Have loved using v11.0 of Opensuse for years, lately I have noticed over time 7 of my 11 repo's have stopped/failed...does this means Novell-community has/will stop supporting this version and I should move on to a higher version ??? There hasnt been any change in my linux box for years.
Example: Refresh failed: Error: Could not refresh repository 'openSUSE-11.0-Oss': Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s) History: - File '/content' not found on medium [URL]' Error: Could not refresh repository 'openSUSE-11.0-Non-Oss': Valid metadata not found
i tried to install java jdk, and vlc, but to my surprise everytime i wanted to install a single application, a massive 500MB update appeared along with the 2 applications i wanted to install, then i tried the command line to just install one program, and got rep. errors, and several .lock errors at the command line. after hours of googling i gave up , this distro was recommended because of great laptop support, but it's a hell of trying to install a single program, with fedora i just did su -c 'yum install vim' , or ubuntu sudo apt-get install vim or slackware: installpkg vim.tgz , but opensuse was so bloated whenever i wanted to install a program or two. it is a royal pain to install anything in opensuse how do you guys deal with dependency hell in opensuse?
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.
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.
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?
New Suse 11.3 installation with Gnome desktop. Added K3B using Yast2, and after completing the install of K3B, there is no icon for K3B! Instead there is an "X" and the text for K3B in it.From the main menu -> more applications -> multimedia, is where the K3B icon is.Yast2 is supposed to install any dependencies needed or warn if it can not find any missing dependencies. What is missing, or is it a permission problem? All the other application icons seem fine.
i've always used the X11GL repo to install compiz and emerald because i've never managed tu make compiz run using X11:Compiz repo. But since some day the X11GL at Index of /repositories/X11:/XGL repo has disappeared. What's happened? How can i install emerald and its themes now?
I have been searching for 2 days and cannot find an answer. Apparently Sax2 isn't available in 11.3. It looks as if many are having the same difficulty. I've tried xrandr and tried to edit /etc/X11/Xorg.conf with no success.Copying a working xorg conf file might be a fix, I don't know.
to get flash 10 working. I just decided to update to 11.3. Bought a 8.0GB USB stick to copy files to. USB DISK icon on visible on Desktop. mounted on /media/USB DISK Clicking on device properties it is read only. I can change permissions but that is only temporary. Looking under my computer it is formated as vfat device name is /dev/sdb
I can't copy any files to it. Can't see in terminal even being root as well. Almost started the Partitioner in Yast but didn't want to accidently crash the system. That WOULD be my luck Can't find a way to format it via GUI interface. Can I use something like fdisk in terminal. I guess I need to format it as ext3.
I have SuSE 11 box. I notice that there's an entry in /etc/services that shows windream running on port 534. Can someone tell what is windream? I tried to google but it keeps bring up German website or something.
I am trying to connect to my network. I am dual-booting with windows 7 ultimate and that connects just fine. When I plug in my ethernet cable to the LAN adapter of the motherboard nothing happens. In the network manager it doesn't even acknowledge something has been connected (ie no eth0 or anything). I'm guessing that I don'tave a driver for it installed under linux. The adapter is the Marvell Yukon 8059 (88E8059 I think)
i am having linux suse 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1). when i start my pc there is a window comeing asking me option like linux floppy linux - safe settings. on selecting linux suse runs and get halt with a message Welcome to suse linux 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1. below that another message as(none) login : asking for login when i put my login i have again this message Welcome to suse linux 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1. below that another message as(none) login : asking for login what should i do i cannot start my Suse operating software.
I'm stuck in the "log off" mode. I don't get the shut down menu. It started when I turned the computer on today. I got a verbose boot up and had to login and enter password and run "startx". Then I got a gray screen before the splash screen.
I had been trying to get alsa to start in the "runlevel" section yesterday, could I have messed something up in there causing this?
If hypothetically I deleted my gpg keys and am not getting updates is there anything I can do to get updates? Almost all software installed is from the repositories where openSuse employees works (official repositories). I have a few packages from openbuild but not too many.
I am trying to read up on security now and see how the keys work so I don't run into this again. It happened during my paranoid attack when I realized I installed packages from the non official repositories and became nervous about having done so.
There are so many virus and malicious software threats now it is making me nervous (especially for XP) and I feel the need to do a little more reading.
I installed another net adapter in my tower, and I can see it from hardware information in YaST. But when I tried to use that card connect to internet, I got the message it not figured by DHCP.From my understanding, the new net card is not been used by my desktop under suse. Since I even can not see the device name of it and when I use ifconfig, I can not see any information of that net card too.The question is how I can active this device under suse?
My external storage failed and 1 file system related was damaged. When booting OS, it stops on fsck with the damaged file system. Thus the OS will never be up and running, no matter how long I wait. My question is, how to skip the fsck on the damaged file system? Since OS can not be booted up, I have no chance to change /etc/fstab. I just want to boot up the OS and remove the damaged file system manually.
