  1. I installed openSUSE Leap 42.3 64bit on vmware and tried to install airvpn linux 64bit client (also tried 32bit version). the packet manager (YaST2) installed the everything successfully but while installing airvpn package, it gives an error "Package airvpn is broken, integrity check has failed.". I redownloaded and retried to install the package a couple of times but it didnt work. The OS is completely updated. Vmware system: intel i53230m 2 core 4gb ram. laptop: Lenovo z500 2013 I downloaded again at least 10 times and retried to install. This is the last error details: Error: INVALID:airvpn-2.13.6-0.x86_64 (file-baac50db): Signature verification failed [4-Signatures public key is not available] Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 400d7698: NOKEY Header SHA1 digest: OK (90ce2c917b580766d56fea0af16e59db6eb982bc) V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 400d7698: NOKEY MD5 digest: OK (0de918f61441971d0ba6f8b7da2556c4 Also when I ignore the error and install the package, airvpn isnt shown and i cannot use it. portable client works but I wanna install. Is there any way to install or solve the problem in openSUSE?
  2. Usage of operating systems is like living in countries: There are laws, things you may or may not do. Also, there are people, talking one or two certain languages, behaving in a certain way. Operating systems are like that: There are restrictions on the system what you can do and what is more difficult. And there is software, supporting certain languages, behaving in a certain way. You can of course decide to use two or more OSes, but it's like renting a holiday cottage and visiting it a few times a year. There's always home, as there's always a primary OS. I chose this simile because it reflects a bit of myself. I lived a certain amount of my lifetime in Russia, and now I live in Germany. Two different legal systems, two different kinds of people. As it is with switching my primary OS: I've been using Windows for a certain amount of time and now I switched to Linux. Why? Windows more and more gives me the feeling that it's nothing but a machine for procrastination and entertainment (besides being a cash cow for Microsoft). Like Facebook, where scrolling through your feed gives neither knowledge nor wisdom, it's only good at burning time. Also, Microsoft's recent publications marked them the enemy for me: What reputable, customer-centered company would publically say "Our goal is to have 1 billion Windows (10) installations by 2018"? It just shows me that Windows is no longer the OS "you want to fall in love with". Also, when Windows 10 was announced along with the Windows-as-a-Service plan, I really started to question my habits. I would not want to pay for an OS which spys on people and restricts both your creativity and productivity. My intention with this post is to show how easy or difficult it is to switch to Linux and what steps it involved for me so you get an idea how much work is needed. The thread can then be used for discussions. The first decision one needs to make, besides deciding to actually switch, is which distribution one's going to use (and which desktop environment but that's another thing). Since I work with SUSE Linux Exterprise in the company, I wanted to use OpenSUSE. So I downloaded a Live CD of it, wrote it on a USB drive and attempted to start it. It didn't work, it hang on a "Assuming drive cache: write through" message referencing the USB drive. To see whether it's a problem with USB, I went ahead and installed it. This time, it worked, and I was welcomed with GNOME. And while I was making my first steps in this new world.. it hung itself up. Just like that. It still did after several reboots. So I was thinking, maybe it was a driver issue because I experienced dozens of those in the past. So I downloaded Ubuntu to see if this would work, and the Live CD did. I didn't install it, though. It's popular and maybe it has the highest compatibility with different kinds of hardware (due to easy access to proprietary drivers) but I thought to myself, I don't want a distribution aimed at beginners. I also used Linux Mint on my netbook and found it too much pre-configured (but Cinnamon was cool!). So I decided to go with Debian out of a few reasons. I like how Debian puts you in control while you don't need to configure everything in detail.There's this huge software repository, of course.It's well documented and supported.I also like Debian's mindset about free software, like the DFSG (there also were some guidelines on behavior inside the community or something like it but I don't find the links anymore ).Installed, booted, same hanging. Here the DE would "crash" and show a shell with one repeated message from nouveau: "GPU lock". This is where I knew it has to be the open source driver causing this; it forced me to use the proprietary driver for now. Its installation could be done in two ways: By downloading it from nVidias homepage or from Debian's non-free repos. I chose the latter since it was easier to set up. I even found a guide for this. Anyway, the drivers fixed the only hardware problem I had with switching. Next steps included the configuration of the OS for production. Setting up Cinnamon This included spawning a few desklets and altering the taskbar. xkcd on your desktop, what could be cooler than being greeted with one of these when you log in? And of course a system monitor. Mounting the other drives I reserved a 500 GiB partition for Linux, but there's still the other half of the hard drive plus my Windows 8.1 SSD and a 2 TiB media drive, all of which I wanted to have access to from Linux. Mounting the SSD and the media drive was easy and I "hardcoded" it directly into /etc/fstab. But the other half of the hard drive caused a small error. The thing is, it still contains a working Windows installation which I kept there to allow troubleshooting the SSD in case it failed. mount told me it wouldn't mount the partition in read-write mode because Windows was allegedly not shut down completely. I don't know what the Windows 8 bootloader is doing but going through man mount I found an option to clear the hibernation cache or something which did the trick.Installing and setting up programs I needed I was using mostly open source and cross-platform software on Windows, in general software which was also available on Linux. Even migrating settings sometimes involved a simple move command (like Firefox and Thunderbird profiles). Also installed Steam and Wine. And Steam on Wine, though I use this combination in very rare occasions. I was very surprised to see almost all games I played on Windows were available as Linux builds on Steam. So much for "Linux is not ready for gaming". Also: openvpn and airvpn, both of which work much better than on Windows in terms of stability, qbittorrent, vlc, PDF editing tools, a number of others as well. Some of these apps were installed to replace already included things, for example zsh instead of bash.Overall experience Linux is a wonderful desktop OS. But it depends on many points how easy or difficult it will be for you. Sometimes the switch fails because of unsupported hardware. As you have read, the open source driver nouveau has its problems with certain nVidia graphics cards. When I searched for this on the internet I found out I am not the only one with this: nVidia don't support nouveau like they supported nv so most work on nouveau had to be done by reverse engineering their proprietary drivers which involved much work and time I imagine.Most people at my age don't switch because they use Windows for gaming, especially for playing the notorious "triple A" games which are traditionally Windows/DirectX only, using the newest tech hardware and software can offer. I can understand this point of view, even I still have Windows on my SSD which I see as a last reserve when Wine fails. There was no reason to boot Windows yet so update-wise it's like 60 days behind. But in most cases it fails because people have no experience with Linux. Most of them expect it to work like Windows. "Windows != Linux" is often cited in this case - Windows is not Linux. Linux does not aim to be like Windows, Linux also doesn't want to be a replacement for Windows. Understanding this is key if you're new to it. If you do the switch, be ready to read. Like, a lot. As for me, I had experience with Linux before. The hardware problem was a small one, multiple smaller complications arose, ensued, were overcome and I don't focus my time on gaming. My choice is clear. What about you? Planning on switching? Maybe you already use Linux? If yes, tell us which distribution and desktop you use and why. Give some tips for "potential switchers", for newbies and for pros if you like. Windows you ditch, to Linux you switch. Edit: I have stumbled upon my second self on Reddit who wrote this:
  3. I just installed the latest Eddie for opensuse x86_64 and when I try to start it I get this in the logs. It doesn't connect since it says command not found. Obviously iptables is installed but I think it's a syntax error. The ',' maybe shouldn't be there? No idea and at this point I just want it to work. It was working before the update and it doesn't now. Also can't downgrade since I haven't kept the old package. Snipped logs because they just repeat, let me know if you need all of them:
  4. I've been running Fedora 22 for a while and had to install beesu in order to get Eddie functioning,however having beesu installed is causing me issues when it comes to upgrading to Fedora 23. I'm thinking of going to OpenSuse KDE but will I need to install beesu on Open Suse in order to get Eddie working? I'm open to all ideas here as I'm still a Linux noob so the more input the better. Thanks
  5. Using OpenSUSE 13.2, through terminal (because the GUI simply does not open) when I exit the process with Ctrl+C twice I get: Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for System.Drawing.GDIPlus ---> System.DllNotFoundException: libgdiplus.so at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Drawing.GDIPlus:GdiplusStartup (ulong&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupInput&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupOutput&) at System.Drawing.GDIPlus..cctor () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at System.Drawing.Icon.Dispose () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check) System.Drawing.Icon:Dispose () at System.Drawing.Icon.Finalize () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 This should be fixed. Btw is the package maintained? I haven't seen any updates or anything. Do I have to add a repo? Since I apparently can't open a second issue until this gets approved I'd like to ask about the GUI that doesn't work. Is it only me? Are there logs somewhere I can see? I don't see anything in /var/log/. Is any other opensuse user having the same problem with the GUI? When I press the shortcut it simply does nothing.
  6. In the last release the network lock worked just fine but now when I look at iptables there's nothing there. Also the client does a bit of crashing from time to time.
  7. Hi all, first post here, site looks like a fantastic resource. I have installed the Europeian and Asian server files and several individual server files on to my openUSE Gnome 13.10.02 box as per the Gnome Network Manager tutorial. Everything went fine until I checked for DNS leaks using GRC'S https://www.grc.com/dns/dns.htm I was still querying my ISP's DNS. I manually set each VPN to use OpenNIC's non logging DNS http://www.opennicproject.org/, I have sucssesfully done this with Mint and Ubuntu using Gnome Network Manager. However I seem to be having an issue with OpenSUSE, I can only connect reliably to the Swedish server and occasionally to the Netherlands, non of the others ie Europe/Asia/Romania/Luxumberg/Singapore even though they are all configured identically. I have obviously broken something by manually setting the DNS. I also don't know and cannot find the openSUSE command to open the openvpn logs which isn't helping. Any help much appreciated.
