ConsoleOne – Unknown meaning for error number 0x6f.

The problem was that the login prompt comes up fine. I enter admin and the password, and then then returns: “Unknown meaning for error number 0x6f; Please call a Novell support provider”

Right now, it works. I have done quite a lot of config work on this box but I think it’s because IPV6 was enabled. Not absolutely sure but 99%. That was the last major change I made – ie disabling it.

SUSE/OES11 by default installs it.
Just simply type:
echo “alias net-pf-10 off” >> /etc/modprobe.conf.local
echo “alias ipv6 off” >> /etc/modprobe.conf.local


Edit /etc/sysctl.conf and add this line:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1


Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst with an editor and add the boot parameter


at the end of the respective line of the kernel-entries.

Also you can use address IP instead of a “tree” name, but this does not work with GroupWise.

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) server – Suse

Based on research work by the rdesktop project, xrdp uses the Remote Desktop Protocol to present a graphical login to a remote client. Xrdp can connect to a VNC server or another RDP server. To enable the xrdp you need to download and install the software xrdp RPMS,

Yast->Software->Software Managmen

and type xrdp in search tab and then install xrdp.

Also open the 3389 port on a firewall.

GoTo Yast's firewall module --> Allowed Services --> Select --> Remote Desktop Protocol --> Add.

The next step is to start the service.

If you want the service on permanently goto:

Yast --> System --> Services / Runlevels --> xrdp --> Enable

If you want the service occasionslly, enable it with sudo /usr/sbin/rcxrdp start
and turn it off with sudo /usr/sbin/rcxrdp stop

And then install on a remote machine Remmina, it is a remote desktop connection client able to display and control a remote desktop session. It supports multiple network protocols in an integrated and consistant user interface. Currently RDP, VNC, NX, XDMCP and SSH protocols are supported.

zypper install remmina


apt-get install remmina

Create the /dev/random

In SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 the /dev/random is missing, to create it use the mknod command (mknod – make block or character special files):

mknod /dev/random c 1 9

The /dev/random is a special file that serves as a random number generator or as a pseudorandom number generator. It allows access to environmental noise collected from device drivers and other sources.[citation needed] Not all operating systems implement the same semantics for /dev/random. Linux was the first operating system to implement a true random number generator in this way.

Desktop doesn't remember brightness settings after a reboot.

Every time I reboot my laptop the brightness goes back to 100% in Gnome. I wish it would keep the last one setting. Here is a quick workaround for that:-) edit the /etc/rc.local file by typing: vim /etc/rc.local and add the following line:
echo 5 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

It looks like this:
root@ProBook:~# cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
root@ProBook:~# echo 5 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
root@ProBook:~# vim /etc/rc.local
root@ProBook:~# cat /etc/rc.local
#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.
echo 12 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

exit 0

After the reboot the Gnome keeps our settings 🙂

Disabling the SUSE boot splash screen with the little white progress bar.

To disable the green SUSE boot splash screen with the little white progress bar:

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
and set “splash=silent” to “splash=verbose” That will do 🙂
or/and enter the command echo 0 >/proc/splash on the command line to disable the graphical screen. To activate it again, enter echo 1 >/proc/splash.
