SUSE :: Update Opensuse 11 Without Any Internet Connection?
Jul 19, 2010
if I can update the OS (new security updates,patches etc also) on a system that ain't having any internet connection. Simply i would like to know if there is any packs like rpm/ tar files available, so that we can install the updates easily..I am using opensuse..
i m using Reliance Netconnect broadband+ my modem model is HUAWEI EC1260 and my operating system is Open SUSE 11.0 i m not able to access the internet by using the connection can anybody help me to do so.i ve tried wvdial to connect but its said modem was not found.
I plan to install F12 (Fedora-12-i386DVD.iso) in a location where there's no Internet connection, thus I'd like to previously download the updates in order to install them once completed the installation. How can i perform this ? can I download the updates that were released after F12 launch date from somewhere ? how should I tell yum or rpm to find them ?
I've been running 10.04 since it came out basically and my internet connection has been fine. After I got the last set of updates that came up on the update manager (which if I remember mainly contained an updated version of the latest kernel and a couple other files) my internet connection speed went from a decent browsing speed and file transfer speeds between 80-200kbps to an almost dialup browsing speed to file transfer speeds of a about 7.5kbps its very significant and very annoying it took 20 minutes just to make this post.
Also I've already tried changing my ipv6 settings.
I am an ubuntu user, and i have a problem ,since a couple of days i cannot conect to the internet in my home, i am a student an i live on campus, every time that i try to conect my computer from my linux partition the internet browser (every web browser, i have tried, explorer, chrome, chrominium,firefox and epiphany)show an error, it say that i need an upgrade for my web browser and ask me to download a file named as update.exe.But in my windows partition everithing goes perfect, even if i use the wireless conection from my college ubuntu doesnot show this problem.
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
I tried to download some software from the Ubuntu software center, and it does not download. It does not give me an error message, it just stays at 0 bytes. It eventually tells me to check my internet connection. (this does not make sense because I am using it to write this thread) I checked synaptic package manager for correct proxy settings and it was ok. I ran
Code: sudo apt-get update
but to no avail. I am using wireless, and recently dissembled the computer to disconnect the CMOS battery, but I think that it was put back together properly.
Is it possible to update Mandriva, not using a live internet connection. I'm wondering if i can update Mandriva offline or it is possible to save the my current PC updates and install it when i plan to reinstall my distro?
Not sure this right place for this. After updating from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 lost internet connection - was instantaneous loss. Wired connection computer to router. Icon on computer shows "wired connection 'auto Eth0'active" The router shows line connected ok. Computer shows connection is established. Connection information menu shows details such as IP address broadcast address and other details. Where do I go from here to reconnect to internet.
I've been connecting to the Internet via Ubuntu 8.10 on my Toshiba laptop fine for ages now, but today it has stopped working. Yesterday an update came through relating to DHCP and, like all other updates, I installed it. And now my laptop can see the wireless router but it cannot connect to the Internet. (As I always install the recommended Ubuntu updates I didn't look closely at exactly what the update said, but I did see DHCP in the title, so this is why I suspect my connection is now broken.) Or can anyone tell me how to undo yesterday's update? I really wish now that Ubuntu had a utility similar to Windows System Restore.
i'm realatively new to linux am just getting my head around the command line, any way my problem today is, my network connection and networkmanger program have been deleted/uninstalled after i did a system update. im running ubuntu 10.04 32 bit. I have run of some commands which should be able to tell you whats going on. at the moment i'm using a live ubuntu cd to gain net access.
so the question is How do i restore my network connection and get my networkmanager program back without a internet connection. (i can download stuff to a memory stick and do manual install) Hope someone can shed some light on this, i know this topic has been covered before although each case seems slightly different to mine.
I got an update notification from update manager just now and tried to update (internet working perfectly) but before it finishes downloading it gives an error of "check internet connection" constantly
I'm dummy in linux world and maybe someone can help? Installed Opensuse 11.4 64bit on Hyper-V virtual machine all is working fine except sometimes lan connection is lost.
Code: /etc/init.d/network restart is not helping and I need manual reboot.Why that? What's problem? In routes table I can see default gw. Code: Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 22.214.171.124 * 255.255.255.192 U 0 0 0 eth0 link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo default 126.96.36.199 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
I have suse 11.0 installed and now that 11.1 is out i would like to update. I have searched for this already and have found three ways of doing it:
zypper dup zypper up
in YAST view all packages and right click and click update all if update available. I have tried all these methods but i still seem to be running Suse 11.0 as it says in sysinfo:/ . How do i successfully update from 11.0 to 11.1?
I tried to download the Suse 11.2 DVD to do an install. When I went to do the install it failed cause it was corrupt.Not to big of deal, I had an older version of 10.2.Now that I have 10.2 installed, is there a way for me to upgrade this to 11.2 without downloading the Install DVD.I've been away from messing with Linux for a few months so I'm pretty darn rusty. I'll run Linux for awhile and when I get frustrated I'll move back to Windows. I'll mess with that for a few months and then go back to Linux...
i have configured the network as far as i can but when i click into samba shares and my home network comes up i click into the home network and the the available computers and printers are shown but when i click to open a site it just shows 0 files i have tried to share all files within my encrypted network but im still not doing something right. the same sites show up and all files are shared on my Windows computers and printerswhat am i missing or doing wrong? im using open suse 11.3 and KDE and Samba Shares.
someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.
Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?
In openSuse I can connect to a wireless network. It says that it is connected, and I can open the router page (http://192.168.1.1/basic.html). But I cannot load any other pages. Nothing else recognizes internet either; I tried using konqueror, YAST and wget with the command line, and none of them could load anything. It is not a router problem or a wireless card problem because both Ubuntu and Kubuntu can connect, from the same computer. I know this is odd because in the only other thread I could find with this issue, it was a different distro and installing openSuse seemed to fix it.
I'm wondering why everytime I install "recomended" updates, my KDE or X server crashes completely! is there any guide or advice you can give me to succesfully update only the packages that are really needed?
I have installed Suse 11.3 on my computer yesterday but since then I have been trying to update it but unable to do so. Everytime I try I get this error message: "system management is locked by the application with pid 6953 (usr/sbin/packagekitd). close this appliaction before trying again."
I had fuzzy icons in system tray so before couple of days i installed some updates and after that i have floating point exception in ktorrent and virtualbox 188.8.131.52-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-12-13 11:13:53 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Last winter we had the intention of using VMWare branded Novell Suse Enterprise as we were going to be getting the licenses/subscription through the purchase of Vsphere. Since that time we have set up 4 VMs, and have been testing an application that will soon be going into production status. However a new issue has arisen. As we are over budget we will not get the Vsphere license (which included Suse subscription). We also found that the added features of a Vsphere license do not really add anything over the free ESX hypervisor.
On the one hand these servers have all been configured precisely, on the other hand we have no update service from which I understand we would need a Novell subscription. Most of the repositories we have added are external to Novell, meaning they are community ones. So my questions are this:
1.) Can we use Opensuse community repositories for the Online Update?
2.) If not is there a way to easily 'convert' Enterprise Suse to Opensuse?
Obviously what we first want to avoid is having to do a brand new install of Opensuse and spend the time moving data from the old to the new. One of the issues that has caused the delay and over runs is that the application we will be deploying has not lived up to its promises, and has caused considerable amount of time configuring, tweaking, and de-bugging.
I used OpenSuse 11.2 and tried to update it to 11.4 from iso, choosing "update" in the installation dialogue. It went ok, but at first boot something failed and I got the following:
" doing fast boot FATAL: Module amd74xx not found FATAL: ide_pci_generic not found
Like this. Then if I choose Y, it starts up to the login screen, but the image is blurry and unreadable. It even logs in, but the desktop is still unreadable. When I choose to boot "failsafe" mode, it boots normally, all graphics look ok. What could I do to boot normal system? I have never experienced any problems like this with Suse 11.2. If I go to the console and type mount /dev/sda1 from failsafe boot, it returns "according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /" I have AMD Athlon Dual Core 4850e and nVidia GeForce 6150SE, Suse is the only OS installed.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
