    Default Help with Error..

    Hi, I'v been using OpenSuse 11 for about 5 days on my HP dv6552e laptop iv got everything going good till today when it froze twice and had to do a hard shutdown. After rebooting i got this error when trying to update or initialize the Yast installer..

    There was an error in the repository initialization.
    'PK_TMP_DIR': Failed to cache repo (1).
    History:
    - 'repo2solv.sh' '-o' '/var/cache/zypp/solv/PK_TMP_DIR/solv' '/var/tmp/TmpDir.1tC2U6'
    /usr/bin/repo2solv.sh: line 34: cd: /var/tmp/TmpDir.1tC2U6: No such file or directory

    Thanks and im not too n00by to Linux now, iv used Ubuntu and Linux Mint

    One of your partitions may be fed up. Or getting mounted read-only due to errors.

    That could be true anyway to do something like CHKDSK/f/r in it on the partitions ?

    Well, yes, the command would be
    Code:
    fsck -A
    but it must not be run on a live filesystem. See
    Code:
    man fsck
    . The solution would be to run it at system reboot -- only I don't know how it's done exactly, you'll have to google for it ...
