Current usage

Hi again,

its just the week between christmas and the new year. Time to do some clean up on every system and to reinstall my desktop at work, so lets talk about my usage of openSUSE

  1. Home Desktop PC
    Running openSUSE 12.1 and Windows 7, each on an own harddisk

  2. Work Notebook
    Running openSUSE 11.4 and Windows 7 both on the same disk. I reinstalled 11.3 caused by sveral problems I had and talked about in some other posts, they where still not fixed and because its my work notebook and i had some afterwork attendance to do is just reinstalled 11.3

  3. Work Desktop PC
    On tuesday i installed 12.1 on them, the old Kubuntu is gone, i'am really happy with it but nepomuk did really s*** so i disabled it, it was eating 1.1g of my ram

  4. Private virtual server 1
    it is running openSUSE 11.3 in addition to Apache, MariaDB, Wordpress, Mediawiki and it is the host :-)

  5. Private virtual server 2
    its running openSUSE 12.1 and was the testserver for the openSUSE 12.1 posts

Mein Lenovo Versuch #1

Nachdem openSUSE auf meinem Lenovo Thinkpad T410i nicht mehr läuft habe ich es mal mit OpenIndiana versucht.

Release Version war development 151a, das booten ging soweit ganz gut, ich musste einmal rebooten da sich die Grafik wohl etwas zerlegt hatte. Beim zweiten Versuch (bei dem ich dann auch anwesend war :-) sah es ganz gut aus, die Treiperunterstützung ging soweit.

Einziges Problem, der WiFi 1000 Intel Chipsatz wird nicht unterstützt. Dies war auch leider der O-Ton des OpenIndiana Wikis.

Schade, der Versuch stoppt an dieser Stelle, da es für ein Notebook schon schön wäre WiFi zu haben.

[UPDATE] Strange, someone has an idea?

Thanks a lot to

As we now found out the boot/shutdown problems where just caused by systemd so, while booting (on the grub menu) you can switch to systemV via F5 and that just worked.

So now we must talk about making systemV  default again, so just look what SUSEhelp post us via IRC

<SUSEhelp> By default, openSUSE now boots using systemd. In case of trouble, you can switch back to the old way using sysvinit by pressing the F5 key on the boot. If you want to switch to sysvinit permanently, install the sysvinit-init package. To switch back to systemd, reinstall the systemd-sysvinit package.

So as easy as it is told:
zypper in sysvinit-init

Problem: sysvinit-init-2.88+-66.58.2.x86_64 conflicts with namespace:otherproviders(sbin_init) provided by systemd-sysvinit-37-3.4.1.x86_64
Solution 1: deinstallation of systemd-sysvinit-37-3.4.1.x86_64
Solution 2: do not install sysvinit-init-2.88+-66.58.2.x86_64

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c):

Now take solution 1, it will replace systemd

Strange, someone has an idea?

So, i told you about the minor Problems. The behaviour of my Thinkpad is still strange.

  1. Boot takes about a minuite

  2. Shutdown leads to kernel panic

  3. Parts of the system just freeze

A bit more details

  1. When booting it comes to an harddisk related issues. Directly after mounting the / partition i hangs for about 40sec before it really starts up.

  2. It was strange, the green screen of openSUSE just stood there and after some minuits i just switched them off. Yesterday i pressed the ESC button early enough to see it is running to an kernel panic. But, it is not written to disc and i only could see some last lines of the stack output

  3. When i open some software windows, for example Firefox , Kate and an java app. Sometimes i can browse the web but i cant switch to any other running app. Even the KDE Menue button does not work.
    Dmesg or syslog does not show anything.

So, maybe someone has an idea or an hint on this points?!?
