Thread: Can't install apps locally opensuse 11.1

    Default Can't install apps locally opensuse 11.1


    Help! Install attempts from rpms on local harddisk fail. Yast or
    command line both return <file> not found on medium. :-( I've checked
    folder permissions, tried from root login, creating a local repo, etc.
    Something is definitely broken. SOS - I've upgraded and can't install
    my accounting packages.

    * blinddog,

    in a console, become root and search for the file. Like

    su
    cd /path/to/rpm
    ll

    and please post the output of ll

    I receive the following:

    bigdog:/home/blinddog/Downloads # ||
    -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `||'


    What is the double pipe trying to find?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    * blinddog,

    it is a lower case "LL", not pipes.

    * blinddog,

    that looks fine, I thiought it might be a rights or file ownership issue.

    So, on a console, try

    su
    rpm -Uvh /path/to/nameof.rpm

    Any errors?
    I cannot see why it should throw a "file not found" if the file name is correct.

    Uwe
