OpenSUSE :: Restore Flash In FF V3.6.18 And V5.0?

Jul 18, 2011

I just got a Firefox update from 3.6.17 to 3.6.18. Now I cannot view any Flash vids. I get the "Additional plugins are required to display all of the media on this page - Install Missing Plugins" message. I select the "Install Missing Plugins" button, select Adobe Flash Player, go through all of the steps, and receive "success!". And I get the "Additional plugins are required to display all of the media on this page - Install Missing Plugins" message. "What?" I exclaim, "I just installed it!" I have done this more than once.What is required to actually get functionality that I already had?

OpenSUSE :: How To Restore Defaults With Re-installing OS?

Apr 2, 2011

While making sure that vmware used runlevel 5, I did not realize to simply check/uncheck radial buttons at bottom of frame because I first saw numbers across the top of the frame; checking, unchecking these seems to apply run levels to all services; since I may have disrupted default settings for some services, I am not sure I did this, but I may have done so before I saw what I should have done, two questions:

(1) Does it matter?
(2) How would I restore defaults with re-installing OS?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Restore System

Apr 4, 2011

I am new to openSUSE (and to Linux). I have try Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and ended with openSUSE that seems to be the one I like. But I have some problem now. The system seems to hang on boot and after searching the Internet I found thread about ATI display driver (and I have ATI) so I installed ATI drivers. The system got worse and playing videos start to be not as it should be (and often freezing). I decided to uninstall these drivers to get my system back as it was but ended with more problem. Now my system don't start. I can boot in some kind of command prompt but nothing else.

Can I do something to restore the system or will I have to reinstall the system? I don't know if I want to reinstall it. I am using a very slow Internet-connection (air-card) and I have had so much headache on the other Linux (before I did end on openSuSE). I like openSuSE (even there is some minor things, like I cannot change my default browser to Opera, a Browser I have been using for almost 10 years but I still can use the Opera so it is a minor thing).

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox Windows System Restore?

Feb 11, 2010

It generally works fine - a couple of issues which I'm trying to get resolved elsewhere.My question is this: My laptop currently dual-boots Windows 7 and openSUSE, with openSUSE being the default. I have XP as a guest under VB. Is it possible for me to create a system image of the Windows 7 operating system, install W7 as a guest under Linux and then restore the backed-up OS so that I would have W7 as a guest (no more XP) but with the same configuration / apps as the original OS?In summary, this is wat I want to achieve:urrent:Dual-boot openSUSE 11.1 & Windows 7VBOx Guest = Windows XP Desired:Dual-boot openSUSE 11.1 & Windows 7VBox Guest = Windows 7 (identical config as the dual-boot version)

OpenSUSE Install :: Kde Dead - How To Restore It Without Reinstall 11.1

May 4, 2010

After have the gui completly f***d up with an upgrade that messed up kde, I'm about to restore the original kde from the installation dvd (11.1) but there is no particular options to only restore kde, so I have concerns concerning some of those applications compiled and installed after the original installation (two years backward). I also updated the kernel to make things work with vmware...I don't want to loose time to recompile all the different stuff I need to work with linux.

Is there a way to be sure (by renaming /usr /bin /sbin for example) to keep the kernel alive (with libraries and headers) and all applications that were working very good before I did this update for kde (I won't do this again trust me)?The kde group never told me how restore kde from the original dvd so I'm a little disappointed because the system is working ok in run level 3.only kde is dead.I'll dig deeper before doing the reinstallation of suse 11.1...

OpenSUSE Install :: Backup / Restore And GRUB 11.3 X86-64?

Nov 5, 2010

I do regular full and incremental backups using dar. All disk volumes are labeled and mounted by label. There is no other operating system installed. I built a new system but due to having to RMA a disk, I built the openSUSE system on a disk from the backup cycle. This Maxstor disk has problems which is why it was moved into an external box and the backup system. I now have a replacement disk and wish to replace the Maxstor before it dies. I initially tried a disk to disk clone with clonezilla but this died complaining that a small target partition was smaller than the source partition. It had created the partition and the start and end sectors were identical. There are no problems with the new disk.

I decided that it would be a good opportunity to test a full system disk restore from the backups. I have in the past restored individual files and partitions but have never restored onto a bare boot disk. I have restored and labeled all 6 partitions. The partition containing / has been marked as active. /boot is included in the partition containing /. fstab is valid, menu.lst is valid, needs editing but this is not a problem.

What do I need to do to make this disk bootable. I have looked through the GRUB documentation but if you try some standard GRUB commands in 11.3 you get messages saying don't do this use YAST. I have seen other suggestions ranging from trying to start the not supported system repair option to using dd to copy the MBR which seemed to trash the partitions in the users extended partition.

The YAST bootloader displays "boot from the root partition". I assume that this is currently what is happening rather than what YAST thinks might be a good idea for next time. I suspect that all I have to do is dd the first 512 bytes of the root partition. If this is the case I can add this to the backup process. While I automate backups I do not automate restores. Each restore tends to be different and I am not sure of the best way getting grub to work on a bare disk restore.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox And Thunderbird: Upgrade - Restore From Prior HD?

Aug 17, 2010

I had FF and TB running on a desktop computer which was on Suse 11.0. That computer has gone to the Great Interrupt in the Sky. The hard drive still works, and I can hook it up to the replacement (laptop) with an eSATA cable. Thus, all of my email, settings, bookmarks, etc are sitting there waiting to go back to work.

My new laptop is on Suse 11.2, with the FF version which came on the DVD (from Linux Pro Magazine in February). I would like to A), load the latest vers of FF and TB onto this laptop, and B), move my older FF and TB stuff to run here. I am little more than the ignorant appliance operator so derided by Linux gurus in the "Why New Users Give Up" thread. I want to learn more, but my primary need is PRODUCTIVITY, so what I need is an 1D10T-level stepthrough to get done what I need to do.

OpenSUSE :: Restore Evolution Data From A Previous Version?

Aug 25, 2010

This is to request assistance or information as to why the evolution application will not accept the evolution-backup-tar.gz file from a previous version.

Situation: I upgraded by way of a fresh install from openSuSE 11.2 to 11.3 (GNOME desktop).
Before upgrading, I produced the above mentioned backup file so that I could import all the mail, addresses etc. into the new application.

Result: it does not work. The process starts up seemingly normal but then simply sits there forever with the message "evolution shuts down" - but it does'nt. I have to kill it to stop it.

I am looking forward to a resolution since it would be a real pity if I lost the mail history.

OpenSUSE :: Backup And Restore Local Folders In K Mail?

Mar 4, 2011

How to backup and restore local folders in K Mail. I understand that this is a rudimentary question-- under K Mail in 11.2 there is no backup and restore option for local folders (that I have been able to find anyway). I use 11.2 on this machine where I do all e mail, browsing and everything pretty much internet related. I am going to upgrade to 11.4 in another week and want to make sure that I understand backup and restore procedures for K case something untoward happens during the upgrade to 11.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: Restore Windows 7 And Configure GRUB?

Jan 29, 2010

My problem is that I have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Yast resized my Windows partitions, which seemed to upset Windows as I had to go to my Windows Recovery Disc to restore it. When Windows was restored it did something so that GRUB no longer appeared. So I did a system recovery for openSUSE 11.2 which then removed Windows 7 from GRUB! Now I'm trying to restore Windows 7 and configure GRUB so that Windows and openSUSE will stop fight for boot supremacy and play nice with each other. Here are my Yast2 Boot Loader settings:

Section Management Settings
SUSE LINUX (type)image (/dev/sda6, root=dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST9320320AS_5SX4PRAS-part6)
Failsafe SUSE LINUX (type)image (/dev/sda6, root=dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST9320320AS_5SX4PRAS-part6)
Boot Loader Installation Settings
Boot Loader: GRUB
Boot Loader Location: Boot from Extended Partition
Disk Order: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST9320320AS_5SX4PRAS

OpenSUSE Install :: Remove 11.1 From Drive And Restore Boot?

Feb 23, 2010

I have used Ubuntu 8.04 and uprgaded to the new 9.10 both using the gneom desktop. I wanted to work with KDE and SUSE so I bought the Linux Format magazine with the DVD 126 which had SUSE 11.1 with the KDE desk top. I have a Toshiba L455 laptop and had windows 7 on 110 gb and had ubuntu 8.04 on 50 gb and ubuntu 9.10 ob 48 gb. I had ran the installer and it identified both linux systems and I selected to install SUSE in the space allocated to 8.04. It only boots to suse with the option to select windows. It showes 9.10 mixed with suse. I have not used suse. Is there an uninstall that will allow me to start over with the installation after creating a partition first. How can I get 9.10 to boot or how can I recover data from it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Win7 Ate The SUSE After System Restore?

Mar 29, 2011

Hardware issue forced me to restore Win7. Installed EasyBCD to boot into openSUSE, no work. Boot puppy, it shows space where SUSE should be as unallocated space. I think Puppy doesn't see ext4 though. Can't boot live KDE off USB for some reason, though I originally installed from that exact medium. Tried ACPI=off and nomodeset. Error says trouble mounting clic filesystem, mounted as read only. Something like that. Then reboot 120secs, which it never actually does. I don't want to reinstall SUSE if I don't have to.
