  1. #1

    Default 12.3 cannot stop firewall to start at boot

    suse 12.3 kde fresh install with separated /home, if I go to >yast2>firewall and I check the button to disable firewall automatic starting it seams to work, but when I reboot the firewall is still there and if I go to >yast2>firewall the check is on the enable firewall automatic starting.

    Try these in a terminal
    Code:
    systemctl status SuSEfirewall2.service
    systemctl enable SuSEfirewall2.service
    systemctl start SuSEfirewall2.service
    systemctl stop SuSEfirewall2.service
    systemctl disable SuSEfirewall2.service

    Nope, this is because we're used to the old runlevels, while systemd is taking over. You may be interested in systemd-ui, which you can start with
    Code:
    kdesu systemadm
    Try enabling, starting, stopping from there. It also gives a nice overview on what services rely on.

    This is interesting, I can not get my firewall to start either.
    I follower the instructions above and got no error messages so I assumed the firewall was started. I now check yast and it says the firewall is running but then I check systemd-ui and get this.


    It looks like the firewall is not running. I wonder what it is really doing? Which one of these service managers should I trust?

    Well, THAT is a bug in YaST, which is not able to handle start/stop of
    services any longer, because of the systemd migration.

    Yes, I'm surprised that YaST wasn't updated to handle this for openSUSE 12.3, although I guess it's still trying to provide compatibility with sysvinit while it is still supported.

    YaST doesn't seem to be a priority anymore. Perhaps when the new SLES
    get released. :-}

    Is there a bug filed for this?

    That YaST lacks maintenance and is bitrotting? That's a known issue. I
    read a developer complaining of this recently...

    This particular issue of stopping the firewall? Dunno, I haven't looked,
    but it is not the first time that I see posts on this.

    It would certainly be a good idea to report it again, let them close it
    as duplicated if they like.
