1)My last step updating KDE2.2.2(install kdebase.rpm) faces the
following warnings:after installing all other rpms of BASE.
- libcdda_interface.so.0 is needed...
- libcdda_paranoia.so.0 is needed...
I use SuSE7.0 and downloaded the KDE2.2.2 packages for 7.0
version of SuSEppc(glibc 2.1.3-172) so these components should
be present.How can I get through this?
2) -libXm.so.1 also lacks for kdebase-nsplugin.rpm(WhatŽs this
libXm.so.1 and where can I get it?).

Does anyone of you know about a website listing USB-CD-writers which are
compatible with (or incompatible with, in case that is easier) SuSE-Linux
I am running the said software on a 2 GB partition on my iMac, and I'd like
to find external CD-writers that are accessible via the Mac-partition (OS
9.2) as well as via SuSE-Linux 7.1.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
i'm trying to install suse 7.1 ppc on an IBM RS/6000 B50 server.
i tried installing it accordingly to the instructions on the manual but
was faced with serious problems.
after booting from the CD 2 ( CHRP Based computers ) the boot process

instantiating rtas at 00600000 ... done

returning 01400000 from prom_init
we have looked all around for help, including Suse's knowledge database,
google and other places with no success.
the server is installed with AIX and functioning perfectly. it does not
look like a hardware problem.
please help, i have never seen anything like it before and it is not

Is anyone running freeswan on SuSE 7.3/PPC with kernel 2.4.16? Mine did not
work because the module ipsec.o is missing. Rolling my own did not work
because the freeswan kernel patches did not apply.
Maybe anyone has already an spm for freeswan 1.95?
I had the chance to spend a few hours installing plain 7.3 on a Motorola
PowerStack Series E with 64MB RAM and a 604 CPU.
Not a whole lot of time, but I noticed a few things up to now that may be of
interest as I couldn't find comments anywhere on these topics.
- While I could boot the first CD, the machine froze after the message
"Uncompressing" when trying to set up the RAMDISK. Couldn't find a way
to get around this. Is the PReP CD boot kernel known to be broken?
- I used some very old (6.4?) install disks I still had somewhere to boot a kernel
far enough to get to the 7.3 CDs. Didn't have much success putting the kernel image
available with 7.3 onto floppy disks. They are apparently larger than 1.44MB.
- The PowerStack in question was AIX formatted. The install process will not
allow partitioning and will not(!) issue an error message. I used a separate
virtual console to manually pre-partition the disk to a DOS empty state to
be able to install the system. Took me a while to figure that out.
- Debian documents a "bootargs" PPCBUG variable which apparently the SuSE
kernel doesn't support. I hacked the kernel content for the root partition name.
Would be nice though if it supported bootargs.
- /usr/X11R6/bin/sax doesn't exist. Well, sax.sh does, but that's not what sax2
tells me. Anyway, XF86 V3/4 apparently isn't set up to support the Cirrus chipset
as both sax and sax2 freeze the machine with a black screen eventually.
Interesting enough, X itself starts up in 640*480with FBDev on top of CLgen,cfb8
but sax/sax2 won't ever. X freezes up the machine *very* easily on just a few
mouse clicks. I guess for now I have to avoid X.
- "halt" doesn't. The machine will reboot and doesn't stop. Actually, no PPC
kernel ever halted on the PowerStacks that I tried. Wonder why.
Ok, maybe some of this helps others, maybe you also have some input that could
I have an old PPC 9500 with a built-in scsi-bus (2 actually) and an
Acard PCI-IDE-Card (AEC6260R). I have SuSE 7.3 on the old scsi-drive
sda. The program does recognize the IDE-card and the drive attached to
it, but I get boot-messages like hde: lost interrupt, lost irq func
only, dma_chipset ???, and the drive is being probed for ages. I tried
to install Macos under MOL on it, but I gave up, because it takes ages.
It will probably run all night for an installation.
Has anyone solved these problems?
