want online update

Hi.
I would do an online update to my opensuse 12.3 system.

It would obviously remove udev, but now it has tried to do since hours.

What could be the reason ?.

Screendump here.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17884107/udev.jpg

Also I have recognized, that when I would run yast, I get info to logout/login.

I did that, but couldn’t see what happened.

Please help me, thanks

so, to run in all security patches/updates you just open YaST and
click on Online Update…and accept what is offered (if you want it all)

or, in a root terminal run


zypper patch

It would obviously remove udev, but now it has tried to do since hours.

What could be the reason ?

why would it do that? no idea.

Screendump here.

http://tinyurl.com/d3ygc2g

your “screendump” is

“Error (404) We can’t find the page you’re looking for.”

Also I have recognized, that when I would run yast, I get info to
logout/login.

i have no idea what you are saying…unless it is that you have
logged into the desktop environment as root…is that what you did?

for more assistance, please show us the terminal output and input,
as well as the beginning prompt and exit prompt, from


zypper lr -d

copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions

It is realy not obvious to me. And as udev is rather essential to the functioing of your system, you better do not remove it.

BTW am NON-Technical still finding my way around…

zypper patch this installs all the available needed patches.

zypper up this updates all packages (or specified package) with newer versions, if possible.

zypper inr this will install any newly added packages recommended by already installed packages.

Self now finds using use zypper easier also this way self makes fewer mistakes, fixing clearer and safer when uninstalling my mistakes, than did with YaST {: -O

Yes, do provide the results from as requested:

zypper lr -d

I do not recognize this sentence.
Are you using a machine translator to write here?

so, who are you aalested? and why are you posting in this thread?
(looks like you joined this forum today, on May 8, 2013?

i ask because this thread began by someone named Erik who joined the
forum in 2008 and asked for help in this thread five days ago!!

I did not say that to you, I said that to Erik. Who are you?

Please start a new thread with your problem, and leave this one to Erik.

You are not the OP. The output was asked of Erik, not of you.

Besides that, the text is illegible. Please use code tags for printouts
and commands. Advanced editor, ‘#’ button.

Please don’t do that, it makes things very confusing. You should ask the
new one to be removed.

Ok, you need to repost the output of “zypper lr -d” inside code tags.

first i’d suggest that you have a mix of repos which is probably the
cause of your problems…so, i strongly suggest you begin to follow
the excellent advice found in the paragraph beginning with
“IMPORTANT!” in this post http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu

you can use YaST > Software Repositories to disable and cease
automatic refreshing of all but the magic five repos…

then, each and every time you install anything with a 1-Click button
go back into YaST and disable/cease refresh of any new repos added by
the 1-click

just doing that may be all you need to do…but, it might be
necessary to also clean up the rpm database and run ‘up’ or
‘dup’…so, tell us how it goes after disabling all of those
potentially conflicting repos.

I have learned from this, and will not do it again.

I have excused myself. What more do you think I need ?

I found out what the five are, and I’ll disable the others, and see what happens

Ok, you have too many repositories, and some are conflicting. The
obvious ones are packman vs vlc: choose one or the other, not both.

Repos 1 and 11: 1 is superfluous.

The rest it is difficult to say. You are attempting to do a “zypper
patch”, aka online update, where some packages that you have installed
from one of those extra repos conflict with what the patch would do - so
you have to decide what you want, those of the repo or those of the
update repo.

It is easier to see where each comes from if you use the yast online
update module. Or try verbose or info output.

You initially posted a photo, but that link is broken, as I said
earlier, so I can’t comment on that action. I see nothing about udev in
the zypper patch output.

Another question: do you have some reason to have enabled the debug and
source repos? It is not typical.

Nothing.

I have removed the two aalested posts from this thread, so you may want to add anew the info you provided there, but I have the idea you already did that.

The account will also be removed.

Thank you very much Henk :wink:
