For the interested, there is an update to the nvidia drivers in the 7.1 package
to be found on nvidias website ( http://www.nvidia.com ) If you install it in
textmode while the "Will now boot your computer" dialogue is showing ( in the
install phase ) then you can select glx/3D acceleration in the GUI selection,
without worrying of crashing your computer.

Why did the procedure for setting up scsi-emulation on ide-drives
change again in SuSE 7.1 (kernel 2.4)?
It used to be very simple, just adding the line 'hdc=ide-scsi' to

a lot of people who have difficulties getting this done now.

I got some old 486dx33-isa computer as a present. it has 2400 baud
optics at 8000 cdrom, 2x 200 mb at hdd, isa ne2000 included.
Now the question:
As we write 2001 already, what use has one still got for such an old
thing to be used under linux console environment.
hope you don't treat this as a joke-question.
I shall today give you more information as I did before to rise
possibility of adequate answers:
486 runs with 4 mb - is that enough for gateway-firewall-routing

Subject: Network card trouble
Last weekend I bought a netwrork card for my brand new 486 Linux server. It
was "NE2000 compatible and Software Configurable" First I tried to
configure the card whith the shiped diskette, which let me to set base
adress, an Interupt setting. Unfotunatly, this wasn't going to work. The
next thing I tried was to boot a one disk linux distro (from Toms ;) But it
only showed my already working NE2000 card at adress 300 IRQ5. Then I
booted the good old Windows 95, and with a lot of hacking I managed te get
my card in the Hardware list, without any errors ( at IRQ11 Adr 340) I
thougt maybe the card would remember it's setting when I boot back to
linux, but this was a big illusion...
- Any thing I forgot?
- Is there maybe a test tool to check if the card is functioning?
- Is it possible to attacht my 2nd Network card to the 1st network card,
which are in the same conputer, without any damage?
Thanks in advance..
After upgrades from SuSE7.1pro base, kde starts up *very* slowly,
whether or not it tries to restore previous desktop -- up
to 30 seconds until progress box disappears. A new window takes about
1 sec. This is on an unloaded 2@400mhz all-scsi computer, w/
linux4.2.2 and SVGA server.
And, by the way, in kde2.1, many apps (e.g., xosview, emacs) do not
get restored; but with same settings they did in 2.0.
I could really use some help here. I would like to customise my XDM login
and having read up about it have come to the conclusion that this is done
via the /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources file. However, changes I make to this script
make no difference at all to my login screen which has a white with black
text rectangular login box in the centre (with the heading "X Window
System). This black and white login box is what I want to change and I have
looked at every file in /etc/X11/xdm but cannot find the script that
controls it. As I expected, I can control the background of the login screen
via /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup but this black and white rectangular login box
remains completely mysterious!
Any help is much appreciated

The graphical login manager, I don't know what it's called, doesn't accept any keyboard input. The display comes up with the user icons, the mouse works - so I can select an icon, the keyboard doesn't work - so I can't enter a password.
I have X configured as I need it for users, if I start up a boot to stop at init 3, then log in, then do startx, then all is well.
