Fedora Add Software Error

When I try to add or remove software on my Fedora 9, get this error
"Problem connecting to a software Source - Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again."

What is causing this error?

Try using Yum instead of the graphical add/remove thing. If yum can't automatically find the repository then edit this location :
/etc/yum.repos.d/

the command line option to install is :

#yum install your_desired_package

Hope this will help

Ensure that when you reinstall the drivers you start reinstalling with phone USB not connected to computer. That is a cause for error 1316.

Try also a replacement usb cable if you have on sometimes a bad cable can give you the error.

I got error on printer LBP2900 when connect to my laptop (windows 7) It show communication error but usb connection and software installation no problem. Any idea about it?


Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first: 1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer 2) Reboot 3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software: 1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have) 2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer 3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer 4) Reboot 5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running 6) Re-run the printer installation software

CANNOT INSTALL UPDATES FOR ADOBE READER 9


What error-message(s) do you get when you try?

If you're referring to the _free_ Acrobat Reader,
use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Then, download the latest version of the software from http://www.adobe.com -- most of the updates will already be integrated into the download.

If you're referring to the "full" software (that creates PDF files), find your original software, and license-key. Then, use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Restart your computer.
Reinstall from the media, using the license-key.
Then, do the "check for updates" within the software.

Fatal error during installation


First u must make sure to close and exit all the applications that are using the resource of JDK.
Method 1: disable the auto load of JDK on machine start up from System Configuration Utility. Then reboot and try to uninstall again from the Add or Remove Programs.
Method 2: reinstall JDK and immediately uninstall it after the installation done. Or maybe u will found the uninstall function during the JDK setup.
Method 3: can try to use the cleaner software like CCleaner to uninstall the JDK application.

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account

Deleted miccro soft works by mistake error keeps flashing up telling me to find instalation source dont have and dont know how


You need to have the source cd to install or unistall this software properly. If you don't have the source cd, I would suggest you either buy a copy of the software or take the PC down to the a computer shop, call them first to see if they have the your software available to them, then have the qualified PC Technician install the software again and if so desired, remove it the correct way via add and remove programs.

Good luck...
