.

    For thouse who might question about my internet connection let me tell you that same pc does update 12.2 without a fuss, linux mint
    update, downloads files, torrents.

    It is my believe that 12.3 (64bit) zypper as well as yast has got something wrong it just can not give the necessery push in case a repo become non responsive.

    I wonder 12.2 never gives me trouble in updating but 12.3 always. If someone here experienced the same thing, I would like some explanation.

    Now if I do not press Ctrl+c it can stand here all day!

    Sorry for making my post longer, I still have doubts if I am able to make you people
    understand my situation.

    If I understand this right, he already did install 12.3.
    But zypper hangs when installing the online updates.

    @retrospectt:
    How much RAM do you have?
    Maybe it's too small, we had such a case here not too long ago.

    Perhaps zypper would work if you logged in to IceWM f.e.?

    if i understand correctly he has installed 12.3 and is doing an
    update, so dup is not right for this use.

    @wolfi323 & @DenverD

    Thanks to you guys you have understood me perfectly. I did a 12.3 fresh install and I was trying
    to update a new installation. This is the forth time I tried to fresh install 12.3 and then update it.
    I once tried to install some packages through zypper but after 2-3 packages zypper got stuck.

    I have got 4 GB of RAM and I was(is) using 64 bit SUSE so amount of RAM is not the problem.

    Let me tell you guys I have not been doing something new, I have been doing this since 12.1 and never faced this type of problem.

    Because zypper gets stuck so I tried to divided the update downloading....my intention was to zypper patch...400+mb then zypper up 300+mb,
    instead of zypper up 700+mb in one go. Whenever zypper gets stuck if I Press Ctrl+c twice and then
    zypper up again it starts to download immidietly. But how many times should I cancel and then restart the update process.


    Please tell me if the 12.3 openSUSE repos having some sort of problem in responding to an update process.
    I have faced this with zypper as well as with yast. Yast also would get stuck.


    My internet connection is fine, I updated my 12.2 system few days ago without problem. Linux mint 14(triple boot with win7), ubuntu vbox vm they download updates without issue.
    It is the 12.3 I am having problem. It's like after every 3-4 packages I need to give it a PUSH because zypper/yast cannot do it!

    I would not switch to 12.3 but 12.2 will be end of life after Jan 15, 2014. Hence the fresh installation of 12.3(I always go for fresh installation after backing up my files)

    @caf I did what you asked me to do but again yast got stuck in the same position for 50 minutes.
    SUSE Paste

    Check system monitor snap no network movement
    SUSE Paste

    SUSE Paste
    I then press "Abort" nothing happened, System monitor->Process Table->Yast->Kill yast-> Before closing
    showed "Zombie"

    Updation got stuck.

    Yes, that's plenty. The guy that I was talking about only had 512MB.
    And I don't have any problem whatsoever in a VM with 768MB.

    Please tell me if the 12.3 openSUSE repos having some sort of problem in responding to an update process.

    YaST and zypper use the same library (libzypp), so they behave the same.
    I don't think this could be caused by repo problems.

    But I have to admit I haven't seen anything like that before.

    Does it work if you install packages with RPM?
    YaST/zypper download the packages to /var/cache/zypp/packages/ (there are subdirectories for each repo there), so you could try to install some of the downloaded updates manually with RPM:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -U filename.rpm
    You can specify more than one filename and also use wildcards.
    So to install all packages in the current directory, run:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -U *.rpm

    Well first I have to finish downloading them.

    If you can remember zypper/yast both acts the same for me. Yast becomes zombie process after sometime.

    I live in India, could it be the way the repos acting differently when getting request from India.
    This is a very unique situation I am facing, I am doing what I have been doing with the previous versions. I get my share of knowledges from the forum, to tell you the truth I have been waiting for someone to bring this issue up.

    Even today I updated my linux mint 14 cinnamon DE no problem at all.
    OpenSUSE used to be my primary os. It is very frustrating for me to not be able to get a fully working 12.3 system.

    First time I did a fresh install with the 12.3 DVD and thought zypper on DVD might be corrupted so I downloaded live kde 64 bit but same thing again.

    Please ignore my post if you find it boring and could not relate to it.

    I feel sorry that I might have to change my primary os to mint, Ubuntu with it's unity forced me to change to openSUSE and now.....

    first: did you check that you had a good iso download--like discussed
    here https://en.opensuse.org/SDBownload_help#Checksums

    and, did you self-test the install media by booting from it (do NOT
    run it from inside MS-Windows) and selecting "Check Installation
    Media" like you see here http://tinyurl.com/b856ekd

    _any_ error in either test is too many! and the path to a smile
    begins by getting the install media 100% right.

    let us know the results of both tests . . .

    second: are there any hints in the logs about what might be going on?
    look in (these are WILD guesses at where hints *might* be--none may
    be at all useful):
    /var/log/YaST2/[whatever---i woudn't know which]
    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/pk_backend_zypp
    /var/log/zypper.log

    <b>wait!</b> this is happening _during_ install!!

    [asking others in this thread]:
    where does YaST put its complaints which occur _during_ install? how
    does one look at them?

    that is, if the install GUI is 'stuck' is it possible to Ctrl+Alt+Fx,
    log in (as who??) then look at the install logs, with cat and less?
    or, will the logs persist after breaking out?

    hmmm...i don't know how to find out what is happening!
