Thread: Maybe something wrong with KPackagekit or zypper or YaST2 on my opensuse 11.4

    Question Maybe something wrong with KPackagekit or zypper or YaST2 on my opensuse 11.4

    Hi,everybody,

    I am a newbie to opensuse. I installed 11.4 from the DVD and run it for several days.

    However, I can't get KPackageKit run successfully even once. Every-time I get the same message that can't correct the software origin as following:


    While I can update the software through zypper in the terminal window, I also get a warning message to say some package will NOT be update as following :


    I already implement the one-click solution to thread:Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide, except that I got another warning message when I click to switch system packages to the version on packman repository as following:


    Anything I can do and need to do with these issues?

    Another question is every time I click the accept button of the YaST2 window, it will install the packages and quit directly and never give any confirmation of the result. Is this normal?

    The last question is when I use Amarok or qmmp to play music which be shared via Samba on my homeserver, the system always copy the music file to the local folder,/var/tmp, and then can begin to play rather than play it immediately by stream. Is this also normal?

    Your helpful reply will be highly appreciated.

    Have a good day.

    On 1: Try removing the Packman repo, and readd it.
    On 2: These packages are not being installed because you told Yast to get those packages from another repo
    On 3: Keep obsolete linphone

    And........a warm welcome here. Enjoy

    A proxy error, check settings.

    zypper will not update if it means a vendor change.

    I would choose the third option, then look around for that libmediastreamer
    it is complaining about.

    Yes, unless you change it. /etc/sysconfig/yast2, var PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT.

    In linux, traditionally no message at exit means success.

    Curious. Must be intentional.

    Thank you for replying promptly.

    I delete all the active repo and then reboot the computer and then readd and then reboot again. Unfortunately, I got the similar error message just with the different repo which is no.1 of the list of KPackageKit as same as Packman do before. The screen capture is as following:


    On 2: These packages are not being installed because you told Yast to get those packages from another repo
    Yes, I supposed this also. However, When I choose to keep obsolete linphone and switch system packages to the version from Packman. And I run the instructions again, and I got the same result. Is anything else going wrong?

    On 3: Keep obsolete linphone
    Yes, I choose this and click the accept button.And as usually, The YaST2 quit without any message.

    And........a warm welcome here.
    Thanks again. And................when will you come back to answer my last two questions?

    In any case, do not reboot your system after every action you do. All waste of time.

    I do not connect to internet via proxy. Would you please to tell me where to check settings you mentioned here?

    zypper will not update if it means a vendor change.
    So what should I do? Excuse me for that I am a noob.
    I ever run the following instructions one by one:

    sudo zypper dup -r packman
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper update

    However, I still get the same message.

    I would choose the third option, then look around for that libmediastreamer

    Yes, this could be another nice try.

    Yes, unless you change it. /etc/sysconfig/yast2, var PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT.

    Note this. I think it is acceptable. However it do may confuse the new user shift from Windows. Quit without message sometimes can mean application crash on Windows platform.

    Curious. Must be intentional.
    I hope that was just a joke. However, it's not.
    And It works well by the same software and the same content and the same network on the other Linux distribution. I mean play immediately by stream it.

    Actually, some changed settings will not take effect until reboot. For example change the format of the digital clock right-bottom cornet from 12H to 24H. (Or maybe it will work just by log out and log in. I will try next time )

    Of course you at the most only have to login again. This is not a system setting, but a user setting that only is valid for a particular user.

    Think about the consequences when one of many loged in users (maybe your wife as an example) just changes the way she wants to see the clock on her desktop and then everybody would have to logout and the system to be rebooted to activate that. That would of course not be acceptable.

    Reboot? What for? This is not windows.

    I don't know, I don't use packagekit. There is an "/etc/sysconfig/proxy",
    but I don't think pk uses it.

    Notice that the message is not an error nor a warning. It is just a message
    so that you know the situation. It just tells you that in one of the repos
    you have configured there are newer packages that those you have in the
    system, but will not be installed because the current ones are from a
    different repo or have lower priority.

    You have to change the chip :-)

    I can't check whether I can replicate your problem. But if a program copies
    first the file and then plays it, it certainly is intentional: no program
    does something of its own volition. An human has programmed it to do that.

    Don't ask me why.
