OpenSUSE :: Flash 10.2 Is Buggy As Heck - How Downgrade

Feb 15, 2011

I was upgraded to Adobe Flash 10.2 automatically via the updater. But it's been VERY, very buggy whereas 10.1 (or whatever came before it) was very stable. How do I switch back?

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.

Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?

OpenSUSE :: Update The Buggy Version Of Texinfo?

Aug 22, 2011

in 11.4 the texi2dvi version is 1.135, based on texinfo version 4.13. Now these are old buggy versions (see e.g. texi2dvi: locale-dependent error in egrep [A-z] ), causing that documentation can not be built, for example when building gcc. Now one would hope that Suse provides updates (the latest version of texinfo is 4.9), but I can't find them?

It seems to me that the installation of texinfo is a bit more complicated, because of the integration with your system, so I hesitate to install texinfo myself. Yast should have a bug-reporting facility, where one could easily report such issues. Hope somebody can help (we have to install various pieces of software, which call texi2dvi, which then breaks, making the whole build breaks, and it would be not easy to change the build of these

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Buggy Need Root All The Time?

Feb 27, 2010

I have a buggy install, 11.2 and I need to be root to look around/change/fix I'm tired of being asked twice for a security code for any change/tweak/install/config when im trying to fix the issue. Which of your multiple applications do I use to make myself root? Yast doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I have eth config issues, grub issues, application update issues, security config issues, right now i just want security login issues to be fixed so im not asked a thousand times for my admin rights.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Buggy During Request?

Apr 19, 2010

I am experiencing real buggyness in firefox 3.6.3. Sometimes when I click on any button e.g. this form (submit new thread), I get no response whatsoever. It lacks that responsive feel. Might I mention that it happened some of the time. Its probably not because of the ISP because I didn't have any problem before when I was using Vista. Maybe it was because I meddled with things like this and tweaking some stuff in the about:config. I'm out of ideas.

Box: openSUSE 11.2 | GNOME 2.28.2 | Acer RS740DVF | AMD64 X2 5600+ | Radeon HD4670 | 3GB RAM

General :: Internet Timeout Issues After Resetting Password - Or A Heck Of A Coincidence

Nov 11, 2009

Owned linux laptop (running UBUNTU) for 1.5 yrs. Love it. No problems... until:

1. I changed my password, via System - Admin - User & Groups - Properties. (I just typed 2 characters on the end of the old User Password and the Confirmation password and OK'd it all.
2. Shut down laptop. Upon restarting it (only minutes later), neither the new pw or the old one worked.
3. Googled for help on another machine. Booted linux laptop up in recovery mode and used the passwd <?> command to reset pw (back to the original one!).
4. Shut down. Started laptop up again... forever more firefox runs like a dog. Normally (90% of the time) it times out before reaching a page, though it is trying to transfer the data.

Let's be clear about this. It was fine. The very next time I used firefox - minutes after the password debarcle, it was cac, and has remained cac ever since.

I've been whizzing around on firefox for over a year without any issues. There have been no changes to the router. My microsoft laptop has no issue with the internet so it cant be router or telco related. Though I did reset the router (power and phone line) just to be sure. It didn't help.

I clear the private data (Tools menu) in firefox regularly (daily-ish). That is the only housekeeping I do on this machine. (It only gets used for mail, internet and the odd simple OpenOffice document). There is stacks of space left (70 Gig). I'm not sure how to check memory.

Googled for help and tried some command to purge temp files. That didn't help.

I love my linux laptop, but currently I'm having to resort back to my windows one.

OpenSUSE :: Downgrade From KDE 4.5?

Sep 15, 2010

I'm using openSUSE 11.3 and yesterday I upgraded to KDE 4.5 from the KDE 4.5 stable repo. But after upgrading I faced some freeze/lock-up glitches which weren't there before. For example whenever I change the color scheme or style and press apply, the screen freezes although the mouse still moves around. I have to forcefully shut down to recover. So, I am thinking of downgrading to KDE 4.4. How do I go about doing that?

Here are the repos I'm currently using:

# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
1 | KDE:45 | KDE:45

OpenSUSE :: Downgrade Kernel To 2.6.32?

Sep 9, 2010

I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place, if not im sorry. I want to downgrade the kernel to 2.6.32 or a little older. I see the if I add the 11.2 repo I can install 2.6.31. Will that work though? Id rather not tank my system. I need to the older kernel for better support in a app I regularly use.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Downgrade To 11.2 From 11.3

Jul 25, 2010

11.3 has broken my Samsung mfp color laser. According to an Ubuntu forum, the problem is that the Samsung driver is incompatible with glibc 2.11. Since just about everything seems to be dependent on glibc, the only way I can envision fixing my problem is going back to 11.2 and waiting until someone comes up with a fix to the Samsung driver problem. Other than doing a clean install of 11.2, is there a simple way to downgrade back to 11.2, or at least the parts of it dependent on glibc?

Since I was able to use the update option to move from 11.2 to 11.3, can I insert the 11.2 DVD and choose update? Or, perhaps, is there a particular set of 11.2 repositories that I can add to my 11.3 repositories, choose the 2.10 version of glibc and have the dependencies work out properly? I tried adding the repository, but Yast seemed to want to change my whole KDE installation from x86_64 to i586. Is there a group of other repositories that would make the repository route work?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Downgrade An Update That You Don't Know

Apr 23, 2011

this is the first time I write! I am on OpenSuSE 11.3. I am using a very bugged code written by some scientists and I need it working, otherwise someone will kill me soon It was working few days ago and now it doesn't. I guess this is due to some automatic update of something that I accepted without caring too much. Python for example, or the Kernel, I have no idea so far. Now, before trying to understand what went wrong I need to know what I changed. My question is: how can I access my recent history of updates (I usually use Yast for updating)?

OpenSUSE :: Downgrade That Xorg-X11-driver-video Thingy?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 11.2 KDE 3 Initially FireFox was absolutely fine, But recently It became utterly slow. I searched plenty of forums and tweaked the about:config and played around with ipv6. Some threads suggested downgrading some x-video thingy coz of an update sadly I haven't got a clue how to downgrade, in addition all these threads were talking about rather old OpenSuse versions. I installed the newest Nvidia driver as some suggested it might have to do with the desktop effects, actually I just turned them off (literally just this moment) and FF ran utterly quick, hmm I would like to keep em though. Does this mean i need to downgrade that xorg-X11-driver-video thingy? I don't seem to have a downgrade option I can only update delete and so on...When clicking on versions it doesn't show any of the 7.3 only 7.4s. I kind of depend on some firefox plug-ins which is why I would rather not use another browser..

Debian :: Is Stable Supposed To Be Buggy?

Aug 8, 2010

I don't mean this to be in any way a critical post but I've recently switched to Debian from numerious other distros because of it elidged stability and speed. However I'm using the stable version and frequently have to reboot for certain things to work and frequently multimedia based programs crash on me. I've installed the repo from so I don't know if that's causeing any problems. It crashes on me multiple times a day. Now it's not the OS itself which is the problem I'm sure but more the software in the repos. However it was my udnerstanding that this software was pretty darn well tested.

Ubuntu :: File Operations Is Buggy?

Sep 3, 2010

Whenever I move files from a USB memory stick or external hard drive or any other such device the file only seems to transfer 99% of the data and often during moving file operations will freeze and an offer of 'force quit' will come up (although file operations will eventually vanish with the 99% of the file being moved).

Can anything be done to rectify problems with file operations?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Looks Buggy And Glitchy

Dec 21, 2010

Whenever I open a folder using the gnome panel (places,) Nautilus runs and the window looks like it was designed when the first GUI was. It's all grey and doesn't match the rest of the GUI at all.However, when I gksudo nautilus in Terminal, the window that opens looks perfectly fine and how it should look.Also, the messed up nautilus does not have a bar with File, edit, and the other options.

Ubuntu :: Buggy GDM - Sometimes Fails To Start 10.10

Apr 9, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10

Awhile back I was playing around with Plymouth and GDM resolutions. I followed some wrong instructions and screwed up my GDM. I have fixed my GDM, sorta, but at times it will not start or when it does the login screen has strange pixel errors.

Sometimes it starts fine without any problems or pixel errors. Other times I have to boot 2 to 3 times before GDM will start.

If GDM starts with pixel errors, I can still login to Ubuntu and the rest of the OS runs fine. Pixel errors only happen in GDM.

When GDM fails to start I get a blank black screen. Cannot enter command line. OS seems frozen and I have to reboot.

Ubuntu :: Appearance Settings Buggy On Boot?

May 25, 2010

Here is a description of my problem:I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop with the default Ambiance theme. I have my bottom panel deleted and instead use Docky.Sometimes on boot/reboot one of a few things happens.Either:1)My Ambiance theme loads, then...unloads?My top panel and all Nautilus windows turn to a flat gray "theme" as if I guess there are no appearance settings enabled. If I open appearance settings my panel returns to theme without doing anything else, but my Nautilus windows are still out of theme.2)My Docky bar never loads up and I have to start it manually, it then loads/works fine as if nothing is wrong.3)Both problems 1 & 2 combined.

My setup is Ubuntu 10.04 64bit running on an Athlon x2 3.0GHz with 8gig of DDR2 dual channel RAM and a Geforce 9800GTX+ video card. I had the latest factory NVidia driver installed and figured that might be causing the problem. I switched an older release of the NVidia driver last night to see if that fixes anything, but being an intermittent problem only a few days use will tell. I would not use the NVidia drivers at all, but I figured I would not be able to use Docky as it requires compositing to be enabled (which I was under the assumption were under the special effects that I need the NVidia driver for).

Ubuntu :: 10.10 On Samsung R530 Buggy And Freezing?

Nov 28, 2010

I bought a new Samsung R530 laptop, which is a 64bit, a few months ago and have been struggling to get the thing working properly since.I removed W7 and install Ubuntu 10.4, which I found was freezing periodically for five to ten minutes, then I installed 10.10 beta, finding that this too kept 'sticking'.I had hoped that the full release would have fixed the issues, but this too was slow, the mouse froze constantly and any video I played would freeze up with sound playing normally in the background.I have followed some of the threads here and none of these things have worked for me.

On my HP netbook, my old Acer laptop and my PC, everything works fine!!!I have since installed an older copy of Ubuntu 9.10 and this seems to be working fine. No 'sticking' mouse, no system locks.Its fast and smooth, just what I have come to love about linux.What has happened to the new versions of Ubuntu?

Debian :: Machine Acting Buggy - Fan Kept Running After Update

Feb 3, 2011

Just updated, downloads and install complete. I closed laptop. Fan kept running. I rebooted. Black screen. Rebooted again. Screen resolution messed up (800x600 or whatever). Changed resolution in System/Prefs. Better, but the look is not the same as before update. The Gnome fonts and icons are too small, but the resolution is same as before update! My machine has been acting buggy lately...colored text in IceWeasel browser search field, where normally black. I have Firestarter running. How to tell if machine is hacked? I just logged out/in and all normal now. I still think the machine is acting weird.

Ubuntu :: Buggy Activation Of Screen Saver In Karmic / Solution For This?

Jan 4, 2010

My Karmic installation has two problems regarding screen saver activation:

1) VLC is set to deactivate the screen saver during playback, but the screen saver activates anyway.

2) Sometimes, when NOT running VLC, the screen saver doesn't activate itself at all. I've set it to 5 minutes, but after 5 minutes of inactivity, nothing happens. This ALWAYS occurs while running a java web applet, and SOMETIMES also occurs when no software is running at all.

I've googled this to death, but can't find any information relevant to this problem.

CentOS 5 :: KDE Keyboard / Mouse Freeze / Buggy When Alt-tab'ing / Switching Between Windows

Jun 13, 2010

I'm a long time user of CentOS 5 w/KDE 3.5. I have always had this problem to various degrees no matter what installation of CentOS 5 I'm currently on. This same hardware does not exhibit the same symptoms with another OS.The problem is I regularly have many konsole instances open. I alt-tab between them frequently. Inevitably a random alt-tab will freeze the keyboard and the mouse won't be able to click anything although I can move the mouse cursor around. I can't type anything. It seems to have some sort of timeout and it always come back to responsiveness.

I alleviated this problem (I think) by switching keyboards, installing the nvidia driver instead of the nv driver, shutting down all non-essential services.I have seen these symptoms on every system I have installed CentOS 5 where KDE 3.5 was also installed. Very different hardware setups each time.Has anyone else run into similar symptoms?I'm surprised that it's just CentOS 5 w/KDE 3.5 that exhibits this behaviour on the same hardware where other operating systems (gentoo, suse, etc.) did not exhibit these symptoms.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Does Not Work + Printer Drivers So Buggy + MP3 Players And Digital Cameras Not Work?

Jul 7, 2010

I wanted some input on chronic problems with Ubuntu:

1. Why does wireless almost never work right on Ubuntu?

2. Why, when Ubuntu just decides to turn off my wireless card, can I not just turn it back on?

3. Why do tar balls almost never unpack right?

4. Why are printer drivers so buggy?

5. Why do my MP3 players and digital cameras not work with Ubuntu?

I spent 3 hours last night trying to unpack a tar.bz2 file so I can run my Ralink network card. It worked fine until my son unplugged my computer. Now my card is disconnected and it will not reconnect. When I check forums no one has a simple answer for something as simple as turning a network card back on. On my Apple, it's simple: click my wireless icon and hit "on." tell me an easy way to just turn my wireless card back on, it would renew my faith a little in Linux.

Fedora Networking :: Recently "saw The Light" And Realized That Was Becoming A Buggy Overly-social Joke Of A Distro?

Dec 25, 2010

I recently "saw the light" and realized that ubuntu was becoming a buggy overly-social joke of a distro, and i found that fedora seemed to fix most of my issues with making my laptop run well.Samba was not one of them.Anyway, I installed samba, check. (I also installed the graphical utility). I checked off samba and the client in the firewall. check. I used the utility (system-config-samba?) to switch the workgroup over. did not want to access my fileserver at first; it saw it but as soon as i tried to mount and open it, it timedout and gave me the "unable to mount location" "Failed to retrieve share list from server" error. the next day it worked perfectly. now it is back to not working. it also is not working on my main rig (but it has a faulty hard disk so it will be out for a while).
