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.
So.... what was the final solution to get Evolution going, anyway? I
installed the latest SuSE GNOME updates from the FTP server, and that made
GNOME 1.4 mostly functional. However, I can't get Evolution to work, since
there seem to be some missing libraries.
**** imagine; all of everything that is or was, can be reduced to an equation less than one inch long ! ***
Okay , getting completely and thoroughly discusted w/ verio , we have
gone so far as to contact bellSouth .. who , of course , tell us, they
"do not support linux" and wont even send us the modem unless we have
windows something on the box.. <heavy sigh> I still have a windows
partition I can fudge a bit for purposes of this experiment <g> tho
husband is seriously worried that w/o support we wont be able to use it
.. I can't imagine why, if anyone did support an OS I was currently
using , I'd have to see what was further out on the bleeding edge<g>
Anyway, any users of Bell South in particular , or DSL generally care
to share ? headaches , heartbreaks , willingness to suggest answers to
tech support type questions .. ??? Especially if you might be willing
to take this off list for private discussions, and electronic
handholding and "there , there , type soothing noises for Gil ( that's
the spouse <g>)
afterthought : DOS tip #17: add DEVICE=FNGRCROS.SYS to CONFIG.SYS.
I suspect that i am merely stupid and that this is the reason i cannot
figure out how to do an online update to the latest KDE release. It is
my assumption that i need to provide a directory string at ftp.suse.com,
but can't for the life of me figurre out what it is. Although i can
find the files, yast2 can't, and i never seem to be able to download the
right files in the right order to just run the rpm's myself. For the
sake of my crumbling self-esteem, can someone please help me.
What would be a good win-98 emulator for Linux? Is it vmware of win4lin?
I have tried the vmware that comes with SuSE, but I found it to be quite slow
what comes to screen handling.
Reason is that my spouse wants to go to Linux, but one bookkeeping software
and banking software needs win-98.
We are also ready to pay for this sw...
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.
I want to convert my record collection MP3 and I am looking for a way to do
it. Somewhere in my memory is a program that will record what comes into
the sound card and indentify the pauses between songs and separate them
into individual WAV files. Once in WAV, the conversion to MP3 is pretty
easy. However, it is this first step that has me stumped. Any ideas or
suggestions would be greatly appreaciated.
"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

Search for distributions containing the word "single" on
http://www.linux.org/dist/english.html. Some new distributions may not
be there (e.g. DemoLinux 2.0, http://www.demolinux.org/).
Also see the Bootdisk-HOWTO.
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?
