With OpenSuSE switching to systemd completely in version 12.3, init.d scripts are slowly being phased out. Although systemd can use init.d scripts, it much prefers .system files instead. That all being said, OpenSuSE has some nice features that other distros don't have. For example, in OpenSuSE, chckconfig foo on still works to enable services. In other ...

I just discovered that another way to do this in OpenSuse and Suse is to use Services Manager GUI in YAST. Just find the service nameed dnsmasq and ensure its enabled and you can start and stop from the GUI. Active = running, Inactive = stopped.

I'm not that familiar with SuSE but on other distros you can use the service command to stop/start/restart services. Perhaps something like this would do it: $ sudo service dnsmasq restart

Had a similar issue these days. Installing pulseaudio and pavucontrol solved the problem for me. After the installation you have to run pavucontrol and configure your sound cards once.

From a link given on gmane site: It would be nice to be able to click "Load Profile", select "Purist" (loading the fonts from the KDE global settings), then have an option to update the current custom settings to match that profile, and then tweak those settings for KMail by checking the "Use custom fonts" check box. Hope, this may help.

In openSUSE, there are a few ways of listing installed files. With Zypper, I would try: zypper search -i --or-- zypper search --installed-only With RPM, you can try: rpm -ql packageName | less

Check the UEFI entry on the openSUSE wiki, and for example openSUSE Forums for instructions how to install the bootloader shim. Also see the related SO post. Since you are not interested in dual booting, you might also want look for a way to add more keys to the UEFI on your computer, so that you can get rid of the Microsoft bootloader entirely. Another ...

It seems that, on some computers, the UEFI (which I assume you have, based on that behavior) or the shipped Windows 8 installation, is configured in a way that does not permit you to install anything next to or instead of Windows 8, and, if you managed to wipe out Windows 8, just starts off a recovery partition. The solution, according to this german forum ...

To the googlers of the future: next to @SailorCore's wonderful solution :-), there is also a tool named scout, which is able to search in practically everything, we can find rpm-s for a binary just as we can find the jars for a given java class.

To search from all available packages to find a particular file, you can use the option wp or se --provides --match-exact as an example: zypper se --provides --match-exact hg You will see output similiar to the following: Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... S | Name | Summary | Type ...
