OpenSUSE Install :: Disable Cpus... Maxcpus=1 Nosmp Causes Boot To Fail

Nov 9, 2010

I have a OpenSuse Linux system that needs to use only one core of its four core processor. I tried putting this in the menu.lst file.

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title openSUSE 10.3

Am I placing the nosmp and maxcpus options in the proper location?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Boot Fail After Install ATI Driver 10.8?

Sep 4, 2010

So ... right now I'm having an issue after I installed ATI Catalyst 10.8 for my GPU HD 5770.Every time I try to boot, it sends me to init3 (I mean text screen). But when I check and try to switch to init5, it tells me that I'm on init5 already.And I'm still stuck on the text screen. However, safemode is still working (yeah I'm on it right now - -").

I installed ATI driver by using this instuction --- openSUSE Lizards � ATI HD57xxx fglrx drivers under 11.3

OpenSUSE Install :: Services Fail At Boot - Save To Turn Them Off?

Jun 2, 2011

during boot-up on my desktop, running openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.6.3, there are sometimes (not always) some failed services. Most of the time it is postfix and some other service. Today it is just mcelog. So when I switch to the first terminal by strg+alt+F1, I see that mcelog has failed.The system is running anyway, so I wonder if it is safe to turn them off? I would turn off postfix and mcelog. Do I harm the system with that? Would it boot again, after I have turned them off? Or is it recommended to let them stay as they are?As far as I understood, postfix is just a mailserver, which would be used, if I would run a mailserver on my own. But I dont. I just read mails, via IMAP... But mcelog? Whats that?

OpenSUSE Install :: Fail Safe Mode The System Begins To Boot But Freezes And Will Do Nothing More

Jul 6, 2010

A little while ago i bought a magazine with the openSUSE 11.1 distro on it but couldn't install it so i gave up. I am attempting to have another go. The problem is that the os will work fine when booted from CD in fail safe mode and can be installed from there but when out of fail safe mode the system begins to boot but freezes and will do nothing more.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Boot Fail After Install "Error Loading Operating System"?

Jul 13, 2011

I have installed openSuSE 11.4 32-bit on my PC. Installation went okay, but when I shut down the system and started later it does not load.

My computers have;
- Intel Pentium Dual Core processors
- Asus motherboards
- Onboard VGA, Sound, NW

What happens is, the first screen appear (where it instructs to press DEL to go to BIOS), then the system hangs us displaying "Error Loading Operating System". There nothing works, except the CTRL+ALT+DEL. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, same cycle repeats.

OpenSUSE Install :: Disable Win 7 Dual Boot And Do A Fresh Install?

Apr 16, 2011

I have been trying to install openSUSE 11.4 on a Windows 7 laptop, but the suggested partitioning sucks and I lack the skills to do it manually. I would like to format the laptop drive, give up Windows for good and do a fresh install of openSUSE 11.4. openSUSE wants me to keep Windows boot. But I do not want it!

I have tried for an hour now. Can't format, there is no options for that in the openSUSE 11.4 install. There are expert options, but I really do not know how many partitions does openSUSE require. For some strange reason openSUSE wants to keep my Windows partitions. WHY? And if I delete all of the partitions, it wont automatically recreate the needed partitions for openSUSE, it only displays errors and won't let me continue.

For the love of God, do I have to open the laptop, remove the hard drive, put it in another computer and format there?

Why isn't there an option for removing all partitions, formatting the drive and installing openSUSE?

How to disable the forced Win 7 dual boot openSUSE offers and do a fresh install with only openSUSE 11.4 WITHOUT ANY WINDOWS DUAL BOOT BS.

By the way, since my laptops internal DVD is broken and I will not repair it until my daughter is old enough to handle optical drives, I use USB DVD and it won't give me any boot options but starts installation right away. This is also strange.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Updates Fail (Repo Not Available)

May 21, 2011

The repository [URL] is not currently (or no longer) valid. The path still exists up to the "Contrib" level, however, there are no files or subdirectories under it. There are also two siblings at the "Contrib" directory level ("Live" and "Update:") and there are no files under them either other than a single subdirectory called "Test" under "Update:". Does anyone know if the updates that used to be available in this repository have moved and, if so, where to? If the repository is no longer required and there is no replacement, I'll simply remove it. I have also noticed issues for several months where the updater applet will go into an "updating" state and never return from it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Distros Fail To Install Or Boot / Freeze And Permanent Black Screen?

May 11, 2011

I tried out many distros on my desktop before experimenting with my oshiba Satellite A665 laptop with integrated intel graphics. Everything worked out as normal until I was testing Ubuntu on a live cd, I clicked install and it sent me back to the login screen before I had made an account. So I then chose to restart and it started glitching so I had to manually power off. Ever since then whichever distros I try to install, they face numerous errors. On Ubuntu and Peppermint they freeze on the 5 dots installation part and Linux Mint just has a permanent black screen. Even the current Peppermint OS (only distro i have)hangs on the 5 dots when trying to boot onto the computer. This has resulted me in a computer that cant do anything, i've tried the noquiet and nosplash options but they don't seem to work. I was thinking of installing Windows and maybe erasing the disk by installing another distro later?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA Proprietary Install - 195.36.08 - Fail ?

Mar 3, 2010

I tried installing the latest NVidia proprietary drivers, but it was epic fail.

OpenSUSE 11.2

It fails with an "unable to compile kernel module" error.

I stupidly overwrote the log file without backing it up. It had a lot of compile warnings, but I didn't see anything that looked like a compile error. I'll try to generate it again.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Installation Fail At 90% (step Font Initialization)

Jul 28, 2010

I am installing from the scratch a 11.3 on a PC on which previously 11.1 did run flawlessly. (Athlon 3700 with 3GB ram and Asrock socket 939 mainboard. Graphics is Nvidia. The installation comes every time up to 90% when it arrives at "font initialization). No error message is displayed. The little "cursor wheel" is still turning but else, there is no activity.

DVD from an sha1 checked and MD5 doublechecked download was burned with lowest speed in K3b and verified by the same program post burn, with full success of every verification.
Tried to change DVD reader but does not change the result. Runs speedy up to that step.

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome3 - NVidia Drivers - Multiple Monitor Fail ?

Jul 24, 2011

I have installed openSUSE with Gnome3.

I had to install the nVidia proprietary drives so the OS would boot into Gnome3 and not fail safe mode. Without the proprietary drivers installed the display settings said:

Driver: software rasterizer in use

After installing the nVidia drivers Gnome3 works in one monitor, but I would like to be able to use my other two monitors (totaling three with two video cards.)

When I run nvidia-settings to generate an xorg.conf file it hangs, so I used nvidia-xorgconf to generate the xorg file and then used nvidia-settings to configure my extra screens.

This fails with a permissions error, running sudo nvidia-settings fails with the following error:


So, I ran nvidia-settings, saved the settings file to my /home/$USER dir, then copied xorg.conf to /etc/X11/

Logging out and logging back into Gnome fails with the error:

This problem extends to Ubuntu running Gnome3, so my thinking is:
a) Imma id10t and something in my xorg.conf file is wrong,
b) there is an issue with Gnome3/nVidia/Multiple displays.

I would really like to use Gnome3, it works on multiple other machines (ironically all ATI devices) just not the machine I use all day long...

Here is my xorg.conf file as generated by nvidia-settings.

Yesterday I applied the su security patch to my openSuSE 11.2 x86_64 system.After applying the patch, any attempt at su failed, and after rebooting the system earlier this morning any login (root, user, otherwise) fails with a "Permission Denied".Is it possible that the su update somehow messed up my (standard) pam settings?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Disable Drive Write Cache At Boot With Hdparm?

Jul 16, 2010

I'm testing OpenSUSE 11.3 on a server and I'd like to disable the write cache on all of my drives. In Ubuntu Server I was able to accomplish this with hdparm by adding the appropriate settings to /etc/hdparm.conf

As far as I can find the only thing that OpenSUSE offers is /etc/sysconfig/ide which allows you to force particular DMA modes. I could just put the hdparm commands in /etc/init.d/boot.local but I'd prefer to do it the right way if there is a right way to do this in OpenSUSE.

OpenSUSE Install :: Any Way To Disable SU And Only Use Sudo

Aug 12, 2010

I am wondering what the easiest way for me to disable su and perform all root stuff using sudo, the way Ubuntu works. I am using a shared system, openSUSE 11.3, and notice that the only item that gets logged in su is who su'd. I need more information and sudo + command gets logged to /var/log/messages so I can see who did what and when. How can I get openSUSE 11.3 to work similiar to Ubuntu when it comes to running elevated commands or editing files that a normal user doesn't have rights to?
