I am using k3b v0.11.12-4 which is an update of the original version
SuSE 9.1. The kernel is the last one for SuSE 9.2 : 2.6.8-24.5. This
distro runs on an Asus laptop L5D
with a DVD/CD burner made by Toshiba. This is a SD-R6112 burner :
and CD-RW. k3b seems to have a curious behaviour : the device "Toshiba
SD-R6112" is well recognized for erasing a burned DVD-RW and it is not
for erasing a burned CD-RW when k3b is used by a user account. All is
the root account. In the /dev, there are two symbolic links :
/dev/dvdrecorder -> /dev/hdb
and /dev/cdrecorder -> /dev/hdb. The group for /dev/hdb is disk. With ou
user account put in the group disk, the problem is the same. With an
older version (0.10) of
k3b with SuSE 9.0 AMD64, all is good. If someone can find the origin of
this problem .....
I have this problem on both 9.1 and 9.2 64bit versions.
As an example I went to install Firefox 1.0 64bit, Yast prompts me to
put in the DVD, fine. It resorts to the 0.8 version on the DVD.
Here is the link BTW:
I use Kpackage and it works fine. So what gives?
Label for the PC Power and Cooling 510:
INPUT: 100-240 VAC @ 10A
OUTPUT: + 5V @ 40A
+12V @ 34A
- 5V @ 0.3A
-12V @ 2.0A
+3.3V @ 30A
+5VSB @ 3.0A
So you are right, < 26A for this application. Is this out of spec for
the Opteron/Athlon FX-53 or the mobo?

We're about to start looking for a big machine (compared to the ones
that we have now).
We're thinking about something with 4 processors and 16 or 32GB RAM. Are there
any motherboards and/or configurations that we need to be careful to
they won't work with SuSE 9.2?
Any other tips on selecting a big machine? The machine will be running EDA jobs
(sometimes concurrently, but only a few at once), each reading in a
ton of data and
manipulating it in memory, then writing it back out.
I'm trying to write a .dar file to a DVD, and my K3B apparently chokes on
it. The size of the file is 4.3 GByte. Just a while ago, I wrote a 1.4
GByte file to a DVD, that went well. But every time I try to write something
that's over 2 GBytes in size ... K3B chokes, and ruines the DVD.
Any known issues? and fixes?
I am thinking about putting together an Athlon64 system at home. Does
anyone have experience with the Chaintech ZNF3-250 mobo? How is SuSE 9.2
driver support for the onboard hardware:
- nForce3 - 250 chipset
- SATA, RAID0
- 7.1 channel , 24 bit sound
- 8x AGP graphics slot
- USB 2.0, firewire
- broadcom gigabit lan
- DDR400 ram
- SD, MMC and CF card reader
Also, are there any suggestions for a graphics card that has stable 3D
driver support, that can be added through YOU? (nVidia, I presume, but
which model is good these days, with good Linux support)?
Does anybody here know why when I open a "konsole" from a remote X client,
after closing konsole, after some seconds I receive this message:
# Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
# ICE default IO error handler doing an exit(), pid = 14955, errno = 0
Nothing happens, it's just annoying to read this anytime...
I have a SuSE 9.2 running at 64 bits on a system
ASUS K8N-E Deluxe AMD 64 3400+ (chipset nVidia nforce3 250Gb)
and everythings went just fine with SuSE 9.2 as taken out of the box.
Even the network (forcedeth) and sound worked fine from the beginning.
I also have the same OS running on a Dual Opteron System (kernel with smp)
and I receive the same ugly messages...
I access both machines with ssh -X from other machines running X in 64 bits as well.
--> after exit : after some seconds it appear:
# Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
# ICE default IO error handler doing an exit(), pid = 8588, errno = 2
I've googled the message and it seems to be from pyKDE.
Is this a sort of bug of konsole ? Has someone any idea how to fix it ?

according to the Gigabyte website, this motherboard is certified to work
with the amd64's cool n quiet technology. What do I need to do to enable
Also, does the amd64 2800+ support hypertransport? according to the
suseplugger, hypertransport is listed as an unknown. I'd also like to
take advantage of this too, if the 2800+ does it.

I've noticed that in suse 9.1 quite a few times, but apart from the message
itself, I've never noticed any problems.
What exactly does server response code 200 mean (Haven't these people ever
heard of english error messages?), and what problems could it cause? (And is
this resmgr patch in YaST for 9.1 too?)
(I don't have an x86-64 machine to test it with at the moment)
