I'm able to connect to my company's VPN network using GNOME NetworkManager but when I try to login to the remote system using SSH it is not able to resolve the DNS name, It works fine if I use IP instead of the FQDN.
I have a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!
This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.
I just installed opensuse 11.4 and i'm not being able to connect to my wireless lan. It recognizes my network, but when I click "ok" after typing the password it is like I had done nothing, no connection is set at all.I guess it is probably some configuration stuff since my notebook recognizes all available wireless networks. Sorry about the lack of details, but that is all I got.
I'm not sure what I did if anything but I have not used my opensuse for several months. Now when I try to connect to the Internet I can not pull any websites. The wireless connection is active and connected. I am getting an IP address via dhcp. When I try and ping out (opensuse.org) I get unknown host. If I ping an IP address or type the IP in my browser it works fine. nslookup works but only if I specify the dns server.
Here is a copy of my troubleshooting commands.code...
I'm new here, an Ubuntu user who would try Opensuse for a while. That is if I'm able to launch the thing ! I'd like to create a Live Usb Stick to test it and install it if I like it but it doesn't seem to work.
I tried the website method, using "Win32DiskImager.exe" but the program doesn't work for me (WinXP) : it looks like it's writing but when the "Done" message is prompted, I'm unable to access the usb key, Windows says it's not formatted. That doesn't look right... I tried with LinuxLive Usb Creator but the boot process fails and Universal-Usb-Installer doesn't offer an Opensuse option.
Is there another way to install the distribution on an USB stick ? I could still try through Ubuntu but that would be quite surrealistic.
Just recently installed Opensuse 11.2 in a KDE environment. The problem I am facing is that when I connect it to my network either via wired or wirless neither getting internet or access to the network although the network manager shows the connection as active I am using a Dlink Di-524 Wireless Router at home The Wirless router for the computer is Broadcom BCM 4312 Was able to install the drivers for this from the packman repository
Also when I connect my laptop directly to the internet connection via wired it is working fine. However if i connect it to my wireless router either over wifi or thru wired it just shows connected but i can neither access internet or other computers on the network. Have checked the wireless router other computers (windows and ubuntu are being able to access the internet via it) Results of my ifconfig-a command when i am connected over my wirless connection code...
How do you get linux to resolve local hostnames without DNS?
I've recently migrated from a fully windows home network, to a few linux machines and im unable to ping any local machines with hostname via these linux machines. i can ping IP and internet hostnames. also, windows > anything pings ok too. however linux > anything will not ping via hostname.
I beleive it's an additional service running on windows to resolve hostnames without DNS (wins/netbios).
DNS is done via a netgear DG834 router (DNS forwarding).
I know i could either use direct IP, or add machines into the hosts file, but im wondering if theres some way around that and to have it dynamically update like it does on the windows machines. static mappings seem a bit silly inside DHCP zones
I've seen some reports of avahi causing local network issues (taking over the .local domain), but i think this only extends to having to manually enter in .local after the hostname and even after removing avahi, the problem is still present.
I installed 11.4 from a verified and checked CD. Had and worked through the DSL and ipv6 problems discussed elsewhere in this forum. So browsers now work on the internet, but neither zypper nor yast will resolve the 11.4 repositories, so no refresh, no updates. Browsers bring up the repositories fine, so I can download and install an rpm that way, but it's not a life. Haven't been able to find this issue elsewhere, asis usually the case.
When I set my DNS servers via Yast>Network Devices>Network Settings>Hostname DNS it accepts the addresses, but then when I check then the next time they are faded out. I set them again, but same results.
I'm currently running 11.3 and decided I'd try upgrading to 11.4 following the instructions here: SDB:System upgrade - openSUSEUnfortunately, my attempts are defeated at the point of trying to refresh the new repos; I get the following message (for the oss repo, in this case):
With 11.4 replaced by 11.3 in the repo url, it refreshes just fine. The only repository that works when I change 11.3 to 11.4 is the Packman repo. I'm not really sure why the connection fails for 11.4 but not 11.3!
Further info: I have an old router with no IPv6 support, but have IPv6 disabled system-wide. I can enter the url for the repositories into firefox and they come up just fine - it's only with zypper/YaST that I get the above error message.I also tried upgrading using the network CD but ran into the same sort of problem. In this case it may be because the CD installer doesn't disable IPv6. (I didn't want to download the DVD at my connection speed, and the KDE live CD is not listed as suitable for upgrade).
Sometimes the KDE notifier shows up an error that freeze up plasma creating a bucle for infinite notices saying the same thing: "Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said: unknown protocoll <<amarok-sqltrackuid>>".
Sometimes same notice appears about 16 consecutive times before plasma crashes.
This is: KDE 4.6, Amarok 2.4, openSUSE 11.3 32bits.
I am trying for the last many days to setup my opensuse 10.3 as Samba PDC Server according to the URL mentioned below, but in vain:How to setup SUSE 10.3 as Samba PDC - openSUSE When ever I try to join a Windows XP machine to the domain setup on Opensuse, I get the error:'The following error occured while attempting to join the domain. The network path was not found'. What could be the reason for this error despite of the fact the I am able to ping the FQDN of the PDC from the XP machine, but the XP machine simply denies to join the domain because of the above mentioned error.
I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
I installed openSUSE on one of my work system. The network port wasn't working when I was installing, but works fine now (checked in Windows). But for some reason, I am not able to configure the network. I used both Dynamic and Static IPs (both work fine in Windows) but still no go. I am using Yast Control Center for this purpose. I can't even ping the default gateway when I am using custom settings. When I use dynamic settings, it says Unreachable Network.
I am using OpenSuse 11.3 and Network Manager is giving me a headache by not connecting to WEP based wi-fi network.It works in a wi-fi at my office while at my home, it shows / detects the network but keeps asking me over and over.
I'm going to come right out and say I am a complete novice with Linux/SUSE. The equipment I'm having a problem with is a little web-server that was purchased by my employer that has, quite suddenly, stopped functioning. I was changing the IP address within YaST, at which point the device offered to update itself, which I saw no harm in. Post-update, however, I was unable to so much as ping the device.
I tried "ifconfig eth0": "Error fetching interface information: Device not found." I went into network settings via YaST and found that there are two cards now listed as: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller Both IP addresses are "Not configured". The information pane, for both cards, cites:
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllerBusID : 0000:02:00.0 Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. The only difference in either of the cards is the BusID (0000:02:00.0 and 0000:03.00.0)
I can neither edit nor delete either of these cards. As I mentioned, I am a total Linux novice, and am at a total loss for what to do next, or even how to find critical information about the system itself. I know enough to check dmesg, but not enough to have any clue what to look for in the output.
I am running OpenSuse 11.2 on my desktop here in the office and when I download anything, other users are complaining over very slow internet speeds. My download speed seems to be the same as other users using Windows, but downloading from a windows machine does not cripple the network. So is there something in my network setup that can be tweaked so that I do not cripple the network when downloading ?
I have installed WICD on Debian . I can now access a new a Network Manager screen, which did not exist before, but it does not display/detect any wireless networks. It is like dead. Before installing WICD I did at least have a wireless WPE encrypted network, which was detected, although it often disconnected for no known reasons. Now even that Network has gone and I can't go on line. Can anybody help here? How can I configure the WICDNetwork Manager to detect an existing network or create a new one? In the latter case, would I have to reconfigure the Router settings to setup/connect to a network in Debian? May be I have to do this, because Tor/Vidalia changes my IP address and so my Network Adapter ( Linksys) can no longer connect to the router. Also, when trying to follow troubleshooting leads in this connection, the Terminal screen on Debian ( CMD) would often return a PERMISSIONS DENIED message.
I am unable to do my network setup. I have a lan connection. I used to easily setup it in windows xp in network connections > internet protocol > properties. But I do not understand anything in linux. I have installed latest version of open suse 11.1 and KDE environment. Secondly I am unable to play mp3 files on it and I do not hear any sound at startup too. I *945* motherboard with a inbuilt realtek lancard and it is working fine on windows.
I'm trying to enable a VNC connection from a Windows machine to remotely connect into my openSUSE machine (11.2, KDE, 64-bit), but I cannot get any desktop environment to load up at all. It just comes up with a blank screen and a black cross for a cursor. What I want is to be able to see exactly what I would normally see if I were sitting in front of it, rather than go into a 'virtual desktop' as appears to be the case. Ideally I would want to go into the KDE desktop environment in this instance, and it would also be nice if dual monitors could enabled for each remote session. How do I go about enabling my chosen environment?
If it makes any difference at all (although I doubt it does), I'm also using PuTTY in Windows in order to make an SSH tunnel to allow secure access, and I'm quite sure I've enabled all the necessary services for all of the above under the YaST Firewall (by the way, on a lesser note, do I need PuTTY to be installed at both ends for the SSH tunnel to work properly?). If you need a screenshot or output from terminal of sorts this can be arranged.
I was trying to create boot image on my pc with opensuse to boot into it from my laptop. I downloaded 1-click packages of kiwi, ltsp etc. First, I checked if I had all needed packages - kiwi-ltsp-setup -p. I installed everything manually, after that this check gives me no errors. Then I ran kiwi-ltsp-setup -c. Everything seems to be OK, but when I try to boot from laptop - I see boot menu, select to boot kiwi-ltsp and then get message "failed to load network module!".
I gave up and tried to make fat client-my laptop has better proccssor than server anyway.I downloaded opensuse 11.1 i586 dvd, mounted into /mnt/11.1 typed in console kiwi-ltsp-setup -fat. It completes without any errors and I get file example.img ~185mb en /srv/kla. After that I try kiwi-ltsp-setup -c and I get foolowing error - Starting kiwi-ltsp with AoE (kla) failed.I have changed kiwi-ltsp config file, but still no success.
I'm using OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit on a Lenovo G560. I'm able to establish both wired and unwired connections without problems. Now I'm in a situation where I'd like to share my laptop's internet connection with other devices. My thought was to establish an ad-hoc network that another computer could connect to wirelessly in order to get into the Internet, because I've only got one ethernet jack.
First thought was to use Network Manager, since that manages all my connections. A left click on the Network Manager icon brings up a menu in which "Wireless 802.11, Create network connection..." is an option. If I click on that I see a list of all the networks available in the area, as well as all the networks I've set up in the past. Below that are two options: "New Ad-Hoc Network" and "Connect To Other Network With Wireless 802.11..."
"New Ad-Hoc Network" seems like the right option, but when I double click on it the window closes and nothing happens. No error message, nothing. Network Manager continues to run and my connection is unchanged. If I just left click on it and then click "Connect" at the bottom of the window, the same thing happens.
When I change something in network setings using yast (for example hostname) it failes to restart the network. I have to start knetworkmanager manually from the terminal. Does anyone get the same type of behaviour ? I'm attaching the relevant yast log.I'm using 11.3 KDE 4.5.4 126.96.36.199-0.5-desktop kernel.
I installed 11.2 on an older HP Laptop which was running XP without any issues. Durring the install, the update processe failed (presumably unble to connect to respository). I am usind a wired connection and the nic is connecting to my router and is recieving an address via DHCP. I am also able to ping the workstion from the router's Web interface. However I am unbale to connect to the internet.I have turned off the Suse firewall via Yast and checked the settings against another computer running ver 11.1 .Everything appears to be correct but no joy.
been searching google and forums for about 5 hours now, and can't figure this one out, I have a server running opensuse 11.2 sharing various NFS directories, I have one laptop that is running 11.2 and I have no problem getting my NFS shares from the server.On my other laptop that is running 11.3, I had the shares working at one point, but changed things around and added a new HD to the server, now I can NOT get this thing to work, I have tried everything I could find to read on it. Started and stopped the NFS server and exportfs -a, and checked /var/logs/messages on server and nothing about this laptop (192.168.0.102 suse 11.3) trying to connect.On this laptop, I have deleted all the shares, and tried to re-add them but still get this error everytime.on server /etc/export:
