I created an Ubuntu 10.4 iso with the kickstart cfg on it, trying to boot it with the ks=/cdrom/pathtoconfig (tried even ks=cdrom:/path) parameter in VirtualBox but it refuses to load the file and just launches the generic install.
i should install a old version of Java EE, so i can write code for a old kind of webservice. Here's what happens:
Code: michael@michi:~/Downloads$ ./j2eesdk-1_4_03-linux.bin./j2eesdk-1_4_03-linux.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I looked for the library in Synaptic, but there are only newer versions of libstdc++. I couldn't find a solution to this problem i was able to follow.
i have slackware 12.0 and kernel 126.96.36.199.LILO was the natural choice off of the CD set to load Linux.now, i want to load windows into a non-formatted partition on the HDD.i understand though, that windows will overwrite the MBR and put NT stuff in there thus wipeing out my access to Linux .i can't find the thread that deals with where to move LILO so that the Windows installation routine does NOT wipe out the MBR and LILO along with it,
I am an openSuSE user for many years. My current installation is openSuSE 11.2. However, my first was SuSE 6.4 and I have been _constantly_ upgrading since then until reaching the current openSuSE 11.2. The technical issue I have been facing lately is with the kernel version of my current system: although it should be 188.8.131.52-0.1-desktop, as this is the one I have chosen via the online update mechanism and the yast2 system boot-loader procedure, grub shows it as preselected, the boot procedure in the end greets me mentioning this very kernel version, _but_ when I issue the command: uname -a in a command prompt, I am informed of using linux kernel version: 184.108.40.206-34-default #1 SMP PREEMPT
I am really quite puzzled, since I _cannot_ find any such vmlinuz file under /boot/ ! Could it be that my system properly runs with the expected kernel version, but uname mistakes it with a different one? Is there a way to determine the actual version of the linux kernel that my system currently runs with? If it's a problem with uname, have you got any suggestions that could potentially shed some light towards the origin/cause of the reported issue?
I'm trying to do a network installation of opensuse 11.2 on my ASUS eee 701.
- I've downloaded the ISO image, verified it with md5sum, and burned it to CD. - I've used a live CD and fdisk to create a new partition table on the internal SSD (/dev/sda) and a single primary partition of type 83. - I've booted the CD, changed the language to English[UK], and continued.
The installer then told me that there's not enough memory for a graphical installation. This is weird because my ASUS has 1MB of memory and works fine with a live CD, but it's not much of a problem because I'm comfortable with text-based installation.
The real problem is that the installer froze on the next screen while "searching for Linux partitions". I aborted after about 10 minutes of inactivity.
I don't really want to download the entire DVD because I've only got 4GB of SSD and want to set up a trimmed-down system.
Okay I did a clean network install on 11.2 on my test machine.Old gateway box but it had min requirements. It will load completely into failsafe mode but will not complete a normal boot option.The default Green background images comes up and the cursor comes up, but I let it sit for 30 minutes and nothing. I did a hard reboot, still hung on cursor and green back ground. Booted again but this time choose failsafe, boot up completely. Am I doing something wrong? I have installed many many version of Linux in the past never had a problem like.
i,m just about to install 11.2 from 4 gig dvd, what is the minimum size to be able to install system, I will be triple booting with Win xp Ubuntu I'm just after reccomended boot size I wanna share Home with Ubuntu, windows will just have 15 gig for a game not using the home hope this makes sense
Following a zypper dup and turning my computer off for a few hours; when I rebooted, I got a message saying, "error: you need to load the kernel first press any key to continue . . . " And then it goes back to the grub menu for of the same if I select openSUSE 11.2.SystemrescueCD won't boot it. I've tried to "repair installed system" and "rescue" with my openSUSE 11.1 DVD -- it won't even acknowledge (as it were) the presence of 11.2 or the system on the other hard drive (though it does recognise the partitions).The PCLinuxOS 2009 KDE and GNOME live CDs will redo the MBR of installed systems (at least, as far I know, PCLinuxOS is one of systems). In my experience, the 11.2 live CD won't. I was hoping the 11.1 DVD would. What to do?
After installing 11.2 and selecting dvorak keyboard during the install process was surprised to see that was still in qwerty. When then selected dvorak at session login, still wouldn't switch to dvorak. When checked loadkeys and other places in config files and system settings, all said dvorak -- but still could only get qwerty.
I've tried to load 11.4 first and 11.2 next. New HD New Asus/ Inte, Celeron 266 Mem 3g using KDE Everything loads but when I try to set up DSL I get message: This package needs to be loaded, SMPPD. [Click install]. After [Click Install], Whether I use Network setup with or without ipv6 option or Ifup with or without ipv6 I cannot connect to /download.opensuse.org. I've tried to load Kinternet but the problem is the same, it can not connect. Repositories are connected and updated through Yast2.
I just installed Opensuse 11.2, and have come across the following error upon bootup: the display manager screen refuses to load, unless I type STARTX at the cli line. the error messages read: failed services in runlevel 5 /etc/init.d/xdm.orig start returned 6 earlyxdm postfix Further, I am unable to activate the xdm service under Yast. Has anyone else run across this error? Not sure how to resolve.
I have Win7. I partitioned my C: and made a empty F:(97gb). I want to install 11.2 on F:.
1) At Sys Ananysis I get; The partitioning on disk /dev/sda is not readable by partitioning tool parted... You can use the partitions on disk /dev/sda/ as they are. You can format and asign mount points on them. But you can not add, edit, resize, or removefrom that disk with this tool. I click OK 2) New Installation, Use Auto Config 3) Time Zone 4) KDE (same results with Gnome) 5) Partition Based. I go to Create Partition Setup. 6) In CPS I get
I am trying to get OpenSUSE 11.2 working. Everytime I install it, it installs with errors but when the user I setup auto logs in to the GNOME desktop, the desktop never loads. I can get into failsafe mode sometimes. I've replaced the harddrive and installed it again = same issue. I've redownloaded and burned a different DVD, verifying the checksum, and running the "check media" option = same issue. I've done a repair install = same issue. I've removed the added Ethernet and modem cards and reinstalled = same issue. I've deleted all partitions from previous install and reinstalled = same issue. Currently, I just defraged the HDD on a windows machine and am running the install once more (one a completely different machine) but what's going on here? I need 11.2 for Clonezilla SE (not 11.3)
I bought it blank and installed Opensuse 11.2 Gnome 64bit as the main OS (using it right now). Using the "long method" instructions found on this website, I installed the Nvidia 190.42 graphics driver from the Nvidia website. It is working perfectly. My OS worked great for a while (love it), but now I am unable to boot up completely into Gnome. The bootscreen goes fine until I get past the automatic login screen for gnome, then the display stays on the default green background. My lights indicate that my computer is working, but no panels or icons load onto the desktop. After about two minutes, a notification pops up saying that I am connected to the wireless network, but there are still no panels or icons on the desktop. My mouse pointer works fine, so I know that the display is not frozen. I end up having to shut off my computer and restart it. Usually this takes two tries before the Gnome desktop completely loads and I am able to use my computer. I'm relatively new to Linux, so if I need to do anything "fancy", you'll probably have to be patient with me and walk me through it
I installed OpenSuSe 11.2 x64 on my PC.It's not work will:After installation, the system auto login KDE GUI.but when I reboot(or shutdown and open) my computer.

I have just reinstalled OS 11.2 but this time the 64bit system variant. I installed the real-time kernel and saw that the apparmor module reported an error and wasn't loaded. I have never looked into apparmor and only knows it has something to do with security, and thus I wonder if it is important to do something with this issue? I plan to use the kernel-rt and have more or less always used a variant of this kernel flavour, often self built. Though I can not recall having seen that error before and I have not used a 64bit system before
Now I installed Opensuse on my system which already had Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 on it. Whilst Opensuse's replacement Grub correctly identified Windows as an alternative system it did not do the same for Ubuntu. I've been tinkering around in menu.lst (after taking back ups) and I can't ever get Ubuntu running - I either get a Grub error 15 (file not found) or error 17 (unable to read partition). By booting on a live CD I can see that all the information is still there, I just can't for the life of me figure out how to get to it from Grub! Did Opensuse move the partitions around during install?
I'm trying to install OpenSUSE 11.4 (64bit with the server options included) on my Mac (Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz with 2 GB memory). So I have sda2 the OSX, sda1 swap, sda3 is the bootcamp (windows), sda4 (ext4) and sda5(ext5). I installed rEFIt 0.14 first, then I reboot with DVD on. The installation setup resized the Windows partition from Bootcamp, and create 3 other partitions (the sda1,4 and 5). At the installation I choos MBR enable and "/" as home enable.
At the end of the installation I have the error about MBR, that can't mount, or create the mount point? I'll double check the exact message. Anyway, when I try to load OpenSUSE, is not working: can not load the system. I tried to find on the installation menu a repair (I thought that I can find an utility to fix the MBR). I don't want to choose other distribution, because I used SuSE before, and I really like it, and of course this way I can learn more about troubleshooting a Linux installation on different environment
I just installed opensuse 11.4 64 bit. Compiz and everything was working fine on my ati card (mobility 2600) with the default radeon drivers. I added the gnome 3 stable repo, updated fine. But when I rebooted I get booted into the fallback with no 3d effects and it says "gnome 3 failed to load" What gives? The drivers were working fine with full acceleration. I know gnome 3 works on this card, I tested it on the fedora live cd just fine.
I have been trying to install openSUSE on a dell Latitude XT all day, and every time I tried to live boot, I got a blank screen. I finally decided to do a text install and I got it installed, but now I get the same result from booting off of the splash screen.
I can boot into text mode fine (still) but for whatever reason, it bombs as soon as I tell it to load the GUI. I have a 1.2 GHz Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, and an ATI mobility chip (2000 series, maybe?) I had the same problem with Ubuntu, and since I like openSUSE just as well, I figured I'd try it because I at least could do a text install from my liveCD.
Today, I was downloading some stuff from online. I left for a few minutes and came back to find that someone had hit my loose power cord, causing the computer to restart. When I completed the reboot (It always says "Insert system disk and press enter" after checking CD drives), and had it load OpenSuSE 11.3 Failsafe (Regular won't work for me), it loaded into Teal (BASH, Command Prompt, Kommand, whatever you want to call it). At first, I thought maybe I screwed up and told it to load into that. But, I tried again, and it did the same. I tried using Non-Failsafe, and got the same results. I am able to edit, add, or remove programs from the Linux partition, though.
