    Default A host of problems


    Hi folks,
    I've started having few problems with my openSUSE 11.1 install, most
    notable after installing the Online automatic updates. Some of these
    include

    1. At rare occasions, bootup process getting hanged up at "starting
    jexec service"
    2. Network doesn't startup, KNetworkManager icon is there in the tray,
    but it mentions "Network Manager not running". I have to goto YaST ->
    Network Services -> Network settings, click on all tabs and hit OK, that
    triggers openSUSE to start the network services and WiFi connection
    happens

    And the most serious problem, fuse seems to have totally conked off,
    having a mind of its own. It refuses to unmount while shutting down, at
    times refuses to mount my /home directory (its on a separate
    partition).
    Sometimes, it mounts, and then remounts on read-only mode. At times, I
    can't even traverse through my /home directory, both at console and via
    dolphin, both hang up, though I can traverse through other directories
    with no problems

    Would appreciate help and replies. I'm using KDE 4.1, that comes
    installed with OS 11.1
    Thanks

    establish the netconnection and run zypper update
    see if this helps the missed out files get in
    also see if the network starts at boot box ticked

    Nothing on fuse here. Also found something weird:


    Code:

    --------------------


    What's up with .gvfs? tried a rm -f after su'ing to root, still can't
    remove it, says
    > rm: cannot remove `.gvfs': Permission denied

    i found a .gvfs only in my /root folder.
    not in my /home/ramaswamy
    it may be root only can delete it.
    why do you want to delete it?
    it may be connected with some codecs you installed or gedit if you
    installed.
    what problem you have with .gvfs?
    you can try move it to /mnt as root.
    your problems dont look like related to gnome files.
    do the update even if it does not reffer to gnome any way.

    I don't want to delete. I said > what's up with .gvfs

    because I wanted to draw your attention towards the permissions it has
    & users and groups it is associated with.
    I have run the update, with no effect.
    And yes before I forget, network starts at boot checkbox ticked and I'm
    yet to figure out why network doesn't start.

    coolpcguy, I had the same three problems you describe, starting about a
    week after a fresh install of 11.1 on a ThinkPad T23, using KDE 4.1.3. I
    found other users mentioning these problems in some other forum
    threads.

    For the jexec and fuse problem, the fix seems to be
    Yast->System->System Services (Runlevel), scroll to "jexec" in the list,
    select it, and click Disable.

    For the Network Manager problem the fix seems to be Yast->Network
    Devices->Network Settings, say OK to the warning, on the Global Options
    tab, uncheck the Enable IPv6 box.

    I have been running smoothly for several days after making these fixes,
    and have noticed no bad side effects. I am puzzled why 11.1 ran well for
    me for about a week, then started these problems.
    Regards,
    Howard

    My problem with openSUSE 11.1 is a strange "freeze" issue. Both the
    keyboard and the mouse are frozen.

    My hardware details could be found at: 'Show Box'
    (http://tinyurl.com/9fpg6y)

    Please, I need your help. Thanks.

    I installed kernel 2.6.28, and till now, there is no freeze at all

    I hope that fixed the problem.

    If you want to install such kernel, you could follow the steps provided
    at 'Complete Dose of Linux Poison: Ext4 support on OpenSuse 11.1'

    Hi ogharib & thanks for your feedback.

    I had strange freezes to where my keyboard and mouse would no longer
    accept input... could move the mouse pointer around though.

    Removing the java 1_6_0 version (zypper remove java-1_6_0*) and only
    keeping the java 1_5_0 version solved the freezes for me.

    Now wonder if the 2.6.26 kernel will allow me to use java 1_6_0 again
    without glitches?

    Cheers,
    Wj
