OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3: KDE Network Management Failure?
Aug 2, 2010
I just changed my power settings so that my laptop would hibernate when I closed the lid... but now KDE Network Manager has decided that it will not allow itself to be enabled. I can get my ethernet connection working through YAST... but I *really* need the wireless to work as well... so can somebody *please* tell me why KNM is being so stupid, and how I can fix it? EDIT: I just realized that I should have put this in the Network subforum...
I tried connect to internet through iPhone (bluetooth tether), so I followed one tutorial... It said I have to change "networkmanager" to "ifup" in yast>network settings, and make some other changes... I did it, but I couldn't connect via iphone... OK... I put back all changes, also changed ifpu to networkmanager.
After reboot, Knetowrkmanager gives me "network management disabled" on startup, instead of list of my networks.
Of course, I google for solution, but without any luck. And then, I don't know why, I killed Knetworkmanager, start it again, and.. it worked!
But now, I have to kill it, and start again always, when I reboot my laptop...(HP Compaq 6720s, BCM4312, KDE 4.3.4)
I have an Asus EeePc 1001PX and on resume I have "Network Management disabled", neither wired nor wireless interface can be configured, the NM icon is greyed out. running ifconfig shows eth0 and wlan0 have disappeared completely.
I found 2 options: 1. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/555571 2. Network management disabled after start on 11.2 - openSUSE Forums
but I don't have the /var/lib/NetworkManager folder at all
I just switched to opensuse from fedora. So far, I like it a lot (KDE FTW). However, I am having a couple issues concerning hibernation and restarting.Whenever I merely close my computer but don't shut it off, I am forced to reboot. When I open the computer after closing it, everything stays black and nothing seems to work aside from a restart (no good, I know).When I restart, network management is disabled and thus I am prevented from accessing wireless. The only solution I have found is to hibernate, which for some reason fixes the problem. A restart however does nothing. So I guess I have two questions:1) Why can't I close my computer without turning it off?2) Is there a more permanent solution aside from merely hibernating after a crash that will fix network manager
I setup a server with vmware esxi 4. I installed opensuse 11.2 and I have successfully setup an internet gateway and I manually configured (static) my client IP. My question is, is there any software or commands that I could use to manage the bandwidth usage for each client? eg. only 5Mbps for 192.168.1.5, 10Mbps for 192.168.1.10, etc
I ran into a problem that seems to be related to: [URL] with an HP Desktop. The desktop has a Intel 82567LM-3 on board gigabit ethernet adapter which on a fresh install of 11.3 would not operate properly. The e1000e driver was properly detected however on loading, the ethernet interface was never initialized. My solution was to get the latest e1000e driver from intel.com: Network Adapter Driver for PCI-E Gigabit Network Connections under Linux*
I'm trying to integrate sendmail and openLDAP together. I've followed the guide in O'Reilly's LDAP book and my lookups are good. I think my problem is virtual users. What I'm trying to accomplish is that if an email is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and there is an entry in LDAP for joe then it'll be accepted. Right now, it'll only accept emails only for system users. Below is my sendmail.mc (most comments removed)
Code: divert(-1)dnl include(`/usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4')dnl VERSIONID(`setup for linux')dnl OSTYPE(`linux')dnl dnl ## I have a real one define(`SMART_HOST', `my.smart.host')dnl dnl # define(`confDEF_USER_ID', ``8:12'')dnl
After a disastrous foray into LDAP I restored NIS on a very simple network run by a very simple operator. Everything now works except for YaST on the NIS master. I can't manage NIS users in YaST any more. The option 'show NIS users' is now absent from the 'filter' button up in YaST "User and Group Management" So, after following the YaST route to LDAP there seems no way back...
These are OpenSUSE 11.3 boxes and the slave NIS server can't [obviously enough] delete expired NIS users on the master, although it sees them fine. Disabling or changing NIS server or client on the Master simply restores the 'wrong' settings - nothing is erased or cleaned. How do I clean up NIS controls so YaST sees it properly? or What do I need to do to restore NIS group & user control to YaST?
I use an internet connection with a proxy. I have set the proxy in Firefox and systemsettings so now I can browse the web and I can ping Google from Console. But when I start Software Management, it says "Cannot access installation media". Whats wrong?
I want to load the package madwifi under opensuse from Index of /suse/11.1, but RealPlayer did not function correctly. The reason why I want to use madwifi is that I cannot start my internet with opensuse 11.1 using motherboard from asus with the ethernet adapter from Atheros AR 8121/AR8113 PCI-E Version 188.8.131.52. When I compile the delivered Linux drivers I got the failure message "Makefile:61: Linux kernel source not found". So I decided to take rpm from opensuse within madwifi. How/Where can I get the corrosponding madwifi elsewhere?
We are planing to Replace our Windoz Desktops to Linux.So, I am searching for an open source software apart from spacewalk that can install a software or a patch in all the systems that are under my network simultaneously.
On my netbook, I'm experimenting with removing any panels or window navigators completely, and using synapse for launching applications. But I've encountered a quite annoying problem, as the only stable solution I've found for connecting to wireless applications is the applet used in the gnome panel. I've tried the Wicd Network Manager, but it keeps disconnecting without reason.
Is there another program for connecting wireless, or maybe a way to use applets without a panel/window navigator?
Got a problem with the plasma network management widget. Let's say I connect to a wireless network at my office called "Network A". I then go home and try connecting to my wireless network, "Network B". Assume each has WEP encryption. When I click on my home network, the wallet-manager pops up first. I enter my password. I then see that instead of adding a new network, it has "Network A" selected for editing. This happens every single time. What is going on here? I don't want a bunch of posts naming WICD either. I want to use the plasma widget because I like it. So what's up with it overwriting other network connections when you try adding a new one?
Actually I need the wireless adapter to connect to the AP, so both of the ethernet card should be disabled. Infact, when I try to access to the AP I must disable the eth0 card by using (sudo ifconfig eth0 down), otherwise the route assigns the default gw (192.168.1.1) to the eth0 device and the network is useless.
I have installed Ubuntu Server x64 in a VM (VMWare workstation) but have limited knowledge. Does anyone have steps on installing and configuring NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) on an Ubuntu server? I would like to set this VM up like a NAS box so I can do some NDMP backup testing.
I am replacing a home network - Windows Server 2003 and 5 PCs (XP Pro) with UBUNTU 10.4 LTS Server and client versions. I am keeping a couple of the PCs with dual boot until I can migrate everything over (Having some issues with iTunes, Family Tree Maker, Media serving, DVD decrypt and a couple of others, but that is for another post). It was great fun getting the server up and running using only shell commands. Took me ages just to get a folder shared! Migrating the data over from NTFS to ext3 was also fun given the limited space on the partitions.
I really only want to use the server for communal network type things ... central user account maintenance, shared folders for music, video etc and data backup. I don't need it to be performing server functions on the Internet e.g. web server etc although that may come later. How I set up central user management? All the PCs are currently setup with local user ids, and it is a bit of a pain to go round each PC every time I change something.
The server is not always up, so I need to be able to log into the local PC without it being active. I was using Active Directory on Server 2003, but I don't need anything that complex really ... just 3 or 4 users to manage. I have been looking at the setup tutorial at [URL] but am not sure how relevant a lot of it is. I have SSH setup so I can login remotely, NFS is working to share the folders, but that is about all I have done so far.
l am failing to do a network installation thru the pxe server. am getting the following error: failure to mount on block on block ..., please append the "root=" boot options.....kernel Panic..Not syncing....
As a strategy for learning linux I have decided to adopt using a lean windows based approach. I want to focus on command line machine system, network basics, and file management knowledge. In other words find out how desktop manager does it's business, so I know how to master my machine, but by and large once I have made my choices, leave it alone to do just that.
I figure I should know how applications are internally configured etc., but I also figure an apps GUI and config choices should take care of installations, and program usage as in M$ windows. Surely taking care of an applications dependencies are the responsibility of the developer, are they not?
I am working my way through "Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition (Version 1.0.0)" right now for an overall viewpoint. Can anyone suggest a specific source for a point by point explanation of the command basis of a generalised "desktop management" application (KDE,LXDE)? Better yet would be if it had some parallel comparison of the varied approaches taken by different distributions of linux.
A secondary question, is that allowed? Up to a certain point in Ms windows, a thorough knowledge of DOS 6.xx would theoreticaly enable one to more or less duplicate the actions of the windows overlay. Is there a basic distribution (or subset in all of them maybe?) of linux that would be consistent with that paradigm? What would be analogous to DOS batch files, or GM-Basic? Oh! that's 3.I am certainly appreciating the depth of this forum, and the breadth of knowledge among you forumite's. Reading it is time well spent.
I'm having intermittent network failure on my laptop but I can't figure out why. I have a cable modem and a 10Mb/s (bits) connection (at least that's what I'm paying for). The modem is connected to a wireless router, to which my laptop connects wirelessly. Quite often my speed drops considerably-- sometimes as low as a few hundred bytes per second. Other times it fails completely. This will happen with just about any server you can imagine, including the Debian FTP mirrors in the US.
- When I do file transfers over the local network from my laptop to my desktop, they go pretty fast, around 2 MB/s. I believe my wireless card (Intel 3495) maxes out at 3 MB/s (bytes), so that seems reasonable. - When I download a file from the outside network, it usually goes pretty fast too, around 1 MB/s, which is close to my limit.
So why is it that the connection between the laptop and the external network is so slow? I've tried power cycling, but it doesn't really help. I can't think of anything else to try.
I am running fedora 14 and have tried to setup VPN access to work. I used the simple networking GUI program. Another engineer at work uses ubuntu and that is how he accesses the VPN. I think that I did everything right but get this generic 'VPN connection failed' message. I am trying to connect to a monowall firewall and have the IP address. Yes, I have an account but am just trying it for the first time. I turned on all of the options available which seemed correct based on the instructions that I had. I have contacted my sys-admin to try to find out what the monowall doesn't like. However, I am wondering if I might need to open an outgoing port on my linksys home router/firewall and, if so, which one?
I have been using 11.2 for a few days now and have noticed a few things that are different from 11.0 and was wondering if there is anything I can do to change them to my liking.When I want to install software thru Yast>software>Software Management I can install the software I choose OK, but it does not ask if I wish to install more software when it is done. The Yast control center stays open, but the Software Management window closes.I must reopen Software Management to do more.It is a small problem, yes, but annoying to me.Is there anyway to set it up so that it will ask if I wish to install more?
I have selected to power down the monitor after 30 minutes, and suspend the computer after an hour. It does not work. With Beagle not running (more below), the monitor powers down after 30 minutes as expected. But then later (probably after an hour?) it powers up again and stays that way. Not exactly what I envisioned.I have removed Beagle from the set of running processes. The process list ("ps ax") shows Beagle as a serious consumer of CPU time, far more than any other process. (At termination it was at 500:00; the next most hungry process was /usr/bin/Xorg at 10:00. Most barely get over 0:01.) It introduces these problems:
1. after some amount of system idle time (it is about 5 - 10 minutes) Beagle starts consuming vast wodges of CPU time. I have dual core AMD 5200; both CPUs run up to about 70% usage until I do anything, like move the mouse. Then the usage drops back to the usual 5 - 10%. 2. When Beagle is thrashing the CPUs, the power management monitor thinks the system is busy. And powers down nothing.
this is my first post the problem i faced is when i open package managment in yast it is showing error message "accessing package management failed" system management is locked by the application with pid 3934(/usr/sbin/packagekitd) close the application before trying again
