OpenSUSE Hardware :: Difference Between 11.4 Stable Kernels

Jun 23, 2011

I'm wondering what the stable kernel is for opensuse 11.4 kde because I ran an update and I'm at 2.6.37~ and I remember Ubuntu is at ; is the kernel considered unstable is that why opensuse is not using it yet? I just started using opensuse KDE and I haven't used other distros/linux so thats why I'm asking.

OpenSUSE Install :: Difference Between Default And Desktop Kernels?

Jan 9, 2010

Is there a description of the features and differences between the Desktop and Default kernels? Did "Desktop" arrive with 11.2 and 2.6.31? I did not notice it at first. I loaded 11.2 on a desktop machine and both default and desktop kernels were loaded to system, with Desktop set as default in grub. I have been working thru several "strange" behaviors ever since loading 11.2. At the top of my list has been the ability to shutdown the system from remote logins. I normally connect to the system via a Xwindows package (Xmanager). X works fine and I could shutdown via the GUI (Application Launcher - Leave-Shutdown).

When connected via a remote ssh link, either from a windows machine or a different linux machine, attempts to shutdown (shutdown -H now) send the expected messages, close the remote connections but leave the system still powered on but in a no-remote-connectivity state. When I upgraded to KDE 4.3.4 following the Forum Repository guidelines, I could no longer shutdown via the GUI. In searching about, I found that the Desktop kernel was running. Changed grub, rebooted under default, shutdown under GUI works again. So, for starters, I am trying to decide which kernel environment (default or desktop) should be my target for continuing to work thru issues.

Fedora :: Difference Between 586 And 686 Kernels?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a fairly aged Pentium 4, RAID, desktop computer with Fed 11. I started off with the 686 PAE kernel and update it whenever the update software tells me to. Some time ago I downloaded an NVidia driver which said it needed the 586 kernel so I installed that as well.I then uninstalled the NVidia driver as it caused some minorish problems without any improvement to the graphics. The bottom line is I now have the last three 686 kernels and the last three 586 kernels, which I'm pretty sure I don't need. The machine seems to run fine whichever I use with no discerable differences.My questions are, what is the difference between the two types, which should I actually use and how do I get rid of the other. It would at the very least reduce bandwidth use when updating.

Slackware :: 13.37 - Difference Between Huge.s And Hugemps.s Kernels?

May 26, 2011

I'm trying to decide which kernel to install in my Slackware 13.37 installation. What is the difference between huge.s and the hugemps.s kernels ? Does one do something the other does not ? I'm installing Slackware because I've read it has no Pulsemedia baked into it. I hope neither kernel has any of that stuff.

Feb 8, 2011

I'm running OpenSUSE11.3 64bits with KDE 4.4.4 (release 3). Is it safe to upgrade to KDE4.6? Is KDE 4.5 better/more stable than 4.6? Why is both 4.5 and 4.6 developed? Why not go for one version?

OpenSUSE Install :: Set The System To Keep Multiple Kernels ?

Oct 27, 2010

I can't find the place to set the system to keep multiple kernels. For the first time in a long time, updates are giving me grief. I've kept the last working nvidia driver in case I need it.

Now I would like to keep one old kernel when I update to the new one. I had a lab rat that never got rid of old kernels and that was too much. It is possible to keep the last working kernel when you update, isn't it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Authoritative Source On 11.3 Kernels?

Nov 20, 2010

OpenSuSE 11.3 i686

Installation used default options. Discovered that my "standard" Desktop kernel isn't likely PAE enabled... Have had various FF windows open for a long time even with no network connection which resulted in memory leaks (understandable). Eventually the machine slowed to a crawl with numerous FF processes running (each about 8% of CPU) and 4GB memory map (4GB physical RAM) exhausted but surprisingly the 2GB swap was totally untouched. Searching the Forums there are numerous anecdotal opinions that PAE should be or was enabled automatically at least for Desktop kernels. Viewing the OpenSuSE repository, there are kernel-pae packages for this kernel version which aren't installed.

So before I start installing packages willy-nilly, is there an authoritative published source that documents what is is in an OpenSuSE kernel package, and what combination of packages plus if necessary additional manual configurations to achieve desired goals? BTW - I'm somewhat surprised that today PAE is not automatically included in today's kernels considering how cheap hardware is... I don't know if PAE typically should be a noticeable performance hit on low resource machines(like netbooks) and would be necessary for anything configured with more than 4GB total (physical plus swap) memory.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Realtime Or Low-Latency Kernels For 11.4?

is there a realtime or low-latency kernel in a repository somewhere for OpenSUSE 11.4? I know I can just compile a rt kernel, but that's a bit tedious and I'd like to avoid it if possible.

OpenSUSE Install :: Where Is Kernel:/stable For 11.4

Mar 19, 2011

I used to install the latest kernel for opensuse 11.3 from this repo:

Index of /repositories/Kernel:/stable

but for 11.4 it is empty. I can see that for 11.3 the 2.6.38 kernel is already built.For 11.4 there is only the Kernel:/HEAD repo. Are we going to have a kernel:/stable repo for 11.4?

OpenSUSE Install :: Official Repository For Newer Kernels?

May 12, 2010

Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.

OpenSUSE :: Update Of Dbus From 1.2 To 1.4 Running KDE 4.4.4 Stable

Sep 29, 2010

Has anyone tried updating dbus in factory up to level 1.4 under openSuSE 11.3 x86_64 and continue to run KDE 4.4.4 Stable? Just wondering if it causes any issues or if it forces you to go to KDE 4.5.1 Factory. I've tried updating to 4.5.1 without, other thread, and the suggestion was to update dbus to 1.4 to correct speed issues.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Shell Extensions Available In Stable Repository

Apr 29, 2011

The gnome-shell-extensions have been accepted into the stable repository and should appear soon along with an updated gnome-shell. Now, if you installed the extensions for my factory branch whilst I was working on the extensions, you need to remove the repository and remove the installed packages as there have been some name changes to the extensions. I don't recommend the xrandr extension, it will crash the shell! If you do try it, you only need to do a ctrl+alt+F1 and login as root user and zypper rm, logout and ctrl+alt+F7 and login.

OpenSUSE Install :: What Is Difference Between OpenSUSE Desktop And Server?

Dec 21, 2009

I am new to Linux. I want to set up a home file/media server using Linux and have been investigating the possibility of using OpenSUSE for this task for a couple days now. I posted up some questions over at linux questions, but figured this one would be better suited for the OpenSUSE forum. My question is simple, is there any fundamental difference between OpenSUSE Server, and OpenSUSE desktop?

What I mean is, is there any difference to the basic programming of the operating system. From what I gather, when you install a Linux Distro for a server, it is just a striped down version of the desktop install. It has no GUI, and installs the complete bare minimum of software to get your server up and running. Is this correct? I am asking these questions because, as I said, I am new to Linux. I am not comfortable using command line only, and would very much like to install the desktop version of OpenSUSE, plus Samba, openSSH and Webadmin, then use that configuration for a server. Would setting up OpenSUSE as I stated above be the same as using the server install, just more "bloated?" Or is the server version of OpenSUSE coded differently?For example, comparing Windows Vista to Windows Home Server. Windows Vista isn't practical to use as a home server OS, simply because it was never coded to be one. Where as Home Server comes with software and is setup to be a server.

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, and please correct me if I am. Linux is much different. Any Linux distro can be a server, even the desktop version. You just need to get the proper programs (like Samba, SSH, Webadmin) for the job. The people who use the Server version, simply just want something less bloated then the desktop version, but the desktop version works just as good as a server if you have the proper hardware? I was debating on putting Windows Home server on the machine, but very much want to learn Linux, and figure this is as good of an opportunity as any. It also helps that a desktop install of OpenSUSE takes less resources then Windows Home Server.

OpenSUSE Install :: Stable - Install Nvidia - Driver 260.xx.xx In Opensuse 11.3?

Jan 19, 2011

i know if u search a solution in forums u get so much confused information. i hope this little manual will help all with the nvidia driver problem! u dont need to edit or create a xorg.conf or something to run the driver correct and u need no blacklistedit too! if u did the standard opensuse 11.3 install its only about 2 kernel packages and the disabling of the x11noveau driver.

1. after standard installing opensuse 11.3 update and install the opensuse softwareupdates

2. install with the yast software re/installer:

(from Desktop or from the terminal. the terminal text command is: yast2)


u dont need to change the menu.lst after all, only u get many problems. run the midnight commander and delete the nomodeset word and the noveau driver would be normally still active after reboot.

OpenSUSE Install :: 32- And 64-bit Difference?

Sep 29, 2010

Not much of an expert with computers and completely new with Linux. I am considering installation of openSUSE 11.3 and I know for a fact that my PC can handle the 64-bit version. Questions:

1) Do the 32- and 64-bit versions install with the same kind of software packages?
2) Does the 64-bit version have more/less/equal available software in the repositories for download?
3) If I wanted to set up a workgroup with another PC that has Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows XP Pro (both 32-bit) installed, would it matter which bit version of openSUSE I use? (In terms of ease in creating the workgroup, access of files, etc.)

4) If I install the 32-bit version now, can I switch to the 64-bit version later? What are the caveats?

As I said at the beginning, I am not much literate on these things so I hope I am not asking nonsense questions...

OpenSUSE Install :: Difference Between CD's And DVD's?

Jul 23, 2011

On the downloads page I notice the cd's are not upgradable, but the dvd free version is.. This seems backward to me. The cd's have less stuff so they should be able to be upgraded to the fuller version via the repos - or at least get all the stuff it's missing. Where as the dvd's are stuffed with over 3 gigs of things one would think it should not need any upgrading.

Or are they talking about being upgradable to the paid for version? or something entirely different?
