*Audio CDs are not recognised and won't mount
Audio CDs have no filesystem, so noone can mount it. MacOS has a feature to show you the tracks, we don't have it yet.
I'm a bit surprised. I'm sure I had audio CDs working with LinuxPPC2000. No big deal though.
CD work with SuSE in the sense that you can here them, but you cannot mount them like a data CD. And this mounting will not work with LinuxPPC too.
*My keyboard is the standard Japanese keyboard (I live in Japan) but choosing the Japanese keymap doesn't work.
What is wrong? Wrong keymap? No japanese fonts?
Wrong keymap for English input. Japanese Mac OS puts it under the US keymap (even though it is different to a US keyboard) but neither the Japanese nor US keymaps are accurate for my keyboard in SUSE.
*MOL doesn't work after following instructions
I dont remember if i got the mol.rpm from the cdrom to work.. either way, i know for sure that the rpm at www.maconlinux.org works great. I have a first gen iMac DV SE (g3 400). You may have to install that Ethernet patch.. I did when I thought mol wasnt working (turns out, my /etc/molrc was wrong) and everything works great. I installed the Ethernet patch when i was booted to mac..then FTP'd the new Mac ROM to another linux machine. I then took that rom and then ran that strip_nwrom command on the new ROM. Make sure your molrc is booting to the right partition.. my molrc says blkdev: /dev/hda9 -rw If you'd like, I can send you my config file.. its currently setup to run only from console.. startmol from a console runs MacOS 99% as fast as booting right into the real thing (AMAZING!!) If none of this helps, please give more details about the problem.
Thanks. I'll give it a go and get back to you.
Hm, take the Kernel 2.2.18 from ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/ppc/kernel/2.2.18/ and the mol from ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/ppc/kernel/mol/ and you will be able to run mol with every actual MacOS. The version o the CD supports only MacOS up to 9.0. The version 9.0.4 and 9.1 requires the update.
*The latest KDE2 downloaded from suse today gives the foloowing error at login: "could not read network connection list. Check that dcopserver is running". The beta on the install CDs and a 2.0 version I have from another CD don't give me any errors and I can log in OK.
You may want to manually start dcopserver.
This is only a workaround, but no real solution. Did you really install everything? Maybe you have to put all the files together in one folder and install with the following command:
rpm -Uvh --force *.rpm
How do I do that?
One more question. Are the kernel.rpms from SUSEs ftp server good to run immediately or do I need to do seom tweeking after installing them?
You have to make sure, that yaboot loads the new kernel, but the kernel itself should run out of the box. have look at the Supportdatabase at www.suse.com. Look for the keyword PPC and you will find some articles which will help you.
