I am using the SuSE 7.1 Linux with a Power Mac G3, 128 MB Ram, BootX
If I boot into the 2.2.18 Kernel the VGA mode is OK ( like I am used from
the MAC side ( 1024*768).
If I use the 2.4.2 Kernel ( compiled by myself or the one from the SuSE
CD) the VGA mode is wrong ( 640*480).
I tried to use the More Kernel argument option on BootX Version 1.2b3
"vga=extended" but there is no reaction.
Does anybody have an idea how to set the video mode in the kernel? I
somehow got stuck with the SAX2 programm. I dont know if this is the
Thanks for your help.
Attached is the patch that fixes support for the Lite-On PNIC_II for the
tulip driver on my machine for kernels 2.4.X.
So if you are using a NIC that includes the Lite-ON PNIC_II (LC82C115)
please give this a try. This includes some AsanteFast 10/100 cards that
run under both Mac OSX and PPC Linux. Specifically the AsanteFast 10/100
with Part Number: 61-20590-01 uses this chip and this is the card all
testing was done for.
Special thanks to Jeff Garzik for answering some questions and providing
the PNIC_II datasheet and the datasheet of the Intel/DEC 21143 which it is
similar to. Without those docs, I would have been lost for sure.
NOTE: This patch is just being submitted with this e-mail and therefore
has *NOT* yet been accepted by Jeff (the official tulip driver maintainer)
but it works fine for me and hopefully for others who are having troubles
with some AsanteFast 10/100 NIC cards. But there are no guarantees.
Hope this helps.

I installed the XFree86 4.1.0 from the RPMs I got from ftp.suse.com. The
upgrade is OK, but when I run XFree86 -configure I get a lot of
"unresolved symbols" (see attached output).
The system is a G4/733MHz with kernel 2.4.12 (compiled with the .config
from the SuSE 2.4.2 kernel).
The graphics card is the original NVidia card that comes with the computer
(I am working to get a supported ATI card).
Thanks for any help,
PS: The install went without problems after I circumvented some yast bugs
(PC-fdisk instead of pdisk ...) and manually installed yaboot.
PPS: It's a pity SuSE doesn't list this computer as supported (without
graphics card) since it works all very well (and the 2.4.12 kernel does
recognize the NIC unlike the 2.4.2 kernel).
PPPS: Of course we only want to use the computer for compiling things and
running them, not really as a desktop workstation :-)

occasionally when I shutdown linux the halt process hangs right after
the "turning off swap" message appears.. the process just stops there
with a blinking cursor. This does not happen all the time though I
can't see any particular pattern occuring.
I'm using Suse 7.0 ppc on a blue & white G3.

OK, got 7.1 all installed, but with one thing I cannot solve: how on
earth do I get the keys to map correctly?

While messing around in OS9 I found a function called Macintosh Manager in
the Multiple Users section.
It seems that this can link the workstation to a "Domain Controller (Sorry
NT Speak)" and able to authenticate to it
It also seems that the only way use this is with Appleshare IP or OS X
can this be emulated with Linux, or even running OS 9?
Any help would be much appreciated
I build and installed the 2.4.12 kernel on my feb 2001 iMac. my modem is
working now. I also build Xfree86-drm for ATI rage 128 but that crashes
with a signal 11. I found however on the Suse ftp site Xfree86 4.1
What version do I need to download, and will it support the Rage 128 ultra?
I note that on the SuSE site
(http://www.suse.com/us/support/mailinglists/index.html) there appears to be
no mechanism to search an archive for a list, such as this one. Have I

I have been struggling too long on this. I have an Apple
PowerPC 8550 Workgroup Server (604 processor - beige case).
The (built-in to kernel?) MACE driver for the onboard ethernet
works under 2.2.18, and that's all. It doesn't seem to be in the
standard 2.4.2 kernel??
I can't get a driver to work for the D-Link with either 2.2.18 or
2.4.2. I have downloaded software drivers directly from D-Link as well
as tried to use the latest drivers from sylid or whatever.
I just want to get this box up and use it for some simple firewall/
Sheeh!! Please help.
Thanks in advance,
