CentOS 5 :: Swap Out Our 150+ Novell Suse Enterprise Server For CentOS?

Jan 28, 2010

I am trying to see if I can swap out our 150+ Novell Suse Linux Enterprise Server for CentOS. From my initial thoughts I can. I am however running into an issue with the firstboot. Currently, we use firstboot on Suse with our base image. We created an image which we deploy and then firstboot runs our necessary scripts to configure the networking and office specific settings. I want to test this out but when I search for the firstboot.xml file I can't find it. I need to modify the config file and change the way the firstboot runs. Is this possible with CentOS?

I am also wondering if anyone is using Novell ZenWorks Linux Management to manage their CentOS instances or if you are using something else I would like to hear what tool you're using. I would need the ability to deploy patch/ security updates and make occasionally changes to files, not very often though.

Just a brief run down of what the server(s) will be doing. Their primary purpose is to provide caching via squid and the use of the browser for new hires until they get their notebooks. The browser runs Java and flash and the ability to print is also necessary. Pretty basic stuff so I am looking at CentOS cause the forums look very active!

Software :: Install GeForce 8600 XT Driver In Novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11?

Feb 9, 2011

I'm trying to install a GeForce 8600 XT card into novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11 so that I can get the 3D Cube to work. It currently does not work with the default nvidia card onthe motherboard.I can not find the correct driver for the GeForce 8600XT card. Can someone identify the driver I should be using please? Then if someone could also direct me to the "How to install a Video Driver" tutorial,

UPDATE:I've downloaded the correct drivers but it still says that my hardware does not support Desktop enhancements etc ... I think the GeForce 8600 XT just doesn't support 3D accelleration ... period.Can someone suggest a reasonably priced video card that is easy to install and which supports 3D Accelleration please?

CentOS 5 :: Migrate A Host From Oracle Enterprise -> CentOS?

Jan 5, 2011

I have some Oracle (Unbreakable|Enterprise) Linux systems, mostly running v5.4. I'd like to migrate them to CentOS 5.4 (or 5.5... I'm not picky about that).Is it as simple as updating the repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d, and issuing 'yum upgrade', or is there further magic involved?

SUSE / Novell :: How To Get My Server Up And Running

Jan 20, 2010

My external storage failed and 1 file system related was damaged. When booting OS, it stops on fsck with the damaged file system. Thus the OS will never be up and running, no matter how long I wait. My question is, how to skip the fsck on the damaged file system? Since OS can not be booted up, I have no chance to change /etc/fstab. I just want to boot up the OS and remove the damaged file system manually.

SUSE / Novell :: NTP Server And KDE Configuration

May 7, 2010

I have one desktop (AMD Athlon 1.14 GHz, nVIDIA nFORCE2 chipset, 1GB RAM, nVIDIA Gigabytes graphic acelerator/duel monitor card, M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI sound card) and an Acer Extensa 4620 laptop (Intel Core2 DUO, Intel 965 chipset). I started with Debian Lenny 5.0.3 i386 for both the systems. Since I found it a little hard for a beginner like me to make things work on Debian and also since I did not get 64bit version, I switched over to OpenSUSE 11.2. At present I am duel booting my desktop with OpenSUSE 11.2 i586 and MS Windows XP Pro/SP2 and my laptop runs only OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64.

I want to know which is the best NTP server to use. Also I would like to know how I can configure my KDE desktop to look and behave like Mac OS or MS windows XP. Are help files available for KDE?

Hardware :: Error : "Could Not Find The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Installation CD

Apr 21, 2011

We are in the process of testing SLES 10 SP1 installation, onto a new system.

Initially the installation got failed at the start giving following error :

"Could not find the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Installation CD. Activating Manual setup program."

What is interesting to notice is , if we use SLES 10 SP2 to boot the system upto the Installation menu and then replace the CD with SLES 10 SP1 media, the installation proceeds as normal without any error.

Not sure that could be the problematic thing over here. Does it mean with SP1 , no cdrom/cd or hard disk gets detected ?

SUSE / Novell :: SSH Server Accepting Connections / Then Dropping Them

Oct 25, 2010

I did a clean install of OpenSuse 11.3 a couple of weekends back. Everything is working great except the SSH server.Once I installed ssh, it appears to accept my connection, allows me to log in, and then freezes Putty, not allowing me to type anything into the terminal.If I wait several minutes, I'll get a message saying that the connection was closed. After that, the server won't accept connections.Sometimes it'll start accepting connections again, but after a while, the connection will close on its own. Other times, I will be unable to get a connection until I restart the server.If you guys needs any more information, please let me know. What could be causing this odd behavior?

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?

how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.

I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.

What is missing, or is it a permission problem? All the other application icons seem fine.
