Sorry to be so late in my reply. I just have -or- had at the time, the openSuSE 11.4 M6 DVD download. The little gear with the green arrow down in the bottom right hand corner tells me now that I have 48 updates. -But- every time I click on it, get the Kpackagekit window listing the updates, have them all checked and then click on apply … it fails with …
… nothing provides libxml2.so.2(LIBXML2_2.4.30)
The first message I presented shows what I have loaded. I’m not sure what it is looking for so I posted the first message in hopes that someone else has had and corrected the problem. These are the repositories that I have been “playing” with so far. And so far none have helped. It seems to me that IF the system is going to present information that there are updates available, if should be able to do it. -But- what do I know??
I do not think that you will really need/want to have the repositories
3 | apparmor ,
5 | download.opensuse.org-filesystems | openSUSE BuildService - filesystems ,
7 | download.opensuse.org-php | openSUSE BuildService - PHP
and 14 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.4-Source really enabled.
And instead of
2 | Updates-for-openSUSE-11.4-11.4-1.35 | Updates for openSUSE 11.4 11.4-1.35,
12 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.4-Non-Oss and
13 | repo-oss | openSUSE-11.4-Oss | Yes | Yes I have subscribed to factory-tested (see link above)
[to profit from the automatic testing of openQA.opensuse.org ].
And I have made a “switch installed packages to the ones from this repository” to factory-tested and than to packman with choosing allways the “do not install”-option (see II.) if conflicts transpired…
to the special case: libxml2.so.2
Probably there are just some packages newer that the needed dependencies so you may just keep the old versions of both so long (it ist factory not even factory-tested so by definition not jet stable …).
Is after choosing “[x] upgrate all” (instead of "Only upgrade patches) in Yast Software Manager something shown like
There are some conflicts on the transaction that must be solved manually. nothing provides libxml2.so.2(LIBXML2_2.4.30) needed by depending package
[x] do not install depending package
] break depending package by ignoring some of its dependencies.
In such a case I always choose the first option - and so in most cases just let the depending package stay in the according version to the dependency/delivering package.
Have a lot of fun in testing!
I am NOT complaining about your responses and I am NOT trying to be a smart ass. -But- please re-read my first response cause either you didn’t read it right -or- I didn’t tell it right. I do understand how to use Yast and accept and refuse suggestions on dependencies. That is NOT the problem. Unless your version of openSuSE 11.4 M6 is totally different from mine… you should see and icon on the Taskbar -or- Panel as I see it also called. Anyway the line along the bottom that has actions and information. Over on the Right Hand side there is an Icon, a grey Gear Wheel with a Green Curved to the Right Arrow on it. IF you hover your cursor over it, it will present a message stating how many updates you have. In my case it has increased to 40.
Now then, DO NOT GO INTO YAST. Instead, click on the new icon (cause it wasn't there in 11.3). You will be presented with a window like the following:
Anywho, Even IF only one item is checked … 1 item … and Apply, at the Bottom, on the Right is clicked upon, it will startup and you will see a progress bar. The it fails constantly with the message about the missing libxml2.so.2 which as far as I can tell IS loaded / installed on my system. Since this is only a Milestone release I presumed that there might be another Update somewhere that was missed and IF I presented the question here I might get an answer.
Once again, I am NOT mad -or- complaining about your responses. Sometimes even I read more into one of these than was meant or said. A lot depends on our mood when we read things.
As some of or fellow enthusiasts say,
11.4 is the first version of openSUSE that uses KPackageKit for updates in this way. And since we’re still in the milestone stage, expect some glitches. I have been using the updater and not experiencing the same problem you’re having.
Just curious, have you confirmed that every package in that list has a dependency problem?
I would try ‘zypper up’ from a terminal and that may provide more info about your dependency problem.
Thanks to Martin. Yep, I am talking about KDE updater applet -only- cause of the new icon and format I didn’t realize that’s what it was. I needed someone from the GNOME world to set me straight.
pilotgi, Yes. Everyone that I have tried with this update manager has complained about libxml2.so.2 missing. I have “Reset” the X’s and then tried groups and individual.
Back to Martin, The apparmor was to see if there was a later version that would fix my problem with Samba, smb and nmb. Had to disable apparmor altogether in order to get smb and nmb running. The others were with hopes of satisfying the lib requirements for this update problem. Shotgunning:shame:
In reading over the - Nothing provides “libc.so.6” - message it just points out further that we have a minor Library problem which I hope is ironed out by RC1.
Thanks to all for the comments,
