    Default Problem with opneSUSE and HP mini 5103

    Hello, I m new here and exactly i am beginner with openSUSE. I had installed new openSUSE two months ago and it is working properly. But suddenly when a i want save my libre office document it freezed. Than i restart my laptop but it did not login. I think I have a serious problem. I am in the middle of examination at university and I need my laptop. I can choose recovery mode on startup, RAM looks fine and I can see green screen with a gecon but than there is a black screen with some white text which says ...started somethingsomething... and the last one is some information about opensuse firewall phase 2 but nothings gonna happend.

    I think it might be crash hard disk but I am desperated.

    Thank you for your help

    You have to run the smartctl long test to verify. 2 hours at least.

    Code:
    smartctl --test=long /dev/sda
    wait (offline, background test runs for long time)
    smartctl --all
    If no errors detected, then run filesystem check from a live cd.

    And always tell which version of openSUSE you use and which desktop.

    Does the exam include a thesis or anything like it?
    Have you forgotten to make an external copy of your current work?
    If so I would start a live system (from CD or USB-stick) an make a copy of the important files on an external drive or usb stick (before trying something else).

    Regards

    Yes, that's urgent !

    And as Martin wrote do nothing else before that, to not risk loosing the work you've done.

    Just download an openSUSE Live CD through www.opensuse.org, burn it, boot from it, and get your documents saved from your hard disk to e.g. 2 USB sticks !

    If you don't have the time to repair your openSUSE immediately,
    LibreOffice will probably even run under Windows, or take OpenOffice under Windows.

    Good luck!
    Mike

    (edit: openSUSE Live CD through www.opensuse.org, burn it)

    Yes, I concur. I should have said it earlier.

    Forgot to say: any other Live Linux CD like GParted will do just as well,
    if it isn't too old and if you used a standard Linux file system like ext3 or ext4
    for your Linux partitions on the hard disk.

    In case you should have used BTRFS as your file system, it may indeed be better
    to use a Live CD of the same version of openSUSE or of a higher version of openSUSE.

    Good luck
