OpenSUSE Install :: Killing A Repository Entry?

Jun 26, 2011

I am having a problem since upgrading from OPENSuSE 11.2 to 11.4 (both 64bit). The problem goes back to some issue with repositories which is what "forced" me into an 11.4 upgrade.

So, upon completing the install, and every time I run YAST to do updates, I get a message about this: "Error refreshing service ATI Repository (" How is it that this repository entry survived the upgrade install? Ok, forget that, how do I get rid of this when I can't get it to display in the list of repositories I have?

What is even worse, I don't have ATI drivers on this system (I had uninstalled them a year ago, pulled in the NVidea, esw, etc.) as I had put an NVidea adapter card in, in place of the ATI built in (on the MOBO). Somehow that dropping of the repository didn't work, and now I have this thing in limbo? ps. I can't figure out what string to search in my file system or I'd have deleted the sucker last night during the install manual reboot.

Aug 27, 2010

my own fault really,just dived in to do the update and did not back everything up. I have three disks in my machine one winxp for games , one was suse 11.2 and added lately one for ubuntu. added the ubuntu disk installed and this replaced the grub loader, still gave me all my previous options but does not look as nice as the suse I did update on 11.2 and thought would give me the nice one back and still have all my entries. Er no. entry for win and 11.3 but no ubuntu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Entry Modification - Cannot Remove From Menu List

Jun 20, 2010

I've recently installed suse x64 kde in dual boot mode with windows. I have 2 primary partitions with ntfs with 1 for windows7 boot and other for data/storage. There is no boot provision for data partition. SUSE install is on extended partition. I am unable to run fdisk -l and boot info script for some reason, kde is freaking me out (used to use gnome for last 4 years). The GRUB shows data as a boot and it added an entry in its menu. I will like to remove that entry from menu list.

OpenSUSE Install :: Authorization Entry - Error No Space Left On Drive

Oct 13, 2010

We had a perfectly working SUSE OES netware server for some months, and wanted to create a new image backup. Using Acronis Backup and Recovery Advanced Server Software. This worked a treat on our SBS 2008 Server. We went to run it for Novell OES and a system lock up occurred and services such as Iprint then disabled. A server restart recovered the server after a few attempts. We then learnt that the server could not write files to an NTFS formatted USB drive. This was the ideal destination to test the backup. However we could not even write a simple file to the drive without an error message about permissions.

We then learnt that Linux needs a package called NTFS-3G to enable NTFS writing permissions. This did fix the writing issues. We attempted to run another back up which again failed, bringing down the server. We again attempted to reboot the server this time we fail to get to the graphical user login. At the suse Linux Enterprise boot screen we select "boot from hard disc". Which fails immediately with "GDM could not write a new authorisation entry to disk...Error no space left on drive". When the boot eventually continues, a number of things fail with the same message about "No space left on device".

The next message starts "Could not start the X server due to some internal error."

Further to the above, starting "recovery" instead, the checks of partition fail and it seems obvious that the partition definitions have become corrupted. In the expert partion manager the lines for partitions seem correct except that there are no entries for 'mount point' and 'mount by' columns. Trying to edit these lines does not appear to allow entries for mount point or mount by - they are disabled. It seems likely the server is not mounting some partitions at boot which is why the kernel thinks the server is full. Is there some simple way we can use say fdisk to repair the partition definition without loosing anything of the server OS and data ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Looses Menu Entry After Kernel Update?

Oct 15, 2010

I have manually added an entry for Ubuntu in my grub menu, using Yast. But every time the kernel is updated, this entry disappears. On the other hand, the one for Windows, that was added during OpenSuse's installation, is still there. So how can I keep this entry for Ubuntu ?

Edit : when I save the menu configuration in Yast, I get the following message :
Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
kbuildsycoca4 running...

OpenSUSE Install :: OpenFATE - #310836: Add An Option In YaST To Comment Out An Entry

Nov 20, 2010

I agree that this is a problem in making every NTFS partition a boot selection option in your grub menu.lst file during the installation of openSUSE. Someone should consider asking help from please_try_again in the openSUSE forums on how to find a bootable Windows partition and add that fuction to the openSUSE installer. Here is a pointer to the findgrub article here.

Looking for Grub and Windows bootloader in all partitions.The basic situation is that there is normally is only ONE booting copy of Windows, so why would you create three or four menu entries due to the number of NTFS partitions found on a hard drive? Finally, just as indicated by Jean-Daniel Dodin, If one of those partitions in the restore partition and a user boots it, it could be all over for the user copy of Windows, for the openSUSE install and for ever getting this user to try openSUSE again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install 12.1 M5 From Hard Disk - Error - No Repository Found

Sep 13, 2011

I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.

I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.

But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.

I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 Reducing CPU Frequency And Killing Performance

Aug 3, 2010

I have a Dell Precision M6400 laptop with an Intel Core2 Duo 2.8 GHz processor.I have set Power Management to performance when on AC power and have also written a script that calls cpufreq-set to set the lower and upper limits to 2.80 GHz (cpufreq-info output below).However, sometimes when doing some heavy work the frequency suddenly gets reduced to 1.60 GHz on both cores and I cannot set them back to 2.80 GHz using the script (cpufreq-set says errors occurred). Performance is then totally gone and I have to reboot. The same script then works fine after a reboot.What is setting the lower limit back down to 1.60 GHz even though I set it to 2.80 GHz using my script? How can I stop/configure this or prevent it from happening?

Debian Configuration :: Xen Install Killing Previous Pbo Update?

Dec 22, 2010

If I should have put this in the beginners forum, I'm new to Debian but not to linux having used Slackware for some years. My problem is a kernal thing I think so probably best posted here.

I'm trying Debian because of the belief that I can use the Edinburgh Speech Software easier for my project work, also I wanted to use xen if possible. Having installed Debian Lenny amd64, the sound wasn't working on the machine but after installing the bpo the sound worked. The next thing to do was to try to install xen. Following an install of xen, the sound no longer works in the xen image, though I can still boot into the bpo kernel and get sound alright. When I boot into any kernel now I get a kernel failure problem just after I have logged in (Your system had a kernel failure),, though I can still go on with things - this happens whichever kernel I try to use. However the kernel which is last in the list I have pasted below (Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-1-xen-amd64), will not run at all and complains so:
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

On boot with all kernels I also get the message: Failed to read splash image ((hd0,0)//grub/splash.xpm.gz), which I didn't get before the xen installation. Something I thought to try was to install lenny again, then install the xen parts and then after this install thb bpo upgrade, but I am thinking this will not particularly work - if I did this and ended up with a working bpo kernel/boot, would this boot option include the xen functionality or not?

OpenSUSE Install :: Adding DVD's To Repository List?

Feb 7, 2010

I just purchased openSUSE 11.2 x64 on DVD from, as well as the 5 x64 repository DVD's. The base install went fine, but when I try to add thos's to my software repositories using yast they all have the same listed name, "repository" - I can change that to show "repository disk 1" etc, but when I go to install stuff and the software installer asks for "repository disk 1" I put that in the dvd drive, and it cannot recognise it, spits it out and asks for the same disk again...hmmmm. Should I not change the default name that comes up when each DVD is added to the list? If I leave them unchanged will I be told which is the correct disk to insert, remembering that in the list they all have the same name

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Create Repository From URL

Feb 23, 2010

I have a small installation problem with openSUSE 11.2 I have read the relevant stuff in the forums for new users. I have downloaded openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586-iso and verified the file using MD5. I am currently running windows XP (SP1) on a Fujitsu Siemens V1000 laptop andI am trying to install linux from my hard drive and not from a DVD drive.

The path to the downloaded file on my windows partition is: e:/OpenSuse/openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso I have initialised installation and selected sda6 as the partition where the sourcefile is located. and when prompted for the directory, I typed " /OpenSuse/openSUSE-11.2DVD-i586.iso " The installations then proceeded through to "Initialising Package Manager" upon which I get the following message:

" Unable to create repository from url' iso:/? iso=openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso&url=hd:/OpenSuse?device=/dev/sda6"

DETAILS: Failed to mount iso:///?iso=openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso & url=hd:/OpenSuse?device=dev/sda6 on: Unable to find iso filename on source media.

History: - File:/openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso not found on medium 'hd:///OpenSuse?device=dev/sda6'

There is an option to try again at which point an additional dialog box appears and I have the opportunity to change things. Other than that, the only option is to cancel and terminate the installation. I've tried the process around 3 times, but if I'm doing the same thing then not surprising I'm getting the same result.
