Hi all. I have Suse 9.3 Pro for 64bit.
I want to upgrade my OpenOffice version via Yast/You.
I select the Gwdg.de mirror, but yast/you does not found the news
version of OpenOffice in the repositery, but the new files exists:
[ ] OpenOffice_org-1.9.110-1.2.i586.patch.rpm 21-Jul-2005
[ ] OpenOffice_org-1.9.110-1.2.i586.rpm 21-Jul-2005

[ ] OpenOffice_org-Quickstarter-1.0-471.2.i586.patc..> 21-Jul-2005
Why Yast does not found the new version ?
I have not the new version installed into my machine:
#rpm -qa | grep OpenOffice
Please, help me.
I'm using SuSE professional 9.3 on a AMD64.
To be able to watch DVD's, I compiled Xine from sources with the
Compiling xine-lib and xine-ui doesn't make any problems, but
after launching xine, I have the foolowing error message:
Cannot open display "*".
After I changed the DISPLAY Variable to 127.0.0.1 and exported it, the first
error message doesn't appear, but I get the segfault again.
The interesting thing is that DVD's could be read in
kaffeine without problems, so I think the problem is in
Has anybody a hint??
Sorry for the short announcement.
We have now launched openSUSE and released SUSE Linux 10.0 OSS Beta1
to the public. We support as usual 64-bit x86-64 (AMD64 and EM64T)
and 32-bit x86 systems.
All ISOs and FTP trees have been synced out. The ISOs do not contain sources,
they are only part of the FTP tree inside the "inst-source" directory.
Please note that the OSS edition of SUSE Linux 10.0 do only contain open
source software. Therefore java and depending packages are missing atm. This
does also include OpenOffice.org for now. We do definitively not want to lock
out the open source Java community, so we decided to offer these with an
extra YaST installation source on our server ("inst-source-java" directory).
OpenOffice.org does live there also. This package repository can be added in
the YaST "Installation Source" manager as additionally source.
General download instructions and mirrors can get found on this page
Have fun and keep in mind to read the "most annoying bugs" page before your

I just purchased what looked like a very neat mouse for my laptop. The logitech V500 looked to be what I would like in
a mouse for my laptop. However, I could not get Suse Linux 9.3 Pro to recognise the device.

The usb port sees the device and reports it as a logitech receiver, but I cannot get the mouse to work. Is this a
known issue or do I need to return the mouse?

When playing with a dual Opteron box with a large RAID5 (6 TB) attached I
noticed a couple of very strange things with fdisk. Distro is SL93 on the
latest YOU level.
When a volume (say, /dev/sdb) is larger than 2 TB fdisk does not allow me
to create partitions bigger than 1.2 TB, and it does not allow me to assign
the remaining space to more partitions. When the volume is smaller, I can
assign the whole volume to a single partition (e.g. 1.4 TB).
Maybe 64 Bit LBA is the bad guy. We tried two SATA RAID Adapters:
- Areco ARC-1160. This one allows you to create volumes smaller than 2 GB
with standard LBA (32 Bit), > 2 TB with 64 Bit LBA, and a mode "For
Windows" whatever this means.
- 3ware 9500S 8mi. Ths controller does not allow you to create volumes at
all, you get always the entire RAID as a volume. Very spartanic if you
What's going on here?
Workers of the world, arise! You have nothing to lose but your
I believe what you need is in Yast, under one of the modem
setup screens. It is probably written in one of the wvdial
configuration files, but Yast should be the easiest way.
Here is the page from the manual:

First, thanks to all who offered assistance with my logout hell problem!
I now have things configured correctly.and log out works as it should.
Now for the question/s du jour:
How can I get KInternet to stop disconnecting my modem about every five
to ten minutes?
Also, I've read that wvdial is a better program. YAST shows that I have
wvdial installed but I can't find it. It isn't listed under Internet>
dial up on my main menu as KInternet is. Where should I look for this
program (wvdial)? Any other suggestions are, of course, most welcome.
I have the same problem (after rebooting!), but with a i386 system.
alsaconf and recompilation of alsa-drivers and alsa-utils didn't help at all.
The only thing which helped immediately was a downgrade to
linux-18.104.22.168-20a. Sound works after reboot!

I have a dual Opteron 254 (2.4 GHz) machine with Tyan Thunder K8W (S2885
ANRF). The BIOS is AMIBIOS version V2-05 build The original operating system
was SuSE 9.3 with Linux version 22.214.171.124-21.7-smp (geeko@buildhost) (gcc
version 3.3.5 20050117 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)) #1 SMP Thu Jun 2 14:23:14
Because of the security alert from SuSE watcher I upgraded the SuSE 9.3 kernel
from 126.96.36.199-21.7 to 188.8.131.52-21.8. Unfortunately, after the upgrade I lost
sound capability. There is no sound. The Hardware Info created by YAST
detects Tyan AMD-8111 AC97 Audio and gives the following information:
I/O Ports: 0xc800-0xc8ff (rw)
I/O Ports: 0xcc00-0xcc3f (rw)
IRQ: 10 (no events)
Driver Info #0:
Driver Status: i810_audio is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe i810_audio"
Driver Info #1:
Driver Status: snd-intel8x0 is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe snd-intel8x0"
Config Status: cfg=yes, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
Since the Hardware info says that the the i810_audio & snd-intel8x0 are not
activeI tried to use YAST to correct this situation. When I did YAST -> sound
"The number of currently running cards does not match the number of configured
cards in your configuration profile. Try to restart sound system?" It gives
me the option to restart the sound system.
Then I selected "Yes". Then there is the reconfirmation that AMD-8111 AC97
Audio is not running. I then request addind AMD811 again. Then I get this
The kernel module snd-intel 8x0 for sound support could not be loaded. This
can be caused by incorrect module parameters including invalid IQ or IRQ
I tried to restart sound using Control Center -> sound. But that too does not
Please by suggesting what I should do to get the kernel module snd-intel 8x0
loaded and to regain the sound.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
