      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Bad Signatures for Firefox 1.5xxxx

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang

 

I have been away from Linux way too long, a change in jobs, divorce (which really sucks), ssssssllllllooooowwwww dialup (26.6-24kbps), well now I have DSL - YES!

 

Okay I used the typical easy way to do updates (Mandriva Control center), seems that Firefox 1.5XXXX has signature issues and refuses to install. I have changed mirrors and such and keep getting the same...

 

Looks to me like I am going to have to do a manual delete of the downloaded files. Where does Mandriva store the downloaded files? Like I said I've been away for a while...back to noobie state. Sorry for the stupid question.

 

Thanks

 

CJC

/var/cache/urpmi/rpms ? not 100 % sure but somewhere there they should be

 

had no signature problems with the ff 1.5 update though, maybe the mirrors were not in sync at the time ?

If an rpm download is interrupted it will be stored in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms as lavaeolus said.

 

To clean the cached rpms you can use:

urpmi --clean

Thanks Paul...snif , someone remembers me.... :paul:

 

Glad to be back mate! I think, M2006 is being unusually weird.

 

Performed: urpmi --clean

 

uprmi now locked...no problem, log out / reboot hey I'm a noob now! And I use Windows :rolleyes:

 

Back into Mandriva Control Center... pick a site any site for updates etc. Darned if none of them want to work...can't connect, configuration is wrong or other lame excuse... :wall:

 

Heck I am connected...how do they think I'm posting this? Telepathy? :annoyed:

 

Won't be a loss if I need to run the M2006 DVD and reinstall (nice having DSL!!!!! :D )

 

Suggestions? :lol2:
