When I run yast2, it will automatically install
security updates if I wish. That's great.
I've noticed that the version of php installed on my
SuSE PPC 7.3 is 4.0.6, and that there's a security
problem in 4.0.6 that could be fixed by upgrading to
I ran yast2 and didn't see anything about PHP 4.1.2. I
don't know if this is something that will eventually
be put in the update list so I can get it via yast2,
or is it not the sort of thing that ever shows up? In
other words, am I on my own to update PHP?
I really like the automatic update functionality, and
I don't want to "break" it by going in and changing
configuration or installation stuff on my own. I'm
pretty new to SuSE and I've found that suseconfig
keeps a checksum so I have to be careful about what
config files I touch. Is there any similar warning
about yast2 and online updates?

Hi all - especially Olaf Hering,
I've been playing around with SusePPC for quite a time now... I
started on PPC with Suse 7.0, got a 7.1 and bought the 7.3 packet
few days ago.
I'm running SusePPC on my Umax Pulsar 604e@200 MHz including a NIC
with Realtek chipset 8139.
SusePPC 7.0 couldn't get this nic running, with 7.1PPC I could get a
conection after renaming the module, and with PPC 7.3 it's still the
IIRC this problem with a bad-named module was discussed on the German
suse-linux mailing list few time after 7.0 for Intel had been
Will Suse ever get the Realrek NICs running without manually editing
I'm thinking of getting SuSE Linux to run on my iBook2
since it seems to be better-maintained than the rest
(would have gotten it last month but SuSE people
provided an x86-only link to their XFree 4.2 update,
leading me to believe there's no PPC version
available, incorrectly at that).
The problem is, with SuSE 8 for x86 out by mid-April,
I don't really want to end up with 8 obsolete CDs...
so anyone has any knowledge of when SuSE 8/PPC will be

(this is a copy of the previous message i sent, but the address i used was
wrong. so please use this one if you want to reply to it).
I recently managed to implement suse7.3ppc on a G4/733 tower with a nvidia
GeFroce 2 MX graphics card and a 17" flat panel (apple studio display),
using the kernel recently posted on, eg www.penguinppc.org, by Ani Joshi.
Trying with the original 2.4.12 or 2.4.16 kernels did not work at all,
the kernel didnot recognise the flat panel properly (i was getting
something on the screen, but the synchronisation parameters were
obviously wrong, as all the boot information was squeezed in the upper
part of the screen and spread out throughout its full width).
I could not test the nv driver though
beacuse it requires xf86 4.2 to work and it looks as if the xf86 4.2 rpms
that i downloaded from suse web site cannot be installed properly (missing
a few libraries, libXtrap.so.6, libXrandr.so.1, libXv.so.1 in particular).
However, the colors are fine, and the whole desktop environment is much
nicer than it was.
Still i have a number of problems. The kernel that AniJoshi provided is
2.4.18-rc2, and i don't have the modules for it. It means that a number
of things don't work, among which the cdrom (hdc: no driver present), the
modem (cannot find the modem port), and probably many other features. it
also tells that hfs is not supported under this kernel.
Here are the questions that i have:
* would it be possible to get the modules that i would need for
2.4.18-rc2, or alternatively to get a new kernel rpm with modules that
incorporates AniJoshi's changes to make it recognise the flat panel and
nvidia graphics card.
* would it be possible to know where to get the missing libraries so that
i can install xf86 4.2, and test the nv driver for graphics acceleration??
thanks for any help. cheers, jeanfrancois donati

So I executed these commands as root:
linux # mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0
linux # insmod ieee1394
linux # insmod pcilynx
linux # insmod raw1394
linux # insmod sbp2
All looks fine. I can see the drive on /dev/raw1394 using gscanbus.
However, when I try
linux # mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt
mount: /dev/sr0 is not a valid block device
When I do dmesg | less I find the error message:
ieee1394: sbp2: Driver forced to serialize I/O (serialize_io = 1)
ieee1394: sbp2: Error logging into SBP-2 device - login timed-out
ieee1394: sbp2: sbp2_login_device failed
Stumped again. Thanks for your help, Michael!

I configured my modem and PPP through YaST and wvdial.conf in Suse
7.3 on my Powerbook Firewire. What I haven't been able to solve so
far is an authentication dialog failure between the modem and the
provider (my university). University modem pool support could only
confirm my settings but otherwise does not support Linux. Thus, maybe
somebody here would have an idea what I am still missing to get the
I tried to take over the settings from my MacOS partition for which
the modem is connecting fine. Those are:
Remote Access: registered user, username, password, phone number
Options: redial off, allow error correction and compression in modem,
use TCP header compression
Modem: 56k, sound on, dialing tone, do not ignore dialing tone
TCP/IP: Connect via PPP, Configure: using PPP server (there is a
nameserver IP, but university support said that that is bogus)
In linux the provider part in wvdial.conf looks like this:
Ask Password = 0
Auto DNS = 1
Auto Reconnect = 0
Demand = no
Idle Seconds = 180
Inherits = Dialer modem0
Password = [password]
Phone = [number]
Provider = UofCModem
YaST2 Record = provider
I am connecting using Kinternet and the log gives me the following messages:
Entering PPP mode
Async interface address is unnumbered (Loop back 1)
Your IP address [number]. MTU is 1500 bytes
Header compression will match your system.
-> Looks like a welcome message
-> Starting pppd at [date]
-> pid of pppd: 7356
-> PPP was killed (signal 11)
We are disconnected.
-> PPP daemon has died. Peer didn't authenticate itself (exit code 11).
I'm trying to set up a firewire cdrw on my Blue and White G3. I have
installed the latest and greatest kernel from the SuSE ftp site (2.4.16-55),
and have followed the directions at
I follow the following steps as root:

linux# modprobe ohci1394

Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Mar 7 01:22:16 linux kernel: ohci1394: PCI module init failed
I'm at a loss to know what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions?
