OpenSUSE Network :: Susie 11.4 Network Manager Doesnt Start At Bootup

May 22, 2011

I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.

Ubuntu :: Choosing To Start X During Bootup?

Jul 13, 2010

In the past (before UpStart was used in Ubuntu) I was able to configure multiple boot items in Grub menu to load the same kernel but into different runlevels. I had configured runlevel 3 (I went into /etc/rc3.d/ and removed the symlink to /etc/init.d/gdm) to be w/o GDM, so that if I had chosen it, my box would not boot into X. How can I achieve the same effect in Lucid?

Fedora Networking :: How To Start Wlan0 On Bootup

Dec 4, 2010

I've been able to get a laptop on Fedora 14 ( working with a Netgear WNA1100 Once up and running, I execute "ifconfig wlan0 up" from root, and everything connects just fine and is stable as long as I stay logged in. But, I haven't found how to do this automatically on boot.

I've tried to use NetworkManager, but I cannot figure out how to get the GUI to show up - it says its running and enabled in the Services gui, but I haven't figured out how to actually use it! I checked to see if the nm-applet is running with ps, and for the user login, I see:

I'm not sure if the "sm-disable" flag is my problem, or how to change it. I'm not even sure if NetworkManager will allow me to set things up for bootup, but that is the path I ran down...

I assume this is a fundamentally easy process to set this up on bootup, but I'm not stumbling across the method. I recall doing this kind of thing years ago when I was an engineer, and before I got my lobotomy to become a manager...

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kmix Doesnt Start Since Upgrade To Kde 4.5

Jan 30, 2011

Running openSUSE 11.3, installed a month ago, and the only change I did from the default install was to update to kde 4.5 (along with usual updates).Since the upgrade, kmix doesn't start. When I click it, I see the bouncy kmix icon, and a new slot is opened on the task bar which reads 'kmix', but it shows nothing, and after a minute or so it disappears, along with the kmix bouncy icon.No error is given, so I tried to run from shell. This time when I try 'kmix' it does nothing at all (doesn't appear in 'jobs').

I've added and to /etc/resolv.conf for good measure FF its configured NOT to use a proxy ( Im fed up looking and checking !) and ive tried the 'detect settings automatically'this is a 'mission critical' step. Going to linux is a big enough change , so getting FF working will be a deal-breaker

Ubuntu :: 10.04 LTS Server Hanging During Bootup?

Sep 14, 2010

I seem to have the following problem with Ubuntu. I have two PATA drives in my server. The OS is loaded on the first drive which is the master and the server functions fine. This is what I want to do is to have two 120 gig drives in the system and mirror them. When I put the second drive in set to be a slave the bios see's both drives. After the bios shows what is in the system it hangs with the cursor in the upper left hand corner and will not boot beyond that point. If I unplug that second drive it will boot up with no issues.

Ubuntu :: Kernels Menu Is Gone At Bootup?

Oct 26, 2010

I am frustrated that I do not see the kernels menu anymore, which had such useful tools like the different kernels, the ram checker or the recovery mode kernel, allowing recovery from a botched update, etc. As of 10.10, I don't even get the kernel messages flashing by, all I get is a dumbed-down black screen a l windows, then it boots ubuntu without offering me any of these options.

How do I get to it, and how do I get it back?

Ubuntu :: Bootup Usually To Frozen Screen

Dec 30, 2010

Have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a couple of Dell Inspiron 2650 laptops (both 512M memory) and when they run, they're great, but they only successfully boot up maybe 10% of the attempts. Most of the time, the touchpad and keyboard are inoperative, but I recall sometimes the enter key gets me past my user Id to input password. Trying to enter recovery mode isn't any better, but once into recovery, I'll boot up in safe graphics, but it is probably only running because it succeeded in entering recovery, anyways. I have elected to to boot up in safe graphics, but they still both freeze. No error messages, just a frozen background/icons screen.

Ubuntu has searched the hardware and reports there's nothing requiring proprietary drivers installed.

After reading all the other problems posted, I figure my laptops are doing pretty darn good, but it sure would be nice not to set around starting up and shutting down, over and over.
