Thread: Can't install apps locally opensuse 11.1

  1. #1

    Unhappy Can't install apps locally opensuse 11.1

    Help! Install attempts from rpms on local harddisk fail. Yast or command line both return <file> not found on medium. :-( I've checked folder permissions, tried from root login, creating a local repo, etc. Something is definitely broken. SOS - I've upgraded and can't install my accounting packages.

    * blinddog,

    in a console, become root and search for the file. Like

    su
    cd /path/to/rpm
    ll

    and please post the output of ll

    I receive the following:

    bigdog:/home/blinddog/Downloads # ||
    -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `||'


    What is the double pipe trying to find?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    * blinddog,

    it is a lower case "LL", not pipes.

    * blinddog,

    that looks fine, I thiought it might be a rights or file ownership issue.

    So, on a console, try

    su
    rpm -Uvh /path/to/nameof.rpm

    Any errors?
    I cannot see why it should throw a "file not found" if the file name is correct.

    I am having similar problems. Same rpm quasar single 2.1.3-1.
    Have you been able to install quasar and if so can I ask how you were able to do it?
    I have tried for hours typing...
    rpm -i quasar-single-2.1.2.rpm
    rpm -i quasar-single-2.1.3.rpm
    and many other combinations within su terminal to no avail.
    Any ideas??

    try using:
    su -c 'rpm -iUvh quasar-single-2.1.3.rpm'
    Enter rootpassword when asked for, and post output (caused by the 'v' in -iUvh) here.

    Nope, didn't work. Anyhow, I was only for the moment wanting to test the Quasar Package and I have been able to get it going on my ancient laptop running ubuntu 8.04.1 - it also had a problem but at least the .deb file told me what dependiencies were missing. Quasar does work well and even on a 233mhz Tecra 8000.
