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 have 2 pcs, A and B and a router R. raffic is routed from A to the internet
via B acting as a router to R and R routing to an ISDN line. Router R has
some capability of operating as a name server on behalf of the internat.
If I telnet R from A or B, it immediately opens the ISDN connection, which I
don't want, because it costs. Why is this and how can I stop it?
More info. B has eth0 and eth1 interfaces, and runs SuSE 8.0. It also does
OS/2, in which case everything works perfectly. I think ping causes the same
problem on Linux, but again not on OS/2.
I am wondering whether Linux sees the connection out and goes sniffing for
routing info or Name Server info or some such. If this is the case, I would
appreciate knowing what, and how to turn it off.
Any help on this appreciated, so I can complete the migration of B to Linux
Having this problem on two different machines, both runnig
8.0. A different 7.1 installation has no problem.
Xmms and Grip both do not find any files in /cdrom
with an audio CD in the tray.
Permissions on /cdrom, and the devices pointed to are
identical between the machine where the audio CD is found,
and machines where they are not.
Unfortunately, I can't use the 7.1 machine for the sound
editing work I need to do.

I'm thinking about getting an APC Back-UPS CS 350VA USB to automatically
shutdown my small file/DSL/firewall server (AOpen micro-ATX motherboard,
Cyrix M2-333Mhz, 128MB, 10GB IDE hard drive, SCSI cdrom drive, and no monitor).
Does anyone have any experience with this particular UPS?
Does the stock SuSE 7.3 kernel support a USB UPS or do I have to hack and
patch the kernel to make it work?
Recommend a similar model with serial support for under $100 USD?
I have basically a suse samba server setup. Eth0 is for the internet
connection (cable). Eth1 is my internal network. I use eth1 for my samba
server. When i have the shares/ drive letters mapped, whatever, Ill goto
access them and that computer will just lockup or timeout for about 1
minute, then it will resume operation normally. I have approx. 5 comptuers
on the suse server, and they all do this from windows xp to windows 98se. I
am using set up addresses of 192.168.0.x, where is greater than 2. My
question is have or is there something Ive setup wrong to cause this pause
to occur. ? Its becomming very annoying..and frustrating. Im using kernel
2.4.18-64GB-SMP with a dual processor setup. If anyone has any ideas please
let me know. Every package installed is orginal versions from the suse
install cdroms. (no updates done).
Anything come to mind. btw, ive replaced the switch, with a new netgear one,
and all the networks at startech ST100 Realtek 8139 chipsets on 100Tx.
I've been trying to play DVDs on my SuSE 8.1 box with only partial success.
Using either MPlayer or Xine, I can play DVDs but the playback is very
jerky. Playing DVDs on the same box (Athlon 1.2 GHz, GeForce2 MX/400) under
Windows is smooth, so there is definitely some improvement possible.
One possibility that occurred to me is DMA settings for the DVD drive.
However, under SuSE 8.1, it's running as SCSI emulation. How do I check
whether DMA is enabled - there's no listing under the DMA tool for the
What else should I look at, or do I resign myself to not watching DVDs under

Does anyone have experience with USB scanners and SuSE 8.0?
I've been trying to connect a Canon "Canoscan N670U" for
the past few days with no success. I even downloaded and
installed the latest sane/xsane which are reported to work
with the Canon using the plustek backend.
The scanner is seen by the kernel and is reported in
/proc/bus/usb/devices. I set the vendor and product id's
to match in the plustek backend, but still no joy.
Yast2 finds the scanner's name, but doesn't recognize it.
sane-find-scanner finds nothing.
Is there something obvious that I'm overlooking?
Imagine the following situation:
- computer 1 has linux running and there is a vfat partition mounted
- computer 1 is running samba on that vfat partition (i.e. the vfat
partition is a share of samba)
- computer 2 wants to have write acces on the samba share
The problem is, that computer 2 has no write acces, because the vfat
partition is mounted 755.
The samba.conf file is the following:
comment = Schreibbares Verzeichnis
How can I make the partition mounted as mod 777 ? Thanks in advance !
Hey guys i'm sorta new to Linux here, I noticed none of the SuSE FTP
mirrors currently have 8.1 on them. Am i to understand they haven't been
released yet? If they have been, where might i find them?
