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'm trying to install a GeForce 8600 XT card into novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11 so that I can get the 3D Cube to work. It currently does not work with the default nvidia card onthe motherboard.I can not find the correct driver for the GeForce 8600XT card. Can someone identify the driver I should be using please? Then if someone could also direct me to the "How to install a Video Driver" tutorial,
UPDATE:I've downloaded the correct drivers but it still says that my hardware does not support Desktop enhancements etc ... I think the GeForce 8600 XT just doesn't support 3D accelleration ... period.Can someone suggest a reasonably priced video card that is easy to install and which supports 3D Accelleration please?
I have a program that needs 32-bit libtcl8.4.so and libtk8.4.so.
I have the Red Hat supplemental DVD that has the tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm and the tk-devel-8.4.13-5.el5_1.1.i386.rpm
I tried to install the tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm package using the following command: "rpm -ivh --force tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm
I get the following error message: "Warning: tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 37017186 error: failed dependencies: libtcl8.4.so is needed by tcl-devel-8.4.13-3.fc6.i386.rpm"
I have scoured the internet and everything says to install these packages to get the tcl and tk libraries.
So I updated my software using Yast. One of the updates failed to install. I rebooted and then was in black screen hell with the following information:

This has been a problem and desipite my best efforts I am at a loss to explain what is happening.
I am running a Suse 11 box and I will be storing some automated backups on an XP box. The Suse box is hosting a samba domain to which the xp box is a member.
For the moment the share permissions are wide open while I troubleshoot (everyone full access on the xp share) I can mount the share no problem on the Suse box and even read the contents. If I attempt to write to the share though I get permission denied (logged in as root at the moment)
I created the mount point using mkdir -p /media/backup Then I mounted the share using mount -t cifs //172.16.16.245/backup /media/backup -o username=root, -o password=XXXXXXX
share on the XP box is also called backup (just in case there was any confusion regarding the mount command I used)
if I run an ls -l on the mount point afterwords I can see my files already in the share no problem. I would be very greatful if anyone can point out what I have done wrong so I can get this fixed once and for all. Thank you in advance.
I should probably also mention that both systems are on the same lan and at the moment firewalls are down until this is fixed.
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
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 have installed the Suse Enterprise server 11 SP1 on my laptop. I have the atheros AR8132 network card, and it seams the suse is detecting correctly, but i can't start the network up. He returns an erros saying that the eth0 is not supported by suse, or kernel, i must check to be sure.
I am using SUSE enterprise server 11 SP1. I have jboss server application 4.0.5 GA in the above O.S where I have some problem in running the jboss. How and where to download the latest jboss server for the O.S
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 ?
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".
I'm starting an online Internet radio station and my server Linux Distro is Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4) and I want to install icecast so I can stream music and video onto my website. I already check the package manger to see if it was there and it was not so how do I install icecast?
I tried to install the easy way, the catalist driver. I used this page: SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE When I clicked the link, yast asked for the root password. After ar reboot, no more desktop. Then I did init 3 adn startx ( it seems although I have no desktop, I am in runlevel 5)

After something happened in SUSE Studio, in any appliances I build the owner of /home/tux/Desktop is root which makes impossible to create desktop icons. This happens even in those appliances which previously were build normally with normal ownership (i.e. tux as owner of /home/tux/Desktop). Something changed abruptly and in all these appliances the ownership of this folder changed.

I'm trying to install phpmyadmin and I mistakenly marked SSL configuration which I don't use. I then uninstalled the app but every time I install it uses the same configuration. How can I force the install to start from scratch and give me the initial install choices?
I am a newbie with Linux and I am eager to learn it . I installed RHEL6 beta on My Dell D620 and everything seems to be fine except the Video Driver. I installed the Desktop and the Video card of my laptop is NVIDIA QUADRO NVS110M with the max resolution 1440x900. The max resolution I have now is 1024x768.I want to install the NVDIA driver,I already downloaded the RPMS from http://www.atrpms.net/ website but I am afraid it won't work because of dependencies..if I try to use the hard way by using rpm -Uhv. Is there any other way for example using YUM or other ways.If I use YUM what command I have to type.
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
