I have just a couple of questions I think someone can clear up pretty
1) I can't seem to get the address part to save in the Kaddressbook
program from kdepim3? All other info seems to be ok, the phones, the
email, the names, etc., but the address part refuses to save the data I
input there. Anyone else noticed this? It retains it while you have
it open entering data, but if you enter and then close and restart it,
the addresses are gone!
2) Concerning the XFree86 missing programs for 3D in 8.0, the DRI files
and some of the XFree86 files. Is it possible to use the files from
7.3 that are on the SuSE ftp site now to remedy the problems or will we
be seeing 8.0 versions very soon, so that we might get 3D going again
on our Radeon cards?

Subject: How to install single packages on hard drive
I have a question (sure):
Suse Pro 8.0, Yast - where is the possibility to choose and install single packages
from a locale directory? In Yast1 SuSE Pro 7.3 there was this
I trying to perform 100% percent of my work without using any MS tools or
products. I am successful with the exception of being able to open/save MS
I currently use SuSE 7.3 + KOffice. Personally, I like KOffice, but the file
filters are not the best, at least in my experience.
I have not used StarOffice in sometime -- is this a better option?
I have tried OpenOffice beta -- however, the installer locked two of my SuSE
boxes, so this does not seem like a good choice for office use.

I note that there are now Debian packages available for OpenOffice.org 641d,
and that OpenOffice is due to go 1.0 pretty soon, in time for 8.1
presumably. Will SuSE 8.1 be shipping with OpenOffice as well as StarOffice
6.0, one of the two, or has this not been decided/thought about yet?
Just interested to know.
WIthout a doubt, as a non-programmer, enduser with SuSE since 6.4 and
fumbling until I came across this list. I have not had *ONE* problem
with SuSE 8.0. I though I had with nvidia, but simply changing monitors
between tow desktops showed that 8.0 is SOLID from my viewpoint. I
upgraded one machine, not one quirk, I fresh installed two, no one
quirk. I bought the 49.95 USD$ version, so there is no question that
8.0 rocks. All of my machines, with the exception of my Compaq laptop
(on which I did the upgrade) are homebrew machines I might add. Even
installed on this box with an LG DVD-CDRW IDE drive, not one hiccup. I
have watched these threads and I would say overall, 8.0 is very stable
for an .0 release.
My $0.02 worth...

Is it possible to make an installation CD set by burning the files from the FTP site to CD? I have tried to just burn the needed files to CD, but that did not work. I know I can make an FTP install floppy set which allows for network installation, but I wanted to make a hard copy and install form that. If someone could point me to some documentation on doing this I would appreciate it. All documentation I have seen is for network installs, and why .iso images are not uploaded to the ftp (except for sparc's), but nothing on the necessary files to create installation CD's. $80 a year for the newest version is getting too expensive.

This problem with Konq is a real PITA.
I can't seem to get subscribed to the kde list (never get confirm), so I'll
Running Suse8 with all current updates. It has always been my practice to
run as a user, and to invoke Konq & Konsole in superuser mode when I need
But with Suse8 I can no longer (as a user) launch X-based programs from these
windows. Logged in as root I can, but not when as a user and launching from
these programs. For instance in Konq I cannot right-click|OpenWith|Advanced
Editor a file: "KDEInit could not launch 'kwrite'".
And from the su konsole # konqueror and I get:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
konqueror: cannot connect to X server :0
In user konsole $ kdesu konqueror yields nothing.
This looks alot like a security issue. Maybe the X server is intentionally
disabled from accepting root commands from a user. Or maybe it's one missing
setup step. Anyone know the answer?
