Doh! Really? Did I miss something? I don't see it in bugzilla. Can you add the info?

Thanks for fixing Englightenment!

I now have my own bugzilla account and I've added another small problem with packages (bug 989).

did you run `yum -y update` before `yum install kmod-nvidia`?

Code:
yum update && yum install kmod-nvidia

I dont think it's a good idea to run `yum update` with the livna repo enabled. You shouldn't do that (or a `apt-get upgrade`) when non-blag repos are enabled or you may wind up with a funky system...

Doh! Would that really mess up a system that bad? How would one recover a goofy move such as I would've done?

Search these repos for people that have dist-upgraded with other repos enabled...And originally you even threw in a `-y` for good measure..

Well you shouldnt have to re-install unless you did a dist-upgrade with another repo enabled. Even if you did that you don't necessarily need to re-install.

I'd suggest not installing proprietary software at all, of course...There's a reason you're encountering troubles and it's due to using the non-free software.

Agreeing with jebba here, the best way to install something from another repo - if you've decided that that's what you're going to do - is to grab only the specific RPMs needed and then to apply like so:

Code:

rpm -Uvh <rpm>


I just had to do this exact thing in my workplace. A customer wanted the XFS filesystem implemented on a Red Hat host. The problem is that Red Hat doesn't support XFS, but the salesman said "of course we can do that for you if it means closing the deal". I grabbed a pair of RPMs from a CentOS repo and installed them on the system - just in time for the customer to do a 5TB data load.

So... "supplementing" a repo can be done, but should only be done piecemeal. Just my two pesos, mind you.

The funkiness occurs because an "apt update" or "yum update" modifies the package cache in /var/cache/apt. This could result in duplicate packages, overwritten packages or - worse of all - packages that conflict with existing applications. It's probably best to just grab the RPM or tar file from the livna repo and install it separately, leaving your local package cache intact.
