I'm trying to install VMWare Workstation Pro 16 onto my Tumbleweed system, and the installer is asking for the location of system scripts. I'm not entirely sure where that location is on Tumbleweed. Can someone point me in the right direction, please?
My new computer is an
HP 15s-eq2147 FHD RYZ5-5
16GB 512 SSD DOS
It has no cable connection to the internet, but only access via
WiFi. Installing Leap 15.3 was no problem, but so far I did not
manage to establish a WiFi connection.
Using Yast, I set up a wicked service with fixed address, getting
Device Name: wlan0
Configured with address 192.168.2.16/24 (acer.ariannuccia.zz)
Starting automatically on cable connection
I find it somewhat absurd that a cable connection is required even
for WiFi. Since I have no cable connection, I am looking for a work
around. Any idea?
The "Authentication Mode" offers these 5 options:
WEP - Open
WEP - Shared Key
On my router (192.168.2.1) there are these "Encryption type":
Unencrypted (not recommended)
WPA2 (very secure)
WPA / WPA2 (secure)
For avoiding problems with the correspondence of these methods, I
have selected "No Encryption" on my computer and "Unencrypted (not
recommended)" on my router.
But the connection does not work. Any attempt to ping the router
from the new computer is rejected with the reply:
connect: Network is unreachable
Any help would be welcome.
Thank you in advance and best regards,
I was wondering if anyone here had already upgraded production servers to LEAP 15.3 from LEAP 15.2? Have all the initial release bugs been squashed? I don't do anything super complex with my servers, but I don't mind waiting for some outstanding problems to be fixed.
Why do I keep seeing updates announced in the list, when zypper lu says
there is nothing to install? I just got a dump of 34 of them, maybe 50,
and out of all that, all I needed was an update to X. (And no, it's not
because I don't have those packages installed.)
It's also amusing to see a security update for Thunderbird to:
when current installed version is:
Today I bought a laptop with the following specifications:
Acer Aspire 3 (A317-52-30X0) 17,3" FHD IPS,
i3-1005G1, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Linuxs
Then I inserted the USB stick, which I had made bootable using
openSUSE-Leap-15.3-NET-x86_64.iso, i.e. for installation from
network, and switched the computer on.
Now, with the appropriate choice in the bios and the selection of
"Installation", it boots and loads the online repositories.
Then it asks for the "System Role": I select "Desktop with KDE Plasma".
Afterwards "Suggested Partitioning" appears; but I choose "Expert
Partitioner" --> "Start with Existing Partitions".
Then a table appears:
> Device Size F Enc Type Label Mount Point
> sda 7.84GiB usb 0x058f-Spaceloop 8GB
> sda1 3.45MiB EFI System-Partition-Partition
> sda2 142.42MiB ISO 9660 Partition openSUSE-Leap-15.3-NET-x86_64160
Now, when I try to add a partition, it shows a limit of 7.7GiB, i.e.
7.84GiB of the USB stick minus space for sda1 and sda2 (see table
So, I am offered the USB stick for partitioning, which makes no
sense because I want to partition the hard disk of 512GiB.
How can I get access to the hard disk?
Thank you in advance,
This PC is my brother's, originally installed 24 months ago by myself with 15.1.
He claims sleep/hibernate used to work before the upgrade to 15.2, and now 15.3.
He wants hibernate/sleep to work again. So far, I haven't found the secret to success.

The BIOS doesn't have any setting labeled S1 or S3, but the ACPI setting it does
have that Google says equates to S3 is enabled.
To generate the following, I first booted to multi-user, logged in as root, then
issued systemctl start systemd-suspend. The response was no different that I could
tell than by selecting sleep or hibernate from Plasma's Power/Session menu.
# journalctl -b
My search fu is fubar again. I was sure there was recent discussion about this
subject either on a mailing list or on the forums, but I'm not finding it.
Is there anything in the two logs to explain why an attempt to suspend or
hibernate results either in:
1-several seconds of black screen without a poweroff, then all coming back as if
resume had been intentionally triggered, or
2-several seconds of black screen without a poweroff, then all coming back as if
screenlocker had been triggered, or
Does anyone know of some bug that needs a workaround, or a fix or config change
Is this supposed to be controllable via YaST? The only place I see power control
settings are in Plasma's systemsettings, where screen energy saving and suspend
session are enabled, but the other three checkboxes (including button events) not.

The .spec for keepassxc has a problem. It refuses to install keepassxc
unless the user removes keepassx 0.4.x. That is unneeded. There is no actual
conflict and it is ridiculous for the package to insist on removal of a prior
Why was this new forced deprecation added?
David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
I tried to remove a repo using zypper, which I didn't want, and I think I might have accidentally removed an official one. Can anyone give me a list of all the repos I should have from a default TW install, please?
I'm really desperate now... got a new laptop Lenovo L15 AMD Ryzen 7 :)
really super in every way **except the WiFi** no matter what I try Leap
15.3 or Tumbleweed just can't get the WiFi going. I got the machine as
it is Ubuntu certified so thought should be ok. Googling seems to
suggest it works under Ubuntu, but no matter what I try just cant get
this WiFi going under openSUSE seems the driver from Realtek is up to
version 4.x but can't find any trace of it on openSUSE. FYI lspci and

I have got the driver from

Anyone got any idea how to get this working?
