Yes, I did those things, but it sounds like the NIKAL kernel module just
won't work on my 64-bit system. I was hoping to get around it, but I
may be stuck. . .

We've had a problem with a tcp app communicating with an external
system. On diagnosis tcpdump is showing a chksum error on the packets
that go out that don't get received.
This is Suse 10.0 - 2.6.13-15.8-smp x86_64
The socket layer in the app, ::send and ::write, report no errors.
We've confirmed such errors as reported by tcpdump are occurring
reasonably frequently without too much consequence on intel e1000,
intel e100, broadcom, nvidia ck804. (tyan, shuttle and iwill
mainboards). Problem has been hidden we think as the apps seem to
recover or not loose the pkts. The only discernable difference is
there is a firewall on the route between the systems where the packets
don't get through, but we're grasping at straws.
We can duplicate the error conditions with scp and telnet (if the
chksum error is real).
We are seeing no problems with a couple of systems on their pci card
based realtek 8169 cards. Same systems have issues with their
Smells like a problem. It could be tcpdump / libpcap misreporting but
the lost packets indicate a problem. We don't lose packets that have
a good chksum but we do occaisonally see packets survive that are
marked as bad chksum...
On similar hardware CentOS 4.2 with 2.6.9-22.ELsmp doesn't report
similar errors. Just installed the same CentOS on a system reporting
the errors and it no longer has such errors.
We saw some notes about issues with APIC with various adaptors, tried
booting with no apic and same errors.
I have a strange problem with my smp-system.
Hardware config: Tyan s2895 mobo, 2x Opteron 270 Dual-Core CPU, 16GB ECC Reg. RAM
We use this Workstation for CFD-Analyses. When I start 4 Jobs on 4 CPUs, at least 2 jobs die (segmentation fault). One job works fine. A parallel run using mpich as MPI aborts (Error message says that it has recieved a SIGABORT signal form a CPU / SIGSEGV). The strage thing: If I remove 8GB of RAM, the system works stable. Neither an update from Suse 9 to Suse 10 nor a manual compiled kernel with the current stable version helped. A memtest86+ showed no errors (running 5 days), so I think that a bad RAM module is not hte reason. Furthermore, a cpu-stress test with cpuburn-in worked well (24 hours running without any errors). Might be a problem with the memory managment?
Any hints how I can resolve my problem?
We are still running an old version of SuSE SLES 8/x86_64. Recently,
we found that Oracle update to 10g we're trying to install needed a
more recent version. This system hasn't been updated for over a year,
and I need to know if the update procedure is still the same:
Bring up YOU
Let it connect to the download site (http://sdb2.suse.de/download)
Log in and let it do an automatic update
It downloads and installs an update for Yast2 update utility, and the
utility crashes. Now when I try to do the complete install, it fails
at the log-in, everytime. It's as if the upgrade to Yast2 broke it.
The log-in screen shows the same username and password as what had worked
before, but I keep getting log-in failures.
Is there a config file that Yast uses to do its things, like logging me
into the download site? I need to undo what the upgrade process did,
and try to do a manual update of everything else.
Also, is there a way to manually download the update files, install them,
without using the Yast2 GUI?
I was checking the performance of numademo stream test on a system I have
stumbled upon (Iwill H8501 8way 8-GB in 16 512MB dimms).
The results were pretty low (around 1600MB/s on all tests), so I proceeded
to check weather node interleaving was disabled in the BIOS. Everything was
set up with factory defaults (node interleave OFF, bank interleaving ON).
Checking the kernel log (SuSE w kernel 2.6.13-15.8-smp x86_64), I found
SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 1 PXM 1 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 2 PXM 2 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 3 PXM 3 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 4 PXM 4 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 5 PXM 5 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 6 PXM 6 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: Node 7 PXM 7 0-ffffffffffffffff
SRAT: pxm 0 overlap 0-9fc00 with node 1(0-ffffffffffffffff)
SRAT: SRAT not used.
I'm no expert, but I guess that means it assigns all memory, from byte 0
till 2^64 to each node. Not surprisingly acpi_numa_memory_affinity_init in
srat.c finds it to overlap and proceeds to ignore the information.
The question is: is this the problem (we also experience random crashes when
running a 2GB+ simulation) causing low memory performance? How can I solve
I can provide logs and do tests as requested.

Although you say you did not update any kde packages, it seems related to the last kde update, more precisely kdebase3-kdm 3.5.1-27...
Please check if you recently installed this update...
There is a solution posted in suse-linux-e list.
Suddently i can't boot in my system. I haven't changed
or ypgraded anything.
I am not sure what's wrong but during boot if i press
ctrl+alt+f10 i see messages like these
linux kernel: ACPI-0283: *** Warning: Error evaluating
Try change /etc/sysconfig/powersave/cpufreq into
I can't boot if suring grub menu i press f2

I tried changimg wthe cpufreq like the message said
(using rescue system) but no lack.
I also tried forcing reinstall the kernel from the
cd's (also using update system etc), but also no lack.

I need to install a network attached storage, preferable the storage drive
connected to Linksys Network Link (model NSLU2).
I use SuSE 9.3 (professional or workstation version). I am already using a
network attached printer. However, I have no idea about how to make a network
attached storage work in SuSE9.3.
I will therefore appreciate it if some one could advise me how to do this.

It appears there is a bug with the initial SuSe 9.3/10 kernel's. It is
related to the AMD Opteron dual-core processors. When it tries to
initialize the CPU's it kernel panic's and locks up the machine. I had
to install some Opteron 250 single core's, do the install, and update
the kernel to the latest. Then re-install the dual-core CPU's to make
use of them.
Hardware configuration is as follows:
2 - 280 Opteron's
8 - 2GB DDR400
1 - LSI MegaRaid 320-2e
Is there a new ISO or boot CD that is available with the latest kernel
or even a kernel that works with these CPU's? Or is there documentation
on how to make my own with the latest kernel? We use SuSe 9.3 on all our
server's and have our software ported/tested specifically for the lib's
on this version.
I have recently installed Suse Linux 10.0 OOS (x68_64) and but the release
notes stated that "this version ships with a Novell Apparmor". This is a 5
CD version of SL-10.0. Has anybody faced a similar problem?
I was quite surprised to see that these packages are not included.
Also found out by googleing that the Apparmor rpms are named as (but could
not find either of these through Yast/Control Center -> Software Management
-> RPM search).
Eagerly waiting to install and test how apparmor works. Please do let me
know where I could these rpm's?
