openSUSE:Most annoying bugs 12.1

Jump to: navigation, search
This is excerpt from bugzilla for most annoying bugs and their suggested workarounds.



  • Bug #728755
    • Problem: KMail migration failure with 'Unable to fetch the resource collection'.
    • Cause: Incorrect value/target in ~/.kde4/share/config/specialmailcollectionsrc which points to non-existing resource file
    • Workaround (1): Delete the value in specialmailcollectionsrc (deleting the whole file may also work - I did not try it), next time you start KMail the resource file will be created and specialmailcollectionsrc updated.
    • Workaround (2): If you have an akonadi_maildir_resource_<number> file in ~/.kde4/share/config/ you can either rename it to match the value in specialmailcollectionsrc - or you can change the value in specialmailcollectionsrc to match the name (less rc at the end) of your existing maildir resource file.
  • Bug #725917
    • Problem: System is switched from sysvinit to systemd during upgrade.
    • Workaround: is to install the sysvinit-init package. As soon as its install gets acknowledged the removal of the systemd-sysvinit package will be suggested.
  • Bug #673845
    • Problem: kernel module lp is not loaded automatically
    • Workaround: Add the module named lp to file /etc/sysconfig/kernel in MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT=
  • Bug #731570
    • Situtation: After upgrade from older openSUSE release some KDE users have problem when log in with their usual user name; plasma crashes leaving them without desktop. If they create new user they are able to log in.
    • Problem: Temporary KDE data from previous installation, stored in /var/tmp/kdecache-<user_name> are not cleared. Usually that is not a problem, but obviously in some setups it is.
    • Note: Above problem can have different symptoms depends on your setup before upgrade.
    • Workaround: Log in to text mode and remove offending items in /var/tmp/kdecache-<user_name> . Replace <user_name> with actual user name.

Running system

  • Bug #721782
    • Problem: SUSE KDM Theme doesn't allow WINBIND/SAMBA login.
    • Workaround: In /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager change DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME to DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME="" in other words to empty string.
  • Bug #746595
    • Problem: NumLock is not enabled although specified in /etc/sysconfig/kbd when systemd is used
    • Workaround: unknown
  • Bug #731551
    • Problem: with systemd, "halt" does not power off the system
    • Workaround: revert to sysvinit or issue "halt -p" instead.
