    Exclamation Zypper problem on Suse 11.0

    Hi all!

    I'm having a strange problem in one of my Suse 11.0 machines.

    There is a strange problem, affecting ALL repositories here. For all them when zypper or yast tries to access any of the repositories, I get messages like this:

    O repositório 'openSUSE BuildService -' está atualizado.
    Construindo cache do repositório 'openSUSE BuildService -' [concluído]
    Erro ao construir o banco de dados:
    '' '-o' '/var/cache/zypp/solv/' '/var/cache/zypp/raw/'
    /usr/bin/ line 30: cd: -o: invalid option
    cd: usage: cd [-L|-P] [dir]
    Ignorando o repositório 'openSUSE BuildService -' devido ao erro acima.
    Btw, sorry for the portuguese version.

    I don't know what it can be, but affects all them, making both zypper and yast resources managers useless. More interesting, when I try to place any files to substitute the failures, be it a mkdir for the solv plus a touch for the cookie, or the contents taken from a different machine where everything is working fine, in both cases it I use yast of zypper it CLEANS all the directories contents of each of the repository directories inside /var/cache/zypp/solv !!!

    Does anybody has a clue on it? After recovering almost the whole machine with the help of zypper, end up with this problem is a shame.

    Btw, when I was recovering the system the only affected repository was the mozilla one, but then when I was trying to solve the problem I issued a zypper clean -a which in turn just SPREAD the whole problem.

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Line 30 in that shell script on my system doesn't look anything like your error message. Have you applied all updates? Well I suppose with zypper out of action, that might be a bit of a problem. Anyway, the version of the package that script comes from is:


    See if you can update this manually.

    Hmm, just realised you are are writing about 11.0 and I have 11.1. However the same principle applies, you should apply any updates to the package from which the script comes from. Probably there was a corresponding update to satsolver-tools for 11.0 too.
