OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrading Xen Guest From 11.0 To Recent Version?

Oct 5, 2010

I have been trying for the last couple of days to upgrade a Xen guest running on Xen Server 5.5 from 11.0 to a more recent version. I have tried both 11.3 and 11.1. The upgrade seems to take, but it fails on the initial boot. It seems that it is expecting the root partition to be on /dev/sda2 - however I believe it is supposed to be /dev/xvda2. Initially when fstab had /dev/xvda2 I had a warning, so I changed fstab through yast to use the drives uuid. I've also tried zypper dup - but that gave all sorts of dependency errors. For kicks, I thought I might try 11.4 next. Am I out of luck and should just go with a fresh install?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrading From One Version To Another?

Sep 4, 2011

Thinking of installing openSuSE on my laptop and wondering how the upgrade process is. I know 12.1 is coming out in only a couple of months. I don't really want to spend all my time customizing 11.4 and then find out a straight upgrade is very buggy or even not possible and have to reinstall.

Ubuntu :: Install More Recent Version Of A Certain Software?

Sep 1, 2010

I am quite new to linux. I would like to install more recent version of a certain software, but before that, I have to remove the old version. This software is not obtained through repositories (well, you know, you download the package, ./configure, ./make etc.), so I'm not sure how to remove it.

General :: Install More Recent WM Version Than The 1 In Debian's Repositories?

Apr 24, 2010

1. I'm trying out ratpoison (a windows manager). It's cool, but a few commands weren't working - I now think that it's because Debian delivered ratpoison 1.4.3 (Feb 2008), while development has issued two more releases (the latest being 1.4.5). Should I (or should I not) install the later release?

2. IF I do, I need to figure out how to convert the tar.gz to a debian package

OpenSUSE Install :: Install A Recent Kernel And Then Compile Some Variations?

Jan 25, 2011

I'm running 11.2 with standard repositories (plus packman). I want to install a recent kernel and then compile some variations of it (to investigate a hardware problem).

So I took these steps:

(1) add the 11.2 Kernel:/HEAD repository
(2) enable multiversion in zypp.conf
(3) use YaST software management to select the kernel development pattern

Note that at the moment, the standard 11.2 kernel ( 2.6.31.14-0.6-desktop) is in use and I have not selected any packages from HEAD. But it has installed 2.6.37-41.1 versions of all the kernel packages I didn't already have (source & docs etc) instead of the 2.6.31 versions. /usr/src/linux symlinks to linux-2.6.37-41 instead of to a directory for the running kernel!

(1) it should have loaded the packages corresponding to the running kernel
(2) it's not supposed to switch repositories

Ubuntu :: Themes Gone From Most Recent Version Of Cairo-dock?

Jan 27, 2010

I'd read there was some work being done on cairo-dock this weekend (and noticed it absent from the Package Manager) and upon installing earlier today, I didn't find any of the previously available dock themes.

Were they removed for some reason or am I doing something wrong?

(Oh, and I'm looking within the 'Manage Themes' submenu within cairo-dock for reference.)

Slackware :: Script Which Delivers A Version Of Digikam More Recent That 1.2?

Apr 10, 2011

Does anybody have a Slackbuild script which delivers a version of Digikam more recent that 1.2 (which is what is on offer in Slackbuild.org) ? I have had that installed for some time and it works well (apart from geotagging which seems to be only partially developed) but the Digikam website has released 1.9 (stable) and 2.0 (quite advanced beta).

If anybody has successfully packaged any later versions for Slackware I would be grateful for information. Otherwise I will start building myself.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Recent Upgrade Unable To Input At Login

Jan 9, 2010

I just recently updated to openSUSE 11.2, but after restarting my computer, I was unable to do anything with the keyboard(type my password, CAPS LOCK, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) or move the pointer with my wireless mouse. After restarting the computer again, I turned on the touchpad of my laptop and was able to move the pointer using the built-in touchpad. After yet a 3rd restart, I could not move my pointer using any method.

After a 4th restart, I chose to enter the failsafe mode, where I could attempt to find the problem from the command line. I manually started KDM as root by typing in "kdm", but nothing happened, which means that the screen did not switch into graphical mode, but the terminal only accepted the command. Then, I manually started X as root by typing in "X", and X started. I only saw a black screen, but I could not kill X by the traditional "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace" and was forced to shutdown my computer via the power button.

I do want to note that on every boot of my machine, "WARNING" messages have begun appearing, but they went so fast that I could not read them. If there is any way to read them, I would greatly appreciate knowing. Also when updating my machine, I remember ignoring some dependencies for kernel-extra, kdm-branding, sox, and gcc44-fortran; but I did not believe that ignoring these dependencies could cause a broken system so I proceeded with the upgrade.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Guest Additions: Set A Shared Folder In 11.2 Guest

Mar 4, 2010

OpenSUSE installed in a Virtualbox Virtual Machine and I want to set a shared folder.

1 - Set up a Virtual Machine and install OpenSUSE 11.2

2 - Create a shared folder on host (HostFolder)

3 - Setup the shared folder in Virtualbox Via the Virtual Machine details or via Devices > Shared Folders...

4 - Install dependencies for running the Virtualbox installer You need to install the right development kernelpackage for your machinetype (use 'zypper search -i kernel' to see what's installed) sudo zypper make gcc kernel-source kernel-hosttype/default-devel

5 - Run the Virtual Machine and go to Devices > Guest Additions This mounts an iso image in your OpenSUSE guest.

6 - Open a root terminal and run

cd /usr/src/linux
make oldconfig && make prepare && make scripts && make dep
cp ../linux-obj/$HOSTTYPE/default/Module.symvers .
make prepare

* A commenter on previously mentioned thread says this step is unnecessary but it doesn't work without on my system. I suggest trying step 7 first and returning to step 6 if that fails. *

7 - Run ./VirtualboxLinux yourhosttype .run from the mounted iso image.

8 - Create shared folder in OpenSUSE (GuestFolder)

9 - Test with sudo mount -t vboxsf HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder It works? Great! Let's set up the system so it automounts for your regular useraccount instead of root-only access.

10 - Add this line to /etc/fstab HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder vboxsf defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

11 - It works for me but if it still doesn't automount after a reboot; sudo mount -a

Debian :: Getting A Recent Version Of Wine Anymore On Squeeze 64bit

Aug 10, 2011

since lamaresh is not being updated anymore and the wine packages from the official Debian repository are quite old there isn't really much choice for getting a recent version of wine anymore. Since I don't want to use the carbon project or the Mempis repository, as stated here, (at least yet) I have decided to build the package myself. Unfortunately I would like to have a 32bit version but am running a 64bit version of Debian Squeeze. When I run ./configure I get the following message at the end.

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?

General :: Find Duplicate Files And Delete All Except Most Recent Version

I have a directory containing a ton of photos, some of which are duplicates but just with different names. Is there any way in linux to find all the duplicates and remove all of them except the most recent version? I know on Windows there are utilities that will do this through a GUI, but I'm using Linux through the CLI only.

OpenSUSE Install :: Fix Broken 11.1 Xen Guest?

Dec 20, 2010

Disk 1 of my software Linux-raid mirror failed but not before breaking my OpenSuSE 11.1 (KDE 3.5) domU. Dom0 is also 11.1 and is working fine. I have another domU running a Novell fileserver and I think that is OK too.

Both domU systems have dedicated mirrored partitions and it seems the OpenSuSE guest was sitting on some sectors which went bad. The drive is on its way back to Seagate for replacement under warranty and the rest of the system is plugging along on the remaining 750GB Disk 0.

I want to somehow repair SuSE 11.1. The symptoms are that I cannot VNC into it remotely and can only get in via the dom0 virtual manager in YAST. It won't let me use the partition manager via YAST. It also randomly drops the vnc connection with dom0. YAST won't let me manage software either.

Putting the original DVD in the drive and rebooting doesn't do anything for domU guests. It is only visible to dom0.

I don't want to blow the whole thing away and start again anyway.

Is there any way to do an online repair via the shell?

OpenSUSE Install :: Black VNC Screen - Works With Other Guest VM

Jun 24, 2011

I have two instances of OpenSuse 11.4 installed as guests under XenServer. The first one is running KDE and the second LXDE. I can connect via TightVnc to the KDE guest. When connecting to the LXDE guest the client window is black with an X cursor. Both systems have identical Xorg.conf files and identical xinet.d/vnc files. The logs show that xinetd is starting vnc on the LXDE guest. The LXDE process is running, and lxde.log doesn't contain any obvious problems.

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 2.6.31.12-0.1.1.

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.

ASUS P4P800
Intel Pentium 4 HT, 3000 MHz, Frontside 800 MHz/Cache 1 MB
3 GB Ram
AGP nVidia 7600GS/512 MB, nVidia driver 190.53, installed from yast.

OpenSUSE Install :: Guest User Able To Read Home Directory

Sep 17, 2010

I've created a guest user in the group "user." I'd like to limit its read access to its own home directory. However, by navigating through File system>home it's able to read my home directory. I was under the impression that users were limited to their own home directories. Am I missing something, or is there a group I can assign this guest to, to limit its read access to its own home directory? I've read about Pessulus (I use Gnome), but that seems to be geared toward limiting access to applications, not directories.

Ideally, I'd like to create a group that cannot navigate through any files except its own home directory. But it seems that if I try to do that, the guest user will not be able to execute any applications. I've read all the posts (and other forums) I could find about creating such a limited account, but the chroot jail is beyond my understanding. I get the feeling that it's geared toward networks.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Hangs On Boot When Installed As XenServer Guest?

Jun 7, 2011

I created an OpenSUSE 11.4 PV guest on XenServer 5.6, and about half the time, it fails to finish booting. it starts all the services, and fails immediately before it would display the login prompt. I've spent hours googling for this problem, and can't find any reference to it anywhere, meaning that I may be the first to experience it.

has anyone else done OpenSUSE 11.4 on XenServer 5.6 and had this problem? were you able to resolve it, and how?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrading From 11.0 To 11.4?

Aug 1, 2011

I am currently using opensuse 11.0 and want to upgrade to 11.4. Is it possible to do this through Yast? Upgrading across major releases (10.0 -> 11.0) mandated a reinstall. I hope that's not the case for 11.0 -> 11.4. Can I just set the URL in Yast and upgrade? I don't want to end up in a broken state. I noticed that the support for 11.0 is dropped (the download URL is gone). So I am kind of forced to upgrade now ( I was thinking about it for a while but never got around to doing it).

Ubuntu :: Get The Version Of GRUB / GRUB-legacy To Boot Any Recent Windows 64 Beyond XP (Vista Or 7)

Dec 20, 2010

I've been using Linux for over a decade, so no need to worry about the obvious. I'm positive that I have my partitions/install correct. What has me baffled is that Fedora 14, which uses GRUB 0.97 (GRUB legacy) - boots Windows flawlessly every single time on the same hardware, but Ubuntu's (or the upstream Debian's) GRUB legacy do not - even though they are based on the same upstream code from the GNU Savannah servers.

No matter what I've tried I cannot get the Debian or Ubuntu version of GRUB/GRUB-legacy to boot any recent Windows 64 beyond XP (Vista or 7). All that it does is resets the computer when Windows attempts to boot, without an error. GRUB is notoriously difficult to compile, so before I try to compile code from RedHat's archives - any thoughts,experiences, similar issues - whatever?

OpenSUSE Install :: Contemplating On Upgrading To 11.2?

Dec 5, 2009

I have Opensuse 11.1 working perfectly. Is it worth risking screwing up the Grub bootloader or other issues for this upgrade? What are the benefits. Is Zypper the best way to update before doing a live Network upgrade? I think the worst problem I had going from Opensuse 11.0 to 11.1 was that I needed to boot with supergrub to edit and fix the bootloader manually. And also reinstall Samba. Which was better than the 10.3 to 11.0 where I had to scrap the entire install.It also says in the tutorial switching the repositories to oss in the example.but I currently have all pacman repositories. I can barely remember them cause I only switched them all to pacman once based on another suggestion in a post I read. I just need a good backup plan if something goes wrong. Where can I get the best tutorial for the upgrade step by step.
