OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Edit Back File

Dec 23, 2010

I've got myself in a bit of a pickle.I've got 1 hard disk drive and was trying to load a second external drive.I tried to mount the 2nd (external) drive by editing /boot/ grub/ but I must have made an error, because now it boots directly into sda1 openSUSE 11.1 and when I try to look at SDA2/SDA3 it say's Invalid System Type. Presumably because they're formatted with Ext4. So I can't edit back my file.What I want to do is boot into SDA3 OpenSUSE 11.3. Would anybody know why it's only booting to SDA1 and/or have any suggestions to get me back booting to SDA3? This may be a 2 step process, because I may have to boot to SDA2 first so I can edit back my /boot/grub/ on SDA3 before finally booting to SDA3.

OpenSUSE Install :: When Edit My User-name And Password The System Said That Login Is Incorrect

Oct 16, 2010

Today I have installed Linux SUSE 11.2 . At installation, I was asked for user-name and password. I edit this correctly.

At the end of the installation, the system reboots until the mask 'user name' and 'password' will be displayed. When I edit my user-name and the password the system said, that the login is not correct.

First, I think, I have forgetten my password an do a new installation of Linus SUSE 11.2 . Whatever, the same problem ist still there.

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Password User That Is Not Logged In?

Apr 15, 2010

I'm looking for a user-friendly way to change the password of a user that is *not* currently logged into the machine. We have a machine that is used by a number of users with a low level of tech savvy. The machine gets logged in as a generic user which works for most purposes, but due to a management requirement, we need Firefox to be run under an account set up for the individual user. I've gotten that bit to work fine, but what I can't figure out is a friendly (GUI) way to allow users to change their own password while the machine is logged in as the generic user. I would like to use gnome-passwd, but I've been unable to figure out how to get it to run for a user other than the logged-in generic user.

OpenSUSE :: Change Gnome Desktop Icons Back To Previous Settings?

Jan 15, 2011

I have recently played around with Mac4lin a program to change the interface to one that resembles a Mac computer. I did not like the settings then decided to uninstall the program. It reverted to a really ugly looking gnome desktop rather than my previous settings. One thing that I don't like is that I have a foot icon on my gnome traditional menu button on the panel rather than the green ball type icon I used to have. I know it's not the end of the world that my icons do not look like it previously did, everything else is running smoothly, though I'm just more annoyed than anything else.

Ubuntu :: Delete The Previous Partition But It Kept Coming Back

Nov 28, 2010

I recently installed 10.10 netbook remix on my Samsung N150 netbook alongside Windows 7 Starter. At the time of the first installation one of the forward buttons wasn't showing up so I was stuck and had to reboot and restart the installation. This happened after I had made the partition for Ubuntu so when I got back to that stage in installation there was already a partition made. I tried to delete the previous partition but it kept coming back so I made another partition for Ubuntu and installed it.

It was working fine apart from a problem with the right-click and dragging icons. Then I updated the grub and after restarting the machine my grub disappeared and I was left with a black screen with a blinking cursor. I reinstalled Ubuntu again using my external HD with new partitions (the same thing happened where the partitions kept coming back after trying to delete). Now my Windows won't load up and just goes straight to recovery. After I restored it the grub disappeared again.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Username And Home Directory?

May 27, 2010

People usually suggest workarounds to do this, as it's not possible with usermod while the user is logged in. Did I overlook anything or is this method not preferable over creating a new account, setting the user permissions, then moving the files and messing with the file permissions? Using the right tool for the job would seem to be less error-prone to me. 1. Activate the root account by setting a password.

sudo passwd
2. Log out and log into the root account.
3. Change the username and home directory from user1 to user2. This will also move the files to the new home directory and rename the group to user2.
usermod -l user2 -d /home/user2 -m user1

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Changing Permissions From Root To User

Jun 6, 2010

I recently got a new external drive and backed all my files up on the new external: movies, music, docs, etc. Now all my files have permission rights to the root only. I was able to change this by open up nautilis from a terminal in root and change the permission on the whole drive to my current user so I can access the files, copy & delete the files. I wanted to change some music file information in Kynamo this morning and was not able to since all the individual files still belong to the root. How can I change this permission issue without having to change each individual file?

Ubuntu :: Changing Username - Password Not Working On Restart

Mar 23, 2010

I did these steps to change my username: I like to directly edit /etc/passwd and /etc/groups

First open a terminal, become root
sudo -i
usermod -d /home/new -m old
sed -i -e 's_old_new_g' /etc/passwd
sed -i -e 's_old_new_g' /etc/group<-
sed -i -e 's_old_new_g' /etc/shadow

My computer shut down after I did the second step and now my password isn't working! I cannot open my home folder or get back to root!

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Login Under An Username

Apr 25, 2010

Been using 11.2 for a couple of months now, mostly I've solved my own problems or read from some preexisting already solved problems on threads like these. But, I'm not even sure where to start with this one. I cannot login under my main username, the account is set to autologin, and I get the login screen instead. When I attempt to login I get a black screen for about a second then it bumps me back to the login screen, no error messages. I'm able to login under runlevel 3, but as soon as I try to "init 5" it bumps me out and back to the login screen.

Root account works fine, and I used it to create a secondary account from which I am posting from right now. The behavior started after the system put the display to sleep while I was watching a movie in VLC, I woke it up just as it turned completely black, it hung there and I was forced to hard reboot. Had the problem ever since (for several hours now, lol).

I use Gnome but I installed KDE to see if it would resolve my problem, but no dice.

Ubuntu Servers :: Restrict User Session Numbers And Allow Resuming Previous User Session?

Jun 30, 2010

I am currently in a project to set up an LTSP server with 10 thin clients. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic).

Installing server and booting clients are working fine. Now, according to the need, I have to restrict user session numbers and allow resuming previous user session.

I have achieved to do the first one, but still could not able to setup the second one. As per requirement, if some thin can have power failure, the same session should be restored back. I am confused here, if I need to focus on saving xsessions or saving gnome sessions. I am looking for a concrete solution as I am running out of time.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remove (not Hide) A Username From KDM?

Jun 2, 2010

I know how to go through KDE settings to "hide" a user from the login screen but I want to know where KDM is getting this info from. I've installed OpenSUSE 11.2 x64, configured it the way I like, and now I would like to clone it. Problem is that I logged into my own account while testing FreeNX and now my username shows up on the login screen. I want to remove any information that I logged into this system with an account other than root. I've Googled many times and still have no idea. I currently have two local users, root and user. The rest of my users authenticate and login via LDAP. The name of my LDAP user account is now always displayed on the KDM login screen. I don't want to disable the user list either, I just want to remove my account from the list before I clone the machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Order On Login Screen In 11.2?

Dec 2, 2009

I just moved from openSUSE 11.0 to 11.2.

While I like to new login screen (I was using a face based theme previously), I am stumped on how to control the order that the user names are presented.

As best I can tell, they are presented in the order who logs in most frequently. While that makes a certain amount of sense, I would like to be able to force the list to remain alphabetical.

Is there any way to control this, and if so, where?

OpenSUSE Install :: Pam_ldap Username Case Sensitivity On 11.2

Sep 8, 2010

It seems pam_ldap in 11.2 is not case insensitive anymore when it comes to checking usernames with uid from ldap.It is working fine on 11.1 though (both systems with latest updates up to now)(I didn't try 11.3 yet)On our ldap server (which is out of my control), the usernames are not unified, some are all in lowercase and some are capitalized, but on our Linux servers we have all usernames in lowercase.

Since our upgrade to 11.2, the users that their uid on ldap server does not match exactly to the username on Linux servers can not login anymore. Is there any option to change this behavior and force pam_ldap to be case-insensitive or convert uid/usernames to lowercase?
or all of a sudden pam_ldap decided to become case sensitive!?

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Pasword Required At Boot - Command For Startup?

I just burned the iso of openSUSe 11.4 onto a dvd, and I make it through all of the installation. At the end it reboots the computer and starts in the kernel/command line or whatever you call it. I think it's kernel. Anyway, it asks for my username and password and then it says like "have fun.." () or something and then just has like my directory or whatever waiting for commands. Is there some command to start up the OS?

Ubuntu :: Loads White Page Then Go Back To Section To Enter Username & Password

when booting up the system it promts for user and pass. After entering username and password followed by enter the system looks like its going to start. But no, it loads a white page for a couple of seconds and then go back to the section where you enter username & password. Why? the user and pass was correct. If i hit ctrl + alt +f1 and use the same username and password i can login with the CLI. But not in the graphical login prompt. How does such a problem gets fixed?
