I am trying to connect on a cable DSL connection and I can`t make it work.

I tried using both Network Manager and wicked in Yast and it doesn’t work.
Network card is working fine on other boot so is not a hardware issue.

When I use Network manager I can add a DSL connection with user and password but when I try to connect it creates another Wired Connection and it tries to connect with that. It hangs for a minute and then fails.

In Yast -> Network settings I checked the DHCP option. I did everything as in documentation.

What should I do ? I`m a bit noob but I really want to make this work. So a little help would be appreciated.

In "System Settings" ("Configure Desktop) applet In "Personalization" block – "Account details" one can add some personal information to it’s own account – email, profile picture and (i assume) change a password, although once in password field i’m getting pop up window to enter and re-enter new password without "enter old password first" field.
But anyway, when i try to add profile picture i am being asked for root password. Although when i click on "cancel" my picture still being assigned.
I do understand root (admin) password request if i would try to change anything for another user, but it seems to me excessive to be asking root password for anything concerning my own account.
Could you please check if you experience same behavior, and if yes i would like to submit a bug request.

So leap is coming soon, and it will suck for one big reason.
No not plasma 5 as even though I think Plasma 5 still has room to improve it is getting better.
No its the loss of a 32bit edition for older computers, this seems to be a HUGE mistake and I think openSUSE needs to reconsider.
First of all what does this mean for apps that run in 32bit only? I use a lot of emulators and most of them are 32bit only, so now no more SNES emulation?
What about wine? For things like pipelight a lot of it is still 32bit only.
Then there are users of older computers, look i know that 32bit is loosing out but people still rely on old computers these days, if it aint broke dont fix or replace it.
This will mean that if you have a old computer you have to use tumbleweed which last time I checked is not really meant for a workstation environment.
Or use another distro like that certain distro that begins with a U.
Big mistake methinks.

I personally will not use openSUSE 42 and keep on with Manjaro my current distro as at least i can say it offers 32bit support and there is no risk of apps not working anymore or older computers being kicked to the curve.
Nice going openSUSE, bravo.

Hey guys,
I’m trying to join my suse server, which is located in a DMZ, to a windows domain.
I configured samba and kerberos. With kinit i get a ticket. The computer object was created on a RWDC, and replicated to the RODC and is in the cachable group. It seems that Samba is trying to set flags while joining the domain, namely: ACB_WSTRUST and ACB_PWNOEXP. These flags cannot be set. That’s how i interpret the output when i use the net join command.

net ads join -S rodcserver -U Administrator -d1

I have 60GB SSD OCZ disk and a 2TB HDD WD disk. I want to install the latest stable release of openSuSE using the SSD as cache of the HDD. From the three different cache solutions (bcache,dm-cache,Flashcache) I think the best option is dm-cache because it is supported from the LVM. As I have seen in order to cache using LVM you have to create a Volume Group which will include the SSD and the HDD and from there using some commands(I don’t care for the commands for now but for the concepts) to create a Logical Volume that will be the main disk that I will use. Not a physical disk of course but a logical one. But here starts my confusion:
1)Can I use fstrim command on the SSD if it is part of a Logical Volume?
2)Can I create a swap partion (or volume I don’t which is the right word ) that will be also cached? I know that the swap partition has a different filesystem from a normal partition.
3)In Intel Smart Response Technology the SSD that will play the cache role has to be without any filesystem. Do I need a filesystem to use SSD as cache?
4) Is it better not use the SSD as cache but just to mount the /usr/lib directory and/or /boot directory?

after Tumbleweed update, openSUSE-release-20150909-1.2.x86_64, all entries in the
-Application Launcher –Applications menu were lost,
the only way found to re-active them was a forced re-install of :-

<> kdelibs4-4.14.10-1.1.x86_64
<> kservice-5.13.0-1.1.x86_64
<> plasma5-pa-5.4.0-1.1.x86_64

The following are the details of the USB through ‘parted’:


# parted /dev/sdb
GNU Parted 2.4
Using /dev/sdb
Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.

(parted) print                                                           
Disk /dev/sdb: 518MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start  End    Size    Type    File system  Flags
 1      32.3kB  411MB  411MB  primary  fat16        type=06
 2      411MB  510MB  98.7MB  primary  fat16        hidden, type=16

I want to remove the hidden flag, remove the two partitions and create a new, single partition. If I try any of these, or attempt to rewrite the partition table, etc, it just gives the error:


Error: Input/output error during write on /dev/sdb

Some history on this device:
The second partition used to be an encrypted partition that I had messed up as a little kid. I do not remember what I did to it though. I am attempting to recover it now.

Can someone help me out?

For a very long time now (years) through several generations of OS, I have noticed a rather irritating behaviour of my USB mouse. Currently I am running OpenSuse 13.2 (64-bit) with Gnome 3.14.2, but the issue is not new to this version.

The behaviour in question is that the mouse begins to double-click spontaneously, at random, after sometimes after weeks of apparently ‘normal’ behaviour. Of course, firstly, I played around with the mouse parameters under the Gnome ‘Mouse and Touchpad’ utility. That provided no evident relief. I thought that before I raise the question in the forum, I had better suspect my mouse hardware. But even when I used another USB mouse, it started to happen after a while. Recently, I became so irritated with this behaviour, I went an bought a brand new one. And it happens with that as well, irrespective of whether the double-click setting is fully fast or fully slow, or anywhere in between.

My conclusion: there is something wrong with the mouse ‘driver’ software! I wonder if anyone else can concur with me on this rather elusive, but exceedingly irritating, point?:

nachdem ich mich nach langer Wartezeit durchgerungen habe, von 13.1 auf 13.2 zu dup’n, hat es mit den üblichen Reiberein mit NVidea und FritzAVM BIS auf mein DSL Dialup auch geklappt.

Ich habe bei der 13.1 nachts, wenn es niemanden störte, einen DSL disconnect mit ifdown dsl0 und anschließendem ifup dsl0 durchgeführt und so die 24-Stunden-Zwangstrennung auf einem mir genehmen Zeitpunkt gelegt.

Ich habe die Linux-Kiste, da hängt an eth0 direkt ein DSL-Model dran, die "Einwahl" erfolgt über die Linux mit den üblichen Prozessen. Das hat auch (seit langer Zeit, schon vor der 13.1) super funktioniert. Nur jetzt nicht mehr (so).

Wenn ich nun z.B. das Interface ppp0 mit wicked


bhaal:/usr/local/sbin # wicked ifdown ppp0
wicked: ifdown: no matching interfaces

zurücksetzen will, geht das nicht.

Führe ich das jedoch mit eth0 durch, geht es, das Interface ist down, jedoch ist die Internet-Verbindung immer noch da. Mit


wicked ifup eth0

bekomme ich das interface dann wieder "hoch", die DSL-Verbindung ist weiterhin vorhanden.

Nun habe ich auch die Herausforderung, nach einem Verbindungsende automatisiert die Verbindung wieder aufzu bauen. Was dann über KDE mit einem Klick beim NetworkManager sofort geht (Klick auf "connect" bei meinem eingestellten DSL Provider), möchte ich auch per Kommandozeile auslösen können.

Ich stelle mir die Frage, wie? Irgendwie scheint mir da momentan der zündende Funke zu fehlen, wie ich das konstruieren kann. Und hier benötige ich Euren Rat/Eure Tipps.

wicked show all bringt


bhaal:/usr/local/sbin # wicked show all
lo              up
      link:    #1, state up
      type:    loopback
      config:  compat:/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-lo
      leases:  ipv4 static granted
      leases:  ipv6 static granted
      addr:    ipv4 [static]
      addr:    ipv6 ::1/128 [static]

eth0            up
      link:    #2, state up, mtu 1500
      type:    ethernet, hwaddr 1c:af:f7:7d:7b:2c
      config:  compat:/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0

eth1            up
      link:    #3, state up, mtu 1500
      type:    ethernet, hwaddr 20:cf:30:75:a3:39
      config:  compat:/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1
      leases:  ipv4 static granted
      addr:    ipv4 [static]

ppp0            device-unconfigured
      link:    #36, state up, mtu 1492
      type:    unknown
      addr:    ipv4

Spannend für mich, type ist unknown, aber das ist vermutlich erstmal nebensächlich weil er das vielleicht gar nicht feststellen kann.

Jedenfalls such ich dringlich eine shell-Kommando-Möglichkeit, um nach einem Verbindungsabbruch (den ich detektiere) automatisiert "den NetworkManager Connect Click" machen kann (aber ohne KDE oder so fernzubedienen, um das klar zu stellen).

Vielen Dank für Eure Hilfe!
