terminal doesnt't work after package update
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem: After making an Update of different packages, I can't
open ANY terminal. Neither gnome-terminal nor xterm works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
actual gnome-terminal package, actual xterm package
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
terminal doesn't start
terminal should start
Update was made via rpm, with no errors. Downgrade via Uninstall/Reinstall
doesn't work, too.
Tried an uninstall/reinstall of xterm, following happened:
With "rpm -ihv xterm-...." - The terminal doesn't start anyway
With "yum install xterm" following messages occur on EVERY! server
[ERRNO 4] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable due to
unobtainable file lenght
[ERRNO 9] IO Error: [Errno ftp error] Requested range not satisfiable
This seems to be a bug of yum.
After reinstalling Fedora Core 5, I tried an update via yum. Some packages work
without problems, but when trying to update xterm, yum or anacron the same error
Last update via YUM did not include an update of gnome-terminal, but did include
vte (vte.i386 0.12.1-1.fc5.1) and xterm (xterm.i386 212-1.FC5). Cannot get YUM
to restore the (old) version of vte from the Core repository.
YUM d/l development builds of vte, gnome-terminal (a dependency). Terminal
