OpenSUSE :: Can't Install LXDE/YaST2 Isn't Responding

Jul 3, 2011

Whenever I tried to install LXDE using the 1-click install, YaST2 just freezes and doesn't respond and doesn't install anything. In fact, YaST2 always freezes whenever trying to install a program with the 1-click install.

So my question is, How do you abort YaST2 from installing because obviously the Abort button doesn't even work! And lastly, how can I install LXDE through the terminal as I always never have a problem installing something through the terminal.

OpenSUSE :: YaST2 Failing To Install RPMs?

Oct 6, 2010

I've been trying for awhile to install the restricted formats, but when in the download & and install process, YaST2 pops up saying that such and such RPM has failed. I hit ignore, and it happens again and again to all the other packages, bar the odd few that work.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast2 Does Not Work After Some Time Using VNC

Dec 5, 2009

I have problems with running Yast2 under Gnome when I connect via VNC to the computer. The first 20-30 times it worked, but then it simply stopped to work. When switching to another VNC-Server (instead of :1 to :2) it works again for approx. 20-30 times. The behaviour is very much similar to the one described here:

Yast2 startet nicht unter VNC (SUSE 11.1/Gnome)

I use OpenSUSE 11.2 with german language set. The VNC server I use the one that is installed "by default".

When I try to run Yast2 from a terminal under Gnome as normal user I get the following output:

./yast2: Zeile 30: ./lib/YaST2/bin/yast2-funcs: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
./yast2: Zeile 267: set_lang_from_sysconfig: Kommando nicht gefunden.
./yast2: Zeile 192: check_qt: Kommando nicht gefunden.
Qt GUI wanted but not found, failing back to ncurses.

[Code]....

OpenSUSE Install :: Bind /Dns Not Showing Up In Yast2

Sep 14, 2010

11.3 ; looking to play with DNS; nothing of the kind is showing in Yast networking menus. Checked, and BIND shows as installed. Also, while I'm crying for help: cant see the windows box next to me; can ping it, and could browse to it with File Manager yesterday, but not working today ! Also; I tried KDE desktop (like new things) but it's driving me nuts (menus too small, I lose the choices as I move through submenus) and I'd like to go to Gnome ; how to ?

OpenSUSE :: YaST2 Wanting To Install 250MB Of Extra ****?

Oct 2, 2010

Whenever I try to install anything from YaST2, it decides to include a lot of extra stuff I don't need. It says it's just added dependencies, but I hardly think the Russian translation for the open office help files counts as a dependency for WINE. This also happens when I try to install the amarok mp3 codec.

OpenSUSE :: Yast2 Install PostgreSQL Server (Apache2)

Oct 23, 2010

This is my second day trying to learn opensuse. My lack of terminology makes it very hard to google for the answers. I need to do this:
opensuse:~ # yast2 install postgresql-server apache2 perl texlive perl-DBD-Pg libapr-util1-dbd-pgsql
I know about yast, however this looks like something that needs to ran from terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: YaST2 Says 15GB Of Disk Is Too Small?

Jan 12, 2010

I'll get to the point straight away... I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 on a HD that already has Win 7 on it.I left out 15.52 GB of space just to install Opensuse but when I select that partition (which of course is empty) and tell YaST2 to install OpenSuse there it tells me there isn't enough space. Is 15 GB not enough!?inimum requirements where supposed to be 3GB I think...S this is how the disk is devided... Primary partition of 50GB for win 7, 400 of Logic partition for Programs, and supposedly 15GB for OpenSuse...

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Messages For All Options In Yast2

Mar 13, 2011

Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are :
From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm
yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm
After installed suse linux.
error messages for all options in yast2.

The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.

So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Yast2 Error In Repository Initialization

Apr 19, 2011

I just installed 11.4 and was adding a new repository which I entered incorrectly. Yast2 complained and did not add it to the repository list. Now when I run Yast2 Software Management.

I get the following error message...
"There was an error in the repository initialization.
Error refreshing service Packman 11.4 (vaval.com - Islam Resources and Information. This website is for sale!
Parse error: repoindex.xml[3] Opening and ending tag mismatch: meta line 2 and noscript"

Since this line does not show up in my repository list I cannot remove it. How do I edit the data file directly and where is it located?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Resolve Host For Yast2 In Console?

Sep 3, 2011

It's been a while since I've use linux (specifically suse). But my wife and I are expecting our first child and our office/second bedroom is now being converted into the baby room. I built the computer that is currently in there and it is a really nice one that I do not want to get rid of. Two 500GB Sata2 drives and 8Gigs of RAM (not to mention my quad-core Phenom AMD processor and sweet asus motherboard) -- I just can't get rid of it. So what I planned to do was turn it into a small home server. I did some research and kept coming back to using opensuse as the server. I read this article The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials and it seemed to have just about everything I'd like to do (maybe some extras that I don't really need, but might in the future). Everything was going fine until I got to a certain point. The install went fine, and I was starting to customize some of the settings for my own home setup. Now, the problem...

I've gotten to page 3 of the tutorial The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] - Page 3 | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

and I am installing packages through yast2, and all the packages installed fine except for 'compat-readline4'. I think this is a form of command line editor or something to do with that. I am sure I am going to need it to finish the server set up, but I can't get it installed anywhere. I've tried to install it by pointing directly to the mirror found at rpm.pbone.net and still I get nowhere.

Yast2 auto refresh seems to fail everytime I run it. Even though I installed all the other packages, I get an error message that says it can't get the medium. When I look at the details of the error it says it can't resolve the host for downloads.opensuse.org.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast2-firstboot Scripts Not Executing At First Boot?

Dec 31, 2009

I was running openSUSE 10.3 using yast2-firstboot and everything worked perfectly. I have since upgraded to 11.2 and after a post on this forum I was able to get yast2-firstboot to run. The control file was moved to touch /var/lib/YaST2/reconfig_system instead of touch /etc/reconfig_system. All is well there and firstboot does run. I have a script that basically sets up the hostname, IP addresses, etc on the machines. This worked in 10.3 but in 11.2 it doesn't execute. I can manually run the script which I have defined in the /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file. The SCRIPT_DIR="/usr/share/firstboot/scripts" I noticed a new entry this file labeled - # Action that should be done after the firstboot sequence finishes.

FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_ACTION="" Should I place my script here? I read the doc and you can use reboot but need my script to run first. To I just put the name of the script or the entire path to the script if that is the place to put it. On a side note. Does anyone know where the default FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_FILE="" is located? I want to use that as a template but change and add a few lines to this. I just can't locate it anywhere on the system.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 - Yast2 Software Management Not Working After Update

Jan 9, 2010

I did a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.1 i586. Everything worked fine. Then I used YaST2 Software Management to add a package. Worked fine. Then I did the Online Update to get the Installation up to date. Worked fine so far. I had to restart the Machine because of the Kernel Bugfix Update. Since then, the YaST2 Software Management is not working any more.

When I do start it, it starts the software manager, shows the "Search Phrase" and so on but when I enter a word and press "RETURN" the software manager immediately closes and takes me back to the YaST2 start screen. No messages, no warnings, nothing. With zypper I am able to install software but no longer within YaST2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast2 - Bash Apache Command Not Found

May 3, 2011

I ssh to a remote server which is running in SUSE. And I want to install apache2.0 there. Then I used yast2 to install it. But after installing it, I go to the terminal and type" apache -version" to check if apache is installed there. And it said "-bash: apache: command not found". I don't if I haven't successfully installed it, or I have installed it but just haven't put it into PATH yet. So, my problem is that can anyone tell how to check if I have installed it? If I have installed it, then what is the path of the directory it locates? And if I haven't probably installed it, then can you tell me the how I can installed it? And I am asked to install apache mod_wsgi as well.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login (Could Not Start Kdeinit4) Yast2 Error

Sep 8, 2011

I am using opensuse 11.3. I am encountering a problem while trying to log in. The problem message was
"could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation"
I tried to solve this problem by following the instructions given in OpenSuSE 11.0 Could not start kdeinit4... i.e., I opened yast2 and then I had to select "software management" from there in order to update all the packages in kde4. But I got another error when I clicked it.

/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base:/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.6: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/YaST2/plugin/libpy2wfm.so.2)

The error list continues. I cannot type whole error list ending with similar wordings as above as am using different computer. I tried to solve this one too by following the instructions in Relocation Error but I could not understand its line "...fixed the problem by taking /usr/local/lib out of ld.so.conf, and then running ldconfig" as am new to linux.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update Fails - Loop - Flash Player - Yast2-core

Aug 27, 2011

I am trying to update Flash-player and yast2-core as prompted by today's update icon.

I am now faced with a loop that goes like this:
1) click on icon
2) window pops up, "2 packages selected"
3) click on apply, subwindow pops up
4) click on continue, "waiting for authentication"
5) after minutes of waiting, click on cancel, nothing happens
6) click on icon killing subwindow
7) now back to 2)

Aborting the process, starting at 1) again, same mess

Conclusions:
a) No idea what was going on

b) Use Yast instead of clicking update icon

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding 11.2?

Nov 12, 2009

I just installed the new OpenSuSE 11.2 release and after coming up in graphical mode the keyboard and mouse are not responding at all.

After that via a remote login force the machine back to runlevel 3 and this makes it able to login to the console and trying to start sax2 to make a new X configuration.

Well it doesn't read the old configuration but gets stuck as well.

The install was an update from OpenSuSE 11.1.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse No More Responding?

Feb 5, 2010

On our SuSe 11.1 PC keyboard and mouse are no more responding although it did work properly until yesterday. We shut down the computer yesterday evening and today they do not work anymore. But it is not a hardware problem, we can use keyboard and mouse until Grub bootloader, but as soon as we start a Linux session (doesn't matter if normal or failsave mode) the keyboard and mouse are disabled, we can see that because the NumLock and CapsLock LEDs are switched off immediately.

We have no idea what happened. We booted from CD into rescue mode and mounted the hard disk manually and checked some logfiles, but the boot.log tells us that USB keyboard and mouse are detected, as well as the Xorg.0.log file. And we found no indication that keyboard or mouse are disabled or something like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Touchpad Not Responding At Login

Sep 29, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.3 Edu-life version a few days ago as dual-boot with Windows 7. The graphics are beautiful, and so much smoother than Ubuntu and Windows. Everything has been going great until I booted up tonight, and my touchpad nor keyboard will respond at the user login. I even plugged in an external keyboard and mouse, but still no response. I looked around on the forums, and it seems that most touchpad issues are related to GNOME and after login. But, I haven't even started a session yet. openSUSE is installed on a Dell studio xps 1640 laptop. Any ideas? I tried the fail-safe option at the GRUB, and the keyboard responds in that terminal environment.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Boot Directly To LXDE

Nov 29, 2009

I'm running an old P3 with 512 of Ram.I installed Opensuse 11.2 with the KDE desktop, and then I went online and used the one-click install to install the LXDE desktop.Now I'm trying to get my machine to boot directly to LXDE.If I end a KDE session, I can select LXDE as a new session and get into it fine. It seems to run well on this machine. But if I shutdown from LXDE, my next boot sends me straight into KDE. It seems the only way I can get to LXDE is to be in KDE first, which is kind of defeating the whole reason why I wanted a light weight and quick booting desktop for this machine.Am I missing something? I thought Opensuse automatically rebooted back into whatever desktop was used last?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade To 11.3 From LXDE Live CD?

Aug 14, 2010

I was using 11.2 quite happily, decided to install 11.3 via the LXDE live CD. Everything seems fine for the moment, apart from the fact that I can't seem to delete the LiveCD user, even when logged in as my own account. Even logging in to a terminal from my own log-in seems to result in a whoami output of linux (the liveCD user).

OpenSUSE Install :: LXDE Live Cd And Can't Boot

Aug 25, 2010

I installed lxde from a live cd and can't boot into anything. At first, when I rebooted, the computer went to grub>, so I used grub commands to find the grub menu lst. It was in (hd0,5). So I made that the root and grub said it was successful. I rebooted, now I get error 25. Was I supposed to enable one of the boot options in the setup? The setup showed two boot options, MBR and root (I think), both disabled. I just clicked continue. Did I mess up the install setup?

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE And LXDE Won't Start ; Xterm Okay

Aug 4, 2011

Since this morning, I'm having a problem which symptoms are similar to this one : Cannot Login, KDE won't start - OpenSUSE 11.3, but it affects only one user.Everything was fine yesterday, but now, everytime this one user tries to start his KDE session, the screen goes black for a few seconds before coming back to the login screen.

I tried the following :

- I installed LXDE and tried to log in : same problem

- I tried to log in Xterm : no problem

- I created a new user and tried to log in : no problem, be it KDE or LXDE

- I cleared /tmp : same problem. My /home partition is 98% full but still has 2-3GB available. The / partition is 45% full with 28GB left.

[code]....

From what I've gathered so far, it seems the problem is user-specific, graphical session-sepcific, but not desktop-specific (since both KDE and freshly installed LXDE fail in the same way)... and now I don't know what else to try.

My setup :

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed
Linux 2.6.37.6-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-21 02:17:24 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
