I got some problems (disk access denied, bus errors,...) that led me to
go into single user mode and fsck my partitions. I noticed then that
there were some directories created in the tmp directory, called "dev"
and "etc", and one file in the / directory called "success" with 0
length. At reboot, these files disapeared. Does anybody know if this
could be a sign of a hacked computer ? I mean could someone have
installed a rootkit or some such ?
I'm not paranoid but this indeed seems strange.

I've just installed Suse 7.3 on a RS6000 43P-150.
The installation was working fine, but ... when I reboot the system, I'm
getting this error message :
Word called in boot-manager package not found.
Failed to boot.
Of course, I could configure the multiboot way, boot on the cd 2 and
boot the system, but I should prefer to find the right solution.
Thanks for you help :)

I don't want to sell it, and I don't have experiences in different PPC
computers, so I can't realy do support. But I would like to make public
my work and if SuSE wants to provide on there ftp-server it would be
very nice. For alpha there is also a comunity version, why not for PPC?

For how long will SuSE continue to produce security updates for
SuSE-7.3 on ppc?
If SLES is not an option, is there a future for SuSE users on ppc?
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you
give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in
judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
I'll be acquiring a couple of these boxes soon and hope to be able to get
Linux running reliably on them.
Is it clear that running SuSe 7.3 on them is the best option? I've seen a
few pages on the net saying that Debian 3.0 also works (though getting it
running appears to be quite a struggle)?
Does anyone have any links to installation HOWTOs? Any other
information/links would be much appreciated.
