No plans right now, but not before December, thats for sure.
$ man clone
Main feature not yet implemented...
I'm not sure if you are still building kernels as often as you used
to, Olaf, but do you have a working 2.4.19+ avaliable for download?
2.4.17 firewire is too unstable for my liking.
It would be much appreciated :-)
On my PPC G4 Cube I have installed SuSe Linux 7.3 with Kernel 2.4.12.
After many reinstallations one of the most important thing for me is to
make a backup, Since the cube has got only FireWire connections, I have
to do it through this port. Finally I arrived to activate the FireWire
with modprobe sbp2.
With dmesg the MO-Drive is recognised, but I can't mount it with mount
/dev/sda2 /mnt (the drive is not an HFS+-Disk!)
A CD-RW is recognised and I can read a CD (not write in the moment)
How do I have to continue?

I'm just looking for a recommendation for a trackball mouse which
works fully with Linux. Looking at the Logitech Trackman Optical
Cordless.... does anyone use this with SuSE 7.3? It looks like it
should run without any problems. Any ideas? Recommendations?

Since I am only a newbie I cannot tell you anything worthwhile I fear, BUT I
have a link that might be some help to you:
It's about installing and compiling your kernel (I admit, I merely
understand half of what's written there, but as far as I can see it should
get you a little further on your way...)
I successfully installed SuSE 7.3 via ftp today.
So far, everything works ok, but I cannot seem to be able to get any xfree
or kde/gnome configured. I have a Gravis TT (similar to Umax Pulsar) with a
plugged in formac proformance (using a permedia 3 chip by tdfx?!).
I started sax2 and it tried to detect any hardware bt after after 90 mins it
still tried to id my hardware, so I figured it crashed. (I used BootX with
the video=ofonly option, does this affect anything?)
How can I get my Linux with the standard 2.4.12 kernel to configure xfree
4.x correctly? Do I have to patch the kernel with the graphics card driver
like explained on this page:
Since I am a newbie I feel a little threatened by the CLI and would love to
get the chance to use a window based system for the time being..
Thanks for your help!
I am using SuSE 7.3 on a Power Mac G3 with Kernel 2.4.12.
I want to upgrade the Kernel to 2.4.18 So I dowloaded the Kernel from the
www.penguinppc.org page from Olafs directory , the kernel file and also the
I know how to copy the kernel file to the mac side and to choose it.
The question ist what do I have to do on the linux side. ( I know I have to
compile the modules etc..... )
Does anybody have a fast and stabe way how to advice me ??
Best Regards Alfred
some of you may have installed KDE 3.0.x on your PPC and may see a
problem with the duration of starting of an application. For example
konqueror needs unbelievable long to start and so on ... You may try the
experimental QT3 packages you will find here:
Hope this helps ...
