OpenSUSE Hardware :: Completely New To Suse And Drivers For Radeon HD 6850?

Jun 26, 2011

Ive been a ubuntu user for about 3 years now, but lately I wanted to find something new. Ubuntu is beginning to feel less and less like "linux". So anyway I am having a bit of trouble getting my gfx card working in suse. I have a AMD Radeon HD 6850. In ubuntu I just get a popup says that restricted drives are available, and i click to install them. but In suse im not quite sure what to do. I believe I have the drives installed correctly, but I get a AMD watermark in the bottom right corner of my screen saying my hardware is unsupported.

What is the easiest way to get the latest working drivers for my video card? and keep them updated properly with each kernel update like in ubuntu? btw, im running openSUSE 11.4 64-bit.

I know this has been asked before, but im a complete noob to suse and I cant seem to find a answer that im able to understand.Other than this issue with my graphics driver I love everything else.

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.3 On Dell E6410 - Screen Went Completely Black

Feb 27, 2011

I have my brand new Dell latitude e6410 delivered with Windows 7 already installed. I want a dual boot and I decided to try SUSE for the first time. I used the installation DVD, the installation seemed to end up well. The problem is that already at the first reboot, the screen went completely black. By pressing ctrl-alt-del I can reboot the laptop. It seems to me a problem with the graphic card.

My setup is:
Dell Latitude e6410
Intel i5 m560 @2.67 GHz
nVidia NVS 3100M
4Gb DDR ram
Intel 82577LM Gigabit Network connector

If I start in failsafe mode, the X server starts, I have KDE, although with a somewhat sketchy graphic, I can use SUSE almost normally. The main problem in this case being that the system doesn't find any ethernet/wi-fi device, so I cannot connect to the Internet (I'm writing from Win7 right now). I tried choosing the default SUSE boot with the additional boot option "nomodeset" at the grub prompt. This is a suggestion mentioned in another post on this forum, although in that case the problem was coming from a bug dealing with an Intel graphic card. The system goes up but then kde doesn't start. I'm asked to lgin at a prompt. If I try to launch kde from command line (startkde), it complains that the variable $DISPLAY is not setup.

This is where I am now. I'm quite out of ideas, so I want to ask you few things. First stupid question: is the problem coming likely from the drivers of the nvidia graphic card? Second question: in that case, how can I fix it, considering that the linux partition is "isolated"? The fact that in failsafe SUSE doesn't see any network adapter concerns me a bit.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Hanwang (Hanvon) Artmaster III Tablet Not Working Completely In SUSE 11.4

Aug 28, 2011

the contact between the pencil and the tablet-drawing-surface does not result in activation. The only way get the pen drawing is by pushing the middle button on the tablet (there are a row of buttons in one side of tablet).By drawning in this rather awkward way a lot of unstable behavior is detected (freezing, drop outs etc.). The same problem occurred in ubuntu 10.10 with linux 2.6.37, in 11.4 with 2.6.38 and 2.6.39 it was gone. I believe that the problem might by in the kernel! In openSUSE i have this kernels , and non of them seems to have the solution that makes the Hanwang work well.. Is it some kind of patch that are missing in openSUSE or is something not set up correct?

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Crashes - New Installation Of SuSE 11.3?

Aug 29, 2010

I've installed SuSE 64 11.3 (with updates) as a new installation 4 times because of video driver problems. On the 3rd installation Firefox crashes. I had no difficulties with 11.2 with the same hardware. I followed CAF's suggestion to another user to add it to the repo list and run a zypper install. No difference. I've added no new hardware. I then re-installed SuSE and made no changes to any setting or driver, but again, no Firefox continues to crash.


Video card: ATI HD 5870 running I believe at 1920x1200

SUSE :: OpenSUSE Crashes - Freezes When Turn Off My Monitor

Jul 6, 2009

Last friday I went home from work and just turned off my monitor, as a program I had written needed to run a durability test over the weekend. Unfortunately it seems that the moment I turned off my monitor, Linux just froze, quite evidently as it said this morning that the time was still Friday 17:13.

From the syslog I got the following on that time:

What this means and what I can do? It's not the first time it crashes as soon as I turn my monitor off.

Slackware :: Several X-server Crashes Since Update From Last Monday

Jan 13, 2011

I'm running Slackware64-current. Since the upgrade of last Monday I'm experiencing several crashes of the X-server. It begins with an issue that one Window, e.g. Konsole or Firefox don't become active when clicking them. After some seconds the screen becomes dark and I end up on the console. First error I saw was from akonadi. Deinstalling akonadi didn't change anything. But there is an errormessage about a segmentation-fault in the Xorg.0.log. I'll append the logfile to this post. My graphics-card is an ATI HD5470 and have fglrx installed, downloaded from ATI. My kernel is

Fedora :: Cisco VPN Crashes 11 Completely?

Oct 19, 2009

I'm running fedora 11 and cisco version 4.8.01 (0640). When I connect to my work, and get authenticated, the system freezes completely. In searching it looks like at one point updating the kernel to a new version resolved this, at least for the 64bit implementation. I'm running 32bit and I'm on kernel kernel-PAE- which is a newer version then what was listed in the other thread.

OpenSUSE :: Eclipse Crashes After Update (On 11.3)

Sep 4, 2010

My Eclipse crashes after some updates on 11.3

I got an error :
The program 'Eclipse' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 163951 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I googled and found some solutions by downgrading xulrunner, but no dice.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse 10.2 Want To Update To 11.2?

Jun 13, 2010

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...

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

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?

OpenSUSE :: Suse Update Service For Enterprise Version?

Jul 17, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Find /dev/sda1 After Update From Suse 11.2

May 22, 2011

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.

SUSE / Novell :: Program To Completely Destroy All Data In Free Space On Hard Drive?

Aug 10, 2010

I dont want to wipe the whole drive, and i don't want to delete only particular files. I want to completely destroy all data in free space.I've found some articles about secure-delete package for linux that would allow erasing freespace with the command 'sfill,' but I can't find it in the repositories nor through google. This would be ideal but it seems maybe it's debian only.

SUSE :: GYachI Crashes In 11.3?

Aug 21, 2010

Alright. The day before yesterday I *upgraded* to SUSE 11.3 from 11.2 and other than one single exception that required my input, all went smooth as silk for the install.

I was excited to see that, in Kopete, my webcam, a Microsoft VX-3000 actually worked for the first time! But I discovered that apparently Kopete doesn't support voice chat, even though webcam works.

So after searching for an application that would do BOTH webcam AND voice, I found out about GYachI/GYachE. It was installed via RPM from Packman. The install didn't appear to have any exceptions when it took place. However, whenever, in KDE, I attempt to start GYachE, before the window for it can even appear for more than 1/4 second, it disappears, evidently crashing (I gather).

Now I am not super Linux savvy. There is so much I have not learned, and one of those things is how to find out what failed when starting this application. I assume there is some sort of log file, but I have no idea where it is, what it is called, or how to use it even if it does exist.

I can live without voice chat, but I sure would like to have it! I have searched for an answer and found nothing to help so far.

BTW, I am using the 64 bit version of SuSE 11.3. I wonder if that has to do with the problem...

I am loving 11.3 so far. I use KDE and plan on adding stuff from the KDE site. 11.3 seems to be a solid distro from my end. I hope there is a way to solve this issue.

SUSE :: How To Update SUSE 10 Sp2 Without Corrupting Files

Jun 16, 2009

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.

Hardware :: SUSE 11.1 & 11.2 Installation Crashes At About 16%

Feb 2, 2010

I have been running SUSE 10.3,& 11.1 on a box for some while. I have changed the Mobo from an ASUS K8N to a Gigabyte K8N Pro. I have changed the Graph Card from a 180Mb GF 3 to a 256Mb GF6800 GT. I have tried to install both Suse 11.1 & 11.2 from downloaded ISO images,
checked the medium - both OK, (I have previously installed 11.1 from the same DVD on to the original box, no probs). With both 11.1 & 11.2, on booting, from the DVD, the install goes OK through the first stages, ie up to installing the packages, to about 16% completed,then it stops. Everything becomes dead, mouse, keyboard, complete crash. I have tried the install 3/4 times always with the same result, on two separate hard disks,one SATA & one IDE, it is obviously something to do with the hardware changes as everything else in the box remains the same as when previous installs went OK, & all worked well. The box works well with Win XP installed on a separate Hard Disk.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: X Server Crashes With Nvidia Drivers?

Aug 2, 2010

i've been attempting to get to the bottom of this issue for the past few months, without much luck. i'm currently running 11.3 64-bit (the issue also existed in my previous 11.2 64-bit install) and whenever my laptop is unplugged, the x server will intermittently crash. this issue can be provoked by running flash applications like videos but the same issue will also occur by simply navigating the desktop. the messages log reports the following:

x server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

the laptop is an alienware m15x with an nvidia gtx 260m. i initially suspected that this was some sort of an acpi issue so i tried disabling acpi for the nvidia card via the "connecttoacpid" xorg option. this did not make any difference so i went as far as shutting down the acpid service. this also did not make any difference. as a quick test, i uninstalled the proprietary nvidia drivers and that seemed to resolve the issue but given the limited functionality of the oss driver, this is not a suitable workaround. keep in mind, i did not run under the oss driver for very long so this result could be just a false positive.

Fedora X86/64bit :: 14 Completely Unusable; Probably Because Kernel Update

May 24, 2011

My main systems runs Fedora 14 x64 with the latest updates (I can't check anymore, but I believe it has the .13.91 x64 kernel). Since this afternoon it became unsuable. First, Opera Browser crashed and the crash report app of the browser showed up. Clicking one of the options there resulted to X crash, if I understood what really went on. No input, mouse or kb, I couldn't go to tty etc. I had to do a hard reset. Next boot proceeded normally up to the point that GNOME desktop is fully loaded. ABRT began reporting numerous kernel oops.
Rebooted again (noticed that init.d fails, so hard reset again) and tried past two kernel versions, same results.
Yum crashes and so does everything. I tried to revert all recent updates with yum history, but yum crashed.

Last update was May 22, and it updated kmod-nvidia.


uname -a
Linux innovator #1 SMP Tue May 3 13:23:06 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
initial crash
Package: kernel


before the reboot Opera 11.11 had crashed and it's own bug report tool came up. Clicking the "do not report this error now" option probably crashed X, because the screen went black and no input was possible (no mouse or keybord, so I couldn't go to tty either. Had to do a hard reset) Bug Reports:Kernel oops report was uploaded

One of the numerous crashes
