i have installed on a 8Gb disk /sdc solaris-2009.6 i cannot mount suse in solaris or solaris in suse. i have tried installing xfs and its supports. i want to copy the solaris installation to a partition in /dev/sdb
The default partition manager which OpenSUSE DVD 11.4 uses (Expert Partitioner) is not creating any logic partition with / mount because another system is already using it, is there anyway to fix this?
I have got a Acer Aspire 9300 which came with one of Bill Gates unreliable operating systems and a recovery partition in case something goes wrong. I surely installed linux (now on opensuse 11.4) as quickly as possible. mounting this hidden recovery partition under linux? All I can see is this from "fdisk -l"printout:
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders, total 234441648 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x34fe34fd [Code]....
I assume that the partition in question is between blocks 0 and 2047?
I had dual boot win 7 and win xp, when i tried to install suse over win xp partition (i choose to format that partition during installation suse). I dont know how but suse keept win xp, and make 4 new partitions. After that i had to format whole hd, couse with partition magic i could not find that 4 partition. Now i install win 7 and win xp again, but i want to install suse instade of xp. Is there option to install suse. So i would have l 3 Os, i have laptop. Are 3os slowing comp.?
This is the 1st time I am installing SUSE and I wanted to clear some of my doubts:I have the following computer specs:Core i32 GB RAM320 GB HDDATI Mobility Radeon 43301. Is creating a swap partition necessary while installing Suse 11.2?2. Will I be able to install 64-bit version of Suse on my computer?3. Will I be able to run Windows 7 side by side?4. Will I have any compatibility issues with my Display Adapter since I have had problems previously on Ubuntu with my onboard ATi Graphics..
Been happy with 10.3 and 11.3 almost ready to go over to Ubuntu due to partitioning bug in 11.4. Getting error 1007 on first partition written to disc. Abort, go to live CD keeps getting size of swap file wrong should be 2.00 GB, usually it is 2.01 GB. Deleted parts, tried to create using live CD 11.4. Same result. I create partitions first in 11.3 live CD then install 11.4 without formating. Will this work? Also issue with waening about Grub and disc size over 125 GB. New laptop Acer Aspire, will BIOS be ok. Dont want to lose win7 as OEM.
I have installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit version), and OpenSuse 11.2 (64 bit) on to a newly built Core i5 machine. I installed Windows first, with 3 partitions. The 100MB partition Windows reserves, a C: drive for the operating system and a D: drive for data. Both of these are NTFS partitions. I then installed OpenSuse into the unallocated section at the end of the new disk drive. The Linux partitioner showed OpenSuse in an extended partition, containing a swap / /home and /tmp partition. Both operating systems now appear to be working fine, but I'm worried about the Windows Disk Manager showing that the OpenSuse partions are primary ones, and are not inside an extended partition. It only shows a small amount of unallocated space at the end of the drive as being in an extended partition.
Should I delete OpenSuse and start again? Perhaps creating an extended partition with Windows before trying to reinstall OpenSuse?If I leave the disk as it is, is it likely to continue to dual boot without something unstable occuring? It may just be a Windows problem which will not be fatal, but I'm worried all my files may get scrambled at a some point in the future.
I installed opensuse 11.2 some 6 months ago as an alternative to windows 7, on a 44GB partition. Having become my primary OS, I am looking forward to expand the ext4 partition from 44GB to the maximum possible. I have some 24GB unpartitioned space, and free space on NTSF partitions (one of which could be deleted if necessary). What is the best and safest procedure to perform the partitioning.
It's work very well until i try restart my client server and the mount from 192.168.2.83 is gone, if i want it work again i must run mount script again. Can it become the permanent mount, so when i restart my server the mount is already exist?
I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.
I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.
I came into this strange behavior related to mounting DVDs and/or CDs in SuSE 11.2 : after inserting a DVD intro the DVD unit, and mounting it through the "device notifier" applet, I find the disk mounted in /media under a folder named after the disk label (as expected) BUT ... the folder is in fact padded with blanks after the name found as label for the disk. For ex.: I have a DVD called DVD_ROCK2 The mounting is made in "/media/DVD_ROCK2 " (the folder created at mounting time in /media has 14 characters (if I counted them correctly) instead of the only 8 from the name of the disk This does affect my application "cdcollect", which crashes when it encounters a mounted disk which contains spaces in it's label.
I tried to adjust cdcollect, by modifying it's dources (trying to "trim" the name readed as disk-label, but with no results; anyway I am not good at C#, and even kinda hate this language, so... I'd prefer a solution coming from Linux's point of view: what changed in the mounting system from Suse 11.1 till now ? what can I do to change this way of mounting the disks ?I cannot state this happens with every single one of my DVDs; the ones wich are mounted this way are generally written in the same PC, in older versions of SuSE (11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunatelly, I had an older written disk (way back on SuSE 9.x) which does not behave this way (it is mounted in a folder with the name created exactly as the label is, without the padded spaces).
Whatever resolution I choose, 1600x1200 is preferred, it is reset to a default of 1024x768 when I log out. I use the "Configure Desktop" option to set the resolution. I can find no other method to do so. The graphics adapter is an ATI hd3200. I have installed the fglrx driver. I cannot fine the "Control Center" for the driver. How do I make the selected resolution permanent?
I tried to install openSUSE 11.3 from the Gnome live CD. I had four partitions set already for /boot, /, /home (ext4 all) and swap from a previous failed Linux Mint installation. I installed into them, and formatted them. The /boot partition is primary and pretty well into the disk. The other partitions are logical and at the end of an extended partition which has several partitions before them. There's also an inactive Windows primary partition at the start, and a second disk with a Windows installation and a lot of logical partitions.
After install, it looks like booting into grub works fine, and I get "Error 22: No Such Partition". I then get to the GRUB menu. If I choose openSUSE from there I get:
Booting 'openSUSE 11.3' root (hd1,2) Error 22: No Such Partition
Booting from the live CD it looks like /boot, / and /home contain data, so they must be formatted fine.
So ive got a Suse server up and running. It is connecting to a clearcase server, so i want to mount the remote filesystem as part of startup, as this is generally rebooted when im not around.I would normally add something to /etc/init.d and put the shortcut to it in the appropriate runlevel (in this case 3). Tried that. Didnt work.
Realised the init script needed to have the LBS stuff at the start, so put that in, and used insserv to add the script. I used required-start set to $ALl.This successfully created the init script with S20, and i eneabled it with chkconfig.
What must be done to mount an ext3 partition that's on another computer which is connected via utp crossover cable? I can't seem to figure this one out, though I've read somewhere that it can be done, and I'd like to know how.
If /mnt & /media are for temporary mount points and removable drives, what is the usual convention for locating permanently mounted partitions for all users on the computer? e.g. I have a partition for photographs, I'll just call it "photos" would it be bad form to mount it as /photos or something like /my_hdd/photos ?In practice it probably won't matter, but I want to make sure it's easy for anyone else to perform admin tasks on the computer when I'm not available.
I have a computer with 2*Quad cores, 48GB RAM and 2* 1TB harddisks. There is a 100 GB partition for Windows 7 on one of the harddisks (sda). We want to use the computer for chemical computations, by running the chemical software on SuSE (SLES 10). I used GParted to shrink the Windows partition. I tried to install SuSE, but just before it asks for the root password, it restarts the computer, and after the restart the keyboard and mouse didn't work. (I had the keyboard, mouse and screen connected to a KVM switch, because I have more than one computer in the office). I tried to plug the mouse & keyboard directly into the computer, but nothing worked.
I was afraid of restarting the computer (since the installation wasn't completed) but I reasoned that perhaps then the computer would automatically pick up the mouse and keyboard. It did. However, earlier in the installation I chose to install KDE and not Gnome, but when everything was finished I found that I had Gnome, and not KDE. How do I change to KDE? I guess there should be a way using YAST or something, but I'm not sure. At present, one of the harddisks has the Windows partition, and then the SWAP (primary), and then the rest of the Linux part (primary). I would like to partition the Linux part like this......
i have windows 7 installed on my laptop and working fine..i want to install Open Suse 11.2 along side. I tried installing by booting with DVD for Suse. But it gave me warning to delete the windows partition.I would like to keep the partition intact with windows 7 and install Suse. Any suggestions ?I can create partition on my laptop but i do not want to modify the current windows structure.
i have a wierd problem i have a couple of mp3 cd's and data dvds when i put the dvd into the drive , device notifier picks it up but does non of the options work . the mp3 cds are not detected at all . When i boot into windows xp all the discs work so i know its not the drive thats faulty .
I have a dual-boot setup with winXP and openSUSE 11.2. I have both XP and SUSE partitions on a 160g HDD and then a Hardware RAID 1 array of 2 320g HDDs. The RAID arrray contains all my media/data files on an NTFS partition. For some reason SUSE shows both individual 320g disks mounted in the file system, but not the RAID array. If I attempt to browse either of the disks, I get an error and can't view them. How do I mount the RAID NTFS partition?
I have installed suse linux on my desktop pc. I cant see the disk drives on which windows xp is load. How can I mount those drives so that I can see those drives in suse also. Also when I connect my usb drive, it is also not shown. I am new to linux. What are these commands to mount the other drives.
