I have downloaded the TDExpress14.10.00.02_Sles11_40GB.7z. I was trying to run it using VM ware player, At first attempt it runs fine in a GUI mode, but once I restarted it, It reboted in command mode instead of GUI. I have trtied it many times and each time it doesnt work after restart.
If anyone else has faced this issue before, please let me know.
Infact I did nothing special, just rebooted the VM, and it goes directly yo commandline mode after boot.
I am unable to share screen shot here. But it happens always when I restart the machine after first boot :(
Hi Dieter/ Khurram ,
I wanted to install free version for Teradata 14 onto one of the VM provided to me. Can somebody tell me if i need to install the SUSE linus free iso image and then the Teradata 14 database? If yes, can somebody give me the link where i can install the TD 14 database software. While searching, i came across varios files of Teradata express for VM WARE , assuming that it can directly get installed on a new physical machine ( which i can use as a test lab). I already downloaded the below :
TDExpress14.10_Sles10_1TB_VP_30cache (4.3 GB)
openSUSE-13.1-DVD-x86_64 (4.4 gb)
getting some what confused now. Please help
I have a similar GUI problem with TDE 14.10 for VMware. After using it a few times, I closed VMware Player and selected "Power Down VM" option (without issuing a Halt in Linux guest). When I next tried to use the TDE VM, the login prompt was from the command line and not the graphical prompt and no X-terminal desktop ever appeared. I tried init 5 but nothing happened. I tried startx (no arguments) and got a fatal server error (signal 11), followed by "xinit: No such file or directory...".
I doubt that this caused the problem but I installed VMware tools before I powered down.
Any suggestions on how to restart X?
I have powered down and/or suspended earlier versions of TDE for VMware many times without this problem. Are you supposed to Halt the Linux guest OS every time you want to close the VM or is it OK to power down or suspend?
The 14.10 VM on SUSE11 is very faulty. It starts iceVM instead of any 'regular' one, it has trouble with pango and the Teradata Studio/eclipse, no start gnome-session... etc
I had a hard time configuring it, and I had it in init 3 for a while (just as a pure teradata server)...
But I'd put the blame on the vmware tools, which install virtual video cards and mess up with the X Window System.
