    Default openSuSE 11.1 Issues


    I just installed version 11.1 having been a long time user of SuSE. I
    moved from 11.0 on the same box and did a clean from scratch
    installation.

    Issues I am having that concern me most:
    First issue is my Logitech Communicate STX webcam no longer works at
    all. It is identified on boot but is not accessible via kopete, gqcam
    or kcam. It is identified as device 046d:08d7 which is supported by
    gspca zc3xx driver. I understand that gspca is now included as part of
    the kernel, so not sure how to proceed to fix it, or if a new kernel is
    coming that will fix it and just to be patient.

    Second issue is in Yast with the repositories. I setup my usual
    software repositories and now every time I use software management, I
    receive a message box towards the end of the initialization that says
    "There was an error in the repository initialization. Parse error"
    The repositories come up, but am concerned maybe I'm not getting
    everything. I tried removing all repositories, closing Yast, then
    readding everything and get the same result.

    Last big issue is I tried to do a 'make' on a package and received the
    following message "bad interpreter: permission denied". I was 'root' at
    the time.

    Sorry for the long post, just a little frustrated that things that
    always worked now don't in the new version and I'm not sure how to
    correct or proceed.

    Thanks for any and all assistance.

    I ran into a similar problem today on an 11.1 install with KDE 3.5
    instead of 4. My fix was to go into Yast | Software Repositories and
    re-enter them. (The originals looked OK at first glance, with the
    exception that there was a trailing "/" in there.)


    Code:
    --------------------

    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/oss

    http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...1/repo/non-oss

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

    What package? This could be caused by a few different things. For one,
    if the script wants to use an interpreter that's not installed on your
    system, you'll (obviously) get this. For another, you can get it if the
    target directory isn't accessible, or if something like SELinux is
    refusing permission for some actions. Finally, from what I've seen
    online (though I've never seen this myself), some scripts can fail if
    you have DOS line endings. Use the dos2unix utility to convert them.

    Just for the sake of how to make threads.

    You appologize for the long post. That is not a problem as long as you
    describe your problem as thorough as possible.

    But you have three problems here. Now that could be a bit of a problem.
    People are attracted to a thread by having a short, but describing
    title in the first place. Different people are good at different things,
    so they go to problems with different titles and in different
    sub-forums.

    So please take the bit of extra work and make different threads for
    different problem in the right places. In may bring you more solutions
    in a shorter time.

    Thanks for the reply, I will try removing those repositories and
    readding. I am running KDE3.5 for the moment and I didn't remove the
    standard repositories, I'll try that when I get home.

    On the package it was the gspca package from their site. I may be
    missing something in the development packages, didn't think of that,
    thanks for that.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the feedback, first time I've had to ask for support for
    SuSE.
