    some type of network trouble i suspect. can you reach the server by other
    means, "ping calibre-ebook.com", per example?

    Hi phani,

    It appears that I am not the only one having troubles with Calibre. The best thing to do, at least it worked for me, is to install it on calibres own website, using the commandline in the terminal.


    greetings, Frank

    that's what i did, too. some time ago iread a discussion on the author's
    website, where users complained that there wasn't an uninstall script. the
    author was very determined that this wasn't his job, but the distro
    packagers', and if people wanted to uninstall calibre, they should use the
    install log. unfortunately i can't find such a log. if or when i do want
    to get rid of this version of calibre, i'm afraid i'll have to look at the
    install script itself, checking what it copied where...

    BTW, just now i installed openSUSE factory (11.4), and before starting to
    mess around with non-standard repos, i installed calibre from the
    devel/tools/documentation repo--and it works fine. i assume that, on my oS
    11.3 install, i somehow got newer libraries than calibre expects, by
    adding various repos that i need to run other things.

    That repo (for 11.3 in my case) is the one I used (see post #7 in this thread). It works fine, and it seems simpler than installing from the calibre website.

    I completely agree with frankjeman. But I am
    interested in why somebody responsible dont repair this repository package or remove it from repository. Petr

    just to read epub files, there's also FBReader in the education repo.
    especially if you read a lot, it's much more convenient than FF & plugin,
    and i like it's interface better than calibre. i use calibre mostly to
    convert other formats into epub; calibre understands MS .lit files, per
    example.
