OpenSUSE Install :: Geeko No Longer Shown At Boot?

Jan 16, 2011

I updated my GRUB config. I reordered some menu items and set openSUSE as default OS.When I boot into openSUSE, I am no longer greeted by Geeko when openSUSE is loading. I only see text from the boot procedure scroll by like it's still the 90s. While there's a certain coolness in seeing openSUSE switch to runlevel 5 and all that jazz, I want my chameleon back.A few weeks ago, I configured openSUSE to boot with flag vga=0x3ef so that it would boot with my preferred resolution immediately. This used to work fine. Since this morning, openSUSE crashes when X is attempting to start. I can still boot into openSUSE by removing that flag, but even then I still don't see the chameleon.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Longer Get GRUB's Boot Screen

Jan 28, 2010

I've run into a strange problem recently. My primary OS right now is Windows 7, and OpenSUSE is secondary. I had GRUB as the bootloader, and everything seemed fine, but I ran into one problem in Windows 7: one program refused to work correctly with ATI forced anti-aliasing on, but it is needed by others (or else edges look jagged).So I decided to install ATI Tray Tools. But it seems that Windows 7 is being evil and won't let install drivers that their creators didn't pay Microsoft for (thank goodness that's not the case in Linux). That means I had to use a driver overrider program, and that means that it had to change the Windows 7 BCD options. And that's where bootloaders kick in. It seems that Windows 7 is too lazy to check for its BCD on other than active partitions, so it doesn't allow the overrider to function.

So what I did was change GRUB to boot Windows 7 with makeactive flag. The problem now is - it won't deactivate! I no longer get GRUB's boot screen, it just boots to BCD directly. So my question is - is there a way to deactivate (or, rather, reactivate the /boot partition) after Windows 7 shuts down or restarts automatically? Obviously I don't want to use GPartEd each time I want to boot to Linux.

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu No Longer Shows In Boot Options

Mar 10, 2011

Everything went fine but whenever I rebooted, Ubuntu 10.10 was not an option in the boot list. However, Windows shows up and boots just fine. I am currently tri booting (not sure if that's the correct term) Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.10, and OpenSuse each on a hard drive of their own. In the dolphin file manager I can still see all the files for Ubuntu so I know it was not partitioned over or deleted.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can No Longer Boot Into 11.4 After Updating NVIDIA Drivers

Apr 24, 2011

Basically everything was going fine, and i was enjoying the OpenSuse experience, then downloaded djl (Games Launcher) , installed some games and found that i had a very very very bad frame rate (about 1FPS), and my GPU is a NVIDIA GTS250 (1GB), and runs most games flawlessly under m$, so i went about installing the graphics drivers for my card. I followed the instructions and was under the assumption that i installed the correct ones, but now i cannot boot into any graphical interface. I think that it should be a graphics issue, as this was one of the few things done before rebooting. I have tried booting into the normal mode, and the failsafe, I have read many other "Not booting'' posts, and have tried their solutions without success, there include: Changing the boot parameters Logging in and manually trying to boot up the gui (init 3.... init 5... etc)

When the computer tries to load up OpenSuse in normal mode, it comes up with the normal loading screen, and then about 90% of the way it stops for about 30 seconds, and then switches over to a CLI, asking for a login, going through the log a couple of things fail, did have these noted down (but cannot find and will post along with other commands that i am asked to do) I want to try and avoid a reinstall as it took me a long time to get the WiFi card working.

OpenSUSE Install :: EXT4 And Power Outage - No Longer Mount At Boot-up

Sep 24, 2010

Due to a power outage, my EXT4 file systems (which contain /usr and /opt) no longer mount at boot-up. They are, however, seen by disk utility in Knoppix, so I assume the data is still there and that it's just matter of making a connection to it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Longer Access LUKS Encrypted Volumes?

Aug 26, 2011

I've had everything but /boot on LVM LUKS encryption since I installed 11.4 on my netbook. Suddenly it won't accept my password and boot. Nothing had been updated since the last successful boot. The only possibly different thing that occurred was that I had plugged in my Android phone to charge before it booted up. Anyway, the specific error it gives when I enter the password (and I'm absolutely sure it's the correct password):

No key available with this passphrase.
Here is everything else on the screen:

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu Grub2 No Longer Detected 11.3 After Online Update

Jan 6, 2011

I was using tripleboot system in one hard drive. That included Windows 7,Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. And yesterday I decided to added openSUSE 11.3 at another partition. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 grub2 as bootloader.

At first there was no problem. All OS detected well, but after opeSUSE online updates last night my openSUSE partition won't boot. First, at boot I chose openSUSE and it said "Boot kernel first" and nothing happens. And then I boot to ubuntu and ran update-grub then I saw grub no longer detected openSUSE partition.

Fedora Hardware :: Laptop External DVI Shown Twice Causing Boot?

Jun 18, 2010

I'm having the weirdest thing with F13. I HAD a HP 8430 with docking station and external 22" monitor. Worked well, using the RADEONHD drivers. Now I have a HP 8530p laptop. At startup, as soon as the login would show, the screen (both laptop lid and external display) go black. To resolve, I have to disconnect the DVI connector to be able to see the login screen. After initialization of the laptop display (showing login screen) I can connect the DVI connector again.

When I'm logged in and have the DVI connector connected again, I go to GNOME monitor preferences and see, besides my laptop display, my external display, not once but TWICE. if I enable the wrong one, my screen goes black again. If I enable the right one, my external display works as expected. I made sure that the monitor is connected only ONCE with DVI.

I'm using a freshly installed F13 with the default setup, so RADEONHD is being used. My laptop has the following video device (from lspci): 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3650. The bad thing is I don't know where to go for analysis to get this fixed... any hints?

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Vista - No Hard Drives Or Partitions Are Shown

Feb 9, 2009

i'm tying to dual boot Vista64 (already installed) and Fedora 10 x86_64. I am running a Dell XPS 410 running 2 sata hard drives raid 0 (ICH8DH). I started the process by shrinking my C drive on disk0 leaving 64.45GB of unallocated space. Next I rebooted into Fedora install DVD and when i get to blue graphical install screen i get message asking if my drive is GPT and if it is it may be corrupted. I click NO, and it comes up with a message telling me i have to initialize my drive if i want to use it ( have to click NO twice) and if i do it i will lose all my data.

i can click no and keep proceding through the install until i get to the partition setup screen. No hard drives or partitions are shown. I've tried googling the problem and get bits of pieces of information scattered in different parts but nothing conclusive to my problem i think. As far as my background of knowledge goes, I'm new to the linux community but give me a thorough guide and i'll do fine (i hope). I've been using fedora on a separate laptop for 2 days now .

Ubuntu :: Can No Longer Boot To XP On Dual Boot Computer

Mar 1, 2011

I have (had) a dual boot computer;Win XP and Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit.I decided it was necessary to enlarge my Root and Home Partitions. Using the instructions I successfully enlarged the partitions and restored 10.10 (I used the copy command suggested by Irony). However when I boot the computer it boots to Ubuntu but no longer gives me the option of going into XP(it is not listed in Grub menu). Is there a fairly straightforward way of getting XP back on the Grub menu so I can boot to XP again?

I'm running openSUSE 11.2 kde on msi wind u123. Everything runs fine except that whenever i try to shutdown or restart system i see both splash background and the rolling text. I think i should only see the splash with the progress bar until shutting down finishes. But for no apparent reasons i see both which is very annoying.

It might help that i changed the splash screen to a custom one. Here is the one i use and i followed every single instruction.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Install - No Grub Shown On Bootup

May 4, 2011

Have just installed Ubuntu 11.04, the system is to dual boot with XP.Ubuntu is installed, have been into it and it seems to be working fine. However, when I bootup the computer I get no "Grub!" [Grub is now going to take over the boot process textual alert]. And, once the system gets past that screen, there is no list of Operating Systems to boot choices. Just boots straight into Ubuntu - always.

Solved that by installing 'Startup Manager' (which I knew about from slight previous exposure to Linux) and set the default operating system to Windows XP - this means that now I can't get into Ubuntu.How do I get Grub to show that 'Grub alert'? And how do I get Grub to offer choices of OS to boot in to?

However, when I try to access to the Parental Control (System - Administration - Parental Control) and after writing my password, it does not shown anything. Nor any windows not any configuration.

I am using Lucid Lynx I386.

Do you know any parental control which could block programs execution (like games, instant messengers, browsers...), could have web filtering and could have spending time control?
