I am using openSUSE since last 4 years ,which is installed on my External Transcend 320 Gig External Hard-disk. Now I don't know why but my network is not working, i.e. when I click on "Network Manager", it reads, "Network Manager disabled". So is there any way to overcome from this problem? I also tried to restart the network service but, it did not worked.
We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

The video acceleration is clearly not enabled since I can practically watch each pixel drawn. (Well, a bit hyperbolic, but really slow.) Another system, same hardware, had this slow video problem and at one point required a complete OS re-installation. The slow video refresh went away. So there is some way to configure the graphics+display to enable acceleration at install time.
Last night I already succeeded upgrading to 10.10 (Maverick meerkat), on previous version I never face wireless issue after installed additional package (sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter). But after upgrading I saw the wireless is disabled and the hardware indicator light off. I used Lenovo notebook.
I was cleaning my laptop and hit the wireless shortcut key on my Dell inspiron and disabled the wirless card. The key will not turn it back on either (I maybe messed with the short cut but dont remember). In the network manager it says "wireless hardware disabled". I am running 11.04 beta with gnome 3 shell. Here is from terminal
So I have been trying to connect my Wiimote up to my PC using the following HOWTO: [URL]... I had it working last week and for some reason it has now stopped working. I am using a USB Bluetooth dongle and I am sure that it is still working because I can connect the Wiimote up to my laptop no problem. What I have noticed is that on my Laptop the bluetooth icon is highlighted and on my PC although the Icon is there it is greyed out. When I go to preferences and click on turn on Bluetooth the button greys out for a while and then comes back saying "Turn Bluetooth on" again.
I installed the server version 10.04. The only problem with the install was setting up the network. I believe it was due to the fact that my nic was not setup correctly. The installation reconciled the nic, but upon the reboot after the install, I had no network capabilities. I tried to ping the router, no luck. ifconfig only showed lo. Also, the GUI (command F7) freezes and does not responds. The last thing shown is configuring web server. I tried to ndsiwrapp the drivers to the nic, but found out that ndsiwrapper is for wifi connections.
I have been using ubuntu 10.10 (running on a Dell Inspiron N4010) for a couple months and love it but the wireless just recently stopped working and I can't figure out how to re-enable it. I've searched endlessly the FAQ's, forums, etc but nothing seems to work.
I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.
I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.
Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.
As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience. ---- EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working. ----- EDIT 2: found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
I've recently installed a second monitor and it's great having all that extra space.
However, Ubuntu 'loses' the new monitor after a restart and I have to go into System>Preferences>Display and get the second monitor re-enabled and put to the left of my existing monitor. Quick flicker and the second monitor is on.
I don't really want to have to do this every day so am I missing something so my second monitor is remembered?
I have recently installed 10.4 (wubi installation), and am having strange problems with my networking.
It was working fine, wireless enabled, connecting to my network fine. Then for what seems like no reason, it decided to disable the wirless on boot, and I cannot re-enable it, the option to enable it (by right clicking the nm applet) is greyed out.
I have had this problem twice now, the first time it happened, my ubuntu installation was really new, so I just reinstalled, no harm done. The second time I did something that seemed to fix it (for a while at least), but now that is not working.
I'm running 11.04 with Unity and enabled Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager. I ended up disabling services, i think "largedesktop" and enabling others like OpenGL and composite. Anyway, unity no longer works including the bar above and the icons to the left. Any idea how I can fix this?
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
I do have internet cause I am using it on W7. The only thing that I have done different is I left the pc on over night so I guess it went to suspend for the first time. Then I powered off. After turning the pc back on and logging in I have no internet. Not even with the Ethernet plugged directly in. There is supposed to be a little blue light on when it sees the wireless and that is off. When I click on the networking icon in the system tray it says networking disabled. It shows no wireless. When I plug directly in I still get nothing. I'm using 10.04
I have just finished installing 9.04 via USB onto an Acer Travelmate C110.For the record, 9.10 refused to even boot on this laptop. I used universal-usb-installer and unetbootin, both without success.The installation completed successfully, except that wireless networking is not enabled. Can someone please point me to the correct resource whereby I can get the wireless nic working.
Everything worked fine on kernel 2.6.33-6.But since the update to kernel 2.6.33-8, not always but nearly everytime I resume from suspend, my wireless network is disabled.When I right click the tray Icon the "Enable Networking" box is unticked and greyed out.Only a reboot brings networking back
for some reason, since i switched to a static ip configuration my wired nic is disabled at startup. in order for it to work i have to manually start it with ifup. i am not using a network manager of any kind.
This is probably already on these forums, but I recently re-installed suse 11.3 and had the desktop effects working fine with the desktop cube animation and everything. But not the case this time...I resume compositing, and try my desktop effect shortcuts, but nothing happens and it comes up saying for me to press Alt+Shift+F12 to resume the compositing again. I do that, but still nothing, and I even re-apply the desktopct settings completely and restart the computer and it comes up saying that none of them were activated or something in the notifications pop-up on the bottom right of the screen. I thought I downloaded the right files (OpenGL??) from the repositories along with basically anything I thought would make it work.
I was having some trouble with dual display on my laptop, so I loaded the system using the nv graphics driver. I got some message from gnome3 saying that my display configuration wasn't supported, and then it fell back to something that looks similar to gnome2. I switched back to the nouveau driver, but gnome3 didn't come back. Does anybody know how to switch it back?
Recently I noted that when transferring files between my HDs the CPU usage increases up to 80~ 100%. After the transfer ends, the cpu goes back to normal. The system monitor reports no process consuming those cycles, yet there is something eating up The CPU.
Doing some research I concluded it was probably something related to DMA and UDMA. which is weird because all my drives report they have UDMA6 enabled in the BIOS, and in windows I don't have that problem.
Running hdparm -d gives me the following error: /dev/sda3: HDIO_GET_DMA failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device for every partition on every device, though this does not actually tell if DMA is on or off I suspect it is off. I checked if this was a suse exclusive problem, and to my surprise, debian and aptosid, behave exactly the same. The only reason I didnt note before is cause I had never transfered so many files before, (about 250GB) and the small transfers I did were over quite quick.
I'd like to make emphasis on:
1.The problem is the same regardless if I transfer 5GB or 150. 2. In windows my cpu does not go above 10% at any time during the transfer.
I have 3 sata HDs. All my OS's are in sda (120GB) I use sdb (250GB) and sdc (500GB) as data and media storage. ALl drives are Western Digital with less than 2 years of usage, and pass all smart tests with flying colors.

I am quite experienced in installing openSUSE. (I used it for many years.) But the problem showed below tricks me out.
I just tried to install openSUSE 11.2. In initmode 3 the keyboard works well. Everything worked well up to the moment I started runlevel 5. In XWindows Modus, the keyboard and the mouse are disabled. And I cannot get back to any other Virtual console.
When I started sax2, I get something (in the file /var/log/Sax.log) or both mouse and keyboard like this:
It indicates , mouse and keyboard are disabled.
Here are my questions:
How can I ENABLE my keyboard and my mouse?
Where is the file that configures sax2?
Do I have to set ("on") the AutoAddDevices? or to "off"
Just bought new laptop i7 with broadcom wireless, intalled opensuse 11.3 x64. I had major trouble to make it work... Even compiled kernel 2.6.37-rc6, but didnt go.Then I took drivers and firmware from git repositories, compiled, did what it was necessary and I made it work.This morning, (since system was new), I just did zypper upgrade (nothing new installed from default installation, I just added packman to repos).And, now wireless is not working. In network manager, option "enable wireless" is disabled.I went to YaST, put network on ifup, it did scan networks, but cant make it work either. Turned it back to network manager, but same thing.Module brcm80211 is loaded, but I cannot make wireless work.
