SUSE / Novell :: Monitor Turns Off After Few Minutes And Reboot - SUSE 11.3 KDE 4.5?
Nov 4, 2010
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 been trying to install OpenSuse 11.0 on my ten-year-old Gateway desktop. It has been showing this screen for approximately thirty minutes. In case you can't read it, it says 'Decompressing Linux... done. Booting the Kernel.' I booted from the CD, and the OpenSuse screen came up, and I selected 'Installation' from the menu. And here we are.
Once I halt my desktop machine and then boot it back up, applications previously open will open automatically. Is this some sort of KDE4 feature? Or what process is responsible for this? And is there some sort of file constantly updated about open programs and once I reboot, this file is read by KDE during the boot-up and those previously open programs will be started automatically?
Several months ago my PowerEdge 2850 SLES 9 server response time gradually slows after reboot. Daily the server seems to get slower and gets to the point where I have to reboot to clear the problem. To address this I added addtional 2G of memory, but issue is now worse. I have to reboot daily.
Im just trying to write some script to caputre memory and cpu usage on SLES servers, I just wanna use "top |grep Mem" and "top |grep Cpu". when I ran the above command, it just keep going. i just want to get one line each for memory and cpu.
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'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.
FC13. In Screensaver, I've made sure no screensaver is selected. In Power Management, PowerDevil is unchecked, profile is set to "performance" and that profile is set to never dim the screen. In fact, just to be sure, I edited all the other unselected profiles to not dim the screen. I've done this as a user, and I've done this as root. My monitor still gets turned off at the 10 minutes mark (I used a stopwatch).
Site search only turned up this thread, but I'm using kde not gnome, and I can't locate a screensaver daemon to kill.
I've read many posts about other people having this issue and I can't seem to find one that is the same problem I am having. I'm totally new to ubuntu and linux as well for that matter, Basically I wanted to give linux a try and started doing some research and liked everything I read about ubuntu. I went to the website and used the wubi (I think that was what it was called) to install ubuntu. Now when I boot my computer it asks me which operating system I would like to use. I navigate to ubuntu and press enter and it starts up with no problems what so ever.
At first I was really surprised with how easy the installation was and how great everything was going, however. After looking around for about 10 minutes, the screen abruptly went black and then my monitor had a small blue box on it with "No input" on it before the light went from blue to orange. I tried hitting every combination of keys I could think of and in the end had to do a hard restart.
Long story short. every time I use ubuntu my monitor shuts off after about 10-20 minutes, regardless of what activity I am doing. I've tried going to /apps/gnome-power-manager/timeout/ to make sure that sleep_display_ac was set to 0 (it was), I've turned off power management using the power manger under preferences. No matter what I have tried, it continues to be a problem.
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.
