Hi,
I just wanted to upgrade my old Laptop (using Pardus 2008) to get Open Office 3 when something strange happened: When I select packages in package-manager the basket remains empty! Not even the packages I selected are there.

When I try "pisi up" in a root terminal, I get a system error that some packages do not match the dependencies with the kernel and pisi exits.

Any idea how I can fix this? I don't want to do a re-install!

Hello,

type pisi rebuild-db in console as root.

All options from pisi you find, if you type pisi help in console.

Thanks, but it didn't help.

I tried both update and rebuild database (which was rebuilt) but it didn't do any good, the problem still remains unsolved.

I think it's deeper in the system...

Any other ideas?

What error message do you get when trying to install a package from command line (pisi it package) ?

Could it be a memory shortage problem (old laptop), I have experienced somewhat similar problems when running out of free memory.
Try to free some space up, and see whether that helps

Error I get with pisi it (package):

Systemfehler - Programm beendet.
Rückabhängigkeit linux-uvc von kernel kann nicht zufriedenstellend sein.

This is (bad) German for:

System Error - program terminated.
back-dependency linux-uvx of kernel cannot be satisfied.

Doesn't make much sense in German either - I guess pisi wants to force-update security patches but cannot, I'm sure it wants the new kernel, as I still got an older one (113) on the system.

About memory (I think you mean free drive space?):
It got about 600 MB left, shouldn't this be enough for pisi? I cannot free up more memory, because the system partition is rather small, personal data rests on a separate home partition.

Thanks, PhiX, but it didn't do any good. I tried to clean stale locks and caches before, now I did it again, and then I got this:

Code:
wildkatze01 tiger # pisi it --reins linux-uvc
Sicherheitsschalter: Die folgenden Pakete in system.base werden aktualisiert:libX11 piksemel sysvinit
baselayout-contrib baselayout freetype python pardus-python dbus comar-api net-tools mkinitramfs
kernel grub glibc-zoneinfo udev libgcc pisi glibc libpng libgcrypt openssh openssl glib2 tiff disktype mudur
cracklib hdparm kernel-headers ConsoleKit lcms sqlite libxml2 expat curl pam sysklogd wireless-tools
pciutils comar usbutils
System Fehler. Programm beendet.
Rückabhängigkeit linux-uvc von kernel kann nicht zufriedenstellend sein

translation of first line: security switch: the following packages will be upgraded: ...

I think linux-uvc is not exactly the problem, because I got the same error with pwc before. As I didn't need it, I removed the package, then I got the same error with linux-uvc. I guess pisi reports this error with any package (whichever comes first) that can be updated, as Pardus always forces security and kernel updates as dependencies to any package to make sure these are installed. Here, I think pisi doesn't resolve dependencies anymore, so it wants the new kernel and other security updates but does not resolve the dependencies (adding new kernel to the 'basket') and then reports the error because the dependencies are not being installed. As I said, in package-manager (graphical pisi) the basket always remains empty, no matter how many packages I mark for installation.

I'm clueless....

I think a bug report will not be useful here, as this is not standard Pardus behavior, so nothing for the bug team to care about. None of the other Pardus machines I work with have this condition, it is something that happened to that Laptop - and I have no idea why!

But it's not a bug that could be reproduced...
