SUSE :: Improperly Shutdown Suse - Restore Gnome To Automatically Load The Default User On Start Up
Jun 30, 2010
I am new to Linux and wow, it did not take me long to run into a huge snag. I am running Suse Linux Enterprise 10 on a laptop and by some strange reason the computer froze from overheating and I was forced to shutdown improperly. Once I restarted it booted right to the command prompt when it usually instead boots to the default user. I managed to get gnome running using the "startx gnome" command. But when gnome loads, none of my normal extentions load like my wireless driver, the sound driver, etc. how to restore gnome to automatically load the default user on start up or fix any other damage I might have done? lol
After a normal upgrade , my suse 11.1 does not want to go out. pressing rigth button on desktop or the other ways to obtain shutdown it no longer work I can I hear the sound but desktop rest at place. it possible to shutdown sistem only starting shell an typing su/ (psw) shutdown -h now ..
When I installed OpenSUSE 11.3, it had this nice shortcut panel in the left-centre of the screen displaying shortcuts to Firefox,My Computer, OpenOffice & a few others. Somehow I knocked this entire panel off the screen & I don't know what I clicked on in the desktop area but I think it was either the 'Add Widgets' or 'Remove this Panel'. Either way, does anyone know how to restore it as it was really handy and if yes, would you also know how to add more shortcuts onto it?
When I try to shutdown, logout, reboot using the graphical interface (Menu, Leave and then shutdown,reboot,..), I get the shutdown window and when I press the shutdown button, nothing happens. When I issue in a terminal window 'shutdown -h now' the system shuts down however. Does someone had a simular problem and if so how did they resolve it. Note that I use the 64 bit version of Suse 11.3 on a Dell Precison T5400 with a NVidea G290 card (using the NVidea drivers).
I am using Suse 11.2 with KDE4.3. Unfortunately i deleted the Task Manager on footer by uclicking the "Remove this Task Manager". But i am unable to get it back. It looks really weierd to see monitor withiut that. Formated the PC to get back that task manager.
As I've updated Firefox to version 3.0.5, this problem has appeared:en I close Firefox it asks whether it should save open tabs state. I answer "YES", but when I restart Firefox I see only a blank page...Deleting .mozilla folder in my home directory didn't change this behavior.
Just recently upgraded from SuSE 11.0 to 11.3 and one of the first things I did was to close/deleted the Desktop Folder...!!! Just a simple slip of my mouse did it! After several days of searching my system and the internet I need your help. Can I restore this folder? If so, how?
Hardware issue forced me to restore Win7. Installed EasyBCD to boot into openSUSE, no work. Boot puppy, it shows space where SUSE should be as unallocated space. I think Puppy doesn't see ext4 though. Can't boot live KDE off USB for some reason, though I originally installed from that exact medium. Tried ACPI=off and nomodeset. Error says trouble mounting clic filesystem, mounted as read only. Something like that. Then reboot 120secs, which it never actually does. I don't want to reinstall SUSE if I don't have to.
i have a RAMdisk set up on my desktop with a hidden folder of stuff in it; but i want to know is it possible for me to set ubuntu to copy the files to another directory on shutdown, and copy back again on startup?
Setup: 1. Desktop running WinXP 2. Lenovo S10e netbook running Win7RC1 (just expired.) no DVD drive. 3. 1 DVD by Novell and Lenovo with "SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (For recovery select Restore System from the initial Menu.) November 2008" 4. 4GB USB drive. Laptop can boot from it.
Problem: Need to install the system to the Laptop using the USB drive. Doesn't install. What I did: Mostly followed the guide at "Installation without CD - openSUSE.htm" my USB drive is G:
used the HP USB Disk storage format tool to make my USB bootable. Copied all files from the dvd to the usb drive Moved G: ooti386loader* to G: Deleted E: isolinux.bin Renamed E: isolinux.cfg to E: syslinux.cfg Downloaded syslinux-3.85.zip from [kernel.org] Extract syslinux-3.85.zip to c: syslinux CD'ed to c: syslinuxwin32 directory in a cmd prompt Ran syslinux -ma E: .....
Result: Runs all the way through, gets to a windowed program called ">>> Linuxrc v3.0.20 (Kernel 220.127.116.11-31-default) <<<" Code: could not find the openSUSE Repository. Activating manual setup program
Main Menu: Settings, System Information, Kernel Modules (Hardware Drivers), Start installation or System, Verify Installation CD-ROM/DVD, Eject CD, Exit or Reboot, Power off Cant find anything on the usb drive (obviously?) so what do I do now?
This is where I'm at and quite stuck... not sure what other flags there are to use, what I have to move around or rename.
created a user but i forgot to change the home directory permission.so after user created when i go to the user and group mangement i cant see that permission filed related to the home permission directory.my purpose is to stop accessing other user to my home directory,how it can be possible??
I bought this laptop several years ago. It had Vista. Just long enough for me to download SUSe, nuke and pave the HD and install Linux. Recently I upgraded from 1 GB to 4 GB of RAM, the maximum that is allowed given the motherboard (based on from what I am able to learn the Intel 945 chipset).
After upgrading to 4 GB, the machine (according to "My Computer") only sees 2.9 GB. I understand that under an earlier version of the BIOS that the machine would not recognize the RAM correctly. Additionally the "My Computer" page lists the display as "Intel 945GM". My problem is that I can find no Linux utility to flash the BIOS on this machine-- Toshiba only provides the BIOS included in an .exe file for either XP or Vista. I am hesitant to use the BIOS for the Intel 945 series motherboards from their site.
I am running memory test on SUSE, Memory test is just writing some patterns into a memory and reading it back in all CPU threads. After a while, when memory test is running in the background , I am trying to reset the system by echo b> /proc/sysrq-trigger command, Upon SUSE warm reset , I am seeing some UNCORRECTABLE MEMORY ERROR in model specific register (MSR : 0x421),
I am seeing this behavior on one of my server which has huge amount of memory.,Have you ever seen this UCECC error when SUSE generates warm reset when memory test in the background ?
I've got several language multimedia CD-Rom's, made for Windows 95/98/98 SE and 2000, that I'm using by means of my daughter's old PC (Win 98 SE O.S.). However I noticed, also, that you can perfectly use them even with Windows Vista. What I'd like to know is if you can use them even with Suse/Novell and (why not?) OpenSuse Linux.
OK... I tried everything i could think of... but i still cannot get my Open SUSE 11.1 to mount my samba share at boot! I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S. My shares originate from a Windows Server 2003 RC2 machine, and it's dns server doesn't work correctly... so my mount command is
mount -t //192.168.x.x/files/ /nET/ -o username=linux,password=xxxxxx please let me know what other info you need... I don't have the internet, so it will be tommorow b4 i see this again!!! Thanks
When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory.
i have windows 7 installed on my laptop and working fine..i want to install Open Suse 11.2 along side. I tried installing by booting with DVD for Suse. But it gave me warning to delete the windows partition.I would like to keep the partition intact with windows 7 and install Suse. Any suggestions ?I can create partition on my laptop but i do not want to modify the current windows structure.
how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.
I have a disturbing problem with my monitor which goes to sleep (or ??) after few minutes if my comp is not used and most of the time I have to restart my comp.I disabled everything in Powersave , but nothing. I did have that problem in previous versions of SUSE, but somehow, I solved that. I cant remember what I did then.
I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.
I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.
