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.

it is a certain time ago, since I tried to install Linux on my imac. It
succeeded before, but as I tried
to install it again, it stuck in the installation-process. I´ve read the
different explanations in the sdb.
Since now I thought it was, because I changed the blocks and cylinders of
the swap-Partition by navigating
with the cursor-arrows in the expert-mode. Installation without swap and ram
set to 120mb failed, I got
the message "mk2fs1.19, 13 jul...".
The Installation stuck in different states of the process, depending on the
selected software. I can`t
remember, if it allways had something to do with Modem-Stuff, for which a
workaround is suggested, but
there weren`t Problems with it before anyhow.
Meanwhile I think it might rather have to do with a dirty
cd-rom-drive-lense, because it doesn`t work as
good as new anymore.
Is it an excluding fact for the swap-idea, when Installation fails with
higher ram, without swap-partition?
Has anyone experience in cleaning the cd-rom lense?
Is it usefull to take it apart?

I've got a PPC (PowerMac 7300 with G4 card) set up as firewall for our
student-home-network. Now one of my friends uses icq-phone to talk to
his girlfriend abroad.... and since I'm a nice guy, I'd like to allow
him that ;-)
now here's the config and the problem:
suse 7.3, kernel 2.4.12, installation method: suse predefined server
the mac is our dhcp, dns, masquerading server and also our firewall.
icq-phone uses udp port's 6701 for icq-phone (sniffed with ettercap and
a connection between my friend and his girl can be established, but
they cannot communicate... I don't know why!
for testing purposes I set the firewall to minimal security, allowing
all ports above 1024 to come in and out.
has anyone got an idea how I could solve this problem?
My only guess is that I have to to enable a port forwarding from the
server to the friend's client on the port 6701? could that solve our
thanks for any help!!

I'm trying to use yaboot (non-SuSE, but original),
and it's locking on nvupdate.
I tryed to use nvupdate by hand, and I discovered
that it is doing nothing. It hangs. I type Ctrl-C
and it stops without crashing.
Any idea on what's wrong?
Note, I'm using Suse PPC 7.3 on a IBM 7046-B50 CHRP
Yesterday I tried to install SuSE 7.3 on a IBM RS600 B50
(model 7046, the one without video adapter), I booted from
the console using the procedure and the images described
at the url :
the boot process works perfectly (from the OF prompt I used the
line boot floppy:,zimage root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1
console=ttyS0,9600 fake_initrd) except for one thing :
when I try to load the network card module I get an error
saying that is impossible to load the module lance32 ; my machine
has 2 ADM PCNET ethernet adpter, so the driver should be
the right one (I used it on SuSE ppc 7.0) , I also tried to
remove one of the adapters (the one on PCI BUS) but unfortunately
nothing changed. I tried also the autoprobing, but it didn't load
the network module.
Is there something that I'm missing ? could you suggest me something ?
thanks in advance
