After the lightning bolixed up all the computers, I bought a cheap refurb that had Windows10 Home on it. I decided to make
a partition for OpenSUSE Leap 15.3. I used gparted to shrink windows and make a partition for Leap 15.3. I downloaded the
latest version and installed it. It seems to have wiped out Windows and created for itself something that must be related
to hell. Most of the apps that I could download and install on a version from last Fall are gone and unfindable, When I
placed the few that I could find on the desktop, when I rebooted they were gone. So was Windows.The only thing I could do
that remained was to get rid of the ugly stock desktop and replace it with something pleasant. I have used Linux for
almost 20 years, and I really don't understand Windows, on a partially working machine, or want to, but I'm having to use
it until I find a new Linux. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? It's like KDE is GONE!
The folks here on the mailing lists have been more than helpful to me, and I am grateful to them, but now I will have to
find something--probably Mint with a KDE overlay--that I can live with. I will really miss the root version of Dolphin.
Written from a badly damaged Windows computer (that has a usable Leap 15 on it) but still reads and sends mail on an
ugly app from optimum.net. (Claws mail I never got to work.)
for quite some time, I've noticed that the permissions and group of
/var/log/lastlog (and sometimes a few others, like [bw]tmp) differ
from what chkstat expects. This is, of course, easily fixed with chmod
and chown, but the old permissions tend to re-appear after zypper
It's probably not really a problem, but does anyone know where the
diffence comes from?

I just buy a 4k screen. Now my most usual setup is 27" 4k left, full HD
(laptop) center and full hd right.
The new screen should be used only for video editing, not always.
But my usual setup is completely changed by the new screen: even the
cursor size is changed (much bigger).
I use the "supplementary action" from kde to open my main applications
on the desktop I want (I have 10 of them), but fail to find a way to
have all my applications open in the "main" screen (as setup in the kde
panel), because the x coordinate changes
NB: I still use 15.1, for some reason I can't make my system works as
expected in 15.3
Steam is asking for python3-apt. The only package I see that I
have is python38-wrapt.
Is this the correct package. I don't know the name of the tumbleweed
version, and I don't
want to guess at it. Thanks,
The largest Mushkin SSD I can purchase is 2 Terabytes. What are your
thoughts on a drive that may be within my needs. If following the
basic/standard COW protocol.
So seriously.. it's just a "desktop computer" thinking about a
I do not like Crucial nor others on information (What is the nicest SSD
for openSUSE TW currently?) Honestly I really do not like to support
many more companies than my 85.00 USD a month internet provider now.
<-You may get my drift.
I am hoping to put the massive (to me) into an old HP Lenovo m-91p -
Everything is fine now with the - well all of it really. Just wanting to
see what your thoughts are on SSD's and Copy on Write. ----COW---- Copy
I thank you for your opinions.
Reading the documentation, I see that I could configure opensuse
machines as a FreeIPA client using the stock sssd, although the
ipa-client-install command is not available.
I see that yast could be used (yast2-auth-client), but I would like to
know if there's a non-interactive CLI tool I could use to automate the
I have a new ssd, I encrypted a partition and installed reiserfs (did
that on my 15.1 system).
Plugging it to my pad with 15.3 I saw that it canot handel it, and
searching I found that Opensuse decided to make my backups worthless.
So I plugged it again to the 15.1. used fdisk to delete the partition.
made a new partition in fdisk.
Wet to yast, clicked to istall an encrypted ext4 system. As after the
last click the window disappeared without further notice I assumend it
was done and unplugged the ssd. Received a nice message, that a process
was iterrupted (and I thanked a lot to the highly itelligent programmer
who closes a window without any hint about a still running process...).
Ok, wanted to repeat. But Yast says it cannot istall ext4 because some
cr_xxx is already here.
So again fdisk, delete partition, make a new one, back to Yast, same error.
So I wet the manual way (the ssd partition is sdg1):
dd_rescue -m 2M /dev/urandom /dev/sdg1
cryptsetup -v --key-size 256 luksFormat /dev/sdg1 my_cryptkey-file
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdg1 cr_sdg1
mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/cr_sdg1 /dev/mapper/cr_sdg1
here I get:
mkfs.ext4: invalid blocks '/dev/mapper/cr_sdg1' on device
Did I do an error?
How can I get my ssd back into a virgin state, to begin from scratch?
I need urgent help, because I go to travel tomorrow and must take those
ssd with me, working on 15.3...
Thank you very much for your help.

all my encrypted external disks are with reiserfs. No I want to
read/write to one of them on my new pad and it says "unkonwn filesystem
What do I have to install so that 15.3 remembers the forgotten system?
and libreiser4-1_2-1 and libaal-1_0-7
it can read the disks but not write to them.
What else do I need?
Need urgent help please, thanks!
