OpenSUSE Install :: VM Based On 11.3 That Boots Into A Console In Run Level 3

Jun 27, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot 11.4 On Dualboot Nvdia G7600 Based System - Fresh Install "system Console Stolen At Line"

Apr 22, 2011

I tried to update one of my home machines with a fresh install. This is far from new to me so I did not expect any problem. But I was proven wrong. First: did install the system as usual. First anomaly: system blocked during the install process but did restart it flawlessly one I tried to eject the DVD from the player. It needed actually that intervention to retake working. It then went to install and froze during the first system start. I rebooted with failsafe settings, it then correctly configured. I reached a beautiful desktop. I performed the updates from the update repository and I joined the nvidia proprietary driver repository (which updated to the G02 driver).

I then rebooted the machine and now I am in trouble. In normal mode the system (dual boot Opensuse, XP) does not boot at all and freezes immediately after hitting enter as before. In safe mode it goes further but does not reach X anymore. It blocks with the following line statement: "system console stolen at line 266". I then tried "startx". But the system goes into a scrolling loop that does not allow me to read the output. how to get at least the error message of the loop? I read some line passing by that the system might have an X11 authorization problem.

Athlon Phenom X4 905e
Nividea G7600 graphic card
Former system installed and running flawlessly: 11.1

OpenSUSE Install :: Easy Install Of ATI Proprietary Driver In Console

Mar 12, 2011

For those who need or want to install the latest ATI proprietary driver (Catalyst 11.2) right after a fresh 11.4 install - and might not look for solutions in the development subforum.In order to compile the module, I installed the kernel sources and the pattern devel_basis. I normally use most packages in this pattern, so I install it by default from other scripts. While running atiupgrade on a fresh install, I was surprised by the number of packages getting installed with that pattern.Please report if it doesn't work. (like aticonfig initial failed to add a fglrx section for some reason).Take a look at the atiupgrade thread in the development forum: Upgrading ATI driver with atiupgrade.

Ubuntu :: Install A Minimal Gnome Setup Without Any Of The Usually Installed Apps

May 25, 2011

I'm trying to install a minimal Gnome setup without any of the usually installed apps. Last time I tried this it worked fine but that was a couple of years ago (see this thread if you're interested). The closest I've got so far is to install a CLI system from the alternate install CD and then run:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude -y full upgrade
sudo aptitude -y install xorg gdm gnome-core plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo ubuntu-artwork jockey-gtk network-manager synaptic

The problem is that one of these packages (I think that it's gnome-core) installs Epiphany, Evince, Evolution, Gwibber and Ubuntu One which I don't want. how to get a minimal system installed without these apps?

Fedora :: Error Gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 When Choose A Minimal Install Then Add ONLY The Defaults Of The "GNOME Desktop" Package

May 3, 2011

I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:


When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?

Ubuntu :: Minimal 10.10 Install - Can't Install The ATi Video Card Drivers

Oct 15, 2010

I just installed a minimal version of Ubuntu 10.10 (with Openbox) over 10.04. Mainly everything's ok, but I have three problems:

1. When shutting down or rebooting, my speakers make a loud pop. Upon googling around, I found this topic on the Arch forums. Running


Before rebooting/shutting down works. I, however, would like to have this permanently fixed so I don't have to run these commands every time before rebooting/shutting down.

2. I can't install the ATi video card drivers. I downloaded the correct driver (10.9) from the ATi website and made sure I had the packages found here installed. I also made it executable by running


When I run the installer, using


I get this output:


3. When booting, I get a message saying something like "intel_ips can't find i915 symbols, so graphics turbo is disabled". When googling for this, I see this is a kernel related issue. Since I don't have any understandings of kernels, I thought this is a little too high up for me. What does it mean and how can I fix it, as it slows my boot down quite a bit?

General :: Need A Minimal Server Install

Jan 11, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 server on a low spec spare machine ( 500MHz, 128 RAM) but fancy a change. Basically would like a non-GUI, command line only interface, running SSH, Samba and a flavor of FTP. FTP must be set up so users only have access to their home directory and not to any other system dirs. In addition I may want to incorporate anonymous ftp login at some point. Any recommendations for both FTP and minimal server software ?

Mar 4, 2010

I want to install two Linux in my P.C. two partitions mounted to /(one for linux1 e one for linux 2). one partitions mounted to /home (for linux 1 e linux 2 the same time). Two partitions mounted to swap (one for linux1 e one for linux 2). One partitions for BackUP (with the size of 20gb). I have an HD of 80gb. My memory is 256mb.

If i encrypt one partition, what is the difference? I can install two Desktops in the same O.S? I want to install minimum requirements, these programs that come in KDE or Gnome desktop, i don't wanna install they, i can remove from instalation from DVD? I can install Gnome and KDE in the Same time, from the instalation from DVD?

Ubuntu Servers :: Install A Minimal X/windows Manager On Server - Can't Open Display

Sep 18, 2010

trying to set up a very minimal X on my 10.04 64 bit version of Ubuntu running nothing but Open SSH and acting as a firewall/router, making a PPP connection. The reason, is that I want to set up KVM/Qemu and run a virtual machine. The virtual machine will have a graphical environment and will be connected to my TV so that I can watch movies, stream TV etc. using it. So far, I have done the following:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core miwm

When I try to run miwm the error message is:

(null): can't open display.

I have no DISPLAY variable set, but even when I set one myself using export DISPLAY=:0.0 it makes no difference.

OpenSUSE :: Install Gnome Desktop After KDE Install (11.2)

What all do I choose to get the complete Gnome environment? Or is it better (& easier?) to reinstall with a DVD?

Server :: Text Based Server Install - Unable To Get Past Boot Screen

Dec 29, 2010

I am trying to install either Ubuntu or CentOS server in text mode only. The problem I am having is that the hardware that I am trying to install it on has no vga output, I can only connect to it via console cable. I am able to boot from USB CDROm or flash drive but unfortunately since the hardware does not have a gpu (atleast none that I'm aware of) I am unable to get past the boot screen. If someone can point me in the right direction or know where I would be able to download the text install of either OS, that would be awesome.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Into Console - No GUI

Feb 25, 2010

I turned on my laptop at work this morning and it booted up into console mode! Rebooting and booting into Failsafe Mode do nothing...

It reports that it has reached Runlevel 5, but I can't get into the GUI. I have tried to run "startx" which works (Sort of) but I have no mouse or keyboard control. Same goes for if I run "sax2 -r -m 0=radeon" and I have to hard power off the machine to get out of there.

If I try to load the vesa driver, it fails and the SaX.log tells me:

(II) VESA(0): Totl Memory: 256 64KB banks (16384kB)
(EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
(II) UnloadModule: "vesa"


I have renamed the xorg.conf file and rebooted, but come to the same place...

Nothing reports to have failed on bootup, so I have no clue where to start trouble shooting. It does tell me though that there were "Skipped features: boot.cycle". Is this the problem area?
