I have installed Leap 42.2 on my HP EliteBook 8440p (clean install from 13.2, just took over /home/<user>). Installation went through without any issues, I have installed the nvidia driver from NVidia.
Under KDE I have set up WLAN; I am normally using LAN, and from time to time WLAN. Both works.
However, I have two issues:
When I boot the Notebook without a LAN cable attached, the boot procedure takes 5 minutes … (!!!)
Looking at boot.log it seems that WLAN is coming up but cannot connect (?) to NFS server and/or my external NAS:
I figured out that boot time under Leap 42.2 is longer than in my previous installation, but with LAN attached it takes only approx. 30 seconds (I have a SSD of course).
I would like to set up the notebook so that I can boot even when I have no LAN or WLAN available. Furthermore, sometimes my NAS is not active and I would like to be able to boot the notebook in a reasonable time even if the NAS is not reachable.
Second issue is obviously the way I set up my network:
I used Yast to connect my NAS as NFS client:
I entered the IP, did not check anything else and entered the mount options defaults,rw,user. This is because I would like to have a rw access as normal user. This, however, does not work. I have only read access.
Suse Firewall is running, the firewall port is open (eth0). NFSv4 is activated (don’t know what that is, though).
So, as I failed to use NFS with write access for my user, I use SMB4k as well:
However, SMB4k works only with LAN connection, not when I boot up with only WLAN …
I would really appreciate any help. I understand that this is confusing and that I am mixing different things here. I am using SuSE linux since SuSE 6.0 but I am not a Linux hacker, just a “user”. I always had issues with the SuSE firewall, permission sets, etc. Probably I would need to take a seminar in order to get it …
Thanks again for the support in this great community.
