I'm stuck in the "log off" mode. I don't get the shut down menu. It started when I turned the computer on today. I got a verbose boot up and had to login and enter password and run "startx". Then I got a gray screen before the splash screen.
I had been trying to get alsa to start in the "runlevel" section yesterday, could I have messed something up in there causing this?
I have just installed opensuse 11.3 on my box and it refuses to shut down. It shows a tty screen with the message "power down" but wont power off. After searching the web I found no solution until I compared the "halt" scripts of versions 11.3 and 11.2 (they are located in /etc/init.d). Both scripts differ only by a couple of lines that make reference to raid devices. As I am not using any RAID array in my BIOS, I copied my halt script (version 11.2) on top of the version 11.3 halt script and my box started to shut down and power off nicely! At least for me it worked!
I've got several language multimedia CD-Rom's, made for Windows 95/98/98 SE and 2000, that I'm using by means of my daughter's old PC (Win 98 SE O.S.). However I noticed, also, that you can perfectly use them even with Windows Vista. What I'd like to know is if you can use them even with Suse/Novell and (why not?) OpenSuse Linux.
OK... I tried everything i could think of... but i still cannot get my Open SUSE 11.1 to mount my samba share at boot! I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S. My shares originate from a Windows Server 2003 RC2 machine, and it's dns server doesn't work correctly... so my mount command is
mount -t //192.168.x.x/files/ /nET/ -o username=linux,password=xxxxxx please let me know what other info you need... I don't have the internet, so it will be tommorow b4 i see this again!!! Thanks
When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory.
how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.
I have a disturbing problem with my monitor which goes to sleep (or ??) after few minutes if my comp is not used and most of the time I have to restart my comp.I disabled everything in Powersave , but nothing. I did have that problem in previous versions of SUSE, but somehow, I solved that. I cant remember what I did then.
I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.
I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.
PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2/' My 11.2 won't update and gives this error. Anyone know how to fix it?
New Suse 11.3 installation with Gnome desktop. Added K3B using Yast2, and after completing the install of K3B, there is no icon for K3B! Instead there is an "X" and the text for K3B in it.From the main menu -> more applications -> multimedia, is where the K3B icon is.Yast2 is supposed to install any dependencies needed or warn if it can not find any missing dependencies. What is missing, or is it a permission problem? All the other application icons seem fine.
When I install Crossover Linux 9.0 Pro (from 2010) onto OpenSuse 10.2 (2k6), why does the PC shut off in the middle every-time during the installation? The motherboard gives a long beep too. Works fine when I don't install anything.
I have been searching for 2 days and cannot find an answer. Apparently Sax2 isn't available in 11.3. It looks as if many are having the same difficulty. I've tried xrandr and tried to edit /etc/X11/Xorg.conf with no success.Copying a working xorg conf file might be a fix, I don't know.
to get flash 10 working. I just decided to update to 11.3. Bought a 8.0GB USB stick to copy files to. USB DISK icon on visible on Desktop. mounted on /media/USB DISK Clicking on device properties it is read only. I can change permissions but that is only temporary. Looking under my computer it is formated as vfat device name is /dev/sdb
I can't copy any files to it. Can't see in terminal even being root as well. Almost started the Partitioner in Yast but didn't want to accidently crash the system. That WOULD be my luck Can't find a way to format it via GUI interface. Can I use something like fdisk in terminal. I guess I need to format it as ext3.
I have SuSE 11 box. I notice that there's an entry in /etc/services that shows windream running on port 534. Can someone tell what is windream? I tried to google but it keeps bring up German website or something.
OK, so basically my problem is that I can't log out, shut down, or restart my computer through the GUI. The thing is, it used to work. Note: this started happening right after I put in the lock / logout widget, but it's really a pain to have to go through the Kickoff menu to lock the screen each time, and leaving my files, online accounts, and what's on my screen open to anyone who wants to snoop is not an option. I may have to just suck it up and lock the screen the old-fashioned way, but only as a last resort.
Configuration: An older Gateway (idk the exact specs) desktop machine with Windows XP and Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic (dual-boot)
Since a long time I have a problem when shutting down my computer. I have ubuntu 8.04 installed, and I do install regularly all the updates including new kernels, etc. Here are the symptoms: After pressing "shutdown" (or issuing a command in terminal) it happens (always) that the screen is still working at the end of shutdown process (ubuntu progress bar is at minimum and it stays visible). Also, CPU fan is still working. However, power and HDD lights go off.
The only possible way to shutdown computer at that moment is holding power button for 5 seconds. However, restart works OK. Now, I am sure that shutdown worked earlier fine, but unfortunately I cannot remember when the problems started: either when I installed 8.04 or after installing some of the kernel updates. Configuration: Asus 5pgl-mx motherboard, 1.5 GB ram, nvidia graphic card (sorry, not sure what model), etc.
I have had an issue with the log out since yesterday. instead of shutting down the computer, the computer loaded the GDM. The only way to shut down is to click the log out on the GDM. What to do to resolve it?
I am trying to connect to my network. I am dual-booting with windows 7 ultimate and that connects just fine. When I plug in my ethernet cable to the LAN adapter of the motherboard nothing happens. In the network manager it doesn't even acknowledge something has been connected (ie no eth0 or anything). I'm guessing that I don'tave a driver for it installed under linux. The adapter is the Marvell Yukon 8059 (88E8059 I think)
i am having linux suse 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1). when i start my pc there is a window comeing asking me option like linux floppy linux - safe settings. on selecting linux suse runs and get halt with a message Welcome to suse linux 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1. below that another message as(none) login : asking for login when i put my login i have again this message Welcome to suse linux 8.2 (i586) kernel 2.4.20-4gb-athlon (tty1. below that another message as(none) login : asking for login what should i do i cannot start my Suse operating software.
If hypothetically I deleted my gpg keys and am not getting updates is there anything I can do to get updates? Almost all software installed is from the repositories where openSuse employees works (official repositories). I have a few packages from openbuild but not too many.
I am trying to read up on security now and see how the keys work so I don't run into this again. It happened during my paranoid attack when I realized I installed packages from the non official repositories and became nervous about having done so.
There are so many virus and malicious software threats now it is making me nervous (especially for XP) and I feel the need to do a little more reading.
