I "discovered" some strange behavior of yast2 / qt assistant :
First, I start yast2 while qt assistant is running. Everything is normal.
Then, I click on "Software installieren/löschen" (= "Install/delete
Now, yast2 starts to permanently redisplay itself (the window flickers). While
I can still use yast2, install some packages or just exit, assitant freezes.
Until I kill assitant, system load is something like this :
assistant uses about 56% CPU
y2controlcenter uses about 22% CPU
X is using 6% to 20%
If I exit yast2 without killing assistant, assistant starts to use 99% of CPU.
This, yast2 and assistant, is the only case I know this happens.
I'm using SuSE 8.0 (all updates), kde 3.0.4.
Has anybody else seen something like this ?
Does anybody have an idea how to do this? I tried
compiling the sources (the ones that came with SuSE 8.0
Pro) specifying --prefix=/opt/kde3, and it replaced the
default KDE, but it screwed up all the SuSE customizations,
like the menu, and the Yast2 button on the panel.
I also compiled the kde-addon packages from the SuSE CD,
but this didn't help.
I also tried compiling the sources from www.kde.org,
specifying --prefix=/opt/kde-3.0.4 and editing the relivant
variables (I made a new user to try it out). Now KDE loads
fine, and where, for example, the Yas2 menu icon should
have been, is just a folder icon. Same goes for the other
SuSE-KDE addons. It does run much faster though, which is
why I want to do this. If I can get this right, I can
upgrade my system to KDE 3.1 when that comes out. SuSE's
KDE rpms I've tried (3.0.4 and 3.1 beta 2) mess up a little
too, so that's not really an option.
I'd like to compile without messing this up. Any ideas?

Following update by YOU of Kdelibs to 3.0.5 (KDE Security fixes from
KDE 3.0.5) yesterday, today YOU is show dependency conflicts in that
"kdelibs3-devel requires kdelibs3 = 3.0.4" but YOU has updated
kdelibs3 to 3.0.5. So was kdelibs-devel missing from the YOU
Habe endlich 8.1 installiert und ein kleines Problem mit "audiocd:/"
Folgendes Anliegen: Wenn ich unter 8.0 eine Audio-CD in ein Laufwerk gelegt
hatte und dann das Icon auf dem Desktop anklickte, ging ein Konqueror Fenster
mit dem Inhalt und auch MP3 bzw. Ogg Vorbis Dateien auf.
Jetzt kommt das nur immer der CD Spieler (den ich nicht will).
1. Wo kann man einstellen, das dies nicht passiert, sondern wieder der
Konqueror aufgerufen wird?
2. Wenn ich als root "audiocd:/" als URL eingeben bekomme ich diese CD
angezeigt. Als normaler Nutzer geht das nicht. Ich habe überprüft ob ich
Mitglied der Gruppe "disk" bin: ist der Fall. Das Zahnrad dreht sich ohne
Ende, aber es kommt keine Fehlermeldung, etc. Selbst wenn ich als Mitglied
der Grupp "root" erfasst bin, funktioniert das nicht. Woran könnte das
Just got my new 8.1 running and again there are some probs:
When clicking the CD-ROM icon, KsCD is started "offering" me to play the CD.
But under 8.0 a normal Konqueror poped up and show the "audiocd:/" content
of the CD.
This works only as root and only when typing "audiocd:/" as an URL, not by
clicking the CD-ROM icon.
When typing the "audiocd:/"-URL as a normal user, Konqueror does nothing. No
error-message is given. The user is member of the "disk"-group.
Any suggestions what to do? Thanks!
The little kicker applet KWeather is running on my machine; it thinks it
knows where to get the weather due to an initial failed configuration, but
it is wrong. Now I can't see how to get back the configuration set-up
(which weather server, etc.) and I can't find a config file anywhere.

I just upgraded to SuSE 8.1 (from 8.0) and to KDE 3.0.4. After this Konqueror
have seemingly lost the samba-client, i.e. when I try to browse anything
bbeginning with "smb:", konqueror says "unknown protocol". (That is after I
disabled "Internet search", before this an smb-url made Konqueror try to look
it up at realnames.com....
How can I get the samba-client back in Konqueror?

I'm trying to find the ksnapshot utility. Has SuSE wiped it from the
distribution or is it hidden in some obscure RPM?
I managed to find kpackage and a few other utilities I use. Boy what a mess
compared with SuSE 8.0 KDE packaging.
BTW - This is a fresh install of SuSE 8.1 with all updates applied.
since my last online update I can't use "help / report bugs..." any longer.
After pushing the wizard link nothings happens.
Abstaining from that, I guess KDEs change to bugzilla might break the use of
this feature, because the wizard has another URL, and one has to login by
entering his account information.
Is there any possibility to get back that helping semiautomatic feature?
I hope this is the right group for posting this question. After
installing SuSE 8.0
on several computers, I have noticed a difference in appearance of Konqueror
file manager background. On a few computers I see the right hand pane
with a background of alternating white and light blue lines like the
paper. The rest of the computers show a background of very close stripes.
I really like the background that looks like computer paper but I don't know
how to get it. I looked at the View, Background Image but don't see any
option that looks like the computer paper. Am I looking in the wrong place?
I have SUSE 8.0 on Athlon 1600 xp, 256 MB ram,
Matrox G550. I have two problems:
1) Sometimes it takes very long time (even 2 min.)
for kde to start after startx command, both as root
or normal user.
2) When I issue the command to exit kde to go
back to the command line the screen turns black,
the hard disk stop and everything seems to be dead
(no response to ctrl-alt-bksp either). I have to reset.
Any idea ? Thanks a lot. Riccardo, Italy.
