Before I do research on how to do this, it is possible to do this right, on a
2 drive box, with SUSE 8.0 on 1 drive, Debian and 98se splitting the other?
I'm already dual booting fwiw..
Thank you for your time.
I am currently using a Dell 2650 Poweredge server without a raid controller. It's using the standard adaptec onboard SCSI as it stands. I'm wondering if anyone has installed the Perc3 raid controller and had the Linux install just pop right up (assuming the megaraid module was loading)?
I wouldn't need to reformat if all I was doing was switching controllers and hardware mirroring, right?
I would be thankful for answers to some questions: about wireless cards
1) Re: Wireless Ethernet Cards for Desktops.
How does one get Linux to recognize an ethernet card (e.g. a wireless card)
that is not on the list of supported cards shown by YAST2?
2) Re: Installing a PCMCIA card onto a Desktop.
I understand that one can install a wireless PCMCIA ethernet card in a
desktop with the appropriate PCI card. Is there any problem with Linux's
recognizing the card under these circumstances?
Under Linux 8.0, is there any problem with recognition and use of a wireless
PCMCIA? I read the relevant HowTo, but that installed under Debian and I
think (guess) an older kernel.
I am using a multiple servers with a KVM switch and I find that I lose
control of my mouse as I return back to the SUSE 8.0 KDE. Are any you
experiencing the same thing. I have tried other mice and different KVM
-I am using a Belkin KVM switch with hot key functionality for changing
-I am using PS/2 mice
The only way I can stablize the mouse is if I return to YAST 2 and try to
re-configure the mouse when it is a problem... Otherwise I have been
rebooting to get the mouse stability.
"No installation data found on medium"
"Could not mount the source medium"
Previously I was alawya able to use the orginal YaST to do hard drive
installation, I was never able to get YaST2 past the above errors, if I exit
YaST2 and start YaST everything works fine. It has always been this
way for me and I didn't mind as I like using YaST. However, I am told that
version 8.0 will no longer have YaST.
Does anyone know if version 8.0 of SuSE pro will allow paying customers the
right to copy the installation disks to their hard drive and do a complete
installtion and further updates directly from the hard drive?
If I have been skipping something, please let me know, it has been a while
since I installed 7.3
my curent SuSe distro installation disks are on my /hda11/7.3
thanks in advacne
I have just tried to access my USB 250 Zip drive in SUSE 7.3 Pro, only to
receive the following message:
"Could not mount device. The reported error was mount /dev/sda4: unknown
I have checked and ziptool is installed, I have a Zip icon on my desktop, but
obviously, something needs to be configured somewhere.
I read /usr/share/doc/packages/ziptool/README, but there wasn't any help as
far as I could decipher. Any ideas?
Last night i posted message asking on help to aviod my system shutdown
by it self.
Well put statement suggested in lilo.con in the appriate localtion
suggested but jut know the system in question just power off again for
no good reason.
I am running SuSe 7.1 Kernel 2.4.13 Mantel RPM.
512 MB RAM
10 GB (ReiserFS / ext2 /boot)
Matorx Millimum 2 MB (It's work machine )
D-Link 538 TX+ 10/100 MB
What noticed this occurs when memory drop below 350 MB the system
shutdown when i am going in to X/Gnome.
What i find strange is i am running RH 7.1 + Kernel 2.4.13 Kernel.org
with exact same MB/RAM/HD/NIC etc.. and all it well with it.
I have had this problems since kernel 2.4.0 .
I have checked RAM with memtest and it check out i have switched ram
from RH 7.1 Box with this one done memory test as well it check out but
I have always love SuSe but seriously thinking of calling it quit's with
I never any problems with other distro/kernels acting like this.
Any ideas :)
