OpenSUSE Install :: X COnfig Error Startup?

Jul 4, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 5160 with a volare xp5 video card (only recently supported under linux most linux distros and OpenBSD)Thus far I have done graphics install of KDE based on 11.2 and -- froze end of install and at at the logon / splash screen dueing the reboot could not get to a successful run level 3 text logon. (commandline was vga=x317, I think if n ot it was closeInstalled gnome using text install -- first boot (vga=normal - (default from install)) succeeded at configuring X and started gnome.

I really want KDE so I tried again Text install == hung near the end of the install after printers -- I assume trying to configure XRebooted no command line parameter at all ( no vga=) -- hung at login password screen (blank)Rebooted again with -- vga=normal 3 -- and got a text mode login prompt and successfully logged in -- now I can not find the page that talks about sax2 configuration from run mode 3. This video card needs to be set for VGA I think maybe vesa at 1024X768 16 colors (I succeeded at this under OpenBSD)I believe if necessary I can probably successfully edit the x config file but I would like to try the recommended approach first (as a non-root user as recommended) -- can anyone direct me to that page I cannot find again. It discussed 11.3 x config recovery with a section at the bottom for 11.2 and earlier

OpenSUSE Install :: Delete .config Just To Login?

Nov 27, 2010

Well, I decided enough of the "cute" OSs and installed OpenSuse 11.3 as my sole OS.

I have installed three times today. The install goes well, no issues there, however, after the install, I run Updates and once that's complete, I reboot and that is where the trouble starts.

The first 2 times, (I installed with Auto-magic Login enabled) all I could get was a black background and what the Mac community calls the "spinning wheel of death". Well since I automatically logged in I could not determine if it was a System issue or a Profile issue, hence the re-install.

I first thought it was a kernel update problem, but hey, the system boots, so that didn't seem logical.

I had on this install had it happen also, but I (thankfully) was able to graphically login as root and delete my /home/jj/.config and /home/jj/.gconf (going by previous experience with a similar issue on other OSs).

I notice that after the install and during the update that my Desktop Effects turned themselves off. I know this because Docky tells me so when I run it. Another issue is I run kmahjongg or kbounce (Wife's Games) and the TitleBar is missing so this forces me to (re)run metacity --replace to get WM handles back.

Everything is stable at the moment, but I hesitate to reboot the system.
I have logged out and back in with everything being retained.

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting Suse To Rewrite The Config File?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a question during a new kernel compilation (I made a backup of my .config) file) However I ran into issues during the make oldconfig process and unfortunately I issued a make clean followed by a mrproper which cleared my existing .config file.
Since I have a backup of my previous .config file is there of restoring without changing the permission rights to file?

OpenSUSE Install :: Extract A Config From Running Kernel

Oct 17, 2010

I'm looking to extract a config from a working kernel..that much was pretty easy..all ya gotta do is "cp /proc/config.gz ." which will put it in whatever directory you're currently in and then do a "gzip -d config.gz" to get the config file.

Now...after that it gets a bit tricky..Linus says you should never compile a kernel in /usr/src/ because those header files in ../include should never change. He says you should extract a new kernel gz in your home directory and compile it there. I tend to agree (who am I to argue?). Anyway..whereever your sources are this is where you need to copy the config file...

Like home dir is "/home/dart". So I would put the kernel sources there under "/home/dart/linux". I would cd to /home/dart/linux and do "cp /proc/config.gz ." then "gzip -d config.gz" which should leave you with a file called "config", then "mv config .config"

Now here's where I run into a problem..when I do "make xconfig" I get this...

Tried to install the qt3-devel packages from CD but guess what? I ran into cdrom errors which is what I was trying to fix in the first **** place...catch 22 eh?

OpenSUSE Install :: KDM Black Screen - Need To Clear All Config Files

Apr 19, 2011

No more than 15 hours after a breezy installation and setup I somehow managed to stop the desktop manager from displaying. Once you boot into Suse, the loading bar goes across, a white flash, then a blank screen forever. I figured it was KDM once I booted into x11safemode and tried to boot the desktop manager, it recreated the situation.

I've tried un-installing and installing KDM again, however it seems to reuse the same config file. I'm thinking about deleting the config file mentioned, but I'm not sure what will happen when I install the desktop manager, if there's any setting up to get it to work with my setup, or even if that will fix the situation.

OpenSUSE Install :: All Config Files Need .conf" Messages After Upgrade To 11.2

Nov 29, 2009

I just upgraded an 11.1 install to 11.2. The upgraded system appears fully functional but I get many "all config files need .conf" warning messages during boot. See below. I also did a clean install on another system to compare and the clean install does not exhibit the same behavior so the warnings are evidently related to it being an upgrade. The system's working but I would like to understand why this is happening and clean it up. This system provides some key services to my networks and I have spent a lot of time getting this and the systems it interacts with "just right" under 11.1 and I am not particularly interested in starting over except as a last resort.

OpenSUSE Install :: Xinerama Config - Adjust Xinerama To Place 1 Desktop On Each Of 2 Monitors And Not Stretch A Single Over Both

Jan 10, 2010

I would like to adjust Xinerama to place 1 desktop on each of my 2 monitors and not stretch a single over both. With the current set up there is a problem with window placement upon opening new widows or context dialog boxes. I realize that I could adjust placement properties and select window placement with the mouse but this is still lacking in productivity. My monitors are not next to on another so this is more of a problem than it seems.

Slackware :: How To Save Needed Modules Config To Create .config?

Apr 9, 2011

I am running a server with a GRSecurity patched Kernel I've tried to optimize the kernel as much as I can and know it (removing options, not needed drivers and so on) and compiled the modules into the kernel (no loadable modules anymore). I've started with Slackware 13.0 and the default config for Still I am not sure what to remove/optimize further now.

My question: Is there a way to boot with a kernel with loadable modules, check which modules are really needed for this hardware, (do something like lsmod) and save the running configuration modules for a next kernel compile to be the default .config instead of writing them down by hand and search for the appropriate names in .config or during menuconfig? (Note: zcat /proc/config.gz > .config is NOT the way I want, as it gives me just the current kernel config)

OpenSUSE :: EID-belgium And The Config Module Are Not (yet) Available For 11.4

Mar 16, 2011

eID-belgium and the config module are not (yet) available for openSUSE 11.4. No big deal, I can wait as I'm sure it will be compiled once these days. Though, there's one thing that I'm interested in. The packages for pre-11.4 always required hal to be installed and running. With openSUSE 11.4 hal got removed as it is deprecated. Is there any chance the eID-belgium packages are going to be delivered without hal support / requirement? I can't think of pulling hal back in just for one app.

General :: Dynamic Ip Config In Opensuse 10.3?

Jul 25, 2011

I have comcast xfinity high speed dsl, with a dual boot win2000/opensuse 10.3 system. I'm connected in win2000, but I can't quite figure out how to configure comcast's dynamic ip address' in opensuse 10.3, either on command line, or in KDE with YAST (scream on the latter attempt).

I've looked up all man pages on ip cpnfig, but the problem is that my last internet connection was through a router with a static ip address, and I can't quite figure out the shell command from man pages ( I've tried dozens of combos like ip addr [change] {dynamic|on} etc. from what I could gather from man page instructions, but I can't seem to get the dev object and options worded just right), and I'm about ready to throw my monitor at the wall during every YAST attempt (and of course YAST doesn't pick up my dsl automatically and why it's asking for a comcast userid upon manual entry I haven't the slightest).

General :: Finding Config Options With Which Apt-Get Install

Jan 27, 2011

I'm having Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 on RMI XLS CPU. I have my libpcap application. If I install libpcap using the 'apt-get install' command, it installs 0.9.8 version, and the libpcap application works fine. If, however, I install libpcap (version 1.1.1.) from sources, the libpcap application does not work (does not capture packets). When installing libpcap from sources, I use ./configure command without any arguments. I believe 'apt-get install' installs the libpcap with certain config options which I'm not using when installing from sources. How to see with which config options 'apt-get install' installs a package?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Trident Cyberblade XPi Chipset Config?

Nov 19, 2009

I was having a discussion yesterday with a reviewer who appears not so familiar with SUSE. She was trying to install openSUSE on a 7-year old Toshiba laptop with the Trident Cyberblade XPi chipset. She found that after many struggles with initial installation, she was able to get a desktop, but it was small, and surrounded by "lots of black space".As a fix, she dropped in an xorg.conf file from a Vector Linux Light distro. Apparently it had some special settings based on bug-fixes Vector had contributed to "upstream code". I told her I thought this was a bad idea, but she insisted she was right and that xorg.conf files are "distro agnostic". Not unexpectedly, she experienced numerous crashes and lockups while trying to run KDE applications and abiword on this machine. Two questions -

1. Has anyone got experience with how to configure this chipset? She claims that it is no longer supported on Linux by the manufacturer, is "VESA-noncompliant", and is not supported in "upstream X code".

2. She claims she did not ask for help from the openSUSE forum because "it would take too long". I think her bigger problems were choice of unsupported hardware and choice of configuration rather than response time, but I wanted to throw this out to see if anyone had suggestions?
