    Default Problems With KPackage

    Ok so, I'm trying to install the files that I downloaded yesterday. When I get home to install them it tells me "Login Problem, Please Login Manually" Ok so I have no idea what that means. I'm in root and I did give my password correct and all otherwise it wouldn't have allowed me into the root user.

    So I also check to see that I have the right programs I need, and they are all in there. The only other problem I have it that it gives me this "Error, cannot connect to server" and when the details show up it tells me it cannot connect to download.opensuse.org. Well, maybe it's because I don't have internet access....yet.

    Does anyone have ideas of whatelse I can do to install the RPMs I downloaded?
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0GHz, Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT 512MB
    1GB DDR RAM , SeaGate 750GB HDD, Multi-Boot - OpenSuSE 11.2 (32-Bit), Windows XP (32-bit), and Windows 7 Beta (Although it's really Vista Version 2 Beta)

    Installing an rpm with the "zypper in filename.rpm" (as root) is the best way to install an rpm because zypper will download and install the required dependencies if there are any. You can always use the command "rpm -ivh filename.rpm". If dependencies are required, they won't be downloaded for you. You could try downloading the dependencies yourself, but your dependencies may require additional files.

    What are you trying to install?

    I'm trying to install Game Console Emulators (ie TuxNES, ZSNES, etc) also I'm trying to install Xen (or update it. I actually didn't check to see if OpenSuse 11.0 has Xen) Also I don't have internet connection at home. I'm using Ubuntu at work.

    Just a guess from your description...

    I'm guessing that you downloaded the packages the day before when you had a network connection, now when you're home and trying to install offline SuSE is trying to connect without a network connection.

    Yast/Kpackage/whatever when launched and is preparing to install your packages is preparing to if necessary download packages from any sources you have configured and is complaining that it can't contact your network sources.

    Solution:
    If you're <absolutely certain> you don't need to download additional packages from the Internet, you can go into Yast > Software > Repositories and click the boxes that disable those sources. I strongly suggest at least having local media (OpenSuSE DVD) available if you're installing completely offline.

    HTH. And, don't forget to re-enable those sources when you're back online or you might have problems with updates and installing new packages.
