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?
I'm remotely connecting to SUSE 10 system using OpenSSH_4.2p1 from PUTTY. My problem is that my session to the server was getting disconnected after some time. when i'm giving "exit" command, it is giving the message "server unexpectedly closednetworkconnection".Also it is showing my last login wrongly. what went wrong from sshd side i dont know
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.
Complete n00b here. I am running openSUSE 11.3 and trying to load drivers for a network card. When I try to make install, I am getting this error:
Code: Makefile:69: *** Linux kernel source not found in any of these locations: Makefile:70: Makefile:71: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g. Makefile:72: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again. How do I install the kernel-devel?
I have just carried out a complete installation on my HP 2133 mini notebook. It was preloaded with suse 10.1 and the first time I connected it to my BT HomeHub2 was with the network icon on my home screen. Since switching to suse 11.2 when I click the same icon all I get is a setup screen with what seems like millions of setup fields that I do not understand? I have never worked with linux before so do not want to guess the settings. I have looked at google search for the answer but every page seems to be for computer programmers or I am just being dull. I can connect the ethernet cable and it works fine, but I cannot even find a network.
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.
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.
I have one desktop (AMD Athlon 1.14 GHz, nVIDIA nFORCE2 chipset, 1GB RAM, nVIDIA Gigabytes graphic acelerator/duel monitor card, M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI sound card) and an Acer Extensa 4620 laptop (Intel Core2 DUO, Intel 965 chipset). I started with Debian Lenny 5.0.3 i386 for both the systems. Since I found it a little hard for a beginner like me to make things work on Debian and also since I did not get 64bit version, I switched over to OpenSUSE 11.2. At present I am duel booting my desktop with OpenSUSE 11.2 i586 and MS Windows XP Pro/SP2 and my laptop runs only OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64.
I want to know which is the best NTP server to use. Also I would like to know how I can configure my KDE desktop to look and behave like Mac OS or MS windows XP. Are help files available for KDE?
I had trouble connecting to a wireless network with openSUSE, so I tried the YAST network manager to see if that fixed it. Not only did it not fix it, but now I cannot connect to any network, wired or wireless. I tried to open the default network manager and it said "Network management disabled". How do I re-enable it?I also have set YAST settings back to their originals with no luck.
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 did a clean install of OpenSuse 11.3 a couple of weekends back. Everything is working great except the SSH server.Once I installed ssh, it appears to accept my connection, allows me to log in, and then freezes Putty, not allowing me to type anything into the terminal.If I wait several minutes, I'll get a message saying that the connection was closed. After that, the server won't accept connections.Sometimes it'll start accepting connections again, but after a while, the connection will close on its own. Other times, I will be unable to get a connection until I restart the server.If you guys needs any more information, please let me know. What could be causing this odd behavior?
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've an HDD with a dual boot of XP and Mint Linux. It works well. I'd now like to add OpenSUSE 11.2 but if I accept auto partition it seems to want to overwrite the Mint partitions which I assume are sda5 and sda8. So how should I proceed with manual install as I have the following large number of existing partitions:
Should I resize sda3? can I use sda8 as /Home for both Mint and OpenSUSE?
OpenSuse 11.2 This link shows that gdb-7.2-61.1.x86_64.rpm is the latest version of GDB, but when I do: zypper install gdb, the version 6.8.x gets installed! The following result is after forceful refreshment:
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 have downloaded tarballs of gpg2 (gnupg-2.0.16), compiled it, compiled dependencies etc. and have it installed on my Suse 10 box. Now I want to install it on another suse 10 box. Instead of doing the compiling/installing steps once again, is there a good way I can package gpg2, or tar it on my server, so it can be easily installed on the other server? Also, when I installed gpg, it was installed everywhere, /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/bin, my download dir etc. How do I pick the needed libraries and executable to make the package? maybe I Should specify a path for the gpg to be installed, then tar the whole directory. how to do the first part?
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 ?
Installed Suse 11.2 from download CD. During the "answering questions" at the beginning of the process, selected Gnome as the desktop enviornment instead of the default KDE. The install process ended with no reported errors. After the final reboot at the process's end, the Gnome logon screen was displayed. After the user name/password were entered, a medium green screen was displayed, but the Gnome desktop was never displayed. The "animal" logo was not on the screen just the green screen and some "filagree" lines, probably part of the logo.
Waited a few minutes, mouse-clocked, pressed various keys and then tried ctrl-alt-del, but no response. Did a power off/on reboot, but the results were the same.
I then did a re-install. Took the KDE default for desktop. At install's end, the KDE desktop appeared and everything works just fine. During this second install, all choices were the same as for the first/Gnome install. Worked from written notes, and not from memory, so am sure that the change to KDE was the only difference.
Couldn't find any information on this anomally via forum and Google searches, hence this post.
This is my first time to use Suse, so could well have "missed something".
How to recover from a failed OpenSUSE install. The situation is that I have a striped RAID set up on two 500Gb drives running Windows. I wanted a dual boot setup, and I tried to install OpenSUSE but it failed with a Grub error 18. This, I understand, is caused by my BIOS not being able to access the part of the drive with the /boot on. Because I have two 500 Gb disks, the OpenSUSE /boot partition is beyond the BIOS's addressing range.
The recommended solution seems to be to put the /boot at the start of the HDD - but then I'd need to move Windows after it somewhere. But I don't know how to do that and it seems a risky, longwinded business. I've given up on the OpenSUSE install. My problem is that the failed install has grabbed about half of the diskspace for its purposes. Question therefore is: how can I reclaim that space for Windows?
I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto the IDE drive. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive and boot from it). If I parse the dmesg output I see the message "ata_piix 0000:1f.1 device not available because of BAR 2 (0x0-0x7) collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.
I've tried Ubuntu with similar results. Older kernels WILL install onto this same MB/PATA controller (Ubuntu 6.06, 2.6.15 and RHEL4) so it seems that something changed in the ATA driver as the kernel has matured and my bios isn't up to snuff for these pickier drivers.
I'm trying to install kweather in 11.2. I have downloaded and installed. I can find it in usr/bin and usr/lib but I can't add an application as in 11 or 11.1. It doesn't show up in the list of apps. It's there but I can't get it on the desktop.
