OpenSUSE Install :: Recent Update Of Os11.3 Left System With Boot Failure / File Not Found

Nov 4, 2010

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.
Appeared to install ok but on reboot, sda5 identified as 'mepis' not os11.3 and would not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

Next, booted live Parted Magic and repaired as per another thread here, but again, no joy.NONE of the systems will boot.Rebooted mepis live cd and reinstalled grub again. Sda5 still identified as mepis and will not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

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 :: 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 :: 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?

Fedora :: Recent Kernel Update Won't Boot ?

Aug 10, 2009

The girlfriend did an update a few nights ago. Besides removing her NVidia drivers, it also installed kernel version 2.6.27.29-170.2.78.fc10.i686.

That kernel was causing problems. Now it won't boot at all. How do we remove that kernel altogether?

If we remove it, would simply doing another update from the previous (still working) kernel just try to reinstall that bad kernel?

Ubuntu :: Unable Boot After A Recent Update

Jan 6, 2011

I've been running ubuntu on multiple computers for about 8 months now, installed on one computer as it's only OS (XP ran too slowly), and as a side OS for two others, one running XP and one running 7.The problem is, Ubuntu recently stopped booting on my Windows 7 computer. The option shows at start-up, but when I select it, the computer restarts back to the boot menu. I had recently installed an update from Update Manager that required a Restart, so when I restarted it to finish installing I left it to have dinner and it restarted into windows.About a day later, I wanted to boot ubuntu again, but my computer simply restarted, and has been doing this since (it's been about 3 days). I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but the last thing I installed before the update was a 1st person shooter game, I can't remember the name, but the icon was a "ka" symbol in katakana.

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)

Fedora X86/64bit :: Cannot Complete Boot After Most Recent Update

Apr 26, 2009

Just did the most recent set of updates late yesterday (kernel and Nvidia). Since the update I cannot get to a login screen - just blinking cursor. In fact the cursor blinks for a bit then disapears only to reappear as if there are repeated attempts to complete a process unsuccessfully.

The update replaced the xorg.conf. I tied a couple of revisions, inlcuding replacing it with the earlier working xorg.conf. No luck.

Hardware is MSI K9N6GM board with Nvidia Geforce 6100 nforce 430.

XEN item appeared in GRUB boot menu along with other items (OpenSUSE, windows...).I was instructed to boot XEN in order to use virtual machines.During boot, XEN was examining my disks and partitions, and when it reached CD and DVD drives, seemingly it went into infinite loop between the two drives. Finaly the screen went dark, and I have to make hard reboot. How can I work around this problem?

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?

Ubuntu :: Hangs On Boot Up After Most Recent Kernel Update To Version 2.6.38-11

Sep 1, 2011

The most recent kernel update, to version 2.6.38-11 has been a horror. It hangs on boot up. Sometimes I can get to the log in screen, then it hangs there as well. However, after 3-5 reboots (which is absolutely annoying to do when I just want to use my computer), it sometimes loads up finally. However, if I go to older Linux version in the Grub menu, then I can select 2.6.38-10 and it runs just fine.

So I am looking for a way to fix this problem, whether it be removing the most recent kernel update, or making 2.6.38-10 boot up by default. I noticed that the kernels are listed in the synaptic package manager, but I am afraid to remove the most recent one via synaptic. Is it as simple as removing the Linux version and headers I don't want, or are there other things I need to do in order to make 2.6.38-10 my default kernel at start-up?

OpenSUSE :: Found Weird File In System Possibly Hacked?

Sep 13, 2010

for a while I?ve seen hundreds of attempts via ssh against my system. They finally stop and this could mean only two things my security measures are working "NOT" or they actually got in. In any case browsing around my system for suspicious changes I found a file"agent.4015" on my tmp folder. This file denies read privileges to root and I?m afraid to chmod until I know for sure what it is.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: System Won't Boot After Recent Updates?

Jul 18, 2009

I did a yum update to install quite a few updates to my Centos 5.3 x86_64 system. Updates included kernel and xen which required a reboot. It must be a month or so since I last updated. The updates seemed to go fine - but when the machine restarts it goes through the bios screens which seem to detect all the hard drives etc - but then the word "Grub" appears at the bottom of the bios screen - and the system hangs. It doesn't appear to respond to keyboard input. The system is using linux raid in case that is relevant.

I am able to boot a centos5.2 live CD and look at the Logical volumes - and all appears in order to my untrained eye. I have also mounted the /dev/mdo as /tmp/bootx (boot volume) and had a quick look at /tmp/bootx/grub/grub.conf and /tmp/bootx/grub/device.map and again - I can't spot any obvious problem. I note that before the updates - my default boot was "1" and now it is "0" though this appears reasonable because the xen and non-xen images seem to be listed in the opposite order to earlier updates. I have set it to boot non-xen by default - and this has always worked in the past.

I realise that the recent updates may be a coincidence - and whatever is wrong may have occurred earlier. I cannot think of anything I have done which could have broken grub though. I can probably restore my boot volume to the state it was before the updates. I should have a backup from this morning - as luck would have it. Is this a safe thing to do - or do I need to restore both boot and root to keep them consistent. I would prefer not to restore the root system unless I have to - as this would cause some data loss. However I need advice as to whether yum and other things will get confused if the boot volume is restored in isolation.

OpenSUSE Install :: Failure Reading Root Partition During Boot?

Nov 19, 2010

Recently, I had to switch harddrives on one of my servers due to the need for hardware.

However, when I switched back to the original harddrive I got a surprise : Instead of booting normally in OpenSuse 11.3, it booted in the grub shell.

I did a root ( hd0,1) but when I attempted the setup cmd it failed. Thinking that I probably was a configuration error ( nothing was changed - the drive had spent some time in a nice anti static bag ) I booted using a USB key.

To my surprise I got a message stating that parted couldn't read the other partitions ( boot and swap ) and hence I would not be able to edit then. Fortunately, the data partition seemed OK so I can backup the data.

Preferbly, I would like to be able to restore my original system.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wifi Connection Fails After The Recent Update?

Jul 8, 2010

Recently I updated my openSUSE 11.2 and I'm not too sure what all were the recent updates but I suspect networkmanager also got updated. After I restarted my machine, my laptop fails to connect to the wireless access point. I tried both in gnome as well as KDE but the same error. This is the log I found in my /var/log/NetworkManager which I believe should give some pointers.

Code:
Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0) starting connection 'Buckeye Plaza'
Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): device state change: 3 -> 4 (reason 0)
Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...

[Code]....

I did a search of this error in google and all I got were few results which complained about bugs in some debian distro.

My wireless card works fine and so does the access point I try to connect to since my Ubuntu installation is able to connect fine as well as my windows Xp.

Fedora Installation :: F12 Upgrade - Boot Failure / No Root Device Found

Jun 1, 2010

I'm a long time Linux user. Finally got around to upgrading my Fedora 11 system to Fedora 12 by using the 'preupgrade' tool. The upgrade appeared to go well (downloaded packages, rebooted into installer, etc). However, now that the upgrade is complete, I'm unable to boot my system.

Here's my configuration:
/dev/sda (80Gb)
200Mb /boot partition (ext3)
52Gb / partition (ext4 - managed as logical volume)
2Gb swap partition (managed as logical volume)
20Gb /spare partition (ext3 - managed as logical volume) .....

All worked fine under Fedora 11 for the last few months. Grub now presents me with 'Fedora' and 'Windows XP' boot options. The /boot/grub/menu.lst file is essentially the same as it was for Fedora 11, except for the different kernel versions, etc. The boot sequence shows the Fedora bubble (??) and gets about 80% full when the screen goes black and the message displayed is:

No root device found
Boot has failed, sleeping forever
If I boot Windows, all works fine.

Am able to boot using a SystemRescueCD disk. The disks all look okay and I can mount/modify all partitions, etc. The grub menu.lst file read as follows (sorry, typed in, not copied):
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.32.11-99.fc12.i686.PAE)
root (hd0,0) .....

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed OpenSUSE 11.3 And Can't Boot - Error 15: File Not Found

Nov 16, 2010

Decided I'd like to take a look at OpenSUSE and installed onto my desktop. Already successfully dual booting Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows XP (which I keep purely for iTunes). When I start the PC the Ubuntu grub menu showing Ubuntu and Windows options has been replaced by a Suse-branded screen showing something that looks (to my untrained eye) like a grub menu. Ubuntu and Suse are listed. If I select Ubuntu I am shown a dos screen with "Error 15: file not found". I am then taken to the old Ubuntu grub screen but trying to boot Ubuntu from that menu returns the same error. I know all the data is still there - I can mount the drive in Suse and view all my documents.

I have searched the forums and tried to follow some of the instructions given in response to similar threads but I'm afraid I didn't get very far. Please assume that I have NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of Linux! I really know nothing about it and am only just getting to grips with basic terminal commands. Goodness knows why I thought OpenSUSE would be a good idea... I found instructions for running Boot Info Script and these are the results:
