Issue Using Zypper Update on ESXI 6.0


I did a new install of SLES 11 SP4. After running command
zypper addrepo oss to add the repo, I run into errors when using command zypper update. Below is the section when the error happens

Installing: libmpc2-0.8.2-9.1 [done]
Installing: lockdev-1.0.3_git201003141408-7.1 [error]
Installation of lockdev-1.0.3_git201003141408-7.1 failed:
(with --nodeps --force) Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: Usage: chkstat [–set] [–noheader] [[–examine file] …] [ [–files filelist] …] permission-file …
error: %post(lockdev-1.0.3_git201003141408-7.1.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i] (a):

I’m currently running the OS in ESXI 6.0. Would you know what would cause the above issue?



The openSUSE 11.4 release is NOT the same as SLES 11 SP4 and will break
your system as you have discovered, remove the repo :wink:

If you register the system with a registration code it will add the
online repositories…

You can always grab a free 60 day eval code?
