Having a digital camera my downloading of photo's still has
to go over dos because my pcmcia card reader still has
problems recognizing the smartcard in the pcmcia adapter.
I also have a floppy disk adapter which until now is not in
use because it only works under windows and some mac
programs. I searched around but was not able to find any
linux driver for this adapter.
Has somebody among us this disk adapter working?

I have SuSEV8.1. I had to login a single user to update some graphic card
drivers. the RPM installation went OK, but now when I reboot my system I
don't get the graphical login screen anymore. I only get a text screen ith a
How can I get back to graphical login screen?
i have SuSE v8.1 personal installed.
i'm just curious about how a current installation
handles new hardware.
i come from a windows95/98 background,
and i know how win9x handles new hardware
being thurst on it cold turkey.
i've done this more times than i'll admit, for
family and friends and at work,
but you can change out a video card, or sound card
and win9x will still function well enough until
you can install the new drivers.
i've changed out motherboards and win9x is ok with it.
shoot, i've taken hard drives with win9x on it from
one computer and stuck it in another computer with
different hardware and windows will still boot, figure
out that you changed everything, and allow you to
install the drivers for all of the new hardware.
win98 is the end of the line for me with windows, and
i am reading everything i can get my hands on concerning
linux and SuSE, but...... i'm just curious is all...
[[ and i would of course make sure that all hardware ]]
[[ was fully compatible first with SuSE linux]]
can i pull out a video card, stick a new one in, and my
current installation of SuSE would be ok with that and allow
me to configure the new Xserver needed?
can i yank out an old motherboard and put a new one in using the
same processor and memory, but a different chipset, and my
current installation of SuSE would be ok with that and not
cough up hairballs?
are floppy drives and cdroms so generic now-a-days that
they are interchangable in a current installation of SuSE?
[ i am assuming yes on this one ]
[ but 3rd party confirmation is always nice ]
could i buy a new computer system, minus the hard drive,
take my current hard drive with SuSE on it out of my older
computer system, stick it in my new system, and expect
SuSE to be ok with it?
is it just better to backup, re-format and re-install anytime
i do a major hardware change with SuSE?
are there any basic general guidelines to follow when changing
out hardware on a computer with a working linux installation?
my experience with linux is rather limited right now,
but if i have some idea what to expect, then i can plan properly
for it. and i am rather curious, since these areas don't seem
to be talked about much. i am also the "computer guy" for a lot
of people and they are starting to ask about linux, and in some
of these areas, i don't have any idea what to tell them.
especially, since i generally help people roll their own computers.
thanks in advance for any input.

Following my post last week, I've been doing some more with this. As Clayton
suggested, I recompiled Mplayer from scratch. If I start gmplayer, I can add
mp3s or oggs to a playlist and play them OK. If I run:
mplayer -ao alsa9 -vo xv -dvd 1 -dvd-device /dev/dvd
the film starts OK, with good sound. However, if I run the same list of
options with gmplayer instead of mplayer, I get the message about the PC not
being fast enough to play this. The relevant console messages are attached.
I then tried Karol's rpm, but this refuses to launch, with a message that it
can't open .VMG info. Again, the console messages are attached.
In the event, I have got Xine working, athough it does its usual thing of not
playing direct from the GUI - you have to go to the dvdnav submenu and select
one of those.
I'd still like to follow up why MPlayer isn't working as expected, though, so
if anyone has some good lines of inquiry ....
I have searched but not found what I want to know.
I have a TEAC CD-C68E 6-disc-changer and want to mount these
6 volumes to the dirs /mnt/cd/1...to /mnt/cd/6
Now, how do I tell the drive which CD to mount into the
mountpoints 1 to 6? It is /dev/hdb but I cannot address
like I would do if the 6 discs were partitions.
Thanks for help and experience-exchange. Happy 2003!

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 just obtained a new system that I can use for experients, and as I have a
copy of suse-8.0 laying around on my harddisk I decided to have that version
installed on the new system.
So I did:
- copy the suse-8.0 files from my "production" system to my new system (using
knoppix to create the partition and for the ssh server).
- dd'ed the bootdisk and modules1 images to 2 floppy disks.
- inserted the the floppy disks into the new system
- pointed yast to the partition that holds the copy of suse-8.o (/dev/hdb2)
- configured the installation (language, timezone, partitions end such)
- selected "continue"
- yast creates the required partitions
but at this point I get the following error;
could not mount the source medium, because it is already mounted.
it is indeed mounted on /var/adm/mount and /tmp/extras
Anyone know how to deal with this??
