When I change something in network setings using yast (for example hostname) it failes to restart the network. I have to start knetworkmanager manually from the terminal. Does anyone get the same type of behaviour ? I'm attaching the relevant yast log.I'm using 11.3 KDE 4.5.4 184.108.40.206-0.5-desktop kernel.
I installed openSUSE on my notebook with an usb drive using openSUSE 11.4 KDE LIVE iso. The installation process set the name to "linux-ygrl" which I don't really like. (I probably just missed the setting during the installation.). I tried to change it through YaST -> Network -> Hostnames and I set everything where needed to the new name and restarted but the changed weren't applied. I searched the web and found out about the /etc/HOSTNAME file which still contains "linux-ygrl". Now I could change it manually but I was wondering if there is a GUI for it? (I mean, openSUSE has for alsmost everything a GUI.
I've got a weird problem since the update to 11.4: every time I use a yast module (the problem occurs with all of them), when I've finished (press OK or Cancel), it relaunch the module after the work is done. For example, launch the Package Manager, choice a package to install press OK : it performs the install and then relaunch the Package Manager. If you choose to quit, it will relaunch it... The only way to stop it to kill the process (or killx).The same problem occurs with the terminal version of yast. it's linked to a config file of yast under root or something so? I haven't found such problems reported on the internet.
I have fake(bios) raid0 with Windows XP and third non-raid hd which I wanted use to install linux to (as I read about problems with installing grub into raid0). During installation Yast had correctly detected raids and all windows partitions (basically its divided into two raids with 2 partitions of 1st and 3 on 2nd) and even proposed mounting them at /windows/c, /windows/d and so on. Now I have OpenSuse 11.4 installed, grub at /boot on sdc but to log to system I need to use installation disc (otherwise Windows starts up). What I wanted to do is follow this tutorial to add grub to Windows bootloader: Boot Multiboot openSUSE Windows (2000, XP, Vista - any mix) with Windows bootloader. Problem is after reboot partitions are not mounted (dirs exists but nothing there) so I cannot copy boot code to windows. I read that fake raid may need special drivers but when i start Yast->system->partitions it again shows everything correctly!
fragment from partitions section in Yast (I translated/removed non-important entries as I have non-English system so it may vary from what is actually in Eng version):
In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.
I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.
How do you mannually set up a network using Yast/ifup? I'm trying to get my wireless running on a Broadcom 1390 WLAN. I've gone through the stickies in the wireless forum (this is my first stab at Linux) and have gotten the drivers installed and the internet working (albeit intermittently) using Knetwork manager. It seems that some folks that have had the same issue did not have problems setting the network up manually with Yast & ifup. I've disabled network manager in Yast, and I went through man ifup. It seems I need a "pre-configured interface," but I don't know how to make that happen.
Why does this happen? I am (this time) trying to install Atmel's gnu-avr toolchain. Atmel's web site gives the repository as http:www.atmel.no/avr32/suse/11.0/i586. I put that into YAST2's repository manager, and it comes back with "unable to create repository from URL..."
Why does this happen? It's hardly unique to the Atmel repository: in fact, it seems to be YAST's default behavior on ANYTHING other than the official SUSE repos.
Is there some way to fix this, or bypass it with some other installation tool, so I can get the software I need?
i had the problem that i couldn't surf access the internet while DNS and PING worked well. That i solved with ipv6.disable=1 at boot time. Now i can suf the internet with a browser but YAST is still unable to access the repositories which are accessible with a browser. Can someone please help me what the problem with YAST is?
I have just recently found I have a problem under SUSE 10.3. History, I had my PC, an IBM Power Centre box with 4g ram and 2 hard-drives (80gb and 1Tb) fail to reboot after a power drop. Got an error message about the 80gb H/D losing some information. I was able tofix the issues by using "fsck". The PC was able to restart after this, and seemed to be working well.
However in the last couple of days I noiticed that the time was incorrect, it seems the sync for time has switched to normal time too early. Right mouse click to adjust this would not bring up the "adjust time" window. ?Why, unknown. I then decided I would go through "YAST" to do my changes, but now I am unable to load "YAST". I can load it through a terminal window, but there must be some reason why it won't load the GUI? from the menu.? There could be other programs that are also not loading that I have not found.
Q- could something have been lost when I had the H/D reboot issue? And if so is there any way of restoring lost or coruputed OS files?
I have the 10.3 OS on DVD, which is how I installed it, and note that there is a recovey prompt, but need some advise on how to go about it. A total reinstall is not an option at this time until I can get a backup unit running.
I have a US Robotics serial modem, and I have smpppd enabled in system services, with wvdial and kppp installed. When I try to set the modem up using yast, I keep getting hung up by the different screens. First a screen that asks if I need to dial a number to get out. I have to dial 9, so I have that entered. Then a screen that asks for "country" and "provider."
When I try to enter anything, nothing shows in the boxes, so I go to a screen that asks for the phone number, provider, user name and password. When I enter those, it goes to a screen that wants "Connection Parameters", with default settings and the "buttons" at the bottom of the screen "muted," or flattened out, i.e. unusable. That makes it impossible for me to set the information as saved, so it's back to the beginning and sart over, with the same results over and over. How do I get the modem so it dials out?
I'm looking forward to the release of openSUSE 11.4, which I'm looking to install as an Internet facing gateway on a mini-ITX machine with 2 Ethernet cards. As such I've been reading up on the YaST Firewall trying to find out to configure it, and there's one thing I'd like to be able to do: 'stealth' all the firewall ports.
In other words, if someone were to hypothetically do a port scan of my external IP address, I would rather they not know whether any of the ports on my gateway are open or closed, so instead of replying with the status of those ports the packets get dropped. I've been able to do this with a product called Astaro Security Gateway, which I currently have installed on a second hand Dell Optiplex machine, but I am now looking into the possibility of installing this as a virtual machine inside an openSUSE 11.4 host (extra level of security) and would like the same functionality for the host OS.
When I set my DNS servers via Yast>Network Devices>Network Settings>Hostname DNS it accepts the addresses, but then when I check then the next time they are faded out. I set them again, but same results.
In the OpenSUSE documentation I red this very exciting chapter Chapter 6. Network Authentication with Kerberos That mentions "Using LDAP and Kerberos" which combined with NFSv4 would give my office net functionality of a M$ Win network.
We are still on 11.2 (we have no win clients at all) and I was testing different setups of 11.4 in VM, but I can't get YaST to configure the LDAP with Kerberos setup (our current setup does not use Kerberos only LDAP). Unfortunately I could not find any meaningful HOWTO on how to do it in SuSE. The page in docs involves editing config files, but I would like to avoid this, because from my former experience with Samba, as it would mean I cannot use yast anymore and that is sad.
Is there a way to configure LDAP + Kerberos (in terms of issuing of krb tickets at login) with YaST?
PS: I basically need Kerberos for NFS and Intranet site.
I am new to using OpenLDAP on OpenSUSE with the yast configure tool. I have used Openldap on Fedora before and there was a slapd.conf file that I could modify. It appears that the yast does something different. Anyway I need to find out what the rootdn password is, but I cannot find it since there is no slapd.conf file.
it's a couple of weeks I can't perform YaST updates from my openSUSE 11.2. The reason is that YaST wants to connect to repositories "only" through IPv6, but my network doesn't support it. I quoted only because I suppose it prefers v6 over v4, but it keeps trying to connect without switching to v4 or returning error.
Even if I disabled IPv6 from YaST/Networking/Network Settings, I still have a local scope address. I connect to Wifi using KNetworkManager. The TCP/IP stack should know that if an interface has a local scope v6 address and a global v4 address, it's a bad idea to keep trying with v6. Italian mirror, garr.it, of openSUSE repository both has v4 and v6 addresses. If I try to ping opensuse.mirror.garr.it I ping v4, but if I try to telnet that host on port 80 it tries to connect to v6. Same if I try to connect with Firefox.
How to tell Linux that I don't have IPv6? I'm connecting from University of Naples wireless network. While unina has IPv6 via GARR's Teredo tunnel (2001:760::/32 as I remember), it doesn't reach students' network because DHCP server doesn't release IPv6, nor Zeroconf obtains one. I just would like to use classic IPv4 until, at least for now.
My box has to connect to internet using specified http proxy.I have set proxy in both kde control center and yast2 control center. They both tell me the proxy works fine. But when I really try to use yast2 to update my system, it report an error:
Code: Failed to download ./repo/repoindex.xml from [URL] History: - [AbstractCommand.cc:195] URI = [URL]
Even I try Code: export http_proxy=http://XXXX yast in command line,the error still exist.
In debian apt-get and slackware slackpkg,my proxy works fine. So I am sure it is not my fault and maybe it is a bug of yast2.
I'm currently running 11.2 and I configured Proxy settings in the YaST module. It seems that when I use a proxy I have problems updating. It can retrieve some files, but while getting others it fails. Furthermore, I can't establish a connection with the timeserver in the YaST -> NTP configuration module.
My question is if there have been changes from this version to 11.3 regarding the Proxy settings.
I'm having a wireless issue (go figure) where I can't get to the internet, can get to my LAN just fine, but trying to ping anywhere on the net just gives me "network unavailable" message.One thing I've seen noted here time and again is people saying "Use Yast vs Network manager" when I go through the Yast Network Devices GUI it tells me it's using network manager, and I need to use ifup (if I want to use Yast), however I have no clue how to go about changing it from one to the other?
Currently I'm using hard-link to get all the updates and see if that will resolve my problems, but figured I'd learn how I'm supposed to switch it for the future.
after trying several pci and usb network cards none were able to have their ssid broadcasted. The question that i have is: Can a suse box be converted to act as an acces point without the use of atheros based hardware, without switching over to ubuntu and or debian, without the use of openwrt?
When I converted to OpenSUSE 11.2, and went through YaST HTTP Server Configuration, creating my virtual hosts under the Hosts tab, YaST combinedm all int ile,"/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/ip-based_vhosts.conf".I did google and read, [URL]for further assistance.I'd like each virtual host to have its own file under vhosts.d, and wondering why YaST did not do that.The file /etc/apache2/httpd.conf laid out the file structure, and all vhosts.d/*.conf files are included.Is there a way to tell YaST to create separate files for each vhost, or does the user have to manually do it?
Probably because I don't know what to put in some of the fields.So; all I want to do is to run my own e-mail server for my business. The network is set up, the web server is running, but I'm having no end of trouble with YAST and the e-mail server.I have a single server running open suse 11.3 32 bit. It is attached to a modem/router. I have a static IP address for my registered domain. The server has a static IP address (192.168.1.8 in this case). My server is NOT running either a DHCP server nor a DNS server - there is no need, since there is nothing else on this box. It has only one network connection - eth0.
I'm trying to set up an e-mail server. I have been unable to get an 'advanced' implementation to work because all attempts to create a suitable server certificate fail. So for now I'll stick with a 'standard' set up.I don't know what I should put in such fields as 'outgoing mail server' (I've assumed I should use the FQDN of my server);I've no idea what 'masquerading' is for or what I should do with it;I don't know what I'm supposed to put in the 'outgoing mail server' in the 'authentication' section;I don't know what to put in the 'downloading' section;and I don't know what 'accept remote SMTP connections' does.I can get the server to start, but any attempt to retrieve e-mail from it ends in an authorisation failure - the syslog shows a sign-on attempt from my 'real' IP address and some form of numeric userid which cannot be found.So, if anyone can tell me what to put in YAST to make it work, I'd be a very happy chap.
Yes, I can telnet to 'my.server.my.domain' 25, so something must be right. But my Linux knowledge is not enough to get it working properly.
I just installed openSuse11.4 KDE in dual boot with Win7. I have observed that Firefox can open websites but in contrast to this, whenever I try to install rekonq web browser (thats because I find Firefox the slowest browser presently available on earth), Yast says about 593 MB of data to be downloaded and installed. It starts with 3.2 KB/s (or even lesser) speed and further decreases to about 1.3KB/s speed and then ... just stops there (waited for 2-3 hours for downloading just 4-5 MB of data).
