New 7.3 system. I set the permissions to secure, if that has any bearing.
Logged in as root I try to create a new crontab:
# crontab -e
and get the following expected message before vi starts:
no crontab for root - using an empty one
I create the following entry:
30 8 * * * (tab) date
When I exit vi I get the following message
crontab: no changes made to crontab
and a crontab -l shows nothing.
I've tried with the default deny, allow files and no deny, allow files.
Setting root crontab works fine on my other 7.3 system.
I'm stumped. Ideas?
I've been toying with my digital camera (Toshiba
PDR-M61) for some time trying to mount it as a device
via its USB connection. Linux Format issues 19, 20, &
22 all had info on mounting USB digital cameras as a
storage device, but I'm still having problems.
SuSE 7.3 loads the usbcore & usb-ohci modules for me
usb-ohci 17680 0 (unused)
usbcore 47264 1 [usb-ohci]
Under /proc/bus/usb/devices the following info shows
up upon connecting the camera.
T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=02 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 3
Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS= 8
P: Vendor=1132 ProdID=4335 Rev= 1.00
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr= 0mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff
E: Ad=01(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms
I thought I was in luck when I saw the maker and the
model # show up, but the root console gives the
hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned
device number 3
usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x1132/0x4335) is not
claimed by any active driver
This is far as I get. Is this just a telltale sign
that my camera is not supported or am I missing
something? I only get 'unknown device' when I try
mounting as a SCSI drive (as all the sources I've read
recommend I do).
Anyone with some experience in this department?
Thanks for reading,

This is something I have not been able to find much info on so far - maybe I
am searching on the wrong keywords... anyway....
I am using SuSE7.3, vanilla full install. When I want to reboot the system,
I logout, and click the Shutdown button. That presents me two options -
Shutdown or Reboot. To the right of Reboot is a dropdown box. In previous
versions of SuSE Linux I could click that dropdown and select one of my LILO
options such as WinNT or SuSE Safe mode. Well now in 7.3 that box is still
there, but there is nothing in it. I cannot pre-select how I want the system
to restart... I have to wait and pick it from the boot menu after the BIOS
has doen it's thing.
What option have I missed (messed with?) to empty this menu out? How can I
enable it or fill it back up with the LILO options?
When I use Konqueror as a file manager, on opening certain directories it will
freeze with rapidly flickering patterns where the horizontal and vertical
scroll bars should go. It's a reproducible problem with certain directories,
but I've not yet established a firm cause and effect relationship with what
part of the directory's content is producing the effect (although I suspect it
may be related to image files). I'm running Suse 7.3 on an 800MHz Athlon with
an nvidia geforce 2mx. I've had the problem since installation, and it has
survived upgrading from KDE 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 (and to the latest 2.2.2 builds on
ftp.suse), from nvidia drivers 1251 to 2313, from kernel 2.4.10 to 2.4.16.
(I'm not sure if the problem survived the change to qt2.3.2, as that slowed
everything down so much that I changed straight back to 2.3.1)
Has anyone else had (and solved) this problem?
I have just reinstalled my main server system, and have grave problems
installing the printer. It is a HP 930C connected to the LAN through a
D-Link DP-101 printserver (plugged onto the printer itself).
I remember that my first SuSE Linux 7.3 installation on this system also
gave me problems in this area, but somehow I got over them. Now I have
struggled for a couple of days, and that is somewhat more than I expect to
use for a "simple" job as setting up a printer.
The printer and the printserver work, which can be confirmed by printing
from other nodes on the LAN. Furthermore, when I try setting up the printer
through YaST2 the test pages - both color and text - print out just fine.
When I get around to use the printer after the setup, nothing happens.
I have seen a patched apsfilter package which I have installed. Otherwise I
have updated the system with YOU.
I have backups from the previous installation, and I have tried moving all
the relevant files to their libraries, but this plan didn't work either -
The problem is that I don't get any output from the printer. With some
settings (adjusted from YaST2) the printer takes in a sheet of paper, but
then the job dies. With other settings, the job dies instantly. When I do
'lpq' right after sending a job, I get a message about the job being
removed. That is, the job got removed in the same moment it got issued.
What should I be looking for? I have run out of ideas.
.has anyone ever used ghost for linuxbefore. Norton Ghost is supposed to
support Linux products.ext2 filetype to be exact.
So I take my hard drive of my current machine called A and put it
another harddrive in it called B: then I start ghost and look for a
disk to disk copy and it tells me there is not a valid source disk in
What is the correct process to take a ghosted image file or to copy a
hard drive, the Symantec help site is no help and I cant find it
