OpenSUSE Install :: Login Background Reset After Every Kernel Update

Nov 4, 2010

This is just a nit, but I have noticed that whenever the kernel is updated, the background picture that I have set up for the login screen seems to be reset to "default_blue". No other setting seems to be disturbed.

After each update, I have to go into Configure Desktop->Login manager and set my background picture again. Why is this happening? Is there a way to fix this?

I am running Suse 11.3, KDE v4.4.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Bootsplash/console Background After Kernel Update

May 16, 2011

Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable. On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?

P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)

OpenSUSE Install :: Dvd Reset - Update Wouldn't Work - MSwindows In The Grub Boot Menu Disappeared

May 28, 2010

I have a dual boot system: windows xp and suse(10.2). I had to reinstall windows(again). When I tried to use the installer, it kept reseting my partitions to 500gb+ to linux. Nothing I tried would let me put it to the way it was(50gb to linux). Repair install failed. Update wouldn't work. MSwindows in the grub boot menu disappeared. I tried reinstalling suse. The installer blocked any attempt by me to put the partitions back to normal. How do reset the windows and linux partitions(850gb windows, 50gb to suse linux)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Opensuse Under Grub2 With Splash Background And Console Background?

Mar 24, 2010

I originally have Ubuntu Lucid on my machine. I just installed opensuse 11.2 on another partition without bootloader installed. So I'm still using the Ubuntu Lucid default bootloader grub2. I can boot up opensuse correctly. the nagging thing is that there's no splash screen show up during the boot process, instead, lines of command are flashing, the console background is also missing and the font under console (tty1-6) is huge. what can I do to have these back to opensuse? the current entry in grub2 for opensuse

Code:
menuentry "openSUSE 11.2 (i586) (on /dev/sda2)" {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,2)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 9ac05ede-e7c4-47f3-b55b-66d5844$
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop root=/dev/sda2
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop
}
which parameters should I add?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Login In 11.2 Using Own Kernel

Dec 10, 2009

Using the defaukt x86_64 kernel openSuSE 11.2 (uograded from 11.1) works fine.

I have compiled my own kernel using the 11.1 config with minor changes. Botting runs fine and looking at the boot.msg compared between the default and my own kernel I only see preloadtrace.ko module missing on my own kernel which I would not expect causing mthe problem.

After the boot I am unable to login on the X login screen, text console or ssh.

The X login hangs after I entered username/password. Th elogin box disaapears and the backgroundscreen remains.

On the text console (after stopping xwindows via CTRL-Backspace) I can enter the username but the password prompt will not appear.

On ssh, where I login via plublic key I will get a message that the key will be used for login and then the session hangs as well.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Login After Update To Kde 4.6.1 On 11.4

Mar 15, 2011

If someone, like me, updated the shipped kde 4.6 to 4.6.1. using the repo KDE46/11.4 only to find himself stuck at the login screen, try this: From the "type of session" choose "Kde plasma workspace (failsafe session)" and try to login. Once logged in, logout, then choose "Kde plasma workspace" type of session and login again.

I installed the new 2.6.34.4-0.1 security update earlier today. Now, the login screen no longer responds to my keyboard. In particular, I cannot type my password to log in. If I reboot into failsafe mode, the keyboard works and I can log in.

OpenSUSE Install :: Slow X After Kernel Update To 2.6.27.39

Dec 14, 2009

As the title says. System is openSUSE 11.1 running KDE3.5 with KDE4.3 also installed to use desktop effects in KDE3.5. After update X uses 90% CPU to scroll down a page in FF, OOo or even in text editor, either with KWin and KWin4. With KWin4 desktop effects can't be enabled in system config.

From Xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Device"
BoardName "ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics"
Driver "fglrx"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "Capabilities" "0x00000000"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
Option "FSAAScale" "0"
Option "FSAAEnable" "off"
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Screen 0
VendorName "ATI"
Rolling back to kernel 2.6.27.37 fixed the problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Update Also In Error On 11.2?

Sep 26, 2010

After the lastest update 11.2 also suffers from the problem already reported here for 11.3. I am lucky to have two linux partitions and was actualy able to boot into the second partition. From this second system I could repair this or at least a quick-n-dirty fallback to be able to boot.

1. Copied the 2.6.21.12-0.2 version for initrd and vmlinuz from /boot to /first_partition/boot
2. Copied the /first_partition/boot/grub/menu.lst.old to /first_partition/boot/grub/menu.lst to reset to the old menu.

After boot the system could start but modules were not loaded.

3. copied /lib/modules/2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop from the second partition to the first.
4. The same for /usr/src/linux-2.6.31.12-0.2*

Now my system will boot and start modules such as network and sound. Still, was this correct? I don't know for sure if there are some issues that I haven't discovered yet. And obviously, what will happen with future updates (either kernel or other)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Xorg Don't Work After Kernel 2.6.27.42-0.1 Update?

Jan 18, 2010

After upgrading kernel, system (AMD 780G)refuses to start in graphic mode. Computer services running fine, but there's nothing or some trash on screen when X started. And no way how to get out except restarting or shutting down from remote computer.

Reinstalling, unistalling ATI driver doesn't help. Also manipulations with xorg.conf (install, safe etc previous file versions)doesn't help.

Sax2 detects videocard correctly, but result is same regardless which resolution@Hz is specified.

In logfiles I just can find this

Jan 19 04:12:55 www kdm_config[4226]: Multiple occurrences of key 'UseTheme' in section [X-*-Greeter] of /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc
Jan 19 04:12:55 www kdm[4225]: X server died during startup

OpenSUSE Install :: New Kernel As Part Of Auto Update?

Jan 20, 2010

the normal auto updater ran and installed a new kernel for security vulnerability and it was a .pae version. So after restart I now have 4 options on the boot screen, which includes the normal "SUSE" and a 'SUSE pae" version. defaulted to the new pae version and booted up. I got the video definition not found and had to enter a value manually. The system comes up but not into x system. It gives me a login prompt and startx yields a "terminal not found." Ran SaX2 and startx now works. Unfortunately my KDE desktop is messed up now. There are none of the normal "taskbar" at boot up started processes there. So what should I have done? how do I get my system back to normal and roll out the new kernel and all these changes?

OpenSUSE Install :: Update To 11.3 And Getting Kernel Panics Randomly

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Kernel-desktop Update Freeze?

Dec 5, 2010

On a fresh install 11.3 gnome I am getting an update freeze on the kernel-desktop-2.6.34.7-0.5.1. This is on the initial software update after first log in on fresh system. It downloads the package and freezes during the update and causes all my other updates to reload. I went to init 3 and ran zypper update and saw that it made it to 91% and then stopped. After that I usually get a corrupted install.

OpenSUSE :: Reset The Online Updater After The App- Crashed During Update

Dec 17, 2010

I'm running 10.3, KDE, 32bit. I am working with a fresh install. The updater stated that I had updates , I accepted the updates. At this point the updater failed in some way. It did not become a zombi but stalled. I quit the updater. Now when I try and get online updates using the sys tray updater it sais none available. When I use yast online update it has some recommended updates but does not install them. I rebuilt the rpm data base and this did not help.

How can I "reset" the updater. I believe that it thinks that it did go thru the updates and therefor cant see that they still need attention.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login To X Session Fails After YaST Online Update

Jun 1, 2011

I got a workstation with openSuse 10.3 pre-installed. After I did the Online Update from YaST2 and rebooted the machine as requested by YaST2, the system came to fail starting up an X session.

Below are excerpts of the message appeared on the screen at the end of the boot process. (I transcripted it from the screen by hand.)

Code:
Waiting for mandatory devices: eth1 __NSC__
10 9 8 7 5 4 3 2 1
eth1 devices: Intel Corporation 82573L Gigabit Ethernet Controller
eth1 DHCP4 client (dhcpcd) is running

[Code].....

what is causing the failure of the X session and how to fix the problem? I would be glad if you give me any hints or pointers.

OpenSUSE Install :: After Kernel Update No Ext4 Support At Boot Time

Apr 20, 2010

telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?

Edit : when I save the menu configuration in Yast, I get the following message :
