Going through online update configuration in yast I get an error message and the process will not complete. So I manually added an update repository. After selecting online update it goes through the refresh function and then comes back and says no active update sites available.
It goes to the site and downloads the list of patches but still tells me that no update site available.
Each of those installs, did you do them with the machine attached to the internet?
If so, the script first installs from the CD/DVD and THEN automatically updates
all the packages to the latest available via the net.
So, if you then immediately try to update there are NO updates available. See??
And, my experience is that you can trust the SUSE-updater applet to signal you
when an update is available–and, just click to allow it to download and install
the patches. You just need to click, give the root password and go on to doing
other things. YaST is not even needed for updates. (NOTE: This is a CHANGE
a) the machine connects to a Wireless Router via LAN port. It is a stable broadband Internet.
b) some people said I may mis-operated. When U do the CD Installation, the Update is also doing in the same time … I can tell this is NOT TRUE. Why? Since I am only use text base console with vga=0x31a. The console screen is differet before upgrade (No SUSE Logo on the top) and after upgrade (do have SUSE Logo on the top of the screen).
c) One more for your reference :- by defaullt, after the CD installation, type “uname -a” the OS level is: 18.104.22.168-31-default. After the update, the OS level should be: 22.214.171.124-0.1-default. U can see the OS Level is different.
Um … anyway, I am downloading the UPDATE and to build a local-copy …
So, what is the messsage U got? Or, what patches U did successfully update in weekend?
What I experienced, just finish the CD Install and then proceed to Online Update. I recalled that there should be an Update for Kenerl (just after the CD Installation). However, in the Sat/Sun, after the Online Update, the system reports “No Update Available”. This is quite odd for me … (and honestly, very annoying!!! >:()
“The Update will just follow up after the CD Installation” - this is NOT my case.
I did have some bad experience before with SUSE CD Installation. I then divide the Installation into smaller batches. And do “sync;sync;reboot” after each Installation. I will only do Update after all required Patterns installed. Hence, I normally select “Configure Later” in the Repository setup. the system has no way to pull the XML.
