View Full Version : Kubuntu Netbook Edition - KPackagekit Crashes
May 3rd 2010, 01:41 AM
I've performed a clean install of the Lucid Netbook edition of Kubuntu, and every time I add a new repository to KPackageKit and reload it crashes. Symptom is usually hanging there after achieving between 95% and 99% of the reloading. So I've had to install from terminal.

Open a console and run:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Try KpackageKit again. But personally, I say install Synaptic from the console:
sudo apt-get install synaptic
and use it instead. Synaptic is a far superior package manager. Kpackagekit, well, sucks.

Thanks for the reply and the suggestion. After performing the apt-get commands, KPackagekit still crashes when adding a new PPA repository. Let me just add that I was previously running Karmic in this same Netbook and it never crashed before. The only difference is that I am now running the Kubuntu Lucid Netbook edition. Maybe it's related to the Netbook edition...

Try as I suggested, installing Synaptic, either from Kpackagekit or from the CLI, and just stop using Kpackagekit as your main package manager. You'll be a lot happier.
