OpenSUSE :: Saving In YAST2 - Host Name And Domain Server Config

Jun 1, 2010

While in YAST2, everything seems to save fine except for the information in the "Host Name and Domain Server Configuration" screen. I have two servers side by side, the one works perfectly fine, the one does not. I can save the IP address and changes to DHCP and Static, but when I enter in the information for the Domain Name and Host Name, I click next, it saves, but when I go back in to it, the items I set are blank again. The boxes are not greyed out, you can type information in without error. When entering YAST, it requests the root pw which also works fine. I am not using any strange characters other than letters/numbers. I am going in to the screen by clicking network devices-->Netword Card-->Host Name and Name Server.

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootloader Fails To Install(grub Cannot Install Bootloader)?

Nov 7, 2010

I have a major problem installing opensuse 11.3 on my computer( hp pavilion dv6).I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-x86_64 from software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.3 and made a live usb.I'm a newbie at using linux infact i never used another operating system beside windows.Now i have installed windows 7 (on c disk 100gb).My first problem when i am trying to install opensuse is that he dosn't automatic choose to make my partitions so i have to do it manualy.I was searching how to make it the best way so i desited to make 4 partitons one for ' /boot' one for ' / 'one for '/home' and a swap partition/In windows7 i made 4 new partitons

3:10 gb for /boot
4:10 gb for/
5:70 gb for /user
6:10 gb for /swap

My first question is :Is this right to make 4 paritions in windows (opensuse can't format or resize my partitions it just can edit it ) so it's my only way to make partitions( If this is wrong how can i make partitions then)

My second question is how to change the bootloader configurtation because everytime when ii try to install opensuse it stops at about 96% and it says to reconfigure the bootloader options.

If i skip this i get the folowing message

=== System Checking ===
Checking for /usr/bin/chroot binary... Passed
Checking for chroot directory /mnt... Passed
Checking for chroot directory content (bin
boot
Checking for binary /mnt/bin/ls... Passed
Trying to chroot... Failed

This is worth reporting a bug at url.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Monitor Config Not Saving (3 Monitors)

May 15, 2011

I have a triple monitor setup, that works fine in Windows (either using Eyefinity, or just extended desktops) I HAVE been able to get all three monitors working as extended desktops in Ubuntu, but when I set it up, I usually get "Not enough allocated memory to enable this monitor".....OR by some weirdness, all three will work. but when I reboot or shut down and then come back, only two monitors are working, and I get a message saying that 'the configuration couldnt be saved, or there was a white line in line 1' or something to that effect.

Either get extended desktop working, or Eyefinity.

Mother board Asus M4a78T-e

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting The 11.4 With No Bootloader?

Apr 18, 2011

Playing on a test rig here and I want to install openSUSE in an already multi-boot Ubuntu family environment. All the 'Buntus play together nicely with grub 1.89, learning the ins-and-outs of which appears to be a lifetime endeavor.SUSE appears to be still on legacy grub, and I don't want that to take over from (almost) grub 2.0. It's fairly trivial to add things to the newer grub. Question is can I install SUSE and tell it NOT to install a bootloader at all?

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot System, But Last Bootloader Install Doesn't Work?

Feb 16, 2010

I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made

OpenSUSE Install :: Revert To Windows Bootloader To Install Win7 SP1?

Feb 25, 2011

Currently I am running a dual boot with Windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. Windows has two partitions, one for the system partition and another for the OS. I have 3 Linux partitions (swap, root, and home). Obviously I am running GRUB to boot, but this seems to be impacting my ability to install Windows 7 SP1. I would like to revert back to the Windows boot loader, install the Service Pack, and then revert back to GRUB. How do I do this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Use 11.1 DVD To Just Reinstall The Bootloader?

May 1, 2011

I need to reinstall the 11.4 bootloader (but to the root partition instead of the MBR). There used to be an automated repair GUI on the 11.1 DVD, but it seems to be gone from the 11.4 distro. Is it someplace special I can find it? Can I use my 11.1 DVD to just (easily) reinstall the bootloader? I am *not* a command-line person!!

OpenSUSE Install :: Configuring The Bootloader Screen?

Mar 14, 2010

I have called, I hope correctly, the first screen you see after the BIOS details - "the bootloader screen". If that is not the correct term, then I mean the screen against which GRUB displays your various OS boot options. For some reason, the bootloader screen only occupies the middle half of my widescreen monitor. The bootsplash screens and the login screen which come after it display correctly. I think they are controlled by the command vga=0x348Is there a way of stretching the bootloader screen so that, like the bootsplash screens and login screen, it extends to the full width of the monitor

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - How To Skip Bootloader Installation

Aug 3, 2010

I just upgraded two 11.2 installations. One I easily managed from the dvd the other I had to install anew as the cd didn't offer the possibility of upgrading. While I appreciated the many improvements in desktop stability I found I am non very satisfied of the installer.

It became minimal and just does what IT wants and not what I want anymore. I miss the possibility of choosing desktops, programmes and settings during installation. Most of all I miss the possibility of choosing the bootloader and its location. I have a multi boot multi disk machine and I prefer to modify entries by hand so i never install the loader but add the new entry in the grub but this was not possible and it made just a mess erasing completely all other entries....

Booting has always been a great problem for one of my machines and I'm not going to upgrade it if thisi is the result. Is there a way of going back to the old options (no loader?) Why are the new installer always "easier" but less flexible for a user who's not geek but not even a newbie? Why does it have always to be more "Windows like"

OpenSUSE Install :: Password On The Grub Bootloader On 11.2 Box?

May 23, 2011

I'm trying to install a password on the Grub bootloader on my 11.2 box. I ran yast2 bootloader then clicked on bootloader options, then the checkbox for using a password, and then typed in my password twice. It isn't working. I've tried various different passwords to see if something was throwing it off like special characters or too many characters but no matter what I do I can't use the password to unlock the bootloader on bootup. It just tells me that I entered the incorrect password.

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Bootloader Location ?

Aug 6, 2011

Because I had Windows installed first, the bootloader was located in that drives master boot record and the openSUSE drive was slaved to it. Now that Windows is gone and the Linux drive is bigger and faster (although the same Ide (pata) ata rating. There are no sata devices in my system.) I want to reverse the master slave relationship between those two drives and put the bootloader on the openSUSE drive.

At the moment a single instance of openSUSE 11.4 is the only operating system installed on the computer I'm talking about.

What procedure should follow to accomplish that?

OpenSUSE Install :: Saving The Result From The Firmware Test Of 11.2 DVD?

Jul 12, 2010

From the start-up manual I know the Firmware Test Starts a BIOS checker that validates ACPI and other parts of your BIOS. I noticed there are 3 failures in the result. (The font size on the screen is too small for me to read.) I got stuck in trying to save to either of the two choices provided with names I don't understand. I had to use the three-finger salute to bail me out.

OpenSUSE Install :: Repair Bootloader In Opensuse 11.3?

Aug 14, 2010

I have made the mistake of installing windows XP on one of my drive after I've upgraded to opensuse 11.3 on my other drive. Now, my computer is always booting to XP and doesn't load Grub anymore... I guess I should have seen it coming I previously had similar problems with my boot loader which I could resolve using the Repair boot loader utility distributed with the installation DVD. Apparently, this utility is not distributed anymore with opensuse 11.3... so I'm a little lost. I'd like a bit of advise before I start messing with Yast / boot loader and potentially break everything.

My system is setup as follows: sda is partitioned into sda1 (swap), sda2 (root / in ext4), sd3 (/home in ext3) and sd4 (/windows/F in NTFS containing virtual machines) sdb is partitioned into sdb1 (my Windows XP install in NTFS) and sdb2 (another storage drive in NTFS).

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootloader Doesn't Seem To Be Installed Alright?

Dec 27, 2009

Since I had a little time on my hand over christmas break, I decided to do my sister a favor and install linux on her computer (consentually, mind you). But so far, I've caused nothing but trouble, since I can't get Suse to boot. I've reinstalled over and over and over, but everytime I install and reboot, the computer complains that there is no operating system installed.

After a while of reinstalling, I tried to install a boot loader from the live cd instead, but when I open yast to do this, it compains that 'because of the partitions, the bootloader can't be installed properly'.

I've tried pretty much about everything, but nothing seems to work.

OpenSUSE Install :: Safely Move Bootloader To Another Disk ?

Aug 25, 2010

Ages ago I installed Linux on a "spare" 40GB disk and I don't remember how, but that disk is where I still boot the computer from, in Bios it's listed as a primary master and HD0.

Over the time my installs moved to the "main" disk where it is now Suse 11.3 alongside Windows.

I want to get rid of that original "spare" disk altogether, physically take it out, but don't know how to move the bootloader to the "main" one.

I'm confused by all the options offered in Yast Boot Loader Location menu.

Can I just tell it to put itself into a custom boot partition and point it to dev/sdb, the current designation of the "main" disk?

Would I need to edit Grub as well? I figure the current "sdb" would be called "sda" after I take the old disk out. Would it be safe to simply rename /sdb entries, things like /sdb4 to /sda4 and so on?

Additional question - I used to play with Win7 demo, deleted that now, but its loader still pops up when I boot into Windows with their "earlier version of operating system" menu. Their offered solution is to run "mbrfix" from a WinXp recovery CD.

My question - what would that mbrfix do to the Linux bootloader and how can I get it to point back to to Grub afterwards?

OpenSUSE Install :: Control Center Not Saving Settings Upon Logout (11.3)

something odd I've noticed with 11.3 on my laptop--if I adjust my resolution through the Monitor applet in the Control Center or if I make changes to my Touchpad settings through the Control Center, the changes are lost when I log into my laptop. Do you think I botched an installation?

I've tried to determine what actual files are affected via the two applets with the thought that maybe I don't have the necessary permissions on them or that I can throw a bandaid on it with a start-up task to overwrite them. Alas, I've got nuthin'

OpenSUSE Install :: Restore Startup Theme (not Bootloader And Not Logon)

I'm not talking about GDM logon (this is OK) and not about Bootloader screen (also OK).

I meant a progress of the SUSE loading.

I have Open SUSE 11.1 with GNOME and some software from EDUCATION repo but not a Education release.
