I just did a clean install of 11.3 over my dual boot xp/11.2 system and kept my home directory.When I booted the system a console box came up.I then disabled auto login and rebooted.The login screen showed two users, 1- Tom and 2- Root.When I login as Tom the console comes up and when I boot into Root the GUI KDE system comes up.How do I delete Root from the Login screen and make it so that user Tom boots into the GUI KDE desktop?
I want, when I boot up, to load and log-in automatically a default user. I get a login in screen with the option to login as root, I do not want this. How do disable the option to login to X as root and just load as me/default user?
I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:
I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:
/dev/sda6 Use% is 100% devtmpfs Use% is 1% tmpfs Use% is 1% /dev/sda7 Use% is 46%
So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?
Well, I decided enough of the "cute" OSs and installed OpenSuse 11.3 as my sole OS.
I have installed three times today. The install goes well, no issues there, however, after the install, I run Updates and once that's complete, I reboot and that is where the trouble starts.
The first 2 times, (I installed with Auto-magic Login enabled) all I could get was a black background and what the Mac community calls the "spinning wheel of death". Well since I automatically logged in I could not determine if it was a System issue or a Profile issue, hence the re-install.
I first thought it was a kernel update problem, but hey, the system boots, so that didn't seem logical.
I had on this install had it happen also, but I (thankfully) was able to graphically login as root and delete my /home/jj/.config and /home/jj/.gconf (going by previous experience with a similar issue on other OSs).
I notice that after the install and during the update that my Desktop Effects turned themselves off. I know this because Docky tells me so when I run it. Another issue is I run kmahjongg or kbounce (Wife's Games) and the TitleBar is missing so this forces me to (re)run metacity --replace to get WM handles back.
Everything is stable at the moment, but I hesitate to reboot the system. I have logged out and back in with everything being retained.
I have a computer with redhat installed that once it boots up it comes to an application login screen. I want to bypass that and get root access to reformat hard drive and install latest version of Debian Linux.
My OpenSUSE 11.2 is working fine as samba server, no problems, but I have a problem with KDM.My default init runlevel is set to 5 and every time I try to login at KDM (KDE4), the monitor goes black and returns to the login screen.If I hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to console and start /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon manually, press Ctrl+Alt+F7 to return to KDM login, everything is fine.What do I have to do to fix this issue?
been using 11.2 with KDE on a Sony laptop since 11.2 was released always ran perfect suddenly I can't login, I get to the login screen type in password it begins to load my desktop, then fails and dumps me back to the login screen I can login as root, all my stuff is there (under /home/me) I tried changing my password, no luck I went to run level 3 and there I can login just fine seems to be something with my KDE profile any ideas where I might find some error messages telling me what's going on?
this seemed to happen when I was running "blender" and making the machine do some heavy number crunching, it actually locked up.
Every account every option I try. when I login, it just cycles back to the login screen. I have attempted to do a repair install, but to no avail. it happens when I try to boot normally or if I boot into failsafe.
The graphical login screen is loaded just fine. Though very shortly after (a moment after the loading screen could be seen) it crashes back to the graphical login. And that happens no matter what wm I'm trying - gnome, kde3, kde4, e16, e17, even twm.
It happened after the logout after a zypper up yesterday morning. Looking through the list of what packages were upgraded (two machines, both last zypper up'ed last Sunday, checked on the second one after the problem with the first one), the only packages which might be responsible are kwin or qt4.
The graphics card seems to be fine (NVidia 9600), as it happens whether or not I use nv or the propietary driver. Also tried reinstalling it from the repo as well as using the binary blob from NVidia. Has been tested on Windows and games are running fine there, so it shouldn't be the card.
What is strange, is that when calling upon sax2 -r from runlevel three, the initial screen loads nicely, but sax2 crashes back to the cli once one presses 'Change Configuration'. No error messages are being printed.
Any pointers on how I can narrow down the cause (and get it fixed)?
I installed opensuse11.4 few minutes back. The install was absolutely smooth. I have dual boot, Win Xp and 11.4 now. But for some reason I do not see the login screen but instead I see a green screen with squares and stripes. Login in the failsafe mode is successful. How do I fix it?
Also noticed the following,
1) Initially the splash screen picks up the right resolution 1024*768 and then it changes it to a higher resolution. This I think I can fix, because I had faced a similar problem with 11.3 as well.
I have a dual-boot system with windows xp and suse 11.2. The last time tried to enter to suse i couldn't login to my account ,only as root. I tried to solve this through suse dvd repair option andit detected a problem in grub. i repaired it but still nothing.Also the /home partition exists and i can access it when i login as root.
I have installed OpenSUSE a few months ago and worked fine. But from yesterday i can't login with root user. I received the message: Login: root Invalid user name I have no question for password neither.
Using openSUSE 11.4 (64-bit). Desktop is default KDE. All of a sudden I am no longer able to login. My desktop only has one user and when I key in the password (which I am 100% sure it is correct!) I get the dreaded "Login failed" message. I followed these instructions without success: How to reset/recover the ROOT password in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE Following the instructions in the above link, I tried re-typing the old password and created new ones too. But I keep on getting the Login Failed message. A strange situation
How can I enable "Auto Login" for root user?In " Yast --> Security And Users --> User And Group Management --> Expert options --> Login Settings " is just my own user and there's no root user to choose.
So when I write my password in a terminal the letters occur in clear not ***(star). what shall I do that enetering the password to work right.I want to say if I push key f for example the system to show me one *.I know it's easy but really I forgot .
I just happened to lock myself out of ssh access on my xen virtual server since I changed the ssh port but forgot to open it in the firewall. No problem, I just access it through VNC in VM manager, I thought, however I have some special chars in my root password and the keymap through VNC seems to have changed somehow. So I cant login as root, nor do su or sudo. I can login as user. I need the sign " but can't figure out how.
I need to run a script (which requires root privileges) on login per-user only. I want this to runtomatically so I'll add an appropriate line to .profile.A couple of questions:1 The easiest way I can think of to run the script as root is to setuid, but I know there are security concerns. Is there a better way
I had been copying "vmkd" files all of which are very large (11gig) each and later deleted them and it appears some I had deleted using "root" I reached a point when it couldn't do it and it said it couldn't because trash bin was full. Sure enough I found my root partition (20gigs) was full. I went root and emptied its trash bin which freed up about (4gigs) of space. I just set up a new system (11.2) on another drive and have setup it up with exactly the same programs as the system I'm having a problem with and the new systems root partition only has (6gigs) in the root partition. Question; how do I clean out my problem root partition?
I added a whole slew of apps to my favorites and lost the 'Shutdown' option...every time I try to shutdown in the Terminal I am told I must be logged in as Root to do so...I can't figure out how to do this I'm a newbie to Linux but a CNE 5 -haven't used it 10 years- an MCP and A+ certified I've searched local help and SuSe's site and I can't find anythingI've only spent a couple of hrs on this and have had SuSe 11.2 installed since last Sunday
I was logged in as root, made some changes to my users and think I may have inadvertently changed root somehow. Ever since then, my machine runs just fine, I can sudo, Yast, etc without any issues. (Root password is fine) but when I try to log in as root, the system changes the screen display, as if it's going to login, then returns me back to the login prompt without error. If I "ctl+alt+F1", I drop out to the console and can login as root, but cannot startx because the display is already in use.... So, I removed the .X0-lock, but still cannot get the GUI to load. (after running rm /tmp/./X0-lock, I get a fatal error, "can't establish any listening sockets..." "Ctl+Alt+F7" brings me back to the GUI where I am logged in as myself in Gnome) if I login with my user account, everything runs fine and all is well.
when I try to startup the xserver in normal mode iget a message "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 giving up. xinit: Resource temporaily unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error."
I dont know what this means except that something does not work.
I use KDE with Compiz and Emerald.I just installed the Enlightenment window manager. The only way I seem to be able to choose it is by logging out of my KDE session and getting to that login screen and choosing from the list....then logging in again.Where do I change the setting so that the login screen comes up every time I boot up?

I want to have numlock always on in the log-in screen, but I can't get it to work - I always have to activate it manually. I've tried out System Settings > Keyboard > Numlock > Turn on both as normal user and as root, but it simply doesn't work. I'm using openSuse 11.2 x64 w/ Kde 4.3.4 (updated from 4.3.1 w/ Kde repositories).
