urpmi --auto-select


Hey guys - panic attack!!!!


I ran this urpmi --auto-select update for 2006 Mandriva and it was going well but it seems like its hung up installing "acpi-0.07-6mdk.i586.rpm from /var/cache/urpmi/rpms", I pressed the [ENTER] key on my keyboard in hopes of maiking it go but all it did was go down one line and it just sits there.

It's been there for the last 20 minutes or so, what do I do?

I tried that and it brought me back to "root".

And then I get a urpmi database locked.

Reboot and try again. The server probably timed out or there was a complication in the install of the RPM.

Hey, I rebooted amd had to mess around with my graphics, but Mandriva 2006 is beautiful. I really like it.....and update was worth it. I like it....

Now I must figure out the Nvidia drivers issue.

Thanks for getting me up to desktop....

No prob, the way I see it is if you have a problem, reboot. it will probably fix whatever was broken.

Just FYI, but you don't need to reboot. When you use URPMI, it creates lock files on the database for obvious reasons. If you exit prematurely, for whatever reason, those lock files remain in place. Just delete them. You'll find both of them in /etc/urpmi/

since it's located outside your user's home directory, you will most likely need to be root when deleting those lockfiles.
