    Hello,

    After an update I get this error message:
    DBus error : Unable to get transaction id from packagekit.

    This error also shows when I click the yellow triangle.

    When I start the manual update this shows:

    Er is een fout opgetreden bij de initialisatie van de installatiebron.
    'repo-oss': [|] Failed to cache repo (129).
    History:
    - 'repo2solv.sh' '-o' '/var/cache/zypp/solv/repo-oss/solv' '/var/cache/zypp/raw/repo-oss'
    Can't exec 'repo2solv.sh' (Bestand of map bestaat niet).


    It seems some shell is not there anymore.

    What to do?

    Kind regards,
    Bertus

    PS I use a dutch translation of the OpenSUSE 11.2

    English version of error:

    Do an ls -lt of /var/cache/zypp/raw/repo-oss

    An error occurred while initializing the installation source.
    'Repo-oss': [|] Failed to cache repo (129).
    History:
    - 'Repo2solv.sh' 'o' "/ var / cache / zypp / SOLV / repo-oss / Solve '' / var / cache / zypp / raw / repo-oss'
    Can not exec "repo2solv.sh '(file or folder does not exist).



    Do an ls -lt of /var/cache/zypp/raw/repo-oss
    See if there is a file there named repo2solv.sh, seems to be a "glue script" to convert some file format to another from the name.

    What you can try is upgrade all but that package and see if it goes error free. I would guess it is a bug in the package installation script, I've made a couple bad packages (Debian dev here...). Check the SuSe Boards for anybody else having that issue, it could be related only to the Dutch version.

    Hello,

    The problem seem to be solved.
    The script was part of the satsolver package.
    I downloaded it from the respotory and installed it.
    Afther that I could use the online updater for updating the whole distro of SUSE.

    Greetings,
    Bertus

    Hello,

    I started with linux distributions some five years ago.
    There where some irritating viruses that blew my windows 98SE a couple of times.
    Then I tried mandrake linux, that worked fine in the beginning until they joined connectiva and made mandriva.
    This blew my setup again, all mails and documents where lost.
    Then I tried suse 9.3 followed by suse 10.3 and now suse 11.2.

    There is a lot of software comparable with the windows software.
    There is OpenOffice in stead of microsoft office.(also available for windows)
    There is KolourPaint in stead of windows paint.
    There are Konquerer, opera and firefox as browsers in stead of IE.
    There are Kmail And Thunderbird as email programs.

    You can go on with a lot of alternative programs.

    You can have a look at linux using a "live-cd".
    These are cd's that you can doot from and have a look at the linux enviroment.

    One good example of a live-cd is knoppix:
    http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html

    There is a whole list of live-cd's over here:
    http://www.livecdlist.com/
    There you will also find cd's for special tasks.

    We use CentOS linux for business servers and telephone systems.

    It's incredibly stable, systems run for years at a time without interruptions.

    Centos is an 'enterprise class' release, designed for reliability. There are builds for all sorts of computers from PCs up to Mainframes. Nothing goes in to it until it's been tested to death.

    At the other end, for all the latest bells and whistles & multimedia support etc., I use Fedora linux as an alternate system on a laptop.

    Both Centos and Fedora are based on the commercial RedHat release, so once you get used to the file structure and commands in one you know the other as well.

    There is a 'live CD' version of Fedora.

    Hello,

    NOT all windows programs will run on suse (linux).
    A lot will run using the WINE emulator.

    Are there special programs you would like to use?
    Here you can see what programs run under WINE:
