    Default can't install kernel-desktop-3.1.9-1.4.1.x86_64 in opensuse 12.1

    Good day eveyone:

    Long story short, after running "zypper update"command, there's a particular update called kernel-desktop-3.1.9-1.4.1.x86_64 which for some strange reason won't install. All other updates install without hiccups, but this particular one has the following output:

    Retrieving: kernel-desktop-3.1.9-1.4.1.x86_64.rpm [done (731.3 KiB/s)]

    History:
    - kernel-desktop-3.1.9-1.4.1.x86_64.rpm has wrong checksum
    After typing yes for several times, it still gives the same result.

    Anyone having the same issues?

    Thanks in advance for any help provided.

    if it says " wrong checksum" or "Expected
    34158356c78aa4fd42d74d4aea850d8f15a6bd0d5f5e765e703ff211eca9ad66, found
    fd5a5fee9eca8a89317d3cce413a486c3d717e6f31f1aa638f386d1ea3d9440b"

    do NOT type yes!! it is obvious (to me, why not you?) that something is
    wrong with that package.....and, you therefore do NOT want it in your
    system..

    > Anyone having the same issues?


    no,i have not had that....it is probably that you were connected to a
    mirror in the midst of its update...those things should not happen, but
    sometimes they do....two things you can do:

    1. just try again after a few hours....maybe tomorrow..

    anyway, you may not actually want to be in a big hurry for that new
    kernel anyway, some folks are having problems with it....

    2. directly address a mirror near you from this page:
    http://mirrors.opensuse.org/

    if you don't fully understand how to do that i highly suggest you follow
    1. above....and, if you have problems with the update in 24 hours come
    back...

    [and, if you are able to update and find your system broken come back so
    i can say: told you so! or if it runs more wonderful than ever, come
    back so i can say: congratulations!]

    Thanks for the reply DenverD.

    The reason I wanted to install this update was because it was featured as a security update.
    Anyhow, I really can't take the idea of "broken updates" that can potentially harm your system coming from the guys who developed the OS. It's just unconceivable.

    wait a second, you don't understand: you are not dealing with 30,000
    programmers in an air conditioned office, nor with a giant corporation
    who owns internet servers all of the planet all hooked to
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.1/

    nope, by far the largest majority of the servers hold and delivering the
    software to you "from openSUSE" are owned by universities all over the
    world (look at http://mirrors.opensuse.org/)

    each one of those is a _machine_ built by mankind...which means that at
    any second one might get hit by lightening and loss bits and bytes!! the
    instant that happens the checksum of that damaged software will NOT
    match the master and you, the System Administrator is advised of that..

    so, no problem....in fact, you have found out that (fortunately even
    when told the software is bad) the system refused to install it even if
    told to..

    i can tell you this: i've been using linux since about '98 and
    exclusively since about 2002--and i can assure you that the biggest
    threat to *my* system is not some "broken updates" from a rogue mirror
    in BadLand....nope the biggest threat to *my* machine is currently typing.

    now, if you wanna try again...go ahead...if you get the same or similar
    problem you can pick a mirror close to you and use YaST Software
    Repositories to designate the exact address to it (rather than what is
    currently listed <http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.1/> which is
    another machine which accepts your update request and looks around the
    earth and picks a machine to redirect you to...that machine having been
    recently checked that it was operating normally and its repos were
    checked clean...

    and, then the guy with the mop bucket went by and . . .

    let us know how you get on..

    Sorry for my ignorance then. I always thought of OpenSuSE as a huge, centralized company like Microsoft or Google, etc.

    so, no problem....in fact, you have found out that (fortunately even

    told to..
    Well, to tell you the truth, I'm impressed with the robustness of this OS, because If I was running a Microsoft OS and did the above mentioned, I would've being screwed long ago. Won't do it next time, that's for sure.

    Can't agree more on this one.

    I might just wait until a stable release and then apply the update properly.
    Anyhow, the reason I was so keen on this kernel update was because I still hold a small ray of hope that it might fix the issue I've being having with the system hanging out whenever I use Firefox or Konqueror on crappy Intel graphics.

    Just install a good copy. Ie, one that verifies.

    Hi guys:

    Just to update you all, I've being using the new kernel for the last few days without any hiccups so far.
    As DenverD stated before, once the the update was officially available on all OpenSuSE mirrors, I was able to download and install it.

    Thanks for the help guys, and sorry for the balls-ache.
