Thread: zypper libzypp problem?

    Default zypper libzypp problem?

    I've been trying to install 13.2 64bit off the downloaded DVD. After i have the install complete and the network configured, i do a zypper patch to get updates. This all seems to work properly. I then attempt to add Google Chrome repo for 64bit to 13.2 repository and then drop to terminal and do zypper install google-chrome-stable. This worked fine on my laptop but for some reason it seems to break on my desktop. This is the result:

    Code:
    terrigan@linux-b14e:~> sudo zypper install google-chrome-stable
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    The following 2 NEW packages are going to be installed:
      google-chrome-stable lsb 
    
    2 new packages to install.
    Overall download size: 57.9 MiB. Already cached: 0 B  After the operation, additional 172.9 MiB will be used.
    Continue? [y/n/? shows all options] (y): 
    Retrieving package lsb-4.0-26.1.2.x86_64                                                                                                                                                                     (1/2),     0 B (    0 B unpacked)
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range'
      what():  basic_string::substr
    This seems to occur for anything that i attempt to install afterward. Tried to install nano and got the same
    Code:
    std::out_of_range
    . This seems to be a problem that got fixed in a newer version of libzypp, just don't know how to get it.

    Which version of libzypp do you have?
    [code]rpm -q libzypp[/QUOTE]

    There was a similar problem in 13.2 Beta or RC1, but that should be fixed in the final release.
    It was actually a problem with some translations, so try to run zypper this way:
    Code:
    sudo LANG=C zypper up
    But if it worked at first, that's probably not your issue. And the output you posted is in english anyway.

    I would try to remove the libzypp cache:
    Code:
    sudo rm -r /var/cache/zypp
    Maybe that helps?

    Yep, removing the cache did the trick! Thanks a bunch.

    Ok, I just wanted to be sure that you indeed have the version included in the final release. That is it, yes.

    Great!
