I am installing SLES on a new server with raid 05, after I went with the setup it copies all the files until It gets to install grub. It gets me an error message installing grub and it wont let me move forward.
I am new to linux . i am trying to install SUSE linux 10 SLES. all the steps are clearly installed but. the final step- Hardware configuration step failed.in this final stage system takes more time and restarts.
Several months ago my PowerEdge 2850 SLES 9 server response time gradually slows after reboot. Daily the server seems to get slower and gets to the point where I have to reboot to clear the problem. To address this I added addtional 2G of memory, but issue is now worse. I have to reboot daily.
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?
I have installed 11.2. When it starts to boot it runs through its startup and then all I get is a blank screen. I noticed in startup just before it says starting HAL it says CPU frequency not supported. I am assuming that this is the issue. I have run 11 and 11.1 on this box and have not had a problem with this. I have a P4 3.00 GHz with 2 GB of RAM.
My yast crashes just as soon as started installing flash. Do have flash saved as .tar.gz on desktop. What is the easiest way to install it? Also searched in Tutorials. Just patching as I go until I build a new PC.
install the firefox 3.6 on opensuse Desktop edition. As my new application software is only supporting 3.6 or greater version of mozilla firefox. i was forced to upgrade or to reinstall my current firefox (version 188.8.131.52). kindly help me and please tell me what is the procedure to install forefox 3.6 or higher version in opensuse 10. i cannot upgrade opensuse 10 to opensuse 11 or 11.3 as my company wont allow me to make modifications in the operating system. i have the latest version of firefox downloaded. the format is tar.gz2 while i am trying to extract it. i find errors in extracting even after extracting successfully i find permission errors.
I have recently got a new computer, and I have been trying to install openSUSE 10.3 on it. But, the screen will go blank and become unresponsive if I boot with the default options. When I switch to text mode, it boot and stops when it outputs time: pit clocksource has been installed. Switching to safe settings will make no difference. Right now, I am using openSUSE 11.1, but I'm not very happy with it, so I intend to replace it with 10.3. I'm not sure what the pit clocksource is, and can it be disabled, or some workaround?
I've been trying to install OpenSuse 11.0 on my ten-year-old Gateway desktop. It has been showing this screen for approximately thirty minutes. In case you can't read it, it says 'Decompressing Linux... done. Booting the Kernel.' I booted from the CD, and the OpenSuse screen came up, and I selected 'Installation' from the menu. And here we are.
I Can't install SLES 9 SP3 (Novell OES SP2) on HP ProLiant DL 320 G5p
SATA 82801GR controller LSI Logic SAS1068 Fusion-MPT PCI-X HP 8 Internal Port SAS HBA with RAID SATA CD-Rom TEAC DV-W28S-RS INTEL e1000 2 port NIC
It seems no CD-Rom was found by SLES as well as no NIC was found. So I can't start install nor using CD or LAN. I started booting from OES SP2 CD 1. The boot loader started normally, but when I chose Installation it says Could Not Find the SLES 9 Installation CD. Activating Manual Installation.
Here in the manual installation screen I check System Information - Hard Disks and CD-Roms It says No Hard Disks or CD-Rom drives have been detected so far Then
1. I erased the BIOS/HD through RBSU
2. downlaod Driver Diskette for HP U320 SCSI Adapter, SAS HBA with RAID, SCxxXe and SCxxGe series HBA (x86 and AMD32) for SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
3. startfed installation again.
Now I can see in the manual installation screen - System Information - Hard Disks and CD-Roms MY RAID 1 ARRAY 278GB, but still NO CD-ROM, NO NICS at ALL. Also I have recently updated all firmware, tried changing CD/DVD-Rom adding ordinary SATA HDD, and the result is the same - no CD, no HDD is seen. So I suppose the linux kernel doesn't support my motherboard SATA channels? Additionally, I tried to install SLES 10 SP3 (OES2) and it was success, all the hardware were detected including CD and NICs How can I add driver prior to installation or install using my array HDD?
I have implimented SugarCRM on a SUSE 10 box . Every thing goes ok but in the SugarCRM ,it's saying :
Error: Could not connect to the Sugar Server. check your Proxy Settings value in the System Settings admin panel. Last attempted connection @ 10/11/2010 06:37pm and unable to setup email inside that. But the system is neither have proxy setting and internet runs fine outside SugarCRM. IN RHEL,CentOS all run ok but not in SUSE ?
I just tried installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto my Playstation 3. I installed the otheros.bld fine (which I downloaded via a link provided on the OpenSUSE website). I then inserted my 32-bit Gnome CD for installation and restarted my system. Then on startup, a blue/grey screen appears. Here are the links to the screenshot (sorry for poor quality):
[Full Screen] [url]
[Top Half] [url]
[Bottom Half] [url]
As you can see, the only option is for me to select the gameboot, which obviously takes me back to the Playstation XMB. There are keys at the bottom of the screen, but this is only to change the resolution. So I have no option to install the OS.
Does anybody know why this screen appears and have any ideas on how I can get around this problem to install SUSE onto my Playstation?
Have loved using v11.0 of Opensuse for years, lately I have noticed over time 7 of my 11 repo's have stopped/failed...does this means Novell-community has/will stop supporting this version and I should move on to a higher version ??? There hasnt been any change in my linux box for years.
Example: Refresh failed: Error: Could not refresh repository 'openSUSE-11.0-Oss': Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s) History: - File '/content' not found on medium [URL]' Error: Could not refresh repository 'openSUSE-11.0-Non-Oss': Valid metadata not found
Yast2 appears to be broken. Whenever I open the YaST control center and attempt to install new software, I am greeted with this error message. When I click on the "Install New Software" shortcut from the start menu, nothing happens.
I researched this error message and found that apparently I can install software via Zypper, but all the commands to enter in the terminal result in a message about an unrecognized command.
It seems to be related to some kind of gcc library missing, but I went into YAST and I've installed the kernel sources, headers, devel, and a bunch of other things I found in various forums. I consistently get an error message about GLIBC_2.11 not found, even if I just do gcc -v. Contents of config.log:
We have a server for which the root password had been lost, and there were no other user accounts set up. Yesterday evening I attempted to reset the root password by booting from the install CD and using VI to clear the root password in the passwd and shadow files. I then rebooted, and the system has halted with an 'FSCK failed. Please repair manually and reboot' error, with a prompt to 'Enter root password' below. But of course the root password isn't known (I had expected it to blank after editing the passwd and shadow files, but it doesn't work), so I have no way of logging on.
I am unable to get a knoppix poor mans install to boot using grub and opensuse 11.3. I have tried the same method on another box, same opensuse 11.3 and it boots fine. However, no matter what partition I put the knoppix files in on the problem box, it is the same error. I also have several opensuse kernels listed in the grub menu that were added when the kernel was updated, so the knoppix grub entry is off the screen. I have to down arrow to list the knoppix entry. I read that with this kind of error using ubunto as the host system, that running update-grub will force grub to look for bootable kernels and add it to the menu of boot choices. Does the same fix apply to opensuse 11.3? I have two versions of puppy linux working on this box as a poor mans install, so I am at a loss why it will not see the knoppix kernel. Can it be a problem of too many kernels listed in the menu.lst file? This box is a live update from opensuse 11.0.
Attempts to do a mount -t nfs4 servername:/share /mnt hang. Performing an strace of the mount shows that the mount command is attempting to find /sbin/mount.nfs4 The nfs server, client, and util packages are installled. Did ps -ef | grep idmapd; ps -ef | grep gssd to check client side daemons and things look good. Not using gssd right now tho. Just want to get the thing to mount. Firewalls are not running. Doing a showmount -e servername reports the shares as being offered. I can mount it using nfs v3 protocol.
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.
