I just finished a brand new install of 11.2 on a workstation and it can't connect to the internet at all. I can ping Google and I can ping devices on my local network but I can't browse any web pages. I am able to ping the workstation with my windows 7 workstation. I tried disabling the firewall. I have it set to use DHCP.
I can connect to google via IP. So it appears to be a DNS type issue, is there some settings I am missing?
I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.
I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.
I'm newbie to opensuse. I want to install rdesktop to connect windows system from opensuse linux system. I have downloaded rdesktop rpm from net and installed with YAST. Error occured, the error states that "rdesktop cannot be install due to missing dependency". Now what to do to install rdesktop.? Is there any way other than rdesktop to connect windows system from opensuse?
I have a non-broadcast network (ad-hoc?) that I attempt to connect to via openSUSE 11.2 running off live USB. It does nothing. It never connects and when I view it with available networks it just shows the name and "insecure" (even though it's WPA2Personal) and no percentage.How do I get wireless to work?
A network client computer gets ip address from dhcp server, loads initrd and failed on Loading Istallation System stage 4 or 5. If I try to continue installation in manual mode I get an error net_activate: ifconfig eth0 up failed I tryed network cards from different vendors it did not help. Ubuntu linux installs successfully in current environment.
I wanted to avoid having to use my CDs, DVDs weren't an option, and I didn't have very large usb sticks. It seemed my only option for installing openSUSE onto my laptop was with some sort of network install/boot.
I ended up finding this really cool service, netboot.me. What you can do is download a very small image (<1MB) for a floppy, USB stick, or CD, and then boot off of it. Then you can either install pre-defined distros over the network (straight from the distro's servers), or you can make an account (by connecting your google account), and then make your own configuration. I managed to make a configuration for openSUSE 11.4, and I was able to completely install it, via only using one floppy disk and the internet!
My first step in the process was to download the floppy image. Since I was on a windows computer, I then downloaded rawwrite for windows, and I wrote the image straight to the floppy. After that, I restarted the computer and booted from the floppy. It loaded the image, then asked me to press a key or wait for 3 seconds. In order to boot from my configuration, this was the point where I had to press a key, and then choose the option of loading the custom configuration. The configuration I made has an ID of 434001 (which anyone is free to use). Unfortunately, according to their community, the gPXE "network stack" isn't very optimizied, so the initial two downloads took awhile (my speed was locked at 65 kB/s.)
It then began booting in the installation environment, which took about 15 minutes, although download speeds were now back at normal, faster speeds. I configured my installation, and let the package downloading begin!
Does anyone know how to revert network speeds to those attained with openSUSE11.2-64? On openSUSE11.2-64 the reported network download speed was,
max : 420 kB/s ave : ~ 200 kB/s
After upgrade to openSUSE 11.3-64 the figures dropped to about 25% of the previous values. After upgrade to KDE 4.5 and plasmoid-networkmanagement the initial values did not change but the average value dropped after about 30 seconds to ~ 15 kB/s. Approach so far:
1. The motherboard's (A780GM-LE) build in LAN (Realtek RLT8111DL) was originally detected by openSUSE 11.3 as the Realtek RLT8169 and kernel module r8169 installed. This was replaced by the latest module r8168-8.019.00 from Realtek.
2. After kernel update to Linux 184.108.40.206-0.1-desktop x86_64 the plasmoid-networkmanagement was replace by NetworkManager-kde4. This improved flow with,
I install from openSUSE-11.3-NET-x86_64.iso. Installation was succesfull, but after install all packet on test internet / update was error. And after log in in installed system internet not work. I use router with DHCP
I have an opensuse 11.3 install which I want to set up as a network boot server to install Solaris 10 on a Sun Ultra 10 client. According to what I've read, this requires rarpd and tftpd which I've set up on opensuse, but also bootparamd which I can't find for 11.3. It seems it was last included with opensuse 9.2. Does anyone know if it's available, if I could use the suse 9.2 version, or any alternative?
I installed OpenSuse 11.04. To connect to the Internet, I use the script which connects to my Internet provider:
linux-aghn:/home/alex # cable-start Using interface ppp0 Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/4 PAP authentication succeeded
At this stage in another Linux distribution I am connected. In OpenSuse, when I start Firefox, it cannot connect. The problem is not in the browser, Software Management program also reports that connection is not available. ping 220.127.116.11 is successful. I tried to disable Firewall - doesn't help.
I first tried an upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 and lost Internet Access, so i re-loaded 11.4 from scratch on clean partitions.
I am connected to my wireless WPA2/PSK connection, have an IP, am able to see the network.
I turned off and disabled the SUSE firewall.
I tried setting Firefox proxy settings to auto and to none, i dont use proxy.
I am currently posting this through an SSH connection to my 11.1 server from the new install of 11.4 on a Dell latitude D600 laptop (not using the on-board Broadcomm that is an issue for a later date).
I'm trying to do a network installation of opensuse 11.2 on my ASUS eee 701.
- I've downloaded the ISO image, verified it with md5sum, and burned it to CD. - I've used a live CD and fdisk to create a new partition table on the internal SSD (/dev/sda) and a single primary partition of type 83. - I've booted the CD, changed the language to English[UK], and continued.
The installer then told me that there's not enough memory for a graphical installation. This is weird because my ASUS has 1MB of memory and works fine with a live CD, but it's not much of a problem because I'm comfortable with text-based installation.
The real problem is that the installer froze on the next screen while "searching for Linux partitions". I aborted after about 10 minutes of inactivity.
I don't really want to download the entire DVD because I've only got 4GB of SSD and want to set up a trimmed-down system.
I've just installed openSUSE 11.2, one problem is suse didn't find an internet connection when suse performed the ..."automatic system configuration. This routine attempts to configure your network and Internet access and sets up your hardware"... Where can I manually configure the network. I'm in the network folder now no luck. I've been using every documentation I could find Novell Documentation and DVD installation/11.2 - openSUSE Network Status: Unknown network status
Just installed 11.3 kde. When running the live cd both wireless and ethernet devices appeared in the network connections manager utility. I even connected to a wireless AP.I just booted up for the first time and none of these devices are available. There is no network manager icon in the system tray, and when the network manager utility is maually opened the only connection type i can select is vpn.I know that opensuse should be able to recognize these devices since they were available and working via the live cd, so can anyone help me restore them?
One extra piece of info, is that I am sharing a home directory with a gnome ubuntu install. there were a few minor issues i dealt with initially, but i didnt need to change this user's UID like I have had to do in the past so that's good. Each time i open a terminal I get two pieces of output assuming from the bash startup saying something like.URL...I highly doubt that these problems are related, but figured I'd post. Also if someone knows the solution to that as well, that would save me a bit of googling.
I have opensusu 11.3 on my laptop and windows7 on first desktop, and XP on second desktop. Also, on my opensuse laptop I have installed XP as virtual OS in vmware player.I have setup samba using this guide that was given to me on this forum.From opensuse laptop I can see my Win 7 desktop, but cant log in. I enter Win 7 username and password, but it doesn't let me in.
Now, when I start XP trough vmware I can see win 7 desktop and connect it with username and password and browse my shares. On laptop, file sharing works both ways between host opensuse ang guest XP.On second desktop computer with XP, and I can connect to it from opensuse laptop normally.
I successfully booted OpenSuse 11.2 from DVD. But I could not configure my wireless internet connection. YAST said it couldn't configure it because something else was controlling that (Network Manager? something like that)How can I configure this. Related issue. When booting from DVD is there a way to save configuration settings so I don't have to start from scratch the next time I boot from DVD?
I have configured OpenSuSE 11.1 in VirtualBox and Networking was working fine and I was able to access network. Yesterday I recieved update notification from SuSE and updated machine. Now after restart eth0 is not comming up. In Hardware profile I can see Network Card but it is not configured automatically. I don't know how to configure it. Virtualbox Networking was working before latest update and just tried in other virtual machines.
Just installed 11.2 (32bit)(again) and the same error happens as on the previous 11.2 install that the (cable)network cannot be found after a hibernate (to disk). There is no problem after a fresh start. (the DVD checksum is correct)
Some other installation hickups (just for info) Starting a direct installation from the DVD No mouse or keyboard connection (I had to reset and use the live session) from the live session install. the partitions are re-mounted by Suse during installationsetup after I unmounted them to be formatted.
I'm installing 11.4 on a late-2010 Macbook Air. I've forgotten my USB ethernet adapter, although I'm not sure if it would even work in OpenSUSE. Is there a way I can install packages manually (via USB drive) to get wireless working?
I have problem after install opensuse 11.2 on lenovo R61. I have no connection to internet, although on liveCD (opensuse 11.2) is internet connection functional. In ubuntu or opensuse 11.1 was all OK, connection was functional.- at DSL Configuration / Ethernet Card is Unknown device- in hardware is Card: 82566MC Gigabit Network Connection (eth0)- modprobe wl write it FATAL: Module wl not found.
I need some help install and configure my vnc session at my Opensuse.
Right now I have installed nx client which works fine and is listening on port 5901.
I also want vnc to use when I want to check exactly what is going on my work's computer (when I go home)
I am reading the tutorial here:
And I would like to ask you the following
For VNC client connection remember to open ports 5901-> in the firewall. (1 port/Xsession.) nxserver is listening to 5901. How to configure vnc to listen to 5902.
2. The guide also refers that
Here we "Prestart" vnc sessions for specific users, therefore no login screen is presented. This uses more resources as the VNC Session is running even when no client is connected to the session watching it. But there in lies it's advantage, "watching a session" and "using a session" are not the same thing! This method is very usefull for starting long running programs before going home. Once home you can re-connect to the session and see how things are going.
I get "unable to open file: /etc/samba/dhcp.conf" messages in /var/log/samba/log.* worked perfectly fine in 11.3. permissions are 755 on /etc/samba and all files are 644 or 600 in the directory. Starting manually gives same result. My 11.2 and 11.3 machines continue to work. this is a weird one and I don't see any posts relating to this. For other uses, the machine seems ok.
