Google can't seem to point me to an answer. I did a fresh install of TW a month
ago, 20201111 IIRC. On it the vtty prompts are naked, nothing but the prompt on
the top line. /etc/issue.net exists, but /etc/issue does not, even after upgrade
to 20201214. What else is missing?

I just started a newly installed Tumbleweed system, which now uses nftables
instead of iptables for firewalld.
The (new?) default zone for firewalld is public, so all incoming traffic on
interfaces goes there if an interface is not connected to a zone. This is now
the default; on my other system it is external. This zone "public" allows
"services: dhcpv6-client ssh". I will remove ssh from this zone and put a
number of source addresses in internal, which allows "services: dhcpv6-client
mdns samba-client ssh", so also ssh. This restricts ssh access only to these
I am puzzled about a new zone "docker", which shows up when I use
"firewall-cmd --get-active-zones" I get zone "docker" and in it:
"target: ACCEPT" and "interfaces: docker0". I can't find a /dev/docker0.
What is docker0?

I am trying to setup a Hewlett-Packard Color Laserjet Pro MFP M477fnw
Using YaST, the printer is seen and recognised, and the correct driver
for this model is found. Everything works as expected.
Using the YaST Scanner module, the scanner is not detected. I have
tried using Add, which brings up a long list of scanner models, but not
mine. Even if I select the HP generic driver for all-in-one devices, it
loads the hpaio driver, but says 'No scanner recognized by this driver'
in the Scanner configuration window. Using 'Run hp-setup' gets me to
the same list of scanners. Actually, pretty nearly all HP scanners use
the hpaio driver (it's part of hplip).
What is so frustrating is that both printer and scanner were working
perfectly a month ago, so something has changed recently. But what?
I have tried connecting the M477 device both wirelessly and through a
wired connection, but both give the same result. Something makes me
think that YaST's scanner detection has broken.
Can anyone confirm this or suggest a workaround?

I had to take out the video card. I know it was quite old. The computer
like it and showed it in various ways. Anyway, this MOBO has wireless. I
idea what the wireless contains. Is there some sort of standard? (I
don't even have
the antennas hooked up, but I have them. And I don't know what would
wireless. Or is this a replacement for a wired connection to a router?
(I believe in
wired connections, thanx!)
I had to reinstall from scratch all my TW but my /home dir and testing
Postfix I stuck on this:

Looking further into this myself, it appears that the hdmi port
of the mother board or a plug-in video card ought to have
audio on it. This does not seem to be the case. Plugging the
hdmi line into a TV hdmi input does not seem to produce
audio to the TV set. The mobo has separate audio ports
for input and output. However, the spec on the MOBO
(ASRock H310CM-HDV/M.2) under Audio reads:
"7.1CH HD Audio (REaltek ALC887 Audio codec) To configure
7.1 CH HD Audio, it is required to use an HD front panel audio
module and enable the multi-channel audio feature through
the audio driver." The spec sheet has a bunch of such
gobbledigook, some of which says to enable or disable
things related to the audio. But not how to do so.
At any rate, the HDMI port of the computer, on the MOBO, is
very touchy. It would not tolerate an HDMI powered splitter
box, that I put in to try and drive the TV set along with the
local monitor. (Both on HDMI at the time.)
(Everything interacts: I was driving the local monitor with the
DVI connector, but it would not tolerate an HDMI cable at
the same time.)
As a result of the above, I installed an old GeForce GTX 550Ti
and am now running the monitor and the remote TV thru
the aforementioned powered HDMI splitter and that mostly
works, except still no audio on the TV. It also takes a L O N G
time for the monitor to come alive at boot, and once it did
not--it came up in text screen.
I would buy a modern video card, but I have no reason to
believe it would work any better, if not at least faster.
I'd like to be able to pipe a received video (a Netflix movie, for
example) to a remote TV.
However, the video output of the computer has no video riding on it. In
order to pipe
the corresponding audio to the TV, the choices are to split the audio
coming out of the
sound channel on the computer and then run coax cables to an audio
amplifier by the
TV, or to add the audio to the hdmi video stream. (Like on standard
cable box outputs.)
A gadget that can do this is called an audio inserter, and the cheapest
one I've found
starts at $50. OTOH, there may be a way to add audio to the video before
hit the video card in the computer, in software. Does anyone know if
this has been done,
and if so, how? I seem to recall an old computer that could produce
altho I don't believe it was on an hdmi output.
Any thoughts, folks?

It is the INBOX folder of this account, over IMAP at my ISP.
As you can see, the contents of the email do not match at all what is
shown in the panel above.
If I look up the same email in Alpine, it shows "differently". A
different corruption, I have it saved on a file.
What I'm going to do, is move the contents of the entire remote folder
to a local folder, then back.
The other alternative is tell Thunderbird to correct the inxdex.
Has happened to me four times recently, since the update to Thunderbird
78.x (Leap 15.1). Also coincidentally, I tried an IMAP filter at my ISP.

Received a .jar file from USPS, regarding tracking info. It's not
critical, but Google says
that you can read it in the terminal with java -jarfile.jar. That didn't
doug@linux1:~/Downloads> java -tracking.info.jar
Unrecognized option: -tracking.info.jar
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.

Every once in a while someone lays a jarfile on me, and I've never been
able to open one.
I have a mounting set of questions about zypper, which don't seem
to be addressed by any online docs I've read so far.
I don't know if this is an appropriate forum, and am happy for any
pointers to a better one.
My issues are under SLES 12, but I find those forums relatively
unresponsive. I'm assuming that SLES's version of 'zypper' isn't
critically different than other SuSE-related distributions, so
hopefully this is a good alternative.
One such question:
One on SLES 12 host, I sucessfully installed 'createrepo' with
zypper, and retained the RPM package.
I've copied it to another SLES 12 host, and am attempting to install
it via 'zypper':
localhost:~ # zypper --no-gpg-checks --no-remote install -y - /home/prior_release_RPM/createrepo-0.10.3-2.8.x86_64.rpm
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...
Problem: createrepo-0.10.3-2.8.x86_64 requires /bin/sh, but this requirement
cannot be provided
Problem: This request will break your system!
Solution 1: Following actions will be done:
Solution 2: do not install createrepo-0.10.3-2.8.x86_64
Solution 3: break createrepo-0.10.3-2.8.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies
What is zypper trying to convey here? The local RPM database is
quite aware of the presense of the 'bash' package, and what it
localhost:~ # rpm -q --whatprovides /bin/sh
'zypper' seems to, as well:
localhost:~ # zypper --no-remote info --provides bash
Provides : 
bash = 4.3-83.23.1
bash(x86-64) = 4.3-83.23.1
config(bash) = 4.3-83.23.1
Some details of my environment; let me know if any others would be
localhost:~ # cat /etc/issue
Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5 (x86_64) - Kernel \r (\l).
localhost:~ # rpm -q zypper rpm
