OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Use Keyboard After Upgrade To 11.4?

Mar 16, 2011

A few days ago I upgraded my workstation from OpenSuse 11.2 to 11.4 and found that when I got to an X login screen I could not type anything though the mouse worked. If I went straight to a terminal, such as by booting to runlevel 3 the keyboard worked fine so I figured the problem was related to Xorg. I did some research on the web and tried various fixes, such as reloading the proprietary Nvidia drivers, trying the nouveau drivers, booting with the nomodeset option, as well as trying most of the suggestions in this excellent article: SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE. No of these solutions remedied the problem.

Eventually I looked closer into the new (at least compared to 11.2) configuration for xorg. If I used the xorg.conf.install file or used an earlier Nvidia-specific xorg.conf file the problem continued. After taking a closer look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keytable.conf file I noticed all of the values for the options were blank, just "". I set XkbLayout to "us", started X and I had a functioning keyboard!

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Mount Drives After Upgrade

Jan 10, 2011

I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3, everything seems to be working fine except that my other hard disk partitions are un mountable as my normal user. I used to be able to click on the drive in Dolphin and it would ask for the root password to mount it, but now it gives the error that the action is denied by auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result) What do I do to fixed this? I have checked as many settings as I can and can't find it. I would like to avoid editing the Policykit.conf file manually if possible (if that even is the right file).

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Recent Upgrade Unable To Input At Login

Jan 9, 2010

I just recently updated to openSUSE 11.2, but after restarting my computer, I was unable to do anything with the keyboard(type my password, CAPS LOCK, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) or move the pointer with my wireless mouse. After restarting the computer again, I turned on the touchpad of my laptop and was able to move the pointer using the built-in touchpad. After yet a 3rd restart, I could not move my pointer using any method.

After a 4th restart, I chose to enter the failsafe mode, where I could attempt to find the problem from the command line. I manually started KDM as root by typing in "kdm", but nothing happened, which means that the screen did not switch into graphical mode, but the terminal only accepted the command. Then, I manually started X as root by typing in "X", and X started. I only saw a black screen, but I could not kill X by the traditional "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace" and was forced to shutdown my computer via the power button.

I do want to note that on every boot of my machine, "WARNING" messages have begun appearing, but they went so fast that I could not read them. If there is any way to read them, I would greatly appreciate knowing. Also when updating my machine, I remember ignoring some dependencies for kernel-extra, kdm-branding, sox, and gcc44-fortran; but I did not believe that ignoring these dependencies could cause a broken system so I proceeded with the upgrade.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Re-load Grub Following Windows 7 SP1 Upgrade On Dual-Boot?

Apr 28, 2011

A few days ago I went to perform the Service Pack 1 Upgrade for Win 7. This crashed out with an error. On researching the problem I found a solution to fix the problem by marking the Windows partition as active. I did this (via Computer Mgmt -> Disk Mgmt). This allowed the SP1 upgrade to work, however on reboot I got an error BOOTMGR missing. This I rather rashly resolved by using the Windows 7 install DVD in Recovery mode to reinstall the Windows Boot manager via bootrec /Fixboot I thought I would then be able to use the Opensuse 11.2 install disk to fix grub.

I use the Opensuse install disk and select Repair system -> Expert Mode -> Install New Boot Loader then select Other -> Reread Configuration from Disk. This adds Win 7 back into the grub menu. I then select OK and get the message "the bootloader was installed successfully". The problem then comes when I click my way through OK and Next to finish the install. At the end of the process I get the message "An error occurred during the installation" and I'm no further forward.

FYI the PC has a single SATA disk installed partitioned as follows:

dev/sda1 100Mb Win System Parkition
dev/sda2 Windows NTFS
dev/sda3 Windows FAT

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Upgrade To 11.4: Can't Resolve Host / Error Code: Connection Failed?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm currently running 11.3 and decided I'd try upgrading to 11.4 following the instructions here: SDB:System upgrade - openSUSEUnfortunately, my attempts are defeated at the point of trying to refresh the new repos; I get the following message (for the oss repo, in this case):

Download (curl) error for 'url':
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: Couldn't resolve host ''

With 11.4 replaced by 11.3 in the repo url, it refreshes just fine. The only repository that works when I change 11.3 to 11.4 is the Packman repo. I'm not really sure why the connection fails for 11.4 but not 11.3!

Further info: I have an old router with no IPv6 support, but have IPv6 disabled system-wide. I can enter the url for the repositories into firefox and they come up just fine - it's only with zypper/YaST that I get the above error message.I also tried upgrading using the network CD but ran into the same sort of problem. In this case it may be because the CD installer doesn't disable IPv6. (I didn't want to download the DVD at my connection speed, and the KDE live CD is not listed as suitable for upgrade).

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Use Keyboard With A VMWare Guest

Sep 1, 2011

When I run as a VMWare Player guest (Win7 host), I sometimes lose keystrokes (several times a minute) or have repeat keys like thissssssssssssssssss (not as often).This doesn't happen with WinXP guest on the same VMWare installation, or Suse running outside VMWare on the sam hardware, so I suspect the combination of Suse guest + VMWare Win7 host.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Install Fails - No Keyboard, No Mouse?

Mar 4, 2010

I just bought a Fujitsu Esprimo P1500 computer with Windows 7 Home Premium. When I try to install OpenSuse 11.2, the keyboard works in the first screen, so I can select "Installation" with the arrow keys. But when the next screen comes up (select keyboard etc.), neither keyboard nor mouse work. Well, the CapsLock and NumLock LEDs light up, but that is all (and hitting the corresponding keys does not turn them off.)

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Upgrade Applications In 11.4

Apr 4, 2011

I was anxious to update my Opensuse to 11.4 but was worried about my slow internet connection. However an user of this forum kindly sent me a DVD by mail wich enabled me to do what I wanted. I just finished making a fresh install of Opensuse 11.4. It's wonderful. Almost all applications have improved a lot. But, unhappily some few have acquired new problems now, specially some that are in repos but not in the DVD. Let me number those I have found:

1 - In all versions of Gnome ctrl+alt+arrow (left or right) was the shorcut to switch between workspaces. Now it doesn't work. When I go to keyboard shortcuts in Gnome all options in the section of desktop enviroment are written "unknown action". There is no place to create shortcuts for actions related to the desktop as switching between workspaces. (I also want to use the opportunity to ask how can I create a shortcut to switch between workspaces in KDE too.)

2 - I used Qsynth/Fluidsynth as the default output synth for Rosegarden in Opensuse 11.3. In all versions Fluidsynth recognized bank variations immediatily and automatically as I changed them in Rosegarden. Now I installed the latest versions from Opensuse download site and it doesn't recognize bank variations anymore. It only recognize presets of the first bank of my soundfont. Strangely, in Fluidsynth-dsii I can load presets of any bank. But Qsynth/Fluidsynth doesn't recognize them.

3 - Nvidia proprietary drviers always used to cause some minor problems with compiz. But now they are worst than ever! When I launch applications most of the times windows come maximized but on the screen they are not really maximized at all. I have to click on the window title to bring it to the right size. If I don't do it letters inside that window don't appear correctly. Sometimes I click in close button in a window and it only works after the 2nd or 3rd click. And there are another some minor flaws or slowdowns.

4 - In a terminal I typed su. As superuser I typed nautilus. It didn't launch and gave me back the following message:

GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)

I just can launch nautilus if I login as root.If anyone have tried to connect Opensuse 11.4 to internet using DSL and it complained about one or more missing files and you didn't find those files in neither in DVD nor in 11.4 repos, it really has happenned (at until last week if anyone didn't correct it yet). The workaround is to download them from 11.3 repos and install them manually using Yast. It really works!

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Use Emacs After Upgrade From 11.3 To 11.4?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm using emacs as editor. When using Emacs with any kernel for the 11.4 version, I observe that the cursor does not follow the arrow keys, and that some characters are randomly appearing in the Emacs text windows. This disappears when using the failsafe kernel. What could be the origin of this flaw and what can be done for solving this issue ?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Unable To Build Rt73.ko After Upgrade To 11.2?

Jan 25, 2009

On my opensuse 11.1 system. I used my tp-link tl-wn321g usb wireless adapter to access the internet. It runs on rt2501 chipset and I used the serial monkey rt73 driver from here.


What I did was I installed the kernel-headers, kernel source, gcc and make. And then I cd to the module directory and did

make install
modprobe rt73


I installed "ralink-firmware-1.1-1.5.noarch.rpm" from I tried "make" again, but still the same error return.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Unable Build Rt73.ko After Upgrade To 11.2

Jan 21, 2010

On my opensuse 11.1 system. I used my tp-link tl-wn321g usb wireless adapter to access the internet. It runs on rt2501 chipset and I used the serial monkey rt73 driver from here.

Code: [URL]

What I did was I installed the kernel-headers, kernel source, gcc and make. And then I cd to the module directory and did

make install
modprobe rt73

And then I configured the network with yast.

That was until I upgraded to 11.2 using the guide here.

Code: [URL]

The upgrade went well, but I could no longer use my wireless adapter. I tried installing the driver again but when I tried to run "make", it says

make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop.
rt73.ko failed to build!
make: *** [module] Error 1

I've checked that kernel-headers, kernel-source, gcc and make are all installed.

I installed "ralink-firmware-1.1-1.5.noarch.rpm" from I tried "make" again, but still the same error return.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding 11.2?

Nov 12, 2009

I just installed the new OpenSuSE 11.2 release and after coming up in graphical mode the keyboard and mouse are not responding at all.

After that via a remote login force the machine back to runlevel 3 and this makes it able to login to the console and trying to start sax2 to make a new X configuration.

Well it doesn't read the old configuration but gets stuck as well.

The install was an update from OpenSuSE 11.1.

OpenSUSE Install :: Sax And X11 Disabled Keyboard And Mouse

Dec 20, 2009

I am quite experienced in installing openSUSE. (I used it for many years.) But the problem showed below tricks me out.

I just tried to install openSUSE 11.2. In initmode 3 the keyboard works well. Everything worked well up to the moment I started runlevel 5. In XWindows Modus, the keyboard and the mouse are disabled. And I cannot get back to any other Virtual console.

When I started sax2, I get something (in the file /var/log/Sax.log) or both mouse and keyboard like this:

It indicates , mouse and keyboard are disabled.

Here are my questions:

How can I ENABLE my keyboard and my mouse?

Where is the file that configures sax2?

Do I have to set ("on") the AutoAddDevices? or to "off"

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 X Gui Is Not Recognizing Keyboard And Mouse

Dec 27, 2009

I have just update from 11.1 to 11.2 and after reboot system hangs when arrives to the screen where all users logins are showed. I run the installation again in repair mode. Everything correct. Started system again in Level 3, login as one of the users and run startx. It starts the desktop but no keyboard or mouse is working. Started system again in level 3, login as root, started gdm and same results. It arrives to the login screen for the different users and keyboard and mouse does not work. System seems to be running as clock in the right down works.

Started system again in Level 3, login as root, run SaX2 and same results: no keyboard no mouse. I am running gnome desktop with last image downloaded openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso. it seems to be something related to bug in OpenSuse 11.2 Milestone 7: (Bugs:Most Annoying Bugs 11.2 dev - openSUSE) HAL may crash, leaving XOrg without keyboard and mouse (Bug #537452), work-around: update with 'hal' package from Base:System

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse No More Responding?

Feb 5, 2010

On our SuSe 11.1 PC keyboard and mouse are no more responding although it did work properly until yesterday. We shut down the computer yesterday evening and today they do not work anymore. But it is not a hardware problem, we can use keyboard and mouse until Grub bootloader, but as soon as we start a Linux session (doesn't matter if normal or failsave mode) the keyboard and mouse are disabled, we can see that because the NumLock and CapsLock LEDs are switched off immediately.

We have no idea what happened. We booted from CD into rescue mode and mounted the hard disk manually and checked some logfiles, but the boot.log tells us that USB keyboard and mouse are detected, as well as the Xorg.0.log file. And we found no indication that keyboard or mouse are disabled or something like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 Deactivates USB Keyboard - Lights Off

Feb 5, 2010

I used to work with a PS/2 keyboard. But one key of it has a malfunction. So I bought a new Cherry USB Keyboard. GRUB and the BIOS like it - no doubt, the keyboard itself is OK. But as soon as SUSE 11.1 takes control during boot, the lights of the keyboard are switched off, and the keyboard is deactivated. I even tried to re-install 11.1 from DVD with the USB keyboard plugged in alone - in vain. With the PS/2 keyboard I didn't ever had any such problems. I run a system with a Pentium III (Katmai) on an Intel RC440BX Motherboard.

OpenSUSE Install :: Could Not Login Because GDM Was Not Listening To The Keyboard

Apr 28, 2011

I have Lenovo T61 with opensuse 11.4 which until this morning was working just fine. I have used OpenSuse on this notebook for about 2 years with out much trouble. This morning on boot up I could not login because GDM was not listening to the keyboard for some reason. I rebooted on a live disk and the hardware was just fine. I switched to init 3 in /etc/inittab and the keyboard was working fine. If I started X with startx it still worked fine. If I started gdm the keyboard was not working anymore, so much so that I could not do {ctrl}{alt}{F1} to switch to a virtual terminal or {ctrl}{alt}{bksp} to kill X, nothing. The mouse worked so I could reboot.

I installed KDM and switched to it instead of GDM for the display manager with yast and was able to login and everything is fine. I would like to switch back to GDM but it is not that big of a deal
