I'm trying to migrate from Ubuntu to OpenSUSE but for some reason I can't get the install to work. I've tried installing the GNOME live CD both from a CD and a USB but after I select installation it goes to the loading screen for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and it stays like that till I reboot. Is it a problem with my hardware or something or did something miss-write when I burned the CD/USB?
I have installed opensuse 11.4 64 bit on a dell optiplex 755 with 4 gigs of RAM. Everything seems to be functioning but when I try to install new apps through YAST or zypper, it starts to download the package and it's dependencies, but you see it quickly slow down on the download speed until it gets to nothing, and I get the Abort,Retry prompt. The internet connection is fine. I can install apps from the DVD medium.
I've been trying for awhile to install the restricted formats, but when in the download & and install process, YaST2 pops up saying that such and such RPM has failed. I hit ignore, and it happens again and again to all the other packages, bar the odd few that work.
I just upgrade from 10.3 to 11.4. Everything went fairly smoothly and most things are still working execp nfsserver

while upgrading packages in my ubuntu 10.4 i m receiving following exception

I have an Asus Eee running the factory installation of Linux. Xandros, I think. Whatever it is, it's not letting me update Firefox, so I'm trying to replace it with Ubuntu Netbook. I made a bootable USB stick according to the instructions at [url], and I know the problem isn't with the USB because the Windows machine I'm currently on wants to know if I want to try out Ubuntu or install Ubuntu or learn more, but when I put the stick in the netbook, nothing happens, and when I reboot with the stick in the netbook, nothing happens. The netbook's set to boot from a USB if there's one present; I checked. Is the problem that the stick's only supposed to work on Windows?
I am trying to install debian from a netinst cd. Everything seems to go fine except when the installer needs to connect to a mirror. It doesn't throw up an error, it just hangs a bit and then seems to keep going a lot quicker than i would expect. For example, when installing additional software, it gets stuck downloading the first few files for about 5 mins and then skips ahead and finishes the entire process in about 5 mins.
What I end up with is a very bare bones system when I fist boot into it, without any of the stuff that I had indicated that I wanted to install (ie desktop environment, web server, etc). The Internet connection works and I am able to ping websites including a number of the mirrors I tried during the install. However when using apt-get it just gets stuck trying to connect to the mirror and doesn't go any further.
I just installed Karmic Koala on one of my hard harddrive. The other disk has Windows XP. Previously I had a working dual-boot setup, but after problems with Ubuntu I reinstalled it. On booting, I get the following:
There is no Grub menu which might allow me to drop to a Grub prompt and evaluate. This occurs whether I boot with the Ubuntu harddrive or re-set the BIOS to boot with the Windows harddrive. If I boot with a LiveCD, I see that both my Ubuntu and Windows harddrives exist and are readable; the Ubuntu was indeed wiped clean and reinstalled; the issue is with the boot process. How can I set this up to boot?
It's been quite a run-around trying to get the Nvidia driver working.I have already followed a lot of instructions, at least onceI still get caught at "the pre-install script failed". When I looked at the script itself, it says it's "triggering an error status to prevent the installer from overwriting ubuntu's nvdia packages."Some say this script can be ignored, but it seems to be the only thing keeping my install from working.Some say install from root prompt, some say GUI OK. Some say d/l from NVIDIA, some from repository. I have been doing root, init 3, removing old drivers, etc..
I really like qBittorrent.I would really love it if it worked in the unity desktop.There's a few issues with this--
1. No icon in system tray.
2. No access to latest version in software center.
I've looked around in the forums and tried to "whitelist" all apps--I don't know what that means and don't personally understand why ALL apps weren't whitelisted in the first place.That was unsuccessful.
I am trying to install Debian wheezy 7.6 stable, i made a bootable pen drive with netinst but when it arrives the select and install software part i got a error that i cant know what error is because it does not show its name. Just appear a red screen saying that a part in installation fails: Select and install software. I guess that this error is when it is installing tasksel.
I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.
I downloaded:- i2400m firmware 1.5.0 WiMAX Tools 1.4.5 WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2
According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.
Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was
But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is
I didn't get it. Am I missing any package or something?
Back in 2005 somebody wrote PySDM for Ubuntu. I was just looking to see if we @ openSUSE had such a handy tool, and I can't find any. Nor is PySDM found in WebPIN. Am I missing something in Yast (to edit fstab)? Is there some reason I don't want to use PySDM (that I don't know)?
on my Netbook i run Opensuse 11.4, it works fine until a couple Days. Since there more and more Apps wont start anymore. For example Dolphin, Yast, Ocular and so on... so better say´d, only Thunderbird and Firefox still running. I dont get any Error Messages or something like this, when i start a Application there just pop´s the Program Bar in the Start Menu and then after that (normally the Window of the Program would be shown) it just disappears. Dumb on that is, that i even cant backup my Data, because Dolphin dont show up anymore.
i was compiling and installing the new linux kernel for my debian box, i ran the commands
# make oldconfig # make clean # make DEB_PKGVERSION=custom.3.0 deb-pkg # cd .. # dpkg -i *.deb
i tried to install the new kernel which was made into debian packages ready to be installed and after i ran that last command this is what came up
dpkg: error processing linux-firmware-image_custom.3.0_amd64.deb (--install): package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386) dpkg: error processing linux-headers-3.0.3_custom.3.0_amd64.deb (--install): package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386)
where do i make this work, my architecture is an amd64 but for some reason it's only going to install this kernel on a i386 system.
right after updating suse 11.2 via wlan to 11.3 i could not connect to my WPA2 secured Wlan anymore. looking in dmesg i found:
Code: wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:24:01:e7:94:75 by local choice (reason=3) i found a lot of bugs messages relating to this, including the "fix" removing the network manger. i did remove it, but it did not help. i also removed wpa2 and tried with no encryption, but that showed more errors. so i tried 11.1 live-cd and it worked flawlessly. then i tried kernel 2.6.35-rc3-6-pae from the factory repo. then, i got sick of reading without finding a bugfix and i edited the kernel source myself (no, not dangerous, and yes i knew what i was doing). i commented out line 2963 to 2966 in rivers/net/wireless/hostap/hostap_ioctl.c . well, that worked for the deauthenticating issue, but now i have 40% to 60% package loss in my wlan. again i tried my 11.1 live-cd and it still worked. then i compiled kernel 2.6.37 vanilla from kernel.org, but that, too,
I used to have a dual boot with Windows Vista, 32bit & Ubuntun 10.04, 32 bit, and it worked well. I recently installed Windows 7, 64bit in my PC, and tried to installed ubuntu 10.10, but for some reason Window 7 stops the ubuntu 10.10 installation. Can it possibly be a compatibility issue?

I have been upgrading (upgrade from 11.3 then fresh install to 11.4) and as usual with Broadcom I have problems. On 11,3 I used the Pacman STA and was working fine. for 11.4, I suppose that my BCM4312 will be supported after installing the b43 driver. It actually woks, few seconds (but never had time to verify) Some background
lspci gives 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) Using KDE network manager I can see the wifi AP around, including mine, the problem is when I wan to connect, using WPA2 (TKIP + EAS), I have the right password (I can connect from another station), but when I try here it keeps coming back asking from password .. (I use the kwallet, but that should be out of scope) .. Basically it always fails..
I have come to like Ubuntu so much that I don't want Windows 7 anymore. I don't know if I should keep it because I have Microsoft Office 2010 Enterprise Edition and Adobe Master Collection CS5 as well. I'm not sure how I can replace those programs with different ones in Ubuntu.If there is any other reason to why I should keep Windows 7,
I have just installed (after a series of crashes during the install) Fedora 15. I also have Ubuntu Natty installed and use it primarily but I wanted to reach out and try new distros.I've wanted to try Fedora and finally got enough nerve to try. Installing it crashed for no apparent reason several times.ehow it installed and booted right to Fedora.However, when finally figuring out how to run the updates, I began to have the same problem.(Someone elsewhere suggested trying to update through command line--which I did finally though I had a few crashes doing this).
Now I am logging in and then it will just inadvertently crash. I could be in firefox, or using terminal, etc. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to why this is happening and I feel frustrated. I really want to test out Fedora (it looks so nice!) but can't manage to stay afloat more than a few minutes. I might also mention that this does not happen in Ubuntu at all so I can't account for the issues. I have much to learn but I feel a bit intimidated by Fedora because it's so new to me.
After installing QtCurve 1.8-41 from software.opensuse (I've been playing around with themes), whenever I try to boot my computer, it gets to stage 1 of loading (the less colorful splash screen), and about halfway through loading that, the screen goes black and a box in the top left corner says: "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation". I'm then taken to failsafe, where I login. When I try to run kdeinit4 from the command line, I get this error:
kdeinit 4: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtSvg.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN14QObjectPrivate15checkWindowRoleEv.
I've tried uninstalling through zypper, but it can never find the package I specify. I'm on 11.3.
I am attempting to install Ubuntu 64-bit and it keeps failing. This is my first 64-bit system, and have not had problems with installing x86 Ubuntu in the past. When the full install failed, I tried installing it within Windows and that also failed. I've attached the log from that attempt in this post (had to trim it down to fit the file limit though). I don't know if these are the same errors I was getting on full install as I didn't write those errors down...I can try again and post them if needed though.
I've tried to upgrade my FC8 on Presario F700 series laptop to FC 10 and facing some issues. I've a live CD (i386). Initially i tried upgrading FC 8 to FC 10 and installation was stuck around 30% completion saying its unable to fins libdbi-0.8.3-1.fc9.i386.rpm. Then I tried to install FC 10 from scratch as system went to inconsistent state and faced two issues with two different setup options -
1) when i selected necessary software to be installed for office use and development, it failed after installing 20% saying libgnomeui-devel-2.24.0-2.fc10.i386.rpm
2) i then opted for for software to be installed for office use (default option) then it failed after installing around 50% saying libXrandr-1.2.3-1.fc10.i386.rpm
im trying to understand if this is a problem due to my laptop configuration (AMD Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core) or due to issue with the live CD.
