Software :: Open Manual Downloaded From OpenSUSE YAST?
Dec 28, 2010
I have downloaded a couple of manual from YAST of openSUSE. Just to name 1 of it:
Well, after the whole YAST process finished, it simply says "Installation successful!", now where can I locate the .pdf file that I just downloaded? Is there a default folder where all the download goes to?
I've just upgraded to 11.3, as a result, the suse-supplied video driver runs very slowly (screen-saver updates about 2 fps, to give you an idea) On 11.2, I had installed nvidia's native driver and things were just fine, so I tried to install the latest nvidia driver again, but I'm getting a hard hang with Yast -- at 99% downloaded, yast stops responding ("abort" doesn't respond, but an external "kill" signal works)
Finally getting the bright idea of checking the y2log file, I see the following code...
these three lines are repeated every second
I'm sure there are some fingers to be pointed [nvidia's ftp server is borked; aria2c is clueless, etc] but that does not help me - what do I need to do to convince this "aria2c" program that the file has, in fact, completely downloaded so that the installation process can continue?
I cannot open YaST nor 'install software' in the GUI. A new window is appears in the panel, but after 10 seconds or so it disappears. When in terminal, i can open YaST.
This happens from time to time and often after a while I can open it again in GUI (also when rebooting). It's very annoying when I want to install something and I cannot open Yast2 (I'm not familiar with terminal, so that's why i want to stay with GUI, which is KDE btw).
how to open firewall ports without using yast. The reason I'm asking is because I'm working on a .sh script for the installation of a couple of programs. Some ports need to be open for the programs to work, I find it really annoying to go to yast and type the ports manually every time. I've looked at /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 but can't seem to find anything, I also know that after the changes I will have to stop start the firewall by running:
when i tried to open my software management(repositories) in YaST i saw a pop up window it says PackageKit is still running(probably busy)Ask PackageKit to quite again.i can't quit that.i tried to quit it via system activity.Because of this i can't open software management(repositories).it is also not working.how to quit PackageKit?
I'd like to be able to change the program that downloaded PDFs open with in Firefox. I'm using Gnome. Currently, when I double click on a PDF in the downloaded file list, it opens up in Adobe Reader, even though evince is currently the default in nautilus. How I can change it so that downloaded files are opened with evince?
Firefox / Web Browser Can't ipen downloaded images.I have been using Firefox 3.0 with good success, and recently switched to Firefox 3.5 (unbranded version,called A Web Browser).I was looking around in Google images and downloading a few images in Web Browser 3.5, when my problems began.Firefox and Web Browser run off the same profile, and neither browser will open image files correctly.I call Web Browser WB for short.All of a sudden I cannot open jpg images.I saved image as and when the download was complete, I tried to open it.WB needed an application to open with, so I selected to open the containing folder instead. WB needed an application to open with again.
Not knowing the name of the Ubuntu image viewer, (which is eog for Eye of Gnome) I went over to /usr/bin and selected the document viewer, evince, to open the jpg image, which didn't work, so I selected nautilus as the application to open the folder with.Now I can open the folder all right, and from there, I can open the jpg picture from within that folder, but I am now told in the WB and Firefox download window that /path/ to/picture.jpg is not a folder in response to my trying to open the downloaded image.I performed some other checks:I can successfully download and open a pdf document;I cannot open a png or gif image, for they are not folders.
A check of Preferences and Applications tab shows no listing for jpg, gif or png or the word image under content type. There is no provision there to create a new entry, either.I checked and compared Firefox Preferences Applications tab with that of Web Browser. They appear to be identical in content.What do I do next? I will log out of 9.04 and back in again, and if that doesn't work, I will restart the computer after I finish my post. Then I will come back with the findings.
The file for their software downloads and then when I try to open it with the Archive Manager, it gives me this error:
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive.zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/jeff/Downloads/RhapsodyReal.EXE or /home/jeff/Downloads/RhapsodyReal.EXE.zip, and cannot find /home/jeff/Downloads RhapsodyReal.EXE.ZIP, period.
In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:
john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00 john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
Installed OpenSUSE 11.4 with XFCE on MSI Wind U90. Unfortunately my RTL8187se buit-in wi-fi doesn't work.Finally found that driver r8180 works. After YAST2 configuration it worked, but after reboot stopped working. I've found that YAST2 forgets my manual configuration of the wifi card (forgets all settings).I've tried to remove card from YAST2 and configure again from scratch, but it forgets all my settings - mainly the module name - r8180, and without this driver network doesn't work!
What does the red text in Yast mean? I installed a printer driver (Gutenprint 5.2.4) from here: software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.2) and when I view the installed packages in Yast, it shows up in red text. Why? (btw, that newer Gutenprint has the driver for my new Epson Artisan printer as well as my Samsung laser printer).
I have been using YaST to install software. It has been working probably. But yesterday when I want to use it again. I can goto that SUI (blue screen) but I just can't go into the software management. and then I try the other options. None of them can't be used.
Using OpenSuse 11.2 RC2. After playing around to install the nvidia driver, Yast lost its beautiful initial colours (light blue, as the rest of the kde desktop) and became a bit uglier (dark blue, more rudimentary, etc; I think the default "unbranded KDE"'s colour).I have the KDE theme set either for the regular user and for root. I have also installed the packages yast2-theme-openSUSE and yast2-theme-openSUSE-Oxygen installed but, how shall I choose one of them?Some webs say that there is an option in Yast under "miscellaneous" to choose Yast's theme, but I do not have it.
I've installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and I'm pretty happy with over all system, the only issue that I had is with Yast, so far. It gives me alert for security patches but no alert for Software update. When I did "zypper up" as superuser I saw that there are updates available for more that 14 applications but yast didn't show me.
if there is any setting for it or should I file it as a bug.
From a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit the default is KDE. But if you want to install both KDE and Gnome on the same machine. I got to Yast --> Patterns --> And tick Gnome Desktop Environment and Gnome Base System.
That inturn pops up with a dependency issue. That states the following: #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2010-02-24 13:18:37 #### pattern:gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64 requires patterns-openSUSE-gnome, but this requirement cannot be provided uninstallable providers: patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.3-1.1.1.i586[http-download.opensuse.org-ae9db630] patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.3-1.1.1.x86_64[http-download.opensuse.org-ae9db630] patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64[openSUSE 11.2-0] patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.i586[repo-oss] patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64[repo-oss] [ ] do not install pattern:gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64 [ ] break gnome by ignoring some of its dependencies [x] deinstallation of patterns-openSUSE-kde4_pure-11.3-1.1.1.x86_64 #### YaST2 conflicts list END ###
So my question is what exactly does removing and applying the Gnome pattern do. Because it seems to change alot more than just branding. It changes the default environment to GTK. How would go about reverting the pattern back to KDE after the install of all the correct Gnome Dependencies.
How do I stop YaST from downloading the repodata every time I open the software manager?Even if I have opened it 5 minutes before, YaST still downloads the repomd.xml again.This is also a real pain if I am offline and trying to install an rpm, because I have to wait for it to realise that it can't access the data before it allows me to skip the auto-refresh.By the time that happens I could have installed the software already if I was using a debian or windows based system.
I can get the installation history via the command line: Code: rpm -qa --last | less
Is it not possible to get it from YaST in the same way as you can in Synaptic? It would not only be nice to see a basic list, but also what has been pulled in as dependencies and have it grouped by 'installation sets'. Too much to ask?
