sorry to say but i think you need to:
not mix two problems in the same post
post those two different problems in the correct forum (that will
place them where the guru who might help looks)
give each a subject relative to the problem
HOWEVER: as far as i know there is no connection whatsoever between
DNS or networking settings and monitor dimming, so it has nothing to do
with networking AND it is easy to fix…so i will answer that here (so
you don’t have to repost in the correct forum):
in the menu go Configure Desktop (or Personal Settings) > Hardware >
Power Management and with “Global settings” selected on the left look to
see which profile you have set for your current power condition…for
example, i GUESS you have a machine which is plugged into a power
source, and you are therefore using the “Performance” profile…if so,
then on the left select “Power Profiles”, and when the window changed to
a new view, click to highlight “Performance” (when that window opens it
might be focused on any of “Agressive powersave”, “Powersave” or
then, with Performance selected (IF that is the profile you are using
and plugged in) change the “Dim Display” setting from its current “After
5 min” to something higher, like “90 min”…
you said you had set the “power hardware to time of 90minutes” which i
must assume means you set that in the BIOS or you set that time length
for a profile not actually in use…
new (other) problem:
now, to the DNS question: if you are not a native English user maybe
there is a different language listed on the forums opening page
http://forums.opensuse.org/forum.php, maybe you will get better service
in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese,
Portuguese or Russian ?? i say because sorry but i can’t figure out what
your problem is, like:
you say you put the “put in the wrong thing that seems to disagree with
YAST” and i wonder in which part of YaST (i could GUESS in the “DNS
Server” module, or the “Network Settings” module, or the “DSL” module,
or Modem or ISDN or or or…
and WHAT did you put into where?
and, you wrote “I make no changes and the start server gets disabled and
I can’t re-enabled.” again, sorry but that makes no sense to me: there
is no “start server” i am aware of…are you trying to administer a
“server” or an individual’s “desktop”…or are you speaking of the X-server
when you write “configure hundreds of zones” what are telling us, are
you the administrator of a large private network with hundreds of
so, please describe the machine you are reinstalling on often.
and, describe the network with so many zones.
and, these zones you have to reconfigure, is that in the firewall module
of YaST you are working?
finally, please give an insight to your experience with managing large
networks and Linux…and answer these questions:
what is your operating system and version?
if a desktop environment is being use, please tell us what it is, and
what version." have a conflict "
you write about “have a conflict” and i wonder if you are seeing an
error message, and where you see it, and exactly what it says, and
what was going on when the error message came to you.
again, thanks for posting and we hope to get you going!!
