someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.
Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?
in 11.4 the texi2dvi version is 1.135, based on texinfo version 4.13. Now these are old buggy versions (see e.g. texi2dvi: locale-dependent error in egrep [A-z] ), causing that documentation can not be built, for example when building gcc. Now one would hope that Suse provides updates (the latest version of texinfo is 4.9), but I can't find them?
It seems to me that the installation of texinfo is a bit more complicated, because of the integration with your system, so I hesitate to install texinfo myself. Yast should have a bug-reporting facility, where one could easily report such issues. Hope somebody can help (we have to install various pieces of software, which call texi2dvi, which then breaks, making the whole build breaks, and it would be not easy to change the build of these
Just updated, downloads and install complete. I closed laptop. Fan kept running. I rebooted. Black screen. Rebooted again. Screen resolution messed up (800x600 or whatever). Changed resolution in System/Prefs. Better, but the look is not the same as before update. The Gnome fonts and icons are too small, but the resolution is same as before update! My machine has been acting buggy lately...colored text in IceWeasel browser search field, where normally black. I have Firestarter running. How to tell if machine is hacked? I just logged out/in and all normal now. I still think the machine is acting weird.
today i did the automatic update with synaptic ( firefox ) on ubuntu 9.04_AMD64 and kernel 188.8.131.52. Firefox 3.6.8 is now buggy: i cannot save files with: "save as" from web-pages. Bookmarking wep-pages is not possible. and the auto completion in http:// is not working anymore
I have suse 11.0 installed and now that 11.1 is out i would like to update. I have searched for this already and have found three ways of doing it:
zypper dup zypper up
in YAST view all packages and right click and click update all if update available. I have tried all these methods but i still seem to be running Suse 11.0 as it says in sysinfo:/ . How do i successfully update from 11.0 to 11.1?
I tried to download the Suse 11.2 DVD to do an install. When I went to do the install it failed cause it was corrupt.Not to big of deal, I had an older version of 10.2.Now that I have 10.2 installed, is there a way for me to upgrade this to 11.2 without downloading the Install DVD.I've been away from messing with Linux for a few months so I'm pretty darn rusty. I'll run Linux for awhile and when I get frustrated I'll move back to Windows. I'll mess with that for a few months and then go back to Linux...
if I can update the OS (new security updates,patches etc also) on a system that ain't having any internet connection. Simply i would like to know if there is any packs like rpm/ tar files available, so that we can install the updates easily..I am using opensuse..
I have a buggy install, 11.2 and I need to be root to look around/change/fix I'm tired of being asked twice for a security code for any change/tweak/install/config when im trying to fix the issue. Which of your multiple applications do I use to make myself root? Yast doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I have eth config issues, grub issues, application update issues, security config issues, right now i just want security login issues to be fixed so im not asked a thousand times for my admin rights.
I am experiencing real buggyness in firefox 3.6.3. Sometimes when I click on any button e.g. this form (submit new thread), I get no response whatsoever. It lacks that responsive feel. Might I mention that it happened some of the time. Its probably not because of the ISP because I didn't have any problem before when I was using Vista. Maybe it was because I meddled with things like this and tweaking some stuff in the about:config. I'm out of ideas.
I'm wondering why everytime I install "recomended" updates, my KDE or X server crashes completely! is there any guide or advice you can give me to succesfully update only the packages that are really needed?
I have installed Suse 11.3 on my computer yesterday but since then I have been trying to update it but unable to do so. Everytime I try I get this error message: "system management is locked by the application with pid 6953 (usr/sbin/packagekitd). close this appliaction before trying again."
I had fuzzy icons in system tray so before couple of days i installed some updates and after that i have floating point exception in ktorrent and virtualbox 184.108.40.206-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-12-13 11:13:53 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Last winter we had the intention of using VMWare branded Novell Suse Enterprise as we were going to be getting the licenses/subscription through the purchase of Vsphere. Since that time we have set up 4 VMs, and have been testing an application that will soon be going into production status. However a new issue has arisen. As we are over budget we will not get the Vsphere license (which included Suse subscription). We also found that the added features of a Vsphere license do not really add anything over the free ESX hypervisor.
On the one hand these servers have all been configured precisely, on the other hand we have no update service from which I understand we would need a Novell subscription. Most of the repositories we have added are external to Novell, meaning they are community ones. So my questions are this:
1.) Can we use Opensuse community repositories for the Online Update?
2.) If not is there a way to easily 'convert' Enterprise Suse to Opensuse?
Obviously what we first want to avoid is having to do a brand new install of Opensuse and spend the time moving data from the old to the new. One of the issues that has caused the delay and over runs is that the application we will be deploying has not lived up to its promises, and has caused considerable amount of time configuring, tweaking, and de-bugging.
I used OpenSuse 11.2 and tried to update it to 11.4 from iso, choosing "update" in the installation dialogue. It went ok, but at first boot something failed and I got the following:
" doing fast boot FATAL: Module amd74xx not found FATAL: ide_pci_generic not found
Like this. Then if I choose Y, it starts up to the login screen, but the image is blurry and unreadable. It even logs in, but the desktop is still unreadable. When I choose to boot "failsafe" mode, it boots normally, all graphics look ok. What could I do to boot normal system? I have never experienced any problems like this with Suse 11.2. If I go to the console and type mount /dev/sda1 from failsafe boot, it returns "according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /" I have AMD Athlon Dual Core 4850e and nVidia GeForce 6150SE, Suse is the only OS installed.
PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2/' My 11.2 won't update and gives this error. Anyone know how to fix it?
I have a SUSE 10 sp2 server that I am using for hosting VMware and virtual machines. I have installed the basic host machine with only file server enabled (no dns, dhcp, print services or anything else). This is the fifth time I have had to reinstall because after I applied all the updates the system downloaded, it would not boot with a cd/dvdrom mounted. I tried everything I knew hot to do, which I admit isn't much (edited the fstab, tried to mount through command line) but nothing brought it back.
this all started because I had the entire machine loaded with VMware, two virtual machines, and all was well until I decided to update the OES2 sp1 virtual machines. All manor of issues cropped up like corn in the summer. So I reloaded after a week because I couldn't fix the problems and decided in my limited knowledge the updates probably caused the issues, and there was no undoing the updates. I assume (dangerous as that may be) that I applied too many updates to my bare system, but I would like a more experienced opinion.
Today I did a fresh install of 11.04 (beta), but I have the same problem on my 10.10 box too. However, I know it's not right, since my laptop and upstairs box (both running 10.10) look fine.The problem is that Scribus looks like a Windows 95 application. I assume that the problem may be with the Qt support.I installed the Qt setting manager and set the theme to GTK+, but it had no effect.
I am transferring from Word into Scribus a 20 chapter novel and would welcome some guideance. There are no images, only text. I do have the Scribus Offical Manual but find sections of it confusing. Can someone give me some guidance on:use of Master Pages. Do I have to set up a separate one for each chapter? Will this allow me to insert page numbers in the header area?Will I have to link the text frames (pages) of each chapter?
I use Scribus 1.4.4 without any changes from the Debian stable repository.
Each time when I edit text in the layout mode (not in the text editor) the program crashes with a "signal #11" message:
Code: Select all$ scribus TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored. TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored. TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored. TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored. Scribus Crash ------------- Scribus crashes due to Signal #11 Calling Emergency Save Segmentation fault
On Wheezy I was using Scribus also, but without such problems. Unfortunately I often need to use the text editing in the layout mode in order to adjust the text flow for the final layout.
I have already open a thread in scribus forum but I am not sure if they know the solution, and I don't think is specifically related to scribus. I am receiving a generic unknown cmake error with QT5 library when try to compile Scribus 1.5, probably I need to install some library more but which?
I use Scribus for designing leaflets and broshures. Unfortunately with the most recent version in the stable branch the program crashes each time I try to edit text in layout mode. I didn't have this problem in older versions. So I wonder if this is a bug others noticed in Scribus 1.4.4 on Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 32-bit.
For normal text editing I use the text edit mode anyway but when I try to fix line breaks it's always hard to not instantly see what I am doing. So even if I just want to insert a single character the program crashes with the following message: Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
What would be the preferred method to establish a remote desktop session from one 11.2 machine to another 11.2 machine in the same location? No firewalls, local connection only. I've looked at VNC, RDP with xrdp, have not been able to establish a session to desktop. I would rather not use desktop sharing if possible, don't want invitations involved. Want something similar to hitting from Windows with VNC3and taking over the established desktop session. This is in my house, no security risks involved
I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 and it runs great. However, I cannot access my 2nd hard drive. I usually have two 160gb drives in my system. one for OS and programs the other for data. I wiped the OS drive before the install and detached the data drive until after the install. Suse can see the drive but wont allow me access to it. i suspect its because i have used a new user name and password.
I logged on my ibm600e with SUSE 11.1 + on Thanksgiving and auto update started and is still running today 12/02/2009. Pentium cpu is at 77 to 97% 93% memory usage plus some swap usage. Ethernet and wireless are activeily working
also separately the CD ROM is not detecting/detected except by the hardware report I sent in. My external Zip100 Is visible. as is the plug in floppy drive
I don't mean this to be in any way a critical post but I've recently switched to Debian from numerious other distros because of it elidged stability and speed. However I'm using the stable version and frequently have to reboot for certain things to work and frequently multimedia based programs crash on me. I've installed the repo from debian-multimedia.org so I don't know if that's causeing any problems. It crashes on me multiple times a day. Now it's not the OS itself which is the problem I'm sure but more the software in the repos. However it was my udnerstanding that this software was pretty darn well tested.
Whenever I move files from a USB memory stick or external hard drive or any other such device the file only seems to transfer 99% of the data and often during moving file operations will freeze and an offer of 'force quit' will come up (although file operations will eventually vanish with the 99% of the file being moved).
Can anything be done to rectify problems with file operations?
Whenever I open a folder using the gnome panel (places,) Nautilus runs and the window looks like it was designed when the first GUI was. It's all grey and doesn't match the rest of the GUI at all.However, when I gksudo nautilus in Terminal, the window that opens looks perfectly fine and how it should look.Also, the messed up nautilus does not have a bar with File, edit, and the other options.
