OpenSUSE Install :: Multiple Machine Flash Drive Install Planning?

Jun 18, 2010

I have two different laptops that I would like to make bootable flash drive installs for, but would then like to have at least /home on a common removable storage (either a big flash drive or USB or ethernet hard drive) to share between the two laptops (I'll only be using one laptop as a Linux box at a time). One laptop (Dell Latitude D410) is only 32 bit capable (Pentium M - I think there's a 64 bit Core 2 CPU available for the socket 479, but I don't know if the BIOS / mobo will support it). If I'm going back and forth between 32 and 64 bits, can I share /home? What else can I share - /usr or anything else?

Ubuntu :: Paint Into A Corner By Not Planning?

Oct 1, 2010

Ubuntu community: I have desktop running 10.04 with a 160 GB HDD (150 ext4, 6.5gd swap) that is slowly becoming a file/print server. I decided to add a 500 gb hard drive and thought I should seek some advice before formatting and partitioning it. The network its on is shared with windows and Ubuntu machines. I do plan on adding more HDD's down the road as they fill up fast. I just didn't want to paint myself into a corner by not planning this out.

General :: Windows OS User For At Least 18 Years?

Aug 4, 2010

I have tried using Linux several times but to be truthful it just seemed to be so complicated when compared to windows OS's That it just never really appealed. The one thing That really annoys me about Linux is that Widows makes it so easy to connect to the internet and even if you run into a problem nearly every Provider offers support for Win users.

My provider BigPond (Australia) Solves all Win OS problems with just a simple phone call, but when I say LInux " Sorry We don't support that system." is the reply. So! My cable modem is supplied by BigPond but when I try to log in using Ubuntu 10.4 : Nothing works. Linux just can't recognise the hardware and no one seems to be able to tell me how you you link Ubuntu to your normal Internet hardware.

Why is it so difficult for Linux users to do what is just a breeze for Windows users. Until Linux can match Microsoft in user friendly competition, it will always run a dismal Last to Windows in any form and Win 7 is just such an easy to use service. So is there anyone out there who can tell me how I get Ubuntu to recognize my Modem and at least get me started?

General :: Ubuntu - Been Away From For 10 Years Which Commands Missed?

Jul 9, 2010

I have been away from linux for some years, but now I'm once again back with Ubuntu 10.04. I used to run Gentoo in 2000 and knew my commands, but now that the world of linux has progressed a bit further, aren't there many new commands to learn? Do you know a list of linux shell commands that are in broad use now and which didn't exist 10 years ago?

Ubuntu :: Planning On Using The Rest As A Data Drive?

Apr 13, 2011

I will admit i dont know how partitions work in ubuntu. I installed 10.10 on a fresh disk with just 40gb for the OS. I was planning on using the rest as a data drive.


If i go places > computer i do see a drive "250GB harddisk: 189gb filesystem"... I assume this is the free space mounted. However, inside that folder is "lost & found" with a x on it and i dont have permissions to write to the folder/space. I'm just looking for some advice on how i can use/access this free space. I have gparted live cd and i've tried several things but 2bh i don't know what i am doing.

General :: Planning On Resurrecting Some Older Computers

Oct 8, 2009

I have two older PC's, that I would like to revive, or at least make somewhat useful. I've experimented with Ubuntu and Damn Small Linux so far but I know there are probably better solutions. Computer number 1 is from (estimate) 1996, it's native OS is Win95. It has very modest specs
200MHz Pentium processor
CD Drive, (probably not a CD-R or CD-RW...which may explain why DSL wouldn't work.)

Currently it's mostly used to play the occasional game of Doom and word processing, and educating my little brother on how lucky he is to be growing up today. I've been wishing to use Linux on it, but Ubuntu is out of the question, and DSL refused to boot, (probably because I suck at burning discs)I tried running something called GreyCat linux on it, but that was next to useless and I had to input all sorts of commands and insert floppies just to get it to start up. I'm hopeless with CLI, I honestly don't expect much of a response for poor old computer number 1.Computer number 2 is much more optimistic. It's from around 1999-2000, it's native OS is Win98, but I gave it Win2k due to Win98 being insecure and all. Win2k is going to stop getting security updates mid 2010, so I figured I should be prepared. I tried Ubuntu on it, but that was slower than Win2k, so I don't think I could do that to my old friend (the computer), I've successfully put DSL on it, but I'm sure it's more capable than that.

-384 MB RAM
-900 or so MHz Pentium 3
-DVD drive and a CD-RW drive
Both computers have 2 USB ports each, computer number 1 doesn't seem to know it though.

Server :: LVM Planning - Disadvantage To More Volume Groups?

Apr 28, 2009

I've been using LVMs on some of my Linux servers for years without fully "getting" them. Doing a lot of things by rote. As I setup a new RAID though, I realize I don't have to be so rigid. I inherited a mission critical server with five independent disks

/dev/sdb1 /usr1
/dev/sdc1 /usr2
/dev/sdd1 /usr3
/dev/sde1 /usr4
/dev/sdf1 /usr5

I've bought an external RAID5 box that I plan to migrate the data to and was planning on this layout.

Method 1
/dev/sdb1/usr1 -> usr1disk1
/dev/sdc1/usr2 ->usr2disk1
/dev/sdd1/usr3 ->usr3disk1
/dev/sde1/usr4 ->usr4disk1
/dev/sdf1/usr5 ->usr5disk1

Mainly because the 1 to 1 correspondence is easy for me to understand, and what I'm used to. But I realize it doesn't have to be that way, and I could have one VG with all the LVMs as parts of it, i.e.

Method 2
/dev/sdb1/usr1 -> arrayusr1
/dev/sdc1/usr2 ->arrayusr2
/dev/sdd1/usr3 ->arrayusr3
/dev/sde1/usr4 ->arrayusr4
/dev/sdf1/usr5 ->arrayusr5

Is there any advantage to one way over the other? Would using one VG with multiple LVs be kind of like "putting all my eggs in one basket"? Do more VGs and LVs introduce unwanted overhead into the LV Mgr that should be frowned upon? If both methods are equal, I go with the method1. Just more clear to me. But now that I understand the second, I could go that way, if there's a compelling reason.

Server :: VNC / Remote Desktop Access Planning

Aug 31, 2009

I've just been tasked with making our company's workstations available from remote locations over our internet connection. While it seems simple in concept, I know there will be several issues I'll have to deal with. What I'd like to know is if anyone has recommendations as far as software to use and methods for securing connections. I'd like to have communications encrypted, which last I heard OpenVNC couldn't do (maybe that's not the case?). Also, I'm not really sure how the interactions between windows clients vs. my linux server and the remote connections should be handled. Would I need a separate instance of say, OpenVNC, on each client that I wanted to be allowed remote access?

OpenSUSE :: Return KDE Desktop To Default

Sep 3, 2010

so I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE and fooled around with it and the Plasma Netbook Workspaces and am now back with the regular KDE. Unfortunately something I have done has now caused me to not be able to do simple tings like change the wallpaper, or add Widgets to the desktop. Everything seems to "technically" work, so I suspect that it was a configuration somewhere that I messed up.

Is there a directory or directories I can delete and then log out and back in which will create the environment with default settings? I've done this with Gnome and Xfce when I've really messed it up and it has fixed things a number of times, but I am not sure where KDE stores their config files. I believe is it openSUSE 11.3 with the KDE version that came with it and it was installed from a LiveCD.

OpenSUSE :: SuSE To SuSE Remote Desktop?

Mar 5, 2010

What would be the preferred method to establish a remote desktop session from one 11.2 machine to another 11.2 machine in the same location? No firewalls, local connection only. I've looked at VNC, RDP with xrdp, have not been able to establish a session to desktop. I would rather not use desktop sharing if possible, don't want invitations involved. Want something similar to hitting from Windows with VNC3and taking over the established desktop session. This is in my house, no security risks involved

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Logout System Sound Since Years?

Apr 20, 2010

Since I can remember, Logout sound never plays in Ubuntu, or maybe the problem is Compiz + Gnome. A very similar problem occurs in KDE (Kubuntu), but here the problem is No Login sound.

Gnome + Compiz: Good Login sound, No Logout sound.
KDE: No Login Sound, good Logout sound.

So, what is the problem with Login/Logout sounds in Linux now? I have used the last 4 Ubuntu releases, and Logout sound never plays in Ubuntu(gnome).How could a fix that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu LTS Software Upgraded Over The 3 Years?

Apr 25, 2010

Is it still true that if I install the LTS version of Kubuntu that I'll be stuck with the versions of software that it comes with? Or, will the versions of the software it comes with be updated during the three years it's good for?

Can I convert my present install of Kubuntu 9.10 to Kubuntu 9.10 LTS by installing Synaptic and clicking on Settings>Updates>Long>term>support>releases>only? I'd prefer using the 10.04 LTS version but not if I'll be stuck with software I can't upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drive Space Planning For 10.04 LTS?

Oct 16, 2010

When I install and update software on Ubuntu, what is the location of those installation files. I'm going to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with 30 GB and wanna update huge collection of software. Is it enough or I need more space?

My plan is :
boot = 130MB
swap = 4096 MB
/ = 26000MB

Should I need separation of root(/). Like: /user, /tmp etc. If, then which media needs more space?? OR what should be the best choice?

Software :: Planning Giant Array Expandable To 80TB

Dec 18, 2010

Currently have a Server 2003 fileserver. I am tired of having to buy a whole new hardware array every time I need more online space. I'm up to my 3rd controller/disk swapout in 5 years and I need something truly expandable. This time I am shooting for the stars and devising a system that will have an upper limit of 80TB instead of just doubling or tripling the current space (6TB). The server will initially be equipped with a 4-port eSATA contoller with a single 5-drive tower running through a port multiplier to one of the eSATA ports. As time goes on more towers will be added to fill all the eSATA ports (5 drives per port, 20 drives). If needed a second controller will be added to provide another 20 drives worth of capacity. (40 drives total). I need to work out what the best way to configure these drives is, to have some level of redundancy and also to keep the available data space reasonable. What I've worked out so far is:

LVM - expandable volume, all space should appear as a single volume. Start with an LVM volume over the 5 drive mdadm array. Expand it over new 5-disk towers as they are added.
MDADM - Each tower of 5 disks will be in a 5-disk RAID5 array set up with mdadm. As new towers are added the md* device will be used as new space to expand onto with LVM

Here's a quick diagram to show what i mean [URL]. So what I haven't been able to find out so far is:
> Is this really a good idea, what other way is there to get truly expandable storage?
> What happens to the linux kernel when it reaches /dev/sdz?
> Is mdadm capable of managing 40 disks, even if they are grouped as different arrays?
> Can LVM create a 57.92TiB volume?
> What FS would I need to use to support a 57.92TiB volume?
> If one md* fails entirely (2 dead drives from a group of 5), would anything on lvm0 be recoverable?

OpenSUSE :: Ktorrent Does Return From Sleep Nicely

Apr 2, 2011

I have KDE DE in openSUSE 11.4 Tumbleweed.

The issue is with Ktorrent.

When I put the machine to sleep (suspend to ram) with Ktorrent running and then wake the machine up again, the torrents that were working do resume. But they resume in a very poor fashion, continually going into and out of "stalled" status. This bad connectivity continues indefinitely.

I have to kill Ktorrent and restart it to get good data flow back for the torrents that are running. Is there an explanation for this? And is there something I can do to make the torrents resume nicely when I bring the machine back from sleep?

OpenSUSE Install ::return To The Greeter GUI After A Brief Blip?

Mar 15, 2011

I today upgraded to 11.4 using a downloaded DVD.

I was at 11.3/kde4.6.1. I did a clean install of 11.4, reusing my /home partition from 11.3. This is a desktop, legacy ATI (uses RADEON driver)

After the install process, I ran YAST-Software Management to grab recent updates.
Rebooted system, all seemed OK.

I then added the KDE46/11.4 repo, ran YAST and performed a "Switch to files in this repo" to move to 4.6.1.

I logged out, but cannot log back in, I simply return to the Greeter GUI after a brief blip.

Logging in to console, I don't see anything definitive in /var/log/* as to what the problem might be.
