    Default Update broke NSS

    Hi all,

    This morning I received a nss-mdns update (and some more) and now all applications using certs don’t work.

    Mostly I get nss_error=-8023 and Error initializing NSS with a persistent database

    I tried to search the web but the only browser I have currently is the one in my phone and I am not getting many useful hit.

    Anyone else having problems?

    What version is your nss-mdns?

    Checked on one of my systems, it hasn't been updated... is from the OSS and is version 0.10-68.3

    Run the following
    Code:
    zypper info nss-mdns
    TSU

    Hello again,

    I temporarily removed the Mozilla update repository

    This is what I did. The problem was even bigger then my first post. When I rebooted, x didn't start. Got a log file of NSS errors and files that couldn't be written even when rights were set ok.

    I ended up with zypper re-installing all installed packages. Mozilla-NSS was trippin over java 1.8 according to zypper. So I choose the option to remove java and install mozilla-nss and then my system worked perfectly again. Sorry for not posting the logs and stuff, but this was my work laptop and I am a self-employed contractor. So I couldn't really wait for a solution. I also bought a second SSD disk for this work laptop and it now contains an image from my working Suse installation on the other SSD disk. But with less updates

    So now I can always go back a bit to a working system.
