Thread: IcedTea stops update - What next?

  1. #1

    Default IcedTea stops update - What next?

    Have three TW updating, no. 1 already crashed (reinstalling from scratch currently), because icedtea-web-1.7.1.6.1 stopped the install of updates. Tried to stop and restart update, but the removal of the old version of icedtea failed, sometinh with ".....lock device not available". After reboot the machine hung at starting DBus. So I decided to do a fresh install.

    Second machine is hanging at the same step, what next?

    Third machine will reach the same point soon.

    Biggest TW update disaster here ever.
    Kind regards

    Icedtea is the open source Java code interpreter

    Hi
    Use rpm or zypper to uninstall it and see how it goes.

    If I interrupt zypper (CTRL+C) it exits gracefully. When trying to resume zypper shows the remaining updates, I confirm installation with "y", zypper finds the updates cached, checks for conflicts and wants to remove the old version of icedtea andd throws an error that some zypper...lock blabla as some device is not available. At this point I did a reboot with the first machine, which never came back after reboot (and is currently dead after a new installation of TW, as I reach the login but apparently at that stage the graphics card dies away).

    Big mess here. I'm a little tired...
    Kind regards

    Hi
    So use some additional verbosity and force;

    Code:
    zypper -vvv rm -f icedtea-web
