OpenSUSE :: How To Upgrade To Latest Sun VirtualBox (CLI Method)
Feb 13, 2010
Make sure you have the Sun VirtualBox repository installed and enabled.
If not, you can download this file [URL] and copy it in the directory /etc/zypp/repos.d on your system.
refresh this repository (only needed if autorefresh is turned off for this repo)
(sudo) zypper ref virtualbox
upgrade to the latest Sun VirtualBox
(sudo) zypper up -r virtualbox
recompile the VirtualBox kernel module
(sudo) service vboxdrv setup
Done! No need to reboot.
# rpm -qa | grep VirtualBox
before -> VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.2_56127_openSUSE111-1.x86_64
after -> VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.4_57640_openSUSE111-1.x86_64
I'm looking to upgrade squid 3.0.x to the latest version 3.1.x. Is there a way of doing it without losing the current configuration ? The installed version was done using the binary package (rpm) and not compiled from a tar package.
epositories/Virtualization:/VirtualBox_backports/openSUSE_11.4_Update_standard repo the usb support was working but after the upgrade it is not working any more, note that I removed the old version of the extension pack to install the new one "VirtualBox 4.1.2 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack"
This has got me stumped. I expected to do /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup after the upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 but the command fails. The log is (it seems to repeat so I only quote the final bits to make it fit into the wordcount limit):
Code: make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/184.108.40.206-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules
I cant update php in my RHEL Server 5.1 using yum. I am using RHEL Server 5.1 and I cant use yum to upgrade my php. Other site told me that use wget to solve this problem. How to use wget to upgrade php? This is my first time to handle linux server..
I will be version-upgrading a friends (Ubuntu only) laptop very soon. It is 9.04 now and the new version will be (ideally) 10.04.1 The machine has a large unused area on the hard drive and who has known this situation was to use the uncommitted area to do a complete new install of 10.04.1, leaving the 9.04 unchanged (useful insurance). Then, copy, paste (?) the /home directory from the 9.04 into the newly completed installed 10.04.1 overwriting the installed directory.
Opinions seem to support the notion that such a paste into 10.04.1 is likely to be successful and trouble free as long as the 10.04.1 installing username is the same as the 9.04 username with same privilege level. I would be grateful for comments here, particularly with any details, gotchas, you can see.
Observed on two host systems both with openSUSE 11.3 32 bit using ext4: When a big files, in this case a 1.2 GB and a 1.7 GB is copied from DVD, usb harddrive or shared folder into a Windows 7 32 bit guest system, the copied file is corrupted. The md5sum has changed and until the guest system has been rebooted successive md5sum tests on the same file comes up with various results... After a reboot md5sum tests show consistent results, but a sum different from the original file.
I'm so tired on how i can change the resolution of my suse 7.3 because i change my monitor into a wide flat screen.

I*had an update today and, since, Flash full screen is jerky and the sound comes as through a PVC*pipe.nybody has this problem?How do I find the updates that arrived today?*Is it possible to revert to a precedent version?
Now this no longer works with whatever grub 10.04 uses, I suspect it is grub2? How do I restore grub to the specific partition I need and NOT to MBR? I have a different boot loader and this boot loader is directed to Ubuntu's boot partition.... Since I cannot boot directly to Ubuntu's boot partition I am perhaps left with only LiveCD to do the recovery, right?
I am relatively new to the Linux System (8 months). I am having issues after upgrading the Scientific Linux 6 kernel from its current 2.6.x version to the latest version that SL6 has available. The issue is that once I install the upgrade and reboot, the internet becomes extremely laggy when scrolling on web pages, so much so that you get a ripple like effect as your scrolling. Which doesn't occur in the current kernel i am using.
Current Kernel is: 2.6.32-71.18.2.el6 New Kernel RPM update is: 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6
I wish I could figure out the problem but I am having trouble identifying what exactly the current kernel has that the new one doesn't that would cause the internet lag. I have read other topics with similar kernel update problems, but none have expressed an internet problem & only an internet problem from a kernel update.
I just did the latest upgrade in 9.10 via the update manager and it required a reboot. When I rebooted Ubuntu failed to load. In recovery mode it fails saying that it can't find my root device and has some suggestions about what might be wrong. I looked at the file it listed in /proc/something and the devices available by uuid in /dev/ and what's listed in /proc/something isn't in dev. I haven't made any changes yet for fear of causing worse damage. The shell it bumps to is ASH and it doesn't look to have much editor support to make changes to the proc file(ECHO > ?). Is there a safer way to get my system back online?
I'm running 9.10 AMD64 on a Dell Inspiron laptop with a dual boot to Windows 7 (For browser testing web apps/sites)
We have been using Ubuntu 8.04 with ltsp the server is Intel P4 with 2 GB Ram and the 8 client consist of either Atom or old P3 and P4. Now we want to increase the clients and want to upgrade to latest ubuntu 10.04.
I heard AMD does excellent job with LTSP but is it possible to have intel clients and AMD as a server. If not then which the best intel server I can have other than xenon (Bcoz of the price factor i dont want to go for that)
I'm trying to upgrade netatalk to the latest version because my Time Machine gets corrupted when the volume reaches its max capacity. How do I do it? I uninstalled netatalk, downloaded the latest package, made configure, make, make install (without any errors, just some warnings), but netatalk doesn't seem to run. I can't connect to the shares. If I install netatalk 2.1.2 via synaptic everything starts to work again. How to upgrade netatalk to the latest version on ubuntu 10.10?
Last week I could burn dvd's and cd's and had no problem. I did the latest kernal upgrade for Ubuntu 10.04 yesterday and today I cannot get K3B or Brasero to recognize any type of medium weather blank or filled. Looked on the forum and there appears a bug in the kernal. Is there a workaround? If so how do I use it.
I'm running 10.10LTS at present, I upgraded via the Upgrade Manager last night, Firefox 3.4 and D-bus stuff if I remember correctly. The system then gave the "restart now or later" buttons and I hit the "now" one. My system, an AMD 3800+ dual core job in an MSI mobo then shut down and, er... died. hitting the momentory action power switch gives an ocasional short noise but I have no power/fans or anything. It's a 480 Watt PSU with green leds and stuff I don't really need but the price was good, so I'm not convinced that it's dead... yet.
Is it possible for an upgrade to stuff the power-up circuitry? Maybe power management?
My next step is to swap the PSU to eliminate this as the "faulty" item. It leaves the Mobo, screwed CMOS and possibly the switch cabling/connector but it's all a bit suspicious. I'm basicially a hardware guy so that's the path I'm following. Unless the upgrade's written to somewhere it shouldn't?
I haven't had time to investigate further as I was dragged away shouting and screaming to a prior engagement by "she who must be obeyed".
