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.

That is sad, since SuSE was the best Linux for PPC.

Yellow Dog Linux is worth looking into. A news version with kernel 2.6 and
KDE 3.2 etc. should be just around the corner.
