OpenSUSE :: Info Diriectory Displays Empty?

Sep 19, 2010

When I say info, I get an empty document: nfo: (dir)Top, 1 linii --AllWhen I say info -f /usr/share/info/dir, I get the same.When I open /usr/share/info/dir in KWrite, I notice that there are tabulations in the Node: declaration.When I removed these tabulations, the directory suddenly displayed all right (info -f /tmp/dir).So I tried the same thing with the file extracted from the current package, and it contains tabulation characters, so I can see nothing there with info.

Debian :: Monitor Info In System Settings -> Displays

Jan 18, 2016

I am running Wheezy 7.9 and recently created a file, in xorg.conf.d, to set the monitor configuration because the EDID is not always read from the monitor. Everything works great but when the EDID is not read the monitor name, as shown in System Settings>Displays, shows as Unknown. I have the vendor info and modelname in the config file but they do not show in the Display GUI. Is there some variable that I can set in order to get a good monitor name displayed?

Probably should include some more information. I am using the Gnome Classic desktop and gdm manager. Here is the monitor conf file that I put in /etc/X11/xorg,conf.d

Code: Select allSection "Monitor"
  Identifier "Monitor0"
  VendorName "VSC"
  ModelName "VA912b"
  DisplaySize 376 301
  HorizSync 30.0 - 82.0
  VertRefresh 50.0 - 85.0
[Code] ....

OpenSUSE :: Switch Between Multiple Displays Automatically?

May 26, 2011

I've been tasked with setting up a wall board display monitor for our monitoring applications and it's got to look good! I was hoping to use opensuse 11.4 & the KDE desktop effect of the cube and I'm trying to find a way to make the screens rotate in a timed manner.

Is this possible and if not can anyone suggest a good way to switch between multiple displays automatically?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Displays Blank Login Screen?

Aug 13, 2011

I have opensuse 11.4 installed with both gnome and kde. These are the things I did before the problem:

1. changed the login screen to oxygen login screen

2. Then I logged off and when again logging in, I chose the session as Metacity.

But unfortunately, the the blank splash screen appeared and it didnt get into the desktop. Then I did a hard restart (By pressing the power button). Since then, I cannot login. The login screen is blank left only a active mouse pointer. Even booting into failsafe also didnt work.

By the way, I have chosen the option of directly logging in without password prompt at login. (during installation)

Only a week before i did a clean install since i corrupted the grub, dont wanna install again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get Info On The Opensuse Directory Tree?

Aug 17, 2010

I am looking for explanations on how Opensuse utilizes the root directories. Like what decides if a program goes in /bin vs /sbin vs /usr/bin etc...In other words, a breakdown of the directory structure and how each part is utilized. I am trying to get more familiar with it so it will be easier for me to locate things and I will know where to look for X part of a program that does Y.

OpenSUSE :: Get Info About Crashing App?

Nov 30, 2010

I've installed quantum GIS on opensuse 11.3 gnome, so far so good. I run the app and it opens fine. To get the app to use data on the HD you get a dialogue box with a browse button. It should just be a case of clicking browse and selecting the required data file. Unfortunately when I click on browse the app crashes. I've no idea how to get info about the crash in an attempt to solve the problem. Had a similar problem with gimp in suse 11 kde could only fix it by updating the os to 11.3.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Remove Empty File?

Mar 2, 2011

I was copying an .avi file to an external hard drive and half way through the copy the drive reset and required remounting. Consequently I have an empty .avi file on the hard drive. I tried to recopy the file and overwrite, but I keep getting 'Could not write to media/harddrive/filename.avi'. I tried to rename to file to be copied but got the same response, I cannot delete the empty file either, as I get an error telling I cannot delete it. I have tried to do this as the user and root with the same result.Any other file I tried to copy onto the external hard drive is fine, just this one zero length file and the file I was trying to copy, the original of the file. I also tried to delete the file on another computer but couldn'tExternal hard drive is a WD elements ntfs, which works great except for this glitch.

OpenSUSE Install :: All Filesystems Vanish (look Empty) After A While

Jan 17, 2010

I have a mysterious filesystem issue with openSUSE on an old machine. Installation wasn't very pleasant but worked finally. It boots fine. However after 5 or 10 minutes, all filesystems vanish. Most programs (but not all) cannot be found anymore. "ls" output is empty everywhere. "top" used to work (it was working on a ssh connection that I just lost). Now it complains about unset TERM variable. I was able to set it again to xterm. Now "top" is working, displays the running processes : mysqld, Xorg, icewm (my WM), nothing strange there, nobody is eating up the resources. I have other linux installed on that machine : Ubuntu freezes occasionally, mostly with Gnome, but it seems to be a totally different problem (maybe related to the radeon driver) ; Mandriva works fine so far. The two IBM 120 GB harddrives are quite old but the manufacturer fitness test didn't find failures. I also checked for bad sectors before formating in openSUSE setup. It doesn't look like a physical I/O problem. In such a case, it would crash or at least complain about not being able to access the HD. Well ... I switched to console but I didn't get any login prompt and now I cannot switch back to X. I can still ping the machine but of course not ssh to it. SysReq keys (although enabled) doesn't work. I guess I will have to reboot brutally. Last time it took me about one houre of pressing 'y' tp repair the filesystem with Ubuntu. I'm sure I will be back soon. What do you guys think about that situation ? I suspect a kernel issue with that hardware. Have you heard about similar problems ? I'm afraid I will have to reinstall 11.1, which used to work fine, on that machine.

Some details about the hardware : The (onboard) Promise controller and the SATA controller are not used. The 2 HD are on the first IDE interface as master and slave.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Installation To Empty 2GB Partition

Mar 26, 2010

I gave upon 11.3 M4.Tried installation by text mode but there's another screen showing various USB devices status superimposing on the Linux text install. Returned to Live installation via Live CD. Installation completed > restart >autoconfig failed. Tried live installation again but Suse kept suggesting installing into one of the empty 2 Gb partitions. Also had problems with Gparted Live 0.5.1-1 CD because somehow the keys froze. Had to replace it with 0.5.2-1. I am installing 11.2 on a laptop but right now I am stuck with frozen "Creating cache files for fontconfig". This has taken over an hour and nothing seems to be happening. I have successfully installed openSUSE 11.2 on an older laptop and a desktop. Also experienced installing Windows 7, Ubuntu and PC-BSD on both types of machines.

OpenSUSE Install :: Partition Info Stored In A Log File?

Jul 1, 2011

having repartitioned a disk yesterday but uwisely not obliterating a DOS OEM partition, came down to find the machine had woken up & booted the wrong disk (one I partitioned but without ne OS); with apparently dead (unwilling to seek main drive).

Trouble is the OEM diagnostics was old DOS and likes to **** on other disk partition tables and it seems to have got run, from what was the OEM Windows disk. Now I've fixed that, it seems to be screwed partition table issue.

No problem, it happened before and I recovered with gpart(8) & a spot of tweaking, but due to "redevelopment" I've now got my partition table backups on the disk that's lost. The old backup of them, got tidied. gpart's for once only finding the partitions I don't care about eg) swap & a Windows 7 NTFS backup partition.

Have some logfiles from 11.1 days, which may if it gets recorded somewhere by YaST or other in /var/log actually have the table output. Any one happen to know, where to look as a time saver?

I'd like to get these system partitions back, as I put in bugs on 12.1 M2, as well as an 11.4 and older 11.2 install for comparison. Wasn't planning on re-installing, when I get asked to try something later on.
