Don't have a rtl8139, but I do have a Intel EtherExpress Pro 100+ on an
Apple G3/233 that used to work with kernel 2.2.14 but stopped (actually
freeze the machine during startup, upon eth1 initialization) with kernel
2.2.18-0 (k_pmac-2.2.18-0.ppc.rpm ) and 2.2.18-14
(k_pmac-2.2.18-14.ppc.rpm). And yes, I also installed the updated
devs.rpm and modutils.rpm.
To get the computer up and running again, I had to download/install
netdrivers-2.1.6 from www.scyld.com (and the 2.2.18 kernel sources,
otherwise netdrivers wouldn't compile).
The NIC now seems to work OK, even if depmod -a gives unresolved symbols
in all netdrivers modules (and a few more, for that matter...). The
strange thing is that I didn't need to do all this work for the Apple
10/100 card (Digital chip): the updated kernel/modules (tulip) see and
control this card without a hitch.
Sorry Roman if this is not relevant to you!

have dokumentation but have yet to install linux. plan
is to install on 8500/180.
presently have 64 mb. is this sufficient or problematic+?
dokumentation claims is sufficient but would like to know
from users presently.
apolgize for simplicity of question but ram for 8500 much
more than kurrent ppc models.
I tried sax2 with -f and -af. Sax2 runs, but the only choice I get when
adjusting the modes is 640x480, no matter what I chose in the settings
xsfbswitch won't even start.

Did you start sax2 with -f?

I'm having a hard time trying to get the X server running on my IBM pSeries
The machine's using the Matrox G200 SD (IBM: GXT 130), but no matter what I
try, I always get the standard resolution of 640x480.
I installed SuSE 7.1 (running 2.4.2 POWER3 kernel) from scratch using Yast1
because of the RPM bug of Yast2.
Neither sax2 nor xsfbswitch are working for me, and for the Matrox card,
there is no kernel option (like for the ATI cards: video=atyfb ...)
I tried modifying the XF86Config, but even if the only resolution given is
different from 640x480, startx defaults to that.
The G200 should run at 1024x768 (with 8 bit depth), since it has 2MB
Any hints, suggestions, success stories?
Thanks in advance
Anybody got video mirroring to work with MOL. I have a G4 TiBook and
am runningSuSE 7.1.

The box said 'Requires Windows 95, or better.' So I bought a Macintosh.

I know, It's running fine at the moment. XFree86 4.0.2 is not working
as you said (256 color framebuffer srv is).
I hope the next XFree86 version supports the Rage128 Ultra, should
be not much difference with the Rage128 pro. May be it's just a
detection problem (SaX2 says it doens't know the device ID when I
try to install ATI Rage128 srv)
I also have some modem problems, Yast2 says it detected an unkown
modem device which it seems to be able to use. I have to try tough.

Ich habe hier: PowerMac G4 mit NVidia Graphik-Karte, DVD-Brenner.
Linux läuft mit beiden Kernel 2.2.18 und 2.4.2.
Netzwerk läuft (Zugriff auf Linux-Server mit AppleShare).
Graphik-Karte macht Probleme:
Graphik wird dargestellt, X11R3 und X11R4 funktionieren mit
fb-Device Arbeiten mit KDE ist möglich, aber sehr unangenehm,
da die Graphikkarte mit 24-Bit Farbtiefe arbeitet, der fb
aber mit 8-Bit. Das führt zu zimlich unangenehmen
Farbkombinationen mit teilweise schwarzer/blauer/grüner
Schrift auf schwarzem/blauem/günem Grund. ;-)
MOL funktioniert ebenfalls, es ist aber zimlich kompliziert an
das 'Mac ROM' heranzukommen, da HFS-Plus verwendet wird. D.h.:
die hfsutils helfen nicht mehr viel. Rom auf Netz stellen und
unter Linux dann wieder zurückkopieren in das entsprechende
Verzeichnis geht aber.
IBM-TR-Karte (IBM PCI-Family TR (Olympic)) funktioniert
ebenfalls (große Überraschung --- für MacOS gibt es für diese
Karte keinen Treiber!).
Bei NVIDIA gibt es leider ebenfalls bisher keine Treiber für
Linux auf PPC. Eine entsprechende Anfrage wurde negativ
beschieden. O-Ton: "...dafür gibt es noch keinen Markt ..."
--- komisch nur, das fast alle neuen Mac mit NVIDIA ausgestattet
werden. Fragt sich was NVIDIA den noch mehr haben will oder
wieder mal 'Marketing'. Dann gehören sie eingesargt, die
Marketing-Strategen bei NVIDIA!
I just bought Suse Linux 7.1 PowerPC Edition and read in
the manual my Mac is not supported because of new firmware.
(I have a february 2001 iMac)
(on the box it is stated it *might* not be supported)
Does somebody know what this means? Will it not work at all
or will it work most of the time but you can't get support
if something is not working.
If it will not work at all, will it be supported soon (and how,
can I get a new first Suse CD to boot with a new kernel or something?)
Running it on a triple booting Lombard 333MHz (OS 9, OSX, Suse 7.0).
I've read up alot of Red Hat/ PC based security how toos but still
having problems figuring out if I've actually nailed down the holes.
There is just enough difference in where specific config files are
loacted to get a newbie like me lost.
My security goals
1. Removal of all server/remote access related functions. Its strictly a
portable workstation.I want to lock down ftp access to be done only be
sitting at the machine.
2. The only exceptions are of course email, web access and SSH. (SSH
will only be used to access other machines FROM the lap top. It should
not accept any SSH remote connections
3. Set up a firewall (Thinking of starting with PMfirewall). Got gobs of
info on this.
I'm also looking for a site like www.grc.com that does portscans etc..
of linux systems and gives a security profile. (grc.com described my
machines as ultra secure with a non sured installed which makes me thing
that it works only for windows machines.
Right not all I'm looking for is suse ppc spesific tips on securing the
what config files should I use to remove service I don't want and where
they are located.
Anybody has succeeded with the subj ?
How realistic is this combo in terms of serving me no vice versa?
I tried to get OpenBSD running it, but it was too much of a grief.
Thanks for any pointers.
