I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!
When I click download DVD 4.7 GB, on any browser (I tried in Firefox, Opera and Chrome) It started to download 4.3 GB instead of 4.7- The first Download was 4.2 GB and I though that was wright, but the checksum didn't match. Now It started download only 4.3 GB Why is that? How can I solve this ?
i have Windows XP and OpenSuse on my harddrive (dualboot) my problem is i cannot see my Windows-partitions when running Suse, i need to have access to those partitions and i cannot find how to do that.
My question to the community is should I preform a fresh install of OpenSuSe 11.2 or upgrade my current version of OpenSuSe 11.1? As of current I just use my system to surf the web check, email and Basic Business needs. The specs of my Laptop are:
OS Information OS: Linux 220.127.116.11-0.4-default i686 Current user: jraglin@Jada System: openSUSE 11.1 (i586) KDE: 3.5.9 "release 49.1"
Firefox is running really slowly for me. It seems it's accessing the hard drive constantly (as seen through System Monitor).I'm running 10.04If I start Thunderbird and Firefox invariably the disk drive light just keeps flashing for minutes and the Firefox screen gets "grayed out" and everything just slows way down. Often I just throw the power switch to shut the computer off.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I was messing around with some settings and all that. I went to System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects. I then proceeded to enable the "Extra" option. I was prompted to restart my computer for the effects to take place. Now it is running somewhat slow, for example when I open up Firefox, or any other program, it loads very slowly. I went back to change the Visual Effects back to "None" but it was already on that option, I don't know why. I went to my Hardware Drivers and I didn't have the recommended graphics driver on, so I put the recommended on and that had no help.
I've been using Hardy Heron and linux mint 7 for quite a while now and was very happy with both until the last month or so.For some reason the computer seems to run much more slowly than it did. I deleted the linux mint because I was only testing it, but Hardy has been my stable (trusted) distro for quite some time.I've actually booted into xp to write this because Hardy had got too slow.I've spent the day downloading Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux mint 9, but both failed to install when I tried.
I hope this is the right forum for this. I downloaded Blender today to try my hand at making some 3D graphics. I have used it in the past on a windows machine and it ran smoothly. This time I have downloaded it onto a computer with similar specs but it runs very slowly. The program is laggy and slow to respond to both keyboard and mouse input. When I checked the system monitor it said that I am using 50% of my cpu and 1/6th of my memory running both Blender and Firefox(to write this post). The machine is running no hotter than usual and the fans do not seem to be being stressed at all.
Does anyone know what could be causing the program to run so slowly?
Has anyone else noticed that Firefox started running incredibly slowly?It just happened on two of my computers (one 9.10, the other 8.04 LTS).After starting firefox, it just sits and sits while trying to load a page. Even a local page (my router's config page). It literally takes about 5 minutes to load URL...Other internet apps are working fine, including Opera, which is how I'm writing this.
I am running Suse 11.3 64bit and OpenOffice 18.104.22.168 it installed with the system.OpenOffice's latest is 3.3 something, is there a repository that I can add to continuously update the program? Or do I need to completely remove the present program and install the latest from OpenOffice.org? It would appear that the one that came with the system was pieced together by the Suse team - do they update this at all?
My application requires that I run dos commands on a Windows desktop which is in the same network as the Suse server. The command needs to be initiated from my Suse serverand I need to get the result of the command from Windows on my Suse server
I need to set up a domain controller that can communicate with windows machines as well as be accessable by the domain name and allow me to log in to the domain from my windows machines. i do have the novells guide to compTIA linux+ book but i cant figure out what i need to do to set up this server in the way i described above.
Im running suse 11.2 on a gateway lt3103u during boot i noticed the screen goes dim. i thought nothing of it untill i tried to watch *ahem* educational video *ahem*. ive found that no matter what program i use xine vlc or anything else that video sets the screen to dim as if it were in power saving mode. this problem also occurs when i close the lid. it locks the screen into dim mode. in both cases i can use both Fn keys and the power management widget to reset it to bright, but this problem is annoying having to keep turning it back u to see.
I've installed openSUSE 11.1 in my desktop with default firefox as web browser. Whenever surfing graphical sites Its says flash need to be installed and in the Adobe site which package I've to download? (Yat or tar.gz or rpm, etc.. etc..) and how I can install it.

I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S.

When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory.
I'm trying to install a GeForce 8600 XT card into novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11 so that I can get the 3D Cube to work. It currently does not work with the default nvidia card onthe motherboard.I can not find the correct driver for the GeForce 8600XT card. Can someone identify the driver I should be using please? Then if someone could also direct me to the "How to install a Video Driver" tutorial,
UPDATE:I've downloaded the correct drivers but it still says that my hardware does not support Desktop enhancements etc ... I think the GeForce 8600 XT just doesn't support 3D accelleration ... period.Can someone suggest a reasonably priced video card that is easy to install and which supports 3D Accelleration please?
Windows redraw very slowly when you move them, i.e. you move window and it redraws when you passed about half of the screen. Everything except that works fine as usual. Maybe anyone has any ideas what could happen?I have OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4, Radeon HD 4870 (proprietary drivers, but i've installed it long ago and it's likely not the problem).
