OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Not Found On Dual Boot System After Zypper Dup

Mar 14, 2011

I have a dual boot laptop with OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The boot loader used is Ubuntus Grub that came with the Ubuntu installation.

I have done a zypper dup and upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.4. When I reboot my system I can no longer boot into OpenSUSE, Grub says something about a missing kernel.

I think I understand whats wrong here; the OpenSUSE entry in Grubs table hasn't been updated with the changes brought in by the zypper dup (new kernel i guess).

I'm I correct to assume this? How do I fix the problem? Booting into Ubuntu I tried to find /boot/grub/menu.lst to examine it by I cannot find it. I know Ubuntu use a newer version of Grub, does it have a different file layout?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Kernel Found After Zypper Dup From 11.1 To 11.3 On Asus EEE PC 901?

Jul 19, 2010

uccessfully installing 11.3 M4 through GM on a test disk on my main machine, I upgraded the main disk on that machine with zypper dup from 11.2 to 11.3.As that went well, I decided to upgrade my netbook Asus EEE PC 901 from 11.1 tot 11.3 through zypper dup. While installation gave no errors, the system won't boot anymore, that is, grub loads and presents the boot menu, but doesn't find the kernel:

Code:
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34-12-pae root=/dev/diskby-id/ata-ASUS-PHISON_SSD_SOQ2780080-part1 spash=silent vga=315

OpenSUSE Install :: Error 15 - File Not Found After Update 11.3 On A Dual-boot PC With Ubuntu 9.10

Oct 22, 2010

Recently I've installed Open Suse 11.3 along with Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC ( made it a dual-boot OS ). This morning while logged in, in Open Suse 11.3, found out that there were important update for kernel in Yast. So, did the update and then required to restart the PC. In the Grub/boot menu, I chose to log-in to Open Suse 11.3, but after a while it returned with " Error 15, file not found ". Luckily I was able to log-in in Ubuntu 9.10. Assumed that Error 15 is always related to misplaced or wrong configuration of Grub in the partition, I did several searching via Google, and found this possible solution HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive . So I tried the " Broken Grub menu: boot to the menu, drop to a console and boot openSUSE direct " method. But rightly after the " find /boot/grub/menu.lst " command as instructed in the solution, it returned with ( hd0,0 ) and ( hd0,4 ). Why there are 2 bootloader in the Grub ? Which bootloader should I choose ? And for convenience, here is my " menu.lst " folder that I get via Terminal in Ubuntu 9.10 :

$ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),

OpenSUSE Install :: Zypper Up Renders System Unusable?

Jun 26, 2010

I have a problem after running zypper up. Apparantly somehow it upgraded to current factory release.. Problems so farNo networkNo x - session(after a quick hack i have x started but no input devices work)I think there is something wrong with udev and my xorg.confx first complained about InputDevice not being recognised.. I moved away my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and got a quick running session (without input devices, so icannot log on) but after a reboot it gives me a "black" screenWhile troubleshooting is encountered the problem that my network card is not recognised.. This all points in the direction of udev or whatever to be badly configured during upgrade..

OpenSUSE Install :: Adding More OS To Dual Boot System?

Jul 9, 2010

I wish to add more OS to my dual boot system with suse (sda) and windows7 (sda). The plan is to add Linux Mint(sda), PC BSD (sda), Fedora (sdb) and Solaris (sdb). I wish to remove grub2 from mint and install grub legacy, not sure whether it will work or not. I will be reinstalling grub from suse dvd. It gives me a free hand for adding boot entries. I wish to know whether I can remove grub2 and install grub legacy. In grub2 all boot related folders are stored in more than 1 place like /boot and /etc and subfolders.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dual Boot On A Mac - Can't Load The System

Mar 20, 2011

I'm trying to install OpenSUSE 11.4 (64bit with the server options included) on my Mac (Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz with 2 GB memory). So I have sda2 the OSX, sda1 swap, sda3 is the bootcamp (windows), sda4 (ext4) and sda5(ext5). I installed rEFIt 0.14 first, then I reboot with DVD on. The installation setup resized the Windows partition from Bootcamp, and create 3 other partitions (the sda1,4 and 5). At the installation I choos MBR enable and "/" as home enable.

At the end of the installation I have the error about MBR, that can't mount, or create the mount point? I'll double check the exact message. Anyway, when I try to load OpenSUSE, is not working: can not load the system. I tried to find on the installation menu a repair (I thought that I can find an utility to fix the MBR). I don't want to choose other distribution, because I used SuSE before, and I really like it, and of course this way I can learn more about troubleshooting a Linux installation on different environment

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Re-install Suse On A Dual Boot System

Oct 22, 2010

Gnome is falling apart and I've had a lot of nagging problems that I couldn't overcome.I'm thinking of wiping the OpenSuse partitions and doing a clean install without wiping the windows partition.I initially setup using the 11.0/XP dual boot FAQ in the How To forum.I have my Home directory backed up on an external HD. Might try KDE next go-round or KDE & Gnome as separate users. I have 11.2 i586 installation DVD.

OpenSUSE Install :: Where Is Grub Loaded On Dual-boot System

Jan 24, 2010

I am currently rebuilding a couple laptops and a desktop to dual boot Windows and Suse 11.2. Windows is installed on partition 1. On the laptops, the build goes fine and dual boot with grub is OK. No issues. But on the desktop, the exact same build (after all the on-line updates, etc) fails with "Operating system not found" on the final (and first) boot. It seems that the Suse 11.2 build is somehow resetting the active partition and the boot does not see grub or Windows. When I reset partition #1 back to "active, only Windows loads. So I guess I need to fix this by reinstalling grub. Or use the Windows boot loader.

(1) Where is grub located on my system?

(2) What partiton is the Linux master Boot record If I wanted to use the Windows boot loader and do the following command to grab the 512 bytes I need:

dd if=/dev/sna? of=grub.bin bs=512 count=1

My partition layout is below. This is output from gdisk.exe in DOS7. It's an 80gig drive.

1 = Windows-7
2 = /boot
3 = swap

OpenSUSE Install :: RAID Driver In Dual Boot System?

Feb 11, 2010

I just installed SUSE 11.2 as dual-boot with WinXP on an older system that has a 160GB PATA drive and a 500GB SATA RAID drive. I left about 80GB on the PATA drive unpartitioned to accommodate SUSE. During the initial installation attempt, SUSE was determined to install on the RAID drive instead of the PATA drive, so I disabled the SATA drivers in the BIOS to force the installation on the PATA drive. This was successful, but now there is no access to the RAID drive from SUSE because there is no driver and it is not mounted. I reactivated the SATA drivers in the BIOS and the RAID drive reappeared in WinXP with everything intact. The SATA drives now appear in SUSE under Hardware Information as "/dev/sdb" and "/dev/sdc" and the listed driver is "sata_sil".

So how do I get the RAID drivers installed in SUSE and then mount the drive so it can be browsed/modified from Dolphin? I would also like to be able to browse/change this drive from other computers on my home network through samba, just like with WinXP.

OpenSUSE Install :: Evrgreen Zypper Up And Server Don't Boot Anymore?

Jun 3, 2011

I use evergreen for 11.1 on a hosted server. I just did a "zypper up" and I can't boot anymore!I still have access to the server through a recovery system a bit like the openSUSE rescue. But my main mail server in on this machine, so I don't have anymore access to the evergreen mailing list (of course I can subscribe from gmail of else, but i try first here).

I can reinstall from my hosting provider, but I just missed the point that this reinstall is not from 11.1 but to 11.4, and that mean I have to reconfigure most of my service, and this takes time.is there a way I can reinstall original 11.1 base? may I stop the evergreen repo, do zypper up and be undergraded?important notice: this server use a provider kernel and lilo, not the evergreen kernel. I now have a 2.6.38 kernel next time I will try simply issuing "lilo".

Ubuntu Installation :: No Operating Systems Found On Dual Boot Install

Aug 23, 2010

I currently have Windows 7 installed. I wish to dual boot this with Ubuntu 10.4. On a 120gb drive I allocated a large percentage to Windows and have put two partitions on the end; 1gb for swap, 15gb for Ubuntu. However, when I go to install and get to the partition manager bit it claims no operating systems have been found. Contrary to this, when I boot into the live CD it sees all the partitions, however these cannot be accessed and no error messages are displayed (However, accessing the Windows partition appeared to corrupt the install and I had to format...). When running install from the live environment the same no operating systems found error occurs. Windows 7 works fine and the drive is IDE (if this makes any difference).

OpenSUSE Install :: No Kernel Was Found / Installation May Have Failed

Mar 23, 2010

I installed OpenSuSE 11.2 64bit from a Linux Magazine #111 dvd and now cannot create DomU guests. The exact error is in the subject line. It is sitting on a software RAID-1 partionion on two (mirrored) hard disks. When I first install - formatting all partitions - it reports error 17 and won't load the OS. After running the Repair installed system from the DVD I get the impression it is doing things twice rather than doing the repairs once on the RAIDed partition. Should I go back to 11.1?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot On System, Win 7 SP1 Wont Install?

Feb 23, 2011

So heres the thread i had a while back ( url) that had you guys help me setup the pretty standard dual boot of Win 7 and Ubuntu. I have 2 hard drives, main one (640gig) and backup (80gb). I have Win7 installed on the 640 and ubuntu on the 80.

So i have tried installing the SP1 twice today and it has failed. When i click on details on why it failed, it says: url

I can only imagine that this has to do with my Dual Boot. Is there anything i can do or am i stuck? I THINK that my grub and master boot and all that was on the second hard drive and it is the first drive in line to boot up...so i thought i wouldnt have any issues. Not totally sure though.

Im tempted to just remove Ubuntu, its cool to say i have it, but i honestly havent loaded up onto it more than 5 times since i installed it. When you have windows already...its near impossible to want to get onto a free OS that doesnt have the codecs or programs and im not familiar with it. If it was all i had though, (aka didnt own Windows) then obviously it would be my main OS and im sure id love it and have is customized and perfect.

OpenSUSE Install :: Run Zypper Dup In X Or Not?

Dec 6, 2009

I'm upgrading from 11.2 RC1 to the final release.

I searched here, but didn't find much in the way of tutorials. This page was the best I found: Upgrade openSUSE

That page indicates that I only need to run

Code:
zypper dup

Very simple, but is it complete?

Thinking it is not that simple, I put together my own list of steps and I'd like some feedback on whether all this is necessary. In particular, is it necessary to run zypper dup outside X? Are my steps too complex?

sudo -s
zypper lr --export backups/repos/foo.repo
zypper ref
zypper in zypper libzypp (nothing to do)

[Code].....

I solved that by going into yast and disabling the CD-based repository. How do you do this in zypper when the error message doesn't tell you the name of the offending repository? That error could be very confusing to someone who didn't realize that a CD-based repository would be responsible for this.
