    Please post the output of this:

    Code:
    su -
    zypper lr --details
    and make sure it is inside a code tags section — the '#' button in the
    forum editor.

    Default Re: Code converter not found (UTF-8 to UTF-16)

    Have you found a repo you don't like yet???

    I can not point to an obvious problem repo (there are potentially many) but having that many active repos is bound to cause problems like you are seeing. Essentially one or more of them are supplying versions of software that don't match the installed versions. You must take specail care with personal repos you don't know what packages some one may have been experimenting with.

    Also the more repos you have active the slower updates.

    The recommended procedure for adding packages outside the disto's is to add the package but disable or remove the repo. Also never use zypper dup to update unless you are running tumbleweed. Always use zypper up

    Promise you that the problem lies in one of those repos. We see it again and again here. You have managed to mix version of some library.

    Hi
    I think the most I've seen is 139 repositories... With repo #3, why Factory? Also I see you have my testing repo, what packages are you pulling from there?

    I've I started getting this error following a system crash that occured while I was updating software. (I had to hit the reset button on the PC).

    I then tried zypper update amd got a screed of messages starting.

    Code:
    Installation of dracut-037-17.27.1 failed:
    Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: rpmdb: Requirename page 10 is on free list with type 7

    error: error(-30974) getting "libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)" records from Requirename index
    Running:

    rpmdb --rebuilddb
    zypper ref
    zypper up

    Seems to have fixed both problems.
