I downloaded the .iso for OpenSUSE 42.1-0, burned the image to DVD and started the upgrade. During the upgrade from 13.2 to 42.1 it finds and displays the previously used repositories and then notes that to add the upgrade repositories the network needs to be configured and asks if I would like to do so. I click on "yes" and it re-displays the same "configure network?" prompt. Regardless of how many times I choose "Yes" after the prompt re-displays it never brings up any network configuration screens.

I finally gave up and selected "No" for the configure network prompt and install is proceeding, but all of the Slide Show details are showing 13.2 messages even though the Details view shows the media being used is for OpenSUSE-42.1-0.

The machine I am using is connected to the intranet (wired and wireless) and was working correctly with openSUSE 13.2.

I wonder if anybody has any suggestions for me to try with this problem. After I upgraded to 13.2, my external monitor no longer works if I am logged in as a user. If I log in as root, all is fine. As a user, nothing I can do with the external monitor connected lets me see anything but garbage. If I remove the external monitor, <ctrl><alt>F12 and then <alt>F7 I get back to my original screen with nothing lost. I have tried both unified outputs and non-unified outputs in configure desktop/display with the same results.

I suspect that there is a config file screwed up in my user directory, but have no experience with video so don’t know which. (40 years experience with command line 🙂 )If I knew how to do something from a command prompt I am sure I could fix it, but cannot get into any KDE graphics tools with the external monitor connected.

Here is my config:

Tosh Satellite L300D
LG Flatron L1511S monitor

Any help would be appreciated!

I decided to dual boot OpenSUSE and Windows 7.
Instead of installing GRUB2 onto the MBR, I installed it on root and let EasyBCD on Windows handle the MBR.
However, when I try to boot now, I can successfully boot into Windows, but when I decide to boot into OpenSUSE I am stuck on this GRUB4DOS prompt.

How can I fix this?

EDIT: If necessary, I am willing to uninstall EasyBCD and install GRUB2 onto the MBR instead.

Hello altogether,

I installed TW i585 in Virtualbox. Unfortunately the password set in the installation process does not work for the user nor root.
I ran through the installation process a second time but face exactly the same problem :(.

Host System:
Opensuse 13.2, x86_64, KDE 4
AMD A6-6310, Radeon R4, 8GB Ram
Virtual Box 4.3.30 (from standard opensuse repos)

Guest System:
OpenSuse TW, i585, Plasma 5

What can I do?
Thank you!
Simon

Hi Guys,

First time post but looking to design a HDD replication device. Basically what I need it to do is have 6 HDD/SSDs connected to a motherboard. I will likely have openSUSE 13.2 but not definitely that as of yet. The issue I am having is that this needs to be as user friendly as possible. As in the typing needed, what I want to set it up with is having SATA 0 the primary which has 5 different .iso images and the other 5 SATA connections will be connected and have the .iso written to them, i.e. 1 .iso to SATA 1, a different one to SATA 2 etc…

I was thinking of making it so that I can hot swap the HDD out and when you insert a blank one you just have to click one button (likely to be done by a single USB button). The issue I am having in planning is making it so thay SATA 1 will always write the relevant .iso to the HDD/SSD. The disk are likely to never be more than 250GB in size, except the Primary.

Anybody got any advice in how to force a SATA port to always have the same information written to it?

Thanks in advance.
