what method/tool did you use to install chrome [yast, zypper,
compile, what]? did you experience any difficulties, errors, start-overs?

please state your operating system and version, as well as your
desktop environment and version…

and, having reviewed the ‘bug’ at i’d have to
suspect you also have a corrupted cache…the bug includes possible
remedies (see comment 3) and let us know how you get on…

openSUSE®, the “German Engineered Automobile” of operating systems!

I have used zypper for installing chrome .After installing chrome , I was trying to install the dependent packages for installing oracle 11g database . The packages are listed below.


The packages make, libgcc, compat-libstdc++ went fine.While i tried to install libaio package i faced this issue. This might not be an issue with chrome package. I hope.

OS Version: Open Suse 12.2
I have Dell inspiron 1525 laptop with 4GB Ram and Core 2 Duo intel processor.

Please help me to proceed with next steps. Thanks for the guidance.

Thanks and Regards,

what was the result of following the remedy (to a corrupted cache)
outlined in the referenced bug report?


It guides us to use the below commands

zypper clean -m   zypper refresh

I have used them but no use. Getting same problem .

Here is the replies from the bug.

@Andrey: Looks like one of the cache files is broken. Please try to rebuild them:    zypper clean -m   zypper refresh  Then try some command, e.g. 'zypper list-patches'. If it still does not work, send your /var/log/zypper.log.

Thank you for your attention. I'm sorry, but it was my fault. Not bug, but jast broken RAM in my new PC.  So: Not a bug. Close, plz!
