This is perhaps slightly off topic, so bear with me. :-)
I am interested to know, how many of you, actually use a non-root account to
get work done. Since there is so many risks of constantly using a root
account, how in the world are you supposed to get work done without being
logged in as root??
For example, most of my bash scripts that I write, require the use of
certain files, which, if not ran as root, would require me to run numerous
chmod/chgrp commands to get them to run.
How have people, gotten around this??

The Purbeck School E-Mail server running:
if anyone plans on toying around with IBMs journaling file system "JFS", I
have created RPMs of the required userland tools for SuSE Linux 7.1 and
7.2 (i386) - they will be available from
soon. (The web server already has them, mirroring to ftp.suse.com takes a
while longer). A kernel with JFS included will take a few more days,
though, but we are working on it. The patches from the IBM web site should
apply cleanly to the SuSE kernel sources.
Feedback is very welcome!

You got to start somewhere if you're going end elsewhere.
Just got round to reading deps nice article on Linuxplanet (cannot believe
he tried that GCC/glibc upgrade...Tried that once and it failed to compile
and I did something else instead, glad I did that!)
I remember hearing awhile ago how close 7.0 or 7.1 was to the LSB, is
there going to be another comparison soon?
If dep is on the list still, did you try checking out the portal.suse.com
site? I have found it occaisonly useful. But "why" were this problems
Recently when I tried the tarball install it went well until I specified
alsa and a couple of others (I believe one was glx, but with an Nvidia
card it may have been looking for the wrong GLX). Videolan, for me, works
far better than Xine.
Being on the Creatures Beta they seem to have no problems, I could ask
them, but it seems very much like that games at least have settled on the
/usr/local/games as a directory to install to.

I am using 7.2 on a pentium 111 with 256meg ram and a Voodoo 3 2000.
Out of ths boax and with agpart complied into the kernel I am getting a
return from gears of around 86 fps. This seem rather slow, is there
soimething I can do to improve it ?
Continuing on with my APC installation on SuSE EMail Server II, it mostly
works. Pull the power plug, shutdown initiates, but apparently the APC
installation program mangled /sbin/init.d/halt. This is running on two
Redhat machines correctly, but the halt file is very different on those
machines so I'm not making good comparisons yet.
I'm getting a complaint of an error near [ @ line 102
I'm attaching the file here (it's small) hoping someone reads this script
stuff better than I will see an obvious mistake.
Thanks in advance for the help and pointers.
I have this problem and need some advice/opinion.
One of my remote office PC using 7.1 pro working as DHCP and internal DNS
running on Intel i815 mobo keep falling a sleep in the middle of the night
(3am, 7am, 11pm, etc randomly), and loss connectivity both locally and
remote (where my office is) when trying to connect the next morning.
The fact is it just need to touch the keyboard and it wake up and running as
it suppose to be. But this is a big problem as the remote site is unmanned
most of the time.
APM is not active, no funny logging in the /var/log/message but the log just
stop there? what can be wrong?
I have a similar setup using i820 PC doing the same thing in another remote
site and it does not have this problem. Both PC setup is almost (I
supposed) the same.
Well, I finally received 7.2, and I tried two types of installation. First,
an upgrade from 7.1 and then a clean install. Strangely, this time, the
upgrade went better :)
The clean install never asked me what kernel I wanted to run, which the
upgrade did. A bit odd, but no big deal for me. The default kernel worked,
which is all that matters at this stage. Optimizations can come later
When I first booted the clean install, the mouse wouldn't work, it just went
and hid in the corner and wouldn't respond to mouse movements. I've had this
before and it means that it hasn't been correctly identified as imps/2. I
decided to reboot and try the text install, but I forgot to enter 'manual' at
the prompt so I got right back into yast2. Imagine my surprise when the mouse
worked this time. hm.
The rest of the install went without problems (although my printer still
isn't supported :()
The upgrade worked at the first attempt, without any issues at all, I'm glad
to say. This is wonderful :)
The rest of the weekend will be spent trying to find differences from 7.1. On
the surface there doesn't seem to be much, but I'm sure there's a lot if I
