OpenSUSE Install :: Authoritative Source On 11.3 Kernels?

Nov 20, 2010

OpenSuSE 11.3
2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop 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.

Networking :: Can't Install DAFS Because Source Code Is For Old Kernels 2.4

Mar 17, 2010

Has somebody used DAFS (Direct Access File System)?I've found a lot of literature about this file system,where the comprassion tests promise a ~20-50% faster packet transmission,than in the strandard NFS.But I can't install DAFS,because the source code is for old kernels 2.4.Does anyone know,why did the research of this file system stopped in 2003 year,and there are no newer versions?

Networking :: Ath9k Driver Installation With Source From Kernels For 2.6.34 ?

Oct 22, 2010

I have had some trouble with understanding the wireless drivers. I am using backtrack 4 R1, and the reason was merely for the network and having many necessary networking dependencies already there. However I found that I am using a HAL for the ath9k and madwifi-ng drivers, thus I must patch the card and go through all of that.

The specific distribution I am using is Backtrack 4 R1 with KDE3 and ubuntu on the 2.6.34 kernel. I know I have through an update script found the wireless drivers and downloaded them, however all attempts to get it to fully work haven't helped. I checked the forums, and it doesn't seem like they consider it a backtrack specific question but a linux specific question. I performed hwinfo and it returns ath9k and the memory address, channels 1-14, wlan frequencies(2.412,2.417, 2.422, 2.427, 2.432, 2.437, 2.442, 2.447, 2.452, 2.457, 2.462, 2.467, 2.472, 2.484. I have all modes of encryption set.

I am using both ifconfig and iwconfig with a wicd frontend to access the network typically. Unfortunately I am only seeing a wlan0 and no ath0. Furthermore, I manually issue these commands I am doing so I set each aspect of the card up (i.e essid, channel, mtu, fragmentation, etc....).

Now I did shed some light upon this in the sense that I found out how to initialize the madwifi-ng hal abstraction layer via 'start airmon-ng wlan0' and then it returns.....

mon0 ath9k py0 etc. etc. etc.( this isn't exact I am unfortunately not at my computer. But the device is then able to work, however I am not sure as to why I am not able to have the ath0 device in my wireless devices if indeed everything else appears to be ath0.

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 :: 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.

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 :: How To Install API From Source Code?

Feb 6, 2010

In what directory do I need to install a tarball containing API libraries in order to import the libraries for programming?I've been trying for a few hours now to get started on my homework - but I need the GLUT api for OpenGL. After attempting to compile a simple test program, I got the error
Code:
glut.h: No such file or directory

First off, I'm not even really sure if OpenGL wasn't included in the original install or if I even need it when programming with GLUT (I truelly am clueless, lol). But after reading as much as I could, I've only been able to deduce that I need to install the API libraries somewhere on my disc.So I found the tarball, and there are special instructions for installing a linux machine. I found instructions saying to install it in the directory /usr/lib/ but is that right for the SUSE distro?Also, if anybody knows anything about GLUT/OpenGL programming + openSUSE11.2.

I had somewhat of a simple questioned I tried out the latest revision to the Kernel of Day for Opensuse 11.2 built against the master. kernel-default-2.6.36-rc3.10.1.i586.rpm however looking at the tree it appears Novell/Suse doesn't release the source.rpm thinking I could recompile it to support the dependencies that I'm missing.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - Cannot Find Source Media Although Does Boot ISO DVD?

Aug 15, 2010

I'm trying to install 11.3. The iso install DVD boots up ok, says 'welcome' in far more languages than I understand, I select English & US English then all useful progress stops. It suddenly can't detect my CD/DVD (although it DID when the system booted with the CD/DVD drive selected as 1st device to try to boot). I've tried pushing the button to eject and reload the DVD, no dice. Nothing seems to work, when I finally go for shutdown it suggests I might need to load a driver. My drive is a fairly new plextor px-b940sa.

Searching the plextor corp site for linux turns up zilch as does the knowledge base at novell.com. it's all in knowing the right magics words i suppose. my chip is the intel 6 core. my mobo is asus p6x58d (actually im wondering if it's the culprit because it does some fancy tricks). i tried my store-bought 11.1 suse install disk, it has the same difficulty. i suppose a usb-linked external dvd drive might be the obvious solution (won't cost too much but fairly likely to have some problem).

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Install Software From Source B/c Missing C Libraries?

Jul 11, 2010

I'm having trouble installing software from the source files. From what I can gather the problem lies with not having the correct c libraries installed. My understanding is you use the ./configure, make, and make install commands in a terminal to install. And that the configure command checks to see if you have everything to install. this is the output when I try to configure:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting The Source For /init Inside The Installer's Initrd?

Mar 21, 2011

In short. I've cracked open the initrd file of the openSuSE installer to have a look - I've determined it's an initramfs which by default would execute ''/init''GREAT! But not so much... init should find the installation files et cetera - but I haven't a clue how it does this because it's a compiled binary So, my question is this - do anyone know where I can find the source for this file ?

If not, who should I contact to find it? I really, really need to look at it.. I'm trying to throw the installer over to a USB harddrive (with multiple other installers, each in their own directory etc. etc.) - the idea is to create a USB HDD with installation mediums for the OS's I use so the recommended methods of dedicating a partition to openSuSE is not going to work...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Compiling Kernel-source For NVidia Driver Install

Jun 18, 2011

In order to configure a dual display in a fresh 11.4 installation, I am attempting to install the nVidia driver according to the instructions in SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE. I have not previously compiled or configured a kernel so I largely followed the instructions from OpenSUSE 11.2 - How to compile a Kernel for Newbies.The currently installed kernel is 2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop. The graphics card is an ASUS EN9600GSO (512MB).

In Yast, I installed gcc, make, kernel-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2) and kernel-desktop-devel (v. 2.6.37.1-1.2). Per the "hard way" instructions, I did not install kernel-source.

Networking :: BIND - Remove "Authoritative Nameservers" In UDP Message?

Jan 28, 2011

We have our Microsoft AD DNS servers replicating to our Sidewinder - which uses BIND for its DNS server. We ran into a situation where reverse lookup requests to the Sidewinder returned back a truncated UDP packet to the DNS client. When we added another DNS Microsoft Domain Controller, it added that name in the authoritative nameservers section of the UDP message which put it beyond the 512 byte limit. It was at about 500 bytes before we added the domain controller - then it moved to 529 which caused BIND to set the truncation flag bit in the UDP header causing the DNS client to come back in TCP mode to get the full message.

Microsoft DNS doesn't send back the "Authoritative nameservers" section in its UDP responses to reverse lookups - they probably learned that the hard way and took it out and only send back the Question and Answer section. Is there a way to modify BIND to not send the "Authoritative nameservers" section in its UDP responses and only the Question and Answer?

Ubuntu :: Did Karmic Install Two Kernels On Your System?

Apr 13, 2010

After I upgraded Jaunty to Karmic, I found that my grub menu has two pairs of OS options and that the kernel is slightly different between the two. The highest numbered kernel seems to be a working OS release but the next choice in the list does not work correctly - its mouse pointer is invisible!I originally had installed Intrepid in a partition and I used it for a while. Then I decided to upgrade to Jaunty so I put that release in a different partition. I had major troubles getting the system going after the upgrade but I eventually succeeded.Later, I decided to try out Karmic so I created a Live CD of it and tested that. It seemed to be good so I decided to do a standard upgrade. At this point I still had the original Intrepid version on disk in its own partition. The release notes suggested that a network upgrade was the preferred way to upgrade to Karmic so I did that, even though I had the CD. The process seemed to complete OK. I was getting some X windows complaints and X was running in low graphics mode so I uninstalled and reinstalled the fglrx driver; X was happy afterwards. That seemed to be the only significant problem with the upgrade.I noticed that my grub menu now had three fairly new selection pairs, as well as the memtest and the original Intrepid software. I had gained two pairs during the Karmic upgrade. I could not tell which was which by the kernel numbers. I decided that three sets were inappropriate and I decided to remove one set. I was hoping to remove whichever set was superfluous or unnecessary. I picked the oldest of the three (i.e., the one with the smallest kernel number) and used Synaptic to abolish it.

Now, I had two pairs left. The topmost pair is a working Karmic version which I am using right now. The other pair seems to be a broken version of Karmic. By that, I mean that it starts up exactly the same as the working version but when it gets to the login screen then there is no cursor! Actually, the cursor is there but it is invisible. I found that I could run the cursor all the way to the top right corner, click the left mouse button, and get the shutdown/restart/etc. menu. The keyboard's arrow keys could then be used to select a menu item and the mouse button would activate it. But all the while, the cursor was invisible! Of course, this makes the system useless.So, I think that I need to use Synaptic to remove the malfunctioning pair. Questions: why did the upgrade give me two kernels? Would it be safe to remove the earlier one?What I would really like is to have both Karmic and Jaunty available from the grub menu. I am afraid that I will have to do a new install in a different partition to get Jaunty back onto the system, and then will have to repeat all of the customizing and software installations that I have applied during the last year or so. Does anyone know of a shortcut around that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Install Nvidia Proprietary Driver For Two Kernels

May 26, 2010

I am using the most recent ubuntu kernel (2.6.32-22-generic) for general stuff, and a real time kernel (2.6.31-10-rt) for music recording. Everything was working fine under Karmic.

When I upgraded to 10.04, I had problems with my Nvidia video card, so I uninstalled everying related to Nvidia. And reinstalled the driver using the installer script from the Nvidia website.

I can install the driver for one kernel, but when I boot on the other, it says my X config does not work, and I am back to a low-res no-effect display.

If I then try to reinstall the driver under that kernel, then the first one stops working with the Nvidia driver.
