OpenSUSE :: Install Emesene But YaST2 Stops Before Confirmation That Emesene Is Installed?
Dec 15, 2009
I installed openSUSE 11.2 successfully. I tried to install Emesene but YaST2 stops before i have the confirmation that Emesene is installed. I've the Emesene icon in the menu but it won't start, i just wait but nothing happened.
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop, and are pritty new to Ubuntu, but have used windows computers a lot. So if you have a solution to me, pleas make it simple. I have installed emesene and have it running on the start up, and since I'm using a wireless connection, I have delayed the running of the program whit the command:sh -c "sleep 10 && emesene %u &" .So i don't have to attend to the log in possess. but still the window pops up, something not necessary, since i rearly use th im-client in the start. So what i want is for emesene to start only in the tray without the contact windows opening. Is that possible? I would prefer to only add somthing to the command and not have to install a extra program.
When trying to run emesene, this message appears: "Error during login, please retry (Protocol not supported by server)" I am running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. I searched for this particular error message, as well as errors regarding "emesene" in general, but it seems no-one is having problems with ut (or, perhaps no-one is using it).
I have tried the following:Installing emesene from Synaptic Package Manager Installing emesene from this website (as well as from the 'Lucid' page) Installing it via terminal (sudo apt-get install emesene) The error occurs both when using a hotmail adress, as well as a non-hotmail adress. because this programme is in fact not meant to work in Ubuntu 8.04? In that case, I wish someone told me, because I couldn't figure it out.
Sometimes when using Emesene, a contact who I am talking to will appear offline randomly. I normally assume they have gone offline, but then I will receive another message from them as normal so they obviously are not. Then I can't tell when they actually sign off.
I thought it might be because people are setting their status to appear offline. Which on Windows messenger, if you are talking to that person, they will appear as online only to you.
So either Emesene doesn't do this, or there is some other error that is just making people appear offline randomly.
I tried to install the italian version of msn (emesene). First I wrote in the terminal: Code: sudo apt-get install emesene Then it said it was installed, couldn't find it. I went to system, administration, software sources, other softwares and I added the following:
Code: deb [URL] It said that this software was outdated,don't know if now I have msn installed. If so,where do I find the file to open it? I mean,where do I search to find the installed file to open msn,if it's installed.Or else what I have to do?
I added plugins for emesene 2 from their website, but they doesn't show.. this may be silly but I just copied the files into ~/.config/emesene2/ and ~/.config/emesene2/pluginsEmesene assuming that emesene2 would load them um from these folders on startup but it doesn't and I have no idea what to do to load them and try them.
I have a strange problem when using Emesene: whenever I log in, either all or most of my contacts appear offline. This is not true, however, as I am able to talk to them even though they are offline and also, those contacs do appear online in Pidgin.
I ran Emesene 1.6.1 at first and thought that upgrading to 1.6.3 would resolve the issue, but unfortunately that is not the case.
I removed my top panel with the menu (applications, places, system) because all icons were on the wrong place. Then I restored the panel and all applets I'm using, but when I log in to Emesene, the shortcut icon is not showing up. Does anyone know how to restore the Emesene shortcut icon?
is everytime i reboot , my keyboard is reset to USA. im in canada & it pisses me off each time i need to change it also.all my options on EMESENE is the same issue always RESET.it's like if nothing keeps the changes once rebooted.
I've been trying for awhile to install the restricted formats, but when in the download & and install process, YaST2 pops up saying that such and such RPM has failed. I hit ignore, and it happens again and again to all the other packages, bar the odd few that work.
Whenever I tried to install LXDE using the 1-click install, YaST2 just freezes and doesn't respond and doesn't install anything. In fact, YaST2 always freezes whenever trying to install a program with the 1-click install.
So my question is, How do you abort YaST2 from installing because obviously the Abort button doesn't even work! And lastly, how can I install LXDE through the terminal as I always never have a problem installing something through the terminal.
I have problems with running Yast2 under Gnome when I connect via VNC to the computer. The first 20-30 times it worked, but then it simply stopped to work. When switching to another VNC-Server (instead of :1 to :2) it works again for approx. 20-30 times. The behaviour is very much similar to the one described here:
Yast2 startet nicht unter VNC (SUSE 11.1/Gnome)
I use OpenSUSE 11.2 with german language set. The VNC server I use the one that is installed "by default".
When I try to run Yast2 from a terminal under Gnome as normal user I get the following output:
./yast2: Zeile 30: ./lib/YaST2/bin/yast2-funcs: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden ./yast2: Zeile 267: set_lang_from_sysconfig: Kommando nicht gefunden. ./yast2: Zeile 192: check_qt: Kommando nicht gefunden. Qt GUI wanted but not found, failing back to ncurses.
11.3 ; looking to play with DNS; nothing of the kind is showing in Yast networking menus. Checked, and BIND shows as installed. Also, while I'm crying for help: cant see the windows box next to me; can ping it, and could browse to it with File Manager yesterday, but not working today ! Also; I tried KDE desktop (like new things) but it's driving me nuts (menus too small, I lose the choices as I move through submenus) and I'd like to go to Gnome ; how to ?
Whenever I try to install anything from YaST2, it decides to include a lot of extra stuff I don't need. It says it's just added dependencies, but I hardly think the Russian translation for the open office help files counts as a dependency for WINE. This also happens when I try to install the amarok mp3 codec.
This is my second day trying to learn opensuse. My lack of terminology makes it very hard to google for the answers. I need to do this: opensuse:~ # yast2 install postgresql-server apache2 perl texlive perl-DBD-Pg libapr-util1-dbd-pgsql I know about yast, however this looks like something that needs to ran from terminal.
I'll get to the point straight away... I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 on a HD that already has Win 7 on it.I left out 15.52 GB of space just to install Opensuse but when I select that partition (which of course is empty) and tell YaST2 to install OpenSuse there it tells me there isn't enough space. Is 15 GB not enough!?inimum requirements where supposed to be 3GB I think...S this is how the disk is devided... Primary partition of 50GB for win 7, 400 of Logic partition for Programs, and supposedly 15GB for OpenSuse...
Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are : From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm After installed suse linux. error messages for all options in yast2.
The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.
So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?
I just installed 11.4 and was adding a new repository which I entered incorrectly. Yast2 complained and did not add it to the repository list. Now when I run Yast2 Software Management.
I get the following error message... "There was an error in the repository initialization. Error refreshing service Packman 11.4 (vaval.com - Islam Resources and Information. This website is for sale! Parse error: repoindex.xml Opening and ending tag mismatch: meta line 2 and noscript"
Since this line does not show up in my repository list I cannot remove it. How do I edit the data file directly and where is it located?
It's been a while since I've use linux (specifically suse). But my wife and I are expecting our first child and our office/second bedroom is now being converted into the baby room. I built the computer that is currently in there and it is a really nice one that I do not want to get rid of. Two 500GB Sata2 drives and 8Gigs of RAM (not to mention my quad-core Phenom AMD processor and sweet asus motherboard) -- I just can't get rid of it. So what I planned to do was turn it into a small home server. I did some research and kept coming back to using opensuse as the server. I read this article The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials and it seemed to have just about everything I'd like to do (maybe some extras that I don't really need, but might in the future). Everything was going fine until I got to a certain point. The install went fine, and I was starting to customize some of the settings for my own home setup. Now, the problem...
I've gotten to page 3 of the tutorial The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] - Page 3 | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
and I am installing packages through yast2, and all the packages installed fine except for 'compat-readline4'. I think this is a form of command line editor or something to do with that. I am sure I am going to need it to finish the server set up, but I can't get it installed anywhere. I've tried to install it by pointing directly to the mirror found at rpm.pbone.net and still I get nowhere.
Yast2 auto refresh seems to fail everytime I run it. Even though I installed all the other packages, I get an error message that says it can't get the medium. When I look at the details of the error it says it can't resolve the host for downloads.opensuse.org.
I was running openSUSE 10.3 using yast2-firstboot and everything worked perfectly. I have since upgraded to 11.2 and after a post on this forum I was able to get yast2-firstboot to run. The control file was moved to touch /var/lib/YaST2/reconfig_system instead of touch /etc/reconfig_system. All is well there and firstboot does run. I have a script that basically sets up the hostname, IP addresses, etc on the machines. This worked in 10.3 but in 11.2 it doesn't execute. I can manually run the script which I have defined in the /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file. The SCRIPT_DIR="/usr/share/firstboot/scripts" I noticed a new entry this file labeled - # Action that should be done after the firstboot sequence finishes.
FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_ACTION="" Should I place my script here? I read the doc and you can use reboot but need my script to run first. To I just put the name of the script or the entire path to the script if that is the place to put it. On a side note. Does anyone know where the default FIRSTBOOT_FINISH_FILE="" is located? I want to use that as a template but change and add a few lines to this. I just can't locate it anywhere on the system.
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.
When I ran YaST | Software Management | Package | Update if newer Package Available this morning I get this message:
Code: #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2011-01-22 09:40:42 #### libxine1-codecs-1.1.19-2.pm.48.15.i586 requires libpostproc.so.51, but this requirement cannot be provided uninstallable providers: libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586[ftp.uni-erlangen.de-suse] [ ] break libxine1-codecs by ignoring some of its dependencies [ ] Following actions will be done: install libpostproc51-0.6.26387svn-1.pm.2.1.i586 despite the inferior architecture .....

What is it telling me? What should I do? What are the implications?
I ssh to a remote server which is running in SUSE. And I want to install apache2.0 there. Then I used yast2 to install it. But after installing it, I go to the terminal and type" apache -version" to check if apache is installed there. And it said "-bash: apache: command not found". I don't if I haven't successfully installed it, or I have installed it but just haven't put it into PATH yet. So, my problem is that can anyone tell how to check if I have installed it? If I have installed it, then what is the path of the directory it locates? And if I haven't probably installed it, then can you tell me the how I can installed it? And I am asked to install apache mod_wsgi as well.
