javabiz Posted January 7, 2004 Report Share Posted January 7, 2004 (edited) New to this forum. Problem is with rpm updates. A couple of questions. 1. I have downloaded and installed Mdk 9.2 and everything seems to be working fine. I'm using the kde gui and trying to update with rpmdrake under MCC. Yesterday I was able to donwload some updates but not all of Security files and today I got two or three bug fixes downloaded. I seem to have a problem with some of the keys not matching and it asks me if I want to install anyway and I say No. I've also had alot of problems with different sites locking on the downloads. 2. Some how rpmdrake has lost a hdlist file for the updates and now everytime I try it I get the message--"The list of updates is void. This means that either there is no available update for the packages on your computer (which I know is wrong) or you already installed all of them (which is also wrong). I know the files I need to update because I wrote them down from a previous download (about 20 files). My second question is how do I get my outstanding update list back into the loop and how do I get rid of the key errors in 1 above. When I run the command " urpmi.update -a" I get "no list file [/var/lib/urpmi/list.Updates for Mandrake Linux 9.2 (ftp1u)] exists" after running from console "urpmi.update -a -c -f --no-md5sum --wget" I get the same thing! How do I get my file called list.Updates back in the path /var/lib/urpmi/ and how did it disappear in the first place. Without it, rpmdrake and the two commands listed think that there's nothing to update. Arguments to the urpmi command above: Note: When the original problem occurred I was using rpmdrake in the gui and not the command line which utilizes the below args. where -a = all media -c = clear header cache -f = force --no-md5sum = ignore md5sum files on local machine and mirror, just sync them --wget = use wget protocol (far more robust than curl) Edited January 8, 2004 by javabiz Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
