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.

Recently installed ClawsMail since Thunderbird now refuses to accept any password from me. Problem:
When trying to receive mail, get failure message: ERROR: Connection to pop.DESKTOP-R7/M9UON:110 failed.
Can anyone tell me how to fix that, please? --doug
I have been beating my head against smartctl for over two hours now. I cannot seem to get the command
"long" accepted, as the various tutorials explain. When I try to insert it, I get an error, like this:
linux1:~ # smartctl long /dev/nvme0n1

ERROR: smartctl takes ONE device name as the final command-line argument.
You have provided 2 device names:
(It doesn't like "short" either.) And my typing is getting worse! It doesn't help that my drive is called /dev/nvme0n1.
As I mentioned earlier, the lightning strike has damaged something in this, my main computer, and I'm trying to
find out what. For those who missed the earlier post, the only thing I can connect to here is the internet. I cannot
see the printers or the laptop machine, and nmap basically doesn't work.
I started this quest at 11:30 PM and it's now 3:30 AM. I'm going to bed!
Hi, all --
This is probably a VM-ish question rather than a SuSE-ish question, but
since I'm running OpenSuSE I figured I could ask here to get started :-)
I want to create a VM on host X and view it from my host Y desktop. All
of the examples I've seen show someone working locally. Can either of
these tools support running the VM "there" but viewing and interacting
with it "here"?
If not, is there another simple and free hypervisor that will fill the
bill? I'm not particularly in love with either, not least since I have no
experience; they just seem to be at the top of everyone's "virtualization
for dummies" lists.
I just want to run a few simple VMs, but I have neither the disk space nor
the extra RAM on my little desktop to do so -- and I don't particularly
want to have to get up and go to the coat^Wserver closet any time I have
to access them.
TIA & HAND
I guess the lightning got me this time. YAST message:
An error occurred during repository initialization. [https-download.opensuse.org-e14d6223|https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP1:/GA/pool/] Valid metadata not found at specified URL History: - [https-download.opensuse.org-e14d6223|https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/SUSE:/SLE-15-SP1:/GA/pool/] Repository type can't be determined.
Is this fixable or must I reinstall the whole system? Agh!
