    Default zypper: unknown checksum type

    Hi,

    Looks like the repository KDE 4.3 Stable for openSUSE 11.1 has been updated
    with a new checksum of type "8 : sha256" which libzypp/satsovler does not
    understand.

    So when doing a refresh from the commandline or from the 'updater' tray tool
    you get errors. The command line says:

    Building repository 'kde-4.3-stable' cache [done]
    Error building the cache:
    'repo2solv.sh' '-o' '/var/cache/zypp/solv/kde-4.3-stable/solv'
    '/var/cache/zypp/raw/kde-4.3-stable'
    Unknown checksum type: 8: sha256

    If you are getting this error then you can wait for the repo maintainers to
    change to a different checksum method (unlikely), or for the zypper
    maintainers to update it to understand sha256 or ...?

    Or maybe my interpretation of what has changed/broken is all wrong...

    Cheers,

    Ron

    Hi
    See the mailing list "[opensuse] Zypper data probably corrupted, how to
    re-create?"
    http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2.../msg00534.html

    Looks like some are getting slowly fixed....

    The problem has been fixed on the repository end sometime around 5:40pm PDT.
    I did not need to clean, repair, rebuild or in any way fix my zypper
    database - it was not the source of the problem. I did submit a bug report
    to buzilla - and in fact the same problem was already in bugzilla just for a
    different repository from a few days ago.

    This is the previous bug report "Bug 598360 - zypper does not know sha256
    checksums of repo metadata" which was opened and closed earlier today.

    Here is my bug report "Bug 598642 - unknown checksum type sha256 on KDE 4.3
    Stable repo". At this time it has not been closed, but I bet it soon will
    be.

    Cheers,

    Ron
