OpenSUSE Install :: Select Desktop Kernel With 11.3 DVD?

Jan 28, 2011

Never thought much about it until now a but is it possible to get the desktop kernel at install with 11.3 DVD ? I always get default-kernel and have to do the kernel dance to get the desktop-kernel I prefer. I'm familiar with the multiversion = kernel-desktop and methods to retain different versions. Just wondering.

OpenSUSE Install :: Select Desktop In Grub ?

Dec 20, 2009

I have installed KDE as my desktop, I have managed to get XMBC working from KDE. At times it would be nice just have XMBC load automatically from boot up. I know that its possible to have XBMC load as the Desktop Enviroment.

Is it possible to have something like this setup for Grub?

1 - openSUSE - KDE (Default)
2 - openSUSE - KDE (SafeMode)
3 - openSUSE - XMBC
4 - Windows XP

If so is it also possible to get more fancy and have KDE goto a login screen and XMBC auto login?

OpenSUSE Install :: Time Wrong In XEN Kernel But Right In Desktop Kernel?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a system running openSUSE 11.2 with Desktop and XEN kernel, as well as Windows 7 (not by choice though...). I have noticed a strange time issue, with Windows 7 and the desktop kernel the time is correct (like for example now: 1:32 PM) but in the XEN kernel it is ahead several hours (6:32 PM). If it was an issue between openSUSE and windows then I would think that it is a problem with the system clock but I don't know what would cause a time issue between kernels like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Differences Between Kernel Default And Kernel Desktop?

Jul 21, 2010

differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.

However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Select And Install Desktop Managers In Net-install?

Dec 23, 2015

I downloaded and mounted debian-8.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso on my work machine's VirtualBox v5.0.12 to check out Debian stable/Jessie's installer and clean installation in case I need to do it soon. I like the new installer compared to 11/24/2011 on my old desktop machine. It is much nicer, fancier with its advanced options, etc.

However, I ran into issues with its "Select and Install" part when I selected desktop managers (e.g., KDE and Gnome) and continued. It failed as shown in [URL] .... images. Why? I tried again from scratch and same thing. If I don't select any and just select non-GUI stuff (e.g, SSH and standard system utilities), then it works but I want the pretty GUI stuff.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Freezing With Kernel

After migrating from openSUSE-11.1 to openSUSE-11.2 together with a few further online updates including a kernel upgrade to, my system started freezing a couple of times for two days.

I made up my mind googling for "linux freeze", found a hint saying, that causes trouble, fell back to, and voila: the problem is gone. What a relief!

OpenSUSE Install :: Unusual Warnings On Kernel Desktop

Feb 10, 2010

Finally got around to updating from and was surprised at the slew of warnings issued during the install. Rather than post them here, see:
pastebin - Someone - post number 1792805
I would have bet money that the machine wouldn't boot after this, but it in fact did (whew). Since the kmp modules were not updated with this new kernel, I have merely suspicions....any one have the real reason for these warnings? Same type of warnings occured (thou I didn't copy the output) when I installed the ATI prop driver rpm. everything seems to work as normal so far, but it was so very different than many previous updates that I'm a bit leery.

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- 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 Install :: When It Boots First See The Welcome Screen, Then The OpenSUSE Installer, Whether Select The Live (GNOME) Option?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a SONY PCG-R505TE laptop with an external CD/DVD, it connects via what I think is a PCMCIA card, the drive came with the laptop and functions fine. I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.

OpenSUSE :: Select And Install All The Listed Rpm's?

Feb 27, 2011

I have been using Suse Linux for years and I must ask some basic questions about repositories which may be elementary to many. Recently I was redirected to a repository with over 30 rpms and I figured it is time to ask the questions. Is it implied that when you go to a repository that one has to select and install all the listed rpm's?

If so, which order do you use? Is there some tool to load all at once instead of individually? If not, is there an intelligent way to select the ones you need or does one simply use "trial and error" approach? Can you skip development rpms?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Select Relevant Patches

Oct 2, 2010

Near the end of the install, a panel lists dozens of patches, some categorized as "Security", others as "Recommended", each preceded by a checkbox. I started to check all of the patches, but then noticed that the checks were bringing in software I had not requested -- e.g., checking an emacs patch brought in emacs. Rather than bring in all of this additional software, I left all patches unchecked. Now I need to know how I can go back and apply only the patches that pertain to software that I have actually installed.

I'd also like to know whether there is some way to limit the install program panel to relevant patches only.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Select Individual Updates For Installation?

May 3, 2010

I appear to be unable to select individual updates for installation anymore from the Yast Online update screen. I use this to install updates manually on 11.1. But everytime I think I've chosen an update to install, all the updates listed get installed, and not just the one I've chosen. For example I just chose a "Fuse security update" to install and clicked the "Install" button. Nothing further happens until I click "Apply". Then all patches listed under the "All available" listing get applied. How do I just apply the patches that I want to ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Select The Catalan (Valencian) Translation - 47 Locales?

May 1, 2011

Let me introduce this topic before I ask my question. When selecting the system language, there are different options that are based on the ISO-639 standard, which defines a code locale for each language and country. This allow us to select, for example, pt_BR (Brazilian Portuguese) or pt_PT (Portuguese form Portugal) as the language system. Then, if two variants of a language are in a different country, the ISO-639 can differentiate them this way.

But there are languages, for example Catalan, that have two variants in the same country. Then, the ISO-639 cannot differentiate them. Here is where the BCP-47 standard appears [1]. It adds a subtag to identify variants or other codifications (like sr and sr@latin) of a language. In the Catalan case, standard Catalan uses the ca_ES locale code, and the Valencian variant uses the ca_ES-valencia locale code (the subtag is -valencia). On systems based on Debian is possible to select this variants using the @ modifier. Then, if I define this LANG environment:


The translation shown on the system is the ca@valencia (for example, in GNOME). GNOME is already translated into Catalan (Valencian) [2]. As well as KDE,, VirtualBox, Firefox and many others. Here is my question: How can I select the Catalan (Valencian) translation (not the standard Catalan one) when using openSUSE? I have tried modifying the /etc/sysconfig/language file, and defining the rc_lang to:

OpenSUSE Install :: With LiveUb Over Ubuntu - Select The Partitions (drive And Swap)

May 11, 2011

I'm a "new" Linux user, have been using Ubuntu for the last year with no problem but I decided to try out a different distribution to get more experience. So I decided to go with openSUSE (which I have been using on a VirtualMachine back at work). I have download the ISO, created an liveUSB (because my laptop dvd isn't working properly) and wanted to install openSUSE on the hard drive partition where currently Ubuntu is. So, I suppose that in order to do this I should choose the option "Import mount points" and select the Linux partitions (drive and swap) and that would be it.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Install An Older Kernel As Recent Kernel Is Not Compatible?

Feb 11, 2010

A few days ago yast did update my computer to a new kernel-desktop

My mainboard is an ASUS P4P800-VM with Intel ICH5 chipset. This new kernel is not able, to poweroff my computer. Older kernels were able to poweroff the computer.

How can I roll back to the older kernel? Yast does only offer the recent kernel.

In /boot there are only files of the recent kernel.

Intel Pentium 4 HT, 3000 MHz, Frontside 800 MHz/Cache 1 MB
3 GB Ram

OpenSUSE :: 64-Bit Desktop Kernel Does Not Use NX CPU Flag

Dec 1, 2010

I recently install 64-bit OpenSuse 11.3, the first time I'd used Suse 64-bit - I have to say it has been all good so far, which is great. However, today I was experimenting with a tool that tests vulnerabilities which should be remedied if using an NX capable processor. I am running on an Intel Core i7. I downloaded a 64-bit compatible version of paxtest from :


Running it I was surprised to see that the NX capabilities of the CPU do not appear to be honored. Here are my results:

PaXtest - Copyright(c) 2003,2004 by Peter Busser <>

Released under the GNU Public Licence version 2 or later

Mode: blackhat
Linux callandor #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Executable anonymous mapping : Killed
Executable bss : Killed


From my understanding, NX was one of the big deals a few years back and was a main feature provided by the PAE kernel. I would have thought the default 64-bit kernel would have included NX support. I also thought per NX bit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that NX support has been in the kernel since 2.6.8 I looked in config- but did not see anything related to NX/XD config wise, other than DEBUG_NX_TEST What am I missing here? Shouln't this test fail in the Executable [bss, stack, etc.] tests on 64-bit with a NX capable processor?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 From DVD - Load Kernel Operation Hangs At 97% (using Both Normal And Safe Kernel)

Feb 23, 2010

I am an experienced Linux admin and have been using SuSE for many years. My development machine has had every version of SuSE since '02 and although it is a little old, is in good working order. (AMD
2400, 2 gig RAM, 160 Gig IDE disks - SuSE on disk 2) (OpenSuSE 11.1 with the latest kernel works perfectly. This install is on a spare HDD prior to doing a full install on my usual HDD.)

When I try to install SuSE 11.2 from DVD, the load kernel operation hangs at 97% (using both normal and safe kernel), however, I can install from live CD without any problem. I have tried the same DVD on a few "older" machines and had the same problem. I initially thought it was the actual DVD but re-burning has the same problem. I have also tried another DVD writer - same problem.
