I have a problem with trying to connect to VPN over linux. From OSX and Windows the VPN connection goes through fine. It was working flawlessly, for the last one month I never used the laptop or the VPN, however after booting recently 1 week ago the VPN always show as timedout. Some details about the vpn / pptp connection details:
I don't use a KDE or Gnome, but want to have USB and cdrom media automounted by ivman. That worked fine with OS 11.1 (with the help of a selfmade "mountpolicies.fdi"). I installed and started ivman on a freshly installed and up-to-date OS 11.2 running icewm as WM, but an USB stick or USB disk is only automounted if ivman is restarted after every insertion of the device, or if it is present at boot time.
I moved an LVM to a new computer, but everytime I reboot I have to do vgchange -ay and then mount it. I tried putting it in fstab, but it seems it doesn't work because the volume group is disabled when booted
I am using Suse since 6.5. I am no linux-expert, just power-user for years (no windows, no MAC OS X) at 3 computers at home and at work.
I just did two bare-bone-installs from up-to-date dvds with opensuse 11.3 at two almost identical Dell Inspirion 6400-Laptops. Clear, flawless installation without any workarounds... Same install at a Dell Desktop Computer without any problems. Automatic updating.
But both Laptops are having problems to read and show inserted data-cdroms. Knowing from the old versions and the new opensuse 11.3 at the desktop-PC what should happen, I have no clue what to do.
It is definitely no technical problem: - the name of the inserted data-cdrom can be seen in k3b - inserted dvds are triggering the correct action (!) (suggestions are shown what to do with the dvd; cdrom: no results, no suggestions, just a short and proper working of the cd-device itself can be heart) - the data-cdrom can be mounted manually
What did not help: - inserting a data-cdrom as root - changing the permissions of non-root-users - several updates of opensuse 11.3 - reading several forums (the answers go into the directions newbee-who-does-not-know-how-openuse-works, wrong-installation, wrong-updating-of-an-old-opensuse-version, geek-how-screwed-up-his-installation-with-manual-wrongdoings => nothing which helps in my situation)
This is my hardware-info about the cdrom/dvd-device:
Opensuse 11.2, KDE 4.3.5I have read many articles on this forum & on the web but I am still not able to automount a data CD (I haven't tried audio yet).
I created a directory /media/cdrom I added my user name to group disk & cdrom. I added the following line to fstab (my drive is an ide cdwriter): /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom auto auto,user,rw 0 0
If I put a cd in the drive there is lots of action of the read light but nowhere within KDE that I can find to access the CD. Is it possible that making a change to 'device actions' in 'configure desktop' is what I need to do? If so, what do I enter or change?From terminal the command 'mount' does not show it mounted. At this point I can manually mount the cd.Also note that in YaST it shows up in the hardware list after probing hardware but it does not appear anywhere else in YaST (and I don't know if it is supposed to show up).
How can I get opensuse 11.2 to automount sd cards? Until recently I had SD card reader of my laptop turned off in BIOS, now I turned it on and hardware wise it is working fine (I can mount SD cards manually) - but how can I get opensuse to mount the cards automatically upon insertion? (is working for other media) It probably something trivial, but I missed it...
Only noticed this a few days ago & it only affects CD/DVD's, USB drives automount just fine.After doing lots of searching, noticed that a lot of people are having this issue too. Only didn't work out how to resolve this annoying behaviour.When I burn a CD/DVD K3b accepts that I have valid meia & proceeds to burn, when the disc has been burnt out it pops. So I re-insert the disc & no automounting?I have put myself in the 'cdrom' & 'disk' groups, just to ensure it wasn't something I'd not done. It was working fine last time I checked, so don't think it's that.
I want to be able to easily mount and unmount my pendrives, and I want them to be automounted as soon as they are plugged in.However:The plasmoid Device Notifier does not automount. The plasmoid device notifier with automount is not being developed anymore (AFAIK) and I haven't been able to install it. Whenever I mount a pendrive with the Device Notifier and write sth to it with thunderbird, I can't unmount it afterwards.I don't know how to get ivam working. Halevt is not in the repositories.Therefore, I tried with the following messed up alternative:1) I placed the following script in the autostart folder:
Once I insert a UDF-based DVD, such as a movie or Windows 7 OS install DVD, the disc will not automount in the GNOME desktop. As a result, Nautilus and other gnome programs like Brasero, cannot read the disk.
However, KDE-based apps like k3b and k9copy are perfectly able to detect a DVD with the UDF filesystem for burning or extracting data. The disc drive is a Plextor PX-716SA SATA-based model. The problem seems to be endemic to openSUSE 11.3, as UDF-based DVDs automount perfectly fine in Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows Vista on the same computer. In fact, these DVDs had no problems automounting in openSUSE 11.2 prior to performing a clean install of 11.3. Manually mounting such a DVD does work, using a command such as:
Code: sudo mount -t udf /dev/sr0 /mnt -o ro,session=0,lastblock=1 The DVD movie can be accessed from VLC media player and mplayer, but nevertheless, gnome apps like brasero cannot be used. Why is this happening?
I searched for solutions on these and other forums and I came across these posts here, and here. The solutions proposed therein did not work, including modifying auto.misc and fstab. In another thread on these forums, modifying fstab for removable media was discouraged in versions 11.2 and 11.3.
Running 11.3, KDE 4.4.Have searched all over hell on the Internet, no solution found.When I insert a data CD or data DVD created with K3B sometime in the past, the Device Notifier pops up with NO description of the device plugged in. After it goes away, I can hover over it and it will say the name of the device which is the volume label of the backup CD or DVD.However, when I go to Konqueror, there is nothing showing under /media.If I run Dolphin and view the Places menu, the CD shows up there, I can double click on it and open it.
In Device Notifier Settings, under Removable Devices, I have Enable Automatic Mounting of Removable Media checked, as well as Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before, and Automatically Mount Removable Media When Attached.The CD inserted does appear in the Attached Devices list in the Removable Devices.If I put a CD in and check Konqueror, it does not show under /Media. If I then load Dolphin, it shows in the Places menu and under /Media. THEN if I go back to Konqueror, without doing anything else, it will THEN show up in /Media.If I then close Dolphin and eject the CD/DVD, it disappears from /Media as expected. If I then reinsert the DVD into the drive, without opening Dolphin, it will re-appear in Konqueror under /Media as it should.Why isn't this working properly in Konqueror? It's a massive annoyance.There is zero documentation for Device Notifier available and especially for setting up Device Settings.At one point, I thought that "Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before" might be the problem, so I unchecked it. But it does appear to be the problem.
I don't know why KDE 4.4 can't do what KDE 3.5 did - just automatically mount CDs/DVDs and USB devices without a lot of rigmarole and undocumented settings and with a simple selection of what you want to do with the mounted device (which I usually just ignore, select nothing, and go look at the inserted device with Konqueror). This was simple and worked. Now it's a nightmare and I see from browsing the forums that a lot of people have had problems with automounting.
11.3 in use with KDE. When I plug in an USB stick or my HTC phone into the USB connector the device is recognised but can't be opened in dolphin. This is the error message:

how to get openSUSE 11.2 to automount a USB drive (Creative Zen to be precise) to a static mount point? At the moment KDE is filling up my media folder with disc-x folders and the podcatching software keeps picking the wrong one to sync to. It's not my PC so command-line mounting is out of the question.
When I plug my USB drive in, the kernel sees it and I can mount it manually. However, it won't automount. I've done plenty of google searches but nothing I've tried has worked for 'GNOME, SUSE 11.3.' I am not sure if it is a permissions problem, configuration problem, a kernel automount, HID, or USB problem.

Got an old SUSE box from a friend, installed 11.3, got a few items: 1. didn't see any prompts to enter monitor info during install, control center shows as generic. Read about 'sax2' (hope that's right) but can't find it on my system or in the add-ons image. Do I need to hack monitor.conf? how? 2. installation aborted when trying to load 'textlive'.3. going into control center->mouse, the display quivers a little then I get kicked back out to the login prompt. 4. how to get kaffeine to process flv files? 5. how to get a flash drive to automount when I plug it in? I can manually mount ok. I guess that's about all for now.
First off I'm new to the openSUSE community and would just like to say So, to the issue at hand. I recently switched to openSUSE 11.4 from Debian. I noticed the setup didn't have an option encrypt the home folder like it does in Debian, so not being aware of any other way to encrypt it, I created a new partition, backed up my current home directory, created a new partition and mounted it as home before copying in the contents of the backup to the encrypted home partition I created. Now of course it is askingme to put the crypto password in at each boot, which isn't ideal because it's a family machine and no-one would remember the password but me. Is there any way of being able to automount the encrypted partition without having to put the key in every time? Or better yet an encrypted home folder that doesn't require the key to be put in on each login (as in Debian) without even using a dedicated partition.
I've got a RAID5 array that doesn't want to automount after rebooting. I'm pretty familiar with linux, RAID, and mdadm, and up until now, I've had the RAID5 array working just fine. However, whenever I reboot, the array drops off and won't remount until I manually assemble and then mount the thing. I find this odd because I had everything automounting just fine back in 10.3, and even in 11.0 (I think - not sure on that). Currently, things are working, but I'd really like to not not have to type
Code: mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 followed by Code: mount /dev/md0 /mnt/data every time I reboot. Even including this in some sort of start-up script seems kludgey... Surely there must be a more elegant way of automatically bringing up a RAID5 array after booting? I'm not sure what information you'll need, so I'm going to go ahead and include as much as I can anticipate...
I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.
Here's an example of two: //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0 //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users
I can execute a command
Code: sudo mount /home/user/mount and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.
i'm trying to automount a samba share on computers startup, everything works just fine when the network adapter is controled by traditional way ifup but when i'm switching to NetworkManager doesn't work anyway. i'm hiding the share information from the common user by using the /etc/samba/cifstab as i read on intrernet, in the cifstab i put //server/share /home/user/share cifs sername=user,password=pass,uid=1000,_netdev .could anybody give me a hint or tell me where to look?
Automount of external NTFS USB drive fails when using the Device Notifier. The automount facility failed after the last kernel update. A bug report was kindly filed by @saverios. The details are in the quote at the end of this notice. Pending resolution of the bug, we recommend that you install the following workaround: Open the file /etc/filesystems and add an entry for "ntfs" so the file looks similar to this (see last entry):
I got connecting to our NAS over NFS working perfectly. Direct NAS Reading & Writing - How? But on Saturday I found out it had stopped working. For no apparent reason, not straight after an update either I don't think. When I manually try to mount --verbose:
mount 192.168.100.14:/IHL /mnt/IHL --verbose mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon mount.nfs: timeout set for Tue Jul 6 14:48:32 2010 mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=192.168.100.14' mount.nfs: Unable to connect to 192.168.100.14:111, errno 111 (Connection refused) mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '192.168.100.14:/IHL' failed: System Error: Connection refused
Corresponding fstab line that used to work just fine. 192.168.100.14:/IHL /mnt/IHL nfs auto 0 0 For now, I can drop back to Samba but this is a PITA as I can't open OpenOffice documents and write to them directly on the NAS. The fact smb://192.168.100.14/IHL works proves networking wise we're cool too. There is no firewall between this PC and the NAS, the NAS is instructed to allow my PC's LAN IP full access. OpenSuse's software firewall has been told to allow NFS Client too. Why would this setup break out of nowhere? How can I debug this best? I see nothing relevant in /var/log/messages How can I get it to work again? A hopeful reboot didn't do its usual wonders...
How do I get pSX working? I tried copying the psx.ini file from another machine because the thread says pSX works fine after you change the sound device used, but it still segfaults when I try running it.
So, now we know where exactly the problem occures. I know only these three commands to debug using gdb. But in case of ns-2 code, I don't know how to use gdb.
I changed a routing protocol's C++ code in ns-2 and successfully recompiled ns-2 but when I run any tcl script with that particular protocol, I get 'segmentation fault'. Now I want to trace what part of the code is causing this. I have tried using 'printf's at suspectable places. Is this possible to debug ns-2 code with gdb just like the segfault.c above? I am useing fedora 9.
I am trying to write a peer to peer application in C++ using pthreads library. There are few types of nodes that run in the program. The 'beacon' nodes form the core of the network. The ordinary nodes 'join' the network by sending join requests to the beacon node. So, my program runs till the join requests and responses are received. When I try to 'connect' using connect function from the socket library, I get a segfault. I am not sure if the segfault occurs for the connect function, because sometimes the program just runs to completion. It could be an issue related to threads or memory allocation.
When I run gdb, it shows me the following: Code: (gdb) run b2-n00.ini Starting program: sv_node b2-n00.ini servant:12600> [New LWP 1] [New LWP 2] [New LWP 3] [New LWP 4] [New LWP 5] [New LWP 6] Before Exiting[LWP 1 exited] procfs: fetch_registers, get_gregs line 3768, /proc/23952/lwp/1: No such file or directory.
I usually use the following command to join several PDF files in one :gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=output.pdf input1.pdf input2.pdfHadn't have to do it for a while but today, I needed it and thus fired my script.lam! gs segfaults.A quick internet search and I found this :https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/22006Though Arch related, while I'm running slackware64-current, the behaviour was exactly the same as mine.In the above thread, one guy linked to a bug report which seems to be theculprit :http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691831gcc 4.5.1, gs 9.00, x86_64, indeed, slackware64 seems to be exactly in that situation.
