I work on a product that have to start automatically an application. Running Opensuse 11.2 So in the inittab I have : 1:2345:once:/root/Velox/VeloxBoot.sh 2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
In the VeloxBoot.sh, if I don't press any key, my application starts after a timeout. If the user presses a key I want to have a login prompt. Unfortunately, if I start /bin/login, I have a prompt with login, but once I enter my login, it does not ask for a password and it says wrong password
been using 11.2 with KDE on a Sony laptop since 11.2 was released always ran perfect suddenly I can't login, I get to the login screen type in password it begins to load my desktop, then fails and dumps me back to the login screen I can login as root, all my stuff is there (under /home/me) I tried changing my password, no luck I went to run level 3 and there I can login just fine seems to be something with my KDE profile any ideas where I might find some error messages telling me what's going on?
this seemed to happen when I was running "blender" and making the machine do some heavy number crunching, it actually locked up.
I've just installed Linix 7.0 which I purchased several years back but never got around to installing it. I installed it on an older Compauge notebook . At the requested time I entered the user name and password in the setup program. But now when I try to log in , it does reconize any of the data I entered. Is there a way to reset it. I can't even get into the computer to delete the installation and re-install.
I had automatic login on. I went to turn it off. Restarted my computer and now my password for logging in does not work. I don't know how this can be, if I had just entered the password to disable auto-login. Now i am locked out of my system.
i got myself in a really dumb position. i upgraded from 11.0 to 11.2 this morning. after restarting it loads up everything and then shows me a login/password prompt. i have forgotten what my login is, i know my password.
I am having trouble finding the option to change this setting in opensuse 11.2. I type in username: "somebody" password: **** How do I get the password not to echo the stars and show nothing when it is entered? In OpenSuSE 10.2 I used to go to Personal Settings > Security & Privacy > Password & User Account but this menu does not exist anymore.
The login screen does not accept the password for users. Only the password for Root. The problem is not in the command line, but check the password in the screen. I have tried to change the password from the root and it is still the problem. What I can do?
I am not sure if anyone here has any experience with Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux but my problem relates to that product.
I am running 11.2 openSUSE and after installing the latest version of the Kaspersky product in question, I went ahead and restarted the machine. At the logon screen, when clicking my user name to log in, the password box would not display.
I tried clicking on the other option and trying it that way and after putting my name in the username box, the machine just started thinking and thinking and nothing happens.
I also tried logging in through terminal service but it would not recognize my password to be correct.
I really need to log into my username since I have important files on that Linux partition. I tried mounting this partition in Windows since I have a dual boot setup but I can only view the folders of the partition and not the contents.
I can't login after the password-protect-screen-saver comes on during a download.The screen is black, the cursor arrow moves with the mouse, but no login window.I have no idea what is wrong but it seems to correlate with this combination.
Today I have installed Linux SUSE 11.2 . At installation, I was asked for user-name and password. I edit this correctly.
At the end of the installation, the system reboots until the mask 'user name' and 'password' will be displayed. When I edit my user-name and the password the system said, that the login is not correct.
First, I think, I have forgetten my password an do a new installation of Linus SUSE 11.2 . Whatever, the same problem ist still there.
It happens like 50% of my Suse 11.2 startups, when I type in my password at login screen and hit enter, Gnome do not start, i can only see the green blank screen,or sometimes it start to show only my custom wallpaper and nothing more, when i try ctrl+alt+backspacex2 and login again everything seems to work fine, but what could be wrong ? is it a hardware issue ? Moreover, sometimes when I want to shutdown my laptop and click the shutdown button, suse do logout, but instead of turning off the laptop , it brings me to login screen, clicking the shutdown button at login screen makes my hdd lamp blink and thats all.
I have setup a nis server and client. At first I didn't have a local user defined on the client. The client then used the user and passwords from NIS, so that was ok.
The problem then is, that when the server is down, I couldn't login to my client anymore. So I created a local user with the same name on the client but with a different password (after I shut the nis server down, if nis server was on, I couldn't create a local user with the same name). I then edited etc/nssswitch.conf as follows:
Code: # (like no NIS server responding) then the search continues with the # next entry. # # Legal entries are: # # compat Use compatibility setup
If NIS server is on: client has to login with the nis password If NIS server is down: client has to login with the local password (as fallback)
However the actual behaviour is that I can only login with the local password now. The NIS pasword doesn't seem to be used anymore.
hello i am trying to change my password, but when i type in the new password i get this:"The password is longer than 8 characters. On some systems, this can cause problems. You can truncate the password to 8 characters, or leave it as it is."my question is what kind of problem could i get and how can i change so i have to log in every time i start the computer?
I've created a /tmp partition on a server that I would like to encrypt in a fashion that doesn't require a password to be entered on boot because this server is in a remote data center. Storing the password on the server so that it can automatically boot would obviously defeat the purpose of encrypting in the first place. Skipping automounting is another option but I'd really like to avoid that because there are a number of other services that would have to be suspended until the /tmp partition is online.
I found this article designed for centos (HowTos/EncryptTmpSwapHome - CentOS Wiki) which seems perfect since it generates a key randomly on boot and that key is destroyed and regenerated on each successive boot. However, the script doesn't seem to work on openSUSE - it throws errors saying . /etc/init.d/functions doesn't exist, restorecon command not found, action command not found, etc. Is there an openSUSE-ish way to achieve promptless partition encryption?
I've been running openSUSE 11.2 within a VM using VirtualBox 3.1.2 with Vista x64 as the host OS for quite some time now with good results. Yesterday I went to reboot the VM and VBox made some comment about 3D not working and needing to install the VBox guest additions (which were already installed). After rebooting and seeing the openSUSE splash screen, I now get a solid purplish display with no activity. I've tried running "sax2 -r", re-installing guest additions, running the repair CD, and other things but this problem has not gone away. Aside from reloading the OS, does anyone have ideas on how I might fix this?
I request assistance to fix the following annoying problem: In SuSE 11.2, GNOME, the taskbar and menus are not available after boot up. Consequently I do not have access to applications which I urgently need for some work I am doing.
Lately I had to reboot a couple of times (by way of terminal window) in the hope that it comes up. Now, however, the taskbar/menues do not come up any more.
My default desktop environment is Xfce 4.7 (older machine). Monday I came back to work to discover a 17 GB log file in /var/log that ate up my root partition and gave me trouble running. I deleted it, which solved the problem EXCEPT that now when I boot, instead of the Xfce login prompt, I get an X-Windows login prompt. This takes me to a terminal (which apparently reads my .zshrc file), from which I can start an Xfce session by running xfce4-session. How can I get back to booting into the Xfce login screen?
I downloaded nagserver.i686-0.0.1.vmx.tar.gz - unzipped ok - my vmware player loads it up nicely. Unfortunately I don't know the login and password - also don't know the root as well. I tried searching the internet and this forum for the default logins and passwords but couldn't find it. It's a VM running on opensuse 11.2 and I'm stuck at the login prompt.
