Just to bring you up to speed, I'm running SuSE 9.3
professional in 64-bit mode on an AMD 64 laptop. Recently I was
experiencing problems with YaST (Yet another System Tool) as I couldn't
install additional software packages. YaST couldn't 'see' the DVD and

Yes ... just going through your experiences here with a 64 bit PC.
My only remark to this is:
SuSE .... that's a bummer .... to be fixed in a hurry
This file ( /media.1/media ) contains

make and model of the software (SuSE 9.3, DVD 1). Somehow this file was
corrupted on the laptop and this was preventing YaST from 'seeing' the
DVD. However, after a clean install, everything worked. So, I assumed
that the problem was with the YaST update packages and, on the next
update, I avoided all of the YaST patches only to have the problem
re-surface on the next reboot.
After reading my posts, another user suggested I attempt
another upgrade but not to upgrade the Linux kernel. This seems to have
solved the problem. I did a fresh install - everything worked. I even
used YaST's 'Check Media' program on the DVD - it got a clean bill of
health. I then did an upgrade but I DID NOT upgrade the LINUX KERNEL.
Well, after the upgrade and a re-boot - everything is working
correctly. And YaST's Media Check gave the DVD another clean bill of
So, there must be some sort of incompatibility problem
between my machine and the kernel upgrade. Hope this helps. In
closing, I would like to thank all of you who helped to solve this
problem. It was a dilly.
