View Full Version : Running up2date
16th November 2005, 03:41 PM
I am experiencing problems when i run up2date. When I get to the part where is shows me all available packages, I just select all (as i was told to do from someone else in order to make updating thorough), the system does the testing packages / solving rpm inter-dependencies, but then i get a message that says Uresolvable chain of dependencies:
GFS-kernel-188.8.131.52-20050601.152643.FC4 requires /lib/modules/2.6.13-1.1532_FC4

I am new to linux, any suggestions?

up2date is not the preferred installation/update tool anymore. Use yum (with its GUI, yumex, if that suits you better) instead. Not that it will solve that kind of problems, but maybe it will make life easier for other people to suggest ways around your specific problem.

Have you checked this thread---> Seems like the same issue. (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=85144)

From Stanton Finley's neat Fedora Core 4 Installation notes (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html):
If you get errors with your yum update related to gnbd-kernel, GFS-kernel, cman-kernel and/or dlm-kernel do a "yum remove gnbd-kernel GFS-kernel cman-kernel dlm-kernel" as root and then a "yum update" as root and reboot into the new kernel. After you do this, if you want these files back, just do a "yum install gnbd-kernel GFS-kernel cman-kernel dlm-kernel". These are cluster related packages that you probably don't need anyway.In other words: open a terminal window, log in as root using
and then do
yum remove gnbd-kernel GFS-kernel cman-kernel dlm-kernel
This will remove the troublesome packages and you should be able to update your system properly, either using up2date again or simply issuing
yum -y updatein the same terminal window.

Thanks for such a quick turnaround. I have one other question, this might seem dumb. I was reading over the Stanton Finley installation notes, should I feel safe following these notes? Is it from a trusted source. again, i know this sounds dumb.

Thanks for such a quick turnaround. I have one other question, this might seem dumb. I was reading over the Stanton Finley installation notes, should I feel safe following these notes? Is it from a trusted source. again, i know this sounds dumb.Mr Finley is a frequent contributor to this forum and his installation notes are well regarded. You should be fine following his notes.
It is crucial you read and understand the part about mixing of software repositories (found under the "Yum" section). In essence, SF's notes will mean that you use the RPMForge repositories and not the Livna repository.
What does that mean? It means that any and all threads in this forum that suggests you to do this or that or install anything from the Livna repository are not for your machine.
If you keep that in mind, you'll be fine.
