I installed Suse Linux 10.1 but when I re-start after the initial
installation I get an error saying:
This is not a software error
It happens when the system is loading fan and thermal of my harddisk, a
123,5GB U100 IC35V2 8MB drive. I tried several settings in the BIOS for
DMA but nothing works: the error keeps coming.
I can start the installed OS when I type as options: IDE=NODMA. Then
there is no problem, except for the speed which turns my AMD 64 3400+
into a pentium 1.
I would like to use my 2 WD 200GB SATA drives which are connected in a
software RAID 0 configuration, but since I have no working driver for
them I have to use my IDE drive. Does anybody have a driver for the ULi
Who has an answer for either question/problem?
as i postet before in may i get now again an error from powernow-k8.
This is the output of dmesg:
powernow-k8: Found 1 AMD Athlon 64 / Opteron processors (version 1.60.2)

This error appeared again after i installed the latest updates from
Suse, kernel and powersaved.
Before the update the problem seems to have been solved, i got the messages:

It's in the ivman package.
I installed Suse 10.1 and I don't get any sound in skype. I get an error
read error, res = -1 , handle = -1
and on the /var/log/messages:
May 22 17:01:50 laptopAir kernel: ALSA sound/core/pcm_lib.c:2534:
capture read error (DMA or IRQ trouble?)
Does somebody have a clue on how to fix this ?
There seems to be a problem with the ac97 microphone input. I tried two
different microphones (one active, one passive) with two different ac97
cards (one ATI RS48x, the other NForce4), and all combinations produce
a high-pitched whistle.
The same microphones on a Creative SoundBlaster E10K sound perfectly
I hadn't problems with the passive microphone on SuSE 10.0 with NForce4,
but didn't try other combinations back then.

I've made a fresh installation of SuSE 10.1 on a brand new Dell Precision 490.
When I connect a usb disk, or insert a dvd etc, I can access them in
konqueror using media:/, but I do not get the usual popups, i.e. launching of
As far as I can see, the popups are enabled in the Control Centre
(Peripherals->Storage). Under the "advanced", tab everything is enabled,
including "Automatic launch..."

I'm running SuSE 10.1 with the latest updates on Opteron 148, ASUS SK8N with
nForce3 and 2x 512MB Super Talent DDR333 Registered ECC. I'm experiencing
hangups - everything freezes and nothing can be done. I think it may be a
hardware problem, because yesterday there were several thunderstorms, but I'm
not aware where to look and what to look for in order to identify it.
What have I done:
- memtest says nothing for half an hour; may be I should let it work more
- mcelog says nothing;
- /var/log/messages has nothing suspicious;
Any help will be appreciated.
I'm on SuSE 10.0 and I've got my music on an external hard drive. I use
Amarok to play it. Lately amarok has been stopping after a few songs have
been played and when I investigate why it has stopped I find that my drive is
no longer mounted and I can't get it remounted.
ken@saturn>sudo mount /dev/sda1 /music
mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist
... and the only way that I can find to fix the problem is to reboot the
machine. So a) How do I stop this from happening and b) Are there any
services that I can restart that will remedy this without having to reboot
In addition, I've been having routine problems with the sound driver alsa and
often have to restart it. But when I try to restart after this problem
occurs I get the following set of errors...
ken@saturn> sudo /usr/sbin/rcalsasound restart

The problem really manifests itself when I can't mount my backup drive either
to backup my system because of course I can't mount any external drives once
the error occurs (again until I reboot the system).
Thanks for any assistance you can give.
