Anyone know if there are RPMs for Apache 2.0 for SuSE 7.3 available anywhere?
Or will an RPM for Apache 2.0 work if it was packaged for another distro?
I seem to be having a heck of a time installing by tarballs for some reason,
though I'm trying still.
At the least, does anyone have Apache 2.0 working on 7.3? If so, did you use
an RPM or tarballs? And if tarballs, did you encounter any difficulties?
Also, is it a good idea to uninstall 1.3 before installing 2.0? (Saving
configuration files, of course.) I know some programs have issues with
FWIW, I have the Apache RPMs from the 7.3 distro (version 1.3) working fine.
It's just that 2.0 has some different features I want to experiment with. My
Apache setup is home-use only, for testing CGI scripts and such before
sending to my web host... which uses 2.0.

So.... what was the final solution to get Evolution going, anyway? I
installed the latest SuSE GNOME updates from the FTP server, and that made
GNOME 1.4 mostly functional. However, I can't get Evolution to work, since
there seem to be some missing libraries.
I've been getting
gdbm fatal: read error
when trying to use man pages recently. Does anyone know what this might
A fix is to remove /usr/local/man from the MANPATH. There is actually
nothing in /usr/local/man except the standard man* folder. All the
permissions in /usr/local/man are the same as those in /usr/share/man.
All suggestions welcome.
I have just recently done a fresh install of SuSE Professional 7.3. I had a
running system that crashed hard (harddrive failure), and I had to replace
it. With my old system, the screen would blank after a period of inactivity.
The monitor would show a short error message "Invalid sync." and then
shutdown into standby mode. This was ok, and I figure this is how it is
supposed to work.
With the new system, I get the same behavior as with the old, providing I
haven't had any X sessions. If I have had an X session, the console blanks,
and the monitor issues its "Invalid sync." message. Then it shows the
message "Invalid scan freq." while showing wavy horizontal lines interspersed
with an occasional wide greenish band going up the screen. The monitor does
not go into standby mode. When I move the mouse (gpm is running) or type a
character, the console returns to normal, and the monitor briefly displays
the frequencies 38kHz/60kHz.
Could this behavior have something to do with the "vga=" line in
/etc/lilo.conf? The old system had "vga = normal". This freshly installed
system has "vga = 788" in it, I assume by default. Could it have something
to do with APIC? The entry for the default kernel, which I have been booted
into when this happens, shows the line: 'append = "enableapic vga=0x0314
The monitor is a 19" Cornerstone Color 45/101sf with horizontal scan rates
from 31 to 101kHz and vertical scan rates from 50 to 160kHz. The sync on
this monitor is Separate, H, V or composite H/v TTL level, or Sync on Green
at 0.3 V p. (I am guessing this last explains the green bands.)

I am getting Authentication-Warnings from sendmail that look like this:
Authentication-Warning: avalon.paulsen.org: wwwrun set sender to robert(a)paulsenonline.net using -f
(A little background -- the email is being sent by the "mail" command in a
PHP script. It needs to set the sender's address based on the user who
logged into the web page and initiated the sending of the mail. This is
why it is wwwrun who is seting the sender.)
I thought /etc/mail/trusted_users was supposed to let me specify that it
was OK for "wwwrun" to do this, but it isn't working. Perhaps I don't have
the syntax right. All I did was put one line in trusted_users:
But, I still get the Authentication-Warnings.
I don't think this was happening before I upgraded 7.3 to 8.0 so perhaps I
lost some other configuration setting somewhere.
I do know how to turn off Authentication-Warnings completely in
sendmail.cf, but I don't want to do that.

install the package java2. This is needed by OO. It is present within 7.3,
so YaST2 will do the job....

Okay , getting completely and thoroughly discusted w/ verio , we have
gone so far as to contact bellSouth .. who , of course , tell us, they
"do not support linux" and wont even send us the modem unless we have
windows something on the box.. <heavy sigh> I still have a windows
partition I can fudge a bit for purposes of this experiment <g> tho
husband is seriously worried that w/o support we wont be able to use it
.. I can't imagine why, if anyone did support an OS I was currently
using , I'd have to see what was further out on the bleeding edge<g>
Anyway, any users of Bell South in particular , or DSL generally care
to share ? headaches , heartbreaks , willingness to suggest answers to
tech support type questions .. ??? Especially if you might be willing
to take this off list for private discussions, and electronic
handholding and "there , there , type soothing noises for Gil ( that's
the spouse <g>)
afterthought : DOS tip #17: add DEVICE=FNGRCROS.SYS to CONFIG.SYS.
I deleted the .mcop and .dcop stuff out of /tmp the other day.
Whe I restart kdm my connection is full of martian source.
A PPP1 interface gets created and my cd palyer no long works.

I can connect if I use
But I miss the CDplayer.
Did I delete the wrong files, or not enough files?
Any clues on getting init 5 functional again? My wife wants to login.
At the moment I am learning how to use cdrecord and have been able to make
data cds. I am now trying to make a music cd from mp3s, and am assuming that
I will have to convert them to .wav files and then burn them to a disk.
I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good conversion tool, preferably one
that comes with the personal edition of 8.0. I tried using sox but got the
error message that it could not recognize .mp3 files.
Anyone got any ideas?
