I am currently using OpenSuse 11.3.
After creating an image of sda1 to sda2 with clonezilla my system doesnt boot correctly anymore. i suppose I’ve overwritten some data on sda2 or something even though I am pretty sure that this partition didnt contain any system relevant files as the system was installed to sda1.
When I boot Linux the first error message appearing is
“could not update iceauthority file /home/user/.iceauthority” followed by
“There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/GConf/-sanity-check-3 stopped at status 256)” (Probably not the exact message as I translated it from german, original message: "es gibt ein problem mit dem konfigurationsserver. (/usr/lib/GConf/-sanity-check-3 beendet mit status 256
After that I get a third error message, telling me “Nautilus couldnt create the following, needed folder /home/user/Desktop, /home/benutzer/.nautilus” (Nautilus konnte folgende, erforderliche Ordner nicht anleden: /home/benutzer/Desktop, /home/benutzer/.nautilus.)
Before you tell me to google, read on!
I searched for the problem using Google and the board search. Many people had the same error messages, but a completely different source of the problem. Most of them chose to automatically log on whilst having a passworded /home-directory. Also all the people were using Ubuntu. (at least the threads were posted in the Ubuntu forums)
I tried the solutions provided by the guys there, but nothing helped. I tried these solutions
Nach automatischer Anmeldung fehlen Zugriffsrechte - Rechte- und Benutzerverwaltung - Ubuntu-Forum & Kubuntu-Forum | www.Ubuntu-Forum.de
and some others which are alike to these, but most of the syntax didnt even work. I can log in as root, but after that I e.g. type in “nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf” and the computer replies “nano: command not found” which also happens with several other commands.
So is there still someone with an idea? I hope so! Thanks in advance!
Edit: Forgot to mention: I also already tried to to copy the sda2-image over the sda1-partition. It didn’t change a bit.
