For some time now both “Yast - Online Update” and “Yast - Software Management” behave strangely. Neither do updates seem to be installed, nor are new packages installed that I select. In both cases something seems to be downloaded, yet at the end all that is shown is “Setting up linker cache - Finishing SuSEconfig - Done.” There used to be more lines such as “running xyz.config”.
What is wrong here? How can it be fixed?
In your reply please be explicit since I do not have deep knowledge of Linux.
I expect there will be more useful replies that mine – just passing – but perhaps the support for 10.1 has finished. The Suse 10.1 support cycle ran for 2 years. I can’t accurately remember but it was released circa mid 2005. So the support should cease in mid 07?
Have you considered installing openSUSE 10.3 0r 11.0?
Oh woe is me!!!
I attached a download of 11.0 yesterday 4pm. Got up at 4am to install my new version before work. And found an iso 6.3 Gb large – my downloader had malfunctioned!!! And that was my second attempt!!! I had previously downloaded an advance copy and went to instal that — Bad checksum!!!
If we had some decent emoticons I’d tell you how I really feel!
