OpenSUSE :: KDE 4 Failing To Load?

Feb 9, 2011

After installing QtCurve 1.8-41 from software.opensuse (I've been playing around with themes), whenever I try to boot my computer, it gets to stage 1 of loading (the less colorful splash screen), and about halfway through loading that, the screen goes black and a box in the top left corner says: "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation". I'm then taken to failsafe, where I login. When I try to run kdeinit4 from the command line, I get this error:

kdeinit 4: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN14QObjectPrivate15checkWindowRoleEv.

I've tried uninstalling through zypper, but it can never find the package I specify. I'm on 11.3.

General :: Grub2 Failing To Load?

Dec 24, 2010

Very strange Grub2 issue on my Dell Mini 10.

Had Crunchbang Statler on it, and after an update, it would hang at grub, before the grub prompt. ("loading Grub, Welcome to Grub" then blinking cursor, but no prompt or ability to get into rescue)

So I booted into a liveCD, chrooted in, and reinstalled Grub2, purging everything. No dice. Same problem.

So I figured the device maps weren't right, so I pulled off any important files via the live stick, and reinstalled #!. Same problem.

Did a bit of googling, and it seemed like it was most probably not a true Grub2 error, but a bios problem, so I reinstalled XP, flashed to a new bios (A11).

Then reinstalled, this time with Zenwalk (figured it might be a debian thing). Same thing. (note I replaced lilo with Grub2 for puroposes of testing)

OpenSUSE :: Suse11.4 X86_64 Update Failing?

Aug 10, 2011

When I run the YAST Online Update OR Software Management OR Zypper, the Updates (or install of new software) fails when the download of the Delta RPM reaches 98%. I have added ALL of the community repositories and have Imported the appropriate certificates. When watching the DeltaRPM or normal RPM download, it starts the download at approx. 4Mbs/sec until it reaches 98% of file downloaded. Then, the speed drops to 0 B/sec and the file download fails. This then prompts a Retry which again fails when it reaches approx 98% download. It does not matter if I am doing an Online Update, Doing a Software Management (to install new software) or using Zypper in a Terminal session, the result is the same.

I have even gone so far as to connect the machine DIRECTLY to the internet, bypassing all firewalls so as to ensure it is not a firewall

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Mouse Failing On New Motherboard?

Dec 25, 2009

System: OpenSuSE 11.0Mouse: Microsoft Intellipoint OpticalI'm having some troubles and am in need of any assistance you can spare. I've recently upgraded to an ASUS A8N-SLI, SuSE transitioned over smoothly as I set the system to mount via volume/disk labels; it booted up perfectly although, naturally, I needed to run SaX2 to reconfigure the X server. After I did this, I logged into my desktop and after about a minute the mousetopped responding. The lights would still light up upon movement however the cursor would not move unplugged and reinserted the device however it would not light up.

I have tried the mouse on my Windows disk and my other Windows computer and it works fine. I have already tried reconfiguring SaX2 andremoving the mouse0 file from /dev/input yet the problem still persists. In fact, I'm navigating the forums with a keyboard. After the mouse fails, if I try testing a new SaX2 configuration, switching virtual consoles or doing anything which would switch resolution the computer locksp and displays s screenful of coloured, fuzzy lines. I imagine this has something to do with an X configuration somewhere, I'll post my X configs here.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network And XDM Failing To Start On Thinkpad X40

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Image/video/pdf/html Preview Failing

Apr 18, 2010

I don't how long is has been happening for (I've just upgraded my old computer, so it is now my faster and better machinig), but Nautilus is failing to create thumbnails for anything other than text files.

I've swapped the settings around to try to trigger changes, but even on "Local only" or "Always" with a 10MB cap then Nautilus won't generate previews for anything other than text files. All images/videos/pdfs/web pages that should have thumbnails generated for them have the "pending" icon but never generate a thumbnail. If, however, I open the file (with Eye of Gnome or Gimp) and refresh the folder then the thumbnail appears for the one file I just opened (so I could go through and preview all images, but I'd really rather not!)

I've tried removing/renaming my .local/share/mime folder in case it was incorrectly handling file types, but that didn't help. I've looked in gconf at the thumbnailer apps, but that appears to be for everything except images. Running "evince-thumbnailer" on its own works fine as well and generates an image. There aren't any related errors in .xsession-errors, and I don't know where else Nautilus logs to (running "nautilus --browser" creates a browser window but then drops back to the command line and doesn't print any output).

I'm using openSUSE 11.2 and the default Gnome, with codecs from Packman. A fairly similar setup on my other machine is thumbnailing perfectly fine.

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox Keeps Failing Even Though Ran "/init.d/vboxdrv Setup"?

Sep 4, 2010

I keep getting the error below even though I:

1. Added myself to vboxusers
2. Installed dkms
3. Ran the "sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" command.

When I run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" it gives me the error: modprobe vboxdrv failed. use 'dmesg' to find out why

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. One other thing, I looked in the file system and there is no "/dev/vboxdrv". Is this correct?

OpenSUSE :: GDM Fails To Load

I am unable to load the GUI in opensuse 11.1. When booting I get the normal opensuse loading screen but about half way through the screen goes black. If I hit alt-f1 I can see the start up info. The problems looks like when it tries to load gdm. It shows a couple of Warnings saying "GdmDisplay: display lasted .8135.. seconds. The findal warning says "GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors." I did do a couple of updates yesterday before shutting down but am not sure what they were.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Won't Load On 11.2

Apr 16, 2010

I installed 11.2 from the live install, choosing Gnome. I ran the updates, then uninstalled several pieces of software that came pre-loaded. Then I noticed that the menu Gnome editor didn't work all of a sudden. I noticed that the "desktop background" right-click didn't bring up the appearance preferences dialog. Then I couldn't add anything to the panel. I never logged in as root or anything like this, or did anything other than install updates/uninstall a few applications (Evolution, etc) So, I rebooted.Then, instead of getting into Gnome, IceWM login screen loaded. Then IceWM. I guess this is a fail-safe in case the DE doesn't load

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - OpenOffice Does Not Load

Jul 31, 2010

11.3 install with gnome desktop on old PC (it's not near me, can give spec later if needed). If one goes to start open office suite, writer, calc, etc. You get the open office splash screen with suse and the meter gets almost completely loaded (probable 99%) then it just stalls. Within a minute or two the screen disappears and no open office. Any ideas It was a fresh install and I haven't added anything other than multimedia packages and KDE base/apps. All other apps. load fine. Should I remove OOO and then add it again?

OpenSUSE :: FlashPlayer Does Not Load?

Mar 22, 2011

I have downloaded FireFox 4 RC (wow - fast!) and have a Flashplayer issue - the FarmVille game which uses the FlashPlayer does not load - the message was:

If your game does not load within 10 seconds, you may need to upgrade your version of Flash. Please do so by clicking here I did just that - usually Adobe website will tell you if your FlashPlayer is already up to date for the browser you access with it, OR, give you the option to update (which I did in my case) - but after updating, it still does not bring FarmVille up, and I get the same message, click the Adobe Link, and offers me to update it again.

Anyone know a workaround - because the new Firefox has the speed like Google Chrome does, and FireFox has been my favorite for years, but I have resorted to using Google Chrome for the past several months due to its speed (I have only 1 MB DSL download speed, and it seems that FarmVille is better with such speed).

I'm using openSUSE 11.4 KDE.
