OpenSUSE Install :: 10.3 Official Page Doesn't Work
Aug 23, 2010
I would like to have the opensuse 10.3 DVD for installing gcc. (I lost the original DVD and with opensuse 11 my laptop does not work) Do you know a webpage where I can download it? The official page doesn't work.
Dell Mini 9, 2GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, Ubuntu 10.04 UNR . At Panera, and other places that have free Internet access but require signing in on a page they load, I cannot get on to the Internet. Their sign-in page comes up on my iPod Touch but does not come up on my DM9. This happens no matter which browser I have running on my DM9 (I have Firefox and Chromium). And since I can't sign in, I don't get onto the Internet. Initially I am connected to their router and the signal is strong but because I don't sign in (I'm assuming here), I am disconnected. What do I need to do to see their sign-in page so I can get connected. At locations that have no sign-in pages I have no problems whether or not a password is required.
I'm trying to print a PDF from Evince it don't work at all...
When I try to print in grayscale it send a blank paper to the printer...When I try to print anything in color I can't change the margin of the paper, it always put like ZERO margin and the text go throw the end of the paper.
The paper size is A5 (Half A4) and the printer is in LAN in a Windows computer.
It's me or when I print in grayscale it print faster? So, it's an update or something? Because last time I printed from Ubuntu (like a month ago) it printed perfectly OK in grayscale (I don't know about the margin).
As stated, NO USB functions, not at all, the light on the mouse is on, but it does not move on screen, the PS2 keyboard does not function either. Nothing that would allow you to install it, works at all. I am absolutely shocked not one single person on here has mentioned this.
The last time I tried OpenSuse was version 10, it installed without issue, I noted the installer as the nicest one in the Linux world I had seen to date, only to be utterly let down by this USB fumble.I have Legacy USB support, Legacy Keyboard and Legacy Mouse USB support on, that isn't the issue, and this didn't happen with 10 on the same system.
I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made
I've recently ran the Updater Applet to install any pertinent official openSUSE updates, but I got 2-3 (they vanished before I could click on them) popups on the bottom right of my screen saying that an update had failed. Additionally, I found the following message in the Updater's lower panel:
Code: This update fixes an issue caused by a previous yast2-ncurses update, which would leave some ncurses (textmode) yast2 tools crashing. - #569000: yast2-ncurses-2.18.11-0.1.1: crash of yast -i with a segmentation fault
Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.
Like a guy earlier today report a problem with Opensuse 11.2 working fine on his machine but 11.3 is not. I have somewhat the same problem. The default installation freezes randomly. I have seen this error before with Intel video cards but never with NVIDIA. Right now, I'm using VESA in failsafe mode and trying to install some drivers from this repo.
I'll try and find a fix for this. (Hope their is one)BTW, can anyone confirm when the official drivers for NVIDIA cards are coming out?
I've patched my kernel to enable my IDE-mode SATA drivers (ata_piix.c), and everything works fine. But when I attempt to create a Driver Update Disk with this structure, it doesn't work (though the same format works for SLES11):
I've been trying to figure out how to run/install openSUSE from a usb stick for several days. I downloaded the 11.4 .iso from distrowatch & used the following command in Linux Mint to put it on the usb stick.
It gets to the loading screen and get stuck. It has a small bar going across, that never finishes. I've hit escape to try and get some info, but don't know what I'm looking for and it's too much to write down. I did notice there were several I/O errors. I did check the usb for defects and it returned ok, and the md5sum was correct.
I've also tried safe settings which takes me to a blueish/black screen and stays there. No ACPI starts to load and then drops to a shell.
how to get this accomplished? I've installed many Linux OS's and I've never had this much trouble.
ps. I"ve read the "please read" pre installation page on here, and things just don't make a whole lot of sense to me.
I have one problem with taking screenshots during SUSE installation. I am using 10.2 version. Button PrtSc does not work and Terminal is not available during installation (at least I think it isnt)Do you have any idea how to do it?
I updated Firefox today via Yast, since this time it doesn't show any page.I choosed in Configuration no proxy.The sites are empty, nothing just white.I also tried a downgrade to the previous version, didn't help.The Firewall I deactivated for test in Yast, too.A new profile didn't help, starting as administrator either not.
I got into using screenlets on the Maverick RC and was looking forward to using them again when the official release came out.However when I try and invoke them from the Accessories menu the dialog briefly pops up before disappearing. It's not even on the screen long enough to draw the dialogs contentsIt tried entering "screenlets" at the terminal and I get this....
** (screenlets-manager.py:1741): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags' ** (screenlets-manager.py:1741): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowActions' as enum when in
i have noticed that if vista is not the active partition, hybernate does not work. it just goes black and then back to the user icon screen to log back in. another "slight" problem was that i was not able to apply a service pack. after restoring vistas dominance i was able to install the pack. is there any other work arounds for hybernate? even though you might not be interested in cleaning up after microsoft.
I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.2 and just about the only thing that doesn't work is my wireless internet. From my research, I should be using the iwl4965 or iwlwifi driver; however my system seems to be running iwlagn. I have no idea how to switch it as neither of the correct drivers can be found in my yast, and I've failed to find any information about this on the Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux* website.
using suse 11.3 and kde 4.5 I installed kvm, I tried to install widows xp, everything works well until when the windows cd restart, there kvm shows en error like no disk to boot and don't reboot to continue the installation.
