OpenSUSE Install :: KDE3 Disappeared From Graphical Login Selection (OS11.0)?

Feb 21, 2010

I used KDE3 with 11.0 with some KDE4 apps till I needed some applications from the KDE4 factory tree and mistakenly left the repository active. Next time the online update also updated most of the applications I would rather keep, and as a result the KDE3 disappeared from the KDM login choices. So I have two questions:1. how to enable users to select KDE3 at login (currently I have to select failsafe mode and run startkde manually)2. how to replay back an update I didn't want to have?

Perhaps a combination of the above: can I upgrade to OS11.2 and keep KDE3? (please don't tell me to switch to KDE4, I acknowledge and appreciate the effort and the improvements that KDE4 got, but it's still not a replacement for KDE3 - there are so many simple things which are impossible in the new version)

OpenSUSE Install :: Kdm Remote Graphical Login Not Working?

Feb 5, 2011

I had an old SuSE installation (v9 or 10, I forget) on which I used to remotely login to a kde session using xdmcp. I blew this away and installed 11.3, and I just can't get it to work. I'm pretty sure I've enabled all the things I should have. there a bug?(Incidentally, I had the same problem with Ubuntu 10.10 (with Gnome), and eventually found I needed an updated version of gdm. With X tunneled through a PuTTy ssh session I can display individual X windows no probs. Also, a VNC session is rejected out of hand.)

OpenSUSE Install :: GDM: Users Disappeared From Login Box

Jan 13, 2011

Last week my parents' PC conked out the day before I was due to leave the country, so in the few hours I had to try and knock up a solution, I set up a very old second machine in the house running openSUSE 11.3 with XFCE. I'd previously replaced the default login display manager with GDM, which evidently has various bugs. Aside from the cursor continually spinning around showing as busy, when I added a new user account for my parents, the login box showed two entries under my own name. It's only on hovering the mouse over the latter entry that my parents' username shows up. Anyway, I had to explain this and a million other quirks to them in a rush, but the system was all working and they managed to get me an email from it the following day.

Since then, however, when they reach the login screen they say there is just an image of a computer monitor, with the OS version and domain, but no usernames to choose from or other options anywhere, and hence they can find no way to login. I have no remote access to the machine and can only talk over the phone. I suggested a few key combos to see if anything happened, and they booted once in failsafe mode, but no luck.

What could have happened? Is there a key that would show the users again? Perhaps there's a way to get to a console login, but could they get back to a GUI easily after that? Unfortunately my parents are really not adept at these things and every instruction I give has to be repeated endlessly after which they usually get it wrong a couple of times first, so trying to do anything administrative or more clever than a few key presses or mouse clicks is going to be nigh on impossible. Running a live CD would be likely out of the question since they'd need to change the BIOS boot order first.

OpenSUSE Install :: Graphical Login Not Implemented In Build Live Cd?

Aug 17, 2010

I am now at my 6th version of my opensuse build and I can't get it to start the graphical login.I am trying my build out on a VirtualBox using the live cd.This is what happens during installation :It will install properly. No error messages at all. I get the (graphical) options screen to select language and screen resolution settings, so far so good.I select the default (top) installation for my opensuse and hit enter.Then I will get the verbose progress and when it's finished, the verbose will ask me for my user name and password.Then I enter those correctly and the verbose will tell me to enjoy.I am then left with a blinking cursor, and don't know what to do next.

This is not what should have happened since in my build I had selected Configuration > Startup > Default runlevel > 5: Graphical loginI can find no reason for this failure since on my Windows system I have tried out several other Linux systems in the same way and never experienced this problem before.During the assembling of my packages I have payed close attention to select all packages required for a graphical login.An other problem is that although I selected the default language for my build to be Dutch, the default language during setup is still English.I hope there is someone who would be kind enough to be prepared to help me out, I am so eager to start trying out my self made OS.

OpenSUSE :: Trashed VMWare Install - Want To Reinstall (OS11.2 X64)

Jun 9, 2010

I am running OpenSuSE 11.2 64bit which was upgraded from 11.1. When I moved to OS 11.2, I found out the hard way about VMWare not working. Then tried to remove it and fix it myself.

When I try to run the config script...
Code:
parents:~ # vmware-config.pl
Unable to find the answer LIBDIR in the installer database
(/etc/vmware/locations). You may want to re-install VMware Server.
Execution aborted.
parents:~ #

When I try to install vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm -i VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed

When I try to upgrade vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm -U VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed

When I try to force install vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm --force VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced

Other than rebuilding my box, how can I recover from this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Install OS11.2?

Mar 1, 2010

I downloaded the latest stable release from the opensuse download site and when I try to install it, it fails. Basically, the installation reaches 50% and then I get a message : Failed copying image file to hard disk. The hard disk on my PC is 18GB and the installer suggests 10.7 GB for /home and 7.2 GB for /root. I read somewhere that /root needs to be allocated a min of 10 GB, but the installer does not let me change the size /root to more that 7.2 GB. how can I go about installing it?

Toshiba notebook is set up to triple boot win7, mepis 8.5 and os 11.3.Recent update of os11.3 left system with boot failure, "file not found".I booted mepis and used utility to reinstall grub, but no joy.

OpenSUSE Install :: Messed Up Booting Selection?

Mar 16, 2010

Seems I have messed up something.I can boot into openSUSE and into Vista, so it is not screwed.I have 1 hard diskI have an OEM Vista (so a 9 GB EISA rescue partition), the Vista partition (~100GB) and the 3 partitions for openSUSE (2/20/467).Before just wiping the linux partitions I tried to switch back to M$ booting but failed. ATM I boot to splash screen showing 3 entries: 2 openSUSE and 1 windows.When I choose Windows I get to the next screen showing Windows and - ubuntu (I had ubuntu via wubi before but wasn't convinced, so (w)ubuntu does not exist anymore).I thought installing openSUSE will fix the issue that ubuntu shows up on M$ booting screen but ofc I was wrong.I didn't want to wipe the still unused openSUSE partitions before being successfull so instead I tried:

- booting into M$ rescue CL: bootrec /fixmbr does not give an error but bootrec /fixboot or /rebuildbcd - automatic system repair does not show any partition, fixboot /scanos finds C:
- using bcdedit and EasyBCD (fail)

OpenSUSE Install :: Window Manager Selection And NIS?

Mar 4, 2011

I am trying to integrate two new machines into an old network running NFS and NIS. One machine has 11.4 and the other 11.3. On the 11.4 machine login, I select "other" and before entering my password I can select my desired window manager from the "sessions" list in the task bar. On the 11.3 machine I select "other", but nothing appears in the task bar. The "sessions" list briefly flashes up after I have already entered by password and hit enter. This machine always starts up in KDE even though I have specified GNOME as the default display manager.Also, on either machine after validating my login, I never appear as a user in the login list. I always have to select "other". Other network users in the same group or users local to the machine do not have either problem. I tried wiping my home directory, but it makes no difference. I'm guessing this has something to do with the NIS but there is no admin here anymore

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Login To IMac G4 - Graphical Login?

Sep 30, 2015

I have an iMac G4 that I installed Jessie on successfully. However, when it boots, one of the last messages is:

[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

Last line is something along the lines of:

fb: switching to nouveaufb from OFfb NVDA,NVMac

And then the text starts dissolving, and the entire screen cycles through different colors. I presume it is sitting at the graphical login prompt but it's not displaying correctly.

Based on some Google searches, it seems like I should be able to resolve this by editing /etc/modules but I can't get to that point. I have tried to get to a terminal using ctrl-alt-F1 through ctrl-alt-F12. No luck. I tried different yaboot options that were supposed to avoid using the video driver. No luck. How do I get the machine to boot straight to a regular text login instead of the X one?

This machine worked fine running Mac OS X this morning, so I don't think it's the hardware. What I can do.

Software :: Switch To Text Login While At Graphical Login Screen?

Jul 21, 2011

I am trying to load up the NVidia driver in Fedora 15 and am stuck. After boot up the graphical login screen comes up fine but when I go to log in I get an error message and it asks me to try to login again. I need to be able to get into text mode so I can edit some files but I do not know how to do this other that starting in multi-uder mode by editing /etc/inittab (or in FC15, editing some links in /etc/systemd/system/). Is there a way to get to text mode from the graphical loginscreen or do I need to get a rescue disk and startup in rescue mode to change files?

Ubuntu Security :: Bad Login Protocols - Graphical Login For Gnome Sizes Itself To Accommodate A User's Exact Password Length

Dec 14, 2010

I'm seeing really bad user login format under a standard installation and am wondering why ubuntu does this as default. I have noticed that the graphical login for gnome sizes itself to accommodate a user's exact password length. This indicates to me that somewhere on the unencrypted part of a standard installation with user encryption contains at least some indication of the content of the password length which seems a security flaw even if not a complete hole, it majorly reduces the number of attempts a cracker would have to cycle through.

And that's assuming that *only* the length is contained. Furthermore it seems that it would be MUCH better to simply display the number of characters entered into the pw field and allowing the gui to expand itself from an fixed size as the field is filled out so the the user still receives visual feedback for entering characters. Either a simple character count display should be entered into the field or a 10 dot to new line so that one can visually quickly count the number enter by multiplying from a 10base graphical observation.

OpenSUSE :: Use 'make' Command Gnome On OS11.3?

Oct 21, 2010

At the moment 'make' returns this:

Code:
./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
Makefile.inc:81: *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.

I would do a little more homework, but I already did a lot only to get stuck here, and I need to solve this sooner rather than later.

I have already: installed devel and desktop-devel and given up about 350mb of diskspace to

Code:
zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++

Only to still not have the make function available.
If that install was unecessary, I'm hoping there's a simple uninstall version of that line.

Reading what it's saying, it sounds like I may have all the right kit but it needs a nudge in the direction of the kernel??

OpenSUSE :: OS11.2/KDE 4.4: Akonadi Control Center Missing

I recently upgraded my SuSE 11.2 to KDE4.4 from "download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/". Most things run fine, however the "Akonadi Control Center" does not appear in my KDE "System Settings". Akonadi itself seems to run, at least Contact uses it for the addresses.

I searched for all "akonadi" packages, but I didn't find ones which I do not have installed.

OpenSUSE :: OS11.3 - Get Banshee / Rhythombox To Play M4a - Aac Or Similar?

Aug 2, 2010

Has anyone succeeded in coercing either banshee or rhythmbox to play "restricted" media? On my 11.3 install, I have all the packages from the "one-click" install that takes 49 clicks to find on the new wiki structure ... Playback works correctly in mplayer, gnome-mplayer, and smplayer. VLC works also, ... yawn ....

This is the third consecutive release [COLOR="rgb(0, 0, 0)"](AT BEST)[/COLOR] where this stuff is badly broken! By badly broken, I mean that installing all the needed software and codecs does not appear to be the only requirement. I was able to get it working in 11.1 and 11.2, but only via a hit and miss series of un-install the packages, reinstall one by one ... making offerings of fatty sheep ... reinstalling again .... performing the second part of the ring cycle for the neighbours cat ... remove the codecs again .... install again ... wow ... it's working ... set the entire system to ro ... sing for the cat again!

Does anyone have any insight as to why gstreamer is SOOOOOOO foobared in OpenSUSE? Can anyone articulate a series of steps that will actually get the desired result? BTW, getting this stuff working in FC13 is trivial. Add the fusion repo and install the codecs! I remember a better day in SuSE land when one added the packman repo and installed the codecs ...

OpenSUSE Wireless :: OS11.2 Installed But WLAN (Atheros5212)?

Jan 15, 2010

After been convinced by an exchange student from Nashville I am hosting here in Germany I went into openSuse 11.2. I installed and got openSuse 11.2 to work. I must admit, that I was very impressed. It is more than 10 years that I tried a UNIX system and Linux was quite a cryptic thing. First some additional drivers had to be installed to get MP3 to play. However Internet access was possible with cable but the system failed in recognizing the WLAN.

Here is my system:
HP Compaq nc4000
OpenSuse 11.2 (i586)
KDE 4.3.1 "release 6"
Wireless Network
Atheros AR5212

I have looked through some posts but must admit, that I did not understand much of that. I Am willing to learn, however I do not see myself compiling some drivers. If you could tell me which URL could be used for dloading or installing via Yest, If more sophisticated solutions, than I will have to ask my student to do it for me, but he should learn German and learn more about German lifestile in German Bars.

Ubuntu :: Can't Login - Can't Get Past Name Selection

I can't seem to login into ubuntu this morning. I'm using 11.04 64 bit. It's been working fine for a few weeks, but this morning I select my name with the mouse and it just returns to the same initial screen after a millisecond. The password box does not come up.

The last thing I did yesterday was add another user - would that have caused any issues (or a red herring)?

I went to a terminal and deleted that user (sudo userdel -r <username>) but that hasn't helped.

Had some problems with sound, which I could fix via the KDE multimedia "phonon".
