i installed, few days before susu 11.2 . now my lcd only has resolution of 800x600, so i type "sax2". after he made that config, suse displayed me a gui, where i can change resolution and my frequency. i selectet native resolution and freq. (the right nvidia driver and lcd was detectet) and hit that apply button, then i needs to restart. done it, but then i got after that loading bar of suse only blank screen. so what was wrong ? and what i can do now to fix ?
My procedure for updating the installed packages was, to klick on the list of packages that are installed in the installation source @ system in YAST and choose "Update if newer version is available". Up to Suse 11.3 Yast automatically chooses the latest version from each available repository that is installed (eg, Packman or Mozilla Build Service). With 11.4 however, I noticed that it only updates a package, if a newer version is avalible in the repository from which the package originally origines. Since I don't want to look through 4 GB of packages manually, whether there are newer versions in another repository available, I ask you if I there is a posibility to get the old behavior of YAST back.
I have a fedora 11 with kernel package: kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-217.2.3.fc11.i686
I would like to install the devel package for this kernel version, but I can't find it, because in the fedora repo there is only the original kernel (126.96.36.199....) and in the updates repo there is only the newest kernel package (2.6.30....)
Where can I find the packages which are between the fedora and update repos' versions?
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 havent used Linux in a long time. I dug up an old copy of Suse (version8.2), and installed it on an old 599MHZ PC. Ive been trying to update the various libraries to be able to get a updated version of Firefox installed. Is there any chance that this can work? I need to know if Im wasting my time and should just put winxp on this PC. Also, I cant get any repositories working. I assume the default ones I have on the Suse installation are bad and the ones for the later versions will not work.
I was trying to get the package ready to install my Graphics card to the new update. This is the problem that I am having.
Code: Problem: nothing provides kernel-devel = 2.6.35-21 needed by kernel-syms-2.6.35-21.1.x86_64 Solution 1: do not install kernel-syms-2.6.35-21.1.x86_64 Solution 2: break kernel-syms by ignoring some of its dependencies Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c): c Now the vanilla kernel is 2.6.35-21 were as the "default" opensuse one is 2.6.35-20. I have googled and told opensuse download search engine to look for the 2.6.35-20. I cannot find it at all.
If I upgraded to the vanilla kernel without the opensuse patches would it make my machine unstable? Or can I tell it to break some of the dependencies?
how certain packages such as glib, yast2, etc. are part of "Online update" i.e. new versions show up there, whereas certain packages are not (e.g. NVIDIA drivers). Is it a setting on the repository, the package, or does the new version need to be labelled specifically?
I think opensuse should provide regenerated ISO files to public after several package updated. I think this may help reduce duplicate bug reports and reduce net traffics. I think this can greatly increase the user experience of opensuse.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 server from an usb stick. I do not have access to a wired connection and do not have a CD drive, so now I need to configure the wireless connection.for that I need to have wireless-tools which if i am not wrong are not installed by default so the question is: how can I install the wireless-tools package from an usb using only command line? note: I got internet access from another ubuntu-desktop PC so i can download any package needed, etc.
Specifically, I want Clementine player 0.6, but the guy that installed Ubuntu on my laptop put natty narwhal alpha 1 on it (don't ask me why. I wanted maverick since its stable but he never really asked. The whole thing was kinda a surprise), and Clementine only offers downloads for Ubuntu distros up to maverick. So. Can I/is there a way I can install it anyway? Or am I forced to just use Banshee until the official Update comes out and Clementine is updated in....
I installed R using zypper some time back, but then I read that I should have used a specific repository called Rpatched. So (note order) I added the repository, then remove R (called R-base) and then proceeded to install the package. Clearly in my repository list there is more than one source of R. Should I have removed the package first and then add the new repository? How in fact does zypper deal with different repositories when they all have the same package? I expect it might choose the most recent version. But what happens when the packages are patched? How does it determine the best version of the package to use?

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 at work and have a sudden need to install a newer version of python-support (> 0.9.0) than is currently available in the repo (0.8.7) for my Ubuntu version. Upgrading to 9.10 is not an option as we are planning to jump to 10.04 LTS in the next few months and I am unable (unwilling) to mess with a complete upgrade prior. Is it possible for me to upgrade to the newest version of python-support - or is this package OS version specific? Assuming it's possible, how might I go about the process of upgrading?
No matter how I try, or how many sources I go to, every instance of open office gives me an error message saying that the JRE (Java) file is corrupt. I cannot find an instance of Open Office I can download regardless of the version. I have no Open Office now. How can I find a version that will give me the entire package AND install? I've had a lot of trouble getting any version to install...but that may be due to the corruption of the JRE file
Probably a stupid question. I want to install flashplayer- found the package on the adobe website- chosen the version (9.04+) and I then get the question 'Choose an application' - to open it with. What do I do now? This prompt simply takes me to file browser. Or is there an easier way to do it?
I've installed Opensuse 11.4 and I would like update kontact 4.6 version. How I can do it? I've added the repository Index of /repositories/KDE:/Unstable:/SC:/kdepim46/KDE_Distro_Factory_openSUSE_11.4 but I can't update.
I'm a Linux novice and I'm looking to update the netbeans from the 6.8 to version 7.0. What's the best way to do this, can I just do a search in Yast and delete the 6.8 before I download and run the 7.0 script? Or should I do a side by side install?
We have installed vmware tools (open-vm-tools) on Ubuntu Hardy which is comaptible with the ESX 4.1. The packages are installed adding a repo.
deb [URL] main restricted
The Ubuntu VM is presently running on ESX 3.5, we will soon upgrade it to 4.0. How can I confirm which version of vmware-tools is running on the Guest Ubuntu VM? When we upgrade to new ESX version, the vmtools must be intact.
How do i install vmware tools on 11.2? I uninstalled the open-vmtools non-sense removed the remaining modules from it (no clean work from suse here) installed gcc, make, kernel-source and kernel-headers installed the vmware-tools rpm i started vmware-configure-tools and it says that my kernel was built with gcc 4.4.1 while i try to use version 4.4 now.(if i do a 'gcc -v' it clearly says version 4.4.1) so what ?! I said "yes" here, it tries to build the memory moudle and fails......
