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?

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

Hey, so I been redoing my libvirtd servers and I notice that sshd_config
and ssh_config files are no longer in /etc/ssh
There are now ssh_config.d and sshd_config.d folders. I have to enable root
login because i have a master virt-manager that manages the other libvirtd
This new setup disables root access all together and I spent a few hours
trying to google how to re-enable root access.
I also need to know how to set my port back up on their special. Can
someone explain to me what I need to do, I figure it dropping in a config
into the folders.

Hi, I'm using Tumbleweed on RPi 4 and the gvim package is pretty hopeless. Not sure if this is related to the platform I'm running, or if it's just buggy. If any OpenSuse developers are reading this, please take note of the following:
1. The only gvim available in Tumbleweed repo is the one with Gtk3. The Gtk3 GUI is painfully jerky/laggy when scrolling lines of text. Debian for example, have Gtk2 and Gtk3 versions of gvim. Could someone please do the same for OpenSuse.
2. There is a really annoying bug with OpenSuse gvim. When I split the window vertically, there is no scroll bar visible on the right window, the left window has a correct scroll bar. This looks like a GUI bug of some sort, but it has been like this for quite some time now. Does anyone use gvim on Tubleweed and can confirm the same issue?
My USB-Bluetooth adapter can't pair with my bluetooth headset.
It worked in Leap 15.2.
The bluetooth assistant, i.e. the bluetooth applet searches for the
headset, but doesn't find it.

I installed OS 15.3 on a Lenovo Ideapad Duet 3.
One problem is that the grub menu, all boot messages, the decryption
passphrase and the KDE-login screen are shown rotated (instead of up to
down the lines go left to right).
and also tried
They have no effect.
What else can I try?
