When trying to mount my zip drive I receive the following message:
mount: fs type -hfs not supported by kernel
I went to the support database which directed me to the following URL:
which had the following message:
Since late in the 2.1.x series of kernels, the HFS module has been
part of the main Linux kernel distribution. You should not need
to download any of the software on this page unless you have an
exceptionally old Linux kernel.
Anyone have any suggestions?
On the off chance that anybody else tried this - did anybody get
LBreakout to compile and run on a Suse 7.0?
I found this game on my work machine (A Mandrake/Pentium) and
reasoned that anything that works on Mandrake/Pentium should work on
SuSE/PPC. So I tried to compile it at home, and it compiled well, but
refuses to run. I tried configuring it without sound, but it didn't
I saw that there is an RPM of it for SuSE 7.1. Question is - if I
tried to install the 7.1 RPM, will it work? Does it rely on anything
that's only in 7.1? Or should I stick to the source version and just
tweak my 7.0, or tweak the source?
Thanks in advance,

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to emulate a three buttons
mouse. On Darwin all it required was adding an option of -fakebuttons
whenever starting x, but x starts automatically on my machine.
I am used to installing SuSE on x86, but I got an iMac because my PC
quit. I am having problems with SuSE PPC. I install SuSE 7.0 on an iMac
DVSE. It installs fine, but I shutdown or restart, and I find myself
presented with a blank, gray screen, and so I re-install, as if it didn't
What do I do. Someone on the Debian PPC mailing list says SuSE doesn't
know how to make a bootloader, but that's what I expect from another
I like SuSE, and want 7.0 because I like all the packages. Please don't
tell me to upgrade to 7.1 as I haven't got 7.0 to work, and shouldn't
upgrade in case it is SuSE's bootloader. But, I had Debian and had to do
like, ofpath /dev/hda and then mkofboot commands. So, how do I get SuSE to
stick. I would really appriciate ALL help, so I can mess with this Distro.
I have an ATI Rage, and want to do some cool 3D things on SuSE, like POV Ray
and the SSystem program. I heard they are really nifty.
i'm trying to boot into the SuSe installer from a PPC 9500 running macOS
9.1 without success.
(kernel panic or machine check)
Here is my setup :
2 disks attached to this machine :
macos 9.1 on HFS+ partition 6 (10go)
boot on HFS partition 7 (300mo)
Apple_Free Extra partition 7 ( 10.5G) >>UNUSED<<
Apple_UNIX_SVR2 swap partition 9 (128.0M)
Apple_UNIX_SVR2 root partition 10 ( 10.5G)
Apple_UNIX_SVR2 A/UX Root partition 11 ( 10.7G)
dd2 (backup disk)
macos 9.1 on HFS partition (2go)
BootX as control panel (v1.2.3)
Linux Kernels in system folder (same as below)
ramdisk in sytem folder
boot contains : (HFS partition on IDE disk attached to Sonnet Tempo ATA/66)
BootX App (v1.2.3)
Linux Kernels :
miboot.image.initrd (advice from SuSe support)
miBoot.img (advice from SuSe support)
vmlinux-2.4.4-3b (advice from SuSe support)
vmlinux-2.4.6-benh (advice from SuSe support)
· BootX Extension
which hd may i use to boot (i'd prefer dd1) onto SuSe installer ?
seems although the IDE disk is recognized by the kernel (vmlinux-2.4.6-
benh) BootX doesn't give the right disk, reason for kernel panic ?
did someone have succes in booting linux on a IDE disk attached to a
Sonnet Tempo ATA/66 ?

Look at my web site (Linux Tips and Tricks) how to setup booting with
SuSE on new-world Mac, either manually either with LILO PPC.

Thanks, that was the problem. My system now recognizes the modem.
However now my machine gives
ppp error  no kernel support for pppd
I tried the same command "modprobe ppp" but nothing changed. Do you
know how I can enable kernel support for ppp?
Thanks again for the help-
I just installed Suse 7.1 on my G4. I've been playing around with the
gnu-darwin distribution on the same machine, but it's still a little to
raw for a newbie like myself :-) !
The install was incredibly easy( much easier than Net-BSD, which I have
yet to get running on the G4, only on an old 486), but I cant seem to
get linux to recognize my modem. Any Suggestions?
Appreciation in advance-
I installed Linux PPC (SuSE 7.0) on my iMac DVSE. I got it installed,
but when I power down or restart, I get a gray screen and find myself
re-installing. What do I do so it boots back into linux (suse).
Someone on the Debian List said the bootloader is bad and I should
switch to Debian.
Please don't let this be true, I paid 40 US bucks for SuSE and I don't
want to order debian. But I may have to, this is my second bad
experience with suse on mac. HELLLLLP! :)
