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
/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.
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,
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
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. 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.
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
# 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
# By default this script does nothing.
echo 12 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
After the reboot the Gnome keeps our settings 🙂
To disable the green SUSE boot splash screen with the little white progress bar:
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.
