Was enjoying my new experiences until I tried to access/see my OpenSuse 11.4 install (Within VirtualBox on Windows 7)I can surf the net and download packages etc but from Windows 7 the Virtual OpenSuse7 does not show up.I know the windows network works because I also have Ubuntu10.4 on VirtualBox and that I can see and access fine.Change to OpenSuse and it all goes down the tubes, doesnt even show up in the Network on Winsows 7With Ubuntu I have etho setup to use DHCP automatically.I've tried numberous settings unsuccessfully on Suse and I think in the process have probably changed something incorrectly, but it didnt show up in Network places even before I started fiddling.Settings within Network Settings are:
1) Global options
Network Setup method: Tradional with ifup
IPv6 Protocol - Enabled
I wonder how to get Samba share access working well...Dolphin supports Samba but it doesn't really mount anything, it seems... Non-KDE Applications therefor can't access samba that way. In Gnome there was a workaround for the same problem. You could simply go to ~/.gvfs in any application and find the samba mounted there.Is there anything like that in KDE? I set up a Samba mount via /etc/fstab for now but that is quite annoying because it fails after each Suspend, changing WLAN Access Points, etc. Then I have to go to the console and manually launch sudo mount -a to get it working again. How can I make things more comfortable?
P.S.: I'm even up for using something else than Samba to talk to my fileserver. However I don't know of anything that would work better in this regard. (NFS would have the exactly same problem for example)
I followed samba setup per thread Samba and Suse: HowTo Set up an openSUSE-Windows Home Office LAN/Network. Versions 11.x and then upgraded my samba from the special repository per advice at Samba broken after latest security update 11.2 - openSUSE Forums I can now see all my boxes on the network from either an XP or linux box and I can access my linux shares from any XP box but I can't access any XP share from my linux box (openSUSE 11.2). I get an error that reads "The file or folder smb://SharedDocs does not exist"I can see the SharedDocs folder under the XP box in samba shares though. And it really does exist on the XP box.
Using SuSE 11./4 on two machines. Successfully set up a server to share a folder. The client is able to read files from the folder, but not write to them.the client perspective, the shared folder permissions are read and write if owner, read only for all otherHowever, the server shared folder has been set up for sharing, and the permissions are set for read and write to all.
One more thing. When the client goes into the samba share, it sees the workgroup. Clicking into that, it sees the name of the server computer. Clicking into that,it sees two folders: "profiles" and "users". Clicking into "users" goes into the shared folder. I tried setting the permissions from the client side on the "users" folder using root privileges to allow reading and writing without any success
I can't for the life of me figure out why I cannot browse my own shares from my linux boxes. both run OpenSuSE 11.3 I follow swerdna's tutorials and reboot several times but don't have a clue as to whats going on to prevent me from viewing localhost shares or 2nd linux box shares. I get 'unable to mount location, Failed to retrieve share list from server' error when I click on my workgroup icon in nautilus.
I am posting this as I have tried several times to work this out. I have read article after article, post after post and tutorial after to tutorial to sort this issue. I have an Ubuntu 10.04 machine running as the LDAP and NFS server with two Opensuse 11.3 desktop machines. Both of the Opensuse machines can login using the LDAP server for authentication and this works fine. The server also exports the NFS Shares no problem but I am unable to mount the shares from the Opensuse machines. I have been using Yast, NFS Client to mount them.
Yast NFS Client can see the shares and lists them however when I apply the settings it states:
'Unable to mount entries in etc/fstab' I need to mount the shares according to the LDAP details as I want the users to be able to access their files no matter which machine they login at. Can anyone shed any light on the issue. Any help would be great and I would be enternally grateful as I am now beginning to pull my hear out slightly.
Having a bit of a minor issue with samba on Opensuse 11.4 64 bit. My problem is that I can't view my samba shares in Dolphin although I know they are there. If I bring up dolphin using the Opensuse shortcuts to samba I get this
My computers / drives attached to my network should be viewable here yet they are not. However, if I type in the address directly I can view and access my shares.e.g.
Here is a copy of my smb.conf

I have some NFS shares on a server (say Desktop) to which the client (Notebook) is not always connected to. Even the server is not always up. To mount an NFS share in the past, I had some Device-Link icons on my KDE3 desktop. That worked fine. Now, SUSE 11.2 comes with KDE4. The NFS shares are properly configured in /etc/fstab as usual (including 'users' option). And now the big question: What is the official way to mount my NFS share on demand as an ordinary user?
Desktop icons are not KDE4ish. And the Device-Link method doesn't work either, because it apparently doesn't take care of /etc/fstab (i.e. the users option) and insists on root privileges. Also Dolphin is not able to mount NFS shares when I need it because it simply does not show them. The only way to mount my shares is to perform the mount command in a terminal session. But this couldn't be the truth with KDE4, isn't it?
Since OpenSuse 11.2 doesn't reconnect samba shares upon a resume from suspend, I wrote a small, ugly script to do so. It's placed in /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount
#!/bin/bash case $1 in hibernate) echo "Hey guy, we are going to suspend to disk!" /etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;; suspend) /etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;; thaw) echo "oh, suspend to disk is over, we are resuming..." sleep 15 /etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;; resume) sleep 15 /etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;; *) echo "somebody is calling me totally wrong." ;; esac
and made it executable (as root) chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount
The 15 seconds sleep time is useful to me to postpone the remount after WiFi is back online. Perhaps there are way more elegant ways to do so (check for x times if WiFi is on, for example), but I'm no good at bash, and this serves me well. How do I file a wishlist for 11.3? If someone puts a samba share in fstab, I'd assume he wants it connected mostly everytime (at startup for sure... so why not over a standby?) I hope 11.3 just reconnects in-fstab samba shares in a polished way, out of the box.
I am using the mount command to mount Windows shared folders are another machine on my LAN, to have them show up in the Linux filesystem. The command mounts the folders just fine, however the access is read-only.
In the command, I am also using the -o option to specify a username and password that should have full access. Also, I have used this identical command on my other distros and it seems to work fine. I've Googled high and low, trying to find a way to specify a Samba user/password for authentication. I know one of the other distros had a program that I could specify a Samba user/password to simulate a Windows login.
I installed 11.2 a couple weeks ago on a machine at work, and thru YaST connected to the domain. I was then able to add a printer, and thru nautilis browse to windows computers with shares. Something changed about a week ago and I've played with everything I can think of, read lots of tutorials, and still can't make it work. I'm about ready to format and reinstall from scratch and try again, as I'm out of ideas.
So the way it was before, in nautilus if I clicked on network it would give me a list of all sorts of computers on my domain, and if I clicked on one of the windows machines it would ask me my username/password, and after I entered them, I'd be in.
Now, in nautlis if I click on network it shows me "windows network" and if I click on that it gives me a list of all sorts of workgroups and domains (or something like that). If I click on the one with my domain name, it asks username/password but it doesnt work.
I've tried leaving the domain and rejoining, I've enabled and disabled kerberos, ldap, samba, everything I can think of - although I dont think I had to change those at all from default the first time.
I dont know what I could have done between when it worked and now. I did allow some installation of updates. Shortly thereafter I noticed ssh no longer worked, and after playing with it forever I couldnt make it work, I uninstalled openssh and then reinstalled it from the repository, and it worked again. No idea why it stopped working, but maybe it's related to this domain problem, I dunno.
My main goal at this time is to be able to access windows shares from the linux machine. I don't care if I have to login to linux with my windows domain account or a local account (although all the documentation I've followed said that I should be able to login with a domain username/password too).
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.
To workaround the kio_smb madness, I set up shares to be mounted via /etc/fstab. It works flawlessly until I suspend my laptop. Coming back from suspend, samba mounts are not being re-mounted automatically. Since I'm new to opensuse, I wish to ask you: Is there a polished way to make this happen, in opensuse approach? Or shall I just go and toy with scripts in the init.d (or what is it in suse)? As much as I could figure, I checked in yast, and smbfs service is signed as "Yes".
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
I am giving 10.04RC a try instead of Windows 7, so far so good. I can connect to my network shares fine using "Connect to a Server" & bookmark with the file browser, however when I use OpenOffice writer Spreadsheet to open/save files the shares disappear in the"Open/Places". Is this a bug in Ubuntu or Open Office? Is there an update/fix?
I installed Suse 11.2 on clean HD. I cannot connect to the internet. Seems like Suse didn't install drivers for on board ethernet card. It is a Marvell Yukon 88E8056. I'm new to this and don't know how to install the drivers.
I have SUSE 11.0 set up to act as a router/firewall for my home network to the internet through a cable modem attached to an Ethernet card. When I was laid off several years back, I found information that let me connect my network to an ISP via a standard serial modem. I am considering going to the Sprint U1901 4G USB modem and dropping cable internet. Sprint claims the U1901 is Linux compatible. My thoughts are that using the 4G modem should be similar to the old dialup modem. I had a script that connected to the internet whenever internet traffic was detected. Unfortunately, I did not save notes on what I had done to setup the modem to dial automatically, and I have been unable to locate information that seems good to set this up again. I already know that all I had to do to get routing working was simply replace the internet port in the firewall/routing script with the port for the modem. So I assume that is rather trivial.
Would you please point me to a doc, perhaps SuSE specific, that gives reasonable directions on how to set up a "dial on demand" ISP connection? I assume that the 4G modem will be very similar to my old serial modem so that a dial on demand script will work. I did find a dial on demand howto, however, it did not seem to apply.
In short: browsing the internet with domain names does not work. The long version: I've configured my network with DHCP and ifup. Ping works on my internal net and with servers in the internet. Dig work's too! I get the right IP to the requested domain. When i try to access the internet using firefox or even wget i get an DNS error. For example wget is showing the following error: Resolving heise.de... failed: Name or service not known. wget: unable to resolve host address 'heise.de'
Again dig show me the right IP and if i add the entry to /etc/hosts it work's too! I've even tried it with manually setup of ip address, nameserver and default gateway but with the same result. Switching off the firewall has no effect on this problem, too.
I install from openSUSE-11.3-NET-x86_64.iso. Installation was succesfull, but after install all packet on test internet / update was error. And after log in in installed system internet not work. I use router with DHCP
I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
I have a desktop computer running OpenSUSE 11.2 with two network cards installed. I would like to use both cards for connecting to the internet using different networks. The setting would be the following: eth0 is the main (default) card, almost all programs should use this NIC for connecting to the internet. eth1 is used only by a few programs, which have setting for selecting which network interface to use. The two NIC's are connected to different networks, so the IP address of the NIC's, the related subnet masks and gateways are also different.
Saying short, I would like to have the two NIC's as they would be in two separate computers. I can set the IP address and subnet mask of the NIC's. The main problem is that I can only declare one gateway. How can i setup this? I do not use network manager, I configure network cards using yast, but if needed I can of course use ifconfig directly.
I'm having a strange problem with my network connection/DNS. I turn computer the on and it recognizes and connects to wireless or wired but I can't access any Internet resources or my router. If I ping the default gateway, I get no response and I get DNS errors from any network services that run at start up. If I stop and start the network daemon then it all works fine until the next time I turn on my laptop. It does this for both wireless and wired connection.
I've tried to edit the network interface information in YaST but it says that configuration is handled by knetworkmanager and I have no idea where that information is accessed. I should point out that it all worked fine until I tried to connect to open WAP at my school and couldn't so I connected to the wired network. Next morning I had this problem when connecting to my home network. My questions are 1. What could be the cause of this error and 2. where does one configure the network interfaces when using knetworkmanager
I often use an Ethernet cable to connect my computer to another computer for various purposes. But when I do that, I cannot use the internet even though I'm still connected to a WiFi access point. I'm presuming that's because openSUSE is trying to reach the internet through the Ethernet cable, which has precedence over WiFi.Is there a way to enable internet usage via WiFi while I'm connected to another computer over Ethernet?
I first tried an upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 and lost Internet Access, so i re-loaded 11.4 from scratch on clean partitions.
I am connected to my wireless WPA2/PSK connection, have an IP, am able to see the network.
I turned off and disabled the SUSE firewall.
I tried setting Firefox proxy settings to auto and to none, i dont use proxy.
I am currently posting this through an SSH connection to my 11.1 server from the new install of 11.4 on a Dell latitude D600 laptop (not using the on-board Broadcomm that is an issue for a later date).
the thing is that I cant use Network Manager to connect to Internet, because it simply do not connect. The connection, although, awailable throught yast when i choose "traditional method with ifup", so everything is just fine, but if i need to reconnect, i have to reboot. How do I setup a !working! connection through Network Manager, or maybe i do not do something properly.
I'm new in SUSE 11.4. My problem is: I'm using Alfa AWUS036H card. It's recognised and I can establish connection to my network, but cant get to Internet. I can't surf the web cos Firefox tell me that connection is timed out. Now I'm confused why I can't surf the web even if I'm connected. Also, I trayed to instal linux drivers for this card folloving Ubuntu "how to" and it just dont work.
