  1. #1

    Exclamation I've deleted some system packages, Dolphin doesn't start

    Dolphin gives errors below:

    Questions:

    1) How can I learn which packages I've deleted or installed to make the changes back - I mean install deleted packages and delete installed by mistake?
    2) Is there an instrument to make a complete system roll-back to some time point?

    how long did this system run okay before you added or deleted enough
    software to ruin it?

    i ask, because if it was just a matter of hours or a day or two you
    probably will save a lot of time by just starting over..

    or, it you wanna try just make sure you have *only* these four repos
    enabled and updating: oss, non-oss, update, packman

    and NO others, then in a terminal become root and issue these, one at
    a time:

    Code:
    zypper clean -a
    zypper ref
    zypper dup
    and, read my caveat and tag line below...before you do any of that!

    Reinstall dolphin. It should resolve dependencies. Of course, there's
    no guarantee that you didn't hose other need system level files too. A
    reinstall is your best bet, as DenverD mentions.

    Clonezilla maybe?

    Thank you very much, DenverD! Great advice! It has helped! I didn't think it can be so simple. Very useful commands indeed.

    Judging the content of this and other posts you made. It looks suspiciously like a re-install is on the horizon.

    ok, you very welcome...then magic command line incantations i gave did
    nothing but *reset* your system to the software which came with
    openSUSE 11.3--which is (mostly) known to work......that is to say the
    magic just removed the mistakes you introduced into the system..

    so, read carefully what caf4926 replied [Make a mental note, Not to
    Fiddle with things!]...words dripping with sage wisdom and advice!

    its like this: when folks give a little kid (not that i think you
    _are_ a little kid, only inexperienced here) a new bike to learn how
    to ride on, they often have "training wheels" to keep the kid from
    falling over and breaking their head, toes and everything in between..

    big bikes, for big kids almost never have "training wheels" because
    the older, wiser and more seasoned will usually find a good way to
    practice riding safely (a helmet, a grassy field, knee/elbow pads etc)..

    anyway, Linux in general has no "training wheels" (unlike some other
    operating systems which target the very young, and very old...too old
    to think), so running at full speed to twiddle every dial, and try
    every possible combination of new packages (just because they are
    free) is kinda like trying to learn how to ride a 15 speed racing bike
    (no training wheels anywhere) with no helmet.....in traffic....heavy
    traffic...during rush hour . . .

    my free advice: actually Linux *does* have training wheels...LOTS of
    them, they are the manuals, documents, videos, slide shows, wiki pages
    and yes, even the mistakes and repairs others did RECORDED in these
    fora and others...

    the trick is to do more reading than _trying_ everything you can think
    of....the one line version of all of the above is in my sig, below..
