OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Up The System - Is This An Impossible Task?

Aug 11, 2010

Upon boot up, I get lots of new lines added to log files in /var/log concerning apparent problems during boot up. The boot sequence does attempt to show the failure or success during each step as it transitions to the final run level, but is there a good manual or procedure on how to fix each transition, so as to cut down on the amount of pesky warning or error messages?

I am a bit concerned that running a system with warning messages is a bit like running a car low on oil. In the past the goal was to have a perfectly running linux system that came up all the way, and yes, I have seen such. This meant knowing how kernel things work, etc, but still, I would think we would want to pay attention to such things as

[ 1127.997470] ALSA usbaudio.c:1274: 2:1:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x1
[ 894.166132] isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16

and others and work to bring them to a minimum.

Right now I am working on things piecemeal as I go along, and it will take a lot of time.

I didn't dump the 10K's of log files into this message forum, in case someone asks to see the details, but I am just striving to have the system come up clean, and not with a message like:

Warning: Skipped 98 probes

(whatever that means?? did the kernel just mean that it knew that it is supposed to check 98 things but failed? or that 98 things should have gotten checked but didn't?)

Ubuntu :: Impossible To Use Clean Install Kubuntu - ATI Driver

Jun 7, 2010

Currently i'm using a HP 6735b laptop. Everything is fine just one problem which is ATI driver. This one gave me:

1. Impossible to start up Kubuntu, they show welcome screen and stuck for century. LiveCD version of Kubuntu and KDE environment via Ubuntu is fine (since i already installed ATI driver).

2. Without ATI driver, whenever i unplug my A/C power the computer will be frozen. After installed driver everything will be fine.

What kind of problem is that, compatible with ATI or serious bug. Karmic Koala 9.10 is absolutely perfect.

Apr 27, 2011

I did a fresh install of SuSE 11.4 (WIN7 TOO) and changed my Larger HD1 to the first HD.

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install To Repair System?

Jan 21, 2010

I was trying to upgrade to 11.2 from 11.1 by upgrading the OS online. However my internet connection failed and the upgrade has now messed up my system. I have a dual-boot system with Windows XP and I'm wondering if it would be OK in getting the DVD and selecting update? Or do I have to change the boot log etc?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Log In File-system Is Full / Clean Up Any Unnecessary Files?

Nov 24, 2010

I can't login due to my file-system being full. I found the main area with the large usage. Var/log is taking 99.5% of my var folder. On a full file-system scan Var/log is taking up 85% of disk use. File-system capacity is 36 gig. Temp is cleared after each boot.

What can I do to clean up any unnecessary files. I can only boot in safe mode and have limited navigation skills. To get scan results I booted a live-disc.

Opensuse 11.2 gnome 64 bit.

Fedora :: First Yum Update On Clean Install Crashes System

Apr 15, 2010

I was using Fedora 9 until about 1 month ago when my hard drive crashed. I installed F12 on a new hard drive last week. Due to some other software issues (empathy), I decided I should try to get the latest updates. PackageKit kept giving errors and would not update. So, I researched and found that I needed to run " su -c 'yum update' " for the first update then PackageKit would work. I did this and after about an hour of updating, the screen went black. Nothing you can do at that point but hard reboot.

When I did that, I could only get a "GRUB" command line. I played with it for a minute but really I have no idea what to do with GRUB cmd (beyond my experience level). So I decided to wipe it out and reinstall F12. I did that, and was just working thru the updates again. Same thing happened, went to black screen. I have not rebooted it yet, but Im sure when I do, it will be GRUB again. What in the world am I supposed to do with this? I am not a Linux star, but I have been using it for around 8 years now with various distros, so I would say I have at least moderate experience.

Ubuntu :: Clean 10.10 Install Successful - But System Sometimes Freezes

Oct 20, 2010

After 8 years of using Mac, which I do enjoy, I decided to jump into the open source community. So I bought a brand new Thinkpad SL510 and installed Ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit) using the entire disk, thus erasing Windows.

The installation process was very easy and the system generally works great. It's fast and I love the interface.

Just encountered one annoying issue which I don't think I should be confronted with, using a freshly installed Unix-based OS: a few times, the system entirely froze. I couldn't move the mouse pointer anymore, the keyboard no longer responded (eg. when hitting Shift Lock the light didn't come on). Waited for several minutes but nothing happened at all. So I had to turn off the computer by pressing and holding the power button.

This has only happened a few times so far, but a few times too many. When it happened, I only had Firefox open, or Firefox and Twinkle. The last time it happened, the screen colours gradually went gray before everything came to a halt.

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install Without CD - ISO File On System

Apr 16, 2011

I want to perform a clean install on my machine - it's had loads of rubbish installed, and is a real mess. Trouble is, while I have downloaded the ISO file, I do not have any blank CDs. Is there a way to mount the ISO and run the installer from within a running system? Probably not, but I thought I'd ask in case I missed something.

OpenSUSE Install :: Faulty Task Bar After Upgrading To 11.3?

Jul 24, 2010

I upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3 My task bar looks a little bit "strange" after the upgrade Here you can find out how it looks like [URL] You can see the American flag that (left) that appears a little bit strange as well as at the right side the kwallet icon to be over the time. As I expand the taskbar to the left and then reduce it to the right these strange things keep happening not to the same icons all the time but to some of them.

OpenSUSE Install :: Two Boot Flags Showing On Clean Install?

Oct 24, 2010

There are several posts here about not being able to boot without the install disk, which is also my case. I imagine the solution for me should be easy, because I only have a single installed OS on this machine, which is a MacBook Pro 2.1. Here's the result of fdisk -l:

Code:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

[Code]...

Partition table entries are not in disk order sda4 is a partition that did not appear in the partition overview when I installed the operating system. I thought I'd look for help here while I continue to research the problem myself.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Clean Install Will Not Boot Past Splash?

May 18, 2011

I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean 11.2 Install Afterwards Hang On Load?

Jun 6, 2010

Okay I did a clean network install on 11.2 on my test machine.Old gateway box but it had min requirements. It will load completely into failsafe mode but will not complete a normal boot option.The default Green background images comes up and the cursor comes up, but I let it sit for 30 minutes and nothing. I did a hard reboot, still hung on cursor and green back ground. Booted again but this time choose failsafe, boot up completely. Am I doing something wrong? I have installed many many version of Linux in the past never had a problem like.

OpenSUSE Install :: LVM Drive Not Showing Up In Clean 11.4 Install?

Jun 11, 2011

so excuse me if I don't use the correct terminology, but what I have are two USB external hard drives joined into one drive using LVM.I originally set this up using 11.2 and then used it for months on a system with 11.1. The LVM drive would show up in the file system as /dev/mapper/Media-Media.I then upgraded that system from 11.1 to 11.4 using a clean install and a "minimal server" selection. Now, the LVM doesn't show up anywhere. In the YaST disk partitioner, it shows a "/dev/Media" as being of the type LVM2 Media with no logical volumes

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Of 11.4 Goes Well But After Rebooting - X Does Not Start?

Apr 15, 2011

I have recently done clean installs of 11.4 on two computers and then done clean re-installs but still have the same problem. Each time, the install was without flaw and I could download the updates, when offered, in the install process. At the end of the install I can log into KDE and everything works. However, after shutting down, on reboot, I only get a command line login. I can either login and run startx or use su and do init 3 followed by init 5. This tells me I am getting to runlevel 5 but X isn't starting. Either of those approaches gives me the KDE login. However, after that I have to manually start the network in YAST. I also think I had had to restart CUPS but I have only got as far as installing a printer once so I can't be absolutely sure that happened. As I indicate, this is fully reproducible. Anyone give me a clue as to what is going on?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clean Install Of 11.2 On Thinkpad

Dec 16, 2009

I did try to do an update from 11.1, but that killed the thing dead, no x, no kde, just a command line log in.So clean install, leave /home alone and we seem to be firing on all cylinders, except.Hopeless networkmanager still will not connect, it hasn't in any version of K4, truly, from my point of view, an embarrassment as the default network connector. But, trying to re-install WICD I have run into a snag.When I click on one click in Webpin, it asked if it should install it, Oh yes please, asks for the su password and. opens konqueror with the background description of the RPM. But will not install. I tried downloading the RPM and it gives me a bit of a list of dependency problems. None of which I can seem to resolve through the usual repos.Also in the 11.2 install I have been defaulted to the "desktop" kernel, when I used to have a PAE, should I change the kernel to PAE?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Impossible To Eject Any Music CD Or DVD

Apart from KsCD and CD Player, (both of which are pretty good, but very basic), I have found it impossible to eject any music CD or DVD on any of the following:

Amarok
JuK
Media Kaffeine
MPlayer and
SMPlayer,

there does not seem to be any button, command or whatever to get the CD or DVD out of the drive, so now find that only way, is to stop player and then to open CD Player and use the eject button there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Update On Laptop - Error "Can't Install 'xubuntu-desktop' It Was Impossible To Install A Required Package"

Oct 6, 2010

I downloaded the 6.06 version of xubuntu because i have a laptop that doesnt support high graphics mode, and i wasnt able to figure out how to get it to run in low graphics mode. i figured that i would get a version from a while back, and then update it up to the current version. now, to the problem. I was able to upgrade 6.10, but now it says Ubuntu version 8.04 available, so i tried to update it. it gets most of the way through the part where it says calculating or something like that, and then it says: "Can't install 'xubuntu-desktop' It was impossible to install a required package. Please report this as a bug." with an option that says close at the bottom. when i click close another window pops up that says: Could not calculate the upgrade A unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade. This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bugreport. Then the window just closes... anything that i could do to get rid of this problem? EDIT: Is there any way to update directly from an .iso file on the desktop?

Ubuntu Installation :: Task Manager Or Task Bar, Keeps Changing Length?

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.
