Summary: yast onlineupdate constantly reports: "this patch is
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Priority: P5 - None
i have a system that has been constanly upgraded from one suse linux version to
after the last upgrade from suse 10.1 to suse 10.2 the system seemd fine (apart
from some other bugs, never mind).
but for a few weeks now, yast onlineupdate reports a hugeloads of problems and
apparently never applies/installes the found upgradable packages.
i also reported this behaviour in relation to a squid bug in suse 10.2
please see comment #10:
i dont know whats going on with the suse update / yast / zypp system, but there
is definitely something wrong here....
yast onlineupdate shows me for allmost all the descriptions of the to-be
installed packages the following line at the very top of the package
"----- this patch is broken !!! -----"
and from time to time i get little windows that pop-up and complain about
screen rpm being already installed and generating errors.
well ever since i had this screen-rpm mess, i even uninstalled/removed the
screen package, and there is no screen-packages on that system any more, and
never the less yast onlineupdate still complains about screen-rpm-errors
(similar to this from the other bugreport)
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed:
2006-12-11 00:12:26 screen-4.0.2-81.i586.rpm install failed┴
rpm output: package screen-4.0.2-81 is already installed
2006-12-11 00:12:26 screen-4.0.2-81.i586.rpm install failed
oh and i can start the update-process of the found packages in yast
onlineupdate, and sometimes yast even downloads some rpm packages and
apparently tries to install something, but then brings up these crazy
screen-rpm-errors or other stuff, and in the end it never really does anything,
since the very same updates still appear on the yast onlineupdate-list the next
time i start it.
so patches dont get installed, and i reason that it has to do with this line
telling me "this patch is broken !!!"
oh, by the way, i found some sourcecode/diff for this line on the mailing-list
that posting at least contains the description:
+ descr += _( "----- this patch is broken !!! -----" );
so whats going on here?
i will upload my y2log file (with debug settings) as soon as this bug has been
created properly in the novell bugzilla system.
thanks and cheers.
