SUSE :: How To Change Drive From Sdc To Sda

Sep 20, 2010

I cloned a drive image on a computer using clonezilla. I want to clone the hard drive to another computer with same CPU/Motherboard/graphics card.

On the first computer, OpenSUSE is on sda. However, I found that the hard drive I want to clone to on the second computer is sdc. Now, the second computer won't boot because it want to load from sda. How can I change the drive from sdc to sda?

General :: Change Permissions On Mac OSX Hard Drive From SUSE KDE Live Cd?

Jul 9, 2010

My mac osx hard drive does not boot anymore and I would like to get my important files off before I reformat the hard drive. I have run into a bit of an obstacle -- there seems to be some permissions setting that are barring me from accessing the files I need to. I can see the Machintosh HD and can access some files. How do I change permissions for the entire drive and all it's directories?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Change CDROM Drive To DVD Drive?

Mar 31, 2009

I exchanged my CDROM drive for DVD drive. The DVD is recognized in the BIOS (will boot to DVD install disc) and in CentOS 5.2 (when I list the hardware), but CentOS must still think it's a CDROM drive. When I run VLC in a terminal it kicks back these errors code...

I think this means that "hdc" is linked to a CDROM configuration somewhere, but I don't know where to find it to change it (or out it). It also appears thee is no DVD module loading. (Of course, I could be making poor guesses.)

I thought there might be something in the fstab, but it doesn't appear there is anything there (for the CDROM or DVD drive)?

Is there somewhere else I should be looking? /dev/*** ?

SUSE :: Target Change And Re-compilation??

Jan 27, 2010

We have a 32-bit SLES build server and we compile our 32-bit application on top of it. Our target is 32-bit SLES.Now want to change our target to 64-bit SLSE and keep the application 32-bit, do we need change the build server to 64-bit and recompile the application with some flags? OR can we use the 32-bit binaries compiled on 32-bit SLES build server?We use g++ compiler. It would be great if any Linux Guru can give me the steps to be followed.

SUSE :: Can't Change Font Size

Aug 1, 2010

No matter what I do with system settings I cannot change the font size or type of font in Firefox and Thunderbird - other programs as well. Is there somewhat to change this? The fonts are too small and I have vision problems. I know I can hit ctrol ++ but with other distros I can change the deflt font size for the system. I am using openSUSE 11.3 and like it very much except for this lack of a feature.

SUSE :: Need To Change IP Address - Where It Is Configured

SUSE :: Weird Permission Change - Impossible?

Mar 6, 2010

I have openSuSE 11.2, and just recently I've installed Apache 2.2 on it. I installed php, rewrite and ftp modules - all was OK. I made two accounts which are able to login on the FTP, and should have full access - I made the htdocs (the folder accessible from FTP) have permissions - root and root group should have both read, write and delete permissions. However, when I right clicked the folder >properties > permissions - it said "Folders: Read and write" (or something like that), but "Files: ---"... Always when I wanted to change that, in GUI or terminal - it did the same, it either changed back to --- immediately, or it stayed like that... until I closed the window. When I reopened it, it was the SAME...

I double-checked - Apache was stopped at the moment. I tried to change the permissions of the enclosing folder - still did the same. I do not really understand the Linux filesystem structure yet, but from what I read on internet, I saw that most used install prefix is /usr/local/apache - I installed it there as well. So, I though I shall put the htdocs folder somewhere else - I made a new folder in /var/ called server. But the properties of that folder did the same thing! I.e. it changed back just when I changed it to something else. How can I REALLY change these permissions so they won't change back in a second?

SUSE / Novell :: Not Allowed To Change Image

Feb 21, 2010

I installed OpenSUSE 11.2-KDE about 2 weeks ago, and have been pretty satisfied with it so far.Apart from one niggling little problem.When I went to the 'Password and User Account' page (Configure Desktop>About Me) and tried to change from the default image to something more personal, I got a message box saying "Your administrator has disallowed changing your image." However, on the same page I was allowed to enter personal details and could, if I wished, have changed my password.I logged in as root to see if I could change it from there, but I got the same message. As this is a single-user machine, where I am effectively root/administrator, it would appear I am banning myself from changing my image. So far, I've been allowed to change anything else.

General :: Change To KDE - Install SuSE On Second Hd Than After Windows Partition On First Hd?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a computer with 2*Quad cores, 48GB RAM and 2* 1TB harddisks. There is a 100 GB partition for Windows 7 on one of the harddisks (sda). We want to use the computer for chemical computations, by running the chemical software on SuSE (SLES 10). I used GParted to shrink the Windows partition. I tried to install SuSE, but just before it asks for the root password, it restarts the computer, and after the restart the keyboard and mouse didn't work. (I had the keyboard, mouse and screen connected to a KVM switch, because I have more than one computer in the office). I tried to plug the mouse & keyboard directly into the computer, but nothing worked.

I was afraid of restarting the computer (since the installation wasn't completed) but I reasoned that perhaps then the computer would automatically pick up the mouse and keyboard. It did. However, earlier in the installation I chose to install KDE and not Gnome, but when everything was finished I found that I had Gnome, and not KDE. How do I change to KDE? I guess there should be a way using YAST or something, but I'm not sure. At present, one of the harddisks has the Windows partition, and then the SWAP (primary), and then the rest of the Linux part (primary). I would like to partition the Linux part like this......

SUSE :: Cant Access Drive After Update

Aug 5, 2009

I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 and it runs great. However, I cannot access my 2nd hard drive. I usually have two 160gb drives in my system. one for OS and programs the other for data. I wiped the OS drive before the install and detached the data drive until after the install. Suse can see the drive but wont allow me access to it. i suspect its because i have used a new user name and password.

SUSE :: How To Format And Mount A 2nd Drive

Jul 28, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 installed on my PC, the install went well and was quite pleased with the OS. Howeve, because I only had a small 40Gb hard-drive I decided to buy a new Western Digital Green 1Tb SATA drive for storing my music etc.Now this is where I have run into difficulty. I can't get the OS to see the new drive, I did a search and found some instructions on how to format, mount, setup the 2nd drive but I either missed something or I just didn't do it correctly.In the end I could see the drive under Nautilus and that was it.

I can't write to it because it says I don't have permission? I can't seem to make new directories, most likely because I don't have permission. If needs be I will be willing to go back to the beginning and start installing the drive again. I don't mean to beliitle the Linux OS and users but using Windows$ all my life (I'm 49) I find it a lot easier, but I am willing to learn this new OS (for me that is).

SUSE :: Drive Access At 100% Utilization?

Nov 9, 2010

I have a storage array and one of the logical volumes stays at 100% utilization whenever any process accesses the volume. It is a 9TB RAID 5 array on it's own SCSI interface card. I have another 9TB logical volume in the same chassis, on it's own card that does NOT exhibit the same behavior.

I'm measuring the utilization using atop. The strange thing is it pegs out at 100% utilization for the entire time a process accesses the volume, even when the data being accessed is just a few kb. My users home directories reside on this volume so as you can imagine every user is impacted whenever someone accesses any file from this volume.

The only processes being shown in atop are nfsd processes and xfslogd process. Nothing has been deliberately changed on this system. The only thing out of the ordinary that changed is a user deleted several TB from his home directory a week or so ago, just about the same time this problem came up. During the troubleshooting process, tis system has been rebooted several times.

Hardware :: Change Display Resolution So It Stays Changed In Suse 11.3?

Nov 2, 2010

(Video card is a nothing special Nvidia)

I want to change the default resolution of 1280x1024 to 1024x768. Setting at boot using the space bar or the KDE display (personal settings) does not survive the next boot. In yast or yast2, hardware, there is no monitor selection (something wrong here?).

Using root, run level 3, the command sax2 --vesa 1024x768 does nothing.
or sax2 -m 0=fbdev does nothing.

I had no problem with previous suse releases. What am I missing?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing SUSE On Old Box Without DVD Drive?

I've ordered and received the beautiful 4 disk set for release 11.2 that came on DVD. Like so many Linux users I would like to load it on an older Windows XP box without DVD drive. Haven't seen this release offered on CD's. I've been able to copy it via network to a file on the box, but have no idea which files belong on which CD - I assume it will take 7 or 8 disks like many of the older releases. Don't want to buy a DVD drive for the old box .

SUSE :: Possible To Install OpenSUSE On A USB Flash Drive?

May 12, 2009

I want to install OpenSUSE on a netbook I have that's currently running Mandriva.
I know often with a distro you can run the LiveCD/Live USB version from a USB Flash Drive. I understand maybe I can do that but want I want to do is do an actual install. Is this possible?
I assume I'd need to download the distro to my netbook under Mandriva and then after do an install and choose the USB Flash Drive after inserted as the hard drive to install to. Then when I boot up the computer I'd just choose the USB Drive as the bootup drive.
Is this possible though? Would it damage my Mandriva install? Like I said I know I can use the USB Flash Drive likely as a bootup/Live CD type of solution but since I will be using it semi-regularly and saving data at times I'd like to use it simply like another hard drive. Is this possible?

SUSE :: On Restart The Computer Does Not Recognize The CD In Rom Drive?

Feb 1, 2010

Is it possible to have a tri-boot system ? I currently have a dual bootsystem on mydesktop. Win XP & Ubuntu. I want to add SUSE 11.2 but don't know how to go about loading it onto my machine. On restart the computer does not recognize the CD in my rom drive and only asks if I won't to load Windows or Ubuntu. How do I go about adding another OS to my hard drive ? I have an old Gateway with 130Gb hard drive and plenty of unallocated drive space and 512Mb of Ram. I use Windows rarely (almost never but do need it for some applications) and mostly rely on Ubuntu which my wife and I both like and use daily but I want to look at and experience other Linux installations as well

SUSE :: Drive Mounting, 'Computer' Page?

Apr 1, 2010

I added a second internal hard drive (/dev/sdb1) to a SuSE Linux system. I chose /home/users/STORAGE as a mount point. If I navigate to /home/users/ and right-click on the STORAGE directory and choose properties, I can see the amount of free space in the sdb1 partition of the second hard drive. Everything looks as I expected it to.However, if I choose the 'My Computer' option, click on home from there, which is where /dev/sda1 is mounted) and then navigate to STORAGE, the address bar in Konquerer looks something like this: da1:/users/STORAGEI might not have the format completely right but I do know that sda1 is listed at the beginning of the address. Yet if I copy files into this directory they end up in sdb1. Are there any issues with accessing the directory this way? When I right-click on STORAGE after navigating to /users/ through the My Computer page, the space used/available does not reflect the sdb1 partition.

A second question I have: On the My Computer page each mount location is shown in the top-right corner. The name of the new internal hard drive I added is displayed as "1TB media." That name is also a link to the mount point. How can I change this to something else? I would avoid using the My Computer page all together but there are many other people using this system and most of them know no other way to access thedirectorie

SUSE :: Plug In Flash Drive Or Sd Card Nothing Happens

I recently updated to OpenSUSE 11.3 and now when i plug in my flash drive or my sd card nothing happens. When I was on 11.0 I just plugged in my flash drive and it would show up on my desktop, now I got nothin'. The sd would open up in f-spot but not anymore. I'm not too smart so I'm pretty sure it's something simple that the all powerful geniuses in the linux community can fix. I am running in gnome on an emachines w3609 with intel devices.
