I was tryin to install virtualbox on Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 and it said it needs pad-devil. I looked in the software archive that came with sled 11 but it wasnt there. I tried downloading the VirtualBox install for Suse Linux Enterprise Server but got the same error as when i tried install VirtualBox with the opensuse 11.1 rpm file. can virtualbox even be install on sled? (has anyone done it?) and if so where can i find pam-devil?
Last winter we had the intention of using VMWare branded Novell Suse Enterprise as we were going to be getting the licenses/subscription through the purchase of Vsphere. Since that time we have set up 4 VMs, and have been testing an application that will soon be going into production status. However a new issue has arisen. As we are over budget we will not get the Vsphere license (which included Suse subscription). We also found that the added features of a Vsphere license do not really add anything over the free ESX hypervisor.
On the one hand these servers have all been configured precisely, on the other hand we have no update service from which I understand we would need a Novell subscription. Most of the repositories we have added are external to Novell, meaning they are community ones. So my questions are this:
1.) Can we use Opensuse community repositories for the Online Update?
2.) If not is there a way to easily 'convert' Enterprise Suse to Opensuse?
Obviously what we first want to avoid is having to do a brand new install of Opensuse and spend the time moving data from the old to the new. One of the issues that has caused the delay and over runs is that the application we will be deploying has not lived up to its promises, and has caused considerable amount of time configuring, tweaking, and de-bugging.
for the past 2 month or so i've been constantly annoyed by my yast automatic updater to install a regress patch to send firefox back to 3.5.11...which i've been ignoring for a long time because to be honest i'm convinced that those suse developers have pretty much lost the plot recently , instead i've sticked to the latest stable releases of firefox that is 3.6.8 (btw today 3.6.9 has been released and i'm about to upgrade firefox to that...today)
anyways , my suspecion has been confirmed when another update poped up that said it's gonna update firefox from 3.5.11 to 3.6.8 (which is what i have now)so the question: HOW does the updater track which updates have been installed and which haven't? and how can i remove all or ignore firefox related updates ?
install the firefox 3.6 on opensuse Desktop edition. As my new application software is only supporting 3.6 or greater version of mozilla firefox. i was forced to upgrade or to reinstall my current firefox (version 126.96.36.199). kindly help me and please tell me what is the procedure to install forefox 3.6 or higher version in opensuse 10. i cannot upgrade opensuse 10 to opensuse 11 or 11.3 as my company wont allow me to make modifications in the operating system. i have the latest version of firefox downloaded. the format is tar.gz2 while i am trying to extract it. i find errors in extracting even after extracting successfully i find permission errors.
I have a program that needs 32-bit libtcl8.4.so and libtk8.4.so.
I have the Red Hat supplemental DVD that has the tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm and the tk-devel-8.4.13-5.el5_1.1.i386.rpm
I tried to install the tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm package using the following command: "rpm -ivh --force tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm
I get the following error message: "Warning: tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 37017186 error: failed dependencies: libtcl8.4.so is needed by tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm"
I have scoured the internet and everything says to install these packages to get the tcl and tk libraries.
So I updated my software using Yast. One of the updates failed to install. I rebooted and then was in black screen hell with the following information:

This has been a problem and desipite my best efforts I am at a loss to explain what is happening.
I am running a Suse 11 box and I will be storing some automated backups on an XP box. The Suse box is hosting a samba domain to which the xp box is a member.
For the moment the share permissions are wide open while I troubleshoot (everyone full access on the xp share) I can mount the share no problem on the Suse box and even read the contents. If I attempt to write to the share though I get permission denied (logged in as root at the moment)
I created the mount point using mkdir -p /media/backup Then I mounted the share using mount -t cifs //172.16.16.245/backup /media/backup -o username=root, -o password=XXXXXXX
share on the XP box is also called backup (just in case there was any confusion regarding the mount command I used)
if I run an ls -l on the mount point afterwords I can see my files already in the share no problem. I would be very greatful if anyone can point out what I have done wrong so I can get this fixed once and for all. Thank you in advance.
I should probably also mention that both systems are on the same lan and at the moment firewalls are down until this is fixed.
Is there a way in SuSE 11.1 to have the conventional desktop, instead the plasma desktop? I thought that installing KDE 3.5 will fix it, but I was wrong. I really don't want to download back SuSE 11.0, just to have my old desktop layout. SuSE developers should at least leave it as an option than to force people to install it
I have installed the Suse Enterprise server 11 SP1 on my laptop. I have the atheros AR8132 network card, and it seams the suse is detecting correctly, but i can't start the network up. He returns an erros saying that the eth0 is not supported by suse, or kernel, i must check to be sure.
I am using SUSE enterprise server 11 SP1. I have jboss server application 4.0.5 GA in the above O.S where I have some problem in running the jboss. How and where to download the latest jboss server for the O.S
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 ?
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?

PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2/' My 11.2 won't update and gives this error. Anyone know how to fix it?
PackageKit is a system designed to make installing and updating software on your computer easier. The primary design goal is to unify all the software graphical tools used in different distributions, and use some of the latest technology like PolicyKit to make the process suck less.
What would be the preferred method to establish a remote desktop session from one 11.2 machine to another 11.2 machine in the same location? No firewalls, local connection only. I've looked at VNC, RDP with xrdp, have not been able to establish a session to desktop. I would rather not use desktop sharing if possible, don't want invitations involved. Want something similar to hitting from Windows with VNC3and taking over the established desktop session. This is in my house, no security risks involved
I have a SUSE 10 sp2 server that I am using for hosting VMware and virtual machines. I have installed the basic host machine with only file server enabled (no dns, dhcp, print services or anything else). This is the fifth time I have had to reinstall because after I applied all the updates the system downloaded, it would not boot with a cd/dvdrom mounted. I tried everything I knew hot to do, which I admit isn't much (edited the fstab, tried to mount through command line) but nothing brought it back.
this all started because I had the entire machine loaded with VMware, two virtual machines, and all was well until I decided to update the OES2 sp1 virtual machines. All manor of issues cropped up like corn in the summer. So I reloaded after a week because I couldn't fix the problems and decided in my limited knowledge the updates probably caused the issues, and there was no undoing the updates. I assume (dangerous as that may be) that I applied too many updates to my bare system, but I would like a more experienced opinion.
I am trying to install guest additions on Oracle Enterprise Linux Update 5. Whenever I try to the run VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run script I get the following problem:
erifying archive integrity.All good. Uncompressing VirtualBox 2.0.0 Guest Additions for Linux installation. VirtualBox 3.0.6 Guest Additions installation install the build and header files for your current Linux kernel. The current kernel version is 2.6.18-164.el5PAE Problems were found which would prevent the Guest Additions from installing. correct these problems and try again. I also tried yum install using the following commands without any luck:
yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers-`uname -r` Following are the package information of my kernel-devel and headers: > rpm -q kernel-devel kernel-devel-2.6.18-164.el5 > rpm -q kernel-headers kernel-headers-2.6.18-164.el5
I have been spending a couple of hours already on how to fix this but I still couldnt get to install this.
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!
