    2006 Updates


    When I try to run updates in Mandriva 2006 they hang at "Verifying Package Signatures" at about 50%. I can kill the process just fine if I use the PID in konsole, but why is it hanging? Anybody else know?

    Does it say what app it is upgrading at that point, if so, upgrade that one on it's own first, then do the rest, might stop it from hanging.

    Yeah I ran it from command line so I could watch what happened when it got stuck and it's the curl updates.

    This isn't really an answer as such, but I've also been having issues with the package management system. I upgraded to 2006 from LE 2005 and things actually improved for a while ... I updated plenty of packages (including curl) ... Now the whole thing hangs during updates and using EasyUrpmi isn't a solution.

    It might have something to do with being unable to resolve dependencies ... If the update manager can't find all the packages it needs it hangs up and at that point things go very pear shaped indeed.

    I'm also stuck! Is there a corrupted file somewhere? Something I've noticed: when the update manager hangs, hitting Ctrl+Esc brings up a list of processes in KDE. Curl seems to be working in the background at that point ... Then it shuts itself down. Maybe this is a problem with curl??
