SUSE / Novell :: Opensuse 11.2 KDE - Lock Errors At The Command Line
Dec 17, 2010
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 use vncviewer command line to remote access my pc from my notebook. Is there any option to resize the view like windows client can by percentage? my notebook screen size is 1280x800, while I use bigger resolution for my pc 1280x1024 if not mistaken. already look here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/vncviewer but I don't see any option to do that.
I am using openSUSE 10.3 and the pc is DELL Optiplex 780. The network devices is not supported by openSUSE 10.3 but I may have found it's module. But I can't "MAKE INSTALL" it as my installation does not have MAKE command.
I have selected "Install All" during my installation. Linux version is 18.104.22.168-31-default.
What is the package name for the MAKE command? So that I can find it so that I can install it into my openSUSE 10.3?
well, gonna straight-explain what I`ve here: had a Win7 64bit installed machine and created a D drive as I was intended to install Suse there (so it`s `Extended`) after succesfully installed SLED and finally restarted the laptop to see use Win7 again there was no Loader for me to choose which Operation System (I have another machine with XP,Ubuntu and Pardus - never had sucha problem)then I had to chose SLED of course but this time it didn`t bring me to the login page but to the Command Line of SLED, and the thing is that I can`t use command line on linux. tried several times and with failsafe login but stıll having command line and there is no Win7 to run on Loader.
I have installed opensuse on VirutalBox , during installation I said "yes" to autologin as normal user.After installation and restart , it shows follwing message "Logging in Laks ...Cannot enter home directory . using /"I can login as single user by passing "single " in grub.
I have a command which is application related and I get a output some thing like this when I execute the command...Quote:applicationrunningSo I need to write script to see if application is running, if application state running run some command else run echo command to state application is not running.So I need to run the first command, then based on output (Application status), run the second command else echo command.
I have a script: Quote: # Call mail script to send an email if [ -f /tmp/report.txt ]; then /usr/local/scripts/mail.pl sleep 10 rm /tmp/report.txt else exit fi
What I need to do is, I want to check if file exists, if file exists call other script (mail.pl) and then delete the file (assuming mail.pl script executed). If file not exists just exit out of the script. I'm not sure how I can see that other script execution completed or not before I delete the file even though I put sleep command. And also it seems like its not that good, even though it is working. I wanted to see if we can write in more efficient way.
I am using SLES10 and i checked with command crontab -l and when i compared it with the cron.d/daily/monthly/hourly , all they are different. is there any single command that list out all the cronjobs that exist under the system.
is there a way to deactivate Caps Lock via command line? I mean: no matter whether Caps Lock is either active or not, issuing such a command would deactivate it. I'm not talking about disabling the key.
I use Linux with a lot of pleasure almost 6 years... after installing Ubuntu 10.04 Itried to install openSuSE on with Ubuntu prepared partitions, 20GB for / and 120 for /home. I have tried 4 times to install SuSE, but I have each time same problem. Suse installer shows instead 20 and 120GB partitions 16 and 104 GB and insallation was failed with message that PC probably was attacked. Before was installed excellent worked OpenSuSE 10.3. I have no idea. It's PC with AMD 3200 64-bit, 1GB DDR, Nvidia7300SE.
For the past several years I have grown fond of ver. 11.0...I have installed many programs with that verison. I have checked out the Live ver. of 11.3, and I like it allot but I'm wondering if I can some how check the software available for 11.3 to see if the same program/s are available with ver. 11.3. In other words can I run the Live CD, click on the Yast package installer and look for the same programs I have with ver. 11.0 ?
I have a box already has openSuse 11 32bits installed. I want to replace it with openSuse 11 64 bits. When I insert the openSuse 11 64 bits CD, I got error message "this is a 32 bit computer. Can not use 64 bit software". so How do I wipe out the old OS (32 bits), and install new OS (64 bits)?
So I have tried to install from LiveCD and from a LiveUSB stick. Installation goes fine till I get to CUPS daemon. Then I get the wait 30 seconds for CUPS to activate, that never works. Then it pops up with a wait one minute for CUPS to become available. Then it finishes the installation and restarts the system and I get previous installation has failed would you like to retry? It does this over and over again till I get an error with my user name and the mouse and keyboard quit working. I have tried in Failsafe mode, No ACPI, etc. and nothing seems to work. I don't know if it matters but I have an Asus mobo M4A785-M and an AMD Athlon II x3 440 chip. I am just ready to switch to Ubuntu
I have just installed opensuse 11.3 on my box and it refuses to shut down. It shows a tty screen with the message "power down" but wont power off. After searching the web I found no solution until I compared the "halt" scripts of versions 11.3 and 11.2 (they are located in /etc/init.d). Both scripts differ only by a couple of lines that make reference to raid devices. As I am not using any RAID array in my BIOS, I copied my halt script (version 11.2) on top of the version 11.3 halt script and my box started to shut down and power off nicely! At least for me it worked!
I've had this issue since OpenSUSE 10.5 and Firefox 2.x. Now I'm on OpenSUSE 11.2 and Firefox 3.5.6. Here's the issue: I log into various sites to get my bank statements, utility bills, etc. They are all in PDF, and they open up acrobat reader and from there I save the bill as a permanent record. The first one I open opens fine. Subsequent sessions with subsequent providers (banks, whatever) opens up a new window as if to show me the PDF, but no PDF is there. Status on the window shows "done." No error messages. I have to shut firefox down, restart, log in again, and then it downloads fine. It's getting annoying.
I'm new to XEN, but I have a great book ("The Book of XEN") which is helping me get started. I have learned to use "virt-manager" to create a new VM, I have my dom0 running, and I want to add a domU, and I want it to be Kubuntu 9.10. But every attempt to use a Kubuntu install CD results in "not bootable" errors for the install disk. I have booted from the CD, so I know it's not corrupt. I also tried using "xm" manually to create the vm with the following configuration with the same result as in virt-manager:
Am I stuck, or is there a way to do this? I do not have hardware virtualization?. That's not an option. I did a lot of searching on the web without much luck before posting this. I know this is not a new problem. I've found references to it.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with the following specifications:Proccesor: Intel Core i3 350M / 2.26 GHzRAM: 4GB DDR3Hard Disk: 320GB SATA 5400rpmArchitecture: x86_64The computer has already Windows 7 installed on the C drive whereas there's a D hidden drive with a copy of the recovery image.I'm having trouble to install openSuSE 11.3 as follows:I boot the system with the DVD in its drive. After the welcome screen the process stops using the typical GUI interface and runs a less graphical one. It is at this point where a window pops up with a request:"Make sure that CD number 1 is in your drive"I press OK but the window keeps popping up. Frustrated I hit Back and a red window comes up with the message:"No repository found."I cannot go any further than this point
I'm installing OpenSuse 11.2 on some systems. Unfortunately the only mouse available is a serial mouse. Hence the installer doesn't recognize the mouse.And it is somewhat cumbersome using the TAB and ARROW keys to navigate the graphical installation.Does anyone know of a boot option I could use to get OpenSuse's installer to recognize a serial mouse ?
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.

install the firefox 3.6 on opensuse Desktop edition. As my new application software is only supporting 3.6 or greater version of mozilla firefox. i was forced to upgrade or to reinstall my current firefox (version 22.214.171.124). kindly help me and please tell me what is the procedure to install forefox 3.6 or higher version in opensuse 10. i cannot upgrade opensuse 10 to opensuse 11 or 11.3 as my company wont allow me to make modifications in the operating system. i have the latest version of firefox downloaded. the format is tar.gz2 while i am trying to extract it. i find errors in extracting even after extracting successfully i find permission errors.
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?
