Reading some mails on the GIMP mail list, I ran across the procedure
to install some more fonts for not only Gimp, but the system and
StarOffice to use also. Well, I installed the fonts, went to the
shell and issued the command xset fp+ <font directory> and then the
rehash command and all fonts are there! Ok, that went well, but each
time I restart the system, I have to do it all over again? Is there
a way to make it permanent and read the new fonts like it does the
ones the system installs or is that a no-no?
end of line
xset fp+ <new font directory>
xset fp rehash

We received a copy of 9.1 today at work and I have installed this on three
machines with dissapointing results.
The first machine was an IBM Thinkpad R40 with a Centino 1600 CPU. This
machine worked fine and the performance was great.
The second and third machines were unusable, KDE takes serveral minutes to
start, attempting to start YAST for instance will take about a minute for the
SU box to appear and then another minute for YAST to load. I get similar
results for all applications I have tried, in all instances the system
performs like a P100 with very little RAM.
The machines that run slowly are both Athlon XP based machines, one being an
Athlon XP 2400 with 1GB of DDR RAM on an ECS Elite motherboard.
The second machine is an XP2000 with 512MB of PC3200 RAM on a PCChips
I have applied all the updates with no effect.
Any ideas would be appreciated, I've had to switch back to 9.0 as the whole
9.1 experience is unuseable has anybody got any ideas?

Yes there are legal reasons why SuSE cannot have DVD playback of those
pesky movies, but what be done? Would it be too expensive for
Novell/SuSE to license a codec?
Seems like there is a new copyright law in Germany that has made PackMan
be more cautious.
No one has made a player for Linux that is 100% legal, is it due to
I'm reposting this, because I think that it's been pushed down far enough
that people aren't seeing it. Basically, I've got my internal wireless card
setup as my eth-pcmcia-0 device. Someone said something about how it should
be bridged to eth1 and then I can use it. It doesn't seem to be doing that.
Can anyone help?

Thank you for your time.
Hello fellow Susers. I want to install Suse 8.2 on an Abit IC7-G with an
intel 875 chipset.Is the hardware supported by this version of the Suse
distro? All the HDD's to be installed along with it are SATA so I
presume tehre may be a problem installing them? Previous experience with
sata disks in linux had them working very slowly and I could no possibly
install the OS on them. Any experiences that a fellow user may have had
with this kind of motherboard/chipset would be welcome.
I've got a Samba fileserver working pretty well, but it would be nice if I
could have a web interface that allowed end-users to search for documents on
Sort of like a google interface to the fileserver.
The trouble is that a lot of the docs are in word, acrobat, etc.
Does anyone know an open source search engine that has converters? I've looked
at a couple of commercial search engines that would do the job, but I found the
prices shockingly high. (i.e. $20K for a 100,000 document index)
