Problems with Repositories on Mandriva 10


When I try to add applications with Software-Management, I quite often get a message that a dependency is not at that mirror. I get error messages after using Easy-Urpmi as well.

Is this common with Mandriva 10. I had NO problems with Mandriva 08 until they stopped supporting updates and then I had problems with application downloads.

Thanks in advance!

Your problems are with PLF and they are not official repos. I use them too, but you need to be careful.

What happens if you remove the PLF repos, and you install from the regular repos?

Have you tried to install the missing package openssl mentioned in the error output?

I have

I have read what dependency hell is. Now I know what it feels like.

Apparently the packages are not available from official repos.

They sure are. I just looked, VLC, mplayer and even the pre-req is there.

Some how, I think the urpmi data base on your system is hosed. There are ways to clean things up, you may find the answers on mandrivausers.org. There are some help documents there.

You can try to update your repos, in a konsole as root try 'urpmi.update -a' ( without the quotes ) and give it another try.

Smile I'm glad to know that my data base is "hosed". My data base is a real "hoser'

It has been problematic. How did you find out what files the Repo offers so I can check myself and don't have to bitch about it on a forum?

There are two ways. The first, as root, open a konsole. Here is what I see when I looked for vlc.

Quote:
urpmi vlc
To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed:
Package Version Release Arch
(medium "Main")
lib64xcb-keysyms1 0.3.6 1mdv2010.1 x86_64
(medium "Main32")
fonts-ttf-bitstream-vera 1.10 9mdv2010.1 noarch
(medium "Contrib")
lib64dvbpsi5 0.1.6 4mdv2010.0 x86_64
lib64ebml0 0.7.8 3mdv2010.0 x86_64
lib64matroska0 0.8.1 2mdv2010.0 x86_64
(medium "PLF Free")
lib64vlc2 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64
vlc 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64
vlc-plugin-a52 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64 (suggested)
vlc-plugin-ogg 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64 (suggested)
vlc-plugin-pulse 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64 (suggested)
vlc-plugin-theora 1.0.6 2plf2010.1 x86_64 (suggested)
29MB of additional disk space will be used.
6.2MB of packages will be retrieved.
Proceed with the installation of the 11 packages? (Y/n)
This simply bypasses the gui. You can see my system is a 64 bit system. If I agree with a 'y', then the packages including the dependencies would be downloaded, and installed. It is faster than using the gui. The same packages should be available for 32 bit systems, if that is what you are running.

And from the MCC-->Install-Remove-Software here is the dependent package your system is calling for. See the attached.

If you can not see these files, as I have shown, then something is wrong with your system.

I ran commands to clear out and re-install the Mirrors

I had similar problems with Mandriva 08 after I reinstalled It. That's why I have 10 installed now. I think it is the mirrors. Applications that should be available either are not or dependency problems are indicated.

I love Mandriva but I have major issues getting the files to copy correctly during install. I'm going to leave Mandriva as a working project. Totem works for hell and it's built in to Nautilus so it' a major problem. VLC won't work like it should either. It usually won't close with out being forced.K3b is giving me dependency issues. Should I re-install in your opinion?

Quote:
[kbs@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost kbs]# urpmi vlc
Package vlc-1.0.4-1mdv2010.0.i586 is already installed
[root@localhost kbs]# urpmi k3b
A requested package cannot be installed:
k3b-1.70.0-0.beta1.3.4mdv2010.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied libpolkit-qt-gui.so.0)
Continue installation anyway? (Y/n)

Thanks for the info!

No, I don't think you should re-install. That is a windbloze approach.

Give me some time, ( a day or so. ) I know there are was of fixing hosed up data bases.

Did you run the command I suggested above?

I will post back.

To rebuild the rpm data base, as root user, run this command.

'rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* && rpm --rebuilddb' ( without the quotes ).

This will delete the old rpm data base, and build a new one based on the installed packages on your system.
Then give installing, say VLC a try. Let me know how it goes.

For the record, I have had some good results treating it like Windows.

I ran two commands I got from a Mandriva Page which gave me the shell messages about K3b afterwards because I already have VLC installed. I have not run the command that you recently left to rebuild so I will do that and see what happens. This is what I get now.
Thanks for your help!

Just so you know, a locked data base indicates the data base is in use, it only allows one application at a time to access it.
