OpenSUSE Install :: Lost Admin (Root) Privilege Password

Feb 28, 2011

I'm new to Linux (had some basic Unix experience in 1995 era). (Teenager) gave me HP2133 mini notebook running SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. Everything checks good (hardware and software), even wireless networking. Problem is she apparently created Admin/root password but says cannot remember. I cannot even set correct date time... yast is asking for root privilege:
Command: /sbin/yast2 time
Is there anything I can do to re-establish administrator privilege?

Ubuntu :: Delete 'root' And 'lost+found' Directories?

Sep 23, 2010

I discovered two folders marked with a cross in my root:

- root
- lost+found

And when I'm trying to reinstall a newer version of Netbeans, 6.9.1. it claims that there is already something running in 'root folder "The installer lock file exists at /root/.nbifile/.nbillock"

The question is - is those folders are needed for Ubuntu working? -If not how to delete them? And one more question - how to delete a programme from the 'Applcations-Programming'? I tried to do that via 'System-Preferencies-Main Menu' and tried to delete a previous version of Netbeans, but it didn't work, - nothing happens, the previous version is still there, so I have two ones - 6.9.1 and 6.9.

OpenSUSE Network :: [smb] Lost Access To Shared Directory?

Mar 24, 2010

Unfortunately I haven't been able to figure out yet how to share specific directories only, so I set up my Samba server to share users' home directories (which is not a security issue here since the only possible client is my other machine). My user's home directory contains a symlinked directory on another hard drive partition, which I had to explicitly share to be able to access it from the other machine. This setup has been working for months now, but for a reason that escapes me at the moment it stopped working today, presumably after samba got updated from 3.4.2- to 3.4.3-3.2.1.

The error message on the client (Windows XP/SP3) for this one above mentioned directory, and for this directory alone, is "Access denied"; I can access all other directories fine.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Install & Run Clamav On 11.3 / Kde4.5.2

Oct 18, 2010

I find it incredible that installing and running reputable software such as Clamav on my system should be a major problem. I have openSUSE 11.3 with kde 4.5.2 desktop and when I try and install clamav using Yast the files are downloaded into old kde3 directory and nothing works.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE4 On 11.3 Does Not Start

Aug 14, 2011

My KDE4 stopped booting after installing the last (11.7) ATI driver and uninstalling it later (display turned off at all while booting).
I get a login screen, though. When I enter my password and press ENTER, it tries to start but returns to the login screen in a couple of seconds. Here's a snippet from kdm.log:

OpenSUSE Install :: KDM: Cannot Apply New Theme On Kde4.4?

Feb 23, 2011

I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.

I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.

I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.

I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.

So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.

Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!

OpenSUSE Install :: Privoxy To Start Up During Boot On 11.3 Kde4?

Aug 23, 2010

I am completely fed up trying to do it. I had no problems with 11.0. It refuses to start up during boot like tor. I added tor to the kde start menu and it works just fine after boot. Privoxy refuses to start up during boot. I have to go into SU mode in terminal, then it works. I need to be able to start Privoxy the same way. I tried everything from chown / chmod commands, and it made no difference. I have it set for 777, and my name along with root. I also added the group privoxy to my user ID. I need the computer to disregard that it is a root program.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Fails For Normal User In 11.3 - KDE4

Oct 4, 2010

I can't log into my normal user account at bootup; it just bounces back to the login screen.

However, I can log into the user's terminal window from the root account.

I've tried deleting and re-creating the user, but to no avail.

Is there some special file that I could delete before re-creating the user?

The one that holds the (corrupted) authentication data, perhaps?

Debian Installation :: KDE4 On Lenny: A Solution Might Have Been Found?

Feb 15, 2010

I've done some searches on here and can't seem to find anyone making any mention of this one site I found. Has anyone used the Debian Lenny KDE32 images from this site?[URL].. I downloaded it and it works GREAT! I think the solution for us poor Lenny holdouts might have been found. Especially those who have ati radeon cards. As background. I am running a Radeon 9000 pro agp card. I've been looking for SOME way to get KDE4 that works. Kubuntu, forget it. Mandriva was close but I'd miss apt too much. I was thinking of trying backports. But it seems these guys have already done the work. I downloaded their Lenny KDE32 image and burned it. Be aware, this is a DVD image, not a cd image. At 786megs it won't fit on a cd. But I put it on a dvd and it worked fine. Booted up to a nice clean running KDE4 on a lenny system. I still have some tinkering if I install it (blacklist pcspeaker for example, and get audio cd's to play) But here is my catch. I brought up the screensaver and chose my favorite: Solar winds. It a Gl screensaver, so 3d has to be working good.

Fedora Installation :: Install Ok - But Boot Failed - No Root Device Found

Nov 21, 2010

I have 2 Debian OS's and wanted to put Fedora next to it.

Install went ok, but after rebooting it says: "No root device found. Boot has failed, sleeping forever."

During install from the live CD I didn't "v" the boot (efi or something?) because I thought Grub would take care of everything.

Should I just reinstall again and choose the Fedora bootloader? Won't it mess up Grub?
