  3. FreeNX on SuSE 10.0 and 9.3

    Well… FreeNX is the best remote controlling system now on earth and pretty easy to install on our Suse distro. Just open YaST and search for freenx and select all related packets. Do you think it’s enoght? the answer that you are waitin for it’s NO :D I put here a link of a well done tutorial on MadPenguin.org ( cause, you know, I’m lazy :P ) And for you that dont understand why you cant still connect after this tutorial, here is the troubleshoot: Error message Server not installed or NX access disabled If you see the following error message it means that the nx user’s public key was not accepted.: NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 6721
    NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
    NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
    NX> 200 Connected to address: 192.168.2.21 on port: 22
    NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
    NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
    NX> 204 Authentication failed.
    This can be caused by a couple of things. the nx user’s authorized key file /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/authorized_keys2 is incorectly named. All versions of ssh that I have seen on Ubuntu, Fedora, Redhat/Centos and OFCOURSE suse are configured to look for an authoized key file names .ssh/authorized_keys not .ssh/authorized_keys2. You can rename the authorized_keys file but it might be better to reconfigure sshd_config because the nxserver –stop command renames the .ssh/authorized_keys2 to .ssh/authorized_keys2.disabled to prevent access via an nxclient
    sshd is not running or is incorrectly configured. At minimum you need PubkeyAuthentication yes in the sshd_config file
    The server and client public keys might be different. At install the server and client use a default key which should be changed. You can open /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/authorized_keys and compare its contents to the key stored in the client by:
    Open the client tool
    Click the Configure button
    Click the Key button on the General Tab
    Ensure that the key matches the key found in /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server Enjoy FreeNX, enjoy openSuSE Antonio …

  7. the Cron Jobs :)

    (* extract from suse administration manual ) The cron tables are located in /var/spool/cron/tabs. /etc/crontab serves as a systemwide cron table. Enter the name of the user who should run the command directly after the time table. In Example 10.1, “Example of an Entry in /etc/crontab”, root is entered. Package-specific tables, located in /etc/cron.d, have the same format. See man cron. …

  9. ps2 optical mouse

    It is sooo strange but this Logitech optical doesnt work on OpenSuse 10.0 and you have to act a trick. I hate this cause people get far from linux when they get problems like this =( and I HATE this… wanna see linux on every machine I sell and I hope this for the future.
    Anyway this is the trick: open Yast -> System -> bootloader configuration
    modify the boot option and add psmouse.proto=imps to Other Kernel Parameters
    reboot and that’s it! enjoy your suse

  10. ipv6 problems AGAIN

    AGAIN since 9.1 version, ipv6 still break your internet connection, delaying DNS answere and giving the TIMEOUT ERROR! To disable this annoying thing, just edit /etc/modules.conf, go to the line containing “net-pf-10 ipv6” and change to “net-pf-10 off”.
    Restart your machine and the world will smile again! happy suse!
