I tried to install on an Armari Gravistar machine Open Suse 11.3 and 11.2 at 64 bit but both haven't worked, after the welcome I press install, it loads something and then the computer is on the screen black and nothing happens. The 11.3 at 32 bit installs but in this manner I cannot use the 16GB RAM of the machine.
I have tried installing 11.2 64 bit with Gnome. Every time if finishes the install and reboots it will start HAL daemon and just black screen. I have tried loading with using the number 3 with no video. Same thing black screen after loading HAL daemon. I did a install with selecting VESA same thing.
I just wanted to install openSUSE 11.3 64bit. Installation works fine until reboot request. It switches to console, saying that it tries to load without reboot, screen becomes black, i got a cursor with animated wait-symbol and then it freezes. Can't move the mouse, no reaction on keyboard inputs, HDD-led not blinking. If I reset my PC and boot the new installation, it says that an error occurred and asks me to complete the unfinished installation. It starts auto-configuration and freezes again at about 3%. I tried again and some time it did not start the graphical yast but in textmode. The freeze came at the same position, but it posted many lines on console with error messages. I could not scroll, so I saw only parts of it, saying kernel panic and many addresses.
I guessed that it has to do with my chipset and graphics card, it is a nVidia GeForce 9300 chipset (MCP7A) with onboard graphics. It works fine with openSUSE 11.2 64bit by the way, but it was not supported in earlier versions than 11.2. So I tried to install it with proprietary drivers. I started the installation again and added the nVidia repository and a Packman repo and selected the driver which works fine on 11.2. Error was same as above. Next I tried an openSUSE 11.3 32bit Live CD that came with some PC magazine and lay around and it is booting and works fine!
This was confusing to me, so I wanted to try the 64bit version of the live CD. Which was again not booting. It freezes at some part, maybe when it tries to start X. But it also freezes booting with 'nomodeset' (found it somewhere here), in VESA mode and even in textmode! So i guess it's not X what causes the freeze. But it is sometime at the end of booting up, as far as I can say. I would like to use the 64bit version but I don't know where to search for the problem. I checked every checksum before burning, so a broken media should not be the reason
1. I have dual booted Suse and Win Xp in past. Can idea be applied to different versions of Suse? I have a working Suse11.2 , and I have a spare partition (15GB) which can be re-formated.
2. Can i do a clean new install to the spare partition? Thus ending with two working Suse versions? ( Separate /home partitions). This would allow a) reserve of a working system while checking that 11.3 works. Then remove 11.2 later , and how to do that.
that's it! I got OpenSuse 11.2 and the size of the Repo has exceeded the 4 GB limit. This means that the mirror doesn't fit on my USB-stick anymore, nor would it fit on aDVD-RAM/RW (thus I can't distribute the updates anymore). Yes, there are bigger USB-sticks and BR-RWs, but in the end it is pure insanity!
I'm having trouble installing the latest openSuSE 11.2 32bit using NFS. The issue appears during the text-interface, before switching to the GUI. The first strange thing I noticed after mounting the ISO is the change in User/Group-IDs. Earlier versions don't do this:
Code: # mount ./openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso /images/suse11.2 -o loop # ls -lah /images dr-xr-xr-x 7 root root 6.0K Dec 1 2006 suse10.2/ dr-xr-xr-x 8 root root 6.0K Jun 10 2008 suse11/ drwxr-xr-x 8 98 98 6.0K Nov 6 16:21 suse11.2/ drwxr-xr-x 8 98 98 6.0K Nov 6 14:14 suse11.2_x64/
When starting the installation process on the client system I get a "No repository found" message. Checking the error console (Alt+F4) shows:
Code: SQUASHFS error: Minor/Major mismatch, trying to mount a newer 4.0 filesystem SQUASHFS error: Please update your kernel
Older Versions (11.0, 11.1) are working OK. This error is suspicious since it remains after deactivating the NFSv4 in /etc/sysconfig/nfs and commenting out the NFSv4 export lines in /etc/exports.
I just installed openSuse 11.2. I added extra repo's like packman and Mozilla. I gave them priority level 80. The normal openSuse repo's have priority level 99.Still, Yast does not show newer versions from Packman or Mozilla.Yast completely ignores the prioritylevels of the repo's.The only time Yast shows packages from other repo's, is when they are not in the default repo's, like XMMS,w32codec-all, etc.So the repo's are added in the right way,but something strange happens in software management.
When I search for firefox, it shows the old version 3.5.6-1.1.1.When I click on the tab versions, I see that version 3.6.0-1.2 is there from openSuse buildservice.Why is Yast not showing the higher version (available) in the mainscreen?When I select it manually, Yast complains about dependancies because it is not aware of newer versions of mozilla xulrunner.
If I boot from the opensuse 64bit DVD (Ver.11.0/11.1/11.2 - its the same effect)-the bootmenu appears-i choose to install opensuse in the menu-now the kernel is loading-then i see shortly the next screen-and then my notebook reboot.I have the effect also in the live-version 64bit.The 32bit version works properly.i haven't any problems with vista 64bit or Ubuntu/Kubuntu 64bit, but the same effect with mandriva 2010.0 64bit.
I am a complete newbie who recently installed openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit). My desktop is KDE. Motherboard is MSI X58 Eclipse. Audio card (came with MB) is Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme H/W.
As the title of my message indicates, there's no sound coming out from the speakers. I know that both speakers and sound card work fine because I just tested them under Windows XP.
I launched YaST, chose the Sound icon, clicked on Add, selected Creative Labs. The sound card model that comes close to the one I have should be X-Fi. So I chose that, selected Quick Automatic Setup and I get the following error message: An error occurred during the installation of X-Fi. The kernel module snd-ctxfi for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
I then went to Open Source - SoundCard Support (Creative Labs' Open Source - SoundCard Support) but I did not download any drivers because of the following warnings: * THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED BETA DRIVER. There is no technical support for this driver. * This beta driver has only been tested on the following 32-bit / 64-bit Linux distributions: Ubuntu� 7.10, openSUSE� 10.3 and Red Hat� Enterprise Linux� 5.1 (64-bit only). * We recommend that only experienced users install this driver. Do not install this driver on a system used to perform critical tasks.
I have cleaned-intall 11.4 After the installation, the KDE environment is not booting as the default, but runtime level 5 boot instead. I have checked my installation and ensured to have KDE4 installed.
Please advise how to have KDE boot.
My graphics card is ATI Radeon Mobility X1400 on Acer Travelmate 4670.
I have installed Opensuse 11.4 and the desktop won't start i get an green striped screen, i have tried to run yast but it seems mine NVIDIA isn't correct installed.
I have an NVidia SE6150 Graphic Card and i have tried to configure the startup parameter vga=0x317, i have changed this to vga=0 to get vesa mode but that doesn't work, i have an wide screen monitor that supports 24 bit and 1360x768.
I just loaded openSUSE 11.2 64bit and can't get VMware server to install. I had it working just fine in 11.1. I installed: kernel-source, make, gcc, gcc-c++, downloaded VMware server RPM installed with Yast. opened a console went root and ran: /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl. Make aborts with the following few lines:
Prior to this had a whole rift of Warning Such as:
Unable to build the vmmon module.
In the past I followed instructions I down loaded for "swerdna" and it worked well.
First I tried to install suse 11.4 64 bit from the Live CD, but when I tried to install, the screen was totally distorted (only the mouse pointer was possible to see with no problem).
So I tried to install from the DVD. This time the graphical of the installation worked perfectly. So i installed KDE. (the .iso is perfect, i used the md5) Everything normal until the Login screen, again is totally distorted, and can observe only the mouse. But I could log in normally just typing the password and pressing enter, it made the normal sound of suse opening the session, but remained totally distorted the image.
My computer is: HP Pavilion dv6000 - AMD Turion X2 64bit, with NVidia chipset (GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M). The suse 11.3 64bit was operating normally, with the NVidia drivers, but i installed some package that kde did not work anymore. So I decided to install 11.4.
Like subject says, everytime my computer put the monitor on standby when I wake up the monitor the computer keeps loggin me out of my account, have to log in everytime i wake up the **** monitor, anyone knows a way to fix this behavior?
today I've got an application which is need glibc-2.1 32bit but my opensuse 11.2 is 64bit.I've checked the yast but nothing interesting catch my eyes. is there any solution to install glibc 2.1 32bit on a 64bit box?
I have this 11.0 64bit workstation here. It has been running flawlessly for the longest time. It is setup really nicely for this particular job.Anyways, I would to upgrade it to 11.2 64bit without starting from scratch. What would be the best, simplest way to do this?
I just bought used IBM Thinkpad T60 with come with Intel Core 2 Duo 1.66Ghz. After I check with Intel, it's is T5500 which is EM64T enabled, so I can use 64bit OS. Then I upgrade the RAM to the MAX = 4GB PC 5300 DDR2.
g3ck0@linux-l90k:~> cat /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 6 model : 15 model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T5500 @ 1.66GHz stepping : 6 cpu MHz : 1000.000
I am currently running windows 7, i would like to be able to dual-boot with openSuse 11.3 64-bit, at the moment I have two seperate partitions each 111gb in size and i wish to install suse onto the D: partition without effecting my windows installation or any data on the c drive.
When i got to the "Discs" stage of the installation i was very confused by this as i am completely new to Linux and dual-booting, i thought it would be a simple case of selecting my d: drive and installing straight to that but i cannot work out how to do this.
I Just loaded 11.2 64 bit, initially the kernel was "default", however, after I installed my Nvidia drivers it changed to desktop, I'm not sure I understand? In GRUB my screen lists it as desktop. Is "default" somewhere? Was it replaced? Things seem to be working alright in most cases although I'm having inordinate problems with "virtual Box" and Vmware server. In Vbox the kernel module won't start.
OpenSUSE 11.4 install from DVD with default options. (KDE Desktop, selected language and keyboard is German)
When installing from the 32bit media KDE is always English afterwards but when installing from the 64bit media I will have a german KDE as expected. Changing country & language & preferred language on the 32bit does not help - still in English.
I'm new to here and to linux, having changed over about 2 weeks ago. I've had a lot of trouble installing a variety of software and am really starting to despair and regret changing over. Right way to go about things for the installation processes of any of the following software on opensuse11.4 64-bit (I have tried everything I can to no avail): Canon ip2700 series drivers Creative Sound Blaster X-fi drivers Skype iTunes
I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 64bit on a new Dell Latitude E6410 notebook. This is the Intel i7 processor with 8 Gb of RAM and Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. I can boot from my 64bit installer DVD, but once I choose either Live version, to test it out, or just go for Install, after the first selection screen where I can change the default video at the bottom, I just get a black screen, no video.
I can't find any info on installing Suse on this notebook, (I think its only be available for a couple of weeks now). What do I do to get the screen to show me the graphical installer, Or how do I make the KDE Live version run from the 64bit DVD. I also tried the 32bit version DVD, but it wouldn't give graphics either, so it seems like an X issue.
installed the latest version of R ( R.2.11.1) in my machine and I can run that by simply typing "R" in terminal but I need to install the old version of R ( R.2.9.2) since some packages don't support the new version. I have the .tar.gz file of old version. How can I install that? How do I run in terminal ?
