Thread: Fresh install of 11.4 has problems updating from Tumbleweed repo

    Default Fresh install of 11.4 has problems updating from Tumbleweed repo

    Hello all,

    Brand new openSUSE user and I've just installed 11.4 Gnome desktop version. I have made no modifications to the default install, except running update online in YaST (I received some updates labelled as bugfixes).

    I then followed the instructions on the Tumbleweed wiki page (Portal:Tumbleweed - openSUSE) to add the Tumbleweed repo using zypper:

    Code:
    zypper ar --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tumbleweed/standard/ Tumbleweed
    I then ran under su (choosing "a" to always accept the GPG key:

    Code:
    zypper dup --from Tumbleweed
    The short version is that updating from Tumbleweed subsequently and consistently fails with "2 Problems". I will paste the entire terminal output at the end of this post in the hope it makes sense to someone.

    If anyone can help me resolve this problem then I'd be very grateful; the Tumbleweed rolling release repo is a very attractive-looking feature, but I wonder if my problem is a known bug, since I'm running a fresh install?

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    Code:
    linux-ugrc:/home/alex # zypper dup --from Tumbleweed

    Thanks for the reply, I followed your instructions and looks like I've ended up with a graphical version of the "solving conflicts manually" dialogue that I got in the terminal (screenshot attached).



    Thanks again for any solutions :>>

    I don't suppose you use vmware so

    deinstallation of vmware-guest-kmp-default-2010.12.19_k2.6.37.1_1.2-3.3.i586

    You'll probably need to delete the virtual box and the preload packages too

    Once you do that, you no longer have openSUSE 11.4, you now have "openSUSE
    Tumbleweed", a different distro. Which means that if you have problems you
    gave to ask them in the openSUSE factory maillist (per their own
    instructions on that wiki page). Not here.

    Sorry to be so harsh, but let us have things clear.

    This is a very serious change, much more serious than just enabling a kde repo.
