OpenSUSE Install :: Staying At Run Level 7 - No More Processes To Run
Jun 21, 2011
On my fresh installed 11.4: I boot the desktop entry in GRUB, and it's doing a fast boot. It loads INIT and switchs to runlevel 7. Then the comment:
Code: init: No more processes left
Or something like that. after a CTRL+ALT+DEL and a press on enter during the driver load, it all works fine. Is that just a standard fault, or should I do something? If so, what?
I want to install a software called TinyOS which is an operating system designed for wireless sensor embedded networks in my account. The problem is it has instructions to install the software as an administrator since i'm not an admin of the department network i can not able to install. Is there any method to install this software as an user level rather than admin level.
I've been able to kludge a kill script which finds the correct pid for the kdeserver (or gnome server) after my system comes up in run level 5 so I can drop back to run level 3 mode. Lots of experimentation showed me that using telinit 3 and telinit 5 would occasionally leave the video memory in a mess and I would have the black screen of death.
I set the security parameter setting to autologin for me since I am the only user of my machine, but I still have to kludge the default setting under sysconfig (the DEFAULT_WM) under Window Manager to pick a certain window manager, so it takes time to manually switch the desktop.
Right now I can leave the gui and drop back to cli, but painful experimenting showed me that killing the X server is a no no. Right now I kill the kde server, which sends the SIGTERM to the X windows manager, which then figures out that it has to shut down.
Questions: Is there a better way of doing this? Apparently openSUSE figures that we have multiple users logging into the gui desktop, so the gui is always kept running and a login window with the desktop manager option forces the user to login in. With autologin, this never happens, but no choice of desktop is possible on the fly.
Can some type of script be set up to painlessly enable this to happen? And what is the best way of bringing either the Gnome or KDE desktop manager down gracefully? I do get lots of error messages as the system attempts to recover and X shuts down. It appears that apparently the single user with autologin is left out in the cold.
i just upgrade my system (64 bit) form 11.2 to 11.3 (via zypper).Since the upgrade, suse boots only in text mode. I installed the ATI drivers (ATI Radeon HD4890), now i only see a backscreen after the suse bootscreen.The system seems to boot correctly. I'm able to connect normally to the fts-server which is running on the machine.I even can't boot in runlevel 3, when i try to enter the bootloader.
Earlier this evening I suddenly had hundreds of "Bug Buddy" windows start popping up, which seemed to be stuck in an infinite loop. I rebooted to find myself stuck in run-level 3, due to multiple daemons unable to boot.I cant copy & paste the logs as I have no way to transfer them over to this PC.
Failed services in runlevel 5: earlyxdm xdm avahi-daemon network-remotefs Of course when ever I run 'startx' neither my mouse or keyboard works.I've finally joined the forums, pitty It's because of errors.
I have installed OpenSuse 11.4 as a Xen guest on a host system running SLES11 and it gets stuck just as it reaches run level 3. I can ping it and various network ports are open but the virtual text console is unresponsive and I cannot ssh to the machine. Port 10080 (Amanda backup) is also open but not functioning properly. The odd thing is that this problem happened when I first installed the guest and then went away only to reappear when I rebooted after installing the latest kernel via Online Update.
Here are the last few messages on the console: Starting NFS client services: sm-notify idmapd..done Mounting network file systems ...Starting rpc.statd .....done ..done Starting sound driver..done ..done Starting irqbalance ..done Starting java.binfmt_misc ..done Setting up (remotefs) network interfaces: .....
Here are the last few messages from ssh: debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive,hostbased debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering RSA public key: /home/bobv/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Server accepts key: pkalg ssh-rsa blen 277 debug1: Authentication succeeded (publickey).

Note that I have set RUN_PARALLEL="no" in /etc/sysconfig/boot I have console=xvc0 as a kernel startup parameter. How I might debug this?
I am trying to change the default screen resolution in Run Level 3 to 640x480. I have tried changing the menu.1st file and the vga=0x301 mode sticks until the system begins to boot and then resets to a higher resolution. This system does not have X, or Sax2 so no go on those options. This is OpenSuse 11.3 x64.
I played the apprentice sorcerer trying to install mysql workbench by my own and I messed up the system 11.1 by removing accidentally some libraries and decided to jump on 11.4 by using the update feature from the DVD. It worked all good (it seems at least: I didn't lost any datas and all my servers are running ok) but there is no more X11 server (kde) running for the run level 5.
I checked the inittab file and it is set to 5. I can log on root account and now I'm searching how to install kde on this new 11.4 system. I didn't yet tried the failsafe option at boot. Is there a way to set up kde from the internet, my wifi connection is ok ? I saw that yast was not installed nore zypper nore yum. Do I first try another update to fix it (if possible) from DVD?
I have a VM based on SUSE 11.3 that boots into a console in run level 3. I am used GNOME so I am trying to get it installed but not having any success. I don't know a lot about the VM as I got it 2nd hand.
So far I have gone into YAST and installed gdm and all the dependencies. I have changed from Run level 3 to 5.
When I run startx I get
xauth: creating new authority file /root/ /serverauth.15072 /etc/x11/xinit/xserverrc: line 56: exec: X: not found giving up xinit: No such file or directory (error2): unable to connect to X server xinit: No such process (error3): Server error.
you can find a cutout of an output generated by "iwlist s" command for a cell. Does anybody know what Quality, Signal level and Noise level mean? What is the definition of them? I searched for it and could not find good information on it. What do these Extra:*** fields for? What does it show in the example above? How were those values computed?
FYI: I used this exact video card on an older mainboard and ran linux with it no problem and all hardware checks out okay when I drop in a HD with XPpro on it, which makes this a linux software problem by my reckoning - video setup most likely. I can boot to the green Startup Options screen and then my ignorance starts to show.
I wanted to boot to level 3 then try some things (init 3, sax2 -r) I've read about on this forum and from www search but I'm password blocked in level 3!? Install only asked me for one password and it doesn't work here.
There was an xorg update that I did today (June 8) and when try to boot into runlevel 3, it stops when it gets to starting up sntp. I also saw that it said DHCP client not running. When I try again (push the power button) and allow it to do what it wants, everything seems to start up just fine. I'm asking about this because I need to re-install my NVIDIA graphics card driver. For the boot options, I've tried clearing the text (I don't remember what they are at the moment) and typing:
Code: nomodeset 3 and when that failed, I've tried it as Code: nomodeset3 but still get stuck at the same spot. I've also tried it without clearing the text but still it gets stuck.
How can I get to runlevel 3 in order to re-install my graphics card driver? I cannot run my 3D software without it. Can I switch to runlevel 3 from the usual (normal GUI) screen? I can't remember the command. I'm running SuSE 11.4.
When I set up Twin View in the nVidia config tool (as either a regular user or as root), it only lasts until I log out and log back in (i.e. restart x) or until I restart the machine. In either case once I get to the log in splash screen again, it is only operating on one monitor, and when I log in I have to reconfigure in order to get Twin View back. How can I get the configuration to stay?

I just installed opensuse 11.2 on an AMD 64 bit 3800. It has an nVidia GeForce 7600 GS card. I installed the nVidia driver no problem and can access the nVidia config app as a regular user or as root. Both access via KDE run level 5. That is, in a GUI desktop environment. I set up Twin View fine (it is kind of clunky process, but it does recognize my monitor resolutions fine) and click apply and I get the twin view I want. I clicked on save x config but all it does is bring up a file save dialog with a 'browse' button. Isn't this supposed to automatically know where the X config file is and update it? If it isn't, what file am I supposed to look for to save over? I looked in /etc/X11 and only found the following files:
hello everyone, im having a problem when my computer enters in the run level 4 as the default when i start slackware. The strange thing is that it not seems that is a X window problem, it looks like more like a configuration problem in some part of the kde script to initialize the log in, because if i manually start the X service it works fine, i dont know what is the source. Thank you in advance for the help.
I am running F10 x86_64 with Nvidia Quadro FX 3400. I installed the drivers and it worked just fine. No errors generated according to Nvidia log files. However, while in run level 5 when I try to switch to run level 3 by typing "telinit 3" or "init 3" the X server goes down and I get a blank screen. Same thing happens when I try to switch to a different tty session by <ctrl>+<alt>+F2 (or any F key for that matter). I also noticed that when I shut down my system I can't see any more the screen where services are shutting down and their status ([OK] or [failed]).
Hey Guys, I'am new here and request your help on this: After installing emacs and a few dependencies on my RHEL 5, on restarting the system, the keyboard was not able to work. I restarted several times in vein.
However, when I start in single mode, it works perfectly. I have tried looking for a solution from google, but in vein.
My system, setup as a server, has 9 kjournald processes and each one has many worker threads. FOr the most part they just sit idle but I do see one or two occasionally activate with disk activity (which you would expect).
However is 9 processes normal or am I getting stale processes that need to be looked into?
I have a directory that has a another directory inside it. The top directory is rather redundant since it only contains the one other one. Is there a way to delete the top level directory and have the contents simply "move up a level"?
Just now Rhythmbox has stopped working. I can't restart it, so I thought I could kill the process to start it again. Is there something like the windows task manager in openSUSE or another way to list all processes and to kill one? I googled an found a few old threads saying that there is a performance monitor which is able to to that, but I can't find that either.
I actually have a problem with the keyboard config under Firefox.I'm unable to use 3rd level keyr under firefox, in any other apps the thrird level is working.The keayboard layout is set underkde with the setting toot.and 3rd level set as the "super key" (win key).the problem occur since I've upgrade from opensuse 11.2 to 11.3 with zypper dup (the upgrade as succes without any error) so with opensuse 11.3 KDE 4.4 firefox 3.6.6.With a similar setting under gentoo I don't have this problem nor with my own system base on LFS...
From there I suppose the problem come from a conflict between Suse keyboard handeling and firefox. However I don't know where to go from there.
If I set the level for headphone via Yast/Sound at 50% it is back to 100% after a reboot what gives Pulse-Audio vs. alsa ?I'm running a Dell latitude D830 and the card is 82801 H (ICH8 family) and the driver is snd-hda-intel.
in Kmail 2.0.89 and the 2 or 3 versions before that, I have been lost theability to make a new subfolder under the category "KMail_Folders". I canonly make sub-subfolder under any existent one.The Add Folder entry in the menu is greyed when I am in the KMail Folders level.Is that a bug or a feature? (I hope is not the latter...)
