OpenSUSE Hardware :: Changes In USB Device Access With Suse 11.2?
Dec 6, 2009
this weekend I updated the OS on my laptop from OS 10.3 to 11.2.Most things worked fine ... and quickly ... but I have issues with some USB devices.Printers and everthing that works like a Memory Stick, HD (camera, mobile phone) are OK. But after the update to 11.2 I can neither use my scanner anymore nor my Garmin GPS device. Both devices are listed with 'lsusb' correctly. But applications are not able to find/access them.
For the GPS device I do not know how to do more tests. The application (gpsman) that worked fine with 10.3 does not find it anymore. The Scanner is detected by Xsane or Skanlite and also the driver can be installed with Yast when plugged in. But a test fails with "sane_start: Error during Device I/O". 'sane-find-scanner' also lists the device correctly. As a normal user it complains that there is no write access for usblib to the usb device. As root this error does not appear. It can be avoided temporarily by setting chmod 777 to all /dev/bus/usb entries. Then 'sane-find-scanner' does not show any errors.
But the applications do not work.
I already added the normal user to the "lp" group as shown in the /etc/udev/rules.d/55-libsane.rules and tried to give access to the usb-devices in /etc/fstab .... all without success. As I have two USB devices (Scanner, GPS) that worked fine with 10.3 but are not an external HD (or similar), I assume that someting has changed with the handling of USB devices from 10.3 to 11.2.
I know that there is support for this, but i can't seem to find any appropriate tools. Let's say my widget is at 192.168.1.111; i need to open a terminal window talking to it. Then i can control the things connected to it (it is a bus converter). oS 11.1, KDE 3.5, various machines.
I have a fresh install of SuSE 11.2. I have installed Communigate Pro (Email server) and Webmin. From my workstation (on the same LAN), I can access the web interfaces for both CGP and Webmin right after the server boots up. But after about 10 minutes or so, I can no longer access either web interface. The server itself still functions normally. I can get on the internet with the server, and I can control Webmin via localhost:10000.
The only thing that allows me to connect to it from my workstation again is to either restart the server, or go into "Network > Linux Firewall" and click "Apply Configuration". What's going on that makes my remote access stop working?
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 built a new pc and want to have Suse again. Unfortunately Suse installation does not recognize my CD/DVD device. So I boot from DVD select installation and a few moments later there's a popup 'make sure cd number 1 is in your drive'. I also did try to load other kernel modules but nothing helps. The only drive which is always recognized is floppy drive.
Here are some details about my system: Asrock P55M Pro board, Intel P55 chipset, 2 SATA HDD's, IDE NEC 2510 DVD writer, BIOS is set to AHCI due to Windows.
I tried following: Use Suse DVD 11.0, 11.2, x86 or x64 Set BIOS to AHCI, IDE (compatible), IDE (enhanced) DVD writer NEC was used in my former pc and did install 11.0 without probs.
Installing from HDD is new to 11.2 thus I copied the DVD to a directory. During Installation I can select the correct partition but suse is not able to find repositories.(?)

I am dual booting OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows 7 both 64bit on my PC. I've got VMware workstation installed on both. I've got few virtual machines which were all created in Windows VMware and they're all stored on a separate partition. I can access this partition and all other NTFS partition from Suse but with read-only permissions. That means I can't run any of these virtual machines from Suse VMware. Is there any possible way to make all these drives writeable from Suse? I'm really hoping someone would be able to help me. I've got a lot of googling and have even searched this forum but without any luck.
New SUSE 11.3 install connects to network/internet etc OK with DHCP-assigned IP address. When I switch to static IP, I can no longer ping internal network, or anything else. This works OK with SUSE 11.2 on same hardware and (as far as I can see) same setup. Some diagnostics are shown below.
Firewall Disabling the firewall makes no difference.
Not using a network manager (can't see how to assign fixed address if I do - all greyed out).

We�re experimenting with deploying SUSE 10 SP3 systems and adding them to a Windows domain and DNS. Oddly, when we register in DNS, it gets registered under two address: the real IP address, and the address 127.0.0.2. Also, an ip addr command shows that the loopback device lo has two addresses: 127.0.0.1 and 127.0.0.2.
The above behavior is just on SP3. On SUSE 10 SP2, the lo device has only the 127.0.0.1 address, and the system is able to register correctly in DNS.
Do you know what the 127.0.0.2 address signifies, or how to get rid of it?
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
We have a SuSE/SLES 9 server that boots from a fibre channel card, using volumes from a NetApp filer.
We previously had the server booting from the LUNs on the filer, but after some tinkering around with the fibre channel BIOS, we have the situation where the LUNS seem to be mounted, the OS boots, starts to initialise everything but then stalls, saying:
We have tried loads of combinations of settings in the BIOS and fibre channel BIOS without any success or any idea what may have caused the error.
I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 and it runs great. However, I cannot access my 2nd hard drive. I usually have two 160gb drives in my system. one for OS and programs the other for data. I wiped the OS drive before the install and detached the data drive until after the install. Suse can see the drive but wont allow me access to it. i suspect its because i have used a new user name and password.
i m using Reliance Netconnect broadband+ my modem model is HUAWEI EC1260 and my operating system is Open SUSE 11.0 i m not able to access the internet by using the connection can anybody help me to do so.i ve tried wvdial to connect but its said modem was not found.
I have a sitution that I am trying to set up.I have 2 email servers that run on Windows: one is for internal purposes, the other is external purposes.The external one will receive e-mail from the outside world, clean it up and forward it to the internal one.There are 2 Windows Vista machines and 2 Unix (OpenSuse Linux) machines.Since there can be only 1 email server per domain, I thought I would:
-> set up a local domain with ALL of the machines in it -> set up a DNS server for the local domain -> set up a MX record in the DNS server for the email
For the external machine, just have a Dynamic IP point to the Windows machine holding the external email server.Does this sound plausible? Does this make sense?How can one fix it so that a DNS under Suse is accessible from Windows?
I have a storage array and one of the logical volumes stays at 100% utilization whenever any process accesses the volume. It is a 9TB RAID 5 array on it's own SCSI interface card. I have another 9TB logical volume in the same chassis, on it's own card that does NOT exhibit the same behavior.
I'm measuring the utilization using atop. The strange thing is it pegs out at 100% utilization for the entire time a process accesses the volume, even when the data being accessed is just a few kb. My users home directories reside on this volume so as you can imagine every user is impacted whenever someone accesses any file from this volume.
The only processes being shown in atop are nfsd processes and xfslogd process. Nothing has been deliberately changed on this system. The only thing out of the ordinary that changed is a user deleted several TB from his home directory a week or so ago, just about the same time this problem came up. During the troubleshooting process, tis system has been rebooted several times.
I have tried following several online tutorials but can not get to the CD ROM Drive on my SUSE machine from my Netbook (Win XP). When I try to map the CD ROM from the PC it tells me \Netbookcd rom (Netbook is the NetBios name and cd rom is the share in SAMBA) the mapped network drive could not be created because the following error occurred. More data is available I have been struggling with this for several days have researched the LINUX Bible and several places online but cannot seem to get anywhere. I have learned a little about SAMBA and SWAT but not enough to make this work.
I have Suse 10.1 installed on my laptop. I do have an ip address, ifconfig says 192.168.1.4, but from my browser I cannot access the internet. I disabled the Firewall and have Security Settings set to Networked Workstation. My system can be accessed from an other machine via PuTTY... I would like to be able to access the internet from this machine, but don't know what goes wrong here...
Ubuntu has GRUB and I accessed Suse's partition while in Ubuntu to copy Suse's new kernel id from the menu.lst and paste it into Ubuntu's menu.lst. I boot into Suse OK but, don't have any rights. "su -" gives me "su: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted". I can't open Yast either.
I have set up nagios on Suse 11.2 and it is working fine on the localhost. I can access localhost/nagios, <ipaddress>/nagios in the browser and it loads up the nagios webinterface. If I try on a computer on the network with <ipaddress>/nagios the request times out. I have tested that I can ping to and from both machines (nagios machine and the machine I am trying to access the interface from).Some detailsNagios is running in a hyper-v VM. I installed it through yast2. Communication is run via a switch and sonicwall firewall but firewall has allow all within the network.I have a feeling it's some apache2 setting that I haven't configured or something blocking port 80.
I have a Toshiba M400 tablet laptop. I installed SuSE 11.2 and have connection to the internet via internal wireless connection to modem zoomtown. I click on mozilla or konquorer but get a blank webpage. I've tried everything I can think of but have not been successful.
I'm new to SUSE. I had some virus issues with Windows Vista and decided to change my OS.
I have the modem set up and still can't get the internet to come up. I get the mozilla blank webpage, but I am connected to the internet server. What can I do to get full internet access if everything seems to be working they way it should except for the blank webpage? I know I must be missing something but what?
Also, how do I open Yast to use it? I think I opened it by accident and got some things done
My macbook pro stopped booting yesterday due to some file system corruption in the hard drive. I am able to access this drive through a linux live cd which I am using now but when I go to some folders it says "Could not enter folder /media/Macintosh HD/..." My question is how do I give myself the permissions to be able to access these files and transfer them to a network drive?
how to configure it. What I am trying to is this: I have a departmental folder housing two sub folders. The permissions on the parent folder for the department are 770 and the users from that department are all in a group based on their departments name.
One of the users who is granted access as a member of the group needs to be denided access to one of the two sub folders. How do I allow all users in the department into the first folder (this works already) but at the same time allow all but one into the second folder?
I am able to access internet, can ping other machines and can ssh into other machines. But cannot be pinged (it just hangs), and when trying to ssh into machine, it also hangs (no response)I checked the sshd daemon, it is not runningchkconfig --add sshdreboot, the sshd does not seem to come up.
I have a usb port problem. I am trying to set up printers to usb port. When II have setup printer to connect to usb. When I test connection, it prints. Any other part of printer setup, shows up in the Que, but will not test print.Seem that my usb port does not have permissions set up properly. How do I set up permissions and keep them setup?
