I have waited before and things got corrected on their own, just not this long.
I was starting to get a little worried about if I needed to do something on my own. I am really enjoying Mageia 4 and it is running smoothly on my computer (well for the rarely occasional update issue).
−−sortmedia media1,...,media N Sort the specified media. −−synthesis file Use the specified synthesis file instead of the urpmi database for searching packages and resolving dependencies. −−use−distrib directory Configure urpmi on the fly from a distrib tree, useful to install a chroot with the −−root option.
See the description of the −−distrib option in the manpage.
I'm sure for those using package manager for rpm-based distro had encountered "rpm database locked".
For Mandriva users, they will encounter similar error such as "urpmi database locked".
Those errors are produced when other application is using rpm or urpmi database and to prevent simultaneous access to those databases.
In many cases though, there is no application accessing rpm/urpmi database simultaneously but the stale locks are still there. Depends on what error produced, you need to remove either one.
I found a post that advised that clam .9x's config file was somehow incompatible w/less then klamav .41. it would be nice if people updating the repos would check simple things like keeping clam & klamav in sync....Try to ask your questions in the right sub-forum with as much details as you can gather. If not, you can define a certain mirror in the MCC You can find a list of possible mirrors here: Choose a mirror in your vicinity and one with a possible fast connection (university for example)Hope this helps (and sorry for my bad english)cheers, Bernd I am sorry for not responding to your helpful suggestions sooner.the more precise the question will be, the more likely you are to get a useful answer Installation failed, some files are missing: rsync://mageia.jameswhitby.net/mirror/mageia/distrib/4/i586/media/core/updates/libmpfr4-3.1.2-2.1.mga4.i586rsync://mageia.jameswhitby.net/mirror/mageia/distrib/4/i586/media/core/updates/curl-7.34.0-1.5.mga4.i586rsync://mageia.jameswhitby.net/mirror/mageia/distrib/4/i586/media/core/updates/libcurl4-7.34.0-1.5.mga4.i586You may need to update your urpmi database. I tell it to try (Yes) and then get this:1 installation transactions failed There was a problem during the installation:...retrieving failed: rsync failed: exited with 23How do I go about solving this problem? Firefighter Hi Firefighter,from my experience this is mostly a glitch with the mirror. I drive a truck and I am away from the computer for long periods of time. Waiting did solve this problem and now all is well and updated properly.Thanks to Aubrey Kloppers for creating a Raspberry Pi installer.See his link on the discussion forum - Thanks to Tom Roth for creating a way to install rompr from Docker - https://github.com/rawdlite/docker-rompr Romp R is a client for mpd or mopidy - you use Romp R in a web browser to make mpd or mopidy play music.
