FreeBSD - This is not a Linux distribution, but rather a member of the BSD family which is mainly focused on being a mainstream server platform and supporting as much i386 hardware as possible. It supports the most x86 hardware out of all the BSDs, but likely not what you're after for a development platform unless you're programming server-side software. ...

When you run ssh git@github.com in a normal terminal environment, your SSH client (the ssh process on your local machine) will request a psuedo-terminal (pty) from the server. GitHub has always denied pty allocation. Older versions (prior to 5.6) of OpenSSH’s ssh will “fall back” to no-pty mode if the server rejected its pty allocation request. Newer ...

Filesystem Hierarchy Standard The distro gets /usr, you get /usr/local, ISVs get /opt.

hdparm -i /dev/sdX will let you read the serial number, which you can then compare with the physical label on the drive.

"shows me repair file system in red color" This is the key: the filesystem is corrupted, probably due to an unclean shutdown. It needs to be repaired. Try entering the root password, which should give you a '#' prompt. Type: fsck -A -y That will take a while and print out something about what it's fixing. Once that has completed, type "exit". You may need ...

I was able to make my system boot by doing the following: 1) Take note of the device(s) the system cannot find. 2) Answer "n" to that question. It should take you to a command prompt. 3) Run this command: cd /dev/disk/by-id 4) Run this command: ls 5) Rename all files in this folder replacing there current name with the name of the device you took note ...

You need another similar machine with also OpenSuse (or install a Virtual Machine image). You should be able to do ssh against this image: Put a simple script in this server, like (e.g: call it show_permission and put on the $HOME): #!/bin/bash if [ -e $1 ] then find $1 -printf "%m %p\n" else echo ERROR $1 fi Then, in your ill-server, you can ...

Aside from making sure you have the right IP address, it is also important to make sure a firewall is not interfering. Firewalls may use a 'stealth' mode, where they drop packets instead of replying, which may result in the connection timed out message you mentioned receiving in a comment. Disable all firewalls. Test the connection, do whatever you need to ...

This is all about repositories. When you update using zypper it looks at all your enabled repositories. But some software packages appear in more than one repository. Let's say for example you have both the "Suse update" and the "Packman" repositories active. Then zypper might find an update for say gstreamer in both of them. So what's it to do? Well, ...

I would say there is one thing you missed. boot using a boot CD (let's say it's the OpenSUSE boot CD) 1a. copy all of the files from one drive to the other modify /etc/fstab (change mount points to new partitions) modify /boot/grub/menu.conf (change boot partition) reinstall grub I would say if you set up the partition on the new drive to be compatible ...

Have you tried the codec pack? According to this site it should solve your problem.

since SUSE is an rpm based distro, you should be able get it by: $ rpm -qf `which useradd` which will tell you which package it is in. You can then go get that package source from the repository, which in my case is here: http://download1.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedora/source/SRPMS/shadow-utils-4.1.2-13.fc11.src.rpm (I run fedora; ...

The best places to install packages on your machine are /usr/local if you have admin rights and want everyone to use your program, or $HOME if you want to just make a copy for yourself. Normally you'd set the prefix as --prefix=/usr/local so that the application files are stored in /usr/local/bin settings in /usr/local/etc and so on. The advantage of using ...

Actually, the best approach is probably to create a package that you can install. Many applications come with the necessary files to create RPM or DEB packages. If they don't, there are tools to create packages automatically, for example checkinstall. checkinstall will monitor the operations of make install, and redirect the installed files to create a DEB ...

One way would be to do df -mh. I'm assuming here that, as they have different content, there are a different number of bytes on the drives. You'll see something like this printed: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 272G 195G 64G 76% / none 2.0G 280K 2.0G 1% /dev none 2.0G ...

I don't use openSUSE personally, but I did a little google searching and found this help: This file is in a weird place. It's not under /etc/modules.conf; It's under /etc/sysconfig. cd to /etc/sysconfig open the 'kernel' file in an editor then add the required module to the MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT variable. eg: To start the ...

The short answer to your question is yes, running an old version is a potential security risk. Why? Because many distros tend to end security patches at some point in the lifecycle. Also, even if the old version is supported for critical security patches, you still end up with software packages that are hopelessly out of date. On my Intrepid Ibix Ubuntu ...

Since I figured this out yesterday I may as well point the answer. To go from GRUB2 to another MBR you need to do the following menuentry "Other Disk" { insmod part_msdos set root='(hd1)' drivemap -s hd0 hd1 chainloader (hd1)+1 } That is booting my GRUB2 into GRUB managed by OpenSUSE. hd1 could be swapped for any other drive or ...

Three possibilities: either, make an alias: alias lampp=/opt/lampp/lampp or, add /opt/lampp to your PATH: PATH=$PATH:/opt/lampp or, make a link to your bin (and add this bin to your PATH): ln -s /opt/lampp/lampp $HOME/bin/ PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH

From the Wikipedia entry for Symbolic link: The file system permissions of a symbolic link usually have relevance only to rename or removal operations of the link itself, not to the access modes of the target file which are controlled by the target file's own permissions. Because that symlink is owned by root, only he can change it. E.g. # ln -s ...

From what I can tell that motherboard should just automatically enable AMD-V if your processor supports it (which yours does). Perhaps ensure no other virtualization engines are running at the same time (ie: Parallels), as they may be keeping the (AMD-V) VT sub-system busy, and so VirtualBox can't use it.

Don't know about speeding up the boot, but have a look at GrubChooseDefault if you're lucky enough to have a modern grub version. You still need the partition that holds your grub configuration to be visible from windows (the link above has pointers for that), so it's not ideal. The info below assumes your grub files are in /boot/grub, and that it is ...

Revert /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup back to it's original state (remove your edits). This is not being called during system boot. Add your startup line /usr/bin/x11vnc -rfbauth /usr/bin/vnc/passwd -o /var/log/x11vnc.log -forever -bg to the file /etc/init.d/after.local. Unless you want write a compliant init script that starts/stops/restarts the x11vnc process ...
