Error Message When Doing Update in Mandriva


I get an error message when I try to update my system. I recently modified my kernel by integrating a Webcam driver (I think that's what I did!), could that be it? Here's the message I get. If anybody knows what it could be, I'd appreciate any help you can offer. It's probably nothing, I should probably simply ignore the warning, but just thought I'd check to make sure beforehand.

By the way, it's all in French, so I've translated the appropriate parts.

Thanks.

Code:

OK, this generally means that the repo's md5 list is not current or some of the file has been lost during downloading.

It's not a good idea to install it Unless you know what you are doing.

There is a chance it may break your system.

To fix, update your repo database.

urpmi.update (name of repo here) or -a for all.

or go into drakrmp, in Start, System, configuration, configure your computer, software management. Select "look at installable software and install packages".

Once it loads, select "file, update media", here you can select the repos to update.

hope that helps., Glenn

I tried the other bit, I had to translate to French to try and guess what it corresponds to. One option doesn't allow me to change anything becaues I can only get into it as a normal user ("Navigate among available packages"), the other "Install, Remove & Update Software" gives me the message "Impossible to launch the unrecognized/unknown program called 'install' ". The other thing I don't know how to do is a general update using the GUI. It asks me to select individual programs from different headings, which would take hours to do.

If I have that problem, I just do
Code:
#rpm -Uvh /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/*.rpm

I too, would answer yes to this question, but I would not get into the habit of doing so.

gtk is a tool kit for gnu, fb is a framebuffer.

It won hurt to try.

The gui.... go to a terminal or Konsole and type su

Type in the root password and then type in drakrpm.

That should get you to the admin of the repos.

If you don't want to select the packages individually, use

urpmi libgtk-linux-fb-2.0_0-2.4.14-6mdk.i586.rpm --no-verify-rpm --no-md5sum

--no-md5sum disable MD5SUM file checking.
--no-verify-rpm disables verify rpm signature before installation

Then use urpmi --auto-select --auto to get the rest.

Regards, Glenn

reddazz, GlennsPref,

Thanks for the advice. the "rpm -Uvh /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/*.rpm" command worked. I then did the "urpmi --auto-select" thing and was able to install 192 packages (or update them).

Many thanks.

That's great news.

Beware that it is not recommended to install packages when the check fails.

Though it has happend to me, quite a few times, I am still nervous while doing so.

Cheers, Glenn
