Thread: Revisiting OpenSuse

    Default Revisiting OpenSuse

    I installed OpenSuse 11.4 Gnome on my Toshiba laptop. A couple of things i noticed while trying the live CD first is that the file manager recognized my NTFS partitions and after I installed I expected it to do the same. Also, while installing I thought I selected a secure logon with username & password. After installation it boots right into the desktop GUI. I haven't had a lot of time playing with OpenSuse yet and I have browsed through some threads and I couldn't find a way to configure a secure logon and do I have to mount the Windows partitions in the Command Line or is there a tool I can use in the control center? Any help would be appreciated.

    Secure logon is set in Yast --> security and users --> user and group management --> highlight yourname --> xspurt options --> login settings

    In Nautilus, click the "Computer" icon and see if the NTFS drive is seen in the panel below. And what happens when you click the icon for the NTFS drive (I'm guessing, only got KDE)?

    That's the default, there is a box you were supposed to click and disable.
    Also the default is same password for you and root.

    Now, disable somewhere in the control panel, if I recall correctly.

    I was able to configure the secure logon, thanks swerdna!

    In Nautilus however, after clicking the "Computer" I get a Hard Disk, CD/DVD, & File System icons. It still does not recognize my Windows partitions. Yes, I can boot into Windows but the File Manager is not recognizing Windows partitions like the Live CD did. Can anyone help me with this. I'm wondering if I have to remount those partitions or edit some file or if I can use Yast or control center? Also, is there something that I missed again when I installed OpenSuse?

    If I can get this going plus get the audio & video going then I'm rocking! I already found how to threads on the audio & video.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi
    You need to edit the /etc/fstab to mount the windows partition at boot.
    Or if you run YaST partitioner, you should be able to select and add,
    ***!!!!MAKE SURE THE RADIO BUTTON TO FORMAT THE DRIVE IS NOT CHECKED!!!!

    Copy here the output of "mount" and the contents of "/etc/fstab", between
    code tags (forum, advanced, '#').

    Thanks for the response. One thing I found that I did not realize is if I click on File System in Nautilus, it gives me a Windows folder. Inside the Windows folder is a C folder and a D folder. From the C folder I'm able to access my files on my Windows partition and copy across what I need. It works for me as long as I can access files. Just not what I expected having used the live CD.

    Also got the audio & video working.

    Thanks!!!
