OpenSUSE Install :: Migrate KDE 11.2 Settings To 11.3?

Jul 16, 2010

I installed 11.3 as a "fresh" install (not upgrade) into a second partition, so now I have both my current 11.2 and the new 11.3 as a dual boot.

I'd like to migrate my old KDE (4.4.3) settings to the new 11.3 (KDE 4.4.4) installation, most importantly KMail and its archived mail folders. My plan was to copy the kmailrc file from the ~/.kde4/share/config/ folder and overwrite the default kmailrc that's on 11.3 and then replace the ENTIRE ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/ folder on 11.3 with the one on 11.2 (including the hidden files and folders).

My questions are:

1. would this work, or am I missing other files and folders.

2. Would I be better off just copying the entire ~/.kde4 folder from 11.2 partition to 11.3?

OpenSUSE Install :: Migrate From 11.2 To 11.3?

Jul 20, 2010

I am using openSUSE 11.2 on my work computer and I wanna migrate to openSUSE 11.3. My concern is the fact that I have some "must have applications" that I had a lot of problems with them at installation on 11.2. Is there any possibility to create something like a restore point and if these applications are not functioning to come back to 11.2?

OpenSUSE Install :: Migrate From Ubuntu But For Some Reason - Can't Get Install To Work

Jul 2, 2011

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?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Migrate 11.3 Installation To Another Computer

Feb 13, 2011

I want to do an apparently simple task but since I migrated to Opensuse I found no way to do it. I have an enhanced install of Opensuse 11.3, where I added softwares from different sources according to my needs. Now that it's working fine I would like to make the same kind of install for two friends of mine and for a virtual machine on Virtualbox. In Ubuntu I used remastersys and in few minutes it created a live DVD with all the content of my system, and all of this offline, without downloading anything else. In Opensuse the only resources that most resemble that are Kiwi and Suse Studio.

But it seems that in both the softwares must be downloaded from repositories online. That would not work for me because it would take a very long time to find out all the packages I installed, from what repositories and my internet connection is very slow so I could not do it all at once. I tried Clonezilla but I was not able to restore the content of my Opensuse partition to a different machine. It gave me error messages, didn't make the restore and I didn't find a solution anywhere online. How can I transfer the content of my Opensuse installation to another computer without having to use online resources?

OpenSUSE Install :: Method To Migrate 11.3 System To 11.4

Jun 17, 2011

I am currently considering migrating an openSUSE X86-64 system from 11.3 to 11.4. There seem to be 2 possibilities, upgrade or reinstall. Opinion seems to be divided on the process of upgrading from the DVD.I have not been able to find any reasonable guide to using either method to migrate an 11.3 system to 11.4 and have the 11.4 system in the same working state as the 11.3 system was. What I have found for the reinstall method is trivial. for the upgrade method I have seen a reference to running rcrpmconfigcheck but I have been unable to find a man page for it on my 11.3 system or via google.

Does such a guide exist? It should be created by the openSUSE project for each release.If it works the upgrade process looks to be the best method. The last 2 migrations were via the install method. 10 to 11 but also 32 to 64 bit and then 11.1 to 11.3 onto a new machine before moving the data across. Both rebuilds took many days.I have seen many posts saying that it is very quick to rebuild the system. As little as 2 hours has been quoted. I have not yet seen an explanation of how they do it. I suspect that they rebuild systems regularly and have it all scripted or their systems are very simple. An explanation of how it is done would be interesting.Given that I do migrations once or twice a year, building and testing a script to do the migration is probably not worth the effort especially as the only test machine is very old and slow

OpenSUSE Install :: Saving System Settings (yast Settings)

Apr 1, 2011

Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrate Wubi 10.04 Install To A Full Install?

Mar 19, 2011

What is the easiest and/or safest way to migrate my Wubi 10.04 install to a full install? Currently, my Dell XPS M1530 is currently dual-booting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've decided after using Windows a total of around 4 hours over the past 6 months that I can probably let it go. So, I don't need Windows anymore and I believe I'm ready for a full install of Ubuntu. Though, I probably will wait for 11.04 to come out first.

A few ways I've thought of already are: 1) Find an external hard drive to put the Wubi files on. 2) Upload files to an storage website. 3) Temporarily put the Wubi files onto another computer (Windows). All these meaning I would then wipe my harddrive and install Ubuntu from a CD. And by "files", I mean Documents, Pictures, Downloads, etc.

EDIT: deleting all my applications, because won't reinstall on my computer due to dependency issues while attempting to install LibreOffice. So a fresh install would be nice.

OpenSUSE Install :: GRUB Settings During 11.3 Install Not Honoured?

Nov 26, 2010

I recently installed 11.3 from the network install CD and I wanted to configure GRUB to have a boot password. I went into the necessary options and enabled the password and saved. I went back in to confirm it stuck, and the password option was unchecked and the password was blanked.I re-entered the information and just carried on. The installation summary didn't mention any password being applied to GRUB, but I just kept on going. Sure enough, there is no password on boot with GRUB now.I tried this over multiple installs in the past couple days, as well as with the 11.2 network install CD, and on no install was the password option honoured

Ubuntu :: Migrate User From Old Install

Jun 2, 2010

I'm moving a user from an old 8.x Xubuntu install to a different machine with 10.04 installed. I want to migrate all the user's files and settings to the new machine. I see Ubuntu has a migration assistant, but the limited documentation I've found on it talks about using for in-place upgrades from older/other OSes.

Ideally, something like this would work like the Apple Migration Assistant or Windows Easy Transfer. If so, how do I access this? Anyone have a tutorial? If not, can someone point me to instructions to move the proper folders, create the user, assign permissions, etc.?

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting 11.4 MS4 With All Brand New Settings?

Dec 4, 2010

Not sure if this is correct place to ask this but here go:I have the following setup today:

sda openSUSE 11.2
sdb openSUSE 11.4 ms3
sdc openSUSE 11.3 (production)

sdb is my test environment. sda is still around since its the only way I can power down my system. 11.3 and 11.4 hang on power down. (Another subject) I have the 11.4 ms4 dvd made and I want to install to sdb without carrying over any of the settings. In the past I've just formatted and installed but the settings for the user and root were saved. Want to do a total fresh install. Reason for not carrying over setting is problems with Akonadi not starting (tried all the trouble shooting tips), and Vbox freezing keyboard and mouse when installing XP.

openSUSE 11.3 (|KDE 4.5.3 Release 10|
Intel core2duo 2.5 MHZ,|4GB DDR3|GeForce 8400GS

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Nvidia-settings Won't Install From Rpm

Jul 19, 2010

I am extremely disappointed in this 11.3 release. openSUSE had a system that worked. I never had a major problem with the Nvidea video drivers before this release. When I did have a problem with the drivers (usually because Nvidia screwed up) I was able to easily use "The hard way" to install the drivers and all was good. But now the system is so screwed up that the drivers wont install. I can't find a working Saxx2 anywhere. nvidia-settings won't install from rpm. What the hell is going on? This release should have been held up until this garbage was fixed. Novvaeu (sp?) won't work for some of the programs I want to run.

I probably changed so much stuff that I bet my system won't boot now. Oh and what happened to the lack of repair software on the install disk? For two versions now the only repair option we have had is the command line. That's great if you use those tools on a regular or semi regular basis.

OpenSUSE Install :: Non-persistent Display Settings In 11.2 / Kde?

Apr 4, 2010

My default display (DF-770 monitor) comes up something like 1280x960. In the "configure desktop" > display I set the display to 1152x864@75Hz. Next I accept the setting after the preview. When I reboot, the display is back to 1280. Do I have to manually edit some file to make my selection permanent?

Sysconfig editor has a variable that starts off with 1024x768, but that doesn't seem to be my problem, so I didn't mess with it. How do I get my display preferences saved?

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3: Configure The Monitor Settings?

Jul 17, 2010

The default Gnome desktop now has a 1600x1200 @ 75 Hz which fit my monitor but is a little too big (or at least the font sizes are too small). I would like to switch to a lower resolution. I don't find anywhere in Yast how to configure the monitor settings. No more sax2, no more /etc/X11/xorg.conf? What does replace them?

I mean, where can I set which monitor I"m using (Targa TM4896-1), what are the screen resolutions supported, if I want hardware 3D acceleration (or not), if I want to use dualhead (Matrox G400 DH)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Display Settings Won't Stick?

I have no clue why KDE is doing this, but whenever I reboot the system, the resolution resets to 1024x768. I really need to stop it from doing this. Also, Sax2 doesn't seem to be working and there is no xorg.conf file that I can see of.

OpenSUSE Install :: Combination Of Settings Which May Make It Run Better?

Jun 28, 2011

attempting to reinstall 11.3, my system always freezes up at different points. Always during actual installation (not setup). Burned an 11.4 disc and the same happens. First was a DVD, but the new one is a CD, and now with the new version, a little dialogue comes up at the start to tell me 1 gig of RAM may not be enough. Well, it always was before. Is there a certain combination of settings which may make it run better? Also, a live session works fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome-settings-daemon Is Not Started?

Dec 10, 2009

After I login my desktop preferences are not loaded. If I try to change them (Control cneter-> apparence) I get a message that says: Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with DBus, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.The first lines of .xsession-errors show:

/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started.

OpenSUSE :: Migrate The Gnome Configuration From 32bit To 64bit SUSE?

Apr 27, 2011

My new HP625 Laptop came with SLED11 preconfigured - including such special keys as the wireless/bluetooth key etc under gnome. I need a 64bit OS and 8Gb for my applications and the HP site does not offer any explicit support for 64bit Linux. So I installed SLED64bit on separate system partition and can select now 32 or 64 bit from GRUB. There remains the problem of configuring gnome (or KDE) on the 64bit system to take advantage of the keyboard, sound, cam etc. I did find a 64bit wireless driver in the i586-Repo on the HP-site that requires the kernel from opensuse 11.3 and I got bluetooth working with gnome but just for the keyboard alone, I am stuck with finding a decent configuration under 64bit. Is it possible to migrate the system wide gnome configuration from the SLED32 bit installation (as configured by HP) to any SuSEx86_64 system?
