So when I write my password in a terminal the letters occur in clear not ***(star). what shall I do that enetering the password to work right.I want to say if I push key f for example the system to show me one *.I know it's easy but really I forgot .
I added a whole slew of apps to my favorites and lost the 'Shutdown' option...every time I try to shutdown in the Terminal I am told I must be logged in as Root to do so...I can't figure out how to do this I'm a newbie to Linux but a CNE 5 -haven't used it 10 years- an MCP and A+ certified I've searched local help and SuSe's site and I can't find anythingI've only spent a couple of hrs on this and have had SuSe 11.2 installed since last Sunday
I've noticed on other Linux distributions that after boot up and logging off the console screen clears and provides basic information like the Linux distribution and then under it the login prompt. How can I do this for openSUSE 11.3?After I install or reboot I still have all the boot up stuff shown and when I logout after performing some work my commands are still shown. I boot the system to runlevel 3 and barely use the GUI but would like the screen to clear everything after boot up and logging out.
I have installed it as per the instructions on the OpenSUSE help guide (Wine - openSUSE). When I try and run iTunes setup from a terminal at the root login, using this code:wine /home/louise/Download/itunes64setup.exe
I get this error: linux-eqln:~ # wine /home/louise/Download/itunes64setup.exe Trying to load PE image for unsupported architecture (AMD-64) errrocess:create_process starting 64-bit process L"Zhome\louise\Download\itunes64setup.exe" not supported on this environment wine: Bad EXE format for ZhomelouiseDownloaditunes64setup.exe getting iTunes up and running or just syncing an iPhone in OpenSUSE
I want, when I boot up, to load and log-in automatically a default user. I get a login in screen with the option to login as root, I do not want this. How do disable the option to login to X as root and just load as me/default user?
openSUSE 11.2, just installed. When I start the "Root Terminal", I get this error message: Could not launch 'Root Terminal' Failed to execute child process "gksu" (No such file or directory) This error message doesn't mean enough to me to know what I need to do.
when one downloads non-rpm packages they are placed in a download window(by file roller).Could someone explain where exactly this download window is located in the directory tree? or is it? how does one install these packages from the terminal as root without knowing where their located?
I have a dual-boot system with windows xp and suse 11.2. The last time tried to enter to suse i couldn't login to my account ,only as root. I tried to solve this through suse dvd repair option andit detected a problem in grub. i repaired it but still nothing.Also the /home partition exists and i can access it when i login as root.
I have installed OpenSUSE a few months ago and worked fine. But from yesterday i can't login with root user. I received the message: Login: root Invalid user name I have no question for password neither.
Using openSUSE 11.4 (64-bit). Desktop is default KDE. All of a sudden I am no longer able to login. My desktop only has one user and when I key in the password (which I am 100% sure it is correct!) I get the dreaded "Login failed" message. I followed these instructions without success: How to reset/recover the ROOT password in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE Following the instructions in the above link, I tried re-typing the old password and created new ones too. But I keep on getting the Login Failed message. A strange situation
How can I enable "Auto Login" for root user?In " Yast --> Security And Users --> User And Group Management --> Expert options --> Login Settings " is just my own user and there's no root user to choose.
I just did a clean install of 11.3 over my dual boot xp/11.2 system and kept my home directory.When I booted the system a console box came up.I then disabled auto login and rebooted.The login screen showed two users, 1- Tom and 2- Root.When I login as Tom the console comes up and when I boot into Root the GUI KDE system comes up.How do I delete Root from the Login screen and make it so that user Tom boots into the GUI KDE desktop?
I just happened to lock myself out of ssh access on my xen virtual server since I changed the ssh port but forgot to open it in the firewall. No problem, I just access it through VNC in VM manager, I thought, however I have some special chars in my root password and the keymap through VNC seems to have changed somehow. So I cant login as root, nor do su or sudo. I can login as user. I need the sign " but can't figure out how.
I need to run a script (which requires root privileges) on login per-user only. I want this to runtomatically so I'll add an appropriate line to .profile.A couple of questions:1 The easiest way I can think of to run the script as root is to setuid, but I know there are security concerns. Is there a better way
I was logged in as root, made some changes to my users and think I may have inadvertently changed root somehow. Ever since then, my machine runs just fine, I can sudo, Yast, etc without any issues. (Root password is fine) but when I try to log in as root, the system changes the screen display, as if it's going to login, then returns me back to the login prompt without error. If I "ctl+alt+F1", I drop out to the console and can login as root, but cannot startx because the display is already in use.... So, I removed the .X0-lock, but still cannot get the GUI to load. (after running rm /tmp/./X0-lock, I get a fatal error, "can't establish any listening sockets..." "Ctl+Alt+F7" brings me back to the GUI where I am logged in as myself in Gnome) if I login with my user account, everything runs fine and all is well.
Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.
My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:
No more than 15 hours after a breezy installation and setup I somehow managed to stop the desktop manager from displaying. Once you boot into Suse, the loading bar goes across, a white flash, then a blank screen forever. I figured it was KDM once I booted into x11safemode and tried to boot the desktop manager, it recreated the situation.
I've tried un-installing and installing KDM again, however it seems to reuse the same config file. I'm thinking about deleting the config file mentioned, but I'm not sure what will happen when I install the desktop manager, if there's any setting up to get it to work with my setup, or even if that will fix the situation.
How to enable Root login...i cant copy or move something on the HDD...I have administrator rights and password for root but i cant change permissions for the HDD without login on root and root login are not allowed .
The mingetty --noclear parameter is failing with my current Fedora 13 installation. In the past this parameter would inhibit the clearing of the screen before prompting for the login name on the console. At present even with the parameter it clears the screen.
My /etc/inittab (which always worked past versions) contains:
Can someone tell me if I might be doing something wrong, or was this parameter dropped in the current version? Does anyone know of a workaround?
I understand the security purpose of the clear screen. But the particular computer is in a secured location. I prefer to look at the content of the previous screen for debugging and other chores.
I cannot see what the problem is here. I have installed MySQL 5.1.36 via YaST on my openSUSE 11.2 (32-bit) system.I can log in as root. I can "create user MY_user identified by 'my_passwd';" and a new user is created. But I cannot log in to the database using that new user name. I keep getting the message:
