OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Insists In Starting X - Stopped With Message On Tty1 "Starting YaST2"

Jul 18, 2011

I installed OS11.4 on my old laptop, Compaq Armada E500., 512MB RAM, ATI Rage Mobility. During installation I chose "minimal server" and added some development packages, lxde and a little more. I chose to start in runlevel 3 which is full networking without X. Still, when computer is booted it tries to start Xorg which doesn't work because of some problem w driver. The start-up seems to stop there, it never loads completely - seems most things in runlevel 3 are not started (see below) I can manually login on laptop and fix it - but never permanently, same thing again after reboot.

I have checked /etc/inittab & yast - both states default runlevel is 3. I have checked services to be started both directly, browsing directory /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/, and with YaST, it is very clear X should not load during boot. But, as said, it does.. I don't really care about the driver problem right now, I can fix that later when I have more time. So how do I stop X from getting started automatically?

More info, if needed: The installation also stopped with message on tty1 "Starting YaST2" and tty8 showing errors with graphics driver (mach64). The system seemed to be installed though, so I simply rebooted (issuing "reboot" from tty2).


I'm not completely sure where it stops, network is configured but keyboard is wrong and mysql & everything after is not started, so somewhere between S02network and S06kbd. I'm going to use it as a server for testing purposes so no X is actually needed - however I do want to have X & lxde installed just in case, my Internet connection at home is terribly slow so I need most things I might need in the future installed today.

OpenSUSE Install :: Starting Xserver After Upgrade / Error Message That Current Kernel Can Not Be Loaded?

May 21, 2011

I was about to do upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4.I was following the guide I found in opensuse's website. I was to the point where I had to disable all 11.3 repositories and add the 11.4 at that point I forgot to change my nvidia repository ( I have a g210m graphic card).

thus after the upgrade the X could not start at all. I think this was because Yast could not find the nvidia driver.

Using text mode YaSt2 I added the nvidia driver but after restart I can not see and X running. I receive an error message that the current kernel can not be loaded!!!

I also checked in command line if there is something like Sax2.. but I couldnot find anything.

OpenSUSE :: Can't Update 11.3 \ Get A Similar Error Message When Starting Yast Software Management?

Mar 13, 2011

I usually run my updates every Friday, my last good update was 4-Mar-2011. I could not update this week and got an error -"PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium'"I get a similar error message when starting Yast Software Management.Is this related to the 11.4 release? I'm waiting for fewer bugs before I upgrade to 11.4, so I'd like to be able to keep current with 11.3.

General :: Strange Message When Starting Computer?

Sep 20, 2010

This puzzling message pops up during startup and forces a reboot:

Checking root filesystems. fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda1 The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem, then the superblock is corrupt. This was typed in not copied.

The laptop is running gentoo linux. Here is the fstab file and instead of having "boot" on its own partition I decided to have both "/" and "boot" in the same partition. This has never caused any problems before so I don't understand what the problem is now.

Ubuntu :: Suddenly Within Last 4-5 Days / Mail-notification Program Stopped Starting

Mar 25, 2010

Suddenly within the last 4-5 days my mail-notification program stopped starting.Googling the error really doesn't give much help, it sounds like the same error message is in tens of libraries.Anyone know what might be going on?Running Ubuntu Jaunty, and already tried reinstalling the program. It's the normal mail-notification from the Add/Remove Programs thing.

Apparently it only does this when it tries to connect to the internet. It runs fine when I'm not connected, but crashes as soon as I hit refresh. (And also crashes at startup when I'm already connected to the internet.)

OpenSUSE Install :: Not Starting After System Recovery

Nov 2, 2010

I have a HP mini 5101 wit OpenSuse 11.2. Unfortunately, I wanted to have a newer version 11.3, but I upgraded in a wrong way and the system not started any more, failed in start-up level 5 and ran the Kernel. I tried to find the solution, searched on google, but I think made it worse (personal feeling): made some changes in xconfig. Of course, the problem remained. Then I decided to make a system recovery. Everything was OK, until the last step, when the system prepared the first login. I saw this message for a few seconds:

*** Starting Yast2 ***
basename: missing operand
Try 'basename --help' for more information
SPP: could not open file: at /usr/share/sax/modules/ line 61
When I switch on my netbook, during the loading everything seems ok, after loading I see the background but no login window, nothing. I don't know what's the problem.
I started the system recovery again and again. In few times I saw this on screen for a second, then return the background:

OpenSUSE Install :: Starting Script At Login?

Aug 26, 2011

I had a question about starting scripts when my user logs into the system. The script is just a simple bash script that runs an infinite while loop that does a who | grep <USERNAME> and if it returns zero then executes a program and then exits the script. First I tried adding my script to the /etc/init.d dir but after login I could not find the script running anywhere using ps -ef and/or ps -aux. Then I tried adding the script into the /etc/init.d/rc*.d directories but also could not find it running. It wasn't until I decided to use the "Startup Applications" option in the "Control Center". So my question about that is, where does that application add those apps to so they start at login time? I could not find any "links", etc... for that script in any of those dirs?

Also, one other question. How do I create a user that I can use for SSH and su to if need be, but not have the option to login to that user at boot time. Before I created the other user, it would just automatically login to the my "everyday" user account, which is what I want. But now with the new user I get prompted to select which user I want to login in to.

I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.3, everything went fine untill last step : configuring hardware. So my install hangs up at the point "starting sound card" (well it is in french, but it should be this translation in english). My sound card is a classical realtek hd audio card (from a laptop toshiba x200). In the terminal(/dev/tty1) I can see that it is hanging at Starting Yast2. I had no pb with my previous installs regarding the sound card (with openSuse 11.2 and earlier). what to do to have this step working, or at least have the sound card not started at this point.

OpenSUSE Install :: Blank Screen While Starting LIVECD (Gnome/KDE) On Proliant 160 G6?

Oct 11, 2010

I want to install Suse 11.3 on a Proliant server. I thought not to take the obvious Windows CD's (little sorrow now) and try Linux. I used an USB Live CD to start. I tried all the startup options like apci=off and so on. Also tried lower resolutions and VESA. Still no luck. After running and starting (seeing in ALT-F4 the Kernel loading), all ALT screens get a blank black screen. Only option is to restart, while then SUSE is displaying it is going down.

OpenSUSE Install :: Starting From External USB Storage Device (Intel Based Macs)

Dec 17, 2010

So my aim is to install openSUSEx64 11.3 onto my Macbook; but for whatever reason, upon boot-up, the system won't recognize the USB thumb drive with the expanded image of openSUSE on it. I followed steps in Terminal to expand the image onto the said USB stick and know it worked properly because Terminal said "Process Completed." Do I need a special type of USB thumb drive or am I missing something? I am using a late-2009 Macbook. By the way, these were the steps used to prep the USB thumb stick:

1. Open a Terminal (under Utilities)
2. Run diskutil list to get the current list of devices
3. Insert your flash media
4. Run diskutil list again and determine the device node assigned to your flash media (e.g. /dev/disk2)
5. Run diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN
6. Execute sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/diskN bs=1m
7. Run diskutil eject /dev/diskN and remove your flash media when the command completes

OpenSUSE :: KPackagekit Or Zypper Or YaST2 On 11.4 / Can't Correct The Software Origin Message?

May 28, 2011

I can't get KPackageKit run successfully even once. Every-time I get the same message that can't correct the software origin as following:

While I can update the software through zypper in the terminal window, I also get a warning message to say some package will NOT be update as following :

I already implement the one-click solution to thread:Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide, except that I got another warning message when I click to switch system packages to the version on packman repository as following:

Another question is every time I click the accept button of the YaST2 window, it will install the packages and quit directly and never give any confirmation of the result. Is this normal?

The last question is when I use Amarok or qmmp to play music which be shared via Samba on my homeserver, the system always copy the music file to the local folder,/var/tmp, and then can begin to play rather than play it immediately by stream. Is this also normal?
