OpenSUSE Install :: Recent Update Of Os11.3 Left System With Boot Failure / File Not Found

Nov 4, 2010

Toshiba notebook is set up to triple boot win7, mepis 8.5 and os 11.3.Recent update of os11.3 left system with boot failure, "file not found".I booted mepis and used utility to reinstall grub, but no joy.
Appeared to install ok but on reboot, sda5 identified as 'mepis' not os11.3 and would not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

Next, booted live Parted Magic and repaired as per another thread here, but again, no joy.NONE of the systems will boot.Rebooted mepis live cd and reinstalled grub again. Sda5 still identified as mepis and will not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Does Not Recognize ESATA Drive

Jul 30, 2010

I have a working installation of OpenSuse 11.2 on a 300GB eSATA drive, /dev/sdb. I have a 200GB IDE drive, /dev/sda that I use as a data drive. Both drives are accessible to 11.2 and in use.

/Dev/sdb is actually an IDE drive with an eSata adapter since my mother board only has one IDE ribbon input that I use for /dev/sda and the DVDRW drive.

I chose to install OpenSuse 11.3 on /dev/sda in partition sda1. I've installed 32 bit and 64 bit with the same result. I put grub on the the sda1 partition and chainload to it from 11.2 grub. I'm cautious because OpenSuse can be troublesome during installation.

PROBLEM: The installed system will not recognize the second drive /dev/sdb or any of its partitions. It does not show up on /var/log/messages -- it does not exist!

I believe this problem is with 11.3 because 11.2 recognizes both disks. Perhaps support of eSATA drives.

OpenSUSE :: Trashed VMWare Install - Want To Reinstall (OS11.2 X64)

Jun 9, 2010

I am running OpenSuSE 11.2 64bit which was upgraded from 11.1. When I moved to OS 11.2, I found out the hard way about VMWare not working. Then tried to remove it and fix it myself.

When I try to run the config script...
Code:
parents:~ # vmware-config.pl
Unable to find the answer LIBDIR in the installer database
(/etc/vmware/locations). You may want to re-install VMware Server.
Execution aborted.
parents:~ #

When I try to install vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm -i VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed

When I try to upgrade vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm -U VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed

When I try to force install vmware-server
Code:
parents:~ # rpm --force VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm
rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced

Other than rebuilding my box, how can I recover from this?

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE3 Disappeared From Graphical Login Selection (OS11.0)?

Feb 21, 2010

I used KDE3 with 11.0 with some KDE4 apps till I needed some applications from the KDE4 factory tree and mistakenly left the repository active. Next time the online update also updated most of the applications I would rather keep, and as a result the KDE3 disappeared from the KDM login choices. So I have two questions:1. how to enable users to select KDE3 at login (currently I have to select failsafe mode and run startkde manually)2. how to replay back an update I didn't want to have?

Perhaps a combination of the above: can I upgrade to OS11.2 and keep KDE3? (please don't tell me to switch to KDE4, I acknowledge and appreciate the effort and the improvements that KDE4 got, but it's still not a replacement for KDE3 - there are so many simple things which are impossible in the new version)

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Install OS11.2?

Mar 1, 2010

I downloaded the latest stable release from the opensuse download site and when I try to install it, it fails. Basically, the installation reaches 50% and then I get a message : Failed copying image file to hard disk. The hard disk on my PC is 18GB and the installer suggests 10.7 GB for /home and 7.2 GB for /root. I read somewhere that /root needs to be allocated a min of 10 GB, but the installer does not let me change the size /root to more that 7.2 GB. how can I go about installing it?

Debian Installation :: No Boot - Fails To Recognize Drive As Bootable

Sep 22, 2015

Debian 8 "Jessie"
AMD CPU
EFI motherboard

System was working reliably. Moved components into a new case. Now system will not boot. Either gives error that the disk is not bootable or displays the motherboard configuration screen.

I am able to boot Debian with a USB drive and have attempted fixes in "rescue mode".

I confirmed that the system is booting to EFI mode.

I have tried re-installing the grub-efi package and re-creating the Grub config file with update-grub.

When re-installing Grub I receive "Discarding improperly nested partition ..." warnings but the installation succeeds. I have searched this warning message and the forums seem to say that it can be ignored.

I have tried re-setting the motherboard NVRAM using the jumper block.

The computer shows "debian" as a boot choice in addition to the usual raw drive model listing. However, neither of the choices will boot successfully.

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Boot / Unable To Change The Boot Records On The Drive?

Aug 18, 2010

Dual Booting my laptop and unable to change the Boot Records on the drive. Not because I dont know how, but my primary OS will fail to boot(win7).

I have drive partitioned as follows...
sda1 = Win7 system (default install)
sda2 = Win7 Main (default install)
sda3 = swap
sda4 = Extension (I think thats what its called)
sda5 = / (ext4)

What I need is a boot cd or perferably Grub installed on a 256MB Thumb drive with the options to load the installed system from sda5.

OpenSUSE Install :: Create USB Boot Drive (like The Old Boot Floppies)?

Sep 29, 2010

I have a Dell laptop with Windows XP installed, and for various reasons (Help: I borked my WindowsXP boot when installing OpenSUSE 11.3) I can not install a GRUB boot loader to the first hard drive (hd0).

I currently have a second hard drive in this laptop with a perfectly working OpenSUSE 11.3 instance, but no way to boot into it. I remember back in ancient times, a common option with Linux distros was to create a boot floppy to boot into Linux rather than installing GRUB or LILO to MBR. Since this laptop doesn't have a floppy drive I'd like to do the same thing with a USB stick. Is there any way to install GRUB (or something similar) to a USB stick? What I am not asking here is whether I can put a full, bootable Linux instance on a USB drive - I only want a boot loader on USB that launches to the appropriate mount point on (hd1).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 Does Not Recognize ESATA Drive

Jul 31, 2010

I have a working installation of OpenSuse 11.2 on a 300GB eSATA drive, /dev/sdb. Note: /dev/sdb is actually an IDE drive with an eSata adapter since my mother board only has one IDE ribbon input that I use for /dev/sda and the DVDRW drive.I have a 200GB IDE drive, /dev/sda that I use as a data drive.Both drives are accessible to 11.2 and in use.I installed OpenSuse 11.3 on /dev/sda in partition sda1. The same results occur with 32 bit and 64 bit distribution. I have grub for 11.3 on the the sda1 partition and chainload to it from 11.2 grub.

The installed 11.3 system will not recognize the second drive /dev/sdb or any of its partitions. It does not show up on /var/log/messages -- it does not appear to exist.I believe this problem is with 11.3 because 11.2 recognizes both disks. Perhaps it is support of eSATA drives or the IDE to eSATA adapter that has regressed?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: K3B Doesn't Recognize Disc In Drive?

Jul 20, 2010

My K3B doesn't seem to recognise a blank CD in the drive tray.

I'm on OS 11.2, K3B & codecs from 11.2 packman, and 11.2 KDE4 factory (ie kde4.4).

When I put a blank cd in, the kde4 device notifier shows me a blank cd and offers to create a project with k3b. I create a data project & click burn, the burn dialog has a greyed out Burn button, and the media selector dropdown says please insert an empty or appendable medium.

If I eject & re-insert the disc at this point, the device notifier again tells me I've inserted a blank cd, k3b's dialog freezes for a second (seems to notice something has happened) but still does not list my cd and remains as it was before.

k3bsetup reports no problems. Burning from commandline (cdrecord) works fine. Dolphin also knows about the blank cd. I've burned to these discs before with no problems (K3B used to work quite recently, perhaps 4 or 5 weeks ago). Updates have been applied in the meantime.

Ubuntu :: Install - BOOT Into Windows On A Dual Boot Computer - Damn Wireless Router To Recognize?

Jan 6, 2011

it started with rooting my Motorola Droid. I got quite interested in the whole rooting/linux "world". The only problem is, my hands move A LOT faster than my brain does. I'm an "educated novice" at best when it comes to all of this and still learning slowly, but surely. I followed an online tutorial and before I realized quite what i'd done, I had dual installed Ubuntu linux 10.10 on my laptop. ISO'd this, partitioned that and realized....i'm in way over my head. Then I started researching how to just go back in time and get my "safe" windows vista back until I'm ready to make the switch to linux and just ended up getting more confused.

How do I actually BOOT into Windows on a dual boot computer that I apparently just created? How, if need be, do I undo everything I just did in the past few hours and careless tinkering? If I decide to stay with Linux, how do I get my damn wireless router to recognize?

I recently downloaded OpenSUSE 11.3 GNOME for my Netbook. I wrote the image over to my SanDisk 4 GB USB Drive, and it boots on my laptop but not on my ASUS 1004 Netbook. I have already adjusted things like BIOS and Boot Order on the netbook but I am still getting error messages such as "Insert Boot Device" and "Cannot boot from USB". I am trying to make my netbook a dual boot (Windows 7 and SUSE) PC.

OpenSUSE :: Use 'make' Command Gnome On OS11.3?

Oct 21, 2010

At the moment 'make' returns this:

Code:
./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
Makefile.inc:81: *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.

I would do a little more homework, but I already did a lot only to get stuck here, and I need to solve this sooner rather than later.

I have already: installed devel and desktop-devel and given up about 350mb of diskspace to

Code:
zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++

Only to still not have the make function available.
If that install was unecessary, I'm hoping there's a simple uninstall version of that line.

Reading what it's saying, it sounds like I may have all the right kit but it needs a nudge in the direction of the kernel??

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Won't Boot From SATA Drive?

I have just installed opensuse 11.4 and the install fails to boot, grub hangs or gives an error.

I have tried installing grub in MBR and root changed every setting I can find and even downloaded a fresh ISO. As a last resort I changed the machines BOIS settings from SATA to emulate ide, booted as expected but a bit slow.

11.2 and 11.3 worked on this machine with no problems. Am i missing something? I also tried an Ubuntu install and this worked fine!

OpenSUSE :: OS11.2/KDE 4.4: Akonadi Control Center Missing

Feb 18, 2010

I recently upgraded my SuSE 11.2 to KDE4.4 from "download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/". Most things run fine, however the "Akonadi Control Center" does not appear in my KDE "System Settings". Akonadi itself seems to run, at least Contact uses it for the addresses.

I searched for all "akonadi" packages, but I didn't find ones which I do not have installed.

OpenSUSE :: OS11.3 - Get Banshee / Rhythombox To Play M4a - Aac Or Similar?

Aug 2, 2010

Has anyone succeeded in coercing either banshee or rhythmbox to play "restricted" media? On my 11.3 install, I have all the packages from the "one-click" install that takes 49 clicks to find on the new wiki structure ... Playback works correctly in mplayer, gnome-mplayer, and smplayer. VLC works also, ... yawn ....

This is the third consecutive release [COLOR="rgb(0, 0, 0)"](AT BEST)[/COLOR] where this stuff is badly broken! By badly broken, I mean that installing all the needed software and codecs does not appear to be the only requirement. I was able to get it working in 11.1 and 11.2, but only via a hit and miss series of un-install the packages, reinstall one by one ... making offerings of fatty sheep ... reinstalling again .... performing the second part of the ring cycle for the neighbours cat ... remove the codecs again .... install again ... wow ... it's working ... set the entire system to ro ... sing for the cat again!

Does anyone have any insight as to why gstreamer is SOOOOOOO foobared in OpenSUSE? Can anyone articulate a series of steps that will actually get the desired result? BTW, getting this stuff working in FC13 is trivial. Add the fusion repo and install the codecs! I remember a better day in SuSE land when one added the packman repo and installed the codecs ...

OpenSUSE Wireless :: OS11.2 Installed But WLAN (Atheros5212)?

Jan 15, 2010

After been convinced by an exchange student from Nashville I am hosting here in Germany I went into openSuse 11.2. I installed and got openSuse 11.2 to work. I must admit, that I was very impressed. It is more than 10 years that I tried a UNIX system and Linux was quite a cryptic thing. First some additional drivers had to be installed to get MP3 to play. However Internet access was possible with cable but the system failed in recognizing the WLAN.

Here is my system:
HP Compaq nc4000
OpenSuse 11.2 (i586)
KDE 4.3.1 "release 6"
Wireless Network
Atheros AR5212

I have looked through some posts but must admit, that I did not understand much of that. I Am willing to learn, however I do not see myself compiling some drivers. If you could tell me which URL could be used for dloading or installing via Yest, If more sophisticated solutions, than I will have to ask my student to do it for me, but he should learn German and learn more about German lifestile in German Bars.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remove 11.1 From Drive And Restore Boot?

Feb 23, 2010

I have used Ubuntu 8.04 and uprgaded to the new 9.10 both using the gneom desktop. I wanted to work with KDE and SUSE so I bought the Linux Format magazine with the DVD 126 which had SUSE 11.1 with the KDE desk top. I have a Toshiba L455 laptop and had windows 7 on 110 gb and had ubuntu 8.04 on 50 gb and ubuntu 9.10 ob 48 gb. I had ran the installer and it identified both linux systems and I selected to install SUSE in the space allocated to 8.04. It only boots to suse with the option to select windows. It showes 9.10 mixed with suse. I have not used suse. Is there an uninstall that will allow me to start over with the installation after creating a partition first. How can I get 9.10 to boot or how can I recover data from it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Need To Remove 11.1 Only From Dual Boot Drive

I need to keep that Windows drive just the way it is. I have OpenSUSE 11.2 installed in another laptop and want to keep them separate. I don't want to damage the proprietary program on the windows side.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot-up Results In A Read-only Root Drive?

May 20, 2011

Somehow, the wife got her laptop into this situation yesterday. The Windows partition booted normally when selected from GRUB but os 11.3 would boot to a command line login and pretty much everything besides CTRL-D was useless as the root partition was ro.

I booted a live CD and found two a couple of strange things. First, the system clock was reset to the default date/time (2007-xx-xx). I reset that. Second, after correcting the time I ran fsck on the root and home partitions. Both went through with no errors reported but the 20GB root partition took a long,long time to complete while the 80GB home partition went pretty quickly. After doing the above, the system booted normally but both partitions reported running the transaction log as well as forcing fsck where I had just done that. My question is for future reference: how does the system react to a grossly incorrect date/time, especially where all the drive data reports being much later than the reported system time? Would this be the reason for what I saw? I have no idea how the wife managed to reset the system clock, even if the
