Thread: YaST2 Warning dialog box

  1. #1

    Default YaST2 Warning dialog box

    Well, this is an interesting one that occurred when I was trying to install Heimdall a week or so ago. I'm not sure exactly what I did but it was then that I first started seeing this warming error message, and I don't know what to do about it.

    An error occurred during repository initialization.
    [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
    History:
    - [|] Repository type can't be determined.

    I'm on 13.1 KDE and I need some advice as to how to eliminate this message. Thanks!

    Go into YaST->Software Repositories and remove or disable the offending repository.
    If in doubt, please post the output of:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Well, I can't either. Could you post the complete error message you get when you call "zypper ref" f.e.?

    Some notes though:
    You have the Packman repo _twice_ (#1 and #15)! Remove one of them.

    You should also remove home:RedDwarf:fakePackman. This package doesn't contain working packages, it is just there so you can build other packages against Packman's multimedia stuff on OBS (ffmpeg and friends are not allowed there).

    home:wildnux is for Factory, not 13.1. That's where you installed heimdall from. This can cause problems, so be aware of that.
    Better remove that repo and install heimdall from one of the others. It is also contained in hardware, home:enzokiel, and home:happenpappen, which you already have in your list.

    And you also have the Update repo twice (#5 and #14). You can remove the latter one there as well.

    I guess #7. Notice the type=NONE? That's a telltale. It could not refresh the last time.

    I saw that, too, but didn't know what to do about it. I suppose that I'll remove the last one again and see if that makes any difference. I hate not knowing what I'm doing.

    Well, I did write in comment#4 that you could remove one of those 2 update repos.
    It won't really make a difference except that there's one repo less to refresh, so YaST->Software Management should start a bit faster...

    Default Re: YaST2 Warning dialog box

    Yes, I see YaST2 starting a bit faster. And, I think the system is in better order now. Thanks again for the hand holding!

    Now I've got to open a couple of new threads for additional help. See you around.
