Hi everybody,

[sorry if this is the wrong list, I could not find a forum or other mail linst list]

I have been using Synaptic for quite some time to great satisfaction. However, now whenever I do a reload for the new packages, I see a brief dialog shoing the progress, it vanishes, and synaptic hangs terribly (only kill -9 will remove it from memory) This has happened since approx 5 days now and I have no changes to my system (other then the ones synaptic marked).

apt-get works, it reloads the repositories and reports the packages to be upgraded, but when I want to download them with synaptic (I assume apt-get updated the same repository) I get the following message:

W: Failed to fetch

Is there something that makes synaptic crash upon reload? The repositories I have are standard SUSE plus some of the suser ones (packman, etc).

Synaptic package version:


Which seems to be one older then the one released. Does anybody have a clue? Or know how to update the packages with apt-get ? I know apt-get upgrade works too but there are packages there I do not wish to update.

I am fairly a beginner with linux, but this is something I cannot solve.I am using OpenSuse 10.

With regards.
- Jorgen
