Before I do research on how to do this, it is possible to do this right, on a
2 drive box, with SUSE 8.0 on 1 drive, Debian and 98se splitting the other?
I'm already dual booting fwiw..
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)

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
i just upgraded a toshiba laptop that i have run 6.4, 7.1, & 7.2 on,
to 8.1..................(just to see what all the fuss was),
wow! what a change.........install was a chore as this machine won't
boot from cd, i went through a whole pile of floppys before i found a
few good ones to create boot and modules disks.........anyway my
problem is during install, via NFS the pcmcia card worked fine - but
after rebooting, the cards don't seem to be working or the card
services are not starting during boot............the whole sysconfig
thing is new to me and so is this "hotplug" stuff, can anyone explain
how pcmcia card services are supposed to start now? i don't see
anything in yast hardware about pcmcia, i did find and set up the
network card, which BTW, i don't think i should have had to do
proud linux user since kernel 1.1.54
It happens now and then that our SuSE-8.1 server (P4-2.4G, 1G, 160G, G550)
hangs heavily with Caps Lock and Scroll Lock flashing. Does anyone on the
list know what could be the reason for such a behavior? I'm a bit suspicious
about the temperature in the box.
Thanks for your suggestions,
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.
