Hi to all,
I think, there are some misunderstandings in my single question. The question was:
What does Debian Linux better than Suse Linux ???
Ok, we agree, we are within an opensuse forum, not talking about SLES.
If I name it SUSE - now since 15 years - within an opensuse forum, this should be ok.
My action was : I did run yast partitioner (from opensuse 12.1.10 - as ist was named within the welcome page at the end of the installation)
and see warnings for almost all of my partitions, showing errors, that the partitons are bad or so.
Taking my old gparted CD from 2006 or 2010 and booting exactly this Proliant hardware, all partitions are ok and
ext4 is detected as well as the right size and cylinders. To confirm that by downloading the very new gparted ISO “gparted-live-0.11.0-10.iso” from today, burning it on CD, it runs the gparted 0.11.0, and all partitions are displayed as ok too.
The author says, it is based on debian.
Booting suse 12.1 as DOM 0, I did install gparted 0.9.1 from suse repository,
it shows a warning on the ext4 partition and the information says:
e2label: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/cciss/c0d0_part2
the hint says : check for e2fsprogs v.1.41+ — and that is installed.
That means : running gparted on debian shows no warnings or errors -
running gparted on suse 12.1 shows warnings.
Because the server is running well, the message is confusing.
I can live with that - my intention was, to help you with qualified error descriptions, not ot talk about SLES or opensuse or HP certifications.
That is not my intention.
My intention is, to give you as much feedback as the time allows, to fix all little weaknesses as soon as possible.
There has been an update within my personal profile. If you like to read more about me, look at This is the international page of RDE Network Systems Germany: International .
If you like to see some of my installation pages, look at Sie befinden sich auf “software.rde.de” im Bereich : i) Suse 12.1/64 XEN (6) Protokoll (fully German)
I do that much work to help others to setup their servers using my experience and learning from each other.
However, thank you for your comments.
It helps me, to rethink the own ideas, seen from another viewpoint / angle.
