OpenSUSE :: Yast2 Control Center Broken After Update?

Mar 4, 2010

About a week ago, I installed all the updates that popped up. I didn't actually look at what was being installed.

Since then, most of the items in the Yast2 Control centre won't run and just pop up an error box with the following (Firewall):

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_construct NULL not valid
YaST got signal 6 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/firewall.ycp:20

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-volume-control Broken After Yum Update?

May 19, 2010

My challenge today is a broken sound mixer in gnome. Yesterday I run 'yum update' and it installed about 200 updates. This morning I rebooted, when double-clicking the 'speaker' icon in the top right corner of my gnome and I got a "crash".

(I have to go to mixer and enable 'front speakers' before I get any sound - thats something else i'd like to fix one day) Here is what bug-buddy has to say:

Distribution: CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
Gnome Release: 2.16.0 2007-02-18 (CentOS)
BugBuddy Version: 2.16.0
Memory status: size: 265785344 vsize: 265785344 resident: 10158080 share: 7

[Code]...

Any advice would be great - i think I should start by reinstalling the gnome mixer, but not sure which 'yum' that is contained in. I did do some reading about rolling back, but I read that is by default disabled!! Arh! why! only when you broke something you realise you need to turn it on.... o well hey ho.

OpenSUSE Install :: Is There Tool Can Use In Control Center?

Mar 19, 2011

I installed OpenSuse 11.4 Gnome on my Toshiba laptop. A couple of things i noticed while trying the live CD first is that the file manager recognized my NTFS partitions and after I installed I expected it to do the same. Also, while installing I thought I selected a secure logon with username & password. After installation it boots right into the desktop GUI. I haven't had a lot of time playing with OpenSuse yet and I have browsed through some threads and I couldn't find a way to configure a secure logon and do I have to mount the Windows partitions in the Command Line or is there a tool I can use in the control center?

OpenSUSE :: OS11.2/KDE 4.4: Akonadi Control Center Missing

Feb 18, 2010

I recently upgraded my SuSE 11.2 to KDE4.4 from "download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/". Most things run fine, however the "Akonadi Control Center" does not appear in my KDE "System Settings". Akonadi itself seems to run, at least Contact uses it for the addresses.

I searched for all "akonadi" packages, but I didn't find ones which I do not have installed.

OpenSUSE :: Yast2, Firefox, Thunderbird Don't Work After Update?

Nov 22, 2010

Some time ago I did an automatic update and after that firefox, thunderbird and yast2 don't start. It's not that there is an error message or sth. Their icons just start jumping and after a while it stops without anything opened. I tried even removing the zilla directories and so on but it doesn't help. Of course I tried to simply reboot the machine and strangely enough, still does not work. Opera works though and I am ok with that, however yast2 not opening is more annoying. I do all the stuff that I want from the console, but of course that's not the point

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Control Center - Error Accessing?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm having trouble with Yast, I noticed today that I can't open the control centre from the desktop (along with install/remove software) when opening from the command line I get. the following output:

** (y2controlcenter-gnome:9050): WARNING **: error accessing /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_command_line [Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)]

Yast2 control centre opens, but none of the options load when selected. I have tried updating everything through Zypper which didn't work. (aka zypper ref/up etc). Then I tried removing yast and installing it again. When I did this (and downloaded the Yast control centre again the above errors, reappeared.

OpenSUSE Install :: Control Center Not Saving Settings Upon Logout (11.3)

Nov 29, 2010

something odd I've noticed with 11.3 on my laptop--if I adjust my resolution through the Monitor applet in the Control Center or if I make changes to my Touchpad settings through the Control Center, the changes are lost when I log into my laptop. Do you think I botched an installation?

I've tried to determine what actual files are affected via the two applets with the thought that maybe I don't have the necessary permissions on them or that I can throw a bandaid on it with a start-up task to overwrite them. Alas, I've got nuthin'

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 - Yast2 Software Management Not Working After Update

Jan 9, 2010

I did a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.1 i586. Everything worked fine. Then I used YaST2 Software Management to add a package. Worked fine. Then I did the Online Update to get the Installation up to date. Worked fine so far. I had to restart the Machine because of the Kernel Bugfix Update. Since then, the YaST2 Software Management is not working any more.

When I do start it, it starts the software manager, shows the "Search Phrase" and so on but when I enter a word and press "RETURN" the software manager immediately closes and takes me back to the YaST2 start screen. No messages, no warnings, nothing. With zypper I am able to install software but no longer within YaST2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update Fails - Loop - Flash Player - Yast2-core

Aug 27, 2011

I am trying to update Flash-player and yast2-core as prompted by today's update icon.

I am now faced with a loop that goes like this:
1) click on icon
2) window pops up, "2 packages selected"
3) click on apply, subwindow pops up
4) click on continue, "waiting for authentication"
5) after minutes of waiting, click on cancel, nothing happens
6) click on icon killing subwindow
7) now back to 2)

Aborting the process, starting at 1) again, same mess

Conclusions:
a) No idea what was going on

b) Use Yast instead of clicking update icon

Ubuntu :: YaST2 - More Advanced Control Panel?

Sep 27, 2010

I'd switched to OpenSuse around ubuntu 8.04, for a number of reasons. I thought I'd give (k)ubuntu another try, cos so much software gets released that's *ubuntu compatible these days, almost as much as is windows compatible. So far it's not bad, but I've got one gripe, that was one of the things that drove me away from kubuntu before. All the advanced user graphical admin stuff is essentially hidden! In OpenSuse, you've got Yast2, which gives you absolutely all your admin stuff in one "control panel". Kubuntu used to have this, in kcontrol, but that's long since gone.

Is there something like Yast2 for kubuntu? As an example of something I could easily do in Yast2 and can't find an easily graphical way to do in kubuntu 10.04-I swapped out one of the hard drives in my system. Now every time I boot, the bootloader is looking for the now missing hard drive, and I have to tell it to skip it. I know I could manually edit the file, but I'd rather have a nice graphical config tool that lets me configure things. I can't seem to find such a thing anywhere in my kubuntu install tho.

Another example-there doesn't seem to be a gui partitioner installed. I can just use parted from the command line, but like I said, I prefer a graphical interface. I installed partitonmanager, but still. A graphical partitioner seems like a pretty crucial thing to have in an OS. Maybe I just missed it someplace, but that comes back to my main point, which is that all the power user graphical stuff seems to be missing, or really well hidden; and it would be nice if all that stuff was in a single place. So, any control panel sort of app, that includes the sort of stuff Yast2 has on OpenSuse?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: GNOME - Control Center Sound "Not Responding"

Jan 7, 2010

Fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.2 and I'm having issues with sound. Installed what I needed for various codecs (mp3, dvd etc etc). Sound now plays through applications yet when I go to Control Center and try to adjust the Sounds, I get a dialog box that says "Waiting for Sound System to Respond" and it just hangs there.

This is an old Shuttle box with Nvidia onboard everything. I've selected all pulse and alsa packages and did a reinstall on them to no avail.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.5.4 Update Broken Dependency

Dec 4, 2010

On my opensuse 11.2 pc, the Decmber 3rd KDE 4.5.4 update proceeded to install all updates except libkdecore4 (and maybe others). libkdecore4 now has a dependency on liblzma5 which is not available. The result is an all white desktop with boxes where the widgets should be.

I found this bug report: [url]

But I can't find liblzma5 in the repository that is listed in the 2nd posting.

Code:

OpenSUSE :: GStreamer Broken After Update?

May 18, 2011

I'm using KDE and after some update GStreamer seems to be broken. Firstly it was unable to play sound at all, and I've got around this by changing Phonon preferred engine to Xine. But Clementine is still unable to play with error message:

Clementine Error
GStreamer could not create the element: volume. Please make sure that you have installed all necessary GStreamer plugins (e.g. OGG and MP3)

I've already read this and this topic, but none of the things, proposed to try, worked for me.

Ubuntu :: Assistance With ATI Catalyst Control Center

Mar 26, 2011

Today is my sort of third day with the OS and I'm still loving it. I've been able to get the hang of quite a few things in Maverick but there is one thing that I really need help with.Back in Win7, I had the very same situation and after a week of messing around I was able to get it working; it was sheer luck, but hey, who cares?

I'm running an ASUS M4A785-M motherboard with an integrated ATI 4200 video card and using a 32" Toshiba TV with HDMI video and sound, which Ubuntu was kind enough to download the proper drivers for all on its own; Win7 didn't. Problem is, the best resolution I can use is 1920x1080, but at that point some of the text looks just too small, so I use the 1776x1000 resolution instead. Still, the grand majority of websites don't fill the browser. I have to manually zoom in each time so they can look properly. I know that after a week of tinkering in Win7 I got it working just fine without the need to zoom in on pages. I can't remember for the life of me how I did it and I had accidentally formatted the entire HDD once and all those settings got lost.Lower resolutions make it worse too. On some of them, the actual computer window won't even fill the TV unless I change certain settings, and then it still looks horrible because everything gets stretched out sideways and gets squashed and even if the PC screen doesn't fill the whole tv, it overcasts itself in the middle; as if I was using a much smaller monitor and it was overcasting.

This might mean you need to manually fix this package.: ", after looking around the forums & trying many of the techniques including creating an empty file & running aptitude -f install as well as a few more commands mentioned in various threads, all to no avail, I am stuck with the same message.

Is there any way to totally uninstall & reinstall apt getting rid of any changes that would be causing this or is there a simpler fix I have just overlooked ?.
