OpenSUSE Install :: Booting From DVD Freezes Before Reaching Installation Menu?

Jul 31, 2011

I have two Lenovo laptops: One is a T410 now running on openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4. I got my wireless, keyboard languages/layouts, upgraded firefox... The other, a V570, is currently running Ubuntu 11.4 and I'd like to install openSUSE 11.4 on it.

Here is what I did. Downloaded openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso from Download openSUSE 11.4 (Direct link). md5 checksum is good (compared to checksum posted by caf4926). Burned to DVD using Brasero. Installed openSUSE on the T410 (did the media check first from the installation menu - it was ok). Install went well and system is running fine. I'm happy with it

This is the problem I'm having; tried it about 10 times now and every time it's the same. Using the same DVD, trying to install openSUSE 11.4 on the V570 machine; after turning on, it boots from the DVD and I get the following 3 lines and then the cursor just sits at the fourth and does not continue

ELILO boot: ..........
Loading kernel linux... done
Loading file initrd...done

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting/Installation Error (noob?) System Repair #?

Apr 15, 2010

Im probally just being a noob here but for the projects sake I thought it would be good to identify this problem. I have an old advent laptop and I tried to install Opensuse from DVD on it. I followed the installation as normal but when I tried to boot it said some sort of check was forced and then I have to enter the admin/root password upon doing this I got the message system repair # in red. I have tried to repair the system through the installation DVD and tried re-installing it but I still get the same message.

Ubuntu Installation :: Set A Default Boot OS When Dual-Booting W7/Linux?

May 23, 2011

I am thinking about installing Ubuntu dualboot with Windows 7. However, I feel that it'd be a pain to select Windows 7 constantly as it is my main OS for work and school. Ubuntu would be for offtime tinkering and as such probably booted once or twice a week at most. I intend to use the system to use the OS not to use it for serious work. Before I install would it be possible to install it in Dualboot while maintaining the ability to boot W7 by default unless pressing a special key to come to the Grub bootloader or something like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: No GUI In Live Environment?

Aug 29, 2010

I'm working on making a system in suse studio, but I can't get into the GUI through normal means (as in using the live DVD) because it gives me a console. When i type "startx" i get an error based on signal 11 (or something)

I type kdm, and nothing happens. What should I do?

(p.s, this is with the USB raw image "burned" on. The DVD needs me to use no APIC)

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Set Up A Chroot Environment

Aug 25, 2011

I`m running openSUSE Tumbleweed so the first question is: can i run ONLY another openSUSE OS inside the environment ? or can i run any distro i want ?

My second question is how do it set up the environment to act just like my normal OS, with both root and user rights on it? and of course can i run X ?

And finally third question: after googling a bit i did not found a tutorial for openSUSE but i have seen that is says that i have mount and/or bind certain things, how do i make the same thing under openSUSE for the respective chroot environment?

OpenSUSE :: How To Install Alternate Desktop Environment

Feb 25, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 installed with KDE4 and what is the proper way to install another desktop/window manager. Installing fluxbox is straight forward with zypper install fluxbox what about gnome and lxde? How will the default application be affected e.g. when I login into KDE, video is defaulted to smplayer If gnome/lxde is installed will the default app change with the desktop environment or will one app be defaulted to all desktop environment?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10, Takes 30-45 Minutes For Installation/Live Environment To Load. Install Slow?

Apr 27, 2011

Being a former user of Fedora, i decided I'd like to give Ubuntu a try and install so i could switch from a windows environment for ruby on rails development.I downloaded the 10.10 ISO and burned the image to a DVD-RW (a cheap one) at 4xI'm deployed in afghanistan right now, and the only decent internet connection i have is in my office (i work in the network administration/operations office as a NETOPS NCO) and even then my downloads rarely exceed 50kbps. I also don't really have the best pick when it comes to writable media, i'm stuck with imation "plus" cd-r's and dvd-rw's.

After i burned the image to disc, i deleted the iso from my computer since i'm genereally not suppossed to keep personal files on work computers.When i boot to the disc it takes about 45 minutes on average to load into the live environment to do the install or try ubuntu, if i select try ubuntu it's another 10 minutes before it's done loading.The install is even slower, generally takes several hours to complete the install, once the install is complete and i select ubuntu in grub, i get a { DRDY ERR } ru When it tries to load ubuntu and kicks me back into the shell. Nothing appears to be wrong with my hard drive, checkdisk finds nothing.

General specs are:Intel Core i7 i7-720QM / 1.6 GHz 8GB DDR3 1333mhz ram2x 500gb hd'sBlu-ray/dvd/cd driveFull specs are at: the laptop is a g73jh-a1'm downloading the iso again and i'm going to try and burn it to a cd-r at the slowest possible speed, I'm mainly curious if it could be fualt of the disc i burned or if it has something to do with my computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: Set System-Wise Environment Variables ?

Sep 9, 2010

I just recently reinstalled openSUSE 11.3 last night with the GNOME desktop. Since I'm starting fresh again, I'd like to set up my System as flawless as possible.

So, my question is stated in the Title. How do you set System-Wide environment variables on OpenSUSE 11.3 // GNOME? I usually set them by adding an export to my ~/.bashrc, but I remember in Ubuntu that I could add them to /etc/environment. I checked that file out on my system, and it has a the default comment on it stating:

"This file is parsed by pam_env module...Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on seperate lines"

This seems to be the spot to add my "export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/..etc", etc. but I wanted to clarify before I went ahead and made any changes.

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting No Sound From Speakers / Sort It?

Oct 4, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Distro That Uses ROX As The Default Environment?

I am curious if anyone has played around with this desktop environment? I would love to see a Linux distro use this as default. I think one thing Mac does well is self contained apps. Has anyone been able to get ROX to work on Ubuntu? Does anyone know of a distro that uses ROX as the default environment?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install X11 As The Desktop Environment

Feb 8, 2010

I recently had to get a new PC, I am left with one that while it doesn't do what I needed to, still works just fine so I would like to turn it into a barebones file server. I could do this under Windows, I have an old copy of W2K server install I got from my networking class... but I'd rather do it via Ubuntu.I know there are automated install options but I can't figure out how to make use of them. All I need to have it do, is on install:Install X11 as the desktop environment (lightweight, resource friendly).Install VNC to allow me to remotely administer the server and fine-tune any configurations Setup up the NIC so I can obviously network it.

If there's a way to strip off the extra programs (ie: games, office software, graphics editors, etc), that'd be fine. I'm unsure if I want to do any media streaming (specifically of music, unsure if the onboard graphics is suited to video)I don't have a spare monitor to hook this up with, and I want to stash this machine in an out-of-the way place where it won't be noticed.Can anyone help me or point out an 'idiot's guide to automated installing Ubuntu' by any chance?

Ubuntu :: Booting Into Live Environment Screen Is Extremely Dark?

Apr 18, 2011

I have a Gateway NV59C09u laptop, I tried running both maverick and the latest beta of natty as live usb's to no avail. It boots fine, but at the first screen the light is so dark that I can't really read anything nor see the mouse pointer, I can just barely make out a window-looking thing. Trying to increase the brightness using my F-keys doesn't do anything.

It's gotta be some kind of graphics related issue, because booting the alternate iso works fine. If I could figure out a way to boot the ubuntu-desktop live image via a different video driver that would probably work, but I'm not sure how to do that (ctrl+alt+f1 does nothing).

Ubuntu :: Put An Environment Variable Back To Its Default?

Mar 2, 2010

I am happy to say that after almost a week of wandering around the INTERNET and posting desperate questions to our Ubuntu forums on how to set paths etc., I have finally begun to understand just how environment variables and path setting works. I must say, it wasn't all reading this or that, but rather making changes to my paths that helped me to understand. Anyway, if anyone who does not understand environment variables is reading this, then I recommend reading this

HTML Code:
and this
HTML Code:

OK- I have 1 last question for my fellow linux users. Lets say I opened up $HOME /.profile and did some editing, and later decided to undo all of my changes but I forgot exactly what changes I made so now I want to set the default in there. How would I accomplish this? How do I set the defaults for any ~/.bashrc or ~/.cshrc type of files that I change.
