OpenSUSE Install :: KDE On 11.4 - 32bit Always English 64bit In German As Expected
Mar 27, 2011
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 tried to install KDE 4.7 from the repositories. After a reboot KMail2 wanted to convert my emails..., resulting in no emails, no calendar, no addresses . The conversion didn't work. I reinstalled KDE 4.6.5 (stable 4.6 repository) and the emails were available , but my Kontact appeared in a mixture of german and english (also KMail2 in KDE4.7 was a mixture of german and english). Does somebody know, how to get german only menue (without some english relics)?
I have now a second post on the work I am doing. I am trying to complete a model for translating English texts into German. My concept is a model using a text editor with only simple executable scripts being written to perform steps in the process. I need to use a language for doing simple things like tagging words and translating using a dictionary I am building. I am beginning to use AWK in conjunction with Bash and need to find some members with whom I can dialog on particular topics; even getting advice. Are there any AWK users in the community, using the language for processing text?
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 really need the 32bit Libraries of wxWidgets. 32bit Packages for 64bit Linux normally called name_of_package-32bit i only know that it is in openSUSE. i cannot find libwx-32bit packages anywhere, the program i want to run is a 32bit only program, 64bit is impossible for this program and here you can find it PCSX2 Playstation 2 emulator - News
EDIT: only pre-compiled thinks please, compiling takes too long and 100% CPU usage
I try install F14 32 bit, f14 64 bit, f15 32 bit and Centos 5.5 and when it arrives at the end of the installation and reboot, my system no boot. I try install it on a Hardware RAID 1 --> 2 x 2TB. Motherboard Intel DH57DD, Core I5, 4 Gb DD3. (Windows 7 afeter install boot OK).
I don't come across as dumb but here it goes *L* I have 2, 2gig usb pendrives. I have Ubuntu on both of these drives 1 is Ubuntu 10.10 32bit the other is Ubuntu 10.10 64bit. When in the live environment can I tell which bit I am currently running. (Yeah I forgot to mark them) I don't want to install the 32bit on my 64bit computer (I know it would work but still) I really dont want to redo the usb's if it is at all possible.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 64bit, and I would like to run python 32bit.The current Python version used is the 64bit one.What can be some good ways for installing the python 32bit version without compromising the OS. I'm kind of new to this, so I don't really know if I could substitute the python version, or know how to make it available by using short commands such as python or easy_install.
The current libsasl package on 64bit Lucid is libsasl2-2 (2.1.23). However when I was installing Scalix, it needed 32bit libsasl2 which is 2.1.22 or something old. Although I can download 32bit libsasl2 package from web, it requires a lot of other libs and some of them are not available.So my question is: is it possible to install an old 32bit package on Lucid 64bit? Or are there other ways to solve the problem without installation of new packages?
environment: 2.6.9-89.ELlargesmp #1 SMP Mon Apr 20 10:43:12 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 8) I am trying to install a 32 bit package on a 64 bit install. I don't get an error, it just does not install. This is the command I am using:
I've been trying to compile a small program on my 64bit Centos 5.3 but I need to compile it in 32bit mode. I've tried editing the make file and changing CC=gcc to CC='gcc -m32" and that doesn't work. I have also tried to use "make CC='gcc -m32' and that doesn't work either. It wont compile. Do I need to install something with yum to get 32bit compiler to work?
I am trying to install the Linux version of Mathlab (32bit) into my openSUSE 11.1 (64bit). With STATA this was at the time possible, having installed the 32bit GTK. This is a program running Java. So since I have both 32bit and 64bit Java installed it should work, no? Copying files to /usr/local/temp as indicated OK Decompressing O.K.
Code: su - cd /usr/local/temp ./install
Executing ./install gives following error: An error status was returned by the program 'xsetup', the X Window System version of 'install'. The following messages were written to standard error: /usr/local/temp/update/install/main.sh: line 86: /usr/local/temp/update/bin/glnxa64/xsetup: No such file or directory
Attempt to fix the problem and try again. If X is not available or 'xsetup' cannot be made to work then try the terminal version of 'install' using the command: install* -t or INSTALL* -t
If I well understand in line 86 the script is calling the 64 bit version of the file gnlxa64 to call the 64 bit version of the program that is not available (as academic version). I tried then the command line version.
My new HP625 Laptop came with SLED11 preconfigured - including such special keys as the wireless/bluetooth key etc under gnome. I need a 64bit OS and 8Gb for my applications and the HP site does not offer any explicit support for 64bit Linux. So I installed SLED64bit on separate system partition and can select now 32 or 64 bit from GRUB. There remains the problem of configuring gnome (or KDE) on the 64bit system to take advantage of the keyboard, sound, cam etc. I did find a 64bit wireless driver in the i586-Repo on the HP-site that requires the kernel from opensuse 11.3 and I got bluetooth working with gnome but just for the keyboard alone, I am stuck with finding a decent configuration under 64bit. Is it possible to migrate the system wide gnome configuration from the SLED32 bit installation (as configured by HP) to any SuSEx86_64 system?
I'm having trouble understanding the principles behind OpenSuse package and repository management. Here is a concrete example: I want to install the 32bit version of glibc. (using zypper) Naturally I write 'wp glibc' to see what's available. Output:
I'm looking for the (32bit) tokyocabinet library. I go through all the hoops like I did in the first example. Nothing shows up! How is that possible? Does opensuse really not have this library in any repository? Does that mean I have to install from source? How can I be sure that zypper searches through all repositories?
I need to run a proprietary VPN client (Aventail) that can't use the openssl libraries that are packaged with 64bit F10:The Fedora openssl package does something differently from the original openssl.org package that makes it incompatible with Aventail (see bugzilla ticket 477073) I also believe the Aventail client software requires 32-bit libraries. So, I've determined I need to install 32bit openssl directly from openssl.org, then link my Aventail client to that. Note that I don't want to replace the 64bit openssl libraries currently on my system.
Based on the Bugzilla ticket, I believe I know how to hook up Aventail before I install it simply by supplying a few specific soft links if I can make/compile/whatever the 32bit openssl.org libraries and keep them in their own isolated directory. how to get the 32bit openssl libraries installed in a little corner by themselves on my 64bit system. give a step-by-step on on the commands necessary to place a 32bit version of openssl all by itself in a directory of my choosing?
I was previously running 10.04 32bit. Recently upgraded my cpu/ram, so figured I'd try 64 bit. On my previous setup, I had / in one partition, /home in another, plus a few other partitions (/backup, etc).
I did the install of 64 bit, but was too scared to point /home in 64bit to the previous /home. After the install, now all those previous partitions/mounts are on /media. I'd like to just point /home at the previous partition. Should I mess with /etc/fstab to do this or will it cause problems? Is the easiest thing to do reinstall, then point the new install to use the pre-existing /home? Wasn't sure if that would cause problems or not. I've backed up most of the previous /home area, so worst case, if it gets blown away, I should be alright.
I just installed OS 11.4 this morning. Was previously on CentOS. I chose to have it import the partition & raid setup during install. Now when it boots it hangs with
"Could not find /dev/disk/by-label //" "Want me to fall back to /dev/disk/by_id/ata-ST(lots of drive stuff) -part2 (Y/n)" If I just hit ENTER at that point the boot will go on and it runs fine, but it stalls every time with that same error on boot. I did quite a bit of searching with Google and here (the search here considers every word in the error message to be too short or too common).
I have a keyboard layout built in Korean language, and when i installed openSUSE 11.3 by network installation i keep keyboard layout to Korean. But after installation can't write Korean but still see Korean font in Firefox, cuz i added its font on firefox configuration settings. What shall i do? I want installed in English but still need to use Korean fonts to write something.
I am going to install a computer for multi-language support for English and the Korean Hangul written language. I would like to configure the input from the keyboard to switch from English to Korean. I have keyboard with English and Korean and I would like to configure one of the keyboard buttons to switch the input language similar to how Microsoft multi-language support works. What applications and configuration changes are necessary to implement this.
I just ordered my new laptop (DLL XPS15) and I'm wondering on whether install a 32 or 64 bit version, I don't know if there's really a big difference between each one of them, I've always used a 32 bit version.
