OpenSUSE Install :: Boot From USB Connected External Hard Take Long Time From Loading INITRD Image To Start Boot Process?

Jul 18, 2011

I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.

OpenSUSE Install :: Speed Up Boot Time

Dec 26, 2010

Are there any easy special tricks to speed up the boot time?Coming from Linux Mint (GNOME), I could get to the Desktop from cold in less than 25 secs.Now in openSuse 11.3 (KDE4.5) it takes more than twice that.Is this a function of KDE or have Ubuntu done something that openSuse hasn't to speed up the boot?

OpenSUSE Install :: System Time Advancing With Each Boot?

Aug 15, 2010

For some reason, every time I shut down and reboot my machine, the system time advances four hours. The local time here is EDT (-4hrs UTC). I have it set correctly in Yast and have the 'hardware clock is set to UTC' checked. However, for some reason, the next time I boot, the system time will be ahead four hours.

OpenSUSE Install :: Warnings At Boot Time After Upgrading To 11.4

Mar 26, 2011

Though my upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 went pretty well (X and apparmor/samba config to renew), I have a bunch of warnings at boot time. Sample: "* wil be removed in a future UDEV version..." On another box, I get some "/etc/*/ipv6" should have a .conf file. Should I worry / fix up something before next upgrade?

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.3 Only 1st Time After Boot Hibernate?

Apr 13, 2011

pm-hibernate and pm-suspend only work the first time after booting into runlevel 5. This behavior is reproducable. pm-hibernate starts out correctly but then hangs the system bevore it gets to save the image from memory to disk. The computer locks up and does not power down.

pm-suspend: on wake up there is no signal on the screen (pm-suspend called from X environment or text terminal shows same result). I spent some time reading information on s2ram s2disk and added the follwing options:

S2RAM_OPTS="-f" in
(display adapter is GForce4 nvidia with the closed source nvidia driver for accel)
splash = n in
/etc/suspend.conf - to get some more information during the suspend / hibernate.

Any ideas to get pm-hibernate / pm-suspend to work more than one time after boot??? Hibernate would be a great start for daily work and for energy saving.

horstausdemwald PS: In runlevel 3 pm-hibernate works various times from a text terminal. Under the same condition pm-suspend leads to a scrambled text terminal after resuming (some help on this: using vga=normal in Grub). The computer continues to work - though without visual aid - when the text terminal is scarambled. For example Runlevel 5 can be called blindly from the text terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: Samba Shares Do Not Mount At Boot Time?

Mar 12, 2010

opesnSuse 11.1, linux x86_64 This host has two samba shares that are located on an OS/2 server. Neither mount at boot time but they do mount from the command line.

kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6

There are 5 other client computers that mount the same shares at boot time using almost (different user/pass info) identical data. I do not see what is different about this host.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Incredibly Slow HDD And Boot Time Increased

Mar 30, 2011

My hardware:
AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (2,5 GHz) + 2 GB DDR2 memory
MSI K9N V2 (nforce 520)

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 with all the released updates are installed. I've got an Windows Xp SP3 on the same hard drive and it's works fine. S.M.A.R.T. says the hdd is 100%. A few days ago I realized that the boot time increased and the hard drive operations takes way too much time. So currently the boot sequence takes 11-14 minutes.

I've already tried to solve this problem but no effect:
1.) cleaned up the root directory to create more free space
2.) plugged the sata cable to another port
3.) changed from AHCI to IDE and reverse in BIOS settings
4.) added ahci, sata_nv into the /etc/sysconfig/kernel file and created a new initrd
5.) searched for problems in the syslog
Just to imagine how slow is currently the system/hdd:

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Turn Off Keyring Feature At Boot Time

OpenSUSE Install :: After Kernel Update No Ext4 Support At Boot Time

Apr 20, 2010

telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: New SSD Disappointing Boot Time

Jun 4, 2011

I've just replaced my SATA boot drive /dev/sda1 with a 65Gb SSD (Kingston SSDnow V-100, latest version) but I find the much-hyped speed advantage almost negligible. I used to have boot times in openSUSE (fresh install of 11.4, measuring from GRUB menu to startup guitar chord) of around 50 seconds, and the SSD drive is only a little faster at about 40 seconds. I was expecting something more like half the previous boot speed.Haven't done any tinkering yet except for the noatime setting in /etc/fstab.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: External USB HDD Not Recognized At Boot Time

Mar 20, 2011

I am actually working again on a problem i had already on opensus 11.3 (never resolved), and now also after the upgrade to 11.4 .

I do have an external HDD (Samsung STORY Station) usually connected to the linux server. I also have udev rules setup to automount the device on /media/xxx by label.

I used to have my own rules, now have some more coplete from the internet.

When I now reboot the server, the "sd*" device for story station is not created, and obviously not mounted.

If however I do switch of th estory station after reboot, and turn power on again, the device is configured and properly automounted as by udev rules.

Also during the boot the device is seen as from boot.msg:

<6>[ 1.444939] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=04e8, idProduct=5f06
<6>[ 1.448686] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=11, SerialNum
<6>[ 1.452462] usb 2-2: Product: Samsung STORY Station
<6>[ 1.456217] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: JMicron

P.S.: I used th esearch function and google, but did find many similar articles but nothing matching my scenario. So I hope I did not miss something obvious.

OpenSUSE Network :: Error Mounting NFS Shares Ato Boot Time?

May 20, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.4 updated from 11.3, update from 11.2 updated from. I'm mounting at boot time (in fstab) some shares from an opensuse 11.2 server. Mounting worked fine in 11.2, 11.3 and also in 11.4 but suddenly (maybe an automatic update?) It stopped working.... sometimes.

Sometimes they are mounted properly but sometimes they aren't. When mount fails I get a log error: "rpc.statd is not runninf but is required for remote locking. Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local or start statd"

If I run manually (as root) mount -a the shares mount properly always, so I thought it was a problem of timing (the service starting late) so I tried to get a script to run after the network initialitation, the script does: "mount -a". But it doesn't work either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Aspire One D150 USB Install Freezes At Boot Time

Jun 28, 2010

I am trying to install ubuntu netbook edition on my Acer aspire one D150. I have tried to do this before with version 9 with no luck so I waited until 10 to see if the problem goes away; apparently it has not. I put the ubuntu install files onto a USB stick according to the instructions from ubuntu here for windows (I have windows xp on the netbook now).

When I shut the PC down and turn it back on with the USB key inserted, the laptop just seems to hang at the ACER splashscreen. This screen is where I could press F2 for setup or F12 for boot order; the buttons do not respond, the USB key appears inactive. Again, it just seems to hang. I've waited for as long as letting it run all night to see if it goes anywhere by the morning with no luck.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Terminal At Boot Time / Opted To Install ATI Drivers When Alerted To Restricted Ones By Pop-up?

Jan 1, 2010

I recently installed Fedora - it seems like a nice interface and I want to experience the system before deciding whether I want to keep using it over my ever reliable Crunchbang, which gives me absolutely no grief whatsoever. However, it is nice to use an attractive interface now and again.So, here's my problem - I opted to install the ATI drivers when alerted to the restricted ones by the pop-up. I took note of how to disable them again if there were problems with the display after reboot. There was a problem with the display (black screen) and I can't get the command entered at boot time because the only command line environment I have an option for is GRUB. Grib does not recognize any of the 'aticonfig --initial -f' command that ATI instructed me to use to get things back to normal. How do I do this? I prsume others have been there and will know how to guide me. - getting the graphical interface to display better graphics. I want the eye candy that desktop effects give. I am hoping Fedora won't let me down here because I could simply continue to use Ubuntu which only gives one problem with the window resize delay.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast2 Does Not Work After Some Time Using VNC

Dec 5, 2009

I have problems with running Yast2 under Gnome when I connect via VNC to the computer. The first 20-30 times it worked, but then it simply stopped to work. When switching to another VNC-Server (instead of :1 to :2) it works again for approx. 20-30 times. The behaviour is very much similar to the one described here:

Yast2 startet nicht unter VNC (SUSE 11.1/Gnome)

I use OpenSUSE 11.2 with german language set. The VNC server I use the one that is installed "by default".

When I try to run Yast2 from a terminal under Gnome as normal user I get the following output:

./yast2: Zeile 30: ./lib/YaST2/bin/yast2-funcs: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
./yast2: Zeile 267: set_lang_from_sysconfig: Kommando nicht gefunden.
./yast2: Zeile 192: check_qt: Kommando nicht gefunden.
Qt GUI wanted but not found, failing back to ncurses.
