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.
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.
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.
Complete n00b here. I am running openSUSE 11.3 and trying to load drivers for a network card. When I try to make install, I am getting this error:
Code: Makefile:69: *** Linux kernel source not found in any of these locations: Makefile:70: Makefile:71: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g. Makefile:72: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again. How do I install the kernel-devel?
I have installed Open Suse 11.1 on two different machines. One contains an ATI X850 video card, and the other contains an ATI X1950 video card. I updated the ATI drivers on the 850 card and it works like a dream. I updated the ATI drivers on the 1950 card and Suse becomes unusable. System works fine before the update. Before the update I ran it at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. I thought I would lower it to 1024 x 768 to see if that would help, but it does not. I dual boot with WinXP, and card works fine with that setup at 1280 x 1024, so I would suspect this is a specific problem with my Suse setup as opposed to a Motherboard issue.
I just did an install from opensuse 11.0 to 11.3 using the live web install. After the install, I found that the monitor always reverts to 87hz refresh rate and must be manually adjusted to 60hz. Also, there is no adjustment for the monitor resolution beyond 1024 x 768. I can not find the video card info in yast like it was before. Do I need to add the ati sources in yast? Will that give me a way to adjust the video card properties? Video card is the ati rage. Box is a dell optiplex pentium 3.
I have Dell 1537 laptop having Intel 5100 wireless card. It is not supported by Fedora 9. I have tried downloading the driver iwlwifi-5000-ucode-126.96.36.199.tgz from URL...Downloads and copied it to folder /lib/firmware and rebooted the machine. But still it is not detected by the system. Is there any solution to this problem .
We have a SuSE/SLES 9 server that boots from a fibre channel card, using volumes from a NetApp filer.
We previously had the server booting from the LUNs on the filer, but after some tinkering around with the fibre channel BIOS, we have the situation where the LUNS seem to be mounted, the OS boots, starts to initialise everything but then stalls, saying:
We have tried loads of combinations of settings in the BIOS and fibre channel BIOS without any success or any idea what may have caused the error.
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?
Wireless card detected but cannot connect to a wireless network
I have install it suse 11, and everything went well until the wireless thing is not working, my card is Broadcom BCM4318, I see my card on the network settings but I cannot configure the card, and also I cannot connect to a wireless network, can someone tell me what to do here, I am loosing my patient....
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.
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.
I just build a couple production SLES 11 machines and I'm using an ssh client to connect. However the ssh client forces me to use keyboard interactive login. How can I turn this off so I can use the normal username / password?
