Thread: No packages

  1. #1

    Default No packages

    I downloaded Suse yesterday and when loading it said
    'YaST2 Package amaruk brokem, integrity failed'
    'Package yast 2-trans-enGB is broken, integrity failed'
    I have therefore noticed no packages in the system. How can I resolve this please

    Did you verify the md5sum of your download as well as your burned CD/DVD
    (if you used one) before trying to install?

    Good luck.

    Ah MD what is that? Means nothing to me. I thought I was downloading 400 odd mgb's but it took 4.7gb's Wife ain't pleased at the moment as I have a restriction on bandwidth its costing over 10 just to download it. Any way besides the point. I just burnt a copy of the iso and did a test before burning and thats it. So how do I verify MD5sum? I have an AthlonXP and went to the right download. Other than that no idea.

    Is there anyway to resolve it? Or do I have to reload everything?

    Thanks

    I looked at this md5 and I can't understand any of it!! I tried to look at it on Win XP but frankly it just goes over my head. Just to full of jargon. Is there a simple explanation on how to get this to verify my iso on XP?

    Download md5sum.exe (if you're stuck in windows where you download the
    ISO) and verify it matches the md5sum hash provided on the download
    site. You should always check the md5sum of all your downloads unless
    another hash is provided (sha1sum is popular too). *nix has 'md5sum'
    and 'sha1sum' provided by default so just use it against the file:

    md5sum /path/to/your/file.iso

    Good luck.

    if your going to check the md5 sum,
    here is a free app. to check it.
    when you downloaded suse 11, that page
    gave you a long set of numbers which
    should match the image of suse 11,
    you downloaded.
    hope this helps

    Thanks for all your help I decided to check the ISO with K3b and it has an MD5 checker and this is the sum it came up with. I opened up the Suse I have at the moment which is badly loaded. How do I know if this sum is ok?

    Without knowing the exact source of your ISO that's really hard.
    Thankfully Google found it as a valid md5sum for
    openSUSE-11.0-DVD-i386.iso so if that is what you are checking the
    md5sum of then yes, you have a good download. The next check is to make
    sure that your burn worked properly. k3b, when burning, has an option
    to 'Verify Written Data' which basically does an md5sum against the DVD
    once burned to be sure it was burned properly. There is also, I
    believe, an installation medium check you can do when booting from the
    DVD that should be better than nothing if you cannot verify your DVD any
    other way.

    Good luck.

    Maybe it would help to explain a little more about md5sum. Basically
    md5 is a hash function/algorithm (see Wikipedia for lots of details)
    that lets you quickly calculate a fairly-unique value for a given set of
    data. These are used sometimes for passwords (so the password is never
    sent across a wire in a form that can be reversed) but are also used to
    calculate a checksum for some other given set of data. Without a hash
    the only way to ensure a download worked properly is to download it,
    download it again, and compare the two and then hope you didn't download
    it the same wrong way twice. A hash lets you get a unique signature of
    sorts from the people who created the valid data which is able to be
    quickly checked against your own checksum of what you downloaded. If
    your checksum matches theirs (this little string of gobble-de-gook being
    the checksum) then you can be relatively sure the download was valid.
    There is a lot of math behind all of this that is in Wikipedia and other
    places, but just take my word for it that it works. When you download
    from opensuse.org there is a checksum on the webpage with this
    hash/checksum. when you finish downloading you can either use md5sum to
    check it explicitly or you can use k3b to do the same during the burn
    and optional (but encouraged) verification process.

    Getting off the md5sum topic you may want to try burning at a lower
    speed.... some optical (CD/DVD) drives do not like media burned at high
    speeds.

    Good luck.
