Has anyone tried out SuSE 7.3 yet? I am having problems installing the
professional version. At the end of the install routine it does its normal
thing of reboot to enable the install before configuring, but with this
version it locks up completely and needs resetting to go any further. I
have only tried it on the one PC so far. It is a brand new P3-866 with
512M RAM, an IDE hard drive, and an ATI graphics card? I expect I can get
around it manually, but it is annoying and I would like to know if it is
likely to be anything I am doing.

Read the post again. It was supposed to be a "It's no
hassle to delete a mail. Don't worry about it!".
I think you got the wrong end of the stick mate. Sorry
if it backfired - I was indirect support.

I was trying to point out that it's causing me little
(or no) hassle. Sort of 'Don't worry about it
Michael'. Read the post again.
Perhaps that backfired.

Has anyone any idea why posts I make to this list sometimes appear
twice, with occasionally an hour or so between them?
I'm certainly not sending them twice, and I don't see this behaviour
with any of the many other lists I subscribe to.

Strangely enough the double postings don't appear on my machine - and I'm
using the original MS Mail reader.
Perhaps its a MS thing?

Tried the "check if xdm ....." commands on the server and got the same grey
x windows with nothing on it apart form the cursor X.
Under etc/X11 there is just the SUSE window manager. Is XDM then a package I
just nned to install from the CDs?

my understanding is that because this was not a new contract - it was
basically the re-wording and consiladation of many existing contracts - it
didn't have to go to tender.

The difference is that Sun is not a monopoly, nor have they been found
guilty (more than once) of breaking the law. The simple fact is that
Microsoft is a quite nasty organisation, who at some time in the
past appear to have become something more akin to gangsters and terrorists
than an honest business.
You also appear to be missing the point that tendering rules may well
have been ignored or a tender may have been put together in such a way
as to exclude all bar one supplier.

I've currently set up a machine (RH 7.1 sorry!) to be both an extra file
server and intranet server. To get content up on the intranet I'm using FTP
through both Leech FTP and Dreamweaver. However I'm currently experiencing a
massive time delay when trying to initiate the FTP session (likewise with
Telnet; server is using WU-FTPD), once in it's fine. This would be ok for
myself but in the future we will be running web development courses and I
require this server to be used by students and a delay of this length would
be unacceptable. The HTTP service however (apache) is running instantly and
serves everythin as soon as you request it.
The machine I'm using was orginally an NT server and suffered no problems at
all with any type of time delay. It has 256Mb RAM, Intel Fast Ethernet NIC,
gallons of disk space (RAID 5 array) and a 750 AMD processor. It's plugged
into a fast Ethernet switch and even if you're on the same switch as it you
still suffer the delay.
Any help would be gratefully received.

For the attention of anyone who has previously downloaded our
Cygwin/XFree86 package, or anyone who wants to experiment with running
Linux thin-client sessions from Windows workstations without having to
play around with dual-booting or network-booting:
A new version of CygXF86 is available from
CygXF86 allows you to run a Linux thin-client session (i.e. an X-Windows
session) within Windows. If you download the zip file and follow the very
simple installation instructions, then you will get a "Cygwin" icon on
your desktop. Double-clicking this icon will start up an X server and
connect to a Linux application server on the network. You can use this
(almost) as though it were a native Linux terminal, but you can switch
between Windows and Linux just by pressing Alt-Tab.
The licences are (AFAICR) a mixture of GPL/LGPL and X11, so it's all
properly free software including the bits we've written (which are GPL).
This package is similar to what you will get by downloading Cygwin and
Cygwin/XFree86 directly from cygwin.com, except that:
1) It will take up a lot less disk space and will be faster to download.
2) It will automatically determine your screen size and colour depth.
This should now work under 95/98/Me and NT/2K.
3) It will not be confused by any dial-up interfaces you may have.
4) It is only suitable for use as a thin-client terminal. It doesn't
include anything else from the Cygwin distribution such as bash, gcc
etc. This is the reason for (1).
This is a beta-release. Please send any bug reports and/or patches to me.
Please note the requirements: you do need a working Linux server that will
respond to XDMCP broadcasts. You can test this from any Linux box by
logging on as root and running "/usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 -broadcast". If you
get a GUI login screen appearing, then all's well.
The .zip file is approximately 18MB. You can check that you downloaded it
correctly by using md5sum - you should get:
$ md5sum CygXF86.zip
Ideal for anyone who wants to sneak a Linux thin-client server into their
school network - now you can give everyone the ability to run Linux
thin-client sessions without having to disrupt the Windows workstations!
