OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Find Disk After Upgrading To 11.3
After upgrading openSUSE 11.1 to 11.3 boot fails with:

Could not find /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_SAMSUNG_xxxxxx.part_2 Want me to fail back to /dev/disk/by-id/........ (Y/n)

and then I am stuck in console-mode

when checking /dev directory there is no "/dev/disk" subdirectory, and no /dev/sdxx entries.

Booting with install-cd in rescue mode the entries are theree, and its posible to mount all disks.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - Specify Hard Disk / Cannot Find Repository
I am new to linux. I am trying to install suse 11.3 on my desktop which has following configuration:

Intel Pentium 4 processor 32 bit
512 mb RAM
80 gb Hard Disk

I made a 20gb partition on my hard disk and formatted it as fat32 for installing suselinux on it. I changed my boot priority and booted the system from the bootable dvd. The problems are:

1). Message is displayed telling to ensure that cd 1 is in the drive. I cannot make out what this means when the dvd is already in the drive. If I press ok same message keeps coming if I press back following occurs.
2). The installation starts and asks for language and keyboard type. Then it asks me to specify the hard disk and then a message is displayed that it cannot find repository.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Disk Seen When Booting The Disk In Another System?
My dual proc, dual core Opteron MSI Master2FAR motherboard failed, and I try to boot a disk, used on this board as boot disk, on an Intel based Gigabyte GA-965-DS3. Both systems are x86_64 architecture.

The OS is on both systems is openSUSE 11.1.

On booting the disk on the Gigabyte, the disk is seen correctly by the BIOS, but not by the OS, and there is no /dev/sdX; no /dev/disk/... either. I am taken to a login shell from the ramdisk.

When I just mount this disk on the Gigabyte (booted with the Gigabyte's original boot disk) everything seems fine. No suprise to me, since the disk was fine, and was unmounted gracefully and physically taken off the MSI before the board failed.

I think that the cause lies in the fact that the harddisk controller on the Gigabyte is different from the MSI, and the driver for that controller is not available at boot time.

I have two questions:

- is my assumption correct, or is something else going on?

- if I am right, is there a way to get this disk booting on the Gigabyte (or on another system, for that matter)?

You might want to ask why I want to boot this disk on the Gigabyte in the first place, since I can mount it and see all data on it. I have a reason for that, but telling that story would make this topic too long, and it's too off-topic. Most certainly I will get to that in another topic.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4: Install Disk Doesn't Find The Hard Drive

General :: Error Cannot Find Disk At [hash-code - Looks Like 0ace5f When Booting OpenSUSE 11.2 GNOME-LIVE (64bit)?
I am in the process of re-DL-ing the ISO as the checksums didn't match.

Mind you, that was with a shell extension in Win-Lose. Who knows.


I have the ISO (that I had previously) on a USB courtesy of UNetBootIn. All appears well until, quite quickly, I receive an error after the loading process which goes something like:

Error: cannot find disk at [hash-code - looks like 0ace5f etc etc, is about 12 char's in length.]Something very similar (but not same error I think) happened when I tried to do the same with my OpenSolaris or Fedora install. I.e., gets as far as the very beginning of the loader and then: bork.

At least one of them said "will reboot in 120 secs". Saves me the trouble!

OpenSUSE Install :: Re-install OpenSUSE From Hard Disk Using The Terminal?
I'm running openSUSE 11.3 and screwed some things up so that I can't install anything, including UNetbootin. So I decided to completely reinstall. I'm limited to using my hard drive as there's no CD/DVD or floppy drives installed on the machine and BIOS does not support booting from USB.

I found these instructions - Install any Linux distro directly from hard disk without burning any DVD - Just Another Linux Lover Blog

From the terminal enter these commands

sudo mkdir /distro
sudo chmod `whoami`:`whoami`
cp MYLINUX.iso /distro/distro.iso
Now extract Linux_kernel & Ram_disk to /distro#
Open /boot/grub/menu.lst
title Install Linux
root (hdX,X)
kernel /distro/Linux_kernel
initrd /distro/Ram_disk

Reboot and select "Install Linux" from grub. Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Creating the folder "distro" on root was easy and went smoothly. I can't seem to make the second 'whoami' command work, though. I copied-and-pasted "sudo chmod `whoami`:`whoami`" into the terminal. It asks me for the root password, I enter that and then get

chmod: missing operand after `holly:holly'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.

I didn't see anyone reply in the comments of that page saying they had trouble with it, so I think I'm just being an idiot. One person did suggest adding distro at the end on another page and it gets me

chmod: invalid mode: `holly:holly'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.

OpenSUSE Install :: Added New Hard Disk And Opensuse Doesn't Boot?
I've recently added a new hard disk and due to mother board controllers this new hard disk is known as sda.Before that my boot partition was /dev/sda3 and know this changed to sdb3.Whenever grub menu appears and I choose opensuse,it can't find /dev/sda3 .It seems that I should edit menu.lst or change boot loader parameter.something like root (hd1,2).But I don't how I can do this with opensuse boot loader.Though I could do this with CentOS easily.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install 12.1 M5 From Hard Disk - Error - No Repository Found
I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.

I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.

But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.

I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving Opensuse From One Hard Disk To Another?
Recently I was working on something on my windows partition (on the same HD as opensuse), and all the sudden windows stopped working and I got some bad sectors on my HD.

Now, my opensuse installation is on the same HD as windows, but I need to get rid of that HD soon because it's starting to get worse (and I think opensuse is randomly crashing because of it).

Is there any way to transfer my opensuse parititon/os to another hard drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.4 ISO Disk Install Fails
Have burned a DVD of 11.4 64bit and am trying to install alongside Windows 7. The boot from the disk starts, I get a SUSE splash screen and initial menu. I check install source (F4) is set to CDROM. When I then select "install" the kernel loads, but then it goes wrong. Whatever I do I get "No repository found". It's almost as though, having loaded the kernel from the DVD, the installer can no longer see the disk.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Boot Without An Install Disk?
Have a coworker that plays around with computers. He built a dual processor, 64 bit with 64mb of ram on a server board. Do not have the specs at this time. He installed purchased version of Suse 8.0 server. Using KDE. (Don't know why he went this route. He is not setting up a server.) His problem is it will only boot from a CD. He can take out CD and it runs ok. A friend told me that there is a way to check the master boot file, but I do not know how to do it. I am learning trying to learn Unix/Linux programming. I can do some commands in terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: New (sata) Install Can't Find Grub
My friend has had an HP Pavilion Slimline for about two years -- recently he suffered a power surge and had to replace his (dsl) modem and harddrive -- he can't find the Vista media that may or may not have come with the PC, so I offered to put opensuse on it for him. I used a dvd I had burned last July with 11.3 on it, and the install went without apparent problems. Then I tried an update, and was greeted with


Download failed:
File '/repodata/repomd.xml.asc' not found on medium


- []

That was bad, as I was unable to update. Then we tried a reboot and things got worse. Immediately after the bios info the message

Error loading operating system.

appeared and the boot halted. The drive is new, we wrote to it and read from it during the install (I formatted it as ext3), but the box can't seem to find grub on it at boot, or it finds it and doesn't like it. If I reboot with the install DVD in the drive I can get a menu and "repair" (I think that was the choice) which gives me a login prompt, which I can tell "root", at which it responds with a shell prompt, but I don't know what I can do at that point to fix grub, or the SATA driver, or whatever needs fixing.
