Thread: Dependency conflicts

    Default Dependency conflicts

    Ok, I just don't get it.

    Would someone try and explain this so's an Old guy in Montana can understand?

    I just tried updating and I am getting a lot of Dependency Conflicts.

    I suspect that it may be related to my Installation Sources (another question).

    I'm running 10.2 and I'm very reluctant to upgrade. Since I just DON'T GET IT!

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Oh, a list of installation sources to use might be helpful.

    The first thing I would say is don't upgrade from 10.2 to 11. Backup your important user data (like /home, /etc and specific application data), download the DVD/CD and do a clean install.
    There are many changes and I think you will have more headaches than when doing a clean install.

    Out of curiosity, how are you trying to update? Directly from the repositories?

    Cheers,
    Wj
    Have a lot of fun!

    Similar update problem today using little update applet whenever it tells me to do some updating...

    It does an update, asks for re start. Then does an update, asks for re start, then does an update, asks for restart...


    Is it safe to assume updater behaving normal, just doing a lot of things ?



    Looking found updates were grouped as:

    kmps
    mkinitrd
    kernel


    Some items appeared to be missing dependencies :

    libcap
    gle
    libnl
    mingetty
    patch
    xorg-x11-liblCE
    sqlite
    attr
    libelf1
    libpcap
    iproute2
    libgsm
    lua-libs
    libstdc++42
    yp-tools
    startup-notification
    xorg-x11-libXext
    fam
    aspell
    grep


    Trying to resolve whether will either DELETE or IGNORE

    - delete [name]
    - ignore this requirement just here.



    IF select IGNORE does this ignore it forever, or just until next time look for updates ?


    System Monitor says:

    openSUSE 10.3 (X86-64)
    Release 10.3
    Kernel Linux 2.6.22.17-0.1-default
    GNOME 2.20.0

    Firefox says:

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8.1.14) Gecko/20080410 SUSE/2.0.0.14-0.1 Firefox/2.0.0.14

    kernel updates are normal to make you have to restart your system, because the restart is necessary for you to actually start using the updated kernel.

    After you get a few that require a restart out of the way, you will likely have a mass install of the remaining ones you choose

    I asked it to show me some additional information, so have been seeing choices... with Patch Selector asking

    Where option was
    # pattern:enhanced_base has missing depencies
    o- install mdadm although it would change the architecture

    selected install ;-)


    However not sure whether to DELETE or IGNORE when they the only options, also will the entire upgrade fail if not select either ?

    example
    # libcap has missing depencies
    asks whether to DELETE or IGNORE

    Have been leaving until now, making this list rather long.

    Is it reasonable to assume selecting DELETE should create no problems ?

    Open a terminal and enter:

    $ su
    # zypper refresh
    # zypper update

    What is the output?

    Like Montana Paul, this old guy is a bit lost.

    Suspected earlier the problem related to my Installation Sources settings so unticked Optional and 3rd party updates.

    Was unticking part of problem ? Ticking and running again to see if additional sources resolves problem.


    Would just delete everything where delete is an option if not so nervous about unexpected consequences...

    The problem is a result of repos which you had enabled that are no longer in that same condition. I would suggest that you keep the basic repos (non-oss, oss, updates) that you have currently enabled, then open the YaST Software module and choose the 'Upgrade' option for each of those pkgs missing deps. If they still complain then simply remove them as long as they are not system critical pkgs (such as the kernel). This will re-set your system to a base state from which you can safely build upon.

    after looking at zypper update a few times, decided to try turning off repositories to see if problem was with one only. [BTW trying to rename them during this to see which does what.]


    # zypper update
    * Reading repository 'Main Repository (NON-OSS)' cache
    * Reading repository '10.3 updates opensuse' cache
    * Reading repository 'openSUSE-10.3-FTP 10.3' cache

    * Reading installed packages [100&#37;]

    20 Problems:


    # zypper update

    * Reading repository 'openSUSE-10.3-FTP (OSS) 10.3 YaST' cache
    * Reading installed packages [100%]

    Nothing to do.

    So set to include repository: '10.3 updates opensuse Security YUM'

    Problems appears related to one particular repository address.
    '10.3 updates opensuse'




    Is it the word YUM or Security ?-)

    oh yes, removed it promptly, until understand whether need it !
