The rsync module "opensuse-full" which worked well so far seems currently broken. It tries to mirror a huge number of additional stuff (factory?) but fails with "permission denied". Any place where I could report this?Command:

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot - After Installing New Graphics Drivers OpenSUSE 11.4

Jul 14, 2011

I have installed openSUSE 11.4, and I really like it compared to other linux versions I've tried, but I find it requires a bit more linux know-how.

Being fairly new to linux, it has been quite the effort to learn but I started getting the hang of things via online support and such. Lately I've been having some problems.

I need linux to run a TCAD program, and it requires some openGL functionality and was giving me errors when I tried entering the software related modeling GUI.

Anyhow, I thought it had to do with my graphics drivers, so I decided to update them via ATI proprietary driver. After doing this, the system booted me into the console rather than X.

I tried numerous online guides on how to fix the issues, by running all sorts of boot commands (nomodset), and I read the graphics driver theory, as well as trouble shooting ATI graphics.

In the process, I also installed a radeonhd-xorg11-something through YAST, and that caused a black screen altogether upon boot. I managed to boot into failsafe with x, and from there I removed it via YAST, however this did not resolve issues. I also deleted any xorg.cionf files in hopes that the system will default back to the radeon driver.

As it stands right now, I can only boot into my system via failsafe mode. I'm keeping the unit off for now as it's probably tired from all the hard reboots I had to do . If someone can help me resolve this issue, I can turn it on and enter any commands required, such as finding out the graphics card, the kernel, the driver currently running, etc and I can post it here.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Into Ubuntu After Installing 11.2

Apr 18, 2010

I've been having trouble booting into Ubuntu 9.10 after installing OpenSUSE 11.2. When I installed it, the opensuse setup detected the partition ubuntu was installed on and added it to the grub menu. I also have windows vista and windows 7 installed and both boot up just fine from the opensuse grub boot menu. The ubuntu installation that i have was an upgrade from 9.04 so I am not using grub2 in that installation.

System Info:
Amd Phenom II X4 810 2.6ghz
4 gb ram
Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit
OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit

Install :: Can't Boot Ubuntu After Installing OpenSUSE / Solve It?

Jan 3, 2010

I bought a Linux magazine as a Christmas present attached to it was a 8GB distro-loaded disc sporting Ubuntu 9.10 (which is already on my system,) Mandriver, and open-SUSE 11.2 which I decided to install.
Problem is, I can't get into Ubuntu anymore, where all my mail music ect is.

Ubuntu is listed with vista in window 2 of open-suse grub. When I try to boot Ubuntu I get an earlier kernel splash which is somewhat magnified and busybox v1.1.3. Vista boots OK.

Would un installing openSUSE put things back as they were? I can learn about open-SUSE using the DVD

OpenSUSE Install :: Borked My WindowsXP Boot When Installing 11.3

Sep 28, 2010

I have an existing WinXP install on the main drive (/dev/sda) of a Dell laptop. I installed Suse on the second (caddy tray) drive and didn't touch the existing windows partition during install.

After install completed, I found there was no boot loader entry for WinXP during startup. Only SUSE-related stuff. I opened YaST boot loader and tried creating an entry of type "other" and device of "/dev/sda1" and set this as the default entry.

The /boot/grub/menu.lst file now has an entry:

OpenSUSE Install :: Enable Booting From Boot Partition When Installing 11.3?

Sep 13, 2010

Just did a clean install of 11.3. After first try, system couldn't boot for hard drive. When installing a second time, I noticed that booting from a boot partition and the MBR are disabled by default. I enabled both and proceeded with the install. System now boots fine. Since the automatic partitioning created a boot partition, I'm assuming that that is where the system is booting from and I didn't need to enable booting from MBR, but am not 100% sure. So make sure to at least enable booting from a boot partition

OpenSUSE Install :: Fill In The /boot Folder Without Installing GRUB?

Dec 15, 2010

I have a laptop with the CD-ROM apparently broken, so I installed OpenSuSE 11.4 milestone4 from USB stick .unfortunately in the end of the installation I had a GRUB configuration error (twice) . then, in the third time I removed GRUB from the installation procedureSince my other GNU / Linux is Ubuntu, I did update-grub on ubuntu, it detects the presence of OpenSuSE but it does not add it to its grub.cfgwhen I wanted to add it manually to ubuntu's GRUB, I realized that, in OpenSuSE, the /boot path was empty.My Question is: Do you know how to put the files needed to boot OpenSuSE (initrd, vmlinuz , ...) in the directory /boot without installing OpenSuSE's GRUB ?? (ie keep the ubuntu's GRUB)

OpenSUSE Install :: GRUB Boot Loader After Re-installing Windows XP ?

Mar 21, 2011

This is a problem when Windows is running some malware that cannot be removed, which happens all the time. The problem is all the new hardware or specialized hardware will not work on Linux so Windows is the only choice. I would think the latest versions of Linux would have this problem worked out by now. I installed 11.3 one week ago, only to find that the repair option in the install menu no longer exists so don't bother uses this link to reload the GRUB HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive. I also tried this link Re-Install Grub Quickly with Parted Magic which does not work either. On step 2 typing grub returns the error message "grub command not found". You can use GRUB if you boot the install DVD and select Rescue Boot. However when you type find /boot/grub/menu.lst the error message "file not found" is returned.

I did the following to restore my GRUB boot record. Boot the install DVD and select the update option during installation. Change all the repositories to enable except the NVIDIA repository, it is not responding at this time. When the system comes up go into Yast and open the boot loader. It should have your original boot menu in memory. Change the default to another option and re-write the MBR. This will write a new MBR using the original data updated with your new default. Re-boot and then change your default back. I am just a NewBe so this may not be exactly correct but I hope it saves someone like me some time fixing a MBR re-writing by the Windows installer.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update System - Without Having To Download / Install Every Dependency Manually?

Dec 13, 2009

how to update my system online (for example my firefox 3.0 to 3.5) but i can't figure out how this possibly works. I tried the "online update" using Yast2 but apparently (according to Yast) there is nothing at all to be patched on my system. I tried to click on the Firefox-3.5.5 rpm in the repository web-interface and open it using "install software" but the process aborts because of unresolved dependencies. Is there an easy way to update software without having to download/install every dependency manually?

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting From USB Manually?

Nov 23, 2010

I am not the most computer savy, so bear with me. I have opensuse installed on my usb hard drive and recently had a windows crash that caused me to lose my opensuse boot menu/grub. Before the crash I had to have the usb drive plugged in in order to boot to windows or opensuse or I would get an error at startup....... I would like to avoid this. Is there anyway to make it so that when I turn on my computer It boots directly to windows, and if I want to go to opensuse then I can plug in my usb drive and manually boot to usb from my boot menu? I would run these two together on my computer but I share this computer and having to have my usb drive plugged in all the time kind of made them mad. So I guess my question is two fold..... Is this possible? And if so can I go into my hard drive through windows and place something in there to allow me to boot to it since my grub is back to the origional windows boot or do I need to use a live cd to access opensuse and do it that way?.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 GPT Bios Boot Partition Mirroring?

May 2, 2011

I'm doing a fresh install of xubuntu 11.04 x86 32bit via the Alternative CD. My computer has two 2TB drives and I want to mirror the partitions for redundancy For the Linux partitions (ie root and swap) I'll be creating raid partitions on each drive and using software RAID 1 to create md partitions of type ext4 and swap.

For the GPT's bios boot partition, am I also meant to use software raid ? Ie create a raid partition on each drive and use software RAID 1 to create a md partition of type bios boot ? Or am I meant to not use raid partitions and just create a bios boot partition directly on each drive ? In this case, will xubuntu's install process and grub tools ensure that both partitions contain the relevant grub files or do I have to explicetly do somthing to ensure that ?

OpenSUSE :: Tumbleweed And 11.4 Mirroring With SMT?

Apr 1, 2011

I have several SLES 11sp1 servers and using SMT (Subscription Management Tool) to provide local mirroring and prevent all the unnecessary web traffic to update all these machines.

I found this article which is working out quite nicely to mirror the openSUSE 11.3 Updates which prevents all my openSUSE 11.3 machines from all going out getting the same update.



I am looking to try and do the same with openSUSE 11.4 and with openSUSE 11.4 using the Tumbleweed repos. Has anyone done this or can someone provide some insight on what I need to do. I am thinking I can run this command


smt-setup-custom-repos --name OpenSUSE_114_Updates --description "OpenSUSE 11.4 Updates" --exturl --productid *don't know what productid

I should use* to provide me with openSUSE 11.4 Updates. For the Tumbleweed repo would I do the same and would that work?


smt-setup-custom-repos --name OpenSUSE_Tumbleweed --description "OpenSUSE Tumbleweed" --exturl --productid *don't know what productid I should use*

Again I don't know what productid I should use or if it really even matters, could I use one that is not being used? I am trying to limit how many machines go out to the Internet to pull down updates. I would really like to have one system (SMT) pulll down any new files and all my clients get their updates from the SMT server.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 W/ KDE 4.3 [i586]: Editing The Startup Script Manually?

May 15, 2010

I'd just installed a *nix antivirus called Avrira Antivir (from downloaded script & installation files), but it completely froze my system when I tried to start it, and the system freezes at the login screen; which is probably because I selected the option of running it automatically upon startup...So here's the deal: I know that I can run a live Linux usb to mount my current fs, then edit the file(s) that load the Avira processes on startup, but I don't know what these files are, much less which directories they are in!

OpenSUSE Install :: Manually Change Information On Every Kernel Upgrade

Jan 1, 2011

To run my other linux distros on another drive I have been manually entering the kernel and initrid info for each distro on the opensuse yast boot loader. For windows 7 it just runs the mbr on the drive windows 7 is on. However I can not get it to do that on the other linux drive. The problem for me is that on every kernel upgrade I have to manually change the info. I would rather have grub on the sdd linux disk take care of it on the upgrades. The drive that holds the other linux versions is sdd. Opensuse is on sdc.

So my question is, if this is intended for a production server should I use the repository one or manually install it
