OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Boot After Updating

May 8, 2011

Yesterday I ran an "Online update". One package came up with an update available. Quite honestly, I didn't even take note of which package it was. Anyway, I applied the update patch. After that my computer wouldn't boot. Grub ran normally, and some of the drivers, and such would load, but just about the time when kdm would come up, all I get is a blank screen. Monitor says "No Signal". I have to manually restart.

I managed to boot into failsafe mode, log in as root, and then run kdm from the console. That way I can login. However, my computer is very, very slow running failsafe mode. how I can get it back to normal? also, is there any way to check the history of updates?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Boot After Updating The Kernel

Oct 4, 2010

Yesterday I updated openSuse 11.3 on my laptop. Kernel update from to was included. Yast performed fine and at the end it stated to reboot for using the new Kernel. So I did, but what a bad surprise!! Normally the Grub menu should have been updated, but not this time. Fortunately I know how to handle this, but not all users will be able to resolve this problem, so here's what to do if this happens to you: You will run into the Text console saying: Press any button to continue... Before doing this write down on a piece of paper the text lines visible on the screen, starting with:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi....... resume=/dev/disk........

or whatever it reads for your system. You will need this info to edit the menu and succeed to boot. Now press any key and you will get the Grub menu. The standard option will be highlighted. press "e" to edit that option. Next you will see the Grub menu lines

First press key "o" to add a new line, select it by arrow down, press "e" to edit the line. (In my case it was not possible to edit the full original line, but only the added options like vag=0x317) Enter the line you wrote down, but change the kernel's version number to the new one Should look similar like:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi.......

(it works if you only use the part before "resume=/dev/disk....") After finishing hit Enter and you will turn bach to the Grub menu lines. Now move with the up/down arrow key to the old line, press "d" to remove the old line. Next move to the line with "initrd /boot/initrd-", press "e" and edit the line so that it reads: initrd /boot/initrd- press Enter to move back to the Grub menu lines. Now press "b" to boot. After booting log in, open your file manager as root, browse to /boot/grub and open the menu.lst file to edit and change the kernel old version numbers to the new one. Save it and next time it your machine will boot normally again.

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 :: Updating From 11.1 To 11.2

Nov 30, 2009

Been using suse since version 5.x (yes that long). I updated from suse to opensuse 10.3 (sorry I am broke. Everything works in my machine: bluetooth, ipod, printer. I moved to 11.1 (I was not able to update to 11.0 at the time because when I tried the installer will go in an infinite loop).

In 11.1: bluetooth does not work, ipod does not work (found that the bluetooth stack was broken same with ipod) then I hear about 11.2. I tried to update (in hope that all the issues where fixed) Updated the system tried to boot and fails: The reason was that was using USB to try to boot a SATA drive. Which I can tell you will not work

Use the rescue system and I can boot the machine, but there is not a single USB (so the printer can not work) It can not see the video card properly (works only in reduced mode 1200x800 16bit) no sound (asound just fails). Tried to install a new kernel and same. I just went back to 11.0 oh well waiting for 11.3

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Shut Down After Updating?

Feb 10, 2010

A few days ago I installed Nvdia fx 5200 drivers and after that I had on my grub menu Opensuse Desktop along with Default. Since Desktop worked alright and Default would work only in terminal, I erased Default from Grub menu. Yesterday Update Applet warned about some updates, I installed them and had on Grub menu Desktop with Default. When I wanted to shut down computer, the screen froze. It works when I reboot but if I want to shut down, it doesn't do this, I have to make a forced shut down. How can I solve this problem?

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 64 KDE New Install - Updating And Application Dependency

May 6, 2011

I got a new hard drive in and decided to do a completely new install of 11.4 64 on my "testing/spare machine:. I have my dual monitors configured properly But I ran into two issues. When doing a manual post install update from the 11.4 updates repo I have one file that will not play happily named cronie. When trying to install the application wspr from the hamradio repo I get the following error for an unsatisfied dependency. I have the same application installed on another 11.4 installation on this system and it didn't choke on this file.

Jan 29, 2010

I have downloaded the firefox 3.7a which was a tar.bz2 file. After downloading extracted the tar.bz2 into a download folder. Now I can figure out to do from there. How can update using this firefox update. All the zypper/yast ect. only use my repositories that dont have 3.7a and I can not figure out what else to do. Google searches all just say use package manager. But how do you use a package manager for a file on your hard drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: Is Updating Process Different In Various OS - E.g. Suse And Ubuntu?

Feb 14, 2011

I have OpenSuse 11.3 KDE installed in dual boot with Win 7. Have used Ubuntu in the past and remember that whenever I started my computer with Ubuntu, i had a black colored screen which showed various kernel options. So in short I was sure that the Ubuntu installation had updated itself. On the contrary, whenever I start Suse 11.3 KDE, it shows me just one option of Suse

I have doubts, is Suse up-to-date, and also there is mention of KDE 4.6 on website.

But my operating system information is as follows:
KDE: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 3"
OS: Linux -0.7 -default i686
System: openSUSE 11.3 (i586)

I have also seen that on 10th Mar 2011, Suse 11.4 will be realeased. Will update/ upgrade of this installation work in this direction?

OpenSUSE Install :: Updating SUSE And Accessing The Repositories Through The Yast Software Installer?

Jun 14, 2011

I hope this is the right forum in which to post this but I am currently running SUSE 11.2(I know im a couple versions back, its a long story but this box has been in storage for awhile) but the problem I am having is with updating SUSE and accessing the repositories through the Yast Software Installer. When I open it I get several variations of this message:

Download failed:
File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium '[URL].. I think this must have something to do with an old repository not being up but im not exactly sure how to fix this.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Boot Hangs After Updating?

Mar 10, 2011

So I tried installing the nvidia drivers for my GeForce 330M using Jockey after I first installed 10.10, but it did not make it so my desktop was not bigger than my screen. So, I blacklisted nouveau by creating a text file which had in it:

blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
Then I saved the file as disable-nouveau.conf, then chown(ed) it to be owned by root, and moved it to /etc/modprobe.d/

I then installed the driver for my nvidia card, and everything worked perfectly. But after installing the updates listed in the update manager, my computer won't even boot to the GUI desktop, it just hangs. I can still access the command line, but when press <ctrl-alt-F7>.

All I see is this:
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
//dev/sda1: clean 170760/29409280 files, 5091535/117623296 blocks
*Starting AppArmor profiles
Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox

*Setting sensors limits
speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
*Starting the Windbind daemon winbind

And that's it. It just hangs there. Like I said, I can still access the command line with <ctrl-alt-F1>, but I have no idea how to get Gnome I guess to display?

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Will Not Boot After Updating From 10.10 To 11.04?

Apr 10, 2011

I have a problem. Today I updated from 10.10 to 11.04 and it looks really cool. However, I also have Windows 7 on a different partition. When I restarted after I updated, GRUB looked different. Also, when I tried to boot to Windows 7, the screen would go blank (like it was restarting) and it would just bring me up to the GRUB menu again. I really need to get back onto Windows 7.
