I have recently acquired a new (old) server that came with a Compaq DLT Mini
Library. The library has room for 15 tapes, and has a pair of 35/70 DLT
drives inside it, along with a bar code reader (which I will probably never
use). Having spoken to a Compaq support person, it seems that the drive is
a Manatee or Manatee 2, if that helps. A search for this on the Compaq site
yields no results, although there is a reference to it on the Arcserve site
listing it as a supported device for their products.
I am trying to decide which avenue to follow for this device. I would like
to either use it as a back-up device or as a near-line storage device. If
it could do both simultaneously, that would be awesome, but I think that's
My question is, does anyone know of any freely available utilities that
would help with setting the device up as near-line storage ? I have found a
few commercial offerings out on Google, and Freshmeat drew a blank, too. I
can't spend a great deal of money on this as it is a home machine. I'd like
to use it get our large collection of MPEG and MP3 files off the hard drives
and free up some space.
Below is part of my fstab. I can't get the deff. of my usb card reader
right. The error I get is that there's no file system specified. Thanks
for any assistance.

that cannot reach its full potential because of artificial restraints."
I'm trying to write a small article using lyx with the "DocBook article
(SGML)" class, with dissapointing results.
I can view as dvi, postscript or pdf; but the TOC and the images fail to
be produced. I can not even view as html, no file.
However, I can export to sgml (or DocBook), and from that file manually
export to html using "docbook2html texto.sgml" on a console, and I get
better results: at least the html files are produced. The TOC is there,
but the images lack the extension on their names, so that the html files
have to be manually edited. Using "sgml2html texto.sgml" produces the same
But there is worse. The html production stops, as the conversion
jade:I: maximum number of errors (200) reached; change with -E option
and the html document stays incomplete. Thus, I edited the file
"/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.6/backends/html" and changed a line; it
$SGML_JADE -t sgml $SGML_ARGUMENTS
it reads now:
$SGML_JADE -E 500 -t sgml $SGML_ARGUMENTS
So now the document is fully parsed, but with many errors; it begins as

Using openjade as parser yields the same:

So I guess there is something very wrong on some package. It recognizes
My system is Suse 7.3, but I remember I tried with 7.1 with similar
results. Lyx was 1.1.6fix2; with this version, I could not even see images
inside lyx, so I updated from sources to lyx-1.2.1; this version has some
improvements, but the end result is mostly the same: the errors must be
related to docbook or jade itself.
What do you think?
I tried it with 'noapic' and my SMP kernel with the aic7xxx driver works!
Everybody a great thanx for all their input on this tricky one..... Now I
have them (system management) convinced they must use SuSE again instead of

I've got a hosed up lilo in suse 8.0. I updated the
yast-lilo the other day and apparently it has a bug
and really messed up my system.
about my box:
hde1: windows2000, set as default
(extended partition next)
hde5: linux swap
hde6: suse 8.0 reiserfs
(end of extended partition
hde3: dos shared data partition
when I attempted to add libranet yast went batty and
ran on and on...I finally stopped it rebooting and
when I was able to get back in using resuce disk many
of my base directories where gone.../etc, /bin/,
/sbin, etc. I had a mondo rescue disk and that
replaced all of it, but, I still cannot execute lilo.
My lilo.conf is fine.
The error I get when I run lilo is "sorry, cannot deal
with device 0x0102".
any way of getting lilo and my system back short of

I'm one of those long-time Windows users learning how to use Linux, and I
thought that this news blurb was worthy of the Mighty Microsoft Marketing
Machine trying to find a way to keep M$ Office from not being used at all.
I've used Star Office 5.2, and am now using OpenOffice that came with SuSE
It baffles me why an open source vendor would shoot the movement in the foot
with announcements like that..... even some of us goofy Windows users
recognize the efficiency of native apps.
I just got that USB camera for gift...
Now I was looking how install it under SuSE 8.0
I'm really scared now!
There is few modules, that requires compiling my own kernel, apply patches etc
etc... And common to all of them is very poor documentation!
This can't be right, right???
So, how to install that camera so, that I could use some SW to get
pictures/video out of it under SuSE 8.0 ??
now a silly one:
1. Am I right : all the scripts in cron-daily get executed daily ?
2. How can I switch it on/off ?
3. Where is the Docu for that one ?
4. Who (UID) executes the stuff ?
Sorry for being simple
Befor I start integrating raid with the 2.2 series of kernels, (see
linuxraid.org) need to get my hands on 7.3 first, just thought I would ask
the list if raid 0 is supported natively in that release series of suse
Issue is that I need to get RealMedia server up and running and the version
available only support 2.2 kernels (according to tech support) and raid is a
desired/requested feature of the server setup.
Many thanks in advance.
