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.

copy xorg.conf from suse and apply it to fedora.
Once again sorry ..
Hello. I just read throught the notes of the status meeting from
Tuesday. I apoligize if I missed the fact that my qestion about
support for the Old World Macs was answered at the last meeting. I
have spoken to Olaf about this, and I am willing to help out in any way
that I can. I have several Old World machines that I can use to test
updates on, but I am not a programmer, so I can't help out in that
area. However, a friend of min eis and he has been using SuSE for a
good while, so if anyone could let me know what areas need work on, I
can probably get his help on this to make these machines compatible
again. Anything else I can do to help out, please let me know, Thanx
I appreciate the time you take to give me any tips or tricks on
installing Suse 10.1 on a G5. I have never installed on a ppc before
and I plan on using a separate drive keeping my existing mac os(tiger)
as it is. I plan on going with lilo as the boot loader since I am more
familiar with it.
I am just looking for any 'heads up' you can give me. I have installed
10.1 on a pc with no problems at all, they were all great installs but I
seem to value my mac much more than any windows pc(sorry, just being
honest) I was hoping you could tell me if suse 10.1 installs as easy on
Once again, thank you for your time.
Thank you! I am new to Suse, and to installing on a mac but I am
familure with Linux, I use Mandriva or Fedora on all my PC's but I dont
want to take chances with my mac. I was even thinking of simply
unplugging the hard drive and just installing Suse on the second hard
drive alone just to get a feel for it. Any little tips and tricks you
can give would be appreciated.
I have the Powr Mac G5,
model powermac 11,2
CPU PowerPC G5 (1.0)
2 ghz CDU speed
L2 Cache (per CPU) 1 mb
Memory 1 GB
Bus 1 Ghz

Note on partitioning. I had previously mentioned that I didn't have
any issues using YaST's partitioner in v10.0. However, I have since
found that when you are installing onto a disk that aleady has MacOS on
it and is booted from that disk, you do have to set the disk up w/
pdisk. IF you are using a seperate drive for openSuSE, the partitoner
works so long as you do NOT use an Apple_HFS partition.
Anyway, I installed v10.0 on my son's PowerBook G3(Wallstreet). I was
hoping that the 466Mhz upgrade I had ordered would show today, but not
yet. The system was able to successfully install using the G3/233(no
back side cache).It is kinda slow, but it works. I used the
"acceleratedx=1" command line option in BootX, and the graphical system
works just fine using 15bit color. I'm hoping for a huge improvement
with the new processor, and hopefully it will be able to play video
with no problems.
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?
