Thread: Facebook Not Working In Opensuse

    Default Facebook Not Working In Opensuse

    We use a 32-bit OpenSUSE 12.1 in a virtual machine in our office and also at customers that are virus magnets. The host hypervisor is the same everywhere: Virtualbox running on 64-bit Windows 7.

    Very recently (within the past two weeks), on Firefox 15.1, Facebook loads the top strip but none of the content below it. The top strip is the menu that has the logout button, notifications, search, etc....

    It loads in Chromium works ok.

    Any thoughts? Should I upgrade using a different repository? We'd prefer not to upgrade the kernel and OS, if at all possible, since it's taken some effort into getting it working right with virtualbox'es seamless Windows integration, etc....

    Here's my uname -a output:
    Code:
    Linux OpenSUSE121ShopPC 3.1.10-1.16-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 27 05:21:40 UTC 2012 (d016078) i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Update: I ran this one click installer, but it downgraded firefox to 7.0.

    Also the online package installer now shows that 20.0 is available (whereas before this upgrade it stated that 15.0 was the latest available) but it crashes as soon as I click on Next when I attempt an upgrade.

    openSUSE 12.1 is way past it's end of life. My 2 cents: make a move now, to 13.1 which is the Evergreen version of openSUSE now. I've learned my lessons in this area. Think about building and testing images in SUSE Studio.

    EDIT: remove "upgrade".

    Thanks for the answer. There's no way to upgrade from 12.1 to 13? Or is it better in the long run to start fresh?

    You can try, but...

    First backup everything important to you. I HIGHLY suggest using the DVD
    to do the upgrade.

    Worst case, the upgrade doesn't work and you will need to install fresh.
    But, if the upgrade does work you will have saved a very small amount of
    time considering post upgrade trouble shooting. Yes, in the end you will
    be better off installing fresh but look at all of the "experience" you
    will lose. :-)

    Ok, thanks. The good thing about it is that it's a virtual machine, so I can snapshot it
