Thread: More problems following 13.1 update

  1. #1

    Cool More problems following 13.1 update

    Hi all.
    Running previously on 12.2 and up to date.
    previous version linux 3.4.6.3 KDE 4.8.5 and nvidea graphics drivers.
    2 disk system multiboot to win 7 or linux 50G / dir and 400G /home dir.
    2 displays screen 11680 x 1050 screen 2 1920 x 1080.
    The update was easy and slick and complained of packages error ibus v libreoffice and took option to deinstall libreoffice package.
    removed existing repositories, no probs.
    update continued and no problems.

    After reboot gives a better grub screen and retained my multiboot functions.
    Default linux begins, displays flash screen then stops and no login boxes, before halt can toggle escape and view progress all looks ok then stops and other keys eg f2 do nothing.
    advanced boot options allow load of recovery system and old kernel, these allow login options to display.

    Second problem is no networking, tried reconfiguring and playing under recovery system. but no network.still working on win 7 and was working before upgrade.
    lots of info within logs shows
    rt61 pci de authenticating from addr by local choice (reason = 3)
    disabling HT/VHT due to WEP/TKIP use
    lots of lines in log but dificult to post as I have to change to win to connect to network.
    There appear to be more errors on sound and stuff.

    So 2 real probs
    1 no login and halt on updated kernel
    2 no networking

    With networking enabled I will at least be able to get nvidea drivers which will help a lot.
    All help appreciated thanks

    See release notes.

    You probably have two network interfaces, one with old name, not
    working, one with new name, not configured. You have to remove old and
    configure new.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply.
    release notes do not mention two interface prob.
    release notes say if no network after install to reboot, old ones are the best eh?, many reboots later still same.
    other point in release notes is to do with network manager, minne was done with ifup and tried reconfiguring with known working settings and still same
    checking message log shows lots ofattempts to run network which appear to then shut it down, sorry it is difficult to display messages as I have to reboot to other system.
    cheers

    Thee has been a change in the naming convention for network things I guess it is possible that your old cofigs may be still in effect. The change is in the notes.

    Hi
    No Further.
    looking at another thread I can see the problem being talked of re different I/F's
    this is not within my release notes but no matter.
    the fix for it is still not clear,
    from ifconfig I could see Lo and wlan0 as they were this AM
    from hardware devices I could see a network interfaces section with my card and refs to wlan0, also further down was a wireless interfaces section with a different name.
    How do I resolve this?
    so far have deleted existing yast network wlan0 config, how do I find and configure the newly named device?
    all help appreciated and will continue AM tomorrow.
    Thanks

    Unfortunately, you can only read the release notes _after_ you install
    and update the system, due to Bug 851864 and Bug 852174 (a shame).

    I'll copy that paragraph for you here, if you don't have a 13.1 install
    to read them:



    openSUSE 13.1 Release Notes (p8 of 11)

    4.3. Duplicated Network Interfaces

    The current version of systemd uses a new convention for assigning
    predictable names to network interfaces. YaST is changed accordingly.



    Some reports indicate a bug in YaST when conversion from one naming
    scheme to another takes place. If the same network interface has two
    different names, you have been hit by this bug. In this case remove the
    different network interfaces in /etc/sysconfig/network and use YaST to
    configure the network anew.

    For more information about predictable network interface names, see
    http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Soft...nterfaceNames/.

    Please post the output of ifconfig, inside a code tags block (the '#'
    button).

    I did see two network cards(in yast ==> nw settings) assigned to enp2s0
    and eth0when i booted into 13.1 for first time
    I deleted one of them( eth0),saved and restarted machine and then
    everything was good with ifup(legacy) as indicated by YaST
