I've got a weird issue this morning. I did a zypper ref on my Tumbleweed install and the signing key for Google Chrome failed. I then reinstalled Google's Linux signing key. Zypper says the key can't be found at the Google Chrome Repo or some such. I aborted installing from that repo. and am proceeding with my zypper dup right now with the rest of this weeks updates. 

How do you solve this kind of issue when zypper doesn't find the key or doesn't like the key? How the hell do you let Google know? They are notorious for being hard to communicate with.

+Steven Hess That was kind of my point. It's the file list itself, the repo.xml file or whatever (can't remember the actual filename at the moment). Like, for example, someone had changed it to point to a bad file, similar to what happened with the Mint repo. So, yeah, at this point the entire site is suspect.

Here's a report from my presentation at Greek conference. My subject was "Why you should use Tumbleweed". You can get the file and use it yourself. Enjoy...

Thanks for sharing hero! Next time a new arrival is seeking clarity on installing #LEAP vs #Tumbleweed, I'll have a go-to to share to help with their decision.

I'm getting ready to install tumbleweed and was looking for partitioning advice.. I like the idea of snapshots and rolling back... I have two drives and on other distros I usually do on drive with /(ext4) and swap. The other drive I use for /home(xfs).

I would like to do similar, just not sure on how to take advantage of SUSE's abilities.. do they all have to be btrfs?

Thanks

Thanks for all the input everyone... I settled with root and swap being on one 120gb ssd, so plenty of space. And then I have /home on a 1tb ssd with XFS

I'm having trouble updating openSuse Leap to KDE 5.6: whenever I try to upgrade, KDE refuses to start, complaining that a variable $DISPLAY is either missing or not set. My systems work perfectly with KDE 5.5.

To upgrade, I added the following repositories:
• KDE:/Qt5/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/
• KDE:/Applications/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/
• KDE:/Frameworks5/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/
• KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/

Then, I use Yast to upgrade libQt5Core and let the system resolve all the dependencies for me. It tells me that several hundred packages must be upgraded, I confirm and restart the computer. The boot process ends in runlevel 3. Graphical desktop refuses to load, even if I try to start X from command line.

From some time, may be three o four days, I can't play any multimedia file in Tumbleweed. No problem with anything form web browser. Everything worked well before.

+Pedro Rosado You can't remove GStreamer. Too many applications depend on it in some form.
You still have not answered which players don't work. How do you expect to get help if you don't answer follow-up basic questions?

The speed of WLAN connection on Linux is driving me mad: 10KB/s at most! I've never encountered this problem in Windows or with my old Dell laptop which also uses another Realtek WLAN card. No idea what's goes wrong with this RTL8723BE card...

Opensuse has a package Kernel-Firmware there is a newer version for rtlwifi based in git. Once I updated to the git version, my USB-WLAN device, which needed the rtl8192cu Firmware worked at full Speed. (Nur only until I installed the Nvidia Driver)

Hi! My Tumbleweed changes the keyboard layout very often. So, I need to restart the notebook or apply the layout again in configurations (the layout doesn't change the "name"). Can someone help me with this? Thanks

Maybe some other software (KDE or GNOME?) has a different idea of what your current keymap should be.

Ok let's say I installed some application that when installing herself she installed some othere needed applications as well. Now I want to uninstall that app, but I also want to uninstall that other apps that she installed. Is there a way to do this ?
Example: I installed vlc, and vlc installed some other stuff, now when I uninstall vlc how to uninstall that other stuff too ?

Use the "Options" -> "Cleanup when deleting packages" menu item in the Yast software manager. It activates the same cleanup algorithm as "zypper rm -u" does.

Question - openSUSE 13.1 updating on non-PAE machines

Is anyone else running non-PAE based machines running openSUSE 13.1; having/had issues post-update with it failing to load anymore??  

I realize few will be in this boat; but I've had all openSUSE machines that are non-PAE processors all fail on reboot after updating (may have been many-updates prior to reboot; which could be my problem; as I note -29 was last working kernel on each; updated to -34 then -40 before I actually rebooted & noticed failure).

3.11.10-29 was flawless; but later kernel updates seem to result in failure to boot; mount or non-GUI.   Yes I realize that kernel was awhile ago, but I rarely reboot & have seen one by one fail, only when they're re-booted.

I've had no issues on PAE capable machines (which are usually x86_64 anyway)  ps: I'm not seeking help on fix; just question (I always install 2x OS' so each machine, so they're running debian for now)

:: mount issue I suspect is grub confused; partition related
:: no GUI I assume is driver issue; all use nvidia [lsmod...]
::  kernel panic; maybe same issue as other two; or both?  (non-text logs are annoying when system won't run)

Is anyone else running non-PAE based machines; and had this issue with openSUSE 13.1 ??

 or even better use openSUSE on non-PAE thinkpad's or cpu's & NOT had any problems! ??  (is it just me?)

Does anyone else get "Assuming drive cache: write through" and a hang when trying to install from USB? I get this every single time I try to boot and install either tumbleweed or leap and can't get around it. Help would be wonderful

The "Assuming ...." is OK. What happens if you wait. In some exceptional cases it can take a long time before the installer actually starts.

How is the new Gnome-software OS updates implemented into the base system?
Gnome-Software tells me that there are important OS updates where Yast shows nothing?

This is with Gnome 3.20 Tumbleweed.

Guys, don't mix yast online update and yast software manager. The first only considers the update repo, the second all repos.

Greetings. I'm still pretty much a Linux noob but I've been drinking the Canonical koolaid for about a 8 or 9 months now. I'm interested in giving +openSUSE​ a try. For basic everyday stuff, like web, email, word-processing and spreadsheets, how does one typically decide between Leap or Tumbleweed? I understand that Tumbleweed is rolling and as such gets latest versions and updates more quickly compared to Leap, but do I really want that for what I'm going to use it for? How should I decide?

Many updates mean that many things need fixing, many things change and a perpetual morphing environment is not the environment one would want to raise kids, (It's a metaphor)

Beside reading about what's advertised and what some think of some distro is kinda irrelevant to me as I use them, daily. At home, at work, for fun and for money.

I like Leap. Really! I like Tumbleweed, I like weed too!
Makes little to no difference what I like as I started pushing the keys on the keyboard when I was a tad taller than as a regular XT keyboard.
You too, probably.
Don't bet this about +Robert Blank
So, for a beginner, I'd recommend something not too sharp but not too dull either.

Older releases are amazingly stable, they get almost no major updates that could shift the initial experience (that one after installing and fully updating) and they are still able to run any other version of user software that might be needed. 
Many years after their active  support ending they'll still be rock solid systems.
You know... like the older we get the more we approach perfection. At least at an intellectual level. Nothing is eternal is the other fact but 13.2 is not yet obsolete.
12.2 neither.

Best regards.
