I'm planning to give the Reiser FS a run-in (or should that be ruin?) and I
have a few questions I'd be grateful to get advice on:
1) Is the reiser support in 7.2 (2.4.4-4GB) safe? I'm not intending to
upgrade my kernel anytime soon.
2) How does it get set up in /etc/fstab? Is it just a matter of changing ext2
3) What's this I hear about tail and notail modes? I notice that mkreiserfs
has a '-v format' option which can be either 1 or 2 but it explains nothing
about what these mean.

I don't know about this particular error but, in general, it means
that you will get the disk replacement without much trouble. Don't
waste your time and get a new one.
If the problem is somewhere else (cables, the motherboard) then you'll
observe the same symptoms with the new disk ...
My suse 7.3 has been slow if I want to shutdown, or at boot up.
It came after, that I have had several main power drop outs during 2 days.
What can I do to increase the speed ?.

I have downloaded a diagnostic software from Seagate to test my
new 40GB Seagate harddisk.
It really is defective:
DST - Errors - Status: 07
Short test Failed:
What does that mean ??.

Well, I use them now as well, and am reasonably happy with the service.
I wouldn't actually say the support staff "knows" linux. Times I've had to
call, (which was only because I IpTabled myself out of the router -- idiot)
the service people were friendly and sympathetic, but with NO experience
of *nix. The fellows I talked to tried their best, and actually took notes
from what I said I was trying out (ifconfig, route and friends), but
actually told me that their boss was giving them dirty looks for trying
to "support" one of those Linux people. Their manual, interestingly enough
has sections on UNIX installations, which basically back out of it all
by saying that typical *nix users are smarter about all this stuff, and
should make it all come out fine by setting up their own flavor of DHCP.
If you know of genuinely *nix-savvy tech support folks there, could you
mention names? I'd ask for them by name at need, and send kudos-type
emails to their managers commending them for their Linux expertise.

This is the environment under that such paranormal success occurs:
- Epson Stylus Color 440 plugged to pararell port
- SuSE 7.2 proffesional
- Cups 1.1.6-52 (*)
(*) The one which mentioned distribution carries.
I've configured the printer under CUPS with the Epson Stylus Color filter.
Test page is printed perfectly.
Any other file are not printed.
(What a testpage!!!)
I've tried to print a file from StarOffice and it did NOT work. Yes, I've
configured StarOffice printer previously to use the one cups serves. I've
then used "print to a file" StarOffice feature and obtain a postscript file
that I've tried to print by 'lpr file.ps' but it has not work. I've tried
also to send the file through "kups" to the printer, but nothing happens.
In cups log I've seen the following:
I [17/Dec/2001:11:40:08 +0100] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops
(PID 809) for job 15.
I [17/Dec/2001:11:40:08 +0100] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster
(PID 810) for job 15.
I [17/Dec/2001:11:40:08 +0100] Started filter
/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoepson (PID 811) for job 15.
I [17/Dec/2001:11:40:08 +0100] Started backend /usr/lib/cups/backend/parallel
(PID 812) for job 15.I
So I think the trouble may be in some of these filtering processes, but
cannot say where.
I've tried changing printer parameters randomly, but I've no obtain right
results (it does NOT print or it does print trash).
The strange thing is that Test page is perfectly printed...

I just checked the SuSE hardware compat. database, and it was of NO use
at all! 'Can't even do a search on "digital cameras." Well, I can but
the search provides no data.
Does anyone know where there's a list of digital cameras (USB) that DO
work with SuSE 7.3?

Using Top, I see a lot of activity going on at something
called artsd. Don't know that program and could not find
anything on it.
And when I leave KDE for the console on my 7.3 version. I
see a lot of errors showing up.
Warning: leaving MCOP Dispatcher and still 13 references
This is followed by a whole bunch of: Arts:: Sample storage
The last line reads as
Warning: leaving MCOP Dispatcher and still 155 types alive.
I do not like such messages and want to stop them.
How? and what do they mean?
