There is no pkgconfig file, so "configure" and "make" commands does not find all the time automatically needed files even they exist.

OpenSUSE Install :: Open Suse 11.3 Along With Win 2008 R2 OS - Error "Win2008 R2 Is Not Supported In Open Suse Installer"

Mar 6, 2011

I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!

SUSE :: Package A War File As An RPM Package - Always Giving Errors In %build Stage

Feb 14, 2011

Still I am asked to package a war file as an RPM package. That is an unusual RPM packaging(To me). If you guys could guide me I have a war file inside a folder, that folder is inside a tar file as a SOURCE for RPM package. The structure is like below.


I simply want that the war file from sources is transferred to the web app of my tomcat server through RPM. I try to package it as an RPM, but its always giving me errors in %build stage. When I try to remove %build from stage from the spec file, then it says command missing.

My system details are:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)

OpenSUSE Network :: Ftp Client Can't Upload - Lacks Permission On Its Own Machine

Sep 28, 2010

Have a pureftp server on OpenSuse 11.2 (x86-64 bit), KDE 4.3.5, dual core AMD. It responds to ftp clients on another machine (openSuse 11.1) within the same subnet (192.168....) and delivers lists of directories, changes directories, etc. The clients (gftp, jftp, filezilla, dolphin--tried them all) are unable to upload to the server (after a successful log-in on the server as a user, not root) with an error message that seems to indicate an inability to open the file on the client machine. Also logged in as user on the client machine. From FileZilla:

Command:STOR FCtinyLogo2.jpg
Response:553-Can't open that file: Permission denied
Response:553 Rename/move failure: No such file or directory

What am I missing in permissions? The directory where the JPG is located belongs to the user who is signed in, its in his home directory. The users on the two machines are not the same.

OpenSUSE :: What's The Name Of The Package That Provides Suse-style Submenus

Dec 3, 2010

Back in the day when I was using openSUSE and KDE3 I really loved the way the menu entries were organized into submenus. (For example: the Multimedia menu used to have the following submenus: Audio, TV, Video, etc.) I've been using neither openSUSE nor KDE3 for more than a year (switched to Arch + KDE4).

Not that I have anything against openSUSE. On the contrary, I think it's a fantastic distro, but the time came when I needed to move on (going rolling release was what finally sold Arch to me). However, I have taken with me many of the things I learned to love on Suse. One of them was the menu's layout, which for me works better that vanilla kde's. What I would like to know is:

1) If that menu layout was something from KDE3 that got lost in the move to KDE4, or something SUSE added.

2) Which Suse package provides the layout (the default menu layout is given by menu files on /etc/xdg). I would like to take a look and copy it to my Arch install.

OpenSUSE :: SUSE Would Be Perfect If It Used Debian Package Mangement

Oct 19, 2009

The more I use openSUSE 11.2, the more I love it. Today, I tried another highly recommended KDE4 distro, and while it was nice, I immediately recognized that the excellent integration and refinements SUSE includes are very much to my liking. openSUSE is nearly perfect for me in every way -- except one. The package management continues to leave me baffled.I was hoping I would eventually learn to like it as much as Synaptic, aptitude/apt-get and the other tools on Debian-based distros. But the more I read, the more I am questioning whether I will ever like it.I'm now fairly convinced that Debian-based package management is the gold standard. (Of course, I'm just going on what I have read. I'm far from expert, and I'm hoping to get educated by posting questions like this one.)

But I doubt I will find a distro that is equal to openSUSE in every way except that it uses Debian-based package management. (I wish such a distro existed.)So, if I have to live with YaST, zypper, RPMs, etc., how can I learn to have the best experience with the least amount of investment? Low investment is important because if I really wanted to invest the time to become more of an expert in operating systems, package management, etc., I would probably just jump to Arch Linux and KDEmod and enjoy a rolling release. Or maybe Gentoo, etc. What I like about openSUSE is that it just works. It works out of the box. Except for package management.

deal with the initial setup of all the stuff on another (Debian-based) distro that isn't to my liking or that just doesn't work, and then thereafter enjoy that distro's good package management..have a great out of the box experience and the overall nicest initial OS experience I ever remember, but live every day with a package management system that isn't up to what I experienced under Ubuntu.Quote from the link above: It is almost unfair to include Red Hat in the same category as Suse because, frankly, Suse makes Red Hat look like geniuses. I don't know why a company which can create arguably the most attractive and professional looking distribution available in the Linux world has such a godawful package manager.

OpenSUSE :: Ksysguard (Monitor) Lacks Process Table Because ProcessTable.sgrd Is Empty

Jul 13, 2011

Ksysguard has always before shown a process table on one tab and the system load charts on a second tab. Loading Ksysguard produces an error message: "The file /home/*/.kde4/share/apps/ksysguard/Processtable.sgrd does not contain valid XML." That file contains nothing, as it's size in Dolphin is 0. Have updated KDE in Yast; removed Ksysguard 4 (which installed ver. 3) then re-installed ver 4. Still lack the process table.

This is OpenSuse 11.4 on a Toshiba A665 laptop. In other respects the system works perfectly, well almost. I'm examining a large number of files recovered by scalpel from a disk image created by ddrescue. This problem appeared while working through the nnnnnnnn.doc files. Most of them open in LibreOffice, but some produce an error message ("Not a Word 95 document"), open as slides (which is OK), or seem to freeze LO (with a CPU core at 100% in ksysguard). Lacking the process table, I'm having trouble killing the LO process (ps doesn't deliver the process number as expected; still studying it).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Error Generating Package : SuSE/SUSE112-AMD64

Mar 26, 2010

I have been having trouble with installing ATI drivers on my box. I have tried the repository way and that fails due to checksum differences. I want to try the command line way but. every time I run the installer it acts like it worked, then when I close it by clicking Okay I get a message that says the compile has failed.

I am wondering if there is a kernel setting that needs to be changed? The output error log has the following output:

Since I have a backup of my previous .config file is there of restoring without changing the permission rights to file?

OpenSUSE Network :: File Transfer Suse To Windows?

Jan 30, 2010

I am currently running Windows Xp with service pack 3 and OpenSuse 11.0 (i586) on the same machine on separate hard drives. here are the specs on the machine. (Note: it is only a single core machine. I have no idea why both Suse and Windows say it is dual core as the processor was bought and installed months before dual cores went on the market.)

OS Information
OS: Linux i686
Current user: telknor@linux-l3e2
System: openSUSE 11.0 (i586)
KDE: 4.0.4 (KDE 4.0.4 >= 20080505) "release 15.4"


Now on to my problem. About a year ago I had to wipe my Windows drive and backed up about 32 GB of stuff from it to my OpenSuse drive. I did this from the Suse OS using Dolphin. In fact I can see, open, change, delete, modify layout, and move stuff around on the Windows drive all day long from Suse. I can as I said pull stuff over to the Suse drive from Windows drive while in Suse and save to Suse drive. Now I have need of the stuff that was moved but Windows does not see the Suse drive for what it is. Just says 'unknown partion type' gives size in GB and ignores it otherwise. From Suse if I try to move stuff back to the Windows drive it starts to transfer then stops and tells me it does not have permission to access the destination drive, folder, or location depending on how I tried to save it to the Windows drive. Adding new hard drives to the system does not help and the external 1 TB drive we have Suse can see it but will not do anything with it. The thumb drives on the other hand Suse does not have a problem with. It will open, read, and write to them all day long. Suse will not access the network to dump files to the network file server and it does not see any other systems on the network not even the ones running the same OS. I want to do the following:

1. Move the Windows files from the Suse drive to the Windows drive in same machine or to the network file server (also a windows machine)

2. Move all the Suse files to another machine running same Suse OS.

3. Wipe the Suse drive in this Machine so that Windows can use it.
