So why do I get:
SuSE Linux 9.0 (x86-64)
VERSION = 9.0
SuSE SLES-8 (AMD64)
VERSION = 8.1

I'm going to be running out and buying a DVD writer, so I'll be
looking for tools to write DVD disks. I really just need to write
lots of backup data, so write-once is ideal. But it is not clear
to me what software tools I should use, and where to find them.
Any reports from the field? Premade packages for AMD64/SLES8?
I found (via google) dvd+rw-tools-184.108.40.206.4, but there are a
lot of warnings that don't give me warm fuzzies.
I know SuSE is going DVD (witness SuSE 9 available only on DVD)
so I'm aware I need the player anyhow.

I cannot login with modem connection to my SuSE 9.0 AMD 64 from a
SuSE 8.1 system and other systems???, I don't know.
The chat-script failed. I get the login prompt and can send the
password and than fails the procedure, minicom cannot login also.
The modem devices are "/dev/ttyS0" or/and "/dev/ttyUSB0".
The way in return direction (9.0 --> 8.1) works for chat and pppd.
I tested it with setuid-bit for pppd, but no success.
If I login in a opened xterm via
$ su - ppploginname
than pppd server starts.
If I login on ASCII console (Alt-Ctrl-F1) then pppd cannot start properly.
No answer for pppd on stdout.
Has anybody the same problem?
Is there a bug in mgetty or/and pppd?
My system is.

The connection to the internet service provider works also.
The direct connect without modem I didn't test.

It's a wild guess, but the black screen with top white bar might be the result
of the pointer arithmetic warning above, especially in combination with
assembly (but I do not know the contents of the .h files). It looks like the
display contents copy is done from a more or less random memory location.
2.6 kernel: use the same driver; you might run into problems with
modversions.h. This took me far too much kernel reconfig/recompile time, but
this helped me getting to work:
I described in January how my Gigabit k8T-whatever motherboard would
hang all the time on the Linux 2.4.21 kernel that came with SuSE 9.0.
So I built my own 2.6.1 kernel, which is very stable. Sure, it doesn't
quite go with SuSE 9.0 and I had to manually configure all my devices
--- but that's better than crashing all the time.
With all the talk of 3-D graphics cards, I tried installing an nVidia
GeForce 5200 video card. It works in 2-D out of the box of course, but
the 3-D had to be downloaded from nVidia.
The nVidia driver, will compile itself for your specific kernel.
Unfortunately, the driver only works on the following kernels:
2.4.x for i386 or x86_64
2.6.x for i386 ONLY
It informed me that it didn't work for my 2.6.1 kernel.
Maybe the 2.4.21 kernel has had some bugfixes that would make it work
with my mobo. I downloaded the latest (2.4.21-209) and tried it. No
luck... it hung after about 20 minutes during a period of high disk
activity, just like in the good 'ole days before 2.6.1
I guess I'll just have to wait until the 2.6 kernel is officially
supported by SuSE 9.1, and nVidia has brought out drivers for it.

Along the same line, how do I run YOU? Is that a separate rpm?
I'm really new at this, and am just starting to learn.
thanks for any assistance.
I'm using a Asus SK8V mainboard and an opteron 146. We put 4G of RAM
into it and got the well known trouble with I/O-addresses mapped into
If a programm consume more memory as 3.5G the system froze and we have
to switch it of. Now there is a BIOS switch to remap the memory block
just below 4G and move it above. They write I could use ALL 4G when my
OS will support APE. As I don't know what APE is, I don't know want I
can expect on my< mainboard.
But beside this I even should have roughly 3.8G or 3.5G available. So I
told the kernel with mem=3800M (also tried 3.8G, 3800000M, 3.5G, etc.)
only to use the secure memory. But I only get 3G (shown by top) and also
after that my little test-programm starts swapping.
Is there anybody having an idea which can help me.
I have recently purchased a quad-opteron. The MB is a Quartet manufactured
by Celestica. The system has 8 GB of RAM (8 dimms, 2 GB per node). The
puzzling thing is that only 7.5 GB show up, both during the BIOS startup,
and by the OS (SLES 8). Playing around with the dimms, I have found that up
to 3 GB everything looks normal. Adding a fourth dimm to the system results
in an effective memory of 3.5 GB. Adding extra modules increase the count
by 1GB as expected. The dimms are good, and nothing changes by switching
dimms or populating the nodes differently. The vendor tells me that this is
a known "feature" of the AMD chipset, even for Athlons. I looked up the
thing, and found nothing. I am curious to see if this is just a problem
with the Opteron chipset, or a more general problem. 0.5 GB seems a lot to
