openSuse 11.4 + Gnome 3 (upgraded from oneclick install). A couple of ago I ran zypper update and there were some updates available for chromium (and a few other things). I installed them, did some work in libreoffice (dint use chromium then) and turned the computer off. Today I needed to do some web surfing, so boot up my computer, launch chromium and get the following message (I translated it from spanish as I use the spanish version of opensuse)...
Failed to launch <<Chromium web browser>> Failure executing child process <<chromium>> (The specified file or folder doesn't exists) Before the "update" chromium worked perfectly. Now it doesn't even start.
I just installed openSUSE 11.4 and after the installation of VirtualBox I coudn't start it. The icon at the cursor kept jumping but no response. I tried to run the binary from Konsole and I got the following message:VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyFileInternal: Failed to open "/usr/lib/virtualbox/VMMR0.r0": No such file or directory (2)I checked YaST to see which packages were installed:

I have just done a fresh network install on SUSE on a new HP Proliant ML115 server. The install seemed to go OK, but on rebooting after the install I get a shell logon/prompt -- no GUI. Have tried reinstalling with the same result. If I try to run startkde I get a message that says "$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server."
I got an opensuse 10.2 on a aged desktop. Once start, it just stops at command line login prompt. I have to login and type 'startx' to get the GUI. Since I haven't used this computer for over half year. I couldn't remember what I did last time. Any tips for this problem?
With the language set to either English (United States) or English (United Kingdom) ALL words are underlined in red, as though they are misspelled. I have ended up turning off the spell checker as it is so annoying. Checking Google it seems this is a know problem but there doesn't seem to be a solution for it.
I have recently disabled nautilus from showing up on my desktop. Now I can't seem to start nautilus. Starting it from gnome-terminal doesn't display anything, and it never shows, and it never terminates. The way I disabled nautilus from showing up on my desktop was by following Xmonad/Using xmonad in Gnome - HaskellWiki
My laptop is a Core 2 Centrino and i installed OpenSUSE 11.3 i586 on it recently. I tried to install the graphic card's driver using this instruction:ATI Installer HOWTO for openSUSE usersafter installation was done, i restarted the system but during the boot, where the openSUSE appears, the screen went black and nothing happened afterward untill i turned of the system manually.i tried again and same result, so i logged in with failsafe and un-installed those packages, now the system boots successfully, but it boots to the terminal instead of the desktop. i might have removed the X server package or something important.now that i have access to terminal and i can log in, i thought i can do something with it and solve it this way rather than re-installing the whole OS.he graphic card is :ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, if anyone knows how to the driver for this card, please let me know how to.
I just upgraded my home machine to 11.2 but apache is not starting automatically. I tried deleting apache2 in YaST and reinstalling it but it still doesn't start. It doesn't appear as an icon in YaST under network services either. There's a log directory for it but no logs. There's an /etc/apache2 directory.
I haven't tried starting it manually because (a) I don't want to destroy any evidence and (b) I want it to work automatically in future.
Is there something else I should be doing? Or how to diagnose?

I recently installed Chromium and went to listen to one of my favorite podcasts, only to find that it wouldn't play. Like the title says, it plays perfectly well in Firefox. Is there some Chromium extension I need in order to play .mp3 files?
So far, as a former Chrome user on Windows, I am enjoying Chromium. However, there is one glaring problem that is bugging me, and is disrupting my usage of the browser.
Chromium will not show Japanese fonts properly. It's not that everything shows up as boxes. The problem is that certain characters will show in Japanese, and certain will show in Korean, thereby making the Japanese text unreadable. Copying and pasting into gedit allows me to read the Japanese text, and Firefox never had this problem, however, within Chromium, this is unreadable.
Here is a picture to show you what I mean:
Has anyone else had this problem, and fixed it? I have installed the language packs and have tried setting things to different unicode fonts and changing the encoding to unicode and even Japanese, and continue to get these errors.
When I was using polipo on Ubuntu, it automatically start at system boot. Now I'm using opensuse, I installed polipo from the repository, however, I have to manually start it by using "sudo polipo". If root privilege is not given, polipo won't work correctly. What should I do to make it start at boot automatically?
a friend told me to creat /etc/boot.local, with code...

1) How can I learn which packages I've deleted or installed to make the changes back - I mean install deleted packages and delete installed by mistake?
2) Is there an instrument to make a complete system roll-back to some time point?
I've gotten everything working on my laptop except the webcam. I'm trying to use webkam (from kde repo) but the launcher starts up but the program doesn't start. The driver is "uvcvideo" which loads with no error messages.

My wifes computor crashed during an update with a message to fill in a report. It would not respond to any key presses. The computor has been running 11.3 since it was realeased without problems other than jerky video. The computor will not boot it asks for the password but does not accept it, Although I can see the Home folder it does not mount. I have tried testdisk but although it sees the partions it cannot acess them.
How do I get into safe mode of something of the sort? I thought all I had to do was tap F6 as the computer boots up, it was running perfectly untill I updated it, when I pressed restart it started to shut down and then it just got stuck in a black screen with a small white cursor flashing, and there it stayed I've restarted it a load of times and no luck, I was getting ready to reinstall it when I remembered that I have no other cd burner in the house other than the one on the machine that's just packed up and though I could use a flash drive neither of the 2 I have with me are big enough, the bigger ones are both at work along with my ubuntu instalation CD.
On a second probably unhelpful note I'm getting really fed up with ubuntu it's proving to be about as unreliable as windows, every other week for whatever reason it fancies it just packs up and more frustrating for me is that while I know my way around windows and can usually sort it out I haven't got a clue about how to sort Linux problems out and before anyone mentions it yes it was a relatively new instalation, all I had installed on it other than the OS was the updates up unlit now and XBMC and it all had been working flawlessly for 2 weeks or so!
A couple of days ago my girlfriend and I were using my laptop to watch Hulu on my tv. I've been able to do this in the past with some frustration because it is not exactly clear what settings to use so that the tv works and doesn't distort the picture. While we were using it, the update manager came up and I let the computer update while we were watching Hulu. It came time for the computer to request that I restart and I selected "Restart Later," which I didn't exactly do after we were done watching. I shut the computer down and the next day when we were about to turn the computer on to watch again, it turned itself off after selecting Ubuntu. I tried again and caught a message that it couldn't find the drive that Ubuntu was on. I haven't done anything else to the computer aside from updating it. I am running Vista 32 (shudders) as well as Ubuntu 10.04. I am currently on the Vista part of the computer and can see the folder for Ubuntu on the computer.
My question is: Is there any way that I can go into that folder and change something through Windows so that I can get Ubuntu back? Or do I have to reinstall Ubuntu, and how would I go about doing that?
Edit: I should clarify that I use the S-video out for watching tv - not sure that it matters.
I just recently updated my Ubuntu's software on 10.04. I restarted my computer and everything was fine. The next day I tried to get into Ubuntu it just goes to a black screen and restarts.
I am currently dual booting with windowsXP/Ubuntu. Everything was working fine until just a few days ago. Now I am unsure what to do. When given the choice to boot between WindowsXP and Ubuntu only windows works. When I click on windows it loads up windows. When I click Ubuntu it just goes to a black screen and then restarts and prompts me again to select between them.
Please help. I am unsure what is wrong as I am still very new to Linux and using this type of OS. I am not sure if I need to re-install, but this would obvious be the last option.
