Thread: Some Issues, please help :)

  1. #1

    Default Some Issues, please help :)

    Hi,

    Last night I have installed Opensuse 13.2 which is a new one for me. I have used linux a few times in the past, mostly Mint but really wanted to check out Opensuse as Suse was my first ever Linux (I think it was 4 or 5 lol).

    I'm really impressed and want to keep it but a couple of things have happened and wold love to be able to resolve them. I'm not great with Linux tbh but I have some understanding and am more than capable of copy / pasting into terminal

    Anyway, its coming up with quite a few updates to do (using KDE btw) now last night when clicking the review and install it brought a window up. I clicked something I think because since then when I select review and install nothing comes up so now I have the update icon and can select install but have no way of reviewing what's installing or checking the progress. Can anyone help?

    Also last night when it was updating it gave an error regarding not being able to find a repo which I think was the extras one, any ideas?

    Finally I have to dual boot this laptop with Win7 for my web design apps but when booting the system it's auto loading Suse and not giving any option to select which OS to use. Win7 is still there as can see it within Dolphin I just cannot get the option to boot to it. Any help with this?

    Many thanks and sorry for what probably seem like newbie questions ... Cheers guys

    Just a remark: in general it's preferable to ask unrelated questions in separate threads.
    But anyway...

    The update applet itself should show the progress after you click install.
    So just click on the update icon to open it again.
    You could also start Apper from the K-Menu to have a normal window. If you disable the updater applet in the system tray settings, clicking on "Review" would bring up Apper, the application, instead.
    Other ways to install updates are YaST (Online Updates, Software Management) or zypper on the command line.

    Also last night when it was updating it gave an error regarding not being able to find a repo which I think was the extras one, any ideas?
    And what error was that exactly?
    Maybe a temporary Internet/Network problem?

    There is no "extras" repo on a standard installation.

    Finally I have to dual boot this laptop with Win7 for my web design apps but when booting the system it's auto loading Suse and not giving any option to select which OS to use. Win7 is still there as can see it within Dolphin I just cannot get the option to boot to it. Any help with this?
    Delete the file /boot/grub2/grubenv to get your boot menu back. That's a "problem" with the default btrfs filesystem. Grub2 cannot write to it, so if you set an entry to be booted (via KDE's "Restart" menu e.g.), the whole menu will disappear forever because grub2 cannot reset it.

    Or is the menu shown, but a Windows entry is missing?

    Thanks for the reply Wolfi323

    Have removed the grubenv (need to check it on next boot) it was not showing any menu btw.

    My apologies for posting different subjects within the same post. Just running the update again, will post if it comes up with that error.

    Many thanks for your time, much appreciated

    Hi,

    So when doing an update it's coming up with this message 'Dependency Resolution failed' "There is no update candidate for libjpeg8-8.0.2-30.5.1.i586" ?

    Then seems to quit updating

    When bypassing that particular update it then gives "There is no update candidate for unzip-6.00-26.4.1.i586"

    Many thanks

    Can you please post your repo list?
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    You seem to have some conflict, maybe because you added additional repos and installed things from there, so some updates cannot be installed.
    (PackageKit is not very good in resolving such conflicts, in particular it just fails when it can't find a resolution instead of asking the user)

    Additionally you could also run "sudo zypper up" and post the conflict messages, or try to resolve them yourself.

    So only those two gave you problems?
    Btw, I note that those two were the 32bit versions. Is this a 32bit or 64bit system?

    Can you post the output of the following then?
    Code:
    rpm -qi  libjpeg8  unzip
    You shouldn't have any problems with those repos...

    That's quite normal, it means that higher versions of those are available in other repos, but won't be installed (Updates don't switch packages to a version from another repo by default for safety reasons).

    In your case, those are available in Packman too, which you should prefer anyway because they have more features (restricted codecs mainly).
    So I'd recommend you switch all packages to the Packman versions, by running "sudo zypper dup --from 1".
    This should also get rid of that message (although the message in itself is just for your information).

    But, did zypper want to install any packages? Did it print any conflict resolution messages?
    Or did it just say "Nothing to do", which would mean that you already installed all updates successfully...

    Yeah this is a 32-bit install. Running sudo zypper dup --from 1

    Ok. I asked because sometimes 32bit packages might get pulled in to resolve conflicts on 64bit systems.

    But as it is, all looks ok, and those two packages are the latest versions from the standard repos.
    I'm not sure why you got the error message then, but it should be resolved now. Or do you still get it?
