    Default Failure to install Win4Lin Pro.

    My OS11.4 KDE 64 bit
    I'm trying to install Win4LinPro and I get this error message.

    "An internal system error has occurred.
    A problem that we were not expecting has occurred.
    Please report this bug with the error description.
    Details:
    [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.vZjMM9]
    Repository already exists".

    When I click OK the install shuts down.

    I don't know what to do.

    Thanks,
    Ron

    close yast (if not already done).
    open a terminal and type
    Code:
    su -
    zypper rr PK_TMP_DIR
    this removes the temporary repository which is a leftover from something and
    was not removed automatically
    after that finishes try your install again.

    that the software to solve all problems is to be released real soon now
    is a corner stone of the marketing strategy of most things with "Win" in
    its name..

    its first big splash was a midnight in 1995, when the answer to all the
    computer user prayers was released as Win95..

    did you overlook the ;-)

    Well, actually I did see that. But I simply didn't get the sarcasm, I guess I needed to stand up as it went over my head. .
    Thanks for the answer.
