Thread: Pacman Curl Error - What's wrong?

    Default Pacman Curl Error - What's wrong?

    Hi members!
    What does this error message mean?
    I want to do some audio recording with my 10.2 system. If possible I'll wait for 11.3 to upgrade my dial-up Pentium.
    Using Yast2 SW management the install download stops at the same spot as it does with Zypper. Glame is the app I wanted. Audacity installed fine. I already have Lame.
    This is the Zypper error message:
    frankk[2296] sudo zypper install glame
    root's password:

    It's having a problem finding the files, that's why you are getting the error.
    If you go to the ftp site, you could download the files and manually install them. (http://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/mirro....pm.2.i586.rpm)
    The url you have is adding a ':' to the end of the filename/url.
    10.2 is getting to the end of it's life and 10.3 is the only current version that is supported. If you want to stay with 10.x for now, why not upgrade to 10.3? If I remember, there weren't major problems with the upgrade.

    Thank you for your response, whych,
    I will try the ftp link. I'm still not sure if Audacity will work with lame or if it needs glame. The Audacity install tried to install glame.
    Upgrading to 10.3 concerns me because of the download volume required of my dial-up connection.
    In the past I have bought new releases on DVDs. Is there documentation available on the process to upgrade from 10.2 to 10.3?

    If you download the network install cd, it installs over the network and only downloads what you need/select for your installation.

    Thank you whych,
    Is the network install cd in a repository? a Dial-up connection often breaks during a long online session.

    A follow-up question from your previous response deals with the ... in the ftp link. I made it to the i586 dir with all the 10.2 rpms..

    While connected, I saw glame scroll by in response to an ls. ls gl* didn't get me a smaller list. Can you give me the 10.2 glame filename or a command line command I can run under ftp to get the glame filename displayed in my terminal?

    TIA Frank K

    The file name is: glame-2.0.2rc1-42.pm.2.i586.rpm.

    The network install cd is in: Index of /distribution/10.3/iso/cd
    You want one of the mini .iso files. You can also get the live cd and use that to install.
    The install uses the opensuse repo.

    Thanks again whych,
    I got glame installed and downloaded this iso from the index:
    openSUSE-10.3-GM-i386-mini.iso 04-Oct-2007 11:46 73M Mirrors Metalink
    I'm expecting I have to burn the downloaded file onto an iso cd and boot off of it for the 10.3 update.
    k3b gave me the growisofs Vs 6 error. Packman gave me another curl error when I tried to update dvd+rw... to Vs 7.
    For what it's worth, I found command line completion works on the ftp server. ls dvd "tab key" produces a filtered list of dvd files that fit into the terminal window.
    Now dvd+rw... Vs 7 is installed.
    Please let me know if I'm not on the right track!

    whych, list,
    I know this thread is drifting off the multimedia topic.

    I came up with a catch-22 situation with the dial-up network install. Let me know if I should move this post.

    If not, there isn't a network (modem) connection present during the boot from the 10.3 mini-iso cd.

    Will he 10.3 mini-iso cd open the 10.2 modem connection or can I somehow boot to 10.2 and switch to 10.3?

    OK, try looking at this page:
    Installation - openSUSE
    If you still have a problem, post a new thread in the install/help section.

    whych, the answer to my 10.3 upgrade may be on the URL you gave, but I can use some more help in guiding my way thru the choices. None of the examples I saw deal with a dial-up modem. Thanks again for you help with the curl error!
    List, thank you for your indulgence on this off-topic development. I'll move my upgrade pursuit as whych suggested.
