Please run the command as root (in a shell -- use the "su" command)
Do things change if you log in directly as root or try 'su -' ??

Sorry man, weekend blur....try this:
ls /var/lib/rpm/

then remove all files with __
rm __*

You may see files named __db.001 2 and 3

Then rebuild your rpm db with:
rpm --rebuilddb

that may take a while to run.

Unhappy Again Another Problem

Hi all, I didn't read the whole thread but I hope this was not asked yet...

I've just installed Fedora Core 1 and after installing I started up2date... this took a few hours, while updating I did some other things like editing the fstab @ try to install kde 3.2 ;-)
when it was finished I realized, that I could not read any "normal" text anymore, the clock is not shown any more, and the windows have no names... even in the "explorer" the folders have no names... this is very bad :-/ I hope someone can help me.. the things i can see after all: the symbols at the bottom of the gui ;-) (sorry I'm german and don't know how to express myself ;-) )the windows themselves, e.g. in mozilla I can see everything exept the name of the window(which should be in the middle of the top somewhere)

here is a screenshot (It was very hard to upload it, but i got it ;-)

thank you for ur time!

I don't think this is up2date, maybe a kde problem.

Up2date RH AS 2.1 Fails

Background: RH AS 2.1

Have run it before without incident.
Servers are located in a DMZ
Networking is called to open ports
"Ports have been opened"


run up2date -l
or up2date -iv
and get nothing back

/var/logs/up2date:

Tue Apr 20 09:00:12 2004] up2date new up2date run started
[Tue Apr 20 09:00:12 2004] up2date Opening rpmdb in /var/lib/rpm/ with option 0
[Tue Apr 20 09:00:12 2004] up2date updating login info
[Tue Apr 20 09:00:12 2004] up2date Opening rpmdb in /var/lib/rpm/ with option 0
[Tue Apr 20 09:00:12 2004] up2date logging into up2date server
[Tue Apr 20 09:02:49 2004] up2date Error communicating with server. The message
was:
Connection aborted by the user
[Tue Apr 20 09:03:21 2004] up2date A socket error occurred: (110, 'Connection ti

Any ideas?

I have gave up, so my Red Hat installation computer went to Specialist. He said this was cause by serial port so disenable at BIOS before doing Up2date. Finally he does fix for me and does update all files for me include latest kernel. I suggest try disenable serial port at BIOS jof which Linux block or crash by this serial port. Give shot try this

problem registering username!!!!!

I have re-installed the system and upgraded the kernel - now I cannot use up2date.
So I try to follow the instructions from RHN FAQ on the subject - remove the existing profile and then run up2date etc. However, the RH Update Agent gets stuck on the privacey agreement - if I ignore this, and continue with the rest of the form, I can go all the way through to the end where I get an error message: "problem registering username".

There arn't many possible problems with a username... illegal characters, already used etc. However, this is MY username from the prev. register! What is wrong here?

Anyway, guessing a bug involving existing usernames, I try just to resgister as a different user... same problem, even when I try really weird username like xywtle44sx1. Still no idea.

Now I suspect that there is a problem with the fact that the privacy statement didn't come up, or related. Anyone?

I think that the os is no longer supported? You can install packages from it or manage your system, but there are no new updates coming out lately. I see there are 9.0.93 Beta updates.

You can create a username from the website.

You're right, RH no longer supports RH9 (though I heard there is another distributor supporting it, but I forget which.) So, no more upgrades... a bit of a bummer since I chose RH because of its popularity and support. My other choice was SuSE, which looks like it would have been better in retrospect. boo hoo.

Whaever, having created a new account, I cannot register my system for it, this means no automated upgrade for my system. Same message: "error registering user name". This time I tried via the "use existing account" path. There isn't anything in the FAQ about this.

Mine is still registered, and I can manage it from rhn. It's 7.3 and I have an entitlement. It's not much use without updates. Maybe there will be some from time to time.. I doubt it.

Thumbs up

Okay Everybody, now that I finally got up2date working and did an update (RH8), grub now has 2 kernels to boot Linux. Is there anything special I need to do to just have the new kernel in grub? Thanks for all the helpful posts everybody!!!!
