OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Boot To GUI After Update

Aug 30, 2010

today, I updated my OpenSuse 11.1 to 11.3. Since then, I can no longer enter GNOME, just the shell. Something like "gdmdisplay lasted x seconds" is diplayed several times. I have read on the web that there is a problem with NVIDIA cards (I have a Geforce 6200 LE). So far, I tried the following:

1) typing "nomodeset" to the boot options

2) adding device="fbdev" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf, then blacklisting nouveau

3) installing the proprietary nvidia driver:

zypper ar -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.3/ nvidia
zypper install x11-video-nvidiaG02

When I do this, the system tries to retrieve metadata for the nvidia repository for a long time, then times out. And yes, I have internet, ping works.

4) downloading the nvidia driver and installing it manually - this aborts with the message that "kernel-source" can't be found.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Boot After Update?

Jan 5, 2010

After todays kernel update openSUSE 11.2 will not boot I have both Ubuntu 9.10 and openSUSE 11.2 dual booting and since I installed Ubuntu first, it is using the Ubuntu GRUB as my boot menu. After todays kernel update, when I select openSUSE 11.2 from the GRUB menu I get Error, you must open kernel first: Press any key to continue... Pressing a key reboots the machine. I'm thinking that the update did not update the GRUB menu from Ubuntu to open the new version kernel. How can I manually edit it or get GRUB to scan for the new kernel so openSUSE will boot?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Following Update

Sep 18, 2010

I just finished installing openSUSE 11.3 off the (downloaded) DVD. All was good. Then the Online Update recommended a huge swathe of patches and I accepted them. Now when I try to reboot, it gets as far as started to display (fade in) the main window, and then freezes - mouse and keyboard are dead.

Rebooted several times - same problem every time.I can boot to the console if I so choose from the Menu on the login screen.I guess some part of the update is bad. any idea how I can find out which part and fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot, Can't Update?

Mar 18, 2011

I have upgraded from SuSE version 11.3 (which worked well) using zypper dup. Unfortunately, an earlier post regarding resolution of a CPU crash during boot turned out to be premature, as it is now intermittent. When booting, the system: (1) UDV reports a CPU crash (on-screen dump)(2) if the computer is reset (turned off, then on again), it will eventually either boot up normally (rare) or display a screen with a very wrong resolution setting. Repeatedly rebooting will eventually tease the system into normal operation, but it usually takes several attempts. Several Grub parameters have been tried but don't seem to make any difference. The display adapter is an Intel 845G for which a /etc/dhcpd.conf file has been configured.

(3) Once operating, the system cannot update, either using zypper up or the Gnome GUI update manager. Running zypper update from root yields:GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL). After several such messages, the update proceeds, but locks up with: Retrieving: timezone-2011b_2011c-1.2.1_0.3.1.i586.delta.rpm [0% (0 B/s)]Interestingly, the download of timezone data often continues up to 74%, then stalls. Initially, the timezone file begins to download, but stops at 74%. The B/s then counts down to zero. The download attempt will time out, then continue to retry until manually aborted.The GLib error can be supressed with su - root, but update still fails with the timezone download.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Update Ffmpeg And All The Other Ones?

Feb 15, 2010

I've been having a somewhat disagreeable problem updating ffmpeg and all the other resources that need updating (libavcodec52 et al) for some time now. I'm asked to delete most of the software/libs that are needed for certain software (2man2dvd, etc...). At times it looks like I have some serious contortions to go through in order to update these rpm's. I'm using 11.0.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update To 11.3 Has Lost Boot Entry?

Aug 27, 2010

my own fault really,just dived in to do the update and did not back everything up. I have three disks in my machine one winxp for games , one was suse 11.2 and added lately one for ubuntu. added the ubuntu disk installed and this replaced the grub loader, still gave me all my previous options but does not look as nice as the suse one.so I did update on 11.2 and thought would give me the nice one back and still have all my entries. Er no. entry for win and 11.3 but no ubuntu.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Update - Huge Dependencies

Mar 6, 2010

I thought it would be great to be able to play DVD's so I installed an update that would enable this. The multimedia update was 1.3 Mb but the dependencies was about 650 Mb! Among others I had to update the whole Office pack. Is this a "feature" I have to go through on every installation or is multimedia special?

OpenSUSE Install :: Xorg Update - Boot Into Run Level 3 Stops

Jun 8, 2011

There was an xorg update that I did today (June 8) and when try to boot into runlevel 3, it stops when it gets to starting up sntp. I also saw that it said DHCP client not running. When I try again (push the power button) and allow it to do what it wants, everything seems to start up just fine. I'm asking about this because I need to re-install my NVIDIA graphics card driver. For the boot options, I've tried clearing the text (I don't remember what they are at the moment) and typing:

Code:
nomodeset 3
and when that failed, I've tried it as
Code:
nomodeset3
but still get stuck at the same spot. I've also tried it without clearing the text but still it gets stuck.

How can I get to runlevel 3 in order to re-install my graphics card driver? I cannot run my 3D software without it. Can I switch to runlevel 3 from the usual (normal GUI) screen? I can't remember the command. I'm running SuSE 11.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dual Boot Grub Protection From Win 7 Update?

Jun 17, 2011

I saw a good quick fix for grub after win 7 updates over here

My question is, after WIN 7 sp1 it seems every update win 7 does borks grub and resets the system to boot from the Win 7 boot partition, Is there a way to prevent this or is it going to be a boot from CD and repair after every update?

Cause I know M$ isn't going to want to fix it as they don't like sharing systems.

I'm running
OpenSuse 11.4 Win 7 sp1 dual boot

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Update Amarok To Play Mp3s

Jul 18, 2011

I've installed Opensuse 11.4 and even have the multiboot working (at last) and firefox running at more than a snails pace, but this latest problem is really stumping me. I suspect it might be a little more fundamental than just amarok and mp3's but that's where I see it.

So, when I run amarok it asks if I would like to install MP3 support So I click on affermative and, since I added the neccessary repositories, it starts merrily into updating. Then after a few files it his this one:

libqt4-devel-doc-data

98MB. It downloads all the way to 99% and then the transfer rate drops from the 120KB/s I expect to 8B/s for a minute or so nad then it just restarts from 0%. It will do this a few times before offering the opportunity to skip. I did skip and it did a few more files successfully then hung up in the same way. It seems like any file larger than 1MB will not download.

OpenSUSE Install :: After Kernel Update No Ext4 Support At Boot Time

Apr 20, 2010

telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse Lost After Update - How To Boot In To Terminal?

Oct 15, 2010

I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error 15 - File Not Found After Update 11.3 On A Dual-boot PC With Ubuntu 9.10

Oct 22, 2010

Recently I've installed Open Suse 11.3 along with Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC ( made it a dual-boot OS ). This morning while logged in, in Open Suse 11.3, found out that there were important update for kernel in Yast. So, did the update and then required to restart the PC. In the Grub/boot menu, I chose to log-in to Open Suse 11.3, but after a while it returned with " Error 15, file not found ". Luckily I was able to log-in in Ubuntu 9.10. Assumed that Error 15 is always related to misplaced or wrong configuration of Grub in the partition, I did several searching via Google, and found this possible solution HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive . So I tried the " Broken Grub menu: boot to the menu, drop to a console and boot openSUSE direct " method. But rightly after the " find /boot/grub/menu.lst " command as instructed in the solution, it returned with ( hd0,0 ) and ( hd0,4 ). Why there are 2 bootloader in the Grub ? Which bootloader should I choose ? And for convenience, here is my " menu.lst " folder that I get via Terminal in Ubuntu 9.10 :

$ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),

Nothing I tried would let me put it to the way it was(50gb to linux). Repair install failed. Update wouldn't work. MSwindows in the grub boot menu disappeared. I tried reinstalling suse. The installer blocked any attempt by me to put the partitions back to normal. How do reset the windows and linux partitions(850gb windows, 50gb to suse linux)?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Every 6th. Or 7th. Boot The Sound Dies ?

Jun 5, 2010

Suse 11.2 - KDE 4.3.5. I have only one sound card. The only Pulse software that is installed is libpulse0 and libxine1-pulse. All sound applications work. Amarok, vlc, kaffeine, Skype etc. But then every say 6th. or 7th. boot the sound dies. On everything. Even the startup melody. When I go to Yast>Hardware>Sound everything looks in order but the test on the card makes no sound. But if I delete the active card then re-enable it everything works again.

I saved the working /etc files as *.works and ran the following script...

The only difference was a slight volume difference in asound.state (23 vs 27).

I thought I might try to diagnose it by doing a file search for file changes in the last 5 minutes immediately after I run the Yast re-enable.
