I have just visited this page here, Updating openSUSE - openSUSE I have been trying to update my OpenSuSE system for a week now and I have absolutely no idea what causes this problem. The update would start but would stop right in the middle and refuse to install some pulseaudio(...) package... It would indicate that network is down while I am sure it is up.
I am behind a proxy and I have again and again made sure that the proxy settings are correct and alright. Since it downloads some of the packages in the start I believe my connection and settings are OK. Maybe the SuSE server is down, but not for a whole week, I don't think so. I would also like to mention that I have only tried updating through YaST GUI and I am, as of yet, unaware of any console or command-line methods of updating.
I really would like to update my system because I happen to be paranoid in matters of computer security. (Just kidding) But since I cannot install any updates it should mean I might have problem installing new software. So my digital life is literally crippled because of this problem.
i am using putty to connect to my server and wanted to restart mysql server. searched the internet and found thatcommand is /etc/init.d/mysqld start or stopbut it did not worked.then tried /etc/init.d/mysql stop or startthis also did not worked.
I just installed openSUSE 11.4 and after the installation of VirtualBox I coudn't start it. The icon at the cursor kept jumping but no response. I tried to run the binary from Konsole and I got the following message:VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyFileInternal: Failed to open "/usr/lib/virtualbox/VMMR0.r0": No such file or directory (2)I checked YaST to see which packages were installed:
I have a "remote" server and I want to have it's X exported to my "local" laptop. Preferably, it gets done automatically from boot. I know that virtual terminals 1-6 are all text terminals and 7 is the local X. How can I get my laptop to automatically create a virtual terminal on 12 that's dedicated to receiving the X display from the server?
I know how to get it over SSH/putty. And also how to stop the local and restart the X client on 7 to use the remote. But one of the beauties of Linux is the automation and multi-user environment. It's essentially going to act as a KVM with gui replacement over IP.
I am trying to give access to ONE single user to start and shutdown tomcat server. The problem being, when I enter syntax: username ALL= /etc/init.d/tomcat5, /usr/local/tomcat/webapps, PASSWD:ALL This gives the user access to start and stop tomcat but also gives user access to start and stop other services within /etc/init.d - such as httpd etc... What is the proper way to give user access to start and stop service, and limiting that power to only one service....
How do I program a virtual machine to auto-start/boot upon boot up of the host system? I am experimenting with SNORT network intrusion detection system and have installed it inside a virtual ubuntu box which I want to start automatically.
I installed gnome 3.0 through the one installer, and now every time I start kde I get a gnome terminal that says Code:
** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags' ** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowActions' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags' ** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowMoveResizeMask' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
It keeps shrinking everytime I try to expand it a bit, I had to edit > select all and copy to be able to read it. And it sounds like it's trying to play a sound that sounds like welcome, but it gets cut off, it also makes a sound when closing it. I'm assuming this was supposed to be a first time run thing for gnome but it keeps showing up in kde.
I'm running 11.4 with Gnome 3. I've installed the PiTiVi video editor from Software Manager, but when I tried to run the program, it wouldn't start. Trying to run from the terminal returned this error: "Gst-Python couldn't be found!" I tried looking for the dependency, but couldn't find it in Software Manager.
I must be missing something. I have never had any trouble dl'ing the DVD's or Live CD's. Now they all dl to 99% and then stop. I started with my Win 7 box using Opera, then Seamonkey, then Seamonkey with Metalink agent then on an XP box using Opera then finally Ubuntu w/Firefox through vmware on the Win 7 box. I don't see any similar posts, is Cox just not letting them finish or am I missing some change that allowed me to complete them before & not now?
running 11.3, installed k3b and a few other things from Packman. Now suse updates wants to replace k3b. I moved the suse update repo to priority 100, packman to 90. Still, it tries to apply the k3b update from the suse repo. I went to the updater in yast and told it to NEVER install the update, and also tried locking it (protected) and again, after a reboot, it checks for updates, and tries to replace my k3b. Then finally, the version in packman is NEWER than the one in the suse update repo
Recently I've updated from 13 to 14. However, after updated I've tried to work with my terminal and it seems doesn't works fine. I can read 'starting terminal' but after that it's closed.I've uninstalled and re-installed it through the graphical tools (gnome-terminal) but that doesn't works fine.
how can i solve a small little problem: Every time i start opensuse 11.2 i get a window asking me to input the keyring password... this started to happen after i installed Pidgin. how can i stop the keyring from asking me the password everytime??? how can i even get to this "keyring"??
I have a small question for you my friends."HOW CAN STOP BOOT SCREE AND RESTART ,WHAT KEYS ARE NEED?"I want to say thisC starts and I want to stop in whatever one point to read the messsage ,especially when I see "failed".I have 2 points with failed I can't have enough time because it's going fast.Of course I read the boot messages from /var/log but they are too long and to be honest evan I used in "gedit" the option "find" to search of raws with "failed" I can find some ,but other not.That's I think when PC start and if I can stop/PAUSE the boot process using some key combination I note and after I cancel "PAUSE" and PC continue the booting process.
I wanted to put openSUSE on virtual box within winodws 7. I wanted to know if this will mess up any service pack updates. Also, if i need to uninstall virtual box, i will get my hard drive space back, correct?
Having messed up my old 11.1 VM I decided to start anew with 11.2 on Virtual Box 3.2. First attempt to install resulted in a crashing (aborted) system after the first reboot (before automatic configuration). Second attempt to install resulted in a GNOME-based system with a weird-looking login screen.
I tried to configure my account for auto-login but was told by the help that GDM or KDM are required for that. So I tried to install GDM (since I was using GNOME) and couldn't find it. I installed KDM instead.
Then I rebooted and found myself at a text mode login prompt (but in runlevel 5). For some reason the system didn't start X and KDM. Otherwise the system seemed healthy:
I logged in and started X (startx) and everything worked perfectly. However, runlevel 5 is supposed to start X and isn't and KDM never showed up. And why couldn't I install GDM? And why is GDM or KDM not part of the default install?
I'll have a Sony VAIO AR290 with 2 HDD, earlier I'll have a Windows XP and SUSE and RAID was turned off. Now I turn on RAID in STRIPE mode for better productivity, Windows 7 installation was successful, It creates MBR partition (100 M and C: HDD. During SUSE installation(I've chose all parameters- swap and partition) installation process stop at 1% on "operating with HDD" and my VAIO dont answer on any key pressed (alt ctr del, ctr c, esc) and I'll should to turn it power off. During surfing web, I'll find some solutions to solve it by creating root partition but It hasn't any results.
I want to monitor my work on the terminal.I know we can use script command.But every time when I start the terminal, I have to type script to start it.I want to automate it. So where should I include this command so that it will start as soon as I start the terminal ?
MY WORK TILL NOW: I have put this "script" command in the .profile.The when I start the terminal, it became an INFINITE LOOP.I am able to "echo".Thats coming only once.....but if I write a "script" command then it is becoming an INFINITE LOOP.
