View Full Version : Fedora Core 6 update packages stuffed up my computer internet, yum and rpm.

I've recently installed a fresh copy of Fedora Core 6 (format and install).

AFter installation, a pop up on the top right corner of the dekstop said there were 23 packages needs to be updated.

So I just update them.

However after updating them, my internet is stuffed now - I can't connect to the Internet in any ways be it using chat programs or firefox web browsing.

More so, my yum is stuffed, keep saying things like:

Cannot open/read file repomd.xml from repository: livna

and for the YumEx:

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras

And finally, my RPM commands are stuffed. Keep giving me an error message (which I can't remember).

My Fedora Core 6 was working before I updated the 23 packages, everything was working. But the stupid updates stuffed it up now.

I'm desperate to get my computer fixed.

Please if anyone know what's wrong, give me a shout.

I haven't looked into it, but I have the same problem.

yum clean all did not do the trick.

I have exactly the same problem... Anybody can help? Thanks a lot!

Loki1950, I'm not sure if it's a server error.

I can't even connect to the Internet so how can I "try again" later?

I'm not sure but I've got a feeling the updates probably removed or changed some settings to the Fedora Core 6.

Nonetheless, thank you all for replying. I'm greatly appreciated that someone replied :) .

It's not necessary to do updates "just because they are there".

I configured yumes to DL package and changelog info so I can see what the reason for the update is. It takes longer to load, but I think it's worth it.

If it's an update to fix a broken update then it's probably needed (if I was affected by the broken update). If it's a major security fix it's probably needed. If it's just a feature release I probably don't need it (at least not right away).

I don't like the update pop-up message keeping coming up everytime I log in.

Three reasons for me to do the update:

1) It's annoying seeing the pop-up.
2) I was told updating my systems help defend my computer from Internet related attacks.
3) It's better to discover this problem early so the fedora team can fix it early.

Can someone file a bug report to the Fedora team?

I don't know how to.

Here's the 27 packages that was released for Fedora Core 6:

1) I'm not aware of the the update pop up. I don't know if it's a Gnome thing or and FC6 thing but I can see where it could be annoying (I have used Windoze and they were really annoying).
2) This is quite true, but not all updates are security related or major bug fixes. As you've found out, some of them "are" bugs. (why I dounload the changelog info). I am glad you (and others) are doing those updates so I know about the problems before they happen to me. ;)
3) see 2)...Also I only have the one PC and I can't afford for it to break. I really have no business running Fedora for that reason, but I like it. It would be nice to have another to experiment with.

You lucky bum :)

Well the Fedora Weekly News said the 27 packages had 2 security advisories, so I thought that might be good for my operating system.

. . . Apparently too good that it locked me out of the Internet . . . :(

I don't want someone hacking into my computer but not to this degree :p

----

Anyhow, to be serious, if the Fedora Team fix the problem, how will I fix the problem for my Fedora Core 6?

I can't connect to the Internet, my stupid network isn't working now and I can't use RPM commands. . . That means if the Fedora Team fix the problem and release a RPM file, I still can't fix my computer (since I can't use RPM commands).

You didn't get a kernel update did you? If yes, try booting into the old kernel and see if everything still works. Is it a laptop with wifi that broke"? With rpm broke, I don't know. You might be in for a reinstall (but don't do it just on my comment). I as going to suggest installing from the CD/DVD but that would require rpm too:/

I'm not sure if I got a kernel update.

How do I check?

I restarted the computer and there were only 2 items I could boot into:

Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798)
Other

That's it.

So I'm guessing my kernel hasn't updated yet.

Yes, there has not been another kernel released at this point.

And finally, my RPM commands are stuffed. Keep giving me an error message (which I can't remember).

My Fedora Core 6 was working before I updated the 23 packages,
I'm by far no expert, but I would say that is 3 strikes. Internet doesn't work, yum depends on internet. rpm doesn't work, yum depends on rpm. with no internet you can't DL a tarball to compile rpm from source and without rpm you can't reinstall anything from the CD/DVD.

The first thing I would do is type more /var/log/yum.log in a terminal and copy down all the packages that got updated as well as anything that may have been installed or erased. Maybe some one can advise you of what package "might" have broken your system.

Unfortunately. I think you are stuck with reinstalling, but with the list of packages, you get from the yum log perhaps you could avoid whatever broke it.

If you are in no hurry, you can wait for further assistance/suggestions (with some of the advice I've given lately, it's not a bad idea). ;)

There are something like 43 updates waiting for me (mostly KDE) but I'll wait a couple days for them. I already saw where an artsd update on FC6 (also avail for my fc5) broke the sound server but fortunately he/she found the problem.

Well, I can use the Internet on this computer but not my other computer with Fedora Core 6.

This is what my yum.log output file contains:

Just a shot in the dark here, but reboot the machine and at the grub screen (gotta be quick, so watch) type a. at the end of the kernel line (leave a space) type .autorelabel and then hit enter. After it starts booting you should shortly see something like SELinux needs to relabel your files this will take a while. (It will take a while).

I may have this not exactly correct but while you are rebooting I'll research. If you see that relabel message from selinux, then it is correct.

See if this helps. Like I said, it's just a shot.

Also, I went over the thread again and don't see any references to rpm not working (except that you say it's not working). What message or error led you to believe it's not working?

u-noneinc-s
1st November 2006, 06:24 AM
This is a perfect example of "some of the advice I've given lately". I should have told you to do setenforce 0 as root and see what happens. If things were ok then you could have done the relabel. No harm done this way, but it takes a long time to do the relabel and if it doesn't help, it's just time wasted.
Like I said, no harm done, but I "jumped the gun". :\ :/ :(

OK, I'll give it a try but if this stuffs up my machine more, you better watch your back :P

Just joking.

OK, I'm going to do this relabeling thing you mention now.

chuong
1st November 2006, 09:01 AM
My SELinux is relabeling now.

It said something before relabeling though:

unknown boot option ".autorelabel" ignoring.

chuong
1st November 2006, 09:05 AM
Uh . . . that's quick, my SELinux relabeling is done already.

Faster than last time . . . on Fedora Core 5.

------

No luck either.

I think I need to get my network fixed as well.

Whenever I try to connect to this computer using my other computer, it keep saying "Sorry, couldn't display all the content on Windows Network: 192.168.1.100"

I know my network cable is plugged in and I could use it yesterday even though my Internet isn't working. Now it ain't working.

So even if my Internet was to work, my network problem would still be in the way of me connecting to the Internet.

u-noneinc-s
1st November 2006, 10:49 AM
If it said .autorelabel was an unknown option, I guess I gave you the wron option for the kernel line.
The relabel thing was just a shot because there were some selinux updates. There is another way to make it relabel but try disabling selinux instead.

As root, just type setenforce 0. if that doesn't work, my shot in the dark missed and I don't know what to tell you. No need to reboot this time setenforce 0 will either work or it wont.

Also enter this in your browser address bar 64.233.167.99 and try it. (maybe the bind package(s) "broke" your nameservers.

Unfortunately, I think you're going to need a reinstall. and I didn't see/recognise anything in the updates that might have caused all the problems. the shadow-utils is for accounts and passwords but you can login ok.
bind-utils (and bind-libs) is a DNS thing. It could cause problems with internet which would affect yum/yumex, but I don't know if it would affect local net and rpm. I guess bind does a lot.
rsh is remote shell could be why you can't login from the local net.
I don't know if any of them should affect rpm.

chuong
1st November 2006, 10:53 AM
I typed Setenforce 0 as su - and it didnt' do anything.

[root@mycomputer ]# Setenforce 0
[root@mycomputer ]#

Should I still disable SELinux?

As for the browser thing:

"
Unable to connect to server

Firefox was unable to connect to the server 64.233.167.99

. . .

"

By the way

I notice one thing when I reboot my machine:

............ [ OK ]
Stopping hpssd: [FAILED]
............ [ OK ]

and my RPM is working ^.^!

and I can't seem to find the "Samba" service in the (Gnome) System > Administration > Services daemon. Maybe that's why my network isn't working.

For the fedora-core.repo, fedora-updates.repo and fedora-extras.repo, is all I'm doing is changing the # for the first chunk of code at the top?

There are other codes under them should I just move all the # from the baseurl to the mirrolist for all fedora-core.repo, fedora-updates.repo and fedora-extras repo ?

My network is stuffed right now.

I have to fix it first before I can get any Internet connection happening. Is there any way to check my network status and fix it?

I've tried:

[root@mycomputer ~]# ping 192.168.1.100

but it says:


"connect: Network is unreachable"

I think my RPM is working because I tried searching if Blender (the 3D software I'm using) is installed:

[root@mycomputer ~]# rpm -qa | egrep 'blender'

Man, I love you guys hey?

(even though my problem hasn't been solved yet)

You guys reply so fast. The LinuxQuestions.org reply so slow but that's understandable because it deals with all distro.

OK, I'll do what you say leigh, give me a few minutes.

I can't update if my network isn't working.

My computer (the one with the Fedora Core 6 only OS on it) is connected to this computer that has the internet router and connection. If my fc6 computer can't connect to this computer, how can I do yum -y update?

I'm using direct connect to the Internet, with a static ip address.

Here's the output anyways:

I don't think I'm using DNS because I know nothing about networking but I've never used a domain name server such as "mycomputer@linux.server" or anything.

By the way . . . you guys aren't going to hack into my computer are you?

I've only got open source stuff like Blender. Damn I love that feeling!

leigh123linux
1st November 2006, 02:06 PM
I think you have typed in you settings wrong it says your ip is 192.16.1.3 ( i think it shoud be 192.168.1.3) according to you

Sorry, cannot display all the contents for Windows Network: 192.168.1.100" ( surely these should match unless you have two networks)

to hack you machine i need more than a internel ip address i.e an external address

chuong
1st November 2006, 02:10 PM
192.168.1.100 is this computer I'm using right now not the broken Fedora Core 6 one.

192.16.1.3 isn't wrong. It is 192.168.1.3 for my Fedora Core 6 because I typed it using the GUI and it was working a few days ago, the internet and the network and RPM and Livna. . ..

I remember the samba config i.e. smb.conf also uses 192.16.1.3 . . .it's just something technical that is how it works. Unless it's really wrong, otherwise I believe that's suppose to be like that.

Maybe you could output yours and compare, see if it does the same thing?

It could possibly be that my network cable is broken . . . I mean the end of it is pretty loose when I plug it into my network card - never hear the clicking sound when I plug it in - dangerous just like Linux shells - never know what's going on.

1st November 2006, 02:16 PM
not according to /sbin/ifconfig

my gateway address is 192.168.1.1 (router) i use ipv6

no, do you DHCP or static ip addressing also do have two machines with same ip address

chuong
1st November 2006, 03:12 PM
No, I don't.

My brothers advice me clearly - DON'T USE THE SAME IP ADDRESS FOR THE NETWORK.

I tried this once before a few years ago and it caused a IP conflict pop-up on Windows.

I beleive I'm using a static IP address since it's 192.168.1.3.

but hwo do I check if I'm using DHCP or not?

It was the DNS settings.

Now that I think about it after installing Fedora Core 6, I asked my brother what settings to use for my network and he only gave me the IP address, gateway and subnet mask. I was kind of curious why he didn't ask me to put the DNS too because I remember last time on Fedora Core 4/5 he told me to set the DNS.

He must've forgotten.

Oh, one more thing, can I re enable IPv6 again or will it cause conflicts in the future?

If I can enable IPv6 again, do I just remove the two lines alias net-pf-10 off and alias IPv6 ?

leigh123linux
1st November 2006, 04:49 PM
you can try it just comment out those two lines in modprobe.conf i.e put a # at the begining of each added line and restart

when you restart confirm with /sbin/ifconfig and check for the ipv6 entries

I'm having a similar problem as well. Have just installed FC6 and during the auto updates, it freezes and I lose internet and cannot restart my ethernet connection.

I turned off auto updates, did 'yum clean all' and then tried to do a yum update. Third way through downloading all the update (about 250 of them) it says that it cannot find the mirror, and trys another and then another etc. Internet connection is lost.

If I don't try to update, my internet connection is fine.

Error messages are helpful (though maybe not always possible).
Try running yum with debug enabled and redirect the output to a file (maybe too big to post but you can probably find the relative part of the output).
Maybe something like yum -d 5 update > yum.debug. I don't know if you can redirect yum output this way and I'm afraid I can't try it. Whenever I run yum, I have problems with yumex and need to reboot to clear it. (some weird problem)

Well, I figured out that the whole thing stalled and messed up during the download for OpenOffice. I enabled Auto update again. Choose not to get update for OpenOffice and then it worked. I even still had my network connection at the end.
