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'm sorry for sending you this query maybe you can help since I cant find
any info elsewhere,
Ive installed suse 10.0 on a b50 all is well there. The problem I have is
that I've set up another b50
With fedora 5 but I have a garbled screen problem. I was wondering if I can
copy xorg.conf from suse and apply it to fedora.
Once again sorry ..
I just read at http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=15025 that SUSE
is making a world wide beta test of SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop which
made me wonder: how much trouble would it be to port it to PPC. The next
version of OS X is rumored to be Intel only, so there will be millions
of machines with an OS not developed any more. These are pretty well
built machines, so they will be around for another 3-4 years.
I am very interested in installing OpenSUSE on my IBM RS/6000 43p-140
(PReP based) machine, but I noticed from the following web page that
version 10.1 doesn't have support for PReP:
"Note: 10.1 has no PReP support as it was temporary dropped from the
I am wondering if PReP support has been added back to version 10.2 Alpha
1? If no, is it likely that it'll be added to the 10.2 release?
When compiling the glibc on ppc64 (Power5) (SLES9 or SLES10), TLS
(Thread-Local Storage) support is not available. (See details below).
Can you help understanding the problem ?
When being in the directory where are the source code of the glibc.
Example here below: 2.4
(Same problem with 2.3.4 and 2.3.6 .)
$ ./configure --enable-add-ons=nptl --with-tls --with-__thread
checking for powerpc64 TLS support... no
#error "TLS support is required."
Test for TLS support is done by the
script of the glibc.
$ cat config.log
configure:7: checking for powerpc64 TLS support

This seems like it would be a simple problem, but on my iMac the video is
moved to the left 1 to 2 inches. On a normal computer this wouldnt be a
problem I would just use the position settings and everything would be
fixed. But on the Mac this is of course impossible because there is no knob
to do this.
So my question is, is there any way to make the video from my x server move
over to the right about 2 inches?
Thanks in Advance,
I tried to start the installation on my PowerMac 6500. It has a 250Mhz
603e, 128MB RAM, ATI rage II video.
BootX starts and reboots the system, but it locks up on the initial
kernel load screen. I have yet to try my Beige G3 or my 9600.
I have the same problem with v10.1. v10.0 boots just fine.
I have the following system:
B&W G3 w/ G4/400, 256MB RAM, ATI Rage 128 PCI vdeo.

Graphical installation also fails.

DIsk 1 was burned on my Dell Inspiron 2500 w/ K3b using openSuSE v10.0
at 16x. Installation starts ok using a 32x Apple CD-ROM. Very
sluggish and had read errors using a 24x Apple CD-ROM.
