SUSE :: Improperly Shutdown Suse - Restore Gnome To Automatically Load The Default User On Start Up

Jun 30, 2010

I am new to Linux and wow, it did not take me long to run into a huge snag. I am running Suse Linux Enterprise 10 on a laptop and by some strange reason the computer froze from overheating and I was forced to shutdown improperly. Once I restarted it booted right to the command prompt when it usually instead boots to the default user. I managed to get gnome running using the "startx gnome" command. But when gnome loads, none of my normal extentions load like my wireless driver, the sound driver, etc. how to restore gnome to automatically load the default user on start up or fix any other damage I might have done? lol

SUSE :: How To Restore The Shortcut Panel

Sep 6, 2010

When I installed OpenSUSE 11.3, it had this nice shortcut panel in the left-centre of the screen displaying shortcuts to Firefox,My Computer, OpenOffice & a few others. Somehow I knocked this entire panel off the screen & I don't know what I clicked on in the desktop area but I think it was either the 'Add Widgets' or 'Remove this Panel'. Either way, does anyone know how to restore it as it was really handy and if yes, would you also know how to add more shortcuts onto 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.

SUSE :: USB Installation Recovery - Restore System From Initial Menu

Mar 10, 2010

I have an installation from USB/DVD issue.

1. Desktop running WinXP
2. Lenovo S10e netbook running Win7RC1 (just expired.) no DVD drive.
3. 1 DVD by Novell and Lenovo with "SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (For recovery select Restore System from the initial Menu.) November 2008"
4. 4GB USB drive. Laptop can boot from it.

Need to install the system to the Laptop using the USB drive. Doesn't install.
What I did:
Mostly followed the guide at "Installation without CD - openSUSE.htm" my USB drive is G:

used the HP USB Disk storage format tool to make my USB bootable.
Copied all files from the dvd to the usb drive
Moved G: ooti386loader* to G:
Deleted E: isolinux.bin
Renamed E: isolinux.cfg to E: syslinux.cfg
Downloaded from []
Extract to c: syslinux
CD'ed to c: syslinuxwin32 directory in a cmd prompt
Ran syslinux -ma E: .....

Runs all the way through, gets to a windowed program called ">>> Linuxrc v3.0.20 (Kernel <<<" Code: could not find the openSUSE Repository. Activating manual setup program

Main Menu: Settings, System Information, Kernel Modules (Hardware Drivers), Start installation or System, Verify Installation CD-ROM/DVD, Eject CD, Exit or Reboot, Power off Cant find anything on the usb drive (obviously?) so what do I do now?

This is where I'm at and quite stuck... not sure what other flags there are to use, what I have to move around or rename.

General :: Remove The Plasma Desktop In SuSE 11.1 And Restore The Original Desktop?

Oct 1, 2009

Is there a way in SuSE 11.1 to have the conventional desktop, instead the plasma desktop? I thought that installing KDE 3.5 will fix it, but I was wrong. I really don't want to download back SuSE 11.0, just to have my old desktop layout. SuSE developers should at least leave it as an option than to force people to install it

Networking :: How To Set Up Knoppix As Wireless Bridge

Feb 27, 2010

I have a Windows 7 machine which is having issues with a Linksys Rangeplus wireless card, specifically kernel dumps every couple of hours. I have an old (really old) tower sitting in my room which I would like to turn into a wireless bridge so that I could connect the windows box to the internet without dealing with the blue screens. I plan on using Knoppix as I have it available already, but if it would be easier with another distro I can always download it. If this doesn't work I'm going to have to buy an old WRT54G offline and convert that with DD-WRT...

General :: Knoppix Sees Hda Instead Of Sda- Can't Recover?

May 23, 2011

I thought I knew my way around a little, but apparently mounting is still a complete mystery to me. I'm trying to back up my data with Knoppix since Ubuntu won't start up. something weird is happening with the keyboard and it starts spamming ^[[26~ across the splash screen. When I try to read my hard drive, Knoppix tells me "mount: wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock." It seems like it should be a pretty common error, but I haven't found any anything helpful and understandable that doesn't involve rebooting (won't get me anywhere with Knoppix). I think it has something to do with Knoppix insisting my drive is hda instead of sda, though I have read that Ubuntu likes to tell you hda is sda anyway. Knoppix is the only distro that has worked on a live boot so far.I've thought of trying dd, dd rescue, or just cp onto my external, but I don't know if Knoppix's hda business will make a working backup. The other computers around are all Windows with no extra space, so I don't know what the easiest and safest way is to test wether the back up worked.

General :: Multiple LUN Support In Knoppix 6?

Mar 6, 2010

I was trying to troubleshoot a problematic server. The server, which runs on CentOS 4.x, is attached to Hardware RAID / disk array. Since the OS partition is having issues, I plan to troubleshoot the server by booting up with Knoppix 6 in "knoppix 2" / text mode. Everything went fine except, I'm not able to see all volumes available on the disk array. Only the first volume is presented.

Based on this, I'm suspecting Knoppix 6 kernel is not supporting Multiple LUN by default, based on a few Google search. Tried kernel parameters such as "max_luns=128" and "max_scsi_luns=128" at boot prompt but no luck. how can I enable Multiple LUN support during boot time or right after boot time?

Software :: Installing Hpacucli Rpm On Knoppix 6.0.1?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm trying to install the HP array configuration utility cli rpm in Knoppix v6.0.1, but I'm getting failed dependencies- I'm installing using

rpm -ivh hpacucli-8.50-6.0.noarch.rpm
and these are the failures I'm getting-
Error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by hpacucli-8.50-6.0.i386


I've done lots of googling, and I see a lot of conflicting information about how to solve the problem- I need a real approach from someone who has been through these dependency problems before- whenever I try to solve a dependency problem I usually just make it worse I cannot find a .src.rpm file to rebuild this program from source with. Also, the /bin/sh dependency failure baffles me- can someone explain this to me?

Fedora :: Knoppix Can't Access Main Partition?

Feb 28, 2010

I would like to try to install the nvidia drivers on my F12 box.fter two failed attempts, one of which required me to completely wipe F12 and reinstall (i.e. right royal pain), I would like to be more careful for the next attempt.The problem is that if I try to upgrade to nvidia drivers, and they don't work, I need a way of backing the installation. But, if the driver upgrade fails, then the OS won't boot. I tried going in with a Knoppix live DVD, but it could only access Fedora's /boot partition, not the main OS mounted on /. Therefore, I couldn't change undo the selection of the nvidia driver and back out.The output of mount is:

# mount
/dev/mapper/vg_machine-lv_root on / type ext4 (rw)

General :: Mounting Hard Drive In Knoppix ?

May 29, 2011

I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.

Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.

I have installed Knoppix 6.2/6.4, on the whole hard drive, when I want to change, e.g. my location from America to UK. I am being asked for a user password. On install there were no menus to put these passwords, unlike Ubuntu, which I am using at the moment, in and location etc. Once installed there is the Knoppix menu to add a root password, no problem, but when I put the root password in, on user password ,it wont accept this.

General :: Installing Flash Player On Knoppix 6.0

Aug 14, 2009

i have recently gotten the Knoppix 6.0, and have installed it on my usb flash drive. finally i can browse the internet again on that laptop, but alas, i can't watch any videos because flash player isnt installed yet. i tried to install it by myself and followed adobe's instructions but i just dont get why it won't install. here are my questions:

1. in the adobe instructions, it is said that i need to unpackage the files. and when i unpackage it, a new directory/folder is supposed to appear. but why does it always unpackage on the desktop? no folders are created when i unpackage it.

2. it is said that i need to navigate to the newly created directory and type a command. how am i supposed to navigate to a non-existent directory, huh? and how do you even navigate to certain directory? i typed help in the terminal (i'm using LXTerminal by the way) to look for a hint but i saw nothing there. so, how do you "navigate" using the terminal?

I really need to install the flash player. I've also tried using the Install components in start > system tools > install components and selected the 'flashplugin-nonfree: Flash support for your browser' but when i clicked install, nothing happens.
