SUSE :: Status Server Error - Now Desktop Is Corrupt?
Jun 27, 2010
Newbie (again) trying to break the ties with Microsoft.Installed 11.2 this afternoon and have been fighting it ever since.I had an issue with the HLPIP Status Service stating "No system tray detected on this system. Unable to start, exiting". When I clicked "ok" I was presented with a blank destop and the widget icon in the corner.As I'm dual booting I was able to get back to M$ and determine this is an issue with the HP drivers and that I could add widgets to the desktop in order to use the OS. I've done that and have been able to get Yast running to update the drivers, didn't help, so I deleted the HP drivers for now.I can now boot into OpenSuse but I'm presented with my desktop full of widgets.
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 ?
Yesterday afternoon, I was playing around with updating my system with RPMs from the openSUSE RPM Search. I had bash v 4.0.18 (I'm running a decaboot, the primary OS being openSUSE 11.2, where the issue is) and I installed a package that was bash 1.0.36. I restarted my Yakuake terminal to see the new bash. Immediately, I noticed the Yakuake terminal flashing rapidly, and the terminal wouldn't go down when I used the key that brings up and down, so I controlled-alt-escaped it and killed it off. Then I wondered if it was just me, so I hit ALT-F2 and logged in as root. It quickly said some symbol file (Something)_(Something)_REWRITE(maybe) then disappeared, giving my the login prompt. I though, well, OK maybe I have to restart it to get it to work. Init said "there is no more processes left on this runlevel" and I had to Power-Button it and reboot. When it rebooted, or tried to, I was greeted with "KERNEL-PANIC Tried to kill init"
I panicked with the kernel, and I went into my 11.3 Milestone 4 installation, tried to chroot it, but I received the same error as when I tried to log into root and was returned to my 11.3 session.
I later tried to do a mock update with the 11.2 DVD, and tried with the YaST package manager to downgrade BASH, but the RPM installation failed, even on good DVDs. I tried the rescue, but it said BASH wasn't a "critical file" while things I don't even use were checked (like openssh)
From 11.3, I tried linking sh from bash to ksh (Korne Shell). For all I know, it is just like bash. It didn't work. Same kernel error.
I relinked sh and bash together, and I am using SUSE 11.1 in the meantime, but does anybody know how to fix this without reinstalling my SUSE 11.2 completely.
I must say, the RPMfusion version of the Nvdia driver package work better with FC10 than they did under FC9 for me, which is to say: they work at all. Still get corrupted output after a few hours of work, but I imagine that's just the underlying weakness of the Nvidia driver bubbling up. Either way, now I have other problems:
First off, the Intel driver for my onboard video setup has stopped working entirely. The attempt to bring up X on the Intel setup gets me to the KDE login screen and locks the machine up hard (poweroff required). A look at the xorg.0.log shows that the server seems to be stuck in a loop trying to determine the valid video properties for the session.
Here's my xorg.conf, BTW. I have it setup to perform different configurations depending on which DefaultServerLayout line gets uncommented (lines 4 - 6). If anybody has a better way of doing this, I'm all ears. While we're on my xorg.conf, pleas view lines 64-67 and/or 75-77. This is my quickie way of changing drivers (again, all ears) which brings us to the next problem, neither the nv or nouveau drivers work with my system. Interestingly enough, both drivers tend to fail in the same relative spot in the process, I think. Please refer to line 207 of this xorg.0.log with the nv driver or line 140 of this xorg.0.log from the nouveau setup. Either way, both sessions die with the same message: (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration. Fatal server error: no screens found Gotta go, x session getting corrupt,,,
I'm having an issue when I'm trying to install SuSE linux onto my desktop.I go through all the steps and everything looks okay, but when it starts to install the packages, I get an error message that basically says:kernel.desktop - unable to install, exit status 127.I have a ATI X1950 video card in the computer, as well as a AMD 64 FX CPU in the system.
I lost my entire Operating system and am now reinstalling. After installing SUSE 11.1 and updating it through the update icon in the status bar, I ended up with a complete update except for the update icon in the status bar now depicting a downward arrow. This equates to my not wanting to download a update/patch/whatever of a "Microsoft font file"!
However, there is no way to delete this option that I do not want. How do I get rid of the MS font update and bring the OS/system back to the Gecko symbol associated with taking care (updating) of updating my system without a thing from MS? To those who are bound to ask, I want nothing to do with MS, this should be sufficient.
When I try to boot from the Live CD of Ubuntu 10.10, I end up with a whitish corrupt screen, which should be the 'Desktop'. The CD is good and works on other PC's. I have tried two other graphics cards with the same result. It is therefore impossible even to install it. I have installed many other versions without problems. This PC works perfectly with Windows XPVistaWindows 7 and other Ubuntu versions.
I installed HP multifunction inkjet printer.Since then, I'm always noticing the blue HP HPLIP servicestatus icon in the system tray. It appears that I can onlyhide or quit it once it has started.Is there a way not even have it started from the system booting?
We have a server running suse 9. I had to do a reboot yesterday. the server dropped off the network, but did not reboot. It was attempting a connect, but I don't know why or to what. These are the lines that I saw on the screen:Connecting to (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=IPC)(KEY=EXTPROC1) ))
I have implimented SugarCRM on a SUSE 10 box . Every thing goes ok but in the SugarCRM ,it's saying :
Error: Could not connect to the Sugar Server. check your Proxy Settings value in the System Settings admin panel. Last attempted connection @ 10/11/2010 06:37pm and unable to setup email inside that. But the system is neither have proxy setting and internet runs fine outside SugarCRM. IN RHEL,CentOS all run ok but not in SUSE ?
I am facing issue in ntp, it is getting killed frequently. see below error; # /etc/init.d/ntpd status ntpd dead but pid file exists After starting service it is works fine but again after sometimes it get in dead postition.
I was tryin to install virtualbox on Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 and it said it needs pad-devil. I looked in the software archive that came with sled 11 but it wasnt there. I tried downloading the VirtualBox install for Suse Linux Enterprise Server but got the same error as when i tried install VirtualBox with the opensuse 11.1 rpm file. can virtualbox even be install on sled? (has anyone done it?) and if so where can i find pam-devil?
I learn from many experts online, and finally it works but still happens some sharing problems that I can handle it in different way. Here is what I have, and hopefully we can share what we have successed: -Sles Linux 11.3 installed, Samba 3.5.4 server configured and started, no DNS or LDAP installed.
-added to smb.conf: client ntlmv2 auth = yes wins support = Yes wins proxy = No lanman auth = yes
Reboot and now Win7 can join the domain, but with an error message about can't change the domain name to... but I just ignore it, and it works OK with any shared folders, the same way for WinXP. The only problem is that it won't map the logon drive P: but I can apply the "logon.bat" instead. However, I don't understand all of what I have done to make it work as I just copied from other experts.
I have a system running om vmware esxi with suse 9.3 i did an inplace upgrade to 10.2. i got the follwoing error during upgrade error occurred while installing grub (version 0.97) error 21 disk cannot be found. I ignore this error and the upgrade went fine. after a reboot the server works pretty fine. Except one thing GRUB.. i cannot install it on this system. i want to install grub on this system.
Having downloaded 11.4 Gnome, finding it did not install I bought it on DVD from ebay, when trying DVD installation my PC is displaying: There is a problem with the configuration server (/usr/lib/Gconf-sanity- check - 2 exited with status 256, I would like to install this rather then just run it off disk
What would be the preferred method to establish a remote desktop session from one 11.2 machine to another 11.2 machine in the same location? No firewalls, local connection only. I've looked at VNC, RDP with xrdp, have not been able to establish a session to desktop. I would rather not use desktop sharing if possible, don't want invitations involved. Want something similar to hitting from Windows with VNC3and taking over the established desktop session. This is in my house, no security risks involved
We are in the process of testing SLES 10 SP1 installation, onto a new system.
Initially the installation got failed at the start giving following error :
"Could not find the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Installation CD. Activating Manual setup program."
What is interesting to notice is , if we use SLES 10 SP2 to boot the system upto the Installation menu and then replace the CD with SLES 10 SP1 media, the installation proceeds as normal without any error.
Not sure that could be the problematic thing over here. Does it mean with SP1 , no cdrom/cd or hard disk gets detected ?
After untarring the file and executing the binary for firefox, the following error is coming "brilliant:/firefox # ./firefox ./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". The libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 is there in /usr/lib.. I guess this is because the SuSE is 64 bit and the software Im trying to install is 32 bit.
I dont know how to put this that somobody would understand my problem but here we go. I have problem like said in title.I am unable to upgrade my kernel. Sunaptics says that I have 2.6.35-28 installed. I tried to reinstall 2.6.35-28 via synaptics but it gives me error.

Is there a way in SuSE 11.1 to have the conventional desktop, instead the plasma desktop? I thought that installing KDE 3.5 will fix it, but I was wrong. I really don't want to download back SuSE 11.0, just to have my old desktop layout. SuSE developers should at least leave it as an option than to force people to install it
Code: sudo -s my password then ; gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Up until KDE4 I could select a different image for each of the 4 virtual desktops. Now I tried Suse11.1 KDE and it seems like there is no such option. I can change the background image allright, but all 4 desktops have the SAME image.
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?
On another machine, I upgraded a 8.04 desktop to 10.04 using the update manager. The update went well, but after the reboot and login, the default desktop background is loaded, but there is no status bar to select programs, access system settings, etc. How can I fix the desktop to include the status bar so that I can use the system? I can right click on the desktop and it gives me options to create launchers, etc.
