Sometimes my user list is empty on start-up. When it happens the buttons beneath the empty list (shutdown, suspend and restart), are not responding. As a work-around I login to the first terminal as root to restart the machine and usually my normal user account appears back on the list. This morning the reboot work-around didn't work any more..
During 10.04 install I ran into an error every time I tried to install packages, so I just skipped the step figuring I'd do it later.Boot up, nothing but the cd in /etc/apt/sources.list. Does anyone know where I can find the default sources.list?
I have updated my 11.3x64 recently and after updateI cannot log into any X session.Keyboard is dead but mouse is moving fine.I tried to change kdm to gdm - no result!All I can do now is - select by mouse "Console Session"and log in to common terminal. In terminal session keyboard works.I can't understand What is it?The most interesting:If I run terminal as a root and run startx - kde desktop is started but the same way - without keyboard!Hardware manager (YAST) shows: /dev/input/event0and shows type of keyboard right: AT Keyboard bla-bla-bla. (Common Genius PS/2 keyboard for 6$ :-))I suspect something wrong with my X11 but can't get what!I did not find xorg.conf in it's standard place. I have found only /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install
I was thinking of trying out the UEFI support that HP has in my laptop BIOS in the next few days. My reasons is that I get a custom boot logo... and (hopefully) a better boot-speed. What is the current state of affairs with the openSuSE UEFI/EFI install support on a empty hdd for x86_64 does anyone know? (badly worded I apologize) This may seem naive but I have struggled to answer this with most posts being about Mac's for obvious reasons.
Specifically, Do I have to have any custom knowledge on formatting the HDD with a GPT partitions or does the installer do this for you? Secondly, How well does the UEFI bootloader tie in with the config tools in YaST2? (I would like to have UEFI but if it turns into some headache in setting up the boot area by hand each time the kernel updates I will forget it.) I can safely say this will be a machine with only openSuSE installed as an OS, no need for any others or any dual-boot problems. This isn't overly urgent and I will dedicate (at least) a whole weekend to tweaking once I buy a new disk and install openSuSE on it. If nobody knows then I will dive in head first and report how I find it and any problems (and severity).
I get ubuntu 10.04 LTS installed on my PC and laptop , and I tried ubuntu one.It worked and I want to have a test, so I removed the two devices that already subscribed to my ubuntu one account, after that, I found I can't get them subscribed back.Everytime I start ubuntu one preference , I'll get the error message: got empty result for devices list.How can I add my two devices back to my ubuntu one account (I googled a lot and found that someone pointed that delete the ubuntu one's key will work, so if this is the right solution, how to delete it?
I've always used empathy as an MSN client and everything has always worked fine. Since a week ago (or something more) my on-line contact list has become empty, all of my contacts are marked as off-line. I checked at meboo and I had a lot of on-line contacts, so it must be an empathy issue. I wouldn't want to change messaging client, I like the way empathy integrates the gnome desktop.
Is there anyway to prevent a user from being able to logon at a machine (Terminal and XWindows) but allow that user to logon remotely using SSH? This user is for remote capture of logs only - on a private network (no internet access).
I have a shared folder that has it's access restricted to certain users on a file server at work. Currently when I try to add a user I follow this process: Right click the Folder, go to Properties Click the "Access Control List" tab Select a user from the "Participants List" Click Add
For most users this process works fine but with one of them I get the following error: "Could not add ACL entry: Invalid Argument" I also tried a script that a former employee created which seems to employ this command: setfacl -m u:<USER>:rw- <PATH> Running the command with the correct user and path returns a similar "Invalid Argument" error. We're using OpenSuse 10.2.
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 have a mysterious filesystem issue with openSUSE on an old machine. Installation wasn't very pleasant but worked finally. It boots fine. However after 5 or 10 minutes, all filesystems vanish. Most programs (but not all) cannot be found anymore. "ls" output is empty everywhere. "top" used to work (it was working on a ssh connection that I just lost). Now it complains about unset TERM variable. I was able to set it again to xterm. Now "top" is working, displays the running processes : mysqld, Xorg, icewm (my WM), nothing strange there, nobody is eating up the resources. I have other linux installed on that machine : Ubuntu freezes occasionally, mostly with Gnome, but it seems to be a totally different problem (maybe related to the radeon driver) ; Mandriva works fine so far. The two IBM 120 GB harddrives are quite old but the manufacturer fitness test didn't find failures. I also checked for bad sectors before formating in openSUSE setup. It doesn't look like a physical I/O problem. In such a case, it would crash or at least complain about not being able to access the HD. Well ... I switched to console but I didn't get any login prompt and now I cannot switch back to X. I can still ping the machine but of course not ssh to it. SysReq keys (although enabled) doesn't work. I guess I will have to reboot brutally. Last time it took me about one houre of pressing 'y' tp repair the filesystem with Ubuntu. I'm sure I will be back soon. What do you guys think about that situation ? I suspect a kernel issue with that hardware. Have you heard about similar problems ? I'm afraid I will have to reinstall 11.1, which used to work fine, on that machine.
Some details about the hardware : The (onboard) Promise controller and the SATA controller are not used. The 2 HD are on the first IDE interface as master and slave.
I gave upon 11.3 M4.Tried installation by text mode but there's another screen showing various USB devices status superimposing on the Linux text install. Returned to Live installation via Live CD. Installation completed > restart >autoconfig failed. Tried live installation again but Suse kept suggesting installing into one of the empty 2 Gb partitions. Also had problems with Gparted Live 0.5.1-1 CD because somehow the keys froze. Had to replace it with 0.5.2-1. I am installing 11.2 on a laptop but right now I am stuck with frozen "Creating cache files for fontconfig". This has taken over an hour and nothing seems to be happening. I have successfully installed openSUSE 11.2 on an older laptop and a desktop. Also experienced installing Windows 7, Ubuntu and PC-BSD on both types of machines.
I'm running Suse 11.1. MySQL is installed. I downloaded and installed the software for MySQLAdmin and MySQLBrowser, this was one software package so both got installed at the same time. My question is this; When I log into MySQL to use the Admin Tools it doesn't like my root password. So I log in as 'localhost' with the id of 'root' and no password and I get right into the main Admin menu. Why doesn't it accept the root password and how can I change the root login to need to have a password. Will just changing the password in MySQL Admin do the trick?
If you need to to exclude one or mode user from your gdm login window you must edit "/etc/gdm/gdm.schemas" and add the user you want exclude from the <key> "greeter/Exclude" (near the other user in <default></default>)
having a hard time mapping a drive from a windows xp PC to a Linux Share. I have edited the SMB.conf file to include the share I want to connect to. when I try try map a drive to the Linux share using NET USE M: \192.168.15.5pairing I get the following error:"system error 1326 has occurred.Logon filaure: unknown user name or bad password."I use a username and password that is valid on the Linux server and has access to the Share.
I am using Empathy messenger 2.32.1 on Ubuntu 10.10. The issue I have is that try as I may, I cannot get the 'ungrouped' list empty i.e. there are always 6-7 contacts during every empathy login session that show up as 'ungrouped' even though I specifically grouped them into a user-defined group during the last empathy login session. For e.g. I login into gmail and facebook during session-A and classify all my 'ungrouped' contacts into relevant groups. I logout and log back in to session-B, and now I still see some of my grouped contacts go back into the 'ungrouped' pile.
Not earth-shattering, I don't suppose, but have noticed that since installing 11.3 (Fresh install, x64, DVD), the "Recently Used" list in the "Start(? Kicker??)" Menu, doesn't save applications through a reboot... ie, if I start Thunderbird, Open Office, whatever while logged in, these will then appear in the "Recently used" section of the menu, but then do a reboot, and the applications area in the recently used menu, will be empty. The "documents" area is fine, and shows stuff after a reboot, but not "applications"....
Looking for source code packages I have configured the "Main repository (Sources)" into the yast list of repositories. However when I select the repository view in th esoftware manager it shows this repository as empty. Other repositories work. I have checked the link to the repository to be valid. I have added it automatically from the "Community repositories".
Our system is based on RH4 and is using pam_tally and faillog to record failed attempts and to lock users out after 5 attempts. We have a requirement to provide a normal (non-root) user logging onto our system, with information regarding the number of failed logon attempts made on their account before the current successful logon (similar to the functionality provided by HP Protect Tools on Windows). My first idea was to add 'faillog -u $USER' to the bashrc, however by the time the bashrc is run - the user has been successfully authenticated and the faillog has been reset back to zero.
