I have the following error when I try and update TW at the moment. Is this just one of those instances where you wait for a couple of days for it to fix itself or is my system missing something?
Problem: Mesa-vulkan-device-select-32bit-21.0.2-275.3.x86_64 requires libvulkan_intel-32bit = 21.0.2, but this requirement cannot be provided
deleted providers: libvulkan_intel-32bit-21.0.2-275.3.x86_64
Solution 1: Following actions will be done:

Solution 3: install steam-220.127.116.11-1.2.i586 despite the inferior architecture
Solution 4: break Mesa-vulkan-device-select-32bit-21.0.2-275.3.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies
Opening the Thunderbird mail client today I was greeted with the
A news (NNTP) error occured: Permission denied: To much connection time.
1. I have been having some on again off again issues with the Eternal
September Newsgroup server. I will send a message and get a notice that
the message can not be sent. I have ended up sending messages message
multiple times. Possibly causing distress to the specific group users.
Eternal September Server Settings: Server Name >
new.eternal-september.org > Port > 119
Eternal September Security Settings: Security Settings > Connection
security > none
I have added Newsgroup "news.aioe.org" and with this Newsgroup server
test messages seem to be sent without error. The test messages sent
through "news.aioe.org" do not seem to show in the Eternal September
(news.eternal-september.org) mailbox promptly though.
This seems to happen intermittently. Obviously due to my lack of
experience this could be a settings issue of some nature on my end. I
wanted to get your opinions on some possible solutions that I may be
able to try to implement here.
Hi - I am running OpenSuSE 15.2 x64 on my laptop with the KDE Plasma
desktop. I got an update notification yesterday for a security update
for VLC but when I try to install it I get an error message -
vlc-codecs-18.104.22.168-pm22.214.171.124.x86_64 requires vlc-noX = 126.96.36.199, but
this requirement cannot be provided
If the Packman repository is needed to resolve this issue then I have
another problem to resolve. If I try to enable and use the Packman
repository I get the following error -
An error occurred during repository initialization. SKIP request:
User-requested skipping of a file History: - Permission to access
What do I need to do to resolve these problems? Thanks in advance for
any advice. Marc C.

Subject: I am thinking of buying Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8GB with 7 or
10 inch touch screen display in June 2021
Good day from Singapore,
I am thinking of buying Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8GB with 7 or 10 inch
touch screen display in June 2021.
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B - 8GB (Latest) - Price SGD$120
Raspberry Pi 7 Inch Touch Screen Display With SmartiPi Case - Price SGD$147
Do you think it is a good match?
I want to use my Raspberry Pi like a regular laptop or desktop
computer. Would a 7 inch touch screen display be too small for my use
case? I don't want to strain my eyes looking at a small display.
However, if I get a 10 inch touch screen display, I can't find one
with a supporting base. I can't find a 10 inch touch screen display
with a supporting base which could allow the screen to stand
Finally, does your Linux distribution support Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8
GB? Can I do 4K Ultra HD video editing on the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8
GB? Like adding watermarks, and cutting away unwanted 4K scenes. Is
there a good 4K video editing software for Linux?
I am looking forward to your reply.
Thank you very much.

I am interested in your thoughts about using the 'KDE Wallet system' or
at least reviewing more about it. I see that if I proceed to setup with
KMail there is an option to use the KDE wallet system also. Activating
the machines wireless capability through: > System Settings > Network >
Connections > Wi-Fi Security > Password > Store Password for this user
only (encrypted) (entered password) > Apply > Exit (top right) >
Powercycled. No passphrase appears stored.
KDE Desktop > 'Wi-Fi password dialog window - KDE Daemon' asks for
password again....no connection.
I notice that I can set password and store password for all users (not
encrypted). Powercycle...no problem...password remembered. Except.
1. Where is the location of this none encrypted password file? If I
decide to go this route (it's known to work). How to revert on this -
remove this stored password for all users once this step is performed?
2. Any idea on as to why: > Store Password for this user only
(encrypted) (entered password) > Apply > Exit (top right) > Powercycled.
< Does not seem to store passphrase?
3. Could I ask for a preferred link in regards to openSUSE for the KDE
Wallet system (Using TDE here).
It seems this is basically a subtle nuance nevertheless it seems to
exist that is why I am asking.
I just got me a new laptop, so now I need to limit my screen resolution.
...the new laptop has a 14" 4K display, I really don't need 3840x2160 on that
little screen - FullHD should be more than enough, expecially when that means
better performance in games.
I know I can switch the resolution on a per user basis in Plasma or Gnome, but
how can I limit the whole thing to "only" 1920x1080? As in, even gdm/sddm runs
at that resolution?
Back in the olden days I'd put that in /etc/X11/xorg.conf or somewhere like
that, but nowadays that file doesn't exist and everything's autodetected...

Hi, I installed K3b on my 32 bit and 64 bit (TDE) computers and decided
to test how the application performed.
Settings > Configure K3b > Devices > Displays the following error:
In order to give K3b full access to the writer device the current user
needs be added to a group cdrom.
The Permission helper that could do this for you was not enabled during
Please rebuild the package with the Permission helper enabled or contact
K3b was able on both machines (32 and 64 bit TDE) to complete the
burning of an .iso and verify without incident.
I attached a screenshot of the error message here. >
1. How can I enable this permission helper that is spoke of?
2. How should I go about adding a cdrom group? I am not seeing the
capability in (YaST > Control Center > Security and Users > User and
Group Management >) most likely I am missing something about how to use
this particular module.
3. Do I need to uninstall K3b and reinstall again (once a group cdrom is
4. Will removing K3b and the dependencies of K3b through YaST Software
Manager create potential dependency problems?
5. I was looking at this YaST CD-ROM Drives module page: >
Most likely I am missing something in the YaST - User and Group
Management section. Is there a preferred openSUSE Wiki Portal on this
topic of adding groups and users through YaST?
I looked at this information briefly and it refers to a CD-ROM Drives
module: > https://en.opensuse.org/YaST_CD-ROM_Drives < Seems to be not
relevant most likely.
What are your thoughts on this matter?
I recently attempted to Hold/Lock a specific kernel in place on openSUSE
TW. My hardware is 32 bit so I am currently inhibited by having to load
a specific kernel-release (a newer release is not allowing the computer
to boot). See the following link if you are interested in more details
on the filed bug report: ->
I edited the following file with Kate text editor /etc/zypp/zypp.conf
scrolled down to line 554 and edited the following entry to:
multiversion.kernels = latest,running,5.11.16-1-pae
" Keep the last two kernels and the one currently running.
multiversion.kernels = latest,running,5.11.16-1-pae "
I saved the edited file and closed Kate. I then opened
/etc/zypp/zypp.conf and verified that in fact the entry I created had
been saved. Then I powercycled the computer (maybe twice I am not
certain-most likely only once). Needless to say that the boot menu has
no more listing for "kernel-5.11.16-1-pae". There were 2 listing's for
kernel-5.12.series (both unbootable).
I have been reviewing the following link concerning this: >
1. I really would like to ask as to if the reason for failing to hold
the "kernel-5.11.16-1-pae" was/is this because of the fact I edited the
zypp.conf file's entry incorrectly by adding the "kernel-flavor" suffix
(5.11.16-1-pae <-Not Entering-> 5.11.16-1) instead?
2. What is the best way to Hold/Lock the running kernel?
3. is YaST2 sometimes used for this task?
